Thanks for staying subscribed!


Elsa is Now Allie and Is Adopted!



Our foster dog Elsa (now renamed Allie) found her forever home with Kristin and her family.  She now lives in Battle Creek Michigan with her Husky brother, 2 kids and a loving Mom and Dad.  She has a BIG back yard to play in and a nice park to go for walks and sniff everything in site.

We miss her around here, but it is nice to be back down to just 2 crazy beagles for a while.

Have a great life Allie!!

 


Hindenburg Journalist and Beagles



I’m trying out a new piece of recording software called Hindenburg Journalist that I got on sale today.

I also talk about getting my foster beagle Elsa up for adoption today on the Midwest BREW site ( Elsa’s Profile ). Do you want to take a beagle home with you? 🙂


Why Total a Perfectly Good Car? – MDW254



I had a little adventure with my Wife’s car a while back and put some small dents and scratches in it. We had full coverage insurance on the car so the insurance company decided to total it. Doesn’t make any sense to me so I bought it back from the insurance company.

I talk about my way of buying and owning cars which is a bit different then the normal I suppose. 🙂

This episode is both Episode 61 of Geek of the North and Episode 254 of Mike Dell’s World Podcast.


What is the point?



Looking at my Facebook and Twitter steams lately, I’m coming to some conclusions.  (Yes, I know FB and Twitter are not the best place to see the world through, but a TON of people do so I’m going with it). I think the 2 major parties fans are like football fans.  No matter what the team does, they are for it blindly following the party and they feel as long as their TEAM won, everything is OK.   If not, all hell breaks loose.   If the President has that much of a effect on your life, you are doing something wrong. 

Let me say up front that I am very happy that Hillary Clinton is not our President.  It has 100% to do with HER and not President Trump.  She’s very arrogant, dishonest and treats people badly such as the Military and Secret service.  When the cameras are off, it’s well documented that she is a total bitch to people.

Just because I’m happy Trump won the election, does not mean I get to defend everything he does.  (As my Liberal friends would want me to do).  ALL I’m saying is he was ever so slightly better than her.   I will not defend what Trump does if we get into a discussion about it. 

Trump is the legitimately elected President of the United States.  The Electoral College IS the law of the land and that is how the rules are.  It does not matter one tiny bit that he lost the popular vote.  That isn’t how the system works.  Deal with it or Change it, but shut the fuck up about it!

It does seem funny that the party that says they are tolerant, loving and for the little guy are the ones rioting, marching and spewing hate on social networks. Whenever I post something even SLIGHTLY political (I don’t do it much) I get all my liberal frends asking me to defend some off the wall thing or another.  I am NOT the spokesman for Trump or the Republicans.  Truth be told, I’m more Librarian.  I believe that whatever you do that doesn’t cost me money or take away my rights is fine.  I like to say I’m one of the few people that say that All Gay married couples should be able to defend their pot plants with a gun!

I’m not unfriending many people on Facebook over politics. There have been a few.  There are people I had on my friends list that are just obsessed.   Facebook is not REAL LIFE and I am going to guess NOBODY has ever had their mind changed because of some bullshit Facebook post.
