Update on Personal Drama

I feel like I need to apologize for not being around lately,

When Life events happens it sometimes creates a domino effect.

Deb and I had two cars that we set to look at and had an appointment with a local Mechanic Shop to look at one. For one of the vehicles, we set in the Ace parking lot for over twenty minutes and no show, then Deb texts the person and the reply was, I am sorry, the car sold yesterday.

OK, so we still had the appointment with the other car to be looked at by the Mechanics for Monday at 4:30 PM. We get home from the no show person, and a half hour later we gt a text from the other person informing us that he sold the car despite we had already had the appointment with the Mechanic to look at said car.

Deb does not curse, but yesterday was the day for it with emotional tears, I even was cursing like a sailor after both those eggs went down the tubes while I am fighting this head cold from hell.

So, back to Craigslist and adds, we find one and left a message, we get a call to inform us they sold within the last half-hour. We find another one and texted the person to inquire if they still had the car. Deb got the reply an hour later of Yes. Deb then asked if we could see the car and no reply until today just about an hour and a half ago.

We still do not have a time set to see the said car for today before the storm comes in later this evening. The last storm brought us 13 inches and over 196 accidents in total. This storm is to be about the same from their preliminary predictions, but with some possible ice as well for both Monday and Tuesday.

While Deb is at Walmart stocking up on provisions because we won’t be able to drive that RWD car at all during Monday or Tuesday.

So about an hour ago, I got a call from my Ex-sister-in-law that lives with my Nephew Keith or the other way around, living arrangments does not matter, the call was filled with cries of worry and desperation. Both Keith and Dee work yet her truck is no longer running, and their other vehicle is being repossessed and no funds to pay the rent that is due on the 4th of December because her paycheck is being attached due to medical bills that her insurance did not cover in the amount of four or five hundred a month if I heard it correctly. Dee called my Brother her Ex and he replied, I’ll talk to you on Monday when I have more time. She called her Mother and Sister and found no comfort there either. But then, what does one expect when one’s Mother is a user as well as a sister.

I believe I am in need of a major vacation from all Drama, the nitwits of our society that say one thing as a virtual handshake and then turn around and do another, the ones that actually use a spray hose to wash a car out, now that was a moron period. That was not even Dumb and Dumber funny.

To all those that live in the Midwest I hope all of you are safe and sound if you do try to travel Please be safe for this storm will have ice in it. For those that will be without electricity, I hope you have backup generators on the ready just in case to keep you and the kiddies warm.

Timing

Sunday Night
Snow spreads from the Colorado High Country into eastern Colorado, western Kansas, western/central/northeast Nebraska, southeast South Dakota, northwest Iowa and far southwest Minnesota.

In addition, some sleet or freezing rain is possible to the east of that snow area from northwest Oklahoma to central Kansas, southeast Nebraska and central Iowa.

Monday-Monday Night
Snow, possibly heavy, continues in parts of the northern and central Plains, including South Dakota, southeast North Dakota, Nebraska, parts of northwest Iowa, central and southern Minnesota and far northwestern Kansas. Mixed wintry precipitation is expected from southeast Nebraska to central Iowa and far southeast Minnesota.

This may lead to a challenging morning commute in Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska. Monday afternoon’s commute may be tricky in Sioux Falls, Omaha, and Minneapolis/St. Paul.

Snow continues Monday night across northern Nebraska, South Dakota, southeast North Dakota, Minnesota, northwest/western Iowa and northern Wisconsin. Some blowing and drifting snow is possible in the Dakotas and Nebraska Monday night.

Travel should be avoided in the areas mentioned above Monday night, including I-35, I-94, I-90 and I-29.

Deb just got home and got a reply back from the person to meet today and told us where. The same place that we looked a Chevy from a previous post I did, FALLACIES OR SCAMS.

Think we will pass on their Lemons they are trying to pawn away.

Happy Thanksgiving

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels.

Salt On Open Wounds

This post is just to update everyone about what has been going on.

Since a post on August 28, 2015, I ALMOST DIED LAST NIGHT! and then the post in September, WHY IS IT GOOD TO HAVE BACKUP PLANS I have provided accounts to the happenings of personal life events.  Today will be no different. Between the two written hyperlinked events above, a car was flooded and destroyed and I having a what I thought would be a future backup plan.

Deb’s Brother-in-law took the challenge of taking the spare engine I had for my Truck and replace it with the current one that blew a rod. We waited and waited, then last weekend we go to Deb’s Sisters house for a family dinner. When arriving at their house, I see my truck not in their garage but on the street. Her wheels were on the road where she is meant to be. Deb and I started to breathe once again from holding our breath for quite some time.

Then when we enter their house, we see Deb’s Brother-in-law sitting on his recliner with a look upon his face. His mouth begins to open and the words begin to fill the air turning what was a breath of fresh air to seeing clouds of doom hovering us once more. “That engine is making a noise too”

After the family dinner, we prepare to leave, Deb and I drive the Truck home, which did fine with no problems, no oil pressure loss and the noise disappeared once the engine was revved up. Half-way home the engine lite came on shining brilliantly. The next day, I take Deb’s OBD and program it to my Truck, Error code P0305 which can be any of six-eight possibilities, the last one on the list being low-compression.

During this time, the Car that Deb is borrowing from her Step-Dad begins to act up. The shift column is preventing the Crown Victoria from starting, We now have to put the shifter in neutral to get the car to start, it won’t be long before the shifter won’t go back into park when shutting the car off.

We drop the Truck off at the Mechanic’s shop so that they can get to it the next day in the afternoon to hook it up to their diagnostic computer.

Yesterday, 10:30 AM get the call from Deb, you can hear the silent tears in her voice, she begins to tell me that the shop told her the engine is shot. This was my rabbit in the hat, the hope against hope.

Deb’s Step-Dad will be taking his Crown Victoria into the shop Thursday so that they can work on getting it fixed.

 

Poodle Attack And What You Need to know

RedLine Have you ever came across this when getting to a certain Website? If so, tread lightly with caution!

Google support will show you this, “Google Chrome knows there are problems with the site’s certificate. Proceed with caution, because someone on your network (like someone sharing your wi-fi connection) might be messing with the website.

Thank You for Your Concern | You Are The Best!

I appreciate all of you that expressed your warm and deepest concerns. Thank you!

Complex Regional Pain SyndromeI did not write the post to generate a pity party, but to let my community and fellow Bloggers know a bit more of me and the pitfalls of living with Complex Reginal Pain Syndrome.  Doctors are still clueless and there is no cure for it. Somedays are ok and some, well, you would just rather have a Root Canal done.

In light of this, I still am trying to rejoin the workforce and have a few apps out. We will see!

Before I was diagnosed with this condition. I do admit I used to make light of people that claimed they had such pain to the ones that had Fibromyalgia which is completely different from CRPS. This post will be to bring some awareness about this CRPS.

Coping with CRPSWearing clothing can be a pain in the ass too if someone has this condition. Sensitivity to temperature changes as well.

When I wear certain shirts they can feel like needles pricking the skin or rough sandpaper rubbing back and forth.  So, I don’t care what people may think of me for the way I dress these days, I wear clothing items that feel comfortable.  If you wish to view this video, here is the link, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6YPKAycw7MQ this is a 36-minute video from, Sharon Weiner, RSDSA Board of Directors and President of Living with RSDS, Inc. and Barby Ingle, Power of Pain Foundation share techniques and ways to live better despite having CRPS.

This link is from a 2008 CNN broadcast where the Doctor says, they don’t know much about it. This story is about a 14-year-old girl that got bit by a spider in her leg that caused her to obtain this freak of nature condition. The Mother was distraught and put her daughter into a comma. I don’t think I would go through anything that drastic. The video is 6 minutes and 13 seconds. They also show how the pain stared in one area and moved to other regions.

If you have heard of a talk show called the Doctors Show, then you may have seen this about a woman who has it in her leg, red and swollen. Video length: 4:41

What Blogging Should Be About

I have  written several articles on blogging over the past couple of weeks. Two of the prominent ones are, HOW TO PROMOTE YOUR BLOG! and BUSINESS OR HOBBY | HOW TO BECOME A FAMOUS BLOGGER.

So today, I thought I would highlight the most important ones with my own unique spin or flare if you will.  So, let’s get to it! The one item that I will put on top of all is,

don’t be a selfish stuck-up pretentious so and so. Blogging should be a fun, sharing resources, networking together providing a relaxed inviting environment. Have you ever had that one supervisor or Manager that reminded you of the above statement? Don’t be that person.

  1. www.doz.com
    http://www.doz.com

    Content! Let’s face it this is the king of them all. This should shine like a polished diamond. Another analogy would be like eating one of Chef Gordan Ramsey’s dishes. That’s how good it has to be. This one piece of the puzzle that makes people want to read more of your writings and keep coming back for more because it tastes so good! As I mentioned in a prior article, quality is better

    thegentlemanfarmer.me
    thegentlemanfarmer.me

    than slinging 10 trash bags at your readers. Do you smell that? Never mind, I just need to take a shower.

  2. About Page! This is another crucial element. If you don’t have one, then start making one.  Just like with eating healthy, don’t be lazy and put it off til the next day. This is the second most important page that people go to. Even on a corporate site people go to the about page to see what they’re about. As humans, we are diverse yet very inquisitive creatures by nature.  Ingredients for a proper About Page.
    • Photo of you. You can’t hide behind the curtain. Face the camera looking into it. In other words, show your pearly whites! Don’t use an image from another person site or a semi-famous person. A secret, anyone can download the image your using, then upload to google images and see who it really belongs to and which site it was used. I am not trying to be sadistic or sarcastic. I am trying to help you avoid pitfalls that can happen when we would rather have our true selves less exposed and avoid feeling vulnerable. As an Introvert, I understand this whole heartedly but I found that even I had to escape the cocoon revealing the face behind the veil.
    • Blog about pageDo not list what you like or what you don’t like on the About Page. In general People don’t care about your likes or dislikes, that’s just the facts and the cold hard truth. leave your personal likes and dislikes for certain content when relevant.
    • Scribe at least your first name, not like the above image and just leaving it at ” I am me” At this point people won’t care if you’re trying to be cute, however, witty is another matter. If you are trying to brand a business identity, then by all means use that name, but remember you still may have to scribe your first name so that individuals can connect with you.
    • The purpose of the Blog, what is it about? What are you offering, what makes yours different than the rest?
  3. Post Regularly: I have read many articles on this subject and found that posting once per month is not going to keep your readers engaged. On the other hand, if you post too often your previous post could end up buried and possibly fade away. It is a balancing act, some suggest six posts per day and others suggest four while some provide advice but no set number of posts. Here 412 viewsis another secret that I will share with you. October 22nd. Why did I get the views of 412? I can only image if I had used the proper tags that day when I published that one. That was the day I announced the Follow to Follow Directory. I provided a value that most everyone wanted. You guy’s kept me busy that day. This was the only post I had to do that day. Just the one.
  4. Character: In an earlier post I mentioned about being honest and open with your readers. Just like a warrior becomes one with his weapon, flowing naturally and gracefully as though watching a beautiful dance, your blog needs to become an extension of your own persona so that readers can relate to you. I will add to this one, show your charm, if you have a swagger about you, don’t be afraid to show it once in a while within your writing.
  5. http://www.amazon.com/How-Win-Friends-Influence-People/dp/0671027034
    http://www.amazon.com/How-Win-Friends-Influence-People/dp/0671027034

    Talk weddings not funerals! This is very important. People don’t like to hear bad news all the time, they like positive thinking, that is why so many of those memes on Facebook gets the likes and the shears. In this book which I read while attending Butte College, there is a passage and a crucial element, That is “don’t talk about yourself, talk about them“. I was younger back then and treated like a lesson from one of the parents, in one ear and out the other. Later on in life, though, I found out the hard way just how true that one statement is. It still holds true to this day. Think about it. If you want to influence and win friends in life and within the Blog community, then learn this lesson. People like to talk about themselves, not you. This is where the mentions and reblogs come into play.

  6. “You only get out of it what you put into it” Simple as that!
  7. Contact Page:  Might be a good idea to have one of these!

Social Media

www.iddnet.com

This is another ingredient that needs to be utilized. When I get to someone’s post and share it, I get the impression that they either do not use Twitter or do not have it connect to their wordPress.

Which ones to use?
