Tidbit Tuesday

Social media =  hi tech ways to spy on you.

I admit being on Facebook, but when it comes to clicking that I like something other than a friend's post, forget about it.  Ditto with the site's games, etc.  Those implicitly give FB, etc. rights to spy on you.

I think all those have some value, but the hype is wayyyyyy over the top.

Word of the Day

"Douceur" - noun [$100] pronounced doo sur with 'doo' as in phoo-y.
Douceur means 1. a gratuity, tip; 2. a conciliatory gift or bribe.
Sentence:  Bunkerman was very generous with the douceurs in his hometown; after all, with prices so low for everything, why not spread some cash around?
