Winter is coming.

There is nothing that can stop it. Winter is coming, one of my coworkers bought a new snow thrower, another one is running maintenance on their sleds.
FallThe colors are almost done and leaves off the trees. Halloween is around the corner and on its heels Thanksgiving is coming. This year has gone so fast!

What else in new? After some epic overtime and on-call work I have amassed a few bucks that i don’t feel too bad spending frivolously. Maybe upgrade my PC? (no need yet…  Ryzen 7, GTX1060,16GBRAM) A used ATV? (Don’t have the time to use it or the place to store it). Can-Am Spyder? (my overtime was not THAT epic!)

No need for new phone… no need for new laptop/notebook… no need/want for new rifle/gun… Doesn’t happen too often that I have $$ burning a hole in my pocket. But it’s on fire now!!!   LOL



Bastion of bad ideas?

Day two in SF… the state that is a bastion of PC and socialism…

If this is what the American kind of socialism brings, brews up and regurgitates I don’t want anything to do with it. Gas is almost $5/gl. There are dorves of homeless sleeping everywhere and begging. They seem to do their business on the streets without a care in the world.

The city by the bay may have been the star of CA at some point, but that star has lost it’s shine long time ago..

I would agree these poor souls need help. Real help not just handouts. Make them feel valued and give them self worth. I just have no idea how.

Travelling….. to a strange place.

Attending vmworld this week in San Francisco, CA.

I tell you, this place is strange. Staying in a so called 4 star hotel downtown SF, and I would not give this place more than 3 stars. On the way here from the airport that is NOT close by at all saw a good reason why I would not live here. The traffic sucks! and all the people crammed together almost looked like the favelas of Rio.

I have not even mentioned the homeless people…  EVERYWHERE. It’s a problem i’d say. They do their #1’s and #2’s everywhere and there is a distinct odor of urine and feces…. and as I was visibly affected by the sharp smells that to me smelled like a sewer/mixed with some strange pungent smell I was kindly informed by my coworker that is was pot I was smelling.

After he pointed out what it was I can now recognize in the hallway in the hotel…  thankfully not my room.

I mean i guess, why not..  it seems to be legalized here…  and the smell is everywhere in public and when walking close to some greenery one smells the #1 and #2.

Ate at a restaurant called John’s Grill…  EXCELLENT porterhouse steak.
