The Truth About The Fake Press
‘There is no such thing, at this date in the world’s history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it.
The business of the Journalist is to destroy truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread.
You know it and I know it and what folly , is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals for rich men behind the scenes.
We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.’ ~ John Swinton, former Chief of Staff, The New York Times, 1953

Thursday already?
Up early MN on purpose. YAY! Good music, London Symphonette and SW Radio is the plan.
Doing some organizing of index cards & paperwork on my assigned writing project. That movie with Angelina Jolie "The Changeling" is a documentary, of the true 1920s story of the Wineville Chicken Coop Murders. Interesting, that so many films are documentaries. Most of James Bond flicks are Ian Fleming's experiences in MI6, in his many books. Gorky Park is next.
My neighbor brought over a box, left on back porch. About 20 DVDs, most I'd not seen, Gorky Park is a documentary.
Supposed to be 100 degrees on Friday. Sweat time, hot in the city.

Yes, I'm prepping. Seeds & storage, recipes for SaM bags. ToDo List updates needed, or, I'll be flailing all over the place.

Friday FUN!
Still on a paper, history of witch craft and Llewellyn out of London, Arthur Waite's Tarot came after Visconti deck.

Another fine Sun Day in what used to be, kind of, the good old USA.
I'm heading off to watch Jurassic Park.
OH, The Man in the Iron Mask, was a documentary. Where False Flag shooters "appear" to go, never to be seen again.
There is nothing new, under the SUN.

Keep prepping and carry on![/b]

Monday?
My day of reading.

Dig this y'all! I went to The Mother Earth News Fair this weekend where I met Jane Austin. You should check out what she and her husband have done on their homestead https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5OPgDPg80c
They also run Prepper Camp, a weekend conference in the fall. I think I'll be going this year. http://www.preppercamp.com/

Hey dirty, I liked her pump bidet shower. It's a good idea for the boys and girls.

Last week, I bit the $$$.$$ bullet and bought a Katadyn. No electricity req'd.
I've used them before, and have been carrying the Hiker model, they're great at 0.01 microns, but very pricey. I'd recommend those anytime. Apparently they're from Switzerland and been around since late 1920s.
I also finished up buying my Medical gear, except for IV bags. I have several Tube Sets & plenty of large and small bore pokers. I've about 8 1L bags of fluids. I'll be a roving hospital with the skills as well.

I can choose who I'd give or not give CPR or ACLS to. I might spend a few bucks on some more, like, life saving items with electrical paddles :mrgreen:

Katadyne, nice! I've been looking at those too. Great job on the med supplies as well!

I ordered the Katadyn VARIO model, they fit good with 32 & 48 oz Nalgene bottles.
Oh wow, I was looking at AEDs, they run about $600.
I think I'd just give a dam'd good chest thump, with my fist if chest compressions don't work.
I still need to order some Naso&pharyngeal ET tubes & Ambu bag.

Hey dirtymurphy!
So, I got to thinkin' ( :mrgreen: ) about the 10 Liter gravity water filter bags by Katadyn, used for camping or off grid. They're not cheap, I'm not either, but....

I have a Grainger 3 or 5 gallon wide mouth square bottle with a top handle. It's tucked away, not sure of gallons.
The wide mouth lid is solid. What if we drilled a hole in the lid, used a ceramic or ?? filter, like those on Berkey etc. Can do dirty water, must clean filter with green scrubbie.
Filled bottle at lake etc, hung upside down, in some sort of a nylon strap type sling, with a tubing on the part of the filter that sticks out.
Put an inline PEX type ball valve to turn off/on.

I'm thinking of sending the Kid the Desalinator Katadyn, they supply Militaries. So it must be good.

I've been keeping busy, got the chainsaw running thanks to a mechanic friend and finally got the grasses cut. Every day I wake up at 5, get some coffee and set two fires, one of hardwood in the cast iron fire pit and the other fire pit made of bricks I save for the soft wood. Have been collecting the charcoal from both and am saving it up until i can eventually sell some or find another use for it to make some money. Have at least 15lbs of ash now and it's seriously working at keeping the slugs at bay against the Hostas. Excited to see how it does as we progress into summer.

Other than that, I've been trying to fix my hedgers by turning them into corded since the batteries are old non lithium and it's just easier that way.

Image

My seeds have begun sprouting :D :D, planted Carrots, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Lettuce, Peppers and a bunch of peppermint seeds. Got my hands on a peppermint plant and I just transplanted her into a 1 gallon and put her outside in the shade to harden her her off.

Been doing some landscaping work for my neighbor, and so I can build up my resume for a landscaping job. He wanted 6 shrubs planted on his back hill so they would eventually fill it out and he'd have less work. I think it turned out great.
Each hole is 2.5ft deep, and 20-25" wide. I filled the hole up with a mix potting/top soil, loosened the roots up and sprinkled some Xtreme Gardening Mycorrhizae for beneficial fungi. I then fertilized all of them with 7 gallons of water, that I mixed with a light solution of seaweed for transplant shock, to make them resistant against drought/flood, prevention of disease/fungis, etc. Also a splash of GH RapidStart to encourage explosive root growth and a splash of GN Armor Si which is a dose of Silica and potassium, which should boost the stalk size and thus growth potential. After a month or two I'll start feeding them GH MaxiBloom one of my favorite base ferts. This link is $8 for a 2.2LB bag, 5 tablespoons of this stuff is good for 15 gallons. Lasts me forever, and I don't need anything else but supplements like calcium/magnesium.

Glad you're all prepping and staying in good hopes/spirits. Keep at it, positive vibes and energy coming from me to all of you reading this, have a wonderful day, evening, or night :mrgreen:

Friday?
Hey Kink, I used to put a pie pan out with beer for the snails n slugs. No Hostas here in AZ, I wish we could grow them.
Check your hedger's label, PM me the Voltage and Current, also the same info on the charge adapter. I got many older ideas :mrgreen:

I get emails from @Engineering_360 (they're on Twitter, I'm not)
Scientists create insect ice cream, maggot sausage to promote alternative food sources

Prep on!

Bear in mind that plants like hostas that attract lots of slugs and snails tend to be fire retardant plants. If wildfires are a landscape design consideration then these plants can be handy in strategic locations.
