Last night I found 1 bug, disposed of it, did what I needed in the bathroom, then immediately went back to bed.

I drove people around, they got their stuff done, the car got fueled up to 3/4 of a tank, I had lunch, a friend brought my 2 UPS pkgs(7lbs worth) in and put away the adj steering column, plus I got an estimate for installing said column with my current steering wheel, estimate is $360 which I'll have on December 30th.

I ordered some supplies from Amazon, like 36lbs of kitty food, some clothes, DVD-R discs($5.47 for 15, data-video type, I need to burn a Windows10 iso that came from MS to DVD-R, DVD-R was less than DVD+R), 2 DVD movies(StarWars SOLO+Phineas&Ferb), 2qts ATF fluid like before, a windows10 book(3rd edition).

The Back to the Future Trilogy on DVD is late according to Amazon, sigh.

If I turn my knee the wrong way my leg wants to collapse, I've taken all of my pills for today, so all I can do is try and stay off of it as much as I can.

Rocks and devils grass here, the park whacked it after mites and at least 1 tick made me throw out a broken sofa out of my living room.

The park said they'd spray the devils grass and they lied, I still don't have a chair or loveseat in my living room, powered would be nice,
but powered or not they're about 8 months away. My bedroom is coming along as the insect invasion there made me move stuff away
from the walls so I could spray where the carpet and wall board meet since that is the only place they can now hide at since a few years
ago I'd sealed up all the cracks and crevices and all the outlets and light switches have stick on foam insulation behind the faceplates
with child proof plug protectors(below) in the unused parts of every electrical outlet. It is a Good thing I did all that work years ago...

Last week the local Walmart erected the 1st Xmas tree at their store.

And I saw a VW ID4 EV at the Barstow CA Walmart Super Center.

$40,000 for an ID4 min for the moment, at least until the base model starts being made in TN,
the base model ID4 is supposed to be $35,000 in 2022.

This could replace my nearly 25yr old car one day.

The burden I had since I was a teenager, knowing my sister was not ok and why she died @ 53yrs,
made me really sad, I loved my sister, before she died she descended into madness and I could do
nothing and a certain drug to replace one the body normally makes had to be substituted and
we were all(my dad, my brother & me) told it would one day be rejected by her brain, I felt helpless...
Supposedly it was a mental breakdown that caused this to start ticking like time bomb, my sister
even though she'd had a hysterectomy thought she was pregnant for the last few years of her life.

I had Terminix come here and look at my bed and the trap between the box spring and the mattress, I have bed bugs.

$3000 to get rid of them with 160F heat treatment and Terminix is a monopoly out here.

Other was are $1800 w/a $900 down payment w/a credit score of 600 and undisclosed payment amounts,
or for even more money than the 160F treatment of the whole house is the tent treatment..
$1800 means they come out and spray repeatedly.

Someone coming here would have had to introduce them.

I'm still going to try and get a friend to cover my box spring and then spray at where the carpet
and walls meet with Ortho Home Defense Max Bed Bug spray.

I mean what else can I do currently?

Besides inspect the bed everytime I'm about to use the bed and flush the bugs when I find them.

being in a home with no windows that could be used to look up or down the road and being disabled someone did something.

Today I put 5 bags of crushed 2L bottles in my car's backseat, picked up my GF, got a small loan, bought some food for her and our animals and went home.

I got 2 hugs and 2 kisses, plus I got to put my right arm around her waist. The bottles netted me just above $32. And I lost my hair comb.

Here we go again.

TLPTPHW #308
The following are the Rules:
-------------

1. Winner of the last thread starts the new one with a post of these rules.
2. Chooses a future event which triggers the winner, e.g. post number, date-time, and records it privately somehow (yellow sticky, etc.)
3. Everyone has fun posting until the target event is reached.
4. When the target is reached, old winner posts declaration of new winner and also PMs them.
5. Shortly after this a Mod will lock the recently won thread. (My preference is for the winner to ask the mods to lock the old thread after the new one is started.)
6. No double posts. Violators buy drinks or a meal for the house in Rocky's.
7. Additional rule retained from the last round - No posts that APPEAR to be blank - these will be ignored or deleted. (Sig lines do not count as part of a post)

Thanks TL, yeah the light is now staying dark as it should, my idle is better, more so cause I use a K&N air filter, the MAF is one in common with a Ford 4.0L v6 pickup truck.

A lifetime warranty, good deal.

I may yet get that 36mpg, on the last MAF & engine I got 33mpg.

One day I have to work on what amounts to the clutch, the car a/c, some leaks under the hood(power steering and oil), the cold soldered tachometer, and then the windshield come next for the car,

the house is next for a new bathroom window cause of bug problems that I'm having.

I'm also losing weight, my belt and pants are getting hard to keep up, I think I'm below 475lbs, I'll have to weigh myself asap again.

In any case I'm tired and a bit sore now since I also bought some gasoline for the car and I bought some food today, all the food is put away and my freezer is full.

I had a New MAF Sensor installed, the security torx screws were no deterrent, I have a friend who can work on cars for free and
my friend installed it, now I just need to go for a drive, hopefully I don't need to replace a vacuum hose or two on a 22yr old car,
just so I can get the car to pass the smog test.

The old MAF sensor was 22yrs old and p1131 said it was dirty/defective so it was replaced since it had been cleaned recently.

I'm still losing weight too, I was 475lbs when I last weighed myself, my jeans are getting hard to keep up.

I like my bed, considering I built most of it, the mattress is a firm Wolf Queen mattress from
Walmart, the metal/wood box spring is made by Zinus via Amazon, and the Birch slats are from
Lowes.

Over the weekend a friend will install the new MAF sensor, the p1131 code says the existing MAF
is defective or dirty(it had been cleaned already), that should extinguish the check engine light
provided everything else is ok like the failed smog check said.

There were no bugs on my bed last night or this morning.

I paid the rent, paid for my check into cash bill, and bought some food.

Getting in the car is getting easier thanks to me losing 43lbs, though easier does not mean it's not
difficult still, I'm down to 475lbs now.

I encased my queen sized mattress today, if the bugs are in the mattress, they’re tombed. I had to unzip the whole thing, and I had to remove the top and bottom sheets and pillows, I also had to evict Grace as she likes my bed. At first I started to put it on wrong, then I put one side on top and stretched it like a bottom sheet, then starting from the bottom right I slowly zipped it shut while moving the bottom side of the cover towards the head end and breathing hard and sweating all the while, the zipper ends at the bottom left just short of the corner, not long after I put the bottom sheet back on, then I tossed the top sheet on the bed to do later and I turned the light off and came out here to cool off and catch my breath.

Left side of bed on the floor near the light is a white square, the white square is a bed bug trap.
The Chocolate mattress has a creamy white core, coconut maybe?

I get power indirectly from SCE via an antique electrical delivery system, service per home is 60 Amps total.
My main breaker is 100 Amps, the stub has a 100 Amp breaker and a 60 Amp breaker, both the 100 and the 60 are connected to each other and is a reason why central a/c does not work in this park.
Next door has central a/c though it is not able to work, so I have 2 window a/c units totaling 16K Btu's which do work.

P0171 became P1131 on my car, 0171 is vague, 1131 is a bit better and came after the smog check failed cause the monitors weren't filled enough.
I thought my 22yr old maf was causing problems, 1131 confirmed it as did the check, I had the maf was cleaned before the check.
1131 says it's dirty or defective, the new maf should be here on 09/30/2021, everything else is listed as passing like the O2 sensors that were replaced over 2yrs ago.

Manufactured homes are built to the nationwide HUD building code and on their own land are eligible for FHA mortgages,
Mobile homes are only good for State building codes and conventional loans.

Some also said that when I caulked the holes in my walls too, nothing bad happened...

Well as soon as the supplies get here, I'm nuking the insects in my rear bedroom, Grace and I have nowhere to go, so the two vents in the rear bedroom & rear bathroom and the door draft to my bedroom will be blocked while 1 Hotshot can of 3 does its job.

I'm going to try and sleep in my chair and have my feet on my blanket covered igloo 72 cooler as it's all I have for the moment or I don't know, afterwards I get to open the bedroom window fully and put the floor fan on the bed to try and exhaust the air out of that part of the home with the help of the LG 10K a/c set to bring air into the home.

Afterwards I'm hoping to see no bugs in or on my bed... At least not alive.

Hotshot purple Fogger is on the way, should I do the whole house or just my bedroom and the closet and the rear bathroom?

Then venting the fogger after 12-18 hours, why 12-18?

I don't have a place for Grace and I to stay at, sure there is a motel that is pet friendly nearby, but my resources don't go there anytime soon.

1 bug last night, 4 two nights before, 2 before that, I check my bed everytime I lay down.

I'm currently working on getting my car ready to be smogged, the maf filter was cleaned and check engine light flickered after I drove it some,
I need to drive to the Post Office and to buy some food. If it goes dark, then I can get my car smogged, then I could buy a 30" draft blocker for my bedroom door.

I finally got most of the trash out as it's a cool day and I barely had the energy.

6 bags went on the roof of my car with 1 bag in the car, of the 6, only 1 fell off which I retrieved before getting to the dumpsters.

My legs feel like lead weights, but I did it, though I had to sit down twice, once after dumping the bags outside, then after moving them to the rear of my car.
I need a nap, the Nurse was some help, but once she found out about a blood pressure monitor at Rite Aid that was prescribed and not filled she didn't need to be here,
My PT guy will be here asap in about 2 hours. I also called my IHSS worker for info on my application for help around here, like with a window.

So far the bugs have not returned to my bed, I have the vacuum on standby just in case I need it, though for 1 or 2 my fingers should do.

Bugs 0, Me 2, my right forearm itching stopped after I got rid of the 2, one was a bit bloody looking after being squished, it was not itchy this morning or before, nor afterwards, they are coming thru the rear bathroom window.

I inspected the mattress and the box spring and only found 2, I had to take off the bottom sheet on my mattress, it's amazing what itching will do as motivation and Grace and I laid there for over an hour afterwards in peace.

I was told a nurse can get the window replaced, that will be nice if that's true. My Doctors Office called, but not the interview for the Nurse, unless it was for IHSS & the Nurse in the Doctors call.

I have to take the vacuum back to the rear bathroom and vacuum the window sill of loose foam, then get the caulk and seal any holes at the edge of the foam and the aluminum window slide with some silicon caulk.

The buggy war continues as it has for millennia. I even fixed My PC's mouse cursor, one setting in the control panel was unchecked, now it's checked(Turn On Click Lock) and I now have full control of my mouse.

Platinum or iridium are not stock to the zx2, iridium is a hotter plug, where as platinum is supposed to deliver higher mpg by comparison.

$95 to see what the trouble code is and maybe to replace it and Caseys has no opening until 0/09/2021.
$55 to get a smog check from a Test Only Station in Barstow for my car, the place won't do a smog check as the idiot light is lit and is an automatic FAIL and told me to get it fixed.
$135 to get My DMV registration, but no tags until smog is passed, DMV due by 09/08/2021.

If I pay the $135 then I'm broke, I have no idea what is wrong, the CA DMV will send the Registration to collections if it's late as I found out once before.

Everything here at this location requires some sort of transportation, food(Calfresh) and mail.

I live 13 miles from town in an actual desert and in a food desert, walking I can't do and there is no public transit or buses here.

The US Mail is delivered to the local Post Office about 2.5 miles from here and not to the street addresses.

So far food can't be delivered thru instacart when using Calfresh as Walmart, Stater Bros Markt, and Food4Less have had months to implement Calfresh deliveries, but have done nothing beyond flap their corporate gums.

Just to get out to my car on a fractured left foot that is healing I had to cut into an existing tear in a size 12 4ew shoe that needs to be replaced
with a size 13 4ew edema type shoe, the heal of my right foot is sore from being in a too small and worn out shoes.

I've got nothing, except a smog check that I have no money for, an oil leak(it was either remove a Ticked/Mite sofa & mattress or the 22yr old car that I thought didn't need more smog tests cause of its age), spark plugs that need to be replaced and injectors that need cleaning and a leaking power steering reservoir which uses ATF fluid, the reservoir is made by FORD and is not made anymore, isn't that wonderful?

I do have at least 5qts 5w20 synthetic oil(my car needs 4.5qts), 4 spark plugs, plus 2 rubber gaskets(oil pan and valve cover).

There is no public transit here, not even dial a ride.

My DMV registration deadline is 09/08/2021, after that it's sent to a collection agency and the amount goes up from $135, I can afford the fee as I'd planned for the $135.

Servicing, ugh my car needs a smog check and some work done on the spark plugs and the injectors and on an oil leak which includes the power steering, if one can smell it, it's technically an emission.

Then I can get my car's registration tags, of course I have to pay the registration on or before 09/08/2021, this I can do.

I may need to buy some injector cleaner though that way takes time and some oil gaskets if they are available still.

I have an oil pan gasket and a valve cover gasket, fel pro stopped making new parts for my car, but if another is needed I don't have that.

I'd thought one thing cause of my cars age and evidently that isn't true, sigh. I need to call a local friend who works on cars.

I just got thru taking a nap, a warm one at that as it was 108F outside when I started.

If there was another $600 stimulus check in my mailbox, 2/3rds would go on the back bathroom window replacement and the other 1/3rd to my car's steering wheel, a local friend thinks one is coming from the state of California for those who get a check like I do, I'll believe that when I see it.

I lost some weight since Aug 10th, 6lbs went bye bye, plus I'm going to have a twice a week Nurse check up on me, blood pressure, my fractured left foot.

It'll have been almost 1 month since Aug 5th on Sep 2nd, I may need to alter my left shoe with some scissors to get my foot in the shoe.

Technically I need to spray a circle around my home with some Ortho Home Defense spray, but then I have somewhat less than 1 gallon of the spray left which should be enough.

Also I should find a short serrated knife and cut away some of that foam I'd sprayed in the bathroom window frame and see where I missed and caulk any holes that I find with some GE silicon caulk that I have here.

If I'm lucky those 2 cans of eggs will arrive here, they're $35.99ea on Amazon and SNAP/EBT would normally pay for them, I did try, the FJ frozen breakfast sausage in my freezer will keep.

Grace won't be out here when I do this and I have to move her food for a bit, it's not like I have a new sofa/loveseat waiting from Midway in Victorville, at least not this second, so I have to do something.

This Ortho even kills scorpions, not that I have any here. I have to get all the crevices and probably cut the bottom black fabric away to get to the bottom of this.

A better solution I've found is somewhere down the proverbial road, 1st install the car's 'new' adjustable steering wheel, then a new window for the rear bathroom which is a bit pricey, but when it's shut the bugs can't get in thru there and the bathroom will also be cooler than outside too, now if I can get someone to install two pieces of weatherstripping on my outside doors I could minimize any entry. I used the last of an inside can of Ortho Home Defense Max last night on the rear bathroom window, Ortho lasts about 1 year.

In September assuming I can get the car turned 180 degrees, I'm buying a Hot Shot fogger kit from Amazon and I'm gonna wipeout any and all bugs in here.

I'll be committing Mass Bugacide...

Before I go to bed tonight I'm spraying around each foot of my bed, it's a good thing there are only 4 legs and that the Ortho sprayer can spray at any angle.

I had a small orange bug(a clover mite) land on me and it's the 3rd I've seen in here, earlier today I killed what might be a black tick by drowning it.

Of course for 3 hours all 3 foggers will be active and Grace & I will have to be out in the car, then 2 hours to pump the fog out by turning the LG window a/c unit on to bring outside air in and to open 4 windows and the front door.

The 3 foggers can do 744sqft, my home is 810sqft in size, the difference might be the studs, closed attics, & the space where the gas water heater is at since it's pretty close to what I measured at one time of all the rooms here which is about 759sqft.

Then Hot Shot will continue for 6 weeks all by itself, it smites mites. I have not seen anymore try and get in past the Ortho barrier, so some must be inside still.

I was hoping that I would not need to, but it seems that I must, so be it. Graces food that is out will have to go back into the refridge and her water emptied and stowed in the refridge too, if I can.

I think I was bitten, which might explain me not being able to carry much when I walked, its been about 3 weeks since I could carry something while walking, tonight I carried a full glass of punch & a forearm crutch.

The right foot is swollen and white, just not red or painful.

My Doctor said it could be fractured, he also mentioned physical therapy and a twice a week nurse, plus restarting my IHSS application since I'm surrounded by 1" rocks.

If it wasn't for the DMV registration for my car of $135 I'd buy a pair of sandals for swollen feet in a size 13 ew from orthofeet.com for about $100 plus probably sales tax, yeah I can't do both.

Well I tried to put my left shoe on today, my left foot is swollen and red and painful when I almost had the shoe on my foot.

DMV $135 next month which is due by the 8th or buy Shoes or not be able to pay the rent, buy food, take 6 bags of trash out, get my mail, vote...

This is just from a fall, there are 1 inch rocks surrounding my home on all sides and I need my left foot to get in the car, normally the drivers side is over concrete, it's over the rocks right now.

I'm barefoot...

Asap I'm tempted to commit mass bugacide with a bug bomb, of course then I need to find lodging for Grace and me for a night in October, my car's DMV fee is in September, then if any show up again repeat, Hot Shot has a fogger that is compatible w/pilot lights and can cover my entire home with 1 can, 2 hours of airing out and we can move back in after laying waste to bugs, mass bugacide.

I get on the sofa and I start itching, feels like fiberglass, my exposed skin itches.

Could be worse, one could live on the sunken part of zealandia, yep sleeping with the fishes & the fossils.

I need a housekeeper, at least that is what IHSS says, they say I have to hire someone and IHSS pays if my Doctors Office will get off their ass.

If it weren't for my stiff legs & bad hip joints it wouldn't be so hard doing anything, like bringing in groceries from the car where I brought 5 of 15 in and a friend brought in the other 10(usually once a month), vacuuming, taking the trash out, taking the rent to the managers office, taking the 2L bottles to be recycled for $, plus other misc tasks.

One of these days sometime in 2023 I'm going to get a 2016-2019 Chevy Volt as I need the hip room that a 1999 Ford Escort zx2 can't give me.

Just vacuuming the back bedroom & back bathroom and only mostly took 4 days.

The 4 bags to the right of the tv are trash, to the left are 3 bags with enough for a 4th bag of crushed 2L bottles to be recycled.

I got about 4.5 hours on it this morning, I even got the bottom sheet on after 3 tries, the 1st try seems to have been confusing, the 2nd only 3 of 4 corners reached, the 3rd try is perfection, next the top sheet tonight.

I also had to figure out how to get on and off the bed since this is different from the old setup, I'm leaving the forearm crutch at the head of the bed when I'm there.

Grace laid on my bed a lot with me, though if I turned on my right side she jumped off even though she was not in my way at all, the bottom sheet made a difference in getting on & off.

Posting after finishing my bed project with some help at the end.

My neighbor came by and moved everything into place with only some help from me.
I helped get the bed spring in place and the bagged mattress isn’t going back,
the bag could not be removed intact, we had to both tear the multilayer bag to pieces.
I sat on it for a few minutes, it’s nearly 85F in there now.
So by Friday at 7pm I can start making my bed and sleep in an unair-conditioned bedroom.
I also moved the night stand back in place and reconnected the light after I took this pic.
The bedspring comes right up to the top of the bed frame.
This project is now put to bed.

Dry lightning...


Dry lightning refers to lightning strikes occurring in this situation. Both are so common in the American West that they are sometimes used interchangeably. The latter term is a technical misnomer since lightning itself is neither wet nor dry. Dry thunderstorms occur essentially in dry conditions, and their lightning is a major cause of wildfires.

I just have to hurry up & wait for my next phone appointment with my Doctor which is once a month since that's when he's in town, yep I have what amounts to "the circuit MD".

I get to tell him I think I might have had covid-19 as I had a decent amount of the symptoms, of course I still can't go anywhere yet thanks to my toes, though they are getting better, probably in a week I can go to the Post Office and call and see if the office has a long haulers test yet.

If I did, the J&J shot helped, that and vitamin D3 in a 5000IU dose, having an O negative blood type from what I read from some studies didn't hurt, yep no antigens here.

In other news, I was able to move part of my bed frame over to the wall at the foot of the bed, next I need to get a bag out and bag a bunch of crushed 2L bottles and then move the cooler, move a chair, and clothes off of a hook and the bed spring can then be dragged to the bedroom where I should be able to put it in the bed frame. Turning the bed spring on end requires a decent amount of ceiling height which is not available in my bedroom.

Not long after do the same almost for the mattress before unbagging the mattress which has to expand for 48 hours before the bed can be made.

My bed seems to be my biggest project so far, of course it was done a little at a time when I had the energy.

Glad you aren't hurt Admiral.

Bad News: My left foot is swollen and a bit painful, though I can walk on it as long as I'm barefoot, of course that means I can't use my left foot to scoot my rear into the car and there is no public transit here, so I'm stuck.

Good News: I finished building the metal bed spring this morning. I just need to install this in my wooden queen 4 poster bed frame, then the mattress on top and 48hrs later I'll have an almost new bed.

Romans did use lead water pipes, this site says lead poisoning was at work in Rome.

When in ancient Rome, don’t drink as the Romans do. High-born Romans sipped beverages cooked in lead vessels and channeled spring water into their homes through lead pipes (pictured). Some historians argue that lead poisoning plagued the Roman elite with diseases such as gout and hastened the empire's fall. Now, a team of archaeologists and scientists has discovered just how contaminated Roman tap water was. The team dredged sediment downstream from Rome in the harbor basin at Portus, a maritime port of imperial Rome, and from a channel connecting the port to the Tiber River. The researchers compared the lead isotopes in their sediment samples with those found in preserved Roman piping to create a historical record of lead pollution flowing from the Roman capital. Tap water from ancient Rome likely contained up to 100 times more lead than local spring water,

It was said the athletes from the USA trained in Florida, Miami seems comparable weather wise at the moment to Tokyo.

I'm taking a day off from working on my home, today I just moved the vacuum in position so I can vacuum the rear of the home which has no a/c quickly when it's cool in the morning.

The old mattress and box spring got hauled away for $60, Walmart wanted almost $100.

Walmart will deliver a Queen sized mattress here after the 1st, while a place like Sit n Sleep will not deliver to the Wilderness, Yermo translated from Spanish means Wilderness.

Until then I'll continue to sleep on the sofa, as the a/c is great and the TV remote is not bad either. Now if only that hole in my thigh/butt cheek will heal up, it can be painful getting up.

Finished making more room in my living room, asap I'll vacuum the floors.
The junk hauler has still not responded to my text, maybe in a day or so I'll call Burrtec instead to haul away
an old mattress w/an old box spring & a "real old" broken sewing machine, since until I have room for a mattress
in the bedroom I have to sleep on the sofa and the covered Igloo 72 cooler, the 10K window a/c is great.
But no more for today, I had to move a bucket, some small parts, 4 boxes, and a slide tray table to achieve this.
There is nothing between the shelves and the metal box spring on the right anymore, besides carpet on the floor.

I did some more work on my new bed foundation, the last bolt has been TITANed and I have called someone to haul off the old mattress and old broken box spring and a an old sewing machine for $60.

For a while until the new mattress arrives from either Walmart($249.04) or Amazon($269.81) I have to sleep on the sofa and my diy ottoman.
I'd called Sit n Sleep, if I lived in Barstow delivery would be $350.00 I was told, they don't come here at all.
After the last 7 slats are installed on the velcro, then I can put a bag on it. The foundation was $154.55 delivered to me from Amazon w/a 700lb capacity.

My left leg was being quiet until after the xrays today, the leg had quieted down before this.

And I aimed the fan a bit away from the desk, though I have to reaim the fan everytime I go past it cause of clearance issues here.

Xrays of my left hip and knee while laying down as standing was attempted and was simply too much for Me. I did get xrayed, no worries.

My legs are hurting today cause of posing for the xrays, on my side, on my back, ugh… It was a hard flat surface to lay on, but the pillow was soft.

I left at almost noon, got there near 1pm in Apple Valley, had my xrays done by 1:35pm, and was home around 2:40pm, at least the ride was comfy as was the car a/c.

I got a ride in a Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Minivan to and from my xray appointment, while I was able to hoist myself in, the driver had to belt me in cause my extender was only 50% compatible, the door sill for the right passenger side is almost as high as I can step.

I took a nap after getting home as I was egghausted… A fiendish line...

I tried and failed to get a hold of the pharmacy department at the Doctors Office to renew the Meloxicam that I recently ran out of.

My UPS pkg is or was in Narita Japan, when will it get here? Next week sometime...

I think I need a 15oz pot pie.

I just got back in from a trip to Barstow and back, two friends needed to get some dog and cat food, pay bills, I got some gas for the car, it was 97F when we left and 109F when when got back, I even got $10.

I still think I'm losing weight, as getting in the car was a bit easier over the last 3 times and some clothing is fitting better, of course getting out of the car was not easy as my pants and shirt were wet from the heat.

Of course there is no dial a ride or bus line here, where one friend lives there is a bus line about 2 miles from here, but they only allow 4 bags per person.

Once the car has the proper steering column and steering wheel installed, then I can go to the ER and have my left thigh looked at again, several months back I had a hole in the skin there, it's back and a bit bloody as ever, it's not that I can see it, I can see the evidence left behind on my clothing, not to mention painful to get up with and right now sit on, though sitting is getting easier as my seat dries out.

The temp inside is 84F and is 111F outside and there is a 2% chance of something called "rain" outside...

Pain in my left leg if the fan is on, yet no pain in the right leg, weird... I told that to my Doctors office and suddenly it's "are you sure you don't have covid?" Sigh...

I'm vaccinated and largely I stay home as I've done since 2004 and I only go out for supplies or to do something like go to the Doctor or to have work done on what is now a too small car, my legs get shoved together below the knees and that makes my legs hurt since both hips were dislocated in 2002 and both had no corrective surgery, just pills, it's cheaper.

I drove the car yesterday and this morning my legs hurt, before I drove yesterday my legs were not hurting, it seems to take a few days before I can get back to normal, whatever normal is...

Until then my legs are just throbbing.

Oh and I think I am losing some weight since getting in the car was a bit easier, an adjustable steering wheel upgrade that I plan on doing will help there, just not with my legs being squeezed like an orange.

It was 117F yesterday, currently the temp is 109F.

Some complain taxes like on property are too high in California, when it's the value of said property that is too high, in 1970 a property in Culver City CA sold for $20,000.00, today you'd be lucky if that same property didn't have a price of $1 Million, this is driven by demand.

113F(45C) Predicted here today, 112F(44C) reached on Wednesday, 117(47) for Monday with 116(46) for Sat and Sunday, it's almost as hot as Palm Springs here.

Stay cool, yesterday the park had a 1 min power outage, but then the parks electrical infrastructure is an antique and needs to be replaced.

It's currently 87(30) outside, at 10am it's predicted to be 100(38), 95(35) at 9am.

NorCal suffered from a 6.0 Quake with 40 aftershocks within an hour or so on Wednesday out near Tahoe. All is quiet here in da wilderness.

61 is 16 backwards, though no one has told me that I look any younger than my 30's, at least not yet. What can I say? All my mom's children inherited her strawberry blond hair and decent height, 6'1"(my bro), 5'11"(my sis), and 6'1"(me) tall, mom was 5'6" and dad was 6'1" tall.

I'm going to have my hip xrayed soon and I get a ride there and back. It's getting hard to walk on my right hip, even with 3 types of pain pills in me. The left can be a pain, but it's not as bad as the right which in 2002 came almost entirely out when I broke my left shin, the left hip didn't dislocated quite as much then.

I found a place that will install in my car an adjustable steering wheel, they said they'd be caught up around the 13th, hopefully it won't exceed $135 since I have to leave $50 for cable internet if Spectrum doesn't honor their word of 1-2 billing cycles after the 10th and give me the EBB benefit that the FCC says I am eligible for. But I'll see if I have $135 or $185 after the 10th or not.

The hot didn't come with cruise control, yet the car was prewired for it and is now in there. Even the housing behind the wheel is the same as what my current one uses, though it's not in as good a shape as my current one but that's the plastic shroud, not the column itself.

The Rampage IV Black Edition can use a 20-1 TPM with Win11, in Win11 the TPM seems to be mandatory or it won't install, people must be pirating the older OS's or something.

May the 4th be with ya, it was for my dad and he was born in May.

Well as usual here we have the rules.

1. Winner of the last thread starts the new one with a post of these rules.
2. Chooses a future event which triggers the winner, e.g. post number, date-time, and records it privately somehow (yellow sticky, etc.)
3. Everyone has fun posting until the target event is reached.
4. When the target is reached, old winner posts declaration of new winner and also PMs them.
5. Shortly after this a Mod will lock the recently won thread. (My preference is for the winner to ask the mods to lock the old thread after the new one is started.)
6. No double posts. Violators buy drinks or a meal for the house in Rocky's.
7. Additional rule retained from the last round - No posts that APPEAR to be blank - these will be ignored or deleted. (Sig lines do not count as part of a post).

And may the lucky poster win. ;-)

I went thru my motherboard manual pdf files, I was wrong, the Asus Rampage IV Black has a 20-1 TPM slot, as to the Toshiba laptop I don't know.

So I have one Win11 capable motherboard, Win11 needs a minimum of 1.2 instead of 2.0.

NO TPM = No Win11 from what I've read, all my motherboards are without any TPM capability, so Win10 is the end of the line.

The Toshiba laptop? I've no idea and it has Win10 on it already.

I just have a few PCs to eventually work on or pay someone to work on, since I can't stand for very long anymore, just bringing in and putting away 12 bags of groceries took more than 1 hour recently in 100 degree temps.

My main win7 pc needs a cpu swap(1650v2 to 1660v2), a video card swap(1-1660Ti to a 3060), a pc case swap to a better case, and a 90 degree connector installed on a usb 3.0 cable and installed under a 1660Ti video card, the better case has a different power supply or should if the case is empty.
My 2nd win7 pc needs a video card swap(1-970 to 2-1660Ti), files copied to an ssd.
3rd PC needs the 1650 installed and video card hooked to power, install win10 and an ssd.
4th PC needs a 1660Ti installed along with win10 and an ssd.
5th PC needs the motherboard converted back to air and worked on to be made ready for 2 video cards, use a 970 video card for a win10 install to an ssd.

I do have the parts of course. The current PCs case is a piece of crap, getting the DVD drive out will be fun as the drive is tightly wedged in the case and the screws are there for looks only and the 1050w psu is to be removed so the case can be thrown out since I don't have much room here, it's a good spare psu.

The star is so huge now that if it replaced the Sun at the center of our solar system, its outer surface would extend past the orbit of Jupiter.

Massive supergiant stars like Betelgeuse are important because they expel heavy elements such as carbon into space that become the building blocks of new generations of stars. Carbon is also a basic ingredient for life as we know it.

Hey! We're converging:

Here be 20 deg C and lots of rain...


It was 109 outside in Barstow CA and there was some rain there.

12 bags of groceries and 1 bag of mail, 2 trips, I just barely made it up the steps thanks to both hips causing me trouble and it was 112 at home.

I even got gasoline for the car, at least the $600 GSG check deposit was easy, I just used the Chase app at home. Now I'm tired and achy.

GSG = Golden State Grant

For a bit I have enough bananas...

I still have some more food to buy and some mail to pickup, but only the lobby will be open on Saturday, so Monday it is.

Best Climate and Site for Growing Banana

    Bananas grow best in humid tropical regions. In the United States bananas can be grown in USDA Zones 9 through 11. A few cultivars can survive in cold regions with protection, as cold as Zone 5.

    The optimal temperature for banana growing is 78° to 86°F.

    Plants require 10 to 15 months of frost-free weather to produce a flower stalk. Most varieties stop growing when temperatures drop below 57° Freezing temperatures will kill the foliage. Conversely, bananas will also begin to slow growth at 80°F and stop growing at 100°F. In very hot weather, bananas must receive ample water.

    Bananas grow best in full sun, but the leaves and fruit will sunburn and scorch in bright sunlight when temperatures are high. Check the growing requirements of the variety you choose to grow; in some locations, some varieties are best planted in partial shade.

    Plant bananas in compost-rich, loamy, well-drained soil.

    Bananas prefer a soil pH between 5.5 and 6.5.

    Protect bananas from wind for maximum yield. Bananas are susceptible to wind damage; they can be uprooted and blown over by the wind.

    It is best to plant bananas in a block or clump of several plants. Block planting allows shallow-rooted plants to support one another; block planting also increases humidity around plants; plants in the center or blocks tend to fruit the best because they are protected from the wind. A block might be 5 rows of 5 plants in each row; each plant spaced about 5 feet apart.

A car door closing hard against my left side, if the center console was partly removed I'd have another 1"-3" to my right, otherwise it's a very tight fit in my car.

Otherwise I don't know.

Be glad the gulf stream current is still active, it might get really cold without it.

The Gulf Stream, together with its northern extension the North Atlantic Drift, is a warm and swift Atlantic ocean current that originates in the Gulf of Mexico and stretches to the tip of Florida, and follows the eastern coastlines of the United States and Newfoundland before crossing the Atlantic Ocean as the North Atlantic Current. The process of western intensification causes the Gulf Stream to be a northwards accelerating current off the east coast of North America. At about 40°0?N 30°0?W, it splits in two, with the northern stream, the North Atlantic Drift, crossing to Northern Europe and the southern stream, the Canary Current, recirculating off West Africa.

The Gulf Stream influences the climate of the east coast of North America from Florida to Newfoundland, and the west coast of Europe.

How the Drink Should Taste

Put simply; this is supposed to be an alien drink, so don’t be afraid to explore your palate when you’re ready to make your first cup.

To be honest, it really wouldn’t be Klingon if it didn’t have a bit of spice, right?

For this reason, if you want to kick it up a notch, feel free to throw in a few interesting ingredients like cayenne pepper or smoked paprika to your drink. Having said that, some people like the drink on the sweet side as well, which illustrates how varied the experience can be. I’ve had both variations, and both can be pleasing to the palate. As a matter of fact, the recipes that I am going to show you blend both savoriness and sweetness so that you can have a unique experience when you first taste this drink.

Oh and on Africa, there is no such nation as Africa, though South Africa exists and the African Union barely exists, otherwise Africa is a Continent that is the cradle of all humans on Earth.

For light Black is darkness, for everything else Black is a color. Whites are not superior to anyone, whites are just mutated Africans...

Then there is the cloudy day to end all cloudy days, yep the one on Venus, it's longer than the year there and backwards too, definitely weird.

My gnu longer & wider shoes in brown should be here by UPS on Friedday the 7th, until then I'm house bound as my old shoes are making my right foot hurt in my heel.

Next month or asap I'm ordering 2 pairs of black 9xl jeans and an 8xl shirt in blue, I had wanted to get 3 shirts with one each in red, green, and blue,
but I'll see if they're in stock when I do order them. 3 shirts @ $31ea and 2 jeans @ $60ea would be almost $220 total which includes hemming to the jeans plus shipping, the $220 is before taxes.

It's 83F here in Yermo CA and in Kingman AZ it's 77F, my relatives are moving to Kingman they said, so much for Scottsdale AZ.

Kingman has 13hrs and 40mins of daylight today and 4% more humidity, which is more than Yermo has.

So far they're treating my nephews cancer, beyond that I don't know what to say as I don't know much else.

I was going to buy some size 13 w/a width of 6E hook & loop shoes and I found out they're out of stock.

Yes they're in stock in brown. I was told that Black might be in around May 15th-29th and I don't want to wait that long.

And so I just bought a pair, they should be here from zappos.com around May 8th, my right heel at the rear is hurting cause I'm wearing an old pair of size 12 4E shoes.

I doubt it, filter most likely, still it's called the pink moon cause of the time of year and of course some flowers.

The name Pink Moon comes from one of the first spring flowers, Wild Ground Phlox, also known as Moss Phlox (Phlox subulata) as they cover the ground like a pink blanket. These brightly-colored flowers are native to North America,

The Noid is back!


The Noid, Domino’s annoying pizza-destroying mascot from the ‘80s, is coming back to stop self-driving pizza delivery cars, and also to fight Crash Bandicoot. That’s not a sentence you expected to read, and I didn’t expect to write it, but here we are. Welcome to whatever version of reality this is.

Announced today, Domino’s is bringing back the Noid, a villainous character who first appeared in the pizza chain’s commercials in 1986. After starring in commercials, video games, and more for a few years as part of a bizarre marketing campaign, the Noid fell out of fashion around the same time a man in 1989 held Domino’s employees hostage, seemingly over his anger about the character.

But it’s 2021 and everything is stupid now, so the Noid is back.

The Traveling Wilburys - The End Of the Line...


"End Of The Line"

Well it's all right, riding around in the breeze
Well it's all right, if you live the life you please
Well it's all right, doing the best you can
Well it's all right, as long as you lend a hand

You can sit around and wait for the phone to ring (End of the Line)
Waiting for someone to tell you everything (End of the Line)
Sit around and wonder what tomorrow will bring (End of the Line)
Maybe a diamond ring

Well it's all right, even if they say you're wrong
Well it's all right, sometimes you gotta be strong
Well it's all right, As long as you got somewhere to lay
Well it's all right, everyday is Judgment Day

Maybe somewhere down the road aways (End of the Line)
You'll think of me, wonder where I am these days (End of the Line)
Maybe somewhere down the road when somebody plays (End of the Line)
Purple haze

Well it's all right, even when push comes to shove
Well it's all right, if you got someone to love
Well it's all right, everything'll work out fine
Well it's all right, we're going to the end of the line

Don't have to be ashamed of the car I drive (End of the Line)
I'm just glad to be here, happy to be alive (End of the Line)
It don't matter if you're by my side (End of the Line)
I'm satisfied

Well it's all right, even if you're old and gray
Well it's all right, you still got something to say
Well it's all right, remember to live and let live
Well it's all right, the best you can do is forgive

Well it's all right, riding around in the breeze
Well it's all right, if you live the life you please
Well it's all right, even if the sun don't shine
Well it's all right, we're going to the end of the line

I have 2 brackets and a steel center beam, all 3 are made by Ikea, I just need someone to attach them to the foot and head boards, the foot board should be no problem, but the head board will need either a 2x4 or a 2x6 to attach the bracket to. Until then the box spring will have to sit on the slats.

I just bought a package of 60x0.75 inch slats from Lowes with free shipping, waterfox could not be used for checkout at Lowes and so I had to use chrome instead.

The center beam support could be a piece of 2x4 lumber with 3 adjustable center bed support legs or 3 metal IKEA parts, a piece of 2x6 lumber and maybe 2 joist hangers.

I probably will dispose of my queen sized box spring.

Light pollution at night, so nothing spectacular here.

It's the Mojave desert, a few road runners and bobcats and ground squirrels live out here, not to mention a few birds and feral house cats.

I drink diet cola at room temp and I don't believe "big sugars" sales pitch.

I also have had a hiatal hernia since birth, this is part of my stomach being up with my lungs.

I have 4 dislocated joints(hips and shoulders), arthritis from my shoulders on down, damaged knees and ankles.

2 of those joints are eligible for replacement, but my weight is in the way, so no surgery.

Where I live at might be inexpensive, but at a cost, the temps can be extreme here, so going outside for a walk which I can't do now is not advisable all the time since I live in the mohave desert.

On Wednesday I'm calling the YVFD to bandage my upper left thigh near my ass as it can't form a scab when my jeans or briefs keep pulling against the wound and no I don't how it happened, only that one day recently it became painful to get up and I am leaving some blood where I sit, I have a 1/4 inch spot in my jeans. I'd do this myself, but I can't see or reach there.

Thanks.

At least I can take pain pills, a friend of mine is at risk of another stroke and can't take any pain pills, at least until the pills are eliminated as a cause of the strokes.

Today I managed to print out some forms, though one sheet required some adjustment to print out correctly on the dot matrix printer.

There's a fly in the ointment, turns out the head board doesn't go as low as the foot board does, so it means getting creative, a pair of concealed joist hangers for a 2x6 would fix that along with a 2x6 or a 2x8 stud.

No hand sawing, I'm not capable of doing the work, though I know someone here who could. My bedposts are 100% wood, so this should work. The head board was not made with a center beam in mind.

My back is riddled with arthritis so I can't sleep on the floor, wood or concrete.

15yrs and 2 slats broke in my bed, so I am looking at converting my bed frame to a platform bed frame w/o a box spring, some Ikea center beam parts and some 59.87-60.00 inch pine slats and I should be good to go, I'll just need someone's skills here. The actual width of the bed frame is 60.50 inches between the wooden rails. The Ikea parts attach to the head board and foot board with metal brackets and screws.

Still EV's are the future, all the major automakers have said so already, prices like with PCs will fall and for some prices like the Nissan Leaf have already declined by about $5,000 since 2011.

EV solid state batteries are being developed, by Toyota among others.

Solid-state automotive battery could transform EV industry. More powerful, longer lasting, faster charging. Those promises are being made about a newly designed lithium battery that could up-end the current race to power a future generation of electric vehicles.
[snip]
Samsung has developed a solid-state battery using silver-carbon instead of lithium. This prototype battery has the potential for 500 miles of range in a pack half the size of a modern lithium-ion

Maybe one day in the next two or three years I'll get an EV, like a 2016-2019 Volt or a 2021+ Bolt, Volts don't seem to be smogable since the engine is considered a generator and sends electricity to the electric motors while moving and charging the battery in mountain mode while driving, the car charges the battery at home in 3-4 hours with a 240v source for the 3.3Kw charger, charging time is less with a 2019 Premier or an upgraded 2019 LT.

My current car has an OBD, but at 22yrs old is now exempt by law from smog checks, but it is 22yrs old and some parts are either non existent or hard to find or getting expensive.

TL You're lucky if you were not born anywhere in the LA basin, I was born in Los Angeles in 1960 and I have asthma from the dense smog and the oil/gas refineries that are there, among other intense sources of smog, smog that from offshore looked like a big stationary brown cloud with yellow around the edges. Plus I have a hiatal hernia that I was born with as a complication, clean air is much better than air that except for when it rains is very dirty and static, in LA it's called an inversion layer and that just holds the smog in place, LA used to look a lot like Almaty in Kazakhstan.


An inversion traps air pollution, such as smog, close to the ground. An inversion can also suppress convection by acting as a "cap". If this cap is broken for any of several reasons, convection of any moisture present can then erupt into violent thunderstorms

In LA we didn't always get rain, we got downpours.

These Permanent Codes seem to be for diagnostic purposes as in Trouble Codes according to the BAR. As such they should be helpful in fixing a car like when something is malfunctioning and I like stuff that works correctly.

Congrats Carlos on your purchase.

Just ethernet here, sure I could go wireless, but what I have is really slow, so it's a minimum of cat6 ethernet cabling here.

A Gigabyte 3060 Gaming OC video card is on its way here via UPS, so I'll have to install the 461.72 driver and see about making a bios setting change,
motherboard wise AMD is using pci-e4.0 and Intel is still on pci-e 3.0 and might be going 5.0 to one up AMD and the 30x0 cards are backwards compatible with 3.0.

I still need to get that oil leak in my car fixed and I have an appointment at the Doctors Office on Monday, yep to get a shot,
though it would be nice if it were the Johnson and Johnson, as the timing might be a problem for the others,
afterwards I can see when I can get the car's oil leak fixed.

Paint & primer in one for the home's exterior is bought & delivered, HD's calculator said 3.0 gallons will do for the walls and I have 4.84 gallons, do I should be good there,
I still need 3-2"x4"x96" pieces of gray plastic lumber for the awnings, but I'm working on that. The paint bucket says White, at least I should not have to buy another bucket, I hope.

Thanks Wiggo, on Saint Paddy's day no less.

1. Winner of the last thread starts the new one with a post of these rules.
2. Chooses a future event which triggers the winner, e.g. post number, date-time, and records it privately somehow (yellow sticky, etc.)
3. Everyone has fun posting until the target event is reached.
4. When the target is reached, old winner posts declaration of new winner and also PMs them.
5. Shortly after this a Mod will lock the recently won thread. (My preference is for the winner to ask the mods to lock the old thread after the new one is started.)
6. No double posts. Violator buys a round for the house in Rocky's.
7. Additional rule retained from the last round - No posts that APPEAR to be blank - these will be ignored or deleted. (Sig lines do not count as part of a post)

Enjoy.

People should not have malware infected phones where the malware is in the firmware and can't be removed.

Android is built upon Linux.

Android is built upon the Linux kernel, a software stack that interfaces with the hardware of a device. It basically enables an operating system to communicate with the device---whether that's a PC, a smartphone, or other hardware. The Linux operating system should really be referred to as GNU/Linux.

Yep, one can thank partly Knotts for the Boysenberry, but only partly...


The exact origins of the boysenberry are unclear, but the most definite records trace the plant as it is known today back to grower Rudolph Boysen, who obtained the dewberry–loganberry parent from the farm of John Lubben.[5]

In the late 1920s, George M. Darrow of the USDA began tracking down reports of a large, reddish-purple berry that had been grown on Boysen's farm in Anaheim, California.[6] Darrow enlisted the help of Walter Knott, another farmer, who was known as a berry expert. Knott had never heard of the new berry, but he agreed to help Darrow in his search.

Darrow and Knott learned that Boysen had abandoned his growing experiments several years earlier and sold his farm. Undaunted by this news, Darrow and Knott headed out to Boysen's old farm, on which they found several frail vines surviving in a field choked with weeds. They transplanted the vines to Knott's farm in Buena Park, California, where he nurtured them back to fruit-bearing health. Walter Knott was the first to commercially cultivate the berry in Southern California.[6]

He began selling the berries at his farm stand in 1932 and soon noticed that people kept returning to buy the large, tasty berries. When asked what they were called, Knott said, "Boysenberries," after their originator.[7] His family's small restaurant and pie business eventually grew into Knott's Berry Farm. As the berry's popularity grew, Mrs. Knott began making preserves, which ultimately made Knott's Berry Farm famous.

Yes. Though without solar and/or a geothermal or ground source heatpump the bill can be more expensive, a smooth top electric range is easy to keep clean compared to the gas range that I have. Current total gas and electric costs per month is about $136 a month, though summer is not here yet and that would be about $205 a month or so with what I currently run. The only a/c that works here is 120v window units, but that is a park wide problem, next door has a central a/c unit that can't be used cause the electric service here is too old and small.

PC's are 120v here, in theory I could run a psu off of 240v, but they take up a lot of room and there is no room for 6-240v breakers in the current box. 240v breakers take up 2-1 inch spaces, top is the 100 amp main breaker.

Yeah and the park personnel are slowly doing the repairs which they are capable of doing, as long as they get a real paving contractor one day.

I've been slowly repairing my home since early 2007, it's getting there. Some of what I've done has liberated some income from the electrical bill that I had.

This home should have a 100 amp service, instead it's running @ 60% of that, any electrical work on my home has been done by licensed personnel when my skills or ability would not suffice.

Back in 2006 when the park had different owners and personnel, they tried hooking the 100 amp stub up to the park cables directly and there was no power, so they hooked up a 60 amp breaker in the stub and I had power, the 60 amp and 100 amp breakers in the stub I think are connected together and it's been like that ever since then.

Technically the homes breaker box and stub could hold a 125 amp main breaker in each, but I'd need an electrician to see if that would work or not as the box is outfitted w/a 100 amp breaker, plus I'd need another 60 amps from the park too. 25% out of spec or get a bigger breaker box, a bigger box is preferable if I don't need to rewire the home.

I still need to have 4 - 20 amp 120v breakers and 4 outlets installed, plus install the 10 amp 120v breaker for the gas furnace while removing the unneeded 50 amp 240v breaker that was there for an a/c unit that is long gone and get a 40 amp 240v breaker for EV charging w/a 14-50 weather proof and lockable outlet. Though I'm not buying a 40 amp breaker right now as I'll leave that to later since I could hook up the 60 amp breaker if it's feasible.

Of the 4 - 20 amp outlets, one is for a treadmill, the other three are for the PCs near the TV. I'd have had all of this done years ago, but loans end at the park boundary.

With my current breaker box I still can't go full electric and/or solar, so water heating, clothes drying, the furnace, and most likely the range have to stay on natural gas until further notice.

Hey! Not in the water... Fish do that :-)


Now there's a question:

In the inland vastness that is the USA, are there entire communities that have no swimming pool and the people have never experienced open water?

I can barely take care of myself these days, the old pool here is cracked and has no lifeguard and is not setup for swimming lessons to a guy with OA and 4 unrepaired dislocated joints(both hips & shoulders), I'm eligible for having my right hip joint replaced if I can lose some weight though I was not told how much to lose, the park is not touching the pool, the extra home spaces have been converted into parking spaces since to expand the park from 61 spaces to the full 88 spaces they would have to upgrade the water, sewer, nat gas, and electrical first as they are all ancient. Right now all the park is doing is refurbishing every home in the park that they own plus the appearance of the park, anything underground might be worked on at a later date as would the rotting streets, just not now. A while back the park owner got suckered by some people and got streets that look ok but are just covered with crack sealant that started to wear out after a couple of months and some asphalt.

Sabre Tooth cats are technically not gone, as there have been more than a few that have come and gone and so there could be more in the pipeline someday, maybe.

One of the best-known genera is Smilodon, the species of which, especially S. fatalis, are popularly, but incorrectly, referred to as "saber-toothed tigers". However, usage of the word cat is in some cases a misnomer, as many species referred to as saber-toothed "cats" are not closely related to modern cats (Felidae). Instead, many members are classified into different families of Feliformia, such as Barbourofelidae and Nimravidae;[6] the oxyaenid "creodont" genera Machaeroides and Apataelurus; and two extinct lineages of metatherian mammals, the thylacosmilids of Sparassodonta, and deltatheroideans, which are more closely related to marsupials. In this regard, saber-toothed cats can be viewed as examples of convergent evolution.[7] This convergence is remarkable due not only to the development of elongated canines, but also a suite of other characteristics, such as a wide gape and bulky forelimbs, which is so consistent that it has been termed the "saber-tooth suite."[8]

Of the feliform lineages, the family Nimravidae is the oldest, entering the landscape around 42 mya and becoming extinct by 7.2 mya. Barbourofelidae entered around 16.9 mya and were extinct by 9 mya. These two would have shared some habitats.

Martian weather between May 14, 2018 and May 20, 2018:

The Mars Color Imager (MARCI) aboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) acquires a global view of the red planet and its weather patterns every day.

Between May 14 and May 20, 2018 on Mars, weather patterns were fairly typical for this time of martian year. A large dust storm was observed over Cimmeria and Sirenum at the beginning of the week. In the following sols, the dust lifting quickly abated but a residual dust haze was observed spreading eastward over Aonia. Looking to the northern plains, a number of dust storm and water-ice clouds were spotted propagating east from Arcadia to Utopia. Dust lifting along the equatorial latitudes was rather uneventful apart from a tiny spiral storm near the caldera of Pavonis Mons at the start of the week. For most afternoons, condensate water-ice clouds continued to linger over Tempe landforms, Tharsis Montes slopes, and plateaus near Valles Marineris. Both rovers, Opportunity in Endeavour Crater and Curiosity in Gale Crater explored under storm-free conditions throughout the week.

Instead 100% chance of some blood tests and a Doctors appointment, and I need to go buy some Imodium while I'm in town, until the labs I can't eat, though water is ok...

Some of my meds are causing me problems, before the current Doctor they didn't. And so I have sore legs as a result.

I have the same problem but I have the space. I buy the small 1.5 pound bags. The small inch and a half to marble size tators. I know they cost more but are used quicker. I got a 5 pound bag of Yukon yellow potatoes that I will be making into potato soup in a few days. I know it looks like a lot but I portion pack in the refrigerator for a few meals ahead. I get four hours of up time after work before I have to get into bed if I want about six hours of sleep.

On another matter I have this to say:

Ok I got back from the Doctor, had my finger tip pricked, seems I need more IRON, so the Doctor is sending out a prescription for more IRON, but wait there's more...
I had myself weighed there and I now weigh 480lbs, I weighed 510lbs on 10/21/2020, on 12/02/2020 I weighed 486lbs, so I've lost 30lbs total and 6lbs this time. The water pills I'm taking seem to be working. Now I need something to eat, I'm hungry. Maybe another 280lbs to go... This is gonna take a while.

Pellucidar of course is a work of fiction, but some I think have trouble with fiction, to them fiction and facts are the same...

Pellucidar is a fictional Hollow Earth invented by American writer Edgar Rice Burroughs for a series of action adventure stories.[1] In a crossover event between Burroughs's series, there is a Tarzan story in which he travels into Pellucidar.

The stories initially involve the adventures of mining heir David Innes and his inventor friend Abner Perry after they use an "iron mole" to burrow 500 miles into the Earth's crust. Later protagonists include indigenous caveman Tanar and additional visitors from the surface world, notably Tarzan, Jason Gridley, and Frederich Wilhelm Eric von Mendeldorf und von Horst.


I could literally pass the time reading this at one time, lots of fantasy.

Historically we've had gusts up to 77mph, but that's rare here as are fires.

40% chance of rain, maybe as much as 0.11 inches, out here that's a good amount.

What's up?

Pain just below my left knee appeared this morning(5 out of 10 for pain), I can stand and barely walk, most of the pain is when I walk, I've taken all my pills except the 2 prescription water weight pills, so hopefully the Bayer back & body pain pills will help since I don't want to reschedule a Doctor's appointment, though I might have to.

Stay 6ft or more apart... And what blood type are you?

I hear it likes A or AB a lot, but O Negative? Not as much, good luck. I'm O Negative.

I was vaccinated for the flu months ago and incidents of the flu are way down.

The flu does not attack the lungs...

Someone in Detroit MI is insanely rich now or will be soon. $739.6 Million...

Wish it was me. As they say in church. Faith without works is dead. So you can’t win if you don’t play.

I don't go to church just like the rest of my family did not go, it was left up to me, tried twice, found it was not for me.

I have more important things to buy like Bayer back and body or 10 gallons of paint & primer for the park to paint my home with or Vitamin C and uhf tv antenna parts or something.

Being in pain 24/7 is no fun and the pills I take tend to make me sleepy, Bayer, 6 prescriptions: high blood pressure, cholesterol, iron, 2 types water weight and 1 that I can't remember, 1 of the water weight smells minty, plus vitamin C and D3. So far working on a pc to add power cables to three 1660Ti video cards has been to put a cardboard psu box next to the pc and that was about 2 weeks back.

Next month once the felpro rubber valve cover and oil pan gaskets arrive I'll have Ford fix the oil leak and have them check the pcv valve to make that is still working, I was told a stuck pcv valve could blow out the valve cover gasket if the valve is not working.

I'll also have another 22 months before all my debt is paid down, at least I hope so.

One day I'd like to put in a concrete driveway and take out the cracked concrete that is part of the concrete the home is sitting on and gravel that serves as My driveway, about 63'x11'x4". The concrete in My lot is severely cracked cause my 13.5'x60' home is sitting on top of part of it, the concrete was a driveway at one time, but is not long enough to reach under My front steps which will have to be either repaired or replaced cause of dry rot, the park is OLD.

Right now I'm having work done on my car, an oil leak is next and I bought 2 FelPro rubber gaskets today, one for the valve cover and one for the oil pan.

I've replaced 2 front tires, 2 rear struts, next the oil leak, buy a pair of new shoes for me at zappos, install 2 engine mounts as the other 2 were replaced about a year back at a shop that is out of business now, install an adjustable steering column, install 2 Moog front struts plus do an alignment, Ford will do the work, and Allstar Glass will replace the cracked windshield.

I also have to buy 10 gallons of exterior paint and primer(Bright Star RGB=221:226:228) in February so the park can paint the outside of my home from the HomeDepot, the HD will deliver.

Of course add a cat in and timber! And while I didn't break anything, getting 440lbs off the floor using only My left side was very painful and I was already sore from the fall, My right side has two past dislocations, the right hip is eligible for a new joint, but cause I'm heavy, it's go away fatty.

I'd be coughing at 73F, so mine is set at 79F, dang asthma, I'm somewhat like Mr Freeze in a way, I drink My diet Pepsi cola at room temperature, I don't like to cough.

I spent some money on the front door which was leaky and so next month should be better since the front door no longer leaks and was professionally weatherstripped. The weatherstripping I'd bought a month or so back, it should help, that and some spray foam for the leaky back bathroom window. Weatherstripping is an inexpensive fix and getting a park employee to install it on My home is fantastic, down at or near 31F outside the gas furnace will stay on for about 14mins, then shut off for about an hour or so.

Soon I'll be getting some work done on My car, at least as soon as a 2nd Moog rear strut gets here on Monday so I can make an appointment with Ford Service on My 21yr old car.

NASA is researching Supersonic flight for commercial flight to make sonic booms sound like a thump, this was on NOVA, some might be mentioned Here.

NASA’s X-59 Quiet SuperSonic Technology (QueSST)
[snip]
“In 2024, NASA will fly the X-59 over select communities to measure public perception of the sound,” the agency said. “The data from these tests will be given to U.S. and international regulators, potentially opening the future to commercial supersonic flight over land.”

As previously reported by AVweb, NASA officially cleared the X-59 QueSST aircraft for final assembly in December 2019. Construction and systems integration are expected to be completed next year with the aircraft’s first flight scheduled for 2022. The X-59 was designed to test “technology that reduces the loudness of a sonic boom to that of a gentle thump.”

Nice car, considering the max breaker here, I get 60% of the main breakers ability(100Amps) thanks to the parks antique electric system which uses 60Amp stubs, which is why I could not run a 240v 60Amp clothes dryer and why I run a gas clothes dryer, charging here would be limited to 40Amps, 32Amps to the car, sigh, right now it's just not on My horizon, just fixing My present car and doing some work on the home that I live in is, though if FORD traded My present Hunk of Junk for a Mach E I would not refuse it as long as I could pay $100 for it just to make the SSA happy. The front door is nearly fixed as it has new weatherstripping in on the lock side of the door and the bottom has a part to be installed, but a park employee said he'll get that asap as it requires the old sweeper to be removed from the front and the new part slid on and maybe trimmed to fit, maybe. The park is fixing places and and making everything look good and mine is on the list of places to paint and put snowcoat on the roof. Having a furnace only come on only at night is pretty good, though it won't show up on the bill until February 2021. I seriously doubt FORD would do what I suggest. sigh.

Someone thought there was a fire in the area cause a fire truck was in the park before 6:48am, I called SCE and got the power restored as there is not a fire within 150 miles in any direction and the outage was promptly rescinded at about 8am. In the desert fires don't spread far since it's largely flat out here and so We are not supposed to have power blackouts or shutoffs due to fire, I've lived here since July 2004.

Yesterday was fun, I had to call AAA, I had two problems, one I was out of gasoline at the Stater Bros Market shopping center, and two unknown to Me the fuel line was not securely plugged into the filter or whatever that is behind the zetec 2.0L engine, it’s supposed to click in place, this has happened once before, so it's not secure or fixed and is affecting My gas mileage, when I go to Ford to have the rear struts installed I’ll have Ford Service fix it. I had a small puddle of gas on the ground @ Staters as I did more than 6 months ago at the local Post Office.

So rear struts, an engine oil leak, and a fuel line problem, sigh. Plus having to pay down debt for another 2 years and I'm about 8 months into that...

Right now I'm just trying to decide on which brand of strut to get for My car, KYB is real good and expensive, Monroe roadmatic seems to be near junk from what other people have said, so I may go with Moog.

One of these days I'd hope the park will update the antique electrical infrastructure here, the stubs here are all 60Amps max, I'm running at 60% of what I could be,
I still can't find the money to move this home to its own land, maybe I'll inherit something someday which could solve that, until then I'm staying here in the wilderness.

Only 39F? Here the weather was 27F in Yermo, currently 28F. The climate here can go to extremes, but outside of some noisy off road nuts, is pretty quiet.

The climate here is a solid 7.8 / 10... But it's home and is listed in one of the best places website, go figure.

Weather is how the atmosphere is behaving and its effects upon life and human activities. Weather can change from minute-to-minute. Most people think of weather in terms of temperature, humidity, precipitation, cloudiness, brightness, visibility, wind, and atmospheric pressure.

Climate is the description of the long-term pattern of weather in a place. Climate can mean the average weather for a particular region and time period taken over 30 years. Climate is the average of weather over time.

Alex Trebek is dead, He had pancreatic cancer and hosted Jeopardy as long as He could, He was 80.

I found watching the show was interesting as one would learn something new.

George Alexander Trebek[2] OC (/tr??b?k/; July 22, 1940 — November 8, 2020) was a Canadian-American television personality, game show host and actor. He has been the host of the syndicated game show Jeopardy! since its revival in 1984, and has also hosted a number of other game shows, including The Wizard of Odds, Double Dare, High Rollers, Battlestars, Classic Concentration, and To Tell the Truth. Trebek was contracted to host Jeopardy! until 2022.[3] Trebek has also made appearances in numerous television series, in which he usually played himself. A native of Canada, he became a naturalized United States citizen in 1998.[4] For his work on Jeopardy!, Trebek has received 31 nominations for the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Game Show Host, winning 7 times.


Now Jeopardy will need a new host as the show must go on.

I received My "new" reconditioned phone in and except for one time and a few resets to factory default settings, the phone only activated once after that it was activation incomplete.

The new phone has a Sprint sim card in the phone and My old phone has a sim card that is known to work with Assurance Wireless, one lady said My phone is incompatible with AW even though the new phone was bought from Shop AW.

One AW tech asked about the sim card, I should have not taken the card out as I have the card the sim was punched out of, duh, sure I was able to get the card back in the phone, but by then AW was closed since it's now Saturday evening here.

I'm without all but emergency phone access and hopefully I can get this fixed on Monday since My Doctor is going to call Me on Monday @ 3:15pm PST.

So I can't receive calls or make them.

Otherwise My new phone works.

By then things will settle down to more Yokai like Inuyasha and such on TV.

The neighbors moved out to a larger place and someone who works here in the park mentioned the phrase "they live like pigs" to Me, even if they are quiet...

It's too bad that the 4 tires that were discarded were 65's and not 60's as they were 185/65x15 tires and My wheel wells like 185/60x15's since I could use 2 new tires soon...

It's 82F and 15% humidity inside and the gas furnace has not been on since early this morning.

Yeah that's a problem, Walmart withdrew the benches where people would wait for a mart cart at, so I tend not to go there anymore unless I can find a cart outside that is fully charged.

Amazon has the one you have for $50, the one I looked at does not use hoses and is about $20, it does have a usb cable and 4 AA batteries, the cable is either for charging the batteries or to connect to a PC.

Got to go, later.

Posting after having My blood pressure checked, it was 157/67, I was asked if I have a blood pressure cuff at home, I said no I don't.

I may have to look into getting one, eventually.

I choose neither, the Desert works for Me, flooding is not possible and fire is rare for level ground.

Where I've lived at We've never had any fires here since I started living here in 2004. Some smoke, but no fires.
