What I Have To Say, A Note To My Followers #bloggers #wordpress

Friends, I am going to try to lighten up the content you see here. We all can use some levity. However, the world is a place of suffering and pain that cannot be ignored no matter how hard we try. So in my future posts, I will try to have a balance of the sacred, the serious to the silly, and stuff on the fringes. Also, a video or two to keep things interesting.

I realize it’s my blog and I can post what I want, but I want to have a place that is fun as it is pointed, relevant, and reacting to current events. That is why I am posting vintage toys and continuing to complain about Monday’s and the state of the world. Thanks for hanging with me all these years and for connecting here. Feel free to respectfully comment.

I encourage everyone to have a balance and to keep on blogging. The blogging community needs your voice. Let’s have some fun. Peace and love to you all.

Your Blogging Pal, Tony.

Happy Thanksgiving Friends #Thanksgiving

It’s Thanksgiving day here in America. A day set aside for us to give thanks for what we have. It’s a very different Thanksgiving in the world of COVID-19 we live in. There are many reasons to have a grateful heart among the tragedy and turmoil. Be mindful of those we have lost in these months and those who are working and serving on a day where being with loved ones is the rule of the holiday.

My hope is that you are gathered in small groups around a table enjoying a meal that will bring you together or virtually connecting on Zoom or an old fashioned phone call.

To all around the world may you have a spirit of thanks on this day. Grace and peace and love to all.

Have a great day everyone.

Too Much Flash And Awe #Instagram #Twitter #WordPress #Facebook

Storytelling can be as basic as sharing a tale around a dinner table or in front of a roaring fire. It can be as complex as an app on your computer or phone with all its bells and whistles. It’s my philosophy that the more something does the less good it is at performing any one task well and that goes for websites and apps like Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and even WordPress. Maybe the basics where its about text, images, videos and audio presented simply can get the point across. Innovation is great but when it makes sense and can be of help to the end user. You know, there is such a thing as too much flash and awe.
