What Is a Good Title?

That is what I asked myself as I sit here with my cup of Joe. After yesterday’s event dealing with Bullshit from Microsoft trying to force feed me their new OS. When I thought I had it, all unchecked, they rechecked those updates in the background even though I had it set to ask me to install or decline, I eventually had to set it to “Never Update”  That appears to have solved the problem in my case. Enough of the carried over morning rant.

I see I have several comment to respond to, I got to thinking which is what I do most of my time, like George Carlin once said, “ I got this real moron thing I do, it’s called thinking!” I do this a lot. So today, I am going to respond to those comments within this post. One, I will be able to respond to all comment in one shot, two as I cross my fingers hopefully, someone will click on your link, pay your Blog a visit and decide to become a reader. Let’s get started.

Danny just paid me a visit and wished me a belated birthday, Thank you, Danny. Danny has been posting some rather interesting posts about Critical thinking one of them being
Developing Informed Opinions and Critical Thinking This was interesting for the simple fact that Critical Thinking is crucial these days. What exactly is Critical Thinking?

Critical thinking is the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication, as a guide to belief and action. In its exemplary form, it is based on universal intellectual values that transcend subject matter divisions: clarity, accuracy, precision, consistency, relevance, sound evidence, good reasons, depth, breadth, and fairness.

Wendy from http://wendysharesathought.com/ has an interesting Blog herself, Wendy’s comment to me, “I guess you’re more of a CNN guy? Is it going to be Hilary or Bernie? Who’s money do you want them to confiscate first? They seemed pretty intent on Taxing during the debate. What “freebie” do you have your eye on? They are very generous with the wealth of a nation 18 billion dollars in debt. I wonder where it will all come from? Politics, it’s so….indescribable.”

No, I am not a CNN person although I do catch it at times like O’Rilley, Megan Kelly MSNBC with Chris Hayes and Rachel Maddow. As you can see, I watch a variety of bull. I will say I used to watch Megan Kelly until she brought her husband on her show so that they could plug his book to garner personal wealth, that to me is a Conflict of Interest. “A term used to describe the situation in which a public official or fiduciary who, contrary to the obligation and absolute duty to act for the benefit of the public or a designated individual, exploits the relationship for personal benefit, typically pecuniary.” Although, during the first Republican debate, I do give her props for asking tough needed questions and instead of real answers we got name calling to insulting hair styles like grade schoolers do. You are correct Wendy, “Politics, it’s so….indescribable.” If I do vote so that they can see their popularity votes increase then I have a choice of voting for the Devil or the Devil’s relations. After all the Electorial votes are the ones that really matter. Does my vote count? Understanding the electoral college

I like to thank Sherrie Miranda for reblogging one of my poems’ Take My Hand. Here are the kind words she left behind for me to read, “Michael and I only met (through our blogs) a short time ago, but he has impressed me greatly in that time. This poem is gorgeous, especially for us “women of a certain age,” who feel like we have lost that special something.
This helps me understand why my husband loves me so much.
Michael, you are a true feminists! And I don’t bestow that title lightly!
And your wife … mate … or significant other is a very lucky lady.
Peace & blessings to you both!
Sherrie”

I don’t know about a true feminist though I try to embrace it.

wallacecasshonestme363Joe HupprenxkyokoThe Twentysomething Social RecluseLaura Lee Bonde I thank you for the comments you left pertaining to Windows 10, Wallace, I did find out that Windows 7 users will experience nothing but trouble if one does upgrade to Windows 10, Windows 8.1 is an easy transition from what I read on various articles.

Renxyoko had a very nasty experience with her system, “OH MY GOSH ! It happened again to me last night ! ! I called Norton to fix it for me. I had to ask if I needed to pay, and thank goodness, it was free ! ! Thy got to fix it. I had to use another computer to contact them because the one I was using wouldn’t start, and kept teling me to re-start, again, again, and again. It started when I was about to log off…. and my options was update to Windows 10first before logging off……” I am glad you were able to get your system up and running again.

“So, I went in to change my settings in updates from automatic to I have to approve them. I didn’t do anything else because I couldn’t figure it out.
When I came back to my computer, my web browser wouldn’t work. I went back into the update stuff, found what I needed to delete, and it forced a restart.
Now, my computer’s in this stuck-restarting mode. I think I confused it. 😊”        I hope you were able to get your system back to normal.
“I have to update my computer – I saw the KB3035583 update (which is the update that allows me to get Windows 10) and have unchecked that box!
Thanks for the heads-up as well…. am loving my Windows 8.1 so I am in no hurry to update to Windows 10”  You are very welcome for the heads up Joe.

“First. It’s completely okay to make time for silly things. The world is full of really scary stuff, so it’s perfectly acceptable to take a break from reality every now and then. Second. I probably would have peed my pants if this had happened to me! Really funny!”
Kim thank you for your comment, I do agree that our little world that we live on as it spins around and around is filled with negativity, violence, fear of letting our kids go to school or a movie, careless drivers and pedestrians that rather look at their smartphone than the street and other cars. We do need to take a small amount of time to find humor, provide kindness to another and a little scare now and then is ok. FYI we not only have Halloween but along with April Foll’s day we also have May 11th which is Feynman’s Day, a great scientist he was.
I will leave with some wise words of the late George Carlin a three minute 12 second video. There is foul language!
