Big Brother 12! This season is shaping up to be another good one as usual. Last night’s episode was especially good, not to mention hilarious when Brittney was trying to teach Enzo how to talk. It’s amazing how one second someone may feel completely safe, and the next feel completely like their on the chopping block. I’m rooting for Brittney or Matt to win the entire thing, and I’d love to see Rachel and Brenden voted out back to back next, but as usual it’s hard to say how things will play out.
I received a call this evening from a 800 number that was supposedly fraud detection for a credit card I have. I’m always reluctant to give a recording any information that it asks for, like my social security number, full account number, etc. so I just called the number on the back of my card to verify. I listened to all of the recent charges, and sure enough, there was an unusual charge for $280ish from a sports place international or something. It amazes me how they were able to suspect fraud, considering this card has been used from all places between Dalton and Chicago in recent days. Not only this time, but even with the recent trips to Missouri and Minnesota.
And to the scammers out there, you guys are good. I wouldn’t even know what to do with someones credit card number if I were even interested in trying to rip someone off, especially considering if you are trying to buy something you would want to be able to receive it. So how you guys get away with this is beyond me, but when you do get caught for scamming someone, I hope you get busted, big time.
We came up to Elgin, Illinois this past Sunday for some training this week and next. Google says it was 674 miles, taking about 11hrs 14min. Probably the most exciting thing we saw on the way up here was the Bullrun Aston Martin while driving through Chicago. We’ve been staying in Elgin each night while having the daily training at Hoffman Estates.
On the way through Chicago, we saw this Aston Martin from Bullrun. I’ve not seen the latest season, so I’m not sure if maybe it’s a future season’s car, or current, or even past. But it was very awesome to see in person and shoot while riding down the interstate.
Being from Georgia where you never see the huge windmills, it’s always a spectacular sight to see when traveling to part of the country where they are abundant.
