Scott’s Life

The last few years.

Work

I haven’t posted much about myself but probably need to tell you about what has been going on. I have been alone since December 2021, the x who I’ve been fighting with over several issues left to go stay with her kids for Christmas and I changed the door code and took her off the alarm so she could not come back.. She had been threatening to move out and when I took her up on the offer she said she could not find a place and wasn’t moving out. This has been going on for a bit more than two years.

A little about her Sandra, we had dated in our 40’s and she decided I needed to find some one who would give me kids. I went to the singles group and dated a few women on and off but the only one I was interested in was dating someone else and didn’t want to have kids.

Sandra and I had kept in touch and were friends on facebook and we were talking and I was thinking of when we dated. She moved in around spring 2013 I think but could be off a year or so. I did not know what I was getting into.. First we ended up with her and kids dogs, four of them! Plus I had my dog. Sandra had a couple of strokes a year or two before moving in and was not the same woman I knew in my 40’s. It was ok the first 2-3 years. Our birthdays are a week apart though she is 5 years older than I am. We the first couple years went and did things for our birthday. One year went to World Wild Life park.

After that it started going down hill. She gave her car to her kids and was still paying the insurance on it and giving them money besides. They have 3 kids and are on welfare, her son inlaw works at a health care place. Sandra use to work there but a patient threw her into a wall and hurt her back before we got back together. She didn’t want to do much towards the end was only getting out bed to cook dinner, watch TV with me a coupe hours and then went to bed again.

Dogs, the oldest one of theirs died with in a year of moving in. We were visiting my family in Colorado. I think at this time my mother was in the nursing home. Her kids were house sitting when the dog died was well over 15 years old. A few years later Sandra found a stray in the yard and let it in. It started peeing all over the house and after 6 months I took it down to the school and let it loose. Her daughter was supposed to find homes for their dogs but never did. Her dogs started peeing all over the house, one would go outside roll in the dirt and then come in and shake dust all over. Another made a whole in the wall to the storage room the size of a large dog door with out the door and scratched up all the doors. I kept threatening to get rid of them and in summer 2021 I opened the back gate until they left while she was visting her kids, babysitting while they went places for 3 weeks. We tried finding a shelter but none would take them. Spring of 2021 my dog Skie forced her way between the back gate and injured her back and became paralyzed and had to be put down.

After I got rid of the kids dogs we were left with Sandras dog which was still peeing round the house even though she had gotten them a cheap dog door in the bedroom patio door frame. My electric bill wen up $40 because of it and I am still trying to kill all the bugs it let in. Her solution was to get dog dypers for her dog. She always started taking her dog with her because she would howl and whine anytime she left with out her. I thought for sure she would leave when I let the dogs go but she said her daughter didn’t care about it so she didn’t either..

2015 My mother passed on from complications of Alzheimer’s, it runs in her family, her mother and 3 of her older siblings died of it. She was 73 when she passed on. My father died of kidney failure in 2019 he was the last of his family and wasn’t taking care of himself . In 2008 we lost his only sister to breast cancer in the spring she was 64. Grandma and grandpa had been in nursing homes for years. Both had diabetes, grandpa had had one leg amputated and was not dong well, he passed on in July 2008 at age 89, grandma didn’t want to live any more and passed in September 2008 at age 90. That was all of dads immediate family and after mom died he didn’t really care any more. After he passed that left me as the oldest in the family, I am 4 and half years older than my first sister I have 3 sisters and 1 brother, 9 nieces, No children. I have one aunt and a Uncle my moms younger siblings left and more cousins than I could count. I am 15 years older than my youngest sister.

Sandra’s mother died of covid in 2020 at age 80. She was the only one in the family I really liked. She has two kids both married, Son has two boys and her daughter a girl and a boy, I think she is expecting again.

I can tell you exactly the last time Sandra and I slept together was when we were staying at my fathers house after his funeral. September 2019 and it had been a year before that the previous time. We were not having sex, we were fighting and it was long pass time for her to go, the longer she was here the more problems she caused. She could not cook dinner with out leaving a big mess, never cleaned up and the house was a disaster. I spent two months cleaning after I got rid of her. I calculate she owes me about 20K which I’m sure I will never get.

$300 DVR PAID $100 (she lost the remote and it is NLA. she also broke the playstation remote and I had to replace it. spilled pop on it.)
$200

$199 toaster oven (she fell and broke the door) I had to buy another.
$200 screens on dining room windows destroyed by guppy the dog
$5000 damage to wall and doors frames by guppy
$10,000 replace carpet
$650 grill damage valves by forcing knobs instead of pushing in on them NLA had to get a new grill
$1500 cleaning and damage to walls, cabinets in kitchen, wear on corners of walls where keep putting hands, instead of using her cane. I don’t think she ever washed her hands though she says she did. Stove, refrigerator, bedroom, head board spilled things. I cleaned the refrigerator 2 times the year before she left and again after.
S80 shower head in master bathroom, cracked because was not lifting head out of holder
$800 microwave destroyed by roaches she let in with dog door and she broke the door frame by jerking on it. I had to hot glue the door frame Lost the small burner cap on my $1500 stove top, I had to spend two days cleaning all the crap she had spilled on it.. $1000 Bug spray, traps

S19,660

She was damaging the brand new dish washer I replaced a couple years ago, kept pulling the bottom rack out crooked and popping the wheels off and had spilled something in the controls I had to fix. She broke two plates, lost some of my good silverware. Lost 2 sets of keys. The last had all my pad lock keys, house and mail box key in a leather folder she had in her purse. I told her she wasn’t getting her stuff back until she found it. That has been 7 months ago and she unfriended me on Facebook and I haven’t heard from her since April.. I’m sure if you ask her I’m the bad guy..

If anyone needs extra large stretchy clothes I have hers.. She was well north of 300 pounds I’m sure. I weigh 217 and shes a lot bigger.

We were never married thank god, because she would have lost her disability money and her pills are well over $300 a month. I have been alone since December 2021. I have a girlfriend but that is another long post..

Product Review

RockAuto, don’t buy from them

I needed an ac compressor for my 2003 F150 gave them the information, it’s a v6 3.6L auto, XLT super cab. They sent me three different compressors over a couple months all wrong, none looked like the compressor in my truck. At the time I got the last one, my father got sick and died. I was out town for an extended time and I missed the short dead line to return it at my cost to ship it back. They would not let me return it for a refund.

I went to O’Rilies, gave them the same information and they gave me the correct part the first time with the same information I had given RockAuto.

Easter

Easter

Matthew 27

Jesus is accused and condemned before Pilate—Barabbas is released—Jesus is mocked, crucified, and buried in the tomb of Joseph of Arimathæa.

1 When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death:

2 And when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered him to aPontius Pilate the governor.

3 ¶ Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,

Saying, I have sinned in that I have abetrayed the innocent bblood. And they said, What is that to us? c see thou to that.

5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went aand bhanged himself.

6 And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.

7 And they took counsel, and bought with them the apotter’s field, to bury bstrangers in.

8 Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day.

9 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the athirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value;

10 And gave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord appointed me.

11 And Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, aThou sayest.

12 And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered anothing.

13 Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee?

14 And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marvelled greatly.

15 Now at that feast the governor was awont to brelease unto the people a prisoner, whom they cwould.

16 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.

17 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?

18 For he knew that for aenvy they had bdelivered him.

19 ¶ When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a adream because of him.

20 But the chief apriests and elders bpersuaded the multitude that they should cask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.

21 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.

22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be acrucified.

23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out athe more, saying, Let him be crucified.

24 ¶ When Pilate saw that he acould prevail nothing, but that rather a btumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this cjust person: see ye to it.

25 Then answered all the people, and said, His ablood be on us, and on our children.

26 ¶ Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had ascourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.

27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the acommon hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.

28 And they stripped him, and put on him a ascarlet robe.

29 ¶ And when they had aplaited a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a breed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!

30 And they aspit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.

31 And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.

32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.

33 And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,

34 ¶ They gave him avinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.

35 And they acrucified him, and bparted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my cgarments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.

36 And sitting down they watched him there;

37 And set up over his head his accusation written, This Is Jesus the King of the Jews.

38 Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.

39 ¶ And they that passed by areviled him, wagging their heads,

40 And saying, Thou that destroyest the atemple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the bSon of God, come down from the cross.

41 Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said,

42 He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.

43 He atrusted in God; let him bdeliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the cSon of God.

44 The thieves also, which were crucified with him, acast the same in his teeth.

45 Now from the sixth hour there was adarkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.

46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, aMy God, my God, why hast thou bforsaken me?

47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for aElias.

48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with avinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.

49 The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.

50 ¶ Jesus, when he had cried again with

aa loud voice, yielded up the ghost.

51 And, behold, the aveil of the temple was brent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did cquake, and the rocks rent;

52 theagraves were opened; and many bbodies of the csaints d which slept e arose,

53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the aholy city, and appeared unto many.

54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

55 And many awomen were there beholding afar off, which followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him:

56 Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and aJoses, and the mother of Zebedee’s children.

57 When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathæa, named aJoseph, who also himself was Jesus’ bdisciple:

58 He went to Pilate, and abegged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.

59 And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,

60 And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great astone to the door of the bsepulchre, and departed.

61 And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting aover against the sepulchre.

62 ¶ Now the next day, that followed the day of the apreparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,

63 Saying, Sir, we remember that that adeceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.

64 Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last aerror shall be worse than the first.

65 Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as ye can.

66 So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.

Matthew 28

Christ the Lord is risen—He appears to many—He has all power in heaven and earth—He sends the Apostles to teach and baptize all nations.

1 a In the end of the b sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.

2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for athe bangel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

3 aHis bcountenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:>

4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.

5 aAnd the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.

6 He is not here: for he is arisen, as he said. Come, see the place where the bLord lay.

7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.

8 And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.

9 ¶ And as they went to tell his disciples, behold,aJesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.

0 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

11 ¶ Now when they were going, behold, some of the awatch came into the city, and bshewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done.

12 And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave alarge money unto the soldiers,

13 Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept.

14 And if this come to the governor’s ears, we will persuade him, and asecure you.

15 So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.

16 ¶ Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.

17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some adoubted.

18 And aJesus came and spake unto them, saying, All bpower is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

19 ¶ Go ye therefore, and ateach all bnations, cbaptizing them in the name of the dFather, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20 aTeaching them to bobserve all things whatsoever I have ccommanded you: and, lo, dI am with you always, even unto the eend of the world. Amen.

Sewing Machine Tips 4-9-21

If you don’t know me I am a Sewing Machine tech for over 30 years. Every now and then as I see the need I will post something to my blog

One of the biggest mistakes I see people making is adjusting machines with the mistaken assumption what is wrong. The main one is the machine is sewing with loops in the thread, there are big loops on the bottom so they tighten the bobbin case. This is the EXACT opposit of fixing the problem.. If you have big loops of thread on the bottom of the fabric you have no upper tension. Most likely it is misthreaded. If you are having problems rethread the machine carefully making sure the thread goes though all thread guides and the tension unit. If that does not fix it, it probably needs service but be sure the thread is between the tension disks and not behind or in front of them.

The only time you need to look at the bobbin case is the bobbin thread is pulling to the top. Most likely the bobbin thread is not in the tension and just pulling up. It is rare the bobbin case needs adjusting, if you need to make adjustments use the upper tension dial that is why it is there! It could be the upper tension is too tight if it is just pulling up a little, loosen the upper tension, lower numbers are lower tension. Typically most mechanical machines sew between 4-5.

Another problem I see is they misthreaded it, pulled the bobbin case out of position, possibly damaging it. Often they move the brackets so there is no play in the bobbin case so it cant come out again but this is wrong. There must be some clearance around the bobbin case for the thread to flow around it. If there is no room it will jam up.

Needles are another source of problems. If the needle is old it gets dull, it should not make a popping noise going in to the fabric. If you hit the plate because you are pulling the fabric or other wise dammage the needle it must be replaced. If you are breaking needles there is a problem. There are all kinds of types of needles, there are special Denim needles which are sharp, Knit needles for knit material, if your having skips on knit material like a t-shirt be sure you change to a knit needle.

If you need your machine you can bring it to me https://scottsworld.info/sewingrepair.html Scott’s Sewing Machine Repair.

Scottsworld 2020

Scottsworld Other than changing the links menu from the side to the top there was not any real major changes. I just updated both my ancestory database and the Henry Woodward Database on the Genealogy pages on 12-30-2020. I was not sure when I had last done it and Roy Arthur Kelly II my cousin had sent me updates on his family.

Scottworld Blog

WordPress made some changes and now automatically updates the plugins. Which is much appreciated, before I was weekly updating plugins more than I was actually blogging which was getting annoying. I logged in today and ran an SEO update and update my theam, which was the first time I’ve logged in to the WordPress app on my website in a couple months now.

Cactus Wren Weather Station

As part of Scottsworld also got the menu change and actually happened on the weather pages first. Forgot both also got some mobile coding so they work well on mobile devices, not that you will see the code and other than it works not notice it either. One change I am not happy about is the National Weather Service made major changes to their radar page, there are no more regional pages so I had to remove the radar graphic from the weather page because it was broken.. This is the new NWS Radar page and this is the NWS Tutorial on the new Radar page..

BTW I am officially a NWS weather spotter now. We are to report things like; tornadoes, storm damage, flooding, less than 1 mile visibility, large amounts of rain, hail and Snow. NWS SKYWARN Storm Spotter Program

Not that we get a lot of those things in Phoenix or even a big monsoon storm in the last couple years. We are down nearly 4 inches of rain for the year and the only real weather news was it was hot for a long time and we broke several heat related records. We were still hitting 100’s and 90’s into October and it did not drop below 80 until well into December. Then it went from 90 to 60’s in one week. I had to put a coat on to put up Christmas decorations because I was cold at 60.. I grew up in Colorado so I know what real cold feels like.

I am also a CoCoRaHS Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow member, I have an official CoCoRaHS Rain Guage mounted on my weather station and the app on my phone to report any type of moisture we receive. Mostly this year I have cleaned dust and dead bugs out of the rain gauge. Blury thing in the corner is my finger.. Have trouble holding the phone and taking photos..

Daylight Savings

Repeal Daylight Savings

Repeal the stupid daylight savings, it does nothing but disrupt sleep patterns which causes accidents and makes it harder to keep track of what time it is in other states. 

How does moving the clock ahead one hour increase the day? It does not, farmers get up at dawn no mater what the time is and the rest of us have regular schedules.

Arizona does not have Daylight Savings and is one of the things I like most about living here. I remember as a kid in Colorado the sun not setting until almost 9 pm because of DST.

DST is like cutting one end of the blanket off and sewing it to the other end and claiming you made the blanket longer. Moving the clock forward 1 hour does not add anytime to the 24 hour day. This is nothing more than big government screwing with our lives and needs to stop. https://www.change.org/p/donald-j-trump-repeal-daylight-savings/dashboard When searching for information I found this site. http://repealdaylightsavings.com/

Need Your Help!

SVP (Singer Viking Pfaff) fired me for working on machines while on covid-19 furlough to make money saying I was working against them.
They were not paying me and I am on unemployment and I was making more money with the Cares act on unemployment than I was working for SVP, but it runs out the end of July 2020.

I found while not working there I really hated working there any way. My co-workers were jerks and corporate was a bunch of lying assholes.
Last year they moved the service center the week I had scheduled PT person Time off 3 months before and then they canceled my vacation with no explanation, and then tried to tell me they didn’t know they were moving the service center to a new location that week until the week before. 19 miles away, I was barely affording driving to work on what they paid 4 miles away. I had scheduled that week off off which was the Myers family reunion in Colorado and they made me miss it, after they had pushed me to schedule my vacation at the beginning of the year. We hadn’t had a meaningful raise in years and they cut all overtime in 2018, I made 36,000
in 2019 almost 10K less than what I was making with over time and well below the national nominal wage. That reminds me they combined Vacation, Sick time and any other time off as Personal Time with the end result we had LESS combined time off and sick time than we had before.

This is my https://scottsworld.info/resume.htm please share it with your contacts. https://scottsworld.info/sewingrepair.html I need your sewing machines to repair for money. I am very good at it and fix mainly older machines others will not work on or do not know how but I can work on pretty much any sewing machine.

Scott’s Sewing Machine Repair

https://scottsworld.info/sewingrepair.html

This is a bit of a FAQ for Scott’s Sewing Machine Repair.

1 I am working out of my house and you can bring repairs to me at 9416 N 38th Ave, I am in a cul-du-sac south of Hatcher with 3 tall palm trees in the front yard. Or to Ultimate Sewing Place at 5138 W. Northern Ave, Glendale, Arizona.

2 I don’t sell sewing machines, see Ultimate Sewing Place.

3 I am not hiring, I don’t get near enough machines to need help. I get on average 2-3 machines a week. Mainly from people sewing masks for Covad. Some bring me old machines because no one else would fix them.

4 They wanted me to come back to work on May 26 but I told them I am getting more money on unemployment than than I do working for SVP. I also got better insurance with unemployment and I am getting some stuff Cigna would not covered fixed. I have 5 prolapsed veins in my legs and they are swollen and red. On 29 May I will be seeing laser Vein Surgeon to have them fixed. Care1 is good. At work we have a high deductible plan which is designed you will never meet the deductible unless you have something catastrophic happen which you have to pay out of your HSA which SVP only contributes about 1/4 of the deductible.. Or it comes out of your pocket. Then last year they went from 100% after the deductible to 70% of the deductible and what came out of our check biweekly paycheck went from $45 to $75. So I am on temporary leave until I get my medical straitened out and they get me a pay increase. Maybe I will go back to work mid to end of July.

5 I don’t sell parts over the phone, if you bring me a repair and I have the part or you get it to me then I will put it in. For the most part stuff like handwheels, knobs, covers and such are not available for older machines and some new ones too. I have some spool pins, bobbin cases, Singer Feather weight parts and Viking 6000 parts and that is about it.

6 Please leave a review on Google if I have fixed your machine

7 Please text me first, I have Robokiller on my Phone that blocks unknown phone numbers so you will end up talking to it unless you text me first and I add you to my contacts. I need your name.

Covad 19

I was furloughed March 23 the day before my 56 birthday for 60 days because SVP Sewing Brands claimed they did not have enough sales to pay me and the driver but kept on the head jerk who ‘s pay would have covered mine and the drivers pay. This even though I have been there 20+ years and longer than any of the others combined,

I don’t miss work at all, I do miss being paid and that is as far as it goes. If I could make a better living doing something else I will. We have not had a cost of living raise since Viking White became SVP . I am paid far below the nominal pay of someone my age. Last year they cut all or overtime, in the last two years I have gone from $43,000 to $36,000. 10-15 years ago it was good money but everything has gone up because the government is inflating the dollar to finance their over spending. Now I barely get by on what I make.

We have mostly been staying home other than to go out for food when we can not have it delivered. Both of us are at risk, she is 5 years older than I. I have allergies which cause issues with my breathing and lungs. I had pneumonia when I was 5 and if I work out and stress my lungs I cough. My allergies make me cough and sneeze, if it grows I am probably allergic to it. I know I’m really allergic to Palo verde pollen which are every where in Phoenix. If I get a cold or flue a cough can hold on for months so getting Covad would be a very bad thing for me.

I have been updating my web skills taking classes from www.udemy.com I earned my HTML5 certification taking a Web Authoring class and started another that would certify me in HTML, CSS and Java Script. I am not near as happy with it. The class is so out of date that the HTML lessons are using font tags! Font has been discontinued since HTML 4.3. CSS styles have replaced font since then and now with HTML5 has taken over the positioning and placement of elements. Responsive web design for sites to display in mobile devices is all about CSS

I put up a page Scott’s Sewing Machine Repair, posted about it on Neighborhood link, facebook and even spent $50 on running Facebook add in the local area. for that I got two people who said they would bring repairs but never showed up. I have had one person bring me a repair from Neighborhood Link from the local area. She rang the door bell and then talked to me from the side walk in front of the house 20 feet away. Even cleaned the machine and case with alcohol wipes before bringing it to me. I appreciate that even though I think it is way over kill. There is no evidence that anyone has got covad 19 from touching a surface.

I can not make a living on 2 repairs a month.. I had another who brought me an old machine referred by a store to me which has been since closed. Or run more adds that were seen by over 10,000 people and only two contacted me and then did not follow through.

I applied for unemployment but in Arizona they only pay $240 a week. We buy food with my significant other’s disability. We can not get married because she would then loose her insurance and then we would be starving to death as my income barely was paying the mortgage which was nearly all of one check, Then my other biweekly check went to paying electricity, water, gas, my cell phone, internet and keeping my truck running. I contacted the mortgage company (Rocket mortage/Quicken Loans) and they have deferred my payments until July. But I have heard I might have to catch up the back payments when I start again which there is no way I can do that. If I am barely paying each month and have no income how am I to catch up in July? I will have to check on that to see if it is true we have to make up back payments.

So how are you, how has the Covad pandemic affected your life?

Menu changes

I have been fiddling with side menu for over a year, was having issues with when it was open it did not scroll with the page and on long pages could not be seen. I recently changed the main page on Cactus Wren to a responsive set up and the side menu in the test page broke the whole set up when opened so it was time to find something else. Cactus Wren with the new menu now will display normally as two columns of content and on mobile devices the right column drops under the left and shows as one long page.

The top menu was deployed there first and now has come to all of the website except the genealogy pages and Woodward pages. For some reason the Woodward pages do not obey the container settings and the menu is all messed up. Still have not figured out the weirdness for that. I suspect maybe something to do with the image back ground which is unique to those pages. The The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding v. 12.2, Scotts ancestors and Captain Henry Woordward’s descendants are a PHP set up like WordPress so they are a different challenges to change.

I have changed my WordPress theam to 2020 which allowed me to have a blue menu header with links. Still investigating on how to do drop down buttons on it like the rest of my site. I found the drop down buttons on WC3schools. I looked at several and there was only one that allowed me to have multiple drop down buttons with different menus some would show the first menu on child buttons and basically just plain text. I had to experiment with their menus until I found this set up.

If you have seen a lot of menu code they often involve styling list items. This has no list for the menu links and no class to style the url links either. I did have the buttons open the main URL but when using it mobile with no mouse it made it difficult to access the drop down menu so I removed the links in the buttons and now they just activate the drop down menu. It is a combination of HTML, CSS and java script to make it work. At first it was not working on the duckduckgo android browser, the buttons did not appear and the links showed on the blue background. I did not change anything and it now is working.. Works on all the browser combinations I have tried.

WordPress has been updated to the latest version. I also made a change of the fonts on the website. I have wordpress showing serif but not the Faustina variable font I picked from Google fonts yet, another change I need to research. I did that after a recent class Udemy html5 class assignment to pick 4 favorite fonts and show them in the assignment.
