Happiness, freedom and choices
So, I've been off Facebook since shortly after I posted 2018 and more . I originally removed my Twitter , but they delete your profile after 30 days, so I restored it. I've since tweeted a handful of times. I haven't put it back on my phone, but I'll pro...

2018 and more
I've spent most of adult life focusing much of my energy on one kind of "social media" or another online. Before it was Facebook and Twitter , it was their predecessors, such as Myspace , and before that it was message boards and Usenet , which weren't nam...

I have a weird obsession with the song "Silver Threads and Golden Needles". Not specifically because of the song. It is a song I grew up with. My mom really liked Linda Ronstadt , so it was one of the songs I heard. And of course, it has an important mes...

Disney owning the world

The 20th Century was a fluke
Greg Ferrara once pointed out that American Graffiti came out in 1974 and took place in 1962. That's a mere dozen years, but they feel like different worlds. He said it a few years back. At that time, he noted that the same period of a dozen years would b...

Football
I love football. I love the Seattle Seahawks , a team whose existence came about just in time for me to take an interest. One of the things I've been excited about moving back to the Seattle area was to be able to participate in Seahawks events and celebr...
