Recent Interest

QFor the past few days I have been reading posts about Qanon. Until recently I hadn’t heard or seen anything about that topic. I was looking at posts under the reader tab on my WordPress editor page and decided to see what was found under conservative. There was a post that interested me with the heading of ‘Q’. I found the information in the post extremely interesting. Nothing that I want to repost or quote, but I will continue to read posts about ‘Q’.

To Work or not to Work

Ronald McDonald

I can’t decide if I want to continue to work. I took official retirement in 2012. That worked well for me for a few years then I started to get bored with not having anything to do. After a while I got a job at McDonald’s. Working at McDonald’s is a tough job, the work is very demanding, customers are very demanding, and the company is very demanding.

I’ve worked at McDonald’s for just under three years and have reached a point where I don’t want to work anymore. It gets more difficult to go into work every shift. Last week I called in sick on Tuesday and on Wednesday I texted my boss indicating I wouldn’t be in for the rest of the week. I need to mention I have submitted my notice to quit on three previous occasions. Each time management has talked me into not quitting so I stayed on.

Today is Sunday and I have one more day off before I am scheduled to work again. After having a week off going back to work is not something I am looking forward to. There is one problem, I like the money I earn at McDonald’s. My question to you and the universe is; should I go back to work or should I quit?

 

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.

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.

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.

Forgotten website

I have known for a long time that there aren’t many people visiting my website. One of the reasons I have keep this site open is to make it possible for friends and relatives to find me. For a period of time I posted my address and phone number, hoping someone would call or write to me. Nothing ever happened except I started getting a lot of robo calls.

This website has been on the internet for 20 or more years. It’s appearance has changed many times and may continue to change as I get new ideas about its appearance. I don’t use the website to its full potential, I could use it as a personal daily blog but I don’t often have a lot of news or interesting information to share.

I don’t use Facebook very often so if messages are left for me on Facebook chances are I may not see them until months after they were posted. I intend to include a contact page so anyone interested in contacting me will have an easy way to do so.

Dilemma

I am having a hard time deciding what to do about my McDonald’s employment. The other day I submitted my resignation. Patty talked me out of resigning. She said something to the effect that she can’t get along without me. She gave me Saturday and Sunday off and I will have a static schedule of 8 AM to Noon Monday through Friday. I’m going to give the new schedule a try to see how it all works out.
