Update Dec 26 2018

Saw this quick little tip, thought I would share with you folks.

New blog update, so since the last update. Dec 26 2018

Last update was at the start of November, the start of the writing month Nanonano Writes. Well, it started out ok for the first 4 days, then my new laptop, started acting up, then died at ONE Year and a DAY, yes, and a day. So that meant no warranty. No laptop, no updating since doing via a phone is obnoxiouse. O ya, also the laptop, downloaded 4.5 gigs of stuff for updates, without me knowing, while I was updating the WordPress blog. That cost me an additional $20 on top of the laptop repair for data overages costs.

Le Sigh ! insert dramatic sigh here ….

Ok, 3 yrs in a row that November writing month has brought me hardship, so, that was the last one! Dramatic much, well at the same time, family issues, health issues, vehicle broke down and furnace issues. Might not be overdrama but realism, just too much to handle, too much. All on top of mental illness, le sigh, le sob story, but it is true.

Next

Well, will try to keep updating more often, now that I am chaging one of my meds to another, I find myself with more energy as well as a slightly less fuzzy head. I know that most of the readers that signed up, don’t really read anything anymore, so not sure what the point is. I am not sure, but I am also not wishing to vacate and disable the blog either. Sometimes there is feedback from real people and not just trolls.

Luckily, all the majour telecom companies are having some decent cell plans, seeing as that is how I access the internet still, via my phone. So yesterday, the news had a small article on the plans and how they are on sale till the end of the year, so I went from a 7 gig plan at $110 to a 12 gig plan for $85, still not as good as the USA or other parts of the globe, yes globe, bunch of tide pod eating wackos, globe not flat.

New laptop, with another new hardrive, is still missing programs that make writing, comunicating or even watching a movie, easy or fun. Right now, it is very much a wait and see attitude, wait and see if this new laptop, with another new hardrive will last a month or so. Not confident in this ACER junk…

To the nice young lady that sent me an email, and well to be quite honest, I thought it was a troll email of some sort, so my first responce was not so, nice. My apologies. I will try to post some tips on moving to the north for you in the next couple of days. Along with some tips for living in a vehicle or tent in the winter. Hopefully something insulated if it is a tent.

Last Blog Post

Last blog post, is true.

Now this will not be the last ever, just a bit of warning. So Last before……. 

The last blog post that I did post stated that I would be modifying, revamping and posting more. That is and was all true. Right after that post, on my new windows 10 Acer laptop, decided on it’s own to go ahead and download 3.5 gigs of ms update and spyware crap! All this while I updated 3 pages in this blog and changed the title to wild_E (a nickname given, not taken).

Does not sound like much to people who connect via a normal house internet service. I still get Koodos phone internet service with I share with my laptop. ONLY 7 gigs total for the month. Then the next time I connected was to download an app, Google Keep to this new laptop. ANOTHER gig, in background Microsoft bullshit!

These weinerheaded Microsoft arrogant designers deemed, YOU will have almost NO control over Windows past 7, so 10 is even more clunky, wasteful, can’t be even remotely modified from it’s yuppy, guppy software engineering bullshyte wishes. Well wishes can be kisses and come kiss my a$$. What garbage! Even the MS Office I bought wants to download another 3-5 gigs of garbage before I can even fully load it.

WOW… underwhelming customer experience!!!
Microsoft under delivery and overpricing everything since they created themselves !!!!!!

All Ok, whew got that over with. So on with the show!

This blog on WordPress needs updating and layout changes. WordPress does not support this particular theme so for some days trying to figure it out. Remember I used to teach people how to use this, so, I am woefully behind in this new learning curve as well now. Looks as if WordPress has been sold off and is now a more pay per use site. If I want to have a nice looking, workable theme layout (the looks and layout along with modifying ability) I need to pay $5 a month. Can’t and Won’t do that, so today I will try to find the best of the worst free options, download it. Not sure if everything will still be available, to both you or me. I also can’t download and update the site anymore as that is a pay $$$ per use or gone with the retired theme? Not sure, so here is the plan.

  1. Update WordPress theme after this blog post.

  2. Sort out the garbage and revamp what I am able too! Hopefully make the navigation better as well. Looks clunky to me even on the laptop and unusable mostly on the phone. Huge differences as well.

  3. Update on a more regular schedule now that I am out of Hotmail jail.

  4. NaNoNaNo updates regularly. Entered again this year and despite all the computer issues in the last few days, well I am up to about 7.5 k words written. Wooo Me !

  5. Post the work written the next day or so. RUFF IT WILL BE RUFF !!! basic editing, basic spell check, not printed out and worked properly, RUFF work.

  6. NaNo feedback welcomed, Canadian and British spelling, trying to keep to Canadian grammar rules, RUFF, so any help out will be WELCOMED with open arms and most gracious thanks in return, in advance even! Thank you for your future help.

Thanks and stay tuned.
Note: might need to create another blog, so well, here goes.

We Blog Naked

OK did that get your attention? LOL

Well so sometimes I do blog Naked, shock O horror (although I am not nearly as buff as I used to be so don’t peak in the windows..)

After visiting Mexico first then a UN Tour in Cyprus then living in Europe, what is the big deal with Nakedness. If you’re so inclined Sky Clad, in the Buff, As Mother Nature Intended or as in Birthday Clothed, Birthday Suit. Go to the Naturist and Nudist Camps and beaches, all body types, nobody judges you, people get along, they have nothing to hide !

North Americans are so uptight about it that we now have soooo many issues due to something that is natural. Sometimes it is not a mater of being naked just a matter of not getting dressed in a hurry! I tell my dog that I need to put on my fur when she looks at me, too funny.

Now I also blog Naked as I am bearing my Heart and Soul, letting you into my deepest darkest thoughts and fears. I was told that for therapy for PTSD and Depression to be more open, honest and let the deep thoughts and emotions out! Well as evidenced by some of my blog posts in the last little while, I have done just that.

Some say good going, some criticize, some question, some just come and read then leave. Now since I started doing this Naked blogging of the Soul and Spirit, let alone the buff posts, I am much more calm than I was before. For a couple of weeks though, I was pouring out emotions, emotions dripped from my eyes at the slightest thing.

Sometimes Ladies you do not understand that we were told from a young age to close those doors to emotions, put them aside, hide them, lock the door and throw away the key. Too bad, that is why we die earlier I think, plus some other things that I will not get into here, right now. When I opened the doors it was like opening up the huge Barn Doors and everything came out at once, I was overwhelmed overcome by these new flood gates or another way of expressing it would be the Tsunami of emotions that poured out onto everything! Shocking

Re-Blog – Legendary Chris from GrammomsBlog

Re-Blogging this from Grammasblog,
Loving tribute to her Late Husband. This is a moving story full of laughs, introspectives into his life and character as well as some sad moments as well.

Grammomsblog

Today March 2, 2013 marks the 5th year since my soulmate Chris passed away from metastatic Prostate Cancer at 47 years old.  I want to focus my tribute to him this year on his life.  After his funeral held here at home, I received many letters of condolence from friends including alot of cherished memorable stories about his young life.  I’m going to share these with you today.  Remember, that much of these ‘adventures’ took place before I even knew him, so I take no responsibility for his actions (disclaimer, lol).   Enjoy a good laugh – Chris would have wanted it that way.

“Hi everyone. I just thought I would drop a couple of lines for ‘MAC’:   ‘Smitty’ was at the garage the other night and jumped on the subject of Chris known to everyone as ‘Mac’. There were quite a few people who knew him as Chris but when you mentioned Mac…

Blogging Entries and Comments

Hello everyone;

I am new to using WordPress, so there is a learning curve to tackle. Today, I went to the main page for the Dashboard and noticed, Spam Comments. To my surprise, why surprise I did not think I had spam turned on, perhaps it is an opt out feature?

So I looked and there were about 9 comments that the Dashboard had flagged as spam, they do not show up anywhere else, so I will need to figure how to turn it off, and just approve comments. I rather doubt anyone will actually spam this Blog, and if they do they will be banned; their info of spam will be removed so what would be the point. I welcome reasonable questions and comments, even if I do not agree with things or it is a whole new take on the topic that is ok, so long as it is not Rude, Racist or just Nasty it can stay!

Cheers for now,
WildernessReturn
