Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.
The first two days, most Typepad blog users were understanding about the Denial of Service attack on the hosting company. But when it happened again on Sunday and again this morning, tempers are getting short. It seems as though they haven't been able to fix this attack once and for all, either that or they keep gettting hit over and over. At any rate we're back up again, just a matter of how long.
They are not calling it a hacking, but an attack since bloggers info is not being taken. You can read Typepad's Twitter feed from the past few days to see how they explain or don't explain what's going on and the status of thing.s
According to information put out by Typepad, the blog hosting company, they were the victim of a hacking attack during the night which kept most blogs from loading for a good part of the morning. I am happy to see things are back up.
From a KSDK viewer tweet, she and her horse in a selfie. Here's the picture in case you don't want to go to the twitter link.
The best by far.
And speaking of selfies, the American Psychiatric Association has classified selfies as a mental disorder. The disorder is called selfitis, and is defined as the obsessive compulsive desire to take photos of one’s self and post them on social media as a way to make up for the lack of self-esteem and to fill a gap in intimacy.
APA said there are three levels of the disorder:
Borderline selfitis : taking photos of one’s self at least three times a day but not posting them on social media
Acute selfitis: taking photos of one’s self at least three times a day and posting each of the photos on social media
Chronic selfitis: Uncontrollable urge to take photos of one’s self round the clock and posting the photos on social media more than six times a day
Want to know which American cities are the most pleasant? Pleasant meaning cities having the most mean temperature days of between 55 and 75. Software designer, Kelly Norton made an interative map with data from NOAA and found the five most pleasant cities are: Los Angeles, San Diego, Oxnard, Simi Valley and San Francisco.
Whoa. California Dreaming. Surprised about San Francisco because the times I've been there it has been fairly chilly even in summer.
The least pleasant cities are: McAllister Montana, Northeast of Reno Nevada (I wonder if Northeast of Reno is the actual city name, Clancy Montana, Douglas Wyoming, and another wierd city name, East of Cedarville California.
The link has the map and my laying your cursor on any circle you'll get the mean average of pleasant days per year. St. Louis gets 47 or 50, the map has two bubbles for St. Louis. Chicago has more pleasant days than St. Louis.
