Lake Side Cozy Cabin Next To A Snow Capped Mountain

What’s your favorite activity to do at the beach or lake?

I would love to find a nice cozy cabin or home next to a lake next to a snow capped mountains. I don’t want to have too much snow on the ground level where the cabin is but there mountains can be heavily snow capped and it can be chili and a bit cold where the cabin is but ofcourse there will be a large fireplace and also electric heater to keep things warm and toasty.

Now I don’t want just a log cabin – I want the modern amenities inside the log cabin. Proper nice bedrooms with a big comfy bed. Bathroom with proper running water, shower, toilet and bidet, sink and mirror. High speed internet and a big screen tv. Proper kitchen, stocked to the brim with all sorts of meat & veggies, drinks and goodies. Nice living room with big sofas, lush carpet and yes that big ole fireplace. Some entertainment stuff like a pool table, darts etc.

I can imagine myself just sitting there on a big chair next to the lake, drinking my morning coffee. Enjoying the waters and the view of the snow capped mountains. Drinking coffee and fishing at the lake. Or taking the boat and cruising on the lake. Come the evenings and it’s family time in the living room, burning logs on the fire place keeping the rooms cozy and warm. Golden retriever, 2 cats and a black lab/Dalmatian dog all settling themselves on big pet beds in front of the fireplace, half asleep with the cold breeze outside but us feeling warm and safe inside.

Me cooking up some big old pork chops with grilled veggies while my female partner opens up a bottle of wine. She places a glass for me, while she takes a sip from her glass and goes to pet the fur babies who shower her with love. Food ready, we first serve the pets and the settle down for a nice meal and conversation. Dinner all done, the pets with their bellies full are back on the beds next to the fireplace while she and I cuddle with a blanket on the sofa facing the fireplace before picking a movie to watch.

Nice! I love that kind of life.

My Blog Writing Process & Preferences – Music, Videos Or Quiet?

Tell us about your writing process ‚Äď do you like music or quiet, is there a special place

I wish I had more space to do things but for the moment I usually only use my bedroom as the place that I blog/write from. And although I have a desk (not much larger than a laptop plus mouse and a couple of speakers size, think minimum surface space) which I bought for keeping my pc and then, from 2010 onwards, my laptop on I currently have my work desktop on it. Since it is very large (21 inch screen) and clunky (separate CPU) I do not have much space for anything else other than a coffee mug or maybe a pint glass.

So I have this laptop table that I got as a gift from the office a couple of years ago and I keep it on my bed and I use it for my laptop. So I can type and browse and play music off. But I wish I didn’t have to use it this. If I had more space then I would have a bigger desk or another desk which I can use for this laptop as it isn’t the best thing for my back when I sit like this I tend to have to lean forward and that cause my back to be stiff after a while.

I don’t mind music or even a podcast playing on Youtube. Like perhaps an interview or something like one of the channels that read Reddit stories of Entitled People, Entitled Parents, Choosing Beggers or I Don’t Work Here Lady stories. Those don’t need me to watch the video so I just play them in the background and blog about things. Or I have atheist discussions on Youtube. I don’t like too much noise other than something like this or music so I can’t still easily concentrate on writing.

8 Things Every Responsible Dog Owner Must Know

XX Things Every Responsible Dog Owners Knows (AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Month)

Having a dog in your life is one of the biggest joys you can have. The love of a dog is one of life’s greatest things ever and therefore we should give serious consideration to about the commitment that being a responsible dog owner entails.

Commit for the Long Haul – getting a dog is a commitment. You have to be sure you want a dog and can provide for him/her.

Make Time for Your Dog – dogs will love you no matter what. But they need and deserve that time and attention. Ensure to give it every day.

Provide Proper Identification – get your dog a collar with a name tag with your contact information. Consider micro-chipping your dog as well.

Spay and Neuter РIf you do not have your dog spayed or neutered you may be contributing to the problem of millions of unwanted stray or pound dogs.

Don’t Be a Backyard Breeder – If you choose to breed your dog, be sure to follow the proper protocols and don’t just let the dogs birth in the backyard so you can make some money.

Keep Your Dog Healthy – regular vet visits and checkups. Stay off the foods that the vet says to keep them away from. Always provide plenty of fresh drinking water and an appropriate amount of¬†quality nutrition¬†for your dog. A place of shelter and comfort is also important for your dog’s physical and¬†mental wellness, and exercise is a must.

Train Your Dog Рsome training is always good. Canine etiquette is not just for our benefit.  well-trained dogs are more content because they have been given a sense of structure. A well-behaved and properly socialized dog is less likely to upset people and pets in public places and will be more welcome at gatherings.

Respect Others – don’t let your dog bar throughout the day or worse at night. Pick up after your dog when you take him/her for a walk. Keep your dog on a¬†leash or in a fenced-in yard when outdoors.

If I Could Change The World & All Of Humanity

If you could change the world in one way, what would you do?

Hmmm this is a very interesting question and I guess the most obvious one, for me as I am an atheist, is to make everyone who is religious realize that they believe in one of the biggest lies ever created by man and that they stop falling for this farce. However, that alone will not help to change the current situation. Instead I would make a different wish and that is that every human falls in love with humanity and that they won’t be able to bear any fellow human to ever be in pain or suffering or live in poverty, hunger & illness.

This way I think everyone will work towards the betterment of humanity. The really rich people will donate most of their excess money in millions to the poor. Everyone will be able to live in a nice, safe and cozy house. People will all have enough money to feed themselves and to get medicines and enough to live on. Their kids will never be hungry. Their pets will be safe and happy and cozy inside the homes of their humans too. Because pets are family and they make us humans happy and loved. So yeah they took are safe and sound and humans only love them, feed them and play with them and never hurt them.

So we also won’t have wars or murders or fights or rapes because every human will want to keep other humans safe & happy. With this one wish I think I can help all of humanity and some cats, dogs and other pets.

Rainfall Or Snow: I Like Them Both

Talk about your favorite weather. Do you love rain or sun? Snow? Wind?

Well I do like the rains. I like when it becomes all cool and the weather isn’t hot and sweaty and muggy with a blazing hot sun boiling humanity in the city & state. Which is why I love the monsoon season and even now in September of this year we are still getting heavy rains every few days and it isn’t hot and sweaty. I love to fall asleep to the sound of heavy rainfall and I am still cozy between my sheets.

I have never experienced snow except for a brief period when I was 3 and in the UK. But I imagine I would love snow if I was protected by warm clothing and when I go inside I have the heater on. I like to imagine what it would like to live near a snow capped mountainside, live in a house with a big old fireplace as well as heaters. In my dreams I dream of a futuristic universe where humans live in these advanced homes & spaceships (which internally look a lot like a very comfortable home) that can withstand anything. And so I am on a spaceship that I have landed on this snowy planet in the night while on a mission.

And as it is sleepy time me and my crew have to go to bed. My crew is my wife (a hot nameless blonde) and our pets – my dog Shawny, my cats Chocolate & Lollipop and Junior a dog I took care of for a year. And we have about 4 robots who are there to help us. As night time approaches my wife & I get ready for bed and we call the pets in so they can sleep on this big bed we have kept for them. One by one Shawny, the cats and Junior come to the comfy, soft bed and lie on it, yawning and we make sure to cover them with a thick blanket and keep them warm and cozy.

And ofcourse it is now the turn of my wife & I to get in to our bed and cuddle under the blankets. Nice feeling!

If Someone Just Gave Me A Million Dollars

What would you do if someone gave you one million dollars?

Well 1 million dollars US would be Rs.7,30,65,000.00. If someone gave me one million dollars, I am retiring! I would have enough money in the bank and invest a lot of it and yet life out a comfortable life as long as I don’t go crazy and spend it all. Heck, yeah I am retiring.

I would definitely host a party. The decorations will be something resembling this pic above. I would just have a nice big party and call all my relatives and close friends and make sure that it is a party they will never forget. There will be food and drinks galore. Ot will be a blast.

Then I will settle into a quiet life of living in peace. No excel sheets or Powerpoint presentations or dumb emails to reply to. No meetings or unnecessary conference calls. No having to listen and bear the egos of assholes in corporate offices. And I will enjoy my days with movies & tv shows and music and maybe get a new place to stay. Perhaps get a dog and go for long walks.

My Current Morning Routine In The 8Am To 5Pm Work Week

What is your morning routine?

So since it is my 3rd week of working this morning shift of 8 am to 5 pm, my schedule & routine has changed. I now get up at around 6:30 am. I was setting my alarm for 6 am but after a few days of snoozing the alarm for 30 minutes and then getting outta bed at 6:30, I thought that those 30 minutes of extra sleep is actually very important for me. So I changed the alarm for 6:30 instead.

Ofcourse the next steps are common and will never change. I lift my computer stand (the one you can put on a chair or your bed) and my laptop from the floor where I keep it at night and place it on my bed. Then I switch the laptop on and then go to washroom. I brush my teeth, wash my face and then come back into my bedroom. I wipe my face with a towel and then switch on the wifi router. I go to the kitchen and make a cup of coffee (now sans sugar) and once it is done I bring it to my bedroom.

I place the coffee on the coaster on my table and start checking my personal emails and go to find some Youtube channel & videos to watch. I finish my coffee and then by 7:30 am I switch on my work system and connect to the office VPN. I go to the bathroom if needed. By 8 am I get the trainees of my current batch join the Webex bridge so I can start the training. As per the schedule, I send them for their 30 minute break at 9 am and I go and make my breakfast. I quickly chow down my breakfast and get a second cup of coffee and then come back to my room.

I continue the training from 9:30 am to 1:15 pm and then give them a 45 min lunch break. I then go get my lunch and relax for a few minutes. At 2 pm I continue the training till 4:40 pm. I then make them check on a few things and send them on their merry way.

The Biggest Overhaul In Arsenal’s History??!! What A Joke!

Arsenal FC are the laughing stock of the Premier League and a ridiculous joke. At the very beginning of this transfer window, that just closed late last night, it was stated by sources close to A that this would be the “greatest overhaul in the club’s history”. Really? Let us take a look at the recent comings and goings.

First the signings for players coming in:

Nuno Tavares joins us from Benfica – July 10

Sambi Lokonga signs from Anderlecht – July 19

Ben White joins from Brighton – July 30

Martin Odegaard completes move from Real Madrid – August 20

Aaron Ramsdale signs from Sheffield United – August 20

Takehiro Tomiyasu joins from Bologna – August 31

Now the ones who have left:

End of loan: Dani Ceballos returns to Real Madrid – June 30

End of loan: Mat Ryan returns to Brighton – June 30

End of contract: David Luiz leaves the club – June 30

Loan: Dinos Mavropanos rejoins Stuttgart – June 24

Loan: Matteo Guendouzi joins Marseille – July 6

Loan: William Saliba joins Marseille – July 15

Permanent: Joe Willock signs for Newcastle United – August 13

Loan: Lucas Torreira joins Fiorentina – August 25

Permanent: Willian leaves the club by mutual consent – August 30

Loan: Reiss Nelson joins Feyenoord – August 31

Loan: Alex Runarsson joins OH Leuven – August 31

Loan: Hector Bellerin joins Real Betis – August 31

With the exception of Joe Willock we didn’t really sell anyone. Willian – I’ll grant you that; he did something good for the club. He knew it wasn’t working out for him at the club or for the club and his salary was a stumbling block for the club. So he agreed to tear up his contract and leave for free. David Luiz’s contract ended. Who else have we been able to sell? Out of this list Guendouzi & Torriera look to be gone on permanent deals after the loan period is over. Maybe Bellerin as well.

This club has mismanaged the funds. At 150 million GBP Arsenal spent the most of all clubs in England and we haven’t addressed our weaknesses and are bottom of the league with 3 games played, 9 goals against and 0 goals scored. Shambles FC with a lightweight manager in Arteta and Edu who is crap at signing players. Useless!

Share One Goal You Want To Achieve This Month

I have started the Keto diet that I have been wanting to try for a long time. It’s only the 3rd day but I can feel some difference – as in not a weight loss – but I don’t feel stuffed as much.

I want to go 30 days without adding sugar or taking anything with sugar. It is hard and not eating fruits, which I love, is extremely difficult. Also, I love sweets & chocolate. I am avoiding them like the plague. I have also cut sugar from my coffee and this seemed to be near impossible as I usually add a lot of sugar to my 3-4 cups a day. It will slowly get better but I do miss the taste of sugar.

I also want to lose some weight. Ofcourse that is the whole reason for this. Since a low-calorie diet can produce up to a 2-pound weight loss per week, 10 pounds over 4 weeks seems like an achievable target. It’s important to keep in mind that when on a low-carb diet of any type, you will lose several pounds in the first few days. That’s because your body is dropping water weight.

I want to maintain this diet for the whole of September and see what difference it makes to my body. I hope to keep at it and occasionally I will give you updates. Now I want to try and buy an electronic weighing machine.
