Hello Saturday! We're having another sunny day that's going to be on the coolish side. Temps are predicted to rise into the low to mid 40s (F), which is fine with me. I do get to work today. 1 PM to 7 PM. This is the shift I worked during the pandemic and I liked it. Being a morning person, everything is pretty much done before noon, so being paid very well to sit at a flooring desk for 6 hours is not bad.
Biggie's appointment has been made for his BIG blood test. He's scheduled for December 20, and will be there for a full 8 hours. The last time he was at the Vet that long was when he had his little man jewels removed. The cost to definitely prove he has Cushing's Disease is $469. How's that for a bite out of the pocketbook? Not only will the test give him an idea of which glands have the little tumors, but also indicate what his med dosage will be. That dog's going to be on more meds than me.
I had chosen a ride through Arcadia, Maine, for my treadmill jaunt yesterday. It looked like it might be relaxing. Well, 3.5 minutes into it YouTube popped in commercials that I skipped, and then 4 minutes later there were more commercials I needed to skip through, and again, 3.5 minutes after that there were more commercials. I shut down the video after 16 minutes because by then there had been 4 sets of commercial breaks. The problem is some content providers want to monetize their videos and so they allow commercials, and Youtube wants you to pay for a subscription to get out of commercials. Sorry, but I'm not on Youtube long enough to justify a monthly payment, and there are plenty of content providers who aren't really interested making a pittance from their videos.
This being said, there are a number of people I do follow on YouTube, content providers whose originality stands out, like Dylan Bibi. He's French, speaks very fast, tends to drink a lot of beer, and is both funny and original.
