Stretching credulity

Wow. I’m serious. Even I have trouble believing it and I just went through it myself. I need you to bear witness and you tell me if this chain of events, at its conclusion, is stretching credulity. It starts, as too many of these posts begin, with the ubiquitous Comcast. Yes, folks, more issues with… Read more »

The mysterious return of the mixed blessing

Despite all the recent turmoil over Facebook’s responsibility and transparency, that’s not the hottest I’ve been about the social platform. Nope, I’ve had more pressing personal and professional grievances. Unexplained changes vexed me. And now arrives the mysterious return of the mixed blessing. I can take you back to just a few short weeks ago…. Read more »

Upon which side sit my better angels?

Producing a blog can be a reasonably comfortable affair. Even those, like mine, that attempt to create a new post every day. Unlike mine, though, many of those blogs stick to a single subject. The dilemma in a rambling blog like this one is the debate over what subject matter should be included. And that’s… Read more »

Save me from great ideas

Once again, those magnificent creative gods at Facebook have come up with new ideas. Ideas no one asked for, but, by golly, great ideas nonetheless. Save me from great ideas. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve had a long-time feature running on my Facebook pages ever since the start of my Facebook “career”. This all began… Read more »

Time traveling with Facebook

An embarrassment of riches in both content and comment. And sometimes, just plain embarrassment. Not because of what is said, but because of the way it is said. Before I… Read more »

New year, new look?

Nah, despite what the picture shows, I don’t think that hairstyle is going to have the ladies flocking. If, for no other reason, I just don’t have that much hair. But I was thinking my first blog post in January should represent a new year, new look. I’m pretty turtle speed when it comes to… Read more »

Under my thumb

You probably haven’t noticed recently, but I’ve been having problems with my thumbs. Thumbnails, to be exact. And only with Facebook. My traditional method for posting my blog has been to publish it to three social media platforms. To do this, I use a WordPress (the blog program) app called “Jetpack”, which has many different functions…. Read more »

I’m not oblivious

There’s a lot of stuff going on in the world. Really, when isn’t there? In the moment, it tends to feel as if there’s never been a time like this. Unless you count the time before or the time yet to come. And still, it doesn’t stop pictures of pets or food being posted on… Read more »

Stay or go

My blog posts are not very “hip”. Owing more to my writing roots than my innate laziness (which I never refuse to give its due), I don’t do a lot of “fancying” up of my posts. They generally run on type: a single image followed by a lot of words. Occasionally, as in my “Out… Read more »
