Actual headline this morning. Sometimes you can’t make shit up as interesting as real life.
Been pretty busy around here taxiing SWMBO around and keeping her going. Got her off her duff and got her to clean her car out, take it to Les Schwab to get the slow leak fixed, and to the DMV to register it. The last tag on her car read 2019. Luckily they only charged her for one year.
She’s out at a Doc appointment and making a run to the pharmacy.
She’s able to go all day without hooking up to the O2 tanks. Still wears it for sleeping though for “just in case.”
Had “Date Day” yesterday and went to our favorite Manchurian BBQ place in Bremerton only to find it replaced with a Chinese place. Bummer! Was “ok” but nothing to write home about.
Been listening to a net that sounds like it’s in Japan on 14.235 (if I remember right). Everyone is speaking Japanese so …
Still backing up my NAS drives to a couple of external 5TB drives I have “laying around” not doing anything. Have a RSHTECH USB3.0 HDD Docking Station and it keeps dropping out. But grsync doesn’t notice until it hits the end of it’s copy list.
Oh, Joy. My 1099R is available on MyPay. How much y’all want to bet they make me change my password cause I haven’t logged in since last year? Oh, wait. They switched to that 2a log in thingie.
Pi-Hole seems to be working pretty good for blocking ads, but, now it seems I can’t comment on a lot of articles on FoxNews. Hmmm… Sometimes works if I reload the page …
Apparently, Me not wanting to pay off some else’s student loan is promoting violence; according to Rep. Pressley. So I think I’ll just keep my money and hope someone kicks someone else’s ass for even suggesting student debt cancellation. The way i look at it is: if you were an adult (18 years of age in our society) and freely made an agreement to pay back a LOAN for schooling, then you need to get off your lazy ass and pay that money back.
Demanding canceling student loans is like me going to buy a car, signing the contract, then demanding someone else pay it off. Not going to work!
Guess I can’t donate to the Salvation Army this year either because I just can’t repent for being white, semi-affluent, and not realizing any racist things I may have done in the past. So I’ll just keep my money, thank you.
I’m thinking that I should show up at the county offices and claim forcing me to pay taxes on my house is completely and totally racist AND ageist. Indentured servitude. i am a slave to the county clerk under threat of incarceration if I don’t comply. You know: like Federal taxes.
Oh, and charging me a “fee” to use my cash card is double dipping. But I do like the way they label it a “convenience fee.” Makes it so much more enjoyable to pay it. BTW, who is it a convenience for? Me, cause I don’t have to carry cash? Or the store, cause they don’t have to handle cash? Otherwise everything is taken care of electronically.
The more news comes out of Florida, the more I’m tempted to move there: A Florida sheriff praised a homeowner for standing his ground and shooting an attempted home invader on Wednesday. “The homeowner did exactly what he should have,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd told WFLA-TV after a man in Lakeland, Florida shot an intruder in his home.
But you can still shit in the streets if you so desire: San Francisco Mayor London Breed on Friday declared a state of emergency in the city’s Tenderloin neighborhood, an area that sits near City Hall and that officials have long said is rampant with drugs and crime in response to overdose deaths.
If it counts for Moderna also, maybe I should be glad I caught a breakthrough case: A small study from the Oregon Health and Science University School of Medicine showed that breakthrough Covid infections in people who had the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines may provide massive immunity. How big? Against the original SARS-CoV-2 strain, blood serum from breakthrough cases was 950% more potent. And against the Delta variant, such serum was 1021% more potent.
Anywho. Probably should post this since I forgot (again) to post it last night. Windy.com says it’s raining like crazy out so I’d better check. Still prefer snow over rain.
