You've heard of each brand, Samsung and LG. Both hail from South Korea. Both are giant companies that were barely known a couple decades ago. And in much of the market place, when buying anything electronic, it's a question of Samsung vs LG as often than not. Tell us what you think! Join Friendslr.com at https://friendslr.com/registration/
My LG tablet taking a pic of my Samsung phone shooting 3 failed LG phones
Back in the day, if you were considering a television, it was, say, RCA versus Sony. A fridge? Maybe you'd compare Kenmore vs Frigidaire. And shoot, cellphones didn't exist yet. However, today, with multinational products, shared manufacturing, and re-badging, you're not really sure who makes what you're buying. Finding any of the above products "Made in the USA" is, well, futile. Televisions made in the US, aaaaand go! Goose egg, right?
Any Samsung vs LG article must list a little background of each company. It's my article, so I make the rules, k?
This time in my blog I want to talk about SimCity Buildit club Wars. In my previous article I talked in pretty general terms about Simcity. Aspects of it, anyway, and my history with it, 30 years ago, versus now. You can read that article here.
Bucky Builder is My Name
First off, let me introduce myself. If you've read my stuff before, skip ahead a bit. I am Mayor Bucky Builder, which is my blogger name regarding Simcity Buildit blogs. My city is named Ghipaland. Ghipa is what my granddaughter calls me. The name of my SimCity Club is West Coast Rising. I am the founder and president of that club. More on that later.
All over the news lately has been the George Floyd protest riots. You can't escape it. Turn on the radio, there's some update. Radio foodie show, changed in format to cover it with the "reporter in the streets" segments and interviews.
Now, I don't get much into some topics. Race, no, politics, nuh-uh. Do I want to jamb by religious beliefs down your throat? No. I'd rather that you believe as I do, but God calls you to that, I am only support staff, if you will. Ha, and I'm not very good at that, either.
On the other hand, I am a living, breathing person who happens to know a lot of people of every persuasion, color, ethnicity, religious belief. What I can say is, you be you, and I'll be me. Yet, on this topic, with the protest riots in motion, I must stop and think about what it all means, Maybe you can too?
I'm a little late in getting the article on Memorial Day Sales vs. Meaning written, and up onto the website. Sorry.
I had planned other articles, then a Facebook post I saw sort of changed my direction. This was a person thanking a veteran for their service. Face Palm! And the veteran, like every year, thanks them back, then posts a selfie, in uniform. This always makes my head explode. It makes me yearn to leave this planet. Then, of course, are the folks who think nothing more of this day of honor as mattress sales, grilling, the start of summer, a three day weekend, ad nauseam. (For the chemically dependent in Hemet, ad nauseam means "something that has been done or repeated so often that it has become annoying or tiresome," not some new cocktail)
