It Wasn’t My Idea, I Swear . . .

When I asked Jan where she wanted to eat this afternoon while we were out and about with our errands, she looked at me with a big smile and said, ‘Twin Peaks…again.”

I know we just ate there day before yesterday, but who am I to argue with my better half when she wants to eat there again. And since we both had exactly the same thing we had on Tuesday, no new food photos for today.

A while back I talked about the Peacock TV app and how it wasn’t available on the Amazon Fire TV and Fire Stick devices due to contract negotiation problems between Amazon and NBC. Of course you could do like what I did and ‘sideload’ it to be able to use it, but was kind of involved and a PITA.

But now it seems that Amazon and NBC have gotten over their little tiff and made up, so  now the Peacock app is available in native mode on the Fire Stick. So after deleting my sideloaded version I downloaded the new one with no problems, though I did have to set it up and log back in again. Easy Pezy.

While we were on our recent trip I ordered these two metal flamingos for Jan’s Flamboyance.

New Facebook Flamingos

When I ordered them I was happy to see that the all-metal birds were made in the U.S.A. and shipped from California, unlike most of the things sold on Facebook ads. Plus the ad said that would ship within 3 to 5 days.

They lied.

It was a little over two weeks before the birds were shipped, and according to the tracking info, they were shipped via China Post from Fushan, China.

So it will be interesting to see if they are really metal, and as big as they said they were. Especially since the original ad has disappeared from FB, even from my order page, and has been replaced with a completely different one from the same company.

I’ll let you know what shows up.

Run Far. Run Fast. 

Windows 11 is coming soon to (and probably crashing on) a computer near you.

A recent leak revealed the new look and feel, and a probable release date of Fall 2021.


So get ready for a bunch of stuff that no longer works right, or no longer works at all.
