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.

AN DRUG ADDICT, AN ANGRY PERSON, AND A LIAR

Image
I'm reminded of a thing that happened a while back. There was 2 people directly involved and 1 person on the fringe. I don't talk to any of them anymore and in the case of the first 2 it's of good reason. I've mentioned it before, but this is my blog and I'll freaking repeat myself if I want.
There was this one day I ended up being given some pain meds from a doctor in the ER. I'd literally never seen this doctor before in my life to that point in time. I was out of my mind in pain at the time I was in there. I had not filled the prescription as it was too late to do so when I got home. The next day was a holiday and the drug store I went to was closed. So I had to wait another day. And like always, by that time I did not actually need the drugs, the pain was at a level I could ignore it (I live with pain every day and you get used to ignoring it).
Well I posted on Facebook about it on the 2nd day (day after the trip to the ER). This woman (a "close friend&q…

GET RID OF WINDOWS EXPERIENCE SCREEN ON STARTUP

Image
Open settings. Select system, then Notifications & Actions. Uncheck the box that says "Show me the Windows welcome experience after updates and occasionally when I sign in to highlight what's new and suggested.
Then this waste of time annoyance will be gone.
Might want to uncheck "Get tips, tricks, and suggestions as you use windows" as well. There is also a toggle at the bottom of the page called "Suggested" to turn off if you like.

COMPUTER DAMAGE COVERAGE PAID OUT AND WHAT I DID WITH THE MONEY

Image
So just looked at the claim for the computer and it says 217 USD. They deposited in 217 CDN. So when the check gets scanned, it should adjust to USD and I get $70 more (about). However both the teller any myself are confused as to it being CDN or USD in the first place on the check. The address for the company is in Texas and it came from there, but on the check it has the name of a bank in Ontario and the company name has Canada stamped on it. So I got not one clue. I have lost the original email from Amazon and literally can't remember if it was USD or CDN that I paid for it. I just know in the information I saved it said $217. I'm happy with $217 CDN but if it is USD then that $70 more would be welcome to say the least.

I've used most of it that was deposited to pay off the credit card (mostly) and order a couple things I need - that being Underwear and a new Mop Head. I also got in a very large bottle of whisky (a 60oz). That was like $62 and probably unwise, but it wil…

SUBSCRIPTION FEED ON YOUTUBE AND SOME FAVORITE CHANNELS

Image
I've noticed that YouTube had finally fixed the subscriptions feed. I like to "remove" videos after I watch them so the feed is only unwatched videos. For a very long time now there has been an issue where after a week or 2 the videos I removed would show back up in my feed. I'm glad to see it's kind of fixed now. But what this shows up at the end of the feed instead of it saying "no more videos" or just ending, I don't know. But at least all the watched videos I'd removed are GONE now.
I said a while ago in a Tag Video that I don't watch anyone over 50K subscribers. I just realized that a couple of the music channels I follow are at almost a million now. So I guess I was wrong. As for Vloggers I think Steves Family Vlogs is the biggest channel I watch at a bit over 7K subscribers, but I could be wrong.
As for other channels I really enjoy there is mehquig (been following him since I first got on YouTube over 12 years ago). Parmesana - never m…
