I never used to. In fact the change of seasons is why I love it here in the “Midwest”
( Whomever called Ohio the Midwest, NEVER looked at a MAP of the whole USA. )
In fact even in my late age I have often been known to call people up at ANY hour at the first sign of snowflakes Continue reading

As a builder of web pages for various organizations, I have developed one policy. For just about any link on that site I use the trick that causes the link to open in a separate tab or window. Here is why
In my early days of browsing I would often click on links of interest and after a while find that I could not get beck to the original page That I found in my search results, because each link abandoned the previous page. I found this to be frustrating.
When I became a web site builder and discovered this trick I was filled with GLEE. This allowed me to embed as many links as needed and my audience would not lose the page my clients page that I got them to open originally. Thus helping to keep people on the clients web page so they can find it again and hopefully book mark it.
(if you click on the GLEE link, you will see that you can still come back to My page and not lose this article, the one that I WANT you to read)
I use this primarily when links will take you to sites off of the clients website.
It seems though, that MANY in the web site builder community are quite snobbish about this and think that this practice is a CRIME! I feel it serves the client to a far better extent. I will continue to use it as long as the trick works.
What do you think? When you are browsing, do you find it truly annoying that separate windows open, or do you fin that it is better so that you don’t lose the original page you found?
I would like your Opinion – Please comment below.
Looking for ‘Nuff Comments:
The time has come for me to face the fact that I HAVE A HEARING DEFICIENCY THAT IS AFFECTING ME AT HOME AND AT WORK.
I have been aware of my slow degradation of my hearing for about 7 years now, and it is reaching the point where I have to take some action. I have had Tinnitus all this time and the ringing sometime is very loud, but I have just grown used to it.
I find that I am often missing important information being spoken around me at work, and people find it funny (“are you DEEF”?) . Its not funny, y’all.
The biggest reason for my not acting on this is the horrendous cost of hearing aids. As more and more of us baby boomers get older the need for this product is slowly exploding, yet there has been little done to allay the cost of these very much needed devices. In today’s technology climate where every version of an electronic device gives you more for less $$, Hearing aids should NOT COST THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS!
I had dug into this a few years ago with the only answer was having to go offshore to get hearing aids at any kind of reduced cost. This morning as I was doing some new research again on this subject I found a company online called Embrace Hearing. Started in Philadelphia by a couple of smart young men, I may have found a very reasonable source for all of us to purchase hearing aids at very reasonable cost.
I will be wirting about my experieince with this proces and with this company as it unfolds Ech writing will have this same tile, and sequential “part x of ?” title so you can follow along.
If by chance you also suffer form this affliction and would like to ad your comments or even a guest blog posting, feel free to leave me comments or get in touch with me via the “contact me” menu above.
I have lately been suffering from Web Sparkleys, also known as WEB A.D.D., or if you are a regular Blogger it may be known as BADOLAIBS.
Do you also suffer from this Continue reading

I mean really! Oh Yea. I am of course talking about old Mr. Smarty Pants Punxsutawney Phil. You know, “the Seer of Seers, The Prognosticator of…” blah blah blah !
This year he has completely misled us into thinking that Spring would be just around the corner. He has totally missed the signs of the 6 PLUS additional weeks of winter that all of us who live anywhere from Kansas to Maine in the U.S. have had to deal with.
Most years that varmint will just play it safe and shout out “six more weeks of winter”. “Oh Great. Not what we wanted to hear” we all grumble. “That’s what you declared LAST year!” And he has been pretty much right on the money.
Now I don’t have anything personal against of Punx Phil, even though He just sits over there in Pennsylvania collecting his royalty checks from Bill Murry. But the only thing this Continue reading

I started my day at work as usual, firing up the dreaded computer, then logging on to the usual nine or so software applications that I use everyday, but upon looking over the master plan for the day I see that I and several other fellow cube-ites (not to be confused with cubits) are all slated for a two-hour time frame away from The Machine. “Ah something a little different today”. Probably some group training. That will be a pleasant change.
An hour later one of the supervisors tells me ‘ I know you have been away a few days but I presumed you would want to go to Franks Memorial service today so I blocked you in for it”
I had not heard. I was stunned. It took Continue reading
