While in a close-by town today, I saw a good example that sometimes it’s better to use two separate simple sentences instead of cramming two unrelated things into one. Although I understand what they were trying to say, or at least I think I d. I couldn’t help but think of what they could possibly be implying or suggesting. The sign on the side of a convenience store read
Sorry about the quality of photo only had crappy cellphone camera.
I couldn’t help but wonder if they were possibly suggesting that people use their EBT to purchase alcohol?. Are they targeting the low income alcoholics? Do they think most people with an EBT card are pathetic drunks? Were they admitting they were winos receiving EBT?
When I surpassed 50 followers, I wrote a post thanking all my readers for listening, and got a lot of feedback. I got asked how I created a blog that 50 people thought was worth reading in just 2 months, so I decided to make this post. (Not that I think my blog is super great or anything. Cause I don’t. I just try to make something that I would want to read.) So here are some ideas that might help take your blog to the next level.
Actually, I liked that thing I just said. Let’s make that #1.
1. Make a blog you would want to read.
This is your space. You have freedom to make it something that is 100% uniquely you. So don’t be afraid to change things that aren’t working for you to make it better. I’ve redone my “About Me” page, which should be…

After seeing a news clip of a very young school student that was suspended because, he points his finger and makes a gun sound during playtime, makes me wonder, has the whole world gone mad? Seems to me this type of thing is more a part of the problem rather than the solution. It’s time for less Barney Fife and more Sheriff Taylor. There’s nothing wrong with Barney Fife’s “Nip it in the bud.” advice. The problem is seeing the bigger picture and knowing when, how and what needs to be “nipped in the bud”.

You know you’re old when…
15) You’re about 15 minutes into a long drive in your car when you suddenly realize you don’t remember where you’re going or why.
Hmm….maybe after a few more miles it’ll come to me…
14) You hear a current pop song on the car radio that in the past, you’d hate with every fiber of your being, but now find yourself not only liking it, but turning it up because “it has a good beat.”
“Ooh! Maroon 5! YES! I’m on a paaaayphone trying to call hoooooome….”
13) You find yourself muttering things like, “Dang! They sure don’t make cell phones like they used to!” or “Back in my day, we used to have to WAIT for Internet dial-up connection.”
Man, we had it so hard back then, didn’t we? And is it just me, or…

Food for thought!
The book you didn’t finish writing would have changed the lives of many people.
The band you gave up on would have radically changed the world of music even more so than The Beatles.
The family vacation you didn’t take would have been the last time your whole family would be together and happy. Your dad would die two weeks later.
The dog you didn’t save from being euthanized at the local shelter would have saved your son from drowning that cold day in November.
The orphan who sits on her bed praying for a family to come take her home and love her will never get adopted. She will become homeless and die of a drug overdose. If she had been adopted, she would have become the next Mother Theresa.
The man who never proposed to his girlfriend out of fear of ending up like his parents died, sad…
