      1. I’ve been getting spam from a comment from 2014 to another blogs about page.
        I’ve been marking them as phishing/spam and not opening the links… which look like they could go to some very bad places… eek.

      1. School is very busy but great! My students are wonderful. I have a few hyper ones, but all of them carry good energy, so I’m happy with that. My son’s football schedule has me staying at work until 6:30 pm, when he gets out of practice. Then, it’s go home, cook, eat, shower, sleep, and repeat. Lol! 🙂
