The segment was regarding the hold overs from the post Civil War fuckwits that used to run around in sheets scaring people. Yes, the Ku Klux Klan. (Kook Clucks Clams) These people, by virtue of lacking melanin due to their distant ancestors adapting to living in northern climes, seem to... Continue reading

I had been wearing a compression band only for the past few days. After yesterdays' exam and 'stress test' (of which results are promising), I'm wearing the clunky hinged knee brace. Knee is fekking sore, and feels a bit unstable. Very sure after a day or two, that will pass. Continue reading

I know this happened last year, but I have had a lot going on, so just kep letting is slide. I used to use HULU, the free version. I had no problem watching the ads or the ad breaks. But it seems that they have changed how they do things.... Continue reading

It seems the SYNVISC injection is doing it's job. Much less grinding pain when bending the knee, and less side to side movement. The patella is moving smoothly over the joint, too. Still tends to hyper extend but that is something that can be avoid by using a compression band... Continue reading

I gave them POOR rating on how they handled my problem, and the reasons why: No one bothered to read what I had sent. I TOLD you I had already followed the instructions on your website, but that the SEND THIS BOOK option was NO WHERE on my Android App.... Continue reading

I finally finished downloading all my images I had posted in the LJ galleries/scrapbook. I think it was fear of losing some of those images that kept me from switching to other blog to be the Main one, and the others just mirrors. Still not too thrilled how Dreamwidth archives... Continue reading

I have a very old Canon wide angle lens, a 17-35mm F/2.8. Although it worked great for older camera bodies (550D, 40D, 7D) but its performance falls short on the 5DmkIV and the 7DmkII. So, I have been testing diffferent lenses, taking a photo of the same thing, same settings..... Continue reading

Audible keeps 'fixing' something that was never broken. Over the past year, I have traded comments, and requesting help and asking why. Finally, I just sent this: April 19, 2017 FEEDBACK, and I don't think you're going to like it. Dear Audible, first you got rid of "Gift a Credit!"... Continue reading

Today was the first morning I didn't have to put the knee compresssion band on my right knee when I swung my legs out of bed. I was able to stand, and walk to the "TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN" room without holding the doorway for support. Also, my knee... Continue reading

6th time was the charm! Well, Windows Media Center is working on my Windows 8.1 Pro laptop. Currently scanning the laptops' harddrive for errors to see if that fixes the slow to start/login problem. Still no word as to whether or not I can get a Windows 8.1 Pro with... Continue reading

It seems my Windows 8.1 w/WMC issues have been punted up to 'escalated'. But what got me is right off the bat, their email to me; My name isn't Stephanie. From there on their email was obsequious and condescending all at the same time. I let em have it with... Continue reading

h.t. to Ironymaiden for the info to download all my photos from LiveJournal. It's a bit fiddly, but so familiar. I miss the command line keyboarding in DOS days. Continue reading

But I still don't know of there will be a way for me to download, en masse, all the photos I have uploaded to Livejournal. I have already switch to Dreamwidth as the 'primary' blog, with Livejournal being the mirror, rather than the other way around. Screw Trump's buddy and... Continue reading

I went to see Dr S as scheduled to see about my knee. It was still swollen, even with the anti-inflammatory. I told Dr S wanted to go with the SYNVISC asap. He told me it takes a week for it to arrived, and he was scheduled to be elsewhere... Continue reading

Admiral Cain and the Battlestar Pegasus.. very disturbing story arc. When she and the Pegasus first showed up, we all breathed a sigh of relief.. for a while. Then the shine started rubbing off. When one of her officers is killed while trying to gang rape a prisoner (Caprica Sharon... Continue reading

But will wait until Friday. After 6 hours with Microsoft support working on my laptop with little or no success, my problematic computer has been punted up to Tech Tier 2. More things will be tried, but I have sinking feeling that Alan is right, that it would take less... Continue reading

After hours online with MS Support, three different techs regarding doing a "repair install" on my Window 8.1 laptop that the 'free' upgrade to Windows 10 screwed up, and I managed to roll it back to 8.1, but had persistent problems, hardlocks, things not working, I got told TODAY that...

As much as I understand copyright, intellectual property etc etc, I should be able to play my audio books on whatever device I so choose, not just on 'approved devices'. I have a few programs that 'convinces' a certain format to play on a generic MP3 player. But there's always... Continue reading

Knee was kicking up a fuss yesterday. I tried to take it easy, not walk too fast, or do too many deep knee bending things, but none of that helped. Going to bed last night, it didn't matter what position I put my leg in, even the tried in true... Continue reading

It's been about a month since we almost lost Keito to diabetes, and with only minor changes in his daily life, he is back to normal. He has a feeding schedule to make sure his blood glucose levels don't go too high, or too low. 1st feed between 6 and... Continue reading
