    Another thing I can't stand is Facebook. I see no practical need for it. Other than seeing grandkids photos... It's just silly..I use to say FB is for girls. Well I stopped saying that because I know so many guys are FB fanatics! AAAGGGHHH!

    I found a long-lost friend by Facebook, that's how Facebook is useful to me.

    I don't do any sort of texting. Don't wanna....no way. I got a text from my son-in-law this morning my lovely wife returned the message for me. I say..just call me. I'm more than cordial to speak with anyone. :D

    ...And another thing. I'm a member at skyscrapercity.com. which is probably the biggest forum on the internet. They cover a whole gambit various subjects in many different languages. More than once over there I've had many post deleted for no apparent reason and once an entire thread deleted without any explanation. I don't get it.:confused:

    The frequency of Tv commercials in moden Tv....Old 1/2 tv shows 50+ years ago had six minutes of commercial & network breaks. Nowadays its eight minutes..unless you stream "free shows".

    we watch almost nothing on broadcast TV except sports and news. The other day I downloaded NBC tv on my roku so I could watch the original Battlestar Galactica from 1978. So yesterday I'm all set to watch the show. I start the first episode and after about 5-6 minutes it is interrupted by commercials. ..Ok so I watch a little more..then more commercials. So I decide to time how much of the show I get to watch before I have to see a commercial. Well every seven minutes there a commercial break. I deleted the channel off my roku line up. Oh well ..such is life in the 21st century.

    We do have Hulu,Netflix and we are sharing Amazon prime with my son.;)

    I post most of my photos on imgur an excellent photo hosting site. A few days ago I decided to make some of my photos 'public' so other imgur members could make comments. I've discovered that most person making comments want to make jokes or poke fun at the photos..which is encouraged by imgur. Or have some sort of rude comment about the photos. I have to wonder what is the average age of the persons making these comments on imgur? I'm guessing under 25 years old.

    Christians in the Middle East continue to suffer, and I have a very warm spot in my heart for the Kurd's, they've taken a lot of casualties helping us execute our Middle East plan!

    We effectively just f*cked every single one of our allies that helped us out in that region AND gave Putin and MidEast despots a win. We'll see if anyone ever trusts the US again.
