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

 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 has picked up quite a bit since we where complaining about it. Not sure abut the food as I have not eaten there since that day. But good to see things improve. We have been going there almost 20 years now.
 The same as above just in the back. It looks like such a nice day, but it's -12C and the wind is light but cold. Tomorrow is going to be -20 they say. Not looking foreword to that at all.

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 something other than yourself. Search for a better now. Be the one who changes your life and be the one who changes many lives. But be it for the good. We have had way more than enough of people changing the world for the bad. And don't forget you know almost nothing.
Peace - Dave

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?

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 and not 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 have $50 with tax and shipping it should be good. NOPE it won't go threw. So back to the lady on chat and tell her this won't work as well. She had not one clue as to why. Well I did some looking and on a forum I read one person say that some companies that dead threw Amazon do NOT allow you to use the gift card. I think to myself, "why is this not stated instead of just saying enter payment option"? Well what ever... So I go and I delete the pet food and click on another pet food that is actually more money and no free shipping. Guess what? It went threw. The nice lady on the chat had no clue as to why this one worked and why the other 2 did not.

So I was left thinking, "what the hell is the forum right"? I guess it must be. I can't see any reason why it would be that way. After all the money is handled by Amazon and then they take a cut and send the rest to the distributor. So why would this be happening? I have literally no explanation for it at all. It makes no sense to me. But I am left thinking it is so... Who knows, it's not to be found on the site or threw the help desk LOL.

Oh well Crouton gets pet food and I don't have $50 sitting there that I will never use and will forget I have. So it all works out in the end. Happy eating Crouton and the other kitties. It should be there between the 18th and the 20th. Enjoy little buddies. All in all this is better than if I got my hot sauce anyway.

Peace, Love and Contentment - Dave :)

Oh Poor Drama Queen...

Awww. Are you all pissy that I was watching Sons of Anarchy at 10pm? Make sure you slam the shit out of the door and start your hissy fit the exact moment I turn it off. LOL I just love that the person who makes the most noise in this entire building is so darn offended when I make a sound. Day or night the guy is pissy about me enjoying life in my own apartment. Got to fucking love that. Too bad crazy fucktard. Unlike you I am not in the hall at 2:30am making all kinds of noise on the phone and slamming the door - thus waking everyone else up. God your far to young to be angry for literally no reason. Do you see me getting all pissing and slamming doors or banging walls when you are being a cunt? Oh wait that is not the right word, them things have a use in this world. You on the other hand have no use but to be a drama queen. Congrats on proving that maturity. So tell me, why the hell did you move into an apartment building if you did not want anyone but you to make noise? Grow the fuck up.

P.S. If you need me I will be singing till 5am. Hymns that is :)

Ode to Kevin Spratts Perfect Rant :)

Literally 90% of people never rate, ever. So random people wondering in would not be getting you 6 or 7 dislikes at all. It only makes sense if it's 1 small minded person doing it. The other thing is if 99.9% of people don't like your content they will never be back. You would literally have to be insane to keep watching someone if you don't like them. That alone proves a mental disorder. The mood swings are also a big tell of a profound mental disorder. And to look at the amount of people he is doing this to, would take a long time to say the least. That shows obsession and more than likely paranoia and strongly paranoid at that. His tenancy to go after women who have PTSD shows that he has a strong hatred of women. This is more than often because a person can NOT deal with they sexuality and they blame women for their malfunctions. As well the majority of people with Bipolar and Schizophrenia think they are A: smarter than everyone they encounter; B: Think that everyone they encounter is trying to harm them in some way. C: that anything they do to protect themselves against the perceived enemy is OK to do. A lot of people I follow on here and on FB have lived for many years with both disorders and where medicated. This made them normal people again. But for some reason the ones who are most out of control are the ones who refuse medication. They almost always think that they are very creative and that it would interfere with that creative process. The majority of the time the delusions and mania are holding them back from being truly creative. Only a handful of people in history where both strongly mentally ill and very creative. The rest just tinkered with crap and though it was misunderstood.

In response to the video below :) P.S. I rate this rant "Fucking A!" - As in really good.
