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.

The College Football National Championship Game: Georgia vs. Alabama

I like the Alabama Crimson Tide, I do. However my very deep Georgia roots have compelled me to cheer for The Georgia Bulldogs in the college football national championship game on Monday. This is going to be one for the history books either way. Georgia hasn’t had a national title in decades so perhaps them winning this is not a bad thing. The state of Georgia is all abuzz over this game and hopes and dreams are riding high.

I hope my family members who went to Georgia Tech won’t disown me or something like that.

Back To School Time

When I was a kid school started back after Labor Day in the USA because the weather was just a little cooler. These days some kids around the country start back before August. Classes are starting back earlier and earlier these days for various reasons. The challenges our teachers and students face are tougher and they have to be smarter. Our world has changed and the lessons they need to learn are important to their success.

Around the world kids start at different times. For some of my followers their kids are now enjoying Summer break.

Every student, every teacher, every parent has a lot riding on our schools and they need our support. New teachers are coming in as old teachers are retiring and the standards that need to be met are higher. Elementary, middle and high schools along with colleges need to be safe and secure places of learning too. As school starts back lets keep everyone involved in our thoughts and prayers. They need it now, more than ever.

This is a classic commercial from the office supply chain Staples. For parent’s this is a great time of year because the kids are returning to the classroom.
