Weekend Concert Series: Carolina Chocolate Drops

Here’s a concert featuring the Carolina Chocolate Drops, a roots, bluegrass sort of group that has been playing since 2005, growing in popularity, winning awards, and appearing to have a good time doing it.

This is a well-filmed show at Nancy Jazz Pulsations in October of 2012. It’s a french show, which makes for interesting multilingual stage banter between songs from this very American group.

The reason to watch, though, is for the musical performance. It has an old-timey feel to it, and is a perfect laid back accompaniment to your weekend.

How to Spot a Phishing Spam

This is a real email I received.  Loaded with red flags that it's not legit, if you are paying attention!

1) Grammatical error in subject line

2) When you expand the From email address (if you can), it's obviously not an Apple email, in fact it's from Italy!

3) If your email program is capable of displaying the additional information, the time zone and coordinates are definitely not California.
