Jon & Kate Plus 8 – Where Have all the Interesting Episodes Gone?

( TV andVent )

I am not going to badmouth Jon & Kate. I think there are a number of issues there, just like there are in most families, but they’re going to need to work those out for themselves. So, Dear Jon & Kate Plus 8′s PR rep and TLC, I have been a fan of the show [...]

Fraud Sucks

( Vent )

Had to cancel my credit card due to fraudulent charges. Don’t like scammers, spammers, and people who can’t make a living contributing something positive to society.

Social Media and Monetization

There has been some talk recently about the monetization of Twitter streams. Some of the Twitter divas would like to capitalize on their large pool of followers by selling ads on their Twitter streams. I’m disappointed. Why does everything have to monetized?

Sigh, Part II

( Me andVent )

Would you believe I did it again?! My domain expired again last weekend and I found out because my email stopped working.  Now, I’ve been trying to move the registration to my current webhost and having no success. You would think, though, that the old host might let me know that the domain is about [...]

Women are like puppies…

( TV andVent )

If you watch Trading Spouses, you may have experienced a whole new level of male chauvenist piggy-ness. One of the husbands actually said, “A woman is just like a puppy dog. If they do something right, you give them a treat – flip ‘em a dollar bill or something – and they’ll be all right.” [...]
