for probably only the 2nd or 3rd time since my grandfather died in 1997, i dyed spring eggs (easter isn't my holiday, but same idea). it was one of those "our things" to do together, since neither my mother more my grandmother really enjoyed it, and we did it well into my 30s.

i wanted to try for a marbled and/or watercoloured effect, and i'm so pleased how they came out!

But do you have to be the one to give it to them?

When Elder Care Hurts: Caring for Elders who have been Abusive or Neglectful.

I know from my own experience that the final illness and death of the abuser is a wrenching process, no matter how much healing you've done.

For those who have seen reference today in the press to the "Heartbleed" security vulnerability in OpenSSL, we'd like to reassure you that although we (like a large portion of the internet) were running the affected software, we patched our servers last night and were no longer vulnerable from that point.

We have no reason to believe that anyone was exploiting this vulnerability against us or that any user data has been compromised. We'll be changing our security certificates for extra confidence.

On the other hand, the nature of this vulnerablity means that it's impossible for a website to know for absolute certain whether someone was exploiting it. If someone was exploiting the vulnerability, against us or against any other website, they potentially have access to any information you sent to the site, including your username/password for the site and any data you sent to the site under HTTPS. It's a good idea to change your passwords pretty much everywhere, but don't do it until you can verify that a site is no longer vulnerable.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
