This has been hanging for as long as I can remember. It’s not safe to swing on anymore, for the branch it’s attached to is no longer sturdy enough to support any weight whatsoever. It’s a matter of time before it comes down.
 

 I remember swinging on this when I was a child.

 That phone has a spectacular camera. No need to carry a dedicated camera anymore. Isn’t technology grand?

Messing around with some filters and frames on my iPad. Thought it would be cool to add some cool effects to one of the photos I took today, and I posted this photo already this evening.
 
 Here’s a different variation of it:
 

 Pretty neat.

Blogging is one of those things that I never really took seriously. In fact, all it was meant to be was something for me to do, and for a place for my voice to be heard on things that I found interesting.

I’ve been a bit more active here as of late, but I sometimes wonder if I am wasting my time. After all, not too many people stop here anymore because of my neglect during the past year or so. Lots going on. All I will say.

All that being said, I am debating on to keep this blog alive, or to close up shop and let it die naturally.

Could be I am just talking out of both sides of my mouth because I don’t have shit to talk about right now? Maybe. I could go on about how Trump’s pissing me off with his incessant obsession with tweeting. Or, I could go on about how the MSM will say anything to undermine him, no matter how petty of a story they come up with.

Whatever, I don’t have much else to say.
Maybe I should just write about shit I know a lot about, like technology and the like. Politics is just too damn frustrating.

That’s all.

Got myself an iPad Mini 4. Loving this thing. Got it pretty much set up exactly the way I want it. Even got a cool Zagg keyboard case for it. Makes typing on it, like writing this blog post quite easy. I never was one for those onscreen keyboards on tablets and the like. I must say, it’s been a long time since I ran with an iOS device, and with iOS 10, this thing will pretty much do anything I want it to do. It’s stable as all hell, too. I’d venture to say iOS 10 will pretty much even run underwater.

Check out my current home screen:


I might, just might have to give the iPhone a go when my contract is up next year. Although, I do really love my Samsung Galaxy Note 5 running Android 7.0.

Mobile devices are fun.
This is why I am in I.T.

It’s because of stuff like this.

Is Al Gore ever going to go away?  He’s like the Clintons.  They all just won’t go away.  Has anyone ever asked Al Gore how much money he’s made off his global warming climate change scam?   If not, why the hell not?  He’s the biggest fraud when it comes to science.  Why, oh why does anyone take this quack seriously?

From The Washington Examiner:

by Fred Palmer – Washington Examiner

Al Gore wants to reverse modernity and save the world from itself through an elimination of its fossil-fuel-based energy system. During the final week of April, his newly created Energy Transitions Commission released a document setting forth a fool’s-errand pathway to “decarbonize” the world’s energy system.

If this sounds familiar, it is. Gore’s plan features a new, sophisticated, and expensive public-relations campaign, but it’s all based on his views on carbon dioxide first broached in his 1992 book Earth in the Balance, which he reissued in 2000 for his failed presidential campaign. The subsequent efforts made by Gore during the past 25 years have transformed little from their genesis, and he remains as tragically wrong today as he was when he first surfaced as an opponent of everything linked to carbon-dioxide.

If you scroll through the verbiage surrounding the document, you will find the core policy recommendation is a massive, punishing carbon tax. Gore would start the tax at $50 per ton, which would increase to $100 per ton over time, essentially destroying the market for continued robust development of the world’s fossil-fuel base. Our economic growth and personal well-being depends on robust fossil-fuel use, so Gore’s plan would destroy these as well.

But, don’t worry! The all-in estimated cost to re-engineer humanity is only a mere $15 trillion—enough money to give every man, woman, and child in the United States more than $46,000.

Al Gore has been demonizing fossil fuels and attempting to marginalize all those involved in the traditional energy sector since 1988, the year the climate-change movement was rolled out in Washington, D.C., which happened to correspond with a nationwide heatwave and with Yellowstone in flames. Ever since, Gore’s pathway to political power and personal riches has been a successful one, to be sure, but his multi-trillion-dollar effort today is his most sophisticated effort to date. Unfortunately for him, it will also fail, because what he’s selling in his “new” proposal is bad for the people being asked to embrace it.
