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.

#VeteransDay 2015 Twitter Moments

#ThankAVeteran for the Freedoms that you have today
The men in my family have a military history & all have served in the fight for freedom
It makes me feel happy to see the honor paid to our veterans on the holidays

The widget below shows some of the Twitter Moments posted on #VeteransDay in 2016
#VeteransDayIsEveryDay for those of us who have husbands & wives & sons & daughters who have or are active duty in our military services

Tonight Hubby & I will go to a local eatery that is offering a free entree to my husband because they respect his time serving our country
Unfortunately my son said there isn’t such a place near him when he gets off the ship tonight down in LA but I do hope that one of the small diners near him in CutOff LA will in fact be offering free meals for our veterans too.

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?

Groundhogs Day

2014 has been rather hectic so far & it’s only Feb 2nd

I’ve decided to start yet another blog this year

The question is why bother when there are more than a few other blogs out there from years past?

Well I’m trying to pull together all those blogs from all over the place & put them into one

A long time blog has been lost due to non-use but it was full of my memories & thoughts & pictures at that time

With the loss of that blog the reality of needing to gather my cyberlife together into one place hit me

I’ve lost a few friends & family members in recent years & for my family to be able to find all of the blogs will be difficult

So in future years when the family wonders about events etc at least they’ll be able to come to 1 place to start understanding

We Parents do not get an instruction manual so we do the best we can in raising our children & interacting with our family

We make mistakes, but for the most part we are doing the best that we can

From the outside looking in most do not have a clue as to why decisions have been made but

In writing our blogs we tend to put out there some of deepest heartfelt feelings & thoughts

So this blog will be a combination of what’s going on now & posts from the past tossed in as I migrate those posts from other blogs in

As we all know the well laid plans often go awry so expect occasional confusion going forth

The current plan is to post at least once a week on life in the here & now

Then sometime during the week I’ll have a copy & paste from an old blog with the possibility of an update introducing it

Thank you for joining me on my journey forward into the future while reviewing the past
