Yeah, it's been months since I last updated, I know. I've been working hard at my bookstore and managing to keep warm. Last weekend was very cold, and I had to keep both of the kerosene heaters on Friday through Sunday. The weather was a bit odd on yesterday morning. It would snow a little bit, then stop when the sun would come out. Not long after that, it snowed a little bit more...

I had just come back from shoveling snow to the side of the driveway at home. Thank goodness it was light and powdery snow!

For anyone who's seen my active and recent tweets on Twitter the past couple of weeks, then you'd already know how busy I've been, in paying attention to politics - supporting Senator Bernie Sanders (specifically some things he said) and bashing Hillary Clinton along with her bestest best friend that he talked about in a televised debate last week.

There's a multitude of reasons why I've been against her and even Jeb Bush and his family - with a fierce passion. Trump? I haven't been able to take him seriously for quite a while, but I've backed off a bit. Why? Because he knows something. Something that the masses of American citizens don't really know or understand, not yet.

That really ought to change this year...

I feel I must express about one of a bunch of things I've discovered, two weeks ago. Something REALLY important, for everyone, most especially in the U.S. that haven't noticed by now. In sincere warning, the following I'm about to share with you will shock you. You might not want to accept or even believe it but it's true. It really is.

This is going to be a long post, I can feel it. )

He goes by the nickname D-Trix, and his main channel is TheDominicShow. He's also a really cool breakdancer, and his group, Quest Crew are on this dancing competition. I haven't watched the show, but to know they're on MTV is big. Epic big.

If you know D-Trix and his crew, go here to vote for them! http://www.mtv.com/shows/dance_crew/widget/abdcvote/

So, who would Marley's daddy be? XD Ryan Higa: Mom to his dogs, and towards some of his lamps (fans) on Twitter.

Since there's no way anyone can replace my mom, because she's awesome. Ryan's just my Twitter mom. :'D

One of my favorites of the older videos, when he filmed a Q&A with his best friend Sean:

Did you get to see a bunch of fireworks? Did you spend good quality time with your loved ones? Did you have a BBQ dinner cookout? See any good movies?

I had to work during the day, though I did do pretty well on book sales. Could have earned more if there were people interested in my plants and garden statues, but oh well...

I'm still pleased with how good the photos of them came out, especially when making them look even gorgeous and in high quality after some slight touches on the photobucket editor. I'll share some and leave a link to my Gallery page in a bit.

Back to the rest of how my 4th of July went. For dinner, my family and I had cheeseburgers with lettuce and tomato with hash browns. For desert, we had strawberry crème pie! Mmmmm, so good...

Later on into the evening, Mom and I went over to our friend Bob's house to play a few board games. On the way there, we saw a firework after crossing the bridge! Cool. Board gaming was fun. I ALMOST won at Alhambra that night! Everything in my city was connected by a badass 17 point bordering, and I had the most green tiles (and the most blue at the end, it's 18 points). Bob had the most purple and a 15 pointer border, and he beat me by one point. Wow, what a game! It was my longest ever wall, and Mom's wall was just as long.

We also played 2 games of Ugh, and a game of Splendor. Geez, our friend Rich is really good at Splendor! Mom and I will have to start taking more chances around him from now on. Oh, and in the background, Bob's neighbors were lighting fireworks. We could hear all the whistling and popping noises. :)

And now, for the awesome plant photos... )

Sometime later on I'll upload a new plant vlog on my main variety channel.

First things first; yeeeep, I'm still alive! I managed to catch up with some of you on my F-list! Next week, I'll try to say hi to some more of you.

I figured I wasn't the only one hyped up about the uber awesome FF7 remake. *flail, fail, flail!* It's happening! It's actually happening!! I remember first reading about a 3D remake about this ages ago, in a Game Informer magazine. That was just trolly of Square Enix to just show dangle the concept over us like that, IMO.

Now, it thrills me that it's becoming a reality. Woohoo! \o/

I have NO IDEA when I'll get a PS4! (A Nintendo 3DS is the next big thing to save up for anyway, once I'm successful in getting a hang drum.) Video Gaming wise, I've only done a little DS gaming over the weekend.

Still board gaming, of course. It's amazing that more people have visited the meetup group. I think there's one or two new regulars or semi-regulars. That's awesome.

Haha, last Friday, I almost pulled a Ryan Higa with Mom. Though, Tri-ominos is hard for me to win and get lucky at... The golden horseshoe was with me during all the other games. We're especially competitive when playing Splendor. It's one of our most favorite warm-up games.

Ugh has proven to be a lot of fun too. What's amazing about that press your luck card game is this; there are times when it gets brutal! You may happen to draw a few nice various colored cards with high point values on one turn, only to draw a minus 3 Ugh card the next, leading to discarding your whole face up pile of point cards. (If the Ugh card is the first one you take from the draw pile, you get to keep that as a consolation prize. At scoring time, the end of the game, each Ugh is 3 points each.)

The rest of what's going on with me will go under cuts.

Vlogging, NEW finished instrumental, NEW video series... )
