Internet Addiction (?)

I’ve been hearing a lot of talk that we are addicted to the internet today. Well this is promoted by television wanting people to believe that they are not of the norm in society. That turning to the internet for news and other types of programming is wrong and we are addicted like addicted to drugs. Sorry folks in TV land we are not addicted to the internet, we are turning to the internet because this is where we prefer to turn to for our news (as an example). We no longer wait until 6pm for the evening news to tell us what’s happening in the world or locally. We turn to the internet like Microsoft’s portal “MSN.” We check out the news that I want to watch and know more about not what you think we should know and learn about. Some of the “relics” in society are fighting change and the old man in them that resists change is upset and calls this an addiction. I wonder how much money they are paying to promote internet usage as an addiction. To somehow make people feel bad about themselves because they turn to the internet. How many out here actually watch the evening news. I don't and haven’t for years now. Ya know some nights I just don't want to know who shot who. I prefer to look up positive things that make me glad to be alive and laugh. Get over it old man, the internet is here to stay and your cash is not going to change that, we enjoy it too much. Hay check out “MSN,” every day they run a video they found on YouTube, front page. Something that a regular person put together and published and is now parts of a million homes, if that isn’t cool then I don’t know what cool is. Change your ways old man or more over.

Make Music Plymouth

I worked yesterday at the Plymouth, NH Music Festival called “Make Music Plymouth”. Over 50 bands set up and jammed on the street corners in down town Plymouth NH, real cool. It wasn’t your standard acoustic sets. There were live, wired for sound, guitars and complete drum sets. Most downtown affairs consist of acoustic sets (boring), not here, electric guitars dominated the event. This is going to be an annual event so stay tuned. It’s easy to remember the date because it’s the first day of summer. The best part was the whole thing is free.

Cumberland Farms Gas

Cumberland Farms is offering a great deal for customer loyalty on their gas but wait, I am going to wait until lighting strikes. The theory is that lighting wont strike in the same spot twice and generally is a good bet. Cumberland Farms is begging for Hackers with a Capital H to come in and “lift” all the bank accounts from its patrons. Look it, Cumberland Farms is on to something with regard to lowering its gas price by 10 cents if it is allowed to link to your bank account. As of this writing they have not been Hacked but rest assured they will be. I am a big fan of 10 cents off of gas and have been tempted to turn over my banking information for a reduction in fuel cost. I refuse to until they are Hacked. Once they are Hacked then I know they will spend some money on security, computer security. Right now nobody is going to tell me that Cumberland Farms is spending large cash amounts to save your banking info. This is where Hackers love to Hack into. By the way Hackers are on my top ten things to fear list. They are capable of causing years of lingering harm. I go to Cumberland Farms almost daily for their buck coffee. One dollar for coffee is a good price and I can get two for the price of one as compared to Dunkin Donuts, from what I here is up to 2 and ½ dollars per cup. I don't know the neighborhood you’re living in but in mine, that’s a steep price. Especially when down the street its half the price. Just thought I would give you my views on the gas savings. Me, I am waiting for that large lightning bolt to hit then I will think about it.
