Aren't you just sick of both parties competing with Barnum and Bailey? The GOP has the valedictorian graduate form Clown college and the Democrats have a magic trick of making emails disappear.
 
Why Do #Democrats Struggle with Emails?
 
The #FBI announced today that no criminal charges would be brought against the Democratic National Committee following the #Wikileaks release of 20,000 emails stolen from the servers of the #DNC. Whoa, wait, stop. Wrong info. I got my newsfeeds crossed. Sorry about that. No one has come forward as the leaker (leakee? whistleblower?). Of course, it may have been the new transparency in government that the parties are touting. Some security firms are suggesting it was hackers from (pick one or more): Russia, ISIS, the #Republican Party, North Korea, or Bernie #Sanders.
Apparently, the DNC hasn’t learned anything about securing their emails after the debacle caused by Hillary #Clinton’s handling of emails while Secretary of State. To paraphrase FBI Director James #Comey, I don't think the Democrats are particularly sophisticated with respect to handling email servers. I guess the resignation of Party chair Debbie Wasserman #Schultz is a partial solution. Apparently, there is no truth to the rumors that the DNC is seeking administrative assistants that know how to use typewriters. A rumor is also going around that they would like a type of email that self-destructs after fifteen minute. (Okay, I must confess, I started that rumor.) I predict that Snapchat will be the new server for all Democratic Party correspondence.
In days of old, we used to download all critical information and take it off site to protect it. Has the DNC never heard of codes, encryptions and self-destructing programs? I found several on the internet. The email server shouldn’t keep records of messages on the server.
As they say, live and learn. This blog will self-destruct in 15 seconds.

So, how do you rediscover time, events, and still include the major influences for your memoir? Are you wondering how you put your memoir into perspective so that it’s a birds-eye view of your life experiences, told within the context of the larger world events during your time-frame?
___
It’s as simple as starting with a timeline.
It’s an interesting exercise to look up what was happening here in the States and around the world when you select your time frame and reflect on influences. And who knows, you may be able to elab…

We all can adopt a little bit more kindness.
Marilyn Davis originally shared:
 
Dr. Christopher Fox provides five concise ways in which you can become not just a better writer, but a kinder writer as well.  Tips for narrowing the focus,  finding your answers for the "Big Why" we write, and why a reader comes away from the experience transformed.
 
And isn't that our intended outcome when we write?
Becoming a kind writer can have an enormous impact on what we write and on whether it matters. Kindness puts how we engage with our readers at the center of our concern, whether we choose to inspir…

I'm in the middle of crocheting an afghan, and I'm using yarn that is very similar to this. Just thought I'd mention it. ;-}

I taught myself how to knit and crochet. I got beginner's books and just followed the instructions. My mother did neither. I had to laugh. My mother would always say she didn't do either because her mother never taught her. I would just look at her, because she certainly didn't teach me, and yet I learned.

Earth Will Gain One Extra Second in 2016
Due to Earth's rotation, 2016 will gain one extra second. Use it wisely. Here are some suggestions on what you can do with one second:
·         Exhale – You might be able to do this and inhale within one second but don’t continue or you may hyperventilate.
·         Inhale – See above comments.
·         Hold your breath – Don’t forget to start breathing again after one second.
·         Count to one
·         Mediate – Opps, sorry. I just tried this and fell asleep. Where was I? Oh yeah, what to do with one second.
·         Kiss your significant other.
·         Hug a child.
·         Tell your employer your pay must increase. For example, if you earn $15 per hour, you should get a pay increase of  $0.0042. Hey, every little bit helps.
·         Relax – we all could use extra time to relax.
It might be better to add that second onto time used for something:
·         Add one second to microwave food.
·         When someone says, “Give me a second,” you could give them a this second. Of course, they would now then have two seconds. What a great gift.
·         When you say, “Just a second,” or “Hold on a second,” you could use this second. It’s like free time.
·         Add one second to your love making, if you can.
Perhaps you have some ideas? Let hear them.

Sounds like a good idea. I wish I had the time to submit something.
A couple of days ago, Marilyn, our wonderful assistant editor, put forth a challenge to all the writers in our audience. She asked writers, who wish to participate, to use the old chimney in the ab…

As human beings we now have the ability to engineer ourselves. So in science fiction we can ask, what will it mean to be human in the future?http://wp.me/p3ycbY-1nD

The Ten Not So Subtle Signs You Purchased a Bad House
Okay, you bought a new house on good faith. How can you tell if you purchased a nice home or one that is toxic? Here are the ten subtle signs that your new home might not be a good bargain.
1.      You dog keeps finding bones in your back yard.
2.      The mailperson wears a HAZMAT suit to deliver the mail.
3.      The UPS delivery person sweeps your sidewalk with a mine detector whenever he makes a delivery.
4.      There’s crime scene tape across your front door.
5.      There’s an outline of a body on your living room floor.
6.      The local motorcycle gang keeps throwing beer cans on your front lawn.
7.      Your GPS can’t find your house.
8.      When you tell people your address they roll their eyes.
9.      Your house is a stop on the haunted house tour.
10.  Your backyard keeps getting smaller as pieces keep falling off into the ocean.
I’m sure there are other signs. I hope this helps you make a wise decision when you purchase a house.
