From Peter's blog.
Good for a laugh or two ;-)
Yes am still alive and kicking...just been so busy of late I barely have time to hit any of the blogs, let alone update this one.
Rest assured that I hope to be able to slow things down some and be able to hang out here more and do stuff I want to really do.
Oh and I have three words for the recent fun in Afghanistan....'raging dumpster fire'
More soon...watch your 6!
Fry's Electronics is a well-known (on the west coast) electronics and computer outlet. They have had a store here in Vegas since the late 1990's, and I have built several computers from the parts I have purchased from them, as well as a goodly amount of DVDs for my collection.
During the past 3-4 years, the quality of goods available at Fry's had steadily decreased, along with a seeming inability to restock their inventory. Various folks, me included, have figured it was only a matter of time until they finally fold up.
Yesterday morning, it finally happened (from their website):
So it's finally consigned to history. All I can say is that it was fun while it lasted,
Now that the new year is on us, there is some cautious optimism that this one should be better. With old 'Sleepy Joe' about to take over from 'The Donald', it should get interesting on the political front.
On a personal note, I did get my first COVID-19 vaccination this past week. I got the Moderna vaccine, which will require a second shot around the first of next month. Although I have already had been infected and suffered through this crud, it's still a good idea to get the vaccine; if nothing else, it will keep my immunity boosted. As for side effects, the only noticeable one was just pain at the injection side, which at its worst lasted about 2 days, then subsided. Tylenol does help with it, and made the pain manageable.
Looking forward to the weather warming up again, although overall the temps have not been as cold as it had been, no hard freezes so far.
Am so glad this year is almost over, it's just been too much.
Between having COVID-19, trying to work and keep working, plus the usual shenanigans, I just didn't have the chance to really do much with the blog. And to that, I offer my apologies.
Now that the election hijinks are largely over, and despite what's being bandied about in the blogosphere, I don't think it's quite a foregone conclusion on who's won yet...too many loose ends to explain.
Let's hope the next year will be better.
