Here are some movie stills to remind you how much fun they are to watch. We all love Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) and his holiday adventures protecting the homestead while his family travels without him in the ultimate parental whoops! If you haven’t seen it already, it’s time! I’m looking forward to sharing the Home Alone collection with my family to kick off the holiday season with hot cocoa and a cookie baking session!

Last Pass And The Power Of Complaining To Your Friends About Stuff That You Wish Was Different

Last Pass Tool Bar Icon.I don’t know how you are at managing passwords, but I recently encountered a site that requires me to change my passwords every 90 days. Ugg! I try not to complain. I really do. If you read my blog or my magazine articles on EncinoMom.com, you know, I am decidedly committed to writing about the upside of life!

Well, I am human. No big surprise there. Recently, I was on the phone with my Master Mind group. Okay, maybe group is too strong a word. There are only two of us, but we have more ideas than an army of workers could ever implement, so we’re good for now.

Anyway, we were on our weekly call and I shared my frustration. Clever business owner that she is, Felicia told me about Last Pass. We didn’t spend a long time talking about it. All she said was, since she started using their free service, she has never looked back. She only has to remember ONE password and the site is safe and secure.

As soon as we wrapped up our call, or maybe even before we hung up, I was on the Last Pass site. Here’s a link for your convenience. I don’t know if they give you anything for telling people about them, but I consider it a public service! If they give me something, I’ll share it with Felicia!

I’ve been using the site for a couple of months and couldn’t be happier. By the way, Felicia helps families prepare a financial strategy to pay for college. Even if your kid gets a scholarship, did you know that there is an expected family contribution? Yeah, me either. Here’s a link to her site, too: College Funding Resource.

My startup screen this morning. This is not a joke!

While I’m on the subject of complaining, here’s a screenshot a what I saw when I turned on my computer this morning. Just sayin’. May be time to upgrade my life a little.

If you’ve tried Last Pass and have comments, I’d love to know how your experience has been.
