Why No iPhone 15 for Me

In the third week of September 2023, the iPhone 15 series came out and available to those that pre-ordered it. I am sure that right now, I could go into an Apple Store, and buy the latest and greatest of iPhones. However, I will not be doing that, and there are a few reasons as to why not. In reality, I wouldn’t mind having the newest, but it is not a necessity. With that said, I have to be a big boy, and tell myself NO! Read more “Why No iPhone 15 for Me”

Wrangler Cargo Pants

A couple of weeks ago, I ordered a pair of Wrangler Cargo Pants from Amazon. The reason for this is I wanted pants with more pockets. One of the reasons of this is my phone goes in one of my pockets, and nothing else. Considering I don’t put anything valuable in the back pockets – this left me with one pocket left for everything else. This forced me to have to go in and out of my back pack just to do basic errands. Read more “Wrangler Cargo Pants”

Changes in Fasting Again

For those that know me, or read my blog, you would know that I was fasting 2 times a week. Before my fasting, I weighed 290lbs. When I was weighed after fasting back in early May 2023, I now weigh 273lbs which is a 17lb difference. While I am proud of myself, I want to lose more weight. With that being said, I am deciding on fasting from 2 days a week to 3 days a week. Obviously, I will still eat 4 days a week, but my days of fasting will be Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. This is obviously a 50% increase in the number of days, but I am hoping to lose an average of 2.5lbs a week. I still do not have a scale, so I can not see my progress, but I will hope to continue one, and make it work out. Read more “Changes in Fasting Again”


If I was you, I would avoid this company as if they were the plague. I bought 5 cargo pants from them. I ordered priority shipping. It took them more than 2 weeks to get to me, and when they got to me, the pants were slightly tight (willing to accept), and a zipper broke. When I wrote to them requesting an RMA and stated my two problems, I got an email showing me the size chart which does not address the broken zipper. They offered to mail another pair of pants, but if they can’t do quality control on their items before they shipped, I still requested for an RMA. I waited for almost a week before writing this post.

On July 1, 2023 – I acquired¬†fsp.zip as a domain. This website is a bit pricey because it is a “premium” domain. I am guessing the premium part is the short domain name. However, it is obviously a price I was willing to pay. I will be able to cover the annual registrar fee (as long as it is about where it’s at now), and since my hosting company supports unlimited domains, this is an easy acquisition.¬† Read more “ZIP It Up”

How I’ll Do Taxes

Earlier today, I added a new website to my collection of things that most people probably don’t read. This site is in my Imagination Domain, and it is what if I would do taxes. For those that are curious, I am a believer in enacting a tiered sales tax system. This will mean that most things will have a high tax in replacement of income and property taxes. For those that wish to read more about my do so by going to https://tax.fsp.im. The good thing about this tax system is it minimizes the impact on the poor.

RIP One iPod

I have two iPods which I make use of them. I don’t want my iPhone to constantly play music, as that would demand much more battery, and will be inconvenient in the few times that I might get a phone call. With that in mind, the iPods were obviously used to play Pandora. I just plugged my iPod into electricity, and a speaker (since iPods have a 3.5mm jack). Apple stopped producing iPods last year, and with that in mind, the likelihood that there are any left is none.

Changes in Fasting

Mid last week, I decided to change the days I will be fasting to match more in line with my lifestyle, and things that needs to be done. The days are going from Monday and Thursday to Tuesday and Friday. Nothing else changes. I still won’t eat dinner on those two days. On a more positive note, I am not suffering from headaches with fasting. Obviously, I will still feel hungry, but this should resolve itself soon enough. Instead of me eating, I will drink water to fill my stomach. Read more “Changes in Fasting”

Trying a New Lifestyle

As some who visited my personal site may know – I am extremely overweight. I am 290lbs (132kg), and stand at 6′ (188cm). Some may say just eat less, but in most cases, I will eat at most is 2 meals. However, I will be doing something close. I have chosen to try to do intermittent fasting. There are a few options – all with the same concept. I am choosing to eat 5 days, and not eat 2 non-consecutive days. In my instance, I will be closing Monday, and Thursday. These days are also when I am most active as I am going to check my mailbox on those days.
