I have had to change my address several times in the last couple of months…..from one apartment to another and then from my old house to an apartment and now from this apartment to a house.  I have little slips of paper all over the place with usernames and passwords, very few of them similar, because one required a number or capital letter or whatever.

So my suggestion is that when a child is born, they are given a username and password for life, just like their social security number.  These can be used for everything and will not be forgotten.
And why do some magazine websites make it incredibly easy to change your address and others make it extremely difficult.  I wish there was one website you could go to and list all your magazines and your address would automatically be changed.

Of course, we are not dealing with the most technologically savvy person here……..

Dear Martha Stewart,

Please cancel my subscription to your Living Magazine.  Your September issue was the straw that broke this camel’s back.

Do we really need to see your daughter’s luxurious triplex apartment in NYC, with all those expensive toys for your grandchildren?  Who can relate to this in this present era????  But the one item sent me over the top,  is the recipe for your Breakfast Cookies – 2 CUPS OF BUTTER and 3 CUPS OF PACKED BROWN SUGAR………for 8 large or 16 small cookies????!!!!!!  And then you label them WHOLESOME TREATS?  If you fed your kids this for breakfast, they would be dead by lunch or else in an incredible stupor.

Martha, have you been indulging a bit too much on these “wholesome treats”.
