I've Mentioned This Previously Many Times

Over the last several posts I've noticed people have been skipping over my previous ones. As a result I'm going to put a hold on new ones till I see increased counts on nine of my most recent till people catch up.

Should I move this blog over to another platform like Facebook or some other social media site?

Check back often. Better yet subscribe. You never know what you'll find next on this blog. Entertainment, science, technology, humor, everything in between and more.

Before you leave check out my other posts.

All too many times people arrive here seeking out a single post from whatever link led them here never taking the time to look at my other stuff. Some of these other posts might interest you as well.

Stating this simply as I can:
I never considered growth in Lehigh Valley a positive thing. For just about every reason people moved here is now gone because they did.

Word Of Caution Hand Gardening

The wife was out doing flower gardening which she spends many hours doing. This is the first time she cut her bare hand on a three inch broken glass hidden in the soil. Luckily for her it was only minor but could have been so much worse had she severed a muscle or tendon requiring surgery.

I'd highly recommend people use small garden tools like scoops and rakes for these small projects instead of one's bare hands.

From now on this will most certainly be the case for her.

Open Meetings Violation Cost Town Everything

Sometimes, especially small local governments, tend to get sloppy posting public notices. This video should serve as a reminder to every local leader THEY MUST FOLLOW LAW TO THE LETTER. Seems to me the town overreached by taking this higher and higher in the court system.

"Sparks" Is Now On The Big Screen

I had the oppurtunity to see these guys preform at one of the WSAN concerts in the Roxy Theatre (Northampton) way back when. What a hoot!

Had A Earworm- Couldn't Sleep

After watching the 2019 "Toppers" concert from Amsterdam last night I couldn't sleep. This kept looping through my head. Course if you're going to have insomnia at least it was entertaining. Well it was until about the 10th time around.

One of the highlights to the 3 1/2 hour concert was this guy.

Amazing no one had a heart attack

No they never toured here. They likely never will. All are seperate stars in their own right and only come together once a year in Amsterdam for 6 shows.

We've got about 9 more hours of these concerts to watch. Already did 7 hours of them. Sleep in the coming nights may become questionable :-)

OK, one more from 2015 we already watched.

They usually feature one segment guest hosting American performers

I've Watched Both Putin And Biden's Pressers

I watched both press conferences in there entirety. The main impression I took away was both leaders are well spoken and intelligent.

The worst part is how the American press at Biden's were confrontational looking to stir up trouble.  Putin whose presser lasted almost an hour and half addressed reporters from all over the world. Each were respectful acting professionally (even those from the United States). American reporters were anything but at Biden's. More like gossip writers who have no business calling themselves journalists. Biden would have done better if he allowed foreign press (who are respectful) to ask questions.

In my opinion if it were up to Biden and Putin alone we wouldn't have many of the problems we're experiencing. Unfortunately both are under extreme pressures at home causing most of these problems.

I also think Biden never should have worked off a list handed to him for only the U.S. reporters he called on. Handlers were doing a great disservice to Biden. It made it look too controlled unlike Putin's. Overall Biden's abbreviated presser was a great disappointment to me.

If I were to score the two Putin's presser was far more informative. Because of it's length I came away with a greater understanding where his head was at.

Whatever the outcome shall be it will depend on far more individuals then just what Putin and Biden discussed while they were alone. Each have large presences at home who seek greater frictions between our countries then the two of them might prefer.

w/ Ariana Grande & Marissa Jaret Winokur

I've always been amazed by Ariana Grande's talent. Although I've never enjoyed the singles her corperate overlords wanted her to record. She has so much more talent then that.

Mom Used To Say "We Stink"

Perhaps as she grew older she acquired more knowledge then I appreciated at the time. Now, being as old as I've become, I find myself more and more in agreement with her. Especially given the stuff we're learning about our country's past history. Just look at a few of today's headlines. Krasner finds ‘horrendous abuses of power’ among cops, prosecutors in special report (Phila.)

Those are only some of today's. Seems rather fruitless for me to comment on them for there will dozens more like them tomorrow. Fortunately the wife and I spend most of our time on family and watching positive entertainment on TV when I'm not going through these for this blog.

Should this blog greater reflect my other interests instead?
Maybe just headlines I come across?
It's an issue I've always grappled with.

Fake Tickets To Trump’s ‘2nd Inauguration
Fake Tickets to Trump’s ‘2nd Inauguration’ Circulate on Social Media
"This is not a genuine photograph of tickets to Trump’s inauguration. This is a doctored image that was created with a blank ticket template.... This picture appears to have been first posted to the internet message board 4chan on June 13. That posting appears to have been made as a joke to mock the idea that Trump would soon be reinstated to the presidency."

They've been turning up on Faecbook and elsewhere. I kinda figure anyone reposting them on their account will wind up in "Facebook Jail". But hey who knows, maybe a few will show up in front of the capitol steps that day anyway :-)
