The Internet in 2018 – My Thoughts

Privacy and the amount of information companies such as Facebook and Google have on their users has been brought to the forefront with the Cambridge Analytica debacle.  This has been a catalyst for me to reevaluate how I use the internet and where I want to go from here.

Journal Entry – Easter Sunday 2018

It is Easter Sunday 2018 @ 5:23 PM.

Yesterday I did the kids and adults karate classes and made it through just fine.  Hyphen (sp?) gave me a nice back kick to the gut and although it didn’t knock the wind out of me like Yoshi’s a few weeks ago it did knock me back.  I made it through the classes just fine even though I had taken a couple of weeks off.

Journal Entry – 3.31.2018

It is 6:25 AM on Saturday, March 31st.

We’ve gotten some very nice weather on the coast these past two days with temperatures reaching into the 70s.  This used to be rare but seems to happen with more frequency these past couple of years.  The climate is changing and it is too bad that many in the population of the USA are not smart enough to listen to actual scientists.

Journal Entry – 3.29.2018

It is 8:27 AM on Thursday March 29th.  We’re getting unusually warm weather which makes it feel like spring.  Yes, it is spring but the weather doesn’t change too much year around here in the Bay like it does in Ohio.  You don’t get that feeling of euphoria on a really nice day like you do after a harsh winter in Ohio.  But it is nice when the weather warms up past the usual 60 degrees here on the coast.  The only problem is that on the weekends especially everyone descends on the coast which snarls traffic on Highway 1.  So it takes a long time, at least a 30 minute delay if you plan on leaving the house.

Jamaica – Montego Bay – 2018

We took a trip to Montego Bay, Jamaica on the 8th of this month.  I won ‘Best in Class’ again at work and although we now have to pay for our ‘+1’ I decided it was worth a quick getaway.

It was more difficult this time to find interesting things to do.  Yes, boozing at the swim up bar at the resort is always fun but if I’m going to travel to another country I certainly want to learn about its history and visit the historical sights.  There isn’t too much to see in Montego Bay since at emancipation the former slaves burned most of the history down.  I had already visited the Great House at Rose Hall and I really had to research for other things to do.
