The Dems regain power in the House, Republicans retain power in the Senate, back to split power and probably not a heck of a lot of anything of consequence getting done in Congress for the next 2 years.  Whatever agendas Trump had, he can flush a lot of it down the toilet. Executive Orders will become the only method to push anything forward that an EO can legally accomplish.

And there was CNN"s Acosta today. See I found out today I can watch Directv on my iphone without using any data now because ATT bought out Directv and came out with this new deal. I had read about it last month, but it was confusing as to who gets what free data. So I contacted them today, I wanted to watch the footage of all the post election coverage without using a ton of my data.  I mean really, to be able to watch any of the channels I have on either plan I'm paying for is a pretty good deal.

Well I don't have the password for the Directv I'm paying for at home, going to change that so I can log in. I have way more channels - for less money lol - than the other house.


That was a long interlude lol.  I was down to 209 this morning.  I'm getting warnings from groups and people that have done this diet that they gain it all back and then some when they quit.  I'd like to think it's possible to just eat low calorie on carb filled stuff and be able to maintain your weight.  I dunno, I'm not going to worry about that right now. 

The handyman for the owner of the other house came over and gave Rene a hind quarter of a deer.  So, we just spent some time cutting it up.  A couple of nice roasts, a large number of nice steaks and the rest is stew meat.  Very lean meat.  You don't just get people handing your a large chunk of meat like that every day.  Tomorrow we're having deer steaks for dinner.

Now then.  I was perusing Facebook marketplace locally and came across a piece of land - small - for $6,000.  Near a lake.  $1,000 down and payments of $200 per month until the balance is paid off.  It isn't terribly far from here but I dunno about the rental prospectives.  A dilapidated house that would need to come down and put a small mobile on it.  I think it's a bit far from civilaztion to make it a good risk.  I'd like it for personal use lol tho.  There are other small properties I also found at low prices and owner financed, but a bit too far off. 

The possibilities are out there.  I'ma keep my eye out for these deals.  There aren't even an acre most of them but for the monthly payment, putting a structure of some sort and renting it would make some money.  Start small, gotta start somewhere. 

I've heard nothing from work today, I figured I would be going back to work tomorrow but I guess not.  Paycheck coming through tonight is the aftermath of the 10 days off and it ain't pretty.  Even with that 30 hours vacation time it is still a small paycheck, smaller than anything I"ve seen there yet.  And I'm gong to take another 5 or 6 days off in a few weeks? Yup, I already paid for the airfare, that's a done deal. 

Well enough of that - the previous post that is. Excepting that I found out the hard way this morning that there is ammo hoarding going on, ...
