Unattended Google Searches

The unattended google search. You read about it, you discount it, you say Naaaaaaaaah...that's something that happens to other people, it'll never happen to me and my kids.

It always happens to other families, doesn't it?

Except when it happens to yours.


My post at Aiming Low today, on what we saw when we saw the Unattended Google Search.

**In some exciting family news, our oldest son, Alexander, 16, has been chosen to attend an intensive civil education program known as the Civil Leadership Academy, in Washington, D.C. for one week. He was the only cadet chosen in the state of Wisconsin, and one of only 24 chosen nationwide. He leaves today for one week. When he completes the program, he and the other cadets will present before Capitol Hill legislators.


We are very proud. 

Thank you for allowing me to brag a little. He's a great kid.

  1. One of my posts actually generates searches for something totally NOT what my post is about. Embarrasses the poop out of me. I've even considered deleting the darn thing! Who knew something so innocuous could do that??? (I do, now)

  7. When the Badgers went to the Rose Bowl in 2000 we were preparing to be there rooting them on. I was at work and I thought I would find out what might be happening in Pasadena while we were there. So I typed in "Pasadena.com" into my browser and was treated to an eyeful! Not sure exactly how that city name could be linked to a XXX but it was!

    Congratulations on your son's achievement! So much to be proud and thankful for!
    Enjoy the day, Empress!
