 Notes from the Edge May 18 2024 Posted by Dell on 05/18/2024 I was watching a commercial for a chicken farm, a popular brand of chicken we have all probably eaten (Unless you do not partake of meat then please excuse me). They called it a safe   and clean place for the chickens. Yes, the announcer said, 'We maintain a safe and clean environment for our birds.' I thought What! I was amazed because, after all, the chickens end up being slaughtered. So I wonder if anyone besides me has thought, how is that safe? Safe up until the time we kill them? Do they give a warning first? 'WONK! WONK! WONK! WARNING! WARNING ALL CHICKENS! IT IS TIME TO GO INSIDE THE PROVIDED HUTCHES FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY! WE CAN NOT GUARANTEE YOUR SAFETY ANY LONGER IF YOU STAY ON THE MAIN FLOOR AREA! ... WONK! WONK! WONK! WARNING ALL CHICKENS...' Of course when they go inside the provided hutches as any good chicken would do they are snatched up and killed. Poor chickens. Anyway, I'm pretty s

A landscape and track I am working on. This is a gravel road with asphalt at the bridge and in the tunnels. Jumps, tunnels, esses, and plenty of track. I will allow some free downloads when it is finished. I am building/skinning small houses for a little desert town to drive through, some fences and a few other pieces. #3d #3dmodel #3dgamebuilds #RadSandbox #dellsweet

 Notes from the Edge 05-16-24 👁📱📸 I am working on getting healthy, battling an insurance company that screws me over every month or so. I have never actually experienced a fair insurance company. I have seen commercials, and they seem so nice: Go ahead, drive that Porsche into a pool, you're covered! Your house burned down? We'll look into it, maybe not as quick as you would like, but we will, and maybe we'll get back to you, maybe not. And when it comes to health care, wow. Hopefully you will not have to deal with it, or if you are, advocate for yourself. Be firm, make sense, research what you are saying, and if you can’t get anywhere else? Notify the Attorney General of your state. Believe me, once the insurance company gets an inquiry from the Attorney General’s office concerning you, they will get their heads out of their a$$ and do something. Okay, I am not a complainer, we've all been through a rough year, and it ain't over yet. And I know everyone has th

  Oh, so, it's Monday. What happened to the weekend? Back in my younger days of drinking I lost days, weekends, but I thought that stuff ended with sobriety! Monday, there isn't anything to do but deal with it. My wife and I have spent the last several nights binge watching You on Netflix.  This series is ongoing, we are in season three and it has us hooked pretty solidly. Without spoilers, we find ourselves wondering who might die in the current episode we are watching. Well written and based on a series of books by Caroline Kepnes . The actors are great. I had never heard of Penn Badgley before, we watched it on the strength of Victoria Pedretti whom we had seen and loved in The Haunting of Hill House (Also Netflix). Check it out if you have the opportunity. We have Hulu and Netflix, HBO, 200 plus cable channels, YouTube and Paramount and we pretty much just alternate between YouTube channels we follow and Netflix or Hulu. HBO rarely and the other several hundred channels n

 Notes from the Edge 05-12-2024 Today the topic is Cell Phones...📱 Cell Phones: Tin cans and string: This Cell phone thing is my generation's fault. I'll fess up right here. We tied string to tin cans, pretended they were loud and clear radios, and dreamed of networks of tin cans and string. Okay, I dreamed of networks of tin cans and string. I think a few of my friends did too, but I won't put them on the spot. But, someone must have besides me, because we grew up looking for that tin can. We spawned children with that tin can thing embedded in their DNA. That and the Communicator from Star Trek. If that wasn't a glimpse into the future and cell phones, I don't know what it was. It was inevitable, and we should have known it as soon as some fool back in the fifties gave us Walki Talkies. It was almost a reality right there. Probably good enough for some of us, but no, not for all of us. Some said... "Hey, Bob. What if I could talk to Tim, Ellie and
