There was a bit of confusion at the store this morning.When I was ready to pay for my groceries, the cashier said, “Strip down facing me.”
Making a mental note to complain to my congressman about Homeland Security running amok, I did just as she had instructed. When the hysterical shrieking and alarms finally subsided, I found out that she was referring to my credit card. I have been asked to shop elsewhere in the future.They need to make their instructions to us seniors a little clearer!

Can’t believe that Santa Ana, CA is only on 74th place and Atlanta on #2. I have been to more and bigger social network events in Orange County than when I lived in Atlanta. Then again Atlanta has many church sponsored networking events (… hence “Bible Belt”).
I am a big fan of TweetDeck and hardly ever use the native Twitter Web Interface. Every once in a while I go there to check my followers or to see who’s Twitter List I made.
When I called up my account this morning I had a notification that Twitter made me a Beta-User to test a new feature related to Re-Tweets of my followers.
Now every time I am following a person I can decide whether I would only like to see this person’s own Tweets only or whether I also would like to see anything they re-tweet (RT).
I also can go back to anybody I am following already and change my preference in regards whether I wouldlike to see this person’s re-tweets or not.
By default, if no selection has been made, you will always see the re-tweets of the person you follow. Right now I have not seen the actual value for myself on this, but I think it is a great feature and I can see that some tweeps just don’t want to see all the RT’s of everybody they are following. This way your timeline gets less cluttered.
Thank you Twitter for another great feature.
