Back again,,some nostalgia

I have not posted anything in a while. Time to get back to that.

There really hasn't been a lot to post,, No big news. Just the day to day , keeping up with stuff,,stuff. Nothing to blog about. Still watching the world turn crazy. Still supporting Ron Paul, though not in any official capacity.
That is looking hopeful. We'll see after Iowa.

I had a great day with my sister, stomping through the woods. She wanted to get some Princess Pine and make wreaths, like we did when we were kids. Cool,I'm up for that.. But it is a bit late in the year. We have had a really mild winter so far and we actually found some.

It was neat, wandering around the same woods I grew up in. It has grown up a bit over the last 40 years or so. And my Mom gave me some old Newsletters from the Conch Train, And it got me thinking of how and when this Blog started.

So, some nostalgia

There was a monthly newsletter in the Company I worked for when all this started.

So I have been looking through and scanning "old" pictures.
I will probably be posting some of the others. And get pack to posting in general.

Garden In Early

We have had an early spring (surprise) and I got my garden planted early.
I never really trust the UP weather, I have been caught by frost before , but I took the chance this year. I got the planting done mid May, and have sprouts up already.
The rule of thumb is 1st of June. I know I am taking a chance, but it has been nice.
Keeping fingers crossed.

“Well, it's their fault for bringing their kids into a battle.”

I offer my apologies to those of you with gentler nature of sensitive stomachs.
I need to interject some reality.

The Video released by Wikileaks .


The media is barely covering this here. Apparently they are trying to put just the right spin on it. Or they hope it will go away.

They Can't
Because of this,,
“Well, it's their fault for bringing their kids into a battle.”

They didn't.
The battle was brought to them, to their home and neighborhood.
This angers me.,,add it to the list.
We have been discussing it elsewhere.
I would suppose it is being discussed all over the web.
This sums it up,

It is sobering.
My responce,
[QUOTE=pcosmar]My First reaction was revulsion. Then anger and disgust. And sadness.

Now it needs to be analyzed tactically. Rationally. Logically.

I do however think it is a good reminder and a warning to us.
We have watched the Tea Party portrayed as violent. When in fact,the only violence was directed at the Tea Party. We have seen the MIAC Report describing conservatives, Christians and gun owners as Domestic Terrorists. We are described as Angry White Guys. Well some of us are.
Of course some are angry "black" guys, and some are angry atheists and a good number of them are female.
They/we are angry. But we have been and are a peaceful movement
I don't think the Media staged arrest of the Hunaree was an accident. There is a effort on to stifle dissent. How long till we are in the cross hairs?
Wikileaks announced the release of this.
They knew it was going to be released. The Hutaree are just the beginning.

This is our future. This is how an authoritarian government enforces control.

A Little Wood

I hadn't posted in a while. Not much news.

I was just cutting some wood and snapped a few pictures.
Yes, that is an 18 inch blade, but not an 18 inch tree. I cut wood every day an put it in to dry. I don't have enough space in the basement to store much,
I have a system, some drying, some ready. It is a constant cycle.
And of course there are the critters. Supervising the big puppy (she will be a year old) and all the others.
Just for those that think all I do is play WoW. I enjoy the game, and got a time card for Christmas. But it is not ALL I do.

Days run together, same routine every day. Cut wood and keep the fire going. I drive Carol to work on days when the roads aren't clear. She doesn't care for winter driving.
We have had a mild winter so far. Cold, but the snow has missed us. They have been getting more north and south of us. We have been lucky.
Waiting for spring.

New World Order

This is a story that needs to be out and known.
It has been reported in the Main Stream Media, but it seems few are listening.

On October 14 Lord Christopher Monckton, former science adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, gave a scathing refutation of the concept of man-caused global warming at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota. He closed his presentation with a stern warning to Americans that President Obama will be signing a new climate change treaty (likely to be known as the Copenhagen Treaty) at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in early December and that this treaty will “impose a communist world government on the world.”

Read the article, Research it some more, and pass this on.
I do not know how to stop this.
It is very bad.

Family History

Cindy, Mom and I went on an adventure this summer, to Neebish Island. We poked around some and found the grave site of an ancestor. On the side of a road, inside some Lilac bushes. We talked about stuff GrandMa had said. And Mom got the idea to put a book together. Another lady had put some together, Another branch of the same family line, and some from a book by another author.

And she put this together.
She has done this before with other parts of the family line, and some dead ends much sooner.
This goes way back and gives a little insight to how folks got here from there.

This also has some old photos and personal stories of several folks that came before.

It was a good day out, and we all learned some. But Mom was inspired to go a bit farther, so we all have this book and a more complete history of the family.

The whole book has more photos than I am going to post here. All the begets and begats, charts following back to the 1600s.
I enjoy the history, and I think she had fun doing it.
