finding the calm in the storm

So much of what I see, read, hear, fight against … so much of my world and what I share here is about the evil forces and their assault on everything we appreciate about our world. Once in a while a supremely positive note comes my way. I need those. You probably do as well. As I read the mantra below I was inspired to do as it instructed. But where? Where in my current world is the right place to connect with my spirituality, nature, the cosmos …? Recalling when I was most at peace and in harmony with the natural world took me to the Pacific Coast. Walking, jogging, laying and playing on the sandy beaches with […]

I’m back in the fight

My absence has been from seeing the two sides so firm in their convictions there was nothing I could say, do, expose, or explain to effect any change. One of the best snapshots I get into The Other Side is our weekly extended family Zoom Meeting. One of the more successful brothers answered my wife’s anti-vaxx statement with, “There are two sides to that issue”. He is absolutely correct. On the one side we have people who have looked into, considered both sides. On the other are those who trust the wrong people to have done the research for them, ignoring anyone or anything that challenges their convictions. I am quite certain an open-minded person capable of reading English […]

8 Day FAST – lessons, experience

It is over. I made a gourmet stew that waited in the crock pot for my wife to get home from her vacation at an unknown afternoon-evening time. It was excellent. Turns out I really like food. 😉 It was not easy. I do not recommend what I did, known as an extended water-only fast. Most of the important results can be had with more convenient, accessible options that I outline below and in the video to the right. I know of no other person who has deliberately denied themselves food beyond one day. It is, however, a healing tool far more valuable than having your own personal MD on call. Extremely rare is the person who succeeds in fasting […]

clearing the air

For the last few days, the wildfire smoke around here has been rated “UNHEALTHY”. I use the site AirNow to verify. Click the link to see any city. The Montana Department of Environmental Quality and relatives offer this advice: People with heart or lung disease, older adults, children and teens – take any of these steps to reduce your exposure: Avoid strenuous outdoor activities. Keep outdoor activities short. Consider moving physical activities indoors or rescheduling them. Everyone else – take any of these steps to reduce your exposure: Choose less strenuous activities (like walking instead of running) so you don’t breathe as hard. Shorten the amount of time you are active outdoors. Be active outdoors when air quality is better. […]

flesh and bone VS titanium

In my June 9th post Do-It-Yourself Knee Replacement, I discussed my aversion to turning a surgeon loose on my knees and how my use of naturally-produced dietary supplements had put my “need” for knee replacement off over a dozen years past the AMA wizard’s prediction. Recent events both reinforce and refute my stance. One of the guys about my age at our recent family reunion had both knees replaced with titanium contraptions and “loves them”… “No pain”… He plays LOTS of golf… “Gets around great”… Three of us older gents teamed up to remove from the shipping box and assemble a new barbecue/smoker. I watched the bionic man get down and up to assemble bits from the floor. I also […]

Do-It-Yourself knee replacement

In the latter part of 2005 I tore the meniscus in a severely abused knee. The surgeon who went in trimming away the pieces causing the main disabling pain assured me my meniscus was so thin I would be back within a year for the full artificial knee replacement. At that time I had heard of people who had wonderful results from that process as well as about an equal number who were crippled by it. Fifty-fifty was not inspirational to me. I still had my natural mobility though it was a bit too tender for extended use. Up and down stuff was rough. Major hiking, lots of ladder work and most athletics were out. I still preferred that to […]

Alert The “Vaccine” Is a Bioweapon – 5 Doctors Testify

Mainstream media, mainstream medical, big pharma, all government … let’s just call them “the usual suspects” do not want you to watch this video. It is crucial to your health and those around you that you do indeed watch it. I absolutely guarantee it will be worth it. I have another related one I will share at Bitterroot Bugle, but not now. I do not want to distract from this one in any way. I’ll put it up tomorrow. Watch this one first and foremost. The other one is short and related. Below I share the entire article from the source where I found it. Come back to those links and the text later. FIRST, watch the five doctors share […]

intermittent fasting – getting ready for swimsuit season

I have written about fasting and published here, at Bitterroot Bugle, and Idaho Liberty. There are many forms a fast can take with “intermittent fasting” likely the most popular. The easiest of those is skipping one of our three standard meals of each day. I began leaving lunches off the table several years ago. That was rather convenient and helped my waistline a lot. I am now older and slower. I don’t even burn off two good meals a day any more. Last summer the kitchen help took a nine day vacation to visit her family. I minded the homestead and took the opportunity to do a full water-only fast. That is nine days between meals. It was very […]

hair care

Via age and personality, I have approached caring for my hair a wide variety of ways. Some will be surprised that I was normal once upon a time. My hair looked like every other guy’s hair and the products in my shower were the same stuff that everybody in the country had in theirs. Once in a while circumstances would put extended periods of time between barber visits, both professional and volunteers. I was rather indifferent to that. The stuff grew. It was cut or not cut. I dealt with it either way. I have written and published several articles on why Nature tries to grow long hair on our heads and why we should respect that. I won’t belabor […]

my quest for peace continues

This is a video I recorded once I decluttered my studio. Inspired by the big, fat snowflakes gracefully floating down outside my cozy, comfy space, I chat a bit about the need to be calm and happy regardless of what is thrown at us.

finding peace

I realized an urgent need to find a peaceful place for my head. Knowing I live in one of the great places on Earth, it had to be somewhere around her if I looked. Sure enough, leaning back in my easy chair I saw it right in front of me. The clutter had to go. Hiding right there in plain sight was the studio space I had created as my personal ideal. I had simply allowed myself to move to rapidly from one project to the next without resetting my space to the order and neatness I require. Yesterday I restored it. Then I returned to music and art after a long absence. Lovely. […]

the COVID Scam

This is the foundation for all of the totalitarian changes they have made to our world in the last year. With one orchestrated move, lamestream media, lame political figures and ugly insider celebrities sold a bill of goods to the susceptible. At first most of us thought a truly dangerous bio-weapon was a very real possibility. It turned out to be 100% psychological operation (psy-op). The flu deaths and other morbidities disappeared for a year. EVERY death was COVID. Annual totals world-wide remained unchanged. The labeling was all they had to change. That was too easy. I will be covering other aspects of this psy-op with upcoming posts, but this is clearly the foundation… completely built on deceit. From […]
