Curbside Pickup

6 Comments

I’m trying curbside pickup at the local grocery store. I called yesterday to get the scoop on how small town USA curbside pickup works. I’m calling in my order, they will do the best they can, and they will call me back with the total.

The list:

  • Green bell pepper X
  • Cucumber X
  • Bag o carrots X
  • 4 Roma tomatoes X
  • 4 green bananas X
  • Bag of yellow onions X
  • Celery hearts X
  • Bag o apples X
  • 5lbs potatoes X
  • Big jar dill pickles X
  • Jif Crunchy peanut butter C
  • Canned pineapple X
  • Canned pears X
  • Raisins
  • 3 small cans tuna in water X
  • onion soup mix X
  • Bouillon cubes X
  • Bay leaves X
  • Small bags of flour and cornmeal
  • Cooking oil 32oz
  • TP X (I was surprised it was available)
  • SOLO style cups
  • Bug spray
  • Liquid dish detergent X
  • Graham crackers or saltines. X
  • 2 Diet Coke X
  • 2 diet DP X
  • Sharp cheddar X
  • Hoop cheese X
  • 1/2 gallon low-fat milk X
  • Almond milk X
  • Men’s multi vitamins
  • Guinness stout

The items with an “X” are the items that were available. The employees did a great job. It was as safe as possibly. The grand total for this adventure was $88 and change and should feed me for 2 or 3 weeks. When I got home I wiped down some things with a Lysol wipe, others got a soapy bath, and a few others were put in isolation for a week.

All loaded up

Thank you so much for stopping by. I really appreciate the likes and comments. Much love. Stay well. ❤️

Scene 1:

Sitting on a nice sofa in my adopted daughter’s beautiful home. Clothes are becoming clean.

Mardi Gras Bock beer

It is a awesome day in the neighborhood wherever I am. No thanks to me.

Scene 2:

Bath time is coming up. I’m Stinky, not The Brain. However, there is something to be said for World Domination.

Scene 3: Cardiologist visit

BP 130/80

I got the word, I am fit and in excellent shape. Today is not a good day to die.

I also got a heart rate adjustment. It can speed up now.

I guess that was a software update from Pacemaker 1.0 to Pacemaker 1.1. It is a vast improvement!

It Was Close

5 Comments

It was almost an “I’ve fallen and can’t get up” moment earlier.

Ripped lawn chair

Ripped lawn chair

That big ripped out place was supporting my arse. When it ripped my arse went to the concrete. My feet were dangling in the air. I’m sure it was a humorous sight to behold.

Ripped lawn chair
As I attempted to get out of this chair trap, I heard and felt the back rip. Thank God it didn’t totally rip like the seat or I’d fallen backwards possibly hitting my head. These chairs should come with a warning label requiring sitting helments. I could wear my bike helment.
Ripped air rest orange lawn chair

Trying to avoid ripping the back even more, I pressed down harder on the armrests attempting to raise up my arse and get at least one foot on the ground. Fortunately the armrests held and I was able to extract myself from the chair trap.

Just another near death experience to add to the list. Hahahahaha

Samsara and Nirvana

4 Comments

Non duality

When life is good, embrace it, experience it fully.

Death in Paradise

When life is bad, embrace it, experience it fully.

In quantum physics you will understand that nothing exists. So in reality there is no difference between samsara and nirvana, they are one.Wooden Nickel

6. A scientific theorem
Bell’s Theorem
First published Wed Jul 21, 2004; substantive revision Wed Mar 13, 2019
Bell’s Theorem is the collective name for a family of results, all of which involve the derivation, from a condition on probability distributions inspired by considerations of local causality, together with auxiliary assumptions usually thought of as mild side-assumptions, of probabilistic predictions about the results of spatially separated experiments that conflict, for appropriate choices of quantum states and experiments, with quantum mechanical predictions. These probabilistic predictions take the form of inequalities that must be satisfied by correlations derived from any theory satisfying the conditions of the proof, but which are violated, under certain circumstances, by correlations calculated from quantum mechanics. Inequalities of this type are known as Bell inequalities, or sometimes, Bell-type inequalities. Bell’s theorem shows that no theory that satisfies the conditions imposed can reproduce the probabilistic predictions of quantum mechanics under all circumstances.

The principal condition used to derive Bell inequalities is a condition that may be called Bell locality, or factorizability. It is, roughly, the condition that any correlations between distant events be explicable in local terms, as due to states of affairs at the common source of the particles upon which the experiments are performed.”

Bell himself wrote: “If [a hidden variable theory] is local it will not agree with quantum mechanics, and if it agrees with quantum mechanics it will not be local. This is what the theorem says.” John Bell, Speakable and Unspeakable in Quantum Mechanics, Cambridge University Press, 1987, p. 65.

Scene 1:

Wind Creek Casino Valet Parking Area

Lady O: Watching as the valet drives away, she says, “I just don’t trust that young man.”

Lady Y: “Why”.

Lady O: “I don’t know. I just don’t.”

Scene 2:

QOTD: Develop the knack of responding to whatever comes, as it comes. This “…is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. Taking one step through life at a time, giving each step your complete attention and energy, can bring a wondrous new vitality and creativity to all that you do.” -Anjali Love

Scene 3:

When you are not present, when you are living in your head – thinking, brooding, calculating, worrying, making up scenarios, being cunning or clever- you are not present. You are missing life. Slowly, slowly slip out of those moments. Return to NOW.
