A Bit About Me...and maybe You, too.

Living with Social Networking

Has Technology taken over our Lives Completely?  All it takes is a quick trip to your local iHop or any other place where folks congregate and that question will be answered. Look around the room. If there are Four people at a Table, there are Four PHONES at that table....and they're IN USE. Watch the person YOU are conversing their eyes flash back and forth between their plate and their phone.  #sad    

Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, has declared our "phone dependency / illness" an Epidemic and vowed to do something about it...taking it to Congress if necessary.  I suspect that there will soon be a "National Phone Association" modeled after the NRA...boldly  declaring: "If you want our phones you'll have to pry them from our Cold, Dead Hands!!"

Personally, I leave my phone at home as often as I take it with me. Why? Cuz I saw myself becoming an addict. I don't have a Facebook account. I don't have a Twitter account. I DO still have a small Instagram account that I enjoy except for the fact that I see people who should know better actually BUYING Friends and Followers. Buying "friends" should, IMHO, be outlawed as should the ability to post ANYTHING under a phony or fake name. Those caught with phoney names or multiple weird profiles should be Burned at the Stake.  

As Music and Photography are my Primary Joys in Life, I enjoy YouTube and I found that the Now-Deceased Google + allowed me to communicate with a growing number of Friends currently living in or moving to Europe....a result of the United States electing the "Tangerine Gibbon", a Maniacal and Narcissistic former TV Game Show Host and Low Life Carnival Barker as our POTUS and now driving sane folks absolutley batshit crazy with his endless Tweets and Massive Ego. What a friggin' Goober! What on Earth were we thinking? Obviously...we weren't....and just for the record, I'm not a Hillary Fan either.     🎩  🍎

Who I Am

It was May the 14th, 2018 when I gave Mark Zuckerberg back his "Ring of Promise". I'd left Facebook months ago because I was receiving absolutely NO Joy from it and decided to give Instagram a shot. That didn't go well either. As a matter of fact, it was downright humiliating. I'd spend an hour working on putting up what I thought was a quality post and three people would "like" it.... while at the same time some Schmuck who had "PURCHASED" Followers and Likes would have 274,936 responses to a picture of his Dogs Ass. 💩 Nope. Ain't doin' it anymore. For me, "Social Networking" is well on its way to being a complete and total Waste of Time....and Time is, quite certainly, our most limited and valuable resource. 

PS:  The pic you see here is Correct. I'm absolutely Devoted to Apple....and to Oregon Chai. 🍎
