At this point we all are well aware of the devastating fires that ripped through West Maui, Aug. 8th, 2023. Conspiracies abound regarding how this fire started, why the emergency sirens were deliberately not sounded, why the water was not available to the fire fighters, why the police appeared to purposefully block escape routes, especially along the populated and Historic, Front Street…And I am watching and listening to locals who were at ground ZERO with great interest. But, today, I don’t want to talk about any of that. I am wanting, needing to discuss the children.

Lahaina has a population of roughly 13,261 with approx. 3,315 of these being children under 18. Lahaina is a tourist town and the majority of parents that live in this quaint, old historic oasis work in the tourist industry, either in hotels, restaurants, bars, local shops, etc. Most of these people both work and rely on their “Ohana” family to watch their children when they are at work. The people of Maui are tight knit so even if you are not related by blood, it is not uncommon for the elderly in the community to adopt anyone who lives on the tiny island without a family.

On that fateful, horrific day there were many children left with their elderly Ohana and in some cases children were home alone while both parents were working. Which brings me back to the question, how many children are missing? There are reports stating that almost 900 to over 1000 people are missing, but we are not hearing anything about missing children. Why is that? If I were a parent and my child was missing for any amount of time, let alone almost 2 weeks, I would take to social media and blast their picture, and plead to my community to help me find my missing child. WHY are we not hearing from any of these parents? Just a few days ago Richard Bissen, the recently elected Mayor of Lahaina came under great scrutiny from frustrated locals and journalists when he was asked the same question that is on everyone’s mind—HOW MANY CHILDREN ARE MISSING?

When Hawaii Governor, Josh Green was asked on CBS news about a comment made by a Maui official that “a large number of the dead may have actually been children…” The Governor validated that statement.

In this interview, Green states that there are about 1050 people still missing. Now if, “a large number” of those missing are children and presumed to have perished in the fire, how many is that large number and WHY are we not hearing from hundreds of grieving parents? This is really quite mind blowing! Just think about it…we have heard dozens upon dozens of personal horror stories from survivors and those who have lost loved ones and friends, but only two stories of children dying in the fire, and they are extremely painful ones.

No one wants to hear the pain of a parent losing a child first hand, it is gut wrenching. But the stark reality remains, many of those who died on that terrible day were children…where are the grieving parents imploring on social media that their children be found? Where are the voices of the hundreds of parents or their Ohana’s reaching out on social media who haven’t giving up hope that their beloved children may still be alive? Where are they?

Has the local government silenced them? If so, for what reason? Why would anyone silence the voices of desperate parents and family members searching for their children? Why is no one talking about their missing children in West Maui?


Sometimes you get sucked into a very bizarre Netflix movie and you wonder how you ever got there.  You all know what I am talking about…so a few months back I watched this very strange, little movie short about these people living in a house that was being overtaken by the sea and the owner refused to leave until the water was flowing into the house.  It was one of those artsy fartsy creations, like a Cannes Film Festival that obviously had a deeper meaning than I was willing to submerge my soul into.  I never thought about that odd cinematic experience again until… 

So, somehow Facebook thinks I lean left at times and floats around these “save the world from global warming” on my timeline.  Sometimes I look, just to see what the Liberal lunatics are up to.  But this time I couldn’t look away!  The house!  Well, not exactly the same, but so similar it was the same house.  The very house that was in that little movie short was staring me right in the face, but not just the house…a heartbreaking, fearmongering, climate cult warning.

Obviously, now my interest is piqued.  Holland Island, let’s look into this.  

OMG, I had to wade, neck-deep through the marsh of liberal propaganda.  CLIMATE CHANGE!  RISING WATERS! ISLANDS BEING SWALLOWED BY THE SEA!  I had to change the way I asked Google to get the real, truthful answer as to what was going on with the island in the Chesapeake Bay of Maryland.  

Seriously, it was extremely arduous to sift through all the silt to get a clear view, filtered from all the propaganda, of what was really happening.  “However, thermal expansion and melting ice are not the only reasons we see “However, thermal expansion and melting ice are not the only reasons we see rising waters in the Chesapeake Bay area. There is also a process known as land subsidence, which is the sinking of the Earth’s surface due to changes that happen underground. As land sinks, the water in the Bay rises.”

Interestingly, when I was reading the above-linked article, the words “rising waters” was linked to site telling me all about how I better start building that Ark, and SOON!  But, the words “land subsidence” was not linked to anything that really explained this and how common it is for islands to succumb to this, sinking.  

I needed to know more about this land subsidence occurrence.  So like any good, cutting-edge writer, I employed Bard to look it up for me.  After all, AI is the new trend.  Here’s what Bard said:

So, just throw, ‘rising sea levels” in each one for good measure.  Actually, they aren’t really wrong; when an island sinks into the sea, the level of the water will encroach or appear to be rising on the land.  I then asked Bard to give me a list of all the islands that have sunk or are currently sinking due to Land subsidence and in every instance it had to include “climate change.”  It was almost like it was PROGRAMMED to add that.  So I did this—

Is this the truth?  As a matter of fact, going back to the reason I started to investigate this, remember that little movie short and the house on Holland Island…the Chesapeake Bay where that little island is located must be dredged every year due to immense silt buildup.  If it is not dredged then the water is not deep enough for ships to travel through.  Hmmm, rising sea levels?  

But really folks, this is a follow-the-money ideology.  Yes, some islands are indeed sinking.  And from a propaganda-soaked perspective, one could stand on the shoreline and claim that the water is rising, but in reality, the land is sinking.  This article, regarding the island nation of Tuvalu, is pretty fantastic and a great read.  The author does a wonderful job of exposing the ploys politicians use to get money employing the fearmongering of CLIMATE CHANGE!  “

“In the Yahoo News story, titled “‘Tuvalu is sinking:’ Island nation threatened by sea-level rise looks for salvation,” Paeniu explains to Yahoo News senior editor David Knowles that Tuvalu came to COP26 requesting developed countries give it money to help it take actions to stave off its climate change-induced disappearance.”

“Contrary to Paeniu and Yahoo News’ assertions, the IPCC’s recent 6th Assessment Report (AR6) does not indicate climate change has caused hurricanes to increase in number or intensity.

“There is low confidence in most reported long-term (multidecadal to centennial) trends in TC [tropical cyclone] frequency- or intensity-based metrics,” concluded the IPCC in AR6.

“Also, research consistently shows Tuvalu’s landmass is growing, not sinking beneath the waves.”

Even the BBC, YES the BBC denies what Yahoo News was claiming and states, “As discussed by the BBC, one study examined 27 islands spanning Tuvalu, Kiribati, and the Federated States of Micronesia, and found that over the last 60 years, 80 percent of the islands either maintained their size or grew, with some growing dramatically.”  And only one mention of “rising sea levels” debunking it!  

Then we have National Geographic joining in on the chat claiming that these little Pacific islands, in the middle of the ocean are actually growing, not being swallowed up by rising sea levels.  One would think that if the sea levels were actually rising and swallowing up islands that these would be the most susceptible.  RIGHT?  They all want $$$$…climate change money that the US hands out like candy.  

We must start seeing reality for what it is and stop with the “climate change” fearmongering.  The climate changes and in all actuality we are in a period of global cooling.  Ok, so I know this all started with the little short movie and islands sinking, NOT disappearing from “rising sea levels.”  But, I just had to have this discussion with Bard and I know it deviates slightly from the Island theme, but I do think it is important to see how these AI (artificial intelligence) entities are pushing the narrative…almost like someone has programmed them.

ME: we are in a period of global cooling


BARD: “No, we are not in a period of global cooling. The Earth’s climate has been warming since the Industrial Revolution, and the rate of warming has accelerated in recent decades. This warming is due to human activities, such as the burning of fossil fuels, which release greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Greenhouse gases trap heat, which causes the Earth’s temperature to rise.”

“There is a scientific consensus that the Earth is warming, and that this warming is caused by human activities. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the leading international body for the assessment of climate change, has concluded that it is extremely likely that human activities caused more than half of the observed increase in global mean surface temperature from 1951 to 2010.”

“The effects of climate change are already being felt around the world. These effects include rising sea levels, more extreme weather events, and changes in plant and animal life. Climate change is a serious threat to the planet, and it is important to take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change.”

ME: Earth is also currently experiencing a surprisingly long period with very low sunspot activity.

Bard: “Yes, that is correct. The Sun is currently in a period of low solar activity, which is known as a solar minimum. Solar minimums occur every 11 years or so, and the current solar minimum is expected to last until 2025. During a solar minimum, the Sun produces fewer sunspots, which are dark spots on the Sun’s surface that are associated with magnetic activity. Sunspots are important because they can produce flares and coronal mass ejections, which can disrupt radio communications and power grids on Earth.”

“The current solar minimum is particularly long, and it is not yet clear why this is the case. Some scientists believe that the Sun is entering a period of prolonged low activity, while others believe that the current solar minimum is just a temporary blip. More research is needed to understand why the Sun is currently experiencing such low activity.”

ME: low sunspot activity means cooler earth temperatures

Bard: “There is a weak correlation between sunspot activity and Earth’s temperature.”

“The Sun’s activity goes through an 11-year cycle, with periods of high and low sunspot activity. During periods of high sunspot activity, the Sun emits more energy, which can cause Earth’s temperature to rise slightly. During periods of low sunspot activity, the Sun emits less energy, which can cause Earth’s temperature to fall slightly.”

“However, the effects of sunspot activity on Earth’s temperature are small compared to the effects of human activities, such as the burning of fossil fuels, which release greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Greenhouse gases trap heat, which causes the Earth’s temperature to rise.”

“The current solar minimum is expected to last until 2025. It is not clear whether this will cause Earth’s temperature to fall slightly. However, it is important to note that the effects of sunspot activity on Earth’s temperature are small compared to the effects of human activities.”

You see Bard doesn’t want to admit the truth but it is virtually impossible not to!  When there are small amounts of sunspots the earth cools, when there are more sunspots the earth warms.  THAT IS SCIENCE! 

We are being so inundated with a flood of lies simply to promote the money-making scheme of climate change using fear.  This is no different than the pharmaceutical companies hiring the Grim Reaper for their Vaccine ads! 

Ahhm but look how quickly I get off topic…there is one last issue I haven’t mentioned regarding a particular phenomenon that evidently is a great concern to some people…people in politics, powerful people in politics.  Democrat Hank Johnson from the great state of Georgia questioned Admiral Robert Willard, commander of the U.S. Pacific Command on a very serious issue regarding installing 8,000 Marines from the Japanese island of Okinawa to the U.S. Pacific island territory of Guam.  The dire and pressing issue?  That the small island of Gaum had the potential to…”capsize”  YES, “tip over and capsize.”  As President Biden loves to say, “No joke!  This is not hyperbole.” 

How in the world will we combat this?  And how does climate change affect this unheard-of but obviously possible disaster?  Will the rising water, accompanied by tropical winds (caused by climate change) facilitate the capsizing of the island of Guam?  This may be the biggest issue that the Pacific Islands face, worse than sinking…one might even say, an existential threat!







When I was a kid, we were all going to die from “global cooling” and if we didn’t freeze to death then that giant hole in the ozone would cause our skin to melt right off our bodies.  But now, well, not really just now, but a while before now, Al Gore told us we would all be swept up by the rising tide of melting glaciers by 2014!  Seriously, he told then relevant, Katie Couric, in a 2006 interview that if  (the communist globalists) didn’t do something to deal with “global warming”–yeah that’s what THEY called it back then, “Yes, in fact, the World Trade Center Memorial site would be underwater.”  YIKES!  

So, there was a lot of global warming fearmongering going on around that time…all of it extremely political, and then Obama, like  “who the heck is this junior Senator,” Barack Obama jumped on the narrative liferaft and flooded this agenda so hard he had his propaganda Czar scare the crap out of little kids, THE SKY IS FALLING…so reminiscent of my childhood where we were all going to freeze to death, or starve to death or get nuked by Russia.  I mean come on, THEY hired SPOCK to scare us in the 70s!  Spock, the most pragmatic guy of the day…Spock couldn’t lie, it was against his Vulkan nature.  


Ok, so I veered off topic a bit, but just enough to show you how potent and effective political propaganda is.  But the reason I am writing this is to shout out a warning to some of our most influential political authorities that they are in GRAVE danger like their very existence could be wiped out!  

Influencers like Bill and Melinda gates! They paid $43 million for a massive house on the beach in Del Mar, California, near San Diego.  My gosh, don’t they realize the risk they are putting themselves in?  Who’s going to get this disaster-prone property in the divorce?  Melinda needs to take their children and RUN to higher ground!  

Bill and Melinda Gates California oceanfront home
Bill and Melinda Gates Oceanfront home doomed by climate change to be swallowed up by the ocean

What about the Obamas?  Don’t they realize that Hawaii will be underwater soon?  They won’t be safe in their  $11.75 million mansion in Martha’s Vineyard either!  Who will warn them?  And what about the house they are building in Hawaii?  It is right on the ocean!  

What about Al Gore?  Why aren’t these people terrified to spend millions of dollars on homes that will soon be underwater?  Just 3 years after his doom and gloom interview with Couric, an expert on Global warming, and warning that NY city would be underwater by 2014, Al Gore spent nearly $9 million for an ocean view property in Montecito, California!  WHAT?  Did he have a death wish?

Poor Nancy Pelosi and her recent purchase of a $25 million dollar, oceanfront property on Juniper Island, Flordia?  Good Lord woman, we know you are very old and perhaps suffering from early-stage dementia, but do you really think that all of your millions will save you from the rising tides of destruction your Democrat party has been warning us about?  Doesn’t GLOBAL WARMING SCARE YOU like you have fearmongered the American public for the last 2 decades?  Pelosi is climate change denier

How about the truth?  All of these people are liars!  YES, lying, dog-faced pony soldiers!  These people don’t believe the Bullchit they are peddling, obviously!  They are “climate deniers!”  They are, right in your face, denying their own “Climate Change” agenda!  

No different with Joe Biden pushing us to drive Electric Cars when he has never owned one!  And how about Kamala Harris, our Vice President who doesn’t even know how to plug in an Electric vehicle as her first experience, shown on National TV was awkward and obviously something completely foreign to her. 

It’s all a well-thought-out lie!  



I came across a few scientific papers a while ago while doing some research and just recently pulled them back up. Since what I was researching was unrelated to the base of the information contained in these articles, I only focused on what I was looking for and decided to save the “bombshell” information for a later date. BOOM!  It was all very interesting to read and contains some information that I don’t think the American public is aware of. One fact that struck me as disturbing is this: “China produces almost all vaccines that are in common use globally, compared with the US, the UK, and European countries, fewer vaccines are available in China. Meningococcal B (MenB) vaccine and adenovirus (Adenovirus) vaccine are not available in China Human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV) was licensed in July 2016, ten years after licensure in some high-income countries. Multi-component vaccines such as MMR-Varicella (MMRV), HepB-Haemophilus influenza type b conjugate vaccine (Hib), Typhoid-HepA, DTaP-IPV/HepB, and DTaP-Hib/Hep/IPV are not available in China.”

“China produces almost all vaccines that are in common use globally,  compared with the US, the UK, and European countries, fewer vaccines are available in China.”


CHINA produces almost ALL of the world’s vaccines! And when this quote states that a particular vaccine is, “not available in China” it makes me think perhaps the wording should have read, “not used on Chinese children.” And then I looked at the Chinese vaccine schedule they use to vaccinate their children…now considering that these vaccines are made in China, one would think that they would be the scientists who truly understood how and when these vaccines should be used.  Take a look at this immunization chart

vaccination schedule from birth to 7 years old in China.
Image from bio med central

All the green vaccines are the “government’s Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI) prevents 12 vaccine-preventable diseases (VPD) through routine immunization.”  The vaccines in yellow are not included in the Chinese Government vaccine schedule but can be obtained and paid for out of pocket.  Moreover, considering that the Chinese (communist) government, makes these vaccines, one would presume that their scientists know when and how many vaccines an infant should receive.  So, reviewing this schedule chart, a typical Chinese infant receives EIGHT vaccines in their first 4 months of life, compared to an American infant (birth-4 months ) who is injected with THIRTEEN vaccines!   

PROFITS and crime!

Contract prices for program (EPI) vaccines ranged from $0.1 to $5.7 US dollars per dose, whereas private-market vaccines ranged from $2.4 to $102.9 US dollars per dose!  WOW!  Who knew how much these vaccines were being sold for! This is a BILLION dollar industry!  Much more profitable than the average pharmaceutical industry, as the goal is to have every child on the planet vaccinated against something!  This is a never-ending cash cow…BIG business with even BIGGER profits to be made!   But we are putting the lives of our children and our citizens into the hands of Communist China!  How smart is that?  Do we trust Communist China?  Have we ever trusted China?   “Propelled by government subsidies, aggressive marketing and – according to court documents – even bribery, drug maker Changchun Changsheng Bio-technology has seen years of robust growth and big profits. But after it was exposed  supplying ineffective DPT (diphtheria, whooping cough and tetanus) vaccines to be used on babies as young as three months old, and forging data for its rabies vaccines , the company now faces the wrath of China’s leadership and millions of parents.

Premier Li Keqiang on Monday called for an immediate investigation into the substandard vaccines, saying the drug maker had crossed a “moral bottom line”.

The Shenzhen-listed firm was then slammed in an editorial by official news agency Xinhua, headlined “Let the vaccine safety lawbreakers lose all their fortunes”.  (excerpt taken from SCMP News. July 23, 2018)

Did anyone hear about this?  I sure didn’t and I am pretty active in keeping up with pertinent vaccine news.  Or how about this? “According to court papers available online, company employees have been involved in a number of bribery cases in the last couple of years. In the most recent one, last week, Changsheng Bio-tech sales representative Wu Yuhai was found to have paid 164,000 yuan (US$24,200) in bribes to the head of the Changling disease control centre, Wang Feng, between 2010 and 2015, according to a court ruling in Shangqiu, Henan province. Wang was jailed for eight years for taking bribes and other offences, but the document did not give a verdict on Wu.  China’s vaccine scandal recalls memories of product safety woes…this refers to the tainted baby formula: “54,000 children were reported to be sick and four had died.”  Didn’t hear about this either!  Makes me want to take a Tylenol.

There were a few reports on this scandal but most were buried.  This simply brings us to dealing with China on any imports, especially medical imports into the US.  China has NEVER had a reputation of being Honest or having integrity!  And yet, in Aug, of 2019 the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission held a hearing on the United States’ growing dependency on China’s pharmaceutical products.  And folks, China is not just in the US market for vaccines it also supplies us with 97% of our ANTIBIOTICS!  Perhaps this was one of the main reasons that politicians on both sides were freaking out about President Trump imposing punishingly high tariffs on China, which could have resulted in a trade war with China.   “In 2008, the contamination of a raw ingredient imported from China and used to make heparin, a blood-thinning drug, was associated with at least eighty-one deathsin the United States. According to an investigative journalist, fraud and manipulation of quality data is still endemic in Chinese pharmaceutical firms.”  

So, knowing that people in China, people that make our drugs & vaccines, have virtually no moral compass except one that points North to profits, should we perhaps take the voices of the “anti-vaccines” a little more seriously?  Because I believe we are all keenly aware that when the stakes/profits are so high corruption will also be soaring.  And what do they know that we ignore when it comes to vaccine scheduling?   Why aren’t they giving their infants 13 vaccines by 4 months of age?  And here is one more thing to think about,..”The US childhood immunization schedule specifies 26 vaccine doses for infants aged less than 1 year—the most in the world—yet 33 nations have lower IMRs (infant mortality rate).  In 2009, five of the 34 nations with the best IMRs required 12 vaccine doses, the least amount, while the United States required 26 vaccine doses, the most of any nation.” ~US National Library of Medicine
National Institutes of Healthand this is a .gov!   In simple terms, the US has the highest IMR and coincidently the largest number of vaccine injections given to our children.  And we are trusting China to provide us and the world these vaccines as well as our antibiotics!

ILL-Breeding and Impropriety is the New Online Norm!

ill-breeding and impropriety is the new ONLINE norm!

We see it all the time, experience it daily…rudeness, ill-mannered, selfish, self-centered people…and I am blaming social media!  This is a platform where one can ignore, can be as contentious as can be, and forget any of the social graces and norms of society that have been a part of our culture since we became a country.  

We can buy and sell on Social media, we can create funding accounts, we can espouse our political, religious, or moral standpoints all behind a protective glass screen.  But has this great innovation made us better people?  Has it taken those long-standing 3 degrees of separation to only one degree of rudeness and apathy? 

Remember when our forms of direct communication, if not in person, were via an actual voice-to-voice conversation on a phone that was attached by a cord, to the wall?  A situation that caused us to stop and sit, and focus on the person on the other end of the line?  I do.  I also remember corresponding with friends and family members with the elusive pen and paper.  But these days are long gone.  We now have a DECLINE or IGNORE button which can send our callers directly to voice mail until we decide to or not to return their call…we can hit delete to any email and send it away to cyberspace.

We also have instant messaging where people can communicate with others, magically, instantly.  But with this type of communication one can simply, view and then ignore the message as if it were never received…even though the sender knows…  And this has become the new social norm!  


I think we have ALL experienced ‘ghosting’ at one point or another on any form of Social Media.  But what does this say about us, about our character? ” 






I think we have ALL experienced “ghosting” at one point or another on any form of Social Media.  But what does this say about us, about our character?  If you don’t know the term, “ghosting” means when you write to someone, you are quite aware that they have viewed your question or your comment but they simply do not respond.  This action or lack of action has become so prevalent on Social Media that a NEW TERM had to be coined to describe it. And, for the record, I am NOT describing a situation where someone innocently misses a message…I believe we have all had this happen to us personally; a message gets buried or an email is inadvertently sent to spam…NO, I am describing a situation where an individual simply does not feel it is necessary or important to respond.  

What does this say about our character, our civility, and just plain common manners?  Is the cyber-world so far removed from the real world that we feel justified to “ghost” people when we don’t want to respond?  Hasn’t the cyber-world become our real world now?  We don’t send letters, we send emails, we don’t call, we text…we don’t send handwritten, postage paid invitations to parties or special events, we use online party planners, Facebook events, Instagram and Twitter and depending on your age, this is just how it is now done without a second thought…and this makes our lives so much easier.  Right?   I am not condoning these, as I use them as well…and yes, most times it does make my life easier.  

There was a time when all of my party invitations were handwritten with a SASE (most young people have NO idea what that even means).  It was arduous, time-consuming, and expensive, but it was, and sometimes still is, the proper and etiquette filled approach.  You crossed your fingers that people would actually take the time to respond and send back their RSVP whether it was to accept or decline, after all, there was a cost involved.  These were truly archaic times compared to the ease and simplicity of our current system of things.  But has technology really made things such as this simpler or has it actually turned us into RUDE, Ill-Bred people who lack even the simplest of decorum? 

I am fully convinced that the latter is the truth and I have experienced this first hand by those one would think were bred and raised with certain social graces, etiquette, and manners. I have experienced messages sent to friends to who we invited to special events where a head-count is imperative, read but not responded to.  And not simply just one message, but several.  I think to myself, “the arrogance of these people…”  And it is not just very special events or party invitations where basic manners are lost, it is also buying and selling online…Ignoring or if you will, ghosting has become a part of many individuals’ character and this is NOT a good thing and we shouldn’t accept it.  This behavior should never become normal to us.

I am not sure what if anything can be done to correct these social disgraces…Dear Abby and Miss Manners have gone by the by.  All I can do is give you some of my wisdom and advice.  If someone sends you an online invitation to a special event or a party they are hosting, it is safe to assume that they feel that you are special to them in some way to extend an invitation…  Unless of course it is a fundraiser and then they may think that you have the resources to help with their cause–these are different, but still should not be ignored!  Moreover, all events take time and money and planning for a successful outcome, and if you were invited, through an online planner, a Facebook event message, or even a simple email, RESPOND!  Feel grateful that they invited you!  Show some class and etiquette!  We can not complain about, “kids these days lack manners” if the adults in their lives lack them as well!

The same decorum is also expected for buying or selling on Marketplace or Craigslist.  Stop ignoring, stop ghosting, stop being so arrogant that you don’t feel a response is necessary! It is time that we brought Social Graces, Proper Etiquette, and Manners to our online lives!

 4Organic? In or Out? 

4Organic? In or Out?

September 6, 2015

We recently acquired the name  Now I was pretty excited about this new acquisition to add to my portfolio but considering my mixed feelings about organic meat and produce I must question my motives.  Now I will be the first person in line at the veg. stand on the side of the road in our quaint little town, because I honestly think there is nothing better than the taste of a sun-ripened, warm mater right off the vine!  Delights my heart in Mid October just remembering biting into that sweet, ruby red tomato—no salt needed!  I can generally load up a grocery bag with the finest of what Mother Nature can produce for less than $10.00 and that includes all sorts of squashes, corn, cukes and whatever else my farmer neighbor down the streets happens to have out on his stand at the time. 

Now, this brings me to the crux of my problem.  Now it is mid October and all the stands in our town–and we have many–are closed down, well except for the HUGE one and they will be selling pumpkins for cheap, all squashes and gourds will be clearanced and Taters and Onions will be a bargain price of $5.00 for a 20 pound bag. until they pack up and head South for the winter. So it is finished and my heart cries out… So what am I to do?  I wander the “organic” isles of the grocery store and realize that I am being emotionally drained by STICKER SHOCK!  How in the world is it that I can buy 10 vine-ripened tomatoes from the stand down the street for about a $1.00 but here at the organic aisle in the store they are $6.99 a POUND!  WHAT!  How did this happen?  Will I have to settle for the “regular” (for lack of better words) produce until next summer?  And the answer to that question is; YES, YES I WILL!  BUT, will my family suffer for my cheapness?  Will they know the difference? Most likely not as they do not have the emotional attachment that I have formed to fresh, out of the garden veggies.  They do not have the anticipation that I have become accustomed to as I slowly drive up to the rickety stand on the side of the road…the giddiness that I have, just wondering what was harvested that day!  No, that is MY emotional attachment, they will just eat whatever I cook for them and gosh darn it, they will LOVE IT!

So what shall I do with the name  Not sure yet.  Perhaps I will start a little Fungi farm in my basement.  I hear they can mushroom into very successful businesses 🙂

Cindy Burke, an author, cook, and blogger did an excellent interview with NPR news and she had some interesting comments regarding the organic industry.  Take a moment to check it out.

31,000 scientists reject ‘global warming’ agenda

‘Mr. Gore’s movie has claims no informed expert endorses’

Posted: May 19, 2008

8:51 pm Eastern

By Bob Unruh

© 2008 WorldNetDaily

More than 31,000 scientists across the U.S. – including more than 9,000 Ph.D.s in fields such as atmospheric science, climatology, Earth science, environment and dozens of other specialties – have signed a petition rejecting “global warming,” the assumption that the human production of greenhouse gases is damaging Earth’s climate.

“There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate,” the petition states. “Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.”

The Petition Project actually was launched nearly 10 years ago, when the first few thousand signatures were assembled. Then, between 1999 and 2007, the list of signatures grew gradually without any special effort or campaign.

But now, a new effort has been conducted because of an “escalation of the claims of ‘consensus,’ release of the movie ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ by Mr. Al Gore, and related events,” according to officials with the project.

“Mr. Gore’s movie, asserting a ‘consensus’ and ‘settled science’ in agreement about human-caused global warming, conveyed the claims about human-caused global warming to ordinary moviegoers and to public school children, to whom the film was widely distributed. Unfortunately, Mr. Gore’s movie contains many very serious incorrect claims which no informed, honest scientist could endorse,” said project spokesman and founder Art Robinson.

WND submitted a request to Gore’s office for comment but did not get a response.

Robinson said the dire warnings about “global warming” have gone far beyond semantics or scientific discussion now to the point they are actually endangering people.

“The campaign to severely ration hydrocarbon energy technology has now been markedly expanded,” he said. “In the course of this campaign, many scientifically invalid claims about impending climate emergencies are being made. Simultaneously, proposed political actions to severely reduce hydrocarbon use now threaten the prosperity of Americans and the very existence of hundreds of millions of people in poorer countries,” he said.

In just the past few weeks, there have been various allegations that both shark attacks and typhoons have been sparked by “global warming.”

The late Professor Frederick Seitz, the past president of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and winner of the National Medal of Science, wrote in a letter promoting the petition, “The United States is very close to adopting an international agreement that would ration the use of energy and of technologies that depend upon coal, oil, and natural gas and some other organic compounds.”

“This treaty is, in our opinion, based upon flawed ideas. Research data on climate change do not show that human use of hydrocarbons is harmful. On the contrary, there is good evidence that increased atmospheric carbon dioxide is environmentally helpful,” he wrote.

Accompanying the letter sent to scientists was a 12-page summary and review of research on “global warming,” officials said.

“The proposed agreement would have very negative effects upon the technology of nations throughout the world, especially those that are currently attempting to lift from poverty and provide opportunities to the over 4 billion people in technologically underdeveloped countries,” Seitz wrote.

Robinson said the project targets scientists because “It is especially important for America to hear from its citizens who have the training necessary to evaluate the relevant data and offer sound advice.”

He said the “global warming agreement,” written in Kyoto, Japan, in 1997, and other plans “would harm the environment, hinder the advance of science and technology, and damage the health and welfare of mankind.”

“Yet,” he said, “the United Nations and other vocal political interests say the U.S. must enact new laws that will sharply reduce domestic energy production and raise energy prices even higher.

“The inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness include the right of access to life-giving and life-enhancing technology. This is especially true of access to the most basic of all technologies: energy. These human rights have been extensively and wrongly abridged,” he continued. “During the past two generations in the U.S., a system of high taxation, extensive regulation, and ubiquitous litigation has arisen that prevents the accumulation of sufficient capital and the exercise of sufficient freedom to build and preserve needed modern technology.

“These unfavorable political trends have severely damaged our energy production, where lack of industrial progress has left our country dependent upon foreign sources for 30 percent of the energy required to maintain our current level of prosperity,” he said. “Moreover, the transfer of other U.S. industries abroad as a result of these same trends has left U.S. citizens with too few goods and services to trade for the energy that they do not produce. A huge and unsustainable trade deficit and rapidly rising energy prices have been the result.

“The necessary hydrocarbon and nuclear energy production technologies have been available to U.S. engineers for many decades. We can develop these resources without harm to people or the environment. There is absolutely no technical, resource, or environmental reason for the U.S. to be a net importer of energy. The U.S. should, in fact, be a net exporter of energy,” he said.

He told WND he believes the issue has nothing to do with energy itself, but everything to do with power, control and money, which the United Nations is seeking. He accused the U.N. of violating human rights in its campaign to ban much energy research, exploration, and development.

“In order to alleviate the current energy emergency and prevent future emergencies, we need to remove the governmental restrictions that have caused this problem. Fundamental human rights require that U.S. citizens and their industries be free to produce and use the low cost, abundant energy that they need. As the 31,000 signatories of this petition emphasize, environmental science supports this freedom,” he said.

The Petition Project website today said there are 31,072 scientists who have signed up, and Robinson said more names continue to come in.

In terms of Ph.D. scientists alone, it already has 15 times more scientists than are seriously involved in the U.N.’s campaign to “vilify hydrocarbons,” officials told WND.

“The very large number of petition signers demonstrates that, if there is a consensus among American scientists, it is in opposition to the human-caused global warming hypothesis rather than in favor of it,” the organization noted.

The project was set up by a team of physicists and physical chemists who do research at several American institutions and collects signatures when donations provide the resources to mail out more letters.

“In a group of more than 30,000 people, there are many individuals with names similar or identical to other signatories, or to non-signatories – real or fictional. Opponents of the petition project sometimes use this statistical fact in efforts to discredit the project. For example, Perry Mason and Michael Fox are scientists who have signed the petition – who happen also to have names identical to fictional or real non-scientists,” the website said.

The petition is needed, supporters said, simply because Gore and others “have claimed that the ‘science is settled’ – that an overwhelming ‘consensus’ of scientists agrees with the hypothesis of human-caused global warming, with only a handful of skeptical scientists in disagreement.”

The list of scientists includes 9,021 Ph.D.s, 6,961 at the master’s level, 2,240 medical doctors and 12,850 carrying a bachelor of science or equivalent academic degree.

The Petition Project’s website includes both a list of scientists by name as well as a list of scientists by state.

A Resolution geared at protecting Conservative Americans against Deploraphobia!

January 22, 2017



The Conservative Right is constantly reminded that we did not win the popular vote for this election.  The Left wants us, in no uncertain terms to understand that we are NOT the Majority, but the minority!  Well hot damn, we are considered a minority!  Ok, I can go with that.  However, that being said, where is Loretta Lynch?  Our US Attorney General!  Isn’t she supposed to protect our rights against intense violence and hate that has ensued as a result of Trump being elected as our President?  Democrats proposed a resolution (HR 569) and a stronger resolution, modeled on the HR 569 is currently in the US House of Representatives, this resolution condemns hate crimes against certain Minorities. 

Not all mind you, just one particular group.  This doesn’t seem to fit the American concept of equal justice one bit.  However, I will highlight a few of the qualifiers in this Resolution and add my own additions.  

“Whereas the rise of hateful and anti-Trump speech, violence, and cultural ignorance plays into the false narrative spread by Domestic terrorist groups of US hatred of Trump, and can encourage certain individuals to react in extreme and violent ways: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the House of Representatives”—
(1) expresses its condolences for the victims of anti-Trump hate crimes;

(2) steadfastly confirms its dedication to the rights and dignity of all its citizens of all faiths, beliefs, and cultures;

(3) denounces in the strongest terms the increase of hate speech, intimidation, violence, vandalism, arson, and other hate crimes targeted against Trump supporters or those perceived to be Trump supporters;

(4) recognizes that the United States Conservative community has made countless positive contributions to United States society;

(5) declares that the civil rights and civil liberties of all United States citizens, including Trump supporters in the United States, should be protected and preserved;

(6) urges local and Federal law enforcement authorities to work to prevent hate crimes; and to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law those perpetrators of hate crimes; and

(7) reaffirms the inalienable right of every citizen to live without fear and intimidation, and to practice their freedom of faith.

Ok, so I rewrote this a bit.  Every place that it now says, Trump, or Trump supporters, Domestic, Conservative, replace with Muslim; that is the original text.  I think if the Attorney General was an advocate of protecting ALL citizens of the United States from violent acts of hate mongers, then this bill would not pertain only to protecting Muslims from Islamophobia, but every citizen of the United States against hate crimes. It would be ridiculous to create a resolution that only applies to persecuted Trump supporters, even though the numbers in that group are quite large and comprise a YUGE portion of the US population.  So why isn’t it just as ridiculous and pro-religionist (yep it’s a word) to have this Resolution/Bill pertain to Muslims only?  Attorney General Lynch states, “We always have a concern when we see the rhetoric rising against any particular group in America, that it might inspire others to violent action — and that violent action is what we would have to deal with,”  So Ms. Lynch, did you simply miss all the inspirational calling for acts of violence against Trump supporters for the last year or so?  Have you not seen the riots, the violent aggression against Trump Supporters?  I assume by your statement, that we are a, “particular group in America” and an extremely large group at that, but touted by the media and the Liberals as a minority–not the popular vote.  Have you not heard the “rhetoric” against us, that has inspired “others” to “violent action”?   Lynch goes on to state, “At this point…we’re not prepared to limit any particular ideology to what may have inspired these individuals. There are a number of groups that are on social media, looking to encourage people to commit acts of violence within the homeland, so at this point we simply do not want to rule anything out.”  UMMMM HELLO Ms. Lynch, WE’RE HERE, WE’RE HERE, WE’RE HERE!  Considering Mrs. Clinton called us, Islamophobes, to the entire world, am quite certain that your statements pertain to protecting Muslims against Conservatives.  Hmmmm, we are not flying planes into buildings, blowing up people, chopping off heads, driving trucks into crowded areas.  You also didn’t see us, blocking major highways, roadways, rioting, looting, destroying property, assaulting innocent people, etc.

So we have seen and are currently seeing this country ablaze with a conflagration, specifically intended to spark  against those who hold a certain belief that Trump is a person we support. It is our belief and our constitutional right to hold that belief.  And yet, we have an (outgoing) Attorney General, YOU, who have done absolutely nothing to protect the citizens of the US from the well organized and well funded domestic terrorists that have been and continue to perpetrate acts of violence and property destruction against those who hold a different ideology or belief than the “majority”!  Is it because we are not Muslims?  We are not Liberals?  Is it because we are average American Citizens?  Shouldn’t a proposed bill such as HR 569 equally protect ALL of the Citizens of the United States and not just one religious or political affiliation?  Or just this one, Muslim?  OR, was the Democratic agenda something completely different than protecting people?  I suspect the latter!   I will introduce yet another new word to add to our ever-expanding vocabulary,  DEPLORAPHOBIA!

Again, it boils down to the 1%…climate change elitists! 

Again, it boils down to the 1%…climate change elitists!

February 11, 2017

I have been so completely enthralled with the muses and thoughts of Scott Adams, that I had to post one of his blog entries here!



About the 97% of Climate Scientists

Posted February 10th, 2017 @ 2:31pm in #climate science

One of the most famous statistics in the world of politics is the claim that 97% of climate scientists agree with the idea that humans activity is boosting CO2 to dangerous levels.

Critics say the 97% is misleading because the critics like to include in their own list the scientists that are working for energy companies. The industry-paid scientists and engineers have less credibility, say the critics of the climate science critics.

Recently I retweeted a link to a climate science whistleblower. I don’t have any way to evaluate his claims. But his story did a good job of illustrating the flow of data from the measuring devices all the way to the published papers and then to your brain. And what I got out of that was that very few people have direct access to the measuring devices and the original data. Let’s say 1% of climate scientists are actually involved in generating the temperature data and deciding what to include, what to smooth, what to replace, and so on. Apparently you can measure Earth’s temperature a number of ways, from ice core samples to satellites, to ocean buoys, to land thermometers. I might be missing a few. Oh, and each of those methods probably changes a bit over time, so you have some apples-to-oranges comparisons if you look at history.

In other words, even the 1% involved in direct measurements might not be involved in all the different forms of it.

What follows next is pure speculation, based on my years of experience in corporate America and my understanding of human nature. But it seems to me that 99% of the 97% are relying on the accuracy and honesty of the 1% who actually produce the temperature measurements. Sure, the other scientists read the papers and see whatever “adjustments” were made by the authors. But that seems like opening the hood of the car, looking at the outside of the engine, and determining that it’s all good on the inside.

Speaking of my corporate experience, this reminds me of a situation when I worked for the phone company. 100% of the employees believed that one of the Executive Directors in our group was a Ph.D. in some sort of technology field. After all, he said he was, and the Human Resources group does background checks before hiring. So he had to be a Ph.D., right?

But it turns out he was a con man. He had no Ph.D. The Human Resources group was two years behind in their background checks. When they caught up with him, he was fired immediately.

I’m open to correction on my assumption that 97% of climate scientists depend on the accuracy and honesty of the handful of people with direct access to the data. Let me know if I got that wrong. If I’m wrong, that supports my point that non-scientists such as myself can’t be expected to have useful opinions on science topics.

You just witnessed a little trick I learned from President Trump. I gave myself two ways to win and no way to lose. You should try it. It works every time.

I keep seeing all the bruhaha over Al Gore’s electric usage. 34% more than the average American household? Gee Al, how do you ever expect to make all these electric cars popular if you are only using 34% more than the average?

Well, being the electricity hog family that we are, it is just common sense that when you have a big house and are NOT really very energy-saving conscientious, your electric bill is going to be way higher than the average ranger. Now, we are just little peons in the wash cycle, but we do our share to keep our Electric company in the black. I suppose if we stood on our soapbox and screamed, “GLOBAL WARMING–We are all going to die if we don’t stop burning coal to make electricity.” (well our electricity comes from a hydro plant) then I would be considered a HUGE HYPOCRITE!

We are just a pod on the bean poll, but this is what I receive every few months from our electric company…personally, instead of guilting our family for using so much electricity, they should be sending us a gift certificate for dinner, to Panera perhaps for being such good and loyal customers.


We are certainly doing our part…
