It's Out There

Since the day of the world wide web, one can find about anything they want to. Lovely way to seek and search new things.
I don't who said "you can't teach and old dog new tricks"
The only I know who might have trouble in learning new thing, someone who is extremely arrogant.
Opinion time...There is a difference between arrogant and self confidence
Even to explain the difference between arrogant and self confidence is...A person with self confidence will be honest about there short comings with humor and humility.

Last night on Public Television there had feature story on POOR PEOPLE CAMPAIGN and I found it interesting and appalling on how the poor in our country is treat.
And lot of get up and go to work every day.
Although not sure at present time there INVOLVEMENT is. Little research I've done but it seem to be more active on east coast of the United States.
Opinion time....I'm for federal basic income of some type for every citizen. And also I'm for a simple basic tax rate.
I know I will ruffle a few feathers on this. And if there to many feathers I ruffled I will explain my self before I take off to Kona, Hawaii.

I decided not yet go off on our government shut down. Believe me I got plenty things to say.
And I know the SMITHSONIAN is close down, but that place I would like to see.

Last few days I been putting odds and ends in there search engine to see what comes up. Even my maiden name.

But I put in my mothers mothers maiden name of SHIRLEY and many things came up under that search term.

One of my favor flower is HOLLYHOCK and this list things or items President Truman loved wrote to his wife Bess.

Since I had BROCCOLI for dinner and not just broccoli but anything food related and even one needs to fall out box.
This on food packaging.

This isn't just all what put in there search engines. But I found it interesting.
Also found this interesting it's called LOOKBOOK and I never heard of it. Not sure what purpose of it is.
My job doesn't require a dress code. But when I go out I make sure I'm put together with some class. I don't go out unkepted
I even went to there main page and put a few what I call INTERESTING TERMS

Not down at my weight lost group but I can handle the small gain. I cut out pattern pieces for my next quilt block I will be sending off. Then also I got the fabrics picked out.
Fingers cross that I will get the block done and send off before I leave.

Question time...Do you every search on the world wide web for let just say "off the wall " items.

Coffee is on

  1. I don't do a lot of internet searching anymore. I need to be careful how much time I spend typing and scrolling because my hands have pain.

  2. I like the definition of self confidence, as opposed to arrogance. No, I don't do much in the way of random searching, but I do very easily get happily lost in the land of YouTube.

  4. I find I only search for things I want to know the answer to. And even then, it has to be an immediate need.

  16. I don't recall googling for "off the wall" things. But the one thing that I have been googling a lot lately is whether a particular star or game show host that I haven't heard about lately is still alive. :-)

  17. I wonder what my dad would have thought of Google. We bought a set of World Book Encyclopedias around 1950. My dad said he was going to read through every volume. He started with "S" and told us the next day a surprising fact about the King of Siam. I don't think he kept up with his plan, but I know he would have loved Google and spent many a happy hour on line. (Which would have been better for him than his usual "Happy Hour" :-) ).
