"The President said he was going to run America like his businesses. Apparently we have reached the part where he would usually just declare bankruptcy and run away. #TrumpShutdown" -- Jason Kander 2018-01-19

digitalwave @ 12:07 am: Supernatural 13.10 AVI & MP4 Upload...
Hi guys! Working hard to get this up at a decent time. No AVI as of yet but I do have both the MP4 and the MKV versions to post. I'll get them both up now and will post the AVI later when it becomes available.

I liked tonight's episode! I'd love to see more adventures with all of these characters! What'd you guys think? Did you like it, hate it, somewhere in between? Let me know in the comments. I'm looking forward to seeing eveyone's response. :)

The files are almost finished uploading. Once they're done done, just follow the links below and then click to download.

Supernatural 13.10 - Wayward Sisters MP4 File

Supernatural 13.10 - Wayward Sisters MKV File

I posted earlier today with links to all my new eBay stuff. Please, think good thoughts for me that I'm lucky enough for things to sell. We could really use the help right now.

Hope that everyone is doing okay.

*hugs you hard*

digitalwave @ 05:57 pm: Help with medical bills...
Hi Guys! I could really use your help right now. So far we've had additional out of pocket medical bills of $1894 that we've gotten from Lee's GI Bleed and surgery. That's on top of what we already owe them for last year's hospitalization.

I've been working hard to get things posted to eBay. Besides the jewelry and Bath and Body stuff, Lee and I have looked for other things to contribute. So far we've come up with selling his Mikita Drill, my Fossil Blue AM-3099 Quartz Women's Stainless Steel Wristwatch, my pretty Gold Vermiel Pendant, one of Lee's rings and today I added my new coat to the cause. I got it last year and never had the chance to wear it. My older coat is still fine and we need money for bills more than I need a new coat right now. I've tried to put back money for them but with high utility bills I haven't been able too. We've got a whopping $80 in the bank until I can get more stuff sold.

In additional to the extra items from Lee and me, I've posted jewelry, Bath & Body products, toys and some iPhone 6, 6s & 7 Phone Cases from Amber to my online store the last few days. There'll be a lot more to come, including my starting to sell what's left of my comic collection. Here's the link to see what I've got so far:

http://stores.ebay.com/Barbaras-Essentials

If you see anything you'd like, but don't like using eBay, just let me know, we can figure out what postage will be then add it on. I can do checks but would prefer PayPal if possible. My PayPal addy is bstaton @ iglou.com, without the spaces. Also, if you could help me spread the word about my having new stuff up for sale, I'd really appreciate it.

Lee just got home so I'm going to close for now to cook dinner. I'll be back on later to post the new Supernatural episode tonight. Yay, the long wait for new episodes is finally over! :)

*hugs*

"CONTROVERSIAL IDEA: there are enough geniuses in the world that we don't need to coddle the ones who espouse bigotry and hatred." -- EricaJoy to The World (@EricaJoy), 2017-12-14

Ugh. you really don't need to send 43,076 bytes of CSS and table directives to communicate a brief ad 1,665 characters long with a 576 character stock footer. (Call that about half a page, in all.) Note that this does not include the verbose email message heder, just the message body. Skimming all of that code to try to spot the 3% that was te actual meant-for-human-eyes part ... well, it failed, so I resorted to banging on it with a text editor to find the actual message buried in that thousand lines of uselessness (and only then discovering that it was neither the expected subscription information nor interesting news, just an ad for something I don't care about).

I'm not saying this is unusual. That it's not unusual just makes it more absurd.

Best answer: just $%#*ing skip HTML email and send the text that says what you want to say. Acceptable answer: send messages as MIME type "multipart/alternative" and include a plaintext version (which my mail reader will show me by default) so I can at least find the content of the message in a glance. But really, 45 kB to send a paragraph? <eyeroll> But there's no chance the organizations that send these sorts of messages will reform their habits, so I'll just tell my spam filter to junk 'em, on the basis that even when they do say something interesting I'll never find the interesting text among the 97% cruft, so throwing the messages away unread won't be a significant loss.

HTML email has its uses. I have written messages that wanted the kind of structure that HTML was the most reasonable way to apply. (Once something mathy, another time something with insertions, deletions, and annotations distinguished from original text I was marking up.) But a paragraph -- or two or three -- of ordinary, straightforward text, is not a feat that requires HTML to accomplish.

"How would they manage if they didn't have servants, minions, etc., at their beck and call? Could they mess up boiling water if they tried to cook a Kraft Macaroni and Cheese Dinner? Or be unable to figure out which is the hot water and which is the cold water on the washing machine? Or find their way anywhere without chauffeurs, guides, etc.?

"Before his election, George Washington was a surveyor in what was then wilderness, doing the complicated mathematical work necessary to make straight lines on a map correspond to the undulations of countryside. John Adams was an attorney; he defended the British soldiers accused of murder in the Boston Massacre because he believed everyone deserved a good defense. More recently, Harry Truman was a haberdasher -- he could hand-tailor and fit a good men's suit, and was always stylish and perfectly well dressed -- and Dwight D. Eisenhower was a farmer and a general, who understood strategy, supply lines, and outthinking the Nazis. John Kennedy, when in the Navy and his PT boat was destroyed, got the sailors on the boat to an island, found ways for them to survive, and sent coconuts with messages on them of their location out to help people find them. Lyndon Johnson was a small-town Texas attorney without a pedigree. Jimmy Carter was a peanut farmer (and still is a peanut farmer, as well as a house builder.)

"Whereas the current crop couldn't cross Fifth Avenue without limousines equipped with military-grade navigation systems."

"I understand that you have an economic system in America known as Capitalism. Through this economic system you have been able to do wonders. You have become the richest nation in the world, and you have built up the greatest system of production that history has ever known. All of this is marvelous, but Americans, there is the danger that you will misuse your Capitalism. I still contend that money can be the root of all evil. It can cause one to live a life of gross materialism. I am afraid that many among you are more concerned about making a living than making a life. You are prone to judge the success of your profession by the index of your salary and the size of the wheel base on your automobile, rather than the quality of your service to humanity.

"The misuse of Capitalism can also lead to tragic exploitation. This has so often happened in your nation. They tell me that one tenth of one percent of the population controls more than forty percent of the wealth. Oh America, how often have you taken necessities from the masses to give luxuries to the classes. If you are to be a truly Christian nation you must solve this problem. You cannot solve the problem by turning to communism, for communism is based on an ethical relativism and a metaphysical materialism that no Christian can accept. You can work within the framework of democracy to bring about a better distribution of wealth. You can use your powerful economic resources to wipe poverty from the face of the earth. God never intended for one group of people to live in superfluous inordinate wealth, while others live in abject deadening poverty. God intends for all of his children to have the basic necessities of life, and He has left in this universe "enough and to spare" for that purpose. So I call upon you to bridge the gulf between abject poverty and superfluous wealth."

[On Mr. Trump's new challenge coin...]

"Overall, the coin looks like the type of flashy souvenir that Trump would've sold in his casinos' gift shops -- assuming those casinos were still open.

"Moammar Gadhafi may have had his gold gun and Saddam Hussein boasted a gold toilet-paper dispenser, but Trump's flashy gold coin would make them and other dictators green with envy. Apparently, MAGA stands for 'Make America Gaudy Again.'

[...]

"No doubt Trump supporters will love this new Trumpian coin. But to me this coin is like Trump: a bad penny that's an unwelcome, worthless knockoff of the original -- that we can't seem to avoid."

This is the beautiful tribute Lee wrote regarding the loss of our amazing friend, Mike Parks this week to Stomach Cancer:

Lee's Tribute to Mike

Mike, and Danya, have always shown us what a difference true love, caring and compassion can mean in our lives. He worked tirelessly to make this world a better place. When he found out his diagnosis he and Danya set out to pack as much life as they could into his last months. Everything from a magical trip to Chicago with friends of ours in the Fall to working to make sure the cat colonies he supported would still have care after he was gone.

They, thankfully, achieved that goal. He, Danya and their friends got approval to set up a 501(c) (3) Corp called Felines in Need. What they can raise through the website, and Facebook page, will go toward food, supplies and medical needs for the ferals for years to come. If you'd like to learn more, or even contribute, here's the link to their website:

Felines in Need

Mike will NEVER be forgotten, not by any of us who loved him or by any of the many lives he touched over the years. His smile lit up a room, his hands effortlessly went from caring for homeless cats, to sculpting amazing works of art to creating beautiful music on his guitar. One thing I know I will always cherish is that he gave the best darned hugs in the known Galaxy.

As far as on the homefront, we're still hanging in there. Lee was finally able to get back to work this week. Complications from his incision, and a nasty stomach bug, held him back for a while but he's finally on the mend.

Medical bills are still pouring in. Besides the $1200 out of pocket we already knew about we got another bill from the hospital yesterday for $694.00. I wish I could believe that's everything but, I know better.

With everything going on I haven't been able to keep up with getting things posted for sale but that has to change. Besides the jewelry and Bath and Body stuff, Lee and I have been looking for stuff to contribute to the cause. So far we've come up with selling his nice Mikita Drill, it's a cordless Driver Drill, Model # 621 3D. It includes everything, case, Drill, Charger, Cordless Emergency Light and a less than two year old Lithium Battery to power everything. He used it for Model work and home projects so it's been lightly used and is in great shape. I'm going to try and sell my Fossil Blue AM-3099 Quartz Women's Stainless Steel Wristwatch. It's still in like new condition and its battery was just replaced last year. Also, I've got two really pretty Solid Sterling Silver Carved rings from Lee that came from Mexico. One is a size 9 the other is size 9.5. Here are links to pictures of everything if you'd like to take a peek:

1) Mikita Cordless Driver Drill 621 3D
2) Fossil Blue AM-3099 Quartz Women's Watch
3) 925 STERLING SILVER CARVED Wide Band Animal Ring MEXICO Size 9.5
4) 925 STERLING SILVER CARVED Wide Band Spinner Ring MEXICO Size 9

This is just what we have so far, there will be a lot more. We're kind of drowning here and have to make progress in getting some of these paid.

Thanks, as always, for listening. It always helps more than I can say.

"End of the year Twitter confession: Until recently, I was a conservative. I rolled my eyes at almost all talk of ongoing oppression, systemic racism, sexism and misogyny, microagressions, and any hint that speech could = violence. I considered myself a classical liberal

[...]

"Since meeting the students of @WabashCollege and the MXI, I simply can't be a 'classical liberal' any more. There simply isn't a level playing field, not in terms of race, educational opportunities, economic resources, etc. To act like there is is cruel and self-serving.

[...]

"To end the confession, perhaps too honestly: Only 5 years ago I might have said 'all lives matter'; 'not all men'; 'everything is up for debate'; 'I'm a free speech absolutist'; 'students need to be prepared for the real world'. Now I say 'black lives matter'; 'I believe women'; 'I don't get to debate the existence of others'; 'free speech absolutism benefits the already powerful'; 'marginalised students have already seen more of the real world than I ever will'. That's my paradigm shift."
