Other than the fact that he was the Governor of Maryland,
I don’t know too much about Martin O’Malley.

So I did a quick Google for his campaign Website.
This is what I was FACED with. Amused me.

For a better view of his bum — and I have never been able to tell whether a MAN’S BUM is cute or otherwise given I am not a bum person in general — click image to access … (come on did you think I would be that puerile?)

Am I SUPPOSED to check out his bum? Honestly? I really am confused. Very strange picture. Yes, yes, I understand (especially since I have covered this ‘so called bus driver’ issue as it relates to priests performing the Catholic Mass), but this is V. strange. What do YOU think?

Credit card chip enforcement (EMV).

Now that credit card chip enforcement (EMV) — i.e., insert vs. swipe — is in use have you noticed that it is taking 30 to 40 seconds LONGER for each transaction to be authorized. At least that has been my experience at Walmart — one of the FEW retailers, around here, that have moved to ‘insert’. Maybe that is just teething troubles during this first month. But then again it could be that the additional processing, which why we have a chip on the card in the first place, will always take longer — though possibly, with luck, not 30 to 40 seconds longer.

Unless we are travelling I don’t do too many credit card transactions a day (compared to others that work in a city or go shopping at Malls on a regular basis). But let’s say we, on average, do 4 credit card transactions a day. The extra 30 seconds would then translate to 2 minutes a day of WASTED time where we are hanging around, in front of a credit card machine, waiting to complete our transactions. That is a pretty amount of time — in my book. But let’s work this out. 2 minutes a day is 14 minutes a week. Now you have to admit that that is starting to get your attention.

1 WHOLE HOUR A Month!

1 whole hour.

That is 1/2 a Day each year.

A full day every 2 years.

Get the drift. This is NOT good. As some of you know I have a phobia about wasted time. Time is my greatest and most valuable possession. I really resent my time being wasted.

So a BIG heads up.

Check this INFOGRAPHIC about how much time we already spend inline — just on vacation. Credit card insertion will ADD to that!

Netflix balming credit card insertions for their DROP in U.S. revenues AMUSED ME — and I am a NFLX shareholder (and I own more than a couple).

Read between the lines.

This is what I think they are saying. There was a LOT of fraudulent credit card transactions on Netflix!

The chip-based cards are weeding out some of this FRAUD. That I think is the real cause.

hassasnfornhThis was said to have been the first fund raiser for the Governor as ‘Maggie Hassan for New Hampshire‘. I don’t want to divulge too much and as such will only say that it was held in the ‘Lakes’ and was attended by about 90 people. It was a very convivial and congenial with oodles of optimism and gunho. It was very uplifting. We were glad to have been invited. We are very fond of the Governor and was glad to help. Yes, she can count on our support.

The Governor looked a million dollars and I am hoping that she will raise many a million for her worthy campaign.
