What A Real Patriot Looks Like …

September 22nd, 2017

Seen on Facebook

I just saw on Facebook that John McCain won’t back Graham-Cassidy bill, likely ending GOP health care push. That a good move by the USA Senator.  I don’t always agree with the senator but he has the courage to do what he feels is best for the citizens of this nation.

To me, Senator McCain is what a real patriot looks like..  And it wasn’t noticed by me that he was not wearing a flag pin on his lapel.

Things Have Consequences

My wife plants flowers which I water.  She’s so busy and I wonder how she ever finds the time to plant stuff in the first place.

Yesterday while watering flowers the grasshopper was sitting on a hibiscus leaf.  The only camera I had was the one on my phone.  This isn’t the first time I’ve captured something with that phone.  My refusal to purchase another pocket cameras has consequences.

The picture wasn’t too bad but I may need to buy a better phone.  It won’t be anything made by Apple Computer, Inc. either.  Google is getting on my nerves with their absolute control on Android phones.

Maybe within a years time someone will produce a phone which doesn’t come with bloated apps, and crapware which is almost impossible to remove and such.

This Ain’t Your Mama’s Stove

Photography by E.W. Faircloth

I had to take pictures of a home for sale.  Since it was relatively a small house I looked for things which might get the attention of certain prospective buyers.  Granted, it’s not great photography but it does show an electric stove.  The present owner said this is one of the things which sold her on the home.

Me, I prefer gas for cooking.  Yes, both and electric can boil water but once the water boils, gas is easier and faster to get it to simmer.

There are a few pluses I can think is going for electric stoves.  One, electricity doesn’t pollute the environment.  Two, the chances of an explosion is nil.   Three, cleaning is easier than gas.

Now back to my lame excuse the the picture not being “a piece” I can be proud of.  Well, I don’t make enough money shooting real estate photography to spend too much time on a shot.  At it it, I spend too much time on a job.

That’s my excuse and I’m sticking with it.

What Were They Thinking?

An acquaintance told me they had remodeled the local McDonald’s fast food restaurant.   So we decided to take the grandchildren there for a quick snack and a little play time.

They have indeed remodeled the store, and I’m not happy about it.   The play area is smaller with no area for toddlers as the old store.  But what really upset me was the new kiosk used to order food.

What were they thinking?

It  took us almost 15 minutes to order our meals.  The kiosk was about as intuitive as playing chess.  You have a choice of payment methods right on the kiosk.  However, if you decide to pay with cash, you must walk over and hand the money to a cashier.  Brilliant, simply f@%king brilliant.

My mother-in-law came up with an easy solution to this mindlessness, use the drive-through.

Brilliant, simply brilliant 🙂
