Title: Positive News
Post by: R.R. Book on September 22, 2017, 07:24:49 PM
In order to balance out all of the gloom and doom beginning to accumulate in the media and in real life, how about a new thread in which we post reminders to ourselves and one another:

*that there is still good in the world

*that the Bad Guys don't win in the end

*that Heaven has not forgotten us

*that we are ascending as a species

*that there is a larger purpose, and this is only one chapter

*that there is still humor to be found

You get the idea...

Happy autumn everyone :)

Remembering to be thankful...

Today I'm thankful for an ice cream outing with the kids, starting a hope chest for grandchildren, fresh-smelling laundry hung outdoors to dry, a batch of washed eggs, blooming sunchokes, stroganoff for supper, hazelnut candles, pumpkins and mums, and for your presence in my life. :)

I found this online album of Appalachian-style Thanksgiving hymns, all instrumental with no vocals, that costs nothing and can be continuously looped if desired, for an upbeat autumn mood in the house...while we still have electrical power that is :)

Anyone who's ever been locked up for any length of time will probably tell you that the main thing to keeping your sanity is books... Company helps and dreaming about better times, but there's only so much talking and imagining one can manage. Perhaps a book while there's light, then talking/dreaming when there's not enough of it.
I see this pic with so little to read and am reminded of the importance of my own library. You can survive the limited space of your body only if you give your mind enough space to wander...

Title: Re: Masada
Post by: Socrates on October 08, 2017, 10:20:25 PM
So, Masada is in the middle of the Negev desert and it takes hours by car just to get there.
But somehow, the Jews there stayed upon their mountain top for 10 whole years while defending themselves against the Romans.
Forget the ending... the fact that they were able to survive in such a location for 10 years is friggin' amazing. And it suggests much more is possible than is generally believed to be so.

Apparently the people in Masada had an elaborate system in place to catch every drop of rainwater when it (finally) did fall [i.e. even in the Negev]. I'm sure we're talking humanure and all that...
10 years, on top of a mountain... I offers survivors hope, i think.

(I climbed Masada 2 times myself. One time i jogged up the entire mountain and it still took me more than an hour to get there. And to think how much less accessible it must've been 2000 years ago...)
Title: Re: Positive News
Post by: MadMax on October 09, 2017, 03:29:43 AM
As I recall it took the Roman 10th Legion the best part of a  year  to build the siege wall to the top before they were able to capture the fortress to end the first Jewish war (the second one in 133 AD was much worse)..

To this day the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) still takes it recruits to Masada for their “swearing in ceremony” due do to the locations historical significance 2000 years later ..

As an interesting historical note, the first Jewish war started in 67AD when five Roman Legions entered the Galilee to put down the revolt, it ended in 73 AD when Masada was conquered. In 70 AD the city of Jerusalem was destroyed after a siege of five months (April --> August) 70 AD:

67AD ---> 31/2 years--->70 AD<-->3/12 Years-->73AD (7 years total interesting number!)

The Roman Legions were sent forth from Rome by Emperor Nero, why is this important ??

Well, Nero would have died in the interim in 68 A.D., and these legions would have come under the rule of a whole string of successors, one of whom laid siege to Jerusalem in 70 A.D.

Here you go:


http://penelope.uchicago.edu/~grout/encyclopaedia_romana/gladiators/nero.html

Nero as the Antichrist

If the Greek spelling of Nero Caesar (Neron Kaisar) is transliterated into Hebrew (nrwn qsr), the numerical equivalent is 666—although it should be remembered that this number was not represented as a figure but as letters of the alphabet or written in full. In other words, the "number of the beast" was not expressed as "666" (indeed, discrete Arabic numerals would not be invented for another five hundred years) but by the phrase hexakosioi hexekonta hex or the numerical values of the Greek letters themselves, chi (600), xi (60), and stigma (6).

Regardless of the number, Nero is the only name that can account for both 666 and 616, which is the most compelling argument that he, and not some other person, such as Caligula or Domitian, was intended. Too, for the number to have any significance for a reader of the first century AD, it would have to refer to a contemporary historical figure "for it is the number of a man." That other personages can be considered is a quirk of letter numeration. While it is a simple matter to determine the value of a word or phrase by adding the numerical equivalent of its letters, it is impossible to reverse the process with any certainty. The number alone is not sufficient to determine the corresponding word; rather, there needs to be additional information.

PS:
 
 Whys is it important that Nero is the sixth emperor of the Roman Empire??

The point: Where does the local run-off go to?  Requirement: not onto or into the shelter.

Post by: R.R. Book on October 12, 2017, 05:58:19 AM
I see what you're saying.  Here's how it works at our place:

House partly built into gently sloping hillside causes garage to be mostly underground.  There is hillside rising above the house behind it, and hillside dropping below the house in front of it.  So garage could theoretically flood from water cascading downhill from behind the house. 

Solutions:

1. Garage was designed with 6" wide slightly sunken gravel sump/drainage channel on the three sides that are partly or completely underground.

2. The foundation is the Collier Foundation Systems pre-cast Superior Walls, which keeps the house watertight: http://superiorwallspa.com/

3. Also, when house was first built, English ivy was thickly planted on the upper hillside to anchor the rocks and soil in place, helping to drink up excess water before it reaches the house.  Ivy was never watered past the first summer, encouraging a tangled mass of roots to dive deeply into the hillside.  A long hedgerow of water-hogging snowball hydrangeas was also planted at the rear foundation to further soak up water, and a swale was designed to direct runoff toward a gully in the woods. :)

The funniest thing about this one is the guy smoking a pipe in a fallout shelter!  Imagine the stench of cigar smoke permeating every square inch (not many anyway) of the thing.  OMG.

We just put up with it, back in the day. I remember Mom telling me what year she and dad quit smoking.
I calculated I was eight, then. I remember needing eye and nose drops as a toddler...

Missed that one!   LOL and har dee har har.  Yeah, imagine anyone getting all dolled up just to cook dinner and all that goes with it.  Most of us would be miserable after about 2 seconds.  I remember as a teenager wearing those idiotic high heels and thinking it was cool.   Boy, was I dumb.

I agree Ilinda - I think that photo looks contrived! :D

Positive message possible from such contrivance: a potentially very ugly part of life can be made bearable with loving attention to detail?  Real-life example:  some photos of WWII-era British bunkers depict tea being served on china :)

That reminds me of this creepy movie from 1960, which I stayed up late one night when I was young to watch with my Dad.  Do you remember Village of the Damned, about these hybrid half-human, half-ET children?

Gathering to say we’re thankful
Friends, friends in every way
Make each and every day
Our Thanksgiving Day

    Over the river, and through the wood,
    To Grandfather's house we go;
    the horse knows the way to carry the sleigh
    through the white and drifted snow.

    Over the river, and through the wood,
    to Grandfather's house away!
    We would not stop for doll or top,
    for 'tis Thanksgiving Day.

    Over the river, and through the wood—
    oh, how the wind does blow!
    It stings the toes and bites the nose
    as over the ground we go.

    Over the river, and through the wood—
    and straight through the barnyard gate,
    We seem to go extremely slow,
    it is so hard to wait!

    Over the river, and through the wood—
    When Grandmother sees us come,
    She will say, "O, dear, the children are here,
    bring a pie for everyone."

    Over the river, and through the wood—
    now Grandmother's cap I spy!
    Hurrah for the fun! Is the pudding done?
    Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!

Self-taught rocket scientist plans to launch over ghost town

https://apnews.com/9d8e5e8e9245412ab80f5a1f58d885b7/Self-taught-rocket-scientist-plans-to-launch-over-ghost-town

The countdown to launch creeps closer and there’s still plenty for self-taught rocket scientist “Mad” Mike Hughes to do: Last-second modifications to his vessel. Pick up his flight suit. Leave enough food for his four cats — just in case anything happens.

His first test of the rocket will also be the launch date — Saturday , when he straps into his homemade contraption and attempts to hurtle over the ghost town of Amboy, California. He will travel about a mile at a speed of roughly 500 mph.

“I don’t believe in science,” said Hughes, whose main sponsor for the rocket is Research Flat Earth. “I know about aerodynamics and fluid dynamics and how things move through the air, about the certain size of rocket nozzles, and thrust. But that’s not science, that’s just a formula. There’s no difference between science and science fiction.”

Max.

(Abridged)

IT is the mellow season
When gold enchantment lies
On stream and road and woodland,
To gladden soul's surmise.
The little old grey homesteads
Are quiet as can be,
Among their stone-fenced orchards
And meadows by the sea.

Here lived the men who gave us
The purpose that holds fast,
The dream that nerves endeavor,
The glory that shall last.
Here strong as pines in winter
And free as ripening corn,
Our faith in fair ideals —
Our fathers' faiths —was born.

Here shone through simple living,
With pride in word and deed,
And consciences of granite,
The old New England breed.
With souls assayed by hardship,
Illumined, self-possessed,
Strongly they lived, and left us
Their passion for the best.

Thank we the Blood that bred us,
Clear fibre and clean strain —
The Truth which straightly sighted
Lets no one swerve again.
And may almighty Goodness
Give us the will to be
As sweet as upland pastures,
And strong as wind at sea.

My best guess is prankster.  I was driving through Park Hills, MO about 10 years ago and noticed a sign in front of a beauty shop--the usual marquee-type sign-- and someone had rearranged the letters, which I'll not reprint here verbatim, but the sign had originally read:  PERMS  INSIDE, and someone unbeknownst to the owners, had taken the "S" from PERMS and placed it in front. 

It's a knee-jerk reaction to laugh, but betcha the owners were plenty angry when they found it.

Title: Re: Positive News / Solving the advanced Christmas puzzle on p. 30
Post by: R.R. Book on December 19, 2017, 09:09:02 AM
OK, making only very slight headway on the advanced Christmas puzzle from page 30 of this thread (and I suspect Jim can solve this blindfolded with one hand tied behind his back  :) ):

(https://winthropdc.files.wordpress.com/2017/01/candy_maths_puzzle.jpg?w=680&h=526)

Lines 1 and 2 in general appear to be calculus logarithmic integral functions ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logarithmic_integral_function ).

The "ln" portion of line 2 denotes a "natural logarithm" ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logarithm )

Line 2 appears more specifically to be a "logarithmic differentiation equation" ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logarithmic_differentiation ) which can be re-written like this, bringing the "C" into the puzzle that we need in order to begin solving line 3:
(https://wikimedia.org/api/rest_v1/media/math/render/svg/ffcaf5c8b14b232de9ff79e9ae0960ea4966bd10)

We know the right side of the rewritten equation = 0, because regardless of what a candy cane represents numerically, one candy cane minus one candy cane = 0.  So xln(x)-x+C=0The other side of the equation, ʃ ln(x)dx also=0. Oops - forgot the candy cane and snow flake superscripts attached to ʃ in line 2 of the puzzle  ::)

Line 1 appears to be a polylogarithm ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polylogarithm ), and scrolling down the Wiki page, it looks a little suspiciously like a computer algebra systems dilogarithm due to the imaginary number i2.  If following the rule for imaginary numbers which is i2=-1, then the exponent at the end of line 1, which reads "4 + i2" solves to read "4 + -1" or simply 3.

OK, I've solved two small pieces of the puzzle, and am in way over my head, not having studied calculus!  Will let someone else take a stab at it, if desired!  :)

OK, making only very slight headway on the advanced Christmas puzzle from page 30 of this thread

Here is the result for the second equation:

The left hand side is zero, whatever sugar-cane is.

On the right side, the integral of ln(x) is known to be  xln(x) -x.

So, we have
  0 = xln(x) -x
  0 = x(ln(x) -1)
  0 = ln(x) -1
  1 = ln(x)
  e = x
So, sugar-cane is e, which is 2.71828...  (irrational)
Title: Re: Positive News
Post by: Jimfarmer on December 19, 2017, 12:08:12 PM
Here is the result for the first equation.

On the right side:
   i^2 is -1,  so the exponent (4+i^2) is 3.
  Infinite sum of  1/n^2  is known to be (exactly) 2.
  2^3 = 8
  4!  is 4x3x2x1 = 24
  So, on the right side, we have  8/24 = 1/3.

On the left side:
  Flake + Flake + Flake = 3F

Hence, the equation becomes:
  3F = 1/3
  F = 1/9

OK, so it looks as if we need to solve line 4 of the puzzle before we can solve line 3.

If Candy Cane = 2.71828 (courtesy of Jim)

and if Snow Flake = 1/9 = .1111

and if (2.71828 + wine glass).1111 = ?

then .302 + wine glass = ?

and if we use the commutative property to rearrange that we get:
wine glass + .302 = ?

And if we subtract .302 from both sides we isolate wine glass and get:
wine glass = ?-.302

Jim, does this look correct for line 4?

Coming in late here, and using Jim's Snowflake= 0.1111 and Candy Cane= 2.71828, then Equation # 4 might be:
2.71828 + 0.1111 + Wine Glass = ?     rearranged to:
Wine Glass= -2.82938

Don't we need to count the "?" as a variable in its own right, as if it were like an "x"?

Wine Glass= -2.82938
And then Equation 3 might be:
2(-2.82938)=(2.71828) (23C17)Flake + Flake  which gives us
-5.65876=2.71828 (23C17)0.2222 which gives us
-2.081742867=23C170.2222

Now here's where I'm not sure which way to go.  It's been decades since I had differential and integral calculus, and as many decades since I've had organic chemistry or biochemistry, so I'm thinking...wondering....could we be talking about an allotrope of Carbon of some kind?

Think about how C70 refers to fullerene, a sort of cage-like grouping of Carbon atoms, and then there's C70 which is another version of Carbon called buckminsterfullerene, and last but not least is C540 which is something that is said to exist but I'm not sure what form of carbon it is.

So, these numbers, if we're talking atomic structure or some chemistry/chemical phenomenon, would the numbers refer to bond angles?  Or some other arcane entity?

Or, were these four equations written by someone who has had a bit too much holiday spirit?  LOL

I think we could, but when I see "?", I interpret it as telling the problem solver we/you don't know what this is, so what is it?

But since candy cane, snowflake and wine glass have become part of the equation, I think the question mark could also.  So now we have two different paths we can take.....spending precious time.......while the PX system is bearing down on us.....LOL LOL LOL

I don't think so.

Here is what I get for equation 3, using deduced values for Cane and Flake.

G+G = e(23C17)^(1/9+1/9)

Interpreting  23C17  as the number of combinations of 23 things taken 17 at a time, which is calculated from  23!/(17!(23-17)!), we get the value of 100947  (see https://www.calculatorsoup.com/calculators/discretemathematics/combinations.php)

So now, equation 3 becomes:
2G = 2.71828x100947^0.22222
     = 35.1806
and G = 17.5903

And finally, equation 4 becomes
2.71828 +17.5903/9 = ?
4.67276 = ?

Not a nice round number or a named constant like e or pi, but that is what I got - if no calculation mistakes, and assuming that 23C17 means combinations.

I'm fine accepting "23 things taken 17 at a time", especially if we don't have to revisit this and somehow apply it to the velocity and trajectory of each object in our PX System. LOL

Post by: R.R. Book on January 24, 2018, 06:46:48 AM
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m69isRYTYWc

Last night, Steve Olsen hosted an on-line Town Meeting in which around 120 Px researchers gathered and were invited to vent their stresses, though only a small percentage spoke out.  I thought that was a very positive step, as there is so much coming at us right now.  Some of the participants were Christocentric, and others had acquired a broad spirituality but were on the same page as far as the value of prayer and scripture.

One important comment made was that, in coming into Awareness, we have been exposed to a tremendous number of mind-opening topics, not all of which are necessary to introduce to family and friends.  For example, if we want them to get on board about prepping, we can focus upon that and save the discussions about the Rothchilds, ET's, etc. for another time. 

Another commenter conversely made the point that the very nature of coming into Awareness necessitates an alteration to the mind that opens us to all the truth at once, including every aspect of it (e.g. the Rothchilds), and there is no way for us to filter the conspiracy theories out, because they are part and parcel of truth-seeking.

The idea was then put forward that one way to deal with the depression from all our knowledge of what is wrong with the world, and what is about to occur, is to surrender completely to God or our Higher Power, trusting that everything is being worked out for our greatest good.  We can only ever see a sliver of the larger picture of what is taking place cosmically.

Steve says that a large part of the fear comes from witnessing the physical evidence of the coming Tribulation.  He questions whether we may be helping to create the fear due to the very act of observing what is taking place.  Others in the chat disagreed that we are responsible for creating the Tribulation, noting that the refusal of many to listen to the evidence is akin to darkness fleeing from the Light.  A comment was made that the fear is created by PTB in naming all of our first-hand observations "conspiracies," and denying us the ability to speak about what we are observing, forcing us to work on a muted basis.

One person said that knowledge of the world inherently produces sorrow.  Steve added that he recently had a moment of feeling completely alone and of freezing up, unable to move forward.  A female moderator in the chat commented that there are energies being physically directed at us right now that are heightening our fears and harming our overall well-being.  She advises that we have the power to refuse to succumb to the dark energy and instead to choose how we will feel, and to spread that chosen attitude around.  We can pray for personal peace and others will benefit from it.  We can also play music with a positive message and choose not to listen to darker songs.

Steve advises beginning by eating right, especially food that is alive and not processed.  We can ignore our cultural indoctrination to suppress our negative emotions, choosing instead to acknowledge them and give them a voice, before releasing them, which is an on-going process and not a once-then-done occurrence.  Negative emotions cause us to be self-focused, and as we continuously acknowledge and release the fear and frustration, we can turn our attention to thinking of the needs of others, which will bring us out of ourselves.  In caring for others though, we must continue to care for ourselves, and often minute attention to our own needs, such as drinking more water, can make a big difference in de-stressing.  We need to nurture ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually.

Dealing with strain on relationships: 
We can broach our Awareness with individual family members and friends, and then take careful note as to which ones are receptive and not waste time chatting up our knowledge with those who aren't receptive.  Focus upon the ones who are.  It was noted that there are examples of this in the Gospels, in which Christ would often take his disciples aside and confide important details to them that were not for the masses to know.  Another person in the discussion pointed out that it often happens that when we share our Awareness with someone, that person may eventually become even more Aware than we are and can be a great source of strength.

Those who are openly functioning as leaders in the Px movement, creating videos and so forth, can expect to be attacked by anonymous members of the public, who may or may not be connected to PTB.  Expect infiltrators to try to divide our community.  That means that we're successfully getting the truth out, and that the Dark feels threatened by our Light.  One videographer advises not to get hung up on viewership numbers - that needs to be left to a Higher Power.  Leaders may be attacked on-line, but can exercise the right to block people who are uncivil.  Those who are most offensive need the most prayer.  We will end up on PTB's radar by getting out the truth to the public, and there may be instances requiring small acts of civil disobedience, such as publishing scientific images and information that may be classified. 

One person in the chat said that this reality is only a fraction of what exists, and science and spirituality are part of a puzzle that was never intended to be torn apart, and must be worked back together.

The flu is currently affecting members of the Px community, and we need to be especially kind to ourselves right now, getting plenty of rest and eating well. 

Adding my own thoughts:
1. We can make prepping less stressful on our families and still secure their help by making it fun.  For example, we might take a family member out for a latte when securing supplies, in exchange for help loading and unloading the car. 

2. Don't go into tremendous debt, but if there is a large necessary prepping project that seems out of reach right now, we can weigh the benefits and drawbacks of securing an easy line of credit to get it done while time still permits, reaping the peace of mind of crossing that item off the list.  We normally don't use credit in our house, but took out a project loan from Home Depot to install security doors and were glad that we got right to work on it, because the order was placed last August and is just now being completed almost half a year later.  It does take time to order special supplies, and time may be a more valuable commodity than funds right now, so consider credit in strict moderation - maybe what can be repaid in a year or less.  Don't make the mistake, however, of expecting that Px will come by a particular date and wipe large debts clean by fiat.

3. Keep track of your forward progress on a master list that you can check off, and give thanks each day for even small accomplishments.  I only had a small amount of $ left after Christmas which had to last until January, but was thankful to be able to buy 12 bottles of alcohol with $12, which meant another full year of being able to wash dishes safely without a dishwasher, adding a few drops to the dish water each day.

Thoughts? :)

Good idea to not borrow more money that can repaid in a year at most. 

The only problem I've had with Steve Olsen is his having stated that all aliens or et's are benevolent.  But maybe he's just a bit more optimistic than others.

Then there's the suggestion "to surrender completely to God or our Higher Power, trusting that everything is being worked out for our greatest good".   Many, whether believers in God or not, adhere to the old adage, "God helps those who help themselves", and I cannot imagine kicking back and feeling I'll just surrender and trust that all will work out well.  In the face of danger, humans and other animals begin analyzing and appraising the situation, then decide on a course of action.

Still I'm uplifted to hear that Olsen has begun to go "more public" with this issue and I salute him, and those who attended or participated.

Hi Ilinda,

Yes, my father always used to say that adage to me, and I'm pretty sure that Steve was speaking in context of everyone being on the same page of prepping.  Even with all your skills, you have expressed nervousness at times about what we've been viewing, and I think that open meeting last night was preaching to the choir of preppers whose nerves are becoming fried.  That would be consistent with the conversation about how to broach the topic with family - in order to get them to safety.   

Steve has also been run through the wringer recently with the son who was in a coma with brain damage around the holidays, so he personally has been, and probably still is, in a situation that requires surrendering a bit.

In this video, Marshall advises that in addition to regular prepping, we set aside funds to spend some recreational time with our significant others while circumstances still permit.

Whatever you take into the bunker is what you take into the bunker.  You can take beans and bullets, and that's fine.  But you're also going to take your memories and your relationships and where you're at with the people in your life.  This is a time to focus on love, because love is the most powerful force for getting us through it.

https://archive.org/details/Groundhog.Day.1993.BrRip.720p.x264.YIFY

It's a tradition in our family to watch this dvd every year.  Without publishing spoilers, here are a few themes from the film:

*Growing in awareness of the needs of those all around us, some of which may be staring us in the face although we may not realize it at the moment

*Being glad, in retrospect, that we didn't always get exactly what we wanted at the moment, because we got something better later

*Learning to regard the poor as extended family and treating them with love and respect

*Growing in awareness of a Higher Power that intends our greatest good and may use ironic means to help us achieve it

*Realizing that instead of killing time we could be learning a complex new skill and using it to improve the lives of everyone around us

*Allowing the more difficult experiences of life to polish and soften our rough edges, rather than making us tough and bitter~

Happy Groundhog Day! :)

If you haven't seen this, it's a wonderful film portraying life in primitive Irish maritime culture, with skills and traditions being passed down to the younger generation.  What the children are able to accomplish in an emergency with only the resources of their immediate surroundings, without the help of adults, is awe inspiring.  :)

Around 37 minutes into this video, Dave Dobbs discusses the potentially destructive effect of near Px bodies on the human psyche.  He says that we need to be very grounded at this time.  One of the best signs that we are well-centered and grounded in our being, according to Dobbs, is the experience of sadness.  He advises to be fully present for that emotion, rather than attempting to medicate it away, as the ability to feel sad means that we are a complete human. 

Rather than assuming that sadness means we are on the brink of an intractable abyss, we can know that it is a necessary phase in the cycle of healing and rebirth.  Instead of avoiding the experience, we need to proceed through it as if it were a door.  Medicating it means sitting forever at the door of that experience and never traversing it to the other side.  The same goes for anger, loneliness, and all seemingly negative emotions. 

We need not be afraid of these strong negative feelings.  We can draw ourselves back into the present moment by asking, "What am I doing right now?" to redirect our energy in a positive way, without attempting to erase the negative emotions from our experience.

We can also be aware of harmful entities that may be feeding upon us at such times (Reptilians, etc.), and focus our attention back upon them, which Dobbs says they hate because it forces them to examine themselves in the mirror which we have turned back at them.  They will depart from us as a result.

Clean freak gorilla walks on two legs; Can't stand dirty hands…  ;D

Michael Stern, curator of primates and small mammals, says workers had to install a fire hose over a mud puddle in the yard. The nearly 500-pound, 6-foot-tall primate crosses it like a tight rope to avoid getting dirty. He says it's "pretty unusual" for gorillas to walk around upright. In the wild, Western lowland gorillas like Louis might do it for a few seconds to reach food or wade into swamps.

Title: Re: Positive News : Healing from attacks by troubled individuals and groups
Post by: R.R. Book on March 17, 2018, 10:59:26 AM
Given the numerous both open and anonymous attacks on members of the Px research community, it seems timely to broach a discussion on how to protect ourselves from personality disordered individuals and institutions, as well as on how we can find healing in the wake of harm done by them.

With the Internet having been up and running more than a couple of decades now, most of us probably understand that we are likely to encounter a sampling of all types of human behavior in making any kind of social or public use of our computers.  Many of us are careful to use an alias, though as we've gotten to know one another better in Town Hall for example, some of us have let our guard down and become "real" with each other, with little personal risk involved. 

Some of our leaders, however, have put their own names and reputations on the line, and paid a price in the process, surely earning a reward down the road for the many of us whom they've helped to awaken with their freely shared knowledge.  Many of us, ourselves, are leaders in our own communities even when not online, and may personally know the stresses of interfacing with personality disordered individuals.  Here is a table estimating the statistical prevalence in society, and the numbers may be lower than actually exist, as some of these personality types can remain hidden.

(https://psychnews.psychiatryonline.org/na101/home/literatum/publisher/app/journals/content/pn/2004/pn.2004.39.issue-17/pn.39.17.0390012/production/images/medium/eve_personalitydisorders.jpeg)
https://psychnews.psychiatryonline.org/doi/full/10.1176/pn.39.17.0390012

In all humility, I acknowledge that we may all possess to a lesser extent a degree of narcissism for example, which may or may not be healthy for us and for those around us.  Am guessing that those of us in Awareness may lean toward the healthy end of the spectrum, simply because we are very tuned-in to something larger than ourselves.  Also as Marshall has explained, some of the Aware may have been bullied or neglected in the past, and may be experiencing more of the same in the present.

A member of the Px awareness community who may be less well-known is a woman who is a powerful teacher about how to handle narcissistic attacks, and how to be healed from one afterward, as they can be debilitating in many ways.  She comes from a deeply religious background, but her teachings transcend sectarianism and can be put into practice by anyone.  Most importantly, she herself has personally experienced the many faces of narcissistic abuse, and can speak about it on a personal, rather than strictly clinical, level.  The fact that she is able to laugh about much of it, in retrospect, is testament to her level of healing in the present time.

Her Youtube channel is Niches of Narcissism.  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbnkubKpYoqCMi7wtfEuZFg

As mentioned before, she is also aware of Px and does also post Px informational videos.  I will state up-front that though I do not agree with all of her opinions on that subject, I consider her a valuable teacher otherwise, having learned much from her myself.

More soon.

Quote
...The narcissistic attack will be your greatest triumph for your greatest good.

Quote
It's an invaluable treasure.

Quote
...Sometimes you may be in a literal battle for your life

Factors contributing to a narcissism epidemic:

*upbringing
*personal choices
*natural proclivities (I'm assuming that she is including genetics here)
*influence of dark entities in some, but not all, cases
*conditions on earth in the End Times

"7 Red Flags That You've Never Heard About"
Note: Some of her comments are her own personal theological opinions.

First, three stages of development in which Narcissism becomes the established pattern of habit:

Childhood fraught with violent abuse or its opposite: excessive undeserved praise; limited parenting, and lack of spiritual teaching especially including empathy.

Emancipated adolescence guided by peer pressure to fit into an unrealistic image for popularity and self-worth; early drug or alcohol experimentation or other addictive behavior; lack of positive parenting to guide the teen into adult responsibility, which should be achieved by the time the young person is 16; consistent disrespect for parents and authority; entertainment choices that consistently reinforce these character flaws; expectation of instant gratification and lack of age-appropriate self-control..

Young adulthood marked by signs of entrenched narcissism, such as either coolness or raging, selfishness, manipulation, and addictions possibly leading to jail, rehab or death.  The cooler end of the spectrum may instead function by stealth and be more difficult to detect.

The Seven Red Flags of a Hardened Adult Narcissist:

1. Drug or alcohol abuse

2. Promiscuity

3. "Adult" entertainment

4. Fantasies, delusions

5. Need for instant gratification

6. Rebelliousness toward appropriate authority

7. Emotional extremes

Notes on "Why the Narcissist Explodes at Nothing"

Narcissists have learned to live in a fantasy world from an early age
     *Overt Fantasizing: Obsession with a figure in the media
     *Covert Fantasizing: Unrealistic expectations of others and the world
                                   Idealized image of self
     *Exacerbated by absorption with media
     *Reinforced by addictions to drugs, alcohol, sex
     *Since "self" controls the fantasy, others are merely objects in the narrative
     *Reality interrupts their inner world
     *The needs of others intrude upon the fantasy
     *Possible co-morbidity with other mental illness classifications, autism, ADHD
     *Possible involvement with dark entities, knowingly or unknowingly

The Fantasy World Revolves Around:
     *Power
     *Lust
     *Greed
     *Attention
     *Romance
     *Pride

Narcissistic Responses to Interruption of the Fantasy
     *Explosion / raging
     *Silent treatment / withdrawl
     *Verbal denial of the truth even if cognizant of it
     *Word salad / random speech
     *Leaving
     *Devaluation of others
     *Inflexibility

Other Areas of Low Functioning for the Narcissist
     *Keeping promises
     *Holding down a steady job
     *Staying on a budget
     *Being organized
     *Managing a schedule

The "rude" intrusion of others who are in reality into the fantasy world of the Narcissist is actually very good for him or her, even if the reaction is unpleasant.

Everyone in the fantasy drama is eventually doomed to fail.

The covert narcissist

Regardless of whether a person has been diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder, presenting evidence of more than half of the diagnostic criteria, the person still could be a covert narcissist if you are being abused.

Outsiders may only be aware of the good in that person, but those closer to him or her may be seeing another side of the personality that goes unseen in public.

Deborah turns to religion for how to discern a covert narcissist before the overt abuse begins.  I agree with several of her points, but disagree on a few (I don't believe that Wiccans can be construed to be narcissists, for example, merely due to their religious beliefs).  Most of the list that she derives can be summarized as
types of spiritual selfishness:

*Dishonesty, even about small matters
*Promiscuity under the radar
*Idolatry
*Status-consciousness
*Profaning sacred things
*Power-hungry
*Moodiness
*Lack of humility
*Political correctness expected over speaking truth to power

Reasons why the traditional red flags might not match up:
*You haven't seen the person in a variety of different situations yet
(could be a good, bad, or different situation that brings out the narcissist)

*Parts of his/her personality may be carefully segregated from other parts
(not multiple personality disorder, but having personas for various situations)

*You have not seen him/her fully triggered yet by his/her own unique triggers

*The narcissist may have convinced you and others that you're the problem

Seeing the covert narcissist for what he/she is:
*Trust your first instincts
*Recall scriptural wisdom
*Envision the person in different situations
*Pray and then look for tips of the iceberg
*Don't make excuses for him/her

Quote
Empaths project their own goodness onto the abuser.

Alexa Device Gives Definition Of Chemtrails And It’s Freaking Some People Out

http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/alexa-device-gives-definition-of-chemtrails-and-its-freaking-some-people-out_04122018

Amazon’s Alexa device is back in the spotlight after people began taking notice of the response they got when asking about chemtrails.  The actual response, however, is freaking out the “we buy the official narrative about everything and believe everything the government says” crowd.

Alexa stirred some controversy in the past for her “response” when asked if she worked for the CIA. The device didn’t actually give a response, rather, it just shut down.

What’s even more fascinating, is that the propagandists upset about Alexa giving a correct definition actually made such a big deal about it, that the product will now no longer give you the definition of a “chemtrail.” It’ll instead, tell you what a “contrail” is.

Post by: ilinda on April 15, 2018, 01:33:11 PM
Absolutely hilarious.  Also, it was interesting that the sentence Alexa uttered, supposedly answering the question about lying, seemed to be cut off.  When asked "Alexa, do you lie?", Alexa"  I always try to tell the truth....I would never let you or anyone else..."  Did I misinterpret "let" and it is actually "lie to"?

At anyrate, we now know Alexa will continue to evolve in response to the questions, always trying to stay one step ahead of any "trick questions".

Notice how Alexa never said "I always tell the truth", but said, "I always TRY to tell the truth".  LOL  The only reason Alexa "tries" is because it will tell the truth if the question isn't a loaded one, or if it doesn't touch on certain subjects that TPTW want to remain taboo.

Title: Re: Positive News
Post by: ilinda on April 15, 2018, 01:52:55 PM
For anyone out there who has Alexa or has access to it/one, wouldn't it be cool if people could start having "Alexa parties", in which they go, fully prepared with a long list of questions we'd all like to know, including:
1)  Who murdered Robert Harrington?
2)  Who are the Annunaki?
3) How many individuals were involved in the assassination of John F. Kennedy?
4) What are the names of the men who broke into Martha Mitchell's apartment and who injected her with cancer cells (according to her)?
5) What is the distance, as of this day, of the PX system from Earth?
6) Describe the gravitational wave that some scientists claim is headed toward Earth?
7) Is Earth a slave planet?
8 ) Where is Lemuria, using modern-day geographic terms to describe?
9) Where is Atlantis, using modern-day geographic terms to describe?
10) Do politicians ever lie?
11) Does Alexa allow spying into the homes where it is located?

Anyway, you get the drift.  No doubt people can dream up thousands of questions, some maybe just for test purposes.  After all, we need to understand the credibility of Alexa if we're going to listen.  LOL LOL LOL

Quote
It can be easy to feel pretty down about what we're facing.  I've talked before about how much grief plays into a major realization that reshapes your life.  When you're living your life and the reality shifts significantly, then the life that you had been planning...is lost.  The perceived plan that you had for the way your life was going to go is lost, and you invariably grieve for that.  Try your best to get excited about the new path that we see, as rocky a path as it may be, and unknown.  But also, never forget that every moment that we are living here is precious, and we could have a plane fall on  us tomorrow and never get to feel any of the effects of this.  Don't become a victim now of something that hasn't even arrived in full form yet.  Make sure that you're still able to enjoy a part of each and every day, and treasure your family and the things you do with them.  Keep living now, and start taking steps every day, that we might continue living into the future.

Adding a link to the full musical movie 1776, nearly 4 hours long:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBOQvfR1bvs

@ around 1:20:55

In arguing over which delegate should be the one to write the Declaration of Independence, John Adams complains that all the other Continental Congress delegates dislike him and would run their quill pens through whatever he might write.  Roger Sherman also refuses, singing:
Quote
I don't know a participle from a predicate - I am just a simple cobbler from Connecticut.

Thomas Jefferson next refuses, saying he hasn't been home to his wife in 6 months, prompting John Adams to question whether he is a patriot or a lover, to which Jefferson answers "A lover!"

Is that a trait of some black cats?  Our black Hudson is the same way.  He's sort of a behemoth of a guy, but scared of lightening and thunder.  But black Sama-Lama-Ding-Dong isn't afraid of much of anything.  Over the years, most of our cats were not afraid of storms, until Hudson.

Absolutely.  Funny thing is that we've noticed over the years that maybe the attraction of felines to catnip is genetically based, because some cats absolutely go bonkers over it, while others walk past nonchalantly, even if challenged with a smell test.

Just taking a moment to pause and reflect on the mystical time that we're living through right now...

...and on the miracle that we're in this together...

...and on the amazing Beings that have passed our way in space to witness our Ascension...

...and on the tremendous energy that has traveled across time to shine upon us and change us into whatever Grace would have us be.

May we embrace it with no fear.

May you sleep in peace tonight.

Remembering Thanksgivings Past...

The fellas throwing the football outside in crunchy leaves

Family members driving a distance to visit

Finding sofas and beds for everyone

Womenfolk crammed into the warm kitchen together

No such thing as a store-bought pie

No such thing as whipped cream in a spray can

No such thing as the Internet

No such thing as a cell phone

Mama's pilgrim candles on the table

Listening to stories about the ancestors

Laughing about the time my uncle nearly burned down the barn

Breaking out the cards and board games afterward

Elders falling asleep in their chairs after the meal

Snuggling in a big chair with Grandma

The sun going down in the afternoon

May we hold fast to our traditions and bring them into the Aftertime for future generations. :)

Permaculture advocist Joel Salatin (https://s3.amazonaws.com/kajabi-storefronts-production/sites/20878/themes/719020/downloads/Moo5yLZiT03vCfDTq6iw_The_Regenerative_Career_Guide_ebook_.pdf): "By marrying the best of respectful technology with the most primal patterns of animal and plant symbiosis, today's regenerative farmers can do sacred work while being handsomely compensated. It will look nothing like industrial single-species chemical-bathed life-adulterating systems. Healing farms are aesthetically and aromatically sensually romantic. Tapping into the caring portion of the population, these farmers find customer cheerleaders and entrepreneurial opportunity unprecedented in human history.
Lest anyone think this is pie-in-the-sky thinking, I've written 12 books to elucidate these concepts. All of these texts come directly out of my own farming experience at Polyface Farm in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. Visit us if you don't believe it. Every morning I step out into a marvelous physical expression of provision and abundance. To watch the soil build, earthworms multiply, honey bees proliferate, wildlife increase and food and fiber grow healthy and strong soothes the soul and pays rich spiritual and emotional dividends. And I earn a white collar salary. You should try it.”


Listening to Dave Cantenbury rant, i was pleasantly surprised when this bushcrafter and 'survivalist' mentioned that one should know permaculture (https://youtu.be/Je_mEnfKNXU?t=137).
Truly, it appears to be gaining momentum. And that's a good thing.

Pedogenesis is the growing of soil, i.e. as opposed to the mining of it... [as if that were a thing].
It has taken America about a century to mine the soils that were developed in the past couple of millennia (or longer). Thank god for intensive agricultural systems...
It's a yin-and-yang or one-and-zero equation: are you increasing or decreasing that which gives life to all life...?

Permaculture may not be mainstream yet, but it is growing wings and quickly becoming more mature. It may have already reached the point where it is quite clear that if you are not hearing the permaculture message, it is because you are unwilling to hear it, not that you have never heard it...


Life after 'TEOTWAWKI' will either be more-of-the-same or it will be different.
Me, i'm working for it to be different. It's not enough that we survive; we must also move from 'survival' toward 'surtrival', i believe.
Or what are we fighting for?

I reckon that is a superficial reading of the current situation based on obsolete observations.  The old-style Deep State operated like that, or tried to, but the White Hats are now draining the swamp.

From "WWG1WGA: The greatest communications event in history"  dated 23/Nov/18,  at https://operationdisclosure.blogspot.com/2018/11/wwg1wga-greatest-communications-event.html
[start excerpt]
As the American Declaration of Independence asserts, when there is such an iniquitous state of affairs, “it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government.” We are in the midst of exactly such an event, with worldwide consequences. The present US administration — a de facto military government with a civilian veneer to prevent panic — is engaged in a complete replacement of a “failed and corrupt political establishment”. The process is a patient and judicial one, so as to minimise the risk of violent civil conflict.

As I wrote back in November, what is transpiring is a second American Revolution, if not a global “War of Independence” from a psychopathic criminal culture.
[end excerpt]

Now, with regard to governments in general, both primitive societies on Earth and advanced societies in higher densities have a council of some sort that debates situations and makes binding decisions.  Those who refuse to cooperate are deported.

Sharing a very old family recipe for holiday tea rings:

4 c flour
1 c butter or margarine

Using pastry cutter, cut butter into flour in large mixing bowl.

Then either add one package of dry-activated yeast directly into the large bowl, or if it's the kind that needs to be moistened, stir package into 1/4 c warm water (around 105 degrees F) in another small bowl.

Next in a saucepan on the stove pour 3/4 c milk if you've got the moistened-type of yeast in the small separate bowl, or pour 1 c milk instead if you've placed dry-activated yeast in the large bowl. 

Into this liquid stir 1/2 c sugar and 1/4 tsp. salt.  Heat just to boiling to break the lactose bonds in the milk and turn off the burner.  Place a thermometer into the liquid and wait til the temperature cools to either 115 degrees F for dry-activated yeast or 105 degrees F for moistened yeast.

While this is cooling, set 2 small bowls side-by-side.  Break open 3 eggs one at a time, allowing the whites to spill into one of the bowls while you toss each yolk back and forth between the 2 broken shells a few times to break them away from the remaining whites that didn't fall away on their own.  Conserve those separated yolks in the other small bowl and beat them lightly with a fork.  The separated whites can be refrigerated until cooked and eaten separately, so as not to waste them.

When the saucepan of milk cools to the correct temperature, stir the eggs into it (and yeast if you used the moistened kind) and dump the whole thing onto the large mixing bowl of flour and butter.  Stir until dough is a satiny ball, adding a little extra flour if it's too sticky to handle, but not so much extra flour that the lump becomes stiff.  It should be very soft and pliable.

Cover with damp tea towel and set aside in a warm location to rise one hour.

After an hour, separate dough into 3 balls, and roll each one out in a flat oval shape, about 12 x 16 inches in size. Brush with melted butter or margarine.  Rub buttered surfaces with sugar (white, raw or brown) and cinnamon, and sprinkle if desired with raisins or chopped dates, or anything else you enjoy. Roll each oval up beginning at the edge furthest from you, forming a log shape and then joining the  ends together to make a ring.  Press ends together to seal. 

Bake on air-cushioned cookie sheets in 350o F oven until lightly browned, about 30 minutes. 

While they're baking, stir half a cup of melted butter into a package of powdered sugar, and add a little milk to spreadable consistency, beating with a fork until icing is smooth and satiny.  Brush cakes with icing, and dot with several halved marascino cherries, pinning each with a toothpick.  Place on festive platter or wrap carefully in plastic wrap to place in freezer or ship to a distant loved one.  Children love to help deliver these to neighbors and shut-ins, as well.

Below is an image from the web that looks very similar:

A very positive news story:

An international tribunal convened in London this year to investigate and expose international pedophilia rings.  The tribunal explains that not only are children kidnapped and sold into sex slavery, but that they are being bred into the networks, never having known a day in their young lives in which they were not victimized. 

The tribunal further is aware that babies are being terrorized and sacrificed in Satanic rituals in which the elite are the primary participants, and estimate that the average life-span of children in the networks is two years, as they are killed before being old enough to speak and testify as to what is happening.  Children only live longer by becoming active as leaders in the networks.  Once the children are killed, their organs are then harvested and sold in yet another crime network.

Additional Tribunal gatherings are scheduled for Washington, the Hague and Rome.

Wishing Everyone that celebrates the Christmas Season, a Very Merry Christmas. Wishing Everyone else Happy Holidays in whatever ways you choose to celebrate, or not. Me personally, I celebrate the Winter Solstice but also honor the Christmas/Yule traditions, as well as respect those that choose not to. Each to their own, live, let live, love thy neighbor and treat others how you would want to be treated. Yes, that is an unorthodox mix of various traditions. However, this is how I choose to live my life and do my best to live up to those values.

So..., Wishing Everyone Love, Peace and Prosperity wherever you may be in this world of ours.

Thank you Solani, and same to your family! 

The Winter Solstice has such a powerful effect on humans, plants, animals, that it's amazing that it's not more widely celebrated.  I had a dream once that peace came to the earth when every day of the calendar year became a sacred celebration of something - meaning that we were all honoring one another's traditions.  I guess it's difficult to have war if every day is a holiday!  :)

Here's a Little Bear Solstice celebration, in which the needs of wildlife are remembered:

Isn't William Casey the one who was going to go public with a lot of "stuff", and suddenly he was "dying" in a hospital.  He did die quickly and supposedly of a stroke, and how convenient that was.

(Natural News) How does that saying go again? There are only two things certain in life: death and taxes. Perhaps a little morbid to think about, but the IRS definitely doesn’t think so.

It will take more than your (potential) death to save you from your obligation to pay your taxes. Yes, you’ve read that right: the IRS has made contingency plans to collect its due even after a nuclear war.

 The Internal Revenue Manual, first published in 1982 and regularly updated, states unequivocally that if a nuclear bomb is dropped, “operations will be concentrated on collecting the taxes which will produce the greater revenue yield.”

Imagine a survivor who has a backbone, and encounters an IRS tax collecter, entering his/her property, demanding payment, in spite of no mail service, no banks functioning, no running water, sick and/or dying family members, etc.   

Now imagine that survivor's response to said IRS agent.  I can imagine many different responses, and none of them would see that IRS agent faring too well.

Am reposting part of JimFarmer's tutorial on working with benign beings to raise the vibration of one's entire neighborhood prior to SHTF, which he feels will not be experienced by positive individuals whose ascension is in-progress.

Those more comfortable with traditional beings such as angels may simply substitute that specific language for his own words:

Quote
Request assistance from higher-density benign entities.
*  Invite all benign entities interested in the welfare of the neighbors to participate.
*  For each subsection of the neighborhood that is easy for you to encompass in your imagination:
-  Repeat three times:
=  Imagine a vortex of energy arising from deep underground, passing thru the surface area, and continuing up to the ionosphere.
>  The vortex scours and flushes negativity from everything (esp. people) as it rises.
=  The vortex dumps the negativity into a portal to the Sun, where it is recycled.
=  The vortex then reverses direction of rotation and receives a load of positivity thru the portal to the Sun.
=  The vortex then passes down thru the atmosphere, the surface, and deep into the Earth.
>  On the way down, the vortex spreads and inserts positivity into everything (esp. people) as it descends.
*  Thank all participating entities.

Maybe instead of fidgeting about all of this snow and 21o F highs, we could just sit back and enjoy it...

How many readers had to memorize this poem, almost a century old now, in school?

(https://hollyheir.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/sleighridetwilight.jpg)

Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know;
His house is in the village though.
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near,
Between the woods and frozen lake,
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

These woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

~Robert Frost

Watching this fellow carve a bunker and pool out of limestone totally blew me away -

It is hard not to admire someone with that much stick-to-it-iveness".  I would wonder though about heavy rains.  Did he build that in an area with rare rains?  In this area, a heavy rain would half fill that thing in several hours.
Title: Re: Positive News
Post by: R.R. Book on March 26, 2019, 03:51:00 AM
I wondered the same thing, and can only guess that he lives in a fairly arid location.  Maybe the limestone would absorb the water gradually?  Maybe the plants around the edge would also absorb water? 

This same guy goes all over his region and builds these things, so maybe he lives in more than one spot and can move from place to place?

We lack narrative on this one!

Much appreciation to WSO and Marfoogle News for helping to set a positive tone in the Truth Community, by establishing a firm rule on their channels of not permitting slander of other members of the Community. 

That tone-setting reflects a natural gift for leadership that will be much needed in the world that we hope to help build together.

Matt Rogers of Sky Watchers, Michael of Evolutionary Energy Arts, Dave Dobbs of Planet X Hunter, and Steve Shaman of Sky Watch Media News, among others, have also set positive tones, even when the news itself has been dire.  In avoiding tearing others down, these leaders have built their own credibility by focusing entirely upon their work, allowing others to take them seriously.

Many kudos to our positive community leadership!

AFRICA
American Woman And Her Driver Freed From Kidnappers, Ugandan Police Say

April 7, 20195:26 PM ET
Francesca Paris

Ugandan police announced on Sunday that they have rescued an American woman and her driver after the two were kidnapped last week while on safari.

The Uganda Police Force said on Twitter that it had worked with security agencies to rescue the 35-year-old California woman and her Ugandan tour guide. Both are in "good health," according to police.

The Ugandan government and U.S. media outlets have identified the woman as Kimberly Sue Endicott. The Ugandan government identified the driver as Jean Paul Mirenge.

Four men allegedly abducted the pair from their vehicle at gunpoint last Tuesday during an evening game drive at Queen Elizabeth National Park in southwestern Uganda and demanded $500,000 in ransom, police said. Four other tourists were left "abandoned and unharmed," according to the Uganda Media Centre, the government's communications center.

Police did not offer further details about how the two were freed, and it's not clear if a ransom was paid. Citing the safari company with which they were traveling, The New York Times reported on Sunday that a ransom had in fact been paid.

Same here.  In fact, I do notice I don't have the same upper body strength I had 30 or 40 years ago!  LOL  Heck, I didn't have much then, so you can imagine it now.

And I'm not knocking the guy in the video, but I did notice what appeared to be grade lumber, such as 2X8's or 2X10's, or something similar.  Now, it's possible he did all that with his hand tools, but I think some of that stuff came from a lumber yard.  That's OK, because the guy really did some really hard work, and deserves credit.  Lots of credit.  He is showing how a person can indeed build a comfy cabin, all by himself.

I admit that I couldn't help comparing his work with that of Dick Proenneke, who made just about everything from scratch on-site, except for iron/steel tool heads (which he made the handles for himself), metal cookware, books, and a few grocery and clothing supplies that were occasionally dropped to him by helicopter.

Ahhh, yes.  Both guys are amazing.

Dick Proenneke, though, has shown that even with a presumably small set of tools, one could create a shelter and make it comfortable, while relying very little on the outside world.   I need to watch his video(s)....

Thousands Diagnosed With Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Rush To Claim Large Cash Settlements
Steve Mitchell Esq - April 15, 2019

Thousands of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma victims just found out they may be entitled to receive a large cash settlement if they have ever used Monsanto Roundup weed killer. Monsanto is knowingly putting millions of lives at risk for cancer. The money will cover the damages Monsanto knowingly caused.

Roundup weed killer made by Monsanto allegedly have a dangerous ingredient that can increase your chance of developing Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma by 41%. This is one of the largest ongoing risks that people are taking regularly.

Millions of consumers have purchased Monsanto’s Roundup since the early 1970’s without knowing the risks associated with use. Unfortunately, many may have been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma after being exposed to the dangerous chemicals used in Roundup.

Quick Version: If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, you may be entitled to a large cash settlement. Victims are urged to click here and apply now.

In August 2018, Monsanto was ordered to pay $290 Million for failing to warn Dewayne Johnson that its weed killer Roundup might cause cancer. Johnson's doctors testified he is unlikely to live past 2020.

But the company has yet to help the people who may be in a life-threatening situation caused by Roundup. If you were diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, you may qualify for a large cash settlement.

Don't miss your window of opportunity.

Roundup weed killer attorneys

LEGAL ACTION UPDATE:
Three separate California juries have awarded one couple $2 Billion, one man $289 million and another man $80 million in their Roundup Weed Killer cases. Sadly, they both developed non-Hodgkin’s cancer after years of Roundup use.

The Ruth Law Team is investigating cases involving Roundup Weed Killer and the diagnosis of non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL). The lawsuits allege Monsanto, the agricultural company producing Roundup, knew about the risk for cancer yet failed to warn consumers. Unfortunately, this is something we see all too often in product liability cases.

What is Roundup Weed Killer?
Developed in 1970, Roundup Weed Killer is the most widely used herbicide in the world. The main ingredient in the weed killer made is glyphosate. In 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) published research indicating glyphosate is “probably carcinogenic to humans,” meaning it probably causes cancer. Of course, Monsanto denies these claims that Roundup causes cancer. Further, Roundup is not the only weed killer containing glyphosate. Accord, Honcho, Pondmaster, Protocol, Rascal, Roundup Pro and Roundup Ultra also use glyphosate as its main

Celebrating the Dads and Granddads all weekend...

Remembering my own father and grandfathers:

Fishing together at the lake, and glad he didn't get flustered when I cast my hook and line into a tree 

Searching for lost golf balls in the woods and being rewarded with a grape soda

Discussing books on the phone after I moved away

Watching storms come in on the prairie and counting the distance between lightning and thunder

Listening to him tell stories and jokes in the tornado cellar

Using an ink pen to draw mustaches together on authority figures and politicians in the Sunday papers

A pack of chewing gum always in his shirt pocket

His pipe with a wonderful familiar smell

Basement full of half-baked inventions

Feeding every cat in the neighborhood

Making stuffed animals "talk" like Donald Duck

An amazing library that I never got tired of exploring

Good at fixing things

Steeled my nerves when walking me down the aisle with everyone staring

Staying up til midnight on weekends to watch old movies together

Loved Easter egg hunts with difficult hiding places

Lied about catching the Easter bunny and being kicked in the shins

Stayed up all night on Christmas Eve every year drinking coffee with the menfolk, because they were too excited to go to sleep

Sometimes bought me complicated toys meant mostly for him

Would pretend to get mad if losing board and card games

Allowed us kids to have a sip of wine or brandy on New Year's Eve

Graciously climbed trees to clean up all the tissue paper when friends decorated the yard during the night before my 18th birthday

Would get me out of school to take me on trips to historic places

Taught me how to build an igloo one winter

Was a master gardener

Have a wonderful weekend fellas!

Hi ilinda, yes we will keep a good thought.
Monsanto still has a lot of power...?
But hopefully this will end someday... This trial that happened, I will look into it more, 2016.  Heard about it when it happened, not sure what affect it had on the company. I hope it was the beginning of the end for Monsanto.   Differing opinions on the trial, as to the legal validty but IMHO they got it right, declaring Monsanto Guilty Of Crimes Against The Planet And Humanity.

By Eradicating Ecocide
Global Research, October 18, 2016

Verdict: Monsanto Guilty Of Crimes Against The Planet And Humanity

Judge Françoise Tulkens: “civil society has to help International Law to develop and include ecocide” (Monsanto Tribunal Day 3, The Hague)

– and indeed civil society is helping. Not only did the Monsanto Tribunal open up the space for testimony to be heard, but it also demonstrated that complex issues, such as significant harm arising from corporate ecocide, can be addressed through the rule of law. Ecocide is not yet a crime, but as Judge Tulkens declared, “civil society has to help International Law to develop and include ecocide.”

And Judge Tulkens is a judge who speaks informedly – her legal background includes professorship specialising in the fields of general criminal law, comparative and European criminal law, juvenile justice and human rights protection systems before and tenureship as a European Court of Human Rights Judge. Tulkens is also the author of many publications in the areas of human rights and criminal law.

Was it a Kangaroo court, as Monsanto claimed? (See Guardian story here) or was it the first steps towards ecological justice? You decide…

Homesteading Humor?

This series goes beyond the typical "getting started with homesteading" series to having grown so close to the land that you begin to learn its mysteries.

This Appalachian farmer loves to discover, and sometimes perhaps invent, all the bizarre stories on and about his property, telling his tales with a charming Virginia lilt.  All the while going about his chores on the homestead, in the background of the narrative rather than the foreground.

Amazon Tribe Wins Lawsuit Against Big Oil, Saving Millions Of Acres Of Rainforest

The Amazon Rainforest is well known across the world for being the largest and most dense area of woodland in the world. Spanning across nine countries, the Amazon is home to millions of different animal and plant species, as well as harboring some for the world's last remaining indigenous groups. The Waorani people of Pastaza are an indigenous tribe from the Ecuadorian Amazon and have lived in the Rainforest for many generations. However, their Home came under threat from a large oil company - they didn't take it lightly.

Legal Win
After a long legal battle with a number of organizations, the Waorani people successfully protected half a million acres of their ancestral territory in the Amazon rainforest from being mined for oil drilling by huge oil corporations. The auctioning off of Waorani lands to the oil companies was suspended indefinitely by a three-judge panel of the Pastaza Provincial Court. The panel simply trashed the consultation process the Ecuadorian government had undertaken with the tribe in 2012, which rendered the attempt at land purchase null and void.

This win for the indigenous tribe has now set an invaluable legal precedent for other indigenous nations across the Ecuadorian Amazon. After accepting a Waorani bid for court protection to stop an oil bidding process, the court also halted the potential auctioning off of 16 oil blocks that cover over 7 million acres of indigenous territory.

Government Corruption
While there is no evidence, some people believe that the Ecuadorian government may be accepting bribes in some roundabout way. The land in question is meant to be protected under Ecuador’s constitution that establishes the inalienable, unseizable and indivisible rights of indigenous people to maintain possession of their ancestral lands and obtain their free adjudication.

Furthermore, the constitution also states that there is a need for prior consultation on any plans to exploit the underground resources, given the probable environmental and cultural impacts on tribal communities. The government claim they did do this in 2012, however, the tribe alleges that the agreement they came to was based upon fraudulent practices in favor of the oil companies and the government was favoring their bottom line over the people the actually still live on this valuable land. Due to this, the judges ordered the Ecuadorian government to conduct a new consultation, applying standards set by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights before anything else is agreed regarding the exploitation of the natural resources below the ground.

After a long legal battle with a number of organizations, the Waorani people successfully protected half a million acres of their ancestral territory in the Amazon rainforest from being mined for oil drilling by huge oil corporations. The auctioning off of Waorani lands to the oil companies was suspended indefinitely by a three-judge panel of the Pastaza Provincial Court.

And here we thought that the WSJ report on Trump wanting to buy Greenland was a joke!  ;D

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-08-18/its-not-joke-trump-confirms-he-looking-strategicaly-interesting-greenland

As we reported last week, the Wall Street Journal said that Trump "listened with interest" as his advisers discussed Greenland’s strategic location and vast natural resources, directing them to study the possibility of acquiring the island for the US. Not even the fact that Greenland is an autonomous country with over 56,000 people and its own local government, appeared to faze Trump, and while it relies on Denmark for two thirds of its budget, Copenhagen couldn’t sell it even if it wanted to.

Not exactly.

Greenland | History, Geography, & Culture | Britannica.com
https://www.britannica.com/place/Greenland
Aug 7, 2019 - Although Greenland remains a part of the Kingdom of Denmark, the island's home-rule government is responsible for most domestic affairs.

From "ZetaTalk Chat Q&A for August 31, 2019"  updated 17/Aug/19, at http://www.zetatalk.com/ning/31ag2019.htm
[start excerpts]
[Q]  Greenland is strategically important, militarily.   It also has a good deal of higher ground. ... What else might Trump have in mind?  ... Historically, countries have acquired territory not only through military conquest but also financial deals. Under the 1803 Louisiana Purchase, the US acquired about 827,000 sq miles (2.1m sq km) of land from France for $15m (£12.3m). In 1867, the US reached a deal with Russia to purchase Alaska for $7.2m. ... the US later purchased the Danish West Indies in 1917 and renamed them the US Virgin Islands. ... President Donald Trump has reportedly expressed strong interest in buying the island of Greenland from Denmark for its resources and geopolitical significance. It's unclear how exactly the U.S. would go about buying the largest island in the world after failed American attempts to purchase Greenland in 1867 and 1946. ... Trump is set to visit Denmark next month.  Trump reportedly got the idea after hearing that Denmark was having financial problems because of the subsidies it pays to Greenland.  ... The U.S. already has an airbase in Greenland ...
...
[A]  There are dozens of reasons Trump would want Greenland to be a US territory, among them the quantity of precious fresh water that will come available after the Pole Shift and a strategic position in the Arctic. Greenland would be a second foothold in the Arctic, the first being Alaska. Denmark struggles to pay the welfare bill for Greenland’s 56,000 inhabitants, so making a deal, as Trump likes to tout, would be financial. He would sway both Denmark and Greenland with US greenbacks. The US already has an air base there, and both Denmark and the US are NATO members, so objections should be few.

Just had to share a little anecdote about today:

I was wishing that I could come up with the funds to do something thoughtful for someone who really could use a kindness this week, but just couldn't see how I could stretch the budget to do anything impulsive just now.  But the thought didn't go away.

To my great amazement, throughout the day today I kept finding money that I'd apparently mislaid here and there, even though I'm not that scatterbrained, nor a really terrible housekeeper!  ::)

It served as a reminder to me Who really owns everything in the Universe, and that we don't even need to ask for things we desire, if our hearts are in the right place.

Trump was a laughingstock over his comments. The country of Denmark did not like it at all.  Then Trump picked a fight with Denmark leaders and then a state visit between the two countries was cancelled. I don't care what kind of concocted story anyone wants to make up, the fact is, Greenland was never up for sale and they do not want to be a US territory.
- Barb Townsend

Greenland is an autonomous territory within the Kingdom of Denmark. Though physiographically a part of the continent of North America, Greenland has been politically and culturally associated with Europe (specifically Norway and Denmark, the colonial powers, as well as the nearby island of Iceland) for more than a millennium.

From "ZetaTalk Chat Q&A for August 31, 2019"  updated 17/Aug/19, at http://www.zetatalk.com/ning/31ag2019.htm
[start excerpts]
[Q]  Greenland is strategically important, militarily.   It also has a good deal of higher ground. ... What else might Trump have in mind?  ... Historically, countries have acquired territory not only through military conquest but also financial deals. Under the 1803 Louisiana Purchase, the US acquired about 827,000 sq miles (2.1m sq km) of land from France for $15m (£12.3m). In 1867, the US reached a deal with Russia to purchase Alaska for $7.2m. ... the US later purchased the Danish West Indies in 1917 and renamed them the US Virgin Islands. ... President Donald Trump has reportedly expressed strong interest in buying the island of Greenland from Denmark for its resources and geopolitical significance. It's unclear how exactly the U.S. would go about buying the largest island in the world after failed American attempts to purchase Greenland in 1867 and 1946. ... Trump is set to visit Denmark next month.  Trump reportedly got the idea after hearing that Denmark was having financial problems because of the subsidies it pays to Greenland.  ... The U.S. already has an airbase in Greenland ...
...
[A]  There are dozens of reasons Trump would want Greenland to be a US territory, among them the quantity of precious fresh water that will come available after the Pole Shift and a strategic position in the Arctic. Greenland would be a second foothold in the Arctic, the first being Alaska. Denmark struggles to pay the welfare bill for Greenland’s 56,000 inhabitants, so making a deal, as Trump likes to tout, would be financial. He would sway both Denmark and Greenland with US greenbacks. The US already has an air base there, and both Denmark and the US are NATO members, so objections should be few.

PS Jimfarmer, just to be a bit more respectful here, as a PS to my blunt opinion (It is an informed opinion) but I just want to say there are lots of people who feel differently than I do on a lot of geopolitical events and matters.
All I can say is we all need to search for the truth and that means various sources of information. But facts are facts... People need to figure out  what is a true source of information. Just because it is on a website or some speaker on the radio does not mean what is being presented is true information.
Everything we see online, read in a paper, hear from people or hear on the radio or see on a news channel, that is DATA. Data is data it is not all necessarily true. True information is what we need, so we need to being up our educational level all of us and dig for truth.
That said, we are all human beings basically on the same side, trying to survive.

I recently saw this sign posted in an Amish place of business:

Your Soul is
Everyone you love
and
Everyone who loves you.
