A quick note about WordPress video playback:
Ever since WP did an upgrade to their video playback here a couple or so months ago, some visitors have noted having difficulty in playing videos @ WP so after a bit of experimenting with different browsers and a heads-up from fellow WP bloggy~friend Philip, it appears that if you’re using the Safari browser, videos here on WP will not play at all as they’ll appear to be “buffering” forever with no means of ever playing the videos =/. The Safari browser on many Samsung devices I’ve found is indeed installed as the default browser so you’d need to use another browser if intending to play WP videos or on any other platform for that matter.
Firefox continues to be the most compatible for WordPress video playback as well as Google Chrome which also works okay. Not sure about Internet Explorer as I don’t currently use that browser but it may be worth a try ^^.
If you live here in Hawaii or really in any part of the U.S., you most likely heard the exciting news last month which announced an official exhibition stop here in the islands on December the 6th!!!! for the United States Soccer Women’s National Team whom are currently on their worldwide exhibition tour celebrating their awesome World Cup win \(^O^)/!!!!!~! Tickets went on sale last week and I’m sure demand will be high as there are numerous soccer clubs and organizations which reside here as soccer has pretty much been a big part of our island culture going back may years. A truly once in a lifetime chance to watch this historical team take the field and particularly even more so as it represents also the second to the last match for the U.S.’s all-time leading goal scorer in Abby Wambach whom announced her retirement from the sport just last month as her final match with the team will come at the teams very next exhibition match against China which is scheduled for December the 16th. Most exciting news!!!! as I can’t recall any soccer event of this magnitude coming here to the islands ever!~! ^^
~Becoming Alex Morgan~
A couple of weeks ago the Disney channel aired this mini-special highlighting the life of Alex Morgan going all the way back to her early childhood as it takes a pretty comprehensive look (as least what’s allowed by 20 or so minutes =) ….) into all that went into her becoming the awesomely talented soccer star that she is today!! So on the heels of the incredible news that welcomes Alex and her amazing U.S. National Team here to the islands, I thought what better place to feature this mini-clip ….enjoy =)!
