2021 Week 2 – One Down, 51 to go!

After almost 2 weeks off work in December I’m ready to get back to work and make it a productive year! This week was going to be heavy on Sports until the attack on the Nation’s Capital. I thought I had seen it all in 2020 and this just topped it. I can’t believe the protesters made it all the way into the gallery. There was talk about an elected official who was part of the crowd so it’s going to be interesting to see if he was the one who opened the doors to get people into the secured areas…

The college football championship was set last week. Notre Dame was blown out by Georgia and Ohio State showed Clemson who’s boss. The Championship game is Monday evening & it’s going to be a good one. My $ is on Ohio State to take home the trophy.

Colts make the playoffs! It was a game that was a LOT closer than it should have been but the Indianapolis Colts are heading to the playoffs!

Update: Their game against the Bills yesterday was a disaster. Some really questionable plays that will most likely be a topic of discussion for fans in the weeks to come…

Finally the NCAA Tournament is going to be played in its entirety in Indiana. That’s a huge win for the city and state. It’ll be nice to see Indy in the National spotlight again.

21st century predictions. They were close to what we have today!

I didn’t take a lot of pictures this week & what I took isn’t anything that any of you would find interesting. I’ll try & do better next week.

Finally, I’ve been playing with a new (to me) distribution of Linux called “Elementary.io“. I installed it on my old 2012 Mac & it’s brought new life to the old hardware. If you’re used to the Mac OS and have an older MacBook not being used this is worth checking out. Installation is very easy and you can be up and running in 20 minutes.

¡Yo quiero Taco Bell!

Sometimes it’s NOT how you say it, but WHAT you say!

Two days ago East Haven, Connecticut Mayor Joseph Maturo Jr. told residents in his city that they should eat more taco’s to support East Haven Latinos and on Thursday his message was tested when a group of Latino activists sent 500 taco’s to the mayors office… Read More

Politics and Social Media

With advent of social media its now easier than ever to speak your mind.  The other night while watching President Obama’s State of the Union Address (one of the few presidential speeches I watch regularly) I could not help but notice the increased amount of ‘chatter’ on Facebook and Twitter.  Some of it funny, some of it supportive, some of it political and some of it nasty.

I’m sure there were a few “un-friendings” and “un-follows” because of differing political views and statements.  I actually like to hear what other people have to say.  It helps me better understand who they are as a person and so far I have not seen anything that I would particularly take offense to .  I may disagree with the opinion or statement but that’s my right to do so.

These disagreements are not new to society but using social media as a platform to voice your opinion exposes you to a larger audience and the potential to reach (or offend) a lot more too.  I can’t wait until the elections roll around.  it’s going to be interesting to read what people are saying and hop other people react to it!
