Still cloudy today, but temps already in the low 40s, and will continue a gentle warm up for a few days. I must remember to get to the well house and turn off the heat lamp too.
I slid off the anti carb bandwagon last night, and had a roast beef sammich, with toasted buns in the fry pan, pickles, slice of real cheese, some mayo and mustard…and fries. My BS was still only 127 this morning. Sometimes, one just has to say “what the heck!”
Still, was a nice change from the drudgery of the same thing, day after day.
The kid ended up calling in yesterday, instead of leading me to believe that they had closed due to road conditions; no, huh uh, it was likely too icy for her to make the 50 mile round trip on the icy roads, that continued to degrade during the day.
My Linux version, Mint 19.3, Tricia, is end of life in April, meaning no more support. I see no alternative except dumping Mint altogether, and going with Ubuntu or Debian, as long as I can find a 32 bit OS…seems everything is shifting to 64 bit these days.
I’ll likely not find another deal like this notebook for $400, without an OS that I got in 2014. Most reliable computer I ever had.
This time of the month is time for me to order my measly allotment of OTC meds from United Healthcare…and of course, they are out of what I needed most, which is so fucking typical. They have gone from (two years ago) being able to order $90 per quarter, with little or no restrictions on amounts, with ample variety to choose from in many categories.
Last year, their stock depleted by at least half, and this year it’s $35 per month, and they are pretty much out of what I need most. This is one of those deals that one has to “use it or lose it”.
So tired of being manipulated by the big corporations.
