Why Don’t People Return Their Shopping Carts?

shopping cart

Have you ever gone to a mall, shopping center or a grocery store and there’s an empty parking space between two vehicles before you turn into that space, you see a shopping cart!

What to do? Do you wish people can return a simple shopping cart to the right place even though the place is half a mile to the store!

They have a cart receptacle in the parking place, and still, there are far away too. Or people have a child, and they don’t want to leave a child unattended for three seconds, it’s the holidays, and people are in a rush.

Shopping cart grass

They leave a shopping cart near a tree on a grassy hill or let it roll away to pond where the ducks are eating a hamburger on the road. Don’t give a duck a CPR, if it is choking on a hamburger, that would be dangerous. Just let it go. Walk away. You have not committed a crime. It will survive. One quack it will fly out of the duck’s mouth. I have seen it. I got hit by one, the other day. It wasn’t that good. Luckily, I got insurance by Aflac!

If you park next to cart receptacle, then it is good. You can unload the items in your car and put the cart in the receptacle. If you hear a baby crying, when you walk away then you forgot one item. Don’t do that.

Please return the shopping carts to the receptacle.

It’s the holidays. We are always in a rush and traffic is getting worst. Accidents may occur when getting home. If you ever get stuck in traffic, just be patience. Call ahead and tell them there’s an accident and will be home soon. The first responders are doing their best to remove what’s on the road quickly, and you will be home soon.

The Last Jedi

the last Jedi 12 17 2017

I am not going to give spoilers about this movie, but the visuals and graphics are absolutely stunning. You will definitely want to see it. If you are not a fan, then it is not the end of the world. Star Wars is one of the great Franchise movies ever made an epic tale of Good and Evil.  The same thing with the politicians they were good once and they turn evil? The total of all the Star Wars made over a billion for the past 40 years.

I like the cinematography in this movie because it’s absolutely breathtaking especially the action scenes they put together.  Since I am a photographer, I like the way it is put together.  Each frame tells a story.

Billie Lourd - The last jedi

Since Carrie Fisher died over a year ago, it is good to remember that this movie will be dedicated to Carrie Fisher and the next episode of the Star Wars Franchise movie should have an epic funeral of her instead of bringing her back alive. Did you know Carrie Fisher helped writing the screenplay for the Last Jedi? There was an epic scene in the movie or was it a premonition she had before she died.  And did anyone know that Billie Lourd, Carrie Fisher daughter was in the movie?

So far, the number is rising, the box office reports over 250 million surpassing the budget of this movie, that means the actors will be paid. Then the IRS will be after them.

rey jedi

One of the biggest clues in the movie is who is Rey? What’s her relationship with the characters in the movie? Who is related too? We don’t know. And why did she have the powers of the Jedi?  Is Kylo Ren and Rey related somehow? Did Yoda conceive her when Yoda did it with human female many years ago in a galaxy far far away?  Should they make a movie about Rey? People want an answer, and it would be great.  I am going to write a screenplay and see if they like it. It would take time to write it.

Go See it.

Haunted Universities

The sound of footsteps, door slamming, and children laughing are the creepiest sound that you might hear in the dead of night when you are fast asleep in your dorm room and be awakened in the middle of the night.  Most of the universities are haunted, but they are the most popular universities to go and they have an excellent curriculum.

Montcalri State University

Montclair State University in New Jersey is said to be one of the most haunted colleges in America.  For years there have been reports of doors and windows slamming, lights flickering on and off, constant cold, and even a ghost who hovers over the beds of the students.

Montclair is built on top of Indian burial grounds, and alumni say it’s a very scary school. So scary, that many refuse to go in the woods after sundown. There have been many reports of figures believed to be Native Americans spotted in the forests.

Students reported appliances and lights turned on and off, bedroom and bathroom doors would have opened and the sound of a little girl laughing in the hallway.  Door knobs would rattle too.

A female resident woke up in the middle of the night to find a man dressed in 19th-century clothing standing over her bed with a loving facial expression. She thought that it was her roommate’s boyfriend and told him that he had the wrong bed. After saying this, she watched the man suddenly vanish into thin air.

Cal State University

Cal State University Channel Islands (Camarillo, CA)

It is never a good idea to build a university on the grounds of an old insane asylum it was closed in 1997, and it was used as a film location for Halloween (1978).  Since it was abandoned for several years, in 2002, they opened Cal State, and students have reported seeing the universities old residents wandering the grounds, halls, and streets of Cal State. Inmates are seen entering rooms which are empty upon investigation. Another inmate dances in a parking lot at night, only to fade as he approaches the streetlights. Scarier still are the violent ghosts who have thrown objects, knocked students over, and vandalized locked classrooms.

Fordam

Fordham University

Fordham’s Bronx campus is creepy looking enough to have been featured in The Exorcist (the campus was used in the filming of The Exorcist), and its plethora of ghost stories stand up to its frightening feel: the school, which dates back to 1841, was built atop of old hospitals and morgues and it is haunted by every kind of ghost, from children to priests.

More will come …

Boo… What’s that behind you!

Dude Where’s my Classes?

Class pic

When your child enters a college or university, it will be so different than high school, no more bell sounds, the students will be all over in the hallways bumping into you, and they have to carry fifteen pounds of books on their back! I hope they have medical insurance for a chiropractor! It will be a different world when they enter.

First, they need a map of the campus to find all of the buildings they need to go for their classes. Most of the time they will spend their lives in the library, that’s the place to do homework. The dorm room is a place to sleep and do more homework.

Classes may be in different buildings or the other side of the campus. I hope they have the gym shoes, it’s time for the shoes to do some walking and it is the best time to do some cardio too.

Here’s a tip, try to have your classes nearby to other buildings, so you don’t have to rush or run to classes, and be late.  A possible a hand-written excuse from your professors to give? No. Don’t be late to classes.

Back in high school, they used to get up early for their eight o’clock classes or earlier for activities before classes.

Try to arrange your classes between 10:00 am through 2:30 pm, that means you still have to get up in the morning. Do you really want to get up five o’clock in the morning or before sunrise or see an apparition in your room that wasn’t supposed to be there? Your room is haunted!  You are up anyway, might as well get ready and finished that homework assignment. And eat breakfast.  And try to schedule any activities in the afternoon or evenings.  If a class is overbooked in the morning, don’t worry you won’t be dragged across the floor just schedule another time when it is available, if they have a midnight class, take it.

If you have a gap between classes don’t just sit there and do nothing or meditate, you might fall asleep on the couch or someone’s lap – that would be awkward if she’s attractive get her phone number.

Highlight the materials or rewrite your notes, in cursive to get a better understanding and prepared for the next class. Um, you all know that cursive is required in writing notes in class. Do you? Oh well.

Organize your backpack, have your notebook and books in order of class schedule times. Don’t leave your cell phone out; there’s a clock in the room, remember there is no class bell only your professor will excuse you.

Make sure you have the University app on your phone, this will alert you if there’s an emergency that the school has to close down due to weather.  Check your campus email. Check your assignment online too; there’s no excuse that your assignment will be late anymore. All of the assignments will be scan and monitor through online – that’s right your papers will be scanned for plagiarisms, even I don’t like it. I write well. However, the professor doesn’t read the papers anymore.

America Got Talent: Call Backs 2

Puddles the Ckown

For the second week, 20 acts will perform, and 7 will move on, that leaves 13 acts to leave the competition, but will leave with their dignity that they made it through this round. They should do the same thing when American Idol comes back in the Spring of 2018. They should have new rules of how to select the best talent.

One example would be Jokgu the piano playing chicken gave the crowd a huge response when he auditions for the first time. However, when it was time for the callbacks for a second-time audition and played with another chicken. Both chickens got stage fright and one poop out an egg, I guess they were out. And I had fried chicken for supper.

For the guest judge, they brought recording artist DJ Khaled to help identify real talent for the evening.

It was no surprised that Khaled had a soft spot for one of the singers, they were other singers who were also great, but he had to pick one of the acts. I think they should change the golden buzzer rules watch all the acts first and then pick one to go to the live shows. Evidently, Khaled chooses Chase Goehring. He was trying to push the button again for Evie Clair, but it did not work, only act for each week, bummer.

Evie Clair 1

One of my favorites was Puddles Pity Party the Clown, Simon worst nightmare but this clown was special, the clown can sing. Sad clown with a fantastic voice. If this clown was on The Voice, the judges would not know who it is.  He sang a Celine Dion power ballad “All By Myself” to a huge ovation from the crowd and the judges. I bet the clown will be in the Top 5.

In the end, the judges had to choose which acts will go through the next round. I like this version of American Got Talent when the acts have to perform again for the audience and a guest judge. And the guest judge has to choose one of the acts to go through.

In this round, seven acts are saved, and they are Chase Goehring, Puddles the Sad Clown, Mirror Image, Junior and Emily, Colin Cloud, Yoli Mayor and Evie Clair.

Last week, they had Chris Hardwick, comedian and the host of The Wall a game show on NBC, gave his Golden Buzzer to 9-year-old singer Angelica Hale.

Advancing to the next round along with The Masqueraders, Sara and Hero, Singing Donald Trump, (My Favorite – don’t ask me he’s entertaining), Just Jerk, Demian Aditya, and Eric Jones

They’ll all perform at the Dolby Theater in the live rounds.

Who are your favorites?

Be sure to tune in every  Tuesday Night at 8 pm on NBC! Tuesday Night is Family Night!

Michael Phelps Got Eaten by a Shark

michael-phelps and shark

So we saw Michael Phelps race against the Great White?

Wait a minute!

Michael Phelps is racing a Great White!

No way.

This is impossible, how do you train a Great White to swim in a straight line against Michael Phelps? It’s impossible. If we can train Killer Whales to perform at Sea World, there’s no way or possible to train a Great White to swim in a straight line.

“Clearly, we can’t put Michael in one lane and a great white shark in the far lane. We are going have to do a simulation,” said Tristian Gutteridge, ecologist.

That was the great give away right there; they have to do CGI of shark swimming against Michael Phelps. It’s a simple logical explanation; we can’t put a man in the water with a great white, someone could get killed. And who get’s the medal, probably the great white. They should put Michael Phelps in a Sharkando movie; then it will be funny to see him out swim a shark. By the way, the shark won by two seconds of a point.

The whole hour of the program they talked about the speed of the sharks which was quite interesting to watch and to learn about – maybe there’s a pop quiz at the end of the show of who can out run a shark! Michael Phelps will be on the pop quiz, and it would be a wrong answer.

By the way, it was interesting to watch, however, they did it again. Remember Cannibal in the Jungle? I hope they do it again soon – it’s interesting to watch and learn, and get fool by it.

You Have Talent, You got to find!

Ever since American Idol is not on the air anymore, but it will be back, because of the judges are music producers and singers, and they know what they look for in a singer if they have a good voice and the image is right for their label then they get a record label.

If you haven’t seen the recent episode of The Voice, they had teenagers in there 15 or 16, and they had incredible voices, the judges couldn’t tell if there were adults singing on the show and they got selected by their mentors on the show.

Why are these teenagers competing on The Voice, So You Think You Can Dance and America’s Got Talent because they got talent and they want to show their talent and what they got? And possible land a record deal, to do that they must work hard and compete with others in the same group with other talented people.

If you dream to be famous, don’t dream, make it real. We have community theaters in our local area, auditions for plays, if you don’t get selected – work backstage – that’s the fun part.

Don’t dream of being a director, if you have a camera that takes good video and you have a good video editor software, tell good stories about your yourself, or make Tutorials, How-to’s, or Reviews of your favorite subjects and topics. Make us laugh!

Do it as regular basis, because editing takes time and follow the guidelines on YouTube, their rules and regulations. That’s how people get notice – they entertain us. Be like them and put your own flair in it. Many actors and musicians got their starts making videos, and now they are famous. YouTube is a platform for talented people.   Stop watching YouTube videos and make a video! Entertain us!

Did you know that most casting agencies go through YouTube videos and if the video has more than a quarter of million views (250,000 – like this number) they will consider you have something. Have you checked how many views they have and compare to yours? You have to be better than them. It’s like a job interview, you have to impress people.
