First Week of February Happenings

February 1 is International Change Your Password Day. How often do you change your passwords? Is it predictable or strong? Do you remember what you changed it to?  Did you write it down and put it in a password protected secure place? Do you remember where that place is?  Is it on a sticky note attached to your computer? You know that camera's eye on your computer rotates and can see it, right? It really is not a joke you should have secure passwords and they can get hacked. Try and make it a challenge but not a challenge to you on a Monday.


The Department of the Interior is getting ready for their annual Valentine’s video, and they need your help.  Share your love story with us. Send your videos and photos of your weddings or proposals in National Parks, Wildlife Refuges and other public lands to newmedia@ios.doi.gov. Please submit videos and photos no later than February 5, for a chance to be in the Valentine’s Day video....and here they are Valentine's 2016 from the Department of the Interior.

February 7 Super Bowl 50 Denver vs Carolina 6:30 p.m. on CBS. Half time show Coldplay, Bruno Mars And Beyonce! It is bot that I watch the Super Bowl for half time and the commercials but it sure looks like a good lineup. Our area can boast of two local players, Carolina WR Philly Brown from Springfield, PA attended Cardinal O'Hara and Denver Broncos K Brandon McManus from Lansdale, PA attended North Penn High School and Temple. Best of luck to both of these young men. Follow the hype this week.  I'm sure there will be alot.
