    This is #46 of 53 52 episodes for 2020. Its Episode 487 and things on this show are moving and shaking into a whole new shape. We have reached week 46 of the year 2020, and we are now 36 weeks into the Rona, and back to the ‘simple 2 week lockdown' – but with an addition of being fined if you refuse to wear your mask! And here I was thinking ‘ah good, people finally seem to be waking up' – yet now here we are yet again in the twilight zone.

    The world appears to have jumped out of the pot and into the frying pan, so now is the perfect time to make yourself a little place where you can TUNE OUT for a while! It can be anywhere and anything – a blanket thrown over your couch to build a fort, in your bed with your door closed and a ‘Do Not Disturb' sign or a sock on your door, or even your car! Get into a space all your own, throw on some music and grab a book, or even throw on a book and grab a drink! Kick back, and breathe. Try to get there at least once a week, more if you can.

    If you have kids, let them know that they should only bother you if they are broken, dying, or bleeding for 1 WHOLE hour. Make your area comfy for you, and try to remove all internet AND radio with news hours while zoning out. Try to let go of everything outside of your control, and work on pestering those you know and care about to get their own Zone Out Space's started.

    Rinse and repeat as often as needed.

    We have some news from the world of WordPress for you today as well as some great plugins.

    Let's get to the fun we have today.

    This is #45 of 53 52 episodes for 2020. Its Episode 486 and things on this show are moving and shaking into a whole new Kritter. We have reached week 46 of the year 2020, and we are now 35 weeks into the Rona, and since there are still a few mom and pop shops that survived the FIRST lockdown, we need ‘obviously' to go into ANOTHER lockdown. Gotta get em all!

    The world appears to have jumped out of the pot and into the frying pan, so now is the perfect time to make yourself a little place where you can TUNE OUT for a while!

We have reached week 45 of the year 2020, and we are now 34 weeks into the Rona. The end of the year is coming up, and before we know it Christmas and New Year's will have leapt out in front of us like a deer running across the road for some fresh green grass.

    The world is like a crazy Zipper Ride from the fair left now, and so it is the perfect time to make yourself a little place where you can TUNE OUT for a while! For me it's my balcony with potted plants and a swinging bench, though it can be a blanket thrown over your couch to build a fort, in your bed with your door closed and a ‘Do Not Disturb' sign or a sock on your door, or even your car! Get into that zone out space of yours, throw on some fun music, grab a book, or even throw on a book and grab a drink! Kick back, and breathe. Try to get there at least once a week, more if you can.

    This is #43 of 52 51 episodes for 2020. Its Episode 483 and things on this show are moving and shaking into a whole new creature. We have reached week 44 of the year 2020, and we are now 33 weeks into the Rona. Interesting how USA Election week matches up with the week 33 of the Rona.

    I wanted to mention that it is now called Election WEEK because of the few states that are STILL holding back their findings of the vote count – first time in history that the count wasn't completed by 7 am of the Wednesday after Election day. There's a whole lot of things going on with the election down there – so therefore, it is an EXCELLENT time to grab up a piece of sanity for yourself AWAY from the insanity!

    Make yourself a little place where you can TUNE OUT for a while! For me, it's my balcony with potted plants and a swinging bench, though it can be a blanket thrown over your couch to build a fort, in your bed with your door closed and a ‘Do Not Disturb' sign or a sock on your door, or even in your car! Get into that zone out space of yours, throw on some fun music, grab a book, or even throw on a book and grab a drink! Kick back, and breathe. Try to get there at least once a week, more if you can.

    If you have kids, let them know that they should only bother you if they are broken, dying, or bleeding for 1 WHOLE hour. Make your area comfy for you, and try to remove all internet AND radio with news hours while zoning out. Try to let go of everything outside of your control, and work on pestering those you know and care about to get their own Zone Out Space's started.

    The Answer to Life the Universe and Everything……………………..

    This is #42 of 52 51 episodes for 2020. Its Episode 483 and we are now only 9 weeks away from the end of the year and the show is moving into new directions. We are now 43 weeks into 2020 and 32 weeks of the Rona, I find it hard to believe they are still pushing this crap on us, but I guess they need to keep the sheepole scared for the great reset.

    If you want your life and sanity back now is the time to turn away from Social Media and the M5M folks. Claim back your sanity and life. Go out into the real world without a useless paper mask, meet and talk to real humans, relax and do not be afraid.

    Find yourself an Oasis like the one at The Rogues Tavern, a place where you can check out from the world, unplug and recharge your soul.

    Heal Your Soul in a few short weeks by:

    Minimizing or eliminating your M5M exposure,

    Stop using FaceCrack

    Make your own little part of the world a better place to be.

    Inspire others around you to do the same.

    Don't worry about things you cannot control.

    Stop accepting and doing things that are not be your best interest.

    Work in your best interest while at the same time respecting and helping others, the rewards will follow.

    We have some news from the world of WordPress for you today as well as some great plugins.

Great information on plugins

I don't find all the plugins applicable (not using WooCommerce), but generally in a month there will be 1 to 3 great plugins that I will explore to see if they will fit into my sites ... also the discussion of various plugins plants seeds in my mind of what could be used in websites.

I just wanted to mention about your last contest and why I didn't enter ... I live on Bowen Island just off the coast of West Vancouver and while the plugin sounded great the maps were for the USA ... don't live there ... not sure I want to visit there anymore. I would have entered if there was an option to get the map for Canada or even BC instead of the USA.

Would love to contribute to your podcast, but currently all but one of the websites I manage are for non profits and I work on them for free ... hopefully in the future I will get some paying clients that will allow me to expand. So unfortunately all you can get from me is an iTunes review ... 5 dragons!

Keep up the great work ... love the new format and sounds.

Shadow-Allan ,

Glad I found you!!

I can't tell you the time I search through the Wordpress repository looking for plugins.
I just found you guys a few days ago and after listening to a handfull of episodes I'm hooked.
Keep up the excellent work!!!

A must listen for Wordpress users.

@pegattricks ,

Love this podcast

This is one of four podcasts I listen to every week. I am fairly new to WP-this podcast is pretty jargon free so I can understand it. It's given me lots of ideas for extending my site and has confirmed some of the plugins I like too. I agree with one of your reviewers who said it solved problems he didn't know he had.

I like the way you give back by featuring longer interviews with other developers and featuring pros who provide good service on your job board.

BTW, the sound quality is excellent! Thanks, guys.
