Elitist Aliens? UFO Abductors Finally Turn Their Backs on Rural Working Class!

Moreauville, LA-  “I was heading up State Route 1 from Baton Rouge, after visiting my sister and her kids. It was getting pretty late, and I’d had a couple of brews before I’d left, so when I seen the bright light appear in the sky above, I thought my eyes were just playing tricks on me. It wouldn’t be the first time.”

Meet Roger Kosnik, a handyman man from central Louisiana who claims that he was nearly abducted by a UFO late, last Thursday night.

“My truck all of the sudden died, then I was blasted with a bright blue light. Musta been a tractor beam or something, ’cause I felt the suspension of the Dodge give, then we started to lift off the ground.”

I asked Roger if he had been abducted by an UFO.

Ten Thousand Emails In – I Think GDPR Might Be Important

If you’re anything like me, then you tend to stay the course for the sake of simplicity above all else. If you’re anything like me, you also have a couple of different websites set up as a side project for your writing jobs. If you’re anything like me, you might have received so many emails about GDPR that you wrote them off as spam or some sort of unimportant development which only concerns those in the EU. Thing is, if you’re anything like me, you might have made a terrible mistake.

Oh God, Oh No

As it turns out, the General Data Protection Regulations are a little more ranging than my hubris had anticipated, so let’s take a look at just how deeply I dug my own hole. These regulations, as it turns out, are not only very real, they introduce elements into data regulation which help protect, generally (a possible explanation for the name?) While the regulations put in place do primarily apply to the EU, they also apply to any website or business which operates within the European Union – meaning all globally-reaching online services need to pay attention.

Top 3 Essential Steps for Outstanding Sanding (From James Draper!)

Sanding is hard. That’s the general reaction people give me whenever I talk to them about it. Sanding has really gotten an infamous reputation over the years due to inexperienced people diving into a complex piece (like an intricately detailed chair or cabinet) without knowing the basics and by using the wrong machine, leading to a long and difficult sanding process that yields not so great results. Learning how to sand properly is an incredible way to save money as you can turn old beaten up furniture into brand new beautiful pieces instead of buying a new set or you can even sell them for profit! The only thing stopping you is the dread of sanding due to everyone telling you it’s hard and boring. Read more Top 3 Essential Steps for Outstanding Sanding (From James Draper!)
