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 are able to 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. Been behind a Phone Hog at a Stop Light lately?  #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 more of an addict than I wanted to be. I don't have a Facebook account. I don't have a Twitter account.

I just deleted my Instagram account after spending 2 out of four weeks in September of 2020 being tossed in IG Jail myself, accused without an ounce of proof that I was "BUYING Likes and Followers".

Buying "friends" should, IMHO, be outlawed as should the ability to post ANYTHING under a phony or fake name. Those caught with phony names or multiple weird profiles on ANY Social Networking site should, IMHO, be Burned at the Stake....or Deep Fried.  Whichever is more painful. :)  

As Music and Photography are my Primary Joys in Life, I enjoy YouTube and years ago 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, Carnival Barker and Low-Life Conman as our POTUS...a Clown who's long been driving sane folks absolutely 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. I simply know a Total Turd when I Smell one.     🎩  🍎

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. 🍎
