Tuck Me In

Today the truck got packed up, the keys turned in, and the road trip started. We made is as far as Tucson. I wish wish I was staying here, but they probably don't accept pets. +La Quinta Inns & Suites​ does though, and my pets couldn't be happier.

Guess I'll have to come back.

+Annette Holland :)  All white background is key.  Think of the old hollywood pics used to high models imperfections by blowing out the lighting on the background and on their faces to make them look smooth.

Just because you can beat your friends and family with these words, doesn't mean you should use them in the office.

"It is the innocence which constitutes the crime:" thus ends James Baldwin's powerful indictment of the American public. The charge he lays at our feet is of a collective refusal to be aware of what we are doing, and what we have done. And can we disagree with this? I've heard excuses before of "we didn't know what was happening," "it's just what had always been done," "we were only doing our duty;" I'm sure you have, too. Have you ever, once, known them to be true? 

In 1962, a Gallup poll showed that 85% of whites said that "black children had just as good a chance as white children to get a good education in their communities." In 1969, another Gallup poll showed 44% of whites saying that "blacks had a better chance than they did to get a good paying job." Look at those dates for a moment, and think about the world then. In retrospect, those statements look like complete madness. Were they any less nonsensical at the time? No: they were completely obvious back then, too. But there was a strong urge not to look.

This article is an excellent, and serious, discussion of the things we have been unwilling to look at.

Coming on the heels of Memorial Day, I find this particularly important. America has achieved many great things, but it has a deeply ingrained habit of ignoring the many terrible things it has also achieved. The country (like all countries) is very good at establishing an "official narrative" of what happened and why, a narrative we all learned in school, one which suggests that mistakes were made but everything is fine now.

The reason we can't ever let ourselves accept this is that when we ignore past actions, we blame the wrong people. When we ignore present actions, we cannot fix them.

Many people like to wave around the phrase "my country, right or wrong!" as a meaningless patriotic slogan. Remember the full quote: "My country, right or wrong: if right, to be kept right; if wrong, to be set right." It's not an admonishment to ignore any flaws; it's a reminder of our shared responsibility to our country, to understand what is right and wrong with it, so that we can preserve the former and repair the latter.

This article is an excellent introduction to some of the things which are and have been, undeniably, wrong. We don't need to make excuses for it; we just need to recognize it, understand it, and fix it.

Pundits and politicians are all too eager to condemn violent protest. How quickly they forget our nation's history

I'm really going to miss the Cherry cider they have on tap. #TGIF #twt

Cherry cider, sweet potato (garlic) fries, District Pub CYO burger with blue cheese and caramelized onions (protein style, on a bed of arugula). Only missing some good company.

"Genius might be described as a supreme capacity for getting its possessors into trouble of all kinds." - Samuel Butler
Introduction
All around Jill-of-all-trades, mistress of a few. I translate tech into English. Android enthusiast. Browncoat extraordinaire. You can ask me anything. 

What I'm Into
My tastes are constantly evolving. But I'm passionate about: 
  • STEM education
  • Android
  • Photography
  • Women in tech
  • Travel
  • 90s music
  • EDM
  • all things geeky - hardware, software, and entertainment.
  • Disney
I flirt, sometimes dangerously, but if you creep, you will be blocked. There, you've been warned. Proceed at your own risk.


"I think you mustn't tell your body, you mustn't tell your soul, 'I'm going to retire,'" Dee told The Associated Press in 2001. "You may be changing your life emphasis, but there's still things that you have in mind to do that now seems the right time to do. I really don't believe in retiring as long as you can breathe."
