Glad I have not participated in social media

Why?

Just look at those supposedly harmless platforms. Yesterday we find out the truth. We are being surveilled by big tech. They track EVERYTHING you do on the net, and they also communicate between companies about platforms they want to force out, and about you if your causing them grief by posting TRUE news..

I read their privacy and terms of use before I decided to join in. If you care to read these, and your a logical reasoning person with out a herd mentality, most would have to admit they would not have anything to do with social media companies who now are enjoying total control over what we see and hear on the internet.

These supposedly harmless platforms are now being used to control our elections, and who will Govern this country in the future. Did you expect this to happen when you joined up? Maybe you should reconsider....



Watch this liar, Zuckerberg under oath yesterday. Look at the data they collect about YOU!!!!

Is it a good or bad idea to let a 15 year old visit her mom who is in jail for 7 mont

The charge is a check fraud charge and it is a seven month sentence. I am wondering how my wife should prepare and what are some good things to do. And if my 15 year old daughter should visit My daughter she seems to be handling it fine. I told her right away about it and she reacted pretty calmly. I told her mom did the wrong thing and is rightfully serving her punishment. They have a good relationship. The main problem I have is she will see her mom in a jail jumpsuit and see guards and other inmates that could be intimidating. Is that ok for a 15 year old to see" Actually my daughter does not seem scared but instead seems excited and enthusiastic to visit. This is strange to me. Do you find this normal" My daughter seems to find the idea of her mom having to wearing a uniform, sharing a room funny. I wonder why she would think it is funny. My wife says bring her if she would like to and my daughter says she would like to but I don't know if it is a good idea. She hasn't gone yet...

Katharine Hepburn: The Circus

I love this story from Katharine Hepburn’s childhood; in her own words.

“Once when I was a teenager, my father and I were standing in line to buy tickets for the circus.

Finally, there was only one other family between us and the ticket counter. This family made a big impression on me.

There were eight children, all probably under the age of 12. The way they were dressed, you could tell they didn't have a lot of money, but their clothes were neat and clean.

The children were well-behaved, all of them standing in line, two-by-two behind their parents, holding hands. They were excitedly jabbering about the clowns, animals, and all the acts they would be seeing that night. By their excitement you could sense they had never been to the circus before. It would be a highlight of their lives.

The father and mother were at the head of the pack standing proud as could be. The mother was holding her husband's hand, looking up at him as if to say, "You're my knight in shining...

A life lesson from Coach John Scolinos. A must read. This man was wise and so far ahead of his time. :clap::clap::clap:

From a friend on FB:

I promised myself years ago, every time I saw this I would re-post, I didn’t write it but it’s awesome and worth the share! Happens about twice a year. Rings true EVERY.SINGLE.TIME.... Here goes!!!
“17 INCHES" - you will not regret reading this. An excellent article to read from beginning to end.
Twenty years ago, in Nashville, Tennessee, during the first week of January, 1996, more than 4,000 baseball coaches descended upon the Opryland Hotel for the 52nd annual ABCA's convention.
While I waited in line to register with the hotel staff, I heard other more veteran coaches rumbling about the lineup of speakers scheduled to present during the weekend. One name kept resurfacing, always with the same sentiment — “John Scolinos is here? Oh, man, worth every penny of my airfare.”
Who is John Scolinos, I wondered. No...

Thoughts from Charlie Chaplin

Charlie Chaplin lived 88 years.
He left us these statements:

(1) Nothing is forever in this world, not even our problems.

(2) I love walking in the rain because no one can see my tears.

(3) The most lost day in life is the day we don't laugh.

(4) Six best doctors in the world...:
1. The sun,
2. Rest,
3. Exercise,
4. Diet,
5. Self-respect
6. Friends.
Stick to them at all stages of your life and enjoy a healthy life...

If you see the moon, you will see the beauty of God...

If you see the sun, you will see the power of God...

If you see a mirror, you will see God's best creation. So believe it.

We are all tourists, God is our travel agent who has already identified our routes, bookings and destinations... trust him and enjoy life.

Life is just a journey! Therefore, live today!
Tomorrow may not be.
