The biggest news in Pittsburgh is the arctic-like blast the city continues to suffer under. For the next few days, the highs will be in the teens and the 20s and the lows will be around zero with minus wind chill factors.
The city has designated Senior Citizen Centers as warming shelters. The police are on the look for the homeless, to give them rides to warm shelters.
The Old Soldier just came in from the cold with milk and bagels. The arctic-like weather made my eyes water. I was glad to get back inside.
And I know there are other areas of the nation that are hit much harder by this arctic blast than Pittsburgh.
The Old Soldier can’t get over how cool Wikipedia is. Wikipedia is the online dictionary that takes crowd sourcing to a new level.
I’ve used Wikipedia to look up my favor bands and my favorite authors. I’ve used Wikipedia to do research on magazines and publishing houses. I’ve used Wikipedia to research historical figures. And I’ve never come across any information in Wikipedia that was contradicted by another source. I’m not saying Wikipedia doesn’t make mistakes. I’m just saying I’ve found Wikipedia to be totally reliable.
Wikipedia, the Old Soldier salutes you!
The New Computer
My search for a new computer continues. Although, a brand new computer will bust my budget. So, the Old Soldier is leaning towards getting a refurbished computer which would be much cheaper than a brand new computer.
The computer that I use runs Windows XP. I mean new computers run Windows 8. See what I’m up against? I don’t want to wake up one morning and find that I can’t connect to the Internet. It’s already happened twice.
This is the Old Soldier reporting for the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette, the premiere online publication of erotica for men and women who appreciate creative writing, culture and sex in the pages of the same magazine.
