Finally done with the project. And I can go back to my social isolation

Seems like I was the only one trying to maintain any sense of social distancing and common sense precautions.

Anyways, here is the completed project. Compared to my old smaller furnace, this thing looks like a beast

Hmm, which is funnier, both made me laugh. But in the end I'll just cry :tearsofjoy:

I think we're all (those of us who have businesses or work for a living) are about to be crying it towards the end of 2024......

Enjoy higher taxes, crappy economy, higher fuel prices, higher consumer prices, personal freedom stripped, 2nd amendment attacks, crime rates going up..... But hey! Got that evil orange man out right?

Stupid people.

I’m glad you like kool aid because you are sure drinking enough of it!

....... Biden already said that he's raising taxes which will increase the price of goods and services, he's already said that he is getting rid of oil and fracking, he has said he would force people to wear masks and has threatened to lock everyone down again, he's already said that he's coming for our "ar-14s"() ,his supporters continue to riot and terrorize anyone who doesn't conform to their ideology.....

Now what part of that is Kool-Aid that I'm drinking? Because all of it is things he's said or advocated for......

I think my blue parrot B250-XT headset has bit the dust.
It won't connect to my new or old iphone, not detectable.

I tried doing a hard reset of the headset (which it wouldn't do) and other online help solutions that didn't work.
The only clue I got was when I tried to synch it with my new iphone for the 1st time. It said it wasn't compatible with my new phone :hushed:
Which didn't really make sense. But the headset is like 10 years old. Been a great headset, but it has seen better days ;)

So unless it starts to magically work, looks like i'll be getting a new one. As good as it has been, it will be hard not to get the same one, since they still sell this model.

Mine took a dump a while ago and needed one asap. Ended up going to Walmart and getting a $35 platronics ear piece. So comfortable, so clear, cuts outside noise....I never ended up going back and buying another Parrot I've had it for 2 years now, and haven't had an issue.

Oh Rags, I needed a good laugh :tearsofjoy:

I did end up getting a new one. B250-XTS. The J just happened to be having a $20 off sale (with no rebate, image that haha).
So I'm happy :)

I guess things have changed. Besides telling me it's on/off/connected/discovery, there is no wall charger, just USB :oops:
My old one didn't even have a USB port haha. Being able to get updates will be a nice feature. If this one last for another 10 years, I'll be pretty happy.

I jumped ahead in technology by a decade this week with a new iphone and headset, what next?
Give up my Windows 7? :JC-hysterical:

A few months ago PFJ had 30% off all headsets, plus BlueParrott had a $50 rebate on the B 550-xt, so that's the one I got.

Why don't you just save all the small dramatics and just say the world is going to end?

Awww, what's the matter? Upset that I stated facts that you don't want to hear?

Why don't you stop pretending things aren't what they are and things aren't about to be what they're about to be?

I remember what was said once Obama was elected.
I remember what was said once Trump was elected.
Neither was as bad as what the scaredy-cats were claiming.

Best thing you can do is prepare yourself for what YOU think is going to happen, if it fits within your obligations. We did as we are in the process of moving from Pontiac further north. At some point solar is on the radar. Don't expect government, or the people you complain to, to help you get yourself in shape to protect yourself from whatever apocalypse may come.

My dad used to use a popular quote from the British - "Never complain, never explain." I think it fits in here.

Never at any point in previous history, is this country facing what it's facing. We have literally watched the left Express openly about their willingness and desire to destroy this country from the inside out. Through terrorism, and through socialism. Joe Biden supposedly winning the election did nothing but emboldened them. Meaning that it showed them if they want to get their way, all they have to do is stop their feet and terrorize people until they get what they want. No different than a kid throwing a fit in the checkout line for a candy bar.

This country went to hell in the 8 years of Obama, it was brought back from the brink by Trump (regardless of how well he's liked). Now under Joe Biden's senile leadership... It's only going to be worse than it was during the Obama administration.

The only way this is going to be solved as if we start putting these terrorists in their places. In the dirt to be more specific.

I don't blame you if you are too scared to accept it, and to see the reality of it. It's a very disturbing thing to think about full on war with people getting hurt and killed on American soil. But unfortunately we've seen how they were able to rig elections for the desired results so voting is no longer useful. you and I both know what's coming... I certainly hope you're prepared for it because if it's not them it's most likely going to be you.

If it happens it happens. But any civil war is going to be a free-for-all. And if you think some gump is going to cut your family some slack, and not take your stuff just because you voted for the same guy he did, you might as well just turn on the blue light and make those gits think they're at K-mart.

I don't let politics rule my life. I don't bow to the two-headed coin that is the R and D. It's my opinion that there are some serious powers who want civil strife; I'm guessing so they can do away with the rule of law, and replace it with the rule of man. Anarchy is not our friend. Yeah I hoped Trump would win, but we have to live regardless. I will defend my family if necessary, but I will not go out looking to be a hero in a hero-less situation... especially not for an ideology that I don't agree with.
