December 2019, I broke up with my best friend for the past 20 years. It was the hardest thing I had to do. I spent 5 days and nights in NYC to get some alone time to write the following letter. She didn’t even bother to open it so I’m posting it up on my […]

So I Built a Wooden Scrabble Board

I recently took 3 weeks off from work. They were vacation days that I did not use the previous year so I had to use them or lose them. Being forced to take these three weeks, I didn’t really have anything planned out aside from a quick drive to Portland to visit an old friend. […]

This time courtesy of Joseph Foo out of Brampton Ontario. This jerk buys a phone off me on eBay, a phone that I listed as “For Parts or Not Working”.  Fine and dandy, no problem.  Figure the transaction would go on like the several other transactions I’ve had on eBay selling used phones.  The previous […]

My New XBMC Media Center PC in a Vintage JVC-7200U VCR

I’ve been using a PC as a media player with my TV for almost the past 7 years.  It started with the introduction of Windows XP Media Center, I tried it out and fell in love with it.  I setup a permanent computer dedicated to playing media from my server.  Over time, it’s evolved into […]

I’ve always been told that I should keep my money in a savings account and that’s what I’ve been doing all these years until recently.  I’ve had a change of opinion and dumped all my money into my TFSA and purchased shares in several funds yielding at least 10% annually and the pay monthly.  The […]

Fake Zoosk Profiles

Since some a few people asked for proof of fake Zoosk profiles, I spent some time to do reverse image searches with Google on a number of profiles.  Process was simple, click and drag an image into the Google image search box. I started  with the profiles that I tried to communicate with and got […]

I've finally done it, I'm done with Facebook

Well, not quite yet.  I was hoping to totally shut down my Facebook account but it’s still the the easiest way my long distance friends and family can keep in touch with me.  Everyone else has been blocked.  If they want to chat, call me and if they want to catch up, we can meet […]

It’s no secret I’m single.  I’ve tried out Match.com but that seemed like a scam.  I never received any responses and I cancelled my membership stating that as the reason.  Funny thing happened, I all of the sudden started receiving responses.  I convinced some of the women to communicate outside of the site fearing we […]

So I may have been duped

So this Jiefu Zhang guy said he sent the phone back on Monday… Friday goes by and still no phone.  Guy keeps pestering me about it and asking if it’s arrived.  Now, if I’m reimbursing him the shipping costs, why the hell didn’t he get a tracking number?  I just gave up and refunded him […]

Anyone else hate selling on eBay?  So here’s the story..  I sell refurbished blackberries on eBay, I take old blackberries swap out the housings, make sure everything is working and I list them on eBay.  I cringe every time someone with no feedback wins an auction because more often than not, I’m going to get […]
