being 17 again for an hour

Years before I entered high school, my dad began teaching me the game he LOVED and excelled at. I entered a high school of 3,000 baby boomers (and graduated) as a distinctly small boy of 5’2″, 98 pounds, but was the 3rd best tennis player on the team all three of my high school years. I was the only one who could beat the coach because the better players followed the muscle-bound pin-head’s instructions while I was not so predictable. Tennis is a fast-paced, thinking, strategy game with an athletic skill set thrown in. I enjoyed the game then, but only found tennis partners once or twice after that. The last five years has found me teaching quite a few […]

cancer treatment that works

UK Man Quits Chemo and Beats Cancer with Cannabis Activist Post The US government has finally acknowledged the anticancer properties of cannabis. At this point it’s pretty difficult to ignore the evidence, including countless testimonials of people who cured their cancer with cannabis extracts. The latest example is a young man whose attempts at traditional cancer treatments of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy failed to get rid of his stage-three bowel cancer. Cannabis oil was a last ditch effort, and it worked. As reported by the Stoke Sentinel: CANCER survivor David Hibbitt is celebrating being given the all-clear by getting married Friday, April 17 – and claims his recovery is down to taking cannabis oil. The 33-year-old will tie the knot […]

The Eisenhower Decision Matrix

The Art of Manliness website has a great article on priority setting and coherently organizing your life. This is not a weak area for me now, but it is nice for me to review and certainly worth sharing here. I am not going to post the article; just a short overview and link. As usual, if you are intrigued, click the link. The website in general and this article in particular are worth investigation. What is important is seldom urgent and what is urgent is seldom important The Eisenhower Decision Matrix: How to Distinguish Between Urgent and Important Tasks and Make Real Progress in Your Life The Difference Between Urgent and Important Urgent means that a task requires immediate attention.

Vaccination’s Unflattering Track Record Secret

    Arjun Walia     Note: This is Part VI in a series of articles adapted from the second Children’s Health Defense eBook: Conflicts of Interest Undermine Children’s Health. The first eBook, The Sickest Generation: The Facts Behind the Children’s Health Crisis and Why It Needs to End, described how children’s health began to worsen dramatically in the late 1980s following fateful changes in the childhood vaccine schedule.]   A concerted and “heavy-handed” effort is under way to censor information that contradicts the oversimplified sound bites put forth by public health agencies and the media about vaccines. However, while brazen, in-your-face censorship—and attacks on health freedom—have ratcheted up to an unprecedented degree,  officialdom’s wish to keep vaccination’s unflattering track record out of the […]

Vaccines: who are you going to believe?

On the one hand we have the acknowledged experts in drug pushing and vaccines. Theirs is a trillion dollar industry. One might assume they could spend A LOT of money defending it. On the other we have researchers, pediatricians, parents who have seen horrible damage from vaccines… and who, by speaking out, are trying to warn others of the dangers. The dominant side has billions of dollars to work with. They bribe doctors, regulators, politicians and media to portray vaccines in a gorgeous humanitarian, healthful light. They spend several times as much on lobbying politicians, marketing to consumers, influencing social media and bribing doctors as they do on research. They hire platoons of youngsters eager to earn a supra-minimum-wage […]

car accident is SHTF

I picked a piece out of a prepper website some time ago. Unfortunately I cannot remember or track down where it came from. Here it is without the credits and links I normally give. ————————————– 8. Drive Better For those who think preppers focus too much on far-fetched scenarios, this one is for you: a car accident is a SHTF scenario. We don’t often think about them that way, but we should. Not only are cars exceptionally dangerous, but even if you come away from an accident unscathed, the financial effects can be serious, assuming your insurance isn’t up to scruff. Of course, collisions can happen to even the best drivers, but chances are, you are not among the best drivers. […]

prescription head bangers

As prescription mind altering drug use becomes increasingly prevalent, I am among those who get to witness cause and effects. It does not take a particularly astute observer to know there is something wrong here. While alternatives to blow-your-mind drugs may not be as convenient as a handy-dandy little pill, they may well be worth the extra effort. I will let the following linked article excerpts speak for themselves. By all means go to the links for the full story. – Ted ———————————————————— Why do psychiatric drugs have withdrawal syndromes? By Monica Cassani Dr. Joanna Moncrieff, psychiatrist & senior lecturer, University College London: In the course of my work with those coming off psych meds I’ve learned that there are […]

crusty old brains

With few exceptions, muffler bearing wrenches and lumber stretchers come to mind, tools have both suitable and unsuitable applications. As one saying goes, “If your only tool is a hammer, every job looks like a nail”. The converse of that is even more common where the wrench or whatever else is at hand becomes the hammer you need at the moment. The typical seventy-year-old brain is like that, another tool with good and poor uses. While there are significant variations, the old guys have seen a lot of successes and failures, learning from most of them what works in the long run contrasted with what definitely does not. On the other hand, our minds and bodies are more brittle. That […]

cannabis collection

I have bookmarked several articles related to cannabis and the shady legal misdeeds surrounding and nearby the topic. The politicians renamed it “marijuana” to enable criminalization of a product in widespread medicinal use… back in the bad-old-days when major media was the only media. The pressure is on as two-thirds of us want the bad laws repealed. You and I need to keep the pressure on. Step 1 is sharing information and knowledge. I do it here. You should be doing it somewhere – even just sharing links to this page is better than quietly waiting for common sense to infect the swamp. 5 Fascinating Facts About CBD You Need to Know CBD, a naturally-occurring compound, possesses tremendous therapeutic value […]

letting go

Parents, grandparents, siblings and good friends often enable destructive bahavior. Letting go is quite difficult, but more often than not is the right answer. The Declaration of Independence jumped into my head: …a long train of abuses and usurpations… We forgive, cover-for, assist, fret, lose sleep and so-on while they flit in and out of acceptable behavior. It is a show I watched from ringside a generation ago, though then I missed darn near every clue while I struggled to make my business feed and house us all. I am one row back today, but able to play reruns in the face of similar behaviors. Most likely, there was nothing I could do then to change the trajectory. I’m pretty […]

take a step back

A touch of the philosophical is good for the brain. I share this here so I may come back and ponder it from time to time. So far I keep up with the thoughts until the last few lines. I think I need to work it over until I either understand or reject that last bit. The link, by the way, takes you to one of the next-generation social media platforms that have evolved in response to the dark-forces takeover and evil application of the more popular ones. We were hoping the geeks would recognize the problem and use their specialties in creation of alternatives. They have. Now we just have to migrate to them. – Ted Live in Truth, […]

comfortable solitude

I gave it no thought while living it, but realize today just how unique I was growing up. I spent A LOT of time alone without being “a loner”. I graduated high school standing 5’2, weighing 98 pounds without ever feeling small. I spent countless days wandering the adjacent woods. Occasionally my neighborhood friends would wander with me. Most often it was just me and the dog. I played individual sports, team sports, yet could spend hours alone shooting hoops or pounding tennis balls against the wall. I decided I wanted to pitch for our little league team. I built a wooden strike zone target and spent hours, days, weeks by myself throwing baseballs through each corner of it. Of […]

You want the brain tumor to just go away?

The dreaded, crushing words, “Inoperable brain tumor” are in modern medicine a death sentence. However, people who step outside the AMA box have had startling “good luck”. Before I would let them have their way with radiation treatments that sometimes work when they don’t kill the patient, I would be researching alternatives. My first step is always to use an Internet search engine whose results are not rigged. Unlike the 800-pound-gorilla of websearch and information technology, DuckDuckGo does not censor, slant results, or add every search you make to a dossier with your name on it. So go to DuckDuckGo and ask, “inoperable brain tumor shrinks” or something like that. In the results you already know what mainstream AMA medicine […]

Benefits of MCT Oil

By Joan Clark For decades, athletes have been using a secret weapon to help them increase lean muscle mass and decrease body fat. MCT, or medium chain triglycerides, are a type of fat that you find in palm kernel oil, coconut oil, and numerous dairy products, that your body can quickly absorb. The quick absorption and digestion can provide you with numerous MCT oil benefits that include improved cognition, weight management, and heart health among others. Using MCT oil regularly can be beneficial for those who might be struggling with poor digestive health, low energy, hormonal imbalances, obesity, Alzheimer’s, dementia, slow metabolism, inflammatory conditions, and diabetes. The health benefits gained from consuming MCT oils regularly make it an increasingly popular […]
