Yeah, I know that it has been a while since I lasted posted anything, but I have been using my tablet more and dislike trying to write with it. I am doing this with one of my laptops, and hopefully will get back to blogging more often.
(I'm actually posting this on both of my blogs)
I know that I have blogged about this before, but after watching what goes on at the Bellagio during the water show I feel that I need to blog about this again.
Where I work there are a number of street performers around. There are some who are in costumes, others who play music, some who dance and some who do other things. I have gotten to know some of them a little outside of there act, and they are all really nice people. Most of them come out daily and take photographs with the tourist in town (locals sometimes will take pictures with them, but mostly it is visitors.)
I have never really understood it, and maybe someone will write in the comments below this blog, but I really don't understand the need and desire to cuss during normal conversation. As I write this, there is a beautiful female sitting a couple of rows behind me that I was working up the nerve to talk to, who got a phone call and during the conversation got to cussing during it.
I had gone to the inauguration of someone who was elected Mayor of Oakland California about 6 years ago. Even though I did vote for the person, I really wasn't a fan of this person. Oh he did a number of wonderful things when he served in the US Congress, but for some reason I just didn't like him.
I guess that it really became noticeable right after the tragic events that killed so many people on September 11, 2001, but it seems as though the United States is in the process of heading towards its end. Now I don't expect it to happen in the next few months, nor in the next few years, but there is a divide going on in this country which is killing it.
Someone that I follow in Twitter asked a question about the need of Literacy Agents in this day and age of the book world. She wanted to know if we felt that they were still needed. My response basically that since I had spent a large number of years in the book business, that I felt that they were needed once fame had hit.
Over the last few years I have noticed a number of sites have added this thing where you can log onto the site via your Facebook and/or Twitter account. Not long ago I used another computer to get onto the Internet, and I used Google Chrome to do it. What I found interesting was that all of my bookmarks were available to me. This surprised me, and it bothered me. When I finished on the machine I made sure that I logged off of Google Chrome.
