So I got my haircut yesterday. More like a hairCHOP. I hadn't cut my hair in over a year and it was all the way down my back. Loved having the long hair for a long time but it was time. When something becomes more hassle than joy, it's time to go. So I went to my hairdresser and had her cut over 12 inches off. Oh yes, I have SASSY hair now. Plus since I cut so much off, I'm donating it to Pantene's "Beautiful Lengths" who provide free wigs to girls and women who have lost their hair in their battle against cancer. YES!!!
Probably one of the most annoying experiences ever is those auto playing ads that pop up on a web page. Nothing can ruin a page visit faster than a loud, obnoxious ads that automatically starts playing somewhere on thepage. How can you stop it? Depends on what web browser you use.

Doing a big ol' HAPPY DANCE today!! A dear friend of mine, Niki, has been battling melanoma for the last year and half. Cancer came out of NOWHERE and walloped her life in a big way. She's been fighting back tumors in her brain and a softball size tumor in her lung. Yeah, I know...very scary stuff. She had part of her right lung removed a few weeks ago and has been carrying this pump-thing ever since because there was a microscopic hole in her lung (she literally had a tube connected from the inside of her lung to this pump thing to maintain suction so her lung wouldn't collapse. OMG!) Took 5 weeks but the little hole HEALED so she was able to have the tube removed & no longer has to carry that suction/pump doo-hickey around. That is cause for much celebration!! Next up, beating back those brain tumors!!
Anytime I'm having a bad day or don't feel 100%, I remember what Niki is dealing with and I shut my mouth. My prayers are with her and anyone fighting this horrible disease. Yo cancer-no one invited you to the party so GET OUT!!

Federal officials continue to investigate hacking claims that led to the online leaks of nude pics of stars such as Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. Reports indicate that as many as 100 celebrities might have been hacked (and their photos saved) leading to speculation that more clandestinely-acquired celebrity nudes might be leaked in the future.
A bug in Apple's iCloud, the company's cloud system that automatically backs up some phone data, may have played a part in the hack. Apple is investigating. Check out these 3 easy steps you can take to keep your phone photos safe from online hacking
