certified olive oil

I am proud that I do not unquestioningly accept pronouncements from OFFICIALS. But the University of California, Davis olive oil story broadcast all over the lamestream and Internet media sucked me in. I hate to admit I was faked out by the fake story on fake olive oil, ๐Ÿ™ but am happy to publish the other side. ๐Ÿ™‚ Once you read the information on the graphics below, you will distrust Davis too. The good news is that you can trust olive oil that carries the North America Olive Oil Association label. I received the following very polite e-mail about my republishing of the UC Davis story: ———– Hi Ted, I noticed your recent article on olive oil brands falsely […]

lap lab

GG and female #4. Pretty hard to not be happy around puppies. To touch these babies … finer than silk more precious than gold.

Bitterroot River morning

Just a pleasant diversion in a world that is not always this pretty. I recommend you turn your sound up a bit and put this on full screen for a minute.

warming up

After a few weeks of afternoon temperatures well above freezing, the ice is finally gone from our driveway and roads. That enabled me to get my bicycle out of the shed and take it for it’s first ride of the year. The tires had given up a little air over the winter. I didn’t even bother to refill. They weren’t low enough to cause any harm, just increase their rolling resistance. Said another way, I had to pedal harder and couldn’t go as fast as I would be able to were they properly inflated. No loss at all. The point was to spend TIME outside and to push the pedals for exercise. Neither distance traveled nor speed of travel were […]

electricity – who needs it?

I hope you aren’t overly attached to electrical devices and the power grid delivering it regularly. As I pointed out last July, USAF has reoccupied Cheyenne Mountain as insurance against EMP attacks. Were I in a leadership position of some country threatened by the USofA adventurism, launching an EMP from a container ship near the Pacific, Atlantic or Gulf coast would be one of the crucial first steps to cut the power of the world’s dominant military machine. I am no great military mind, but fershur if I can see this, there are Chinese, Koreans, Iranians, Russians and others who can too… and who could do the job any time they wished. Those of us labeled “conspiracy theorists” by the […]

Bull* vetoes

Bullock again proves himself ignorant and incompetent to hold an office representing the people of Montana. Twenty states have “Constitutional Carry” – that is, no law against carrying weapons regardless of whether your coat falls over it or not. There are absolutely no related problems in any of them. With a strong, knowledgeable gun culture, Montana is no more at risk than any of them, particularly including the most recent addition to that list, New Hampshire. Both houses of the state legislature agreed. King Bull* disagreed. His second idiotic move Thursday was vetoing legal carry into Montana Post Offices. Over a decade ago a couple of US Postal Service employees “went postal” and shot some co-workers. From postal service […]

sneezing etiquette

Though nearly a decade old, this video on minimizing the spread of diseases should be shared again. The easiest reflex is to put your hand up to keep from blasting everyone nearby. But it is wrong. Mythbusters took on the sleeve VS hand and hankie in the lower video. While the upper one uses logic and expects you to trust them, as is their mission, Mythbusters finds a way to test the theory.

dam threatens Bitterroot

I have published 6 articles in the last 3 years about the risk posed downstream from the Painted Rocks dam reservoir. A couple of them were from when I was attempting to work with the Ravalli County Office of Emergency Services. Bitterroot Bugle previous articles on Painted Rocks I cannot forget how my meeting with the head and his assistant went. The assistant, by the way, is now the agency chief. “ According to your data, a Painted Rocks Dam failure would put a 20-40 foot wall of water through The West Fork, Conner and Darby, and 20 feet through Hamilton. Do you believe that assesment? Well, we aren’t engineers, but yes, we believe their analysis. That would mean perhaps […]
