Creating a Supercharged Copilot Progressive WebApp

https://youtu.be/TDFsFI89998
Copilot https://copilot.microsoft.com/ is great but, much better when supercharged.
Watch the video to learn how to pin this supercharged version of Copilot
to your taskbar. Now you can use Copilot to generate Content, Images, and Music.
Music generated via Copilot and the Suno addon. https://sl.bing.net/ez9IqFgD0Bo

Manzano Mountains Adventure

https://youtu.be/y_Ge4LNriO0
The name "Manzano" means "apple tree" in Spanish.
The mountains were named for the apple orchards planted by the
settlers at the nearby town of Manzano.
I used personal knowledge, Copilot, and Pictory.AI in putting this story together.

More Snow?

https://youtube.com/shorts/8ZjYDCJ6Ktc

I'm not sure I should say we are lucky a couple of spindrift snow flurries but damn cold and more wet and miserable.  My daily runs over the last month or so have been really tough.  I don't stay in but dress for the weather and go out.  My only concession is I have a good weather app and try to plan to go in a gap or light rain period. 

I have some good (read, very expensive) running wet weather gear which is very waterproof whilst also being very breathable.  Ordinarily with cheap waterproofs, you get wet from the inside rather than the outside.

It's nice to know that you are still doing your daily runs. Unfortunately as we get older, those important activities seem to go by the wayside. I know there are some of those exercises that I used to do religiously that seem to have gone by the wayside.  Keep it up.

There are some days when it is really hard.  I started going out for regular exercise over 14 years ago.  The intention being to go out every other day, but it is too easy to miss a day (pulled muscle, etc.) and then that was 1 day in three. 

Then I made a pact with myself not to miss a day, early days was run and walk, gradually I was running further than I walked.  The next pact was to run every day and run all of the way no walking for as long.  First target a week, next a month, then 1/4 of a year, 1/2 a year, then a year. 

So far I have achieved that, now it isn't a monthly target but to do it a long as I can, so far I have run every day for 440 days and daily exercise (walk/run) for 3526 days.

Hopefully come May 18 this year I will have done 10 years without missing a day.  But that isn't a given I have things coming up that could put a spanner in the works.

It was my birthday today 73 years young-ish.

Although 2023 saw a drastic cut in my travels due to the end of Avast's
sponsorship of my Security Presentations and lingering Covid fears,
I still managed to visit a few places in 2023

No electricity = No internet
and the effect this has on the modern household

https://youtu.be/A_orsCC8Q44
The effects of power outages on modern households are multifaceted and can have
far-reaching implications across various aspects of our daily life.

We had a power outage some months ago and it was out for over 12 hours if I recall correctly.  The main problem is that the power went out after Midnight to 1 am.  I'm a night owl and was still up and about, so turned on some battery operated lights (I always have a supply of spare batteries on hand), and a battery Radio which hadn't been used for years. One of my neighbours thought I still had power from the battery operated lights I had on. 

Obviously no power for the landline phones or internet though I could have resorted to my mobile in an emergency.

Heating was going to be the main concern (for most) but I have a portable Gas Heater which I broke out.  I also have a Gas Cooker which can at least make a brew or use the oven to heat the kitchen.

I'm pretty well prepared (Army Training) for emergencies like this, even so it was a real pain in backside.  The biggest hassle was getting into a cold bed, when I gave up thinking it might be a quick fix/repair.  So I wore a couple of layers so I was warmer getting in.
