Reviewing old Thoughts

I have maintained a blog on for a number of years. I'm going through old blogs to either remove them or add my thoughts for them today. You can find them here and probably see some of them on my Twitter that I feel are worth the comment.

I'm doing this because I think that my thoughts and the environment change over time and, perhaps things that I thought and said in past years just don't apply to today's world -- or maybe they do, bummer!

The Rapture - May 21, 2011

The Rapture is due to start today. My wife tells me the news said around 6:00 PM. But 6:00 PM where? Here in the U.S. most time references on the TV are for Eastern Time. Even if something is happening on the west coast (3 time zones away), they state the time in ED/ST. I suspect this is because people on the East Coast can't make the translation, but I can't prove it. Anyway, it seems a bit strange that God would be tied to a timezone. Unless maybe he is spending his summer in the Bahamas, Hawaii or some other exotic locale.

By the way, as I write this it's already 11:20 PM in Hong Kong and I haven't heard that they have ceased to exist.

Something's Wrong and Blogger's Back

I wasn't really sure where to put this as I wanted to comment about Blogger being back -- obvious since I'm writing this on Blogger -- and make a comment about something I just saw. A photograph just sold for over $3-million dollars (source). A photograph . . . imagine what good you can do with that type of money . . . how many people you can feed, clothe, house . . . and someone paid that amount for a picture. What's wrong with this picture?

By the way, I decided to put this here because the fact that I'm just blogging about it and not shouting in the front yard at the top of my lungs is indicative of the times we are in.

How do you keep up?

I know that people are all over the place on social media. I'm on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, as well as several blogs and my own site. And this doesn't count the number of sites that I follow. Just reading Twitter and news feeds takes time to keep up. So how do you do it?

Perhaps the more pertinent question is

It is worth it to do all this?
Sometimes I wonder. I have continuous contact in my work life and in my home life and I wonder, sometimes, if that really makes work-life balance. I feel pressure on both sides to make these things interesting and to keep up with all the things which are going on. Unfortunately, I don't have a staff of hundreds to keep up. There are just three of us -- me, myself and I -- and sometimes, it seems overwhelming.

So how do you do it?
