Okay here I go again. My Feedster icon only shows in the actual Feedster account, not on the Feedster search section. So I’m trying to see what it takes to get that portion of the site to display the icon.

If you have been following the site then you will notice I’ve made a few changes. The varying themes have been updated to provide a more complete and wider selection. I’ve also added links for little “escapes” from the island life. I am continuing to try and learn the scripting languages of each program in order to provide a site that can be viewed accurately in as many applications as possible. Good news is I was finally able to get my icon on the Feedster claim and it actually shows up on the Technorati site!!! One down, one million nine hundred ninety-nine… things to go.

I was watching a program on the psychology of beauty on CNN today. Joan Rivers was the chosen Queen of reality advice. Ive taken Psych 101 and am familiar with the statistics of the reality of beauty. But, as most people are aware of, humans tend not be ruled only by the encoded behaviors that have been passed down through the generations. True there is a statistically proven attraction to symmetrical images, including those of humans. Also true, at least statistically, those who possess higher symmetries are at an advantage. But to say that a society is doing a disservice by trying to instill a sense of being, I dont buy that. Every day an untold sum of money is spent on people trying to get an edge. Promoting the belief that the outer person is more important than what a persons behaviors indicate is leading to nothing more than trouble. Im not a person who follows the tabloids, or any other fad for that matter. Maybe part of the trouble of society in this day is that they are always looking for the immediate payoff. And if everything is about beauty, than why were so many people such big fans of George Burns, Jessica Tandy, and look at Art Linkletter! (The man is 93 and still as astute and entertaining in his observations as he was 40 years ago.) And what about Oprah? Do you really think that she has made it so far by falling back on the typical image of beauty? Shes so popular because she is a smart everyday person that people can connect to without feeling that they have to degrade who they are as person. Lets face it, the reason many men dislike Jon Bon Jovi is because he is a threat with all his talent and looks. And women like him because he is one of those lucky people who didnt let that interfere with being a down to earth person. I think to say that people should go under the knife to remain physically attractive to the opposite sex is nothing more than a superficial sellout to the pressures of modern business. Very few of us are lucky enough to have it all, but the key should be how to accentuate the strengths, not annihilate the perceived weaknesses, of each person
