My views on technology, ways of life, entertainment, politics, and more...



Life in General, any misc thought that really comes to mind…


I was thinking the other night when driving out late away from town on one of the few clear evenings we have had of late, how many more stars that I could see. That brought me to the some memories of when I lived in the mountains of Virginia and I could see perhaps around a million of more stars that I was seeing the other night…


Ebates is a rebate and savings site that will, apparently result in either money sent directly back to you in the form of a check on things bought at a LOT of websites. I have not begun to explore it all, but I have already gotten a $35.00+ check out of a recent purchase as well as a $10.00 gift card. Definitely worth the few minutes it takes to sign up on just the change you will shop a place on their long list.

Snowmageddon II

Been a couple of weeks now, but we were hit with a second major snow. This second major snow amounted to about 13 inches in our front yard. It did impact travel and as usual the grocery store shelves. Thankfully, the impact was a short-lived rough 24 hour time frame (unlike the previous one that was over a week). Anyway, very pretty snow fall pictures once again…

Daylight Saving Time?

We are a week and a half into the change over to Day Light Savings time for the year, so I am little on the late side with this, but I have been thinking it all along. Do we really need to have Day Light Savings time any more?

White on white

I have seen this problem a lot of late and I am not sure how come it is so recurring of an issue given the simple ability to fix it. The problem is using the same foreground colors as the background color, or at least colors that are close on the color palette. And while I would like to say it is a problem that I have only seen on the web, it is sadly, something I have seen a lot of television as well, both live broadcasts and yes, even staged shows that were filmed sometime ago…

Everyone’s a Winner

I am sure this is going to make me sound like a major ass, but I am really tired of the everyone has to be a winner mentality. I strive to be winner in most things that I do, or why bother doing them? But, despite that striving, there are plenty of occasions when I am not the winner. I live with it and move on to the next thing that life has to offer.

Basic Rights

Raif Badawi was supposed to get a second part of getting a 1000 lashes (50 a week for 20 weeks) last Friday, but it was delayed for medical reasons. In addition to his 1000 public lashes, of which he has already received the first 50, he is to serve 10 years for basically expressing his opinions and wanting a little more of what most of us consider basic human rights.

4 Figures a Month Blogging

I am sure that everyone who is actively pursuing a blog with the aim to make a little bit of money on the side has seen some of these monthly reports of income broke out from the simple act of blogging, right? Some of them are even more going several month in a row hitting a 5 figure mark. I have to say it is fairly impressive and very inspiring.


I realized late last night (or was that early this morning?) that I was on the verge of completely loosing my mojo, motivation, muse, etc. After all it has been officially 2 days that I did not post here, but really 4 counting the weekend and that was supposed to be time spent working on other blogging projects, which did not happen either. I began to think about the awesome win the Wildcats had last night after a couple of off games, and obviously everyone has a problem with motivation at times.
