8 MONTHS AND 4 DAYS AND THE HOLE IS STILL NOT FIXED

Image
From Nov. 12, 2020 to today (Jun. 16, 2021) there has been this hole cut in my wall in the kitchen. I don't think it's too much to think, if you are going to make a hole, you come back and fix it, yet here it is 8 months and 4 days later. What can I say, this is the joys of subsidized housing, not having things fixed in a timely manner. Speaking of the tank on my toilet is being held together with silicon calking - sigh. Yeah, it seems to be doing the job but dang, that is a bit Red Green I think (and 2 people get the reference). Over a year ago I told them the thing that makes the shower come one does not work 100%. This is no big deal for me however, as I can still shower just fine, only it is pumping out twice as much out of the tap than the shower, and wasting a lot of water. A fried has a relative in the building and the celling in that persons bathroom was damaged by a leak, and it was left open for a very long time as well. It is demoralizing to have to look at something

Tried Captain Morgan Black Spiced Rum.

Image
Not big into Rum but when it's hot I tend to like it more. This was just good. It's Captain Morgan Black Spiced Rum. Tasted like plumbs and apples and cinnamon, allspice, and black pepper to me. Also had a bit of mint taste to it - peppermint that is. If you do the eggnog thing, this would be good in it. It's 47.2% ABV, so it's got some kick. A couple glasses and I'm starting to feel it. 4 and I'm ready for a nap. To be honest I think I like Sailor Jerry  (46% ABV) better but some I know will like this way better than S.J. I thought it would go good with Coke, so I got some when I picked up my meds at the drug store, and I was right, it rocked with Coke. Might be even better with Pepsi. We made cookies with Sailor Jerry one time and I doubt this stuff would work for that, but a nice rum-coffee cake would do well. Anyway, I have about 1/4 of it left and will probably finish it on Friday. BTW this is way lighter in taste than Sailor Jerry.  

LOVE IN THE MAIL FROM AUSTRALIA

Image
The phone did not take very good shots it seems, but oh well. A new Moka pot was in my box of goodies a friend from Australia sent me. These biscuits tasted great with coffee. MMM Coffee. And more coffee. Drinking this one right now, it's really good. We have the same company here but for some reason it always tastes better when it's from the UK or in this case Australia.

Turn Off the Weather Icon in Windows 10 Taskbar

Image
As ALWAYS the latest Windows 10 update said "here is more crap you did not ask for and don't want". The latest was a weather icon on the task bar. This is actually the "News and Interests" app. To make it shut up and stop giving you information you don't really want when you power up your PC, right click the task bar, mouse over News and interests then click Turn off. I seriously with these thing would not be turned on by default. In fact I'd like to be able to literally remove them, but that's not going to happen, it's not in any of the program lists or the Windows features list, so can't make it go completely away.  

Starting Pride Month with Music

Image
It's pride month in most of the civilized world, so I'm listening to Manowar. Accept is next. I love music and am not in a mood for something light or new right now. So the oldies it is. In any event, happy pride and enjoy some music you love.  

Extra Food Order (All Veggie)

Image
Some of the extra stuff I ordered when I made my money oops. The sausage in this sausage chili is a vegan sausage (Italian Spice). There is also a jar of hot salsa, a can of pasta sauce (with fetta), corn, red kidney beans, a packet of taco seasoning mix. I cut up the sausage and left it on the bottom and layered the rest, and put it on high for 2.5 hours. Lastly, mixed it well and put it in containers and then eat some. Got some bonus chips, I did not order these and they do more than one order at a time, so I got some other persons chips. I tried to text the number they service texts updates from, but there was no reply. By the time I email them or get them on Twitter, the other people will either have forgotten it, or got a credit already. So I have chips. I also got salad mix and a whack of cucumbers. Had 2 beer left in the fridge from many weeks ago (about a month ago), so I am drinking them for lunch. I had a salad for breakfast, so it's all good LOL. I also watched 4 movies

Ordered Stuff on Amazon and Made a Money Oops

Image
Was not going to be out of my hole for a wile yet, but was given enough money to do that. Thus I ordered some clothing. There are 3 pair of sweat pants coming and 1 3 pack of undies. I have never had this kind of undies, but if they fit well, I'll order 2 more packs next month. Might order another sweat pants as well. I also ordered the printer I need. I messed up thinking I had money though. I ordered a second set of groceries (mostly veggies) at the price of about $50. Then I realized that none of my subscriptions had come in yet and I needed $53 for them. So now I have like $53 less than I planned. I'll have about $35 for the rest of the month only, but I don't need anything other than what I ordered or paid for already. So all I need is coffee money and this covers that and more. It's $2.50 a coffee outing as I never order food. So 4 x $2.50 is $10.00, so it's covered. I got rid of an addon to prime that I'm not using (Shudder) - I tend to disable it for 6 m

Windows 10 Updating is a Bother

Image
Was wondering why the hard drive light was on for 15 solid minutes and the PC using heavy resources. Well turns out it was downloading the latest missive update to Windows 10. I like how it will say in the update window "future update" and have a "download and install" link. Well, you already downloaded it now didn't you? It literally does not tell you it's updating and with a cheap PC with only 8GB of ram and an i5 it kind of sucks resources like crazy to use the update function. It leaves you thinking "WTF is it doing" every time. Seriously, at least give a notification that you are updating. As well slow it down a little so I can at least do something with the PC without having it slow way the hell down. But that will not happen.
