An Ordinary Saturday Morning

This morning I woke up around 4:30 AM thinking for some odd reason that it was Tuesday. I got up and went to the bathroom, then started downstairs to feed (and shut up) Yella Fella. Only then did it occur to me that perhaps it wasn’t Tuesday after all. I checked the phone and saw … Continue reading

Imagine That! -a commentary

Facebook founder and uber-rich white boy Mark Zuckerburg has fought efforts to curtail harmful posts to his social media megasite. He didn’t care when a pizza restaurant was targeted as the supposed site where Hillary Clinton ran a child sex trafficking gang. He didn’t care when Sandy Hook was labeled a hoax and grieving family … Continue reading

Breaking Up is Hard to Do

I want to end it with Facebook, but I can’t bring myself to say good-bye. I have my reasons for wanting to stay, the most obvious being my desire to stay connected to people I wouldn’t otherwise connect with. Let’s face it, things have changed. When I first met Facebook, it was a cool place … Continue reading

Three Days Later…

In addition to the endless parade of “thoughts and prayers,” here’s what some folks are saying on social media after the Parkland school shooting: “Dear God, why do you allow so much violence in schools? I’m not allowed in schools. – God”   I told a poster’s ass off for being incredibly cruel and stupid, and she responded that if I didn’t … Continue reading

No, We will NOT be Quiet! We Shall be Heard.

There is much turmoil within our country these days, and it seems lately the solution for those on top, as well as those who fear uncertainty, is to shhhhh!!!! us.  On this weekend where we honor the life and service of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a leader of one of the largest protest movements … Continue reading

Women Shaming Other Women? Shame on You!

This morning on Facebook a local news outlet had posted a heartwarming story of police officers giving out ice cream to community kids on a hot day. But many of the comments in the thread were about one young woman in one of the photos who wasn’t wearing a bra. “You should have bought her a bra.” “No … Continue reading

I have 5000 Online Friends. How Can I Buy More?

This morning I checked Twitter and saw I had a new follower. Curious as to who this new follower was, I checked his profile. “Buy 500 new followers for $29.” A friend I follow on Instagram was begging for help in getting her to 1000 followers. These days, it’s all about the numbers. Even at … Continue reading

Red Cup Controversy: Newsworthy, or a Media-Driven Story?

So Starbucks is celebrating the holidays by changing their cups to red because they hate Jesus. Oh, how these non-news news stories make me tired. Why do media outlets keep reporting this nonsense as news? There is so much more going on the world. Like in Missouri, where the University of Missouri president and chancellor resigned … Continue reading

Adventures in Dog Exploitation- First World Edition

Thanks to social media, we now can watch lots of videos of cute dogs and cats doing incredibly funny things. But some of those videos make me cringe. Let’s review the latest craze- the videos of a dog in a spider costume scaring people. I am hoping those are staged, because I keep thinking it will only … Continue reading

Blessing in Disguise????

Rumpy has a Facebook page. And until yesterday, he also had a profile. But not anymore.   Seems Facebook looks unfavorably on those who would pretend to be a dog or cat. Friends of Rumpy’s were deleted and watched like a hawk to ensure they do not return. It’s pathetic to what lengths they’ll go to … Continue reading
