Well, well, well….it’s true I have been on a very LONG blogging break. As this gorgeous fall season settles in on me and our bustling routines are underway, I was just sitting here wondering what I was up for “next”. I have found that going with my “gut” always steers me in the right direction and I’ll be darned if it didn’t steer me right back to my little Cuppa Sunshine & Sugar! I have to say that following your “gut” certainly keeps life interesting, and honestly, less stressful in the grand scheme of things. So that said, after much consideration of all of the “do’s” and “don’ts” and “tips” for blogging that I have spent countless hours devouring…I have come to the conclusion that my blog is just that “My Blog”! Ha! What a novel idea (insert *sarcasm*)…that I can just roll with it. Without any rules or do’s or don’ts. Just me. What I want to put out there. When I want to put it out there. Just let it be an amazing little haven for creativity to share with my awesometastic readers. The funny thing is, this is what it always should have been. Ya know, before it turned into something else that I loved but wanted to retreat from. If that makes any sense at all….? So here I am. Onward!
First course of business. Truth Time! While in the past I was maintaining a strict posting schedule routine and became a stats junkie…I believe this was an integral part of pushing me to take a break. I guess it just took the fun and spontaneity out of it for me in a lot of ways. With the time commitment I was maintaining….I realized I had put too much pressure on myself and that was never the goal. SO! Going forward I am just gonna post when I post and roll with it. ;) Second and final course of business today….I HAVE MISSED YOU—MY READERS!!!!! I hope you all are well, filled with warm happy fuzzies and looking as dapper as ever! I look forward to catching up with all of you and leave you with a FUNNY of course! Enjoy your day! ~Lisa
P.S. In my honest opinion…just say no to selfie sticks.
Well if there was nothing else that made me laugh today I would be okay, because this one sent me to laughing tears. Ahhhhh! Ha ha ha! Too funny! #takeachillpilldude ~Lisa
It’s the “Dirty Harry” version of tech support. A Colorado Springs man was hit with a municipal violation after he ended a long-running battle with an uncooperative computer by blasting it eight times with a handgun Monday, police said.
Lucas Hinch, 37, was given a violation for discharging a weapon inside city limits, police said in a report titled, “Man Kills His Computer.”
The police report said that Hinch “was fed up with fighting his computer for the last several months” and shot it in a back alley behind his home just before 7 p.m., “effectively disabling it.”
Police public information officer Lt. Catherine Buckley said he shot the old Dell desktop machine with a Hi-Point 9 mm pistol.
“He did tell us he thought it was okay because we are an open carry state,” Buckley said. But it is illegal in the city limits to discharge a firearm unless one is protecting life or property, she said. The violation would most likely result in a fine, Buckley said.
The police department posted a photo of the blasted machine on its Twitter and Facebook pages.
“You have to keep that balance whenever you’re working with social media,” Buckley said. “Sometimes when you have things that happen such as this, we like to think we can have a sense of humor, too.”
