Well, hasn't this been a boring blog of late? Sorry. Lots of work tends to do that to a person. I have a couple of quick complaints, however. Yes, I know, you don't see me for a week then I come back whining.
First. I don't like the updated WordPress. As a matter of fact, I hate to say it, but I'm getting pretty damn frustrated with it. I don't know how to do things in it "behind the scenes" and that frustrates me. I'm the kind of person who likes to tweak and fiddle and mess with things to make them just the way I want them. At the moment, I can't even figure out how to put up a freakin' picture! I had a couple of the pumpkin-carving pics I was gonna put up and I realized things had changed since the last time I posted a picture and I don't even know how. Argh.
Second. The election is a week away. Thank God. Will it ever end? The amount of mail we've been receiving is enough to kill 10 forests over. My college student daughter says she gets at least two texts on her cell phone… a DAY. If we didn't have an unlisted home phone number now, I'd hate to think how many calls we'd be getting. The television is stuffing advertisements, commentaries, debates, comic routines, and quickie blurbs on the news at us until you can't turn it on without there being something political on the screen. One of my pet peeves? The amount of money these people go through to try and get our vote. It is mind-boggling. I mean, in all sincerety? I wish they'd just put their information out on the internet where we could all look at it and compare. It would be FREE. Make them spend no money at all. None. Nada. Zilch. I mean, not even their own. With all the people needing money in this country, they should have to turn over any funds "raised" directly to a worthy charity to be distributed to the people who don't have enough money to put gas in their car to get to work or can't keep the food pantry stocked to feed their children.
Last. I'm not going to tell you who to vote for. That's your own personal business. I just encourage you to get out there and do it. You can't bitch about it if you don't.
Back to our regular programming…
