NEXT MONTHS EXPENSES (TRYING TO GET OUT DEBT)

Image
Well more carry over on the credit card till next month - but won't be interest as the amount I need to pay will be paid before it's time for interest to start being applied. If I don't get much next month and don't spend much on myself for fun, I will most likely be out of the hole in a few months. I want to get back to the point where I can pay it all off before the end of the month on the same check, not the next months check like I'm doing now. As well would be nice to be able to leave a bit in the bank just in case I need a cab ride - until I get it all taken care off, that won't happen. When my contract with Shaw Cable runs out, I'll be dropping cable for good and switching to Sasktel for internet - then it will be $79 a month instead of $157 a month ($78 saving - so half the price). My phone plan is staying the same - I want the unlimited Data so I can use the phone anywhere and if I switch to a plan with no unlimited I will be billed long distance i…

YOUTUBE COMMENTS HELD FOR REVIEW BOX IS BROKEN

Image
You will have to click the image to enlarge. Don't know how well that will work on a phone, but a tablet might be fine. Anyways... What the actual hell is abusive about any of these comments. The held for review box is where the bot puts them if it thinks they are "abusive" or could be "abusive". The best thing is it waited till the next day to toss them in there after I'd replied to every last one of them. The hell? It seems to do it in clusters. There will be nothing in the box for a week to 2, then POOF several comments get tossed in there form a recent video. Every last time there was not one thing wrong with them. Well OK literally 1 comment was a bit on the snide side, but it was meant as a joke and did not cross a line that any rational person would think is abuse. So I'm left wondering how many people have been punted off of YouTube for stuff they never did. I do remember one time getting a strike for "copyright music". Well the video …

WEIGHT LOSS YEAR 5 WEEK 2

Image
Well this week went better than I expected. I was expecting about 3 lbs.
-5.4 lbs to a weight of 386.4. A loss this term of 6.4 lbs so far and an all time loss of 111.6 lbs.

WEIGHT LOSS YEAR 5 WEEK 1

Image
Lost 1 LB on the first week of the year. Puts me at 391.8lbs (177.7kg). Loss for the term 1.0lbs. All time loss 105.2lbs.
Last year was an atrocity with me going up rather a LOT. I'll be trying my best this year to not do so bad. I tell you the first year was so easy and I was not tempted - but now it's a struggle to say the least. 
The fact that I'm too disabled to walk much and I can't do any other form of working out makes it a lot harder.

CURRIED BEAN AND VEGGIES WITH A NICE CUP OF COFFEE

Image
This is some leftover veggies and beans heated up with a packet of Chocolate Curry spice. I tossed the packet so I can't tell you the brand - I should have taken a photo of it. It was actually quite good. The spice was just right and not overstated. The chocolate set it all off quite well. The garlic in it complemented nicely as well. I rather enjoyed it.
A nice cup of Kick Ass Coffee by Kicking Horse to wash it down was a great ending to the meal.
Now I'm back to the standard beans and veggies in stewed tomatoes for the rest of the month - can't afford any other stuff to munch on. 
MMM Coffee.

CAMINO IN MY COFFEE

Image
I don't do milk so instead of making this like it's supposed to be made, I tossed some in my Coffee. It was actually GREAT in the coffee. Just a hint of chili and bit of a minty taste. It all complements the chocolate flavor quite well. Was given this as a gift, and I rather enjoy it.

SHAW SPEED TEST FREAKED ME OUT

Image
Had a bit of a HUH moment when I tested my speed the other day. I had it coming out at just over 100Mbps and it's supposed to be 300. So I contacted them on Twitter and they send a service guy. He tests it and it's 300. Well then he tells me that their OWN speed test does not work and I should use a different one. Sure enough, I fire it up and my phone hits exactly on 300. that upload speed though... Sigh. We seem to have an issue in all of Canada where they conspire to give us pathetic upload speeds. As well, I don't know who's IP is showing on this, but it's not mine - can't figure out why not.

BIRDS IN SUITS DREAM

Image
I had a dream that I was on a lawn in a park some place. There where these pigeons there and they where eating $1 coins. They had these little pin striped suits on and where just oblivious to all else but the coins. This cat dressed up as death came and took 2 of the birds. The others did not even notice.

END OF THE WORLD DREAM

Image
I had a dream that I was on a ship in the middle of the sea. The sea was red and smelled like death. There where these strange black birds flying in a circle around me. They would call out the names of all the people that I know that passes away.

After some time the sea turned white and the sky filled with angles. Then a trumpet started to sound and a man appeared beside me and told me the world was over now.

WELL I FAILED ON THE HEALTHY EATING AND MONEY ISSUES

Image
14" Hand Tossed

Brooklyn Pepperoni, Sausage, Bacon, Jalapeno Peppers, Pizza Sauce, Cheese. (BTW that is sriracha in top of the pizza).

This is what I got stupid and ordered. I've literally got $42 left on the credit card I can use and still pay it off when I get paid, so there can NOT be any more of this this month. Sigh.

However I still have not had any booze, or sugar to speak of other than a small can of Ginger Ale to settle a sick tummy to allow me to do the dang laundry in peace. I don't normally do much sugar so that's not the issue. The issue is the pizza thing, or burgers. I just need to motivate myself and keep on track no matter how much it SUCKS.

The booze thing I can take or leave. I do enjoy a good whisky or 3 from time to time, but I can leave it alone as well. I do like the feeling of being drunk as well, but most times I do bother to drink it's just a couple of drams. So it's not a big issue.

I need to try very hard next month and stick to the plan.…

HOW TO BOOT FROM YOUR RESTORE USB DEVICE

To make the PC boot from the USB restore device you need to insert it in the USB port then boot the system. At this point you may see something like "press F2 to enter setup" it may also be Del or Return. Normally it is the F2 key. You may have to use another device to google what the key is for your particular computer.
You now have the setup menu on and at the bottom there will be Enter Setup. Use the arrow keys to select that and press return.
Next slide over to "boot". Use the arrow keys to select "Removable Device" then use the "+" key to move it to the top of the list.
At this point you want to use whatever it says at the bottom to save settings (normally it's F9). Then select "yes" and press return. Then the system will continue to boot from the USB device. Remember is you have an external drive hooked up to unplug it. As well after installing windows again you will want to follow the steps again to set "Hard Drive" t…

So Your New PC Won't Boot

So your new PC won't boot for some reason. Well if you have an external drive on it, this could be this issue and most likely is. The boot sequence on a PC is normally set to boot from a USB device first during the installation of Windows 10. You are going to want to set that to C drive.

Now turn off the power wait a moment then turn it back on. You should see something about press "F2" or "Return" or "Del" to enter setup. If you don't see that, use another device to see what key you need to press. In any event, you want to rapidly press the key (normally its F2) to enter the boot setup.

When the boot setup opens there will be a list of devices and Enter Setup. Use the arrow keys and then return to enter setup.

Use the arrow keys to move over to "boot". Use the arrow keys to move to "Removable Devices" and press the "-" key to move it to the the bottom of the list. Then use the arrow keys to select Hard Drive and the &qu…

WINDOWS 10 RECOVERY USB

Image
Search for "Create a recovery drive" and then click it. Admin password may be required.When the tool opens, make sure "Back up system files to the recovery drive" is selected, then select Next.Click USB drive (thumb drive), and then click Next.Click Create.The process will take a rather long time, there are a vast amount of files to copy.You will need a 16GB USB thumb drive. More than likely it will be less than 6GB used but the recommend a 16GB device.
P.S. You will want to look up how to enter bios on boot on your computer then copy down the instructions then in bios go to the boot option and follow the instructions for your computer model on how to set the boot option to the USB first. After installing windows you might want to shut it off as the firs boot option if you have an external drive - also you will want to unplug any external drives before trying to boot from the USB thumb drive.
