It is good to be back.

Some viewers may have noticed that sometime late yesterday access to ODD was blocked. A dark and foreboding message appeared on your screen that ODD was unsecured and attackers may be attempting to steal your info/passwords/pets/children/Justin Bieber digital music. It was false. Brandon at Humaan Creative. ODDMAN’s computer wizard, got the problem fixed very quickly last night. It was a problem on my host’s server and not an attack from Russia, China or Homeland Security on the righteous LAND OF ODD. Your Justin Bieber music list is safe.

So on with today’s post. It’s a little bit of everything to start your week off right. Have fun.


The dark and foreboding message that appeared when trying to get to oddman.ca. This appeared on Chrome, Explorer, Firefox and on my phone. It is now fixed, as you can see. My host issued a new SSL certificate after a recent upgrade to it.

      I’m pretty sure it’s the spiders with you being in Oz, but a very close second to the dumb ass.

    I feel cheated that I didn’t get to see the “dark and foreboding message”! 🙂

    The UPS driver I’m sure had his dispatcher saying “Wait, say that again?”

    I’m reminded of a story my Grandfather told me once. A travelling salesman stopped by the house in his new 1932 Ford convertible and was invited into the house. When he got finished and went to leave it was found that my Grandfather’s goats had climbed onto the car, ripping through the top and punching holes in the seats with their hooves.

    I recall the story, but I have no idea who paid for the damage. These days there probably would have been a lawsuit, but I imagine in 1932 they just agreed on something and shook hands.

    The lightning strike in the Grand Canyon is an amazing shot.

    Velll I’m not sure I totally believe this whole ‘it’s all fixed now’ thing. We live in a very strange society with false flags and twists and turns and failed golfers named Trump that would make Inspector Clouseau look like a Mensa member. Lets look at this from a paranoid perspective, or as they say “if you think they’re out to get you…..maybe they are”.
    First of all we lost the Oddman site. Information states that it was compromised and all our data was being pilfered such as credit cards etc. Not that that bothers me, all my ID is fake anyhow. Then Oddman suddenly returns and says that some unknown person who simply goes by the single name of Brandon…..miraculously solved the problem in the middle of the night. [for those who may not know, Brandon spelled backwards is ‘no dnarb’ which is a combination of ancient Sanskrit and Pig Latin which means “if you believe this then I have some swamp land in Guelph to sell you”. But you will also notice we were told this was not a hack job by Russia or China. Why mention those two specific countries?? Why not Luxembourg or Liechtenstein or the Vatican? I believe Russia and China were mentioned to give us a false sense of security and thus eliminate those two countries immediately from our mind. It’s like Trump saying ‘that’ tape was false or Roy Moore is just a good old country boy! And how do we know that is Oddman commenting? For all we know….he’s having breakfast with Putin.
    I wonder if this simple slip in technology is not a gateway to the infiltration of all computers in N. America and in later years people will write in the history books that it all started rather oddly, on a site called ODD…..and from a tiny seed of infiltration (music please https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-QFj59PON4 ) the world computer systems were quietly taken over. First there was Boris and then Maxwell Smart and then Austin Powers ….and the list goes on and on. I mean think about it……A Spy Named Odd. Hummmm I see movie rights here!!!!
    Well I’m not taking any chances. I’m covering my computer in tin foil and discarded peanut shells to stop any foreign signals from getting in.

    – That carousel is very eerie looking. It happened recently in Bergamo Italy in the centre of the town. Police are investigating but after seeing the video I find it hard to believe it would totally go up in flames, all around equally, without a little help.
    – Tom Waits, very cool dude. One of my favourite tunes of his… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SDo1617aXX4
    – I really like that photo of the woman with the steer. Big Boy!

    Well y’all have a good day and be careful out there, it’s an Odd world. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qnd-hdmgfk

      I am wondering about this commentor called, Deacon…or his his name really Ivan? His comments seem to continually be caught for moderation. Hmmm. It could be an attempted internet attack from rural Ontario that he is leading, under cover for Russian KGB spies.

      My spam filters have never liked his e-mail host. Maybe they know something I don’t…

    Nothing can take down Odd not even those unknown up to no good people who tried to take it away..I bet it was a “normal” group of people who are against being Odd. Yup, that’s who tried to take away Odd from us was not Russia or China they enjoy being Odd, but those anti-odd people..We need to be on high alert for these people because with them around our world might turn normal…0o0 lol

    Awww…I love the goats! They are past cute!!!! I want a goat one day.

    Wooo the dragon knife is pretty, I need it. 😉

    Have a good one,

    Poor little lamb got put in the front and had to lead the big sheep across a dangerous abyss(English Sparrow or Victorian Sparrow-for the Monty Python fans).
    As for Boris and Natasha trying to destroy the Oddman land!, Mr Peabody needs to trap them deep in the past with his Wayback time machine.
    And us dinos do need to remember to floss, at least the night before our dentist visit.
