Has anybody else noticed that Prime deliveries are taking 3-5 days during this Christmas season? It wasn’t like this last year. I guess the Sunday USPS drivers have gotten lazy… again.
Let’s just start this out right: This is the reason Ford was able to rationalize (environmentally) killing off the Excursion years ago. This beast can hold 8 passengers and is powerful AND doesn’t suck at the gas pump. Oh, and it has a more powerful V6 than the old Excursion’s V8. Seriously. This is that f*cking crazy 3.5 EcoBoost V6 that makes… wait for it… 400 HP and 485 lb/ft Torque (with 93 Octane… Tiny bit less with 87 Octane). Um, that’s craziness! Why would anyone get a V8 anymore?? All I have to say is this: Holy Wow. They made good on their promise to responsibly replace the Excursion (and then some) and they finally did it (this time) with the new Expedition. Tick-Tock guys, but still good work! This is what I would have chosen to pull my (non-existant) Airstream!)
By the way- this thing is upwards of $80,000. Yes, for reals. (Base models start at $51,695)
For all your questions and curiosities, go to EXPEDITION. I’m too lazy to type out all the details.
If I may… I’m an #AppleFanBoy and a #GoogleNut too. I also like random other software (remember “Lindows” or “LinSpire”? Anyway, I have liked them all because I love watching these software companies make their stuff work. Except AT&T’s @DirecTVNow that will only play in the Chome Browser, no matter what computer or operating system you have. #LameAndStupid. Anyway… So here @Apple releases 2 new iPhones just a few weeks (months?) back. Well, the 8 and 8Plus are the standard move forward from last years 7 and 7Plus (no “S” this year kids, play catch-up like Apple and just skip one). Well, as it turns out, developers- a lot of them have to have 2 versions of their software to accommodate the 6, 7, 8 separate from the X. Here’s why: That damn tab at the top of the full-frontal. Apple even had to tweak it’s iOS so that things that normally went across the top of the screen would now sit on the left and right of the tab as to not get lost in it. Which brings me back to the other developers. So, Google jumped on making accommodations for the X’s tab. If you’re watching @YouTube on your phone, you’re doing it in landscape mode. So they made quick changes that would recognize when an X was calling for their data. They simply move (not crop) the video fully intact to the right of the starting point on the left side of the X’s screen in landscape mode. So their videos don’t have a tab of video missing. They got it right. Yes, it does look a little weird that the whole screen isn’t being used, but would you rather a partial piece of the left side of your video just not show?
So I thought, what about gamers? What if there is something critical that would normally be on that part of the left side of the screen, where that damn tab is? What if there was a button or easter egg or something that the user couldn’t access because they couldn’t SEE it. So, because I had nothing better to do, I looked for a few examples of how that damn tab could get in the way when code is not written in its consideration. The following screenshots are perfect examples (like me naked). There are literally hundreds of developers having to tweak their code to get their stuff looking right on the X.
You know who did it right (and why I just bought an iPhone 6S Plus instead of the X)? Samsung. That f*cking @Samsung did it right. Their new S8 and Note got the full-frontal right… Take a look at these screenshots.
I did a review of the 2017 Honda rebel motorcycle just a week or so ago. And then some fool did a review for foxnews.com. And the thing is almost word for word copied from my blog. #DontPlagiarize
This feels like the perfect time to share a review video on a product most people will only need in the hot summer, lol. Enjoy!
Just my opinion:
Kathy Griffin is awesome for her rant video. She has bigger balls than most straight men I know. She is funnier than sh*t. She posed with that stupid Trump mask and I think people got a little carried away. Her shows shouldn’t have been canceled, and her fans shouldn’t have been denied the shows they had paid to go see. Media outlets- not social media like nobodies like mine, but the real legit news and gossip sites/shows, went crazy on her. They kind of went after her. People she has known for years, friends, colleagues, employees, employers- just dropped her and walked away. Why? It was just a f*cking picture. @Madonna put out a whole book of herself naked, and she barely got bashed for it. Didn’t she also “threaten” to shoot Trump? WHO CARES. None of this, Madonna’s or Kathy’s stuff was a serious threat.
I’ve met a few of the people Kathy talks about during her rant. I think she’s telling the truth.
Here’s the thing, my little horse & pony show VocalVirgo.com isn’t just a website about my RV adventures. Or about the animal rescue I throw myself in. Or about my HILLARIOUS random rants about the sex I never had with those black guys. It’s about EVERYTHING. It’s a blog about my peculiar, kind of unconventional life in general. It’s about ALL those things and more. I have fans from the #VanLife world. And fans from the Animal Rescue community. Some fans follow my (f)art solely for the #PottyMouth and #ToiletHumor stuff. And of course, there are those fans that have 20/20 vision and are just here to stare at all my perfectly chiseled beauty. I don’t blame them. I’m looking into a gorgeous mirror right now. BUT the one subject I don’t do (aside from jokes) is politics. I can’t stand them, I’m dumb about them (just like Trump) and I couldn’t be less interested. SO, politics aside: Kathy Griffin did good. And I think she’s being persecuted unfairly. We want her to come back so we can hear more p*ssy jokes and to hear her make fun of celebrities and clueless people and invade the gays personal lives. Oh how I miss her invading me…
Anyway- That’s my thoughts on Kathy Griffin. From my #VanLife. With my cat, 2 rats, 2 turtles and this cute little underage Mexican girl I picked up crossing the border. I give it a day in the Van with me before she’s begging to go back over the Wall that’s not there yet. I won’t understand what she’s saying during her pleas, of course, because I don’t understand Mexican, but I’ll get the gist. <— Did I spell that right?
