International Games

August 8, 2016 at 2:31 pmCategory:Good Things | My Life | The Web

I bet you thought this post was going to be about the World Olympics, didn’t you? LOL After all, the games will be on TV every day and every night for the next week. And I love watching them, too!

But, no, this is not about the Olympics. It is about a game of Spades that I just played on one of the Facebook apps. There are about a dozen different spades game apps on Facebook. All of them are free, too. My favorite one is called Spades Plus.

So today I need a short break and decided to play a couple of quick games. On the Facebook apps you play short, fast games. Some of them are only 1 or 2 hands. So I clicked on a 200 point game and ended up at a table with some fascinating people. Denis was playing from his hone in Germany. G3 was playing from India and my partner, Mercedes, was in Saudi Arabia. They were all nice, friendly people and very good players.

My partner and I won the first game and we all agreed to a rematch. The other team won the second game, so we decided to play one more and break the tie. Mercedes was brave and bid a risky nil and when we made that, we won the last game! Woot!

That was such a nice mental health break, and the exhilaration of winning made it so much easier to get back on task with a smile and a good attitude.

Love Amazon Except for Clothes

If you want to buy music, movies, books or any electronics, you should always check out Amazon for the best prices. In a lot of cases, Amazon carries stuff that you cannot even find locally. But their clothing selections are awful and way too expensive. I would have to be desperate to buy clothing from Amazon. As long as I can still get to the malls around here, I’ll never buy clothes online.

Funny but True

In this digital age, people are taking great liberties with their photos. first of all, there is Photoshop, which lets you edit, enhance, fix or whatever you want to call it, any photo. And somehow the photo that people use on the profiles always look great. Compare that profile photo to their drivers license photo and you can end up with a totally different photo. And then, if you have the chance to actually meet them, face to face, what you see in real life can be another look altogether.

Make it Harder?

Why would WordPress make us all upgrade to a new version and change everything around? The WordPress that I have used for years is suddenly different and I don’t like it one bit. I think they made a lot of changes just so someone could smugly say that they did something. I can understand the security fixes, but changing the dashboard and making it harder for me is frustrating.

How are my music picks?

As you can see i went on a music video add spree here of some of my favorite songs of all time and I wonder what you think. I think they are awesome for two reasons One they are my favorite music videos. Two i can log online anytime to my blog and listen to them over and over again without sucking down to much of my blogs bandwidth because they are embedded from yahoo music videos, pretty cool huh?

Now if I could just do the same with my favorite movie collections here on my blog i would be in geek heaven I am sure. Anyways more music videos and television shows and movies are coming but for a couple of posts I wanted to interact with my readers and viewers a little bit more.
