My kitty will turn 53 in May. My oldest kiddo turns 10 the same day. Might be a rough day for this mama.

And just for fun, you can find out how old you are in cat years.......

I am 5.3 cat years. I like the sound of that so much better than my actual age.

Way, way south.
Classic:

https://boingboing.net/2016/03/30/man-has-his-account-frozen-bec.html

Chase freezes man's bank account because his dog's name, 'Dash,' looked like 'Daesh'

Bruce Francis transferred some money to his dog walker to pay for services to his pit bull, and wrote the dog's name, "Dash," in the notes field.

The processors at Chase Bank thought that Dash might be a sneaky way of spelling Daesh (which is the mocking, insulting nickname used by critics to refer to "ISIS"), decided that this was possible terrorist money-laundering, and stopped the payment, froze his account, and notified the Treasury Department that he was a suspected terrorist.

It's hard to know what's stupidest about this: that the bank thought that Daesh was the kind of thing that a terrorist sympathizer would use to help mark out laundered payments, that the bank subsequently insisted that "this is an important part of ensuring that crime does not filter through the US banking system," or that Francis himself thinks that being put out and branded as a terrorist somehow made him safer.

Even if you stipulate that money laundering is an urgent national security issue, fantastically stupid, nonsensical false positives just get in the way of legitimate enforcement. Piling hay on the haystack doesn't magically make it contain more needles.

I've been experiencing an internal struggle with this lately. Though this statement still holds true, I'm finding the thick cut bacon is sometimes too thick and the fat doesn't cook as well.

If only there were some middle ground

I heard the story about the dog named Dash and terrorist financing, and it didn't surprise me. Our tellers and deposit ops people have been lectured so many times about the importance of OFAC checks that I can see if the software threw out some goofy "match" like this one, that they'd stop the transaction until someone signed off on it. No teller here wants to be the first one to ignore an OFAC hit, even when it's obviously ridiculous. Now, I'll grant you, calling FinCEN was a step too far. Someone above the pay grade of teller should have had some sense.

LOL! Well, I am safe for today. I couldn't find any of them. I assume they'd already been sent out on lunch missions by other people.

So the wife asked me what that strange looking cut of meat was in the fridge. I told her it was smoked hog jowls. Never had it, but I figured it must be kind of like bacon. She thought I was going to feed it to the dogs.

I followed a white SUV the other day through four turns, both left and right, all the way into my subdivision, and never saw a turn signal. The final turn, without a signal, was into the police chief's driveway and straight into the garage. If the door hadn't come down so fast, I would have stopped to let the chief know his signals are broken.
