This is my second blog.

My first blog chronicled my experiences over three years caring for my dad as he lived through and finally died from Alzheimer's. That is the book that is for sale.

This second blog kind of chronicles of life, what it is like to start your life over in your late 50's. After caretaking, you are damaged, file bankruptcy, and the world doesn't care what you did. After 8 months of unemployment, you wake each day knowing the world doesn't want you. Finally you do find a job, 5 weeks before homelessness, but doing what you did 30 years ago and getting paid what you did 30 years ago. So this is starting over.

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

Well, it's geek dreaming time; Apple is going to announce all the new products in a couple of weeks and the rumor mills are ablaze with stories of products, pictures, and software.

Now what I am about to tell you is simply the ramblings of a no named internet blogger with few readers, well few real readers, and millions of imaginary readers.

I'm not going to speculate specifically on the products that I know absolutely nothing about, but I will let you in a little secret: all the rumors of what is coming - are coming straight from Apple.  So what you see in the rumors articles the last three months is exactly what you are going to get with a couple of surprises kept secret.

Why do I know this?  Because all companies have learned to control the rumor mill.  They have to control the rumor mill because so many billions of dollars are riding on things, CEO jobs and options are riding on stock performance, and they vultures will need to be kept at bay.

Let's say Apple didn't control the rumor mill, or Samsung or Google or Microsoft or all the other techy toy makers.  Then more and more things would be suggested and then other lazy writers would just copy and paste other peoples theories and before you know it the next great thing would have to be as big as a car to have all the things in it that all the writers and bloggers came up with.

Then, when the product is released and doesn't clean the kitchen sink while you are making a call and the algorithms are day trading options for you automatically, well the vultures will swarm and say what a disappointment the new device is because it doesn't regulate global warming while tracking the implanted chips in your kids.

Stock price crashes, people don't stand in line, CEO doesn't get his vestments and a new CEO will be named.

However, smart company drones with MBA's from the best named schools realized if they control the rumors, release the pictures like it's a big secret or something, then people buy into it and by the time the day comes to release the device, everyone knows what will be in it plus a surprise or two that was held back.  No one will be expecting something that won't be in the device.  All the writers look brilliant, the company looks brilliant for coming up with what the experts predicted.

So, in a couple of weeks, new iPhones with bigger screens will be announced, new iPads with a 12 inch screen will be announced, the new iWatch will be announced, just like all the bloggers and tech writers are suggesting, fed the information from a group with Apple who's purpose is to release and control such things.

Just like all major companies have, from drug companies to tech companies, we are fed the information they want us to have and like little rats we run around believing it.  Our government feeds us false statistics with fake unemployment numbers to hide the 10's of millions of unemployed while hiding the 10's of millions of more illegal aliens than they will admit to being.  Have you seen the absolute slap down destruction of the whole global warming data that has been done?  The manipulation of stats to hide a criminally coverup the fact that it's all a sham and are paid millions each year by the government to foster the lie, and how numb nuts, my dad's favorite name for Obama, is about to slam thru a UN climate treaty on us without congressional approval all based on fake data.

Everything you see on TV and read is a lie.  Why bother reading?  Well, except my blog.

Standing by the ocean watch it tear away the shore
Glide out upon the desert, the horizon is the door
And though your voice is shouting above the wind it can't be heard
Drop all sense of reason, it's there you'll find your own worth
And though you are surrounded, feeling quite alone
There's a light to guide you home

If you stand with your face to the wind off the water
At the point of lands end where the ocean begins
Look to the memory of the ones gone before
The light and meaning of the voices on the wind
