Daily Prompt: Which Side Of The Camera?


Daily Prompt: Tables Turned

Are as comfortable in front of a camera as behind one?
Being written about, as well as writing?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us DISCOMFORT.

I am actually quite shy by nature till I get to know someone.  
I am always the one behind the camera.
Since I am married to a non shy hubby, he is always in the limelight.

A Call From My Hubby’s Nephew


My hubby has a special nephew.
He can be a bit overwhelming at times.
He is now in his thirties.  He lives with his mom and grandparents.
My hubby says that I am funny when I deal with him.
I insist that he uses respect.
His family says that he can’t remember from day to day.
I disagree.
It is funny that he can now remember that when I answer the phone, the only way he can speak with his uncle is to call him by Uncle, not his first name.
When I answer, he knows that if he does not, he will not talk to him.

Today he called with the request for me to look up a word and give him the definition.
The word was does.
Forty five minutes later, I hung up the telephone knowing that he finally understood the meaning.

clock ticking

I took the time with him, using the word in sentences.
I also got across the point of various tenses, pronouns and verbs associated that were confusing him.
I did not have to do this.
I could have just hung up the phone after I told him his uncle was sleeping.

It did not take away from my day at all to spend the 45 minutes with him.
He was happy when he hung up.
He was no longer aggrivated like he had been when he first called.
I never asked why he needed to know.
I decided that the can of worms that had brought on the frustration just needed to be calmed.

By his being satisfied with the answer, his day will now be better.
He will have a calmer day.

In turn, so will the others who live with him.
Why this could not have been done on his end remains a mystery.

Perhaps a dictionary for Christmas will be a nice gift.

Since we did not get the email from Su Ho Woo till really late at night I had waiting till this morning to update on his status.

Here is the note that he sent us:

We wish him well on his journey.  We are praying for his safety and that people will meet him and be kind.
We are glad that he found another bicyclist to spend some time with.
This will encourage him to carry on and finish his journey to Los Angeles California.

The one candid appearance of me lol was at the Korean Restaurant “New Korean Restaurant” in Clarksville, Tennessee.
I am usually the one taking the pictures.

That makes for very few pictures of myself in my gallery.

Till the next time,

Daily Prompt: Regulations on Face Book


Daily Prompt: Freedom of Facebook

Facebook has recently come under attack for failing to enforce its own guidelines on hate speech and violent imagery.

oops

Face Book

Is it a website’s job to moderate the content its users post, or should users have complete freedom? 

That is an intriguing question.  I have tried to post a few videos from You Tube that are on our own site and Face Book has come back and told me no.  I thought that there was monitoring of the website.  Did the people who used to monitor have to find a new job?  There is a filter that is available for the site whereas you can block out certain items such as nudity and pornography or violence.  Has this filter been removed?

Is there a happy medium?

There is usually a happy medium to all situations.  It may not be the expected outcome, yet a compromise on all sides does help the situation.

If so, how would you structure it?  

Hiring more employees who have a specific job might be a great place to start.  I understand cross training as it helps a company when it loses employees and someone else is pretrained in that field.  The employee can slide into the alternate position with ease and not feel the pressure of a new job.  The company continues to run efficiently.  Perhaps Face Book should look at how the employees are structured and look at a new scheme in the work place.  Losing 15 to 20 employees at the same time does hurt a company.  That is when restructure is necessary.

It might mean that the CEO and the Board take a few less vacations abroad.  They might want to listen to their employees and see where the internal problems lie.  That seems like a smart place to start.

Road Trip A-Z Challenge So Ho Woo at Dinner & Departure


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

We decided to treat Su Ho Woo to some authentic Korean food so we took him to a local restaurant in our area for a buffet where he could get everything from fresh seafood to Kimchi. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kimchi

The New Korean Restaurant is located at 2030 Ft. Campbell Blvd in Clarksville, TN and their number is (931) 645-6479  since you can do dine in or carry out.  They are open seven days a week.  Monday – Thursday 11-10, Friday and Saturday 11-11 and Sunday 1-9.

I will let the pictures do the talking for me.

CIMG0093 CIMG0094 CIMG0095 CIMG0096 CIMG0097 CIMG0098 CIMG0099 CIMG0100 CIMG0101 CIMG0102

It was good to the last drop.  We came home and sat around a fire in the pit that is on our back patio until time to go to bed, just discussing the different cultures and various topics.

This morning, I made sure that he had a big breakfast to start him out on his journey

CIMG0105

Along with juice, eggs and toast he was set to prepare for his journey.

CIMG0103 CIMG0104

Hubby and Su Ho Woo went over his travel route so that he would know what elements and conditions he could expect.  Also what routes to follow that would make his journey easier.

CIMG0106 CIMG0107 CIMG0108 CIMG0109 CIMG0110 CIMG0111 CIMG0112 CIMG0113CIMG0121CIMG0122

Just before his departure he surprised us both with a gift and something to always remember him by.

CIMG0123 CIMG0124 CIMG0125 CIMG0126 CIMG0127

We miss his presence already and wish him a safe journey on his quest.  He is going to try and check in every so often to send me pictures and keep us updated so that I can blog about his progress across the USA to Los Angeles California.

Should you see a lone biker out there with flags, stop and say hello.  That might just make their day.  It might enrich your life more than theirs.
May we show him kindness the entire way of his trip.

God Bless him for his quest and for what it stands for.

Road Trip A-Z Challenge Day 17


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

This afternoon, while my husband was on his way to the local store, he passed a biker on the side of the road.  Many people during the course of the day, I am certain passed this same biker and thought nothing of it.  My hubby quickly ran his errands and then proceeded to find the biker on his way home.

What had caught the attention of my hubby was the small flags that were flying on on back of the bicycle.  He invited him to join us in our home for the evening.

His name is SuHo Woo.  He is riding from Washington D. C. to Los Angeles California on his bicycle to signify the need for peace in South Korea.

He is soon to be 30 yrs. of age.  He is fascinating to sit down and converse with.  Only certain sections of the country have given him a cold shoulder and have not shown a welcome hospitality to him.  Shame on them.  They are the ones who missed out.

CIMG2654

He is a true gentleman in all aspects of the word.  Very polite and respectful.  He had lunch with us of pulled pork, southern baked beans and southern potato salad from a local restaurant.  He was able to taste some real Southern style foods that come directly from our area.  Davie’s Hot House B- B -Q (1754 Woodlawn Rd, Clarksville, TN 37042) if you happen to come to the outskirts of Clarksville and are hungry some time.  They are only open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Plan accordingly.

CIMG2655 CIMG2656 CIMG2657

This is going to be a long journey for this young man.  It is a way for him to clear his head and look bright into the future.  He has overcame back injury through exercise and the biking is something that he truly enjoys.

CIMG2658 CIMG2659 CIMG2660

He also has his camera so while I was snapping shots, I had to capture memories of today for him as well.  Tonight we are taking him to a local Korean Restaurant as a treat.  My hubby is just as excited as Su Ho Woo.  It is one of my hubby’s favorite places to go.  I will be taking pictures throughout the meal and will blog about it upon our return.

He is staying the night with us and will continue on his journey after I have fed him a hearty breakfast to give him plenty of energy for his ride.

Best of luck to Su Ho Woo and his journey as well as the cause that he rides for.

Till after Dinner,

Tammye Honey

Road Trip A-Z Challenge Day 16

Sixteen days on the road is a long trip.  Since I had planned for this to be a cross country trip in a way, to last at least 30 days that would put us at our road marker of the midpoint.

My grander scheme was to do this for a year.  I am not certain if I have the steam to do that.  Time will tell.  Can I make it interesting and vibrant enough  to keep readers attention and drive to want to come back each day to see where it has gone or will they fade from boredom?

My first stop is a blog site that is new to me and I have enjoyed the wonderful photography:

http://jennifernicholewells.com/ Check her out as she has been Freshly Pressed.

Next stop is a shout out to someone who wrote a poem to his wife as a gift for their anniversary:

http://ivonprefontaine.com/2013/05/22/marriage/ I felt compelled to mention that as the Daily Prompt today was about “Jealousy” and there is obviously nothing like that going on in their strong relationship.

Our Next stop is some more great photography:

http://carolwelsh.wordpress.com/ She never ceases to amaze me with her work.

Great reading ahead as we make our next stop so hold on to your seat:

http://whoatethedaisies.wordpress.com/ Not giving it away, you have to go see.

http://revisedgewater.wordpress.com/ Told you not telling…

http://stuphblog.wordpress.com/ I will say with this one I am glad that the YouTube Tuesday is back…There are great articles also.

For a blog site that has only been around since August of this Year, lets give a warm welcome to:

http://khanasweb.com Welcome aboard and may you have many blessed years of  Writing and Photography in your future.

Well that will do it for today as I have an article to write about why my stuff has been so short…allergies…

Till tomorrow…when we are on the road again…
