I blame Facebook for my obsession with the number 70

I’ve been known to obsess over many things. Health. Sports. Music. Writing. Reruns of The Office. Donald Trump. And those are just a few of my obsessions. But lately, I’ve been obsessing over a particular number. Actually, it’s been more than lately. This obsession began on June 12, 2021. That was the day after my... Read more »

How did we get by without six hours of Facebook and Instagram?

Yesterday, I took a few hours off from social media to run some errands. It was tough, but I made it through. When I returned, I found a text informing me that Facebook was down. Phew! I didn’t miss a thing! Apparently the Zuckerberg empire was out for about six hours yesterday. How did we... Read more »

Hey Facebook, gimme my money!

Hey Facebook, gimme my money!
I’ve been on Facebook since 2008. Eleven Years! The reason was the same as a lot of people in my age range….to stalk check on my children. Facebook was invented so college age kids could interact with each other. Pretty cool idea. Someone at Harvard, on the east coast, could virtually hang out with someone... Read more »

What did you do with your life when Facebook went down?

What did you do with your life when Facebook went down?
It was Monday. Noon. Two days ago but it seems much longer. I had just finished a new blog post. It was time to share it on my social media sites…and as long as I was there, I might as well hang out on the sites. Time to see what was going on in the... Read more »

The week in review: Tronc, Trumps and Tunes

The week started with the New York Daily News laying off half of their journalists. Just more cuts by TRONC, which bought the paper a year ago. Do you think the $15 million they paid to Michael Ferro in "consulting fees" would have saved these jobs? Disgusting!
It’s been awhile since there’s been a Week in Review, but the last few days have been special. Journalists are under attack, Trumps are acting up, and a few good music stories. Let’s take a look.   Related Post: Foo Fighters SNL medley is the greatest rock Christmas song of all-time Type your email address... Read more »

What do you call someone who leaves nasty comments on your blog?

What do you call someone who leaves nasty comments on your blog?
Did you know that I’m a Communist? I didn’t either….until one of the people who reads my blog let me know. You can’t have thin skin if you’re a writer. Not everyone is going to like everything you write. Not everyone is going to agree with your opinions. You have to be able to handle... Read more »

Is it okay to stalk your doctor on Facebook

Is it okay to stalk your doctor on Facebook
Google! Facebook! Instagram! Snapchat! Twitter! Pinterest! Etc!!!! There are so many places that you can find out information about someone. If you’ve never done it, Google yourself and see what’s there. I’m at the bottom of Page 1. I’d be higher except there’s a basketball coach with the same name…damn him. Sometimes this snooping comes... Read more »

My 100 Year Old Aunt Is on Facebook

We are overwhelmed by social media. How often are we bombarded by nonsensical Tweets? How many times do you see someone check-in on Facebook? Do you really care that I’m at a ballgame, concert or restaurant? I barely care that I’m there and yet I continue to do it and so do many others. And... Read more »

    Every five years or so I decide to update this section. I can't believe I've been doing this for close to ten years. The last time I did this I was close to sixty years old. Now I'm just a few months away from the big 7-ZERO. Scary AF!!! I'm pretty sure I won't be doing an update when I hit 80, but you never know. But until then, lets just be grateful.
