THE BLIZZARD OF 1978 WE CAN'T FIND ON THE WEB

Image
The worst blizzard of my life was in 1978 and I can't find a single reference to it happening in Saskatchewan on the net. I know people with personal photos from it and several of us remember it well. Dad had to go to work as a cop on a snowmobile and so did the EMS workers. They where phoning houses to see if they needed to be rescued. And why the hell there is not one post on the net that I can find is the strangest thing ever. We where out of school for a week. It took several days for the city to be plowed out and that was just the main streets. I've seen a photo of a friend on the roof of his home and the snow up to the 2nd floor windows. I remember full well my brother and I going out the window to dig out the back door and a path to the 2 gates then the next day a path to the street. Yet nothing at all I can find. Not one photo. I can find them for Manitoba but not for here. Just strange.

A friend found a reference HERE - it's the last entry from Feb 1978. That is th…

THE PRICE OF ESCAPE IS TOO HIGH

Image
Ya know I like to get drunk now and then. Not blind drunk, laying on the carpet till 4pm the next day - but drunk. But I know first hand what it's like when people escape reality all of the time. It never ends well.
We all do it. We have a few drinks of a THC gummy or we watch Netflix all night. We get away from reality for a little while. But then we go back to it and deal with the things we need to deal with.
For people like my brother, escape from reality became the norm. I saw what it did to him. It destroyed him. At one time he was quite fit and strong. By the end he was neither of those things and he has lost his mind.
He had spent years drinking heavily and taking narcotic pain meds at this point. The result was he was not able to tell reality from delusion. This is a pain I know first hand but for a different reason and thank God they got me stabilized with medication. For my brother the medication did not work and had horrible side effects.
In the end after they finally let h…

WHAT I DID WITH THE LITTLE AMOUNT OF MONEY I HAD

Image
The 2 orders where done at once. The other one is all ad-on items. I got the coffee travel mug I wanted so I can take coffee down with me when I do laundry. I also got the emergency radio I wanted. It cranks up to charge and had a light on it. There is a 1000mah phone charger on it as well - you can at least have the phone able to make a call if you need it. It does the weather band radio and AM/FM local radio. These are the ad-on items. The body wash I've not used before but at this price if I end up not being able to use it, it's not a great loss. The deodorant is less than in the store for the same size. I for 2 of each of those. I also for 1 100 pack of green friendly coffee filters. I know everyone tells me to get a metal one - well I don't like them - I think it changes the taste of the coffee and I hate cleaning them out. People say - just dump it, but it's not clean after that - so NO.

I'm short on money for the rest of the month as I'll only have $42 I c…

Jacob Barlow's Song

Jacob Barlow's Song David S Nicholson Dec, 03, 2019

SETTING YOUR CHANNEL ON YOUTUBE TO "NOT CHILD FRIENDLY"

Image
In your browser go to:
https://studio.youtube.com/

If using your phone or tablet set it to "desktop version".

Click "Settings".
Next click "Advanced Settings".

Click on No (middle option) to be set to not child friendly. Click on Yes (top option) to be set to child friendly. Third option you have to mark each video one at a time as child friendly or not. If you do not YouTube will decide for you. There is a possibility of getting a rather large fine and losing your channel if they think you are marketing to children and it's not child safe.

WHY I NO LONGER DO BDSM (COMEDY)

Image
Number one reason I don't do BDSM anymore is my health. Lets also face the fact the people I used to play with are in about the same boat.
So there would be the possibility of needing to call 911 for me and then I have to explain that the ligature marks on my wrists and ankles and the whip marks on my ass are consensual.
There is also the possibility of me being chained to a bed and the other guy grabbing his chest and hitting the floor. Then what the hell do I do? Chew the straps off for the next 27 hours and get to my phone and have to explain to the cops why the guy died yesterday and I am just calling now - oh and why the hell he is only wearing a leather dogs head mask?
Besides the bad pain is all I can deal with now, so the good pain would be too much pain. If that makes sense. It's like that "wafer thin mint" thing in the meaning of life you see... one slap and POOF.
Besides I get examined by a doctor at least once a month - do I need to explain my my ass has brui…

FACEBOOK JAIL? NOT THIS TIME

Image
Been hit by the bots so many times on Facebook that when this popped up I thought I was back in Facebook Jail. LOL. OMG. I would love to see everyone migrate over to MeWe and be done with it. Facebook is becoming a place that is very much not open speech or even humour friendly. The last time I was in FB jail was for a MEME I posted and no one thought it was bad but the bots called it "hate speech". Then again I said "us men can be dicks some times" and got hit for "hate speech". I lost the appeal on that one as well FFS. I said it about myself for the most part - but yes, acknowledging that your own people can suck at times is a crime against humanity.

ETERNALLY IN DEBT IT SEEMS

Image
So you want me to spend $1K in 2 months so that I might win $1K in points then? With all the people using their credit cards it's also going to me a slim chance in hell I'd get my money back. Then there is the problem of having a limit of $500. LOL. I also never want that to go up so I can't possibly become totally screwed with debt. I do generally spend about $400 a month on the card then pay it off the next month when I get paid. This does actually mean I'm in debt but not by much and I never get dinged for interest as It's paid off on time. I would actually love to come into about $500 so I could pay it off and still be ahead of the game. As it is I'm literally at $0 in the back after bills, rent and credit card most of the time. So if I could pay it off an be ahead I'd be able to stay ahead until the next disaster. That's what happened this time - About 6 or 7 months ago I got hit for a large amount of money I needed to spend (large to me). Then the…

HOW DO PEOPLE FALL FOR THIS STUFF?

Image
See I just doubt strongly that all the sudden Bestbuy changed their url to whatever the hell that is. j5s does not spell Bestbuy.
They just keep trying though, now don't they.
There has been a LOT of these money transfer crap things going around this last while as well. The sad thing is the same people keep falling for them over and over and losing money when they do.
Just so many people out there willing to screw over the next guy so they can have what they want. I never understood the criminal mind. I also never understood why people fall for this shit.
Then there is the share scams on Facebook and Twitter. Like and share this post for an equal share in the $30,000,000 winning lotto ticket. Right, think about it. The logistics of paying out money to thousands of people and well the stupidity of not wanting to keep at least half of it. Do you honestly think this is real?
I often wonder when people share this stuff do they also give out info they should not to try and get something for…

WEIGHT LOSS WEEK 47 (OOPS)

Image
Well my birthday seemed to be hell on the diet. Then again this entire year is a write off. I'm up 38 lbs this year. Sigh. It's been a big backslide.
Up 11.4 lbs, 24 weeks up, 21 down, 2 no change. This year +38 lbs, all time -108 lbs. This is week 47
Now I've been busy and not eating my normal food the last few days, so I may be up again this week. As well as some of you know, you can be good the next week and still be up. There is a delay sometimes in gaining or losing weight.

VIEW COUNT IS STRANGE ON BLOGGER

Image
This is the page views from my blog (this blog). I've had as much as 5,000+ views but that is rare.
What I find interesting is the number of views being in pairs like this. It's happened for years now. I'll be 50 on one and 50 on the next and so on. In the screen shot there is a prime example of this happening 3 times in a row.
Then after the magic number of 28 days there is typically a jump of at least double the views over night. After that the view count will trickle up like you would expect on a not so popular blog.
Your guess is as good as mine as to why this happens in the first place. I'm sure the jump is them trying to see if you are cheating the system when you put ads on (I obviously don't). But that strange thing for the first few days is just baffling.
I do NOT have a tracker on the blog anymore. I have not for some time. There is no way to track the counts unless you have code in the blog and I don't. No one can just type in the url some place and get …

3 FUNNY ONE SERIOUS MIMIBLOGS

Image
Scared me, I thought I was in Facebook jail again or something. I was in a dominant mood at the time I made this. Now I'm back to saying "yes Mommy" - although at the age of 53 it's getting harder to get an older FemDom that I trust won't drop dead after tying me up. I've got no idea what the hell these are. They are not going away or changing colour. I thought they where bruises then days later with no change I got no idea. I'm thinking blood cyst. I have one on my arm, it's been there for years. These might just be deeper. OK I'll click the link. I'm sure this is Best Buy, even though It's been 7 years since I ordered from them and it does not look like their URL. I'll get my credit card out just in case it asks for it.

MY DAY IN PHOTOS

Image
My apartment. I often sit on the chair with no pants on and it's plastic so I put a towel down so I don't end up sealed to the chair. Actually it's to suck up the sweat as this plastic chair makes my but sweat like crazy. You can just see Pusheen by the printer as well with her sunglasses on. Mom Pusheen on the fridge overlooking everything. A plant in the common aria of my building. I forget what they are called, but I like it. Our chairs are all pink and the sofa's are all blue to contrast. You can just see the pool table at the left of the image and the shuffleboard is behind me. There are also 3 tables with 4 chairs each to play cards on. These chairs are kind of stiff but you can sit in them for a long time and be comfortable. There are 2 just like this in the laundry room but they are a sandy brown colour. I often sit in them for up to an hour at a time listening to podcasts and waiting for my washing to be done. This might be TMI, but I've seen a good number of…

GENDER IDENTITY AND SOCIAL PRESSURE TO CHOOSE

OK this topic came up the other day and I was reminded it when a friend talked about choice VS social pressure. To be honest there is no accurate data sets for this topic and it's the best guess of someone who thinks it's the job to find trends. But it's an interesting topic for dialog. Please be respectful to others rights in your comments.
There has been several cases talked about where a child decided to be the opposite gender of what they where born as. They felt that is what they where and where allowed to present themselves as that gender. Later on (in some cases after puberty) they switched back to presenting as their biological gender.
There have also been cases where people as adults chose to transition then several years after having gender reassignment surgery, they ended up thinking they where their original gender and wanted to be changed back. There is an obvious problem to this happening.
This all being stated the person who gave me this topic suggested that th…

4 RANDOM PHOTOS

Image
IT's mustard, really it is. Actually it is. Just looks bad.  I've got not one clue what the heck this is and being it seems to have splashed from the back of the microwave to the front, I just don't know.  A Googly Eye and an individually wrapped mint. Muppet crime scene? And me the other day.

Satisfaction Based Economy

"Satisfaction based economy".
When you stop working for and using money. You then work only for the satisfaction of doing the best you can do and the betterment of society. Generally this leads to everyone having the same things as the system distributes what it thinks you need or desire. No one person or family has more than the others no matter how much or little responsibility they have. This would be the ultimate in theory. The logistics of it however is a bit out there. Basically only criminals would have more in this system. As well good luck motivating someone to work in a factory busing his back if he gets the same as a guy who makes coffee for a living.

MEDICAL ASSISTED DEATH, MY CHOICES MAY NOT BE YOUR CHOICES

Image
So in Canada we have medical assisted death. This means in certain circumstances you can choose to end your life with the aid of a doctor or nurse.
This has recently been expanded to dementia and alzheimers. I was on Facebook and a friend with a lot of fundamentalist Christian friends posted a link to a story about what it's like to loose someone to dementia.
Well I responded that we can choose to have our life terminated where I live and that would be immediately my choice. I've seen people be lost to this terrible suffering and how lacking in quality of life they are. In my case I'll just skip to the end thank you.
Well one flipped out of course being that "it's Gods will that we suffer terribly before we die" - OK something like that but with about 500 words.
I replied well it would be my choice and I'd choose it. Got a second person reply with a more passive aggressive response about how it's my choice but we all have to "answer to our choices in…

Montana's BBQ and Bar - Moose Jaw

Coffee $2.49 (4/5) Starter Caesar $2.99 (4/5) Firecracker Burger (With fries and gravy) $16.98 (5/5) Skillet Cookies $6.99 (5/5) Tax $3.24 Total: $32.69 ($25 gift card) Paid: $7.69
 The service was good and the waiter friendly. We got seated right away as it was not a peak time. The place is rather rustic and western looking and so is the dress of the staff. The feel was good. The music was not too loud, but loud enough I could not do a video or it would get a music strike.
The salad was actually massive for the price. I actually wonder what the regular one is like. It also tasted very good and the cheese on it was outstanding - not the stuff you normally get in a restaurant.
The burger was outstanding and some of the best fries I've ever had. For what it is, the burger was not at all hot (spicy) to me, but I'm sure to most people it would have been spicy. I'm just used to extreme spice. Kind of wish there was an option to have to extreme spicy, but there isn't. The taste was …
