Roseanne: From Grab To Gab

Give me a break. Here's a wonderful example of how Hollywood is cannibalistic...not that you should be surprised.

Perhaps you missed the story. Roseanne in a post to her website expressed her opinions about how Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie use their money and thinks that Angelina should make a choice on who to endorse in the Presidential race.

Roseanne writes, "Also Miss Jolie says she likes McCain too and hasn't decided who to endorse....huh? Aren't you supposed to be somewhat enlightened, or do you not know that the African daughter you hold in every picture had parents who suffered and died because of the Republican party's worldwide economic assault on Africa over the last few decades since Reagan?" she adds.

The only reason I'd even spend time on this post is to applaud this A-List Hollywood couple for at least being open to another candidates views. Typically, Hollywood clings to liberal issues and Democrat candidates. So, for major figures in Tinseltown to go on record and even consider a Republican candidate to me is nearly unheard of.

In case you are wondering, I feel that Senator Obama is little more than great spoken words in slick clothes. So many are ready for "change" and something "different" that they seem to be focused on a candidate who is young and African-American. Dismiss how wrong he'd be for the Oval Office.

Senator McCain wouldn't be my first choice for President either. However, given the choice, I'd rather have him than Obama.

Thanks Brad and Angelina for being open-minded. Roseanne, you've faded into oblivion ever since your horrible grabbing rendition of the National Anthem. Perhaps you should grab and gab less and focus more on helping those around you.

See You Around, Mike

Three weeks ago, I attended the memorial service of a dear Brother in Christ. Sunday, June 10, would've been his 56th birthday.
I miss my friend. But what's sad is that I didn't miss Mike until he was gone.

At least in the middle of the odd month, but definitely by the last week of it, Mike would always reach out to me with a request. It was usually to load a certain worship music video or some game show music. Sometimes, he needed some specific slides created or sound effects. Mike put a lot of thought into preparing the lessons.

For certain lessons, Mike asked the kids to write something that was bothering them or something that was a sin. Then he had them take hammer and nail to that card and attach it to an old rugged cross. Mike often brought in props to physically connect the Bible stories to the kids. For example, when he dressed as an innkeeper and walked in a wheelbarrow full of fresh cow manure. He was adding the smell of a barn to the lesson just to help set th…

Turtle Invaders Are Here!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zyrobotics, LLC for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

It's sad to think that some of you reading this have never heard of or played Space Invaders. Ah, the memories of playing that game at the mall arcade (something else long gone)! Sigh. Now, multiple game platforms exist and few games are more convenient than those playable via apps on your phone. With a wink at the classic Space Invaders approach, Turtle Invaders is a new app for younger children and children with special needs. I downloaded it and took it for a spin.

Finally Leaving the Layoff Swamp

A month ago, on March 12, my 9-month layoff ended as I began working for the City of Baltimore as an IT Project Manager. I described many times the experience of being laid off like being in swamp. Not just “in” a swamp but trapped or lost in a swamp: uncertain of its depth and dangers, being anxious to escape, admiring the surroundings, feeling at times miserable, and doubting your skills.

I learned many things from this experience about myself and those around me. Hopefully, I'll compile these thoughts into a book soon. For now, here's a short list. One tip for each month of my layoff:
