Coconut Oil

I bought some Expeller Pressed Coconut Oil last week and tasted it for the first time. It is awful! Tastes just like 30w motor oil. Anyone else tried it and found the taste is simply bad?

North Korea a Serious Situation

It reminds me of the Cuban Missile Crisis, it was a very serious situation then. We were dealing with sane people back then, but today the NoKo leadership are full blown nut cases.

We also find out today that NoKo has 10-20 miniature nuke warheads that can be delivered by their current missiles with the ability to reach the east coast. And don’t forget NoKo has subs that can deliver nukes. If we were issued an attack warning we would have only minutes till detonation.

If an EMP attack were to happen and it was only 25% as devastating as suggested it could be, we will as a country lose millions of citizens and the country may never recover from just one let alone multiple targets.

I suggest we review our preps now and restock accordingly with food, water, camping gear and plenty of propane for cooking and water sterilization.

Below are two links to articles about EMP that are located in my sidebar. Worth your time to review.

Geezer Truths

1. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong. 

3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger. 

4. There is a great need for a sarcasm font. 

5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet? 

6. Was learning cursive really necessary? 

7. Map Quest or Google Maps really need to start their directions on # 5.  I'm  pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood. 

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died. 

9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired. 

10. Bad decisions make good stories. 

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day. 

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blu-Ray?  I don't want to have to restart my collection... again. 

13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to. 

14. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call. 

15. I think the freezer deserves a light as well. 

16. I disagree with Kay Jewelers.  I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Light than Kay. 

17. I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option. 

18. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger. 

19. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said? 

20. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front.  Stay strong, brothers and sisters! 

21. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever. 

22. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time, while half asleep. 

23. The first testicular guard, the "Cup," was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important. (Ladies .. Quit Laughing! )

It just gets better as you get older, doesn't it? 

I was in a Starbucks Coffee recently when my stomach started rumbling and I realized that I desperately needed to fart.  The place was packed, but the music was really loud so to get relief and reduce embarrassment I timed my farts to the beat of the music.  After a couple of songs I started to feel much better.  I finished my coffee and noticed that everyone was staring at me.  I  suddenly remembered that I was listening to my IPod (with ear piece) - and how was your day? 

(This is what happens when old people start using technology!)

 I Would Like To Add One.

At What Point-In-Life Do We Become "OLD PEOPLE" ? It seems like I've been "Middle Aged" most of my life!

Changes to my Side Bar Categories

I’m going to make a couple changes to the category side bar.

One will be the deletion of several sailing blogs. For me and where I live, a sailboat would make a great Bug Out Vehicle (BOV) and for anyone else who has easy access to the oceans.
Reading sailboat blogs are fun and makes me want to join them, so as I came across other interesting sailboat blogs I added them. Suitable BOV live aboard sailboats such as 30 to 39 feet costing $25,000 to $80,000 are comfortable to live on but the maintenance is very expensive. Some who live and sail on this size of boat claim they were on a tight budget but actually didn’t have a budget. They have plenty of money so that rules out their thoughts as Preppers! Another blog features an upgrade from a tired 37-foot boat to a $500,000 catamaran! Oh sure, budget my butt!

Just a note; if I were to be a liveaboard on a 39-foot sailboat the local marina charges $400 a month plus electric for the docking. It includes Wi-Fi, bath house and laundry facilities.

I will keep three Sailing Blogs because they are green start-up sailors and reading them will show you what they have gone through from the very beginning of their adventure if you’d like to have a sailboat BOV:

“Zero to Cruising”
“Life on The Hook”
“Mid-Life Cruising”

If you want to keep reading the others, you’ll have to copy their address and save them for yourself. Next week I’ll make the deletions.


I also added another category “Opinion Blogs”:
Warning the language can be strong! These blogs as I add them, are ticked off Patriots and vent their feelings.
