Weird

Got a zombie star this evening from a 2-year old post. Usually, those come from the FP reposting an old article, usually on a holiday or special occasion, and then new people read through the old comments.

Family game night.  Family game night.

I jump on here for the first time today and run through the most recent posts. People are complaining about the loss of body text ant the bar at the top, but what hit me is this:

Parenting and social media

Instagram, Pinterest, Tiktok, Youtube, there are so many social media platforms that our kids want to be on these days.  for those of you who have kids old enough to engage, what do you allow them to do?  How do monitor and protect them?

I had to take Genie to the Kia dealer this morning. She began spouting coolant into my engine and smoking. The verdict is a blown water pump. Fortunately, it will only be $50 under warranty. Unfortunately, there are none in the US. One will have to be shipped.

Neighborhood crisis Neighborhood crisis

Our newly elected HOA officers just announced by email that they will be having speed humps installed in our community to help enforce the 15 mph limit. This has started a huge back and forth over the ether over the last 12 hours.

The birthday party is LOUD. I’ve got 15+ 7th graders running amok in one house. Some of the boys went out on the cul de sac and started ringing neighbor’s door bells. I had to go out and put the kibosh on that. I told them to get inside or they’d find my tire tracks on their backs (wheelchair, not car; I’m not…

So about this 10 year challenge thing So about this 10 year challenge thing

I came across this article in Wired yesterday proposing that this meme is a way to get people to volunteer data for facial recognition algorithms. It’s worth a read. Regardless of what you think about the article, and I think it’s just an entertaining read, I remain in the camp that says it’s best to avoid putting…

UPDATE: Cynthia is ready to close me out with a price for internet only of $109/month plus taxes and fees. Not so fast. I am on the website and see that the regular price for my internet package is $100/month. She tells me that is the current price for my service, but I started service at a point in the past when…
