So I haven’t posted in a while because so much has been going on with the holidays and family events. 2018 was an interesting year, but not a fantastic one. My daughter did get married and my son spent several months stationed in Japan, but we lost his best friend, a young 19 year old Marine with literally his whole life ahead of him. Unfortunately my friend lost his marriage, and it says a lot about his wife that she would initiate this during the holidays, when it is especially painful for the guy. He spent much of it with me and my family and he had some fun, but you could see it in his eyes and read his face – he is broken. I think we are all looking forward to this year ending and the new one beginning.

2019 will see the return of the podcast, which I haven’t done in a couple of months AND which was still technically in its testing phase after the last one, which was only the second one overall. I plan on sticking to the “every two week” schedule I had originally planned on going with until I decide whether or not I have enough material and time to do one a week. I also plan on getting back to my weekly game stream, hopefully hitting that a couple of times a week, once with Final Fantasy 14 and once for whatever game I feel like playing, since I stocked up on them over the holiday season. Ill post a schedule once I get established.

Amazon kicked me from the affiliate program for – get this – offensive posts on my Facebook page! Probably a million times less offensive than this page (they reviewed both pages) my FB page, unfortunately, hosts some shared posts from Hi-Point firearms, which, from what I can see, would be the only thing they could possibly find offensive! I don’t care to pursue trying to fix it, Amazon, Facebook – they all suck. Heck, I think even Minds, an alternative to FB, has been wrestling with its own censorship and banning issues, which is pretty sad because it was supposed to be a “free speech platform”. However, allowing porn and weed posts along with all the other standard “government sucks” and daily photography generates it own sets of problems.

I have other plans as well, which I might allude to in the podcast after the first of the year.

Thanks, everyone, for visiting my little corner of the internet. Like many of you I am no one of consequence, just a guy (or girl) with a couple of hobbies and a platform with which to vent or show off. You dont HAVE to visit, but I’m honored that you do!
