Pizza, beer and coffee - Dec. 27th and 28th 2014

Image
Always the best place in town for Pizza. Come in on 9th Ave. off of Highway 1 and go over the bridge. You can't miss the place. It's small and the wait is long when it's busy, but the pizza is so worth it. They have lots of other good food as well.  855 Grandview St W, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 5L7.  I had a Kokanee beer with my pizza and the label was on back to front. The lettering on the inside instead of the outside. Not the first time I seen it happen on this brand of beer. But it still tasted good. I rather a porter, but this will more than just do :)  Here it is the Rodoes Special (#21) a medium at that. It's an all dressed stacked up to about an inch thick. There is no way even a big man like me can finish this puppy. So half of it came home with me in a box for the next day. It made a fine breakfast.  Out for coffee this afternoon on the north service road. Smittie's to be exact. It's also a petro can with a card lock bulk fuel in the back of it. The service…

The worst thing about us really

The worst thing about us really is that we think we know the truth. We don't search for it, we know it. Reality is a construct of the mind and we know actually so little, that we make most of the world up around us. We can literally never see the world as it is, but as we think it is. The truth that we think we grasp is in essence a lie told to us by the mind. We don't even know who we are in relation to the world, but who we think we are. The truth does not exist. It can't as an absolute. Reality is unaware of us. The universe does not know we are here. We just place importance on ourselves. After all that is our most important task according to society. We should in fact realize we know almost nothing and we need to search to the last moment. We also need to realize that everyone is important, not just us. In the end in 10,000 more years, perhaps more, no one will be here any more. It will all be lost and for nothing. Now is what matters. Search for meaning. Search for …

I Feel Lucky

I have to say I go to bed every night thinking how loved I am and how wonderful life actually is. I have the best people in my life and am very thankful of this. Thank you God for good friends and good conversation. I am blessed and will never forget it. I love you all and thanks for all the love. Big hugs, Dave.

A Redneck So Long

A Redneck So Long David S. Nicholson Dec. 16, 2014
That dead fish rotting in the gutter seems to catch the light just right and it reminds me of the way you loved me. I listen to the cats fighting in the dark and I am reminded of you singing along with the radio. I smack my head getting into the pick up truck and I remember how you used to throw beer bottles at my face if I interrupted you watching X-Factor. God I am going to miss you baby, but the compressor on this freezer is broken and your starting to smell.

Cat Food or Hot Sauce?

Image
So Angie was so nice to send me a $50 gift card with a Christmas card. I really did not expect it and am very thankful. But it's for amazon.com and not amazon.ca so I had to set up with the .com version and add it to my profile there. Not hard to do.
I went around looking at hot sauce on there and after 20 different sellers refusing to ship to Canada and not really being in need of anything at all. I decided to use it to get a good friend who has less than I do something for her cats. She has a wish list you see. So I pick a cat carrier that is eligible for free shipping. It's enough that I figure with 12% tax it should still go threw. After all who has more than 12% tax I figured. Well it would not do it.
So I got on chat with the help desk. She said (after a 20 min. span of not understanding what I was saying and me not being able to say it any better) that it's because there was too much tax. Well so I deleted that one and added in pet food for about $13. Being that I …
