Road Apples, #95

Burger King Video...This video made the rounds this week.  All I will say is this:  My children, being fairly well adjusted, well behaved and smart, will most likely end up ruling the world if this is what the competition is really all about.

Newt Gingrich...Newt decides to be against intervention in Libya, but only after the President actually intervenes.  Before the President acted Newt was actually for intervention.  Reference HERE.  I guess the world was a different place...on March 8...2011.  I enjoy Newt's more intellectual approach to some issues, especially when it comes to economic empowerment, but man the guy can pander with the best of them.  Maybe Newt had a dose of some "tea" between the 8th and now. 

Free Cell Phone Service...I saw an advertisement for free cell phone service in the newspaper the other day, so I did a quick Google search (results HERE).  Now I really don't want to learn any more about this, but as someone who pays for cell phone service for three young women, I can tell you that cell phone service is actually a costly proposition.  Why, in this day and age of tight budgets, is anyone getting something like this for free?  Cell phone service is a privilege, not a right.  There are parts of our society that seem to think that everything is a right these days.

LinkedIn & Social Media...I recently received a LinkedIn connection request from someone who is basically a complete stranger.  Never heard of the guy.  I've received things like that from Facebook as well, and my tendency is to just ignore the request.  But the bigger question is this:  why?  Why say that someone is a professional colleague when you don't really know the individual?  How can you call someone a "friend" when you've never met, never spoken to, never even heard of before?


JeanLuc...is my cat, and he was neutered yesterday.  Poor guy, and while I feel bad for him, the fact is that I don't want a cat running around urinating on things, and I want him to be just an indoor cat, so the neutering is the right thing to do.  What was telling was that I actually missed the little guy night before last.  It was actually odd to not have him ambushing me from behind a bed-skirt in the morning.  Ah, the simple joys in life...

Speaking of Simple Joys...I am going to hear Marvin Hamlisch perform with the NEPA Philharmonic on Saturday. A splendid time is guaranteed for one and all.  Now if it could only manage to get into the 50's again.
