Net Neutrality is Under Attack


Net Neutrality is Under Attack. Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T want to end net neutrality so they can control what we see & do online. First, they want to gut FCC rules. Then, they plan to pass bad legislation that allows extra fees, throttling & censorship. Read more at Battleforthenet.com

The new chairman of the FCC was a top lawyer at Verizon. And now he’s calling for a vote to kill net neutrality, as a gift to his former employer. So on December 7th protests will be held outside Verizon retail stores across the U.S. to demand that Congress stop the FCC from destroying the Internet as we know it.

1996 Honda Accord


This video was made by Max Lanman for his girlfriend to help sell her 1996 Honda Accord. According to posts on Youtube, he had the car on eBay and it reached $150,000 but was canceled by eBay for unknown reasons.

Recently Carmax made a video offering to buy the car for $20,000 which in itself is very funny. They did point out that the cat is optional.

Wilson North Carolina Whirligig Festival 2017

Wilson North Carolina whirligig festival 2017

The Wilson North Carolina Whirligig Festival 2017 is an annual art and crafts festival held November 4 – 5, in Wilson, NC. The festival began as the Golden Leaf Festival celebrating the history of tobacco in Wilson.

Over time the festival shifted focus and transformed into an energetic downtown street festival focusing on arts and whirligigs! Whirligigs are whimsical, wind-driven works of art that dot the landscape around downtown Wilson. They are created by local folk-artist Vollis Simpson. Try to picture in your mind a moving mobile of spinning parts and pieces, about the size of a four-door car!
