Saw Mr F. and it seems I have no other option but a total left knee replacement. Didn't I do this before? (check tag) Yup, on the right knee, almost 5 years ago. Not really looking forward to going through all of that again. My weight is an issue (well,... Continue reading

or just decided roaming around at night was a good idea... I would like to thank you for Trance's "I WANT TO KILL YOU!" screams and yowl in the middle of the night, as she followed your cat from office window, to the front bay windows, until it left our... Continue reading

Trump isn't/wasn't called "Don the Con" for no reason. He sold you a bill of goods, and you bought it. You're not the only person he has screwed over. The election wasn't stolen, Mike Pence's role in the counting of the Electoral votes was purely ceremonial. Ivermectin is for parasites... Continue reading

A lot today. I can't keep from involuntarily crying out, or making noise behind my clamped shut lips. I don't know what's changed since yesterday, or from the past months, but today is the first time I have taken pain meds. Part of me is relieved that pain relief is... Continue reading

I both love/hate how I have 7 days to pause updates. But sometimes I don't want the flipping updates. For good reason. The most current update screwed up all my setting on MailWasher. I started it up, and it was back to the first time run default settings. Font size,... Continue reading

I have been on Ozempic for almost 6 weeks. Turns out I am a 'textbook example' of insulin resistance. With the exception of slight nausea when I followed the protocol of increasing dose to .50 from .25mg, I have had no other reactions. Dr N does want blood tests to... Continue reading

I have been using/wearing a Samsung Gear2 smart watch. It worked great, only needing charging every three to four days, and the version of Samsung health could measure pulse, blood oxygen and a few other things. Along comes update on phone. Now Gear2 doesn't work, not because of hardware, but... Continue reading

Today is the 4th week I stabbed myself. With a pre-load injection of Ozempic. Now, I haven't changed my diet, or exercise routine. And I have lost a little over 3kgs (close to 7lbs) already. Huzzah for something that battles insulin resistance for non-diabetics! It's gonna be fun the next... Continue reading

Without errors. Currently on Win 7, have my Win 10 in external cloning bay, and am currently cloning my up-to-date- Windows 10 system by cloning the drive, rather than doing one of those nonsensical 'system images' that Microsoft seems to think are so wonderful. Their BEST system back up was... Continue reading

I have been trying to watch Curiosity Stream for the past week. I keep getting either the dreaded 403 error, or "Sorry, there was trouble with the playback" Then 2nd message is a "Well, no shit, Sherlock" message, but I took it on board, and submitted yet another cry for... Continue reading

Alan told me that Wing didn't go to bed until 2 a.m. as he was up working into the wee hours. That threw Loki's schedule off. If Wing was up, that meant it was time for Loki's cuddle, as he is a creature of habit. Continue reading

Loki has gotten this habit of waking me up in the middle of the night with a "pet me, cuddle me, shift your pillows so I can snuggle up with at the head of the bed." I sleep for shit as it is. How do I get him back to... Continue reading

I have used many different noise reduction programs, starting way back when NoiseNinja was all the rage. Noise reduction software has improved immensely. Here are the ones I have used. Define, by NIK and Google, and finally DxO: The results are good , but I have found it would either... Continue reading

Referring to the depression and self-loathing. After having my session with counselor, AND the appointment and discussion with Dr N regarding my not being able to lose weight, and the solution, I was feeling optimistic, even happy. The around comes Sunday lunch with MiL. I didn't eat much of my... Continue reading

After consulting with a doctor who knows me, knows my history, even down to my eating and exercise habits, after a blood test to see if I was diabetic (I'm not. BGLs are perfect), I have finally been diagnosed with "Acute metabolic disorder". The new chemical in my life is... Continue reading

Really... thank you. For not informing millions of Smart Watch users that you were deliberately preventing Gear 2, and other models of watches/fitness trackers, from connecting to your shiny new phone. Not because they can't connect, but because you blocked it. AND the fun part is the only way people... Continue reading

Now I get to muddle through the weekdays. That's not to say it's going to be all bad. I have some optimism. There are so many idiotic anti-vaxxers that keep holding super spreader event. The kittens have grown so much. Drax is almost Loki's shoulder height. That's what Wing get... Continue reading

I hope they all rot in hell. They politicized vaccinations, wearing a mask, social distancing... everything that could have, WOULD have brought Covid to a halt. When I hear dumb-assed rednecks threatening to bring loaded guns into school if their child has to wear a mask.. Every time I hear... Continue reading

Last month we had cool and cold weather. Then a day of warmish weather, then cold again. Now we have 39 to 41c (102 to 106f)days, and 26c (77f) nights. The wall our bed is against is hot to the touch. Guess it's a good thing I have to pile... Continue reading

Setting up the MyGov, the MyGovID, and SafeWA apps on my phone. After 8 different codes, and multiple attempts to import my COVID vax proof... ARGH! I would fully understand, that although the information is important, why some people would just say "Screw it!". Continue reading

On November 28, 2020, I posted a rather lengthy blog entry under the title "Canon, you have some 'splainin' to do!" regarding how their new EOS R5 and its' overheating problem when recording video. I even posted link to a video where someone, with a helluva lot more money than... Continue reading

I saw Dr N this morning. I showed him the prescriptions I have aka The Chemical Experiment That Is My Life. Had discussion regarding my not really improving even though I am busting my ass trying to get my left leg useful. Dr N looked at my M.R.I. and said... Continue reading

Just finished watching "The Tender Bar", a movie based on the memoir J.R. Moehringer. It was a slice of life from my own childhood into young adulthood (alas, unlike J.R. even though I was accepted into UConn, I couldn't get the financial aspect of it. Even to the point of... Continue reading

No more eyestrain, too. Also, no more either tilting my head or closing one eye when editing photographs, or watching a movie with one eye closed. The 'kittens' can no longer really be called kittens. Drax is pretty close to the size of Loki already. Groo-Bear is still a bit... Continue reading
