Are you on the Twitter? If so, you’ve probably noticed hashtags. They’re those words or phrases lumped together without spaces that always follow a pound sign (#). That symbol turns them into a search tool of sorts, allowing users to find what other Twitter users have tweeted while using the...

The famous film critic Roger Ebert lost his long, cruel battle with cancer this past week. He died on Thursday at age 70, just days after writing what turned out to be his final blog post that talked about a new cancer scare. Ebert penned 10,000 movie reviews during his...

Happy Easter, everyone! Easter is the day, for those who aren’t familiar with the religious significance of the day, on which Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ who died on a cross three days before rising from the dead.

With my current blog design — one that I hope will be my only blog design for some time to come — I decided to get a bit strategic, especially with regard to the categories on the big black navigation bar just below the logo at the top of the...

In Ireland, the color associated with St. Patrick is blue, not green. But Patrick’s Place is headquartered in the USA, so green it is for anything resembling a St. Patrick’s Day celebration. This week, since there are so many shades of green to choose from, I thought a good topic...

Since cell phones began adding cameras as standard features, it has made snapping photos easier, and digital photography much more accessible.

Of course, there are the traditional digital cameras (and old-school film cameras) that photography enthusiasts add to...

We all grew up with television shows that we didn’t like to miss. I remember so many great television shows at time when there were fewer channels, yet more worth watching than we seem to have now. What are the shows you remember most fondly from your childhood? One of...

This past week, in honor of Valentine’s Day, CBS This Morning interviewed radio talk show host Delilah, who joked that The Wind Beneath My Wings was one of those sappy love songs she wouldn’t mind taking a break from. But there are far worse picks for sappiest — or generally just...

Last week, I gave my picks for all-time favorite Super Bowl commercials prior to this year’s game. That post was easy, because I had several years’ worth of spots to work with. So, now that we have another big showdown under our belts, it’s time to figure out which ones...

For people who aren’t particularly that into football, some will still watch the Super Bowl because of the commercials. So this week, I decided to post my favorite Super Bowl spots. The list may change after I see tonight’s game, of course. I’ve already seen the new Budweiser ad featuring...

Given that this past week was the holiday honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I thought I would post a list of favorite quotations from the civil rights leader. The challenge is to choose only seven that really resonate. There are so many more than that, and narrowing it down...
