Too much demand, and not enough supply. More supply, less heroin users, less costs to society.

In Atlanta years ago, there was an outcry concerning the amount of crime on a certain street downtown (I forget the actual name). So they RENAMED the street. Now, there's no more crime on that former street name.

They could rename Heroin to something else...

I'm struggling to understand the urgency of preventing heroin deaths. Unless Mrs. Bill Clinton has found a way to monetize drug abuse, then it all makes sense.

A CAUTIONARY TALE


Well this is a sumbitch.  After reinstalling
Win 8 (in a pique I deleted  it a month ago-without a reliable backup because that's how pissed off I was). I used to do that all the time, and it was a piece of cake. No more. 

Just a month ago I finished the June Mahjong Challenge (3 puzzles a day) with 100% for the third month in a row, although I did have a real problem with one, and took me at least a dozen tries. I really knew something was amiss when I started the June challenge beginning Jube 17th. Right off the bat I had problems with even some "Easy" ones.  July ended with three unfinished ga,es. Now, this is all about memory. You have to remember what tiles you missed, amd where they were. I can't do that in any depth now.  WTFF? 

Mosup says it's sugar.

Starting the New Year, I had a case of flu that lasted the better part of a month.  My daily 10,000 Fitbit steps a day plummeted to 6000.  Then I had what I thought was a torn knee cartilege.  No.  I have arthritiis in both knees.  Sawbones wants to do kneecaps;  No way, not while I can still walk and two Aleve's twice a day keeps them servicable, but  my steps went down to under 5000. 

The poison ivy that turned into contact dermatitis was the killer. I spend the better part of the day watching movies and snacking.   I'm putting on weight which puts me in dangerwarms MoSupof getting Type 2 -- what the hell, I can't think of it (this is in real time)  ...  !Type 2 Diabetes, or worse.  My brain isn't snapping right.

Diabetes is the worse disease you can have because it attacks every part of your body. That prospect scared the hell out of me enopught that I got my harmonica and began building my lung capacity back up(3 pack a day smoker before I quit 12 years ago).  Harmonica playing is only thing that works.  I'm learning Dixie.  It's already paying dividends
rode my bike yesterday.

Today I turned another corner.  After watching Mountain Men for 6 straight hours I was really pumped! Turned  the AC  up to 75° (from 72
°), the better to swaet. Went out to the garage, found my axe, and sharpened it!  Hoo-Rah!   I shot a mouse in the garage too.  I'm back!  Now, where that Eskimo woman I'm supposed to fuck?  Wait ... is that right?

Ack chew ally, I find my failing memory kinda rewarding in a way . . . .

Today at 75 I can watch a movie that I absolutely KNOW I saw just 10 years ago as if for the first time. Recently I've sat and watched early episodes of NCIS and BONES in rerun, knowing full well that I've seen 'em before, but the sexual tension, the snarky dialogue, the character interactions, and especially les denouements are as fresh and entertaining as if I were seeing 'em fresh outta the can.

Ditto for many of the old black & white classics on AMC and TCM. Fortunately, though, I haven't yet forgotten the name of the woman with whom I've shared domicile for over 50 years. Gimme a minnit and I'll come up with it.

W10 is coming out now, but on blogs I've seen a lot of advice not to get it. Many reasons. I have W8.1, and don't like it much.

I also have a disk for W7Pro. Some people on the blogs think W7 is a good way to go, so I'm considering using that. It was never on my current computer, which had W8.1 installed when I got it.

My question is whether I can simply install W7P on my machine, or whether I will lose programs and files when I do it. This fear goes back a few years when, I was told, that's what happens when you put in an OS.

Anyone who has done it know if losing programs and files is a legitimate concern?

Get ClassicShell from here. It fixes many of the annoyances of W8.

Do not go to http://www.classicshell.org. Something different.

"Diabetes is the worse disease you can have because it attacks every part of your body."

WRONG!! If you had to choose an incurable disease, diabetes would surely be the smart choice. It's manageable and, properly managed, you will more likely die WITH it than die FROM it.

I have diabetes type 2, and it isn't a big deal.

When it comes to exercise, my rule-of-thumb is guided by one of my heroes:

Skoonj: the only way to install Win 7 over Win 8 is to do a 'clean' install - which means everything gets wiped out. Plus, if your machine came w/ Win 8 on it, there are probably a dearth of drivers for it under Win 7.

Back up your files. Do you have the installations media (disks) for your programs?

Trick I would try - use a partitioning tool to make an empty 20 gig partition on the hard drive, then install win 7, boot up and see in it works or you can get it to work. This will not affect your Win 8 setup.

Leelu, I was afraid of that. I have Mozy, but to transfer files back and then find all the crap on disks and online that I have here, that's more a career than I want. I may wait a while, then install W10, which I understand doesn't need the clean install.

#####
I've done an install of Windows 10. It has some bugs but I find it a whole lot better than 8.1.

used to be the funniest show on TV. Then the clinton writer took over and it sucked.
 
~
#####
I can agree that the show had gone downhill over the years, but must admit I was shocked by how GOOD it was this last year. The writing had improved so much that I started looking forward to the next show. Give the 2014-2015 season a chance. You might be surprised.

"Sneed's Feed & Seed, formerly Chuck's" was kinda subtle; it took a few minutes to sink in, but now we're still chuckling.

"Sneed's Feed and Seed, formerly Chuck's" sounds like an old Soupy Sales gag.


 
~
#####
"... formerly Chuck's" - based on one of my favorite farmer with a shotgun jokes.

"... and the second guy says, My name is Freddy, I'm here to date Betty, we're going for spaghetti", so the farmer figures he's Ok, and off he goes with daughter #2. The 3rd guy comes to the door and says, "My name is Chuck" ... and the farmer shoots him."

Very educational -- I had no idea "bloodbath" was single word.

Well . . . I'm workin on Milady's birthday card. Each year I put together a multi-page narrative tribute with embedded pics or 'toons. Takes her mind offa the reality that I didn't buy her some trinkets she doesn't need or would just return/exchange anyway.

Usually get some kinda idea 'bout 3 months early, then subconsciously scout around for ideas or quotes to steal and weave into the tapestry . . . put 'em in a folder and let 'em molder.

Decided to go a different route this year and do it all in 4-line rhyming stanzas, basically pentameter.

Got it roughed out; now it'll cure for about a week before I go back in and tighten it up, polish it, and incorporate some appropriate pics.

Looks like this'n'll be around 8 pages, shorter than most, but after all it's poetry, so it SHOULD be more compressed and concise, n'est ce-pas?

Repairing an old love ...    
Triumph Spitfire         








I forget what year Doug M's TR3 is, but thought about him throughout.  Another example of why Edd is my goto guy for car repair help.  If I still did car repairs.  The last one was rebuilding a 1981 small block Chevy  the Mrs. someone drove without oil or water.  Can't make hide nor hair out of these new things.   Here's part one of that Wheeler Dealer in case you're interested.

USMC2841,
Truer words never spoken.
Easy to work on, simple, cheap, plenty of parts suppliers, lots of support groups, plenty of cars still on the road, pleasure to drive (even 6'1" with 13EEE shoes, which won't work in most sports cars). Reliability is pretty dang good, actually … well, once you get 'em sorted out. Drove mine from NC to Seattle, LA, San Antonio and back a few years ago. No issues. For old Limeycars, reliability numbers usually include the spares you can carry times your ability to install them at the side of the road.
Yeah, our motto should be:
Every owner a mechanic. Every spouse a saint.
Cogito, ergo zoom.

Back in the middle 70's I owned a 1969 Mk. 3 with a 4 speed
manual, a 1,300 cc 4 with dual SU side draught carbs, 2-1/2
turn lock to lock rack and pinion steering and independent
rear suspension. It was bright yellow with black interior, black
removable hard top and a black roll bar. It was one of the only
cars I truly loved to drive!
