If I have asked you over and over if the DVDs you're selling are the real deal, because I have been burned by people selling crappy pirated off the TV or old VHS tapes, then burned to DVDs and calling them 'box sets', even with network logos from different TV... Continue reading

This was the very first episode of 'Welcome to Paradox' I ever saw. Blatant advertising is illegal, and the only way to get your goods and services noticed is celebrity placements (current screen star toting new refreshing drink, or wearing latest fashions) A despondent young woman has something that is...

Still a pet peeve: when after months of trying to figure out a software issue on your own, you email support, outline everything you have tried to do, and the response you get is nothing more than a copy/paste from the %#$$@ online FAQ that you've read from back to... Continue reading

We had the digital power meter installed 10 days before the installation of the solar panels. The meter reading, upon the switch on of the solar inverter, was at 283, meaning the average usage was 28kwH a day (must point out, we had been enjoying warmer than usual temperatures for...

I really like this episode. If you could actually swap genders, to see how the other half lives. Genetic/DNA surgery doesn't just give the semblance of the opposite sex, but you actually become the opposite sex. A woman catches her husband cheating on her. She decides to undergo the the...

Have some stormy weather, with very strong gusty winds heading our way. Wind's already here. Have tucked things into the shed, other things up against the gate and house. Filled watering can to weigh it down. Made sure the lime tree was off the wheeled dolly (can't have that fall... Continue reading

That I have spoken to my eldest son, Paul, in quite some time. It wasn't for the best of reasons, but I don't care. He is going through a rough patch, (not of his making) and family is family. I've missed him, and I told him as much. But then... Continue reading

Because here I am, over 50, with a bout of tonsillitis combined with ear infection. My biggest problem with it right now is the painful swallowing. It's not just the tonsil/throat, it's the stabbing pain in the ear when I do from the pressure of the tonsil on the Eustachian... Continue reading

Yesterday, three QuickFlix DVDs arrived, but it had been raining, and the mailman didn't insert them fully into the mailbox. They got soaked. I had tried to carefully remove the mailing envelopes, but they dissolved into mush. The DVDs were ok, but the mailers were gone. I logged onto QuickFlix... Continue reading

For me, after someone complained about being fiscally careful, of doing just that (like sewing waistbands back on underwear is just so much fun.. and that's just one example of penny pinching) what that other someone has, in the past two weeks, racked up $229 in speeding fines? Anyone... anyone? Continue reading

You have never seen me do exactly that. Ziggy has habit of licking a spot on a foot until it's lost the fur (stress thing like a human biting fingernails). She has learned that I will make her stop whether she wants to or not. Next thing; get her to... Continue reading

But not so glad I need it as often as I do. It seems that most of the times I use it, is to repair piss poorly put stitched together items. Just got through finishing off the end of a zipper on a laundry bag, and stitching the zipper and... Continue reading

I had hoped when I heard this, that it was a hoax. But it's not. Actor, comedian, genius.... the black dog got him. The world world has lost one of its brightest lights, and we are lessened for it. My condolences to all who loved him, his family, friends, the... Continue reading

Because I never know when to stop. For the past few weeks, I have asked, repeatedly for assistance from the male bipeds. First it was to clear some of the weeds that had grown back, and then just to remove twigs and branches so I could level everything with the... Continue reading

Wing and I head into Fremantle just about every Friday. Him, for his photo project (one photo a week of the same restaurant to see how things change over the seasons), and me for some night time street photography. I don't feel so bad about something now, because it's not... Continue reading

I called PetPlan about the increase in pet policy prices. Turns out it's not because she older. It's because there have been people who have certain breeds of cat that are known to have specific to breed health problems that wouldn't be covered who are claiming their cats are 'domestic...

Adobe has come out with Creative Cloud 2014. Of course, they didn't warn anyone that Creative Cloud 2013 (for want of better label0 plugins might not, or more likely, will not work with their latest and greatest. People who had CS6E/CS6 had the same problem. I worked at it until... Continue reading

And is no longer hiding, it's time for her to learn the hierarchy. She has been stalking and attempting to bully Ziggy. Ziggy is the 'diva' here, and Trance has to learn it. Whenever Trance stalks or harasses Ziggy, she gets a squirt of water from a spray bottle. All... Continue reading

Once again, I am up early because of feline behavior. I heard this low, not quite silent growling, and felt something slowly climb over me, and settle down where one pillow overhung another. The growl got a bit louder. I reached out, and felt a small muscular body, grabbed it... Continue reading

I have Feliway diffusers, but with the wide open floor plan, power outlet locations leave much to be desired. Visited eBay seller, and got some Feliway spray. Two bottles to use in the heavy cat traffic areas. Continue reading

Last night, I decided to forego the "Leonardo Da Vinci" special on SBS because I was just that tired. For this wisdom, I was woken up by not so melodious sound of Ziggy and Trance in a throw down at 2am. I thought those pheromone calming collars were supposed to... Continue reading

Woke up with nasty one this morning. 1: Drank some water, waited a goodly while.. no change. 2: Did some deep breathing/relaxation exercises... no change 3: Went outside for fresh air and a bit of a meander... no change. 4: Self massage of neck, jaw (sternocleidomastoid muscle), temples and scalp.....

Trance is a bit sulky with me right now, as a few mornings ago, I walked up to her, and as she was being lovey, I put a collar with a few small bells on it around her neck. She went nuts. Acrocatics at its best. She's not 100% used... Continue reading

How many school kids, almost babies, need to be slaughtered before they stop taking money from a glorified gun club for political favors? Does it have to their own children and grand children before they wise up? How many towns in Texas have to be almost blown off a map... Continue reading
