Verizon, Walmart an' back home....long day

Had problems this morn'n. Weren't gonna say nuttin today, but then everbody would accuse me of ignor'n 'em, an ain't no way I'm gonna do that. Now all I got to do is figger out something to write about.


Now that there is what I call a slice of pizza. An' boy howdy let me tell ya.....it was good. I et' the whole damn thing. DeeJournal makes the best pizza in the world....for home cook'n that is. Other half is patiently wait'n in the freezer.
Did I mention when I pick up that skillet thing, my heavy duty pot holder start smok'n. My god that thing was hot. An' speak'n of hot, I cooked that thing bout 5 minutes too long. Start turn'n black on the bottom side. Next time I'll watch it....check on it so's it don't catch a'fire. 

Started clean'n off the desk top this morn'n. Ha...forget that. I started work'n on the grill igniter thingy for the "spud gun from hell". I got stuff lay'n everwheres.

An' while I'm think'n bout it....Verizon. Ya see, a whole bunch of news sites an' Facebook are play'n auto-play videos. That eats up my bandwidth like the cookie monster. When I go over my monthly allotment, they charge me a arm an' a leg....extra. I need more bandwidth, right?

So I go up the road to Verizon. I tell the boy...."I got a air card issue". He says...."what's a air card"? I tell him I need to talk to somebody else. He weren't much better.....said he couldn't change my account 'cause my account was too old. Hmmmm, three years is too old? I left the Verizon store pissed.

So I went to Walmart.....buy'n up stuff. That where my DeeJournal pizza come from. When I finally got out of Walmart, my feet hurt. My back hurt, an' I was pissed some more. Walmart don't got all the stuff I was look'n for. Can you believe, they only had 2 packs of Ball Park beef hot dogs? Just 2, an' I had 4 on my shop'n list. Then I was gonna buy me some maters (tomatoes fer ya northern folk). Somebody sprayed 'em with car polish....all shiny like. At $1.88 a pound, I left with no maters.

By the time I return to "da house", I got a car load of stuff to carry in. I hurt. Brewed up a pot, take me 2 aspirin an' sit my ass down. Light up a smoke. Company show up. Grandson Tim carry in the remain'n bags. Granddaughter giv'n out hugs, daughter flap'n jaws, son in law says...."what's a spud gun"? Man....I need a break.

Fired up my internet an' got on my Verizon account....logged in ya know. Take me a whole 5 minutes to change my account from 5 gigs to 10 gigs. Now I can watch videos. I was hesitant to make the change, but got to think'n...."ya gotta have innernet Billy Bob". Does it matter that I will be pay'n more? Nope, not really. As long as I am still under my monthy allotted living expenses, I'm fine. Less trips to Walmart will equal out the difference. Damn I spend a lot at Walmart.

Well shoot, that bout covers it. I ain't done a damn thing. Well, I did throw out a bowl of cucumbers, maters an' onions what was stink'n up the fridge. An' a bag of rotten taters. Suckers had dad gum arms on 'em in place of eyes.

Speak'n of throw'n stuff out, I bought me some them cherry turnover thingys from the deli at Walmart. Set 'em on the stove. This morn'n them suckers was covered with itty bitty ants. Got as many as I could off'n two of 'em. That was breakfast......ants an' all.

Laters......

  4. On your Facebook to help with data overage on the videos. On your Facebook go to the little triangle in the upper right corner and go to setting and toward the bottom click on video and turn the slider to off. This way you are only forced to watch videos you actually click on. Have a great day!

    1. Sorry Catahouras, but it seems todays Anony is not one of my regular followers that post comments. I apologize.

      I had found the way to stop the auto-play on Facebook a couple days ago. Now if I can find a way to shut it down on my browser....Firefox.

      An' welcome to Billy Bob's Place.

  6. You also have an Add-ons Manager or something with a similar name depending on your browser. It it you can disable any Flash Players that may be active. That will keep those News videos from eating up your bandwidth and now that you are paying for more you will get to keep more.

  9. Hmmm. Noting you cook...

    So, another reason to consider traveling this direction: There is a Mayo Clinic not far from my park. Ok, it's up in Scotsdale, but that isn't all that far, maybe 30 minutes. If anyone could fix your back I thinking someone there could.

    1. I know you ain't gonna see this.....but, bout 3 or 4 years ago, Mayo throwed Medicare slap out the door. Now ya got me to think'n...."did Mayo reopen the door"?

    2. Although Mayo Clinic provides medical services to Medicare patients, Mayo Clinic doesn't accept assignment from Medicare for professional and physician services. In other words, Mayo Clinic doesn't accept the Medicare-approved payment amount as full payment. Mayo Clinic follows an established fee schedule based on the federal guidelines for Medicare patients, which allows health care organizations to charge up to 15 percent above the Medicare ALLOWABLE fee. You're financially responsible for the portion above the Medicare allowable amount.

      You have said in the past that Medicare pays 100%. What I think you really meant to say was that your medical providers have accepted what medicare pays as full payment for their services. Mayo does not and I thought Medicare only paid 80% of ALLOWABLE. Therefore, Mayo bills $1,150 if Medicare allows $1,000: Medicare pays 80% or $800 then you and/or your Medicare Secondary insurance must pay the $350. difference. I don't know if you consider that reopening the door or that is what you consider "throwed Medicare slap out the door".

      There is also a Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL that you could consider since your close to that one at this time.
