I'm one of those Seniors.

That was one of the funniest jokes I've heard in a long time I guess because it's so true. Thank you for the laugh of the day.

Password HELP
by: Wendy

Retirees, I recently started using Lastpass -- get it?
Last Password you'll ever need...

FIrst, do you realize how many SCAMMERS break into accounts every day? Too many. Even Facebook accounts, often are scammed... so sad. READ THIS AND DO IT. Ok?

Anyways, I have FILES full of passwords. Doing business online, I have oodles of open accounts all over the internet, all with user names and passwords. Sometimes I don't even know which of two email addresses I registered with... It is a HUGE PAIN.

Enter Lastpass into my life. I am using the free version only right now.... I don't need the paid version even with many business passwords.

Grab your LastPass today -- enter a bunch of sites and passwords off the bat, or as you log in to different istes, it will ask if you want to save. Perfect.
When you say YES, a new window opens, check it out, save and you will never have to deal with it again.
It's all automatic.

Lastpass will even encrypt your passwords, making strange passwords for each site full of random numbers and letters... I haven't done that, but might in the future.

Have been there actually I am still there!!

This is funny but really not so funny. I am still having troubles with "pass words".

I am amazed that so many frustrated tries with pass words and they have all been taken! Some one should wake up and know there is a problem here!!

One good thing has come from this, I no longer feel alone!!

Gratitude to Retirement on Line
by: Ade

I have always enjoyed the articles but today I have had a particularly nice time reading this edition. Thank you to all those who contributed.

My only complaint Wendy is that the newsletter seems to be few and far between in my mail box.

Wendy: Thanks Ade! Yes, I did the newsletter weekly before, but lately, I've been BAD. It takes time... something I lack in retirement. Hoping I can do better in 2015. thanks for the little KICK!
