Hey, idiot, clear your browsing history on public computers!

Do you ever use a public computer, e.g. one at a library?  If so, you absolutely must clear your browser history before you log out.  Otherwise, someone like me will come along, and find out that you are cheating on an assignment for junior year english class, looking up "To Kill a Mockingbird" quotes in google, rather than, I don't know, reading the thing as you've been assigned.

Anyway, this is stupid, and lets say you were logging into your bank account, and someone stole all your money.  Come on, people.

In any case, the library here is at fault as well, not having a script to purge browser history on each logout.  Shame on them for incompetence as well.

You wonder at how people have their email "hacked."  This sort of thing is how.   Ppppppshhhhmup.

  1. I like that you are showing what you're using for bait and the locations you're going to; so many people keep that info to themselves. I just found this blog today (May 28, 2017) and I think it has a lot of potential. I think there are more people locally that would like to share their experiences and information in a forum like this; I guess the trick is drumming up interest. Have you checked out You may be able to find others there who may have an interest in your blog.

    I too have a canoe that I like to take out. I currently live on Fort Belvoir but may be moving to the Stafford location soon. I'm always looking for a good spot to fish. I'm not that great at fishing but I try. Around Belvoir I have caught largemouth, smallmouth, gar, catfish, crappie, striper, and one 9.5lb snakehead that I'm especially proud of.

    Lately I haven't been able to do any fishing but now that I have a little more time, I'm going to get back into the swing of things.

    Thanks for all the info. I'll be sure to check back.
