I'm Really Sorry I Took The Time Out For Myself

I'm really sorry I took this time out for myself..said no one. Ever.

I go to my garden several times a day. Usually during 10 minute breaks. That gives me time to water parts of it. It usually takes two breaks to get all of it done. Sometimes three if I water the flowers too. I take pictures of the vegetables and post them. I like it. It makes me feel good about things I do other than work. Its time that I take out for myself.

B12, Obamacare, Judge Dread and the Medicare Scare

Sometimes you read things on someone's feed that just makes you cringe. After all, you've been on road trips with them. You've fallen asleep in the passenger seat while they were driving. You even trusted the short cut they knew about that wasn't on Google Maps.  And yet here they are reposting a story they read on WingnutPotstirrers.com as if they had expereinced it themselves. It's as if their ability to reason went out the window once they found out {insert current unpopular public figure here} was involved.

Facebook's New Timeline Search Setting

Yeah! I know. Just when you thought it was safe to go in the water. Only now, it's even tougher. It's not just about watching out for Sharks. You have to worry about how far from shore you are and how deep the water you are. By that I mean, friends of friends friends who are friends with a page with a group... or some such nonsense.  It's not like anybody really knows what all that stuff means anyway. It's too much for us mortals. That's why Einstein waited for Al Gore to create the Internet. He knew he wouldn't be able to explain it to us blunt skull members of the Earth is Flat Society. We just figured out what the Timeline is, and now Facebook has changed something again. So the question is...What are you going to do about the Snarks with the long tail now?

How To Turn Off Facebook Group Notifications

So you got an invitation to join a group on Facebook. All your friends are there. You'll have a chance to catch up on everybody, everywhere, and on everything they do. This sounds wonderful! But pretty soon you have so many pictures of grand kids, sunsets, food, quotes and pets that you can't keep up. The bing ding dang dong notifications start to mount up. It's a 24 hour unrelenting stream of really interesting stuff. It really is. But there's simply too much of it. Fortunately, you can control it. The 10 second video at the bottom of this post will show you how to start liking cats all over again.
