Just because nobody complains doesn’t mean all parachutes are perfect.

 

OK, for those of you who are wondering why I didn’t publish last week, it was because I was in the hospital, recovering from a stroke. My landlord found me, unresponsive, o the floor of the utility room. What a shocker. I knew I was in bad shape, but I didn’t realize just how bad. So, I guess it’s time for a lifestyle change. Plus I have been instructed to take daily medications for the rest of my life. WOW!

As if my life wasn’t in bad enough shape, something happened with my laptop, and it could no longer find the D: drive. I tried everything I could think of, but couldn’t figure out what went wrong. I don’t have enough money left to take it to a repair shop, so I resigned myself to the fact that I had lost all the data on that drive forever. I guess I still have a bit of good luck left, though, because, a few days later, I got a notification that a system update for Windows 10 was available. I let the update run, but part way through it seemed to stop, and there was zero activity on the computer. After several minutes with nothing happening, I pushed the power button. The bootup process began, then, after a few minutes a message saying that the update could not continue appeared, and it said that the previous actions had to be undone. Once this undo completed, and the laptop booted back up, everything seemed normal. Then, a few days later, I noticed that the D: drive was accessible again. Thank heaven for small favors! Now, if the good luck can just continue, and I can get some contributions to my fundraiser. Wadda ya say, people? I would also appreciate any comments as to why people aren’t donating, as well as suggestions on what to do to kickstart donations. Leave a comment, please.

More bullcrap from Apple. What good is a credit card that can’t touch leather, denim, or other cards? Where, exactly, do you keep it? A special case sold only by Apple, no doubt.

If my children were asked to sell raffle tickets for semi automatic weapons we most certainly would have a conversation with the school.

There’s an environmental disaster going on right now in the Amazon, and it is largely unreported. There’s so much smoke from wildfires in the Amazon rainforest that São Paulo plunged into darkness on Monday afternoon (Aug. 19), with day turning into night.

Do not piss off a platypus. Or at least avoid letting it bite you. I can’t remember but I may have posted this before.

Dogs prefer reggae to other types of music, apparently.

HA! Pretty sure if I saw this at random I would think nothing of it. But, then, I am not Islamophobic, either.

 

 

 

When you wonder how this person managed to get the job.

 

 

 

 

Late for something, are we?
