Most Extreme Elimination Challenge (MXC) in on Amazon Video now. I love that show.
Sorry about your losses Nat. To me, they look like great folks. Cheers man.My grandfather in this photo passed about fourteen years ago, and my grandmother two, and my mother in 2013. I am not a religious person but I hope in some way they are doing this type of thing all together again . Today would have been my mother's 68th birthday .
Once upon a time, before we were married, my wife and I were stuck in an airport for 14 hours around the holidays. They had a 45 minute loop of Christmas music playing over the PA system. That was the worst....And KidL found a Christmas radio station. We have ongoing negotiations on how long we listen each day. I can't take that stuff every day for the next month or so. Nope, sorry, honey, daddy has limits to his patience.
I hate most renters - they do weird **** like this, and they have no skin in the game since they don't own the house. Fence in this case, unfortunately, sounds like the answer. Plus maybe a call to the landlord...Crazy renter lady update...
she went full ballistic after reading my simple letter saying please stop trimming our landscaping, here is copy of my survey, please stop removing the stake flags, and here is the mark on the sidewalk with a picture. scared the ** out of my autistic kids by pounding on the door like a crack addict. Left a nutty response written on my letter and tape it to my door. Started yelling at my wife saying how un-neighborly and i should have come over to talk in person (wtf covid). Lied about having her own survey done and how she would never pound on our door (our kids scared, they watched her). ugh. On top of that, whole reason I'm getting a fence is my kids refuse to the use the backyard anymore since they never leash their little aggressive dogs and ** all over my hard (two hoa no nos, which i've complained about previously)
Woof. Steve, that sucks. I hope you guys are okay/negative. Keep us posted - definitely too many things going on for you guys to get sick with this isht.I mean it’s tough for everyone financially, but health should be a greater concern. Don’t complain, just adapt.
Mrs. 2oh had to get a covid test yesterday. She had possible contact w/ 2 people at work w/ covid. One person wasn’t wearing a mask and in my wife’s office. Four days later Mrs. 2oh was showing symptoms. The text results will only take 3 days. I feel sick too, the same symptoms. I am waiting on her results before I get tested. And I am perfectly fine taking unpaid time off to make sure I don’t give it to my coworkers. It’s really hurts financially but I don’t want to spread this virus.
The thing that really sucks about my wife is she had asked if she could work virtually because of the babies. The high school she works at is virtual. A combo of covid reasons and bussing issues for a very large school district. Anyway there are only teachers, guidance counselors, administrators, and therapists in the building. Her boss denied it. So here she is possibly infected w/ infants. I am a high risk too w/ afib and asthma. I’m very worried for the whole family
The system sucks, and there's seemingly no willingness to really make the changes that need to be made. Damn polticos.It's money and technicalities.
Both treatments are approved for "standard" colitis variants and Crohn's, so if I had ulcerative colitis I'd be done and approved almost a month ago and starting treatment next week.
But no, I have checkpoint inhibitor colitis, which is relatively new and doesn't have "officially approved" treatment plans. There are the studies of treatment options, and there is data showing that it responds well to the usual biologic treatments, but some of those studies show that the cheap treatments reduce the effectiveness of other methods if applied first.
So the insurance company is calling all of this experimental and basically saying "go cheap or get denied."
I ****ing hate that someone's profits have an equal say with my ability to actually do things. I ****ing hate this system.
Fixed.Happy Thanksgiving everybody.
Last load of big items is unloaded and the rental truck is returned. Now to throw it all out.
Twice? Damn I didn't even know you'd had it once.
- Having COVID the second time is no better than the first.
- Moving while sick is no fun.
- Not being able to taste food on Thanksgiving is just as bad as 1 and 2 combined.
- Don't die out there.
They should start a marathon....TIL Japan is only 26.5mi (43km) from Russia!
Cape Sōya to Cape Crillon.
As an iPhone user I rarely reset it, but it starts acting a bit odd when a new update comes out but it never really crashes or anything.How many of you dorks do regular resets on your phones? On a regular basis, or just when needed?
After watching Mrs. DonL fight with her old phone last night, I spent most of the morning backing up and resetting my phone. It previously updated from Android 10 to 11, and there was some lagging, some flakiness, and I'm sure a lot of bloat and unneeded crap built up over the last almost year. Fresh 11 install, got to ditch unused apps, and I kinda forgot how nice a fresh phone runs, and the battery life seems better, too.
You flew over NK so you wouldn't have a layover in OH? I'd probably flip a coin myself, depending on the layover, but I don't blame you.I once famously paid an extra $300 for a direct flight just to avoid a layover in Ohio.
Abacus? Damn, I never thought about that. I wonder if that's something that KidL could mess around with and get the hang of it. As it is, I showed her how to use a calculator the other day, and you could see her eyes widen when she saw that she could have help. Her ASD teacher's been talking about adding that as a learning or adaptive aid to help her get her head around math. If it helps, I'd be all for it. Abacus, though. That's an awesome idea.Last assessment showed her IQ is fine, she just needs to get the train on the tracks. Like I showed her 3 ways to add tens and ones including abacus methods and once it caught she knocked problems out in seconds. Just infuriates me trying to get there.
Reset, not restart. Wipe it out, clean slate. I know a couple of people that do that every six months or so, or annually, just to start from scratch. Others, only when something goes tango uniform. The update from 10 to 11, from what I'd read, runs better when you reset it with the new OS. Some apps are said to be clunkier or laggy when you load an update on top of the old OS. I dunno, but I did find a few things that were cranky. I did find a couple things that Android 11 does that bugs me that I haven't found a workaround for yet.
Drive safe! Hopefully the return trip is as easy as the trip there.It's been a fun trip but I'm looking forward to driving home on Sunday. I have been having a difficult time breathing up here and adjusting to a different area takes a long time. My nose does not like oil fired furnaces.
Stupid sinus problems.
Wait, what? for what?
Left wing trolls annoy me as much as right wing trolls.
