Lonely, try     - a chat bot that really simulates someone typing back to you, I tried many tests and it is very human like. Late at night when one wants to chat and nobody is around online, this is kind of fun, check it out.

Latest OSX, where are scrollbars?

OMG, where are the scrollbars Apple?  After the last OSX upgrade, I noticed the scroll bars on the side of windows is either missing or tiny, or comes and goes when you mouse over them. This is a step backwards Apple, we need our scrollbars!

The 7 Faces of Dr. Lao

The 7 Faces of Dr. Lao was a low-budget movie, so don't look for the best CGI, however almost everything Tony Randall says and does, acting like a Chinese philosopher man, is awesome. One quote in the movie that I always think now is: "I am alive and that is fantastic".

And, I focus on right now not the past or the future. This movie is a must see: The 7 Faces of Dr. Lao.

A slow starting movie, but it has the wisdom generating Tony Randall actor, playing the best acting role of his life, a sample is at:

What is CBD?

What is CBD? It is one of the many compounds/molecules found in the marijuana/hemp plant. CBD is the part of the plant that is legal in all 50 states, and does not get you high. CBD is very safe and has a stellar record, when it is used in moderation, instead of pills or alcohol for many medical conditions.

I am a judgment referral expert (a judgment broker) who writes a lot. CBD is not at all like the more popular (legal in some states) THC molecule/compound. THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is the most popular and potent part of weed that can make you high.

Most of the medicinal value of weed comes from cannabidiol (CBD). CBD does not get you high, however it has a wide range of therapeutic benefits. CBD even helps THC usage be a more enjoyable experience.

It is safer, more positive, and healthier to have some CBD in the weed that one inhales or consumes. Nature wisely put both THC and CBD into this wonderful plant.

Right now, you can buy CBD extracts online all over the US, because it comes from the legal hemp plant having almost no THC. Think of hemp as the brother to its sister plant marijuana, the plant that can get you high. Right now, CBD products seem overpriced, perhaps due to the demand; more competition will help.

Historically, THC is what sells. Currently, the vast majority of weed plants are grown and raised to produce the highest THC levels, and relatively low CBD levels.

Thankfully, now growers and dispensaries are selling higher-CBD weed/hemp products, in addition to the weed products that may get you high. Without going into detail, small nightly doses of CBD cured my medical problems when 7 months of many different (and dangerous) doctor's RX pills could not. Here are some of the ways that CBD has helped others:

1) CBD might reverse alcohol-induced brain damage.

2) CBD might be a very effective treatment for social anxiety problems.

3) CBD may be an anti-tumor and anti-cancer supplement.

4) CBD may be a potent anti-psychotic/anti-schizophrenia medicine.

5) CBD helps certain people having mild seizures and/or shaking limb-syndromes.

6) CBD is legal, however you may find it only on the web. CBD comes in a variety of forms including oils, smoking, vaporizing, electronic-cigarettes, tinctures, food and drink (edibles), capsules, and chewing gum.

Uninformed people (including a shocking number of doctors) think that CBD is evil, some consider CBD to be a vitamin, and most consider it to be a medicine. CBD is legal because it does not get you high and has almost no abuse potential. CBD needs a lot more marketing and competition, to drive down the price of CBD extracts.

    Apple iTunes suggestion

    I listen to music a lot, even when I sleep. I use iTunes, and have a suggestion for Apple's iTunes.
    Have an option in preferences, to ignore silent parts in the beginning and ending of songs. Too often, I have silent parts before or after songs, and now I must edit them each; and would love it if iTunes ignored the silent parts.

    An unusual wake-up call from a Fox Inflatable Bed

    About a month ago, I bought a King-size Fox airbed, and I really liked it until this morning.
    This morning I woke up suddenly and rudely, on my floor because my inflatable bed had broken in a very strange way while I was sleeping, the center of the bed suddenly rose up 2 feet into a pyramid shape, and with the steep incline,  I unintentionally rolled off, what a morning!

    Malaysian Chile Sesame Prawns recipe

    (Good for clearing the sinuses!) Notice this receipt has no added oils or fats.  Enjoy, this is as good as an Asian restaurant.  Good over rice, I use brown rice, Costco has these little packs you just microwave and get instant brown rice.

    Malaysian Chile Sesame Prawns:

    * 1/4 cup Linghams's Chili sauce
    * 1/4 cup ketchup
    * 1 tablespoon soy sauce
    * 4 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
    * 7 red chilies, chopped into little bits
    * 1/4 onion chopped into little bits (green onions work well too, if you have them, toss in a few chopped ones)
    * 1 pound raw prawns or shrimp
    * 1/2 cup chicken broth (I use low sodium)
    * 1 egg
    * 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
    * 1/8 cup pink (rose) wine

    Mix ketchup, chili sauce, soy sauce, sesame seeds together, and set aside.

    In a wok or a pan; add wine, garlic, onion, and chilies. When garlic turns
    gold, add set aside chili sauce ketchup mix, and reduce the heat a little,
    and cook the mix 2 more minutes, stirring slowly.

    Turn up the heat, add the shrimp, pushing the shrimp down to the pan to cook them quickly.

    Add the chicken broth, cook at reduced heat for 2 minutes.

    Add the beaten egg, and cook and stir 1 more minute, or when egg is cooked fully.

    BK timing and judgments

    It is common knowledge that if your judgment debtor files for bankruptcy protection after you get your judgment, your judgment is usually DOA. What most people do not know, is that if your debtor went BK before the cause of action for your judgment, then that can be a very good sign because the debtor successfully wiped out most or all of their previous debts. (And your judgment debtor cannot file bankruptcy again for a relatively long time.)

    The best peppermint candies to clear the sinuses

    I just found some awesome Kasugai-brand Peppermint Hard Candy, that comes straight from Japan. It clears my sinuses and lungs and they taste good. For a candy, it is very healthy and makes most American peppermint candy taste pale by comparison.

    These candies look like quartz crystals, have no food coloring, and are all natural with real peppermint oil. The best way to buy them in the US is from Amazon, and they ship from the vendor. It can take a month to get them, and you must sign for them, and possibly go to the post office because the vendor wants to make sure you get them! They are not always in stock, but are in stock now.

    Peppermint, marijuana, steam, Mucinex, and exercise; are magic when combined, to restore health to people with most  mucus-based congestion annoyances or problems. This combination keeps me out of the bathroom, in full health, and I do not use any doctor's pills or any OTC pill/medicines, nor do I need to rinse my nose anymore.

    Peppermint opens up our thousands of lung sacs and sinus cavities, something that might interest weed smokers and/or people with any mucus-based lung or sinus lung congestion problems. Everything in our minds and bodies and environment is connected, and our lungs and sinus and brain are very tightly connected.

    Update, Altoids Peppermints seem to have more power and are sugarless. I use them now!
