Rockhounds To Gather Oct. 4-6 at Graves Mountain for Rock, Swap & Dig | The Augusta Chronicle

I have lived in Augusta all of my life, well not yet. I can’t believe that I have never heard of Graves Mountain.

Deep Space Makes The Creepiest Sounds

You may have seen this new outer-space finding on the nightly news last week, but we have got it here for your own Analysis.

Turns Out Deep Space Makes The Creepiest Sound.

Science never seems to amaze me. The many questions that we humans have about life in general are mind boggling. One day, I pray that we humans will learn many of the “secrets of life” in the spiritual world.

Enjoy

The Rise Of The Machines

As I sit here, contemplating on tomorrow, I am watching CNBC’s special programming, which is highlighting the rise of machines. I have always been amazed by technology. Three things that have changed my life in  the last two years are:

  • Electronic Bill Pay
  • Streaming Music
  • Information Sharing

Most of us pay our bills on our computer nowadays. It sure is a great relief not to have to sit down and write those checks, lick those envelopes, and sponge those stamps! Tedious work, indeed!

Buying music these days is an option. One may subscribe to an online music store such as the king of pop, iTunes, or many many more online music stores for buying mp3′s or full CDs by using electronic downloads. Even Walmart has an online music store! Another option, if one just wants to listen and not buy, there exists more streaming music sites than I can keep up with. My fave in this category is Songza.Com. Check it out!

The information that we humans are able to share in an instant blows my mind. I feel like a visionary in this field because of my training in computer programming.  With sites like Twitter and Instagram, news flows around the world in a matter of seconds!

I have to admit again that I love the way that we humans can communicate with each other on multiple devices. I feel jailbroken now that I no longer get “stamp tongue”. The best part of this new sharing revolution is music and video, something we all love!

See Ya

Billy

Happy! Happy! Happy!

Sorry guys for not posting any awesome events or things going on in the CSRA lately, but due to a serious health matter, I have not been up to writing much. Please forgive me.

A litttle over a year ago I had surgery on my right leg to correct vasvular disease. Well after four surgeries (two in the same week) the surgical wound would not heal! I spent 6 months sleeping in my desk chair, for I could not lay flat because the blood needed gravity to reach my foot and calf. The pain was unbearable. I spent 19 sessions in a hyperbaric chamber to infuse my whole body with oxygen. Each session lasted two hours. On the final and 20th session, I chose that was enough.

The pain in my leg is the most painful ordeal that I have ever been through physically. Now I have a prostetic leg and it does the job, but your first leg is just that, like a new first guitar. It has a learning curve. I bust my butt many times.

Happy! Happy! Happy! I am. This little setback is not going to keep me down for long. I appreciate all my readers so bookmark this page at it’s domain name:

So be happy and look forward to a new day. One never knows what life has in store for them. Enjoy life and let the sun shine in your heart, then you too will be
HAPPY! HAPPY! HAPPY!

Till next time

Black Friday For Casual Dining

Today is dubbed “Black Friday for Casual Dining”.
Many restaurants across the nation are offering free or discounted lunches, dinners, and other specials.
I salute the idea because it is a way to give back to those who proudly served in the armed forces.
So, if you know a veteran, or you are a veteran, get out there… treat a vet to dinner and join the celebration.
The larger chains are offering some great specials, just search here your fave!

PS:Veterans Day restaurant business is the busiest of the year!
