household & prepping link collection

I have been saving various bookmarked pages for future reference. Today I share my handy-around-the-house collection with links and brief introductions. I am not promising there is any sense or unity to this collection beyond what is in my title. I want them for reference and thought you might also. – Ted – Easy Camping Meals For Fun and Survival There are so many great meals that you can make while camping while not using a lot of different pots and pans or complicated ingredients. Before we get into specific meals, let’s go over a few campfire meal basics that will make your life easier when out in the bush. Top 10 Best Undersink Reverse Osmosis Water Filter Systems in […]

dummies wearing smart watches

Livestrong.com and Cardiologist Promote Apple Watch Despite Known Cardiac Risks From Electromagnetic Radiation and WiFi   By B.N. Frank Telecom companies have been warning shareholders for many years that they may eventually be held liable for their devices and transmitters.  Insurance companies won’t cover their devices or transmitters because it’s too risky.  Regardless, many health organizations still promote wearable tech as beneficial even though boatloads of research has determined that exposure to Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) aka “Electrosmog”  (including WiFi) is biologically harmful.  Symptoms and severity from exposure varies and includes cardiac issues (see 1, 2, 3, 4). A quick search on Livestrong.com indicates they regularly promote wearable tech.  More nonsense was posted recently which includes a recommendation from a […]

tripping Big Brother

I suspect few of us are capable of escaping the All Seeing Eye but that does not mean we should give up and make their job easy. Popular Big Tech is one in the same as Big Brother. I, rather obviously, am not hunkered down in a foxhole waiting my turn to be executed. But I do avoid their blatant abuses of our reasonable expectation to privacy. Say NO! to Googoo, Faceplant, Appoo, Microflab, Windoze, Internet Exploder, Geemail, Outlook, … well, all the big guys. They did not get big by accident. Dirty money MADE them. Say YES to GAB, VOAT, VOAT subset QRV, MINDS, LINUX [Mint], PROTON MAIL, and, for now, I endorse Thunderbird as your e-mail software. […]

California adds insult to injury

I am not going to run down the details of Pacific Gas & Electricity’s rolling blackouts. There is a distinct funny smell to the whole darn thing.  Suffice it for this article that hundreds of thousands of super-green, socialist Californians are having their electricity shut off for days, even weeks at a time… after being convinced to convert to total pollution-elsewhere technology. No charging your smart car in your own garage. Piling on to make this awful situation for California’s middle class, rural and suburban populations worse, the state oaf-fish-als are starting to hamper amateur radio’s ability to provide communications when other modes are unavailable – the ham radio mission for over 100 years. INFOWARS.com posted the following article: California […]

social vs anti-social media

Once upone a time there was a starry-eyed geek employed by the sold-out Silicon-Valley giants. He became so disgusted with what they were doing to us that he bolted and formed a group designed as the antidote. Of course the Silicon Giants pulled out all the stops to shut them down. The battle between David and Goliath has been, and continues to be epic. That scrappy little sucker is hanging in there.. and more. Gab.com is the new kid in town, completely opposite of the old. Turns out there are a growing number of us walking away from those who sell our private information for fun and profit and into the embrace of one who not only respects our privacy, […]

Illegal Levels of Radiation Emitted by Popular Cellphones

Before I turn you over to Doctor Mercola’s article, I want to point out we are talking about micro-waves. The frequencies transmitted by these devices are the same ones that cook food in common kitchen microwave ovens. That these radio frequency waves cook flesh, meat, fat and organic matter should at the very least be given some thought by those who can choose to be close, far, frequent or rare in their exposure to them. The lackadaisical perspective by users, manufacturers and regulators relates directly to the spikes in human cancers in places intensly exposed. The chart above if from a Danish study. In our country bad news about cell phones is discouraged. Not talked about is the usage […]

The End Is Near

… and the sky is falling … and all sorts of bad, nasty stuff is coming tomorrow. I deliberately over-state the potential, but it may not be a joking matter. While it might be a nothing-burger, learning a bit about Carrington Events, Faraday Cages and having more than a day’s worth of food and water might be healthy. The astrophysicists are real scientists who still practice genuine science. I’m betting there is SOMETHING to this solar storm. There most likely will be SOME EFFECT. Prepare accordingly. – Ted   A Large Solar Storm Will Hit Earth On July 31 Or August 1 At The Same Time That The “Black Supermoon” Happens July 28, 2019 by Michael Snyder FacebookTwitterSubscribe   […]

young bodies adapt to cell phone use

They are changing our culture, behavior and thinking. Apparently growing, forming young bodies also physically adapt to the head-down position. While fear of growing bone spurs won’t deter kids from their use it is one more proof of their excessive fixation with their stupid phones. Young People Are Growing Bone Spur “Horns” From Smartphone Use Mac Slavo SHTFplan.com   Australian researchers have found odd bone spurs growing out of the skulls of young people. These “horns” are said to be due to the increasing use of smartphones. Since the research was published, unusual formations have captured the attention of Australian media, and have variously been dubbed “head horns” or “phone bones” or “spikes” or “weird bumps.” Each is a […]

stupidly embracing smart stuff

Dystopian novels that my generation read as teenagers and young adults are coming to pass. We are in the middle of everything the authors of 1984, Brave New World, Atlas Shrugged, Animal Farm, Lord of the Flies and many more saw coming. The Rutherford Institute’s newsletter is regularly thoughtful and insightful. I include one of them below that discusses the surveilance state our society has embraced and continues to further empower. John Whitehead’s essay is much shorter than the novels I mention above, informed by what actually IS in effect and strengthened by the obvious near-term trajectory that is so very much as the dystopian authors predicted. – Ted Click the title link below to read the article with numerous […]

Bitterroot emergency comms

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, once again I address the subject of what do you do when your phones and Internet stop working? Wonder and Nothing useful Are the two answers most people will default to. I know I am unusual in planning and preparing for such a scenario. I not only think of ME and mine, but want others to have value in their radios as well. So I produce an attractive, sturdy laminated card that they just might keep with their two-way radio enabling them to find value in it when no other means of mid-range communication is available. I hereby introduce GEN III of my cards. I will distribute as widely as […]

Alexa’s dark side

. While obvious to many, there is apparently a significant audience who not only allow this lying, spying device into their homes, they pay good money for them and use instead of thinking and taking advantage of readily available honest research. This great cartoon nails both Alexa and their support of the unbelieveable official story where three World Trade Center towers collapsed straight down in rapid succession one day from airliners crashing into two of them. Just ask DuckDuckGo if Alexa is biased. You will get an eyefull. https://duckduckgo.com/?q=is+alexa+biased&t=lm&ia=web I admit it is masterful manipulation of the average mind. Nice work, globalists. You found a soft spot and exploited the heck out of it. This might be as good as […]

computer back-oops

I had a couple careers in computer operations and office automation. I know more than a little about preserving electronic data. Therefore I have multiple back-ups of my important files. I don’t do it as often as I should, but intend to at least monthly. I save files from my most active computer onto two USB backup drives and onto my backup computer. If you are counting, that is four copies of every file I deem worth preserving. With my mind working on a couple other things I copied my most treasured files onto one of the backup drives. Well, actually that is what I meant to do. Since this is a process I have been doing FOREVER I really […]

friends don’t let friends Google anything

The Internet, the World Wide Web is powerful beyond anything we could have imagined twenty years ago.The wealth of human knowledge available to our fingertips is a complete miracle. Yet the majority of researchers allow Google to censor, limit, guide and control their access. Don’t Do That! There are several search engines who do not censor your searches, and who do not track you in order to profit from your private informatin. My favorite: DuckDuckGo Does none of that evil stuff to our beautiful Internet.

social media in transition

Internet addictionThe mega-platforms grew from nothing to huge as if they were sponsored by incredibly powerful big money guys… or were cosmically fortunate. Your choice. Faceplant, Googoo, Twiddle-dee, Tubular and others offered human interaction without messy humans involved for FREE! Either you pay for the product or you ARE the product Their blatant censorship and phalanxes of hired shills is finally costing them market share. There are hints of awareness rising up that heretofore had been frighteningly absent. In case you are fed up but have not found alternatives, I will share three with you. I walked away from well over a thousand “friends” and haven’t missed the content edited by Palo Alto new-agers one little bit. I now get […]
