Facebook changes the rules when you have 5000 friends… They forced me to accept two-factor authentication (2FA), which I have avoided for years. It is tedious and annoying, but recently they’ve improved it some. In theory it makes it more difficult for hackers to mimic your identity.

Dust my Broom

What exactly does “dust my broom” mean? In the 1800s, the expression “get up and dust” meant to leave in a hurry. In the Depression-era South, where the song likely originated, “dust my broom” meant to get out of town in a hurry. Big Joe Williams, who grew up in the Mississippi Delta, explained it as “leaving for good,” as in “I’m putting you down. I won’t be back no more.”

Howlin’ Wolf, put it another way…
