Searching for the perfect computer– First leap.

I know I can’t afford the perfect computer, but I like to imagine the best computer, and what I could do with it.  I seriously think I could challenge any computer.

That being said, I look at the basics of my 3 models of computers. Because what is perfect for one, may be horrible for another. 

I used to recommend PC’s to new  customers. But my experience in working with older people adapting to new computer access is that, in reality 100 percent of what they do can be done on a tablet.

A 10.1 or bigger screen with nice keyboards for using in PC mode.

Now there are more models like the Surface pro from Microsoft. ( which I really really like ) but I like a sturdier keyboard when I and using big screen when editing photo’s. So I prefer a keyboard like the Logitech 480  bluetooth keyboard. It allows you to switch to three different Blue tooth devices so that you can use a bigger keyboard for type on your Phone and/or tablet when at your base location. Or just pull it out of the computer bag. It is battery operated. Now the Surface pro and others have their own keyboards, which I do not find to be totally adequate. But it’s speed in tablet mode running windows 10 is quite remarkable. I see the Seahawks use them on the sidelines all the time, so I figure they can take some abuse.

New things to say

  • It shuldnt matter, but it does.
  • your skin is a layer upon layer of your future.
  • A dreary midnight thomb
  • my life is focused 2 feet away my mind is everywhere.

My Dream of AmericA

A just and caring government that is fiscally constrained in non-short termed emergency expenses such as weather or  riots.

A government that provides basic routine or emergency medical care that does not exceed 9% of a citizens total income for the year.  A patient may purchase extended coverage from additive insurance programs that would be competitive amongst themselves.

I think that everyone should pay a 17% income tax.

The only Federal Tax breaks for corporations would be a percentage of U.S. Based Employees income taxes.

Corporations will be taxed extra for, heavy emissions, area infrastructure security needs.

I believe that every child in the USA and it’s territories should have access to the Internet, at home or in school.

Every school district needs to maintain a federally mandated digital communications.

Starting in first grade, every person that enters first grade is issued a super table and that will contain the learning material.

Total community based internet connectivity  for free with competitive  providers.

Learning tools to help others make their own websites.

The 7 year itch.

This year on April 19th, I acknowledge my 7th year of living with another mans heart pumping inside my body. My first few years were quite extreme as I tried to recapture what I thought I had lost.
In the last few years it seems that I have become more or less apathetic in my struggle to retain my glory days.

I no longer feel the need to conquer my fears, or feel that I owe anybody anything. Yet,  I do on both accounts.

Much like my TV hero Capt. James Tiberius Kirk, I feel I must die alone, for I took nothing into this world, and I leave it with nothing. Along the way, I know I have made bad people rich, and good people suffer. I know I have worshiped the green monster called money. I have sought to rectify the evil thinking that permeates our society. Yet, all is as it is. It will no change for, or because of me.

Having been reduced to a begging soul, not for a religious savior, but a world where I need not be afraid to die because I cannot afford this months live sustaining medicines. Is it because of the lack of medicine. No. It is because of the people of the United States who are afraid of their voice. Afraid of the bankers and pharma whores. Afraid of a psycho in the White house. Afraid of Police and courts who only want to punish and not provide means to a healthy life.

This is the source of my apathy.

I cannot, change the mind of a person that believes what the media spews. I cannot change the mind of a corrupt government official who believe that the party they belong to is always right.

The ignorance of the unchallenging are the meek that inherit the earth. Good luck with that.

Friend Zoned

Image result for friend zoned

I don’t know if a woman gets this situation, but I am speaking from  one guys side of what I think we feel and or otherwise ignore when it comes to being Friend Zoned.

First let us define friend zoned. As a guy, I think It means you had and interest in a sexual relationship with a woman/girl/whatever. However the relationshipee is not as accommodating as the relationshipor wants. They, unlike you, want to just be


You start out, usually inebriated, and some woman is in an amorous mood, and you stupidly think it is all about you.

It is not

It is them wanting to establish a relationship, but they don’t approach it in a logical manner, thus they either wind up with some scumbag that is going to  do-em and dump-em. (if you are in the real friend zone, you will hear all about this.) Or, you will go off into a very predictable relationship advancement mode that I will explain later when I have analyzed thoroughly. In other words. Never.

So let us elucidate the structure of the friend zone:

It starts with a passionate kiss that sends your toes tingling. Then it is the quick grab, squeeze, feel under the table. No rejection there so you think you have a shot. THEN you buy her another two or three drinks. Mistake number one.  If you pick her up at the bar, and she keeps wanting you to buy drinks…. you are not getting personal with her tonight. If you do, you will be disappointed. Trust me.  However, this can also be a great chance to get to know her, but be careful because sometimes this can get very, very, very weird. Have your wingman ready to pull you off and shove you out the door.  Many times I have been saved.  Thank you Benton, Dean, Doug, Mark, Don, Norm….  It goes on.

2nd Try.

This is surprisingly a very fluid moment. I hate to say it, but few go to the real relationship world. Most of the 2nd rounder’s are either the exile to the friend zone, or some very kick-ass-sex and never-want-to-talk-to-you-again developments.

3rd shot.

If you have gotten this far it can mean many  things.
You really like her and want to keep trying. (12% success rate.)

You think she is fun and by hanging wither her you will find other women. (success rate 42%)

Caution. This is a real test of the friend zone and if you find the woman who has declared you her man friend getting really negative to the woman you try to choose and explain to her, you should realize she has disrupted the force of the friend zone and you need to be either cautious or callus. I have used both techniques, and truthfully found that If I have been FZ’s I no longer really give a shit and find the callous approach has actually got me some anger lay’s so it is all in what you are looking for I guess.

Now if you have not taken her off Facebook, twitter and whatever, and have not removed her from your phone or blocked her calls, you still enjoy hanging around with and can have her pay for her drinks and introduce you to some decent chic’s.

NOW you are in the REAL FRIEND ZONE. 

OMG ( did I just type that?), this is heaven for a guy. I cannot describe the feeling of having a sister you can get drunk and hit on, knowing nothing will happen and will push you off when you are all hands or actually introduce to her nymph friend and you smile about it, either way.

That IS the ultimate female friend. You are a guy so no matter what, you still want to have sex with them. However, when you start not thinking about sex with them, then you can actually develop a good give and take. I think there is nothing better than a true female “friend”, but it usually takes a lot longer than either side will allow.

A final thought

Every once in awhile a friend becomes an FWB. That is Friends With Benefits. You can call each other and setup a drink meet and maybe have a physical night together. No worries, no regrets. It is kind of rare but, it is why guys develop a harem of gals. Usually 2 or 3 that kind of shuffle in and out of their lives. It is actually a very stable relationship if all parties realize it IS about friendship.

There are a lot of advantages to this system, but ownership, childhood indoctrination and religious dominion keep these types of relationships at-bay.

So, you have been zoned. Accept it for what it is, but you need to start treating the person that zoned you as a buddy/pal/compadre, you will find most of the women cannot even handle that and it is adios… So be it.



Dating Sites.

This is a story made for contraction.

Male: 58
Occupation: Digital production and technical consulting.

To get laid. If in the process I find a woman that can do that, and still want to hang with… great.

Oh, come on what the hell did you expect me to say? I don’t lie about this shit. Oh wait, yea I do, but that is to the women. My sexual mores were formed in the late 70’s and 80’s when birth control was new, and AID’s were a half decade away.  Free love, good weed (not really) and awesome in depth conversations. (ok really stupid Ideas) were our days.

My early 20’s were fun. I got to be a DJ and then got to travel all over the US working with people that lived in the towns that we would travel to and stay in. So dating was….Hi, you’re cute, I am from out of town. Do you want to come up to my motel and  snort coke, smoke weed, drink and or fuck?   Never kept stats, but I am sure the snorting coke got them up to the room better than the rest.

So here we are, a 22yr attempt at a lifetime marriage… I don’t consider it a loss, I consider it a……. tie.

to be continued.
