Dreamer’s World June 21, 2018 – Digging A Hole

Dreamer’s World June 21, 2018 – Digging A Hole

    After I finished my first blog post today, I started wondering about how the awful effects of having a Nazi in the White House might affect us. One thing really startled me.
    RWNJ lunatics like to point out that people who come to this country should be restricted because they could be enemies or terrorists. This is a valid point, and should not be underestimated. However, putting children in concentration camps might be the worst thing that we could do. These people coming here are in search of a better life for themselves and their children. Treating them like subhumans, and treating their children like criminals might have the effect of creating more enemies and terrorists than we already face.
    We don’t need more enemies unless you subscribe to the RWNJ Nazi view of the world that anyone who disagrees with you, or looks different than you, or comes from another country or ethnic background is already a threat. I refute that point of view, we need more love in this world and not more hatred. Sadly, the Nazi in the White House seems hellbent on making new enemies whenever and wherever he can.
    RWNJ and the Nazi in the White House are our biggest threats to our security.

Dreamer’s World June 21, 2018 – What Have We Become?

Dreamer’s World June 21, 2018 – What Have We Become?

        Since today is the longest day of the year, it only seems right to direct the maximum light onto this country and ask “What In The FUCK Is Wrong With Us?”
    The news is filled with stories of people hating each other publicly. We have opened a Pandora’s Box of dangerous emotion and hatred ever since the RWNJ fringe came to power in this country. The Nazi in the White House has been leading the charge of these hate-filled fanatics and shows no sign of slowing down. I find it hard to believe that there are so many hate-filled people in this country. They are the first to claim how much they love this nation, but they are also the first to show how little they understand it.
The US was founded by immigrants, but today the followers of the Nazi in the White House would gladly promote genocide if their idiot leader told them that is what he wanted. Their hatred doesn’t stop there, of course.
Any minority is the subject of their wrath
because they sadly believe that only people as stupid and truly disgusting as they are should live here. Every day, we find another example of some racist RWNJ caught on video showing their hatred for other people. Racial hate crimes are increasing, but since the Nazi in the White House thinks Nazis are “very fine people,” they proceed without fear of condemnation or punishment.
The fact that RWNJ oppose most hate-crime legislation shows their true colors to the rest of us. I have to believe that there are more of us who love each other than there are of those who just hate everyone. My faith in this is tested each and every day.
A musician and a college football coach post racist things online, and it hardly raises an eyebrow anymore. This is the same pathetic response we have to mass killings. These things happen so frequently that we just accept them as normal and move on with our lives. They are NOT NORMAL, and we SHOULD RESIST with all of our strength.
The LGBTQ community feels the hatred from the RWNJ on a daily basis. The progress towards equality is being rolled back on the tidal wave of hatred.
Children are put into concentration camps because of the background of their parents, and there is outrage, but nothing will result from that outrage. The RWNJ know that this will become the new normal very soon. It is part of their plan to turn this nation into the 4th Reich, led by the Naxi in the White House.

Dreamer’s World June 16, 2018 – A New Addition To The Neighborhood

Dreamer’s World June 16, 2018 – A New Addition To The Neighborhood

I decided to try out Frito Chicken in Centreville for lunch while Hal was at work today. I was alerted to this place via Yelp, so I made up my mind to check it out.

The place wasn’t busy when I stopped in, in fact, I was the only customer, but that gives me the chance to soak up the atmosphere of the place. It is spotless, and that is a huge plus in my book.

The prices are very reasonable. The main thing that sets this place apart is that they prepare the chicken after you place your order. This means a short wait, but you’re getting fresh food.

Some people might not think that waiting for chicken at a fast-food joint is worth the effort, but I can tell you that the food was delicious and well worth the wait.

I stopped in again with Hal the way home from picking him up and he loves the place as well. We will be going back.

Dreamer’s World June 15, 2018 – Memories Of School Days

Dreamer’s World June 15, 2018 – Memories Of School Days

    Sometimes I look around me and see things that make me think back to my childhood. One of those is the kids going to school every day around here. The thing about that is that where I grew up, we were always out of school by the middle of May. It seems weird to see kids still in school in the middle of June. I know that we always started school in August.
    Those days are long gone. Life has moved on when viewed in hindsight. I remember days spent in elementary school. The first building I attended school in was ancient at the time, it still had the antique desks that were bolted to the floor. The seat formed the front of the desk behind you. It was really weird having these seats in the 1970s.
Eventually, the old building was torn down, and a new, modern school was built. This one was the “open school” concept plan that was popular in the 1970s.
    By the time I got to Middle School, things had returned to the more traditional modern concept, and that was the case throughout high school. I remember each concept having its ups and downs, and I wonder what environments they use today. Since I don’t have any kids, I really have no idea, but as long as the magic of learning continues, things will be fine.
    That was my trip down Memory Lane for today. If another topic comes up, I will write about it.

Dreamer’s World March 31, 2018

  This week has been a very busy one for me. Work was more hectic than usual, there was the self-assessment that had to be done in the close of the current reporting period, which is always fun. I also had to start thinking of new objectives for the next reporting period that starts soon. This was on top of the normal routine work and the crisis phone calls for help from people. To add to all of this, I suffered a major bout of insomnia on Tuesday night and called in sick on Wednesday as a result. I was extremely happy to be finished yesterday.
    The upcoming move to the new apartment continues to hurtle towards us. It will soon be just 2 weeks before the move, this marks the point at which I begin to pack items away and prepare for the move. Hal has already been at it for 2 weeks. I need to conserve my energy for now.
    Hal did get a new cell phone this week, a Samsung Galaxy S9+. While it is a great device, I just have never been a fan of Samsung products. They always make things too complicated for my taste. I prefer my Google Project Fi phone to anything else available right now. Hal is very pleased with his new phone, and I decided that I would upgrade something of my own.
       I have an ancient Sony digital camera. It is at least 10 years old, and I no longer have the cable that connects it to a computer for downloading or to charge the internal battery. After some internet research proved that a replacement cable would be too expensive, I decided to get a new digital camera. I looked at Best Buy and saw a Nikon that I really liked. It does the 4K video in 1080p, and I thought that the price wasn’t too terrible. I didn’t buy the camera at the store. Instead, I came home and looked it up online to see the reviews. The reviews all stated that it was an excellent camera for the price. I then noticed that it was available via Amazon, and for $50 more I could also get a case, SD card, rechargeable batteries and other things that I would have had to purchase separately if I bought the camera through Best Buy. I placed the order thru Amazon and I am hoping that the package will arrive by Tuesday, which is the projected date.
       I might use the new camera to start developing a vlog for myself. This is something I have thought about in the past, but I lacked the proper equipment for it. I am not making any guarantees, but it is a subject for me to ponder over in the coming weeks.

Dreamer’s World February 02, 2018 – Why Can’t Evernote And Grammarly Play Nice?

    I wish that Evernote and Grammarly would play nice with each other. I would love to see an Evernote extension for Grammarly so that I could write a post in Evernote and have Grammarly check it as I type. Grammarly offers this for MS Word and it is awesome. I am trying to find the writing solution that eliminates cut-and-paste but allows for great spelling and grammar checking. Grammarly wins the spelling and grammar check without any real challengers. Evernote offers me the ability to format things just the way I want them in every other way and then using IFTTT to publish the blog posts to my blog sites without any worry. Sadly, there doesn’t seem to be a way to use IFTTT with MS Word at all, and that is a shame. The drawback is that MS Word will publish directly to WordPress, but not to Blogger, where I also maintain a blog. If there are any developers out there who can figure out a way to integrate Evernote and Grammarly without having to switch windows and then cutting and pasting, I think that you could make a fortune.
