Technology Love, Hate, Need?

Going through one of those days when Technology is fighting with me

Since I’m in the middle of another attempt to quit smoking I’m a bit easier to frustrate so the technology is winning this round For NOW…

Contrary to popular belief NOT Everything New is Good & Better than what is Tried & True so why do these social media companies insist upon “Breaking” what was working?

I went to facebook this afternoon & almost had a heart attack because suddenly some of my keys were not typing correctly – if I typed the letters in CapItol lEttErs I could get a word typed in but of course it didn’t look right & I wasn’t going to  just simply use ALL CAPS since I wasn’t yelling.

Facebook for some reason decided that it wanted to screw up I am a slow typist to begin with so after I posted about my problem I just left – came over here to post my little rant & will check back later on to see if after restarting my computer if Facebook has corrected their silliness or if all I’ll be doing is silent sharing or hanging out over on Blab & G+…

I Love Technology when it’s working the way it’s suppose to work, it enables me to talk to people from all over the world…

but when it’s screwing up I HATE Technology or actually it’s more that I hate when they “Break” the Technology to “Improve It” because that seems to be the main problem the programmers rush out a product that is full of bugs & problems & they do not spend any time in BETA with REAL PEOPLE & then once the bugs are all worked out start rolling it out slowly to those who want it first & eventually to everyone…

Well my rant is over; going to go spend a little time with my son who is home for a visit before he heads back to his ship in a couple more days.

Sadly the pictures for some reason are no longer connected to the original blog post but this blast from the past brings happy memories.

How quickly 10+ years has passed, so many things have changed but yet how much has stayed the same… yes I still get frustrated at how slowly things get done if I require for lifting to be done but at this point I’m just ignoring it because there are other things to for me to do…

God will answer our prayers in His time & way in the mean time we must just Stand On His Promises & fight for our families on our knees.

 

 

Feeling God’s Peace Today

Just a quick happy & thankful to God post
Navy Son has been a great help getting the apt into order
Navy Son had the place all ready for the moving of the futons
afterwards Navy Son showed us navy life on his laptop
while we waited to see if Byron would in fact show up
i had sent Byron 2 emails 1 asking for him to pick up a few items
the 2nd showing how the 3 of us were sleeping widths in the futon
which had Navy Son’s feet hanging over the edge of the bed
i guess a picture truly does speak a thousand words
yesterday Byron showed up around 2:30p
Byron gave me a few dollars to pick up the items i emailed about
Byron said the other items will have to wait until this Thursday
i think Byron felt a bit uneasy about Navy Son being here
i suspect that Byron was worried about how Navy Son was going to feel about him
but he & Navy Son hugged & they got right to work
& the futons are now moved into the proper rooms
Byron was in a good mood & he & Navy Son chatted about guy stuff
while they worked on moving the futons into place
Byron spoke to Navy Son about prepping for civilian life afterwards
Byron’s career choice in the navy didn’t translate to civilian life
so Byron asked Navy Son about what Navy Son’s training choices are
& the importance of making sure that the choice will translate to
civilian life job-wise
Byron was acting like when we 1st got married
back in the days when we couldn’t keep our hands off of each other
it was a very pleasant surprise to see that Byron was copying
our brief stint into video back in 2003 & sending the pics to himself via email Byron was very helpful & not only got the beds moved with Navy Son but
also worked on a few of the kitchen items a bit
so now the convection oven is working
he also put up my 2 decorative cup holder racks for me to decorate the kitcheni told Byron about the free tv i got for the boys room
so after a short break Byron brought the tv up from the car
he tried to connect it to the vcr but we didn’t have the connector cables
it’s not the greatest of pictures but for free it’s ok
so now the boys (Navy Son & G-son) have a tv in their room & vcr

Byron called one of the Comcast cable guys so that
Byron could meet him & get some short connector cables since we had none
mission accomplished althou Byron did get lost trying to find cable guy
which made Byron a hero with G-son & we all gave a cheer when Byron got back

I’m in heaven right now with my family all home safe in CT
Oohh our family is a long way from perfect but I feel that
God gave me a glimpse of what is to come in the near future

I ask for continued prayers for my fathers health in his pending surgery
that my father may come thru this fine & that the doctors will be able to remove all cancer

I have a peace today & i was able to sleep so soundly last nite
even thou i was the only one in the apt after Byron & the kids left

many nites after daughter would leave i’d feel sad, last nite i didn’t
Navy Son & daughter took G-son home to her apt so they could spend some time together
I was happy to see them leaving together chatting about this weekend’s plans
i know that Navy Son’s time is slipping by sooo quickly
they need this time together to reconnect as brother & sister & uncle

i think the only person happier than me yesterday was G-son
who’s wish is for us to live Dallas style like when he came into this world knowing
Pop-pop, Mom-mom, Mommy, Uncle Navy Son & G-son altogether under 1 roof

i felt good & peaceful which i’ve not felt in a very long time
i even felt peace about my dad’s pending surgery Tuesday morning

i’m praying that everyone on the boards can feel the peace which i felt last nite
& today even it’s still with me
i can only feel that this is the peace which is an answer from God

that althou it may appear that God is slow in answering He does have answers
God will answer in His time which may seem slow to me or like He’s not listening
but in fact God is answering my prayers in His time as He knows Best

Life is Changing Quickly

Who knew how much our lives could change in only a few short years?

This time last year I was merely a member of my RTC helping our local town council & board of ed members get elected, this year…. well surprise surprise I’m an actual candidate for state senate. LOL who saw that coming? I didn’t see it but I have gone ahead & made the choice to take an active part in the political process & work to make positive changes in our government at the state level.

Seeing politics from the eyes of a civilian that has not been politically active, it has been quite an eyeopening experiencectgop constitution dont mess with it abe lincoln quote Not just about the all the things which go into trying to run a campaign but also the process of it all. It’s been both a positive thing as well as negative in seeing just how dirty our elected officials have been in making certain that they stay in power.

I’m not liking the nastiness from people who have been friends fighting over their candidates, I do now understand why people say the 2 things never to talk about are politics & religion – some of the things I’ve seen & heard by people who have been at rallies together & picnics & bbqs… well some of it is way past mean & hurtful but down right heartbreaking to see from people that I respected & once held in high esteem

I’m also saddened by just how many people in the state do not even know what is going on but actually chose ignorance because they do not want to take an interest but only complain about what is wrong & nothing at all to fix it

So LIFE Changes Quickly sometimes for the better sometimes for the worst

We have choices in some of the changes & others we do not.

The most important thing is like the well known Serenity Prayers says “Change the Things that We Can”; I’m not 100% sold on the idea of accepting the line about “Accepting the Things We Can’t Change” because I’m not 100% sold on the idea that there isn’t anything that can’t be changed in some manner by Prayer & by Action of some sort

I pray that people near & far take some time to seriously consider life & what it offers & start to get active in it & start making positive realistic changes (0;} will you join me on the journey to make at least 1 positive change in life?
