My Journey to WordPress

I started to write a story about how I got to this WordPress blog. I originally wanted a simple short story but found my story was getting far too complicated and would be of limited interest. Let me just say after much trial and error my website ended up being hosted on the WordPress servers. I find WordPress hosting to be inadequate in that most of the features I had on other hosting services require an upgrade on WordPress.  Since I paid for a years’ worth of hosting I’ll have to do with the features that come with the personal plan. I’ll relocate my website in another year.

Political Madness

In my opinion many of the people in the US have gone mad. Political parties on both sides of the aisle have gone off the rails. I see dishonesty and corruption in and around most of the issues that are considered headline news. How do I determine what the truth is? How do I find the real truth?

There was a time when I trusted the news I saw on television or listened to on the radio. The news I see and hear now, coming out of washington, reminds me of grand theatre. I see our political leaders performing for the camera and not really accomplishing anything. will it ever end? When will our government officials and leaders return to the business of governing our country without prejudice?

Working/Confused

I’ve been working on my WordPress site for most of the day today. Like I said in a previous post there is something broken on nearly every page. I wonder if it’s worth the effort.

I’ve also read some posts from other sites; most interesting insight on how others see the world. It’s good to know there are other people who see things the way I do. At the same time there are some blogs that are really out there.

decision

I have visited a few WordPress sites recently and have noticed most of them land on their blog posts instead of a static home page. I like my home page but the information posted there is stale and not relevant anymore (if it ever was). I think I’m going to make some changes.

Updating

I had forgotten how much work was involved in transferring a website from one host to another. Repairing broken links, uploading lost pictures, and correcting page layouts. I have found something broken on every page I have checked, many more to go. This work should keep me busy for several weeks.


 

New Day

This is the first post in a very long time. To many of my posts start with this line. It seems I loose interest in my projects too quickly. I’ll see how things go this time. In a while I’ll post about my trip to San Francisco.

The Blond

Homer, a handsome dude, walked into a sports bar around 9:58 PM. He sat down next to this blonde at the bar and stared up at the TV. The 10:00 news was on. The news crew was covering a story of a man on a ledge of a large building preparing to jump.

Cataract Surgery

I had cataract surgery today. The lens was replaced on my right eye. The procedure went well and so far there are no complications. I’m going to have the left eye done in two weeks. Things are going well.

Hacked

My checking account was recently hacked. The thieves got away with $99.96 which was spent at apple iTunes. Not what I would do with the money, but maybe that was their only option. The money was refunded to my account, so all is well with me – so far. I’ve changed most of my financial passwords and re-secured my computer. Hopefully that will be the end of the identity theft.

The Last Day

Today is the last day of my vacation from McDonald’s. I didn’t really do anything unusual or exciting. I stayed home and rested. Sleeping late is the best thing about being on vacation. There is a down side to vacations; no paycheck but I’ll survive without the money.
