Imagine yourself falling into cold waters only to be immediately surrounded by two circling dolphins forming a circle of protection. The old sailors’ tale of a shark being in the water whenever dolphins perform this action most clearly rang through my head.

My new found sea buddies flanked me as we made the 100m swim back to the beach. They only abandoned me once in knee deep water only to return from whence they came. The Great White periodically hunts these very same waters right up to the point where the waves break upon the sands to stalk prey. This was the only shark that could have been in these waters at that temperature and time of year. Why does a dolphin protect another mammal from danger?

It was a weird experience for me on so many levels. I will never view a dolphin in the same light.

Civility is Dead

I’ve been around for more than a half century. Never, have I seen such levels of perfidy and ungracious behaviour in my entire life. It happens on the Internet, in real life, and in business. Almost everyone is either trying to outright fleece others or else forcing their will upon others. Honor is now nearly extinct.

We have never been perfect nor will any of us ever be. Yet, there are ones who gleefully take pride in making mountains out of mole hills . Unable to see the glaring imperfections that lie within themselves, they lash out at anyone who even meekly challenges their worldview. Snowflakes are encouraged, created, and flourish under this environment. Your inability to be objective will one day be your undoing. The World does not rotate around your ass.

Our political orientations do not matter. I’ve witnessed the death of civility on all sides of the political spectrum. Frankly, I am growing weary of all of the vitriol and drama. I refuse to accept it any more and will do my part to stop it. Learn to spread love not hatred.

Google is a violation of anti trust laws

Why is Google allowed to suspend Norton Antivirus in favor of Google app without the operators consent? Leaving the operator “unprotected” if they deny the prompt mandated by google in google chrome?

My way or the highway without seat-belts and air-bags has become Google’s motto!

To add insult to injury Google blocks “import passwords and settings making manual entries of all passwords and bookmarks a must if one decides to abandon the Fascist and criminal enterprise AKA GOOGLE Inc…
