Season's Greetings & Sony's Problems

It's the holidays... and in the spirit of giving, I'm headed to Southern California to solve Sony's problems.  Yes indeed, as I slave away on my iPad on the beaches of Malibu, I'll be offering some PR pointers to Sony Pictures on how to stand up to terrorists.  I'm hoping George Clooney will assist me ;-)

In my sunny absence from ActiveRain, I'll leave you with tidings of great joy from my home to yours.  Here's wishing each one of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  Blessings from a Naked Blogger ;-)

Mel, Have a safe trip and enjoy your time in Southern California.  Best of luck with Sony. When you are done there can you go to the White House and help you know who and his staff too?

Merry Christmas ... loved your video.

Have a wonderful time in California and if you need an assistant give me a call,  I have a few thoughts to share and I might as well get paid for them.

Mel  Merry Christmas to you and George Clooney!  Enjoy the beach and I see already you got Sony straightened out.

Hello, beautiful! I meant to get here earlier and had unexpected company drop in! No worries--break out the libation, give the "newbies" a tour of the home and all's GOOD!

Say hello to the sun for us you lucky dog/dame! Love this idea of solving the world's hacking problems while on the beach. 

                         Happy Holidays from your friend at Fishhawk Lake!

Lol John!  I heard a not-so-funny story about Sony execs who showed up to work the 'morning after' to find a skull with cross bones on their computers with a message... You've been hacked!  Unfortunately, the hackers got more than just a few employee email addresses.  All Sony employees are being offered credit monitoring for 1 year... compliments of Santa Sony!  :-\

Hey Gayle girl... Another great pick of those doggone cute pups!  Now stop working and enjoy a glass wine with your other cute pup ;-)  Blessings friend!  Hope to see you girls soon when life chills a bit ;-)

Mel, Enjoy your time on the beach and stick it...er, I mean give Sony heck for bowing down to senseless threats! Merry Christmas, you have a beautiful family, chickens and all! <3
