I reject the Metaverse

Big Tech has deemed that the future is in the so-called "metaverse".  This is a virtual world, where people are supposed to be living and interacting with others, as avatars.  In fact, the biggest of "big tech", formerly known as Facebook, has gone so far as to change its corporate identity to Meta Platforms.  This …

Terri’s Sunday Stills: #Light the Night

I love to see man-made and natural objects lighted at night. In fact, one of the very first signs that humans were evolving into social, technological creatures, was the mastery of fire. Very early humans could not advance until they were able to harness fire, for cooking, warmth, and light. This mastery is the very …

I have not been following the Kyle Rittenhouse trial closely, but I am pleased with the ultimate outcome. Not Guilty on all charges.

Young Mr. Rittenhouse was helping to protect friends in Kenosha, Wisconsin, against BLM and Antifa protestors who were burning and looting businesses last summer, and he was legally armed.  He shot people in the mob, who were threatening him, and we know how those "protestors" destroyed the livelihoods of many innocent people all over the …

45th President Donald Trump, on his new social media platform

I think I’m going to like my new iPhone 13 Pro

I spent the big bucks to get a new iPhone 13 Pro, mostly for the better camera than my old XR (which was pretty good itself, but only had a basic camera).  My old service provider could simply not handle the new device, so yesterday I changed carriers, (quicker and easier than I had expected). …

Cee’s FF Challenge: Straight Lines

Nature does not do anything in straight lines.  No natural feature of the landscape, or living thing on Earth has straight lines.  Only we humans make straight lines.  A Rabbi friend of mine says that human beings are like pebbles, and not like bricks.  Pebbles have rounded outlines, and protuberances everywhere.  You cannot categorize pebbles-each …

Bad news for Facebook is good news for me (and probably for society)

Schadenfreude, anyone?  It seems that the Facebook Empire was taken down today, probably by a hacker.  From this story on the Fox News web site, all parts of the company, including Facebook, Instagram, and What'sApp, were completely unavailable today, all over the world.  Rumors also have it that Facebook employees were prevented from entering their …

…and the Straitjacket tightens, again, and again, and again.

In case you haven't noticed, the freedoms of all Americans, and especially those who live in Leftist parts of the country, have continued to be more and more circumscribed.  Each day, we learn of more articles and people banned, canceled, and limited.  I live in one of those hard-Leftist states, and our freedoms are being …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #153: Wonderful World (in two posts)

I never take our wonderful world for granted.  Wherever I go, I pay close attention to my surroundings, on my own level, and above and below me.  That is why, today, I am linking to another of my own posts, here at Calling-All-RushBabes.  Check out "I've looked at clouds from both sides now", below.  Just …
