Diabetes does not make give you license to use the N-word.

This story just caught me by surprise. That being said, it’s still a sickening story. Last Friday, there was a girls’ high school basketball game in Oklahoma. The contest between Midwest City and Norman High was a key matchup in the girls’ Class 6A quarterfinals. The national anthem played. And some of the girls on…

Innovera’s quality and product control needs a LOT of work.

An update. Last Monday, the toner cartridge on my Dell e515dw printer ran out of toner. I contacted my personal office supply store, W.B. Mason, and they grabbed a compatible Innovera refurbished toner cartridge and shipped it to me. The cartridge arrived on Tuesday. The box said Dell, but the product inside said Brother. And…

The brother that messed up my Tuesday.

Last year, I purchased a replacement printer for my home computer. It was a Dell printer that had scanning and photocopying capabilities, you know, like someone in an office might use. Last Monday morning, while printing something out, my Dell printer beeped that the toner cartridge was empty. So I did what everyone else does…

Hey scammers – Cross-eyed Johnson says HI!

I wasn’t expecting the scammers to call so quickly. But I WAS expecting the scammers. Sure enough, phone call. Looks like a local 518 call on my caller ID. But I know the scammers can spoof those things. For all I know, they could post a caller ID as 867-5309, and the person who answers…

Bank of America’s “fast ATM’s” versus “slow ATM’s” is just an excuse for them.

I have a credit card with Bank of America, and every month I need to make a payment on that credit card. For argument’s sake, we’ll call the payment an apple. My billing cycle with Bank of America goes from the first of the month to the first of the month, so my scheduled payment…

Ah, Spectrum, you never cease.

I was working on a project yesterday, in which I needed a solid, well-defined communicative link between myself and an online entity. Normally these projects are easy to accomplish and complete. This time, however, it seemed that there was a massive lag. And that lag was taking me longer to complete the online task. Ugh.…

Wow, Spectrum … just straight-up wow.

It’s time for a little normalcy in my world. Not much normalcy, but I’ll take what I can get. The National Football League has games scheduled.  Sunday afternoon contests.  And if nothing else, I can sit and watch several games at once by putting my television on the NFL RedZone channel, a channel I’ve subscribed…

Scammers and swindlers don’t care about COVID-19

In the past week, I’ve had two attempts of someone trying to compromise my existence.  One was an e-mail phishing scam; the other was a credit card breach. I shall explain. A few days ago, i received this e-mail out of the blue.  I’ve changed a few things in the e-mail for security reasons, but…

The assholes of COVID-19

Understand this.  I have a MAJOR love and support for those who are doing their part to help fight COVID-19.  I’ve donated to charities that bring food to doctors and nurses and first responders who are working double shifts and rescuing as many people as they possibly can during this horrific pandemic.  I support those…

Columbia outerwear si, Hobby Lobby no

When this world gets back to normal … I’m going to resume my art and craft and hobby excursions.  I need to. And when I want my artwork framed, I’ll go to Arlene’s Art Supplies on Fuller Road.  Or I’ll use JoAnn Fabric at the old Northway Mall.  Or I’ll frequent one of the two…
