Computer Programmers Numbers Lists In Text Files

I'm learning Python. I share text files of numbers. The file name denotes how the numbers are delimited or separated. Rename the text file deleting the COMMA, TAB, or SPACE. There are prime numbers, pentagonal numbers, and odd composite numbers as of today's blog post. Direct link to download https://github.com/raymondmar61/numbers.

Life Is Xs and Os

Life is Xs and Os or the letter Xs and circles. Life connects people with others with many Xs. Life comes full circle. Anything people do today affects other people. Anything people do today affects the future one minute later, 12 hours later, one day later, one year later, decades later, etc. We rarely think about our actions at the moment. All little actions affect the future. All big actions affect the future.

For instance, I'm writing today's blog at home. I can be driving running errands. I can be in an accident. I can find an unadvertised sale in a grocery store. I can meet a new friend at the gas station. I can meet an old friend from college. I can watch a baseball game in a ball park. Another person can be in an accident since I'm home. Someone else buys the entire stock of an item on an unadvertised sale in a grocery store. I never meet a new friend at the gas station. I missed a chance to meet an old friend from college. Somebody else purchased my ticket at the ball park. There are moments every second. There are instances every second.

Every breath we take something happens good and bad. We hope favorable timing and good luck brings good fortune. On the other hand, we hope favorable timing and good luck minimizes bad fortune. Everyone has bad days. We hope we live more good days than bad days. Unfortunately, there are people living more bad days than good days. People affects other people's good days. People affects other people's bad days.

Everything we do today life finds a way to come back to us. The answers we find come back to us. Life coming back to us in a circle may seem too simple. The late Steve Jobs said it best, "You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards." Connecting the dots backwards is completing life full circle. Reading books, learning new job skills, exercising four days a week, minimize eating processed foods, avoiding people wasting my time, and sleeping eight hours a night are actions I hope come full circle. When is the full circle complete? I don't know. What are the outcomes? I don't know. Who are the new friends I meet? I don't know. How do I know what I'm doing today makes a difference for me and for other people tomorrow? I don't know. Why am I living my life this way? I don't know.

Some Men Who Are Losers Makes All Men Losers

There is a common knowledge two people in a serious relationship both people should be winners. In particular, a woman should date a good man. The definition of a good man is subjective. Every woman has a different definition who they want to date. Intuitively, a good man is smart, kind, strong, courageous, open, and practices good social skills. Women must avoid loser men. Women must avoid dating a loser hoping he becomes a winner. If the woman is dating a potential winner, then the wait time for a loser to become a winner is subjective. Almost all losers continue to be losers. It's sad. Read my Top Ten Men Truths men I wrote on Jan 2017 to acquire knowledge how to be a winner. A winner attracts people.

Moreover, the attitudes dating men are changing. A kind, polite, and nice man were the top qualities to date. A man with a job, drives his own car, and lives with freedom are added to the top qualities.

Trust Time And Trust Life

Today's blog is a simple philosophy on time and on life. Maybe everything happens for a reason. Maybe every event happens for a reason. Maybe every moment happens for a reason. Everyone in the world and everything in the world interacts. There are connections. What one person does make a difference. What one person does affect another person. What one person does may be insignificant one day. Tomorrow may be the day what one person does affect someone or something else significantly. The reason is found in time. The answer comes soon.

The world has been complicated. More time is required to make the complicated easier. Ironic. Take life one day at a time. Increment. Patience is a virtue.

Some people have good moments. Some people have bad moments. We hope for the best. The two things every living being must trust are life and time. Nobody wins 100% of the time. There are winners. There must be losers for winners. It's life. We hope none of us are the losers. Trust life and trust time we become winners. Never give up. Give hard work time. Stay strong. Stay courageous. Accept life is unfair. We hope at the minimum we're winners at least 51% of the time. Some people are losers at least 51% of the time.

In addition, every living being must trust timing. A person met his or her future spouse at the right place at the right time. A car is hit at the wrong place at the wrong time by another car failing to stop at a red signal light. Every living being must trust luck. People who play board games understand luck is a factor. People who follow sports understand luck is a factor.

There are four things every living being must trust: life, time, timing, and luck. The definitions of winners and losers are subjective of course. In conclusion, life is not perfect. We hope tomorrow brings a perfect moment. We hope life brings a big break to change our lives.

Side note: It's okay to eat a chocolate on occasion.

Eat Your Apples

A random thought appeared in my head. I remember my freshmen year in high school during the lunch hour a few of my friends purchased school lunches. The lunches included a fruit. My friends threw away the fruit in the basketball courts. It was wrong my friends wasted fruit. It was wrong my friends littered the high school campus. There have been people struggling financially to provide food for themselves and/or their families. The problem existed decades ago when I was a teenager. The problem exists today. I feel sad and I feel angry thinking about the high school moment. Wasting food is a pet peeve. Don't waste food.

Update On A Past Blog

One negative going back to school attending De Anza College in 2009-2011 was missing business intelligence or BI. I recently learned BI started in 2010. I wonder if I didn't attend De Anza College, then I introduced myself to BI. I'm catching up what I missed job skill wise learning BI. De Anza College was my 2010 moment of the year from my blog Moment Of The Years on Jan 2016. Here's a link to my De Anza College review: My All De Anza Review Blog on Dec 2012.

Also, I shared a story finding my wife from my blog I Need More Stories on Apr 2018. I'm behind in life. I add learning job skills to catch up what I missed.

My Two Grandfathers

I washed pots and pans one day inspired me to blog my grandfather on my mom's side. My family visited my grandfather's house when I was a child. He consistently kept his house clean and organized. He cleaned all messes. He washed all dishes. He set up the dining room table before the meals. He cooked all the meals. Anything disorganized was reorganized by him. He had all the free time in the world for which he could behave lazy. He made a choice to think of his guests. He committed his home was comfortable for all of his family members. I look forward to maintain my residence like my grandfather which is clean and organized. I look forward to welcome all guests to my residence feeling comfortable.

Everyone visited the cemetery when one of my uncle's family visited for the 2017 Christmas holiday inspired me to blog my grandfather on my dad's side. My grandfather was average intelligent. On the other hand, his financial knowledge was above average. He set up my father and my two uncles never worry about money problems. He taught his three sons financial education which includes investments, savings, and discretion spending. I repeat. He taught his three sons financial education. His family was financially stable. His future family is financially stable. I promise my grandfather I invest wisely, save intelligently, and spend discretionally. I promise my grandfather I continue my financial education to live financially stable. I take none of my grandfather's financial stability for granted.

My two grandfathers worked hard to take care of their families. Much respect. Much recognition. Much appreciation.

Update On A Past Blog

I was sick with allergies and coughs on Jan 2018 and Apr 2018. My mouth infection was Angular Cheilitis on Apr-May 2018. I wrote a blog The Best Life [Timeout] Or Distraction Is Being Sick on Nov 2012. My Jan 2018 sickness I took a short timeout. On the other hand, my Apr 2018 sickness I took a full distraction. The recovery for Jan 2018 was longer than Apr 2018. I should have taken a full timeout in Jan 2018. No timeout or distraction was needed for my Angular Cheilitis. I took a full timeout when I was an impatient at O'Connor Hospital needing two surgeries on Apr 2017. The first surgery removed gallstones or Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio Pancreatography (ERCP). The second surgery removed my gallbladder or Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy.

Throwback Blog: FYI, Parents You Are Teachers, Too

Blogger’s Note: Throwback blogs are blogs from my past. I start posting past blogs reflecting what I wrote. It's like my "A Second Look" blogs for which I give myself feedback.

Today's throwback blog is titled FYI, Parents You Are Teachers, Too in Jul 2009. Good timing for parents raising children. Summer vacation began weeks ago. It's a good time for parents to teach their children which includes keeping their brains active for the next school year. Use it or lose it. Also, the blog is a reminder parents must find time to teach their children despite long working hours. We live in the information age. More jobs require more than 40 hours during a work week. There is no excuse parents not teaching their children.


Parents, it's tough to raise children in the fast pace way of living. In middle June, two twin sisters fought in front of my house. One of the sisters alleged their father was abusive. I don't know who's telling the truth. But, wow!!! In addition, the recession is making financial decisions tough for struggling families.

Parents, find time to teach the soft skills schools don't teach. Schools teach the reading, writing, and math academic education. Schools don't teach manners, computers, communication skills, ability to deal with others, and physical fitness. Also, schools don't teach dancing, sewing, cooking, singing, fixing cars, yoga, and basket weaving. Furthermore, schools don't teach positive attitudes, responsibility, earning, innovating infinitely ^__^, trying new restaurants, visiting new places, welcoming failures and mistakes, and finding who your kids are. Avoiding teaching the soft skills because of long work hours is inexcusable. You're the parents, you signed the contract to raise and teach the children the moment they're born.

My parents failed to teach me the soft skills and the life skills. I forgive them! I'm taking responsibility and taking action to correct their mistakes and catch up. I have a long way to go. I'm late learning what I should have I have learned a long time ago. I'm growing up, and that's good to realize now instead of later.

All of my friends and classmates in college agreed general education classes are a waste of time and waste of money. I believe college students need to take classes in soft skills—skills useful when they live their lives in the real world. Students pick the skills. The skills include first aid, cooking, car maintenance, basic PC computer skills, sewing, palates, and telling jokes. Science, humanities, liberal arts are good to learn. In today's world, who cares if someone knows the periodic table. I rather know ballroom dancing and cooking scrambled eggs =)

Side Note: Another sign of the recession when retail stores sells back to school supplies a week after 4th of July.
