This just in: If a gorilla becomes tired of the visitors at a zoo, he simply turns his back to them. In his mind, supposedly, if he can’t see them, they don’t exist.
I think I’m going to try this for a while.
Facebook has a feature where you can “block” someone so they don’t see your posts and you don’t see theirs. Somehow…this is different from “unfriending” someone. So, I am now going to start blocking those FB people that post things I find offending.
My gut tells me this is wrong. They exist and therefore, I need to confront them.
My experience tells me that if you like Trump, if you vote Republican because you “always vote Republican”, if you don’t think Congress just passed a tax bill to pay back rich donors, if you think Muslims = terrorism or if you think gun laws have no impact on gun deaths, then you are not likely to change your mind based on anything I say or do.
So, I have elected to turn my back on you. You personally. I will still follow the news. I will still look for opportunities to have my own perspective changed.
I just will no longer listen to your nonsensical, racist and uneducated blatherings.
I turn my back on you.
I got an Xbox for Christmas. I turn 60 in 3 weeks and this is my first Xbox.
I have an army game that goes like this. (Difficulty level set at amature)
Game: Charge the beach.
Me: jump out of boat and drown.
Game: Charge the beach.
Me: accidentally throw a grenade into my own boat, killing everyone.
Game: Charge the beach
Me: jump out of boat and get shot by every German on Normandy beach
This last step repeated itself about 20 times before I finally reached the beach.
I also have a car game that apparently consists of my constantly crashing on the first turn and killing myself.
And finally, there is a strategy game. So far, I have spent an hour trying to figure out how to get out of the room I started in.
I love my new Xbox.
On the Gifting page…
I got my wife the best Christmas present of all time. It’s a painting entitled Budapest Girl. My wife is from Budapest and I sent my favorite picture to the artist. Below is that photo I sent followed by the painting…
On the entertainment page…
I watched The Darkest Hour the other day. Strongly recommended.
On the New Year’s Resolution Page…
I will keep last year’s resolution: The live life expansively and try new things.
I will add: To live life beautifully…quality over quantity.
Time to save the world.
UP, up and away…
