Taking Things With A Hearty Grain Of Salt Is A Good Thing

A lot of people hear about online polls and are quick to believe them, but faked online polls are a real thing, and people need to know that, if they don’t already.

I learned a long time ago to take many claims I read online with a hearty grain of salt.

Cool Find On Pluto

I read recently that the dwarf planet Pluto has, get this, ICE volcanoes. As a photographer, I would love to go on a cosmic photo shoot/tour if it were possible. Who knows what other surprises could still be waiting in the far reaches? I am pretty certain of at least this, I’d never be bored the rest of my life.

Notes On Conversations and Memory

Earlier, I came across an article where it was estimated that people speak about 7,000 words a day. That’d be a lot for anyone to remember.

To elaborate, if we do speak about 7,000 words a day, that comes out to around 2,555,000 words a year. I’ve heard some people claim they remember every conversation they’ve ever had.

I can say with the utmost confidence now that they actually don’t.

It would be a cool superpower to have though, if such were actually possible, wouldn’t it?

Pepper Peach Mixed Soft Drink

Hello Dear Ones,

I hope you all are having a great morning or evening, depending which part of the world you reside in. Everyone on the planet likes to enjoy a refreshing drink when they are thirsty, so I thought I’d share one with you.


Start with one small bottle or can of original flavor Dr. Pepper, your choice of caffeinated or not.

Don’t drink it immediately!

Pour it in a glass, then add a splash of sugar free Torani peach syrup and stir well.

Add ice or refrigerate if you would like it chilled.

As a final touch (optional) you may add a whipped cream. There are whipped cream toppings created with sugar substitutes if you’d rather those over regular.


I Hate Quote Mining So Much

Quote mining, people taking micro-sound bytes of statements out of context & running with them is something that’s always irked me immensely. Even worse are their connections who just accept uncritically whatever said people post. Quote mining can do a lot of damage, so don’t just believe bits & pieces of things, research!

Heart Failure & Flu Like Symptoms

I just came across some stunning information. This may be common knowledge to some, but I share about it for the rest. Evidently, heart failure can cause flu like symptoms. I am not trying to fear-monger, or have everyone & their mother panic-Googling on the subject.

I do advise that if you have flu like symptoms, you have yourself professionally evaluated in case it IS something more serious.
