But "Doctors Without Borders" keeps calling me and asking me to increase the amount of the monthly donation. I have told them over and over, that no, not happening, but they keep calling and wheedling. So, what I did was create an "Auto Reject" caller list and have put them... Continue reading

After treating my chili tree, successfully it seems, for woolly aphids, here are the first two ripe chilies from it. Don't let the small size of these fool you, one of these can boost a pot of chili from 2 burner to 3 burner. Continue reading

I've been reading, and shaking my head at, commentary from people making excuses for the stunts the Republicans have been pulling. I don't mean the constant obstructionism they have been practicing since almost before President Elect Obama was sworn in, the 50+ APPEAL OBAMACARE even if it screws over millions... Continue reading

A thank you to Stevo for his efforts... Last year, a friend borrowed my "Welcome to Paradox SciFi Original Series" box set, and then never returned it. When I asked about it, I was told it had never been borrowed. So, I went in search of it online, and it... Continue reading

Gawd it's hot outside. I got my almost daily walk in and was wondering why I felt like I was sweltering. 'Official' temperature 31c? My bet, a bit warmer here. Came in, got a drink, went back outside to tend to the gardening. In this case, watering plants in back... Continue reading

Such sad, but not unexpected news. Thank you for letting me be one of your 'unofficial grandchildren'. RIP Grandpa. You truly "Lived Long and Prospered". Leonard Nimoy, the Beloved “Mr. Spock” in Star Trek, Dies at 83. Continue reading

But people see no problem with asking me to bring and use several thousands of dollars worth of photo equipment (cameras, lenses, lighting, cables, backdrops, stands, etc etc) and to do a job that would at the least cost $1500 for just the day, and to do it for nothing,... Continue reading

After week of feeding me copied and pasted bull$hit from the FAQs, that even though I had quoted their FAQs in my support ticket, I had enough of their non-support. Here is my reply to yet another inane copy/paste from FAQ with another link to the full version to download.... Continue reading

I posted something on a program makers "Facebook Page", asking a question. I get a reply the next day, to please go to their main site and submit a support ticket. I dutifully point and click on over, copy and paste the exact question on their "Submit Support Ticket", and... Continue reading

When the pain medication kicks it, and you get that first ebbing of pain, it flows back but not as strong, and it ebbs again, comes back even weaker, you know it's been beaten back this time. So there, Migraine wannabe, you are going away, and I didn't throw up. Continue reading

But needed to be done. Got two bags of potting mix as I have two chili plants that need to be topped up. And one of the Geraldton Wax seedlings I rescued from a hole in a brick has more than tripled in size, so needed a new home. I... Continue reading

Loki, just because I went to bed early did NOT mean to get me up early. Yes, pre-dawn birdsong is nice, but I prefer to sleep a bit later. No matter, you're out, back in, back out, fed and I am sipping my morning brew. I do, however, see yet... Continue reading

For now. I went into my office area, and could hear the steady growling of an pissed off cat. Ziggy. Loki was about 3ft away from her, and she was letting out a steady stream of growling (and for such a tiny cat she sounds very fierce. had deep guttural... Continue reading

And I keep what can be updated, updated. There are certain software/hardware that never made it to the next generation of Windows, even with "compatibility mode". There is also the lack of full screen DOS window with Post WinXP. And all hype aside, Windows XP is a good stable OS.... Continue reading

I submitted a support ticket to Cyberlink regarding one of their programs having a problem. PhotoDirector 4 I could login to "DirectorZone" for templates and upload to Facebook, Flickr etc etc. Newest version, v5, suddenly I keep getting error. Just for giggles, I clicked on "Forgot password" and PhotoDirector sent... Continue reading

Canon Australia has opened February's "Canon Light" entries a little over a week ago, subject "Street Photography". I only have a single candidate so far because of firebugs! I have asthma. There are fucking arsonists lighting fires in the bush areas. The air tastes of smoke and ash, and I... Continue reading

I ordered a Breville Coffee and Spice Grinder Model CG2B. I ordered in November last year. Now I don't mind it arriving so late because of holidays. What I do mind is that I was sent the Breville Coffee and Spice Grinder Model BCG200. I specifically asked for and ordered... Continue reading

IINET said it was my network adapter, I said it was the router. Well, we are both right. We got a new router from IINET, as our old one packed it in. Now, I never had a problem connecting to it, or maintaining internet connection with the old one. This... Continue reading

I read an article from a computer magazine. It says that cloud storage is the death knell for local hard drive storage units. Uhh, no. Cloud storage has shown not only is it vulnerable to to catastrophic data loss, but it has also show itself to be hackable. Case in... Continue reading

I keep thinking about this past year. All the ups and downs, meeting new friends, keeping in touch with not so new friends. The trips, the vacations, the photo gear. And when I think about all of that, it pales in comparison to the one thing that happened later in... Continue reading
