Na Na pinches her pennies

Shh… don't tell anyone I'm poor. They all think I'm living frugal and green just like everyone these days. This is a blog about a senior citizen living a frugal life, on a fixed income, in a low income food desert, and passing along knowledge from lessons learned. Some she learned from her Grandma Mama many years ago and some learned only a few days ago.

Sad for New Zealand

My heart goes out to the people of New Zealand and the families of those who were killed.  Why is there so much anger and violence in the world?  What’s fueling it?  I wish I had the answer but I don’t.  The madness needs to stop.  More and more I feel an urge to isolate myself from the world and get away from the madness.

I don’t want to distract from the sadness but this morning I’m testing the camera given to me by a reader a few weeks ago.  Its taken me quite awhile to figure out where the videos were being stored on my computer and then figure out how to retrieve them in youtube.

I hope it works.  I seriously must remember to breathe.  I have a habit of holding my breath when filming.  At least now I know it picks up sound really well if it’s picking up my breathing from a foot or so away.  Next step is to figure out how to edit my videos in youtube.   One step at a time.

    I’ve been so engrossed in following the flooding disasters here in Nebraska that I haven’t kept up with world news. At least what’s been happening here this past week is bringing people together & no one has expressed any hate for any other group, though the Indians on the reservation did try to pull the race card when told that the power company couldn’t fix their electricity simply because they couldn’t get there. I do believe that the national media loves to stir up hatred between races & groups in hope of increasing their own viewership and resulting increases to their bottom line. It’s shameful.

      I’m sorry Linda. I haven’t been keeping up with the national news so I was not aware of the flooding. Are you ok? Were you flooded? We had tornadoes and really high winds here in KY. Luckily no one hurt. I lost power for two days.

      I needed a break from all the political uproar news lately. I watched CBC news from Canada and PBS news here in the states because they have more world news. Personally I don’t think the reporters are deliberately stirring up trouble but maybe they can’t get simple answers to simple questions. I’ve watched some reporters ask a simple yes or no question and get a three minute speech but not one yes or no answer. Without reporters, even bumbling mis-informed reporters, we’d all be kept completely in the dark.

      I blame the youtube and facebook instigators on the internet for the problems. Tabloid newspapers used to be the big craze and now its the tabloid youtube videos selling all the hype. Those are the ones creating the most ciaos for ratings and followers. I caught Ladybug watching some man & woman couple pulling disgusting pranks on each other for laughs. When I say disgusting I mean really DISGUSTING. If I catch her watching that stuff again no more pad thingie allowed at my house.

    The video works good. It is a little dark so maybe use extra light next time. Great shot of your food storage.

      Yes, I really should have turned on the overhead lights but I’m trying not to use them during the day. I wasn’t actually expecting it to work. 🙂

    I wish I knew why people are increasingly ugly to each other in words and deeds. Do they not realize that the way you treat someone reveals what kind of a person you are? When I was growing up, my Dad used to say, “everyone puts on their pants one leg at a time”.

      Yup, Grandpa Papa used to say all blood is red. Sometimes the tension in the air is so thick it can almost be scooped with a spoon. Too bad it can’t be wrapped up and put into a trash can.
