Social Media Discouragement

I’ve noted recently that a couple specific television commercials are blatantly anti-family and pro-addictive. Addictive in that a man walking his dog does not in any way apparent to interact with his pet during the walk. Also, a man and his family have zero apparent family interaction as everyone has their eyes locked down on their device screen while he is driving.

Not to sound negative as their is just too much of that crap in our world today, but this just isn’t a good thing. The parent(s) need to make the positive decision to have each passenger in a car to let those devices be put down. The man walking his pet loses out due to his apparent lack of interaction with his pet, and the things he might see along the way.

Our modern technology is a beautiful thing really, isn’t it? It’s used for so many great things and too many dark things due to those evil individuals who choose to be useless, devious individuals. For what this might be worth, please consider these thoughts the next time your family or you and your pet might find time for some family time.

Can’t Find That One Theme!

There are thousands of themes available on and I’ve been sifting through them since my upgrade to WordPress Business. I’m adjusting to the changes and  can’t say now that it sucks but what annoys me is that regardless of so many free themes, I can’t find one that meets my criteria for both function and form.

Add to that that I’m an el’ cheapo that won’t spend the thirty or more dollars to purchase a theme specifically designed to work with the WordPress platform. Not just yet anyway, perhaps next month? The current theme I’m using is called Gather and was purchased sometime during 2016 and also the theme I keep returning to as it just works on all levels.

Turning Up The Heat!!

The next seven days will see Las Vegas Valley deep within an Excessive Heat Warning. After four years living in Las Vegas Valley, I don’t see this as anything unusual but it’s nothing to be toyed with either. I saw one hundred eight degrees today, the forecast for the next week predicts high temperatures around one hundred fifteen degrees. Stay hydrated and indoors when possible!

So then, would you want to live here? Could you take the Las Vegas heat?
