SPECIAL SECTION: Message For Our “Friends” In The Middle Kingdom

I normally save this for near the end, but…basically…up your shit-kicking barbarian asses. Yes, barbarian! It took a bunch of sailors in Western Asia to invent a real alphabet instead of badly drawn cartoons to write with. So much for your “civilization.”

Yeah, the WORLD noticed you had to borrow the Latin alphabet to make Pinyin. Like with every other idea you had to steal from us “Foreign Devils” since you rammed your heads up your asses five centuries ago, you sure managed to bastardize it badly in the process.

Have you stopped eating bats yet? Are you shit-kickers still sleeping with farm animals?

Or maybe even just had the slightest inkling of treating lives as something you don’t just casually dispose of?

中国是个混蛋 !!!

China is asshoe !!!

And here’s my response to barbarian “asshoes” like you:

OK, with that rant out of my system…

Justice Must Be Done.

The prior election must be acknowledged as fraudulent, and steps must be taken to prosecute the fraudsters and restore integrity to the system.

Nothing else matters at this point. Talking about trying again in 2022 or 2024 is hopeless otherwise. Which is not to say one must never talk about this, but rather that one must account for this in ones planning; if fixing the fraud is not part of the plan, you have no plan.

OK now for the fine print.

This is the WQTH Daily Thread. You know the drill. There’s no Poltical correctness, but civility is a requirement. There are Important Guidelines,  here, with an addendum on 20191110.

Gold and Silver are holding steady…ridiculously so in fact. I read speculation that they’re going to bust out and surge. Why shouldn’t they? Inflation is galloping, the economy is headed for trouble once (some of) the companies out there actually stick to the jab mandate.

Platinum and palladium have taken decent jumps. Rhodium is up $800. That’s not too shabby either.

Personally? I’m liable to end up unemployed. I should buy a “I can’t afford to fix or replace this because of J** B*d*n” bumper sticker for my rear-ended car.

Part XXI: Nuclear Physics Uses The Hammer


Last time I said that this time I’d take up stars. But I did some preliminary research on the history, and realized that we’re not quite there from a historical standpoint as our narrative is basically in the 1930s (except when I run ahead to finish something that started in the 1930s, like I did with neutrinos).

So I’m going to pick up the story of neutrons. Discovered in 1932 by James Chadwick, they turn out to be the “other” nucleon in the nucleus, supplementing protons. Similar in mass but with no electric charge, they were the actual occupants of the place in the nucleus that we had imagined held proton-electron pairs.

Because a neutron bears no electric charge, it has no trouble getting close to a nucleus and sticking to it, whereas a proton is repelled by any nucleus it approaches. If it can get close enough it will stick…but first it has to get close enough, and that’s a challenge. The same is true of alpha particles (which are bundles of two protons and two neutrons).

The “sticking” is provided by the strong nuclear force.

It’s as if you had two magnets, and were trying to bring the north poles close together. They push each other apart pretty hard, but if the magnets were covered with velcro, they’d stick together…once you overcame that repulsion.

Free neutrons are basically a new form of radiation, by the way; we have alpha and beta radiation (that bundle of four nucleons, and an electron, respectively), gamma radiation (a very high energy photon, X-rays on steroids), and now, we have free neutrons.

Free neutrons are scary. They’ll simply wander around until they find a nucleus to stick to…and they will more than likely make that nucleus radioactive. I don’t mind being around alpha and beta sources (so long as they’re not inside of me); they’re trivial to shield against. Gamma rays are intimidating because they penetrate very thick shielding. All three of these, if they get to you, will blast some chemical bond to smithereens which can either mean nothing or cause big problems, depending on what it was they hit. They won’t make you radioactive. But the neutrons just sort of wander aimlessly through matter, unaffected by very much until they find a nucleus–and nuclei don’t take up much space, in fact they take up virtually none of it. Whatever nucleus they hit becomes a new (and likely radioactive) isotope.

That nucleus, with the extra neutron, may find itself with “too many” neutrons, and one of the neutrons will then change into a proton, via the weak force. This has the effect of making that atom a different element, the one next over to the right on your handy-dandy periodic table. That increases the atomic number, Z, by 1, while leaving the mass number (the total number of protons and neutrons) the same.

OK, that’s the end of the review. Now on with the story, which is complicated. I apologize in advance if this is completely un-followable. And if I somehow managed to garble it in trying to simplify it, I apologize for that as well. [Most of this is from the Wikipedia article on Lise Meitner, and the article on the discovery of fission.]


Nuclear physicists had all kinds of fun playing with neutrons through the 1930s (and beyond). Enrico Fermi, in Rome, made a hobby of bombarding different elements with neutrons to see what would happen; first creating a more neutron rich isotope of the starting element, then monitoring the beta decay, determining half lives and energies, which are different for each isotope. Sometimes there’d be multiple decays, because one wasn’t enough to get to a stable isotope.

Remember, each such beta decay moves you one to the right, to the next higher atomic number. This led to an irresistibly tantalizing question.

What happens if you pick the element with the highest atomic number, uranium with Z=92, and bombard it with neutrons?

Shouldn’t you get element 93, previously utterly unknown, in fact, previously nonexistent?

Fermi tried it. And he got a whole bunch of different kinds of beta radiation out of it. He concluded that he had created a “transuranic” element. Not so fast though. Aristid von Grosse suggested that what Fermi had found was a new isotope of protactinium (element 91, not 93). This “wait a minute” wasn’t enough to prevent Fermi’s winning the 1938 Nobel Prize for Physics for this work, not just with uranium but the other elements as well.

But there was enough controversy that someone needed to dig in and figure out if we were looking at element 93 or protactinium.

And who better to do that than Lise Meitner and Otto Hahn, the discoverers of protactinium? Their collaboration at Kaiser Wilhelm institute in Berlin had lapsed, but this question got the two of them back together. From 1934-1938 the two of them, along with Otto Frisch, dug into the matter.

Initially, Meitner and Hahn believed they had created elements 93, 94, 95 and even 96. But as time went on Meitner became less certain.

Part of the muddle came from the fact that it was wrongly believed that only the lanthanide elements had that special row at the bottom of the table, pulled out from the main body so it would fit nicely on a landscape piece of paper. Actinium was placed two spots below yttrium, thorium below hafnium, protactinium below tantalum and uranium below tungsten (or as the Germans called it, “wolfram”). Indeed the chemical behavior of these elements could be a bit confusing, but it would eventually turn out that that stopped with element 93, which behaved more like a lanthanide. That whole sequence of elements in fact belonged in a second footnote row below the lanthanides.

For example, Fermi had found a rhenium-like element in his experiments and, in the belief that element 93 was directly below rhenium in the periodic table, concluded that that is what he had found. (In fact, he had found technetium, the then-undiscovered element above rhenium in the table, and didn’t realize it–but I’m getting ahead of myself here.)

This mistaken belief, at the time, bunged up any attempt to chemically analyze the products of the neutron bombardment. When element 93 is expected to behave like rhenium, for instance, rather than like a rare earth, it’s kind of difficult to figure out what’s going on.

One thing Meitner and Hahn wer fairly confident of: when they bombarded uranium, which was mostly uranium-238 (92 protons and 146 neutrons), they were indeed getting, as step one, uranium-239, with a 23 minute half life. They were able to do chemistry on it and prove that it was, indeed uranium.

After that it was a muddle. There seemed to be three different reactions, all from uranium-239, one with a ten second half life, one with a twenty second half life, and one with a 23 minute half life.

In 1937 Meitner and Hahn each published a report. Hahn was emphatic that they had found transuranic elements (“Above all, their chemical distinction from all previously known elements needs no further discussion”); Meitner was pretty certain almost everything was a product of uranium-238, somehow, but figured the three most prominent products were isomers.

Er, what’s an isomer?

As if it isn’t difficult enough to recall that elements come in isotopes, with the same number of protons but different number of neutrons, it turns out that some of the isotopes themselves come in different forms, some more energetic than others, and that the more energetic form eventually just blasts out pure energy (a gamma ray photon) and settles down to become the less energetic, and (usually) more stable form, having kept all of its protons and neutrons intact (but, likely, having dropped mass a bit). An isotope like this gets an “m” after the number.

For example, consider protactinium-234m, which has a 1.17 minute half life, and ejects a photon as it settles down to become protactinium-234, with a half life of 6.70 hours. When Pa-234m was discovered in 1913, we weren’t clear on the concept of isotopes, so it was considered a new element and named brevium for its brief half life.

When “regular” Pa-234 was discovered in 1921, that marked the discovery of nuclear isomers; it was the first such distinction between an “m” isotope and a “regular” isotope. And, interestingly, the discoverer was Otto Hahn, who later on in 1937 found his colleague using the concept to argue against his interpretation of the U-239 decay products!

[Side note: Probably the most useful isomer today is technetium-99m. It’s a decay product of molybdenum-99, which has about a 30 hour half life. Mo-99 is sent to hospitals, which extract the Tc-99m chemically, embed it in larger molecules, perhaps favored by muscles, then inject that into patients and watch where the gamma rays come from. This can be used to diagnose heart problems, though it does mean the patient is a source of gamma rays for a while. Tc-99m has a six hour half life, after which it blasts out a fairly weak gamma ray and settles down to Tc-99, which has a much longer half life (hundreds of thousands of years) and will ultimately beta decay and become ruthenium-99. The patient generally gets rid of the technetium-99 within days, so no digging up bodies to try to get the ruthenium, please.]

Meitner concluded her report with the following:  “The process must be neutron capture by uranium-238, which leads to three isomeric nuclei of uranium-239. This result is very difficult to reconcile with current concepts of the nucleus.”

Another group in Paris decided to investigate as well. They ultimately found a product that was chemically very similar to lanthanum (element 57). (It turned out it couldn’t be more similar, as it was lanthanum, but I get ahead of myself again.)

Did I just almost forget to mention Meitner was Jewish?

What does that matter? Normally it wouldn’t matter in the slightest, but in mid 1930s Berlin, it mattered a great deal. And it was mattering more and more as time passed.

Meitner Has To Flee

Meitner had been kept safe, somewhat, by the fact that she was an Austrian, but on March 12, 1938, Austria was annexed by Germany. Her Austrian citizenship was moot as there was no Austria to be a citizen of. Niels Bohr and Paul Scherrer invited her to take positions in Denmark and Switzerland, respectively, but Carl Bosch at KWI said she could remain. By May, though, Meitner learned that her situation was being looked at by the no-doubt misnamed Reich Ministry of Science, Education and Culture.

Although many people outside of Germany wanted to give her refuge, there were all sorts of bureaucratic snafus. For instance, she couldn’t go to Denmark no matter how much Niels Bohr wanted her there, because Denmark considered Austrian passports to be invalid. Germany also forbade academics to leave the country.

By July the situation was critical. Dirk Coster, a Dutch scientist, convinced the Netherlands to accept Meitner, and on July 12, she showed up for work at KWI as usual, staying late to mark up an associate’s paper for publication. The next day she and Coster took a train on a lightly used rail line to the Dutch border. Otto Hahn had given her his mother’s ring and “Frau Professor” was apparently thought to be the wife of the Dutch professor, so the German border guards didn’t stop her. She got out, with ten marks and her summer clothes, and the ring she could sell for money if needed. (The story is much more complex, and given in the Wikipedia article on Meitner.)

Once Meitner was safely out of Nazi Germany, work continued long-distance. Hahn and Strassman at KWI decided to try to replicate the Paris group’s results, and found what they thought was radium (element 88).

Figuring that the neutron hitting uranium-238 was creating uranium-239, which then gave up two alpha particles to become radium-231, they dug a little more carefully, and decided to extract the radium from the sample.

Radium lies directly under barium (element 56) on the periodic table (it was properly understood back then, unlike uranium), and the two elements have an affinity with each other. If there was any radium in the products, barium could be used to draw it out, then it could be separated from the barium without interference from all the other “stuff” in the sample.

Indeed, the barium came out radioactive, indicating that there was radium in it. So it looked like they had found their radium, and the two alpha decays.

But then they couldn’t separate the radium from the barium.

The extraction process used was tested by putting known samples of radium into the barium, and they were separated out without any trouble.

The Light Dawns

Finally they were forced to conclude that the reason they couldn’t find any radium in the barium, is that it was barium.

A radioactive isotope of element 56 was coming out of uranium-239.

Meitner and Frisch finally realized that what was happening. They had gotten together for Christmas in 1838, and were out cross-country skiing having a rather atypical conversation.

What if, they thought, the uranium nucleus were simply splitting? The prevailing model of the nucleus was called the “liquid drop” model, treating it as similar to a drop of liquid; if it were under enough tension that it wanted to break up, a neutron could add just enough “oomph” to happen, just like a very large drop of water wants to split into smaller drops. (Incidentally the liquid drop model, though not the most advanced model, is still good enough to be of some use today.)

However the two pieces would find themselves outside the range of the strong nuclear force, and repel each other quite forcefully. About 200 million electron volts–about a fifth the mass/energy of a proton–would be released as the two pieces flew apart. Where would it come from?

Meitner was able to figure out that the two pieces’ binding energy was high enough compared to the uranium’s binding energy that the 200 MeV would be supplied by that.

It fit.

Nuclear fission was real.

Uranium could be induced to split and release a lot of energy. The lanthanum, technetium and barium were real. It just depended on exactly how the split happened, which particular smaller elements you’d get.

When Frisch told Niels Bohr of this, Bohr literally smacked his own forehead and exclaimed, “What idiots we have been!”

Fermi was also embarrassed; that part of his work bombarding things with neutrons that had to do with uranium turned out to be misinterpreted, and the 1938 Nobel prize he had just been told he would receive was in part awarded for his transuranium “discoveries.” Just in time though; he added a footnote to his acceptance speech to explain what they had just figured out.

In the fullness of time, it developed that those 10 and 20 second reactions Meitner, Hahn and Frisch were seeing were fission products. But the 23 minute reaction really was a decay into element 93, isotope 239.

And it was the small amount of uranium-235 that was fissioning, not the uranium-238.

And we now had a new form of radioactive decay: fission, spontaneous fission. Uranium 236’s most common decay mode is this.

The Bomb

The rest of the story is much more famous, though at the time it was shrouded in secrecy. The US government, alerted by none other than Albert Einstein’s letter to FDR concerning the potential of such massive releases of energy, created the Manhattan Project to build a nuclear bomb.

Much of this early research had been done in Nazi Germany. What if they, too, were working on The Bomb?

It turns out that when uranium-235 is hit by a fairly slow moving neutron, it becomes, for just an instant, uranium-236, which is what fissions into two large pieces. But there are also two or three bare neutrons released; if they can be slowed down and then induced to hit more uranium-235, you can have a chain reaction, each step doubling or even tripling the energy release as more and more uranium-235 catches neutrons and releases yet more neutrons.

However, you need a fairly substantial amount of U-235 for this to work. If it’s a small lump of the stuff, the freed neutrons will probably exit the sample before they find a nucleus to hit. There’s a critical mass that must be brought together for the chain reaction to take off.

The bigger difficulty, of course was that uranium-235 is only a small fraction, less than one percent, of uranium.

So one of the two approaches taken was to try to extract “enriched” uranium-235 from uranium by reacting the uranium with fluorine to create uranium hexafluoride gas, which could then be centrifuged to separate out the slightly lighter U-235. This work was done at Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Once you have the enriched uranium-235, it’s dead easy to make a bomb. Bring two small masses together, enough to make a critical mass, make sure there’s a neutron source nearby, and, KABOOM!!

The other approach involved those transuranics. Uranium-239 was beta decaying into neptunium-239; neptunium 239 was in turn beta decaying into plutonium-239. The two new elements were named to continue the series. Uranium had been named after the planet uranus; the next two elements were named after neptune and pluto (then believed to be a planet).

And it turns out that plutonium-239 is easy to produce; just bombard regular uranium with neutrons–and it too will fission when struck by a neutron. The trick is to get enough of it together close enough that the excess neutrons will find another plutonium-239 atom before exiting the mass. As it happens, Pu-239 must be compressed for it to work. And getting that to happen precisely right was a challenge.

It’s a good thing that the easy-to-make bomb requires the hard-to-make material, and the easy to make material is hard to make a bomb out of.

But we did both.

The U-235 bomb was deemed so simple it wouldn’t need a test. Thus it was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 (Germany had surrendered in May of that year, after millions had given their lives to put the mad dictator Hitler down). It worked beautifully, releasing energy equivalent to about 20 thousand tons of TNT, all at once.

The Pu-239 bomb, however, was the first nuclear detonation. It was tested at Trinity site in New Mexico on July 16th, then a second example was dropped on Nagasaki on August 9th.

The bombs killed tens of thousands of people, but likely saved at least ten times as many lives. Had the United States needed to invade the Japanese home islands, there likely would have been two million casualties.

The neutron had gone from being an abstract thing cared about only by some physicists trying to figure out what keeps atoms together…to something as impossible to ignore as a slap across the face.

And this wasn’t even the end of that road.

We have no end of parties who would “mess with us”. Again, it depends on who is saying what. To complicate things, the same “error glitch” can throw three different error messages to three different people looking at it.



OK, it’s cryptography.

When you’re trying to establish a trusted link on a non-trusted network, you play with a “nonce” to give your other party something to play with and hand back to you. It’s part of a protocol between two or more players.

The meaning of “nonce not valid” depends on which player is saying it.

Mostly yes.
and FYI over here a nonce is a rock spider/ paedo


That is quite amusing. It’s funny how the rest of the world thinks we speak the same language.

OK, so Wikipoo’s articles on this are overall quite suboptimal. First, you have https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cryptographic_nonce , which sort-of defines it in a way that it might be used for practically anything.

In the article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transport_Layer_Security , which purports to document the process where it probably bit you, “nonce” occurs precisely once in a sad muddled stew of incomprehensible glorp. The usage is in: “In May 2016, it was reported that dozens of Danish HTTPS-protected websites belonging to Visa Inc. were vulnerable to attacks allowing hackers to inject malicious code and forged content into the browsers of visitors.[266] The attacks worked because the TLS implementation used on the affected servers incorrectly reused random numbers (nonces) that are intended to be used only once, ensuring that each TLS handshake is unique.”

In order to appreciate just what is going on, I’d recommend https://www.cloudflare.com/learning/ssl/what-happens-in-a-tls-handshake/ — which has no uses of “nonce”, but uses better language with “client random”, “server random”, and “premaster secret”, all of which might be considered nonces.

This also clarifies why it is so important to understand WHO is saying “nonce not valid” in order to interpret the error message.

I love pumpkin soup.
When I was a child a East Prussian grandmother adopted me she made the best pumpkin soup.
I learned how to spin wool and knit socks from her. I was poor as hell material wise as kid but very rich with good people in my life and experiences one cannot buy with money.
God is good He put good people thougout my life I am able to draw from the good that life offers that gives life. The simple life is the biggest gift God gives to us.

do you happen to have your Grandmother’s pumpkin soup recipe ?

pretty please ?


I wish I did. I have made pumpkin soup but never taste the same as hers.
She was not my grandmother but I called her that and she embraced me like her own.
I was blessed many people were my grandpa and ants and uncles even though we were not related. My family had issues not good parents but people but I was loved by many people. I was poor but I was rich 🙂


If I find a good pumpkin soup I share. Need to get on the German search engine.


 👍  💞 


If you are interested I found the East Prussian pumpkin soup on Internet. The recipe is in German I can translate.
The sweet pumpkin soup is a cross of dessert and soup.
One can find normal P soups on internet made with chicken stock and some have apple in. That seems more traditional soups


the East Prussian recipe !

thanks !


I found a recipe that had also English here is the URL Let me know if it works for you ?



Love it almost looks like my collection 🙂

I remember having one of those “genius of Disney” moments when I first encountered the Ohana restaurant at WDW.

“Food on a stick over a fire” has been the prototypical form of cooking since Homo erectus [“H. erectus is associated with the Acheulean stone tool industry, and is postulated to have been the earliest human ancestor capable of using fire {emph added}, hunting and gathering in coordinated groups, caring for injured or sick group members, and possibly seafaring and art” — Wikipoo].

It is generally held that the bulk of modern lifestyles are descended from six cradles of civilization — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cradle_of_civilization . “Food on a stick over a fire” was valid in all six, and continues to be valid today worldwide.

WDW was designed for a substantially more international mix of guests. It is old-style Disney genius that they included a restaurant with THE most universal cuisine on the planet to cater to all guests. Of course, then they dressed it up in some goofball pseudo-Polynesian trappings….

But, assuming you showered and clothed them, you could have Homo erectus, Neanderthals, Cro-Magnons, Incas, Olmecs, Egyptians, Sumerians, Harappans, and Xia Dynasty Chinese scattered throughout the dining room and notice them just as much as the Japanese, Arabians, Europeans, and Hispanics that are actually there today (amongst the non-Domestic US guests).

IIRC, however, they actually use a hardwood firepit instead of a volcanic vent. That might have been a bridge too far with their Polynesian theming.

The New Zealand maoris have been cooking in steam vents since they got there.
seriously, when you first go to Rotorua (highly active area) the first thing you notice is the stench of sulpha. It is literally retch inducing. After 24 hours you can’t smell it at all and you can eat food cooked in steam vents and only taste the food flavours.
they have one of the earliest geothermal power station at Waikato.

Well, the other thing we used to do with marshmallows when we were kids is put them on a stick, and hold the marshmallow directly in the fire, until it caught fire.

At which point you had a kind of sticky flaming napalm that would stick to anything you flung it at.

Or just use the stick to launch the flaming marshmallow up into the night sky, like a Roman Candle.

So… good weather for marshmallows… 👍😂


And hope the fuck it didn’t land on you. Or someone else’s land on you. Even if the flame went out it burnt like hell


Lots of volcanic activity the past few months.

So I did a little checking…

Moderna hasn’t been around very long.

Moderna – Wikipedia

…………….From Wikipoo:

In 2010, ModeRNA Therapeutics was formed to commercialize the research of stem cell biologist Derrick Rossi. Rossi had discovered the works of Hungarian biochemist Katalin Karikó on RNA-mediated immune activation, which resulted in the co-discovery with American immunologist Drew Weissman of the nucleoside modifications that suppress the immunogenicity of RNA. This technology would later be licensed and used by Moderna and BioNTech to develop COVID-19 vaccines.[14]
In March 2013, Moderna and AstraZeneca signed a five-year exclusive option agreement to discover, develop, and commercialize mRNA for treatments in the therapeutic areas of cardiovascular, metabolic, and renal diseases, and selected targets for cancer.

In 2018, the company rebranded as “Moderna Inc.” and further increased its portfolio of vaccine development

The Moderna COVID‑19 vaccine (pINN: elasomeran[33]), codenamed mRNA-1273 and sold under the brand name Spikevax,[34] is a COVID-19 vaccine developed by American company Moderna, the United States National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA). It is authorized for use in people aged twelve years and older in some jurisdictions and for people eighteen years and older in other jurisdictions to provide protection against COVID-19 which is caused by infection by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.[35][34][36][37] It is designed to be administered as two or three 0.5 mL doses given by intramuscular injection at an interval of at least 28 days apart.[38][39][40][41]

It is an RNA vaccine composed of nucleoside-modified mRNA (modRNA) encoding a spike protein of SARS-CoV-2, which is encapsulated in lipid nanoparticles.[42]

Moderna and Theranos have a lot of similarities at the founding and board levels. GLOWING similarities.


Hy am I not surprised?


Clip from Hannity’s thursday night show:





And if you haven’t had Covid, you don’t need to take the vaccine either.

So in conclusion, whether you’ve had Covid or you haven’t, you don’t need to take the vaccine — and you shouldn’t.

Why would you turn yourself into a medical experiment for Big Pharma and their untested experimental gene-therapy project?

Nevermind the Nazi lawlessness of experimenting on humans without their knowledge or consent, but they’re making billions, and they’re not even paying you a nickel to be their lab rat.

Why would you want to be a volunteer lab rat for Big Pharma?

Were you dropped on your head when you were little?

Or… more recently?

If this is correct I can see some things differently.


Revolution that is new news !!!


I think they just seized on that loose word but he de-fanged them and the fake news.


They are making an example of him so no other will critique the military .
The military knows they are participating in an silent revolution in this country. The takeover is apparent and without the military this would not happen. They project what they are doing on their victims just like Stalin.


Buried in the article is Scheller calling out Marine Corps, General McKenzie, Commander Central Command.

^^^^ Marine Corps protecting its turf. A major aspect in the butt hurt feelings over Scheller calling out the ENTIRE Chain of Command over Afghanistan debacle.

First time I’ve seen US prices higher than here…
Not that the greens aren’t trying (in a number of ways…)…..


When I moved to US gas was 25cent-35cent a gallon same as bread I think my memory is not failing me ?
Anyone remember?


Yes I came in 64.
Ha my husband’s first job he made $95 a week.
So prices were accordingly.


San Jose, CA. Started driving in 71. So, it was 71-72. Routinely paid $.30- $.35. Occasionally ranged $.25 – $.35. A brief period, gas was in the teens. Lowest I ever paid was $.14, on one occasion. Many a run to Santa Cruz. 🙂

Teenager flipping burgers in them days, always hawked the cheapo gas stations.


singing…I worked in Palo Alto from early 70s to early 80s. Lived in Santa Cruz, and my commute was 112 miles a day round trip.
i clearly remember gasoline being $.25/gallon.
and waiting in line for 45 minutes to tank up.
Not a memory problem.


Oh good it seemed like a nice dream. 🙂

Gail Combs

Yes, I remember. In the 1950s and 60s. Went up to $0.60 in the seventies with the oil FAUX embargo. (Trucker told mr the NJ refineries didn’t know where to put all the gas. the panic WAS ALL MADE UP in order to increase the price dramatically.)


WTH ever happened to gas wars?

Cuppa Covfefe

And the stuff they used to give you (as did the banks)…

Steak knives, books, glasses, etc. And they’d send out a grease-monkey (or apprentice) or two to clean the windshield, check oil and water (and top up, if needed), and sometimes even clean the other windows and/or check your tire pressure. AND pump the gas, too…..

Back in the good old days, when the customer was king (or queen) [and KNEW WHICH ONE THEY WERE!!!]…

What happened?????

Seems all that money floating around back then floated away from us… into the pockets of the Hyper-Rich…

We used to drive coast-to-coast every summer (but one) between 1960 and 1973… and that on ONE INCOME. And we neither starved to death, nor slept in fleabag motels, nor scrimped on seeing attractions/museums/etc. And Stuckey’s Pecan Log Rolls were not out of reach either… sigh….

We don’t just need the diamonds back; we need the pearls, rubies, emeralds, and all the other gems that we used to have back in the 1950s and 1960s that the deep state took away…

Just looked it up. Gorda by the sea resort area. Just north of san simeon ie Hearst Castle area. They are the only place until you get to Big Sur then on to Carmel and Monterey.
They are engaging in gouging which is reportable, but good luck getting the state to help.

According to the reviews, whoever owns this place engages in routine unchecked gouging. $5 can drinks that run 2 bucks, charging for bathroom use with purchases, etc.

They’ve always been high and gougers… and then go back to Highway 1 and get stuck behind “the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion on wheels” for the rest of the way (or most of it)…

If 8 go up that way as beautiful as it is, its a long long drive to Monterey. Ill just cruise the 101 and the five.


The coast road between Los Angeles (Pacific Coast Highway) and San Francisco (Highway 1) is one of the most beautiful drives on the planet.

It’s also quite dangerous, challenging, prone to road closures, and slow (it’s almost impossible to do in one day) — not to mention that there are a couple of day’s worth of adventures just off the road — like Malibu, downtown Santa Barbara, Hearst Castle, Big Sur, Carmel, Monterey, and Santa Cruz.


We went up pch to hearst and then to carmel. One of my top 5 drives ever. And a nice trip.


Past big sur not sure where we saw a few cars parked at the side of the road. I made mr gil stop. It was a little trail going inland, not on the beach. Turns out it was a beautiful little creek and pond. A slight hike just further back wS a natural hot springs. On the walk it i was covered with 🐞. Natures beautiful moments.

Father God, I now follow your command to put on the full armor of God, because my battle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, authorities, the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the unseen world.

I first pray on the Belt of Truth that it may be buckled around my waist, may I be centered and encircled by your truth dear Lord. Hem me inside all that is true and right, and may I be protected and held up by the truth of your living word, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Breastplate of righteousness, please protect my vital organs and my inner man, cover my integrity, my spirit, and my soul. Guard my heart for it is the wellspring of life, please strengthen and guard the most vulnerable places in my life with that which is right, good, and noble that I might not receive a fatal blow from the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Gospel Shoes of Peace. I choose to stand in the shoes of your good news, and on the firm foundation of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the solid eternal rock. All other ground is sinking sand, I pray that I will not slip or fall, but that my feet would be firmly fitted on your lordship, my Lord Jesus. I choose to stand on you, so that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus, the eternal Rock of Ages. I receive your holy peace now my Lord, from the sole of my feet to the crown of my head, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray the Shield of Faith into my hand now. As I take up the shield of faith, I ask that you might extinguish every dart and arrow, that is launched from the enemy to take me down spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and every attempt of the enemy to destroy my joy. I ask that my faith in you would make it flame out. Extinguish every flaming arrow that would come against me, my life, my family, my home, or my ministry. May my faith always be out in front of me like a shield. Give me the courage to “faith my fears” by choosing to walk by faith and not by sight, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Helmet of Salvation, that you might protect my mind from the thoughts that can lead me astray. I choose to take every thought captive, and arrest all intentioned ideas and motives that would harm others, or distract me from your holy will for me. I submit every captured thought to the Lordship of my Lord Jesus Christ, and ask that you would imprison those thoughts that are not of you my Lord. Transform my mind and renew my thinking that I may think God thoughts, and have a sober mind that is focused on your glory. Please protect me from being double minded that I may allow my mind, I reject to live an earthly life, because I choose to live a holy one, governed by you My Lord Jesus, the prince of peace, please have my mind to be saturated with the holy mind of Christ, in my Lord Jesus name.

Finally, I take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the holy word of God, I pray this powerful offensive weapon into my hand, and ask that your holy word would be fitting for every encounter I face. As the enemy gets close to me, please give me the insight, wisdom, and skill to wield the word of God to drive away the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

May the enemy and his team flee from me, upon hearing the word of God spoken by the power and direction of the Holy Spirit. Give me the sword of the spirit to cut through the wiles of the devil, so that I may discern the schemes of the enemy when he is near.

With all kinds of prayers, supplication, and intercession I pray to you my Lord God as the one who fights my battles. Now that I’m in your holy powerful armor, I walk away covered and ready to face my day as you go before me, and please protect me in the midst of the spiritual warfare in this unseen world, in my Lord Jesus name.

Thank you my Lord, for the spiritual weapons of armor and prayer that you have given me. It is written no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses me.

Thank you Father God, my Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit, that I am more than a conqueror in my Lord Jesus. I pray all of this in the mighty name of my Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ, amen.

Archbishop Viganò: Vaccines made with fetal tissue are a ‘human sacrifice of innocent victims offered to Satan’
‘The most innocent and defenseless creature, the baby in the womb in the third month of gestation, is sacrificed and dismembered in order to extract tissue from his still palpitating body with which to produce a non-cure, a non-vaccine, which not only does not heal from the virus, but in all likelihood causes a greater percentage of death than Covid itself, especially in the elderly or those who are sick.’

My Sherwin Williams buddy says after weeks of circling the ports, containers are put in 30day quarantine (WuFlu) at/near the port before they’re made accessible. A huge amount of paint ingredients/additives, solvents, etc., come from Europe and Asshoes. Alternatively, they can load a plane and have inventory delivered PRONTO for $20K a trip with no delay. Guess WuFlu doesn’t enter US on cargo planes.🙄
They’re out of many products for the automotive industry with no date in sight of inventory replenishment. As you know, WuFlu and lack of electricity has caused manufacturing to slow/cease in other parts of the world. Other big manufacturers are faring even worse and trying to buy inventory from them. So much for globalization eh? The whole world suffers, especially the US because we sent our mfg over there. Remember when the highest bidder got the PPE first???
So FYI, don’t have a wreck! You may not get your car back very quickly because they don’t have the ingredients to paint your parts to match your vehicle. And oh yeah, they’re implementing their 3rd price increase(11%) for the year this month, so expect price of repairs, Insurance premiums, and new cars to increase. After all, Big Corporations don’t just suck up higher taxes, they pass them down to their customers, me and you. More Build Back Better Bidenflation Bull$hit $$$!! 🤬 🤬

Yep. Spot on post. good insights. A little clarification on the “quarantine” required before entering port.

Merchant Mariner son has been on a two ships. Seven month obligation on each ship. He has told me quarantine varies between country. Usually five to seven days. Has been two weeks. This usually, not always, INCLUDES time at sea from the last port.

CA and other dumb ass states may dictate 30 day quarantine. But at some point, the backlog balances out and becomes fairly steady.

With Fall arriving, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New year, ports are prolly the busiest of the year.

My grandfather in West-by-God, who farmed for most of his 96 years in addition to his regular job, wouldn’t eat bananas unless they were pretty much brown. Said they were sweeter that way. I figure he knew what he was talking about, as he (and my Dad) could grow anything; they could probably make bricks take root…

[Folks over here think bananas are ripe when they’re still green. If they get brown, they get pitched… sigh… ]


Grocery store bananas are never the same after you’ve eaten an apple banana, or an ice cream banana, or any of the other varieties that grow in tropical places like Hawaii. And most of them you eat when they are brown.

Years ago, my Dad gave me 7 little banana plants from his neighbor across the street. I planted in my back yard. They spread like crazy! Took many years, but i finally got a stalk. I cut it down and let it ripen on the back porch. I had no idea if they were edible. My Dad came over and had to eat one in front of me to convince me. OMG!!! Those little things are some of the MOST DELICIOUS fruit I’ve ever had!!! 🤸‍♀️ 🤸‍♀️ 🤸‍♀️
I’ve finally learn to go look for petals of that flower on the ground, then look up to see if there’s a stalk. Haven’t had any for many years. The plants only make bananas if they get YUGE!! The plants die back in the winter and come back bigger the following year. BUT, if you have a freeze, that seems to set them back to zero and they need 2 years before they get big enough to produce fruit. So this year Texas had an Ice Age and there was no summer fruit. If this winter is mild w/no freeze, I could have some yumminess next summer. 🤞 😋 🤞
