Happy Friday: 15 January 2016 (Re-blogged)

Happy Friday, everyone! Enjoy these three select songs from January of 2016 while I begin my weekend gaming session.

Amazing how all of the followers that I used to have disappeared after Baby-Hands McDrumpf took office! It appears that they were his supporters, and took offense to my distaste. It is what it is! C’est la vie. Now that I’m on Facebook, I’ll have more ESO gamers reading and following me. So much for the ‘supportive’ and ‘inclusive’ WordPress ‘community.’
ROFLMAO

Nothing really to say today, so here are three songs about “she.” Guess what? “She” – is me!

A public elementary school in Mississippi named after the president of the Confederacy will be renamed to honor the first black president of the United States.

Davis Magnet International Baccalaureate Elementary in Jackson, which is named for Jefferson Davis, will be renamed Barack Obama Magnet International Baccalaureate Elementary beginning next school year, the school’s PTA president, Janelle Jefferson, said at a Jackson Public Schools Board of Trustees meeting Tuesday night. The prospect of changing the name of what Jefferson called the best elementary school in Mississippi was raised by a student, she told NBC News. “They know who [Davis] was and what he stood for,” she said. “This has a great impact on them, because [Obama] is who they chose out…

Excerpt: Seclusion (Re-blogged)

I’m putting the finishing touches on a few posts that will be published on a schedule over the weekend, since gaming will be of primary importance. Enjoy this re-blog of an excerpt from my 2016 NaNoWriMo fan fiction!

She jolts awake. The nightmare, again. It haunts her, as it has every night for…how long has it been? Time has gotten away from her.

She rolls over on her back, staring at the root-canopy that forms this sizeable, yet well-concealed, den. It had been inhabited by a troll until recently; she had seen to its unceremonious eviction. Its pelt makes up the rough bed in which she was sleeping, while its decaying head rests on a boulder about five feet from the front entryway to the den. The presence and stench of it keeps away all intruders, including the nearby band of giants. They are only eight in number, so tending to their small herd of mammoths is of more importance than a dead troll. It is one less troll that will attempt to prey on the calves, and the smoke from their massive communal fire eliminates the stink…

Funny Friday Memes: 13 January 2017! (Re-blogged)

This Friday the 13th post was so good the first time around, it deserves a re-blog while I work on my current “Five on Friday” post!

😎

Random Ramblings; Myriad Musings

Hey, will you look at what day it is…it’s “Friday the 13th!” This is the first of only two months that have a 13 Friday during this year; October is the other month, this time around. Time for some snarky silliness and madcap memes about this supposedly unlucky day, I’d wager. I was inspired by the beautiful sight of the full moon last night; nothing wrong with some mild lunacy, no?

Michael Jordan is donating $7 million to build two medical facilities to serve at-risk and underserved communities in Charlotte. The Hornets owner’s donation will fund the Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Clinics, expected to open late 2020.

The facilities will provide affordable access to primary and preventive care ― including behavioral health, physical therapy, social work, oral health and family planning ― to those with little-to-no health care.  “Through my years of working with Novant Health, I have been impressed with their approach and their commitment to the community,” Jordan, who was raised in Wilmington and attended UNC-Chapel Hill, said in a press release. “It is my hope that these clinics will help provide a brighter and healthier future for the children and families they serve.”

Estee Portnoy, a spokeswoman for Jordan, told the Charlotte Observer that he was…

Saturday Screen-Shots: In-Game Fashions (Re-blogged)

Enjoy this re-blog of mine from January, which features some of the in-game fashions and costumes added to The Elder Scrolls Online since it launched in April of 2014.

A few more unique costumes have been acquired since this post was first published, so I will have some brand-new gear to show off before the year is over!

😎

I took a few screen-shots of some of the various costumes that have been added to my favourite MMO, The Elder Scrolls Online (TESO). These costumes are a bit of fun, and have the added bonus of your ability to ‘dye’ them any colour you wish, as long as it is a hue which has been ‘unlocked’ by specific achievements that you accomplish in-game. The more you earn, the more colours that you have to play with! The outfits are perfect for guild events and other role-playing activities, and sometimes it’s just fun to head to the battlefield in your finest gear, or look appropriately noble when you challenge some low-born, scurvy dog to a duel, LOL

The costumes, initially, were only available when you hit certain levels. Others are articles of clothing which you find in containers throughout the lands that you explore. With the addition of the Thieves’…

6 Years!!! (Re-blogged)

Happy Blog-o-versary to me! It has now been seven years since I began this humble little blog. In honour of this milestone, I’m re-blogging this post from last year, when I celebrated six years here on WordPress.

I’m not stopping anytime soon, either – sorry to burst the hateful little bubbles of my detractors, ROFLMAO!

Well, will you look at that! This blog has been up and running for 6 years, now…SIX!!! I had logged in to address two blog-awards that I was nominated for at the end of last month, and noticed the little icon that looks like a trophy in the notifications corner. I click on it, and see the lovely ‘Happy Anniversary’ notification – what a wonderful thing to see this morning!

You know what that means…time for some music and pictures that sum up my fiery, iron-willed essence! Enjoy…

John Legend and Jesse Williams are working on a documentary that will look at the 1968 Black Power salute seen around the world.

The documentary, With Drawn Arms, is executive produced by Williams and Legend, along with the Grammy and Oscar winning singer’s partners from his Get Lifted Film Co., Deadline reports.

NEW YORK — Major League Baseball has named its World Series Most Valuable Player Award after Willie Mays. The decision was announced Friday, the 63rd anniversary of Mays’ over-the-shoulder catch in deep center field at the Polo Grounds for the New York Giants against Cleveland’s Vic Wertz in Game 1 of the World Series.

The Giants went on to sweep the Indians. The Series MVP award was given out for the first time the following year, when it was won by Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher Johnny Podres.”I’d like to thank Commissioner Rob Manfred and his team at Major League Baseball for honoring me with this recognition,” Mays said in a statement. “Baseball has always taken care of me, and for that I am grateful. I think it’s just a wonderful thing to know that at 86 years of age, I…
