RIP Mr. P.

2 comments
Wow. I just realized that I haven't written on my personal blog for over a month. Sometimes when time passes you by, you forget to stop and remember what has been going on lately. Today, I got unexpected news. It's weird. I had to find out from FB, but then again, I'm thankful for FB that allowed me to see in the news feed that one of the guys that I played waterpolo with was killed while jogging this morning. This morning, I knew that I wasn't feeling it. I didn't feel like getting up. I didn't feel like doing anything and now I know why. May he rest in peace. I do have to say this, my fondest memory of him is that he loved playing waterpolo and he loved having a great time! His positive outlook was by far awesome and he was never amused with any negative thoughts. He loved joking around and every once in a while he'd look you in the eye and give you this wink. That's how confident he was in himself and with life. Thus, as much as I want to be there for him and his family, I know that I'll be there for him now. Alive in my writing and within this post. :) 

I hope you're still playing waterpolo in heaven! Mr. P. You were certainly beloved!


His memorial service can be found here.

Basketball and Zip.

Who do you think will win the NBA Championships? Who do you think will win March Madness? Do you feel that the words that are said now matches the action of what was done then? Do you think that SC is the place to understand why what happened is what happened? Do you think that college basketball has ruined itself over and over again? Do you think that March Maddness this year is worth watching? Who do you think will be in the top 10? Who do you think will emerge as the best college basketball team of the year?

I don't like this. At all.

I knew it. SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine — Russian armed forces seized control of Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula on Saturday, as the Russian Parliament granted President Vladimir V. Putin broad authority to use military force in response to the political upheaval in Ukraine that dislodged a Kremlin ally and installed a new, staunchly pro-Western government. FUCK.

Unregulated. Unreal. Unfollow. Period.

I'm going to try an experiment. Maybe it might be the first of its kind. I've always wondered what way would be the best way to get the fastest pageviews on a blog. Or in other words, how do you get traffic to your website or blog? With Google being, what's the word...King. It's hard to get content that people just love. It's harder to get them to stay on your website for longer than 30 seconds to five minutes. I'll blame the short attention span on medication for people who have short attention span. Or really, I just blame technology for have instant access to everything. There was a day when it was important to read everything in the newspaper, but now, everything is summarized in 120 characters. I swear to G-O-D, if the greatest writers were here, I think they would think that our generation is just suffering from pure maddness.

A message from The Silent Grapevine Founder

Leave a Comment

Today is the third month anniversary of the fire that Mary and I experience on October 17, 2013. As some of my closest followers know, I have not posted a single blog post since then. The recovery process, was, just too much and draining. Nevertheless, with some help from you, our followers, our friends, American Red Cross,  and our families support, we are now in a better place. Professionally, I am now in a better position to begin blogging again for The Silent Grapevine and with my personal blog as well. 

I plan on keeping this short, but I plan on telling my personal story about my experience on my personal blog about what I went through and the experiences that I learned along the way. I urge you to participate and share your stories as well. I think society as a whole can learn so much from each other with the stories we have and to share those stories, to help ourselves and others, move on. 

As for the Silent Grapevine, my goal is straight-forward: to get a million page views within the next six months. My goal is to make the Silent Grapevine the #1 place when people can get the latest news on just about anything! My goal is huge, risky and going out on a limb, but with your help, it can be done! Social media is an amazing tool; if we can use this tool well, we can help create more deaf awareness with the stories, videos and what we share with others! 

Again, thank you to those who donated and supported Mary and I through our difficult transition from the fire. 

Thomsen
The Silent Grapevine Founder
