aug 13 2016



late last night i got the message that explore was not getting any signal fromt eh donkey camera... so i will go t check that first thing....  or maybe joyce will   would be even better....
*********
.i watched a CNN bit last night on pitching new ideas-- and the topic was uber..
how a pitcher must be enthusiastic and preferably on their feet while pitching....  the concept was interesting  and the pitch worked-  uber has it.---- so  i tried to enter the new world of tech..  at 2am...
  .  from the pitch i was told.....
you go to your computer to sign up
get a "thingie" on your cell phone
poke one button and 
a nice person in a car with no dents will arrive at your door.
and you don't have to pay them money.

seeing as it was 2am, i was hesitant to push any buttons after i gave my name and address..
there seemed to be a "beater car" with other people was the cheap offering
on  up to a black uniformed driver etc....

from registering a person   and all the  card information--to gps your location- mapping the route- estimating pick up time  from cars in the area,  calculating the cost, it was an  interesting intertwining of technologies...

one concept  interested me - among other things was they suggested you could  rent a car and drive all day , and you would still make money.

i have always been interested in   what could i do to make money if i landed in a situation of  being in a strange town  with no visable means of support.- like  standing in a long line-- and then selling my spot to someone who has more money than time was always a possibility.. like the insurance runners who just carry papers to the registry- that might  involve a car...
there was a guy at the entrance to the tunnels in boston who carried 2 tanks on his back- regular or decaf- and had milk,sugar,cups sweetner- on his person....and you held your cup out the window with a dollar. he had a huge business.

from those kind of concepts i always meant to make a million dollars  by  figuring out a monopoly board" life"  game  of rolling the dice and those cards in the middle with good and bad  real life problems things 
you broke your glasses 
you won a car
got arrested for loitering
found a mcdonalds gift certificate
slept thru court appearence
found a steam vent
new house in the suburbs
or go to jail  do not pass go
things like that...

it could be done--just another one of those wierd ideas i will never get around to doing.
BACK to me and uber....
all i did was sign up- not sure what for, but i  now live in fear that that phone of mine now has a new option  along with butt dialing- it can call uber.
********
then for nightime news  entertainment was mr trump- he must have a huge staff of creative  people to think up  controversial things to say to get free news coverage---
i did hear something.... did i hear correctly that he  went to new york military acadamy?  ( not to be confused with west point)  that was right down the road (9w) from where i lived in cornwall ny...  i knew a guy who went there back in the 1950's .   it was one of those "maybe the military atmosphere will control him" situations...  
i also wonder  why anyone would want to be president when  so many get shot at... i forget... was it 10 out of 44?
*****
steve ( meatcutter steve) was here over night so is here first thing... i have no idea what is in store for the day....
******
wellllllll.... we will get to see what the new pup has in his stool today because megan gave him all wormer last night
and won't that be exciting????
