2022·04·09 Joe Biden Didn’t Win Daily Thread

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

You knuckle-dragging barbarians are still trying to muck with this site, so I’ll just repeat what I said last time.

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 !!!
Zhōngguò shì gè hùndàn !!!
China is asshoe !!!

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

OK, with that rant out of my system…

Loop it if you like; I will wait.

Richly deserved.

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.

Lawyer Appeasement Section

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.

We have a new board – called The U Tree – where people can take each other to the woodshed without fear of censorship or moderation.

And remember Wheatie’s Rules:

1. No food fights
2. No running with scissors.
3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.
4. Zeroth rule of gun safety: Don’t let the government get your guns.
5. Rule one of gun safety: The gun is always loaded.
5a. If you actually want the gun to be loaded, like because you’re checking out a bump in the night, then it’s empty.
6. Rule two of gun safety: Never point the gun at anything you’re not willing to destroy.
7. Rule three: Keep your finger off the trigger until ready to fire.
8. Rule the fourth: Be sure of your target and what is behind it.

James Webb Space Telescope Update

A lot of material has been written by the JWST team. The mirrors are lined up and focused, but they need to be focused for all five of the sensors behind the mirror before they can do the next iteration of fine-tuning. But that has only been done for four of them. What’s the issue? The issue is that the Mid-InfraRed Instrument (MIRI) has been blind until very recently.

The other four instruments have gotten down to their desired operating temperatures of 34 to 39 kelvins. (And I discussed kelvins last week. Very convenient timing!) But they all work in either long wavelength visible light (oranges and reds) or “near infrared.” “Near” because it’s right next to visible wavelengths, just a bit longer than our eyes can see. But objects at room temperature actually glow at some of these frequencies, so in order to keep the sensor itself from glowing in the very light it’s trying to see, we keep them cooled off.

But the longer the wavelength (and lower the frequency) we want to see, the colder we have to make the instrument. Mid Infrared is longer than near infrared, so we have to cool MIRI down to about 7 kelvins or less. From MIRIs point of view the rest of the spacecraft, at -390 to -399 F, is scorching hot!

This is done with cryogenic cooling, using helium. Apparently at least some of the power on board the spacecraft runs what is essentially a refrigerator, and we’ve been running that and allowing MIRI to slowly, slowly cool down to -450 F. We don’t want to cool it off too fast lest frost form on the sensor (which would FUBAR it).

This whole process is described here.

From what I can see MIRI is actually at this temperature now, so the mirror adjusting fun can resume.

What use is MIRI? It’s expected to be able to look at stars–and their accompanying planets–as they form. For instance, we’ve all seen “the Pillars of Creation” as imaged by Hubble, which is actually a part of the Eagle nebula.

The Pillars of Creation.
This isn’t the original picture; they had Hubble go back and take another picture after they upgraded its cameras.

As presented the pillars run vertically, but the “Eagle Nebula” name was given to it based on the appearance of that area seen rotated 90 degrees clockwise. Or, here is a picture of the entire nebula, rotated only about 45 degrees. The dark area in the center is shaped a bit like an eagle, you can see the wings to the left, the body in the center, and the talons to the right…and of course, blown up, it’s “The Pillars of Creation.”

The Eagle Nebula

The Pillars of Creation picture is actually in false color, with green used to show hydrogen, etc., the picture of the eagle nebula is more like what it would look to us if we were close enough to it for it to be bright enough for us to see color.

But here’s what the Pillars look like in infrared:

The Pillars of Creation in infrared

Of course the colors here are ALL false; an infrared image in true color would look black.

But notice you can see a lot more stars.

Infrared can cut through dust clouds, including the dust clouds that condense to form stars and planets. So MIRI is expected to help us greatly in our quest to study “solar systems” that are forming Out There. This is all described in this blog post, from which I ripped off these pictures.

Fuck Joe Biden

Biden, you don’t even get ONE scoop of ice cream today.

(Please post this somewhere permanent, as it will continue to be true; the SOB will never deserve a scoop.)

Incidentally, I’m writing this on Friday. This morning I saw a full-sized pickup truck in the oncoming left turn lane with a forest of flags in the bed. Once he turned and drove left-to-right in front of me, I could see two American flags near the cab, and SIX “Let’s Go Brandon” flags near the tailgate. That was unusual; usually there’s a mix of FJB (only not abbreviated) and “Trump Won” and “Trump 2024” flags when someone does this.

I haven’t seen such a display in a few weeks, by the way. Even the guy at the office complex where I work with the FJB flag on his pickup seems to have removed it (or doesn’t work there any more–trucks all look alike to me from the back, and all crossovers look like cockroaches).

T3 Heat Engines

In the early 1800s, steam engines were the cutting edge tech. We didn’t talk of them changing the world, because before that time, really the world didn’t change much over a person’s lifetime. People in the late 1700s pretty much lived as they had hundreds of years earlier. In fact, living conditions in Europe at the time (for everyone except the nobility and a very small wealthy merchant class) were described as “Third World Europe.” Except that unlike the third world today, we had no concept of sanitation, vaccination (real vaccination, not this current crap), the germ theory of disease, etc., so we had high infant mortality rates and all the rest of the stuff that today’s Third World is getting away from.

The steam engine, and the prosperity it would bring to Europe, would ultimately change that, and usher in an era where we are actually used to seeing rapid technological change generating wealth that even the not-so-rich and not-so-connected could accumulate.

If you recall my first Thermo post, I talked about turning work (energy doing something macroscopic like moving objects around) into heat, and how heat and work were both forms of energy.

A steam engine is one of a large class of devices called heat engines, that turn heat back into work.

A common misconception is that James Watt “invented” the steam engine. No, he didn’t. Actually the first known thing that was something sort of like a steam engine was put together by Hero of Alexandria (10-70 CE), and it’s either called Hero’s Engine or the Aeolipile (from Greek αιολουπυλη). It looks something like this:

The Aeolipile

A cauldron of boiling water is kept under pressure, steam can only get out by going into an object free to move around a pivot (like a bird on a spit over a fire). The steam can only escape by going through the bent arms; it generates a thrust that causes the doohickey to spin.

So Hero was actually able to get heat to do work–some fifteen or so centuries before we had our scientific concept of “work.”

The next step was to actually put something like this to work. It took a while. In 1698 Thomas Savery invented a pump for water that worked by steam power. Steam was allowed to cool and condense , which created a near vacuum which could be used to suck water upwards against gravity. Then more steam could be used to push that water.

So the first commercial application for steam power was to pump water.

Small copies of this device were reasonably efficient, larger ones were not. And lift height was severely limited (since it was a vacuum pump). And the power wasn’t continuous.

In 1712 Thomas Newcomen came up with a steam engine that could deliver continuous power and it used a cylinder, but was still very inefficient because parts of the engine itself (not just the steam) ended up being heated and cooled, heated and cooled, over and over again…which took time. These things could pump water out of mines…slowly. Still, it was better than paying some grunt to do it.

What Watt did was vastly improve the Newcomen engine. And now it could be used not just to pump water, but to pull trains, and power steamships, and even (very primitive) automobiles. And also to power factory equipment, which up until then had been almost entirely reliant on water power or (worse) animal power.

A good steam engine could supply LOADS of power.

And of course this was something scientists investigated. And what they learned could be used to make steam engines even more efficient, delivering more work for the same amount of fuel, which could be either wood, or coal that was pulled out of some of the mines the steam engine had been invented to pump water out of.

One “model” of an engine that could turn heat into work was the Carnot Engine, basically an idealized model, a thought experiment.

What’s needed is a piston with gas in it, a huge mass at high temperature (called the hot reservoir) that we can attach to the piston, and another huge mass at cold temperature (the cold reservoir) which we can attach to the piston as well. It runs through four phases, then from the fourth phase, it returns to the first phase.

Phase one starts with the piston pushed in all the way. There’s a tiny space inside filled with hot gas, under pressure. The gas is at exactly the same temperature as the hot reservoir.

Now you could let the gas under pressure expand, and push on the piston and use that to do work. But as the gas expands, it will lose pressure and the temperature will drop. Instead, what we want to do is let the gas absorb heat from the hot reservoir, so that it stays at the same temperature as it expands. Ideally the temperature is exactly the same but in practical terms this is unachievable (unless you are willing to take literally forever for it to happen).

Phase 2 is to allow the gas to continue to expand and push the piston, but now you let the gas cool off…until it reaches the temperature of the cold reservoir.

Phase 3 is to compress the gas, and keep it at the same temperature as the cold reservoir. Compressing the gas would normally raise its pressure and temperature, but we let the increased heat bleed into the cold reservoir. Do this infinitely slowly, and the gas in the cylinder stays at the cold reservoir temperature.

Phase 4, finally, is to continue compressing the gas, but let it heat up…all the way up to the temperature of the hot reservoir. We’re now back to having compressed gas at the temperature of the hot reservoir.

So what has happened here? We’ve extracted a net amount of work from the system…more came out letting the gas expand and cool than we had to put into it recompressing the gas. Also, some heat energy has been taken from the hot reservoir and put into the cold reservoir.

In reality, this would result in the hot reservoir cooling off just a tiny bit, and the cool reservoir heating up just a tiny bit, but this ideal model assumes these reservoirs are of infinite size.

So what’s going on here? Heat has moved, and some (notice: some, not all) of that heat got turned into work. The rest simply moved from hot to cold and did no work for us at all. And since heat moves from hot to cold naturally, not the other way, that heat energy we didn’t use is gone for good.

As it turns out this “Carnot Cycle” is the most efficient possible way, even in principle, to turn the heat differential between a hot and cold body into work. And it gets more efficient the greater the difference between the two. (And this is true even for engines that are steam turbines with no piston at all, or where the working fluid changes from a gas to a liquid…they can’t beat the Carnot engine.)

The maximum theoretical efficiency is 1-TC/TH. Note that those temperatures need to be measured against absolute zero (so kelvins and Rankines work). You’ll note that if TC and TH are far apart, that fraction gets smaller, and the efficiency climbs, if you can make that fraction 0, your efficiency is 1 (i.e., 100 percent). As a practical matter, though, we don’t have a cold reservoir at 0 K, so we can’t reach 100 percent efficiency even in principle. And whatever this number is…our current power plants don’t even achieve that.

But this is why power plants (coal, nuclear, natural gas, even geothermal) run so hot; it’s to raise the temperature of the working gas as high as possible. And this is why geothermal usually sucks as a power source. You have to drill way, way, way down to get to rocks hot enough to be worth the effort. Of course in some places, like Iceland the hot stuff is closer to the surface. Yellowstone has, if anything, even more potential than Iceland does for geothermal power.

And of course with nuclear and fossil fuels, we control the temperature difference and you can bet we run them as hot as we can.

Since a Carnot engine is as efficient as you can get, a lot of engine design since the mid 1820s has been to try to get as close to a Carnot engine as possible. (That was, for example, the initial idea behind the Diesel engine; eventually Diesel had to start making design compromises.)

In every power plant we build (other than geothermal) the heat reservoir is not only not infinite in size, but it’s actually rather small. It would cool off rapidly as the engine cycles, and the heat is transferred out. To keep it hot, we have to burn fuel. So we’re basically burning fuel to create heat to maintain the temperature of the hot reservoir so we can then turn the heat into work.

With geothermal, the reservoir is huge, perhaps even yuge, but still finite; using geothermal does suck heat energy out of the earth and dump it somewhere colder. It’s just that there’s so much of it we’ll never notice.

A typical coal fired plant uses the work extracted from burning the coal (and keeping the hot reservoir hot) to turn a generator. And the efficiency is roughly 30 percent. 30 percent of the energy in the coal becomes electricity. In fact the engineers and designers are overjoyed when they get that number.

But that does mean the other 70 percent is wasted as waste heat…and it can’t be any other way.

Waste heat is inevitable, and it can’t be recovered. Not without reversing the process. We can push heat energy from the cold to hot reservoir by supplying work. If it’s a Carnot engine, we can run the process in reverse, put the work we got out back in, and move all the heat back where it came from. For any real engine, it will take more work to move less heat than we lost creating the work in the first place. In other words, a Carnot engine is a reversible process. But no real heat engine is reversible this way. But if you try, you will move some heat from cold, back to hot.

This is the idea behind a heat pump.

In reality, there are always losses, and (again) there’s no such thing as a Carnot engine. So if, say, you ran your (real) heat engine and got 100 joules of work out of it, and 200 joules of heat ended up in the cold reservoir, you’d probably need to put 150 joules into it to move those 200 joules back to the hot reservoir. Where would you get the extra 50 joules from? Maybe from another engine, which has its own losses and its own inefficiencies, and even more energy flows from its hot reservoir to its cold reservoir.

In fact, there’s no way to completely reverse heat flow from hot to cold. Any attempt actually moves even more heat from hot to cold in the process. Which might be worth it, if you want to cool the inside of your refrigerator. You suck some heat energy out…at the cost of more heat energy being permanently lost somewhere else.

But on net, heat flows one way, one way only: From hot to cold. Even a theoretically perfectly reversible process like a Carnot engine just holds the total flow to zero. Never negative.

This is what was originally behind the concept of entropy. It denotes that fact that as processes go forward, temperatures even out, they get more and more evened out as time goes on, never the other way around.

(If you think you know of a case, like the inside of your refrigerator, recognize that that’s at the cost of more heat flow in the other direction somewhere else. This is why you can’t cool your house by opening the refrigerator door and leaving it open–it dumps the heat through the coils in back…more heat than it sucks out of the inside. Your air conditioner, on the other hand, does work…by dumping the heat (again, more than it removed from your living space) outside your house and making the outside warmer than it was before.)

Entropy is, conceptually, a measure of how much heat energy is irretrievably lost, and it increases. (It can even be quantified and measured…but that’s WAY beyond the scope of this post.) Entropy never shows a net decrease.

(Entropy is also second only to quantum mechanics as a source of pop philosophizing with a scientific/geeky bent to it. More on this in future posts, because the concept of entropy would eventually be greatly extended beyond mere “waste heat” type considerations.)

So what happens at some distant day when all of the energy in the universe has become waste heat and is irretrievably lost? Well, it’s game over.

Thinking in the long term, the big picture is the entire universe is running down. It will ultimately be one big thing of uniform temperature…and though there will be a lot of heat energy out there, none of it will be usable, not just for industry, but for life itself.

The concept of entropy, and the accompanying realization that the universe as a whole must run down, was the dawn of the science of thermodynamics. The true “dismal science.” Economics is sometimes called the dismal science, but it doesn’t hold a candle to thermodynamics when it comes to “dismal.”

I was writing an email to my mom, who was complaining about radio talk and radio music being too fast. I was saying that the internet had items on a variety of tempos and used

as an example.

After I hit send, I read the comments. Sheepishly.

I had a music history professor who referred (jokingly, of course) to E. Power Biggs as E. Bower [Bauer] Pigs… 🙂 (not sure what Cherry Rhodes and Ladd Thomas think of that 🙂 )…. [ https://music.usc.edu/two-lifetimes-of-music ]

According to the presenter on the video, it appears there’s discoloration of the blood, clotting, and Candida present — in addition to impairment of the immune system (one is assuming that a separate test for T-cell and B-cell levels was performed.) It also appears that the blood in question is from an “UN-vaccinated” person who had intercourse with a “vaccinated” person.
Which then begs a question: when two persons who are BOTH “vaccinated” have intercourse, can it be assumed they are “transferring” elements of the spike protein POISON between each other? What does this do to their blood, immune systems, and so forth — does it accelerate / aggravate the damage from the “vaccine”?
From there: Can it be posited that if a child is conceived from intercourse after one (or both) of the parents is/are “vaccinated”, that the spike protein POISON is transferred to the child at conception?

This is actually part of why I was kicked off Twitter and my account hidden, under the excuse of “QAnon”.

I had pushed some stuff discovered by George Webb – that the alleged Trump “communications from Trump Tower with a Russian bank” were likely CREATED by the people accusing Trump, or somebody working with them – that it was a set-up.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Amen! Orwellian – when speaking TRUTH is a CRIME.

TradeBait2

So, I guess since all deplorables and patriots knew this would be the result in advance of the result being disclosed – that makes us guilty in the Orwellian World

Knowing that to be true there and self evident as a fact of our existence on this planet, what do we expect the result of decades of open borders without retribution will be?

America came into existence through the blood and toil of people who trusted God and believed in liberty and freedom. IMO, that will be the only way it can return to its purpose and promise. We need the Lord’s hedge of protection around us again or we will be destroyed from within. We cannot expect His protection if we do not do as He commands as a people.

is famine or food insecurity looming large in the near future?

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Like the Stalinists of old, “they” are trying to change the system by central control, which WILL cause famine and food insecurity. They are preparing us for it, so that we don’t choose to fight back. They want us to accept death peacefully.

Democrats are communists.

Communists will kill us before they will give up power.

Do the math.

Or they are trying to reset us mentally to the mindset of our grandparents or great grandparents ,who survived the Great Depression ,.
seriously my olds would waste nothing. Every scrap of food was scooped up to become bublensqueak before reluctantly being consigned to the chooks. And any chook who went off the lay because of age literally became an old boiler. Nothing would bring out the inner demon of my grandmother more than the picky kid who rejected food because “I don’t like it”

A study of Amish showed their diet isn’t particularly “ good” – they have full cream milk, eggs etc. no low fat shit for them.
researchers discovered the key was 10,000 steps a day. You walk that much and your metabolism kicks in, you have a higher proportion of muscle / fat – it’s muscle that burns calories,even when resting.

I’m not talking about their diets…that’s their business.

I am talking about their ability, generally, to sustain themselves with out over reliance on technology and Smart stuff…and their strong sense of community and knowing how to help like-minded survivors..know-how…survivalist know-how.

and the “soverign citizen” type of attitude towards Big Govt.

I spent many a night sitting at the table until bedtime. I was NOT eating peas or cooked carrots or the peas/carrots/corn medley and I MEANT IT!! I eventually won that war. Mom couldn’t finish the dishes or do other chores and finally grew tired of the monitoring, pleading, threatening, and bribing drama night after night. Negatory on the brussel sprouts too. They went in the fake plant in the corner and I got busted after they started reeking the atmosphere. 😱 😉 😊

LOL!!! You gotta get ’em to the john – they’re the perfect size to FLUSH!!!

The problem with Brussels sprouts (I hated them as a kid – love them now) is that our parents didn’t know how to serve them to make them tasty.

The Brussels sprouts of my youth were limp, overcooked, tasteless or worse, and mildly stinky. The WORST vegetable of them all. My parents gave up QUICKLY.

Modern Brussels sprouts are oil-cooked, fried or quick-roasted, crisp and firm, peppered, tasty, and often split. They capitalize on the best features of many other vegetables, stolen by the prep.

I can eat a ton of the good ones now. Perfect with MEAT and even BACON, which makes them taste fantastic!!! 😉

bflyjesusgrl 🍊 😎NUCLEAR MAGA😎

You’re right about the taste and no seasoning thing. From frozen bag to overcooked mush in pan w/water on stove to table, HECK NO!!
I actually would probably like them now prepared tastily but the childhood trauma prevents me from going there. I’ll keep busy with the broccoli, FRESH asparagus, cabbage, kale, spinach, chard and other veggies that I grew into liking.😉😁

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yeah, don’t try it yourself at first. I let the PROS tempt me back.

My advice is to go to some places with real chefs, that serve luxury pub food, and pick a great meat item served with the little death cabbages.

These chefs KNOW that many if not most people can’t stand Brussels sprouts, so they pull the ultimate makeup jobs on ’em.

Heck, I’m getting hungry just talking about ’em!

Tip. Cook kale with coconut oil. It makes them easier to scrape into the bin

Ozzytrumpster

Brussel sprouts were my line in the sand. Tried them as an adult and, yep, they still taste foul.
my brother was a bitch. Every meal it was – this was a chicken, this was a baby lamb.

Exactly, my parents were the same, I think it’s because they lived through ww2 and rationing.
It never left them though and I think it must have rubbed of on us kids, waste not want not.

Cuppa Covfefe

Same here, too. My parents survived the depression and WWII in the USA and England, as did my grandparents, and NOTHING went to waste. My father had tools, for instance, that looked like the day they were bought, despite being a generation or two old, and used a lot during that time. My wife’s parents and grands here in Germany, same thing…

“Eat your befores before your afters” was often heard, as was “you’ll not leave this table until you’ve finished your meal” (or veg, or whatever).

It also encouraged planning, thriftiness, circumspection before purchasing, and, at least in my case 🙂 a formidable spare parts bin… which I’ll probably spend the next few years trying to sell on eBay, etc.

[Anyone need a 5¼ floppy drive, with A/B IDE cable? Or an Epson 2100 A3+ printer, complete with roll-cutter, basket, roll photo paper, etc.? And that’s some of the NEWER stuff 😀 ]

Funny thing is, stores are now back to selling unpackaged fruit, veggies, etc. (they haven’t gone to selling hardware that way, drat), and acting as if they’ve invented something new. Hmmm. Tack the word “sustainable” (nachhaltig) onto anything and it becomes a new trend…

Found a good use for old or blank CD’s. Hang them with some garden twine or wire to keep the birds and critters away from garden areas. They blow in the wind and the sun reflects off of them.

We have been attacked by flocks of birds the last few years. For the previous two years it was starlings nesting. This year it’s robins. Big, fat, ornery robins. Had tried fake owls and lately, rubber snakes. The snakes do better than the owls, which they just roost and crap on. 😂 But even the snakes get ignored after awhile if you don’t move them around frequently. Enter CD’s. Problem gone.

I was pretty much raised by my Dad’s mom, my Nanny, I called her. She lived through the Depression. She only attended school through the third grade, and couldn’t drive a car, but she fed three families with vegetables she grew and preserved. I literally never ate a store-bought vegetable at home.

She made “bread pudding” that was just like brownies out of leftover biscuits and/or cornbread. She could make the roughest greens taste like heaven. She used every scrap of fabric in something. My Dad grew up wearing underwear made by her out of feedsack material, which used to be nice cotton.

She saved everything. Plastic bags, rubber bands, string. Nails, nuts, bolts. Tools were lovingly cared for.

I will say I was never forced to eat anything I didn’t like. But her cooking was so good that there wasn’t much to complain about!

I learned at her knee. I’m gonna make it real hard for these fuckers to kill me and mine.

singingsoul1

Your Nanny sounds like my Oma who would save and use everything. She also could do everything. Baked heavanly plum cakes and other simple cakes. She cooked wounderful food grew her own chicken and had a garden. The garden was not very big but she grew a lot in it and preserved. Women from yesterday were very compitend less educated but resourceful and kind.

Aubergine

Yes, they were.

I make a pretty mean plum cake, myself, lol!

singingsoul1

Great 🙂 Yummy

TradeBait2

Love it.

My wife and I are in the process of doing memory books for our families. My paternal grandmother, Mamaw, sounds a lot like your Nanny and singinsoul1’s Oma. She was sharp, earned her teaching certificate back when women did not get to go to higher learning schools much back in 1916. Taught elementary school kids in the old coal mining camp towns. Came from a poor, hard working coal mining family. Knew no other way than to work hard, scrimp, save everything that could be of value, make do. Made their clothes, worked in the veggie garden, canned, etc. Best country cooking you would ever want to eat. Simply made magic.

Add in being an Appalachian poet of note in Who’s Who in American Poetry back in her day. I brought one of her poems to the QTree a couple weeks back, Probably will bring more in the future. When her and Papaw died they only had about $700 in their savings account, no home (rented), never had a vehicle (walked, took a bus or train), etc. They were wealthy beyond imagination in what matters.

Shining lights in most of our families for future generations if we would simply pay attention.

Aubergine

Lovely story, and I’m glad you are doing memory books. That is so important.

I called my great-grandma Mamaw.

Somewhere in all family lines, no matter how far back, somebody knew how to subsist, otherwise their progeny would have died out. I think we are about to learn how to do it again. Then our families can write memory books about us 🙂

Please bring more poetry from your Mamaw.

TradeBait2

Will do. Probably on Sundays. Seems appropriate with Bakocarl’s messages. Mamaw’s wording clearly conveys faith, family, friends and love of nature throughout.

singingsoul1

Sounds like the people arround where I live. Grandparents you describe live in the Hallows of Appalachia. Nothing much has changed for them. They are a close family God fearing happy people. The music that come from the hills stirs the heart. They are also not trusting of strangers but since many have been in military they are open to me. They seldom accept help. When there was a flood I brought church supplies to them they took it but rejected it from another woman who brought items to them. They are self reliant. They have reasons to be not trusting outsiders have exploited them in Steel mills and coal mines. They are hardworking good people.

singingsoul1

I had to work on that not to become to upset when my kids did not wanted to eat. They did using same method I was taught. No struggle just get to eat next day what you did not eat the day before. When people are hungry they eat.
Still today when I make a comment when ives me a list what his wife is not eating when they visit I said one time ” the reason is she never was hungry.” He gets upset with me when I say it. Going out with my kids spouses is a nightmare. Seeing them pick over food one does not eat this the other that and leave half the food on the plate.
If I get to much food I set it asside ask for a box and take it home. We do not through food out and I use everything.

Such a simple, truthful concept. I am clueless why the average American does not understand it and resist yet. I don’t know what else to do that has not already been done.

Aubergine

They will understand when they are hungry. Then we will see some shit we would rather not have to see. But it will be interesting.

Americans have become unaccustomed to struggle.

Cuppa Covfefe

My Jewish cello professor and her sister escaped death by the Nazis in WWII via the Dutch Underground. They wrote out their music exercises on blotter paper, by memory, and practiced silently to keep in shape. Fortunately they were able to escape Germany and end up in the USA.

She said to me one time, “the problem with your generation is, you haven’t suffered enough”… then explained some of the hardships they endured. I was floored, and humbled, and, yes, corrected.

That was almost 50 years ago. I shudder to think what the two or three generations after mine must (not) think…

When I was a wee bairn, I used to follow my Dad around like a lost puppy, sometimes getting in his way, but he was always patient, kiend, and loving with me. And almost every time I went exploring the garage, I’d find something new (to me) or unusual, and ask him what it was or was for. One time there was something made out of steel, painted green, that looked like a rounded foot on a frame like an upside-down leg. I asked what it was, and he replied that it was a last, which one used to make shoes.

He could make his own shoes!

Coming from Appalachia, he could make (and fix) pretty much anything and everything, and not waste a tool, or time, or money. And he could grow things, be it animals or plants. We used to have one of those over-the-toilet cabinet things on spring-loaded poles, and there would always be some plant(s) wound around the poles with SaranWrap or a baggie filled with (a little) peat moss, soil, rooting compound in the middle, where he was grafting, making a root from a cutting, etc. He could probably have made a brick take root… I was always surprised and fascinated with what he (and my Mom) knew and could do. Educated in the University of Life and Hard Knocks, so to speak… and despite all of that, we never wanted for anything, and appreciated what we had, which was infinitely more valuable that what passes for life these days…..

I think maybe in these times GOD is nudging us back in that direction; to be a little (OK, a LOT) more self-sufficient, humble, THANKFUL, and observant of the provenance that GOD has showered upon us.

The Greens completely misinterpret “subdue the earth” as destroying the earth (and its contents, as it were). The point of the passage is shepherding, husbanding, managing, and preserving, something of which the Greens, et. al. have no clue. But we seem to have gotten so far from our roots, from the land, that we have no (or little) connection anymore.

Grating the Greenhearted and her ilk continuously yammer about “the Earth” and everything, yet they wouldn’t know what to do with a 20×50 plot of land, some fertilizer, some seeds, some water, a rake, a shovel (trowel some call it), and a lot of elbow grease. Indeed they wouldn’t know what to do with a Farmers’ Almanac or a Western Garden Handbook if it fell on them…

Talk about “gotta get back to the garden”… Joni was talking about the wrong garden…..

cthulhu

There is also a Southern Garden Handbook which is almost identical to the Western….with the major change being how they do climate.

The Southern one uses USDA cold maps, then developed their own “hot maps”, and they’ll rate plants as being cold zone X-Y and hot zone A-B.

The Western has microclimates.

I used to work in the building that the Lane Brothers built (Lane Publishing) in Menlo Park. STUNNING grounds doesn’t even come close. It was a great campus, but, sad to say, it’s been sold; not sure if they tore everything down or not…

I was one of the few permanent employees at ADIA, the temp agency (internal IT ops mangler) and we shared some of the building. I suspect they were on their way downhill even then, as we were just renting (smart move on their part).

My parents got each new edition as it came out; I have a few of them, including one of the last that was published. Also some of their design books, which give great information, and a taste of the 60s, 70s, and “Western Life”… ahhh, those were the days…..

cthulhu

I know the gardens well. They used to have annual “open houses” (with about 10% of the actual buildings open).

I guess the last edition of the book was the Ninth, in 2012….but you never throw the old ones away.

Aubergine

Oh, yeah. Gotta get back to the garden is right!

I am getting ready to teach a beginning gardening class next week. I hope my students are ready for my “folk gardening” approach. Our forebears didn’t have the internet, artificial fertilizers, expensive equipment, or any of the gadgets and gewgaws people want today. I garden mostly with a few hand tools and found items like buckets for containers. I want to teach people NOT to spend a fortune to get a whole bunch of food. Wish me luck!

cthulhu

(1) Good luck!

(2) Rubbermaid tubs can survive a LOT of abuse. They can be used to raise fish, or you can drill holes in the bottom for plant containers.

(3) I have found that a good place to start was an understanding of dirt. We currently have adobe clay which we’ve supplemented with some river sand and lots of compost over the years.

Aubergine

Thanks!

I do have some Rubbermaid tub planters!

I have spent over a decade on the soil I’m on. I use nothing that will damage an earthworm, that’s my rule. I dug up one today that was so big it startled me! About ten inches long. Way down, I have had two-footers.

Good compost is garden gold.

Fire and Ice Launch Audio in a New Window

BY ROBERT FROST
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Hello Smiley,
Good to see you.
A kind and respectful FYI on the down low.
7 years ago, during Trump’s first campaign, I was an admin for ReTrumplicans, about 50K members and extremely active. We were dealing with all the Macedonians, etc., posting crazy crap on our page.
I noticed Natural News was one of the worst and got curious.
Did a major deep dive and tracked them back to a source in Thailand. Almost 100% of their content is crap. I had such a bad experience with this particular site, I was able to ban them from our page….. and I only did that with a few.
Be very careful of anything from Natural News. Please.

smiley2

ok well if you could also provide some links to support your opinion, that would be helpful

I like that site and I will continue to post articles from it if I think they are valid.

Some of the info there can be a bit hyped sometimes in which case I won’t post it for fear of getting replies like yours….and screams of “disinformation”.

Your bad experience was from 7 years ago.

I don’t necessarily doubt what yr saying but the site may have improved since then ?

i don’t know…7 years ago, I did not even know about the site.

Much of what he says is substantiated by other sources.

he is not a “disinformation purveyor”…but he does get carried away, at times.

I really don’t appreciate the suggestion that I am putting “disinformation” in the comments section here…unless you can show me exactly what I posted that is “crap” and/or “disinformation”.

This article gives a bit more information on the two phony DHS agents.
Seems their downfall was brought about by an almost accidental set of circumstances.

mollypitcher5

There’s something so off about this. The article characterizes it as a bizarre charade but at some point the secret service and other govt employees surely at least looked for their credentials.
Have the govt agencies become so cloaked in separate authority powers that each doesn’t bother checking thoroughly even though they clearly bragged about powers that should have raised eyebrows long before this happened?

This quote immediately made me think of Pelosi’s new Capitol Police Force. It’s becoming believable, even to supposedly seasoned secret service agents ,that there can be clandestine rogue operatives snooping into an entire building of citizens ?

The quote FTA ~ Not only could they not resist boasting of their bogus Homeland Security connections, they also bragged that they were deputized “special police” with the Washington DC government and involved in undercover gang investigations, as well as the January 6th probe.

mollypitcher5

It’s got an Awan Brothers smell around it.

pgroup2

Speaking of Capitol Police, a short bio on Dingy Harry [wiki?] that I read described him getting a job there as his introduction to DC. As political patronage. IOW, qualifications to be a police officer were not needed.

Ashley Babbitt can certainly vouch for the accuracy of that statement. Oh wait, …

PRAYING ON THE ARMOR OF GOD

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.

Ok, Abbott bombed on the Charter busses. Maybe he used that as a distraction from the RED MEAT? In a Trumpian move, he has slowed down transportation on 3 major bridges where Mexico trucks goods into Texas to a craaaaawwwl. He added extra inspection conditions to incoming trucks which now takes 45min/truck. Laredo is the HUGEST import route into the country. Bensman said on Warroom that a drone followed the waiting trucks for over 10 miles. 🤸‍♀️ US companies and Mexico are losing mega $$$ and are pizzled. Look for even more food and goods shortages. Abbott started this last week and expects to continue this coming week. THIS should get attention quick. 👀

This is EXCELLENT sleight of hand. The Bidenese commies prepared for Washington busing, and now they DIE AT THE BORDER, where they can do nothing.

FUCK JOE BIDEN.

GA/FL

A double whammy! Abbott hits both Biden and Mexico – trying to stop the illegal invasion and the bad policies.

Stash of assault rifles, body armor, passports with multiple visas, and sham uniforms found in penthouse of ‘fake’ Homeland agents – including one with ‘links to Pakistani intelligence’ – who ‘infiltrated Biden, Kamala and Jill’s Secret Service details’

  • A motion for detention shows two men impersonating federal agents, Haider Sher-Ali, 35, and Arian Taherzadeh, 40, had a slew of damning evidence in their apartments
  • This included images showing several different passports and IDs as well as firearms
  • ‘They are not law enforcement agents, and they are not involved in sanctioned covert activities,’ the motion for detention filed Friday claims. ‘Neither Defendant is even employed by the United States government’
  • ‘But their impersonation scheme was sufficiently realistic to convince other government employees, including law enforcement agents, of their false identities,’ the memorandum added. 
  • At least two Secret Service agents assigned to Biden and Harris’ protective detail were caught up in the scheme by two men posing as DHS agents
  • One agent receiving free rent, sources say, was regularly stationed at VP Kamala Harris’ residence at One Observatory Circle at the Naval Observatory
  • Another who was often seen partying with the two men is on the presidential protective detail
  • At least four Secret Service agents have been placed on administrative leave   
  • Taherzadeh and Ali were arrested Wednesday for impersonating federal agents with the Department of Homeland Security, their apartment were raided by the FBI, NCIS and USPIS
  • The duo claimed to be involved in an investigation into the Jan. 6 Capitol attack

Las Vegas anyone. Something similar timed with the J6 Kangaroo hearings.
Trying to gift the SS guy with a rifle could have been setting him up to be the patsy.

NOTHING would surprise me at this point.

Partying with the guy is perfect for setting up MK sessions.

Don Bongino said something about them gifting an apartment to an agent. He thinks it was likely bugged so they could get more intel. This appears to be something akin to the Arwan Brothers.

Oh, man – THAT is how you get a guy to help pull an assassination.

A postman got assaulted and the postal people thought the two might have witnessed it, the postal investigators must not have been happy with them and got on to the FBI.

Judge: New York City Illegally Canceled Trump Contract (thegatewaypundit.com)

A state Supreme Court judge ruled Friday that the city did not have the right to cancel Trump’s contract to run the Ferry Point Golf Course. Mayor Bill de Blasio had nixed the deal after the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot, arguing that Trump would not be able to attract golf tournaments.
In her decision and order filed on Friday, Justice Debra James said there was nothing in the contract that required a tournament — only that the city would share in any proceeds. That means either Trump gets to continue to run the course, or the city needs to pay him to leave. Trump’s son Eric said they’ll stay.
