Good Guest = Good Host

I’m sure that most of you out there have been invited to a party, gathering, or some other social function which takes place in the home of another. These differ from office parties or bar gatherings, as the participants are better-known acquaintances or close friends than are usually present in offices or bars.

When I’m invited somewhere, I like to bring a token of appreciation tailored to the host’s personal tastes. Food or drink of some sort is a fun thing. A gift card is a thoughtful thing as well, so the person can purchase what they wish, when they have the time.

When I have friends over, the only requirement is to be respectful of my home and everything in and around it. You don’t have to bring anything but yourself. An invitation means that you’re good people and can enjoy my hospitality.

That being said, if you show yourself to be a shitty guest, you won’t be invited back. I’ve learned that a shitty host tends to be a shitty guest in any given situation.

Shitty hosts make grand promises and talk about all the great things to expect at their party, but deliver nothing when you arrive. Instead, they expect you to entertain everyone else. They badmouth the guests who leave early, then bitch endlessly about how ungrateful people are.

These are some of the reasons why I changed my mind about wanting to meet any bloggers IRL. When I hit the road again, have no worries. I sure as hell won’t be stopping by.

Some people aren’t worth the time.

Tuesday Tunes & Soothing Scenery…13 June 2017

To counter the ugliness that is rampant here in the USA, around the world, and everywhere on the Interwebs, I offer up some soothing scenery of beautiful people and beautiful places, along with some relaxing music. Enjoy…

😎

Just A “Quickie,” LOL!

I just got back from a small trip to visit family and attend a couple of events, so I’ll catch up on my followed blogs over the next couple of days. I have a buttload of pictures to sort through and will get caught up on my posts soon; I thought that some music would suffice for the time being. Enjoy these three songs which might seem unrelated on the surface, but are actually connected. The connection is only obscure if you overthink it and don’t bother asking the obvious question, LMAO!

I shall return…

Random Saturday Scenery…18 March 2017

I felt like revisiting some photographs that I took whilst travelling in 2010. It’s been a while since I posted photos that I took myself, so this is as good a day to do it as any other, no? Pleasant, serene, and / or soothing scenery always makes for some nice viewing, IMHO.

Travel Photographs: Cemeteries

I’m sorting through my travel photographs, getting them organized into some semblance of chronological order, and came across some pictures I took of various tombstones in different cemeteries. As a child, I would go to the library and check out books, then ride my bicycle to the goat farm, or to the main cemetery – there were three in all – and sit behind one of the biggest tombstones to read. For me, it was a place to be around people who weren’t bothered by my presence, and who wouldn’t bother me.

Cemeteries, to me, are peaceful and serene places. I also think that it would be nicer if trees were planted in memory of people. Still, the artwork of tombstones, and the tales they tell, are fascinating.

Monday Scenery…

Recycling an old post, because it’s a good one! Photographs taken by yours truly…enjoy. Find the hidden link, and you’ll be treated to a few more!

Eyrie Of An Aries

I still have nothing, so enjoy these pictures. They are from August of 2010, heading to Sturgis, South Dakota. Apologies that they aren’t in any particular order.

Friday Milestone…100 Followers!!!

I am ecstatic, elated, humbled and honoured! After grinding in my MMORPG from 2:30 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. PDT (-8 GMT) and taking a much-needed nap after completing an in-game campaign, I woke up to this wonderful notification: 100 WordPress followers…wow!

I’m speechless, LOL – I didn’t think I would reach 100 followers before the end of the year, especially since I sometimes seem to lose as many followers as I gain! There is at least one person who has been here from day one…I STILL SEE YOU, HERNIE!!! For now, I’ll simply post five in-game screenshots from the past 24 hours:

…also, here are five great songs to start the weekend off right – enjoy!
