We live in a world that has little time for others. Sharing and caring has little meaning since we lead busy lives. It has been said "stop and smell the roses". In this me first era, we need to take the time and show interest in others around us. Doesn't  it feel good when someone does or says  something to or for us? Let's turn things around and make the effort to positively affect the life of another person or persons. We may say to ourselves "I will get around to it when I have the time", but what about doing something small or large now? In other words without expecting something in return, PAY IT FORWARD- NOW.  Your reward will be great.  Be a part of a growing swell of people that said to themselves, "I did it now".  Make a mental checklist of things you can do, and follow through. A small thing like opening a door, a smile, eye contact with someone, a donation, volunteering,  a gentle touch, or a caring word, a thank you, or even a prayer for someone in need. Share your stories, your experiences, and your hopes with someone you care about. If you care to, record your story on video to share in the future. Enjoy your life each day, and reach out beyond yourself, and pay It forward-now.

THIS BAD AD

Are you fed up with bad advertising?

Have your eyes and ears been insulted enough?

Throughout our lives we have been subjected to national advertising of every conceivable form. Fortunately, for the most part, advertising was taken seriously, and great effort and cost is taken to inform the buying public in a dignified and proper way. It’s obvious, the industry tries to inform, and motivate us to purchase or do something either directly, or indirectly for the advertisers gain. Have you noticed over the years the advertising media has stretched and perverted common sense in advertising to the point of a primeval scream? If your answer is yes; now you have an opportunity to speak out and be part of a focus group.

This Bad Ad will supply you a blog to post your feelings and valued judgments.. The question is; are you being entertained or informed? Watch the ad if on television, without the sound on and observe. The latest craze is, if it doesn’t wiggle in some fashion you won’t respond.

Just follow the simple outline supplied, or make up your own. Please keep your comments in good taste, and express your disfavor with the material. If you wish, make a comment or two on how the advertisers may improve their material. You may just comment by telling the advertisers to put it in the all gone file and start over. The purpose of this space is to give people a chance to inform others of you feel about poor, annoying, and deceptive advertising. Also to change an industry that thinks that they can throw anything our way enough times that we will run out and do whatever they have in mind.

Where the national ad used?

Television or Radio

When did you either see or hear it?

How was it used?

Why do you disapprove?

What was advertised?

What should be done to improve the ad?

Question: Would you buy the product, or be motivated based on their present ad campaign? Yes, No,

After deciding who is to be the main character in telling his or her life story, we now start filling in the blanks in developing the proper tools to creating a professional looking life story. As we discuss the format with the main person, a list of questions should be asked  beginning with: who will be in the video life story? Is the interview going to be solo, or does the person wish to have a family member such as a spouse join in? Will there be a cast of characters in the video, or sharing with the interview?

After choosing the individual for the video life history, begin to assemble all personal and family pictures in chronological order. Then separate them in folders by categories, (may be stages of life, family, friends, or possibly events). Then start to form a mental image how the story will be related.

Television and movies have perverted and diluted morals to the point that sex, extreme violence, corruption, and getting even, are commonplace events. To add to the mix, murder and mutilation have conditioned the general public each evening. Finally advertising has reached a ridiculous point that they are more of entertainment value, insulting our common sense, and the product or service they offer is almost secondary. If you think this is not true, watch the ads with the mute on, and observe. It is all glitz, mainly aimed at the youth, and focus groups have forgotten that the baby boomers are purchasers of these same products. Drug side effects are enough to kill you, no thanks. Aging individuals reminisce about the good old days, and think fondly of how things were. Homes were left unlocked; people talked to one’s neighbors, and offered help when it was needed. This rarely happens now.

As a writer of a product that educates people how to video their life story for family, friends, and future generations, I found people turning their back on such a medium. People are occasionally interested in going to museums and looking at the past, but do nothing to preserve the lives of those who contributed to our present. With the death of each person another valuable story is lost to the ages. What we leave behind is a headstone with dates, a short article in the newspaper, or an internet genealogy lookup where we came into the world, where we lived and the place of death. This points to the fact that our aging generation is being forgotten in this fast paced life. There is nothing wrong with the younger generation, they are our future, and they need to find their direction, value and purpose in life, but this should not be their only mission. They should remember those who loved them through thick and thin. Of course, there are many who remember their parents and bravo for those who demonstrate their care. As for those who are bothered by their aging family members and want to distance themselves from them, they need to reflect that they will be in their shoes someday and who will care for them? Parents always wanted the best for their kids, that’s the way it was, and is. It is time we all reflect about those who came before us and cared so much. We need to reach out to each other before it is too late. Sharing the history of older ones is an untapped treasure of the goodness and experiences that they could relate. Imagine grandchildren viewing stories of people in their family they will never meet, since they are a part of history now. Take the time to listen to their life’s struggles, their family members, and who influenced their life. You can find out how they met their spouse, raised their children and the changes they experienced in their life. Ask about their hopes and dreams. Show your interest in them and let them know you care. There is so much to experience, be a part of them.

A Disposable Generation

We live in a time when almost everything is disposable, from televisions, automobiles, even buildings. Eventually everything is thrown away and finally recycled, if possible. In many cases things are manufactured to wear out, or have lost its usefulness and is tossed away. It is a culture that has gradually worsened over the years. When driving in your car take a look at our streets and highways, they are filled with disposable litter waiting for collection, and landfills are becoming small mountains. This discussion is not to make people aware of what is disposable, but what is of value, and what should be saved. My point is that a great treasure is being disposed of with fervor. It is a whole generation of people who are aging, and no longer seem to be of value to the younger ones. This system is gradually putting older ones out of work, out touch, and basically ignored. This generation has moved from the family conversation, to shorts bursts of words in a text message, or a picture on a web page with a comment or two. This “get to the point medium” is rapidly replacing the face to face exchange expressions of individual thoughts and creative ideas. As time passes by, if the older ones have not caught up with the sweeping tide of electronic communication, they are put on the curbside like a big box television. This begs the question, when do the young visit their grandparents, and when do the children of parents give them a call or visit to show their love and concern? When do they ask questions about family history gone by, and the roots of their very being? When death knocks at the door for the elderly, they are rarely spoken of again.

In this “busy me first generation”; a great deal of life is centered on monetary gain, social status, along with a smattering of religious training on Sundays. Morals have been sidetracked and have deteriorated to the point where good is bad and bad is good. Violence is found in every corner of life. The forms of entertainment we view, and the news we are bombarded with are reflective of the ways of life we live with. Children’s video games have ratcheted up to new levels of death and destruction. It won’t be long before their fingers will have more strength than their arms.
