Dining That Helps The Poor

Eating out is not something I normally do, but I did tonight. My dining out had a special purpose. I went to on of the 50 restaurants in my area that were participating in a program wherein 20% of their proceeds would go toward feeding the poor and indigent meals. The tostada I had was tasty, but... Sign in to see full entry.

The Career College Concept

A suggestion by a friend brought me today inside the doors of a career college. Actually, he had made an online suggestion--in paralegal studies. Being aware also of a local career college, I decided to check that out as an additional option. I went there very informally, dressed casually and coming... Sign in to see full entry.

Alas, School Pranks Have Become Criminal

Reading the news of the Teaneck High School break-in (New Jersey) begs the question just how far pranks have gone. There were 62 high school students arrested for breaking into the high school in the wee hours of the morning, breaking chairs, writing graffiti, spreading debris, wiping petroleum...

Minimum Wage Is A Rachet To Perpetual Discontent

There is actually good news that comes out of Washington, DC, on rare occasions. Such was when the Republicans banded together to defeat the minimum wage law increase to $10.10. So am I a businessman to take this news with such glee? Hardly. Rather, I am one who is well aware of the dynamics of the... Sign in to see full entry.

Afflicted With Candida

Candida is the name for the type of rash I have. Candida is a type of fungus related to yeast. It is most commonly associated as a yeast onset in women, but men can be affected as well. I had to revisit the problem in the past few weeks after having been afflicted by it in the past, a few years ago... Sign in to see full entry.

Emergency Food And The Justification For It

I saw in the local grocery store, just recently, a bucket of emergency food. That is the first time I have ever noticed it. I took a closer look and saw that it included 40 meals and that its cost was almost $50. I marvel I have never seen this before. On the radio, conservative commentator Glen...

I Do Not Understand Video Game Addicts

Video games have such a grip on today's youth that it almost seems like there is a conscious entity sent to capture our children. One of my friend's son was withdrawn from the rest of us during my visit, because he had to play his xbox video games. On the positive side, I did get to see him from... Sign in to see full entry.

A Possible Emergency? No Choice But To Make Sure

My clumsy response attempting to my cell phone, followed by my attempts to call back, led to me listening to listening to a phone off the hook. My cat sitter had called. I assumed she was finally going to return my spare apartment key to me. I am not sure who called when I listened to my phone and... Sign in to see full entry.

CGI Has Come A Long Way, But Not Far Enough To Be Realistic

Even while the x-box addicted youth are wowed by the backdrops of their virtual reality computer games, anything that is a computer generated image is still plenty fakey to me. The images are too comic bookish--granted, with magnified detail--and perhaps fit just right with the superhero movies of... Sign in to see full entry.

XP Countdown

The orange house icon has appeared in the lower corner of my computer, with a message that in a matter of just a few days the microsoft XP operating system of my computer will no longer be update and may not be protected. Therefore, given I am also going on vacation, it may be sometime before you... Sign in to see full entry.
