change every clock in your house as a reminder idiots are in charge

You would have expected us to be smarter than that, or have our politicians under better control by now.

Nope.

A Tulsa publisher looks at it:

‘Spring forward’ has lots of haters, so why has daylight saving time been so hard to change?

Bitterroot Bugle looks at it: My post three years ago.

daylight savings

Sure is a shame about the hour I am losing this weekend.

It was the one I intended to spend worshiping our government.

While there is even a .gov website describing circadian rhythms, other than the governments of Arizona and Hawaii, […]

welding lighting

I graduated from heavy-metal farmer-grade stick welding to light metal shielded wire feed welding with mixed success.

I recently figured out the pattern.

When the sun through my shop windows was lighting the work, I could see the two metal pieces through my dark helmet screen. When I could see what I was doing my welds were fine.

As soon as that light came on, I ordered some modern LED task lighting. Looking for a way to put it in the right position led me to a tripod I bought three years ago without any purpose […]

Darby Blizzard of ’21

Epic snowfall for the Darby area with 15 inches on Sunday followed by 6 inches on Monday. A bit much for the equipment we have here to deal with normal snowfalls.

In the video at the bottom I show how to read the weather satellite clips and what they tell us.

over stove rack

One attribute of mine appreciated greatly by my spousal unit she nicknamed “The Shelf Meister”. I never build any two alike. Everything is a prototype, custom for the situation, location and application.

It is a constant game for me to move things off the flat working surfaces and her to bring more gadgets and gizmos out that then occupy the space thus cleared. Rinse. Repeat.

My newest creation is from flat-bar steel and rods cut and heat-bent. The copper paint amuses me and fits the decor. I get a kick out of people puzzling over why magnets stick […]

COVID-19 … best defense available

As society world-wide toys with making this mandatory, we really ought to know it better than we do.

If you watch only one of my published videos or read only one of my published essays, this set should be IT.

A group of physicians currently numbering over 1,000 strong are raising serious concerns that deserve to be widely heard. America’s Frontline Doctors website is www.Americas Front Line Doctors.com There they have three primary pages Vaccine Information Learn about the controversies, medical myths, and risk factors surrounding the COVID-19 experimental vaccines. Vaccine Bill of Rights A MEMORIALIZING RESOLUTION for […]

eagle identification wild goose chase

The chickens squawked urgently – a loud and clear threat alarm.

I dashed to the window.

Holey smokes! Looked like an eagle standing in their yard.

I scrambled into the chicken yard to watch him fly away. (Him, her, I have no idea. I’ll just use the generic male terminology for simplicity’s sake.)

Yep, BIG … REALLY BIG. Blue flashes on both shoulders and a patch on the tail.

He landed in a tree 100 meters away. I took several photos with my Canon camera zoomed in quite a bit. I figured one or more of them would […]

amateur radio Winter Field Day

This will be the first time I have participated in the annual Winter Field Day. I suppose it sounded difficult.

It is incredibly easy for any amateur radio operator anywhere to participate at some level. Sure you can pitch a tent in the snow on some mountain-top for the weekend, but you can also sign up and run right out of your normal radio shack – or anywhere in between. All operators are welcome to join in at whatever level suits their situation and inclination.

This year the Bitterroot Emergency Amateur Radio Services group, now officially the […]

We are at war; you are living in a war zone

This is what 4th-Generation-War looks like. It is mainly comprised of psychological operations to manipulate the masses. Skirmishes here and there will not be widely reported. Eventually they spread and the imitation of normal life breaks down completely.

I explain the big picture on down to the local and personal impact in this video. I have touched on much of it in my web-posts. Rummage around BitterrootBugle.com, Idaholiberty.com, TedDunlap.net, TheFixer.biz to see my essays and links to supporting evidence from around the world.

sight-in Round-TUIT

Coulda-shoulda- dunnit sooner, but nevermind all that, I got my new Sightmark scope sighted in … and had fun in the process.

The Wraith is an electronic scope that has now impressed me A LOT. It is my first non-mechanical scope, but not my most expensive. Yet it was considered a breakthrough at the February 2020 SHOT SHOW in that you could use it both day and night AND it was very reasonably priced at $400 on the street.

For this particular rifle, thousand-yard shots are not on the agenda, nor even half that. A couple hundred is […]

Dr. Carrie Madej + several other doctors with news you need to know

Here is the big picture about COVID and vaccines, but it gets down to the nano-and cellular picture that we all should understand at least somewhat. Doctor Carrie Madej is more than expert on it, she is absolutely superb at explaining it to people who are not trained doctors, virologist and biological scientists.

Here is a link to the video at Brighteon.com. You can (and should) share this via e-mail or other electronic methods. Below that is the same video so you can watch right here. https://www.brighteon.com/371e2513-1ca4-4322-a104-c7cba1f51756

operating on Farmer Time

Today is the biannual celebration of control our overlords wield over details of our lives. They remind us twice a year that even little things are within their power.

For absolutely NO GOOD REASON, they send us scurrying around our houses, shops and vehicles resetting every clock and timer therein. It is just a little jab, not like they are starving or poisoning us … with that poke anyway.

I am approaching the mark where half of my life will have been spent self-employed. When you do not report for work at a time fixed by others, the […]

Autumn on our homestead

With four days of rain predicted and reasonable certainty that both the summer and the Indian Summer are history, I saw this morning as my last chance to seed the areas my construction projects this year laid bare.

I have been trying to buy or borrow a real harrow to work the seeds under cover, but nothing worked out. So I made my own along the lines of cheap, scrappy farm yard stuff. Old boards. Fence scrap. Screws. Chain. Ingenuity. It worked just fine.

It has been almost a decade since I sold off my 20-year business, The […]
