10-21-2017 Snippets

Hey you all! I know I haven’t blogged anything in a very long time, the last time I blogged was last month on 28th in September about the people takes a knee in sports along with my opinion on it and you can find it here. I noticed that I am not as motivated to blog this year and last year as well since in the end of last year was when I reduced my activity in blogging due to a few reasons. One of these reasons was that I am aging, and my body isn’t what it was used to be so it’s a bit hard on me especially with disabilities I have. The combination of severe disabilities and the aging isn’t a good thing, it is painful. I know, it’s life and all that but with disabilities or illness while aging is not fun. While I am not blogging, most of the times I am usually either watching tons of television shows on streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, HBO and Starz so at least I am entertained. Mentally, I am doing good though and physically is what limits me in my activities now. Every time I tried to write an article, I would be already exhausted and so would be my body which can be frustrating at times, so I decided to find a method where I could at least keep writing an article because I love news or media industries – they are my passion. But now I can at least get an article going thanks to Microsoft’s OneNote, every time I found something interesting or thought of something I would open the OneNote and make a draft of different articles so that I can only write for each topics that I have on my list instead of writing the entire article on same day when my list of topics were getting too long. Definitely saved my energy, so that I wouldn’t exhaust myself while being already exhausted as much as I would if I am writing an article in one day instead of writing what I need or want for each topics then close the application as it has auto-saving feature which is a plus for me.

4-1-2017 Tidbits

It seems that the time has flown on, yesterday it seems as if it is still in the late winter like in February and now it is the first day of the April! I cannot believe how fast the new year 2017 is going already, maybe it is mainly because I have been very busy that I barely pay attention to the calendar and it passed by me. I remember last year in summer that the year of 2016 were going too fast, that we were already nearing Christmas and I said that I felt everything somehow rushed so now it is 2017 I am saying the same thing except that we are getting closer to summer in a hurry. I am sure by now that through several articles I have written last year especially around in the fall that I was looking forward to the winter because I am a winter person, I am a biggest fan of the winter because I never can stand the heat temperature that summer throws at me in the summer and I am not one of these many people who says that they cannot wait for the summer then they cannot wait for the winter. Not making up its mind, I always sticks with that I cannot wait for the winter for several years now because I am not in particular fan of summer for over a decade and the winter has already disappeared since we are heading for the spring so I miss the winter dearly already even though that the winter have just left us. While the winter is my favorite season, I am also fan of the spring and fall but the most favorite season is the winter because I like cold or cool temperature over the scorching heat temperature that I am not looking forward to when the summer arrives. Anyway, I hope that all of you have done fine lately, I know I haven’t really blog for more than a month or two especially for a tidbits article but besides being busy there are a few of things that consumes my time every day and every night that I would rather not to share the details about them as they are private matters but here I am with at least a tidbits article for all of you to read.

Wal-Mart Today Pickup Sucks!

I had hard finding a TV shows DVD that was released on the 6th of this month, September which that was two days ago as when I sent my mother to Wal-Mart to get me the TV show DVD and she couldn’t find it anywhere at the Wal-Mart here even though on their website says they are in stocked. Even inside at the Wal-Mart, it said that it has three in stock and we had employees looking all over for the TV shows DVD for me but couldn’t find any which this was on the first day of the release and then the next day I sent my mother back there to see if there were any in stock but there weren’t so my mother asked one of their employee again then the employee had the supervisor to search for it to double-check that the employee didn’t miss anything. Of course the supervisor said that they couldn’t find it, they have said that even though it said it has three in stock but couldn’t find any and said that it could means that three of them were stolen. The TV shows DVD that I have been tirelessly searching for is The Flash Season two, I must have that TV shows DVD as it is my favorite comic’s character of all the time along with Green Arrow and Batman. Nonetheless after three attempts to try to get the TV shows DVD at Wal-Mart, I had no such luck but on the Wal-Mart website said that they has some in stock and that if I am to order The Flash season two online that I would pick it up on today which is their new feature along with shippingpass which is almost same as Amazon Primewhere you can get your item in two days at one fee every year. Since Wal-Mart online said that it has some in stock, after few failed attempts to get The Flash season 2 DVD so of course I decided that I immediately buy it as it said it is in stock and that I would be picking it up today within’ four hours. Excited about that. So when I ordered, it stated that my today pickup of The Flash season 2 DVD would be ready in no more than four hours so I timed it and wait for four hours to pass by so I could head over to the Wal-Mart here to pick up The Flash season 2 DVD for once of all. It said that I would be picking up at 7:47pm today on September 8th, so I was looking forward to that confirmation email because you must have a confirmation paper to let them know that it is you who ordered it and for them to give your item which is a common thing as a proof that you purchased it.

Donation and Gifts

So as we know that a few websites or blogs who have a donation button or gifts wish list service such as Amazon where they can list things that they would like to have and anybody can send them a gift by buying something from their wish list. A service such as Amazon, it is already set up where you would pick anything from their wish list that they would like to have then pay for them and Amazon will ship these things that you bought from their wish list to them without revealing their shipping address or your shipping address as well along with any sensitive information such as billing information so it’s a great feature that Amazon has to offer for anyone who would like to make a wish list for somebody else to buy them as a gift to them. Now not many but some websites and bloggers puts the donation button where you can donate any funds that you wish to them through PayPal, PayPal is secured as well like Amazon as they never share any sensitive information to anybody that you send a donation or gift to them as they only show your name to let them know who the donation or gift were coming from although I believe that they have anonymous option but I am not sure of that because I have not looked into it yet.

Should I get Hulu?!

Hulu Logo

As of lately I have watched several television shows on Netflix such as The Walking Dead, Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practices, House M.D., Gotham, Arrow, S.H.I.E.L.D and few of other popular name of shows which they are the television shows that I pretty much watch on daily basis through Netflix streaming video on mostly my huge 4K smart television on the wall. While I have the appreciation for Netflix to give me something to watch that I wasn’t able to watch through standard cable due to difference in my schedules because every time one of my favorite television shows comes on I am never available or have any free time to just sit back and watch them but I have a bit of problem with Netflix which is that Netflix only carry a year old season of every new television shows like The Walking Dead, Gotham, Arrow, S.H.I.E.L.D. and others. Some of you know that I am probably one of some person who is very impatient and never liked to wait for something before I could get which in this case to be able to watch a new episode after it have been aired through the standard cable. Lately I am running out of episodes for several television shows that I am a big fan of such as The Walking Dead which Netflix released fifth season last weekend I believe and ever since the fifth season was released I already almost finished watching the entire fifth season so of course I am going to be wanting more episodes to watch.

Amazon and their new smartphone.

Amazon Fire PhoneThere is something that most of the people doesn’t know about Amazon especially their history when Amazon was launched, originally the Amazon was meant to be books online store where everyone can buy books online and or buy books digitally (e-books) online. Amazon was launched in July 1994 as an online bookstore for a few years then they made some of the decisions that they want to expand themselves more than just an online bookstore so they converted the Amazon company into a new company that sells everything such as DVD, CD, Furniture, video games, mp3 and video streaming, software, foods, apparel, electronics, toys, jewelry and several more instead of online bookstores on Amazon. Amazon was becoming the like of Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Target, and few of others but Amazon wants to turn the business in even larger than any popular stores such as Wal-Mart, Target, K-Mart and few of others so they have decided to turn the Amazon business that not only sell everything but to make their own products for everyone too and Amazon is not going to stop from going further, expanding themselves even larger than what Amazon is today which is very interesting because Amazon is becoming a business where there is no competitors that could go up against Amazon themselves and that is because there is no other Amazon at the moment and probably never will but I cannot say that because we never know if Amazon will ever have a competitor in the future but for now there is no competitor.
