Ted’s essays

hammered by early winter blizzard

Two weeks ago I was photographing Autumn in The Bitterroot. It is typically a short season, but we do not normally, naturally get much snow until Thanksgiving – a month or so from now. The Blizzard of October 23-24, 2020 will stand out for a long time. I can count on a number of light snowfalls my Sportsman plow will push away along with the gravel that worked its way to the surface over the summer. Not this time. Thirteen and a half inches is WAY MORE than my little plow can push anywhere. This season started with the snowblower as my only snow management choice. It had two problems dealing with the overload. One was the gravel beating […]

Autumn on our homestead

With four days of rain predicted and reasonable certainty that both the summer and the Indian Summer are history, I saw this morning as my last chance to seed the areas my construction projects this year laid bare. I have been trying to buy or borrow a real harrow to work the seeds under cover, but nothing worked out. So I made my own along the lines of cheap, scrappy farm yard stuff. Old boards. Fence scrap. Screws. Chain. Ingenuity. It worked just fine. It has been almost a decade since I sold off my 20-year business, The Gentleman Farmer with tractors, implements, good-will and customer list. Our Bunkhouse homestead demanded a snow plow so I have a Polaris […]

You have 34 days left in this world

We are between TEOTWAWKI and TSHTF. That is to say that the world as we knew it at the beginning of this year will never come back. It ended. Forever. However the worst is yet to come – in BIG WAYS. Most analysts who have any credibility put the latter date on or around the USofA November election 34 days from now. It could easily be plus or minus a few days, but The Big Ugly is on the visible horizon. Warnings come to us from people studying their own specialties; all are converging in about a month: weather, environment, crop failures and numerous hits that the global food supply chain is suffering global politics, friction and threat of regional […]

rack for long-handled tools

I have made several versions of this. My new one is based on heavy-gauge steel hog panels, also known as livestock panels. I had, have some scraps kicking around that needed repurposing. The photographs are actually celebrating my moving the tool rack from the “Tool Port” to the adjacent “Car Port”. Since my diminutive Honda CRX is occupying a full-sized parking space, there is plenty of room for the tools which were contributing to the overcrowding in my tool shed. Last year I repurposed a plastic strip door, but snow blew in and made a hash of it. Since I never walk or drive through that opening, I disabled the strip movement, making it solid so I could put […]

terraforming my homestead

flat spot at top of our hill – future radio installation? I have also heard it called “hardscaping”. I simply called it “tractor work” for the 20 years I did it commercially. My vision was one of the reasons I was successful at it. I could visualize re-formed landscape better than most. Exceptionally skilled driving was another part of it. I appear to have lost very little of either in over a dozen years since I sold The Gentleman Farmer. I have been gaining control of our little homestead over the last few years, but have not had much impact outside the fenced yard until this month. I resolved the drainage / snow-removal issue that turned the floor of our […]

In that case, what are my priorities for the next month or two?

As we learned, or had reinforced the horrible information about The Vaccine we are expected to embrace, the globalists, satanists, new world order monsters play by certain rules. They have to publish their plans in advance and they must get us to voluntarily take their poison. Their religion is one of their weaknesses. Another is their lack of imagination, or intelligence. Creative thinkers can be steps ahead of them if we are paying attention. The third is underestimating us, their enemy. In The Vaccine is The Show – all else is distraction or preparatory video I shared from Doctor Carrie Madej with Richie from Boston (I share again at the bottom of this essay), she continually interjects optimism into the […]

The Vaccine is The Show – all else is distraction or preparatory

This is the most important video you will ever watch in your life. Doctor Carrie Madej and Richie from Boston know full well the risks they take producing and publishing this information, but know it would be much worse for them and us if they do not. These two epitomize Fearless and Knowledge; devote themselves and their lives to helping others understand The Big Picture. What do these troubling things we are witnessing today all have in common? What is the goal? What is the end game? Please give this video 10 minutes – I promise you will want to watch to the end – and share in every way you can. Both Carrie and Richie are fully aware of […]

on a brighter note – make that lots of notes

A trombone great I never heard of does amazing imitations of many I have heard of in a light-hearted stand-up routine. She is enough of a student to understand and appreciate their various styles and a great enough musician to reproduce them one after another.

tale of two flocks

The Marxists, socialists, participation trophy crowd successfully took over USofA’s centralized education system. Built on a foundation of global excellence in science and mathematics, their “progressive” changes converted it to a Sub-Sahara feel-good missionary school. Dumbed-down degrees are handed out to illiterates who majored in the new oral tradition of “How do you feel about that?”, as opposed to “What is the correct answer?”. Today’s intelligent, ambitious teens and twenties enter the workforce via entrepreneurship, trade schools or apprenticeships. The square-cap crowd know less REAL STUFF upon college graduation than most of us did in eighth grade. But they are eminently employable. Soros and his corporate sponsor friends are happy to pay each of them $25 untaxed cash per […]

Neighborhood Darby

The trials and tribulations that are rapidly approaching us will not be long-term survivable by individuals. Any hope we have will be founded in strong communities. To that end, I am DOING SOMETHING. That is obviously a whole bunch better than hiding in a foxhole, wringing hands, aimlessly worrying or ignoring a great impending ugliness. This certainly will not be the first time I tried community organizing in Darby, Montana. I suspect my “Sky Is Falling” warning is much more widely understood this time. For print-out purposes, here is the same flier as a .pdf: Neighborhood Darby flier On a related subject: How to Start A Neighborhood Watch Group […]

priorities in between TEOTWAWKI -and- TSHTF

The End Of The World As We Know It began early this year. You ain’t seen nuthin’ yet. The S*** will probably Hit The Fan before this year is out. Economic collapse, food supply collapse, world war, cultural breakdown, civil war, attempts to force DNA-altering vaccines on many who will resist to the death, physical manifestations of disgust with career politicians … if you have been studying at this website and linked resources, you know a “Perfect Storm” of designed attacks on our way of life are coming our way very soon. Most serious scholars of the various assaults working to establish The New World Order figure it is coming to a head in October or November, with the […]

the fresh air, full face culture

Those who get their information exclusively from lamestream media receive regular doses of lies, propaganda, fear mongering, terrorism and agenda-driven programming. It has been consolidated, controlled, and contrived to move the masses into various beliefs that suit the purposes of the globalists on their quest for a New World Order. Competing with this is the World Wide Web. This is the home for the remaining investigative reporters of the planet along with the philosophers, resistors, thinkers, and its share of shills cluttering it up with its own blizzard of lies. On the one side you are guaranteed lies about anything of consequence 100% of the time. On the other side it is 50/50 requiring thinking and analysis to separate fact […]
