OF HOSPITALS AND BAD RENTAL PROPERTIES

Image
A lot of people complained about the old hospital being torn down. Some wanted it fixed up and still used and others wanted it to be turned into a care home. To be honest, the building was past it's time to say the least. The price to fix it up would have actually been greater than to build the new hospital. I do agree with almost everyone that the hockey arena should have been built in the place the hospital was and the hospital down town. That is a given. The sad thing is, there are a couple of rental properties in town where the building is in no better shape than the old hospital was. I was in one a while back and it was like walking into the third world. The smell of cat shit and stale booze mixed in with filth everywhere I looked, all topped off with the fact the paint was pealing and the walls where cracked. No one should have to live like that and I often wonder how in the world it passes inspection. I kind of am to the point I wonder if they even bother to inspect these pl…

EARLY MORNING IN PHOTOS

Image
Very early this morning in photos. Actually about 3:30 am. Strangely it's when I did the dishes. Been piddling rain for days. This is the parking lot. Mixing bowel ready to be washed. The empty sink after the dishes are done. My scrubby sponge.

OF BEANS AND TOMATOES

Image
I used to use the diced ones, but now I use the hole ones. There seems to be a vast difference in taste. The diced ones don't taste that good at all compared to these ones. There also is a bit less salt for some reason.

I been using the no salt added beans as well with these when I do the bean mix. Sometimes it's more money for them, but they are better for me in the long run.

1 STAR REVIEWS EH?

Image
Been using Amazon for years now and have had almost no issues with things I got. Only 3 times have I had to return anything or ask for a refund. The first time was a blind I ordered and it did not have all the hardware in it. Instead of sending the mounting brackets, they had me send in the unit and sent a new one. The second time was "fortune cookie Pusheen" a bootleg stuffed toy from China that was an obvious knock off. The last time was a $1.85 item that never got here in the mail.
So I've noticed that now and then there will be a review like this one shown in the screen capture. They refer to the wrong item and I have to wonder how this happens. You see when you have a list of items to review, it shows an actual photo of the item and the name of the item. So how they clicked the wrong thing I don't know but - yeah I'm sure it happens now and then. LOL.
The best 1 star review I ever seen though was on the "6 inch Pusheen plush". That was LITERALLY the …

Weight Loss Term 3 Week 26

Term 3 Week 26: -1.4 lbs

Cheated a little bit this last week. Won't be doing that this week as I don't get paid until after I weigh in the next time. Well I do the day before, but I think I can hold off 1 day before I hit some chips or something.
Legs where bothering me so I did not get my walking in. Next week I should get my walking in just fine I think. Interesting side note, when I have a fibromyalgia flair my legs are almost never effected.

SUNBEAM BATTERIES FROM THE DOLLAR TREE - REVIEW

Image
OK Got these at the dollar tree. Now up here in Canada everything in there is $1.25. There are 6 of them in a pack. The only last 1/3 the time of the energizer ones. So adjusting for needing 3X as many of them in the same time they are about $0.62 per unit. The energizer ones do last 3 times as long but at the best price I have seen they are $0.83 per unit to put in my remote. So it actually does pay to get them at the dollar tree, but only just. If you put in the value of changing them 3 times as much, then you are more than likely better off with the energizer ones. In the USA where it's actually only $1 for them, the unit price is $0.50 BTW (still adjusting for 3X as many of them). But on a side note, "super heavy duty" my ass.

THE ANGER OF THE CHRONIC VICTIM

Image
A group of us online have been the focus of a rather unbalanced person this last year. This person has turned on a lot of their friends and pushed them away with outright abuse. The worst part of it, this person also sees them self as the one who is the victim. The reality of course is plain to see that her anger and aggressive nature has caused people to turn from her.
For most people (balanced people) when someone chooses to walk out of your life they are gone and you might think of them now and then but there is no obsession over them. For people like the one I'm talking about however, they can't get it go. They need to play the victim and that means attacking the person over and over again in hopes they will say something back in reaction so they can say to themselves, "look they are hurting me, I'm justified in all this needless anger".
Reality never sets in that they caused the split in the first place as they need to be a victim. They also need to keep addin…

CHICO THE WONDER DOG

Image
This is Chico. He was my dog for the most part. He would want to be picked up as soon as I got home and held for a while. He was a suck to say the least LOL.
I would take him for a walk and knew his turn around point. The thing is, he would demand that we keep going instead of turning around. This would end up with him eventually wanting to be picked up and carried home.
There was a dog next door to us there named Tiko. They would run up and down the fence line then stop and touch noses and wag their tails at each other. Now and then Tiko would end up at our place for a couple days as the owners went away. This was heaven for both the dogs.
He loved the car. It did not have to be my car, any car would do LOL. Thus you had to watch him as he would go with anyone who offered.
He had back issues in his older days and would step down a step on the deck and stretch his back and it would pop all the way down. Mom hated that sound, but it made him feel better in the mornings.
In the end he ended …

HURT TOE DAY 3

Image
It's looking a lot better today and not nearly as painful, but a bit of an ouch if I move it too much. I'm rather glad it was just dislocated and not broken as that always ends in pain for weeks on end. The swelling has gone down as well.
Them feet need some attending too though. Maybe in January when there is extra money from the GST rebate I'll have them done. I don't even have a clue how much money it is to have someone clean them up.

SUMMER TRIPS TO THE MOUNTAINS

Image
I don't seem to have any photos of us in Fernie at all, so here is one in the crows nest pass.
We would spend every other summer for a long time in Fernie B.C. staying in a crowded trailer with family. They had a lot of kids you see and it was rather fun to be with a large group.
There was one time I remember when we had some fireworks. My brother shot one off from a rock and it fell over before it went off. It flew straight for the road and just as it blew up over the road a RCMP car came around the bend. The dang thing went off right in front of the car. Well they hit the breaks and we took off into the bush.
We never did get caught thank God and even though it was hard for me to keep a secret when I was that age, I never did tell Mom and Dad. I don't know if they found out but nothing was said. After all there was a hoard of other kids with us that may of spilled it to their parents.
There was for most of the time we went there a mountain with smoke coming out of it in several …

SPIDERS, RED ANTS AND A FARM

Image
So I see this big spider sitting there on the heating rad. I go get some paper to kill it with and toss it in the toilet and when I get back the spider is gone. Sigh.
See I really dislike spiders. I'm not to the point where just seeing one makes me lose it, but now that I know it's in here and I can't find it I'm nervous. I will however lose my mind if one gets on me or I wake up and see one on the ceiling over top of me.
I can trace it back to a moment when I was a very young boy (maybe 5 or 6) and I saw this white thing on a leaf. So I scratched it open with my finder and all the sudden my tinny hand was covered in baby spiders. Well, I lost it and was literally running in a circle screaming. The fact all the spiders where off me by this point was not helping me, I had lost control of my senses.
This was at a farm near Yourkton Saskatchewan, then owned by my Uncle and Aunt. The same next day in my short pants I decided to kick that big pile of dirt sitting by the tree l…

GOVERNMENT WANTS US TO PLAN AHEAD BEFORE GOING TO THE ER

Image
Ended up in the ER about midnight. My eyes where burning like crazy and there was this pin pick sensation in the eyes as well. So I got a ride in.
Well took not that long to get in and out, about an hour. This is good for our ER as normally I'm in there for many hours.
In any event, turns out it's a delayed reaction to something I encountered. That means that I'll never know what caused it. But today it's not as bad and I don't think I'll bother getting the drops he prescribed. They are almost certain to NOT be covered as well, so I'll save the money for my friends big night out instead.
Here is the ticket. A lot of poor people rely on the ability to get a free cab ride home from the hospital. We don't tend to have a lot of money to spend on a $15 or $20 cab ride. You see the hospital instead of being in the center of town is way out on the edge of the city. So it's a long ride back in.
I got a ride in from a friend who would not be able to give me a ri…

YES I'M GOING ON ABOUT YOUTUBE PREMIUM AGAIN

Image
The other night I was having issues with cramping all over my body and could not sleep. I was also having my typical fibro flair and had a headache from hell with it and pain in my back, neck and chest (no not heart, chest muscles).
So I put on the music and sat there for about 2 hours listening to old music from my younger days and trying to become tired enough to sleep.
Eventually I did get tired enough, but it was a broken sleep. This is why I pay money to have YouTube music uninterrupted. I can go for hours and not have to have my mind distracted by adverts. I also pay the extra $2 to get YouTube Premium so I don't get ads on the YT app and get the original content they have provided for the service.

I used to have a service called CRAVE TV that was $10.99 and I ditched it when they took away a lot of shows I wanted to watch for some stupid reason. so for $11.99 I get YouTube premium and it includes the Music portion with it.
The ability to have it play in the background is also a …

Jalapeno Poppers FTW

Image
Jalapeno Poppers are one of the greatest joys in the world I think. These things are AWESOME. These particular ones have Jalapeno Jack cheese in them. It's just good. The best I think I ever had was blue cheese in them, but it's a bit strange for texture to most people. A perfect snack time will have these units and some garlic stuffed olives and some onion rings (bear battered).
The only thing is, my tummy don't really like deep fried anything anymore. So it gave me issues. See I keep forgetting I'm broken and can't just eat stuff I love any more. Oh well. It was worth it for the joy it gave me.
These ones where given to me by a friend BTW. They where from Pizza Pizza and quite good. There was also a Salad that was mildly good.

The Depression Trilogy - My View

Image
This movie is part of a trilogy called the depression trilogy. It has AntichristMelancholia and Nymphomaniac (Vol 1 and Vol 2)
Yes, I know, it's 4 movies. Volume 2 is not considered part of the trilogy for some reason - but I recommend watching it, as it's deeply linked to volume 1.
I have not seen Melancholia yet. I have seen the others however and love them.
Antichrist is interesting as it is filled with symbols that could be meaningless to the vast majority of people. It also literally gives away the ending with something the woman says. To the best of my reasoning the "three beggars" have the following meaning. Deer - Birth/motherhood. Fox - the suffering that is our own existence. Crow - Harbinger of the soul (death). The movie has intentionally made most of the dialog very quiet. Almost everything you see has meaning. There is more to the story in what you see than what they say. There is extreme sexuality and violence in this movie. Rated it: 8/10
Melancholia - …

GOT LOTS OF PAPER

Image
I think I have enough butt paper for a while. It should at least last me to the end of next month. Actually it should last me to the end of the month after that.
I have a thing with paper products. Butt paper is the strongest urge of them all to get more long before needed. The paper towel will last a hell of a long time as I almost never use it and I have a large amount of napkins I've collected to use in their place.
Tissues I WILL get more when I get paid, I'll be ordering off Amazon next month and if there is no good deals in the flyers when I go shopping, I will order tissue as an ad-on item. It's always a mildly good deal (not the best though).
I actually had kind of a lot of paper when I went and got 3 packs because they where on sale and the limit was 3. It was a very good deal, so I got them. I was going for a different deal, but this one was better per roll.
In any event, yeah I got enough. This reminds me though, someone I know got robbed once and they took the food…

AND WALKED INTO A DOOR

Image
I literally walked into a door. I thought I'd broken it, but I think it was just dislocated. The pain is not that bad at all today but yeah, it's marked up a bit. To the left was yesterday and below is today. I pulled it back into place as it was pointing up in the air when I banged into the door.  I know look at all the dead skin - I cleaned most of it off today, but I need a pro cleaning to get it all I think. It's hard for me to reach as putting my leg on the bed bent knee is hard on the joints and causes pain.
