pg: sorry it took me a while to find it because I turned that on YEARS ago and I couldn't remember how I did it!  So I have Google set to sync across my devices and browsers (so all my bookmarks, passwords, etc., are available on my desktop, my laptop, my phone, and my tablet).  If you go into settings, near the very top is the sync settings.  If you hit the right-pointing arrow on the 'sync,' it gives you advanced sync settings, and in there, near the bottom, are Encryption options.  I have it set to encrypt synced passwords with my google username and password.  This means that every time you hit the little eye icon to look at your passwords (well, only once per password-checking session), you have to remember your frick-frackin Google password to see any other passwords.  At least I THINK this is what makes it do that.  I couldn't find anything else that might be doing it.

1Password is another excellent password manager. It also will generate random passwords for you, and you can sync it between your computer and your phone or tablet. We've been using it for years.

My brother, a fairly paranoid programmer, swears by LastPass, so I'd give that a seal of approval as well.

A lot of pundits like to portray Kim Jong Un as mentally imbalanced.  The game he plays with nuclear weapons development shows that he isn't.  Yes, he can make all kinds of threats against the U.S., knowing that we will do nothing.  We don't have the political will or national interest to get into a shooting match with North Korea.  The game is for the other countries in the region who are watching.  "Kim Jong Un is deranged enough to challenge the United States!"  Think of what that means for South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, the Philippines, and even China.  NK will never be able to compete with the U.S. militarily, economically, or in any other way. It's like a five-year-old throwing pebbles at Arnold Schwarzenegger. But you can bet everyone in the region is paying attention.

From that perspective, even Trump's rhetoric has a purpose.  All his bombastic responses to Kim's shenanigans keep China on edge. Which is a good thing.  Over the past decade, China has been growing impervious to economic and political consequences for continual human rights violations.  They just don't care, anymore.  Maybe now they'll be a little more willing to make nice with the U.S. to help contain Kim's ambition.

Iggy, you never mentioned how you got through your brother's funeral.   Hope  you and niece are doing well.   When I read your post, I wonder if it is any comfort to you that your brother is no longer alone where he is now.

I guess it is much easier for an outsider to see that really messing up stuff like your SIL has apparently done is pitiable.   A good example of "pray for those who despitefully use you". 

I went up and Niece's boyfriend turned the whole visit sour. I wrote in my word program what occurred, he said, she said, I said, we did. 5 pages of size 11 Arial Narrow with narrow boarders and 1.5 spacing set on 0 -0. Saved it to a pdf file and am in the middle of sending it all to Niece's other Aunt - Mom's sister. Mom will listen to her own sister.

My heart is broken for my niece and SIL. What I can see that needs to be done is get rid of boyfriend totally. Mom move in with daughter and Mom lives in the downstairs bedroom (it is quite large and has a fireplace and two daylight basement windows.) There is a really nice full bathroom there. Mom can pay the rent, utilities. Daughter can clean and cook (which she is passionate and OCD about). Get Mom out of the filthy house, get all the STUFF packed up and moved into the storage unit. Then hire a dependable contractor to come and fix Mom & Dad's home. Update appliances or remove them totally. What is there barely works. Rip out the nasty carpets and put down pergo [or something similar], put in newer, lighter cabinets in the bathrooms and paint everything with nice light colors. Get rid of the dark Mediterranean colors. Clean the fireplace, repair the furnace, update the windows and the sliding glass door at the dining room that leads to the back balcony - then sell the damn house. The houses on each side of theirs had everything upgraded & fixed and sold for $750,000 & $890,000 each. As her house is now she'd be damn lucky to get $400,000 for it.

Once Mom is moved in with Daughter - Mom's Sister and her daughter & DIL's need to go through all of the items in the storage unit, price them and SELL SELL SELL. Mom is a shopaholic. She buys things she doesn't even need, will never use. She doesn't even buy them as future gifts for the nieces and nephews. Her 3,000 sq ft home was filled from the floors to the rafter with STUFF. Never used, never out of their boxes/bags STUFF.

My brothers memorial will be this coming Saturday the 21st at the LDS Meetinghouse near his home. The only way I could go is if my little brother's son & his wife are going, for me to stay at their home in Portland, OR on the 20th- drive up and then spend one more night before coming home on the 22nd. I have a dental appointment on the 23rd and CANNOT change it.

My nephew and niece-in-law are living with her parents - in their garage apartment. So that won't fly. All the AirBnB's near the meetinghouse and within my price range are booked. So - will not be attending.

Lastpass also generates and maintains passwords, and isn't very expensive and can do it across platforms.

I guess Iíve been in the Cabin but neglected to post it here. Prayers continuing for California wildfire victims. :(

The one in Orange County, closer to the Ketchups & Crows, is mostly over. The ones in the Napa-Sonoma area started late Sunday night (the 8th) & took off so rapidly that 3-4 hours later, I had heavy smoke over my neighborhood 60-70 miles away. At least 41 people are dead, 350 square miles burned, $3B in known property lost (close to 6000 homes, businesses, & other buildings burned including almost 3000 residences in Santa Rosa alone), thousands still evacuated. I donít think I know anyone who has died or lost a home, but until this is over, no one can be sure. At least Steve & Theresa, two of my dearest friends who are just outside the fire area, are fine.

The current fires are around Napa, Fairfield, Sonoma, Calistoga, and Healdsburg. Midweek last week, the Oakland Temple (check map for locations) closed for 2 days because the air filtering systems were overwhelmed by the heavy smoke these fires produced all over the Bay Area.

For the record, you can put a master password onto Chrome's storage of your passwords, so no one can look at them in there without the master password.  I also use dual or two-factor authentication with my Google account.
