(Editor: I just lost today’s Coconut Telegraph and the politics section. I’m upgrading to a much better server plan and they said it would take 24 hours. I was on tech support 2 1/2 hours Monday, 2 hrs Thursday, and 1 1/2 hours today trying to get it to work properly. I don’t know what to tell you folks and there’s no way I could express my frustration after al this. Today I spent 3 hours putting together Fridays site. Boo hoo. And people ask me why i drink!

I’ll try to reconstruct it as best I can:

(Editor: This is why l hate
computers. 2 “/2 hours on tech
support Monday, 2 hours on tech
support Thursday, 1 hour on tech
support Friday. All it got me is another
upgrade in fees. When lstarted hosting was
$20 a month now its $200 a month. GoDaddy
promised me that all my website problems
will be over. Somehow, l don’t believe them as
they always seem to be able to squeeze more
money from me. Deer viewers, If you should
get a warning that the site is not safe, just
bypass it as the site is migrating to a new
improved site and the security certificate
[SSL] is in flux for the next 24 hours.)
[Tired of ‘Tipflation‘] If you feel like you’re
being asked to tip practically everywhere
these days, you’re not alone. In addition to
the traditional venues — restaurants, barber
shops, cabs — customers are being
prompted to tip everywhere from
convenience store counters to self-checkout
kiosks at airports. Etiquette experts such as
Thomas Farley — also known as Mister
Manners — are calling the phenomenon
“People are really feeling imposed upon,”
Farley says. “We’re already living through
inflationary times. Everything is crazy
expensive. And on top of that, you’re being
asked, every time you turn around, ‘How much
would you like to tip?’ It feels pushy, it feels
needy and almost every customer I speak with
says, ‘Why aren’t businesses just paying
people more?’” It’s a good question, but don’t
hold your breath for an answer. Rather, take
solace in the knowledge that there are still
scenarios where etiquette experts say a tip is
not required — even if you’re presented with a
tablet that asks for one.

[Blackness] |’m fed up with the media trying to convert me to be Black. What do you see when you turn on the television? Black commercials, Black propaganda, Black music, Black sports, Black history month, Black lives matter, Black culture, a Black person replacing Abe Lincoln, Black person in Louis |V’s court, Black celebration of Jl.neteenth, Kwanza, the Black national arthem. Why would I want to be associated w’th 13% of the population who see tremselves as perpetual victims. Of the 13% o‘ the population that corporations are targeting, approximately 50.1% are on the government dole.
[Plan Ahead] In the 1980s, two of my friends bought an old Bronco together. They were target shooting by the quarry on No Name Key and wanted to put a bullet hole in the door for laughs. Those were the days of smugglers in the Keys. They shot the door, shattering the glass because they forgot that the window was down. So for the rest of the years they owned the Bronco, the passenger door didn’t have a window. In the winter they’d put cardboard in the space

On this National Tattoo Day, |’m reminded of a girl I dated in college that had the most realistic tattoo I have ever seen. It was a seashell tattooed on her inner thigh and when you put your ear to it, you could smell the ocean.
