Hi U Guise.

Krinny, The Krinster, +Korinne M Jackman  reminded me it's #webcamwednesday   and I'm at work going over resumes of the last three people I interviewed today, and getting ready to work late to take care of some government mandated PQRS requirements to avoid a Medicare Reimbursement Penalty.  THRILLING, #amirite  ? ;)

Tell us what you're doing and show us your #webcamwednesday   face!

I bartended throughout college from 1980-84 at a big neon blue building which housed both a restaurant and a Disco. E.L. Krackers was where the kids at E.I.U., and quite a few 'townies' would go to get their groove on back in the day.  It was located in the same parking lot as the Original Jimmy John's where Jimmy John Liautaud opened up shop in 1983. 
This was more often than not the last song played after last call for alcohol, just before when we turned up the lights and turned off the music and closed up at 2:00 a.m.
Then, after work, we'd go to a nearby open all night greasy spoon and eat Biscuits and Gravy (which we lovingly referred to as 'biscuits & paste')...
Damn, Charleston...sometimes I miss you.

Nearest Distant Shore

Back in 1992 I heard a song that had a profound effect on me. It helped to show me exactly where I was and it reminded me that there was something I could do about a situation that was quite literally killing me.
I remember being in the car with my mother a few days afterward and asking her to listen to this song with me. I hoped she would hear the specific words that were speaking to me and that she would understand I was ready to make a major, life altering, positive change. I wanted it to be one of those moments where she would get me.
But she didn't. She didn't seem to understand what I was trying to tell her, using the lyrics in a song. In fact, she let me know about her 'disappointment' in my life choices, once again..but that's another story.

Nearest Distant Shore

Back in 1992 I heard a song that had a profound effect on me. It helped to show me exactly where I was and it reminded me that there was something I could do about a situation that was quite literally killing me.
I remember being in the car with my mother a few days afterward and asking her to listen to this song with me. I hoped she would hear the specific words that were speaking to me and that she would understand I was ready to make a major, life altering, positive change. I wanted it to be one of those moments where she would get me.
But she didn't. She didn't seem to understand what I was trying to tell her, using the lyrics in a song. In fact, she let me know about her 'disappointment' in my life choices, once again..but that's another story.
So, I put my big girl panties on and I showed my mother, my little girl, and the rest of my little world what I could do by my actions.
Actions do speak louder than words.
But the spoken, written and sung word can often spur someone to action, and for that I'm forever grateful for country music singer Trisha Yearwood's words, her music, her delivery, and her impeccable timing.

Swim to the nearest distant shore
There's only so much a heart can endure
You gave it your best, forgive yourself
You can't hold on anymore
It's not as far as it might seem
Now it's time to let go of old dreams
Every heart for itself
Swim to the nearest distant shore___

I used to like to walk the straight and narrow line
I used to think that everything was fine
Sometimes I'd like to sit and gaze for
days through sleepless dreams
All alone and trapped in time
All alone and trapped in time

I wonder what tomorrow has in mind for me
Or am I even in it's mind at all
Perhaps I'll get a chance to look ahead and see
Soon as I find myself a crystal ball
Soon as I find myself a crystal ball

Tell me, tell me where I'm going
I don't know where I've been
Tell me, tell me, won't you tell me
And then tell me again
My heart is breaking, my body's aching
And I don't know where to go
Tell me, tell me, won't you tell me
I've just got to know

Back in the olden days before I started spending time on social media this was a daily addiction. I honestly can't recall the last time I sat down and tackled and then completed one of these, until today.

20 years ago when I was an operating room nurse, an anesthesiologist friend and I would race each other every morning to see who could complete the daily jumble first.
He was good ...but I learned some tricks from him, like arranging the letters in a circle in order to visually find the scrambled word faster, and soon I was winning more often than not.

My daddy used to amaze me with the speed and accuracy with which he could complete the most difficult crossword puzzles. I always admired his brain, and I think largely due to his love of reading and his love of words, his vocabulary was extensive.

If people bring so much courage to the world the world has to kill them to break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places.
But those that will not break, it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially.
-Ernest Hemingway, an excerpt from The Martyrdom of Martin Luther King Jr.

Rattle that Lock

After the losses of two valued, very young 69 year olds this past week, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't the least bit worried about the 69 year old David Gilmour... we've got family tickets to see him April...and by that time, he'll have turned 70.

Damn, I'm getting old.

This

As humans we hold on to so many things, so much of which is negativity. It mutes the colors of life and makes the music out of tune. Learn to let go, learn to let be, and learn to trust what is and what is not.

"My favorite part of social is providing value, getting to know people and having interesting conversations."

Google+ Tips Alert: Here are 5 G+ trends you need to know about immediately:

➊ Behind the scenes, Google+ has been making changes to its algorithm.
To get engagement back up and put the "social back into social," your best best is to find a niche Google Community that really resonates with you, and then mostly use that (for example, I've launched Over Fifty and Fit that anyone is welcomed to join: https://goo.gl/pUOJM9 ).
➋ G+ is no longer emphasizing people but rather, it's focusing on topics. This is why it's now harder to find people's photos, their About Me section, their photos, etc.
➌ G+ has changed how it prioritizes. In search, often Communities will come first, then after that comes Collections, and then (almost as a below-the-fold afterthought) comes G+ social.
➍ Engagement for us die-hard G+ users has dropped dramatically (analytics don't lie; for example, I have over 15,000 followers on G+ social, and over 30,000 followers on some of my collections, and yet I get relatively few comments or shares (relative to the number of followers, as compared to other social channels). G+ used to be my most engaging, reciprocal social channel, but Pinterest passed them up over a year ago, as has FB and even StumbleUpon.
➎ My favorite part of social is providing value, getting to know people and having interesting conversations. I’ve been with G+ since its private launch years ago and I still love and respect it.Google has good reasons for making these changes, and as long as they remain king of search, they will be a worthwhile social channel. It's just that how you use G+ might need to change if want to your engagement levels to rise (instead of decrease). ___"My favorite part of social is providing value, getting to know people and having interesting conversations."

By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore.
Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou," I said, "art sure no craven,
Ghastly grim and ancient raven wandering from the Nightly shore —
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore!"
Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore."

"Today Today Today"

Today, today, today
I'm finally on my way
The time has come to say
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

The bird is on the wing
The bell is about to ring
The big girl she's about to sing
Today, today, today

The world will open wide
And I'm running with the tide
It's time to cut this side
And I must not miss my ride

Somehow I haven't died
And I feel the same inside
As when I caught this ride
When first I sold my pride

The way ahead is clear
My heart is free from fear
I'll plant my flag right here
Today, today, today
