I started using Prisma today after hearing about it and seeing others use it. Normally I don’t filter my pix, even on Instagram. This app will let me tell my story from a different perspective. It’s available for Android and that iPhone thingy.

What happened to all those other big brands that dominated the early Internet experience? Here’s a nerdy remembrance of a few of them.

I first got online back in 1995 after I bought a computer that could get on the World Wide Web. I had other computers that accessed Prodigy and some Bulletin Board Systems. The 1990’s were kind of the beginnings of the commercial Internet. I do miss those days but I kind of like the blogging and social media of the here and now. NPR’s report gives us a historical look back to the early Web.

The Moving Wall, Vietnam Memorial Comes To #Chattanooga

This weekend in downtown Chattanooga at Ross’ Landing The Moving Wall is in town. This is a 1/2 scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial that’s in Washington, DC. This features every name of those killed in action during the Vietnam war. There are over 58,000 names listed on the wall. 58,000 men and women who gave their lives for our country. People from all walks of life left their family and friends never to return. Honor those who served but always work for peace.

My father belongs the Tri-State Military Vehicle Club and they had some vintage jeeps and an ambulance for visitors to the wall to see. These vehicles are an important part of fighting a war.

The picture at the bottom represent the fallen five servicemen who were killed at a military post here in Chattanooga back in July of 2015. Honoring the service and real sacrifice of those who put on the uniform of my country is what this community does in a very special way. Thanks to all who have or are currently serving.

Happy Birthday Weekend Harry Potter #harrypotter #TheCursedChild

Sunday, July 31 is Harry Potter’s birthday. He is the greatest wizard of his time and is the inspiration to millions of all generations. I am a fan of the movies because I am not an avid reader (which I should try to do more of) and what I hear the books cover more details of Harry and friends. Potter is an iconic character that has made a positive impact on the world. Everyone should strive to be magical and to be the best wizard at what they do.

This weekend they are releasing the latest installment of the Harry Potter books, a play written by J.K. Rowling and a playwright called “Harry Potter And The Cursed Child”. It should be interesting to see what happens to Harry and crew next. Will it be made into a film, who knows?
