Contemplating the Content

Posted Saturday, January 5, 2013, at 12:09 PM

What to write about? Numerous times in the past several weeks I have plopped down with the laptop and typed. Then I would delete. Then I would type and I would delete. I decided I should make a list of potential topics and see if that would spark anything.

Resolutions? No since I don't go there.

Work? Can't. Confidentiality and all. I enjoy being employed.

Fiscal Cliff? Politely as I can. NO! Hopefully the 113th Congress will find the definition of compromise and non-partisanship helpful but I will not hold my breathe.

TV Shows? Cable show maybe. Duck Dynasty is a hoot and we have been watching that lately. We do the usual channel surfing and I do the usual catching up on General Hospital thanks to the DVR.

Restaurants? Maybe.

Food/drink? Probably. Received some very luscious wines during the holidays. Crown Royal Maple Syrup is pretty tasty as is Black Velvet Toasted Caramel.

National news stories? Ambivalent - except for a couple and I can't find the correct tone. (Remember the delete comment above.)

Technology? Maybe. I am liking my Kindle. We received a Garmin as a present and that is fun. I don't have a 'smart' phone so I don't have any apps to share.

Family? Maybe.

Religion? Not a subject I tackle. I will leave that to the more faithful.

Weather? Why when we have the Weather Channel.

Health? Could do some topics on PD (Parkinson's Disease) or aging female issues. (Did anyone else hear my family groan on that one?)

Genealogy? Likely.

Global warming? I got nothing.

Shopping? Good fall back topic.

Photography? Hobby related - maybe.

Sports? Again, I got nothing.

Retirement? No such luck. When asked by a pension rep in the last few months, what my target retirement date is, I replied 'when I die.' I thought it was funny but apparently he didn't see the humor because he actually made me pick a projected date.

That is a workable list at this point. I will have to see what I come up with next time. Thanks for stopping by the Blurbs.
