  1. Cherry Pitting

    I found this online last year. An empty wine bottle and a chop stick together makes a wonderful cherry pit removal system. Place your cherry on the opening of the wine bottle stem side up push the pit out with the chop stick. That's it, worked better then the wife's squeezy plier type pit remover.
  2. shotguns

    The Shotgun I recently read a couple of “survive anything” books. They said little of the shotgun. I would be remiss if I failed to remind people: 1) assume every firearm is loaded. 2) Always control the muzzle (which way it is pointed.) 3)Know what your target is and what is behind it. 4) Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot. Shotguns : For the most part shotguns have smooth- unrifled- barrels (bores). Shotguns for large game may have rifling-...
  3. I reached 48 years with my bride this morning

    Today, Nancy and I reached a milestone. 48 years of being married. It's a little hard for me to fathom that, but it is real, and we both arrived at this threshold together this morning. As I look back on those years it stuns me to realize how much of the proverbial water has crossed under those many bridges we crossed getting to today. It has been a journey we both undertook together, initially, hand in hand, with smiles on our faces. I took her with me through a fast-moving era of Rock and...
  4. Remembering what it used to be like

    I’m old enough to remember the Civil Rights activists, the white lines painted on the floors in the buses, the “Whites Only” signs everywhere in the south. There was change of course, and it came at a price of murders, beatings, arsons, civil discord, riots, and much more too lengthy to describe here fully. It taught me a lesson I only read about prior to this era happening and the time frame where I lived. This is that message; read it loud and clear; The only civil change that will happen...
  5. We are destroying our culture and country by our vote

    I don’t consider myself anyone special or exceptional. I’m simply an old guy who has managed to get by in a world full of vipers, thieves and liars successfully. I am much like you in that I consider myself lucky, because, I managed to make it through the thick of it one more day. I’ve been lucky; I’ve been around the world a couple of times, largely without any serious mishaps. During those travels it has been my fortune to have met a lot of different people. Most of them were just like...
  6. enough- rules /the law and stopping mass shootings

    Stop the Killing - Let’s Get Smarter! The beginning is dry, however, it is important to have some idea of what is. Our first actual gun laws were state and local laws. Some of these were like NYC’s Sullivan Law. This was enacted to keep guns out of the hands of the political opposition by the Tammany Hall Gang. In 1927, the US Postal Service made it illegal to ship concealable firearms. In 1934, was the National Firearms Act of 1934-5 (It seems to be called the...
  7. driving screws and lag screws wo electricity

    Driving Screws and Lag Screws without Electricity This sems sorta funny, but I just finished one survival book and in it the author recommended an electric drill with spare batteries. This seems normal, what about next week or a month rrom now? My dad was apprenticed to a carpenter in te late ‘’30s ( the Great Depression Era) . Upon his return from WW II he went to work for a mining company as a carpenter and was at it for the next 35 years. He built our home doing not only the...
  8. The real world.

    This was sent to me by a friend recently. She is a bright young Medical Doctor today. It isn't meant to cast aspersions on anyone, it is simply a fact of life. I hope it is read and taken in that light. What I Learned in the Peace Corps in Africa: Trump Is Right! By Karin? January 17, 2018 Three weeks after college, I flew to Senegal, West Africa, to run a community center in a rural town. Life was placid, with no danger, except to your health. That danger was considerable, because it was,...
  9. A Worldwide Depression May Be Coming

    Could it really happen? Let's take a look at a few facts and see if that's possible. The world standard today is the dollar. I live close to Panama and they don’t use anything but the dollar. No matter where you go in the world, everybody accepts the dollar as payment for every sort of goods imaginable. You cannot do that with all currency, that is to say, travel worldwide, and spend another country’s currency in stores, and other places in a different country other than your own. Here in...
  10. "The Gift of Time"

    Something to think about. The last wishes of Alexander the Great........ On his deathbed, Alexander summoned his army generals and told them his three ultimate wishes: 1. The best doctors should carry his coffin ... 2. The wealth he has accumulated (money, gold, precious stones) should be scattered along the procession to the cemetery .... 3. His hands should be let loose, so they hang outside the coffin for all to see! One of his generals who was surprised by these unusual requests...
  11. Reflections

    Not often these days do I reflect on what I am and how I got here, but I did today. I thought about the water that has flowed past the old bridge everyone talks about and I decided to reflect for a moment here living out the last of my life in a warm climate. First, as I looked into the eyes of the woman I have shared these past forty-seven years with. I realized what a wondrous gift God has allowed me to have being with her. I didn’t realize it so much at one time, but awhile ago I did...
  12. Our Nation is Broken

    Let me justify this statement by offering some glaring examples of where America stands today as viewed by other Americans in the world: Our schools are broken. They teach anti-American rhetoric to the young impressionable students by people who are embedded in a Marxist culture. The mindset where American values, cultures, and accomplishments are disparaged on a regular basis. Rather than teach how great America is for its wondrous and monumental accomplishments, many teachers chose as...
  13. Equal Justice Under the Law

    Until our laws are equally applied to ALL people, regardless of their station in life, our country will never be safe from lawlessness. If you do the crime, it is long pastime you get indicted, criminally charged, and are required as we all are to hire an attorney, and suffer the process all the way to the end. If you are found guilty of treason, when it is all done and over with, you should be legally hanged by your neck until you are dead. Consequences are what make the laws work for...
  14. A Rose Speaks of Love

    A rose speaks of love silently in a language known only to the heart. When you give roses to her, the thought is eternal and the perfume is endless. She will know the gift is from the heart when it is roses. I sent my Nancy eleven roses when I first met her. She was a ballerina and was dancing with a New York Ballet Company, I was a Crop Duster Pilot, the competition was tough for her attention. My enclosed card read, "Regretfully I could not find a twelfth as beautiful as you, so I had to...
  15. Civil War is Coming to America

    At this late date it is inevitable. Because of a number of factors that are ongoing in the US President Trump will most likely be the last Republican President to be elected to office in the near future that is, until the next Civil War has run its course. Here is why: Illegal Immigration is one of the major catalysts that will end a free and legal election in America. The deck is being stacked right now to make sure the Democrats will win from now on. They will steal every election in the...
