The Scam Is As Old As Mankind

The cozenage was intricately planned and carried out, and the victim fell for it hook, line and sinker, leaving him a ruined and mentally ravaged man without hope of reparation from the offender or from the government.... (fictional example) In this day and age, the scam has gone rampant. As long as... Sign in to see full entry.

Give and Take

The week+ of high heat and humidity here has finally broken and what a blessing that is. Also today is the last Pre-Season games for the Kansas City Chiefs and things are up and running with a win and a loss. Looking forward to P.D. and Phil arriving at noon for the beginning of this game and then... Sign in to see full entry.

Checking In

The Big Subject in Kansas City where I live is definitely "The Heat/Humidity Combo" and all that it entails. So far I have been very comfortable and staying inside. As long as the power holds I've got it made. If something happens to the power, of course, I will have no way to inform you of that. I... Sign in to see full entry.

To Sync A Fitbit With My Dongle

I wish I really knew what to do with my laptop and how to get my money's worth in its use. I get "loster" and more helpless every time I try to use it instead of getting more adept in its use. One day I'll be flying high and having fun and the next I have to call P.D. to tell him, "I've lost my... Sign in to see full entry.

Energy Analyzer, Monitor, Take Control...

Sure! They make it sound so simple as round and round we go trying to make sense of it. Ours in Missouri is called Evergy and it took forever and a day to figure out what I am doing and what they meant for us to do. Of course they are hoping that I will just leave it up to them and pay what they... Sign in to see full entry.

Family Storm Trooper

A little over a week ago, a really big old tree broke and fell over on Son P.D.'s "project house". That's not the house that they live in. It is an old house that he bought to re-do and add to for to sell. He has always done this since he first had to quit his job and take care of Phil since Phil... Sign in to see full entry.

Morning Is Here...I Think

The time is right for morning, but the outside night lights are still turned on, there is no blue sky or sunshine, no birdies singing their songs. I see no people coming and going, only dark clouds, rain beating down, gloom and doom feeling about the day. Sister sent me a note about terrible weather... Sign in to see full entry.

A Cloud of Gnats

Do you remember Corbin_Dallas? He once commented to me with a photo of a cloud of gnats. It was on a religious subject. It reminded me of the time I was jogging around the lake (yes I could still jog when I moved here). I was breathing heavily with my mouth open when I ran smack dab into a cloud of...

The Promise

It's late...very late... or rather, I guess it is very early. It is well past midnight and I'm still up. Been reading a David Baldacci murder mystery. I finally turned off the reading lamp and sat for a moment looking at the red, blue, green and yellow lights flickering through the tiny holes on the... Sign in to see full entry.

Who Is That Average Person?

An interesting fact that I ran across this week is that the average person speaks about 9,000,000 words a year and that 5,000,000 of them are one of only four words: I, me, my and mine. I guess that means I spend more than half of my life thinking and talking about myself? Since I read that the... Sign in to see full entry.
