Apparently not noticing one’s furnace isn’t working can lead to health issues. So, two days ago I realized that the furnace in the house where I live was not working. This was because the temperature had been slowly dropping for some time, and I realized that turning up the temperature (assuming drafts and such) did… Continue reading Exposed! And a Target?
I’m not perfect, neither are you: “Suck it up buttercup!” Okay, I have hard time saying things like that, even though there are times I am a bit of an ass. As the little quote says, “I’m not perfect”. The thing of which I have to remind myself is that neither is anyone else. We… Continue reading Person Imperfect
Headlines which are catchy (and possibly ‘cheesy’) belong on a personal blog like this one that is personal revelations from the author(s), political opinion, creativity, and (trying to be) artistic prose and poetry, not on a news website, portal, or other source of what should be trusted journalism. Yes, it’s fun to come up with… Continue reading ‘Catchy / Cheesy’ and Opinionated Headlines Here — Not a News Site
I may sometimes seem like I “keep on ticking” no matter what happens, or am constantly ‘making noise’ about things. In truth though this is as much acting that way in order to try to make it reality as it a reflection of myself. Unfortunately I am not really so indefatigable, and in fact lately… Continue reading Not So Indefatigable
It not “mirror, mirror on the wall” but the “sound of silence”. Have I asked too many difficult questions, are people simply busy, or what?
Many, even in my own country of Canada, might think that homemade pancakes every morning would be a dream come true, but after two and half weeks, I’m glad I have more variety again! It’s not just because I was making the pancakes for myself, alone during a pandemic, or that for the last few… Continue reading Poor Man’s Pancakes
Since I’m working on planning my future and I happened to find out that the local college is having a virtual open house, I decided to take their ‘Career Assessment’, which turns out to be a fairly standard personality test (which wasn’t really all that surprising). It came back with, as usual for the tool… Continue reading Personal(ity) Minority
Today is Donald Trump’s last day as the president of the United States, and the first day of their incoming president who at least speaks of unifying the country. The US, for better or worse, is a major influence on the world, and most especially on my own country, Canada (sharing a rather long border,… Continue reading Today the World Will Be a Little Better — We Need That!
No it’s not the ‘big red button’! T -2 means out reality is going to get a bit of reset toward sanity, normalcy, and cooperation. My goal is to also use this opportunity for a ‘personal reset’. I mentioned that I had wrapped up all my projects. Well, I’ve also started the process of rebuilding… Continue reading T -2 And Personal Reset
I must have fallen asleep between starting and finishing my Covid Cut Day 21 post since I posted on Jan 12 that it was T -9 to Biden’s inauguration and then end of Trump’s presidency. I’ve now corrected that to T -8. Today is five days after that error, which means there are three days… Continue reading Fixing a Post and It’s T -3
It’s been a busy five days since I last posted, but first: after three weeks my covid desperation self-cut is looking like it could use a bit of work!
How much damage can Trump do in the thirteen days that remain in his term? Barring a 25th amendment removal or an impeachment the current President of the United States (Donald Trump) has ‘only’ thirteen days left as president. Supposedly this is to be used for an orderly transition to the incoming president (Joe Biden),… Continue reading A Question That Frightens
Sadly this is not a post about a Blues music project during the Covid-19 pandemic. It’s just me whining about the fact that one way or another I’ve wrapped up all my tech projects and am feeling something I am not used to (and don’t like); boredom. It’s not that there is nothing that needs… Continue reading Covid Project Blues
Apparently when one has a site that has a custom contact form one don’t attract the same level of spam messages as if one has standard blog software contact forms and comments. I suspect this is due to the automated software that looks for contact forms and comments is more likely to recognize those submission… Continue reading Rotten Eggs and SPAM
In a previous post I opined that we need to remember forgotten frontline workers like grocery clerks, on the assumption that health care, including LTC (long term care) workers were not forgotten. I was apparently too optimistic based on an letter to the editor on MidlandToday.ca. Our seniors and those who care for them are… Continue reading Frontline Still Forgotten
We need mandatory third party security and privacy audits to matter as much to the directors and shareholders as financial audits. Shareholders wanting to be protected from fraud and misrepresentation by companies understating the risks and overstating potential rewards for the investors is what had lead to governments requiring public corporations to have third party financial audits.
