It’s Father’s Day Tomorrow, I Miss You Dad

It’s Father’s Day tomorrow and I miss this man every single day of my life. To be honest it sucks he is not here. The saying he’s in a better place is bull. The best place he could be is with his family enjoying life with us. I am not angry at him for not being here but I am angry that we didn’t get more time with him. You never get over the loss. Ever. Dad, I love you, and thank you for being my dad. I do wish we could have dinner together tomorrow around the family table. I miss those times.

Farewell Microsoft Internet Explorer 1995-2022

On Wednesday, June 15, 2022, Microsoft officially ended support for its once-dominant web browser, Internet Explorer. I remember first seeing it in its 2.0 version and I used it for a few years after it adopted Java and Animated gifs. MSIE put a hurting on then-dominant browser Netscape, which I still have nostalgia for.

Microsoft Internet Explorer 2.0

The Internet changed because of Microsoft. Developers made websites to work with it forcing people to use it over alternatives.

Competition finally began to eat into the market share dominance it once enjoyed. IE has been replaced by Edge, an excellent cross-platform browser that can be used on Windows and Linux.

The joke I have heard today is it’s the best browser to download Google’s Chrome. Well, I guess we will have to use alternatives now. Rest in Pixels Internet Explorer.

World Blood Donor Day 2022 #blooddonor @BloodAssurance

The World Blood Donor Day is a reminder of the importance of blood donation as an act of solidarity. Every year on June 14, organizations around the world celebrate World Blood Donor Day, raising awareness of the importance of donating blood and saving lives.

I work for a blood bank and the need for a safe and adequate blood supply is a must. It’s life saving and it makes a difference to those who donate and receive blood donations.

Give when and if you can. Be a part of the solution.
