Henry the Goat – Forever the GOAT

Today I had to say goodbye to our last goat Henry.

Henry had an amazing life – open fields and lived to the ripe old age of 14 (when most goats of his breed only live to 11 on average).

There are many situations in life that make you think more about life and how much you really do need to take advantage of every day!

Thank you Henry for being an amazing friend over the years. Rest in peace my friend.

Knock Ons in Rugby League – Seems to be Any Drop of the Ball

I have just started watching the Challenge Cup Rugby League final in the UK. Its a strong game between St Helens and Castleford so far!

However, Im wondering why in Rugby League now – when anyone drops the ball forwards or backwards the referee calls it a knock on (or knock forwards)?

It’s like the rules of the game have been forgotten.

Parenting is By Far the Hardest Job in the World

Parenting is by far the hardest job in the world. It’s something you don’t realise when you don’t have kids, but the constant learning curve with parenting and the sheer relentlessness is unbelievable.

I can’t wait to be a grandparent as that has the best of both worlds. You get to play with your grand kids and then hand them back to their parents when it gets hard.

Can Blogging Really Make Money in 2020?

This is the exact question I have setout to answer!

Blogging and writing is a great way for me to get my thoughts out of my head. However, it would also be nice to make this little side project as self sufficient as possible.

Additionally, I find that writing content really helps me to learn and investigate about specific topics. (Everything in life is a learn process)

Im going to try to write as much as possible for the remainder of 2020 and see where we can get to by the end. I don’t have amazingly high hopes, but it will be a fun process either way.

What is WordPress

WordPress is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL. WordPress is installed on a web server, which either is part of an Internet hosting service or is a network host itself; the first case may be on a service like WordPress.com, for example, and the second case is a computer running the software package WordPress.org. An example of the second case is a local computer configured to act as its own web server hosting WordPress for single-user testing or learning purposes.

Features include a plugin architecture and a template system. WordPress was used by more than 26.4% of the top 10 million websites as of April 2016. WordPress is the most popular blogging system in use on the Web, at more than 60 million websites. It was released on May 27, 2003, by its founders, Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little, as a fork of b2/cafelog. The license under which WordPress software is released is the GPLv2 (or later) from the Free Software Foundation.

Themes And Plugins

Themes

WordPress users may install and switch between themes. Themes allow users to change the look and functionality of a WordPress website and they can be installed without altering the content or health of the site. Every WordPress website requires at least one theme to be present and every theme should be designed using WordPress standards with structured PHP, valid HTML and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). Themes may be directly installed using the WordPress “Appearance” administration tool in the dashboard or theme folders may be uploaded via FTP. The PHP, HTML (HyperText Markup Language) and CSS code found in themes can be added to or edited for providing advanced features.

WordPress themes are in general classified into two categories, free themes and premium themes. All the free themes are listed in the WordPress theme directory and premium themes should be purchased from marketplaces and individual WordPress developers. WordPress users may also create and develop their own custom themes if they have the knowledge and skill to do so. If WordPress users do not have themes development knowledge then they may download and use free WordPress themes from wordpress.org.

Plugins

WordPress’s plugin architecture allows users to extend the features and functionality of a website or blog. WordPress has over 40,501 plugins available, each of which offers custom functions and features enabling users to tailor their sites to their specific needs. These customizations range from search engine optimization, to client portals used to display private information to logged in users, to content management systems, to content displaying features, such as the addition of widgets and navigation bars. But not all available plugins are always abreast with the upgrades and as a result they may not function properly or may not function at all.

What is Knowledge Base

A knowledge base (KB) is a technology used to store complex structured and unstructured information used by a computer system.

The initial use of the term was in connection with expert systems which were the first knowledge-based systems.The original use of the term knowledge-base was to describe one of the two sub-systems of a knowledge-based system. A knowledge-based system consists of a knowledge-base that represents facts about the world and an inference engine that can reason about those facts and use rules and other forms of logic to deduce new facts or highlight inconsistencies. The term “knowledge-base” was coined to distinguish this form of knowledge store from the more common and widely-used term database. At the time (the 1970s) virtually all large Management Information Systems stored their data in some type of hierarchical or relational database. At this point in the history of Information Technology the distinction between a database and a knowledge base was clear and unambiguous.
