Rickie Traeger: Happy Hump Day, Chess, Etc…




Happy Hump Day!  

I missed the Curse of Oak Island tonight and Kings Of Pain.  I will have to try catching up on them later on today.   No spoil-ers please, LOL.

I am in the mood to play some chess.  I think after I finish this up, I am going to go play some chessmaster. I used to be very good at chess, but as I grew older and didn’t play as often I lost my skill, lol.  I like to play on hard levels, so I can try to up my game some, but I still get my butt kicked alot in it. Damn you AI, LOL.

I am sitting here and chilling to the band Ice Nine Kills.  Pretty good band. I like them a lot.  If you have not heard them, go on youtube and check them out. https://www.iceninekills.com/

While I am chilling to the music and typing this, I am also thinking how grateful and thankful I am to know some people. I know as we get older and we don’t see or talk much these days. I will be forever grateful and very thankful to know you.  Many great memories that I will cherish forever 🙂

I am letting my beard grow out. I shaved the goatee awhile back and figured I would let the beard all grow in evenly.  I don’t recall the last time I had a beard, lol.   Well it won’t be long now.  I am thinking about letting my hair grow out too. I have kept it short for a very long time.  So time to change it up some, lol

Time to pop off here and go shower and then play some chess.  Hope everyone has a safe and happy hump-day.

 








Rickie Traeger: Black Friday……… Bring Back Z-Nation! Project Blue Book :)




I hope everyone is having a safe and wonderful weekend! 

So what was your thoughts on your Black Friday experience?

Mine:  Retailers should be ashamed of themselves!   I saw many places doing the following tactics. I been keeping my eyes on several items and planned on buying them for Black Friday.  So I know what the prices have been for some time now.

Well………  I waited until black Friday to get a “deal” on them.

The retailers RAISED THE PRICES UP A LOT on the items.

Then saying heres the Black Friday “deal”  and that “deal” was either AT or ABOVE the prices the items I have been watching, prices BEFORE Black Friday.

Example: Canon Powershot SX530  Normally goes for around $200-$230.  Walmart price before Black Friday was $245.   For Black Friday they said the retail price was $479, but the Black Friday “deal” was $250.  So much for that deal………  And a day after Black Friday it is $249.

But I saw this happening by several retailers on several items.  SMFH

I did see a few deals on some items, so to be fair I did see a few deals.  But it sure is nothing like it used to be awhile back ago.  When you really got the deals on alot of items, and you actually got a good deal on the items. Nothing like that these days.  When I worked in retail in the past, I learned some of their marketing tactics.  And one of them was to say you have a deal on this item. And make it appear there are several of them in stock. But they ONLY PUT 1 IN STOCK.  So they can draw you there to the store on that deal. And when you get there it has been since long gone because only 1 was in stock, and they can legally say they had that deal on the item, all while drawing you to their store.

I lost a lot of respect for retailers because of their marketing tactics. Reminds me alot like politicians. They lie to you, to get what benefits them…

Time to change themes here now, LOL.   I am super excited!  Project Blue Book is coming back on TV!  I am like really excited. I love that show.  Speaking of tv shows though, Walking Dead is now off until February. I kinda hate this mid season finale crap. But in another way, it kinda nice to draw the season out some through out the year.  I wish Z-Nation was back on tv!  I miss that show.  It did a lot of stuff walking dead wouldn’t of said or do. Bring back Z-Nation!

 








Rickie Traeger: Happy Wet Tuesday Blog




I hope everyone is staying dry. It is a wet Tuesday out there.

I been wanting to re-watch Project Blue Book, but they are making you pay for it online to watch it, grrrr.

I been playing with the sdr dongle, listening to the local radio on it.  The antenna that came with it, sucks. So I am going to buy an antenna adapter for it. I want to be able to listen to the aircraft with it.

Not to much to add to todays blog, other than I am hoping to work on some websites later tonight.

Everyone please be safe.








Rickie Traeger: Happy Walking Dead Day




Happy Walking Dead Day! 

 

Holy cow, what an episode of Walking Dead!

I kinda wonder how Carol and Daryl’s relationship is going to be now???

Liddy goes back to the Whispers.  Daryl is going to be super mad…

The ending of tonights episode kinda explained his flashbacks.  And explains some…

Spoiler Alert: Man that sucks he died!!!

So now we know the whispers have a spy in a high position in their community now.

So I am asking myself, how is this going to play out? As you know the Walking Dead writers kill people off all the time and do not stick to the comics.

One of the cool things I like about the show, but at the same time. WTF killing off main characters, grrrrrrrrrrr

I am goingto watch the replay in a few minutes, I love this show 😛

 








Rickie Traeger: Happy Walking Dead Day!




Hope everyone had a good Sunday! Happy Walking Dead Day!

I wanted to wait until after I watched the Walking Dead before I blogged tonight.

Hard to believe only 3 episodes left of the Walking Dead, well I think 2 now 🙁

It be interesting to see how Daryl reacts to Carol using him.

And to see what Negan is up to.  The show is making it look like he is wanting to become friends with the whispers.  My opinion, I think he is trying to join them to be a spy.  I think he has grown on everyone and came to the good side now.  After he killed that savior last week. And how he grew on Carl and others. I personally feel that he is trying to join the whispers to help the good side. I guess time will tell, lol.  I like Carol’s idea though. Get rid of the horde, you get rid of the leverage of the whispers. I used to hate Negan, but now I kinda like him. And like I said, I think him trying to join the whispers, are to take vengeance for what the whispers have done.

 








Rickie Traeger: Happy Saturday, Cleaned Tarantula Cage, Caught Up On TV Shows




Good afternoon everyone! Hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday!

I caught up on AMH, Myans MC, and Supernatural last night.   I was working on the websites and watched them while working on the website. I couldn’t believe how far behind I was. Well not anymore, lol.

I am watching the Nascar race at Phoenix as I write this. Decent race so far.

As many of you know I have a pet tarantula.  I just finished cleaning her cage. I had woodchips in there before and just switched it over to a coconut soil.  I actually kinda like this new stuff. I was going to go back with the woodchips, but figured I would try this stuff out.  It is super soft, so I am pretty sure my tarantula is going to like it.  I took out the 2 water sponges in there. I kept her water dish in there. She never used the 2 water sponges, so it is pointless to have them in there is she wasn’t going to use them.  She has her web right on the opening doors now. So it kinda made it interesting to clean her cage today. I should take a photo and upload it here. Actually I need to take a recent photo of her, because she molted again a month or so ago and she is huge 🙂
