Fun Graphic: Should I Change My Password?

By now most people have at least heard the name “heartbleed” if not been affected by it.  WebpageFX is an online marketing firm from Pennsylvania that took the time to create an Infographic to help people understand what makes for a secure password and when you should change it.

Maddie and Bianca

This visit is the second one where Bianca has spent time with Maddie.  As Barbie and I expected, Maddie remembered Bianca as soon as they saw each other.  Maddie would snuggle with Bianca every time they were both on the couch.

As Maddie gets older, sometimes she needs a little help when we go on long walks.  Today, Barbie and Bianca took the dogs for a walk around the lake while I was at work.  Bianca said she would keep an eye on Maddie during the walk and she would carry her if Maddie looked like she was getting tired.

The picture below was taken as Barbie, Bianca and the dogs were walking back home from the lake.  You can see how trusting Maddie is of Bianca in how she is being carried.

Iwo Jima Memorial

Our quick drive through our favorite monuments of the National Capital area concluded with a stop at the US Marine Corps Memorial (also commonly referred to as the Iwo Jima Memorial).  The simple size of this statue cast against the National mall in the background as you look at it make this one of my favorite scenes in the area.

The National Cathedral

After a quick trip up embassy row, we took Bianca to the National Cathedral.

Lunch At Rosa Mexicana

For lunch we decided to take Bianca to Rosa Mexicana; without question, our favorite restaurant down town.  It may seem odd that a couple like us who grew up in the American southwest would absolutely love a Mexican restaurant on the east coast.  But, Bianca agreed with our opinions and joined us as another southwestern native who really enjoys the flavors of Rosa Mexicana.
