I consider trial by jury as the only anchor yet imagined by man by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution.
-Thomas Jefferson, 1789

The Health Ranger yanks me off the Coronovirus fence

I have refused to get sucked in to either side of the virus reality debate. Partisans for both sides have long, well-established, thoroughly-warranted reputations for exaggerating, understating and flat-out lying more often than truthing.

My guarantee has been that the second- and third-order effects will be dramatic and life-changing for all of us. That is still true, but having read the article and watched two ten-minute videos from Mike Adams has convinced me the very real effects of COVID will itself kill, sicken and weaken huge swaths of the world population.

I highly recommend you review his […]

non-handshake greetings

My wife sent me a video link on fist-bumping as a major improvement in social hygiene. You can see in the clip to the right that handshaking is a significant disease spreading vector.

I confess to having hand-shaking deeply embedded into my cultural norms. My circle of acquaintances are probably similarly programmed. I’m not sure this can work.

Of course the lamestream media onslaught of virus fear-mongering should make this an opportune moment in our history for a cultural shift in greeting and deal-making rituals. I suppose that is assuming we don’t want to regularly challenge our […]

lubricating sensitive joints

My ultimate test is what works for me. Without prior experience I rely on recommendations, reviews and research. In the case of my dietary supplements I experiment, personally perceive results, then stick with what works on my body.

I continually question my selection, wondering if each one of them continue to be best for me, most economical, necessary or warranted. The products in the marketplace are constantly changing as is my body and use thereof. Through a number of additions, deletions and brand changes, I am somewhat confident in my choices.

Fourteen years ago the surgeon who cleaned […]

coronavirus advice

Straight out of the box, The Woodpile Report hits a homerun out of the state. This is excellent advice for the possibility of the threatened pandemic. Throughout his post he touches on the latest rage in mass fear mongering several times. Each one is worth a good look.

It really does not make a lot of difference whether the flu is as awful as some reports have it or that reports are overblown as others claim. The second and third order effects will be a big deal.

We are already into quarantines exceeding half-a-billion people, states, countries, ports… global […]

You want the brain tumor to just go away?

The dreaded, crushing words, “Inoperable brain tumor” are in modern medicine a death sentence. However, people who step outside the AMA box have had startling “good luck”. Before I would let them have their way with radiation treatments that sometimes work when they don’t kill the patient, I would be researching alternatives.

My first step is always to use an Internet search engine whose results are not rigged. Unlike the 800-pound-gorilla of websearch and information technology, DuckDuckGo does not censor, slant results, or add every search you make to a dossier with your name on it. So go to […]

connected with the cosmos

I have published several articles regarding the function of the hair growing out of our heads (search BitterrootBugle.com for “hair”). There is more to it than most understand. History is replete with examples of warriors losing powers when shorn, or retaining inexplicable senses with their long hair.

We long-hairs cannot quantify differences nor can short-hairs know what they are missing. A few days ago one of those unaccountable things happened to me.

I felt an urgent need to take both dogs for an off-leash walk up the road; something I NEVER DO. I tried to rationalize the urge […]

shell people

A granddaughter moved in with us after failing to thrive in The Big City. We were close to her Mom’s last hope. It was going well, we thought, but were recently smacked upside the head that our great little community and wonderful resources were not enough.

We involved adults were of the same mind, landing like a ton of bricks on this ungrateful truant. The girl’s world was shrinking and tightening incrementally as previous sanctions failed to deliver desired results. In retrospect: If what you are doing is not working, “do more of it” is not really the greatest […]

heal thyself

I have been pushing the old body pretty hard in anticipation of this day. While I know it officially begins with the Winter Solstice on Friday, December 21, 2018, my activities shift to winter mode when the ground becomes frozen and unworkable. Today, November 30th is that day.

While Intellicast.com and the National Weather Service are often incorrect, I’m not betting against this particular prognostication. It feels about right to me. Game over for new construction, yard improvements and anything that involves moving dirt. Temperatures consistently below freezing also make outdoor work a lot less fun and inspire […]

ALERT: It is worse than hot out there

Many of us have noticed that the sun seems intense this summer. A friend who works outdoors says he actually feels the sun abnormally burning, boring-into his skin.

Another friend called yesterday reporting that their sophisticated photographic hobby drone refused to fly. It reported that:

the electromagnetic field was too intense for the drone’s controls to operate.

That took him to the Internet for investigation. Which, in turn, set him contacting friends to warn them about this intensity spike in solar energy reaching us.

The Environmental Protection Agency publishes maps quantifying the intensity of sun rays striking our Earth.

gadget love making us crazy

This one from Zerohedge is very good. Anyone paying attention can validate the points. This article goes into the details, but the meta-data, the big picture is obvious to any observer who has kept their distance from the swamp.

How many signs do we need that some time spent in nature, thoughtful periods and interactions with fundamental, cave-man tools is important to a balanced person?

sugar stupid

We like sweet. Nature did this so we would be attracted to fruit and berries. They are good for us. Where we get into trouble are with modern refining of natural sugars and commonplace availability of fruits rather than seasonal, intermittent access. Since we abandoned our hunter-gatherer existence in exchange for our grocery store cornucopia we either learn about healthy nutrition or suffer negative consequences.

I am comfortable with natural sugars like real maple syrup and evaporated cane juice, but I also have developed a mental dis-attraction to sugary foods. Easy-sneezy with that awful chemically-refined sugar beet junk […]

Intermittent Fasting, a review

I began intermittent fasting January 2017 eating modest-sized regular late-morning breakfasts and evening dinners with no food intake between. It was very successful in the obvious weight loss that inspired my adoption of the regimen.

I wrote about it here: fasting – by Ted Dunlap, on May 31st, 2017 losing it – by Ted Dunlap, on February 11th, 2017

I think I also enjoy the more subtle changes in mind and body that others have written about. It may well have me feeling stronger, happier, more optimistic and at peace. Those are hard to quantify or pin on any […]
