8 Day FAST – lessons, experience

It is over. I made a gourmet stew that waited in the crock pot for my wife to get home from her vacation at an unknown afternoon-evening time. It was excellent. Turns out I really like food. 😉

It was not easy. I do not recommend what I did, known as an extended water-only fast. Most of the important results can be had with more convenient, accessible options that I outline below and in the video to the right.

I know of no other person who has deliberately denied themselves food beyond one day. It is, however, a healing […]

clearing the air

For the last few days, the wildfire smoke around here has been rated “UNHEALTHY”. I use the site AirNow to verify. Click the link to see any city. The Montana Department of Environmental Quality and relatives offer this advice: People with heart or lung disease, older adults, children and teens – take any of these steps to reduce your exposure: Avoid strenuous outdoor activities. Keep outdoor activities short. Consider moving physical activities indoors or rescheduling them.

Everyone else – take any of these steps to reduce your exposure: Choose less strenuous activities (like walking instead of running) so […]

flesh and bone VS titanium

In my last post here I discussed my aversion to turning a surgeon loose on my knees and how my use of naturally-produced dietary supplements had put my “need” for knee replacement off over a dozen years past the AMA wizard’s prediction.

Recent events both reinforce and refute my stance.

One of the guys about my age at our recent family reunion had both knees replaced with titanium contraptions and “loves them”… “No pain”… He plays LOTS of golf… “Gets around great”…

Three of us older gents teamed up to remove from the shipping box and assemble a new […]

Do-It-Yourself knee replacement

In the latter part of 2005 I tore the meniscus in a severely abused knee. The surgeon who went in trimming away the pieces causing the main disabling pain assured me my meniscus was so thin I would be back within a year for the full artificial knee replacement.

At that time I had heard of people who had wonderful results from that process as well as about an equal number who were crippled by it. Fifty-fifty was not inspirational to me. I still had my natural mobility though it was a bit too tender for extended use.

Alert The “Vaccine” Is a Bioweapon – 5 Doctors Testify

Mainstream media, mainstream medical, big pharma, all government … let’s just call them “the usual suspects” do not want you to watch this video.

It is crucial to your health and those around you that you do indeed watch it. I absolutely guarantee it will be worth it.

I have another related one I will share at Bitterroot Bugle, but not now. I do not want to distract from this one in any way. I’ll put it up tomorrow. Watch this one first and foremost. The other one is short and related.

Below I share the entire article […]

bargain basement boot rack

We have muck boots for ourselves, family, friends and guests – anyone who happens by to work or play in our chicken yard, creek, snow or mud. Mostly the collection has been standing in the alley between our house and garage.

One such friend recently discovered a mouse nest in one of the boots we were loaning out. Turns out more than one boot was thusly violated. Fortunately this particular guest is an earthy guy who was not put off by this violation, but the ICK-factor was something we could not tolerate.

My wife sent me links to […]

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 […]
