This made me cry. You have been warned. Thank you nurses. “This is like the flu” smh.
This wave WOW!
Meanwhile in Iceland…
A Hyatt opens and I am there! Photographer Captures The Lives Of People In Yakutia, Where It Gets As Cold As -58 Fahrenheit.
I think we are making the same mistakes we did 100 years ago smh. Instead of just hunkering down for just one last push to really drive the virus down to nominal levels while going all out on vaccinations, instead, we have the States easing virus restrictions despite experts’ warnings. While we are going to have all the vaccines we need here by the end of May. It is a race…And it is surreal I wish I was older!
Don’t jump your lanes ok? Tech Tips to Help Score a Covid-19 Vaccine Appointment at CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens and More.
Based in Michigan? Michigan COVID-19 Vaccine Spotter. I could be posting stupid clickbait shit with shocking videos for the clicks you know…
Things you learn in my blog: 10 trillion coronaviruses weigh less than a raindrop!
As it currently stands, you can see what your new stimulus check will be under the American Rescue Plan using this calculator. I usually do not do this until a specific legislation actually becomes law…because until then EVERYTHING is subject to change!
Speculation is in lately, you may have noticed. When Everyone’s a Genius (A Few Thoughts on Speculation. It is a great read and…be careful out there!
Investing is not the study of finance. It’s the study of how people behave with money. And sometimes those behaviors are absolutely wild.
As mentioned in my previous blog post, Warren Buffett is a giant quote machine: Warren Buffett warned that ‘hot’ stocks fade, joked about his age, and celebrated America in his annual letter. Here are the 10 best quotes.
Maybe I start a TBB SPAC, you in? Anyone Who’s Anyone Has a SPAC Right Now. Like I said, some areas of the market are approaching bleeding levels of insanity. In my long career in this field, I can not believe sometimes the unbelievable inventiveness of some people to come up with ever clever ways to separate people from their money. Do not fall for this crap!
I was advised by a reader to tone down my politics so I do not alienate half of the audience out there. Like I ever did anything strictly for clicks/money here! Been doing my thing here for eight plus years….with only yardstick being: “Is this worth sharing? Will it educate, entertain or inspire”. That’s it.
For some reason, many think I am this hard core Democrat. I can assure you I am not! I am very pragmatic and tend to be floating in the middle. I have voted for Republicans (in local and State races) before if I think they will do a better job than the alternative. And I really respect Republicans who are not Trump sycophant ass kissers and enablers. Like this guy: The Man Who Refused to Bow. Adam Kinzinger says he’ll fight to take his party back from Donald Trump. I really hope the Republican party finds itself away from the current shit it is drowning in. We need a party to be in the opposition to stop the governing one from running wild, it is democracy damn it! But as long as the big lie that the election was stolen is still being so shamelessly insisted on…what do you expect from these brainwashed people so deep into this orange cult! I think the reader who asked me to tone it down politely to help me now thinks I am crazy. It is what it is. It is my blog and I love the fact I can express myself. You do not have to read it, go read a clickbait blog selling you to death daily.
ODDZ & ENDZ
I learned a lot in this article about noise. Sounding the alarm: How noise hurts the heart. Loud road and air traffic has been linked to a greater risk of high blood pressure, heart attacks and strokes. Scientists are uncovering new details about how what you hear stresses the cardiovascular system. Maybe the move away from the cities due to Covid-19 was a good thing but will it last?
I am conflicted here. After 20 years fighting, are we just going to give it back to the Taliban? Last Exit From Afghanistan.
Just discovered this photographer Victor Sukhorukov.

This section is about my
hobby addiction of collecting frequent flyer miles and hotel points since the early 1990’s! Feel free to skip this section and parts of the next one if this is not for you.
Newbies: The worst airline miles to collect are, by far, Delta Skymiles. The worst hotel points to collect are Marriott Bonvoy points. This does not mean you should say no to them. By all means, if you happen to use them just be aware you are not going to get an amazing deal burning them. Most bloggers will not tell you this because…how are they going to sell you Delta and Marriott credit cards?
This was reported by every credit card selling blog in the blogosphere. Because it was a layup to sell more Amex cards. American Express Adds Cell Phone Protection on their Premium Cards (Platinum, Delta). If you make your decision to get an Amex card just because of this, well, what can I say…smh.
Some good thoughts here: These Points Are About to Become More Valuable…
Marriott Bonvoy points suck, do not get Bonvoyed!
RIP eBay Bucks program. This has been sucking for a long time and now it is finally out of its misery by joining a long list of killed programs. Good riddance!
We are now entering BLOG BUZZ, a section for advanced hobbyists and veterans of this fast imploding hobby and also a section where I go on and on about some stuff that happens in my life because it helps me feel better about myself.
I am trying cryotherapy today. I go inside a booth and I get frozen at -169 F. If I don’t come out call 911.
Another client got vaccinated…We are getting there steadily…
I tried to get a retention bonus from US Bank for the Radisson Rewards Visa…and I was offered a lower APR instead, LOL!
And I leave you with this…
