Like, Who Cares?

I see that the ubiquitous Like button now appears on my posts. I see that having it appear on the posts is the default. I see that I can uncheck the option to have it there.

I DISLIKE the Like button. I hate the Like button. I will never click on a Like button. Why is there no Dislike button next to the Like button? WTF.

The keeper of the Like button is starting to get on my nerves.

Dislike. Be the first to Dislike this.

Memory

I think one of the things we mourn when people we care about die is that we will never be able to create new memories with them again.

Life seems to be about the memories we can make and the memories we can keep. Memory makes us human. I can’t see it working any other way.

Hmmmm. . .

Maybe this is why I can’t sell the house.

An Insighful & Entertaining Take on Education

Well worth the time.

Vac the Dawg

For Stella, a day at the groomer is like a day at the spa. After going to Sydney at Petit Paws for more than 10 years now, she’s pretty much got the run of the place. She lets herself out to the backyard, she plays in Sydney’s house with Ruby, and lays like the Queen of Sheba in the middle of the floor surrounded by her Lhasa Apso, Bichon, and Terrier minions.

When I picked her up yesterday, Sydney shared this video of calm, cool Stella getting vacuumed. Maybe this is why one of my neighbors refers to her as “The Rug”. Hmmmmm…..

The Queen is Cool

A lot of politicians, world leaders, and SIPs have come and gone, but the Queen endures. Her perspective on life, leadership, and learning is royal and yet down-to-earth and approachable. I couldn’t not watch this short video from start to finish.

Necktop Computer

Saw a reference today to the brain as a “necktop computer“. Then the question following was “what software do I use on my necktop and where did I get it from”?

Interesting question when you think about it. And how do we find and download updates?

MindApples – One a Day for Your Mind

Came upon an interesting site today called Mindapples. Normally I’ll pop into a site like this, look around, and pop back out.

But today I created an account, contributed 5 Mindapples, and look forward to the daily interaction that may develop from an association with this site. I find that spending a lot of time on the web (the nature of the job) causes my mind to turn to twisted mush sometimes. I can get so far out there following link after link that a need real breadcrumbs to find my way back. My daily mantra? Focus, focus, focus. Success rate? Sketchy.

Could someone toss me a mindapple? I don’t know if I’ll stick with the site or not, but topics having to do with the mind interest me. Especially in light of my mom’s difficulties with memory loss and whether I’m previewing my own future when I’m with her.

While I was reading through the Mindapples blog, I read an entry with the following quote by Steve Jobs:

“I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”

That’s is a Mindapple that I’ll savor for quite a while.

The “I Write Like” Craze

I couldn’t resist. I had to find out. Now I know.

I write like
James Joyce

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

Memes and the Social Web

Here’s a pretty good blog post on the definition of memes and how the concept applies to the world of social media.
