Thanks to those that contributed the pictures. It was my pleasure to come up with the captions.

Amazon announces Alexa Guard ( https://www.amazon.com/b?ie=UTF8&node=18021383011
We can look at this added feature in two ways. If you're concerned about your privacy,
you might consider this just another invasion by Amazon into your privacy.
I look at this as an addition to my current remotely monitored alarm system.
It enhances some features and, for me adds random lights being turned on and off.
It also adds an additional notification for the items it listens for. I'm happy to receive this added protection.
You'll need to weigh both sides of this enhancement for yourself.
For me, setting this up was very easy.
Now all I need to do is leave the house to actually test this new feature.

You will be in more trouble with Alice (not Amazon privacy, etc.) if you turn the heating and lights off when 'you' are out and Alice is at home :)

I certainly would be. Plans are to only use this extra protection when we're both away. :)

Gmail scans emails for receipts and collects these automatically.

The purchases are neatly listed on a hard to find Purchases page on Google's My Account portal.
https://myaccount.google.com/purchases
The author of the article thinks this is terrible and in some aspects, he's probably correct.
I thank him for bringing this fact to my attention and am happy that I know know of a central point
where I can access my purchases. I've added a shortcut of this link to my bookmarks bar.
You may well agree with Mr. Brinkmann's view on this topic.

Very nice, haven't seen one of these for a while, whilst it is meant to be early Summer in the UK for the last few days it has been Grey and dismal, currently raining.  Fortunately I managed to dodge that when out for my walk.

Our bad weather usually happens towards evening. Storms, rain, hail, etc

Finding Kentucky on the US Map is pretty easy if you know what to look for.

This makes it easy.
