One thing that does get opened, as well as closed, sometimes several times in a day is the garage door. Nowadays, most seem to be equipped with garage door openers that also function as garage door closers (you could really play a chicken and egg thing with this in your head, since a door can’t be opened that isn’t first closed and vice versa).Read more: “Open this . . . !”

As for me, I lost my “sents,” “old-mail,” and “contacts” addresses, but I got my contacts back through “Help.” It also happened to two other folks I know the same week. Beware! DON’T SEND MONEY!Read more: About Town, January 24, 2013
