General Discussion, Wednesday, February 7, 2018

I feel the taste of salt upon my lips
And hear the boom sound of the waves
Pitting their strength against the rock
The white foam flying –
Isolated and alone I stand
A part of sea and crying bird and sand.
Here my soul finds sweet release;
In God’s own quietness is rest and peace.

    Congressman on dossier used for FISA warrant: “Where there’s smoke there’s fire”
    Tipping Point With Liz Wheeler on OAN
    Representative Russell from Oklahoma

    Steven Dane Russell is a retired American soldier and politician. A Republican, he represents Oklahoma’s 5th congressional district in the United States House of Representatives. He is a former member of the Oklahoma Senate. Wikipedia
    Born: May 25, 1963 (age 54), Oklahoma City, OK
    Office: Representative (R-OK 5th District) since 2015
    Spouse: Cindy Myers (m. 1985)
    Education: United States Army Command and General Staff College (1998), Ouachita Baptist University (1985)
    Children: Chris Russell, Patricia Russell, Matthew Russell, Hannah Russell, Jessica Russell

    BTW, the U. S. Army Command and General Staff College is an exclusive school. A superior officer sees a junior officer they think has great potential for upper command leadership, vets him, approves him and then announces the invitation. I doubt anyone has ever turned it down. I discovered this info when doing some research a few years ago.

    I’m a pretty handy woman when it comes to doing remodel work, but I have to admit, I have never operated a caulking gun in my life…

    I have been diligently removing old caulking on showers, tubs, kitchen counters, etc, but I have been deliberately avoiding the recaulk that needs to happen….until yesterday…

    Holy moly…..there is laughter to be found in failure and I was a laughing fool during this project…..but I’m happy to say the counter is done & it looks great and I am once again reminded how invaluable are the self-help videos that can be found on line.

    Good morning all, it looks to be another beautiful day. :0)

      Good for you, Litenmaus. I’m like you. This year with the help of self help videos, I replaced the dryer heating element, and the drain motor on the washing machine. Tore the stove apart and checked the components for conductivity which would have shown what needed to be replaced. (Alas – the part I needed is no longer made and the entire stove had to be replaced.)

      Having said all that, I would rather chop down a tree and split it into kindling with my forehead than caulk anything.

          Wow – you’re brave! I would not do anything with gas – in fact here in NH you can entirely build your own house without any licenses (unlike Mass.), all except gas. You have to have a licensed gas company person do everything related to gas – and they DO inspect it carefully. You can be your own electrician, your own plumber, no builder needs to be licensed – but they are real picky about gas!

It’s fun being married to (& raising) a Jack of All Trades. Lots of times I do the online research & my husband does the hands on stuff. We both end up using logic to troubleshoot the problems that inevitably arise. It’s great to save money by doing it yourself & nothing competes with that pride of accomplishment! We’re glad that at least one of our kids gets it too…

            My brothers learned to fix cars from my father, and my mother always referred to how good it was to have a resident mechanic. Of course, my father could fix anything, having been born when stuff could be repaired. My mother had a cartoon in the kitchen of a woman holding a very antique machine, telling her husband, “I don’t want you to fix it! I want a new toaster!”

              My dad could fix anything. They had a toaster from the early 50’s that he just kept fixing and it still was working when they died some years ago. Also, when I was cleaning the last few things out of the attic, there was a drill from goodness knows when that he had fixed so many times he finally gave up on it, I guess. It was super glued together and duck taped. LOL It had one of those old cloth electric cords on it that he had taped back together.

            • My husband’s father taught his half-brothers so much about repairing things & hard work (my husband was too young when his parents divorced to get it then). Later his mom remarried & his step dad taught him many things about hard work in/on the house, car, yard, & various types of equipment. These seem to be skills that are being lost on the younger generation(s)–tragically.

              A few months back my husband & our (then) teenage daughter worked together to repair our fritzing TV. It was a huge boost to her self-esteem to share in that successful adventure (& a “fun” task to do with her dad!)…

    Anyone ever hear of a gravity hill? Yesterday I stumbled across a video of a guy in a car in Oakwood Cemetary in Farmington, Michigan. It looks like the car is tolling backwards uphill.

    After a little research, it turns out there is a logical reason for this. It also appears that water runs uphill in these places.

      When was about 10 or 11, we were driving from Montana to SoCal to visit family. There was a place in the mountains, on two lane highway at the time, where that occurred. My brother I were glued to the backseat window as my dad pointed out to us that the water in the stream by the road was “running up hill” and yes, it was, to all appearances. Really strange and dis-orienting. Especially if we kept staring and trying to figure it out.

      A similar visual/sensation thing occurs if you are stopped at a stoplight/intersection, and suddenly, it feels like your car is rolling – if your vision is focused a certain way at the same time the car next to you moves slightly. I

    OK, so yesterday was the 40th anniversary of the Blizzard of ’78. Howie Carr did a funny takeoff of how weather forecasters overdo everything as a “snow apocalypse” now-a-days. I guess if you’re not from one of the states affected you probably don’t remember, but the 1938 hurricane, hurricane Carol, and the blizzard of 78 are considered the 3 biggies.
    This morning I was looking out at the snow. It was very fine, and at this time of year whenever I see fine snow like this in February I think of “the storm”. Just some memories: My dad left on Sunday because he was part of the state emergency management team, he did not come home for over a week. My sister did not stay up and shovel her doors so by Monday morning we had to walk over and shovel her out. The snow completely covered her 2 doors. My niece was 6 months old, and could only have soy formula, and sis ran out. Thank goodness our brother had a snowplow on his truck. We called drugstores and found one where the people stayed, and they had the formula. He went to get it, and the cops almost arrested him for being on the roads, but then they let him go. It took around 5 days for the front end loaders to get to our street to remove the snow. The Burlington Mall was one of the 1st big covered malls in the area, and the snowplows plowed themselves into the parking lot, plowed the lot, then plowed their way out, and got arrested! All commercial snowplows were supposed to be working for the state, but Dukakis was horrible about not paying them after they plowed,so they refused. A friend was stuck at work, and could not get out. They had to break into the cafeteria refrigerators to get something to eat. They were stuck there for days without a shower, sleeping on the floor. DH was at the Beanpot hockey game, stayed, and then had to walk home through snow and high winds. BTW in the 1938 storm in my mom’s grammar school the nuns had the little kids walk home during the storm rather than sheltering them in the school. A college friend’s mother was pregnant, and went into labor. A firetruck managed to get there, but had difficulty getting back. She delivered the baby ON TOP of the firetruck!
    This website has a lot of interesting info http://www.blizzardof78.org “The statistics were staggering: 27.1 inches of snow in Boston (40 inches in parts of Rhode Island), 99 deaths, 4,500 injuries, 350 federal troops, $520 million dollars in damages, and 3,000 cars and 500 trucks abandoned on just an 8 mile stretch of Route 128. Two major landmarks were lost.
    The sand, ice and rocks thrown up onto the seaside streets turned to cement, making it next to impossible to get anything out of the ice that was left outside.

    Rte 128, the major highway around Boston, was full of thousands stranded cars and trucks.

    The seas flooded streets, destroyed homes, and sunk ships.

        In 1993 we had two feet of snow in March. It crippled the South. We were, of course, absolutely unprepared. It was over a week of misery. No power, lots without water, and the interstates, 24 and 75, were closed. Lots of stranded people.

        The company I worked for was closed for a week.

        I never want to go through something like that again. BTW, if I remember correctly, I’m pretty sure temps were in the fifties during the day, and dropped to 20 or so in a matter of hours.

            When my sister lived in Manitoba in the 1970s they were snowed in for two weeks. Not fun with four children, a couple of dogs and a cat inside. Very luckily they had plenty of venison, fish and vegetables in the freezer and didn’t lose their power. The pipes held, too.

            After about 10 days, they opened their mud room door and saw a bit of daylight at the top. Her husband removed enough snow so he could crawl through the enlarged opening and then began the digging out. Their nearest neighbor was ten miles away; so there was no assistance and he had to clear everything himself, with some help from my sister and their 10-year-old.

      • We spent Christmas in Chicago, sometime between ’77&’85 & it was bitterly cold. Coming in on I-94 from Michigan it was coated with ice with cars & trucks in the ditches & jack-knifed as we neared Lake Michigan. I believe the thermometer was at -60F with the windchill at -100. Ironically my aunt & uncle’s home was a passively heated solar home (“Prairie Sun” in Naperville) & we were all quite warm inside. They made my dog sleep in the garage but used a small wooden stove for her so she didn’t freeze to death…That was a pretty intense trip & obviously memorable…We’d traveled in a station wagon with a 16-20 foot tree strapped on top for their two-storey living room…

          Have you tried running some water thru them while they’re outside? Might just be some volatile chemicals in the plastic leeching out (see Nancy Pelosi speech post) and an airing/run or two outside might clear it out.
          If that don’t work try to get a refund from the store where you bought it. If they balk I’d call the company and explain it to them, casually mentioning your next call will be to the Consumer Products Safety Commission.

            Hi Czar. Yes I’m guessing volatile chemicals is exactly what it is. I looked around and could not find Pelosi speech post you referred to – Sorry. I had been running the humidifiers for a few days in a less used room. They would freeze outside πŸ™‚ I wish I could run them outside! Maybe after a month the smell would be gone. I notice this particular smell in many plastic household items such as this that are made in china. It used to be in air purifiers (of which I returned many) and then the manufacturers got the hint having a chemical smell in an air purifier won’t work, but I guess other people have been OK with it in humidifiers. I can return this one as well. It’s just that I really need a humidifier that does not stink. My last resort is to buy a gallon of Zero Odor Pro (expensive) and run that through. Thanks for your advice – much appreciated πŸ™‚

    Two articles from Jihad Watch’s Robert Spencer today regarding truly heroic women, not these phony U.S. p-hat marchers….

    β€œIslamic Republic of Iran: Woman arrested for removing hijab refuses to repent despite facing 10 years in prison”
    Narges Hosseini is an actual feminist. Where are the feminists of the West speaking up for her right not to wear the hijab? Linda Sarsour? Anyone?

    Apparently those on the left think having a military parade is facist (or something).

    Seen on Facebook:

    Dan Bongino
    Looney Tunes Liberals: β€œTrump wants a military parade. He’s an insane fascist.”

    Same Looney Tunes Liberals: β€œLet’s parade all over Washington in female genitalia hats screaming impeach Trump.”

      These numbskulls keep purposely forgetting that fascists are left-wingers who believe that government gives rights to the people and completely regulates business. Communism doesn’t permit the people to have any rights and owns the means of production.

      Just because fascists hated communists during WWII doesn’t mean that made them right-wing. Hitler imprisoned or killed communists because they were competition to his sole dictatorship. Stalin did the same to political groups who opposed him.

      It m the SD n his one. President Trump gets a two-fer. Finally, at long last, the military men and women get more than a token nod, and thenleft exposes its hatred of America, and her heroes, even more to the regular people who are just not quite seeing the clear picture yet.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    I went with my friend to see Jumanji today. Now remember this is from a person who doesn’t particularly care for CGI or action movies in general. IT WAS GREAT!! I laughed all the way through it. I am not a huge Dwayne Johnson fan. I mean I always thought he was ok, but didn’t care too much for the movies he was in. I loved him in this. The way he switched from big tough guy hero to scared nerd and back was amazing. Also, I think Jack Black is funny on occasion, but don’t usually go to movies he is in. He was so good in this. And, something funny, we went to the ladies room after the movie and there were about 6 other women in there. They had all been in the movie and some had seen it multiple times, one at least 5. LOL

      Um, I don’t know what the rest of that clip is about and I thought I had clicked on another one that was just the trailer. So you have to turn it off. πŸ™„
