cartoon life: Never again

Never again will I buy a $75 miserable 300 megabyte international data package when a €20 30 day 4 gigabyte SIM card is available. Filed under: comment Tagged: mistake

cartoon life: A retro-future BRT solution cartoon

Man, that one took a while. The idea was percolating since the abandonment of the tunnel option from city council. Back burner and simmer, and an image will arrive from somewhere. A picture of the OddFellows Hall, demolished long ago prompted the retro-future imagery. Then some strange old images of old vehicles and imagined transportation ...

cartoon life: We’re just a village.

People were outraged by a recent pronouncement that London was a village. It hurts because it’s true.I have always said London is a city that just can’t grow up. And that has a lot of subtle meanings. Face it. London is a village. It’s really a whole bunch of villages trying to be a city. ...

cartoon life: A shaggy black dog

This is our childhood dog. His name was Scotty. Who knows why. He makes a number of appearances in my sisters little commemorative memoir and biographical book about her life and childhood adventures in our neighbourhood East of Adelaide in London Ontario. Book and ebooks to come soon. There will be a post about it ...

cartoon life: Shaving time

I probably would have stayed with the same brand. But it’s too difficult to match things up. I have two big brand name handles bought in the last year, because I previously bought blade cartridges that didn’t fit the previous handle I was using. Can’t find that handle. Whenever my daughter comes home from college, ...

cartoon life: How about a transit-run AI self-driving smart car system for #ldnont?

Hmmm, maybe a crazy idea. My retro future fantasy brain on a spree. The city transit service could run a small fleet of AI Smart, small self-driving cars. Electric. We know they’re coming. A kind of car share system managed by a transit authority. You could hire one over the phone or through an app ...

cartoon life: What does this puzzling and outrageous IgG result actually mean?

Working through some confusion with information above my pay grade. Is this in any way an odd or unusual result? What are typical or otherwise ranges for this measure? The biggest difficulty is finding some kind of comparative scale and conversions. The Gamma Dynacre blood test results show an IgG of 160 U/ml for Casein. I can find ...

cartoon life: Some foods I just can’t abide any longer

  Counselling Tolerance takes on a whole new meaning   Extensive list of allergies from the Gamma-Dynacare tests. Casein (milk, cheese, eggs), soft wheat, Corn, Oats….. Vanilla, Flax, Oranges, Mussels, Pea, some beans. Barley, Malt… Peanut butter, Walnuts… Starting dairy free today. Have to bring my glasses everywhere to read labels. No cheese. A staple. ...

cartoon life: Really it is no solution at all.

Google+, otherwise quite good, is broken on mobile devices, where I used it. I had been, consequently, otherwise distracted by a mobile app called Plag. This post earned nearly 5,000 shares. Whereas this extreme, Swiftian, despairing and evil idea gained 180 shares and earned a lot of outrage and engagement. Filed under: comment, political Tagged: Despair ...

cartoon life: Harper promises

Stephen Harper promises Honesty, Integrity, Transarency. Wonderful background of pasty pale unhappy old white people. http://flip.it/xxBka and a recap of his betrayals. Filed under: comment, political Tagged: Air Quotes

cartoon life: The CPC: sycophants or manipulators?

Copyright free to use Something I can’t figure out, is that if the CPC can track down one teen girl from her Facebook page, and eject her from a Conservative rally, because she wore a Liberal pin in the Facebook photo, that they couldn’t vet the history of potential candidates who pee in clients coffee ...

cartoon life: Technology: ups and downs

   I scooped this from someone’s Tumblr post, and lost the link. Credit is due. But anyway, I thought that that remarkable downturn in civilian and military deaths was interesting. Technology and medical advances are responsible. More and more victims survive and survive with wounds, damage and handicaps where previously they would have died. No ...

cartoon life: Saving an iPad screen from Crazy Glue

  Richard says, “Just doin’ my job!”   Some time in the last month I used a tube of Crazy Glue for a quick repair. Somehow during that event, I managed to glue my fingers together. The tube spurted out an excess of glue, missing the intended target and covering my fingers. I had a ...

cartoon life: Stephen Harper Kills YouTube

You know what, I get it that YouTube will run ads and targeted ads is a clever algorithm. But I’m avoiding this service recently.  The political negative attack ads on behalf of Harper and the CPC show up every time. I know I can skip anything after the first second, and I do. Even then ...

cartoon life: My stone age blood

The Prothrombin 20210 Allele is apparently traceable to some 20,000 years ago. This is late Pleistocene. This is late Stone Age. Hunter gatherer’s. My ancestors have been in Europe a very long time. First records of my family in Italy are from the late 1800’s, the house on Borgo Nouvo, in Monteleone. Borgo Nouvo means: ...

1) Pages that don’t zoom. I want the text a bit bigger so I can read it. You want to show me ads. You disable zoom for your page. I’m frustrated by being unable to read the page. I don’t stay to see the ads. I close the page and move on. If it turns ...

cartoon life: After two years. Zazzle earns me $100.

I has a question? There are threads at the Zazzle forum asking how much do people earn. Nobody responds with an actual number. “Enough”, or “I do okay” isn’t an adequate response. Well, here it is after two years; maybe 500 images, over 1,000 products, perhaps 1500 product views, a Zazzle storefront that sees maybe ...

cartoon life: Stop waking me up I’m trying to sleep

The digitizer on this iPad has some brain dead spots, it seems, where Pencil in Paper looses its brain. Either it’s Pencil, some sensitive coding in the app or the digitizer, or memory, or processor speed on this 3G iPad. So the black line work was done in Paper with the new fancy stuff turned ...

cartoon life: Forlorn cat

Whatever comes up, comes up. CT Scan clean. EEG clean. MRI today. Blood work excellent. Cholesterol low to non-existent. No risk of diabetes. My weight and condition is very good, aside for someone turning 61 years old today. The drawing around the eyes, the shape of them in this cat suggested some sadness and self-absorbed ...
