 Jim  Nevada Power is coming out to calibrate my meter
I called 367-5555x1x6 on 5/19/2006 to arrange for this. They'll look at the meter, and if there it is miscalibrated, then they'll take it in for recalibration.

 Jim  If God is both white and black, then we are gray
If love is good and hate is bad, then neither is worse. I am living and I cast shadows. I am life. I create fire
Lay me down for my last day and end it, but today, I will make light or I will cast a shadow.
I will move matter, I will make a small ripple in a pond as big as the sun and it will make a difference.
Life is kill or be killed. Eat death, or die. The rules are simple.
What kind of god is this? To watch our lives with joy. To gain entainment from suffering. To be like us.
From birth to slaughter, god is the inventor.
By design we are all doomed.
We think a chicken is just an animal that doesn't complain in English of its suffering. So it doesn't suffer.
What is it, when a man circles the world to kill who he finds?
Riches offer another man's time for selfish pleasure. The rich wrap themselves in a cocoon and think think they are better.
Pleasures don't last. Memories don't last. Nothing but the rules, by design, lasts.
The end, is always the beginning of something.
We have never seen a true circle. A circle has no beginning or end. Yet all we've seen ends.
If a person sees Jesus, they are saved. If they see Hitler, they are insane, if they see the sun, they go blind. 
Science obeys god's rules, and his rules are cause and effect. Everything else is a myth.
Stupid Bible Stories
We've all seen rivers part by a man holding a stick. We've all seen damns part the river, because we built them.
We's all seen someone walking across the waters. We've all seen ice skaters.

 Jim  Cleared out a truck load of cactus from the condo.
It was nasty work, partly because I decided to use the rotten fencing from back yard to cover the truck bed with.
My asthma is almost back. I've been doing some terrible things to provoke it. Silly me.

 Jim  So, what are we doing?
What was that master plan again?
The idea was to create fall back, for you, me and Sonny.
Now, Sonny already had it made, living in the condo for free.
On the other hand, we didn't.
So, I got Sonny to move in here, while we fixed up the condo for rent.
The idea being, the condo pays for the house.
05/30/2006 20:17:04
 Jim  Put up an 8x6 foot shed
It took about 3 hours all-in-all, from chosing, purchasing, transport and construction.
It looks like a decent unit for $500.
05/30/2006 00:45:06
 Jim  Ate at the HaufBrowHause
It was okay German food. Pricey. Located on Harmon and Paradise.
Robert and Joy came over.
JC, Roberts friend that lived two apartments down died. He had sleep apnea and was taking Vicadone for his back.
We went to the condo. Robert said he thought it would rent between $800 and $1,000.

 Jim  Memorial Day
So far, still drained. Hoping my body will perk up. Got hot shits and drowsiness.
05/29/2006 10:08:22
 Jim  Yesterday was a dead day.
We accomplished nothing. Becky slept until 2pm. lol
I felt tired all day. Something about the trip drained me.
05/25/2006 19:56:10
 Jim  Another interesting day at the condo
I was going to hang one of the bedroom doors when...
I discovered who ever took them down, took the screws someplace else. I was enraged.
So, after going to the store, and finding out the new screws I bought for $5 were wrong, we went back to the store.
I hung the door.
THEN, when wanting to hang the other door, I discovered whoever, took the hinges....WHY!!!
Anyway, thats another run to the store.
Then I went to fix the kitchen sink.
It had a hose on it, 5' long, corked with a broom handle, inserted where you'd put a dishwasher connection.
This place has had some very strange things done to it. I removed the hose and filled the connection.
I also hung a shelf, part of which was in the garage, the other part in a bedroom.
We've lost a lot of time due to needless stupidity.
I also discovered we need to paint the air intake register. It has written on the outside, the size of the filter.
05/24/2006 23:20:30
 Jim  Robert and Joy came over
Robert needed me to use my credit card to get his phone turned on.
05/24/2006 23:18:24
 Jim  Sonny’s car...according to the Sinclair station
Has everything wrong with it. Nevermind, they just replaced the fuel pump and what was running right, now wasn't.
Now they say he needs new O2 sensors, spark plugs, and injectors.
But it ran fine before they replaced the fuel pump. It just didn't start.
They're fucking with his wallet.

 Jim  Bought a cell phone
I thought I'd lost my phone. We looked everywhere twice.
Anyway, I ended up buying a new one, with now contract.
The one I thought I'd lost was selling retail for less than what I paid with a contract.
In other words, you always get screwed somehow with the cell phone people.
We searched the stores for a door 29 3/4" bye  79".
Nothing. We'd have to special order one.
All the doors at my house are that size, so they must have changed the Standards again.
05/22/2006 20:36:42
 Jim  Hung the front door at the condo today.
I had bought the wrong door, and had to return the thing.
We also got a viewport for the door. It all looks GREAT!
Hauled off the old door and the old garage door openner.
I bought the wrong size bedroom door though. Dangit!!!
Meanwhile, Sonny almost completed the kitchen sink.
05/20/2006 20:39:10
 Jim  Hung the garage door openner.
It was HOT inside that garage, and the project took about 7 hours.
We got my tire replaced from me popping it on a median the night before.
While it was getting replaced, we went to the atrium at Sam's Town. Its great!!!
And the margaritas were great too!
Meanwhile, Sonny got his fuel pump replaced.
05/19/2006 12:09:25
 Jim  Called Nevada Power @ 367-5555 x 1 x 6
They're coming out on June 6th to calibrate my meter.

 Jim  Condomese
That is Condo-mese: Language of the Condo...haha.
Sonny lost his car keys
And he didn't have a spare SO...that threw a wrench in things.
However, he did put in an outlet box in the garage.
Becky and I:
-  hooked up the lavoratory's sink, (1 hour)
- hung two closet doors,  (1 hour)
- hung the sliding glass door blinds. (1 hour)
- Hauled two loads to the dumpster.
Not bad for a day's worth of work.
All thats left now is the:
- Garage door opener. (2 hours)
- Replacing the kitchen sink (2 hours)
- Replacing the front door. (4 hours)
- Replacing the sliding glass door locks with keyed entry. (4 hours)

 robert  dumb labels lol
Some examples of why the human race has probably evolved as far as possible. These are actual instruction labels on consumer goods...

On Sears hairdryer:
Do not use while sleeping.
(Gee, that's the only time I have to work on my hair!)

On a bag of Fritos:
You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside.
(The shoplifter special!)

On a bar of Dial soap:
Directions: Use like regular soap.
(and that would be how?)

On some Swann frozen dinners:
Serving suggestion: Defrost.
(But it's 'just' a suggestion!)

On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert: (printed on bottom of the box)
Do not turn upside down.
(Too late! you lose!)

On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding:
Product will be hot after heating.
(Are you sure? Let's experiment.)

On packaging for a Rowenta iron:
Do not iron clothes on body.
(But wouldn't that save more time?)(Whose body?)

On Boot's Children's cough medicine:
Do not drive car or operate machinery.
(We could do a lot to reduce the construction accidents if we just kept those 5 year olds off those fork lifts.)

On Nytol sleep aid:
Warning: may cause drowsiness.
(One would hope!)

On a Korean kitchen knife:
Warning: keep out of children.
(hmm...something must have gotten lost in the translation...)

On a string of Christmas lights:
For indoor or outdoor use only.
(As opposed to use in outer space.)

On a food processor:
Not to be used for the other use.
(Now I'm curious.)

On Sainsbury's peanuts:
Warning: contains nuts.
(but no peas?)

On an American Airlines packet of nuts:
Instructions: open packet, eat nuts.
(somebody got paid big bucks to write this one...)

On a Swedish chainsaw:
Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands.
(Raise your hand if you've tried this...)

On a child's Superman costume:
Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly.
(Oh go ahead! That's right, destroy a universal childhood belief
