Redneck or Worse?

Did I just see that man grab a young girl where I think he did? Hard to tell and not the best shot but what the hell did he just do? This is across the lane from my building. When he comes home, he passes my place and yells out the name of the guy who lived next to me. I don't know if it's a feud or something or what his malfunction is... But wow...

Would be nice

If my worker called me to let me know if they are covering the rent hike or not. After all he had lots of time to phone and be a jerk the other day. Now something this important is ignored of course. My mental state means nothing to them I am sure. As well as the need to know if I need to find a rat hole to move to. Sigh people just don't give a crap about us lowly disabled folks. Government is the worst of it and its little workers who play God over us.

Product Review - International Delight Iced Coffee

It was much better after I got the ice made and let it sit for a little while to cool down.
Vanilla 8/10
Mocha 9/10
Smooth taste to both. Mocha had more of a coffee taste to it. Make sure you shake the container well before you use them.

Website I got the free coupons from was: https://www.bzzagent.com/

Note the Audio is messed up. The video works fine on my end but on YouTube after 3 uploads it's still not functioning correctly...

SAID is killing me

I have recently needed to provide proof that the rent is going up for SAID. I gave them a letter after I was given a verbal notice that the rent is going up. For this I got a phone call that was to say the least degrading and demoralizing. I am a human being and deserve a basic level of respect. The government workers who are paid to help people like me always seem to act in a superior manor and try to push us down. The sarcastic overtones and overt innuendo that I am trying to pull a fast one on them is not welcome.

The greatest source of stress in my life and will continue to be the social workers at SAID, until it is too much and I drop dead. I am just so tired of being treated like shit all of the time when I have to deal with them. It's amazing as hell to me how they think they can just fuck with us... Until this is resolved I will be in true hell. The massive pain I feel most days is nothing in comparison to the mental pain they put me through. I just don't know what the hell to do - ya know... I am just trying to live here - I am not trying to scam the system. I just want to be able to live properly. Like a person. Instead I am treated like an animal. Every time I have to deal with them I end up in tears curled up in a ball waiting to be fucked over. How many times can I go through this until I just can't take it anymore? When is the last time? One day it will kill me I am sure. I will have a heart attack or I will just lose the battle with the dark thoughts. In any event they will push me over the edge. They seem to do this to me... What did I do? Why do I have to live like this? Why can't I go 3 months with no big time stress on me because of these people? What the living hell? Why no dignity at all? I am always stripped of it and left a mess. They just don't give a shit about us!

The best thing is, when I provide proof on Monday there will be no “I am sorry” for the pushing me around on the phone. As for the rent here – it is average. Just look on the web for apartments in town and one will see what I am talking about. The places that are of less money (and there are not many) are not safe to live in. They are dives at best and not a healthy or safe environment for anyone. For God’s sake there is a place half the size of this with no kitchen in it for $500 a month. All I am asking for is $650 a month to live in a place that is close to the places I need to deal with. Attached will be screen caps from the local online source for rentals. You will see a much smaller and not so well located apartment for $600 and a single room in a shared environment for $500. I need to be close to the store and to the drug store as well as my doctor and so on. This is the perfect location for me.

So why do I have to fight for every scrap? The fact that a move will always destabilize my mood disorder and put me at risk is beyond these people. The fact that I need a safe and quiet place to life is far over their heads. All I ask for is what anyone should have at the very least.

Elijah Harper Dead.

There are only 8 or 10 politicians I ever had a deep respect for. This man was second from the top in my mind. He stood for what he thought was right and let no one stand in his way. He changed the way a lot of people thought about first nations people as well, me being one of them. He overcame a lot in his lifetime and became a leader among leaders. His impact was not only on the provinces of Manitoba and Saskatchewan but on the entire political and social landscape of Canada. Canada has lost of of it's most outstanding people I must say.

In Moose Jaw you say...

In Moose Jaw you say... A city with crumbling streets at best. Must be hard to plan how to get across town with no potholes and what not... Besides I don't want to burst a bubble but I always LOL at a tricked out truck. I do NOT see the point. Trucks to me are utility and off road fun. I mean really - where do you even put the speakers in this thing? Not a fan of blue as well, never have been.

I am also reminded of the upcoming latest version of Fast and Stupid - or what ever... See if you got yourself a hot car and you can't out run a TANK then your are doing it wrong... To say the least... How many of you have seen a 9 second tank out there in your life? A smart car can out run the fastest tanks out there with a little work on em... Think about that...

Smitty's on the the North Service Road

The Petro Burger from Smitty's on the the North Service Road in Moose Jaw. This is only made when it is the special of the day. 8oz Beef patty, mushrooms, bacon, a slice of ham and a slice of back bacon (Canadian Bacon for people not in Canada). Topped with onions, tomato and lettuce. You can have fries or salad with it. The gravy is extra just like most places. Would be better with a bit of cheddar in it but it is well worth the price. At the time I got this one it was $9.95. With coffee and tax it's still under $13. So I would call it a value item.

Some days the cooking can be a bit slow and the till some times has a wait time as well. But the vast majority of the time I have had outstanding service. This is also a petro-pass card lock fuel stop for the truckers. There is a well appointed lounge in the back I am told although I have never seen it. It is also down the road from the Flying-J and a truck wash. This is the spot in town for truckers to say the least. It is also a favorite for family dining among the people I know and love. There are often gatherings of groups that come to this spot, so some times you will see some nice motor bikes or cars.

I have been going there for coffee for 20 years or about. I have never had a bad experience the entire time. I rate this business 8/10. The only problem is with one or two of the booths closest to the door, there is sometimes ants crawling into the sugar or on the table. I know this can be a never come back thing for some, so I will say it now. Parking is good and there is a convenience store and gas bar at your disposal. It is easy to get to from the highway, making it a choice spot for travelers.

Other meals I recommend are the ribs, the torpedo shrimp and the rocky mountain burger. Price range is average. Also close to places to stay the night. Added bonus is it is licensed but has a limited selection to choose from.
