I got five of these these 20% off codes as part of the convoluted negotiations that involved me getting a Sony RX100 II (M2) from BuyDig.com last week.

I do NOT need these 5 codes. I actually have a 6th code somewhere and most likely get another next week! Yes, I do a LOT of transactions with BuyDig.com. Plus, if I want $10 off, I will just call and beg for it — and they will give it to me. They know I am a good customer.

So, I will give these 5 codes to you. They told me I could. Friends and family — and anybody who reads this blog, by definition, is a friend.

So IF you want a code just e-mail me. You know how. Hope this helps.


For A FULL Week TDS Telecom Has Been Delivering Alton Internet Customers With 1/2 The Bandwidth!

I have been telling you since Monday. And YOU have NOT done anything.

Check your bandwidth. You will NOT be getting much more than 8.5Mbps. So if you are paying for the 15Mbps service, as I do, you are getting screwed.

I have raised 3 Trouble Tickets. When it is all fixed I will GET a full refund. Of that there will be no doubt or debate. I have got it before and I will get it again. I document all such outages and slowdowns, and just to make sure, RAISE trouble tickets. Then I call up and DEMAND a refund and they know that the law is on my side. SMILE.

So, I suggest you do the same. This is not right, unless you ENJOY being SCREWED by TDS.

Taken with my brand new Sony RX100 II. Second day with it. The Concord, N.H., ‘Burlington Coat Factory’ store. Amazing the visual delights, just in terms of merchandize, in a store like this. A treat if you happen to have a camera in your hand.

Why do this?

Pixelating the nipples just draws attention. IF they were NOT pixelated you would not even have noticed?

BUT WHY?

British tabloids, as I show right below, have been publishing full-frontal topless pictures, the iconic ‘Page 3’, for 44 years!

This is crazy. This is 2015. Why this pretense?


And then there is this from January 22, 2015. Click here for original.
The Sun” still prints its iconic Topless Page 3 girls
as they have done for 44 years.

In that same edition, i.e., today’s, they also had these two stories. So it isn’t as if they don’t go looking for topless/nude stories. I have no problem with that. BUT don’t print the story and pictures and then pixelate the images. There is no need.

Where Have All The Good Manners Gone?

Why people think it is so cool to be so rude these days just amazes me.

And I know I am not the only one that feels this way, though I will grant that it is indeed folks of my vintage, i.e., old folks, that bemoan what has happened to what were basic, natural courtesies of old — in particular saying ‘Please’ and ‘Thank You’.

Saying ‘Thank You‘ and ‘Please‘ costs very little — and I am saying that there is a small cost, in terms of one’s time, Internet bandwidth, stationery and postage etc., just so as to avoid the distraction of someone claiming that there is a cost.

Recently I sent somebody, whose name I will not mention (because I try to be polite 99% of the time), five 8GB USB sticks with about 4GB of photos on each. The USB sticks were for him and 4 others. So how many people do you think THANKED ME for these sticks. Just one (and it wasn’t the one that got all five to begin with) and even that ‘thanks’ was gruff and grudging. WTF? Is it that hard to send an e-mail to say ‘Thank You’.

After considerable thought I have concluded that it is not ignorance, cussedness or forgetfulness. It is a manifestation of deep seated sexaul angst and insecurity. Saying ‘Thank you’ or ‘Please’ makes these people feel vulnerable and exposed. PLEASE prove me wrong. I will Thank YOU for it.

I already talked about, in this female who works for “Landmark Worldwide” who never said ‘Thank You’ after we found her Kindle, in Philadelphia, tracked her down and mailed it to her. How rude?

And this idiot professor from the University of York who feels that he is too special to be polite. I would NOT want him teaching my kids. 

Yes, I come from the school that believes that all adult human behavior is influenced to some extent by a person’s sexual equilibrium.

Yes, of course I am not polite all the time. There are times when I am viciously rude. But that is when I set out to be rude because I feel somebody deserves to be treated as such. Doesn’t happen often BUT if I am displeased with somebody I can be extremely rude. But 99% I do my best to be polite. I use ‘Thank you’ and ‘Please’, incessantly, even if I don’t have to. It costs little to do so and I LIKE saying ‘Thank You’ and ‘Please’!

I get quite a few requests on e-mail with people asking me for documents, Excel spreadsheets, photographs, information or contacts. IF there is no ‘Please’ in the e-mail I just ignore it. That is my first cut. You don’t say ‘Please’ … then I am not going to bother even reading the e-mail.

Thank YOU for your time.
