Found this from an article on ways to stay connected even if the phone service goes down – can be found on app stores –

FireChat – Open Garden

FIRECHATFireChat is a free peer-to-peer messaging app that works with or without Internet access or cellular data to send text and images.

FireChat is a new way to chat “off the grid” but caution is advised

https://www.engadget.com/2014/03/20/firechat-is-a-new-way-to-chat-off-the-grid-but-caution-is-advi/

It shows you other people who are local to you, say on the same camping trip, and you can chat or share images using Apple’s Multipeer Connectivity Framework, which can use WiFi or Bluetooth to connect two or more devices.

The app also lets you use standard Internet connectivity to participate in a running conversation with FireChat users anywhere in the world.

[ . . . ]

The idea of FireChat is good, set up a quick ad-hoc network for an event and chat away with no setup or complicated configuration. But the global chat needs an off button, and I think for even the local chats you should be able to filter out abusers.

(Short article – worth going over to read all of it.)

Hurricane Update Sites – Hurricane Florence

Tags

, , , , ,

I noticed one of the statements in an article written about Hurricane Florence yesterday noted that the storm surge is running 300 miles in front of the storm. That would mean the storm surge starts about 20 hours ahead of Hurricane Florence getting to the coast. It is an interesting fact and could be life threatening long before arrival of the actual hurricane force winds and rain.

These links were great places to see the most current information about Hurricane Florence and other hurricanes. It would be great if everyone were willing and able to move out of harm’s way with this much notice about the storm’s strength and path, but many people in North Carolina and South Carolina coastal areas are not leaving – maybe as much as half of the residents in some areas expected to be hard hit, are actually staying to try and ride out the storm. That is sad to see happen once again.

Anyway, here are the sites that have current Hurricane Florence info –

About CricketDiane –

“It is better to make the effort to move forward and release the flow of ideas to work with them and do things creatively, create things and invent and write and make – I definitely know that by experience.” – cricketdiane, 2018

Little Donnie Dare Trump limericks for the Resistance – SecondCivilWarLetters 4th of July 2018

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Little Donnie Dare

Grew up without a care,

He went to DC

To rattle a tree.

**

Then Donnie got there

They made fun of his hair,

They laughed at his wife

And made lots of strife.

**

Little Donnie Dare

Has never once played fair,

He thinks its a breeze

With no one to please.

**

Most days, Donnie Dare

Makes another nightmare,

He took all that he got

From those he made rot.

**

Little Donnie Dare

Never learned how to share,

He tells only lies

Accuses and spies.

**

It’s not Donnie Dare

Whose life will compare,

Since very bad things

Is all that it brings.

**

Never Donnie Dare

Will know how to care,

Never does he feel

The hurt of the deal.

**

Little Donnie Dare

Stole a very big Chair,

With ego and wit

He was a big twit.

**

Little Donnie Dare

With a smile and a glare,

Rode on the free press

To make such a mess.

**

When will Donnie Dare

Know shame and despair?

From ears to dead feet

He thought it was neat.

**

Little Donnie Dare

With pretty golden hair,

His ego and greed

Serve only his need.

**

Big man Donnie Dare

With butt cheeks au pair,

Believes all the praise

In hopes of their raise.

**

If asked, Donnie Dare

Says those are not rare,

That everyone loves

His vile, little shoves.

**

Little Donnie Dare

Loves his bleach blonde hair,

It goes with his tan

That’s never seen sand.

**

Lying Donnie Dare

Thinks people will not care,

Who all could have known

He’d make him a throne.

**

You’ll find Donnie Dare

In a president’s Chair,

But the chair he took,

Has everyone shook.

**

Because Donnie Dare

Stole every prayer,

That everyone had

Against something bad.

**

Little Donnie Dare

Now cruel as a bear,

Rightful King is he

Says his mind and deed.

**

Listen Donnie Dare

This nation is a share,

There’s no king spot here

We hold freedom dear.

**

Greedy Donnie Dare

We know you’re on a tear,

We are a nation

Who’ll change your station.

**

Big Man Donnie Dare

With cruelty to spare,

From up at the top

We forced him to stop.

**

And now Donnie Dare

Who mocked all our prayer,

Found out there’s a God

And trump it is not.

**

Little Donnie Dare

Became big man up there,

To DC, he went

Their money he spent.

**

Could not afford to care

Big Donnie neither

Lying, ranting tweeter.

Trump Anger Management Project

Fourth of July for #SecondCivilWar – sorry, bad twitter joke from the last couple days.

Added this effort today, been working on it several days, hand writing the notes and developing the project to paint one of my existing portraits that was commissioned but not accepted, from what it is now to a painting of trump and then destroy it in a creative way for a video. It is fundraising to support doing it, if you want to comment on whose face to put next to trump in the painting, or a creative way of destroying it – or give a few dollars to do it, check it out and take a moment to donate, share and comment.

Thanks,

CricketDiane

Why the rights of citizens are in jeopardy in the United States right now

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

The inherent value of human life, dignity and equality is a basic tenet of the foundations of the United States. It is the basis that freed the slaves, gave women the right to vote, to own property and manage their own affairs. It is the foundation of human rights being valued and respected.

Our nation has supported this tenet in its many forms since its inception and over time, supported its ideals and premise to include all Americans more completely.

That is, until now. The current group of elected leaders in many states and in our national elected seats do not have any viable reason to support this tenet, so they don’t.

In a tiny percentage of all possible voters and citizens, that few have been allowed to take hold of positions of decision-making that affect us all, and those few don’t support the basic values of equality, human dignity, human rights and the inherent value of every human life, especially our own citizen’s lives and well-being.

That is where we are now, with the decision-making in this nation resting in the hands of a small group of people who hold the lives of Americans and their well-being in contempt and derision, rather than in esteem and honor.

New paintings, offering a pitch about brainstorming as a business service to businesses, organizations and projects plus a preview of the Little Shop Out Back that I’m staging for Cricket House Studios and CricketDiane 2018 are shown off in this new video made today. It turned out funny instead of serious but I’m posting it anyway.
