Welcome to 1938. 😡😥😡

I am not an alarmist, nor a fearmonger, nor a doomsayer. I am a realist, a pragmatist, a scientist, a logician. Yet, I can see “the writing on the wall”. I saw it over twenty years ago. Very few believed me. Maybe now more will believe me. Please read the following article and judge for yourself. Thank you.


Too Angry To Accomplish Anything Useful Today. 😣

I am starting to see businesses that are requiring the wearing of masks. According to CDC guidelines, I should not have to wear one. Sprint refused to serve me until they gave me a mask to wear. I. Am. Absolutely. Livid. If I did not need their service, I would have told them to go screw themselves. When asked, they hid behind “corporate policy”. I told them that they were violating my rights and I will be calling corporate about it. I say, boycott all businesses that require their customers to wear masks. 😣😠

Did accomplish some worthwhile tasks.

I am now at 681 sources and 1129 pages total on The Introduction manuscript.

Today has gone from the rudiculous to the sublime.

Found out that The Orville will be moving to Hulu for season 3. Star Trek: Picard is already going to be on CBS All-Access (which is a rather oxymoronic name, considering “All” cannot “Access” it unless they pay).

That aside, being retired is not as simple as one might think. Especially for me, who has always felt that I had to accomplish things.

Balance is going to have to be the key. I was just reaching the point at which I could save a little each month. Now that will have to go for ST: Picard. We knew it was going to be on pay cbs anyway. But The Orville? That really shocked me when Seth made the excuse that because the production is more involved and the special effects are more complex, that Fox would not let them wait until 2020 to get season three ready. But Hulu will. They don’t care about schedules. So Seth just skips over to Hulu, not caring that part of his fanbase will not have access. Has he sold out? Maybe. Do I care? You really do not want to hear my retort. 😠

Anyway, I am making progress on Circle of Logres: Encyclopædia Arthuriana. Fairly soon, in the next few months, a Kickstarter campaign will be set up and coordinated by a trusted colleague. She wants to be sure that the project gets the funding that it deserves.

Don’t forget to visit http://www.CircleOfLogres.com/

But do NOT use Firefox until they fix the bug in their browser that jumbles numbers and letters within outlines. I have sent them a bug report, but have yet to hear back from anyone there. In the meanwhile …

See you next time, true believers!

Excalibur!! 😎

Please boycott Taco Bell.

I have reported my local Taco Bell to corporate. They locked their doors during business hours. The only way to get in was to wait until someone left. Upon entering, one is told that the wait will be 10 minutes. Which was a lie. My one burrito took them 16 minutes to get my order ready for me. Another custoner who had already ordered before me had been waiting 45 minutes. And, no, they were not that busy. This particular Taco Bell location has had problems on and off for quite some time. But it has never been anything like this. As I sat and attempted to eat my burrito, at least 10 people were standing outside, waiting to get in. At that point, there was only the one person inside the store who had already been waiting 45 minutes for her order. So I took it upon myself to open the door. All of those entering the store were summarily turned away. This is no way to run a business. I have since called corporate and lodged a formal complaint. I was very detailed and precise concerning the chain of events. I will never go back to this particular Taco Bell, ever again. I was a long-time customer. I am not that anymore. This particular store has had its share of issues (mostly staffing related), but one does NOT lock the doors during regular business hours, and then turn away customers who are able to enter the store. I honestly hope that they close down this particular Taco Bell. It is the principle of the matter that is at stake. May you all have a great day. 😀
