  1. See if you can get a rebate from your utility company. Our heat pump system allowed a $750 rebate check. It arrived today. Love our system. So quiet and efficient. It will also heat the place down to 30 F ambient temperature very efficiently. That's easier than trying to get a draft from the woodburner chimney. 😉
  2. Trail Cams missing. Our local farm store had a bare shelf in Sporting Goods where Trail Cams used to reside.
  3. I was reading about the breakdown of some of the latest stimulus package. A total of $3 BILLION dollars was allocated to marketing the jab. I was shocked beyond belief. As a marketing major, I find that this has gone way beyond medicine and science. I see the ads all the time as I walk past mom's sitting room during the ads on tv.
  4. When I left the farm store last week, there was a table with hundreds of hand sanitizers sitting on it. The sign said "FREE". I didn't take any, and they can't seem to get rid of them these days. I try to be careful around others, and am uncomfortable after leaving a place, I use my sanitizer in the car. This virus sure changed my shopping habits. I have more money in our savings account to buy what the old homestead needs. Too bad the lumber prices are through the roof.
  5. This is where I have to disagree. It 'IS' my body and my choice on an experimental drug that's not approved by the FDA. Abortion, on the other hand, always kills a person, on purpose.
  6. The VA keeps calling me when I have an appointment and pressuring me to get a covid shot while I'm at the clinic. Finally, after a soft badgering yesterday, I told the lady that my records should show that I am part of the Control Group and not the Test Group. Silence. Then she went on with her script and said that they're close to having the vaccines receiving a final approval. I told her that when the animal testing phase is completed, I'd like to read the report and then make an intelligent decision on the injection. Silence for a bit of time. Then, She said, 'would you like for me to take you off the Covid reminder calling list?" I said YES, PLEASE.

    Carrots

    I have done wet sand in 5-gal buckets for storing carrots but have never tried bags in the refrig. Thanks for the idea.
  8. How many true cases of Covid 19 are there? (June 4, 2021, Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom) The CDC seems to be changing its definition of a “case. ”For over a year, they’ve counted all PCR positive tests, even those that it took up to 45 cycles to find a speck of virus. But now that the CDC is investigating breakthrough Covid-19 cases after vaccination, they only want specimens where the virus was found after 28 or fewer cycles. Apparently, these are the only tests they see as positive. Scientists have been cautioning against high cycle thresholds for a year. So how many true cases have there actually been?This is something that we will discover in years to come.“COVID-19 Breakthrough Case Investigations and Reporting,”CDC, Last reviewed May 14, 2021, https://bit.ly/2RLn2Ql“Predicting Infectious SARS-CoV-2 from Diagnostic Samples,”Jared Bullard, MD, et al, Clinical Infectious Disease, May 22, 2020: https://bit.ly/2R43DcU
  9. I have most of the attachments to the Kitchen-Ade and really enjoy them during harvest season. I've not tried the peeler/spiralizer attachment. When DH gets too snoopy in the kitchen, I just hand him the peeler and the bag of potatoes. An add-on grain grinder 25 years ago was awesome. Don't remember where DH found it but I still use it every week. The pasta maker, not so much. Dar gave me one of hers and I use it for homemade pastas, but pasta is still pretty cheap in the stores.
  10. You might want to consider another career before you kill yourself. The sad part is that they will always find others to replace you. Your life is worth more than what they are giving you credit for. Step back and analyze your life. What is the worst that can happen if you change directions in life and save your health? Once gone, you can never get your health back. No job is worth your health.
  11. Too little, too late but at least it's now a law on the books. "The Senate approves Rand Paul's (R-KY) amendment to a bill that bans all gain of function research in China from receiving US funding by unanimous voice vote." (Forbes Breaking News)
  12. Dehydrating 10 lbs of shredded potatoes for this next winter. The gifted bag was at the end of the shelf life, so SIL helped me peel. DH shredded them and I blanched them for 5 minutes. Then DH laid them out onto the trays to dry. He'd never done anything like this before.
  13. BIRMINGHAM, Alabama, May 21, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — A group of parents, along with America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS) and written by Thomas Renz, Esq., filed a motion in federal court seeking a temporary restraining order “to prevent the expansion of the FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for COVID-19 vaccines to include children under the age of 16,” according a statement released earlier today. The motion was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama and is directed against Secretary Xavier Becerra and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). It consists of numerous plaintiffs representing various interests and backgrounds, including “physicians and the parents of minor children who are alarmed about offering children experimental products that have not undergone long term animal or safety studies.” “We’ve never seen this level of side effects for any vaccine without the FDA taking action,” stated Dr. Angelina Farella, AFLDS Pediatric Medical Director. “The Rotavirus vaccine was pulled for 15 cases of non-lethal side effects and the Swine Flu vaccine was pulled for 25 deaths. But now, by the CDC’s own data, we are seeing a 12,000 percent increase in deaths with these vaccines and they’re still talking about giving this to our kids.” The lawsuit also challenges the legality of "emergency use authorization" since that law states that children must be at risk, which the CDC says children are statistically at ZERO percent mortality rate by COVID-19. The "emergency use authorization" also states that it can only go into effect if there are no other viable treatments for the virus. Hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, Zinc, and Budesonide have all been proven as effective treatments by multiple doctors. This lawsuit throws the kitchen sink at the unethical collusion and marketing campaign of this deadly vaccine through Big Media, Big Tech, Big Pharma, and Big Gov, all to financially benefit globalist billionaires. https://renz-law.com/
  14. I tried the magnet test on my husband's arm. He had the Moderna. He couldn't remember which arm received the shot. Yeah, right. I decided to try to find out which arm it was. The magnet stuck to the upper right arm, at the area where he received the shot. He had the funnest look on his face. I didn't say anything about the shot, or 'I told you so'.
  15. Yesterday, it was $2.61 at the local Cenex station that isn't manned.
  16. We have an annual 'steam and gas show' in a neighboring town. It draws 10,000's of fans. It's the largest in the Midwest. Everything imaginable is running there. The Amish have many of the items on display. I bet you might find one near you and make some offers.
  17. Good article, thanks!! My DH grew up on a mink ranch. They raised 100,000's of mink every year. His father was the breeder and researcher for the owner. Leukemia caused a huge loss in the industry each year. They developed a vaccine for mink and it eliminated the disease in this animal which closely resembles humans in many ways. They submitted the findings and the whole subject was buried and never resurrected. That was over 50 years ago. DH used to also work in the automotive industry. A friend of his developed a carburetor for vehicles that got 50 mph. It was revolutionary and would change the automotive and oil industry. One of the big businesses bought the idea and that was the last time anything was heard of about the new carburetor. Today, the trillions are in big pharma and it's only created a monster that will not go away. On the brighter side, much of my retirement investments are in big pharma. Nuff said.
  18. $2.89 when I went to town yesterday. Thankfully, we keep vehicles over half-full and keep gas cans topped off. Tractors are gas hogs.
  19. I laughed when you said 'when old man trouble comes around' .... When DH had his leg crushed from an iron and steel accident at a crane site, the ortho surgeon told him that he patched him up but DH would never walk normal again. DH turned to Doc and said, "that's unacceptable". He was assigned a PT therapist from church but she took herself off the case. Claimed DH would never talk to her again on Sundays. They didn't tell him that his Achilles tendon had ruptured and ended up shorter which required him to learn to walk again. Being the stubborn Kraut that he is, he shed many tears through the year-long PT agony, but does walk normal now. You will too.
  20. I talked to a charity worker from Central America on Sunday and he said that many residents in his country were not taking the shot because it was coming from China and Russia. The people were afraid of the ingredients. He did get the two shots while visiting us in the USA. His wife chose not to get them.
  21. On a brighter note, Texas scored a zero for deaths yesterday.
  22. I didn't take a call yesterday because I was already on the phone. The VA left me a voice message, wanting me to commit to taking a vaccine while I was there this coming monday while getting a steroid injection in my shoulder. If I already had the vaccine, I'm supposed to bring the paperwork proving it. I can see under the current federal administration that it won't be long before the unvaccinated won't be able to secure their rightful medical care.
  23. I heard on the news today that they won't even let the barges pass under the bridge. They are now backed up over 800 barges loaded with fuel and goods.
  24. Wisconsin could pay residents to get COVID-19 vaccine https://www.wisn.com/article/covid-19-wisconsin-doesnt-rule-out-paying-residents-to-get-vaccine/36411950 The percentage of residents who have received at least one dose has only risen a little more than 1% during the last 10 days. Wisconsin vaccination numbers, which had been on the rise for months, are now at a plateau. They dropped from a single-day high of more than 91,000 doses five weeks ago to a little more than 20,000 on Tuesday. "Probably more education because they're afraid. I was afraid at first myself," Ruby Bardwell said. From pop-up clinics in places like shopping centers and bars, health officials have tried a variety of approaches to raise the vaccination rate among those who may still be hesitant. "Now, as we say, the hard part begins. Which is, we find a lot of different, creative ways to do pop-up clinics to bring vaccine to where people are at," Health Services Deputy Secretary Julie Willems Van Dijk said Wednesday. Gov. Tony Evers didn't rule out possibly paying people to get shots at some point in the future. "We'll never say never about any opportunity to convince people to do it," he said. "We haven't reached that point, but we will do everything in our power to get people to get shots in their arms." It appears that the test group is slowing down in adding numbers. The government will now try to bait the control group with candy to get them to step into line to get stuck with the experimental drug.
  25. There have been times when I have to search through mama's bedroom to find the nighttime visitors .... butterflies, worms, bees, and insects crawling on the wall. I think some of it might be her meds, but she is SO SERIOUS when she gives me instructions to find the creatures. Good and bad days, Mt_Rider. I cherish the good days. I can't anticipate them, and sometimes am off by 180 degrees. Makes life seasoned with prayer. I helped a dear friend pack her home yesterday so she can move north. She lost her second husband and has decided to live closer to her daughter. We had a blessed time yesterday as DH made lunch and dinner at home for us (well sort of). She gave me a wonderful site for soft music and beautiful, breathtaking pictures. It is Tim Janis on YouTube. The channel can stream for several hours without ads. It was really a treat for my mom today. It gives her a break from all her soap operas she loves during the daytime and shoot-em-up programs at night. If you can stream, it's worth having Tim Janis music in the background. Lots of hymns too.
