Just the briefest of almost-an-issue this week.
My mind finally slowed-a-bit after 15 years of RIP !

Actually, social media and news services
started ‘copying’ my slant and presentation
and its getting harder to be original.

This week’s excuse ?

I finally got the power supply replacement
for my $49 tablet…
and WOW !!!
(been learning & playing with it all week)

I’M A HAPPY CAMPER !

I’ve gotten up to, and over, a 3 hour charge.
(battery life on cheap tablets can be a problem)

Some of the apps download slowly…

but once installed are FAST to use.

I’ve installed..

XFINITY TV (comcast)
NETFLIX
GO WEATHER
PALTALK (video chat)
TWITTER
IMDB
SKYPE
GMAIL (already installed)
and my main AOL account.

YOUTUBE  was the only thing that took
a bit of buffering… maybe the connection?
Oh, and volume… no problem with headphones,
but a strain to hear music or voices without.

(I have to check further, there may be a way to boost it up)

I can check any one of those in seconds.
(much quicker than booting up the computer)

With USB, 32gig microSD expansion, dual core, HD,
and front and rear cameras, its a fantastic device.

SKYPE  ANYONE ?

Case & screen protector ordered separately…
with (slow boat from china) shipping…

004 - dad day tablet

THE TOTAL CAME TO … $55.06

Worth a gamble even if a piece of crap…

I GAMBLED  and   WON !!!

Carla Laemmle

005 - RIP DEAD - Carla Laemmle

Rebecca Isabelle “Carla” Laemmle was an American actress
German-Jewish, & niece of Universal Pictures founder Carl Laemmie.
She was a movie actress in the 1920s and 1930s,
and one of the longest surviving actors os the silent film era.

006 - Carla Laemmle 2 silent film

Laemmle entered films in 1925, playing an uncredited role
as a ballet dancer in the original silent film version of
The Phantom of the Opera(1925) and later
had a small role in the early talkie version of Dracula (1931).
In that classic , she was (again uncredited) a bespectacled passenger
riding in a bumpy horse-drawn carriage with
Renfield as he is traveling
to Dracula’s castle.
In the documentary The Road to Dracula (1999),
Laemmle proudly states: “I had the privilege of speaking the
first lines of dialogue in the first talking supernatural thriller”.

007 - Carla Laemmle 3 pretty


Laemmle continued to appear in small roles until the late 1930s,
when she disappeared from the movie screen.
Briefly came out of retirement
to play a vampire in Vampire Hunters Club (2001).

008 - Carla Laemmle 4 old

rest in peace

I’m throwing a party on the 25th

for the guys (and girls) from work.



009 - party bar

I stay in touch with more than a few since I left,
but there’s very little excuse for ‘us’ to get-together
outside of work…  So, last fall, I had a casual thing
(beer, pizza, pretzels) for about a dozen (maybe 20 invited).

This time, I had a sign put up with the invitation…
Speaking to one of the guys, making sure the
invitation-sign actually got put up…
I was asked… how many people are you expecting ?

I SAID ‘ALL ARE WELCOME’..
(even retirees and management)

and the response from my response was…

YOU COULD HAVE A BIG CROWD,
EVERYBODY’S TALKING ABOUT ATTENDING !

010 - riot on street

(truthfully speaking, I’m not a particularly popular guy)

GUESS EVERYONE’S LOOKING FOR
A LOCAL, CASUAL NITE OUT.

011 - cop car at riot

Should I put the police on alert ?
In case it turns into a ‘twitter party’
and hundred show up ?
(there goes the plumbing)

HOPE I GET GOOD WEATHER…

I hope to take advantage of my deck and yard.
(maybe even throwing around the football in the cemetery)

012 - toga party

TOGA TOGA TOGA !!!

My FATHERS  DAY…

013 - dad day kid logo

Well, with kids spread from France to California,
and my at-home daughter putting in an 8 hour day,
I’m kinda just taking it easy…

(wasn’t even going to do this much RIP)

AND NO CALLS FROM MAURY POVICH !

The over-the-top menu for moi ?

CHEEZ-IT CRACKERS
NAME BRAND PEANUT BUTTER
PECAN TARTS
and
CHERRY PIE

AHHH… I’M IN HEAVEN

(especially with my ‘carb’-less lifestyle for the last year)
((still hits-the-spot))

Slept late, showered and shaved(!), and, at noon,
went to see my father at the cemetery
with my mother and sisters.

A beautiful day… low 70’s, no humidity,
a breeze… really spring-like.

Came home to fathers day greeting from the neighbors
(which were returned by me),
went in… gave the cats some chicken,
had some of my own with a rice-beef side-dish…
and finished it off with 2 pecan tarts !!!

014 - eat like pig

O-WHATTA-PIG-I-AM !!!

(I’ll make up for it all week)

CLIMATE CHANGE

015 - politician bs climate solution

I wish both sides could agree
that the argument isn’t whether or not there is climate change,
but whether its a cyclical event,
or its a man-caused phenomenon !

POSTURING FOR THE PRESS
SEEMS MORE IMPORTANT THAN
SEEMS MORE IMPORTANT
THAN DEFINING THE PROBLEM.

OKAY… ALL DONE !

You didn’t see that coming, did you ?

My mediation and court date got cancelled again,
till mid-july this time (IT AIN’T ME!).
The way I see it…
more time for my ‘team’ to go over spreadsheets
and find the hidden ‘easter eggs’.

So I got my hair colored-and-cut for myself, not court…
LOOKIN’ REAL PRETTY THESE DAYS !

Oh… no dummy here…

At first I thought I’d have more time to REALLY clean & straighten
the house for the party… but then I thought…

WHY BOTHER ?

I’LL HAVE TO DO IT AGAIN THE MORNING AFTER !

So, the smart move is to make the place presentable
enough so they don’t talk about conditions later on,
but not do the ‘heavy lifting’ until its over.

017 - fredo corleone

I’M SMAHT.. NOT LIKE THEY SAY

…smart enough to ‘get’ while the ‘gettin’ is good…
