Tonight is Marcia and Dan’s last night up here. They head home in the morning. We knew that getting back into the week and everything else would make for a tough time getting dinner together. So, after I picked up Eva from Theater (She got a really nice role this year) we headed to House of Fortune. However, Allison called to let us know that it was a Monday and it was closed. I remembered that it was National Cheeseburger day and so I told her that we should go to KC’s Classic Burger Bar. I did not have to twist any arms at that suggestion.
We had our customary appetizer of Fried Pickles but Monday’s are also $0.50 wing night and we got 10 wings to split as well. Allison and I got a Super Sport with Bacon to split. That is what is pictured above. It is a cheeseburger with their homemade spicy mayo sauce which has a name that changed and so now I forget the actual new name, but it tastes great, plus fried pickle chips and more. We split that which was a good idea since we were pretty filled up from the appetizers. There were plenty of shakes going around, too. Andrew, Dano, Marcia and Allison got them. It was a very tasty meal and a nice way to enjoy the last night with Mimi and Dano.
Now the kids are introducing Mimi and Dano to Beasts of Balance. It is a fantastic game for families. I did a review of it yesterday. Dano just scored 129 points in the game, the highest score we have ever seen!

I am the family I.T. support and now I can’t just answer the phone with, “Did you try turning it off and on again?” I have to take care of whatever comes along, settings changes, instructions and so much more. I also have to worry when viruses come up. Not only am I taking care of all of the devices in my own home, I am taking care of those at my parents’ house as well. I probably should have set up my new CUJO Smart Firewall at their house and got one for our house. But, when my CUJO Smart Firewall arrived I immediately set it up on our home network, which was a snap, and then proceeded to explore the features of the app.
First off, the customer service is freaky cool. I setup my CUJO Smart Firewall and the app and attempted to set it up with a Google WiFi that I had installed recently. I learned through the customer service that I could only use the CUJO Smart Firewall in a certain mode with the Google WiFi. However, I still had my cable modem and router so I connected my Cujo to that to prevent anything coming into our home as the first line of defense against hackers and spam sites and malware. How do I know that I am being protected? My CUJO Smart Firewall app sends me messages when certain devices in the house attempt to connect to these questionable sites. I don’t have to worry because CUJO Smart Firewall has these excellent features:
- BUSINESS-LEVEL INTERNET SECURITY
Detects and blocks malicious sites and hacks
- GUARDS ALL DEVICES
We’re talking phones, tablets, computers, baby monitors, thermostats, security cameras and more
- PARENTAL CONTROLS
You can control what your kids access online. Set time limits, schedules, and sites that are permitted. Apply access policy to any or all devices.
- CONNECT TO ROUTER, CONTROL WITH APP
The CUJO takes just a few minutes to start. Plug the CUJO device into your router and follow the step-by-step guide on your CUJO app.
- BLAZING FAST (built with 1GB Ethernet)
With Dual core 1GHz processor, 4GB flash memory and 1GB DDR SRAM memory inside. There are also Two Gigabit Ethernet ports on the device.
I like how the CUJO guards all devices. In the net few weeks I am going to be installing some connected items into the home. Digital Thermostat, Security cameras, connected doorbell and the like. With CUJO I know they are being protected from outside hacks. that is important to me.
