My Friend Has No Taste

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 say? BTW the top end of coffee is "Blue Mountain Blend." We both had a cup of it at a friends place. This is an orgasm in a cup if you ask me. It's the perfect cup of coffee and it literally rolled the eyes back in my head. He looks at me and says "This really sucks, but I don't want to tell them." This is a bag of coffee that casts more than he makes in a week. BUT oh well, NO TASTE. Oh well this is the same guy who thinks he can talk the dealer into selling him a new car for $4000 less than a used one tax included. I almost spit my coffee out at him at this point. But oh well. He is a good guy really and has done a lot for a lot of people. But he has some strange ideas and NO TASTE in coffee. He also hates whisky - so NO TASTE.

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

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 me and hang up. How about next time I phone the cops and report it as harassment? Literally you people and your spotty internet service are hanging on by a thread here. Even with Sasktel being 1/3 the upload speed, I really am tempted to get on with them instead. You people have literally nothing else going for you than the faster upload speed. NOTHING. Unholy God of the Underworld, stop causing me so much frustration. Keep your freaking internet actually on and don't CALL. That last part is something I can't stress enough. And if you are stupid enough to call, at least DON'T HANG THE HELL UP on me. DANG!

Oh Look - I'm not alone.

And Then I Went On Chat

  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 not smart enough to log back into the Wi-Fi. And both the previous days I got that horrid beep when I turned it on telling me it was NOT connected. Well it’s literally 10 inches from the modem (yes, I measured it). So now this the other two days where “interference”. Well guess what I have access too? A Wi-Fi analyzer and guess what I did with it? First thing I found out that there is literally no other signal on my floor. Strange thing is, there are less than 15 signals in the entire building and there are 94 people living here. You would think more of them would have Wi-Fil but NOPE. BTW one of them signals is from the open Wi-Fi in the main floor and the basement of the building (shame I can’t get my box to connect to that – I could watch way more Netflix and Kodi streams and not use up my bandwidth LOL). So anyways there is literally no one in range of me that is on the channel I am using (that reminds me after hard resetting the modem, I need to put it back on that channel). So not to likely. The other thing is anyone in range of me is at half strength or less. So, that kind of rules out cross mod – oh wait that does not really apply to Wi-Fi, My bad. Really kind of wondering why they are denying that there was a national outage in the first place? Also, really kind of wondering why then they said it was “scheduled” in the same conversation where they said it did not exist? BTW in the summer they had MASSIVE problems with their DNS servers for some stupid reason. People where losing the ability to get on the net for days on end. Like this, the outage did not affect everyone. Still no word from them saying “ops our bad” from that one. I set my DNS lookup to Google DNS servers instead now so that kind of fixed that. So, Google can record where I go – who cares, at least I no longer have that problem and others seem to still be having now and then. OH WAIT – I forgot to mention, he claimed I was online on the 22nd because I downloaded 500mb and uploaded 320mb. Well I did say it dropped in the middle of the NIGHT. Sigh. I did NOT say I was offline for 3 days, instead that I dropped connection 3 times in 3 days. All I can say is Shaw is turning into Comcast. There is a reason there is a group on Facebook to bash Shaw in I think. Not that I care to join, I rather blather on in this blog that almost no one will read. Like even if they did, they got as far as this? NOPE I am sure they read a few lines then wondered off to watch a cat video or something. People’s attention spans are very limited these days. And all this is because they can’t just up and say “yes service failed”. Oh well. Now go read the recipe I posted before this.

Sausage and Bead Soup

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.

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 on the wrong account. My bad.

 OK it inserted them backward - bottom one should be above. But it shows how long it was and I reset the modem 4 times in this time frame... One of them being the hard reset with a paperclip that makes it so you have to set up the modem AGAIN after. They gave me bullshit about interference. Will I used a WiFi analyser to find the channel and band that would be best for me and on the one I have it set to, there is no way I am getting interference. So once again I call Bull Shit.

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.

Life Hack:
Tried of the JW's coming to you door? Well the radical right is in power now. Just shoot them and tell the cops they where Gays coming to indoctrinate you. Make sure to put some glitter on them to make it look convincing.

Life Hack:
Is the baby out of diapers and you are too drunk to go get more? Just tape a plastic bag to their but with duct tape. This will keep them till morning.

Life Hack:
Tired of dirty homeless people eating your trash? Sprinkle drano on the food before you toss it out. They won't come back twice.

Life Hack:
Cops need to know you won't take shit from them. If they stop you tell them to fuck off and refuse to produce ID. If they ask more then 3 times toss junk out of the car at them and they will go away.

Life Hack:
If you secretly mock those who oppose you in your head, you won't start conflict and won't feel bad that they don't like you.

Life Hack:
Fake air buds will make it look like you have the latest and greatest phone. No one will ever know you don't even own a phone.

Life hack:
Is porn causing you to sin? Well have your hands cut off and you won't be able to access the internet or flip threw a magazine. It will also make it very hard to play with yourself.

How To Have An AWESOME Night.

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

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 was my 50th and I wanted to do something for it. So for the rest of them unless I manage to live to be 100, will be sitting at home and watching movies and eating pizza. BTW notice the Canadian (or UK) spellings of two of the words. I told many people there is NO E in whisky up here LOL. And they did spell my name wrong - but they have only known me for like 20 years, so I can pass that off LOL. I love my friends and this will be a memory I keep with me for the rest of my life. So many good times and good things. Not to mention the AWESOME burger I had out for dinner with my friends. I am a lucky person to have such good friends and to be able to do all the things I can do. I am blessed and I am grateful.

Logo Play

PaintShop Pro X9 Ultimate. Used Eyecandy with it for the glass and flame effects. Custom reflection map for the glass. Yes I realise the glass bits are not quite centred. Next time a more readable font as well LOL.


 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

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 for free. This may or may not be legal in all countries but it is in Canada and the USA at this time. The device is fast and easy to navigate and you can install extra apps (just keep in mind you only have about 4GB of storage that is usable after the preinstalled apps). There is external storage slot that receives a micro-SD card up to 32GB in size. Note that Android apps don’t normally like being on an SD card – most of them will not install to SD. So the card is handy for music or movies and so on. It will also let you plug in a USB jump drive and my 64GB stick was no problem for it. I read that it will see an external drive to 1TB but I have not tried this as mine are all 2TB drives. The GPU seems to keep up to most games even though I don’t play anything too graphics intensive.

Downside is I had to do a factory reset on the device to get it to work properly for one reason or the other. If you set it to turn all the way off you will have to connect to the WiFi manually again in the settings. This is a BIG minus to me. But it works fine in the default mode of just going to sleep when you turn it off. Then you don’t have to worry about the WiFi. Some might think it is frozen on wake up as it takes almost a full minute to be responsive to the remote in any way. I have no idea why this is, but if you turn it on and go get your coffee and a snack before you use it, life is good and you don’t have to worry about this.

Summery, I paid a bit less than $88 CDN for this device shipped so it’s a low cast device. The same manufacturer has one with 16GB of storage and it’s a bit faster to wake up but I am fine with this one. The device is the size of a pack of smokes so it does NOT take up much room at all. It has an HDMI cable, but it is short. I have had many hours of entertainment from it and would recommend the device to anyone. I think there might be heat related issues if you where to watch for more than five or six hours though – I have not done that personally. For the price you can get one for everyone in your family or one for the big TV and one for the bedroom. 4/5 stars.

Being funny...

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...

Kermit the frog is into fisting so Mrs Piggy is his beard...

Well I fell... I missed my saving throw vs dexterity and I fell up this time. Now I am on the ceiling and can't get back down. I lost 6HP.

Man "Make Merica great again hay"? Well he outsourced all his hacking to Russia - sooooo...

They told me this was a vegetarian dish!
