My Friend Has No Taste

Image
I told a friend he needs a "french press". His response? "They make terrible coffee". Sigh... NO they make the BEST coffee - you just have to drink it right away. He then goes on to tell me, "I make a pot then put it in the fridge and heat up a cup now and then for the next 2 or 3 days." This is when I realise he literally has NO taste at all. If he thinks 3 day old re-heated coffee is the best thing ever, then he has no taste - I am sorry... This is NOT an acceptable practice to someone who really loves good coffee. He also seems to think that the pod coffee makes make crappy coffee. Again NO TASTE. They are expensive and a pain in the ass, but they make awesome coffee. I then ask me (knowing the answer) "How do you like espresso?" His reply "It's the worst coffee imaginable." Yup NO TASTE. I wanted to make an analogy about 3 day old coffee and licking an ass, but I am kind of sure he is into that kind of shit... So... What can I …

Shaw Cable - What Part Of NO CALL LIST Don't You Get

Image
So I got very tired of Shaw Cable calling me on the phone for promotions I have NO interest in. So I told them to put me on the NO CALL LIST. This was months ago. Many months ago. Since then on no less than 3 occasions I have had them phone me, let it ring a few times and before I could answer they hung up. I guess who ever the HELL is calling sees AFTER they call that I am on the no call list. Sigh. OMG is this annoying. Do you really want me to switch to Sasktel or something? Because ya know, this is over the top annoying. There are few things in this world I dislike more than hangups like that. So get your SHIT together Shaw Cable. HOLLY CRAP. This time it was from their local office for some stupid reason. The other times it was their call centre. Good lord in HELL what part of send me a flipping email don't you get? First you give me all kinds of runaround about the outage that lasted ALL NIGHT - saying it never happened then claiming it was a planned outage - now you phone m…

And Then I Went On Chat

Image
OK here we go. So, I just chatted with Shaw Cable on Facebook about the outage on the 23rd that lasted all early morning. When I emailed them, they claimed there was NO outage that day. In chat again claimed there was no outage that day – so I sent the screen cap of their web page saying there was a national internet outage in progress. Then the person claimed this was a “Planed outage” and I had mentioned that it was funny that it was no longer on the page in the list of outages. So, what do they say “we archive them after 24 hours”. Yet still on the page is one from the 22nd and one for the 15th. Kind of wonder how they managed to NOT archive those ones and managed to archive this one. Also, they claimed my Modem was online all the time the two previous days. Here is the ticket – they don’t know if I dropped connection for anything less than the time it takes to do a sweep so that is BS in the first place. The other thing is my Android box when it losses connection to the Wi-Fi is…

Sausage and Bead Soup

Image
5 Hot Italian Sausages cut up.
2 Small cans of stewed tomato's.
1 Can pork an beans.
1 TSP Brown Curry powder (optional)
3 Cans lentils (drained and rinsed).

Place in slow cooker in order as above. Do not mix. Cook on low for 8 hours. Mix and serve. * Note the tomato's will all but dissolve in the process. Do NOT cook the sausage in advance. There is a high amount of fat in this soup.

Sigh... I Call BS On You.

Image
So I had an outage of internet last night that lasted about 9 hours. This is the 3rd night in a row and I am a bit put out about it so I emailed them as said "I want compensation for this". What did I get in response, a denial that there was any issues in my aria. Well here are the screen shots... LOTS of them. First is the bulletin on Shaw's support page for outages then the next one should be another local person complaining about it being OUT. The rest are from all over the country complaining it was out. So ya know... Don't tell me there was NO ISSUE. I call Bull Shit on that. BTW Forgot to screen cap the other person who complained this is 3 nights in a row just like I did... And I am unwilling to get get my phone from the other room...

 Oh look this one is actually in the same city as me.
 Bet this fellow got the same Bull Shit I did.
 This is me responding to the other person in Moose Jaw.

 Yes this is my YouTube related twitter. Fucked up and bitched a 2nd time o…

Life Hacks

Life Hack:
Coffee in the drive-threw too hot? Drop it on your crotch then sue the company. If they say there is a warning on the cup tell them you can't read. Let them prove you can - I dare them.

Life Hack:
Tired of being on a diet? Well just as many skinny ass people drop dead of a heart attack or stroke - so eat that pizza. What is the worst thing that will happen?

Life Hack:
Tired of medical bills and travelling for tests? Well things like Endoscopes can be purchased from China for $8 on the internet. Just hock it to the phone then email the photos to your Doctor.

Life Hack:
Tired of your parents telling you what to do? Move out, get a job and pay your own way. That will show them.

Life Hack:
If no one will listen to you, flood Facebook with meme's. This will eventually make people see the light and change their mind. It works every time.

Life Hack:
Your political party did not make it into office? Just get some friends together and go start a riot.

How To Have An AWESOME Night.

Image
Step one: put one some tunes and rock the heck out.
Step two: Have a few beer while you listen to music.
Step three: Put a splash of Rye in a glass
Step four: Top with coke then watch a movie on Nexflix or Kodi
Step five: Order a pizza then repeat steps 3 and 4.
Step six: Answer the door naked holding a Pusheen stuffy and insist it's a real cat.
Step seven (not shown): Have another rye and coke while eating the pizza and watch another movie. Repeat this step once or twice.
Step eight: lay on the floor and wait for your Facebook friends to notice you have been missing for two days and hope they EMT's find you before you die.

My 50th Birthday Was The Best Day in 10 Years And The Best Birthday Ever

Image
This was the best birthday ever. Not only was it the best day I had in the last 10 years, but I enjoyed the hell out of it with good Friends. I also cashed in it seems. One person PayPaled me $200 USD. Well that is a HELL of a nice thing that I was not at all expecting. I got some good food ordered in, ordered some good things online I will enjoy for years to come and got to pick up some nice booze with it. Two others sent some money PayPal as well that will cover my online subscriptions for the next two months.Then to top it off I get this card for the Liquor Store and now I can get that fancy 10 year old Bourbon I was eyeing up. Also I was able to go out and spend almost $45 on fancy bourbon at the bar that I would not normally be able to get because of the price of it. So I got to taste 3 I had never tasted and revisit one I love so much. I am grateful to my good friends for all the well wishes, cards and gifts. Normally I don't really make a deal out of my birthday, but this w…

Spam LOLS

LOL so the bank of America has an email on a Japanese server does it? HAHAHA. I'ma fall for that. If you are going to pretend to be an American try hard to use actual English when you send this crap out. I mean if you can't actually communicate in a language in a proper form, don't pretend to be from that country.

RBSCH M96X Android 6.0 Review

Image
4K TV BOX (4K at 30fps) KODI 16.1 Fully Loaded (already has Exodus) XBMC Quad Core A53 2.0GHz 64bit – Penta Core GPU 2GB ram /8GB storage Wifi or LAN 2 USB 2.0 ports Micro-SD slot


Featured apps that come with it are Kodi for searching and streaming music, TV shows or Movies. Netflix, Google Play Store. ShowBox a kind of torrent client for popular movies. Facebook, Twitter, Skype.
I recommend installing Google play music and/or Microsoft Groove. If you get the keyboard with touch pad with it, Word will be a useful tool on it as well. I also installed several games.
I strongly recommend you get the Wireless Keyboard with touchpad with this. Amazon recommended getting them together and I am glad I did. Several apps like Netflix and Google Play Store are very hard to use with the standard remote that comes with the device.
Strong points are it comes with Kodi and you don’t need cable TV after you get Kodi. Just wait two or three days and then the shows you watch will be on the net ready to stream f…

A Bourbon Flight

So late this afternoon I went to the bar with a friend and had a Bourbon Flight. This is the result, I managed to record what I was tasting then looked up the mash bill for the 4 I had a go at. I came home and transposed what I had recorded on voice recorder – Had to put on the ear phones as the music was a bit much in there. Could not do a video because of the music. And all this with a thobing headache. But here it is:
* Buffalo Trace Mash bill: 90% Corn, 18% Rye, 10% Malted Barley ABV: 45% Look: Light brown with hints of red and gold Smell: caramel, citrus peels, honey, cinnamon, brown sugar, marzipan, oak and corn Taste: caramel followed by hints of toffee, burnt sugar, honey, cinnamon and pepper After Taste: dark fruit and, again, subdued vanilla Finish: Woody, caramel.
* Old Grand-Dad Mash bill: 63% Corn, 27% Rye, 10% Malted Barley ABV: 50% Look: Copper colored Smell: caramel and butterscotch, vanilla, caramelized fruit, spice, oak and raw grain. Taste: Caramel, oak, spice and vanilla. After T…

Was at the pub and had to take a pee. I noticed there where no urinals, but I passed it off and just started to pee in the toilet. Then this rude fellow came and said "Get the hell out of my off sale cooler!

Was sitting on the sofa talking to my wife and watching the dog run around the coffee table when I realised I don't have a coffee table... Or a dog... Or a wife...
