Amazon May be Terrifying

An article I read on Quartz had me thinking, “Amazon May Be Terrifying”!!

Late last month I got wind of Amazon’s new “Keys” program. My eyebrows were in my hairline! Who would do that?! Why would Amazon think this is a good idea?!

But apparently, they do think it’s a fantastic idea that they take your keys and presumably your alarm code and maybe the best snack for your guard dog (or cat) so they can deliver your packages “just inside your door”. I would imagine that this brilliant scheme has been tested and surveyed to death. I would imagine that Amazon already has many keys to many homes and have used these keys successfully.

But HOW did they even come up with this super genius idea?

Prager Univerity - What is the Alt-Right

What is the Alt-Right

I am not much of a “Politico”. I don’t follow any president’s every move. I don’t really pay attention to the latest “Cause” or “Culture War” squabble that the media is capitalizing on. I find it all a bit tiring.

But I do try to keep up to date on what kind of president we have, what’s going on (right or wrong) in the culture at large and how it impacts me and those I care about. And even how I might help or benefit.

Proposal writing is hard.

  • It has to look professional
  • It has to cover what the client asks for
  • It has to say enough without giving away the farm
  • Legalese (it’s the devil!) Continue Reading

Spammers – A pox on your…EVERYTHING!!


One of the banes of blogging is SPAM. I hate it. I have no patience for it. I wish I could nuke it – hard.

I wrote a fun little post here (Baby Seal) and already there are 65 spam comments. SIXTY FIVE.

Blasted BOTS!

And worse, the humans who earn pennies inputting this stuff…GAH! Normally I’d feel sorry for them because they really do earn a pittance. But I don’t ’cause they are wasting my time!

(What? You didn’t know spam commenting was a thriving cottage industry? Welcome to the 21st Century.)

I guess I’ll have to resort to CAPTCHA. I hate that almost as much as I hate SPAM…
