I wonder why this decision was made but to avoid the economy shouting that would no doubt ensue from such a post I will keep my opinion to myself and say this..Devoraks bubble theory may not be far off...

Twitter: a new tool for terrorist.

Terrorist 'tweets'? US Army warns of Twitter dangers - Yahoo! News

Well a person can write death to America in 140 characters or less so i guess they could. Twitter has always been described as something you use for whatever you want so..yea i could see it being used for this even. I don't see it changing minds but if we figured out who they were we could follow them and find out what they were up to.

Researchers log keystrokes from afar with an antenna | InfoWorld | News | 2008-10-20 | By Jeremy Kirk, IDG News Service

Blogs obsolete?

TechBlog: Are blogs obsolete?

Interesting post from the techblog about a rant that recently went on about blogging. I agree with Silverman completely. Blogging is not about how big your audience is and its not about's about the content.

Pizza hut on facebook

Sometimes the whole internet for everything goes to far...and the funny thing area doesn't have the service available..all im saying is the phone is not dead and a person can still use it..or at least get a already made pizza for 5 dollars.

Blog action day-Poverty

It's that time of year again. Blog action day, the day where a lot of blogs come together and talk about one topic and the topic this year is poverty. There is all sorts of poverty in the world from your average home with little money to a whole country of poverty. In my little town of Williamsburg a new goodwill recently opened up. For those in the area that read my blog and want to help with local poverty I would say that this would be a good place to start. Instead of throwing away things you nolonger want donate them to a goodwill or some other place similar in your area. If you can't do that then I submit my usual solution to everything and its just one word. Pray. Kepping someone in your prayers can help more than you think. God can do wonders for poverty. The new goodwill in Williamsburg is right next door to Wal-mart if you want to know where it is. Keep the faith and as my mom says "Let God Live"

The pitfalls of a cashier.

As a cashier I have various things that I have to watch out for and it still boggles me as to what tries some very horrid cases..gets pulled on me. Anyone that deals with the public has their own, as the doctor once put it, universe of terrors to face. The main thing to think in your head is that you cannot please everyone. The only thing you need to please is god. If your rules that you must follow make someone angry then don't falter just to make someone happy. I take solace in knowing that as a child of god anyone that comes against me will not go without problems later on. Justice is out just have to know that it will happen when the time is right.
