Going Dark

The Facebook (FB) forum has come to be the dominate watering hole for the social media. I “went dark” for three months because of the high volume of senseless pandering of political views and the incessant targeted marketing of unwanted products aimed to my viewing habits. No one missed me… Ha! I found some peace.

FB is as annoying as cable TV in its dominating data mining of it’s viewers habits. Both now determine and “profile” the reader/viewer into target categories. Yep, cable is two way and records your viewing habits. Both systems have become over dominated by direct market commercialism and “tailoring” advertising content […] Continue reading » Facebook

Experience 70

My 70th birthday is in a few days. I used to think that was old age. Now I know it is. But that’s OK of course, as it beats not getting or being there. Time and age advance with nothing I can do about it,

I notice I complain more about the things I cannot control. That’s a privilege of age and should use it wisely. I am going to have to pay attention and not abuse it (too much). Far better for me to work on the things I can change. That means by what I actually take action and do.

I like the tangible. Planning […] Continue reading » Experience 70

Bad Science

Click to Enlarge

The public knowledge is being overrun and polluted by bad science in the name of entertainment. I am seeing it everywhere and although I can recognize it for what it is, I believe there may be a great number of people, especially our developing youth who don’t recognize it.

The entertainment almost always starts out with a “what if?” or “perhaps” and then a “maybe then…” The producers are very careful to not say what they are about to present has any truth or scientific method proof. Then it is a license for the imagination to run wild as a form of entertainment.

SEO Search Engine Optimization

There are a bunch of Bozo’s (the clown) who think being first in a search engine review, to make the top of the list in a search. is the most important objective in writing a blog. They pound me with Spam posts and emails to “help” me obtain that superior status.

Guess what? I have no intention or need to style my writing to a bunch of cockamamie format rules because some search engine will give it a high “score”. I am also certainly not looking for assistance to do so.

I don’t know what they (the Bozo’s) hope to obtain by “helping” me style my format […] Continue reading » SEO Search Engine Optimization

Honor

 

What has happened to honor? It seems a lot of boys and girls don’t know what that means these days. I can’t call them men and women even when they are old enough. There are adults who have never matured into people with honor. Those who have no clue, think honor is only a military phrase.

Honor is taught (or used to be) in the military at all levels. Especially embedded into officer training. But “Honor ” is now a seldom heard catch phrase in the civilian world. Some current politicians and especially a few juvenile Olympic athletes are unaware of the meaning nor have a clue it applies […] Continue reading » Honor
