On today’s edition of Tech Thursday we take a look at a site that is musical and addicting. If there is one site you should be wasting your time on, this is one of them. Have fun and don’t be alarmed at the tabs on my web browser in the video. I was doing some research for a new project in class. Cheers!

Hot on the heels of my last post based on grade school dances comes Prom. You remember Prom right? Well, so do I and had I combined everything in my last post it would have been huge. Instead I decided to break it up into two different posts to make it less drawn out. So depending on your school era, what do you remember about your prom? Was it the fancy clothes, the dancing, the food, the limo, the big hair? I know what you’re thinking, big hair? Yes, certain era’s had big hair and actually every era had big hair at one time or another. My era included big bangs with tons of Aqua Net hairspray but when I went to prom this had long since passed. Prom for me was fun but it wasn’t like what you see in movies. I mean, the general idea was the same but in no way did it include all the drama that comes with movies or TV shows.
I was a Junior when I went to my first prom. Going into that year I had begun dating a beautiful redhead named Melissa. I met her the summer before at the Super Valu (yes, without the “E”) in Douglas. We worked together and I pursued her. After several dates and hanging out we made our relationship official and became boyfriend and girlfriend. We were always together and although it got me into hot water with my dad, I was determined to spend as much time with her as i could and when it came to what my dad thought I could care less. When prom came around it was a big deal. If I remember correctly, we went to a dress shop in Kalamazoo and the dress she bought was red. My tux included a vest and such that matched the color of Melissa’s dress. Although I was told by some that my tux looked like a waiters uniform, I thought it was killer. When the night came we were dressed to impress. The prom was held at a golf course in Holland and it was pretty nice. The place was packed and full of the usual prom activities. We danced, took pictures and had an all around good time.
My senior prom was even better. Melissa and I were once again dressed to kill and we were styling in my ’83 Chevy Camaro. She of course looked great both times but I on the other hand probably looked like a dork. At the time I got a lot of compliments and I thought I looked cool but looking back at it now, I may have looked odd. Judging from the picture I provided in this post I probably looked like Duckie. My dancing is way better, in my mind, but I’m definitely zany and weird like him. No matter how I looked or danced, we had an excellent experience. Those were good times back then. It’s good for all of us to keep memories like this in mind. As we get older we forget how carefree we once were. We become so consumed with life that we fail to stop for a moment and enjoy what we experience. Back in school there were no worries. Things were rather easy and we were able to take the time to enjoy what we had. Those times are long gone but not forgotten. The memories live on and that’s why I post topics like this. It’s a good way to generate conversation between everyone and share stories. So here’s your chance folks. What made prom memorable? What did you enjoy most and if you care to, you can even say who you went with. Happy reading and reflecting. Cheers!Post Views: 25

Mmm, mmm, mmm! Love me some sweet sweet soda pop. How many of you dig your pop? I know I do and when there is no beer or bottles of water I go for an ice cold pop. My favorites are Pepsi, Coke, 7up, Sprite, and others but no diets. I can’t stand the after taste but if there is nothing left in the machine I will take what is there. Back when I lived in Florida and worked at the Frostproof Police Department as a dispatcher, I would drink 3 to 4 pops in an 8 hour shift. I wasn’t drinking much water there and eventually it took its toll on me. The area where my kidney’s are located began to hurt and I finally broke down and went to the doctor. She told me I needed to cut my pop consumption in half and limit my intake to light colored soda only because whatever it was that was in dark colored sodas made it stronger and I was beginning to develop kidney stones.
She put me on some meds and sent me home. Ever since then I have tried to limit my soda intake but it’s hard, really hard. My wife recently found some information for me and it’s crazy. Whats more crazy is the sweetener in diet sodas. From what I have read sugar intake effects your immune system. One can of pop can destroy your immune system for up to 5 hours within 45 minutes after drinking it. So if you get sick easily and you drink a lot of soda you now know why. An over consumption of soda or simply sugar in general can lead to hypoglycemia, diabetes, heart disease, chronic tiredness, and chronic fatigue. Here I thought I was not getting enough sleep so I would drink pop in order to wake me up but it’s doing the opposite. When it comes to diet soda a study has found that an over consumption of it may raise a risk involving strokes and heart attacks.
I would like to mention a little bit about the sweetener that is used in diet soda and possibly all soda for that matter. Have you ever heard of Aspartame? I would hope so if you drink diet soda, but I do want to make something clear to everyone. I do not claim to know all the facts on this and I am only providing information on what I have read. Believe what you want to believe and I am only putting it out there because it’s interesting. I still drink pop so I’m not stepping onto my soap box and saying don’t drink pop because that would just make me a hypocrite. I drink pop when I shouldn’t because of past problems with my kidneys. This is my own thing and I can make my own decisions just like you. So here’s a quick quote, “A few of the 90 different documented symptoms listed in the report as being caused by aspartame include: Headaches/migraines, dizziness, seizures, nausea, numbness, muscle spasms, weight gain, rashes, depression, fatigue, irritability, tachycardia, insomnia, vision problems, hearing loss, heart palpitations, breathing difficulties, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, loss of taste, tinnitus, vertigo, memory loss, and joint pain.” That’s pretty crazy if you ask me. I know the FDA has approved it and said that it’s safe for us but so is the meat they have approved and we all know how much bad meat goes around. Oh well, check out the links and do your own homework on it. Cheers!Post Views: 53
