Recently...What Came Before The Rapture

According to my horoscope, the stars are favorable to me. And those that aren't, I'm sending the Klingons after 'em. Q'pla!

I laugh in the face of adversity! ...then she slapped me.

We're about to revamp a nonprofit's website, so I appreciated seeing this today via BlogAid. Consider watching the original video (linked in this note). Even somebody who is 26 prefers larger fonts (14 pt or 16 pt) and other design elements to improve readability on websites. [see more here]

‎"Your phone will be your wallet," says Google... Umm... Not so sure over here!! What about you?

Carmie Gimalay Esguerra  Integrity doesn't mean you are right all the time,but rather, man enough to admit when you aren't.
Rodney Rivera I may not always be right. But I'm never wrong.

Fox cancellations bewildering. Fox still ranks higher than NBC!

They cancel a great show like Chaos and FX comes up with Wilfred. What is our world turning into?                                                                             Tuesday at 12:09am

Claire Wagner  I assume you all heard that the Rapture has been rescheduled to October. I would like to make a joke, but I will refrain.                                                         Tuesday at 11:43am

Rodney Rivera The Rapture came to pass. It happened while we slept. We, left here on Earth, are waiting for the actual Judgement Day on October 11. This is the Tribulation period.

Networking and Pyramid schemes…what is the difference?
Part of an interview “How many friends do you have on FaceBook?” It IS the subtle way of saying ‘how many friends can you convert into customers?’ Entrepreneurs have been said to have made thousands by being an agent that sells anything fro...m bottled pomegranate formula to life-time memberships for legal aid. Making sales as well as searching for potential recruits. The days of ‘door-to-door’ are going to the viral ‘post to all friends if you Like it’ technique.  Monday at 11:04pm

Has anyone "liked" any pages (especially from major brands) that don't allow comments? Looks like Facebook frowns on those that don't like two-way communication. Facebook Requiring Pages To Enable User Comments

American Idol: Where Are They Now?  Actually country singers are more flexible than any other type. They can do rock or pop. Any others tend to stay in their own genre. And that is what AI was all about. Can you put your style into any song we give you? Look at Underwood.  May 20 at 11:05am

Wow! No American Idol posts! I guess everyone jumped ship.   May 19 at 11:46pm
Finally something useful in the news! CDC EPR | Social Media | Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse - Blog                                                                                         May 19 at 11:46pm                                                  Rodney Rivera I thought this was a hoax. It turns out that it is the CDC's humorous way of pointing out the need for preparedness for ANY emergency.          May 20 at 10:14am

Tip calculator= Whaterver you paid for tax.
Why tip someone who gets paid like every other worker? Why is gratuity automatically added to your bill on parties? Why does an hour lunch or even a happy hour cost more than an hour of work?      
James Jimbo Denny Most wait staff make around $4 an hour and depend on tips to make a living.   Rodney Rivera I really do understand that, so the system has to change. I feel the kitchen staff deserve something too, because it's them I sometimes wish to congratulate for a great meal. As for managers, well I can't relate to them.                                               May 19 at 2:06am

Miracles are real. But remember "For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, [which] go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty." The real miracle here was that he had the heart attack to change his faith, not that he 'came back.'                                                                                     May 17 at 2:35am
A lot of us post political messages on Facebook. I know that's different than advertising, but what do you think of this point of view?    May 16 at 5:54pm
I found this on FB. It reminded me that churches are also like people, seeking to spread their Word out to as many people as possible; to get as many Likes as possible.

Quote got your tongue? This tool goes where your memory can't, or won't.    May 13 at 3:58pm                Rodney Rivera This an explanation of one activity I have on FB; someone posts a quote. I post a quote that either opposes it or makes humor of it. The ones I invent I put in 'half quotation marks.'                  Another activity is, someone says a word that reminds me ...of a phrase in a song. I search for it in YouTube. Then I post it. [note: contrary to popular belief, I have never seen any mental care professional, so I never played word association games] Sometimes I hear part of a song and can't quite remember it, but can't get it out of my head. Difficult are the ones that have no words. Manama was one such. I wiki'd that one!                There is a flaw in my logic sometimes though. For example, I thought Bonnie Tyler's song was tited "Turn Around." [Total Eclipse Of The Heart]            Some people like Yahoo Answers and Bing. Personally, I don't.

‎'Living apart' is just another status to add. Just like 'marraige is worth the paper you wipe each others' ass with.' In their case it is just a matter of political and professional differences, as well as a completely different set of backgrounds.

Girl-watching in Berkeley. Because in Oakland it is...illegal.                          May 5 at 10:24pm

What does $ 4 get me? To and from anywhere in Oakland Berkeley area by AC Transit [which I did today] or using nearly a gallon of gas [parking not included]. A 'good' burger or coffee, a box of cereal or a gallon of milk for it, 20 oz beer at a sit-down or 16 percent gratuity for $25.
Most of these were $ 1 in the early 1970s!

Item: Cinco de Mayo is NOT Mexican Independence Day. In some regions in Mexico and throughout the US, it is a celebration of pride and democracy. So politely, Filipinos, Nicarqaguans, South Americans, and the Spanish will not be amused if you greet them "Viva le mejico"

-------------------------------- and finally, a movie review...
  Thor (2011)

Clips and my favorite memorable quotes…SPOILERS...

 “You are unworthy of your title, and I'll take from you your power! In the name of my father, and his father before him, I cast you out!“ Odin

 “What! He was freaking me out!” Darcy

 “He said it was, Thor?” Jane Foster

“This drink... I like it! More!” Thor tasting coffee for the first time. Smashes empty cup to the floor.

"This is going on FaceBook. Smile!” Darcy :)   I like her!

Stan Lee does make a short cameo in the film. He is the truck driver whose flat bed is ripped off at the location of where Thor's hammer lands on Earth.

 “You’re big. Thor’s bigger.”
“You better call it Coulson, cause I'm starting to root for this guy.”…“Do you want me to take him 
down or would you rather send in more guys for him to beat up?” Clint Barton/Hawkeye

“We've got Xena, Jackie Chan, and Robin Hood.”

The facial expression of Lady Sif seeing Thor through the glass door looked like Mrs Conehead haha!

 "Is that one of Stark's?" to which he replies, "I dunno. That guy never tells me anything." “Hello. You are in possession of unregistered weapons technology. Identify yourself.” Shield Agent-in Charge

At the end of the credits, Selvig meets with Nick Fury in a hidden location. Fury shows him the Tesseract/Cosmic Cube that Red Skull (Hugo Weaving) is searching for in Captain America: The First Avenger set in WWII (out this Summer) and says it represents power. Fury compliments Selvig's intelligence and asks him to help study the Cube. As the view pans to a nearby mirror, Loki is shown in the reflection, observing the cube; when Fury says the Cube can be an unlimited source of power, Loki says, "Well, I guess that's worth a look." Selvig then says the same to Fury.
Of course Loki survives! His manipulations is what brings the Avengers together.
