Kitty Party!

So we welcomed a couple of new arrivals into our home recently, and we're in the trial period phase, just making sure they're a good fit for us. Based on our last experience / waking nightmare, we've become a little ore cautious.

That being said, he and she seem to have adjusted quite well after being barn / golf course cats, and we're doing our best to make them feel welcome.

One thing we did differently this time: two cats! We introduced Croûton (not how we spelled it, but change approved!) to the house while we still had Willow (RIP), and the cohabitation was strenuous at best. Then the Marshmallow debacle (PTSD, ADD, WTF) had us considering getting a little friend for her, but we brought her back to the OHS before we went any further.

These two are siblings, so they may fight, scrap and spar, but so far they seem to keep each other entertained for the most part. Win! We'll have to see how long that lasts...

Looking for...

Many, many years ago, I had a copy of a book about the drug trade, and the ripple effect that surrounded it. It was very in-depth, and the author (authors?) seemed to have an almost supernatural amount of access to law enforcement and criminal sources. There was even a chapter devoted to a hit man who had such powerful hands, the flesh between his thumbs and index fingers "were the size of lemons" (I'm paraphrasing, but the passage really struck me).

Somewhere along the line, I lost the book, but would love to read it again. Problem is, I can't for the life of me seem to track it down. It was probably published back in the mid to late eighties or early nineties, but no amount of Googling has turned it up.

If you're reading this, and you think you know what the novel is called, or who wrote it, please let me know. I would be a very happy reader again!

Samsung Galaxy S4 Lollipop Update FTW!

Just got the update for my phone yesterday, and overall, it's a VERY GOOD THING. However...

Why can't Android figure out how to use my headphones right? I have to go into the Play Store and grab SoundAbout to ensure that my alarm doesn't ring out to the entire back of the bus when I'm heading to / from work. If I don't install SoundAbout, the alarm rings over the headphones AND the phone, which can be somewhat embarrassing.

So, why can't Android resolve this? The issue was there in KitKat as well, and I was hoping it would be fixed by now. Any ideas, anyone?

There's a sucker born every minute

The amount of time I've been trying to get free coffee from Timmy's via their on-line "rollers" is pretty insignificant, in the grand scheme of things, but considering how many points I've got so far, and the fact that I've won a grand total of one coffee by playing tells me I could probably have found something more important to do with those minutes. #YMMV

Big change a comin'

After 8 years of doing the same job (with a few side projects), I'm about to jump with both feet into a new endeavour. I'm not leaving my employer, but my responsibilities will most likely be very different starting on the 29th. I'm definitely looking forward to the new job, but I'm understandably nervous as well. It's a wild new frontier for me.

Change is almost never easy, but if we don't take a risk every now and then, how can we possibly know what we're truly capable of?

Bring on the "tasteful porn"?

TL;DR, but I think we can all agree we'll all be seeing a lot more bewbs on our screens. Or maybe wangs, equal opportunity being what it is these days...

Are there any mobile Trading Card Game apps that would help me understand how they work in the "real world" too?
