The Death of Real Blogging:
BUT FIRST: One last word on the death of Kary Mullis just prior to the "pandemic" and the theft of his PCR test for the purpose of "diagnosing" the dreaded "Covid":
Looks like the vaxx pushers got tired of people quoting him on the truth about PCR:

No matter how bad the new test may be, there's no history behind it to haunt the perps.
Hello folks: This is my Final Report.
(This final article, side bar links, and all archived items, will remain online until my paid-for contract runs out, in September, I think.)
I started blogging in the wake of 9/11 and the ensuing wars that resulted from it. I took leave for several years to return to my hometown, Kingston, to assist with my elderly mother's care. But eventually I returned to blogging again, this time not on Google, but on a site I had to pay money to for its hosting services -- but not ever did I even think of trying to make money off my readers.
I've had a good run since starting up again, but in the past year my readership has slowly but steadily dropped, and now I know why. It's a thing called "Substack", a corporation that is aiming to rule journalism -- including all other paid-for news outlets as well.
NYMag: Substack is a scam in the way that all media is.
[Written by a professional newswriter who sadly doesn't know that "media" is a plural word that should have been followed by "are", not "is". It's the same error that some other "professionals" make when talking about "data" -- another plural - "datum" being the singular. Sorry, but, in general, I have a hard time believing in experts who don't seem to know their own language. I can't help it -- I had very strict grammar teachers when I went to school.]
However ... I can't disagree with him about Substack and the media in general.
Here's another take:
LifeHacker: How Much Money Can You Really Make on Substack?
And yet another:
All you folks who have abandoned the old, unpaid bloggers -- those who wrote for the sake of society and truth, and not for their pocket books -- and then flocked to Substack: beware of the money game. It really is the root of all evil. Writers on Substack will eventually find (if they haven't already) that there are some things about which they should not write.
Here's a (very) long-time blogger who got kicked off Google for speaking the truth and had to recreate herself on another platform. How long will it be before certain truth-telling becomes verboten on Substack? But first, of course, they must build up enough clientele to be able to boot some of them out.
It almost makes Ted Kaczynski seem like some kind of a crazy seer. Take a look for old time's sake. His "manifesto". His life now: Grunge
But there's no need for violence and bombs (except for the government-sanctioned kind). Society appears to be sliding down the tube of its own volition.
A strange example might be the "seniors" apartment building I'm living in which was beautiful when I arrived here over four years ago, but which was subsequently grabbed by the City from the original builders/owners, and has steadily deteriorated to the point where, because of the calibre of certain people now being allowed in (basically druggies), we had an infestation of cockroaches (I had never seen one before, so it was quite an education for me) and, just last week, a serious apartment fire on the same floor that still harbours roaches.
Additionally, many of the personal mail boxes were broken into, and twice needed to be restored.
Some residents unknown to me and anonymous in this report, were already starting to worry about the poor quality of upkeep back in August 2021, and the rude response from the City.
Not to mention that somebody now has sent around flyers titled, "Let's talk about Fire Safety" which implies that all of us decent tenants are potential fire starters. And nowhere in the local news does it say that the fire was started by a pot smoker - just that it was the result of improper use of "smoking materials", and not even pointing out that it is a non-smoking building. Does the city have clout over the local media as well?
If we question the City by email, we get bumped off their mail server. At least I did! And it's not likely they'll chat with me on the phone.
Oh, and that's not all. This is bizarre: there are notices telling us not to let strangers into the building by holding the door open for them -- strangely omitting that the same types that started the fire can buzz them in when they use the intercom! It's as if everybody in the building has been tarred by the landlord as a potential contributor to the deterioration of the situation.
Is the City merely attempting to take the heat off itself and its poor performance as a landlord?
Convenient that pot is no longer verboten, isn't it. For that we can either give praise to or blame our famous Crime Minister. And it's only one example of a society that is going to hell in a hand-basket unless it wakes up to the reality of the implications of the "Great Reset".
There's a noticeable increase in the numbers of "homeless" beggars on the streets -- some of whom camped out (until kicked out) in the stairwells and laundry rooms of our apartment building (having been let into the building by druggie tenants), smoking cigarettes in a non-smoking building, tossing refuse from whatever they were eating in the stairwells, and reportedly defecating wherever they chose to.
I've never had much faith in City Council; it's kind of an old boy's club, despite the presence of some women, and new councillors probably have to bow to the general consensus -- if the apparent lack of determination from the newly-elected Councillor in my district is any indication.
I could be wrong about him ... but the beat does go on.
Am I harshing the mellow? It's already been harshed by a fake "pandemic" with no real end in sight to the scare tactics, since that might require some sort of admission on the part of the perpetrators. I haven't watched TV in over a decade, but "The Walking Dead" series seems prophetic enough.

I’m going to miss your blog, Yaya. It’s been full of good common sense opinions and humorous takes on many topics — always well written too. It must have been a challenge at times to get your Sunday Report out so faithfully. Thank you for putting in all that work and sharing your wisdom so generously with your readers.

Thanks for hanging in for so long, M.R. and for your thoughts and info on so many topics.
22/2/2023 05:26:09 pm
Many thanks for your note, Penny. I'll still be dropping in on your site from time to time. You know so much more about foreign issues than I seem to have time (or mental power) for, so I learn a lot from your posts.

So, you really didn't abandon my site completely. Thanks, Rachel. I do remember you but thought I may have lost you along with others. The Internet is so huge now; so much to choose from.

Lots of love Corinne, it's been an amazing ride. You will always be in my heart. Peace, always.

Chycho! I wondered if you might show up. Thanks for keeping me in your heart. You're in mine as well. Strangely, I think of you every evening when I close the drapes. I've been measuring out my life with drapes, so couldn't exclude you.

You are in my thoughts as well, more than anyone else that has touched my heart online. You're blog, your words, your message has always brought me peace when I needed it, and for that you have my unending love and gratitude.
