Got myself an iPad Mini 4. Loving this thing. Got it pretty much set up exactly the way I want it. Even got a cool Zagg keyboard case for it. Makes typing on it, like writing this blog post quite easy. I never was one for those onscreen keyboards on tablets and the like. I must say, it’s been a long time since I ran with an iOS device, and with iOS 10, this thing will pretty much do anything I want it to do. It’s stable as all hell, too. I’d venture to say iOS 10 will pretty much even run underwater.

Check out my current home screen:


I might, just might have to give the iPhone a go when my contract is up next year. Although, I do really love my Samsung Galaxy Note 5 running Android 7.0.

Mobile devices are fun.
This is why I am in I.T.

It’s because of stuff like this.

Is Al Gore ever going to go away?  He’s like the Clintons.  They all just won’t go away.  Has anyone ever asked Al Gore how much money he’s made off his global warming climate change scam?   If not, why the hell not?  He’s the biggest fraud when it comes to science.  Why, oh why does anyone take this quack seriously?

From The Washington Examiner:

by Fred Palmer – Washington Examiner

Al Gore wants to reverse modernity and save the world from itself through an elimination of its fossil-fuel-based energy system. During the final week of April, his newly created Energy Transitions Commission released a document setting forth a fool’s-errand pathway to “decarbonize” the world’s energy system.

If this sounds familiar, it is. Gore’s plan features a new, sophisticated, and expensive public-relations campaign, but it’s all based on his views on carbon dioxide first broached in his 1992 book Earth in the Balance, which he reissued in 2000 for his failed presidential campaign. The subsequent efforts made by Gore during the past 25 years have transformed little from their genesis, and he remains as tragically wrong today as he was when he first surfaced as an opponent of everything linked to carbon-dioxide.

If you scroll through the verbiage surrounding the document, you will find the core policy recommendation is a massive, punishing carbon tax. Gore would start the tax at $50 per ton, which would increase to $100 per ton over time, essentially destroying the market for continued robust development of the world’s fossil-fuel base. Our economic growth and personal well-being depends on robust fossil-fuel use, so Gore’s plan would destroy these as well.

But, don’t worry! The all-in estimated cost to re-engineer humanity is only a mere $15 trillion—enough money to give every man, woman, and child in the United States more than $46,000.

Al Gore has been demonizing fossil fuels and attempting to marginalize all those involved in the traditional energy sector since 1988, the year the climate-change movement was rolled out in Washington, D.C., which happened to correspond with a nationwide heatwave and with Yellowstone in flames. Ever since, Gore’s pathway to political power and personal riches has been a successful one, to be sure, but his multi-trillion-dollar effort today is his most sophisticated effort to date. Unfortunately for him, it will also fail, because what he’s selling in his “new” proposal is bad for the people being asked to embrace it.

I really don’t get what all of the hoo-haw is all about when it comes to birthdays and adults. Kids are one thing, grown ups, well, that’s another. I think next year, instead of having everyone at home for a meal my mom cooks for us all, I’ll request we all meet somewhere to eat instead. Why should my mom make a meal for all of us. Shouldn’t have to do that kind of thing if you ask me. I know, she’ll say that she wanted to do it, but I digress.
 
 Well, enough about that. Big changes happened this year. Some I will get into later when I feel the time is right; while other things I will not get into because it’s just nobody’s business except my own.
 
 That’s all.

In bed, reading blogs on my smartphone when I feel this tickle on my arm. I saw it, brushed it off, thinking it was a spider. No big deal, right? Go back to reading blogs when I feel the same tickle on my arm 5 minutes later. Looked closer, didn’t recognize it at first, then I realize the sumbitch is a tick. Brushed it onto the bed and picked it up in Kleenex. Tried to crush it to death, no dice. It just won’t die. Bugger is moving like nothing phased it. 

Opened up the Kleenex and examined it more closely. It’s a tick. Little bastard was going to try to feed on me. Took it into the bathroom and brushed it off the Kleenex, straight into the commode for it’s last breath, straight to a watery grave.

Just damn I hate those things.

Hilarious. Damn hilarious.

Via Twitter…

Take a stab as to who you think this looks like.

Ok fine.  It’s Jack Nicholson.

Read this morning Ford may be bringing back the Ranger compact pickup.  Damn I loved mine.  Seriously, a fun ride.  I always boo’d Ford for getting rid of it in 2011.  Bad move if you ask me.

Oh man, the one vehicle I have a fondness for.  I had two Ford Rangers.  One was a 1999, the other was a 2001.  Rock solid.  I especially loved the 2001 model.  Had everything.  Had the power to boot.  The thing was governed, you see.  Wouldn’t do faster than 90 MPH, even though the engine was capable of much more.  Was too powerful for the small frame of the truck I suppose, but was still an absolute blast to drive.

If Ford really does bring the Ranger back, I am all in.  One of these days, anyway.

This is cool, cool JuJu.
