Tenants meeting in the hall way LOL

Another bat got in. OK I know how they get in here - threw the vent in the wall in the boiler room. But how the hell do they get in apartments? The doors are kind of low to the floor on this floor at least. We are talking 1/8th of an inch. Can they squish down that flat?
I think this is the 4th one since I moved in. But it happens in the fancy places too - so ya know...

Oh oh oh - when I lived in the stad apartments (glad I am out of there) I had 2 doors. Front and back. The back opened onto the parking lot (building is L shaped). I had it open while I got some stuff out of the car one day and I came back with load number two and here is a cat on my counter looking at me. LOL. That was easy though... Pet cat, pick up cat, put cat outside, close door :)

The guy across the hall tells me the people to the north of me are moving out. Well let me tell ya something, They been there for 2 years and I think I heard them a total of 4 times ever. They have a kid and I ain't never heard that kid but one time and if I remember he was sick that time. They are such nice folks. I can only hope that I get people half as good to be beside.

Oh hay, do you all remember the one that complained she could hear me typing one time? The one that washed her pet (that she was not supposed to have) 3 times a day. See that is what I normally get beside me. HEHEHE... My first apartment I had a guy who partied all night below me and someone who would toss beer bottles at his wife beside me. So it's been gradual improvements along the way :)

This is post number 666 on this blog BTW... Should have come up with something better LOL.

Ignorant People

Ignorant people should not get your money.

Playing For Attention

HA so there is someone trolling in the one YouTube group on Facebook. The kid sounds like a 9 year old on his "Gaming Videos". I see his has almost as many dislikes on his vids as views. I see the big mouth is paying off. He scoffed at someone having only "900" subscribers and he has 10. Anything to get attention hay little kid? Thing is the one he was after has a highly marketable channel. Her videos are not at all what I like to watch, but they are what most people like to watch. The game thing gets old very fast and there are literally millions of them out there, so the chances of a big name gamer on the tubes is about nil. Now I realize I will never be a big name, nor do I want to be. But I have something this fellow will never have in his life - Respect. There are a lot of people who have followed me for years on the tubes and I have followed them as well. We like each other and we are friends. People who lash out for attention might get it, but respect is something they will never have. Nor will they have friends in a true sense of the word. The instead will have people who hate them. Negative attention is all they will get. Nine times out of ten they don't have the ability to be great at the games they play as well. The lack the focus that is needed. They spend way too much time trying to be noticed instead of doing what is required to score the big points and complete the game. So in the end, all they have is an antisocial attitude. This is a disorder of the mind of course. People who fit into society don't tend to be self serving mouth pieces, they tend to be ones who do for others now and then at least. In the end I have nothing but pity for such people. They will never know the joy of true friendship or the wonders of the world around them. Instead all the focus is on attention, "LOOK AT ME"...

Peace, Love and Joy - Dave :)

P.S. even his user name was not original. And I will never think recording game play to be creating original content.

Good Weather and a Killer Squirrel

Outside in the sun. After coffee I did not even have my jacket on.
 A bit of mud but no snow here...
 No more snow...
 On the hunt... Killer squirrel...
Bird eating a squirrel. Never seen this kind of thing before.

A Big Drink

16 oz mug. 4 to 6 oz of whisky then top with coke. This should do it.

Playing with an App

Sometimes things just line up

Sometimes things just line up right to give me a smile. This was my feed on the phone for Facebook.

Garbage Bins Not Standing Up to Winter

The bins don't seem to be standing up to our winters. Not only that, the tops of the large ones seem to bread easily. The one in the centre is for the building next to where I live. They are using ours at the moment as they have yet to replace this one after 3 weeks of it being broken. Ours has a split in the side and it's a matter of time until it's toast as well. The person who collects seems to squeeze the hell out of them with the robot arm they use to put empty them into the truck. Really don't think that is needed.

In The Hall

 Lots of folks here seem to leave the shoes in the hall. It keeps things cleaner inside the apartment you see. I am just not able to do it LOL. I don't trust the world enough. So I track the dirt in instead :)

 Long shot of the hall from my door.

Me in the hall outside my door. Waiting for the cleaner to finish moping the place before I take out the garbage and we go for coffee at Smitties on the North Service Road, here in Moose Jaw.

And of the New Gods

We have replaced God with money and resources. We now worship the rich and give fame to a select few who can do no better than millions of other people. It's strange to me that actors and politicians and just rich people have such a following. These are people who generally do way less than poor people do for the community. We have killed many in the name of resources and gone to war to make them safe. We also looked the other way when hundreds of thousands where being killed in a brutal manner all in the name of tribal identity. After all they did not have resources to offer us. Sooner or later instead off killing in the name of a God or a King we will be doing it to secure limited resources such as drinking water and minerals. We will hide behind the banner of our freedoms and say they are a threat to us. We have already done so after all. The threat of terror was invented by the meddling into of foreign powers in the name of freedom because we did not want the communists to get the oil instead of us. We brought the rise of fundamentalist to arms against us with the training we gave them. Now we use them as an excuse to secure resources. We say we have evolved from the need for God, but in reality it is just trading one excuse for war for another. As long as we put others above us and below us we will never know peace and we will never see an end to the death and rape of the planet. We soon will no longer be able to feed the masses and all because we have so much greed. We grow fat on the oppression of the third world and we are oblivious to our own fate. Just take the time to look around and see what we are doing.

Peace and Love - Dave.

In the Lobby

The lobby at the building where my G.P. has his offices. The elevators are down right small and downright old. No way to get a scooter in there. They made the front of the building accessible then the elevators are still the old ones. It's a nice looking place though put up in the 1930's all brick on the outside and nice inside. The bench is from a church in town and is almost 100 years old and still in perfect shape. How many bits of furniture do we own that will last that long?


 A good wine - rather sweet :) 8.5/10
 Bleck - 5/10
This is down right nummy 8.5/10

Basmati Rice (India)

Long grain rice from India. Packaged for the Co-op but is also available in many other places. It cooks quicker than normal and is less starchy than most I have used. Not good for forming but works well as a side or in soups. Is perfect for cabbage rolls as well. No infused flavours just good white rice. I rate this product 9/10.

Rizatriptan Benzoate 5mg

4 of these darn things set me back $90.11. They did not work at all. No better than an Advil. Dang if I only know. I would have used the extra $90.11... Oh well. A friend uses them though and she swears by them. They are for migraines BTW.
