Just another reason I will never use Facebook again

Yep, you read that right, I deleted my Facebook account. How can I live without it, you ask? I have been for almost 3 months now. I don’t even miss it. Suzanne said I made her a Facebook widow. Sorry babe!

Facebook might have been cool at one time, but I feel that it will continue on its course of self destruction or at the very least, get mired down in litigation by other countries that might follow Germany’s lead.

If Germany is successful in suing Facebook and winning, we might see some changes. But from what I have read and seen about Zuckerberg, I highly doubt it. He is for all intents and purposes a fascist dictator who only has his own agenda at heart. Why do you think he has not released an IPO of Facebook stock to the public? Because if he does, he has to answer to the people for real, not just users who, for the most part, blindly use Facebook and throw everything they have at it willy-nilly.

He counts on that. People don’t usually read privacy policies and if they do, they probably just skim over it. I know, I have done that very thing. But if the public owns stock in his company then they will have a bigger voice. Right now he gets his money from advertising companies who, like Zuckerberg, only have their best interests at heart. They could care less what personal information they are using as long as they get it.

And that is why I don’t use the site anymore. Facebook is done all wrong. It could be better. He could let us decide what info to share and what not to share.

But he doesn’t.

And he probably never will.

And I will probably never be back.

Just catching up

Hey there everyone, if anyone is still out there. I must have fallen asleep at the wheel. Boy have I neglected this blog.

Well I canceled my Facebook account and I don’t use Twitter so pretty much all I have left is this blog. I hope you will continue to follow my posts and provide feedback and comments on the articles you find interesting.

Thanks for sticking around!

More to come soon!

Well the new year is coming

And what is there to talk about? Well 2008 was a pretty good year. A Dodge won the Daytona 500 for only the second time since Richard Petty won his last in the famed number 43 back in 1974 (Ward Burton won in 2002 in an Intrepid). Kansas won the Men’s NCAA Basketball championship (whatever, Duke rules anyway!), a team from a city other than NY or Boston won the World Series (Philly), and Jimmie Johnson won his 3rd Sprint Cup Championship (in a row, the only other drive to do that is Cale Yarborough). No, I don’t really care much for basketball or hockey but if you must know, the Celtics and the Red Wings won respectively.

Well the Panthers just won the NFC South division and will be the number 2 seed in the playoffs, have a week off, and host a divisional round game here in Charlotte 2 weeks from now. They are the only team in the NFL this year to go unbeaten at home, 10-0 including the 2 preseason games. That’s awesome!!! Go Panthers!!!!

We will be out of town for the New Years celebration (going to Atlanta!) Not sure if I will post before then but if I do not I hope everyone has a dafe and Happy New Year!!

Merry Christmas!

For anyone who reads my blog 🙂 Merry Christmas! Hope your holiday is filled with love, family, and joy. Please remember the true meaning of Christmas in that we are celebrating the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. It is Him we think of at this time of year. As they say He is the reason for the season.

I want to share my testimony that I know God lives and that His Son, Jesus Christ lives and is the Savior  and Redeemer of the world. He loves and knows each of us and only wants us to turn to Him. Please remember Him this Christmas and throughout the New Year.

Thanks for reading and stayed tuned for more.

New look

Well I know that Christmas hasn’t arrived yet, but I just wanted to check out some new themes here on WordPress and I think I like this one the best. It lets me add a custom pic for the header and of course I had to show off one of the greatest Dodge cars of all time, the Challenger. I will probably rotate that pic out from time to time as well. I have some great pics of the new 2009 Ram (my next truck!). If you haven’t seen how tough this truck is run over to ramchallenge.com to check it out.

I can’t believe I am saying this but the new Ford looks to be pretty tough as well. I don’t think I will ever buy a Ford though, but if I did it would be a truck. After all they built the first pickup truck ever. Found a site where Ford did some comparisons  with the other major trucks and it seemed to hold its own, if not flat out beat the others hands down. Very interesting indeed. Check out the videos here.

Well anyway, hope you like the new theme.

My wife is right!

Not that I really didn’t know that to begin with, but there comes a time in every mans life when he has to come to grips with reality. When he first realizes that he never really has a clue as to what is going on around him and that the one person who does, the one person who keeps him sane and on the right track, is the person he has been married to for almost 10 years. For me, that occurred the other day when my wife suggested I write a sports blog. She seems to be impressed with all the NFL, NASCAR, and BASS stats that I keep stored away in this tiny brain of mine and said that it would be cool if I wrote all that stuff down in a blog. So, knowing that most of the stats I keep on file are actually already out there on the great device that Al Gore (a Democrat LOL) created known to all us mere mortals as the Internet, I have decided to change the format of my blog to a more sports/family/random thoughts (that’s for Cami!) oriented blog. I hope you enjoy what I hope will be enjoyable.

Even if you don’t like sports I may yet have something for you. I hope to share this with friends and family and make this a vehicle with which to express thoughts, encourage discussion, a little trash talk during the season (which for an NFL, NASCAR, and BASS fan never ends), and a place to keep up with me and and my family to see what is going on. I’m sure occasionally I will post some kind of pic or video of the family. They will probably be of Savannah glaring at me with that look of “Dad, you’re kidding right…another fishing show?” Or my wife wishing she had blocked SpeedTV. Ok that last one is not entirely true, I have successfully converted her to a true NASCAR fan and she loves to watch the Panthers.

Speaking of which I guess I can get started on my new format by mentioning tonights game betweent he Panthers and the Bucaneers. It is here in Charlotte and both teams are 9-3 tied for first place in the NFC South division. Tamps beat us in the first game on Oct 12 so the Panthers really need to win this one. And with the last 3 games against Denver, at the Giants and at New Orleans they need to step up and get some of the in the win column if not all of them. The Giants lost this week so the winner of tonights game (the Panthers) will only be one game back for home feild advantage throught the playoffs! Imagine that, the road to the SuperBowl coming through Charlotte!

Well the Bucs are nothing to sneeze at, and they have a tough defense. They have only allowed one, repeat one rushing touchdown this year, which doesn’t bode well for DeAngelo Williams, but I think he has what it takes if he gets the ball 20-30 times he will get it done. Go Panthers! I will update tomorrow after the game.

Until then…
