Trump’s Best Appointment…Ever!

Trump’s Best Appointment…Ever!

Dick Morris likes the appointment of Scott Pruitt to run the EPA.

Talking about draining the swamp.  The biggest swamp in DC must be the EPA.  Hopefully, Morris is right.

Skip a rope

Hey, it back to being full of shit again.  Time for a bit of moralizing.  But it is true, just the same.

What gives with the Democrats?

Looks like they are going into meltdown mode.  Remember when they said that the GOP was the "party of no"?  According to this, with the Democrats, being the "party of no" is now cool.

Lots of articles like this point to a kind of hysteria overtaking the lefties.  How will this play in Peoria?  Will they make things worse for themselves, or will they implode?

Obligatory, 12.7.16

Two weeks ago, I met the doctor who told me some bad news.  They wanted to do the biopsy right away, but it didn't happen because I didn't bring someone with me.  If the person I had talked with about this meetup would have said "bring somebody", then I would have brought somebody.

Same pattern throughout.  And one wonders why one gets pessimistic.  This has been going on for months.

It will cost a bunch of money anyway.  Maybe that is why they are dragging their feet.

If I am wrong, I would be happy to be corrected.

I am sure I made some mistakes along the way.

But I am trying to do what I can.

Obligatory, 12.6.16

Things are getting to be a bit much.

There's a lot of good things seeming to happen, but on the other hand, nothing is happening.  It is kinda weird.

I need to freeze the clock, somehow.  Not enough time to do all this stuff.

Thought for the day

I remember reading something in one of the many self improvement books that I read.  It may have come from Napoleon Hill's Success Though A Positive Mental Attitude and Dale Carnegie's books.

That something is this:  not even a bad man, like Al Capone, thinks of himself as evil.  If rebuked, he may well get angry with you.

Men prefer the darkness and not the light.  This is a paraphrasing of that something from the Gospel of John.

Here is what prompted this post:

I have had some conversations recently that seem to confirm that things have gotten bad out there.

I'd rather not add to it, but who knows when one does something evil?  For you may not be thinking of it as evil.

Mayor of Realville

Limbaugh likes to say that he is the mayor of Realville.   I think Limbaugh is full of shit.  Therefore, I am running for that office!  Yessiree, Bob. 

Cancer is Realville as it gets.  Try getting cancer when you have no money and all you get is doors slammed in your face.

Way too many people full of shit out there.  Time to cut through the bullshit, if that is even possible.


Limbaugh has to promote his show.  I understand that.  Just don't take this dude literally when he says stuff like this.

He isn't the "doctor of democracy" either.  If anybody is the doctor of democracy, it is guys doing real shit like the guys who worked on the thorium reactors.  All Limbaugh does is talk.  While that is a necessary thing, nobody should mistake it for the people who do the real shit out there.

I can be as full of shit as he is.  Anybody can do that.

Obligatory, 12.4.16

What prompted this post?  Trying to shut down my brokerage account.  I made a note of a phone number.  Maybe they will answer their phones.  Nobody seems to do that anymore.

Spent a lot of time going through emails, and found no news about my account.  But I cannot access it for some reason.   Going to have to be Sherlock holmes here to figure this one out?  I don't have time for that.

So why spend so much time on my water experiment?  Let's just say Murphy's Law keeps on keeping on.  Things keep going wrong, that's all.

Sometimes I need to keep focused, and I don't.

A few ideas being tried out

Prev    Next

Another post in the water sub series in the main off the grid series of posts.

Made a trip to the hardware store and got two things.  Thing #1 was a zero water filter.  It comes with a water tester that will tell you how much stuff is in your tap water.  I was surprised by how much.

The filter does get it down to zero, according to the tester.

I don't think I want to use this on real dirty water.  The instructions say that even tap water with a lot of stuff in it will clog the filter.  These filters ain't cheap, I suspect.

Thing #2 was the equipment needed to set up a distiller apparatus that will go on the stove top.  Now this one has been written up a couple times already.  The thing that makes this different is that I actually decided to do something about it.  I am attempting to run that experiment and get some distilled water out of this thing.  It will need some work in order to set it up.

Another thing I am doing is collecting rainwater.  It is a rainy day out here, and I have actually collected plenty of water.  Funny how that is.  All these years, one gets water from someone else.  Now here I am getting it for myself.  What a concept!
