I Love Coffee

Image
I love coffee and I think if the doctor told me to quit I'd tell him "guess I'm going to die".

I drink a pile of it though, as in a 12 cup pot ever single day at least, sometimes more.

In the last 25 years I have had at LEAST 125,000 cups of coffee. It kind of ads up when you do the math. I'm sure it's more though, as some times I had more than 12 cups.

I have also spent a vast amount of time in coffee shops over that time frame. Some of the best conversations of my entire life have been over coffee though.

My Mom used to drink 2 or 3 posts of it every single day for decades and never had any problems sleeping. I on the other hand have had sleep problems since I was 10, so it can't be the coffee LOL.

Dad never really drank that much of it in fact almost never drank coffee. I find that interesting being that most people he knew did drink a lot of it.

Most of my friends love coffee. In fact one of them have invested a lot of money into things to make coffee with …

Prevent Things From Going Missing Sigh

Image
So this is in the laundry room and well, it's just a good idea to not just leave things around. The majority of people seem to toss things in the machine and go back to the apartment and leave it. I never do this.

Years ago I had some freak take literally ALL my socks from the dryer. After that I have always stayed be the machine until it was done. I am not going to trust people not to be taking my things.

That being said, it's a sad reality that this sign is needed at all. When I was young we could trust people not to take things, in fact it was very uncommon when I was a kid for people to steal stuff. Now if you look away for 10 seconds it's gone.

I don't know if anyone here has ever had it happen, but I'm not going to just trust people. There is WiFi in the basement, so I play on my phone and wait for the machines to finish. I also do a little walking at times - as I tend to do it late at night and no one else is there.

Winter Has Changed This Last While

Image
This was actually done up about 5 days ago and I'm just getting to posting it. We now have a light dusting of snow and it's freaking cold out there. That being said, not long ago we used to get a great deal of snow this time of year. For the last 3 or 4 years there has been very little snow and it's been warm most of the winter with cold patches (like today).
I have lived here (in Moose Jaw) most of my 51 years and I can tell you it's not been like this most of the time. I can literally only remember 1 winter with very little snow from when I was younger and only a couple of winters that where warm. I can't remember at all a January where it was above freezing, yet it has done that most of this January.
It's interesting I think. In fact one time about 20 years ago a friend and I almost got stuck at a truck stop in May because it snowed 2 1/2 feet of snow in the 3 hours we where out there. If it was not for a medical emergency would would have been toast and had t…

What I Eat Last Week And Planning For Shopping

Image
Well last week I managed to drop 6 lbs, despite ordering Pizza and having a couple of burgers. You see here a large thin crust with Pepperoni, bacon, jalapenos and banana peppers. The entire thing slathered in extra hot - hot sauce. There was also extra cheese. I exploded most of the next day.
This is home made veggie soup. I had this for 2 days, then went back to the beans and veggies. It was actually kind of good for one of those don't think about it and just toss things into the pot kind of deals.

I get paid on Tuesday (this is Sunday) and I am going back to the beans and veggies twice a day and chicken and veggies for dinner. It's not like I stick to this veggie diet thing after all, so lets just up and get some chicken.

I also want to get some hamburger (beef gives me a headache but I love that stuff so I eat it now and then) and make some super hot chili in the slow cooker. Also want to make lazy cabbage rolls as I have not done that since before Mom died (at least 6 years)…

Looking At The Past 10 Years

Image
In the past 10 years things have changed a lot. I became a member of Facebook - gained and lost friends and had tragedy and joy. Here is some of that.
May 19, 2009 at 6:55pm I posted my first Facebook profile pic and this was it. So it's almost 9 years I been on FB it seems. There have been people come and go but a lot of very good people have stayed and I have become quite close to them. Social media can actually be very important to disabled people or the elderly who can't get out to socialize that often. It can in fact be a life saver in the literal sense of the term. First "Art Post" on Facebook not long after I started up. This really is me in 2009 (summer) with a gimp mask on having some fun with a friend. Don't ask, you don't want to know LOL. It was near the end of that kind of thing in my life. Since then I have been a rather dull person and very much not interested in things of that manner at all now. Soon after this I sold off all my toys and became a…

Why I Don’t Think I Have Asperger’s

So, I was told some time back that I had some form of Autism most likely Asperger’s Syndrome. I have come to realize that I don’t think the nice health care professional know what the heck they were talking about. Now I do a few things that can be considered “stimming” and I used to at one time get very upset very easy, but that was when I was not medicated and I’m sure stemmed from a very different mental illness. I also no longer get manic as hell and stay up for 3 days doing what I would at the time think was “great art” only to realize when I came down “this sucks”.
Top 10 signs you have Asperger’s Syndrome
You have inflexible routines Um NO – I do things at random generally as the mood sparks me.
You have trouble displaying emotion Um NO – I display emotion better than most people in fact.
You have trouble figuring what is appropriate in social situations I’ll give you this one, because I just up and start talking about bondage and blurting out swear words.
You lack empathy Um NO – I am e…

Windows 10 RANT

Image
So dang it all to heck it reset while I was typing yet again. Windows 10 is junk and ignores your settings. I set the time to tell it the PC is busy at this time frame and it ignores it. I went to the advanced tab and clicked the nicely hidden box that says "show more notifications" that is supposed to warn you it's going to rest. None of this helped at all. It just up and resets with no warning at all - BOINK rest time...
Then there is the matter of it CONSTANTLY restring my file associations. I will never in my life desire windows media or any other Micro$oft junk to play video or audio files - I have a much better tool for that. Ever last time the thing updates (ever 2nd or 3rd day) it sets them back to the crap media player. AHHHHH!
Then there is the start menu and them advertising apps I will never want to install. Yes, I know there is a setting to turn that off - but it keeps coming back after an update. This is so annoying - why the crap do you have a cloud to save …

Sometimes a Lie is to Spare People Pain

When my Dad died, I was driving him home from the hospital in Regina. He had an operation and was taken off blood thinners - this killed him. The fact is though, if they did not take him off he would have bled to death on the operating table - so it was a no win situation.
He did in the passenger seat beside me as I drove down the highway. I ended up driving over 90 mph to the hospital in town. There was no way he was doing to make it and even if we did stop and give CPR he would not have come back. It was his 3rd heart attack and he was just barley functioning before it, so it was the end no matter what.
The doctor that talked to us after the pronounced him dead told us "he did not suffer it was quick and painless". Now I saw it happen and this was not the reality. He suffered terrible pain for at least 10 seconds. The distorted look on his face showed me that he was suffering greatly.
Mom needed this to be the reality though and there was no way on earth I would have ever tol…

Anxiety

Image
This is for Anxiety ridden people such as myself and many others I know. When it was very bad and I could not leave the house, I got all of these and more said to me. Pills work, but they made me feel like I was floating away and I hated it - I could not think on them. Now it's way better, but still a thing in my life. Cannabis oil (no THX) seems to have helped it kind of a lot and the amount to attacks are very much down and the extreme attacks don't really happen any more - just small ones. But trust me, no one with Anxiety can just snap out of it or just push threw it if it's bad enough, it will cripple them.

Likewise Basic 6-Outlet Wall Tap

Image
The "Likewise Basic 6-Outlet Wall Tap" was $7.19 at Canadian Tire. Not all things I own could be plugged into this as they would overlap (plug too wide) but most things will fit side by side. Just be aware that larger plugs like the one on my coffee grinder will not fit beside another plug.
It is grounded and plugs into both sockets on the wall. Some I have seen only have the one plug into the wall and it's not as solid as this.
That being said, it does wiggle a bit when you plug things into it or unplug them. I got it so I would not have to unplug my 3 main items in the kitchen. Just the coffee grinder gets unplugged after for safety.
They had the old style Noma ones that fit firmly over of plug face against the wall and if you want something more solid you will be paying twice as much to get it. The lower priced Noma Taps are the same as this, they just have more room between plugs - and are only $1.50 more than this.
I don't really need the extra room to plug things i…

Bean Around the World - Rainforest Organic Dark Roast Coffee

Image
I have to say this is one of the top 10 best coffee's I've had in my life. It is very full bodied and rich. The dark taste is almost to the point of extreme and is very good. The smoky overtones of this coffee are very pleasant as well and ads greatly to the taste. Slightly acidic and not too bitter for a dark roast. It's a classic French roast coffee to perfection.

Sleep Deprived and CFS at the Same Time

Image
So I've had way too much coffee today and I'm never going to sleep tonight. Well, OK, I don't sleep most nights even if I don't have any coffee that day, it ends up the same as if I had lots of it.
Been doing a lot of late night music listening with the headphones on. It's been a problem on and off for the vast majority of my life, so I don't think it's going to stop happening any time soon.
It all started when I was 10 (literally) and never ended. If I get a solid sleep, it's because I was so tired my body just went into a mini-coma. I will spend up to 10 days in a row with little to no sleep and this last couple of days are worse than normal.
To top it off my body is cramping up all over and as soon as I lay down in bed my legs and back and arms start acting up. Speaking of back there is a new kind of pain that feels like a tummy ache but is in the back not the front. I got not one clue what it is.
But anyway, every single time I been in the hospital they…

Dinner Was

Image
Bed of white rice, some beef and tomato and some ginger beef for dinner yesterday, today it was liver bacon and onions. Sine I fell off the wagon with the candy I thought, why not.

New feature on my Samsung Galaxy S7 "Easy Mode". Just hit Easy and it does it all for you, you don't have to even point the camera. LOL

Random Stuff

Image
I am the world famous AxeMoose, known be tens of people - Worship at my alter of vlogging and blogging HAHA.  This is the old internet trend so this graffiti is dated - the new thing is eating a Tied Pod.  Sometimes I am in too much of a hurry and forget to take the bar out of the wrapper. (Suspiration)...  I think I'm one of 7 old metal heads that did not like Slayer all that well, but they where OK I guess. Who am I kidding the BLEEPING ROCKED.  And 3 documentaries about music.  I hate it when speed bumps are mad at the world. This was in the laundry room - left it there.

What's New In The Apartment

Image
Got a new night stand and put it together today. I like it but the top is less deep than the old one, still at least the drawer is not coming apart like the old one was. This is the old night stand and the new one on the other side. The drawer is broken so there is nothing in it and I have it sort of fixed to not fall apart, but it can't be used as a drawer no more. But it holds Pusheenicorn and Kleenex, so it's of use. This little chair was where the old night stand used to be since I moved in and I had the Kleenex and both Pusheenicorns on it - now it's in the living room. I need to vacuum it and my easy chair. Put my multi charger on the floor by the chair - I might see if I can get something to put under it just in case it fails, so it won't melt the carpet or something. Not worried about it really, but you never know. I had to put a longer cord on to use the phone while charging though.  So the fridge has a plastic top on it, so I can't put the microwave on it. Th…
