Tuesday Chatter Weekly – January 8, 2018


“With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.” -Eleanor Roosevelt

If we were having coffee at the cafe on this day, Tuesday, January 9th of the year in-

2007-Apple’s CEO, Steve Jobs announced the first generation of the iPhone

1982-5.9 quake shakes Canada and New England (the first since 1855)

1965-The Beatles’ 65 album was #1 for 9 weeks

1959-CBS-TV debut – “Rawhide” TV series with Clint Eastwood

1958-Toyota and Datsun made their debuts in the US

1942-US Joint Chiefs of Staff created

1811-First women’s golf tournament held

1788-Connecticut became the 5th state in the US

 Tuesdays are also meet and greet time at the cafe.  



enigmatic • muse • poetry


A Scripted Maze

perils in writing and whatnot



it is what it is and it too shall pass





 Word of the weekpedantic-(adjective)-of or like a pedant. Someone who’s too concerned with literal accuracy or formality. synonyms-scrupulous, precise, exact, perfectionist, punctilious, meticulous, fussy, fastidious, finicky.

Words that rhyme or nearly rhyme-attic, iambic, dramatic, magic, manic, dynamic, frantic, sarcastic.

 Let’s make it a year of realization

Make an effort to define our causation

 Ideation from the past too pedantic to appeal

Much to our dismay, we forget what’s, for real

Does our persona live in a world of pretend

Like a video game programmed with no end

Artificial intelligence is a success on the street

But is it able to fold a fitted sheet

Can a chatbot help us sell our brand

We’re told we can’t clap with one hand

Yes, too many cards left on the table

Is life, for real or a futuristic fable

    Steve Jobs was a genius! We bought our first Macbook (little white one, do you remember it?) in 2007 and have been Apple consumers ever since. I got my first iPhone in 2010. We upgraded last fall to the iPhone 8. Technology has come a long way. We have more computing power in our hands than desktop computers of 10, 20, or 30 years ago. It’s just crazy fantastic and I love it! Thanks for hosting and have chatty, good week! 😉

      I don’t use Apple products, however, I have a lot of respect for Steve Jobs and his brilliant mind. I agree, technology has come a long way and I love it! Thank you for visiting.

    Loved your poem Eugenia, and your lines ” Artificial intelligence is success on the street
    But is it able to fold a fitted sheet ”
    Seems A.I. has been in both our minds, I wrote a poem just after Christmas with AI in one line too.. Still have to type it up though from my journal.. 🙂

    Have a most Empowering 2018 Eugenia my friend.. Love and Blessings to you xxx

      Thank you for visiting, Sue. It seems AI is the new kid on the block, even though it’s been around for a while. I’ve noticed an increase in articles written about AI and its advantages and disadvantages.

      Much success to you in 2018!!

        Yes it is being introduced for us to get used to it as the ‘norm’ While it is being presented well in and as a wonderful aid in prosthetic applications ,It has more sinister future consequences.

        Thank you and to you to Eugenia xx
