Woho… The crocus are in bloom!

Woho… The crocus are in bloom!

Yellow Crocus

That means gardening fun is about to begin for us! The crocus blooms are a beautiful yellow and are quite cheerful. They are kind of short, like they were planted too deep but it still so great to see them even if they are short.

Do you have any early spring bulbs that are blooming yet? I hope so because I am dying for spring time!

box-of-personal-information.jpgSo, now that the ice is melting and the bulbs are blooming we are able to get into the large box of crap that was left behind by the people who lived here before us. Guess what we found? Personal documents and credit cards, can you believe that?

Teeni was just talking about how we all need to take steps to protect our personal information and then I find some poor schmucks personal information and a credit card just sitting in a box outside (that was buried in the snow) by the front door of the home we are renting.

Be responsible with your personal information guys! Shred documents that you no longer need so that nobody can obtain your info.. That way you are protected.

Once while we were living in an apartment complex we found a complete computer sitting by the trash can. We grabbed it thinking we could use parts off of it and realized it still had all this personal information on it.

The computer actually belonged to the apartment complex manager. It had the tenants personal information on it, rental contracts, notices etc.. We reported it and were furious.

Folks, if the personal information you are responsible for (yours or someone else’s) mistakenly gets into the wrong hands lives can be ruined. Be responsible and be careful!

  • I’m getting little purple ones…I’m not sure the name. Cute little guys. I’m about a week from my crocus blooming. Last year on Easter weekend I had a huge bouquet of tulips from my garden. This year I’ll have to buy some.

    That’s just crazy about the box of documents. I thought people knew in this day and age that you can’t leave that kind of stuff lying around.

  • I’m just stoked that today is the first day of Spring!

    WOOT! Beach weather is right around the corner (i tend to get overly excited over summer, living on an island and all.. .)

    Your crocus are beautiful!! Oh, such great points about the personal information. Lots of information gets left on old computer disk drives. That is one reason I don’t want the gym to have my photo, credit card, address and phone number all on their computer in one place. What happens to it all when they upgrade equipment or I’m no longer a member? Arrrgh. In this information age, there is no excuse for carelessness! Now, bring on the Spring!!! 🙂

  • I love the new picture! As far as personal info go, you can usually buy a shredder for under $20, sometimes cheaper at your local department store. Its a great investment.

  • Sigh. My crocuses are covered by 6″ of new fallen snow. And the daffodils (that were 5″ high”) are covered as well. I’m so jealous.
