Prepping Starter

 Let's talk preparation.  First, we'll look at personal/family preparation, both for short (3 day emergency supply) and long term ( 1 year).  then we should talk about group or team preparedness.  In the case of the Church, let's talk about how our local Ward can be more prepared for long term or catastrophic situations.


As a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I have been hearing about food and other supply storage all my life.  President Brigham Young was the first to present this wisdom to the Church and it's developed almost to the stage of being a commandment.

There is a story, that I can't confirm, about one of the Church Presidents; I think, President Benson but, once again, I haven't found a confirming reference.  Anyway, the story goes that he was attending Sacrament Meeting at a small ward while on vacation.  The congregation was breathlessly awaiting the words of a Prophet.  He walked to the podium and asked for a show of hands as to how many had their years supply of goods.  Very few hands went up.  His response?  "If you won't listen to me about this simple thing, why should I waste my words on anything else?" (or something to that effect).

Whether the story is true or not, the sentiment is correct.  Since the mid 1800's, we have been counselled to have at least a years supply of goods stored for emergencies.  Actually, it has been as much as seven years supply, then two and now one.  How the expectations for our obedience have fallen!

 My Grandmother had cans of wheat, powdered milk and many other food storage items stored.  There was little room under any bed in the house as the space was taken up by preparation storage.

When I became older I saw the wisdom of this kind of preparation and tried to keep up at least a years supply of food in our house.  

Is this in preparation for Armageddon?  Is this in preparation for Biblical famines?  If so, the counsel came a bit early as we haven't seen any national or international failures which required use of our storage.  So, has it just been alarmist, world ending talk?  A waste of our time and effort?

No, my Brothers and Sisters.  This has always been wise counsel.  Remember Genesis, Chapter 41.  Food storage during the days of plenty resulted in having food available during a famine.

I have used my storage more than once, with job endings and family crises.  Then, you can take into account the hurricanes, blizzards, earthquakes, floods and all the other natural disasters that can happen in the blink of an eye and cause us to put our preparedness to use.

Again, it's just good, wise counsel;  incidentally, from the Prophets of God.  Always a good source.

So, I've talked you into it.  But your cupboards are bare, your pantry dusty and little used.  Where do you start?

As I write this, I'm frustrated by the complexity I'm getting into.  For every suggestion, there seems to be three more tangents I want to veer onto, each leading to another three or four tangents.

My problem is that I've been doing this for many years and I have a lot of interest in it.  I'm one extreme.  At the other extreme is one of my best friends.  He goes to the grocery store almost every day and the only thing he has stored are leftovers in his fridge from the last time he went to the store!  Oh, he's got a couple of boxes of cereal and some pancake mix and syrup.  Things he can't use up with one meal, but you get the idea.  If something happened that shut the doors of the grocery stores, he'd be on the road, trying to get to my house!

Let's first discuss an emergency supply.  Let's call it a three day supply.  What would you need if there were an earthquake and you had to wait for the authorities to recover and bring more normalcy to your area?  Food, of course.  You can easily buy manufactured three day supply kits today and most of those are adequate.  

Here's the way I did it.  I got a big tote.  Something I can toss into my pickup and drive away with.  In it, I put cooking and eating utensils, Bisquick, some of those rice side dishes, some cans of chili, some dried fruit, granola bars and a good first aid kit, a flashlight, radio (extra batteries for both), shovel,  belt knife with sharpener, a hatchet, sewing kit and hygiene kit.  (As an aside here, we're back to how badly I want to skew off into a tangent.  What do I put in my first aid kit?  What kind of cooking utensils do I pack?  I could go on and on!!)  I have two full changes of clothing, with emphasis on utility, such as heavy shirts, jeans or G.I. pants (Clothing is one of Uncle Sam's best things), dry socks, gloves, a warm hat and a jacket. 

By now, your tote is probably pretty full.  But, with it you need a sleeping bag, tent, camp stove and fuel.  Food and clothing you need to pack for each person.  You can get by with one of the tools and radios and so on for each family group.

Now, make this fun!  Plan a camping trip with your family.  Go with just what you have packed and prepared and see how well your preparations go for a couple of nights using JUST what's in your kit.  Take paper and pencil to keep a good list of all the other things you want in that kit!

I also have a backpack in each car with a slightly reduced version of the big three day kit and I have gone on camping trips where I just used what I had in the car with me, as if I became stranded in my vehicle and had to wait for rescue.

Now, let's think about your years supply.

In the beginnings of the Klondike Gold Rush, men were going into the Alaskan/Canadian wilderness woefully unprepared, with nowhere near enough provisions or gear and it resulted in the Mounties rescuing (or burying) many.  Thus, in 1897, the Canadian government ordered that each prospector entering that area bring with him a years supply of goods.  Not just food, but also clothing, tools and other supplies they would need.   It was called "a Ton of Goods" and the order was strictly enforced.  https://www.nps.gov/klgo/learn/historyculture/tonofgoods.htm

Although our food preservation and storage technology has vastly improved since 1897, the Klondike list is still a good place to go for an idea of what you might want to begin to collect.  http://alaskaweb.org/mining/supplylist.html

With this "basics" kind of list in mind, still the most useful list you can make is the one you take to the grocery store every day.  What do you and your family like?  Buy a little extra, each time you go shopping, and store that extra in a separate area than the goods you are using daily.  As the "extras" start to add up, begin using those and replacing them.

I think, in the interest of brevity, I'll just tell you about my own system and system to be.

Incidentally, those "use by" dates are a guideline: not so much an absolute.  In most cases those are "lawyers dates" as much as safety dates.  https://pubs.nmsu.edu/_e/E118/index.html

But, food isn't our only needed item for a year, is it?  How about clothing, soap, batteries, entertainment items, first aid supplies, tools...anything you use on a normal basis might be something of which you should have extra.  How about medications?  I know.  The doctors and pharmacies aren't agreeable to "hoarding" your meds but maybe you can figure something out.  Speaking of hoarding, remember when the Covid hysteria first hit?  The runs on toilet paper and paper towels?  On one hand, that was kind of a dumb thing on which to focus but those ARE items you need to have in your storage.  I have a years supply of the toilet paper that I like and a big bag of a cheaper kind...trade goods, you know.


I have canned goods of multiple kinds, fruit, veggies, meals (Chili is a big staple for me) and such things.  I have sugar, salt, rice, beans, flour and wheat.  I have a grain grinder that I can use either by hand or with electricity.  I have hand cranked meat grinders as well as electric food processors.  I have chainsaws but I also have hand saws, whip saws, hacksaws...lots of saws.  Axes, hatchets, shovels, rakes, pitchforks and a brace with bits. 

I am one who can quite comfortable live on beans, rice and cornbread with some nutritional supplements to round things out.  Bacon, pancakes and eggs are nice too and then I like a hit of chocolate once in a while.  Fruits and vegetables are a nice addition to a boring diet while spices, onions, peppers and that sort of thing make it "living", not just "surviving".  See how I start getting more and more complicated?  

I have been an EMT and my first aid closet is extensive.  It would take a page just to list all that stuff.

Gasoline, batteries, propane, camp stove fuel.  Oil lamps, Coleman lanterns and the fuel and mantles for each.  Hand soap, dish soap, laundry soap, toothpaste.

Two freezers full as well as what is in my fridge in the house.

Two 55 gallon barrels of water as well as a bunch of filled water bottles.  You have to figure a gallon of water per person per day so I don't have a years worth of water...yet.  

I have a tri-fuel generator that will power the basics in my house for a while.  Solar panels keep a battery bank charged up for power to the freezers.  Another solar system stores power for my radios, a computer and my surveillance cameras.

Speaking of radios, when the cell phone towers go down, how do you keep in contact with your family?  Hmmm?  Old fashioned CB radio is my first go-to but I also have other radio options as well.  Just those blister packed radios from Walmart are better than shouting down the street!   https://cowboyentertainer.blogspot.com/2020/08/this-is-repost-on-this-blog.html

You get the idea.  I want to be as self-sufficient as I can be.

Now, let's examine a group setup, which is always best.  For our discussion, I want to address this as a Ward organization and kind of tailor it to the rural Ward in which I live.

Some of our Ward members are farmers.  Bet ya more than one of them has an off-grid well, running irrigation.  There's a good water source for the Ward members, right there.  Even those of us stuck in town could haul water from one of those back to our homes.  

The Ward building could be a good shelter in the event of flood, earthquake or other mass situation.  A place for all of us to run.  Our local county government has the 4H building and rodeo grounds buildings designated for such an occurrence but we should plan to be able to take care of ourselves.

Other Wards have communications specialists and there are some good Church radio nets out there so that we could keep in contact with Stake and even regional leadership.

In our Ward all walks of life are represented.  We have plumbers, carpenters, farmers, security specialists, mechanics, nurses, electricians.  We can easily band together and support each other, just as did the early Church.

So, to conclude.  Start with putting together your three day emergency kit.  Maybe just put together an overnight emergency kit for your car, then work your way up.  Buy a little extra food whenever you go shopping and just put some aside.

Learn how to do more "from scratch" cooking.  Get and use some two way radios.  Use your kits.  Practice your emergency responses.  Coordinate with friends and family.

As the Boy Scouts say:  "Be Prepared".

New Substack Blog

 I keep saying that I'm going to get off of the political and Covid articles and do something more fun. Well, this is part of that effort.  

At first, I'm going to see about just BSing about old Law Enforcement stories, from my Air Force Security Police days as well as my time as a Deputy Sheriff in Montana and Oregon.  

We'll see how things go.

Anyway, please go to my substack page and subscribe.  Each story will go out as an e-mail and automatically be saved on my substack page as well.

I've copied all my old cowboyentertainer.blogspot.com blog articles  to my new substack page so those are also available.  Some of those might get sent out as e-mails also.

This can be a lot of fun and I'd really like to get all of you on board.

Thanks.

"Kids Today!!"


I'm an old guy. I lived when we had the best bands, the best music, the most admirable heros, the most freedom and the most opportunity. As I come to the end of my days, I think, more and more, that these are also the last really good days of our country and our world. Ok. I swore I'd never sound like my mother; But...Today's generation is a complete disaster. "Kids today!"


How did we lose our national masculinity? How did we lose so many of our youth to the God of Big Government? They all seem to WANT to be told what to do and to be taken care of "from womb to tomb" by others. It seems as if todays' youth are more likely to ask for handouts and freebies than for a job. And the ones with whom I've worked on jobs have abysmal work ethics.

There are lots of political and societal issues about which I disagree with most of our younger people but those aren't my real point here. For one thing, most of the younger people with whom I'm acquainted have little to no interest in politics or substantive issues. The activities of their sports/Movie/Music stars seem to be their primary focus. Most of the time, any comment they make about todays' issues are just parroting the more popular Main Stream Media and whatever they may have seen on Facebook or Twitter. Engaging in critical thinking of their own is almost unheard of. They "Go along to get along" on almost any subject.

Why? I (as usual) have a theory.

So, everyone who knows me at all knows that I reserve my top respect for those with a DD214.

Don't know what that is? Thank you for supporting my position. Anyway, I then tend to look at what a person has done, what lifes experience they might have and especially, what kind of public service have they performed. Peace Corps, Boy Scouts, Big Brother/Big Sister, volunteer fire or EMS...anything where they have given of themselves and their time to help others. Have they seen some hard times? Worked for a living? Provided for others? Even those who have always "had it all" can have a positive influence, just by making those payrolls and supporting employees. So.


Also, people of my generation experienced a World War and the Great Depression or were raised by families who did.  Our celebrities had that DD214 I talk about.  Many of those celebrities added decorations to that.  The Social Programs that were enacted back in those days, that today's liberals point to with pride, were based on the experiences gained from national and world events that would cause todays' youth to cower in their Safe Zone!  Here's the kind of thing I mean: https://www.menshealth.com/trending-news/g19546612/15-famous-people-didnt-know-were-in-military/


So, I went to my handy, dandy internet and looked up the top media influencers of the day. I used https://today.yougov.com/ratings/entertainment/fame/people/all, listing what they consider the twenty most famous people and https://www.visualcapitalist.com/worlds-top-50-influencers-across-social-media-platforms/, showing who they think are the most influential. I took the time to look up the bios of several of them and they all seemed about the same. Some college but mostly just living off of others while they developed their "craft" as actors/actresses or musicians. Even the politicians spent their youth working on being a politician, going to the "right" schools and supporting the best causes.

Of the twenty most famous, I saw three that I know have that DD214 thing. A couple approach the "giving of self" standard. Most...Nooottt so much. The majority of those people who garner the respect of our youth are do-nothing, done nothing celebrities. Even the parts the actors played could have been filled by other actors. Go back in time and remove that top 50 list and come back to a world little changed by their absence.

These are the people our youth look up to. These are the ones who influence the next generation of leaders. No wonder it seems as if our country and even our world is slowly circling the drain for one last time.

The Only Good News...God WILL prevail.

Let's see if I've got this right.

Men and women pretending to be women and men and THEN encouraging their Children to do the same! We murder babies in the name of "Freedom" but actually for the purpose of birth control. Government has made massive gains in controlling the worldwide population, dictating when or if we can gather in groups, whether we let Them "inoculate" us with unknown drugs and how, when, where and IF we travel. In many areas, even here in the United States, we can only attend functions, eat in restaurants, use public transportation and even enter publicly owned land and buildings if we present the proper "papers".

Our leaders and heroes, whether in Government, entertainment or sports, are suspected of being sexual predators with no boundaries, even to torturing, confining and brutalizing younger, even child, victims. The truth, for or against these allegations, is concealed from us but what is telling is that We Believe it COULD be happening! That kind of corruption is just accepted!

Disney company PUSHING gay/transgender lifestyles. For most of my life, we've relied on Disney to help provide us some wholesome and "safe" entertainment for our families. Now, they're ANTI-family.

How did the murder of unborn babies, as birth control, become a Political issue? Democrats used to be the party of the little guy. Unions, work regulations, healthcare. Debatable, certainly, but also well intentioned and much of what the Democrats managed to enact over the past 100 years has actually been good. Labor regulations, healthcare availability and so on. Now, Democrats are the party of masks, social distancing, abortion, sexual deviancy..."If it feels good, do it", while clandestinely lining Their pockets with our hard earned money that They can spend on trips to offshore sex slave islands. While Republicans are busy blatantly lining Their pockets with our cash so They can go to the same island, for the same purpose, but claim it's all about smaller government.

Government at all levels lying, cheating, stealing and covering up. Neither major political party has ANY honor or decency. An entire Presidential election stolen and the big loser installed in the White House as if he were a toilet, while the opposing party sits on it's hands and accepts and even condones the farce.

And the "Leader of the Free World" is such a doddering old fool that he obviously is in the complete control of "Handlers" and the most we do about it is laugh at Demented Old Joe. Then we blame that poor hapless idiot for all that is failing around us, even though he really has no idea what is going on. Just as They designed. Those who are really guiding the country down into the sewer face NO accountability. They just blame it on Poor Old Biden and we go along, happily drinking the poisoned Kool Aide.

A dangerous and highly contagious virus "appears" in the world. The likelyhood is that it was artificially enhanced, in labs Funded by Our Country, to be MORE deadly and contagious. Again, the truth of all this is concealed from all but we have no problem believing it to be true. We are so inured to corruption in our Government and other leadership that such a thing is just another "oh well" to be ignored while we smoke our blunt, drink our beer and watch more sports and Woke TV shows in our drugged out haze.

This partly artificial virus is used in multiple ways. First, it helps with the election theft. But it also gives our Government, at all levels, an opportunity to take as full and complete control as it can, showing Them and us that, if They want, They can make us do any damned thing they want. The majority of our world citizenship are simply puppets to be controlled. "It's for your safety".

Economies are deliberately ground down, using Their new virus toy, making the only truly free nation in the world even more weak and corrupted. The U.S. economy becomes more and more dependent on China and Russia, both outspoken enemies of everything we believe.

Our environment is under stealth assault. Under the guise of Protecting the environment, industries which cause even more damage are encouraged while the one known energy source is made to look bad.

Where's the bright side here? What solutions or encouragement do I provide?

Well, if you are Christian, you know that, although Satan is currently nearing complete control over this world, it all ends well. God will triumph and those of us who are suffering now will eventually see true Justice.

I'm sorry, though, for those of you who do not subscribe to the Biblical prophesies. I believe we are beyond the hope of rescue from common men. I think the world has tipped too far over into evil corruption for there to be any mortal relief. We now are almost totally in the hands of Satan and only God can bring it around.

I've touched on this in previous Blog posts and a couple of those merit repetition here.

The Peoples Convoy Is Set To Start!!

I've been writing on Facebook about the Canadian Freedom Convoy since it began and I've been pessimistic about the U.S. being able to do the same.

The U.S. IS about to stand up with Canada. During a week where the police are arresting peaceful protesters in Ottawa, using tear gas, pepper spray and riot gear, we are putting together our own convoy.

Here's the current information on the Peoples Convoy, set to begin in Adelanto, California and travel to Washington D.C.

I wish I could go.  My family has medical issues and I just can't drive away any more.  If I could, I'd hook up that RV, load up my cooking equipment and head down the road!

Anybody, trucker or not, can join this event and I highly recommend so doing!
Climb in your pickup, your Chartreuse Micro-Bus, your Chevy Volt or whatever you have and join in!

I'm sorry I can't practice what I preach this time but I'll be watching every step.
Go AMERICA! Go Truckers! Let's Go Brandon!

https://www.facebook.com/groups/2711696262309046



These Convoys aren't about vaccines. Most of the participants ARE vaccinated. It's about Mandates. It's about lockdowns and masking restrictions and restrictions on businesses and people interacting. It's about Government agents coming to churches to order them to close because there were too many people meeting there. It's about Australia's Quarantine camps.

It's about OUR FREEDOMS! Yours and mine, United States, Canada and all other countries in the world.

Canada is leading the way and other countries are following. So are we, finally. 

When I look at the videos of thousands of people lining the Canadian highways, cheering the convoy; thousands gathering right now in Ottawa and that 50K long (and more) line of trucks and cars headed east, over 6 million $ donated by regular citizens; I ask myself: How can the Canadian Government ignore this? How can they even debate it? This should make drastic changes, when they see that many citizens standing in solidarity.

We'd better do the same. Those Concentration Camps don't necessarily have to be only in Australia.
http://cowboyentertainer.blogspot.com/2021/12/quarantined-in-australia-howard-springs.html

Those could be coming to us, if The Powers That Be had Their way.

CAN the United States do, today, what Canada has been doing for a month? I wonder and it will be interesting to see. I doubt we can get enough people to form a consensus.

Once we were the beacon of Freedom, always there to stand up for what is right. Now? Not so much.

A large portion of our population can't get out of Mommy's basement except to go to their local "dispensary" for the ingredients of another blunt or to the liquor store for another bottle. They don't look up from their phones to see what's going on around them and so they only know what the media and social media on their phones tell them. Everything revolves around "feel good" and "comfortable".

The truth makes them uncomfortable so it is ignored by most, ridiculed by some but nowhere actually acknowledged. Their "truth" is whatever makes them feel good.

And so many of them have no real appreciation for what true Freedom really is. Freedom is scary. It requires personal responsibility and effort while today's "leadership" is offering no responsibility, for your actions OR your existence. Just go along. No conflict, no tension, nothing uncomfortable.

Their phone tells them that Biden won the election fair and square. The idea that the election was brazenly stolen makes them uncomfortable and their phones and internet tell them it's all a big lie so, relax, take a hit, have a drink and laugh at the Conspiracy nuts.

Their phones tell them there is a deadly virus that can be eradicated by masks and experimental drugs. Ok. Those nutcase alarmists who see danger signs make them uncomfortable. Our Government and the Governments of the world wouldn't deliberately cause unnecessary death, nor do They ask us to do anything not in our best interests. Just Trust Them. "Pay NO attention to those nuts over there. Your phone and Social Media tell you everything you need to know". Besides, we all know by now that drugs of one kind or another are the quick fix for EVERYthing.

The bottom line is that, even if a glimmer of what is happening gets past the recreational drug haze, they are not alarmed because they have internet, a phone and dope along with the Government financed free time to indulge in the three. Everything is FINE! No worries!

Over 250 years ago, a few people, yearning for real freedom, began defying the most powerful country in the world. Those men who founded the United States of America risked everything in order to design a truly free country and a Government by the people and for the people. They led the way and became the "Shining City On the Hill".

For 250 years, the United States has been the true beacon of Freedom in the world and the true leader of all free people.

We have fallen down on that job over the last few years.

But, take heart. Another group of people, another Free country has picked up the Title of Liberty. As we sit here today, the flag at the head of the continuing fight for freedom is no longer the Stars and Stripes. It's the Red Maple Leaf.

What started out as a few pissed off Truck Drivers has turned into a massive movement, involving everyone in Canada. When you watch videos of the convoy, the number of trucks and cars going down the road is impressive. But, more impressive is the THOUSANDS of Canadians standing by the roadside, waving flags and cheering; sitting in their cars and honking back at the Truckers. You can't look at those videos and think that many Canadian citizens have any love for the oppression we all are feeling today.

We'd ALL better join in, wherever we are, and begin to take back our countries.

The U.S. with vaccine and mask mandates, runaway illegal immigration and Government over reach in so many ways. We'd better all stand up and put a stop to it.

Australia, with such draconian Covid restrictions and even Covid Concentration camps! You folks had better get control of your government before they totally control you!

Let's use the Canadian example...the New Shining City on the Hill, and get to work!

What will we miss?



Sitting here this morning, thinking some long thoughts

I've always joked that, genetically, I wasn't going to see 60 but here I am, 61. Outlived most of my Hathaway ancestors, my Dad, my Uncle...It's just a few cousins and myself at this point and I got to thinking about what is important in these last years of my life.

Which also made me realize that we all, right now and from minute one, are enjoying the Last Days of Our Lives! Maybe, the last minutes or seconds. None of us knows. Maybe we will live a long time and then experience our bodies wearing out and slowly fading away...the place I find myself. Or, you might get hit by a stray bullet from down the street right now, while you're reading this!

When I leave this worn out old body and move on, through the veil and into a spirit life, what might I miss the most? My body hasn't been banged up or broken. It's just wearing out and getting tired. Nothing dramatic. Just that I'm smart enough to know that there are only a few years ahead of me, if that. So, can a spirit feel physical things? My understanding is that we cannot. That was one of the main purposes of our life here on Earth; to enjoy the experience of living in a physical body. So, what's important to me physically? How about you? Tell us in the comments what you think.

Hugs. That tingly feeling of having someone you love and who loves you tightly hold you in an embrace. I think your spirits talk during those moments. Such a simple thing but rates right up there at the top of things I'm guessing spirits can't do without bodies. Speaking of hugs; that soft fluffy cat, purring in my arms. Their spirits and mine can talk just as well and I know they do.

Food. Bacon, chocolate, steak, spaghetti, cake and cookies. A good hot cup of coffee in the morning to wash down the pancakes that are covered with my own raspberry jam. As a fat cook, I could go on and on about things I'll miss eating.

A cool breeze softly sweeping over my face, ruffling my hair and then sighing it's way through the pines. Sunshine on my shoulders! That sudden shock of the cold water as I dive into the Madison River! Cold Montana air with the crunch of subzero temperature snow under my feet. Coming from outside in the super cold and into a house that's 70 degrees warmer. The smell of woodsmoke.

I remember jogging for miles. It was a chore then. Something I Had to do to keep in fighting shape. Today, I dream of being able to run across the street or race an elevator upstairs...and WIN! Right! Just being able to get in and out of the car without pain would be a step in the right direction today! Or be able to bend over and pick up a coin without having to think it over and decide if that coin is worth the effort.

Maybe such introspection as I'm "enjoying" this morning can help me be a better person. Have I hugged enough? Have I loved enough? How about Joann, my kids, my Ex-wife(?) family and friends...all the other important people in my life? Have I made it clear how much I love them? So there's no question left when I'm not here to answer? I'm not sure. I hope so.


I can tell you this, with no reservation. There IS a Spirit Existence. I've experienced close contact with the Holy Ghost and, whatever questions and doubts I might have about some aspects of the Gospel, I can tell you, absolutely, that God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost exist. There IS another world ahead of us just as there was a Pre-existence behind. Everything in this world was made in Spirit before it was created here on the Earth and we all will return to that existence. You might not believe such things. You might believe these things with your mind but not know them in your heart. I don't just believe. I know. No matter how unfair and tragic I might think parts of my life have been and no matter how much outright anger I might feel at times about it; I can never deny the Peace, Warmth, Serenity and overall Comfort I enjoyed one time. I remember this when I begin to doubt. I remember what it was like to have The Spirit hold me for a few moments. I don't have the vocabulary to describe it. I doubt that many do.

So. Hug your loved ones. Pet your cat. Play with your dog. Eat that ice cream cone! Have a cookie. Sit in the sun while you read a book and listen to the breeze passing through the trees above. Be nice or even helpful to someone you don't know and might never meet again. Enjoy it now as it could be gone in an instant.

If you think it or you feel it, say it..."I Love You".

There ARE Treatments for Covid19!!!


I get so frustrated when someone tells me a story about a friend or family member who has been sick with The Virus. It's been two years now. Treatments ARE out there and thousands of Doctors around the world ARE successfully treating The Virus. It's no secret if you've been paying attention.

Here's just one such source of information, prepared by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. https://aapsonline.org/CovidPatientTreatmentGuide.pdf

You can look at my page at http://cowboyentertainer.blogspot.com/2021/11/covid19-resource-page-especially-for.html for videos and links with more information, all from well credentialed Doctors.


Doctor Peter McCullough

PLEASE!

Maybe this will help someone. Do you know of someone who has tested positive but the Doctors told them they are not sick enough for hospitalization, so "just go home"?

Here. Go read these!

Early treatment is KEY!
