Written Transcript: Podcast Episode #35: Donny’s High Voltage Career Stories-Part A

Hello Everyone!

I sure hope you are having a fabulous day today on your side of the globe!? As I shared before, I have been working on journals, sketchbooks, planners, etc. that are now on Amazon. I am sharing my latest, two podcasts that I released for The Verbally Disastrous Podcast via links for +20 podcast platforms and YouTube. Here is the written transcript for the Verbally Disastrous Podcast Episode #35: Donny’s High Voltage Career Stories- Part A. I know some terms are technical. Therefore, I am offering the written/audio version of the transcript.

Ladies, gentlemen, and disappointments. We are coming to you live from the woman caves in New York and Connecticut. My name is Leslie and my name is Melissa and we are Verbally Disastrous.

Hello everyone! This is your host Leslie Jasper of the Verbally Disastrous Podcast that can be found on over 20 podcast platforms, including YouTube. For this episode, I decided to bring my really good friend who has been an electrician- 40 years. Retired for ten. His name is Donny Raffa. He volunteered to sit with me over the phone and talk about his career as a high voltage electrical splicer. In New York, of course. So, we’ve known each other since pretty much I topped out and became a journeywoman around 2001 is how long I’ve known him. Actually, it might. It might have been more in the 90’s too. I’m just going to say it’s at least a 20/over 20-year friendship. So, he’s working in the garage working on grapes. Taking the stems and the leaves off of them because this is the season where he gets his harvest of grapes. I guess he said he had 50 pounds of grapes that he is processing and getting them ready so that they can ferment over the next year and then they will belong to the batch of wine for next year. So, he does a perpetual process. He enjoys it and it gives him something to do. So, because of that, I was finally able to nail him where he’s sitting still because he likes to keep himself busy. So, I was able to get him to sit down and discuss with
02:00
me about his lifetime career as a splicer. Because the majority of his career, he was a high voltage splicer. So, I’m introducing Donny in the garage. Now he’s sitting in these wooden chairs that have some history to them. He said they give characters to the story. So, therefore, I’m going to leave it in. If people have an issue with that, I’ll have him come back on. We’ll schedule another time and then he can share some more stories ’cause I’m sure there’s 40 years of stories. There’s plenty more than what he shared in these episodes. So now I have part A. This is the first half of the discussion where I bring him in while he’s busy working in his garage. So, let’s check it out. Now, I’m introducing my longtime pal for what 20? 20 years? 25? 20 years. His name is Donny. He’s a retired high voltage splicer slash electrician. Which one do you identify with more? Being an electrician or more so the specialty is the high voltage splicing? Splicer. I sucked as an electrician. What
03:12
did you say? I sucked as an electrician. A high voltage splicer it. It’s much better. Is there a reason for? You enjoyed it more? So then it was more rewarding whereas it sounds like you don’t like doing other pieces of the electrical. A lot of people don’t realize being an interior wireman is anything from low voltage to high voltage. I don’t think I ever did ‘switchin and pluggin’. No, you never did? If I did. No. Years ago. Like I don’t know. I’ve retired now like 10 years. You’ve been retired 10 years now? It’ll be 10 years. Well, February. Wow, and he’s enjoying a Local #3 pension and making the best. He’s over here probably multitasking while he’s talking to me. Taking the stems off grapes right? For that process? Right now I’m getting 20 cases of grapes ready for for wine. I got to see the last batch. Now, at what age and year did you join the Union and become an apprentice? 1979. Let’s see; I was 21. How long was your apprenticeship? Because mine was in the late 90s, it was five and a half years. Four years. Okay. Now, why did you join the electrician’s union? What prompted you to do that? Don’t you come from a family of plumbers? Plumbers. My father was a plumber. My uncle was a plumber. I took the plumber’s test and I got into the plumber’s. But I also applied for college and I went to college instead.
05:01
And they said I can still become a plumber anytime I want. So, when I got out, I tried. I wanted to weld because I went to welding school in Texas. I didn’t know that. Yeah, so wanted to weld. I wanted to go to the fitters. I took the Fitter’s Test. Plumber’s test. No, I’m sorry. Took the Fitter’s test. I took the Electrical test. The Fitter’s messed up on their test. Which is all the same test anyway right. They messed up or you messed up? How did they mess up? You’re saying as far as releasing the test? What’s that? They didn’t give me all the parts for the test. They didn’t give you. When they were proctoring the exam, they didn’t give out all the components of the required exam? Yeah. My father said, “well, I can get you in the Electrican’s”. Okay, we’ll do that. Your father, by the way (rest in peace) he was an awesome man. I always appreciated him. When I would see him and he used to call, he used to call me, ‘his idol’. Which I always thought that was funny ’cause I was thinking, ‘you’re way cooler than me’ but go ahead now. Your father and your brother are plumbers? My father, my brother are plumbers. Yep. Yep. Did he end up becoming a contractor? My brother or my father? Either one. My father actually was a delegate. Not a delegate but he did the minutes. What do you call that? Is it a treasurer? Somebody is in charge of the finances? He was also a treasurer but he did that as well. He might have been a shop stewart, like you’re saying the meeting minutes. The Union meeting minutes. Always a superintendent. Superintendent. Okay, so he was manpower. Manpower yup. Did he transition from being with the tools, after say 10 years, and then become supervision? Yeah, he was also in Korea as a plumber. Really? Oh, that’s how he started out in the military?
07:00
Yep yep. Ah. So, was he in the Seabees? He was in the plumber’s before he went into the Army. Oh, we went in the Army. Okay. Then he got called into the Army. He was doing the hospitals. Okay. In Korea, and actually, there’s still there I heard. I hear a chair in the background. I don’t know if that’s gonna. That’s because I’m just 350 pounds.
07:31
Of all, all muscle. My ass makes noise like that and I got no ass. It’s why the pants are always falling around. Johnny’s got the same problem. It’s like I always want him to wear a belt and then he’s just like, “nah, I’m good”. The minute he bends over, plumber’s crack. I don’t have any belts. I got to put suspenders on my underwear.
07:59
Yes, my name is Don Raffa.
08:05
At what point in your career did you decide to get into high voltage splicing? When I was a 4th year apprentice, I was a pimp for a couple of splicers over at IBM in Yorktown. You said a pimp? I was a pimp. Yeah. A pimp is a spicer’s helper. Oh no way. I didn’t know that. Yeah, you are my pimp. Oh yes, I was your pimp for quite, quite a while. Where does that term come from?
08:35
I don’t know. Did I make it up? No, probably not.
08:41
Everybody had to sign in. Now, this was back before the the hip hop world came around and you had the pimps. But no. Pimp is probably when you’re referencing the street life. Someone that helps me do what I’m doing.
09:00
They wear a fur coat? Driving a Cadillac? Just a top hat. Just a top. Drop top.
09:12
1984- I was doing it. We’re doing work at IBM Yorktown and they were doing a lot of lead work. Lead work always. I always like lead work because of my father. I learned pouring lead with my father as a plumber. Okay. Right. So, it came to me. So, I mentioned to the guys, “hey listen. If they have a class, I’m taking it”. Yep. So they had a class as soon as I topped out in 1984. That’s a lucky thing. A lucky break now. That’s good.
09:49
So the the high voltage class was theory and application, right? All together it was four years. How long was the theory? Hands on in the school was three years. Hands on is 3 years and the theory where you sitting in the class is one year of the four years? You’re sitting in the class with hands on, but you’re building splices right. Okay, so it’s more practicing in the classroom and then once you get into the last three years, it’s on-the-job training? Well no. We’re spicing in the class room for three years. Okay, so it was all within the classroom. At what point did you go out to the field? Probably the last year of school. How did your first time go once it was game time and you had to go into the manhole for your first time? I felt so confident, it was unbelievable. Really? Every time I went into man hole, I felt confident. Not competent. Confident. Confident. Not competent. So you’re saying that being confident got over any kind of fear? I had no fear. No fear. Which is important when you’re potentially what kind of voltage? Let the audience know what kind of voltage is in the pit? Anywhere between 5,000-35,000 I worked with. 35,000 volts?
11:17
Yeah, for the people who don’t know what that is. Yeah, 35,000 volts. How do you graduate? What’s your means of graduating? From school? Yeah. Make sure all your joints didn’t blow up and the teachers were happy at what you did, what you learned. Explain what a joint is for a person who has no idea what that means and it’s not something you smoke. Well hopefully, you don’t want it to smoke. Of course, I’m sorry, it’s splices. Okay, it’s a connection for the average person. It’s a connection between the two wires joining them together. It could be it be soldered, high pressed. There’s different ways of doing it. Now lead. Lead is an old way of doing it. Or is it a new way? The old cable used to be lead. The outside jacket used to be lead. Ahhh, Okay. PPR- now it’s a rubber. Right, the insulation is rubber. It used to be oil paper. Now it’s PPR or a rubber insulation. They don’t do what they used to do years ago. It was joints called, it was connectors or splices called potheads and they were also lead. Which was, for some, it could be hard, you know. But for me they came easy. Now would you say that, going away from the lead splicing, Which one do you think is better mechanically? I think the lead is.
12:53
But the problem with it is it costs more? It costs more and you have to train the people, right? There’s other stuff now that they’re not even training people. Oh. The contractors are just going out there and oh okay. I’ll send this guy out with the instructions. If he can do it, fine. Which is not a good thing because if they blow up. It could be a time bomb in there, even if it didn’t go off immediately. Now, what’s your funniest high voltage splicing story? If you have a couple of them, you can share them, of course.
13:32
I was working and I forget the names and I’m glad it did because maybe I shouldn’t say their names. I was at. I was on one job.
13:45
Westchester Community College and it was a beautiful night and I was talking to the guy on top of the man hole. I was in the man hole about 15 feet down. All of a sudden, I stopped talking to him because I was concentrating on what I was doing. My neck started getting wet. Why is my neck wet?
14:06
I look up. The guy is sound asleep. Drooling all over my neck. No! He’s outside the manhole like leaned into the hole with his face exposed to where he’s dripping on your neck? My neck was soaking wet.
14:23
Is it safe to say that this unidentified person was not the best type of worker? Or was he just tired? It was at the end of the night. I probably would have done the same thing, but I wouldn’t be spitting on the guy. You go somewhere and lay low, say in the back of the van, right? I tied a string around his leg and told him to lean against van.
14:47
I’ll tug on his leg. So, you’d use the string to call help? Did that work? Did you have to do that? Yeah, I did it.
14:58
I knew I was gonna be down there a couple more hours so. Wow. Now the longest splicing job that you’ve ever had to do where you had to stay on the job. You couldn’t leave and go home to go rest was how long? 60 hours. 60 hours? Nice. IBM. IBM Yorktown? Yup. They never wanted me to leave. They always wanted me to stay there. To continue doing what I’m doing and they did.
15:26
Yeah, the longest time was 60 hours. Well, I remember when we were working nights. Was it at Avon where we did the shut? Yeah, we did the shutdown where we were x-raying the equipment and tightening neutrals. Yeah. That shut down was how long? It wasn’t that long. It was just over night, right? Yeah, but then we did some other shutdowns. I could have sworn they were at Avon. No, were you at the sheetrock plant or you were gone by then? Ah. We were working a lot of time there. I did. I remember us doing some shutdowns. I know we did that shut down on Central Avenue. That strip mall that Paulie and I were at. Where he was grinding in the back of the panel and it was near some feeders. I’m like, “if you **** this up, I’m going to get blasted”. He goes, “well, that’s why I know you’re going to pay attention”.
16:21
It was like Hartsdale or whatever. Was it near Trader Joe’s? I’m trying to remember. For anybody who’s New York, they would get the reference. Anybody else would be like, “what the hell are these people talking about?!”
16:33
Yeah, it was on Central. I remember us doing shots of espresso at night. We gotta wait till we get this wire pulled in and everything terminated and everything back on. Now what would be your three lessons? Lessons learned on your high voltage splicing journey?
16:57
You have to be on top of your game. Okay. Alert all the time because anything can happen because 13,000 volts. It’s not like it’s a light switch where you can just hit the breaker and they go back on. Which would be, for the person who doesn’t know, versus 120 or 277 volts. Right. 13,000 will kill you. Yes. Quick. It has, you know. Have you ever seen anybody survive 13,000 volts? I’ve seen a kid. Yeah, actually. That’s another funny story. Okay. But That’s not really funny, because again, the kid was a jerk, right? Yep. He comes on the job and I won’t say where it was. It doesn’t matter. Westchester Community College. He works at Westchester Community College. Okay. So, I got a call saying, “uh, listen. We had an outage over here. You gotta come fix it”. I said okay. So, I go look and check it out and I’m looking for the outage. I’m looking for where the damaged cable was. We couldn’t find it so we got advanced testing. We were dumping it. That’s when we tested cable and it dumps. It tells you where the problem is. Yes. We couldn’t find it. So all of a sudden, their foreman calls me he says, “did the kid call you?” I said no. He said he’s supposed to call ya. Well, give him my number again. Maybe he got the wrong number. He calls me up and he says, “hey Donny.” He says, “you remember that man hole?” I said, “what man hole would that be babe?” He says, “The manhole over by whatever building it was”, I don’t remember. I said, “okay, what about it?” He says, “well, you told me it was dead”. I said, “no, I would never tell you that. I would never tell you anything is dead.” Right? No, you gotta test it yourself. Always
19:00
test it yourself. There’s no way in hell I would tell him that’s dead. Yep. I said, “so what did you do?” He says, “I cut it”. “You cut it!?”
19:10
With a pair of loppers. “You cut 13,000 volts with a pair of loppers?” He said “yeah”. I said, “did you change your underwear yet?” He says, “yeah, matter of fact I did”. I said then, “well then go play lottery. You’re a lucky bastard!” Nothing happened to the loppers? No, the loppers got burnt. Okay. I heard about people blowing their arm off and stuff like that. Well, that’s another story. Yeah, so he didn’t get hurt but. It rattled him. He did give me work. He gave you work. He gave you more work. Cha-ching to me. Yep. Chaos equals cash. Yup, chaos equals cash. Wow. Did he get fired? No, he didn’t get fired. They fucked shit up because he came in on Saturday to pull the wire out to go to the junk yard. Apparently, his foreman was in on it. Oh! Oh! Okay, so that’s what they were trying to sneak in there before you came in for the splice and yanked the wire ’cause they were going to scrap it? Yeah, they were
20:17
gonna scrap it. Of course, and he’s going to say that you told him it was dead. Which is bullshit. Hell no. I wouldn’t even tell you that 110 is dead and let you check it yourself. No. I’ve made sure Tom, since he’s an apprentice. I got him a lockout tagout kit and I told him you always keep that with you and always check. Don’t ever have anybody, “Yeah. Yeah!” Because that’s your life, not theirs. There’s no reason to do it live. Hell no. So now, would you call that the worst splicing story? That was actually sad. Because someone did something stupid like that and they could have killed themself. Yes, agreed. Is that up there with the worst story in the world? Yeah, it’s pretty, pretty bad. There’s another bad one when I was living in Rhinebeck. I just drove up the driveway. I got a call from Advanced Testing. He said there was a blow up down SUNY Purchase. “Babe, I just drove home an 1-1/2.” He said, “Don, we need you. SUNY they’re closed and they they don’t have any power”. Alright, so I go down here. I found out that the guy took a tester. The Wiggin’s. Yep. And he knew he had problems on the secondary. So he checked it on the secondaries. Then went to the primaries and he put the Wiggin’s on the primary. Wiggin’s are not made for primaries. No, they’re only rated for, the average person who’s listening, a Wiggin’s tester that he’s talking about only goes up to 600 volts and the guy’s trying to test that on what 13,000? Yup.
21:52
So, he had his. Apparently, he had his… Sorry, I just dropped some grapes.
21:59
Did you eat ‘em? Five second rule? They’re in with the other couple thousand grapes that are in there. Okay. I’m doing 6 gallons at a time. 6 or 60?
22:12
I’m halfway through my 42-pound box. How many hours did that take you? Another two days. Oh, you’ve been doing it for two days now?
22:26
Oh. I’m gonna call it quits for now and have coffee and come out tomorrow morning. Gotcha. Do it all day tomorrow. You get up early and tend to the garden first? The garden’s almost finished. Very nice. Is it harvest season for those ginormous squash? Did you see those squash? 36 pounds. Do they weigh 36 pounds? ’cause I put it as a YouTube “short” on my Verbally Disastrous YouTube channel, of course. I was making fun of the squash. So, Tom listened to my short and he was like, “Oh my God! You’re you’re a rip”. I think I pulled 150 lbs. of squash out of that plant. 150 pounds! So, you get a can everything, right?
23:11
Well, I give it away. I don’t know. Squash you really can’t can I don’t think. You can freeze it. I think you can freeze it. I’ll have to jump on the train to go get some. I got one sitting here right now that’s 30 pounds. Wow. Did I tell you that Johnny’s football team, the Carmel Rams, have been kicking *** and taking names this season? 28-0 the first game that I missed. Yeah. Actually, last Saturday against John Jay which is up in Fishkill. They won 40 to 7. In the beginning, John Jay, you know everybody was there talking **** and then towards the end, you see people staggering out like all depressed about how they got a beating. The week before, they were up. It was a home game. New Rochelle came up, New Rochelle is state champs. They were all nervous about ‘em: 28-0. They didn’t even let ’em score. I’m happy for him. I’m very happy for him that he’s a part of a winning situation. So it’s good for a young man’s self-esteem. There’s a ton of kids on the team. Well yeah. He’s a senior right? No. No. He’s a junior.
24:24
Yes, because it’s their last season. So, he plays more towards the end, so to speak. When the kids are tired. Obviously, when they’re on defense. But I’m happy for him that he’s experiencing something like that. It’s I think it’s awesome to see them all like kicking *** on that level. If they go to state, I definitely want to be in on that. Yeah, that would be cool to see that. Have that kind of bragging rights. They don’t wear a letter. You know how they used to have Letterman jackets and you’d have your high school letter? I haven’t seen anybody wearing one. $600 apiece. Yeah, but I I don’t even recall even seeing a kid wearing one to say, “hey, let me go get you a jacket”. Oh really? I have to find out about it. Because if he gets a letter for football, then that would be cool to get him to wear it as a keepsake. I just found my letter from White Plains. Did you? Was it for wrestling? Football.
25:26
Oh, you played football. What I was gonna ask you what type of electrical work you enjoy doing. But we’ve already established you like splicing and you sucked as an electrician. So you never did any low voltage? I remember that time when you were up on the ladder trying to do a smoke head for what was it Nick? You were like, “Leslie, can you help me? My hands are too big”.
25:49
Worked on fire alarm and then I went through so much cable because I couldn’t splice it out ’cause my hands were too fat. So, you would say fire alarm you hate? I’ll pipe the pipe and I’ll pull wire. No. You don’t want to do terminations. I did a short story on Amazon about our buddy “Lucky” who is our apprentice. You remember that fella right? Supposedly he’s still in the business.
26:19
You said you have nine fingers because that bastard? Almost. I know. You want to tell the story about that? Sure.
26:29
He couldn’t see, couldn’t hear, and couldn’t walk. He gave him to me as an apprentice to help me do some terminations in the cabinet. I had this. I’m gonna call it a high press. That’s where you put the cables together. You press the connectors together. There’s a big hydraulic one and I told Lucky, “Have you ever operated one of these before?” Of course, I had to really explain it to him. He said, “no, I didn’t”. I said, “when I say okay, hit that button”. So, he thought I said “okay” and he hit the button and he almost took my finger. So, I took the button away from. I told to go in the corner and sit in the corner. I wouldn’t let him work with me no more. I let him help with testing at that time. You remember our fearless leader? I had to work with him in Mount Vernon and we were piping out with the black Con Ed pipe up to the manhole. Remember we had those what I would describe, if you’re in elementary school, when you’re putting on those little rubber things on your pencil to keep you from getting calluses on your finger? The coupling was like a rubber, rubberized like clear green and you had to lube it up with Dawn soap. Squirt it all in. Squirt it all in there and then bang it on with a sledgehammer. it was like a whole technique with it. So here I’m messing with it and I’m trying to get the kid to do it. He smacked his ankle and he did it a couple of times. Because one leg was shorter than the other, as you so eloquently described, and he couldn’t hear, he had one eye. Yeah, it screws up your depth perception. I think from birth. I
28:01
asked him, “what made you decide to do this so?” “Because the insurance.” So, I said, “what good is that if you cause yourself or somebody else to be killed? What good is that?” It’s like you’re not even built for this business. At all. Whatsoever. He had a compensation case with every contractor he worked for. Yeah, ’cause by the time he was working with us, he was a fourth-year apprentice and he had four compensation cases. Which I didn’t think was possible. Because you open one and you can’t open up another one for three years. I think it’s three. It’s like a three-year timeframe. So, he must have had four accident reports and maybe a compensation case covering shit at least one. You get 26-weeks for each compensation ticket, so to speak, and it’s like every three years. So, what was the guy up on like his second comp case? Did he fall? He was on somebody’s job and he fell off the ladder and broke his shoulder.
28:55
Yeah, D’s job. He was something else. I felt like you couldn’t have him do anything. He was up there one step on the ladder. One step. Not 6 feet. Not 10 feet. One foot. One step on the ladder he fell. He fell off and broke his shoulder. Well, now you’re shorter than the other- uh, oh. I’m getting a dead battery.
29:13
Well, you want to call back later? Yeah, can I do that? Yeah, absolutely. This wraps up Part A on the discussion with my longtime pal Donny about his high voltage splicing career in New York.

Donny’s High Voltage Career Stories: Part A and B Podcast Episodes Have Been Released!!

Hello Everyone!

Let’s make each day an amazing day! I sure hope you are having a fabulous day today on your side of the globe!? In order to make it amazing, we must put our minds to it being so, right? Is it getting colder on your side of the globe this month? I have always liked the month of October as well as the Halloween themed month. I have been working on a variety of things so I have not been writing as much. I have some journals, sketchbooks, planners, etc. that are now on Amazon. I plan to review and share a podcast that someone on Twitter shared with me. I had initially mentioned that I would write out a review towards the end of the summer. However, that was put on hold due to other items being a priority. The podcast is entitled, “The Dirty Little Secrets Club” and is hosted by Dayna (That Trophy Wife Life Podcast) and Brimstone (The Grindhouse Radio) and I found it on YouTube. I am going to review their interactions and dirty secrets. I will then ask them some questions for them to respond at their earliest convenience. I am looking forward to listening to their content and writing out my thoughts. I will have to get from them the links to their other podcast platforms as well. I believe they are on Spotify at the very least. It appears to be an up and coming podcast. Here is the description to their podcast that can be found on their YouTube page below:

“Do you have a dirty little secret? Welcome to the club. From Coast to Coast, the Beauty from the West and the Beast from the East are offering you a VIP ticket to the dirtiest little secrets this club has to offer. Dayna (That Trophy Wife Life Podcast) and Brimstone (The Grindhouse Radio) let you take a peek into our own personal Pandora’s Box of anonymous secrets submitted through our website. So what are you waiting for? Step on in, and let’s get scandalous”.

The Dirty Little Secrets Club

Now, here is the real purpose of this post. I broke the writing drought to share this post with you all! I finally broke down and did the editing for my discussion with my long-time pal Don Raffa. Yay Leslie!! My buddy Donny, who is like a brother to me, is a retired high voltage splicer out of New York. As a high voltage splicer, Don had a 40-year career traversing many man holes throughout Westchester County, New York. Donny worked on high voltages that ranged on average from 5,000 to 13, 000 volts. These voltages will KILL a person instantly!! They set people on fire and cooks their body from the inside out. Every once in awhile, a person can evade certain death or dismemberment. For anyone not aware, Westchester County is the suburbs that lie directly north of New York City. About mid-way in his career, his name started appearing on the specs of many construction plans throughout Westchester as the required splicer to use for the work. I won’t spoil the podcast with any further details. He is a friend that I admire and happy to have in my corner if I have some questions. Be sure to check out the podcast episodes Part A & B and let me know what you think. I thank you for including me in your AM/PM routine when you check out my content today. I am always humored if you are sneaking to read this while at work. Ssshh, your secret is safe with me!! 😛 Let me know if you find my review interesting? I am sharing my latest, two podcasts that I released for The Verbally Disastrous Podcast via links for Spotify, Amazon Music, & YouTube below. I am also sharing the link to my (7) Kindle Vella short stories on Amazon as well. I finally forced myself to work on editing the podcast with my really good friend who is a retired high voltage splicer. I spent days on this work!! Editing long podcast episodes is not my favorite thing to do! However, I buckled down and got it done. Hopefully, you find these latest podcast episodes to be interesting. Now, make sure to have yourself an enjoyable Wednesday and enjoy what is left of the week. I wish you a great morning/afternoon/evening on your side of the globe and a restful or productive day!

My Pymetrics Trait Profile Report

Hello Everyone!

Each day is an amazing day as long as your put your mind to it being so right? I am trying to improve my mindset through thinking continuously in a good manner. I have always, when I worked with the tools, tried to make work fun. There are major life events that can shake your mindset. Now I have discovered Ester aka Abraham Hicks so I am trying to go back to my positive mindset. This whole global pandemic and disruptions in income can cause you to disrupt your mindset. Negative thoughts follow negative events. Meanwhile, positive thinking follows positive events. Therefore, you may hear some more cheesy phrases come out of my work. You have been fairly warned. 😛 I have been job hunting on Indeed. I have been having to take some assessment exams and play games to aid with the job application and my resume. Some game assessments are just wild and the results come back with some fairly interesting and accurate results. Have you ever taken a Pymetrics game assessment?? I took screenshots of my test results and I have the link down below.

I so thank you for drinking your coffee/beer/tea and checking out my content today. I am humored if you are sneaking to read this while at work. Ssshh, your secret is safe with me!! 😛 Let me know if you find my Pymetrics assessment overview interesting? I am not good at video games at all since it is not an interest of mine. Perhaps my score would have been better if I was more game savvy? I am not worrying about it. If it is not meant to be, it won’t matter. If it is meant to be, it will serve as my foot in the door of the organization. My last released Verbally Disastrous Podcast episode via links for Spotify, Amazon Music, & YouTube below. I am also sharing the link to my (7) Kindle Vella short stories on Amazon as well. Yes, I still have to work on editing a podcast with my really good friend who is a retired high voltage splicer that I recorded last week. Editing long podcast episodes is not my favorite thing to do. Make sure to have yourself an enjoyable Thursday and enjoy what is left of the week. I wish you a great morning/afternoon/evening on your side of the globe and a restful or productive day!

Offering Humorous Advice On The Interpretation Of Phrases

Photo Credit: Chew out – Idioms by The Free DictionaryChew out – Idioms by The Free Dictionary

Hello Everyone!

You better be having an amazing day going what you want to be doing. I found another odd and humorous question on Quora that requested my response. Therefore, I am opted to respond and share it with you all. I interpreted the question and mapped it out on my electronic ‘paper’. This question was on the subject of interpreting two different phrases. I tried to think about it logically and express it as cleanly as possible. I am not even going to ruin it for you. My goal is for you to laugh out loud or clutch your pearls. I am going to assume that the person asked me the question in order to receive a humorous response. There is also a possibility that this is slang and the person has a language barrier since English is not the primary language or the person is very young and looking for answers. Read my advice and let me know if you would also offer that kind of advice? If your advice is different, let me know that as well? Here is the posed question and my response below.

POSED QUESTION:

“What’s the difference between chewing someone out and eating someone out?”

by Madison Henderson

MY RESPONSE:

“Yikes!!! 😛 My interpretation of the two phrases varies greatly! Since this is a family oriented website intended for learning, I am going to assume that this is slang and a language barrier. Therefore, I shall tackle it in a PG manner.

The term “chewing someone out” means to offer verbally explosive diarrhea of the mouth upon another person. There are many reasons for unleashing your displeasure on another human.

The term “eating someone out” to me means to metaphorically feast at the spot on the human body where the legs meet up together near the hips on your partner.

Hopefully, you receive exactly what you are looking for via either term. I wish you luck on that.”

Thanks for drinking your coffee/beer/tea and casually checking out my content today. Let me know if you find my response interesting and humorous? If not amused, you’re welcome for surprising you today! I have other more PG content in my other blog posts to check out. I love the art of saying something yet not saying it in a clever, crafted manner. My last released Verbally Disastrous Podcast episode via links for Spotify, Amazon Music, & YouTube below. I am also sharing the link to my (7) Kindle Vella short stories on Amazon as well. I still have to work on editing a podcast with my really good friend who is a retired high voltage splicer that I recorded last week. As I mentioned before, it is quite long so it will have a Part A & B. Editing is not my favorite thing to do. Make sure to have yourself an enjoyable Columbus holiday Monday and enjoy what is left of the weekend. I wish you a great morning/afternoon/evening on your side of the globe and a restful or productive day!

Photo Credit: Are You Scared Of The Voice In The Walls? by Watcher on YouTube

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are making the best of the last day of your Columbus Day weekend!? For my readers outside the U.S., we celebrate Columbus Day in reference to the ancient explorer who has been credited with discovering America. I actually like the holiday since it is one where not everything is shut down. I tend to use the time to get more work accomplished on my low content book collection on Amazon and my other creative venues. I was supposed to go hang out with my sons at a haunted old prison in Philadelphia, PA over this weekend. As I shared before, my sons and I enjoy checking out haunted houses during the month of October. The month of October is our favorite of the entire year. My son is playing football so his practice and the weekend rain was a conflict with our plans. Therefore, we shall reschedule for a better weekend. I absolutely love seeing that my son is so excited to play football and be a part of an undefeated varsity team. They are looking like they are going to state playoffs which is exciting. Of course, I need to subscribe to the local newspaper so I can get the news articles and save them for my son in the future. I’m putting positive energy out into the universe that my son will be approached by a college scout and get a football scholarship.

On another note, I found another interesting question on Quora that requested my response. Therefore, I am going to share it with you and my response. I interpreted the question and mapped it out on electronic paper. This question was on the subject of being scared. I tried to think about it logically and trying to look at both sides of the coin. I don’t always think that a person who is scared is weak. Fear is an emotion that we all have in life for different reasons. I don’t believe that males should be denied that opportunity to exercise fear. On the other side of the coin, I don’t think anyone should continually ride the coat tails of fear either. You must put the best foot forward and dodge crazy people with unpredictable behavior to the best of your ability. You don’t need to submerge yourself in risky environments to prove yourself either. Only weak men run to the hills and dodge their duty as a father to their seed. Read my advice and let me know if you would also offer that kind of advice? If your advice is different, let me know that as well? Here is the posed question and my response below.

POSED QUESTION:

“If you are scared of someone, does it mean you are weaker than them?”

by Frbnna

MY RESPONSE:

“Well, let’s review the term scared. What does it really mean according to the dictionary?

Scared

Definition of ADJECTIVE
a word belonging to one of the major form classes in any of numerous languages and typically serving as a modifier of a noun to denote a quality of the thing named, to indicate its quantity or extent, or to specify a thing as distinct from something else… See the full definition

https://www.merriam-webster.com/login
\ ˈskerd \

Definition of “Scared”:

: thrown into or being in a state of fear, fright, or panic scared of snakes scared to go out

Perhaps there is more than one way to look at this question. People fear the unknown and anyone with unpredictable behavior. Is the behavior considered dominant or just straight crazy? Does the person have evil intentions and harness negative energy? It is possible that a person behaves in such a manner that puts you in a heightened state of panic. When this happens, you are not necessarily weaker than the other person. Your pattern of behavior may not match the behavior pattern of the other person. One example of behavior does not already put one party weaker than the other one.

If you have the heart of a lion, then the erratic behavior of others will not necessarily rattle you and put you into a state of panic. A lion is predatory in nature and considered the king & queen of the animal kingdom. Even lions know when it is best to just remove themselves from a situation such as hunting season. Because the lion made the choice to dodge the group of humans with firearms and bright colored suits, does this make him weaker than the hunter? Always being brave, fearless, and predatory is not always the right answer. Sometimes it is better to use your brain and execute a strategy to dodge a bad outcome.

However, when it comes to protecting your family, this is the time where you are expected to fight to the bitter end. You must drop any form of fear and go into warrior mode. You must also use your brain to strategize if the possibility of defeat is on the table during combat. I believe that if a man runs away and doesn’t protect his family, then he is scared and weak. It is in your primal being as a male to protect your family. Mothers are not off the hook either. If anything, I expect more from a mother than a man protecting his family.

Therefore, it is my conclusion that being scared of a person doesn’t necessarily mean that you are weaker. Unpredictable behavior from a crazy person can even put fear in the heart of a lion. How you respond to threats to your family shows who you are as a protector. If you believe that you have any form of weakness that you do not like, work on strengthening it. We are all in this life having experiences so that we may learn lessons. Nothing is concrete and everything can evolve and improve. I wish you much luck on your journey.”

Advice On The Power Of Being Thoughtful And The Analysis

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are enjoying your weekend!? As in my last post, I’m sorry that I have been off the grid for awhile. I have been working on my low content book collection on Amazon and possibly other venues. In my last post, I shared some covers that have been released to Amazon. My goal is to have 1,000 journals, gratitude journals, shopping list journals, password list journals, sketchbook journals, and other styles on Amazon. As of the beginning of October 2021, I have around 200 different types released. I am supposed to go hang out with my sons at a haunted old prison in Philadelphia, PA this weekend. I am unsure if we are still going to do that or not. My sons and I enjoy checking out haunted houses during the month of October. The month of October is my favorite of the entire year. I like the cooler weather and the scary Halloween theme. I love picking pumpkins and making muffins and pies plus apple picking and making pies for my sons. This time of year is great for me and my family. What time of year is your favorite? If you could create a new holiday when and what would it be?

On another note, I found an interesting question on Quora that requested my response. Therefore, I am going to share it with you and my response. I interpreted the question as two-fold. This question was on the subject of being thoughtful. Being thoughtful is a beautiful thing and the person exhibiting this behavior pattern is a soul on a high vibration. The person who is always grateful for the kind acts is also on a high vibration. The same person who then extends the same kindness in return is an amazing soul. Those people should be cherished and best efforts should be exercised to keep them in your life. Sadly, in this world we live in, we have to question each and every person who does something that is either very kind or selfish. You have to consider the motives of each party and analyze words and actions. I tried to think about it logically and trying to look at both sides of the coin. Let me know if you would offer that advice? If your advice is different, let me know? Here is the posed question and my response below.

POSED QUESTION:

“Is it positive to always be thoughtful? What does it mean if someone says she is always thoughtful?”

by Kwue

MY RESPONSE:

“Well, these are two separate questions. I shall respond to each one. First, let’s look at the meaning of ‘thoughtful’ according to the dictionary since it is the theme of both questions.

thoughtful

thought·​ful | \ ˈthȯt-fəl \

Definition of thoughtful

1a: absorbed in thought : MEDITATIVE b: characterized by careful reasoned thinking a thoughtful essay

2a: having thoughts : HEEDFUL became thoughtful about religion b: given to or chosen or made with heedful anticipation of the needs and wants of others; a kind and thoughtful friend

Question #1:

Now, I agree that it is often positive to be thoughtful. The only time that it is not good is when it is not met with equal thoughtfulness by all involved parties. When you are always considering the best interest of others, it can be emotionally, physically, and/or financially taxing. When only one person is the thoughtful person, others count on that feature and will take advantage. Over time, the other parties benefit off the back of one generous person. When the generous party runs out of resources, those sponging will back off and fade away. This is that time when being thoughtful, at the expense of yourself and your resources, is not a good thing to do.

Beware of the person who “appears” to be thoughtful yet operates with a manipulative heart. Meaning, whatever kind deed they extend, they are expecting something else bigger in return that exceeds whatever generosity you have displayed first. This could be either now or somewhere down the road. This may be something that they thought about down the road that you have yet to consider. This type of behavior is an energy vampire drain on the kind soul being drained of their money, time, and energy. The sad part is that often this behavior is considered non-ethical but not considered illegal.

In a perfect world, we wouldn’t have to keep an eye on others who may have motives behind their actions. Sadly, I have dealt with people who I allowed to drain me of my energy and resources based upon the concept of getting married in the future.

Question #2:

A person who is announcing that they are thoughtful are either looking for a pat on the back for their “good deeds” or looking for something from you. The main question would be: has this woman completed a series of thoughtful deeds over a period of time? If yes, she is looking for validation so give her thanks for her good deeds. Then ask her if there is anything you can do for her? If you can offer what she is looking for then good. If not, speak up and say that you can’t offer what she is looking for right now. Create a timeframe of when you can offer what she seeks.

If she has not been as thoughtful as she claims, you have some options. You either disagree with her claims or you take mental note of the situation and try to limit your future interactions with her. Beware of people who do not have a fair finger on the pulse of their own behavior.

Ask yourself why this person has to TELL you that they are thoughtful? Shouldn’t their good deeds already be seen in action? If they have been seen, the person should not have to convey something that was already observed past behavior. Perhaps she is thoughtful and feels the need to remind you for a variety of reasons. She may be looking for gratitude for her thoughtfulness. If she is thoughtful, a simple thank you should work. If she is tooting her own horn on her kindness and a thank you is not working, what exactly is she looking for? If you are not aware of what she is looking for, you need to simply ask her what is the reason for seeking a pat on the back. If you don’t feel comfortable asking her, then retrace your interactions. The root of seeking validation lies somewhere in the history of your interactions. You may not be one to offer compliments on good deeds bestowed. If that is the case, work to do better. I wish you luck on these issues in your life.”

Sharing My Newly Created Amazon Howe Caverns Journal Book Covers

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are all doing well!? Sorry I have been off the grid for awhile. I have been working on my low content book collection on Amazon and possibly other venues. Here are some photos of covers that will be released to Amazon shortly after they finish review. I estimate that they will be live for sale by next week if not over the weekend. As of now, I have 20 journals that will be released with Howe Caverns photo covers. My goal is to have 1,000 journals, gratitude journals, shopping list journals, password list journals, sketchbook journals, and other styles on Amazon. As of the beginning of October 2021, I have around 200 different types released. Obviously, it takes a lot of work to come up with decent covers and create the journals and load them to my KDP account. I will return as soon as I can and go back to normal writings. As I have shared in a previous post, I went camping about 3 hours upstate from New York City. While I was up there, I opted to tour Howe Caverns. I found the natural rock formations and artificial lighting to be absolutely fascinating and beautiful. I took a ton of photos and videos while I was 150-200 feet below the surface. Here are some captured photos that are now the front and back covers of my dream journal series. I plan to expand on the type of journals with these cover photos at a later date. Let me know what you think?

I am sharing my last released Verbally Disastrous Podcast episode via links for Spotify, Amazon Music, & YouTube below. I am also sharing the link to my (7) Kindle Vella short stories on Amazon as well. Please know that you are highly appreciated. I am working on my tasks and working on a podcast with my really good friend who is a retired high voltage splicer today. Have yourself a productive Friday now that the weekend has arrived.

Sharing Some Crazy Guy Audio Ramblings On YouTube

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are having not too crazy of a Monday?! I hope you are having an easy breezy time with no issues. I am sharing some audio that I captured last week while walking home. I had some fella follow me for quite a ways while endlessly rambling nonstop about many things. Some of it was a political rant. He sounded mad at the world. He kept following me off Bell Blvd and for a few blocks. He must be known within the community. He stopped following me once an NYPD vehicle did a U-turn and approached him. I guess he didn’t want any of that smoke and started walking back to Bell Blvd. I didn’t like the unflattering video footage of the sky and my forehead, I was carrying a box when this happened, so made it into an audio format and then used Animoto to create the MP4 format again. Here are the several clips I caught while walking. I’m sure this guy’s voice sounds unstable? Here are the clips that I loaded up to my Verbally Disastrous YouTube channel:

Let me know if you find these audio files amusing? Can you make sense of what he says? He sounds rather frustrated to me. I am sharing my just released Verbally Disastrous Podcast episode via links for Spotify, Amazon Music, & YouTube below. I am also sharing the link to my (7) Kindle Vella short stories on Amazon as well. Please know that you are highly appreciated. I am going to work on my tasks and finish some attic clean up today. Have yourself a productive Monday now that the weekend has passed. I wish you a great morning/afternoon/evening on your side of the globe and a fabulous work week!

Just Released Podcast Episode #34: How To Become A NYC Site Safety Manager

Hello Everyone!

I have been occupied with other projects lately and my podcast has been on the back burner. Not having my car has altered my weeks. I sure hope you are having a much better time. I spend more time walking and taking mass transit. I don’t want to wine about it since it could always be worse. However, it has had an impact on my creative projects. I spent 6 hours traveling to see my youngest son Jho play with his varsity football team on Saturday. The Carmel Rams beat New Rochelle by 28-0. My son said that his team was afraid of New Rochelle since they were state champs last year. I am happy for my son being apart of a positive and winning experience. I need to rent a car on football nights until I get my permanent car. He is a junior so he has less than 2 years left with high school. It was worth the trek to see his excitement. Now, I opted to release a podcast episode to offer guidance as to becoming a Site Safety Manager in New York City. I shared the useful study guides and the order of operations on the certifications and exams being accomplished. For a person not interested in the journey yet curious, I hope this offers a snapshot in what it takes to become a leader in safety. Any construction jobsite you see with NYC DOB permits, it may have site safety managers onsite. It hinges as to what stage the project is in. Usually, when the exterior is sealed and the sidewalk sheds (built over the sidewalks) are broken down and removed, the site safety manager is no longer required onsite. I try to break it down colorful and in layman’s terms for a basic understanding. If I say anything that is a challenge to translate, please let me know. This episode has been loaded to YouTube.

Here is Verbally Disastrous Presents- Season #1, Episode #34: How To Become A NYC Site Safety Manager on YouTube:

I always want to say thanks for stopping by my world to check out my content today. If you are a YouTube channel subscriber, I thank you for the support. Let me know if you like this style of a podcast episode? As usual, I am sharing my Verbally Disastrous Podcast links for Spotify, Amazon Music, & YouTube below. I am also sharing the link to my (7) Kindle Vella short stories on Amazon as well. Just know that you are highly appreciated. I am going to get ready to rest up and get ready for Monday. Have yourself a peaceful Sunday with what’s left of the weekend. I wish you a great morning/afternoon/evening on your side of the globe and a fabulous upcoming work week!

My Latest Side Hustle Authoring Low Content Books On Amazon!!

Photo Credit: My Waterfall Painting- Leslie M. Jasper

Hello Everyone!

I hope you had a decent work week that was low key and easy? Are you thrilled that it is Friday!? Do you fantasize about your weekend grill menu today or the past week? It is not something that I do. However, I appreciate others who think about lunch and dinner at 7AM at work. It felt like it went by fast for me this week. I have been very involved with a variety of tasks. My latest side hustle is releasing low content books on Amazon!! Of course, I am going to share this new venture on this blog post. It’s only fair since I have dedicated quite a few time to working on creating them and not to my usual blogging. I indeed owe a new podcast episode since I am behind. I shall try to release another one this weekend. I need to work on more step-by-step safety tutorials on my Leslie M. Jasper YouTube Channel as well. The goal is to grow a collection of side hustles from the computer. I have a bad back nowadays so I have to be cautious with hurting it through manual labor. I did it for many years without even thinking there is an expiration date via pain. Protect your body if you are a young person. I have always been a little rough around the edges. I scoffed at using a back brace or knee pads. In hindsight, I should have been more diligent with the tools to minimize injury. These are lessons even for the most stubborn..LOL. Hopefully, you listened to your elders better than I did.

I always have nervous energy and always feel like I need to keep busy. I always feel better when I am working on my creative projects. For the past few weeks, I have dedicated a lot of time to launching my low content book library on Amazon. I started using my artwork, from this past winter, for the covers of my various low content books. I plan to create more future artwork so that I can use them on my upcoming content. I also use patterns that are considered “public domain”. You don’t earn as much in royalties when you use public domain work. I am aware that I need to mix it up with popular items, such as the Brooklyn Bridge, to attract buyers to my content. My goal is to create thousands of different titles for Amazon. I am using http://www.bookbolt.io right now to create my low content books. As of today, I have 27 low content books that are now live on Amazon. According to my KDP account, it takes up to 72 hours for the work to be published. However, in my case, it has averaged (5) days from the time I pushed complete to going live. Here is the most recent list of my book titles that are now available on Amazon globally to purchase online:

  1. Baking Recipe Journal: Family Recipe Book
  2. Chaotic Christmas Gratitude Journal
  3. Chaotic Christmas Personal Journey
  4. Chaotic Christmas Sketchbook
  5. Easter Secret Gratitude Journal
  6. Easter Secret Journal
  7. Easter Secret Sketchbook
  8. Green Serene Gratitude Journal
  9. Green Serene Journal
  10. Green Serene Sketchbook
  11. My Cocktail Recipe Journal
  12. My F@cking Paradise Journal!!
  13. My Thoughts Within the Storm Journal
  14. My Waterfall Dream Journal
  15. Night Rain Gratitude Journal
  16. Night Rain Journal
  17. Night Rain Sketchbook Journal
  18. Night Sky Journal
  19. Ocean Breeze Gratitude Journal
  20. Ocean Breeze Journal
  21. Ocean Breeze Sketchbook Journal
  22. One Strong Woman’s Journal
  23. Rosy Days Journal
  24. Rosy Days Start With Gratitude!! Journal
  25. Thank God For My Gratitude Journal!!
  26. Thank Goodness For My Gratitude Journal!!
  27. Weekly Meal Planner: Meal Prep Journal

As far as expanded distribution, it appears that public domain low content have no royalties to earn on Amazon. It is to your advantage to create your own covers for your content. Are you also a fellow author on Amazon? If so, what is your experience? I believe that I will earn some decent royalties with this extra side hustle. If you sit on your hands, you will never know if it will work out or not. I like the thought of putting it online and walking away and not having to babysit it. I say that I want to put thousands to books online. However, I will go for at least 500 books and watch their performance. I will carve more time if they do well. I have quite a few 2022-2023 Monthly Planners submitted just in time for the end of the year. I will create some holiday themed covers as well. On the personal front, I have to get my ass upstate to watch my youngest son Jho play with his Carmel varsity football team against New Rochelle tonight. This means taking subway and train up out of the city before rush hour. I am looking forward to cheering my boy on tonight with my eldest son. I have been helping my friend with cleaning the attic and getting ready to move. I personally hate to move. I did it in 2017 and rented out my property since I got burned out with the long commute into New York City. Well, I have some tasks to work on so I will say bye for now. Let me know what you think about my new low content work? If you like it or do not like it, leave a comment in the section below. I will appreciate constructive criticism if it is logical. I thank you for stopping by my world to check out my content. I am sharing my Verbally Disastrous Podcast links for Spotify, Amazon Music, & YouTube below. I am also sharing the link to my (7) Kindle Vella short stories on Amazon as well. Just know that you are highly appreciated. I wish you a great morning/afternoon/evening on your side of the globe and a fabulous upcoming weekend!
