A look back at some things I saw online this week.
First of all, though, several of my many Google searches:
- when to use roundup — How soon before rain, at what temperature, when in the year should I apply it? I found out straight white vinegar supposedly works just as well! I’m anxious to give it a try.
- benefits of chamomile tea — It’s surely good for something besides making a body sleepy… Like, will it make the little spider veins in my ankles go away? Will it clear up any other blemishes? (Actually, that last one isn’t a search-trigger for me at all.)
- characteristics of a clique — Over the last five years, I’ve heard of certain somebodies feeling ostracized or something. Not by me, you understand. Come to think of it, though, I suspect I’ve made some people feel excluded or overlooked…and I didn’t mean to! Problem is, neither did I mean not to. How could I be that insensitive when I know too well what it’s like to be (or at least feel) left out and uninvited!
- omar fermin montenegro — I wanted to know if he’s still on the Most Wanted list of the Los Angeles Police Department. He is. I thought he wouldn’t be by now. Detective McKnight, wasn’t that settled in Nicaragua? Apparently not. I must have misunderstood the missionary… shrug
The Obama Event Registry — Apparently some hacker didn’t work his mayhem on the President’s blog (or whatever it is). In some ways, that would have been a better explanation for this. Oh well. Hey! Maybe I should set up an event registry for Christian Aid Ministries. Or for my own Web Events.
A Disastrous Wedding Story — It does have its nice moments, though!
President Reagan Waived Executive Privilege For His Own Gun-Running Operation — I thought of Iran-Contra right away when I heard President Obama invoked executive privilege against Congress in its probe of the “Fast and Furious” thing.
Probation Officer Accepts Facebook Challenge…and Wins — If the challenger would have read this blog regularly, he’d have known to be careful about postings to social media.
Citizen Traffic Officers in Oregon — Oregon is the only state in the Union that allows citizens to write DIY traffic tickets. And to think I’ve never issued a ticket, despite ample opportunities to do so. Then again, nobody has issued one against me, so there you are.
Young Italian Mother Makes a Choice…and Dies — What a touching story! I hope she got her wish to spend eternity where her two other children are.
Mexico Drug War Triumph Turns Sour — They thought they had the son of El Chapo Guzmán. Alas (and allegedly), it turns out they snagged a used car salesman instead. (Color me fishy. I mean, my perspective on this. Something rings rather suspicious to me.)
How About Some Free Digital Sounds? — Just watch your step there.
Christian Angel Capital Network — Maybe I should try this route instead of a Roth Event Registry…
The Slow Web — Most of my years online have been slow. I finally got DSL in late September 2010. (This is about something different, though.)
And that’s it for Saturday Version 26.12 — thanks for your rapt attention! It’s what keeps bloggers blogging.
