I knew that my conversation with my 82/year young mother would keep paying forward in my consciousnesses thoughts. Interesting how she gave me a zinger that caught my attention big time! She said that I seemed more caught up in the present, letting go of the past, and no longer fretting with what the future has in mind.
The Hunkster Hubster picked up some groceries, where we share the chores of putting together dinner. A ritual of sorts for the empty nesting kind. Except this is the Easter long weekend where we get to spend the whole weekend together. That is not a big deal in our world. Even though we both work full time, our hours are lopsided and inconsistent. To have a four day weekend off at the same time is of the winning-Lottery kind.
For my husband to recognize it as a special occasion makes our goofy get-ups almost forgivable. Certainly, for sure if no kids were to drop by. Since that is highly unlikely these days, it is about making sun when the sun shines.
Like the bed pan I found at Goodwill yesterday for $12 at half-price because it was 50% Blue Tag day there. I've been the luckiest on Blue Tag Day. Maybe there is a system to group things together as they are being priced? Now wouldn't that be amazing eh?
I've been reading a lot about Bitcoin from ages ago. Wanting to extrapolate what the "experts" said back then: optimistic or pessimistic or skeptical? One may think that it would be an accurate portrayal of how things unfold online. However, let's be realistic and recognize that anything that is held online is vulnerable.
Then again Carney (another secret crush, that is no longer a secret) says that it may actually work: that Blockchain may work across financial and global boundaries. That WOULD be revolutionary.
Yet even if Carney were to drive up in a Limousine towing a Guelia for me (you know that red commercial? I'd insert here for a fee.
At some point as a blogger or writer you have to decide that what you write is worthwhile. Putting the words out there with hopes that someone would really like what you're saying and *POOF* you're a Brand Ambassador!! Perfecto. Bellisimo Mon Ami!!
I've supported @SocialFave as it was a launchling and now picking up steam. Its CEO, Philippe Trebault @MisterFavor and I became connected back when I started in 2010. March 2010 as a matter of fact. Linked In was my very first approach to social media. This group of early adopters I met there are the most important kind. Somehow, even as I am compelled to go to work to earn my keep, there are those that pop out in front of me when I'm online. I'd have to say the few that immediately come to mind:
* Sandy Hubbard @sandyhubbard
* Joseph Ruiz @josephyruiz
* Dave Reynolds @therealdavereynolds
Those are the long-timers that were experimenting and discovering a really neat feature nestled among the nest of social media, which was just starting to take flight: the #hashtag conversation.
We've now graduated to being able to carry on public conversations with remarkable people of every different, race, color and kind. Joined by intellect, creative minds, gifted wordsmiths, artists, photographers. Yet as the millions clamber on board, how many are really making money or doing it to pass the time?
I think the most superb thing about starting out 7 years ago, some names were really getting widespread recognition (think Sean Knight + JessicaN + a few more that are at the top in the media's mind ... like the CEO Benoit who became a mutual follower back then.
