Friday Update

Well, after singlehandedly devastating the mouse population, Miss Poosey has taken to fattening up the two offspring and man are they growing! Mayhem was out strolling about the other day so I relocated both of them to a box under my desk to keep them from getting crushed under foot. A nice warm box with a cotton shirt in it to help keep them warm.

I found some links to making salves and supplies for doing so. Here they are:


There are a ton of sources out there, just do a online search.
If you are serious about making your own herbal medicines, I encourage you to stock up now, as I believe that these sources may be a target of the FDA soon!
Big Brother Health care only!

I encourage everyone to build your survival bibles now, as once the Czar begins to protect us, all of this free source of info known as the internet will probably be filtered for our own benefit, eliminating that which would allow us to self medicate.

I am currently using the public release of windows 7 on 2 different PC’s. On my Athlon XP 3000 based machine it runs pretty well, but has crashed several times after coming out of hibernation. I updated my video driver as recommended (nVidia) and shut off the hibernation feature. It hasn’t crashed since.

Overall, I like the operating system. BUT, I will not pay $320.00 for it. Anything less than Ultimate version would be unsatisfying at this point, but I will upgrade my video card and run a version of Linux called Elive Compiz. It is every bit as cool as Windows 7, perhaps even cooler if you have the hardware to support it’s features, and the price is right – Free!

So Microsoft, drop your price and I might stay with you, WINE (Windows Emulator) is working pretty well with most of my windows software, and I am tired of shoveling my cash your way, especially when I run multiple computers at home.

uBuntu has several flavors that will boot up and run from a CD drive. No installation necessary. This would give you a chance to try it out without having to install it on your PC. Another version of Linux that will let you run a live version from a CD is Knoppix.

By running a live version on CD, used with a USB thumb drive for data storage, you can surf the net without leaving any tracks at all on a PC. How’s that for steps to security?

Firefox has a nice add-on called Scribefire. It is a blogging editor and is pretty cool. If you use Firefox, you should check it out. Don’t use Firefox? Why not? My only problem with it is the way it saves some webpage titles.

Keep your weapons loaded and prep like there is no tomorrow, tptb are trying to make sure that there a fewer of them available for you, both tomorrows and weapons.

Ok, maybe he is down for maintenence but it is funny that his last post title that I see is titled:

Now I hear that the Fed's (not sure which branch) are giving Wretha grief.
Are they shutting us down piecemeal?
Are they starting to silence the First Amendment by shutting down the bloggers?

I am sleeping with one eye open tonight!

Ed Freeman

Sent to me by my big Sis.

This is such an amazing story . . .

You’re a 19 year old kid. You’re critically wounded, and dying in the jungle in the Ia Drang Valley , 11-14-1965, LZ X-ray, Vietnam . Your infantry unit is outnumbered 8–1, and the enemy fire is so intense, from 100 or 200 yards away, that your own Infantry Commander has ordered the Medi-Vac helicopters to stop coming in.

You’re lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns, and you know you’re not getting out. Your family is half way around the world—12,000 miles away—and you’ll never see them again. As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day.

Then, over the machine gun noise, you faintly hear that sound of helicopter, and you look up to see an un-armed Huey, but it doesn't seem real, because no Medi-Vac markings are on it.

Ed Freeman is coming for you. He’s not Medi-Vac, so it’s not his job, but he’s flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire, after the Medi-Vacs were ordered not to come.

He’s coming anyway.

And he drops it in, and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 2 or 3 of you on board. Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire, to the doctors and nurses. And, he kept coming back…13 more times…and took about 30 of you and your buddies out, who would never have gotten out.

Medal of Honor Recipient, Ed Freeman, died Wednesday, August 20, 2008 at the age of 80, in Boise, ID… May God rest his soul.

Medal of Honor Winner

Ed Freeman!

Since the Media didn't give him the coverage he deserves send this to every red blooded American you know.


Harry L. Furrey, GS-09, DAF Construction Representative 307-773-3539 307-220-0552

Thank you Ed Freeman, for your selfless actions throughout your life, as I imagine there were many!

In the 2002 film We Were Soldiers, which depicted the Battle of Ia Drang, Freeman was portrayed by Mark McCracken. This one of my favorite Vietnam War movies!

9 Dead and Climbing

Nine dead bodies, found in various locations, have devastated the familys left behind.

The blood-thirsty creature who has single handedly wrought this slaughter remains at large.

Miss Poosey, the Mousinator.

Yes, since I posted the pictures here on the 15th of her first two victims, the Mousinator has dispatched 7 more of the rodent community that has sought to illegally immigrate into our home. Drawn by the promises of easy meals they have come to meet their death from the ultimate killing machine.

The Mousinator

I have found their migration route: under the kitchen range where the eletrical outlet comes thru the wall, a hole tunneled thru the sheetrock to facilitate their illegal activities. Until I pull the range out and fix the hole, the Mousinator will remain on guard in our home!

P3 Kill-A-Watt

P3 Kill A Watt Electricity Load Meter and Monitor


If any of you have been wanting one of these, this is the best price I have seen anywhere. You can monitor your power usage to determine Inverter load if you are designing a alternative energy system, also you will be able to see where you need to find different sources for high energy usage appliances and electronics. At this price you could pick up several and concurrently monitor multiple energy consumption points.

This will help you plan for solar panels, generator KWs, surge voltages and battery capacity.

Home Invasion

Last night 2 intruders gained access to my home, with intentions of taking items which were important to my family’s survival. It occurred sometime between midnight and 4:00 am.

Thanks to an alert family member, both perpetrators were dispatched before they could complete their crime and escape. These two foul creatures will never defile anyone’s abode again!

Since we practice the 3 S’s, I quietly disposed of their stiffening bodies before leaving for work this morning.

Thanks to Miss Poosey’s vigilance, these two critters will never try to help themselves to our food again!

I hereby promote Miss Poosey from Guard Cat to Mouser Extraordinaire!

Thieving Bastards

I'm am not sure exactly what is driving the price of gas upwards but it was $2.71 a gallon as I went to work today. God Damn thieving bastards! I heard a rumor that it was the commodity traders at it again. I hope they wear rope neckties soon!

Rising fuel prices is a good way to stall any hope of an economic recovery. Too bad the assholes in the whitehouse can't see that. If they want to micromanage something it should be that. Take it away from the speculators and let true demand determine the price, not the unadulterated Wall Street greed that oozes forth like pus from a festering wound.
