Yes, I watch Married at First Sight. Yes, I’m very late with this review. I know season eight has begun.
I’m late because I watch the show with Aunt Barb, who got me into it, and we haven’t had time to finish. But I have caught up on what was the weirdest season so far.
Now because the Internet is clamoring for someone who has never been married to review a show on marriage, here is my review.
This is the 300th post I have made to this blog. It’s kind of a cool milestone for me. So, I felt like acknowledging it here.
I used to believe there was a responsible way to use Facebook. As long as you didn’t like any business pages, share anything from a business, or click on adds, my theory was you were relatively safe. The recent disclosure that Facebook shared private messages with Netflix and /Spotify is a game changer.
I recapped my year in review. This post is looking ahead for me in 2019. I will preview the following topics:
- My job
- Exercise and health
- Continued Learning
- This website
- The house
I’m a little late with this, but it’s time to recap my 2018. On the whole, 2018 was a great year for me. I left 2018 feeling as good about the future as I can remember.
This year in review will have two main sections:
- Things that Didn’t go as Planned
John Perkins’s New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man would be better named as an update to Confessions of an Economic Hit Man. Much of the New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man is stuff that appeared in the original book. So, I only read about 40 percent of this version. Still, New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man was decent read.
John Perkins’s Confessions of an Economic Hit Man is one of the most important books I have ever read. As an American who cares about people in other countries, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man was an infuriating read. The book is an excellent example of exactly how much America’s foreign policy has been designed around the interests of corporations.
For a long time, Emma has been gaining weight. Even though she has always been lazy, I have been thinking her unwillingness to move has been getting worse. We have had her for more than four years, and we don’t have any idea of her age. Given that she had puppies before showing up in Mom’s yard, it’s likely Emma’s reasonably old. But today was scary.
Below is a story everyone should read. It truly exemplifies what we need to find more often.
today’s version of news updates includes stories about the following topics:
- The government’s advice to workers not getting paid during the shutdown
American Prison by Shane Bauer tells the story of a journalist who worked undercover in a private prison.
