Loosing Your Best Friend

Every time I see someone I know posting about loosing their pet ... I really feel for them. I went through that on April 3 ... I am not still over that. I don't think I will ever get over it.

I draw Pompom every day to make sure I remember. I write message to Pompom everyday to make sure he knows what he meant to me.

You don’t get over it
– You just get through it.
You don’t get by it
– because you can’t get around it.
It doesn’t get better
– it just gets different.
Everyday
– Grief puts on a new face.

Would you like to know what your customer thinks?

After you finish your customer support call, or finish your service at customer site, wouldn't you like to know hat your customer thought about what you have done? Instant feed back ... When you ride an UBER, they will send you a quick feedback form you can fill out.

Why don't you do the same. PSP has created an Internet system just design to do that. When you finish your job, just login to the website and fill out the simple form. The system will send an email with a link to quick survey like you see above. Customer will fill it up in sew seconds and submit it. People including you and your manager will get a copy of the feedback result.

Wouldn't that be nice? Now you have it. Just ask PSP.

Eat-Out / Eat-in so what is Eat-Middle?

Those are words used in Japan to describe meals.

Eat-Out ... Meals you eat at restaurant (outside of the home)
Eat-in ... Meals you prepare and eat at home.
Eat-Middle ... It is a take out meal you buy and eat at home.

Thanks to food delivery services, there are more people eat-middle or eat restaurant prepared meal at home. There are many restaurants in Japan that is design for take out only. In addition to restaurants, supermarkets and convenience stores sell prepared meals.

In the US, there are take outs but they are not really design to replace home made meals. I am sure as time goes on, there will be more restaurants and stores design to cater to people who would like to eat-middle.

Factoria Mall is Redeveloping

One of my favorite restaurants in Factoria / Bellevue closed its for last Friday. Also I saw a sign said Factoria Safeway is going out of business.

https://www.bellevuereporter.com/news/factoria-mall-owners-submit-application-to-redevelop-property/

I read on the news that "Factoria Mall owners submit application to redevelop property" The proposed build-out would create 685 housing units and add 151,000 square feet to the mall.

This is a redevelopment ... I kind of think they missed the boat. The real estate boom is over. If they start now, by the time it is done, there will be big empty spots.

Price is Based on The Target.

I bought a range finder for my golf. This range finder show how far to your target and shows the angle to the target. Showing the angle is not allowed in the completion but it is okay for a regular play. I paid less than $80 for this range finder and it works fine.

Most golfers know rage finders usually costs over $200 to $500 depending on the feature and the brand. So, why is this range finder so cheap. Because it is not a golf range finder ... It was design for hunting. (I do not hunt.)

This hunting rage finder does everything golf range finders do. It is just marketed differently. I guess hunters are more cost conscious. There are other products in the market that priced different depending on the target market.

I made this site for me ...

I created a bulletin board system for me to post message in heaven.
I use this board to post a message every morning to Pompom.

Please feel free to use it yourself. There are two functions of this bulletin board that you should know. (1) It is SSL secured. That means whatever you write is encrypted and cannot be seen by others. (2) Whatever you write will not be save anywhere. I have no access to what you write.

You might say, this site is secure but has no function. For people who need to post message in heaven, the message is posted in heaven. I think that is good enough. At least, it is good enough for me. For last 6 months, I left a message every day to my love ones in heaven.

Cash Cards

This is good because they are not unsecured credit cards.
You cannot spend more than what you have, but it is as secure as credit cards.
There are many people who do not have any bank account nor any credit card. In America, it is very difficult to build "CREDIT HISTORY" if you do not have job or if you are new to this country.

For those trying to build CREDIT, many people are turning to Cash Cards like you see in this picture. I am all for people trying to build their lives rather than depending on hand outs. I wish them well.

I could not draw this picture until now.

This drawing is based on the image I took of Pompom few hours before I put him to sleep. He loos so happy because I gave him a whole cheese pizza. He is looking at me saying "Is this for me???"

He could not swallow much then. I chewed pizza and gave him. He ate more than he usually do. He was happy. I am not good at good byes. I never thought I had to put him to sleep. I still feel if I did the right thing. Did I do everything I can for him?

I will not forget 15 years I had with him. People ask me if I am ready for another one. I don't think I can go through this again ... So my answer is "NO" at least "NOT YET".

I am sorry if this post made you sad. It has been 6 months ... Pompom is here pushing me live strong until the day I meet him again.

Worthless Report

I read this article ethics morning.

Half of U.S. Uber drivers are earning less than $10 an hour, according to a new study reported by Recode. The median hourly pay for drivers is $14.73 — but when taking into account an estimate of $5 for expenses like gas and insurance — that figure drops to $9.73 per hour. Gig economy jobs continue to grow in popularity in the U.S., accounting for at least 5% of the workforce. • Here’s what people are saying.

People has choice not to be Uber driver. All they have todo is "quit" ... but they do not. So what is this article is suggesting is for Uber to pay more to the driver. Which caused the Uber rate to go up. That makes Uber less attractive. that causes less revenue for drivers.

It is a complete useless study and report. I rather see one of the reporter to become an Uber driver and see how much he/she makes. That will be a study and report.

https://www.recode.net/2018/10/2/17924628/uber-drivers-make-hourly-expenses

PS: How do you calculate hourly wages for Uber drivers? They only get paid when they are taking someone or something to somewhere. There are idoling tome. How do you count for that?
