How to get NOTHING done today…

21 11 2014

#1: Wake up with a list of a dozen things to do…

#2: Go to the Dr. Office (new doctor) & deal with RUDE nurses & clerk staff. Wait 3 hours to be seen by doctor. When did being the “customer” mean being the bad guy? The forms that I filled out as a new patient asked me if I had any pain. Since I just fell off the porch a little more than a month ago, I told her that I had constant pain. The “front desk woman” very firmly stated that they did NOT do pain management there, and that I was wasting my time with an appointment with the doctor. I firmly but politely stated that I was not there because of my pain, which I have lived with since 2001 in my back, but I was there for a different reason, that since she was NOT the doctor, I would choose NOT to discuss it with HER! She was offended.. They then charged me for my visit PRIOR to my sitting for 3 hours patiently waiting.

Nurse KRATCHETT decided to cough on me as she was walking into the room, not sure if it was a flu cough, or if it was a smokers cough, that deep raspy cough that smokers get after 25 or 30 years of smoking…

See the Dr. all is well, he renews my prescriptions. Doctor was FANTASTIC, rest of the office was the most rude I have ever been to0…

#3: Go to the lab to get a price for the blood that needs to be drawn early next week (did not fast today) turns out if you are paying out of pocket, you pay approx 1/2 of what your insurance would pay if I had insurance. (sorry, I REFUSE out of principle to sign up for ObamaCare!)

#4: Go to the Publix pharmacy and wait 20 minutes just to give them my prescriptions to be filled, this is about 2:30 or 3pm.

#5: Attempt to get to Flagler Beach to check the mail, lane closed, spent 45 minutes in traffic, decided to turn back and go tomorrow.

#6: Get a small nap in my chair while watching the new 2 1/2 men. About 45 minutes worth. Just not long enough.

#7: Head back at about 6:45pm to pick up my prescriptions. (they said it would only take a couple of hours), get there and they are NOT ready… They seemed really busy & I gave them an extra couple of hours “just in case” to get them filled. Had to wait for just under an hour for them to be filled.

As you can see, I REALLY did not get much done. The level of rudeness in Palm Coast, has hit an all time high. Why are the people here so rude, it has been building for some time but I guess that I have not noticed it that much since I have not lived in Palm Coast for a while. It is not ALL of Palm Coast, just a certain segment, from the north, and not all people from the north, just a certain segment of NY & NJ. AND it is not all NY & NJ residents (I know many and they are some of the nicest people you will EVER meet, but some from there give your entire state a bad reputation…)

I just want to ask people when you hit the Florida Line, be polite, be patient, and by all means, don’t be RUDE! Do that back in New York where it is regular, accepted behavior!

Tomorrow is another day…

Starting to paint the outside of the office on Deen Road.

Let me know what you think, I will post a before and after pic once I get it done…

Have a GREAT weekend!

Don’t MESS with this chick!

16 11 2014

As an early Christmas present, I, not being the “jewelry buying type” bought my beautiful wife a new “personal protection device”. She got a new Smith & Wesson Shield 9mm gun! Criminals WATCH out, she is a good shot too…

Just to show proof that this really was her shooting, check out the video that I recorded from “safely behind the firing line”…





Today we train…

16 11 2014

As many of you know, I am a staunch advocate of the 2nd Amendment. I believe that it is EVERYONE’s right to be armed, but I also believe that not everyone should. (You can’t fix stupid!)

My beautiful wife is the proud owner of a new Smith & Wesson M&P shield (9mm) as a concealed carry firearm! I bought this little gem for her to carry, and she has accepted the challenge to put some rounds through the tube today at the range to help her become proficient and comfortable with her new tool. I will post a pic below as a follow-up….

As for me, I have not been to the range in a while, I have not really felt the burning urge that I had 2 years ago. I have however, committed to getting back to flying. I bought a “weight shift ultralight” that I will do a short video of in the very near future.

I went to Atlanta a couple weekends ago to pick this little baby up. I got a pretty good deal, and it ran (but needed the fuel system attended to, fuel lines, filter, tank cleaned out, etc.) It has a 2-stroke Rotax 277 single cylinder 30hp motor on it. It “ran” pretty well.

TrikePic#1_11-11-14 We had a little “incident” that requires some “parts replacement”. I got it running, and was zipping it up and down the block without the wing, just the trike and the prop. I let one of my sons have a shot and he got hit the gas too much, which sent him in the wrong direction. He attempted to hit the cut off switch, and could not reach it. He eventually flipped it over and the prop struck the ground. As traditional with aircraft, any prop strike, you have to rebuild the motor for safety. Since this motor had NO information about number of hours running on it, I have chosen to replace the motor with one that has recently been rebuilt with only 21 hours on it. I have also contacted the propeller company and have ordered a new 3 blade propeller that I will be installing to the new motor. This will add more horsepower, although I believe that it would have flown with no problem, but more “umph” is ALWAYS better! I have also decided to relocate to a more easily accessible location the kill switch to prevent any accidents in the future. I will be putting a few videos up on YouTube soon, but will post here.

Happy day!

30 Things to do for yourself… Day 30

7 08 2014

Here is day #30

Start noticing how wealthy you are right now. – Henry David Thoreau once said, “Wealth is the ability to fully experience life.” Even when times are tough, it’s always important to keep things in perspective. You didn’t go to sleep hungry last night. You didn’t go to sleep outside. You had a choice of what clothes to wear this morning. You hardly broke a sweat today. You didn’t spend a minute in fear. You have access to clean drinking water. You have access to medical care. You have access to the Internet. You can read. Some might say you are incredibly wealthy, so remember to be grateful for all the things you do have.

I hope that over the last 30 days, you have done just a couple, if not all 30 things for yourself, to make you a happier, healthier, and more satisfied person. Go out and do something nice for someone you don’t know and enjoy the fact that you pay it forward.

30 Things to do for yourself… Day 29

6 08 2014

Here is day #29

Start focusing on the possibility of positive outcomes. – The mind must believe it CAN do something before it is capable of actually doing it. The way to overcome negative thoughts and destructive emotions is to develop opposing, positive emotions that are stronger and more powerful. Listen to your self-talk and replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Regardless of how a situation seems, focus on what you DO WANT to happen, and then take the next positive step forward. No, you can’t control everything that happens to you, but you can control how you react to things. Everyone’s life has positive and negative aspects – whether or not you’re happy and successful in the long run depends greatly on which aspects you focus on. Read The How of Happiness.

30 Things to do for yourself… Day 28

5 08 2014

Here is day #28

Start concentrating on the things you can control. – You can’t change everything, but you can always change something. Wasting your time, talent and emotional energy on things that are beyond your control is a recipe for frustration, misery and stagnation. Invest your energy in the things you can control, and act on them now.

30 Things to do for yourself… Day 27

4 08 2014

Here is day #27

Start actively nurturing your most important relationships. – Bring real, honest joy into your life and the lives of those you love by simply telling them how much they mean to you on a regular basis. You can’t be everything to everyone, but you can be everything to a few people. Decide who these people are in your life and treat them like royalty. Remember, you don’t need a certain number of friends, just a number of friends you can be certain of.
