Ramblings of a digital writer: Do you believe in... →
I almost agree with all of this. I believe yes — there are secrets being made. Yes — there are freedoms being taken away. And Yes — they are using fear to do it. The only thing I part with is that these different instances in Benghazi, Newton, Boston, etc. aren’t set up by the government for political agendas, but rather are being used to get political agendas across — which is what upsets and...
Thought Of The Day: If you post so much that your...
This is tough, because I definitely like it when people I follow post a lot — but that’s just the thing. Usually the people I’m really interested in following do post, but they get drowned out by 50 posts a day from all of these other blogs. So, I’ve made the choice to just start unfollowing more organizations and honing my feed down to more people.
[Tutorial] How to deal with tumblr's 'Error...
I just recently ran into this issue recently. Not sure why Tumblr doesn’t do something about this. So I used the Text editor to post the photo instead and it worked. This method seems to rely on you having an advanced photo editor like Photoshop. unfbigbang: Many of us have encountered this message at one point or another: Most likely the gif you’re trying to upload is under the size...

Top brass crush career of Army officer who warned... →
The Pentagon’s top brass has dealt another blow to a decorated Army officer who was fired last year as a war college instructor because of his teachings about radical Islam, his attorney told The Washington Times. These are not isolated incidences. This all has to deal with the same thing. It’s a collective movement against American rights. Here’s an article from the Army Times...
Ugh. After an entire day of troubleshooting &...
Contrary to what you might believe, we tech writers don’t just know everything off the top of our heads. And even if we know a subject decently well, we have to still research it to make sure we don’t convey any incorrect information… at least I do. Lots of trial and error. Lots of research. Lots of patience. And mostly… lots of staring at a computer screen for hours and...

Woman: What are you feeding?
Me: Turtle gel! It's a mix of veggies, vitamins and minerals in gel form.

Oh so THAT’S why everything has been looking funny today. *puts glasses on* I thought the world was just slowly deteriorating.
50 Incorrect Pronunciations That You Should Avoid
thepalaceofawesomestories: I cringe when I hear someone sound the “t” in often or pronounce pecan with a short “a,” but I have to acknowledge that both these pronunciations are widely accepted alternate pronunciations that can be justified by the spelling. Alternate pronunciations, however, are a different matter from out-and-out mispronunciations. The latter, no matter how common, are...
My New Lenovo Laptop Is Great... But Their...
I recently got a new laptop and it’s great! It’s a Lenovo Z400 and I love it. It has everything I wanted and need. However, not long after using it, the “screen dimmer” went completely dim and hasn’t worked since. So I contacted Lenovo once… thought I fixed it… nope. Contacted them again… thought I was receiving a box to send my computer back...
Thought Of The Day: Filing Taxes
I’m sorry, but I scoff at people who complain about filing their income tax. Go to TurboTax.com, enter your W-2 info, follow instructions. Done! Result: Tax refund. Until you file for self-employment, don’t complain. And even THAT isn’t very difficult if you keep records. Result: Paying taxes.
Thought Of The Day: Gas Prices Vs. Coffee Prices
We really need to stop complaining about gas prices (although they are quite high), when as a society we’re accustomed to paying $4.70 for a 20oz cup of coffee.
Expressing My Thoughts About Guns And Our...
Alright. So after much debate in my head, I’m going to put this out there. I apologize if it’s something you find flawed. I’m not looking to offend, but rather to instigate rational and logical thought. So, before you scream… consider what I have to say. I often wonder why Obama (but not just him) is pro partial-birth abortion, but against “assault weapons” or...

A Mom Tells News Reporters About A Teacher... →
First, click the link, watch the video, then come back and read my thoughts. Here’s what I think happened. This boy spit on other students, he confesses to that. However, was this a one-time incident? Likely not. He had probably been doing this for quite some time. So am I defending the teacher? No, I don’t necessarily agree with her methods of discipline. Should she be fired?...
Things I learned about Rhinos and Sea Lions...
Rhinos: They are constantly shaping their horns by rubbing them against hard objects. Their horns are made of the same thing our fingernails are made of — keratin. (maybe if I take keratin supplements I can grow a horn) Closest relation is the horse. They poop more than a horse… A LOT more than a horse. They like to poop in the same spot. If there’s more than one, they’ll...

They contacted me -- no joke!
Last summer they actually sent me an email because someone on their team told the Managing Director at MUO that I had excellent comments on MUO Answers. Well, I was excited, but I let the opportunity slip by and never followed through — stupid move. Then this summer I built up the courage to email them again, apologize for not jumping on the opportunity and ask if there were any openings....
