Thoughts For Thursday: Political Mash-Up!

On this last day of August, I decided to post a few selected interviews and opinions about politics. I may not discuss politically-related things with others, but that isn’t indicative of being unaware of or uneducated about said topic! Most times, the best way to learn about something is to simply immerse yourself in it – especially when questions asked garner the suspicion and scorn of others. I do my best to ask questions of people who appear to know something on a subject, but if they are unable to answer (and unwilling to admit that they are full of shit) then I shift gears and adjust accordingly. Learning something important and invaluable is a guarantee when I go that route, and the information gathered isn’t occluded by the extraneous and unnecessary.

1st Black Men to Integrate U.S. Marines Honored 75 Years Later

A long-overdue honor for these courageous, determined soldiers! Excellent.

GOOD BLACK NEWS

John Thompson, Cleo Florence, Robert Thomas and Mack Haynes were honored on Saturday for their service as Marines. (WFMY)

The first African Americans to ever serve in the United States Marine Corps were honored on Saturday during a special ceremony at Joe C. Davidson Park in Burlington, North Carolina. For the 75th anniversary of Montford Point Marine Day ― which marks the day President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued an executive order to intregrate the Marines ― the Corps honored the black men who were trained at Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, North Carolina to become Marines in the 1940s.

Between 1942 and 1949, more than 20,000 servicemen received their basic training at Montford Point, according to the Camp Lejeune Globe. About 300 of them are still alive. Four of those men ― John Thompson, Cleo Florence, Robert Thomas and Mack Haynes ― were in attendance for Saturday’s…

Sunday Screen-Shots & Scenery… (Re-blogged)

There was no new ‘Last Week Tonight’ episode from what I see, and I’m busy with an unexpected opportunity which fell into my lap yesterday. In light of that, here’s a re-blog of some lovely in-game scenery!

This first weekend of summer has been perfect! Sunshine and temperatures in the low 80s made for the perfect barbecue: fresh salmon, corn on the cob, broccoli, and water infused with cucumber, strawberries, and mint. That was finished with a nice serving of hand-cranked ice cream! You can’t beat a summertime feast with family and friends. In light of that, enjoy some sunny, serene, in-game scenery! No image descriptions this time around…just sit back and enjoy the view.

Sunday Scenery; Storm-Related Songs…

Just a few select, serene pictures, and three songs about storms. Harvey is wreaking havoc!

My Top 5 Posts – Personal Faves!

I wanted to spotlight my own personal favourites when it comes to posts of mine that I’ve published to date. I seem to have been wasting my time when it came to re-blogging others, so it’s time to re-focus on myself and my writings, and get back to that shameless self-promotion!

First off, one of my side-hobbies is gaming. I enjoy one online game in particular; those who have been reading me from the beginning, or who know me personally, are aware that it is the phenomenon known as The Elder Scrolls Online. Some people, who have never played a video game of any sort, might think that I am an obsessive gamer. Those who actually play, however, consider me a ‘noob’ because I don’t spend every free second that I have on the game. It’s all about perspective, which many people appear to lack! At any rate, TESO has evolved considerably since it debuted in April of 2014. This post of mine from 31 January pays homage to this fantastic virtual world!

Socializing and enjoying the night-life was a ton of fun when I was in my early 20s; marriage and motherhood put a hold on it for a time, but it didn’t end altogether! When I first moved to Seattle after leaving Alaska, Club Vogue was the place to see and be seen – this post of mine from 10 March pays tribute to this awesome, bygone nightspot.

I’m fairly easy-going and relaxed, and am never really interested in fighting or arguing. That being said, I don’t like it when people play head-games, lie, or treat you like shit when you have done nothing but be kind to them. I find it interesting and amusing that a goodly number of people, who have complimented me on my “gentle nature” and what a “kind soul” I am, have vanished into the ether! I’m still the same person I was when they gave me those compliments, so go figure that out. Perhaps they got tangled up in some interwebs of deceit and can’t face the music?

One of those bullshitters pretended to give me a blogger-to-blogger interview back on 23 January, and I just can’t help re-posting my review of said shenanigans! The entire “interview” is in the comments section of the original post, as well as in my ‘Open Thread’ section to prove my point. Unfortunately, there are many out there who will continue to lie about their own crap, even when evidence exists of said crap! I’d say that it sucks to be them, but they are perfectly fine with being lying scumbags – good on them, eh?

I have an eye for beautiful places, people, and things, and dabble in photography from time to time. This post from 24 October, 2015, shows some of the objects which are most likely to catch my eye!

Last, but certainly not least: I write! My autobiography is completed and I’m working on getting it published. I also participated in the NaNoWriMo challenge last year, met it, and might do it again this year. My NaNoWriMo project was game-related fiction based on my primary in-game character, and I have posted a few excerpts from it here on my humble blog. This last link is one of my favourite excerpts, published on 22 March – it’s entitled “Comeuppance.”

I hope that you enjoyed these selections! I think that, if you don’t enjoy your own writings and creative offerings, who else will? Self-confidence and self-promotion begin with ‘self,’ after all!

Faith No More Friday (Re-blogged)

I’m scheduling a few posts for weekend auto-publishing in order to get caught up on some in-game achievements, so enjoy this re-blog of “Faith No More Friday!” Good music is always worthwhile.

Baseball will be distracting me this weekend and I’m working on another fan fiction post, as well as a post about a letter I sent to ESO about some of the in-game irritations – you’re going to laugh at the non-answer I received; I know that I did!

Other people who use WordPress probably look at their site statistics from time to time. Ever notice how some people seem to be determined to click obsessively on ancient posts, just to put some picture in your “top clicks?” It seems desperate, in a way…I suppose it’s just another form of trolling. Some trolls just HATE being ignored, don’t they? Too bad! I said it in my ‘About’ page, I mention it in my ‘Comments / Open Thread’ page, and I’ll reiterate it here: THIS. IS. A. TROLL-FREE. ZONE. NO. FUCKING. TROLLS. ALLOWED! I had thought that it would…

Full Frontal Thursday: 19 July 2017 Edition (Re-blogged)

I appears as if Full Frontal is on vacation until the middle of September, so this post from July was worthy of a re-blog.

😎

Random Ramblings; Myriad Musings

In this newest installment of “Full Frontal” Thursday, Ms. Bee talks about the Drumpf’s so-called “Voter Integrity” Commission, Congressman Louie Gohmert’s free-style “history” lesson, and urges those who want to impeach the Drumpf to do more than just carry signs and chant!

Tuesday Tuneage: Post-Eclipse!

The Total Solar Eclipse Event of 2017 is over, but the memories made by many will last for some time. What an awesome, astronomical event to witness! So magnificent, majestic, and beautiful. I was moved to tears, myself! It was fantastic. I offer up these three moon-related songs while I tend to the post-eclipse crab feast! Cancer, the Crab, is associated with the moon in Western astrology. It is the only sign which is ruled by the moon, just as Leo, the Lion, is the only sign ruled by the sun. Enjoy the music – and, Blessed Be!
