Inwardly summiting a spiritual Mt Everest

tcr! · Dec 29, 2019 at 5:04 pm

Audio (MP3): 20191229 - Inwardly summiting a spiritual Mt Everest

Poinsettia in the sun

Seeking equality, fairness, the greater good…that does something remarkable for me. It breaks my selfish bubble. It makes me a whole human being. It gives me freedom.

But wait, there’s more. So much more. Seeking balance and harmony for all…brings me out of my despair. It brings light to my darkness. It brings healing to my pain. It lifts me up and out of feeling down and blue, up to the level of okay I was looking for much of my life. And being okay inside and out is the remarkable place I was talking about earlier.

When I make life not all about my pleasure or my suffering, oh wow is it good. It’s elevation.

Like inwardly summiting a spiritual Mt Everest and bringing everyone else up top to share the view.

You probably already knew all of that but it took me almost a lifetime to figure out.

I need help with a huge pile of medical bills. You think if I made a snappy video that Blue Goose would help me out?

Peeps, I’m going to be speaking at the boathouse in about half an hour if you got nothing going on.

I know it’s Sunday and it’s early but it’s sunny nonetheless!

Santa Clara County FD unlimited data throttled by Verizon

tcr! · Aug 28, 2018 at 2:43 pm

Verizon throttling could trigger FTC investigation of deceptive practices

Verizon throttling could trigger FTC investigation of deceptive practices

Thirteen Democratic members of Congress on Friday asked the Federal Trade Commission to investigate Verizon’s recent throttling of the Santa Clara County Fire Department while it was fighting California’s largest-ever wildfire.

“Throttling directly violates core net neutrality principles,” the letter, led by US Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.), said. “In light of the repeal of net neutrality, we urge you to investigate whether Verizon’s practices were ‘unfair or deceptive’ pursuant to Section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act.” The letter was sent to FTC Chairman Joseph Simons.

So the Santa Clara County Fire Department had an “unlimited” data plan but Verizon throttled their service after they used 25GB. Throttled them while they were fighting fires. Fires that’ve left 14 dead so far.

Barnum’s Animals Crackers out of the cages

tcr! · Aug 21, 2018 at 8:24 am

Barnum's Animals Crackers behind bars

I’m working at home and have NPR in the background. They’re going on with the typical things that make our world headlines… Trump, sanctions, the EU, Russian hackers, Iran, blah blah blah.

I have a look at Google News to make sure nobody’s blown anybody else up since I last plugged into the Internet. I see that the animal crackers have finally been set free. Finally some news I can get excited about.

Animal crackers’ animals “freed” as boxes get new look

After more than a century behind bars, the beasts on boxes of animal crackers are roaming free.

Mondelez International, the parent company of Nabisco, has redesigned the packaging of its Barnum’s Animals crackers after relenting to pressure from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

PETA, which has been protesting the use of animals in circuses for more than 30 years, wrote a letter to Mondelez in the spring of 2016 calling for a redesign.

“Given the egregious cruelty inherent in circuses that use animals and the public’s swelling opposition to the exploitation of animals used for entertainment, we urge Nabisco to update its packaging in order to show animals who are free to roam in their natural habitats,” PETA said in its letter.

Barnum's Animals Crackers freed

PS- Neither picture is mine.

Heard recently, “if I go on a vegan diet, can I still eat animal crackers?”

I was vaguely confused all the way to the last line: “Canadian boxes already had a different design and aren’t affected.” 🀣

honk honk, fist bump

tcr! · May 2, 2018 at 8:30 am

Not long ago I was having lunch with some friends at The Evergreen Pub & Grill in St. Charles. We were sitting in the patio area, more or less enjoying the Spring weather.

Out on the street two beer trucks passed each other, headed in opposite directions. They both honked their horn in what sounded like a friendly wave or fist bump.

That’s sharing a common goal. Not selling more beer, but making the world a better place.

I can always be friendly. We’re all playing on the same team.

Fox News at 30% trust

tcr! · Apr 9, 2018 at 11:02 am

Fox News at 30 percent

Fox News accidentally displays graphic showing it is least trusted cable network

Fox News has inadvertently posted a graphic showing it trails other cable news networks in trustworthiness.

During a segment on Sunday on Media Buzz, host Howard Kurtz was discussing with the Republican pollster Frank Luntz a Monmouth University poll which asked respondents if the media regularly or occasionally reports fake news.

The graphic that came up on screen showed results from another question, about what cable news outlets respondents trusted more. Fox News was last at 30%, behind CNN and MSNBC, both regular targets of attacks by President Donald Trump.

Watch the YouTube: youtube.com/watch?v=z5G6un-uKVc

Be aware: it’s really not that great of a story when one watches the whole clip.
