Alexa For Southerners, A Bit Of Satire

Most folks in the southern United States have a distinct accent so devices like Amazon Echo might fully understand the dialect or the accent. This video is satire of a Alexa built for the Southern consumer. I found it very funny being from the south myself.

Daily Prompt: Cavity

Sometimes one thing can lead to another. I broke a tooth recently and when my dentist took an x-ray of the messed up molar a tooth right next to it was discovered to have a cavity. I suppose I need to do a better job of taking care of my choppers/teeth. Cavities are expensive and painful. Too many of them would lead to something more extreme.

Quote Of The Day

Pride gets no pleasure out of having something, only out of having more of it than the next man. We say that people are proud of being rich, or clever, or good-looking, but they are not. They are proud of being richer, or cleverer, or better looking than others… C.S. Lewis

Boycotting The State of The Union Address For Reasons #sotu

I normally watch the State Of The Union address that is given to a joint session of Congress and most importantly the American people. However I just can’t listen to anything said by the current president. He’s not doing anything to make America “great” and most of what he will say I can’t trust. I’m not alone in this. I’m sorry, I just can’t. So tonight I will watch two TV shows about super heroes who in a fictional way are making their world’s better and safer. So The Flash and Black Lightning is where my attention will be focused. They are two heroes I can get behind. I will monitor the speech from Twitter ironically. I try to have a open mind but I have my limits.

When One Door Closed, Another One Opened Eventually

From Timehop

Six years ago I was told the news I was being laid off from Olan Mills Portrait Studios Church Directory Division. It happened to a whole lot of other people in the company too. A layoff is an example of when one door closes eventually another one opens. Situations like this requires faith and patience even when things get tough. This is an example of everything working out for the better in time.
