Smartweed

Pictures: Smartweed, a wild flower in KY. This Plant (the leafs) can be use as a food (for flavoring foods) and as medicine for different things. Fun to read about, give it a Google for the read.

Eyes

Pictures: Back to birds 🙂 Today’s birds are Phainopepla. These shots are not the best in the set of that day, but sometimes I like to pick the not so good ones and work them in Photoshop just to see what I can do. Not to bad but they where not the best to start with, I tried 🙂 I love the eyes on these birds.

Bate and switch?

Verizon : Verizon is not giving me the discount that they said they would when I signed up for their data package. They did the first month but not this month, so I called in and the person I talked with took the ten dollars off my bill but did not acknowledge that the discount was on there and now I am wondering if they are eventually not going to give it to me? No matter, I will still keep the deal because I can’t beat it anywhere, however I will keep trying to save my $10 a month if I can.
It was odd how they did that discount. They offered it to many of the folks who first switched from Millenicom to Verizon but then stopped offering to the ones that switch later. I think now they are going to try not to honor it, and if they don’t I have no way to prove that they said they would give it to me. Maybe it’ll work out.

Workout Summary: I am not getting the good mileage I was last year 😦

Data: Checking with Verizon today says I have used over 20 gig of data this month, I have never used that much before. Maybe Verizon counts different from Millenicom?!??! Things are still not right on My Verizon site either and the tech don’t seem to have clue when I call them. Reading on forums tells me other from Millenicom are having the same problems. At any rate here I am at McDonald’s doing my internet stuff. Maybe Verizon should not get me to use to this …. I might be able to give them up all together ❗

A couple or three year ago

Workout Summary:
WORKOUT SUMMARY for JAN 1 – JUN 30 2014
130 workouts
485.08 miles
6.19 days
50086 kCal burned

Needless to say I have really slacked up this summer.

Bird: Another Downy Woodpecker. This Woodpecker is on one of my home made feeders, it is just a piece of wood with a hole drilled in the bottom of it. I then fill the hole with suet which the Woodpeckers and several other birds enjoy eating while hanging upside down 🙂 This feeder also served the purpose of keeping some of the bigger birds away because they are less acrobatic. The area that I lived in was one that had tons of Starlings and they would hog up a feeder of suet in no time at all.

Here I was one day, a couple or three year ago,( I can talk like that if I want to because I am a hillbilly) enjoying the good life. This is a area about 10 miles west of Casa Grande, AZ that is now closed to free boon-docking 😦

Colder last night but better today

More cold: Hopeful it will get better after today. I am ready for some above average temperatures, not that I’m going to get any. Okay, I’ll make do 😦 At least the night’s are going to get above freezing from here on. The best thing of all, is that the days are just great.

Update 12 noon: Ha, it is noon and time for some shorts and a t-shirt! May not be able to set still outside in a t-shirt, but if you’ll moving around it feels fine.

Walk: I want to, but the knees are not happy right now, so if I do it will probably be a short one, we’ll see.

Moving day coming: I will be moving in a day or two(when the notion hits ) but not far. I will be going to Blue Water lake, another one of my favorite sites.

See Out: Hey, I can see outside now that I have washed and cleaned my windows, they had a ton of wet dust on them. Just one of those things you can expect to happen now-and-then here in the southwest. The truck is still a mess.

Passwords: I spent about an hour updating some of my passwords, that where affected by the heartbleed bug. I was going to put a link to some info about heartbleed bug but there is just too much, you’ll have to Google it and pick what you want to read. It is still hard to find out what sites got hit with this, my Lastpass app tells me Google, Yahoo and others are in the mess.
