    Recently got a new Asus laptop for gaming. i7 processor, Nvidia grforce gtx 765m graphics card and 16 gigs of RAM.

    Is this what bliss feels like?

    Found fabulous used bookstore...the kind with books piled sideways, crammed into crannies; one to spend a week in! Best, bought a fabulous 675 page book for 15 bucks: The Outlaw Bible of american poetry, edited by Alan Kaufman. It will be the only bible allowed in my home and prominently displayed. If I ever need to swear on one, this be it!

    Have a face-to-face writers' group tonight. This meant reading and critiquing. My eyes are so freakin' tired because I had to do it on hard-copy. Even if I only do a page a day, it's still a Big Deal. And it's not helped by Gary Stu.

    Well, tomorrow I'll be going to that Mobile Writers Guild meeting at a library close to my house. Friday, I'll be barricading myself in my room playing Zelda: Breath of the Wild. So basically today is my last day of boring 'nothing big happening' for this week. Yay!

    Yesterday Twitter locked my account again saying they detected malicious activity. Then when I couldn't supply a mobile phone number, they unfollowed everyone my account was following. Seems one is not a real person unless they own a mobile phone to share the number of. I guess it simplifies their world, having such a narrow perspective of the real world. I told them that the only malicious activity on my account has been them, twice now, destroying months of hard earned networking.

    Being mostly shut in, my land line's remote handset is all I need. I can't justify the cost of a mobile phone only to satisfy Twitter's simpleminded perception of the world. I'm considering not starting over with them.

    My likely last big project is illustrating my book, and my grandson is telling me how I'm doing there. It's actually opportune that I'm near the end of my path. With our ship of state now flying a stars and stripes Jolly Roger, those not as far down the road will likely find themselves with much less, if any, Social Security and Medicaid assistance, despite all they've paid into it. Removing the earnings limit would make Social Security solvent indefinitely (instead of only till 2047), but the rich are hearing none of that in our avaricious world.

    My over the bed table still hasn't arrived. I contacted the manufacture directly, and they told me they have no control over shipping. They deliver their inventory to an Amazon warehouse, and Amazon handles the shipping to customers. They added that delay problems are likely due to a current big disagreement between Amazon and UPS. Just my luck to order it at this time.

    Listen to me complain will you. I've had a wonderful life with friends and loved ones, and more ups and downs to keep things exciting than many will experience. I am especially thankful for my experiences with raw Nature, which keeps me from seeing life only in the artificial human bubble.

    Brings to mind a poetry prompt some might take up: "The color of my love's hair is green, the color of her eyes brilliant blue, ..."

    Live with no excuses and love with no regrets. Wishing you all a wonderful life

    Attempting a workaround, I'm trying to figure out how to get SMS text messages on my iPad, without owning a mobile phone.The only VOIP service Twitter will accept is a Google Voice phone number, but there's a missing link I haven't figured out. Things were so much simpler back on the reservation with only crank phones, and they were a luxury. Another day, another frustration eh. Time for bed.

    You should be able to have a google number point to a landline number. And use it as your Twit number. Google voice will let you use your computer to accept texts.

    I don't have a landline anymore because no one needs both and I have a cell. I also have (and use) a google number. I give everyone my google number.
