Join Us in the Fight For Net Neutrality


Learn How Net Neutrality Will Affect You Personally.
WordPress blogger Paul Sieminski, reports on how the Internet, as we know it will never be the same, if we let it. Read the article, and express your feelings on net neutrality. #netneutrality #brouhahaaccess

“Net Neutrality” is the simple but powerful principle that cable and broadband providers must treat all internet traffic equally. Whether you’re loading a blog post on WordPress.com, streaming House of Cards on Netflix, or browsing handcrafted tea cozies on Etsy, your internet provider can’t degrade your connection speed, block sites, or charge a toll based on the content that you’re viewing.

Net neutrality has defined the internet since its inception, and it’s hard to argue with the results: the internet is the most powerful engine of economic growth and free expression in history. Most importantly, the open internet is characterized by companies, products, and ideas that survive or fail depending on their own merit — not on whether they have preferred deals in place with a broadband service provider. Unfortunately, the principle of net neutrality, and the open internet that we know and love, is under attack.

The train ride to Venice...two perspectives.

The train ride was too long, about 6 hours…but the girls couldn’t wait for it to be over. My hubby took the time to enjoy the passing scenery. Now the adventures once we got to Venice that’s another story!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Focus


Focusing is not always easy to do especially when you have other things catching your eye. As one gets older it is easy to look back and focus on the things we should have done. However the past is the past, and the only changes we can make now is in the present which puts focus on our future. So focus on your present because this will not fix the past but at least you won’t repeat it (or at least we hope not to). I hope you enjoy the images I started to focus on in my life, and may you find yours in time.

Some art is strange and makes you think. I always winder what might be going through the artist mind in some cases.

Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot-Two ways about it


Amsterdam, brouhaha-access, transportation
In Amsterdam the tram is one of the easiest and inexpensive ways to travel. However, if you want the true Dutch experience-ride a bike! then hold on tight and pedal, pedal, pedal.

Taking sunday walks in Europe is the thing to do when you want some quality time in your relationship. Although stores are closed, food establishments and clubs are not. Nothing is more romantic than window shopping through cobbled stone streets.

The human brain is fascinating in that it can process so many things at once. However, the best way to take things in is to slow down and see the world from all angles.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece

Masterpieces are not hard to find. It’s just that we need to slow down enough to appreciate them. My favorite part about Europe is how much they love to display their art around the city. You could stroll down a small residential alley way just to find a masterpiece when rounding the corner.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour Is the Moment We Exhale


the rainbow the universal sign of "hope".
The rainbow. The universal sign of “hope”.

There is always a time in the day, week, or month when we stop what we’re doing and exhale. In this moment we become more observant and see what we might have missed in our daily lives. I saw this rainbow after waking from a mid-afternoon nap. I woke  opening my window to see the rainbow streaked sky. It was a nice view to wake up to, and as I stood there for a few moments more I thought of all the other people who might be seeing the same sight. I wondered what this sight of a rainbow meant to them? What feelings it might evoke. Hope? Beauty? Mythical beings that may or may not exist?

Exhale, but remember to enjoy the next intake of breath then exhale. Each new breath clarifies the mind to enjoy the world around us.
