I was hacked through eBay, and now have security advise

Some how somebody hacked my ebay and purchased an $800 pair of shoes. EBay caught it and notified me, but PayPal did not help one bit and didn't issue my money back... Luckily my credit card company stopped the money from going through. I did learn something though. Ebay was super helpful during a long phone call and told me about 2 step security... Its super easy to do. So if your like me and worry about this stuff now, the 2 step security forces you to recieve a text and type the code in each... More

Chicken Salad/ Tuna Salad

Since I always get good food advice here, I’m looking for a recipe for Tuna Salad & Chicken Salad. I don’t eat either so asking here. I have to bring a pound of each to a function. I could look up s recipe online and google it myself, but I’m looking for advice from anyone that makes it themselves and gets good reviews on it. I’m also open to buying it already made and embellishing it. Thanks everyone.

Does anyone know of insurance companies that will cover trampolines?
We’ve had one for the last 13 years we lived here and now our insurance is kicking us off and it is very difficult to find someone that will cover.
We would take it down but my kids live on that trampoline (by that I mean they absolutely love it. They have a bed and a home) ha ha!
