Beware Of Zombies And Updates

I want to caution all you computer owners….on installing Windows 10 Creator. It was an update from Hell. At first –it seemed good—with new features–virtual reality….3rd printings. It wasn’t offered as a choice —which is very wrong—because this machine belongs to ME! It was just installed and took a long time. At first it worked….but then froze up my machine.
Nothing is wrong with my computer….but I got a black screen and a zombie machine. Way to go—force it on people. The machine wanted to do a disc fix but that’s their crap excuse for almost ruining my computer.
I was able to get it back by working on it. Nothing is wrong with my disc or computer. It is this stinking update. So I was able to go back to a previous Windows 10 version.
Go give this nonsense to other computer users and leave me alone.

When Is A Dollar Bill More Than A Ten Dollar Bill

I had a weird experience today. What day do I have that I don’t? I went to the gas station. I was paying for the gas before you pump it. I gave the clerk a ten dollar bill and several others. He looked at it (was korean) and said the ten doesn’t look right. He held it up to the light.
Well that bill was with some I had. I said–I will give you a twenty instead. I looked at the bill later and it had the all the markings of a genuine bill. But I checked the date on it and it is a 1934 Series A ten dollar bill.
So maybe this bill is special. It is in good condition. I had it with some money I saved from a special day.

New—Is Not Better……

All right. I take a long time to buy things.
I have needed a new mixer for the kitchen. The old one is a White Westinghouse. It works but sometimes hesitates. So yes –it is old.
So I went to the local Kmart—it seems like they had a special.
Yeah —right. There was a mixer that rests on a stand for $25 dollars –only comes in red.
Then there was this Hamilton Beach Hand Mixer 62692—comes with beaters and a whisk. The mixer then rests on a Snap On Case.
Boy—when you try to mix your batter—the beaters fall out. Won’t lock in. Then the cord is so short as you mix—it comes out of the wall. Okay—when done—if you last that long—place on top of flimsy storage case and hope it doesn’t fall over.
Guess I will be returning it. I had to make some cookies for
the upcoming art show that I will be in. What a definite hassle!

Singing In The Rain–Not

I can remember when a rainy day was fun.  As a child I had a matching  raincoat with umbrella.  It was so comforting to splash through the puddles in the blue raincoat with the roses.

Umbrellas were dependable.  Some were big like a man’s or adult sized one. Maybe some were heavy or large but they opened easily.

Then umbrellas got smaller—more compact.  Some had easy to close buttons.

Recently in the spring I was using my brown umbrella with the easy to open button. As I crossed the grocery store parking lot—I tried to close it. ” Ouch!!!” It took a big chunk of skin off my finger.  It was good the store had band aids–and something to stop the bleeding.

Then a few months ago–I picked up an umbrella that was new but belonged to a relative.  The darn thing snapped me in the face as I opened it.

Stop and check to see if that the umbrella is safe.   Before you use it.

Plenty of rainy days ahead.

Like Gene Kelly in that movie….you might want to sing in the rain.

For Me–I’ll Take Hamburger

I love animals–That’s just the way I am.  It is something you are born with. So–I don’t really like hunting.

Not wanting to get into a dispute with the people that do.  It could be a regional thing.  If you are doing it–I don’t want to hear about it, nor do I want to eat or hear about your venison burger or meat.

A dear friend a few days ago–sent me photos of a venison meal he was making and all I could do is say— honestly I felt like puking.

I like to observe the beauty of animals (ALIVE) –take photos of them–make videos–draw pictures—paint them–make sculpture.  Yes—of Live Ones.

So with that said—No to your outdoor nature meals—yes I know the early pioneers ate it—but it’s not for me.

Wild Dog– Dig The Owner

As we start another week.. I will share something I saw.
I was taking my walk down the road.
There was a lady walking with her poodle on a leash. The cute gray poodle seemed excitable. It stops what he is doing and gets fussy.
You know he barks as someone is going by.
His owner seemed nice and said her dog, Hunter is crazy.
I just said all the small dogs seemed to act this way.  They are excitable and want to show they aren’t so small.
But I noticed he took a nice dump up on someone’s lawn.
I guess he should feel better. What a surprise for
that homeowner to clean up.

Check Out For What?

Do you wonder about store check outs? There should be another name for it. To make a  long long story short. After going on another line in the local Kmart(first one held up by man who wanted reward points without a pin or card).
I had the things run up. The cashier said she set it as charge
card because everyone else was using it. Then she did
not know how to change it to cash. Then the manager came to help. He walks away—she rings it up and no paper—then she changes the paper—the machine screwed up the receipt and folded it with not printing right. She tried it gain and the result
was a half eaten receipt.


Good thing that came out of it—the cat got a nice piece of cat
furniture for under $10 dollars. Now if only they could
run a store that wasn’t so aggravating. I’ll take the phony store
that they used as an advertisement on television.
It looks like this…now if only the cat will use it.
