Last Mother’s Day

Last year there wasn’t a Mother’s Day Post. But there was one in 2015:

And who can forget the 2014 Mother’s Day Post:

Oh how I miss those early days.

This is our last Mother’s Day together on the blog, so this will be the third and last Mother’s Day post.

First though I need to mention a couple of holidays that just passed.

May 4th, Star Wars Day and…

May 5th, Cinco De Mayo.

I hope every one enjoyed both.

I spent that week visiting family. Saw cousins I haven’t seen in years, ate dinner with my favorite Uncle, and had a margarita with my mom, which brings us to the subject at hand.


I have said it before, I was blessed with one of the best moms out there. I’m lucky. I have been surrounded by great moms all my life. My mom, my grandmother, my wife. All great moms. My wife also has an amazing mother and grandmother. I have seen the best mom’s in action and have benefited from it immensely. Mother’s who sacrifice everything for their children. With unconditional love and forgiveness. If, like me, you had one of those mother’s, you are blessed. If you are one of those mothers, you are doubly blessed.

So, one last time… to all the mom’s out there…

Happy Mother’s Day!

And Here We Go Again…

fb remove page

It’s not that Facebook is responding to complaints about the ZW FB page, it’s just the ones it responds to that crack me up:

fb removed comment zero

Yes, today I opened up my Facebook page and this is what was waiting for me. Once again… seriously Facebook?!?

LMFAO… I bet Dorothy and whoever is still in that nut gallery listening to her poo-poo (yes poo-poo, I could have said crap, or bullshit or just plain shit, but I’m trying to clean it up in here, I’ve been told the language get’s out of hand) must be posting complaints about everything I say on Facebook… and this is what they remove…

Damn, that’s good.

Still… this could mean more comments removed in the future… which will mean they just pop up here, even the unimportant ones like the one they just pulled because they don’t “follow the Facebook community standards”… LOL! Facebook can remove them… and I will blog about it here… so keep reporting me to the FB police… it keeps ya nuts busy, no?

Of course Kate’s Facebook dismissal should be right around the corner… so I have been putting it to some other quick uses before she’s gone.

I know, I was supposed to take a Dorothy break and write about some other stuff… and while I did take a break, I didn’t write about too much else… didn’t even finish my thoughts on Shadow People, though I assure you I will.

I was taking advantage of the quiet though, playing Star Wars Galatic Defense on my tablet. I’m obsessed with that game! I love tower defense games and I love Star Wars… so I knew it would be good!

Plus I knew the quiet wouldn’t last… it never does.

Thanksgiving and Black Friday Posts (Revenge Of The Turkey Sandwich)

I had planned on writing a post for Thanksgiving, I was gonna call it “Gobble, Gobble”. It would have been short and sweet and mainly discussing whether or not there is something in turkey that causes everyone to get so sleepy after that big meal in between the football games.

I had heard this so much over the years. “Turkey has tryptophan in it, and eating all that turkey is like taking sleeping pills”. Right? Well that’s what most believed, and lots still do even though I couldn’t find anything supporting this as I searched the web on this, and that’s because most have heard that this is just not true. In fact a look at Wikipedia seems to say that the whole turkey is a sleeping aid story is nothing more than that… a story:

And most things you find on the internet about the subject look like this:

So I planned on writing on all this and that might have led to discussing how people can be so sure of something and then after a little bit of time, they believe the totally opposite. I would have then discussed how the internet can be the thing that helps us decide between such conflicting ideas.

You type in such questions into your Google search bar as: “Does Turkey cause sleepiness” and you read, and usually go for what has the most written on that particular slant or side, in this case as I said, almost everything written on the subject now says that the whole turkey thing is a myth.

From there I would have gone into how myths are used on the net, how they can both be started and sent into mass knowledge much easier now with out instant communicator… but how the internet is also used to bust such myths…

Wow! I thought it would have been a simple post, but even here, I would have muddied it up the way I seem to do. I mean the sky is open to where I could have taken the post to… would have maybe even brought up the question:

How many of you had to search for a little while after first seeing “RIP Robin Williams” in your social media? How many articles or posts did you have to read before you knew it wasn’t a hoax?

Who knows where I would have taken this simple post about Thanksgiving Turkey and your dad sleeping on the couch? Like I said there are many who still think turkey puts you into a sleep coma no matter how much is said to the contrary… and maybe that’s where I would have ended up on the post… how people can still believe things even though they have been long proven false…

Well, I never got to the post. After all that turkey I ate Thursday, a long nap on the couch was just easier than opening up WordPress and trying to put any thoughts together… I then slipped into a  real turkey coma!

Then I thought I’d do a post yesterday on Black Friday.

Now I would have kept this one really simple, I’m sure of it. Just a couple of links to the shenanigans we all think of when we think of the after dinner shopping massacre:

And then a link to what I thought was the best part of Black Friday this year:

Um, forget Thanksgiving and Black Friday… in fact lets just skip a whole year of holidays and get straight to Christmas 2015!

Yep, I’m the biggest Star Wars nerd there is! That might not come as a surprise to most of you.  I even enjoyed all the fake trailers posted, my favorite was this one:

But for those who don’t know better, those fake and fan trailers may be what people think are the real trailers and not even have seen the real one… in fact I’m not 100% sure that the link I posted as the “Official” trailer really is it… confusing huh?

Who cares right? The movie isn’t even out for another year. Plenty of time for more fake and real trailers to temp fan boys. ( I can’t believe I just wrote that)

Well that might have turned into a muddied post as well… so thankfully I never got to writing it… got to sleepy and needed another nap. Must have been all those turkey sandwiches!

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and a safe Black Friday!
