Is Giving Second Chances Worth It?

From Question Diary on my Android comes this:

Is Giving Second Chances Worth It? – January 29, 2019.

Depending on the person or the situation, giving someone a second chance is worth it if you want to maintain a good relationship among friends and relatives. I think I can give people a second chance if the transgression is something that can be easily forgiven.

There are times and situations where giving someone or something a second chance is out of the question. For example if someone commits a serious capital crime against another is final. No second chances… go straight to jail.

Second chances for me are often not given to products that have failed me. An example I like to point out are devices that have built in batteries that users cannot replace.

I loved my Apple iPod Touch that I bought in 2010 for $400. It worked fine for 8 years until it’s built in battery just refused to hold a charge and the device would not even play when docked into an AC powered device.
Up to that time, it was working just fine.

Bad Apple.

The battery in the iPod Touch is next to impossible to remove and replace. Apple just wants you to buy a new one. I paid $400 for this. I expected it to last a lot longer.

No second chance that I will ever buy another Apple iPod Touch or an iPhone (which I never owned).

My Number One Goal

What is your number 1 goal in life?

Simple… My number one goal right now is to survive and be inĀ good health for another year.

We’ll see if I am here in 2020.

Reboot 2019 | Are You Happy Now?

Sunrise 1-26-2019

It’s time to once again RE-BOOT this blog after months of neglect. Heh… I’ve been kind of being a little slack in my life too. Have had to cope with some life changes…. again, though none of them bad. May blog about that at a later time.

Just want to say “Happy New Year” to the few readers who may be monitoring this blog and to anyone who stumbles in. December 30, 2018 marked the third year since my surgery back in 2015. I am still here and happy to be alive.

In an effort to make this blog regular and relevant again I am going to be posting answers to questions from an Android app that I just downloaded yesterday. It is called Questions Diary and every day you are supposed to answer a question about yourself. The answer is saved to your device and at the end of one year, the app is supposed to ask the same questions again…. so let’s start… here is the first question.

Are You Happy Now?

Pedometer Image

Some of the recorded walk steps from this morning with the Pedometer app running on my low end Alcatel device. The count is only for the return trip back to my home.

Generally speaking, I am “happy”. Happiness is relative, fleeting at times. One surely can’t be happy all of the time. Life is filled with setbacks. These can happen frequently…. death in the family. loss of a job, financial struggles and more.

Still I try to maintain some level of happiness by being with or talking to friends and relatives. Engaging in hobbies or taking short trips makes me happy. I am most happy when I am out observing my world and documenting it through photography and video.

Distracting myself is a way for me to maintain some level of happiness.


With this first post, this hopefully is the start of something new and consistent. Otherwise here are a couple of other pictures:
