A journal is a constant reminder of how fast the days are going and that I need to make some progress towards my goals every day because the days are numbered and we don’t know how many we have left. The biggest goal of the blog is to stay connected to my network and provide a way to connect other than Social Media.
Seventeen Years! Yes, this November the blog will be Seventeen years old but since so few have been following along for that long I have decided to do a traditional “Hello World” posting. So here is my latest Hello World Posting…
This is my Blog. Welcome!
At its core, twitter is a text messaging service all phones have access to. If they ever went back to that they would kill Facebook because Facebook is web-based. Everyone has text messaging, even boomers with their older flip phones. But twitter will never listen to me. Anyway... Here is how to setup your twitter account to receive tweets from any account via SMS.
Social Media platforms are fueling Mental Illness, Terrorism, Cyber Attacks, Family Breakdowns, Suicides, Overdose Deaths, Deaths

Wishing everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year. May 2017 be a prosperous one for all my readers. Over the weekend there was plenty of talk about resolutions, where do you see yourself in 5/10/15 years, goals ... all the traditional talk we do at the start of a new year. My New Years Resolution this year? Get to know everyone around me a little better. I may have to commit these 36 questions to memory...
Through no fault of their own, Millenials have suffered from bad parenting skills. Growing up with instant gratification, being told they are special and that they had to follow their passion, make an impact or have a purpose in life, Millenials arenot finding instant life or job satisfaction. These concepts were taught throughout a Millenials childhood by both parents and society and has made Millenials ill prepared for the corporate world. It will take strong leaders to address this problem but only if they can identify it. It is something I am constantly aware of with Mellinials, especially after beating my on Social Media addiction.
Here is a sunset from the South Shore of Long Island. As I watch a sunset I am always in awe that this is just an average star in our galaxy, one of about a billion, and 1,300,000 times the size of our little planet.
I added an original Mac Mini 1,1 to my little collection of Macs. This particular model is 10 years old. I acquired it a few weeks back and decided to see if I could go breathe some life into an old Mac as a backup to my other macs. You can easily find Mac Mini's on eBay for less than $100. Here are a few of the things you can and cannot do on Mac's today as opposed to 10 years ago...
Millennials are the worst. I should know — I am one. At 26, I’m stuck in the middle of the world’s most maligned, mocked and discussed age group. And I hate it. Imagine being forever lumped into a smug pack of narcissists who don’t just ignore the past, but openly abhor anyone and everything that came before them.
Long Island native, Kevin James, is returning home in this CBS Television Studios and Sony Television sitcom, “Kevin Can Wait.” The show is set to be filmed at Gold Coast Studios in Bethpage. The comedy will be Long Island’s first live studio audience sitcom.

In a few days the Sun will start rising just a bit earlier but hardly noticeable at first. Right now, here on the South Shore of Long Island, the Sun is rising at 7:13am. Starting on Thursday, 1/7 the Sun will rise at 7:12am, the following Tuesday the Sun will rise at 7:11am, Friday 1/15 at 7:10am, Sunday 1/17 at 7:09am and so on. In a nutshell the days will start to get a little longer.
Long Islanders all went nuts over the Roosevelt Field Mall "Holiday Display" for not having a Christmas Tree. Well... The trees are back and there are a LOT of them!
Two things really struck a cord with me this week. 1) Long Islanders just don't vote. 2) Take away our Mall Christmas Tree and we go nuts! Here are two stories I pulled out of the local news this week:
Some pics from my visit to "The Kennedy Space Center" which is built more like a theme park for the future Space Tourism industry. Most of the park is dedicated to the work that was done by the Space Shuttle program. One of my favorite quotes that I found at the park: For the eyes of the world now look into space, to the moon and to the planets beyond, and we have vowed that we shall not see it governed by a hostile flag of conquest, but by a banner of freedom and peace. We have vowed that we shall not see space filled with weapons of mass destruction, but with instruments of knowledge and understanding.
I had never been to this part of Florida before... I had extensively explored Orlando, Miami, Tampa and the Panhandle (Panama City), but after that Florida never did interest me in exploring further. That is until I saw my first Sunrise over Cocoa Beach...
I used to post every Sunday morning but lately I just seem to get up and go to wherever my calendar tells me to go. Have not posted much at all lately. This morning I'm free! And realized I had recently found time to post 2 new video's to YouTube,
This past weekend was about the 6th straight weekend I have practically disappeared from "The Net" despite having the latest and greatest gadget in my back pocket. Disconnecting... something I have struggled within in the distant past but have learned how to master
It’s a rare Weekend posting in my little “Long Island” category of the blog. Just a little something I snapped from the phone that I wanted to share… […]
