When you need work done, ask the old guys

An even dozen mailboxes are clustered where the gravel road meets the paved one. A large, very old, rotten timber holds up 8 of them while the other four perch atop various posts that are as individual as the homeowners who added their mailbox to the row. In all, a very random collection with only one at the US Postal Service mandated 40″ height. Last Monday we all received notices from the post office that our mailboxes needed to meet the 40″ minimum. I responded with printed notes in each mailbox inviting all to a work party at 0900 Saturday to raise them all together. One man telephoned me to say he couldn’t make next Saturday, but wanted to help. […]

Bosco at 5.7 months

He is shaping up to be an excellent dog. Yeah, the German Shepherd Dog (GSD) side needs employment … OR ELSE … they self-employ … and the owners are guaranteed to not like their ideas. But, dang, they make great family dogs. I suspect Bosco’s ears are a month from standing up like proper GSD ears, but his head seems otherwise dominated by his American Pit Bull (APB) half. Both are described as athletic and strong; both traits desirable in a country dog. Puppy Chart .com estimates my 68.6-pound 5.6-month-old will be a 100-pound adult. *WARNING* Stay on top of training. You won’t want an out-of-control Big, Strong, Athletic, Inventive dog. Dogtime.com is an EXCELLENT reference tool. The peculiarities of […]

infected … again

I apologize for the absence. I tried visiting an interesting-sounding article at some new ‘prepper’ website only to get my computer hopelessly infected. I lost a few days to installing a new operating system … and, sigh, ugh, rebuilding one link after another. My e-mail is still not functioning. Dang. I would rather run power tools through lumber than play games with computers.

Polly Boiko delivers a great short summary of The Donald’s European tour.

sad day when rational conversation is unapproved

Those paying attention to world affairs from a variety of sources know the MSMs anti-Russian, anti-Trump hysteria is irrational. The interview below on the eve of the Trump / Putin meeting is a calm, objective look that blows the smoke of hysteria away. You might almost get the impression that rational adults could be in charge. Lordy! Putin puts Russia’s interests first & respects Trump’s ‘reci from Ted Dunlap on Vimeo.

the frenzy

one using the old noodle – vs the other

Faux News talking head Chris Wallace unsheathes his wet noodle to “ask the hard questions” of Vladimir Putin. The interview below is well worth watching at least as much for the uneven contest as for the content. Whether by official policy or personal acceptance of their mythologies, poor Chris tries to corner Vladimir with smoke and mirrors only to find his opponent quite capable of clearing the air every time. Proven lies do not show well in contrast to proven facts. They keep trying to get Putin to play their games by their rules. Why would any sane person do that? I am personally impatient with interrupters. Sensationalist shouters squash debate, substituting a contest of rudeness for an honorable […]

Cannabis: A Lost History

The DEA, Drug Enforcement Agency, is a construct that was conjured-up to squash political opposition and enrich friends of the rulers. I want you to read the following article and watch the video with the DEA’s proclamation regarding cannabis in mind. Schedule I Schedule I drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. Some examples of Schedule I drugs are: heroin, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), marijuana (cannabis), 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (ecstasy), methaqualone, and peyote The movie, by the way, is GREAT! It is an hour long. Set aside that time as if it were a Hollywood entertainment flick. You will be rewarded with something much, much better. While I knew […]

Conventional Medical Care Kills More People Than Heart Disease or Cancer

      Story at-a-glance The top 10 leading causes of death cost the U.S. economy $1.1 trillion, including not only direct medical care but also the indirect loss of productivity Conventional medical care was not listed as a top cause of death, even though research points to adverse drug reactions, medical errors, hospital-acquired infections, unnecessary procedures and other consequences of modern medicine as a leading cause of death Many of the leading causes of death, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and even infectious diseases like the flu can be warded off by a healthy lifestyle; imagine the lowered death toll, not to mention costs to the economy, if more people decided to take control of their health By […]

ALERT: It is worse than hot out there

Many of us have noticed that the sun seems intense this summer. A friend who works outdoors says he actually feels the sun abnormally burning, boring-into his skin. Another friend called yesterday reporting that their sophisticated photographic hobby drone refused to fly. It reported that: the electromagnetic field was too intense for the drone’s controls to operate. That took him to the Internet for investigation. Which, in turn, set him contacting friends to warn them about this intensity spike in solar energy reaching us. The Environmental Protection Agency publishes maps quantifying the intensity of sun rays striking our Earth. Reportedly, some places in Arizona and New Mexico are currently in a streak of unprecedented ratings of 14! The two maps […]

The Pentagon specializes in money consumption … defense? Nah.

The Saker published an excellent comparison of the Russian military capability to the USofA. It is a damnation of the military-industrial-complex grown fat, complacent and lazy. After three generations of bleeding the economy, spending more on military than the next 8 countries combined and attacking without repercussions around the globe, the Pentagon partners are completely unprepared as a DEFENSE INDUSTRY. They can offend world-wide, but that’s about it. The Saker nails it for us. I clipped part of it here, but go to the link to see the entire article. The other new revolutionary Russian weapons systems: ASATs     [This analysis was written for the Unz Review] It would not be an exaggeration to say that the March 1st, […]

AMA – be careful who you trust

The American Medical Association (AMA), founded in 1847 and incorporated in 1897 The AMA has also supported changes in medical malpractice law to limit damage awards Between 1998 and 2011, the AMA spent $264 million on lobbyists, second only to the American Chamber of Commerce. The AMA supported the War on Drugs, providing a medical rationale to clamp down on marijuana-use in the 1990s. —————————————————— True history: The AMA (American Medical Association) was built on racketeering and the pocketing of ‘non-profit’ profits (NaturalNews) The year is 1847. Physicians in America are not enjoying competing with inexpensive, natural remedies, which are offered by Indians and skilled midwives. These are remedies which are very effective but are not profitable, nor patentable, so […]
