It’s 2014… hang-on tight!

It’s 2014. Can you believe it? I can tell you this year is going to be quite the whirlwind for me and my family. I can feel it and there are plenty of signs to confirm this notion. 

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

What am I thankful for? I’m thankful for WordPress. It’s allowed me to support my family for the past year.

Keep it up!

It’s Been Awhile

It’s been awhile since I’ve visited this site. Good place to see what’s on the way with WordPress once you login to the backend perhaps. What do you think?

No Google Doodle Today?

Of all the other things that Google chooses to acknowledge and mention through their Google Doodles, they couldn’t have done something to celebrate the Army’s birthday or Flag Day?



I continually tell my Gmail account to remember to always display images in emails I get from the same accounts repeatedly, but for some reason it seems I have to keep clicking them. What gives?

I realize that sometimes companies use odd “from” email addresses to send their newsletters, I realize how this could be an issue (and why that’s really annoying when companies do that!). But some of them that I continually have to tell to display images are simple email addresses that I know I’ve told to remember previously.

Posting to From Microsoft Word

WordPress Logo

This is just a quick test post being generated from Microsoft Word and pushed for publishing to a hosted blog.

This paragraph would be bolded.

This paragraph is italics

This paragraph is blockquoted

This is a bulleted list:

  • item 1
  • item 2
  • item 3

Here’s an interesting note. The code that was generated by this post didn’t contain any of the normal Word formatting crap you usually see when you write a post in Word and then paste into your blog editor. One specific drawback that I immediately see is the inability to optimize the image file name, alt text, etc.

Google Drops Support for Toolbar in Firefox?

If you’re a Google user, the Google toolbar can become just about as important to you as your Gmail Inbox. Can’t believe they’re dropping support for the toolbar in Firefox.

Starbucks, Twitter and Social Media = Free Coffee

This is an interesting story about a little pay-it-forward action for us coffee addicts.

Government Involved = Failure?

Can anything the government is directly involved in related to business and commerce succeed?

Randy “Macho Old Man” Savage

This is an article that was published back in June after Randy Savage was killed in a car wreck. The photo is what struck me. Even as an old man he just looked like someone you didn’t want to mess with. Look at that cold stare and those giant hands!
