    Ambers' Rant:

    This is #23 of 52 episodes for 2021. Its Episode 515, and summer is well and truly working it's way into our daily lives! No more feeling like a zombie – except on those inevitable cloudy days. Though some of those cloudy days feel like a thunder – lightning storm is going to rear it's head, it never seems to here on the island. I wish we had more thunder – lightning storms here – I remember seeing an amazing one when I was in New Zealand, rolling in over the water. We never get weather like that here… ah well.

    Despite us never really getting really cool thunder lightning storms here on the island though, we do get pretty good weather here – and I recommend you get out and take advantage of it while it lasts! Spend some time in the great outdoors with a friend, or even on your own; turn off that media and give yourself a break! No radio, no Internet, just relaxation of the mind and exorcise of the body!

    If you can't make it outside for whatever reason, try just opening a window and turning off the media for about an hour every day. Read one of those books you likely got kicking around collecting dust! I'll bet you a beer it helps!

    Rinse and repeat as often as needed.

    -Anyone out there experience the internet going down this last Tuesday (June 8)? Here's an article as to why almost all of the internet went down on Tuesday. The culprit being pointed to is CDN's (Content Delivery networks and what they are here) supported by Fastly. Things only went down for about an hour, but for companies like Amazon and Dliveroo, that hour was rather costly – and it was disconcerting to the rest of us.

    Ambers' Rant:

    This is #22 of 52 episodes for 2021. Its Episode 514, which in numerology equals 1! The meaning for 1 in numerology essentially stands for self sufficiency, new beginnings, lack of fear in learning and exploring to obtain your goals. I personally feel that this is a fantastic number to have for a show at this time of year! What with spring slowly turning into summer, greenery popping up everywhere and the sun heating everything up!

    It almost feels like this island is taking a collective breath of relief. Time to start getting back out into the world and experiencing life again! And whether you get back to experiencing life in the great outdoors with a friend or on your own, be sure to turn off the media! No radio, no Internet, just good conversation if you got a friend along, or the music of the world around ya!

    If you can't make it outside due to being crazy busy, maybe just open a window and turn off the media for about an hour every day. I'll bet you a beer that it helps!

    Rinse and repeat as often as needed.

    Ujwal Thapa, co-founder of WordPress Nepal Community has passed this last week. This is a link that talks a little bit about him for those who were aware of and/or knew him.

    Google's Chrome Canary now has a feature flag to allow users to opt out – Chrome Canary is the raw and unfinished browser of the Chrome we know and love, and the fact that there is a feature flag allowing users to opt out is, in my opinion, a positive thing! Perhaps the opt out flag showing up here means that we will see it in the fully completed Chrome sooner than we had hoped!

    Heads up for everyone using Windows – unveiling of new Windows is coming on June 24th! They are being a bit hush-hush about what the new version will have in it, but there are rumours that it will have dual screen features in it, as that is something they were focusing on with Windows 10X before they shut that down.

    This is #21 of 52 episodes for 2021. Its Episode 513, and things are looking pretty cool in the tech world! I mean, a flying car?!? Well, apparently it glides, for a bit. But still! I think that's super cool. You'll find the link in the extra news section.

    I hope everyone out there is able to get out and breathe some fresh air! The weather around here has been a wee bit gloomy this last week, but the sun bravely popped out for a couple of days there! Living on an island, I think it is always a good idea to take in the sunshine as much as possible whenever you can. Just be sure to bring along a coat; while bringing along that coat, why not bring a book, or some music? Find a place in the great outdoors somewhere to sit back and chill, catch up on a podcast or even just look up and see if you can catch one of those pyramid shaped UFO's that are taking the Internet by storm!

    Just remember to stay away from the media for a little while at least once a day.

    This is #20 of 52 episodes for 2021. Its Episode 512, and it appears we are going to get a little bit of freedom back! Not sure for how long, but the CDC has recently announced that there is no need for masks anymore! The big box stores are dropping the mask mandates, and the media is talking about how to ‘re-wire your brain' so that you can more easily accept ‘the mask-less' as a non threat!

    I hope everyone out there is able to get out and breathe some fresh air! The weather is rather unpredictable, but that's really no biggy; just bring an umbrella and a sweater wherever you go, and you're good to go! Along with those two weather preparation items, why not bring a book, or some music? Find a place in the great outdoors somewhere to sit back and chill, catch up on a podcast or even just look up and see if you can catch one of those pyramid shaped UFO's that are taking the internet's by storm!

    This is #19 of 52 episodes for 2021. Its Episode 511, and things are looking pretty good outside! All except for the Scotch Broom, which seems to have taken over every single hill in my area… it's really no wonder I'm waking up feeling like I have a cold every morning lately. Thank goodness for allergy medicine!

    I hope everyone out there is managing to get out and enjoy the better weather that is slowly coming our way! If you live by some trees, or some type of water whether it be fresh or salt, start taking your lunch break to go out and just sit quietly by tress and/or water. Throw on some music, read a book, have a coffee or a tea, and just soak in that vitamin D. Whether you work from home or in an office, getting yourself outside once a day is even better than hiding away in a chill out zone inside. The fresh air and sunshine on your skin refreshes and energizes you like nobodies business! And bonus, you don't need to remember to turn off social media or the news when you go for a walk, it's just simply not there.

    Just remember to ignore your phone for that little bit of your day.

    Ambers' Rant:

    This is #18 of 52 episodes for 2021. Its Episode 510! And if you add these three numbers up in the way of numerology, you get 4! Cool right? I bring this up because 4 is SUCH an interesting number! In many cultures, it's a number of stability and solidity, of justice and completion – and yet in many other cultures, 4 has the meaning of death, suffering, and bad luck. 4 is my favorite number, I try to use it as much as possible. Well, I have two favorite numbers – 4 and 13. Although 13 = 4, so really it's the same number. Four is such an enigma of a number, carrying these completely opposite meanings within it – rather similar to humans really.

    I know there are quite a few other number enigmas in the number world, but I have always found 4 to be especially fascinating. I am also intrigued by numerology's ability to be rather accurate – though you need to be very particular in completing a numerology chart for that outcome. And that can take hours – which could be a great way to spend your hour a day for a while! Spending an hour a day learning numerology could make you a rather apt numerologist at the end of a month! Great thing to get the kids involved with too. Numerology is like finding hidden meanings everywhere – words, names, dates, addresses, etc. Also, it's a sneaky way to get the kids to practice math. It's such a different way of doing math from the norm, I'll bet they don't even realize how fast they are getting at adding while searching for all those hidden meanings.

    Be sure to turn off the social media though, otherwise you won't be able to add up anything!

Plugin Catalog

I love this show for the plugins and how they rate the plugin. Lots of information about plugins. Only part that is not clear is the names of some plugins. Sometimes I’ll search for the name they give on Wordpress and I can’t find it.

Plenty o' Plugins

I've been following this podcast for several months. Though I only support one website I have found several plugins that added features or helped me process things better.Good Job!

Too many interviews

Used to love the show. Went back and listened to all episodes from beginning. Was very helpful and insightful. New format not as helpful. Old show - 5 star. Now - 2 star, at best. Not going to listen any more. There are other shows more interesting now.
