35 Great Hacks in 30 minutes

Below are two links. The first is 14 great tool hacks.  The second is 21 great hacks.

I have to tell you I was rather blown away here.  There was so much in the first link!

You will find something you can use.  Over the years, I would have saved a bunch of time, effort, pain, and money if I had memorized these hacks.  Check them out.  I think you will agree they are something else.  Youtube, I gotta love you!

And here’s the second link:

 

Just so you can have a bit of fun (I try to do that), here are about 6-7 minutes of “Hacks” that you should “not try at home”:

 

Namaste,

Scott

***OOOh!  Gotta say it!  My story (included in “The Dead Sea” anthology is now on Amazon.  It is or will be on Kindle very soon!) at http://www.amazon.com/dp/1478310596 . Okay, done.

I was given nomination for two awards by Ruby, for the Very Inspiring Blogger and the Versatile Blogger. I passed the torch on to the very lovely and talented Katrina Perkins who gave it to John W Howell.  He, then, gave it back to me.  No Problem!  I enjoy this very much.

The rules that need to be followed are:

  1. Display the Award Certificate on your website

  2. Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented your award

  3. Present 15 awards to deserving bloggers

  4. Drop them a comment to tip them off after you’ve linked them in the post

  5. Post 7 interesting things about yourself.

Since I have already been nominated for each of the awards, I will nominate as many new people as I can, but I may not hit the 15 mark. JMMcDowell mentioned that often combining awards is the way to go.  I can’t take any credit for that as Ruby sent the combination to me.  As for the wonderful pic of the “Dragon Loyalty Award” that needs some explaining.  I enjoy starting my posts with a pic.  I looked up awards on Google and enjoyed this one.  So, I just wanted to clarify that I really didn’t mean for it to become a new award!  However, let me give it fair credit as the pick came from:  Parajunkee  .  Now, if it is legal and all to continue passing the picture, I love it.  I would ask that you embed or give the credit mentioned above.  There, I think we have covered the basis.

Now for number 5 – the 7 more interesting things about me:

1)  On my European concert tour with Sounds of Hope in 1976, I was in England and they had dumpling balls of some sort.  I popped one in my mouth and bit, only to find that the center was almost boiling.  It put a large blister on the roof of my mouth!

2) I once was playing a round of golf and a worm deflected my ball on a long putt.  It was going to be in, too!

3)  My favorite colors used to be midnight blue, but in the last few years, it has changed to powder blue.  I also have gained an intense like for earth tones.

4) I was in the restroom at work once when the Halon (fire extinguishing equipment) was set off in our computer room.  The equipment was located in a space next to the bathroom.  The noise was so loud…well, I am glad I was already sitting.

5) Twice in my life, as a security guard at two different companies, I tripped and nearly fell off the roof of 8 story buildings.

6) One of my dreams growing up was to attend a John Denver concert.  Sadly, his death came before my dream was realized.

7) I was, once, instrumental in bringing a theft ring to justice.

The nominees for the two awards are: (loud drum roll with full orchestral accompaniment)

1) Rian at Truthandcake – Truth be told, Rian was one of the very first bloggers I followed.  I read her on “Freshly Pressed” and really liked what she had to say.

2) Soma  – Soma has been extremely busy lately, so I don’t know if she will be able to accept this, but I wanted to send it anyway as she has always been able to make me smile.

3) Mollie Player – Mollie has become, at least to me, one of my better friends here on WordPress.  Her devotion to her stories and books keep me reading and enjoying her blog.  We share a lot of beliefs in the positive and in visualization and creating what you choose in your life.

4) JMMcDowell – Whether it is through her character, Meghan Bode, and the in post mysteries she presents or through her up-and-coming books, JMMcDowell is a joy to read and to follow.

5) Susie Lindau –  Susie is a hoot!  I laugh repeatedly when I read her posts.

6) Magsx2 – Margaret is another blogger who I haven’t heard from in awhile.  I know she is busy, so she may not be able to accept this award either, but I had to try!

7) PFPT (Pretty Feet, Pop Toe) – This young lady has been a favorite of mine for quite awhile!  As you can see by the post I am directing you to here, she has quite a biting sense of humor.

8) Buckwheatsrisk – Zoe is a great blog-friend of mine.  We have hit it off very well and, often, hold short conversations in our comments.  Her blog is important as it covers the nature of parental abuse and the consequences on the children.

I know that I only did 8 of 15, but, to tell you the truth, I am to the point that I may be nominating people I have just nominated.  So, to give them a break (and me) I will stop.

If you aren’t in the list above, just know that I thought of all of you.

If you are, don’t feel obligated to accept.  If you have won before, so what?  I did, too.  If you don’t know 15 blogs to nominate, you have two choices – nominate who you do know, or follow some more.  The other 14 above would be good choices 🙂

Please visit the blogs that aren’t yours and enjoy.  Following them wouldn’t be a bad idea!

Namaste,

Scott

And the Nominees are…

Nah, not this award, but it’s a great picture!

I was given nomination for two awards by Ruby, for the Very Inspiring Blogger and the Versatile Blogger.  I happily accept both.  It is my second time around for the Versatile Blogger.  The rules, I believe, have been combined and are as follows:

The rules that need to be followed are:

  1. Display the Award Certificate on your website

  2. Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented your award

  3. Present 15 awards to deserving bloggers

  4. Drop them a comment to tip them off after you’ve linked them in the post

  5. Post 7 interesting things about yourself.

The two awards are now on my posting page.  The second one goes to Ruby if you click on it.  I left the first one still pointing to the person who nominated me the first time.

That also took care of number two.  To visit Ruby, just click on the second award pic.

Three and four are handled below.

Now for number 5 – the 7 interesting things about me:

1)  Mom and Dad were deciding between Scott and Mickey for my name before I was born.

2)  I lettered twice in Golf in High School, was team captain, and most valuable player.

3)  I had an outdoor cat which would wake me up each morning when I was in school.  One day he stepped in my mouth as I yawned.

4)  While working as a computer programmer, I wrote most of the company’s programs for the Purchasing, Back Order, Customer Overdue Payment, Salary, and portions of several other departments.

5)  I wrote one of my first poems back in grade school.  It was titled “I Love the Ocean”.  It was a horrible little poem and…I don’t like the ocean.

6)  For many years, my favorite actress was Jessica Alba.

7)  I played “Magic the Gathering” for many years and still have over 39,000 cards.

The nominees for the two awards are: (loud drum roll with full orchestral accompaniment)
