Slow Start, With A Nice Jump

When I came home Monday, I was surprised to see our trash cans out on the street. Garbage Man comes  on Monday, I thought it was Tuesday. That’s the last thing I remember, now it’s Thursday and it’s almost the weekend after a short, fast week.

This weekend is my wifes 40th birthday party!

I got a new Android browser. It’s called Apus. Seems good!

That’s all for today, ciao  

Firefox For Android Is The Worst Browser

I’ve had it, I’m getting rid of Firefox on my tablet. The only reason I have it is because it was recommended by my financial instution, but I don’t think they realized I was talking about Android.

The original title of this post was “Selling My Car”. I wanted to include a screenshot of my advertisement online, but after 45 minutes of wrestling with Fireox, I was still unable to view the ad. Unresponsive. You click a link and you can’t tell if you’ve clicked it or not. Nothing happens. Click again, nothing. finally something does happen but you don’t know what it was, all of a sudden you’re off in outer space. So you click the “back ” button. Nothing. You can’t even tell you presssed it. So you press it again. Nothing. All of a sudden you’re off in space again, other end of the galaxy. This app is unworthy of the Firefox name.

Do you have Android? What browser do you use?

Damn Dam

I’ve been following on the news about the Orosville dam problem. imagine if the spillway had failed within the first hour, as initially predicted? Almost 200,000 people have beev evacuated.

From what I gather, the main spillway is in the picture above, the auxilary spillway is the dirt part to the left of that.  And it’s all washing away.

Here’s a pic of flooded city called Riverbend Park, below the dam. If the spillway had failed as expected, this would have been hit by a 30 meter wall of water.

And more rain is expected.

Good luck to everybody there!

Searching For A Topic

Monday here. Hopefully I’ll  get my car or scooter back this week, no more carpooling with the wife, making me late and her early.

I’ve been looking for a topic for today, In the news, a dam spillway is expected to fail in Norhtern California, many thousands have been exacuated. Read it HERE.

And the benefits of eating more ginger, HERE is the article.

Also a girl in Italy who sent a sex video to some friends comitted suicide, her friends shared it and shared it, and there were T shirts with the girls picture on it and it went quite viral. It’s a pity, I think sex should be fun, uninhibited and playful, not something taboo like in so many societies. HERE.

It was a pretty nice weekend, Saturday we went to a party which was very nice. I left the party and went to a CIMRA meeting (Cayman Islands Motorcycle Riders Association) for a couple of hours and then went back to the party. I dont think I was even missed.

Sunday, I went and rode my bicycle to the beach. It was pretty windy at the beach I went to and I didn’t swim, but riding was nice.

AND now it’s Monday. Bah humbug! Have a good week!

Vengeful Cars

I took my car to get the exhaust fixed. When I got it back it was messed up. Bad alternator is the verdict. So now my scooter and car are in the shop, and I’m riding with the wife.

Every car I’ve ever had, when I decide to sell it, the car breaks down, like they know and are punishing me for my disloyalty.Maybe I’ll rent a car.

Almost Friday! Have a good day!

Six Hour Work Days!

I wish!

Sweden has been experimenting with six-hour days, with workers getting the chance to work fewer hours on full pay, but now the most high-profile two-year trial has ended – has it all been too good to be true?
Read the Article HERE!

Many people don’t know that it was Henry Ford of Ford Motors who originated the 5 day, 40 hour work week. I’ve always said if I could go back in time and talk to him, I’d say “ten hour days, four days a week. Take my word for it, I’m a time traveller.”

Six hour days would be nice! How about four eight hour days a week? Weekends are too short!

Happy Hump Day!
