I ran into my first browsing alert while using an ad blocker.
While the problem isn’t directly with wired.com there are plenty of other offenders.
I found some great theme music for Earth Day.
Wisconsin Voter ID requirements aren’t all that difficult people.
How difficult is the concept of Voter ID to grasp for most folks? Apparently pretty difficult. This also lends credence to why we have issues of chalk drawings causing issues with students and people who can’t figure out which bathroom they need to use.
Wisconsin’s Voter ID law is straight forward and the requirements are at the beginning of the bill and not buried within the 25 pages of the 2001 state bill. The Cap Times article has their opinion already set on why voter ID is bad and prevents residents from voting.
I know from our own experience, getting the proper id so we could vote wasn’t an issue for us here in Northern Wisconsin.
I’m also including a copy of the Wisconsin Bill –
New internet service came to our home earlier this week. Thanks Charter for the 65 Mbps speeds. It is wonderful. The installation went without a hitch and the service tech was efficient and helpful.
On the downside there are two issues with Charter.
This was one of the main reasons for getting our own service, was not to have to rely on the business available wi-fi. Now I need to find out how to get hold of Charter Customer Service and have them address the issue.
We signed up for the service three weeks ago, and waited the 18 days for our install date. All was well, Charter took our money and we signed and agreed to all of the terms and conditions. However we continue to get internet pop up screens which interfere with the browsing experience. Again, a Charter #FAIL.
This will be a continuing story, so check back as I’ll update as any progress is made.
Given where we live in Wisconsin, this looked like a great option for us, who don’t have a cell phone currently. Lower costs, good coverage and what appear to be good phones to select, it all seems to be a great fit.
According to this map from the Project Fi site, we have coverage. The green shaded area shows coverage.
Then proceeding to get signed up for the Project Fi service I get this screen.
My question becomes, which is it Google? I understand this is your service and you get to set the qualifications for said service. However, you show me that your service coverage is available in my area, and yet when I attempt so sign up, nope, no service for me.
Now we continue to seek a quality cell phone service.
Fruit I like and one I don’t, brings us to day 10 of the 30-Day Writing Challenge.
I like most all fruit. This is a great thing as we now live in an area that has plenty of Apple Orchards and other fruit bearing farms. When in season we can get all types of berries, and then in the fall, we have plenty of apples to go along with our local AppleFest.
I would say that there isn’t a fruit I don’t like. I don’t care for some fruits, so when in the produce section I’ll skip them. Watermelon is one of the fruits on my, don’t care for list. I’m certain there are other fruits, and without making a laundry list here I’ll leave it at that.
I’m looking forward to getting a new Ninja food processor/Juice machine, in time for berry season to make fresh smoothies.
How about you and fruit?
My feelings on ageism continues our 30-Day Writing Challenge.
As defined by Merriam-Webster: prejudice or discrimination against a particular age-group
and especially the elderly.
While I don’t see or consider myself as elderly, yes I’ll be 63 this year, and yet I’ve seen this propagated in situations I’ve been in. I also note that there is a distinction between feelings and facts. To quote from Ben Shapiro and the Daily Wire, “Facts don’t care about your feelings.”
Ageism is wrong is any form plain and simple. Having worked with seniors for 18 months, they are a treasure and a wonderful resource. Seniors have much to share and contribute to us all.
Book that I love and one not so much continues the 30-Day Writing challenge.
This should be an easy one as I have a Kindle, and read 3-4 books a month. I’ve had the
Kindle for a couple of years now and do like it. Downloading a book is a breeze from either Amazon or my local library, via One Drive.
Books I didn’t love so much and in fact didn’t finish was Scott Sigler‘s Nocturnal. I read much of it, and yet it didn’t resonate with me. I know Scott is active on social media which drew me to his work in the first place. To be fair, I likely should give another one of his titles another opportunity.
How about you and your reading habits?
What tattoos do I have and if they have meaning or significance. Day seven of the 30-Day Writing Challenge.
This is an easy one. I have no tattoos. I’ve never been very interested in getting a tattoo. I
know upon enlisting in the Navy and being in Bootcamp, there were many of my fellow sailors who opted to get a tattoo of some sort. I wasn’t much of a joiner along with my fellow sailors.
I know friends who have tattoos, and I believe some of our family members have tattoos. None for me thanks.
How about you?
Someone who fascinates me and why? Day six of the 30-day Writing Challenge.
This is a challenge that I’ve got to think about. There isn’t anyone who comes immediately to mind. There isn’t any specific person that I’ve got to know simply everything about and read about constantly.
There are many whom I find interesting and compelling, and yet there isn’t one who rises to the top of the list. It would seem as I’ve gone along in life, I’ve kept a wide variety of interests in things and people.
