My day thinking of many things

My day today

Here I am again watching TV NCIS New Orleans. I have two TVs hooked together and I can watch on one and internet Blogs on the other. It is a different live style than I am use to doing. Before it was either or. It does make for a better story when I need research, I can research it and take from it as I complete a story. Most of the time I tell my stories from my head. I am well-trained on typing from a copy and do the spelling correctly. Back in the day when I use to be live, online and had to type fast and exactly what the copy said at 100-120 wpm you will soon get good at it. I am out of practice now but I can still hold my own if I need to.

This copy that I am making at present, I am using a format on Adobe IC. I have been working with for a while and I am now getting the hang of it and I want to maybe use it to write a more complete Publishing. I am not sure if I will go that route but it is a consideration that I am considering in the future. I need to try to do something of value with my efforts if I can.

I really do not have a story to tell but I can make some copy of many little stories and maybe work it all into a story of its own. The old Readers Digest type of publication. More of about this at some later publication.

 

A future decision

I am giving some thought about stopping going to the Waffle House every day because of the expense in going each day. If I eat then a tip is expected, it cost gas to go from where I live to the Waffle House. One has to consider the round trip sequence. All of this is a seven-day event. I have been going down to be with some friends of the elderly age group and we would cut up and talk about the old days and how things have changed. We are all having health issues which have caused us to go our own ways. I have two Waffle Houses up within a half mile from my house. I do not like them but some of the people working there I do enjoy the company of when there and we have a conversation.

The Wal-Mart is across the street from where I live and in the parking lot areas there is a Burger King, pizza stores, Chinese, and chicken places. Down the main road you can find places like McDonald’s, Kristal’s, KFC, Arby’s, and many other restaurants. There is plenty to do around my home and again there is an expense of which you want to find at home if you prepare for yourself. I was talking today to a few people who either work at the Waffle House that I go to or is one of the old-timers that I see each day. I told the waitress that she and a couple of others are one reason that I am not already gone. I told my friend that I was thinking of leaving the Waffle House customer group. He seems to have the same idea, however, he also likes to get close to the waitresses (not in an aggressive way). I think he is wrong doing that but I want to tell him because he reacts crazy sometime. He likes to make noise, and all of that kind of “fun”.

My decision is  coming shortly and I will either add it here or in the future.

 

Insurance

Insurance is another area that I have issues with. Of course there is nothing that I can do about the cost of insurance. I have two cars and full coverage on both. The cost goes up based on the use for the year before. It hurts when I have accidents to my credit and, therefore, I get the raise as if I had done something wrong. I also have rentals insurance which is not very costly but I am required to have it where I live because I am in an apartment. My medical insurance is three-fold. I have a policy from where I retired, one from a place where my disabilities are recorded, and the other is the Medicare of which I paid in to a plan all my life. My expense is co-pays. Thant can get expensive fast. My hold point about them is if you do not use them then you are wasting money but should you ever need them you will be covered and it is the best thing that you can have. The rules have changed so much that you never know what they will cover or pay on the issue that you face. It can be a very big headache or mental situation. The fact is and there is no way out of but we find that we have to have insurance regardless of the cost that we might have.

 

Camera
a complete kit

I ordered a DSLR camera kit yesterday and it should be here tomorrow. I am looking forward to it because with it I can go out and take come photos of great content for some of my blogs and published items. I will tell a lot more about it all tomorrow once it comes. I will even show it on film. I have been working with video on the computer using my 920 cameras, xSplits and OBS systems to record and sent the videos out to Facebook and YouTube. I have sent a recording over my blog once just to see how it would work out. This DSLR is able to produce 1080P at 30fps. That is HD capability. I can do wonders with it once I get it working like I want to. I am so happy and so interested in doing what I am doing. I have learned so much about writing since I started to the blogs, not that I am good at it but I do enjoy it very much.

Updates are coming.

 

A follow-on

I am about to get serious with something here soon. I want to think about it for a while before I start the transcript. I want to try to script an article as realistic as I can make it. I am not a gamer so I have to rely on other criteria to assemble and disseminate my content.

 

Corndog

I had a corndog as a pet once, today I placed it in the microwave and I heard it make some noises toward me for doing that.  Gee, I hope that we have no hard feelings, I only let it run for 48 secs.  I took it out and added a little cold ketchup over it then after carefully moving to another room with it, I took a bite.  The corndog never made another sound but it sure was good.  I only ate the one, not real hungry right now anyway.

Let me see, it is a hot dog weenie with a stick stuck in it, covered with cornbread. ummm What an invention.  But they are good for a hurry snack.  So until the next corndog barks I am moving on to something different to make racket about.

Updated my internet

Today I was talking to Charter Spectrum, and I ask her about if I had the fastest service she said no that they have much faster.  I asked how much, she gave me a price, I asked if their clown had to come out to install, she went and talked to someone and came back and told me that she had fired it to me, that if might take a while to download.  No clown needed.  Yea, I thought.  So sometime between now and tomorrow I should have 300 megs or whatever they call it.  She said my router would take at least 400, so I am good there.

So not James is on the move, his figures are speeding up and he is crying all the way to the bank, yes it cost a little more.lol.  Nah, just a thing to keep my mind from turning into mush.  At least one thing I tried my camera and xSplits out and it seems more happier, it also got another upgrade.  Maybe that is why if felt so good.  I tried UBS and it was working great also.  No upgrade for it yet.

Adobe got one upgrade yesterday, otherwise those programs are still a pain to get into and operate.  I know people will disagree with me on that but I watch the lessons and they do one thing then another and never tell you what they are doing.  I am old and slow so please understand I am not a dummmy just slow and old.

I like little stories about me, even if I have to write them.  I can make them funny or sad because I have lived that life for most of it.  If and when you read it feel free to laugh or feel sad, I will never know unless you tell me.  I actually like me a little, so that is where I stand for now.

Thank you for flabbergasting with me.

Country comments

I am doing a few comments on the countries that show up and like or whatever on some of my works.  They show respect and I feel that if I comment on their countries then I have paid respect to them.  I am not a politician, thank GOD of mine, so I have nothing to lose or gain being nice to the people of each countries whom are tied up in bad situations sometimes.  My feelings and comment and I am sticking to it.

Billy Bob and Sally Mae pt2

The couple had a fun and interesting visit to Sweetwater now on to other interesting areas.  They continue travel down I-20 into Midland, TX.   Midland is where the President George W. Bush’s childhood home is located.  The Petroleum Museum is also located there as it the Bank of America Building.  Many more places to see and visit.  The couple decides to take a half day and visit as much as they could, eat some good food and move on towards Pecos.

Pecos, TX is growing or remodeling.  It is believed that the first rodeo started in Pecos.  A lot of history in this little growing town.  Ranching, oil and gas is the conversation found there when talking to old timers.  Pecos has ten hotels which Billy Bob and Sally Mae might stay.  I also know that the food is good there also.

From Pecos the couple drives westward and I-20 will run into I-10 as they follow westward on I-10 toward California they will begin to run into hills, Texas Mountains, these hills are not bad but interesting.  The couple is only a few miles north of the Mexico border.  a ways out and nothing to really see, is a town called Van Horn, TX.  It is a nice little cozy place to visit.  A lot of border patrol are stationed there.  A few miles from here is where the couple will see their first check point to the south of the highway.  A 24 hour check point.  They decide to spend the night in Van Horn as it has been a long day.

The next morning they are up and ready for some travel.  The next major stop is El Paso, TX.  They are able to cross the border there if they want but they have to be careful.  Juärez can be fun, costly, and dangerous.  Now El Paso has a lot of interesting things to do, visit and I could take a few days to do it all.  After they leave El Paso they will enter into New Mexico.  I am not sure what they will do just yet, so I will let them sleep for a while and talk about it.
