The Spray Bombed Van

Some dolt painted space creatures on this van at the local grocer. Nice work, asswipes! Anyway, I went to the grocer for a few items and came out with much more which is usually what happens. I was pleasantly surprised to find that many of those very hot items including water and bun wad are returning to ‘normal’ levels.

Translation: people are stopping the freaking out. The one thing that honestly speaking pisses me off is how many people were not wearing masks! Why the hell would a mother with four to six-year-old children take her babies in this store with zero masks on them, or herself! She’s a very stupid woman, I’m not sorry for saying this either.

As I have said in this space so many times – Common Sense took a permanent holiday from America a long time ago.

The Valley of Fire

Here are three oldies from a day trip to the Valley of Fire State Park about two years ago. After using the much newer and mirror-less Nikon Z6 camera for a few months now (interrupted by corona) it’s become even clearer to me how much better the photos coming from the Z6 are over the old D3300 body. I’d love to get back up there for another set of photos when this corona situation is over. I can’t even imagine the sorrow so many are dealing with now.

Stuff Your Block Editor!

This morning my Admin panel informed me that WordPress is now going to shove that stupid block editor down my throat and yours too. Bullchit. I tried it when it was released about eighteen months ago, no thank you! There is nothing wrong with the Legacy editor.

After reviewing the description, we do have the option to opt-out which honestly amazes me. That WordPress could be so kind! Who’d a thunk? I still stand by my statement that the strong sense of community here is the only thing keeping me on WordPress.com.

Desert Spoon

The Desert Spoon is a great choice for accenting your home landscape or around businesses. The home I owned here with the ex had several of these plants around the property. I recommend wearing very thick gloves and shirts when pruning the plant as its thorns are many and very close together, ouch!

The Oleanders

This flower I do know! I’ve mentioned before recently that I do not like these damn flowers as they are toxic to pets, and make a hell of a mess in my backyard when the flowers finally croak.

Gladly, my neighbor very recently cut them down along our common border, or block wall actually as that is what we use here instead of chain fences. I’m so grateful that I let him use my rubbish bin to help him get that crap out of his backyard that much faster! Thank you, neighbor!

Pigs

A fine memory from my days working at a U Haul location. This jerk rented two units next to each other and proceeded to alter the electric wiring and make other alterations to the units, in total breach of his signed contract. Some people should never breed.

Mexican Fast Food

This is an older photo from about four years ago, taken along Las Vegas Boulevard near the northern end of the Las Vegas Strip. That Bonanza gift shop is still there today with its 99 cent souvenirs. Would you like to have a 99 cent souvenir? I didn’t think so but I’ll try some food.

Local Streets

Local yes, but not at all close to my home! just some random photos from yesterday where I came upon the fun bunch of geese, goslings, and ducks. Did I ever mention that I love ducks?

You’ll not see this in Michigan! ❤️

It’s My Policy

Some of you are aware of my strict no-follow policy pertaining to businesses. Undoubtedly, some find this rather odd but that is my very strict policy as the administrator of this insignificant blog. Why? It’s all about the money. I find it bothersome that businesses use other’s blogs to draw customers to their own websites to make money at their expense.

No thank you, not at my expense. I have begun leaving comments on specific business blogs requesting that they refrain from attempting to follow LVPB. There are other methods to stop them but I really don’t want to have to resort to those measures. Sorry, but I’m not sorry, you businesses continually attempt to follow, not on my dime. Grub for money elsewhere.

Always The Road Work

Since it never snows in the valley except for a very tiny bit of flurries, our road crews can work all year round which should mean they get things done more quickly? Not the case, this area has been under repairs for several weeks now. Why?

It’s the same thing with the new freeway overpasses over the ninety-five freeway north of me a few miles, ongoing for a few years now. Again, why? I’m no road engineer but have a brain that sees something odd. Perhaps it’s all about job security?
