Joe’s Comment – Well, well, well! The advance of Winter Madness is obvious in me. Haven’t broken down into a blubbering puddle of self pity yet, but given time and shittier weather, who knows?
Cabin Fever has not set in yet – I’m suffering an old wound; a right knee tendon problem – I’ve been immobile for almost two weeks. It’s warm indoors. And there is warm cream tea, too.
Consequently, lots of time to surf the Internet.
Lots of time to think. Low vitamin D3, high remorse…..
I am composing my long list of annual cock-ups, mistakes, broken promises, and failures. I expect the list to be completed before the end of the year!
The corrections and solutions not so much. That will be a carry-over, I reckon.
I’m still staggering around the yard, looking at the projects unfinished and blocking the driveways. The Massey MF30 Industrial tractor has proven useless in the snow. I haven’t found a set of chains yet.
The BobCat Farm Boy still isn’t running. It looks like this –
It is a smaller version of the BobCat 743 I sold earlier this year. The engine is a Kohler M18S gasoline fueled twin cylinder. Mine is in worse shape than the above photo – haven’t been able to start the engine due to no wiring continuity.
And the weather hasn’t been cooperative. The hand wringing an pearl clutching continues unabated.
I am highly allergic to frostbite.
If this weather continues (and what kind of fool would think otherwise?), I expect the Sunday Rant will devolve into long-winded self pitying philosophical rhetoric with no resolution. Much like the proverbial motivational statement –
I can only hope the inspirational words of Edna O’Brien take root in my little pea brain. The Universe is the Great Frontier. Lots of room, spacious. I just wanna fly, as Mr. Sugar Ray insists. Romantic mumbo-jumbo aside, and lyrics be damned. I just wanna fly!:
Quick Dick McDick
Saskatchewan’s ambassador to Canada and the world has been a busy fellow.
His videos are a grass roots view of modern western Canadian farming.
There is an opportunity opening for him to promote himself and his views – his popularity is spreading.
Joe and I wonder what changes will occur.
Using logic (Joe’s specialty), there are three possible outcomes – no change, change for better, change for worse.
Other Canadians who have been subjected to the roller coaster ride of fame include Patrick Moore, Jordan Peterson, Tim Ball (RIP), and many entertainment personalities. Joe argues these men survived the temptations.
Then there are people like Justin Trudeau, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, who have not risen to the challenge in favorable light.
We wish QDMcD all the best. His videos over the years have been true blue – we consider him to be a humanist and a political centrist (a little to the conservative side).
This video expounds on his current and near future events and plans:
When Joe and I read about the article in The Atlantic titled “Let’s Declare a Pandemic Amnesty“, our lovely mouthful of creamy tea shot out our nose.
The bare-assed bald-faced faux-innocent audacity of the progressive left leaves us flummoxed and gobsmacked.
Emily Oster wrote from the heart, from the emotional maelstrom of the progressive mind-beast that brooks no objection and shoulders no responsibility.
Having been caught out in lies, tyrannical mandates exposed, coercion hysterically ramrodded and implemented despite serious constitutional infringements ( we had to, the sky is falling, “the science”), the about face of “forgive and forget” is an apostasy of enormous concern.
As Joe says, what will stop the Chicken Littles from a repeat performance when they are “triggered” by a perceived NEXT TIME?
Either we live under a rule of law or we don’t.
None of this in-and-out, on again off again, we control the switch bull shit.
Do Joe and I forgive our doctor and other health providers, our Canadian medical authorities, the Canadian government officials at any level, the Canadian financial community, the murderous main stream media deceptions and lies, or the businesses who kowtowed to the tyrants and imposed their own version of tyranny?
IN THE CLEAREST LANGUAGE WE CAN SUMMON – NO FUCKING WAY!
We are not alone in our contempt of the abuses of power, the abuses of science, the abuses of logic, and the worst of all, THE ABUSES AGAINST FREE THOUGHT AND EXPRESSION.
In the words of the woke progressive child-abused figurehead and poster girl, Greta Thunberg, “HOW DARE YOU!”
Well, Greta, we saw just how much they dare, and we don’t like it, no sir!
The Rageaholic is angry and loud, just like Joe.
He is also cogent, intelligent, and well spoken in a rage-y kind of way.
All admirable traits Joe approves (and wishes to emulate).
Here is the Rageaholic’s reply to a pandemic amnesty, and all who would be excused.
DO NOT FORGIVE. DO NOT FORGET:
Dr. Elizabeth Bright
Joe and I are researching the effects of “fat fasting”.
The idea is to maximize the interaction of cortisol (highest in the morning – starting about 2:00 a.m. and peaking in the early morning) with stored fat management.
This video with Kelly Hogan features Dr. Bright.
The discussion of fat fasting begins about 15:30 in the video.
Good advice from Dr. Bright:
Iodine and Fat
The following video features Dr. Bright with some advice about nutrition.
Especially important to women.
As the title implies, eating fat and making sure iodine is included in your food is a sure way to improve your overall health.
Dr. Bright connects iodine and cortisol with thyroid function and overall health.
A wealth of information:
Stefan covers the Canadian trucker’s protest judicial shenanigans.
Joe and I get a Swedish perspective from this excellent man:
An interesting series of AI projects and AI realities.
Then, a heaping helping of what is to come:
Last year we embedded a video of a rat infestation in Australia. The rats were in the hundreds of millions and caused an incredible amount of damage.
Seems there is a similar problem in Texas every year.
Feral pigs cause big problems.
This video shows some hunting techniques that are used to reduce their numbers.
Joe and I expect these feral pigs are much like coyotes in that they are mostly diseased and toxic.
We think the bicycle horn is a stroke of genius!:
