I am a geek. A Windows geek to be exact. I do all things computer. I do like outdoor activities; camping, fishing, riding my hawg, etc. but I always gravitate back to the computer. In fact, between work, the biz and other stuff, if I am not on the 'puter for 14 - 16 hours a day, I feel deprived!

Health Care

HERE'S THE REASON...

WHY OUR HEALTH CARE COSTS ARE SO HIGH!!!

Bubba McCoy

Bubba had shingles.

Those of us who spend much time in a doctor's office should appreciate this! Doesn't it seem more and more that physicians are running their practices like an assembly line?

Here's what happened to Bubba:

Bubba walked into a doctor's office and the receptionist asked him what he had. Bubba said: 'Shingles.' So she wrote down his name, address, medical insurance number and told him to have a seat.

Fifteen minutes later a nurse's aide came out and asked Bubba what he had. Bubba said, 'Shingles' So she wrote down his height, weight, a complete medical history and told Bubba to wait in the examining room.

A half hour later a nurse came in and asked Bubba what he had. Bubba said, 'Shingles..' So the nurse gave Bubba a blood test, a blood pressure test, an electrocardiogram, and told Bubba to take off all his clothes and wait for the doctor.

An hour later the doctor came in and found Bubba sitting patiently in the nude and asked Bubba what he had.

Bubba said, 'Shingles.'

The doctor asked, 'Where?'

Bubba said, 'Outside on the truck. Where do you want me to unload 'em??'

HOPE THIS MAKES YOU LAUGH OUT LOUD LIKE I DID... THESE DAYS WE NEED ALL THE LAUGHS WE CAN GET

Bunch a Bull!

Here is a good story sent to me by another friend...

DA BULLS

My wife and I went to the Liberty County agricultural show and one of the first exhibits we stopped at was the breeding bulls. We went up to the first pen and there was a sign attached that said,

' This bull mated 50 times last year. '

Bull1

My wife playfully nudged me in the ribs... Smiled and said, 'He mated 50 times last year, that's almost once a week.'

We walked to the second pen which had a sign attached that said,

' This bull mated 150 times last year. '

Bull2

My wife gave me a healthy jab and said, 'WOW!! That's more than twice a week ! ...You could learn a lot from him.'

We walked to the third pen and it had a sign attached that said, in capital letters,

' THIS BULL MATED 365 TIMES LAST YEAR! '

Bull3

My wife was so excited that her elbow nearly broke my ribs, and said,
'That's once a day ...You could REALLY learn something from this one.'

I looked at her and said, 'Go over and ask him if it was with the same old cow.'

OUCH

My condition has been upgraded from critical to stable and I should eventually make a full recovery.

Thanks Nica! Laughing

Aaaaahhhhhh.... WHEW!

Frustration_Relief

Now I can finally put my kit away for a couple weeks. I am DONE with my ejumication for this term... I admit that I am happy I did not shave my beard yesterday morning because I only passed by the hair on my chinny chin chin! It was a pretty difficult test - not because of the content but because of the age of the test (12 to 15 years... a LOT of technology has happened in that time) and some issues with how the testing software posed the questions. Fortunately for those who follow, the new UPDATED version is being released in April so folks won't have to suffer through this one for much longer... WHEW!!! Glad that is DONE! Time to revert to redneck-geekdom!!! Cool

 

I forgot to add my CIW certs last time in my frustration, so here is my new list with my new JavaScript one included!!!

 

CIW_Associate web_foundations_assoc javascript_sp A_Certified NetworkCertified

I think I will be off the certification track for a year or so now, on to more traditional lernin like cyferin and cogitatin...

Reality (doesn't suck)

REALLY IT DOESN'T ALL SUCK!

Okay, I admit that I am a fan of a few reality types of shows. Mostly on Discovery Channel and maybe History Channel. This is a FOX variety. It is pretty fun watching these kids grow and gain skills and compete to be the American Idol.

Last year had some pretty good talent. Crystal Bowersox did not win, BUT, she had some amazing skills as a musical artist.

Here is her first release!

FRUSTRATION!

Well as many of my site visitors probably are aware, I am working on my degree through Western Governor's University. This term has been pretty much computer geekdom term.

I am now A_Certified and NetworkCertified.

I have been studying and studying and working on JavaScripts and doing whatever for my CIW JavaScript Developer certification. Took the test on February 24th and guess what?

I FAILED!!!!
37/50... I needed 38/50 to pass.

FRUSTRATION!!!

Mostly I am embarrassed because I have been using
JavaScript
for years. I admit I was probably a bit over-confident.

Grin and BEAR it.

This comes from an email sent by a friend at work. It is pretty amazing. If you have seen the TV show on the Discovery Channel, "Flying Wild Alaska", this is one of those types of bush stories!

 

Best duct tape story ever...
During a private fly-in fishing excursion into the
Alaskan wilderness, the chartered pilot and fishermen
left a cooler with bait in the plane. And a bear smelled it.
This is what it did to the plane...

The pilot used his radio and had another pilot
bring him two new tires, three cases of duct tape,
and a supply of sheet plastic. He then patched
the plane together, and FLEW IT HOME!

Duct tape. Never leave home without it...
