Chubby Baker in Orem, which is right next to Provo Utah is my recent discovery of the best place to get your sugar fix! They even have a sign in their window that says they are your ‘sugar dealer’. Oh my… their donuts are delicious… and I don’t even favor donuts! The only donut I tell people I will eat is a Krispy Kreme glazed donut, and ONLY when the RED Hot light is on. But … I just changed my mind! Chubby Baker donuts are so soft and delicious. Their flavors are not your typical donut flavors. Chubby Baker makes regular donuts but their claim to fame are their filled donuts and the fact they are home-made fresh. This bakery is a fusion of Asian and American ingredients and flavors. My filled donut favorites are the following: Hot Guava — Yummy with a touch of heat. Just enough to say...

 I made a Youtube video yesterday to highlight what all is in my Discord server. Discord has made a promo page that lets you upload a Youtube video like the one above. They are trying to help facilitate creators having a space to sell their artwork, music, coaching and more on their platform. They allow you to sell monthly subscriptions to your server as well as products. Here is a link to my promo page.Brandon Jordan Realtor - Discord ServersI have experience with setting up Discords for people, I have that as a service.

So I just wrote about Got a drone / unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) (activerain.com)Here is my first test video of flying around the neighborhood.1st video (youtube.com) 1st drone video I created testing things out.  I do have others that I am posting, I know it will take practice to get down the movement and timing of flying them. The first thing you just try not to crash it but then you start to pick up how to scan and time of moving from left to right in a 360. There were some tips on how to shoot a good video to do a approach to the property and end the video with backing out. Those are all things I will look at with other videos coming up

Got my small UAS drone this last week, so I downloaded the manufacture suggested app, then found there was an additional app to fly it from the manufacture to check if theres restricted zones before I fly.   Then I registered it with the Federal Aviation Administration so I put a label on it with the registration number got my license to fly it from FAA.   Then took the Trust safety test, and applied for the IACRA number and the dropzone account.   Then you have the check with https://www.faa.gov/uas/programs_partnerships/data_exchange FAA-approved UAS Service Supplier (USS) of the Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC; pronounced “lance”) to make sure no one is flying around you.       Then lastDownloading the B4UFly apps. https://twitter.com/FAADroneZone   I f...

Today, while waiting for a pre-settlement walkthrough, I found a fascinating YouTube video. It is comparing prices on Dollar Tree prices and Amazon prices. I was astonished and decided to use this as this week's Philadelphia Steals and Deals. I purchased some of these items myself and was shocked that they worked. As the man in the video suggested, I also made it a point to read the labels. This practice helped me understand the product's compatibility, ensuring I made the right purchase.I have read several articles about Dollar stores. Some say they will be closing. Others say they are just going to be raising prices again. Despite rising prices in today's economy, they are the best buy in town. When I shop there, sometimes I spend $14; other times I pay $38. Where can you buy a six-pa...

Few can remember this.....The Roseann Motel-Restaurant in Searcy AR. was a popular spot and this menu opens and prices the food.  Hamburger 35 cents, coffee 10 cents and it goes on and on with those cheap, cheap prices of food.  It is now for sale on ebay.  If the Historical Society does not have a copy, it should have one. It can be found for just a few days by clicking on ebay.com and search for Roseann Menu and it should pull up.  It does not have a date but the seller says the 1960s.  No signs of the building remain but it was there!We did a blog about this before  https://activerain.com/droplet/G2yDand from there you may be able to back further........

Friday Flags: Jarjura's,  A Waterbury CT Year-Round Farmers MarketThe flag for this week was easy to spot as the wind was blustery. It stood outside a Waterbury CT Landmark at the edge of the parking lot of Jarjura's Farm Market.Established in 1917, this market has been selling wholesale and retail fresh fruits and vegetables all over the State of CT, and in 1993 opened its retail outlet.To this day it is a family run operation, and they stock the retail side with produce regularly and often items not found in some of the larger stores in the area.https://youtu.be/jG8AC0J3xaQThe market is just off the downtown area and astride the highway that traverses through the town.My wife shops here regularly and I will get our garden plants here when the time comes in May. Friday Flags: Jarjura's...

https://youtu.be/t11vz_H66J8Solar Eclipse on April 08 2024 from Marblehead Lighthouse State Park in Ohio. Video 11 of 13. I did a 1 minute video of the Solar Eclipse ever 15 minutes from the beginning till the end. In video 7 during "Totality" where the moon fully covered the sun, the video is 10 minutes long so I could capture the whole Totality. This was a great experience to wittiness and we are thankful we were able to go to Marblehead Ohio where the forecast was mostly clear skies which gave us the best chance to capture the whole Solar Eclipse. Here is video 11 of 13. I hope you enjoy them.

The other day I shared about the Tierra Del Sol Country Club and enjoying the Bar and Grill and one of our page followers brought up the Studio Theatre and she had just bought season tickets.  The Studio Theatre is in the same building as the bar and grill and many make an evening out of dining and a show.  This from their website:ABOUT THE STUDIO THEATRE™:Tierra del Sol was formerly a country club with performances as a backdrop to the outstanding food and impeccable golf course views. It has since transitioned, bringing the performances to the forefront by evolving into a new Black Box Theatre. The Studio Theatre™ is now a flexible theatre with 120 seats and options for Thrust, Round, or Proscenium style seating. The Studio Theatre at Tierra del Sol's season runs from late September t...
