Progressive Snapshot

Journey of 6 month driving surveillance ended and returned the device back to insurance company. – They are claiming I got a discount but realized have no way to prove back.. ๐Ÿ™‚

The renewal rate actually came in about the same price when I signed this up (which had the participation discount) but made me wonder whether this was worth of it….and also triggered me to think of total switch to Pay Per Mile companies…

Thanks to this endless Pandemic and magical YouTube algorithm, I have came to try unusual things I hardly done before… (and Amazon wins as I end up ordering some tools….)

Starting with one floor mat deep cleaning per day at shower time while waiting for handy steamer to arrive..:)

You break it, we fix it – lived the life of ‘Bob the Builder’ today

– PC reinstall with USB media : found no USB thumb drive at the world of Cloud, so had to order Amazon’s same day delivery and made the USB repair/installation media and recovered a PC which turned to black screen upon every boot

As our gentleman in the house -who never sits straight while putting more weights on chairs- have more time at home with various chairs because of Pandemic, this meant my chair repairing skill goes beyond the wood chair repair

– Plastic chair with broken back: after failed attempt with Super glue, went to epoxy glue. As the broken part was highly visible part of chair, had to go with multiple sanding after the glue and spraying paint and coating with Polyurethane.

– Bent Steel folding chair with disjointed horizon bar: so after using hammer and bring back the bent part, the question was whether I am willing to go into welding (which I don’t have any tools…) so settled with steel epoxy…

– Office chair: This is the still one of the mystery need to solve – how can you rock the rolling office chair?! But our gentleman must have showed that skill before he broke the chair. Similarly my first attempt with Super glue didn’t last long, so attempted with epoxy glue, but as this doesn’t have much visibility I am not willing to go into sanding/coloring part..

All in all, total four items in my household got the treatment, Home Depot and Amazon was the winner and I enjoyed smells from various chemicals (and now I understand why they check the birth date when I purchased the spray can..)


Shortage & Pandemic

Stumbled into this message at office (I make 1-2 hours visit to office on Thursdays to make sure I have stable connection..) upon trying to pick my favorite Ginger Ale from office fridge…. Another shortage thanks to Pandemic, Wipes, Hand Sanitizer, Masks, Toilet Tissues, Woods, and now Aluminum Cans?

Aluminum can shortage: Beer, soda companies can’t keep up with demand (

Few years ago, WFH meant “I can not come to the meeting – and maybe or may not be even reachable”, while that is now “I am reachable and work 24 hours” ๐Ÿ™‚ Thought Door Dash, Grubhub, Instacart kind of business’ going away is a matter of time, but they are flourishing.. Amazon slashed restaurant delivery and their PrimeNow was not in a good shape but now it is essential part of Amazon’s business..

Now Home Depot & Lowe’s are running high and price of wood has rocketed up..

Pandemic is so epic!!

Another farewell to old memory – Reebok Blacktop Bag.. like other highschoolers in 90s I also enjoyed the ‘fashion’ of using basketball bag as school bag and has been a good utility bag afterwards.. ๐Ÿ™‚ Maybe the most recently best use of this bag was using as a hand-carry in a flight when I flied over to Detroit from Seoul in 2005 with full pack of heavy books.. ๐Ÿ™‚ (At then you don’t have to weight the hand-carry if it doesn’t look ‘fishy.’.:) so had to pretend this is not heavy although my shoulder was screaming… ๐Ÿ™‚



iHealth KN95 Face Mask


Interestingly Wyze the manufacturer of Wyze cam started to sell KN95 masks, so I had no idea but bought it. and now I realize KN is Chinese Standard (I thought this was a KF.. Korean Standard)

So started with a little concern that quality report/certificate being in Chinese ๐Ÿ™‚ but at the same time part of my thought was “This is the masks people use at the ‘origin'(?) of this- or to be exact where this first started” so all of sudden gave me a good confidence – maybe another ‘halo effect’? ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes I am the stupid customer still prefer to pick Haagen Dazs than others because of the brand name being German… ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyhow – good mask.. especially for people like me who have a large head/face ๐Ÿ™‚ – I have a big head and have to have bigger than 7 1/2 for fitted cap…

Old Note from Orientation Day at Business School


Happen to found an old note I took during MBA orientation session back in Ann Arbor like 15 years ago, while cleaning up the shelf.. – This note even has a coffee cup mark ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t even recall what the professor’s name was (because I recall he was mentioning he is moving to Tuck school after the orientation session) but this notes stroke me for a min. especially the first line of “Live a dream”

Making me think maybe the most important thing at business school is already learned at orientation days

Baby James of TheOdd1sOut


Every year, the little one at my home has always asked something unexpected as a birthday gift. (Last year he wanted to go to ski on no school Monday, so I had to take a day off and spent whole day of skiing in mid March…)

This year, he said he wanted some weird dolls from weirdly named site of TheOdd1sOut. Not surprising but what?!!

These are the Baby James dolls I bought for him at this boy’s 11th birthday gift ๐Ÿ™‚ – character of YouTube cartoonist.. (one more still coming – delayed due to corona..)

All in all, I learned a new thing from him again – power of content on YouTube and also came to know one thing he watches regularly at YouTube..
