American Presidents | Representing The Whigs

The Whig was a U.S. Political party that was in existence from 1834 to 1856. Four of the active and influential members of the party served as the President of the United States.




No More Whigs

The Whig was a U.S. Political party that was in existence from 1834 to 1856. It was formed in opposition to the Democratic party. They favored higher tariffs and a liberal interpretation of the Constitution. The members eventually united with the Republicans and their party, as we know of it in history, was no more.

- William Henry Harrison (1841) -
We will never of he would have served our country well because he died one month after taking office of pneumonia.

- John Tyler (1841 – 1845) -
Tyler opened up trade with China and signed bills admitting Florida and Texas to the Union.

- Zachary Taylor (1849 – 1850) -
Respected as a war hero. “Old Rough and Ready” was his nickname. Before he could implement his policies concerning the exclusion of slavery from newly acquired lands, he died.

- Millard Fillmore (1850 – 1853) -
Fillmore delayed the debate over slavery by agreeing to The Compromise of 1850 which gave each newly acquired territory the “liberty” to decide, on their own, whether they would be a slave-state or a free-state. We of course know that the final decision was settled by the American Civil War.

U.S. History Timeline: From Washington to Tyler

Jackson and Monroe were not the only ones who made time for romance. All of the others had romantic involvements that resulted in marriages. The first names of the First Ladies from Washington to Tyler are as follows (with husband's initals and the wedding date): Martha (G.W. - January 6, 1759); Abigail (J.A.

U.S. History Timeline: After Lincoln, Before Coolidge

by cmoneyspinner The Republican party was formed in 1854 by antislavery groups. Members of the Whigs, Free-Soilers and Know-Nothing parties merged their ideals of freedom with others in this new party that opposed slavery.

Presidents Who Served First as Vice-Presidents

What do American Presidents John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Martin Van Buren, John Tyler, Millard Fillmore, Andrew Johnson, Chester A. Arthur, Theodore Roosevelt, and Calvin Coolidge all have in common with each other? Two things. These nine men served as Vice-Presidents before becoming Presidents; and they are no longer with US.

Happy Halloween! “Trick or Treat for UNICEF!” #BeScaryGood

When I was young there was a campaign/advertisement that came on television every year around or near the time to celebrate Halloween. It went like this: Children would knock on the door and when the neighbor opened their door, instead of asking for candy the kids would shout:

Trick or Treat for UNICEF!


UNICEF logo
The campaign began in 1950.  Certainly made an imprint in my mind. The idea was to get people to donate to the cause of helping children all over the world. This October 2017 will be the 67th year. I liked the idea THEN and like it NOW. Sharing this precious gem found via the UNICEF Tumblr blog. No doubt there are all kinds of ways one can contribute to such a worthy cause.

UNICEF:
Books, pencils, playgrounds, crayons – not all children will have access to these things going back to school. But they will be exposed to violence: http://uni.cf/1AbEGqt


Bless the children always.  Have to keep this charity work on the radar.  Always embrace an opportunity, especially when it's a holiday, and find a means to extend charity to those less fortunate. Trick or Treat for UNICEF!!

Growing My Facebook Network

One of the members in another community wrote about social media addiction.  I'm not addicted to social media. For me, it's a form of free advertising; plain and simple. I have affiliate marketing websites and blogs. I have to share them somewhere to get traffic to them. But it's also a way to meet new people and make friends; something that's hard to do since I work from home.  Been active on Facebook for well about 10 years. Shared my experience growing my network.

Stewart versus Esteves - Throw Down!

American TV personality Martha Stewart is the most famous housekeeper / homemaker in the world. That's what I thought until when mentioning her name in a casual discussion, the person who was not from America said they didn't know her. In case the reader does not know - Ms. Stewart's official Google Plus business page puts her occupation as “Businesswoman”. That is an inadequate or insufficient description. It should say “Phenomenal Businesswoman par Excellence”. Watched one of her shows one time and she was actually teaching her audience how to clean a dirty greasy frying pan! This woman took the mundane chores of housekeeping and homemaking on a Star Trek journey and boldly went places no woman had ever gone before. To the bank!!!
  • Martha Stewart's net worth at one time was reported at $300 million, per celebritynetworth.com. (Figured that must be an old report. So fished some more.)
  • A 2011 article published by abcnews.go.com, reported that Forbes.com reported her net worth at $638 million. (That's probably understated too, as of 2015.)

Anyway, getting to my real point - If you're not into baking from scratch like Martha Stewart, are you aware of the wonderful things that can be done with a cake mix? Isabelle Esteves shares her tips on how to enhance a basic cake mix.*

* Ms. Esteves unpublished her content.  Replacement link is to another food blog.


Ms. Stewart teaches you how to make all sorts of wonderful culinary delights on from scratch on her Martha Bakes TV series. But why do that when the family and friends chowing down on my upside down cake won't even notice the difference? Stewart versus Esteves? I'm in the Esteves corner.

Pinterest: A Look Back and Now! (2012 - 2015)

Back in 2012 this was the latest news concerning the new kid on the block, i.e. Pinterest.

How Pinterest Uses Your Content Without Violating Copyright Laws | readwrite.com (2012)

  • Pinterest, the increasingly popular pinboarding social network, is able to present a visually arresting interface in large part by using copyrighted images pinned by users. "It's a huge concern for creative bloggers," said Amy Anderson, who blogs on the arts and crafts site Crafter Minds. "I don't think Pinterest does anything to help protect copyright besides removing content when people ask."

Glad to have saved these historical markers. It's 2015 and Pinterest has made its way to becoming a recognized reliable social media "facilitator".  Their success is phenomenal.  Keeping up with their business affairs because several months back, they invited me to create a free business account.  That was a gracious and generous offer to a struggling home business entrepreneur.  Even though this company has hit the "big time" (as Peter Gabriel would say), they still extended a helping hand  to "the little people" (like me).  With a current net worth of $3.8 billion, they have plans to continue moving forward.   Here is what they were up to in 2015:

Tumblr and Google Plus, Ink!

Tumblr is a blogging platform and social sharing site that is very easy to use. 

Google Plus is a social network that is taking some getting used to but once you get the knack it can be lots of fun.

Tumblr knows that Google Plus communities have great potential so there is a Tumblr G+ community. This is an indirect route that is being taken to introduce others to an artist based in the Ukraine named Igor Amazonenco. He does ink portraits and his artwork is amazing!
