Call me crazy, but I'd be just a little hesitant to post I'll meet ya at X @ 3 PM for the whole world to see. Am I being overly cautious about personal safety? Or is it a girl thang?

Read your quote and thought about my Dad.
He was not hair challenged, he was just plane bald.

He used to say "There was not room for hair to grow and have brains too".
The wisdom he had, I would have to say he was right.

You both were thinking/saying the same thing.

Barb, I'm with you. I wouldn't post that I was going to be some place at a certain time or place. It maybe just a girl thing but a person can't be to careful in today's world.

No, with reservations. Social engineering has been in existence for centuries. Many of us don't like to post schedules for fear it could lead to a victimization scenario, like thieves in the night. And true, it could. However the social engineering comes in to play when someone is really out to study an individual. They could go back through all your posts and piece information together that could compromise you or your identity, or leave traces of where you will be and when. Keep in mind that we all make mistakes and post things sometimes that can lead to just those types of "information leaks." An example is posting an email in this forum. It was done recently, and that opens up the potential for SPAM being sent to that email address.

An example is the trip to GC@CL. How many of us have posted when and where that is, and what our travel plans are, where we are stopping, etc. All of that information can be used for social engineering. The social engineering we provide through this forum is inadvertent and is not being sought out specifically by any individual. That is another scenario.

Social engineering is psychological manipulation of people into performing an action, or divulging confidential information. That is the one-on-one scenario, but through the gathering of correspondence and other means a person can obtain information piece by piece and put it together.

So, did you ever get the advice you wanted on Kaiser-Permanent Medicare?

Don't get paranoid, please. Just live life and enjoy it while we all can. It is what it is.

Judy, First let me say I am not a native Texan but as the saying goes I got to Texas as fast as I could. I'm sure you didn't mean anything negative by your comment "I just never really knew why anyone would go to Texas. Must be some attraction?"
but it could be fighting words for native Texans.

If you have only been to the Panhandle then you have not really been to Texas. Come back and plan to spend at least a month or more and really see Texas. If you want to see the Hispanic influence go to El Paso or San Antonio and see the Alamo, take a boat ride on the river in San Antonio and visit the shops along the way or eat at some wonderful places. Visit Corpus Christi on the Gulf Coast or Galveston. Go to Houston and Dallas and find two very cosmopolitan cities or go to Ft. Worth and visit where the west begins. Visit the beautiful Piney Woods of East Texas and some of the small towns that are history laden. If you want to visit some mountains Texas has that also, while not the majestic mountains of Colorado but visit the Big Bend country and there you will see some mountains. If you like music then go to our state capital, Austin and visit 6th Street. There you will find all kinds of music. Also, while there visit the University of Texas campus.

Even our small little Northeast Texas town of Paris has claim to the third tallest Eiffel Tower(we used to have the second until one was built at a casino in Las Vegas) but ours has a distinction that the other two do not have, we have a red cowboy hat on the top.

I have just touched a few things to do here in the Great State of Texas but maybe it will explain why people come to Texas. Please come back again and explore Texas and you will find us to be friendly and welcoming to our visitors.

Hi Wayne,

For the most part I agree with what you'd said. As a single female traveling alone, I do take extra precautions to assure my comfort level. It's probably more about piece of mind rather than any actual threat. Before I retired I had someone follow me home just so they could meet Sena. It scared the you know what outta me.

I will never carry a firearm. Can you imagine Sena finding it? I bought some pepper spray, but it is safely secured where she can't get it which negates having it. So, caution is really my only defense beyond 8 pound Lily. Oh, and a tire iron laid behind the driver's seat.

On a happy note -- the sun is shining and sea lions were playing in the river this morning. It's gonna be a great day!
