Dear Bootlegger

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 stations on them, and you tell me “Original discs, used but in great condition”, you have NO call to get all snarky and pissy when I send…

Welcome to Paradox “The Girl Who Was Plugged In”

Welcome to Paradox “The Girl Who Was Plugged In”

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 notices is celebrity placements (current screen star toting new refreshing drink, or wearing latest fashions)

A despondent young woman has something that is missing from an executives ‘placements’. Emotion, longing, humanity. She meets one of the…

Grrrr

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 front already.

After checking our records

After checking our records

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 these 10 days, do Synergy electricity usage was below average. Normal Average is 34kwh per day). Switch on was at…

Welcome to Paradox “Options”

Welcome to Paradox “Options”

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 treatment. The outcome of her experiment isn’t quite what she expected, but at the same time opens her eyes…

Hatches Battened Down

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 over again)

As I have this quirk of typically sleeping through, or getting drowsy during them. (yawn) and this…

Today is the first day

Today is the first day

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 I did something even more important; I listened. I let him pour it all out to me, no judgment and only offered advise and my opinion when I was asked…

I envy my cousin his lack of tonsils

I envy my cousin his lack of tonsils

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 tube. It’s especially troublesome right about 3:30 am, when the pain medication wears off.

Fever, pain, and lack of…
