Bird Going In An Air Vent (Photos)

Image
 Been trying to get a photo of a bird going in this air vent for 4 years and this is the best I can do right now. It's taken on heavy zoom threw a dirty window, so it's not great quality. Maybe in the summer I can hang out in the parking lot with my camera, but not now in January. Here are the 3 photos.

Covered in Itchy, Can't Sleep (Slightly NSFW)

Image
 I have had trouble sleeping since I was 10, and I'm now 54. Most of my life it was just not being able to sleep. Now it's also pain from my fibromyalgia, or itching from it. There can be generalized pain up to a level 7; Neck pain and headache up to a level 9; Insane itchiness that also burns (why I'm up tonight at 3:24 am); Testicle pain up to a level 7 or 8; Extreme nausea; The need to go and explode into the toilet (explosive poops). The list does on. Also to freak me out I had turned off my phone and charged it. I held the button and the phone was not coming on, so I freaked out. I soon realized that I was pushing the volume up button in my brain fog and when I held the power button it came on. There is the other thing, brain fog. For me I know things but I literally don't know the words to use when speaking, or I just can't concentrate for more than 20 seconds. In any event FUCK fibromyalgia, it sucks. Also FUCK insomnia, it sucks. When you add them both into

Moose Jaw Winter Storm Jan 13/14 2021

Image
First freezing rain came and then blowing snow. We have very little accumulation of snow however. The winds on the other hand topped out at 110 kph (68 mph). As you see it tossed our recycling dumpster on it's side in the parking lot. Don't know if we are still on for coffee tomorrow (my coffee group), but I rather doubt we will be going.   Other than the winds this was not nearly as bad as some. In the winter of 1978 we got 5 feet of snow in 2 days. The snow drifts where up to second story windows. The police phoned every number in the city to see if they needed to be rescued. My brother and I went out a window to dig out the back door and make a path to the garage. My Dad had to go to work (he was a cop) on a snowmobile. The entire province was shut down for several days and some of it for over a week.  

Don't Believe What You Are Told Without Question

Image
Think before you believe things you are told. The internet is filled with lies. This MEME is a good example. Read the text, then look at the photo. There is an diving air tank and a hose to a respirator in her mouth. This is actually from a story on taking disabled people diving. Here is a link to one of the story. There are actually several web pages carrying the story and many photos of her. The wheelchair is modified by an artist so the woman can move around under water.

Pizza and a Caesar Cocktail for Dinner

Image
So ordered Domino's for food today as I could not cook my bean mix yesterday dew to the fact I was in too much pain from my Fibro. So I got this and fed on it all day. 2 slices left for a 1am movie snack. It has "Pizza Sauce, Extra Cheese, Pepperoni, Ham, Onions, Green Pepper, Mushrooms, Sausage, Beef Crumble, Black Olives". Normally I add in Jalapeno Peppers, but I skipped them today. They made me think my credit card was dead LOL. I tried to order yesterday for today and it declined my card. Turns out there is a bug in the webpage and it won't allow you to do it for any other day than the one it is now. So card is still good . I washed the dinner portion of the pizza down with 10 oz of this in a mug with 6 oz of vodka. It was a strong drink and I'm slightly tipsy after. I also tossed in about 10 drops of tabasco sauce, and I'm now out of it. Dill pickle vodka is the best for this, but the cheep ass stuff is what I had on hand.  

Hot Pepper Soup for Dinner

Image
This is frozen mixed veggies, picked hot peppers and onions, vegetable stock and a bit of tomato paste. would be good like that, but not very hot, so I nuked it with Scorpion Death Sauce. It was a heck of a load of salt, but dang it was tasty as heck. The peppers and onion pickles where from the local farmers market and delicious on their own. Thanks to my friend Susan for loving me enough to give me this as a gift. MMMM. BTW I went to high school with her. She is the friend I have know the longest that I'm still friends with.  

Broken USB C to USB Adapter and Exporting JWildfireMini Flames

Image
To be honest I'm not going I thought I got this last summer - NOPE. It was ordered Aug. 5, 2019. So... It's a "UGREEN USB C to USB Adapter Cable Type C 3.1 Male to USB 3.0 Female". I got it to be able to put stuff on a thumb drive then on the computer. I had no idea at the time Android will NOT work with a Windows formatted Jump Drive, and wants to format it to it's own file system. So that was out of the question. However it worked fine when I got it and I was able to format the thumb drive then put stuff on it. Well when I went to use it this time, it did NOT work for me. The USB symbol never showed up in the status bar and I never got the connected notification. I tried it on a fiends phone and the same thing - nothing. So it was a waste of $10 and now the video files on the jump drive are lost forever. Oh wait, I have the old kind and it worked fine on my old phone and I recovered the videos. But I then formatted the drive for Windows. I'll be using the cl

2 Gifts in Jars (Food)

Image
Hot and Sweet Pepper Jelly. Went nice on some crackers I had. To be honest the timing was interesting because I almost never have crackers. I don't buy them mostly . Hot Pepper & Onion Pickles. This and the jelly where a gift from a friend. These went into a soup with some veggies and a cube (last one) of veggie stock. I also hit it with some Scorpion Death Sauce. So... it was very spicy. Alone they are not that hot and just tasty as heck. Both from the farmers market in town.  

Number Patters on the Phone.

Image
Just interesting pattern of numbers. First one it's 11:11 am and it's 1°C. The second it's 3:33 pm and 3°C. I'm the kind to instantly notice this kind of thing. Some put it down to being a sign from a higher power or that an angel is close, but for me it's just cool. In any event, I got the wallpaper on the Zedge app. I use it for all my notification sounds and now and then a wallpaper. The Android one nags you to pay money to remove ads and tries to trick you into clicking ads but when you get use to it, it's OK.  

Out of Debt - Mostly

Image
Well the bills are paid off finally and ahead of the April deadline I gave myself. I seriously won't have any fun for the next 2 months, but they are paid off. Thanks to a lot of art sales that where in fact a form of donation, and some outright donations, the $800+ is now all paid off. I don't owe anyone anymore, my overdraft is paid and my outstanding bills I was behind on are paid. I'm very happy for this to happen to say the least. It did take over a year but I made it dang it. There is though, the fact I'll always be on the credit card unless something happens to fix that. I use the card to get what I need and pay bills so I get points with it. I then pay it off the next pay day. It's fine doing this and there is a bit of money left in the bank to play with after I pay off the card (fun money). I just need to win $60,000,000 on the lotto so I can help my friends out and get a nice house - but then again, I don't play the lotto, so it's not going to happ

40 Updates?

Image
Man had not used the tablet in a month and look at this... 40 updates. I don't really have much installed on the tablet even and dang with the updates. Most of them where native Samsung apps that I'll never use and/or have no access to. I use the tablet for my backup Facebook and my second Instagram. I never post on that Instagram and I see I've had many followers but not many stay - they follow then unfollow soon after. LOL. It's all the muscle men, gay couples and furies I follow on that one that I keep separate from my primary Insta. There are 3 games on there as well, but nothing complicated. I do have a video editor on there and I don't know why as I do that on my phone or the PC. I still have Nova Launcher as well but not on the phone - it stopped working on my phone and I'm seriously not paying $18 for a launcher like Apex. I also have all my books on the tablet. I've been NOT reading the last 3 months so I will have to get at it again. Last book I re

When Texts Get Held in the Server Too Long

Image
Thought this was an interesting bug. Sometimes the system holds onto a text for a while instead of sending it to you right away. Because it did that, the text that it was on the way came after the text that it was delivered. LOL. I once got a text from someone I know a day after he sent it. It's not common, but it happens. Then there is the times it seems someone is typing super fast when in reality it held 3 or 4 texts and sent them rapid fire to you. That's always fun to see as well.

25 Random Facts About Me

Image
My worst fibro flare hurt twice as much as when I broke my arm. By the time I was 10 I was using words I had to explain to my parents. I consume about 28 OZ of Siracha a month. I don't buy pickles because I will literally eat them all in 30 minutes. Any kind of pickles. Bouncy castles and ball pits slightly disturb me. I've used a cordless drill as a mixer. When I got my large Pusheen there was no way to get them in Canada. With exchange, foreign shipping and duty fees, it was almost $80. I got drunk in the bath tub one time to the point I almost had to call a friend to come help me out. I seriously hate kissing. When I see the word it's my brain first reads it as tits. I was 10 months old when I was adopted. I was running and climbing the fence the first day home. I found a 15 lb rose quartz crystal and did not know it was worth anything. It sat in my car for months then mom told me to get rid of it and I did. A week later I found out its value and went back to where I put

This is the nice hat my friend Jonathan R. Holton sent me for being a supporter of the film he is part of developing Potholes the Movie . You can buy the same hat to support the movie being made or other clothing from them. You can also buy the Potholes book on their page. There is also a nice Potholes pipe to blaze up with. You may also download the production kit on the site. Links to their social media on the bottom of the site. Also check out MindWave Studios Ltd. when Jonathan can hook you up with some nice graphics or a promo clip or even an animation. He's very talented and hard working.
