Practice makes perfect, right?

A long time ago, I used to write all the time. Writing was my therapy. Writing gave me the release that I needed to forge through whatever crazy event was saturating my life. At the genesis of social media, and long before the hype of data analytics:  I had a blog. And quite a few followers if I must say so myself. I wrote daily blogs about my personal life, I wrote poems, and short stories. Not everything I wrote made it online. Some things were very personal. I had umpteen journals through out the years, tracking my ups and downs of my life.

Then one day someone took those journals and placed them on a BBQ pit and burned them.

I stopped writing after that.

But slowly, I am emerging. Hoping to find my voice. I want to coerce that being which once gave me so much validity to dance with me once more.

Anyways, the majority of my writing was stored on a gmail account. One that incidentally got deleted. With all this hype of the NSA, I know Google must still have access to the data. What does Google do with old email accounts?

Whenever I get emo about this stuff I watch this video.

Statewide - a Division of Domus Construction: STAY AWAY

Pushy. Deceptive. Abrasive. Desperate. Their strategies for persuasion are unethical. They will not take no for an answer. One of their sales people with an inflated title came to my job!("Director of Government Affairs"..... You're a two bit hustler, and a bad one at that! How stupid do you think I am?) I have witnesses. How wildly inappropriate. I had only been at my job for three weeks and how did he find me there? He even had the audacity to use a scare tactic and say that what he was offering was the only option and if I veered otherwise it would be a bad decision. He then proceeded to outline all the different possible outcomes, all of which seemed threatening. Don't be fooled by the cadence of his slick talking ways. He comes across as trying to help, but when that yields no rewards, he switches tactics and tries to threaten and scare you! Completely unprofessional and uncalled for!

Stay away from Statewide - a Division of Domus Construction!
Leave me alone. …

Chillin' with Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill
If I could time hop and bring back someone from the past to wax philosophical, I'd bring back good ole Winston. Winnie here was good at rallying up the troops and boosting morale. He was an eloquent orator who filled his speeches with inventive word play, alliteration, vivid imagery and metaphors. 
Imagine if you will, prior to tomorrow's NBA finals between the Cleveland Crybabies and the Golden State Warriors, Winston deliver's this speech in regards to the recent terror attacks in Orlando:
 ".......I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat. We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many months of struggle and suffering. 
You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength God has given us, and to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is policy. 
You ask…

Smoke Alarms: Asphyxiation is the Leading Cause of Fire Deaths

Smoke Alarms

Each year more than 2,500 people die and 12,600 are injured in home fires in the United States, with direct property loss due to home fires estimated at $7.3 billion annually. Home fires can be prevented!
To protect yourself, it is important to understand the basic characteristics of fire. Fire spreads quickly; there is no time to gather valuables or make a phone call. In just two minutes, a fire can become life-threatening. In five minutes, a residence can be engulfed in flames.

Heat and smoke from fire can be more dangerous than the flames. Inhaling the super-hot air can sear your lungs. Fire produces poisonous gases that make you disoriented and drowsy. Instead of being awakened by a fire, you may fall into a deeper sleep. Asphyxiation is the leading cause of fire deaths, exceeding burns by a three-to-one ratio.

A properly installed and maintained smoke alarm is the only thing in your home that can alert you and your family to a fire 24 hours a day, seven days a week.…
