HOW TO LIVE ON THE CHEAP! BUT! GOOD!

I will be updating this as time goes on.

From being on my own. For three years. I should know something!

From going to “Aldi’ to “GFS” (Gordon Food Service”) And all things in-between! There are many different ways.

I go to GFS to buy my favorites! Food service trays of lasagna to mac & cheese, ravioli, so much more. This helps me stretch my food supply until the next month.

What I do with the food service cans of “chef-boy-ardee’s” ravioli. I take the sauce and use it when making other kinds of pasta.

When? And where possible! Always! Buy in bulk!

What lots of people do not know is that! You can reduce your electric bill dramatically!

Simply be unplugging what items you are not using at the time. An electrician informed me about it. IT WORKS! You will see the difference in about 2-3 months! Provided you stick to it!

I am not a “coupon clipper!” I think it’s a waste of time! Provided you know where the good deals are? Even if in those places that accept coupons. You are that much further ahead.

Not many of us. Know that! When you have bottles of body wash, shampoo dish soap and then some. What I do is. Turn the bottles upside down. It may seem silly! But! In due time, you will see a difference. You will not be going to the store as much. And buying the same thing because of it.

In buying anything that hs the energy star on it. Do so. That is where you can really save! Only if! You have to! Do not go to these other grocery stores like Save-a-lot and others. Only if necessary.

Cell phones! This! Is one close to everyone’s heart! Always!!!! Look for the best talk, text, data rates you can find. Even if you have to buy the phone. Depending on. The data you use. It’s still the best way to go. Some have extras! It just takes the time to find it.

I need to point out! You still need “Landline” service. Because! If the power goes out. Or! The power grid goes down! What do you have left? Cell phones last while the battery does! Then what?

During the “cold months!” Is the heat still enough? Try “space heaters”. Even the low priced one’s work. Weatherproofing! Using plastic sheets can work as well. Do not! Buying something because it says it’s for covering the windows and doors. What it says! Vs. What it really does? Two different things.

TBC!

The Slants Win Supreme Court Battle Over Band’s Name In Trademark Dispute : The Two-Way : NPR

The case could have a broad impact on how the First Amendment is applied in other trademark cases.

Why? Can’t we accept free speech? As it is? “FREE SPEECH?”

The patient office was scared “SHITLESS” about “who do/would we offend?

There is a split! Between free speech and crossing the invisible line of “political correctness”.

This decision will have such implications. There will be many cases of: “what line(s) do we cross?” VS. “who do we offend?”

this will not be the first! Or the last! to come.

ABOUT, ABUSE, Uncategorized, WORKPLACE, PROBLEMS,

I AM JUST GLAD IT’S ALL OVER!

From al the shit! I have encountered!

From bosses! To co-workers! And any/all in-between!

Bosses who are drunk with power. To “wannabe bosses” who try to gain the upper hand of their department. You know who you are! Attitudes, mentalities, screwballs! the list is endless!

Towards the end! There was one guy! Who was an abusive narcissist! He would pick on me, call me names to try to get me to quit! Did not work! This was a place that somehow? knew who to hire!

The people there. We’re either. Mama’s boys/Daddies girls! Aka! Spoiled rotten overgrown kids!! Who always got their ways! The woman who was in charge of HR! Made sure the women were taken care of. While the men! We’re treated as slaves to the women.

Way too much to loose sleep over!

HIGH-TECH, Uncategorized

WOULD MY PARENTS LIKE/LOVE/EMBRACE! HIGH TECH DEVICES?

My mom? Perhaps! Not! My dad? Oh yes!!!!!!

I can remember when handheld calculators came out. She did not like them at all. She said it would create “weak minds!”

My dad! On the other hand! would love it! Because in later years. They were separated. Not the separated that we have all come to know.  Separated as in? they slept in separate beds. Because of extenuating circumstances.

In later years! He would find porn magazines in the trash. And! You know what would go on from there. I would not!  Separate him from the PC at all! But he would die! With a smile on his face!

Mom? With a little coaxing! She would!

BEER, BRAND,, Uncategorized

MY FAVORITE TOPIC! “BEER(S)!”

It always takes those little things! To get me going!

I am watching the movie “Smokey And the Bandit” I seen a guy drinking a “Budweiser” beer.

Now! What got me thinking was? “Who said Budweiser is the best domestic beer?”

Budweiser did not ad blitz until about the late 60’s. Even today! I still love their ads! But! Who said it is? I didn’t!

My first time at trying Hanneken! Was when the late singer Jim Croce was photographed with it for what was his last album “I got a name” It was inside the album cover. When I bought it. IDK? That it also made Hanneken dark as well. Even to this day! You still! Need a bottle opener to remove the cap!

I had the original Löwenbräu from Germany. And the American version of it too! Not the same as the one from Germany. that one is a little stronger. As I recall! They too! Also made a dark beer.

There was one beer I did like! Schlitz Lite! It was the best-tasting beer and it was cheap (you don’t find that or even Schlitz beer itself.).

Blatz was not bad either it too was cheap but a good beer.

In the midwest! there was another good beer.

Stroh’s at that time. It was “fire brewed”. But! When Pabst’s  bought it! And found out the “Fire brewing” process took too long! They dropped it! Today! It’s as nasty tasting as ever!

When I tried “Tecate” it too! Was nasty! Separated at birth?

The worst? “Honey brown beer! Beer with honey? To the same!

I had? Duke, Schmidt’s, Schaffer, Carling Black Label, Iron City beer (worst tasting now! Then when it was brewed here!),  Bud dry! Not bad! But! You hardly see it anywhere.

What beer(s) have tried/had?

AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO BELIEVES IN THIS? PT.1 ?

The reason I put a “?” at the end is that. I may come up with other things.

 

I would like to start out! With what I believe in.

I know! There are guys out there who believe in being the “HEAD” of the relationship! Right from the very beginning. I do not! You may ask why?

I believe that! The woman does know more than perhaps! The man does. But! It also depends on? the upbringing, education, what she has learned as she was growing up.

I believe! In general, relationships. Are two-way street! Sorry guys!!!!!

I know! What my job is to her. Not only to love unconditionally, be there for her, support, honor, pay attention to her, talk to her and for her to talk to me, to uplift her, put a smile on her face, make her laugh, be there in all her ups, downs, and in-betweens, to give her a voice in my world and our relationship, and then some!

For the guys! It all depends on how men are brought up as well. To some guys! I think they encounter more crap then do some women.

There are parents who not understand or comprehend! What we (YES! I am talking about us men & women!) went through. As kids. We do not “carbon copy” onto our kids as well. This! Is just one part of why the world is the shape that it is in!

We as a human race fail to understand is? I would say? Almost from the beginning of time. Our first parents did not know the how to’s of raising kids. So they played it by ear, by the seat of the pants style. Keep in mind! Life and times were much less complicated than it is today.

I have always believed! When we have kids of our own. We should give them a better life than what we had!

MOVIES, CLASSIC, LIFE & TIMES, B & W,, Uncategorized

I KNOW! IT’S A CLASSIC! BUT! IT’S STILL HOLLYWOOD TO ME!

Even though! I was born in the “BABYBOOMER” generation.

The classic movies of old to me. Holds something very interesting. The life and times of that day. The styles, interior/exterior of buildings.

The one thing! That I do find interesting is? The cigarette! Was more than likely hired than that of the actors themselves! There were not that many movies that did not have/use the “COFFIN TACKER!”

The black and white movies! I think it gave us a way of using our imagination. Thinking, wondering what it would look like if I lived in that time? I can only imagine.

In those times! The writing was excellent! There were some that? Passable to crappy! It may have been just something to throw onto the movie screen. And see if it makes money?

In all! Watching old movies! It does give us a bit of a glimpse! Into the past.
