Tunes Tuesday: Pat Benetar: Invincible

This song is a powerful anthem of empowerment for anyone. It was also in the sound track to the movie “The Legend of Billie Jean” which was one of the cooler flicks of the 1980’s and starred Helen Slater and Christian Slater.

Rambling About Men Treating Women With Respect

I am a man, in case you didn’t know. As a man raised in the southern United States there were lessons given in how to treat a lady, lessons that still stick with me to this day. I have women in my life who deserve respect from me and to be treated with dignity and kindness. Everyone should be treated with respect no matter what.

Online it seems that some men can get away with saying things to women that are inappropriate and that isn’t right. Being a man doesn’t give you privileges to do or say whatever you want. You have a social and moral responsibility to be polite and kind.

As I have said before in other posts women have it tough. Some folks are trying to rollback decades of progress on the rights of women and minorities which is fundamentally wrong. I believe that all people are worthy of kindness but sometimes they have to be called on the carpet when they do or say things to make them feel unsafe.

Now women aren’t weak people, they are strong, independent and worthy of respect. Society and our world doesn’t work without them. One day one will be President of the USA.

To my brothers out there be kind, respect the people in your lives especially women and be careful about what you say and do because everyone’s reputation is on the line.

I’m open for suggestions and information

I am a fairly open minded person. If I have something wrong then I’m willing to admit it. Sometimes it takes me awhile to admit I’m wrong but I’m teachable. Being able to learn and grow is important. Please tell me the rest of the story when needed .

Happy Anniversary Windows 95 – 20 Years On

Windows_95_at_first_run

In 1995 I got my first serious job out of college working for a TV station. My first big purchase was a new computer and on that PC was Windows 95 where I learned much about what I know about computers.

Today marks the 20th anniversary of Windows 95, the operating system that changed how we interface with the personal computer. My computer at the time had 1 gig of hard drive space and had plenty of room for Win 95 and for file storage. These days 1 gig can be found on a device the size of a postage stamp.

It was on that computer running Windows where I first got online to discover the wonders of the World Wide Web through Mindspring my Internet Service Provider. Really its hard to believe its been 20 years. Time marches on in technology and life.

 

Music Monday: One Direction – Story of My Life

I am not a “Directioner” meaning I am not a superfan of One Direction but I will recognize they are some talented blokes. This is one of my favorite songs of theirs. News reports have them taking some time off as a band which is not sitting well with their more enthusiastic fans. Let’s see what the future holds for them.
