The Long Facebook Fart

Six years ago, I titled this post Why I Went Back to Myspace and Began Tweeting, saved it as a draft, and forgot about it.  Well, guess what, I’m back to somewhat wrap up this piece and let it be great. Facebook is a place i rarely go.  Why?  Because I don’t want to scroll…

Missed Connection, UnClassified

Craigslist. Do I need say more? Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of Craigslist, the Internet God of the classifieds section from hell, on steroids. According to Wikepedia, as of August 9, 2012, over 700 “cities” in 70 countries have Craigslist sites. I’ve never been a fan.  Craigslist is the kind…

Meet The Internet

Bored?   The Internet is just a click away. The act of signing online has radically changed into basically always being online.  The internet is no longer closely associated with desktop computers.  My phone is a miniature computer hooked into the internet.  I’m not going to sit here and tell you about the science behind all…

My Very Worst Date

After much encouragement to try an online dating service, I decided to go the el cheapo route and signed up for Plenty of Fish. My inbox was immediately bombarded with messages, most consisting of one or two incoherent sentences. One gentleman caller stood out from the rest, and after communicating for a few months, I…

Love Means……

This, I believe. I took this picture while vacationing in Cabo San Lucas. Took out some color, left some alone, it’s basically enhanced … Pamela Anderson enhanced. The text “Love Means Going First Class” is my personal motto/mantra. When somebody really loves you, they’ll show it by treating you like royalty. Like only the best….

What I learned from my 2012 Wordpress Annual Report

The WordPress.com stats took it upon themselves to prepare a very helpful 2012 annual report for 79sparrows.  Somehow, the relation was made that  I’d pretty much blow the Cannes Film Festival out of the water.  Thank you WP!  Now THAT is a compliment.  There were a total of 22,000 views in 2012.   I’ve reviewed the…

On 79sparrows and Blogging

90,833 hits Note to self:  PUBLISH this tonight I hate blogging, but I love writing.  When I’m “blogging,” I feel a pressure to live up to what I ASSUME and IMAGINE is of the readers satisfaction and liking, and in turn that stresses me out.   (Fellow bloggers:  Does this ever happen to you?)  I decide not…

Do you like looking at pictures? I like taking pictures. Enjoy these flashes of my life.  And let me know what you like.  Capiche?

Liars and other Pet Peeves

I don’t anger easily.  So when I do, it is because someone did something really stupid.  There’s a little saying: Anger tells us when we have been betrayed-either by ourselves or by someone else.  Anger is our friend, like our gut.  Both send a strong signal; it’s up to us if and how we react….
