PHOTO BLOG AKA I HAVE ALL THE TOILET PAPER

Image
This is a months worth of food and a great deal of toilet paper. It was on sale and normally when it's this good a price I get 2 packs even if I don't need it. I got dried beans this time and when I finish the canned ones in the pantry I'll be getting into the dried ones. Could not get the Tomatoes I normally get so I got much smaller cans and tomato sauce instead. I tried out the fancy expensive tomatoes and sauce in a batch of bean mix and it tasted quite good. However it's noticeably less actual food.  Top row is what I already had (include 8 rolls of paper towel). Bottom row is the ones I got on sale. This should literally last me to the end of the year and trust me I use a lot of toilet paper. It's amazing how the one store can keep it in and the rest of them can't - of wait, there was a limit of 2 packs... never mind.  No playing cards of pool or shuffleboard.  The common arias where people would congregate are now closed. Some still are not getting the ide…

WHO GETS SAVED AND WHO GETS LEFT TO DIE?

Image
Just read that in some provinces they have released the trigger point as to how much over capacity with Covid-19 cases, before they just allow the old and crippled like me to die to give life support to a younger person. I'm kind of sure most of you won't agree with me or may not one of you will but... I'm fully willing to be left to die if it comes to that and a young person needs support instead of me. I really do get how shitty this is and how terrible it is for those who will die and their families. However I fully understand it's all math - I work out to a 4 on a scale of 10 and if the other person is an 8 - they win. I would not deny a younger person with a life ahead of them the opportunity to live. When it comes to the fact, you literally can't save everyone - it's not logical to allow less able to contribute people to live. First come first serve may seem fair to people, but it's not logical. to be honest if asked, I'd sign a form telling them …

HOW TO MAKE MEMORIES NOT SHOW ON YOUR FACEBOOK TIMELINE

Image
~ On the left find "Memories" under "Explore".

~ Select "Preferences" in the top left tab.

~ Select date.

~ Set the start date to Jan 1, 1980 (or whatever) and the end date to the end of next year (won't let you set it farther).

~ You will have to go back once a year at this rate, but it will make the "Memories" go away.


GOT A DIFFERENT COFFEE THEN SAW MINE ON SALE - TOO LATE

Image
So I'm making coffee with some IPA beer. No it's just what it looks like when you fill it up and there is a skiff of coffee at the bottom.

I don't know what is happening here, but normally I'd be almost out of coffee by now. However I seem to have about a weeks worth left to go. I don't understand. I been having coffee more than normal as I been inside for a month. So got no idea how this is working.

I wanted to get my normal coffee for when I run out, but the store web page said they where out. So I went to Amazon and it was like "well we are out of stock but this seller has some" and it was $30 not $7 - so FUCK THAT. I then ordered something that was $12 a can. 1 can will last me a month. I got 2 just in case. Well then I look again just after I get my coffee in the mail and there it is in the store on sale for $7. See this is how life works. Sigh.

At least I got it. Some things are on back order for a month or more on Amazon right now because people are l…

GOT ENOUGH TOILET PAPER TO SERVICE THE APOCALYPSE

Image
Well I use a great deal of it, so NO it's not going to last that long - maybe 250 to 300 days though. DANG I got a good deal. I already had some but it was on sale big time and I could get 24 double rolls for less than half price. The limit was 2 so I got 2. Even with me pooping like 5 times a day I should last at least 250 days till I need more. I'm amazed that some places still don't have toilet paper. It all comes from the same place so I got not one clue why the hell other cites have a shortage and we don't. I know some stores are not limiting, so they get hit by the people who are STILL panic buying. Think of how much of a risk it is to go to the store like 25 times and get 25 car loads of crap you will never need, rather than spread it out and just get what you need when you need it. I'm also willing to bet not one of them wiped down all the cans and bags of pasta and packs of meat before they put them away. Other people touched that shit. Tell me why the liv…

COMMUNITY COMING TOGETHER WHILE STAYING APART - WE CAN DO THIS

Image
Penna's Welding has offered to go get things for those who can't do it themselves and are at high risk in this Pandemic situation. They and several other organizations are to be commended for this. It shows that not everyone is out to grab as much as they can with not one care about others. It does my heart good. Parking lot of the church across the street and on the corner. There is no one there today for worship. They are taking wisely persuasions. Some churches are live streaming services from the home of the pastor via the internet. This can keep the much needed sense of community and support that a church can bring. At the bottom is where church officials normally part (past the container) at a different church (behind my building). They too are wisely staying home. Across the street is the parking lot of a mini-mall that has been empty for days. People seem to finally be getting that this is a very dangerous situation.
Keep safe and only go out when you have to. I know it&#…

TO GET DELIVERY OR NOT

Image
This may well be the last pizza I get for a while. As others have stated, how contact free is "contact free delivery". See even if they have gloves on, they are breathing on it and 95% of them will not be changing them gloves for every delivery. There is a chance even with great precautions of taking the virus from one doorstep to the other. The person delivering of handling the package/food can be contagious and not know it yet. It's a risk to have anything delivered to say the least. But then again going out and getting food from the store is literally the same risk. You can't avoid it unless you already have 2 years supply of stuff.
Being that this is more than likely going to last 12 to 18 months, we have to get used to the idea that every time we go and get something or have it delivered there is a risk. Hell for me doing the laundry is a risk - I'll be touching machines others have touched and a hard surface with no sunlight on it can hold the virus for 2 or…

TIME TO CHANGE HOW I SHOP AND COOK

Image
The tomatoes I normally got where bigger than the ones I can get in bulk now - so I will have to live with slightly less tomato's per meal it seems from now on. The other thing is other than just tomato, I'll be putting in 1 can tomatoes and 1 can tomato sauce from now on - it will be less watery this way. The canned beans are now limited to 2 per person per day - well can't do a months worth of food with 2 cans and I can't afford to go to the store literally every day of my life to get food. So now I'll be using dried beans instead. The beans I can get in bulk in cans are very expensive. To keep the price under $100 (my normal budget) I'll be doing it as you see above.
Every 2 says I'll boil 2 cups of dried beans then let them soak for an hour. Then I'll drain them and toss them in the slow cooker with a can of Tomatoes, a can of Sauce and 2 cups of veggies. I don't mix it until it's cooked (2 hours), this way the veggies don't over cook and…

FINDING FOOD IN THE PANDEMIC IS NOT SO EASY

Image
Just like that after I canceled my order I can't add the stuff back in because there are limits to what you can buy. So my new order have different kinds of beans (no limit) and no tomatoes but pizza sauce (all I could find with no limit). The TP at least is still available and I'm getting 2 so I won't run out for many months. I can only get 2 large bags of corn as well. So I have to cut in half the amount of veggies I add to my bean mix. As well I will NOT have enough till the end of next month but a week or so before the end of next month. All this because people can't handle the slightest bit of pressure and did not care about anyone else at all. This is going to be as much as I normally pay for a months worth of stuff and not nearly as much stuff :( - Sigh. So this is going to be very expensive until this is over I see. When I get paid and the GST rebate comes in (the 3rd) I'll see how much extra they gave me as the feds said they would pay out a bit more to lo…

SAMSUNG A50 BUG AND SAFE MODE FREAKED ME OUT

Image
I have a Samsung A50. I love this phone although they use software to limit it's capabilities. The camera is capable of 4K video for example and they only let you record in 1080P. However that's not what this is about.
Twice in a week this thing has made me lost my shit on it. First off I'm visiting a person in a care home. The chairs ALL have arms and people my size this is a problem. So I did not notice that the chair arm was pushing the buttons on my phone as I moved my leg. Several seconds after I herd the phone ding, so I checked to see who is texting me. It was not a text, the phone had reset.
Well reset is not to be worried about, but when I unlocked it my default launcher was no longer running and most of the apps where grayed out and could not be used. So I freaked out. I thought my phone was freaking dead. It took a while to calm down and realize it was in safe mode and another reset would fix everything.
See I literally don't have the money to pay out the contr…

UNDERWEAR ORDER GONE WRONG (AMAZON)

Image
Well I ordered "Amazon Basics Briefs" and they never shipped. This was actually on the 5th of March when I did the screen cap. I canceled the order and normally after 12 hours or so they tell you that you can't cancel as it's being processed - it canceled instantly. So then I noticed that Fruit of the Loom had a 6 pack for less money and I ordered that. It was here in 2 days. They fit well, so I ordered another 6 pack of them. The total price of 12 pair of undies was about $12 more than the 5 pack of Amazon Basics Briefs. So it's for the best in the end.

SNOW ON THE 8th

Image
March 8th it snowed. I got up at just past 7 AM and saw this site. Not one track in the snow so far. Snow looks nice when it's not been touched. I however do not like snow for the fact it's a danger to me. I slipped one time and spent 8 months recovering from the fall. I don't need a repeat of that any time soon.
Best thing is, yesterday it was 8C and most of the snow melted. I want soon to go to the park. If I do I will take photos to share - photo blog post.
