We were lost...

Well, not really but we felt lost without our computer! The laptop crashed and we couldn't post to keep you updated!

There has been a lot going on, but we wanted to start by talking about elections. We don't get to vote, but we hear Tara encouraging those that can to do their job and vote (or don't complain about the outcome...haha..she probably won't like that we said that!)

Anyhow, it has come to our attention that your voting information is not private. Being in Mental Health, we are BIG on keeping information private and were shocked to learn, like we always do, we researched it and Tara emailed the Director of Elections here in Lee County for us. Sure enough, candidates can get all sorts of information about you! They can know your party affilitation, if you voted in the past elections and how (absentee, in person, etc). The one thing they can't see is who you voted for, but the fact that a candidate can find out your voter history.......well, it is scary! They know if you vote in all elections, primaries, etc. YIKES!

This leads us to our reminder to be careful where you post information, because there is already so much information otu there about you that you don't want to provide anymore than you already do! Check your settings on social networking sites, text messaging and photos you take as many give away your location and you may not want that!

Stay safe and we will be posting again soon now that we have access!!
