Tango, if you want something to get angry about, how about the over 250,000 deaths a year due to medical mistakes? Or traffic deaths? Or pool drownings? Or farming accidents involving farm equipment? Or the in excess of 100,000 deaths a year to the regular flu?

People die every year from something. You are one step away from the grave, the moment you are born and take your first breath.

I'm not going to sit around, put my life on hold, wring my hands worrying about dying from the Coronavirus. I got things to do, and living to do. Not worrying about dying.

My thoughts now? The virus is real, and people are dying from it. But this virus has been weaponized, and politicized to further an agenda. That simple. The one huge area that Trump has done so well at is the economy, jobs and decreasing unemployment to historically low levels. They couldn't beat with all of their fake investigations, or the phony impeachment, so they are now trying to disrupt the economy, shut down jobs, destroy business' and put as many people on unemployment as possible to defeat Trump from getting re-elected.

I also think it's a test, to see just how much of our rights and freedoms they can infringe upon before we say enough.

Also, you keep on with the "wear a mask" as if that is going to prevent anyone from getting CV19? Unless a mask is medical grade, made to prevent particles the size of a virus, then it serves no purpose in wearing one. Is your mask medical grade for the prevention of a virus? Plus, I will add this, can anyone force another person to wear a particular piece of clothing, and under what authority? Who gave them that authority? And trying  to enforce such an "order" they are going to fine or jail people? Really?

So yes, it is about rights, and our freedoms. Some of us are willing to say enough of the bullshit, and dare someone to force us to do something they have no right to enforce in the first place.

Think about this. The Nazi's first started making the Jews in Europe wear a Star of David on their clothing, to identify them as Jews. Then they forced them to wear a number tattooed on the arms. Then they forced them into the gas chambers and the ovens.

No sir, no one is going to force me to wear anything! And it will get mighty bloody for anyone trying.

However your local stihl dealer can assist you in procuring one made just for you.

What I'm seeing is that there are more cases being reported as being positive. Stands to reason, if you are doing more testing, then it's likely to show more positive cases for CV19. That's not a mystery that I can see. But here's the important part, death rates are decreasing or stabilizing, not increasing. If the opposite were happening, then I could see cause for concern.

We have been lied to repeatedly about the number of positive cases for CV19 as well.

Here's another perspective to ponder on. All of these protests that were going on all across the nation, and many of them were not wearing masks, and they sure weren't "social distancing" either, but where are the huge number of deaths from CV19 from that? Didn't happen.

I still got part of one of those huge steaks left. I'm going to reheat it under the oven broiler, make some french fries and garlic toast to go with it for dinner tonight. Might even crack a cold beer to go along for the ride!

Heard about this earlier this morning. Sad indeed. Great musician, songwriter, patriotic and proud American, and vocal supporter of the 2nd Amendment, and gun rights.

He will be missed.

Not clear on this. Are you wanting to know where you can buy one, or looking for suggestions on an aftermarket trigger assembly?

Spent a little bit of time this morning planting a new flagpole, and got some new flags for it this afternoon.

..The one that is left, has to be close to, or maybe even over 60 years old..

the Crepe Myrtle or your grandmother ?

The crepe myrtle of course! Granny passed about nine years ago and was 92. She did love those crepe myrtles though.

Your crepe myrtle is quite beautiful BTW.  :th_thicon_idea:

The small flower bed in front of the small brick wall, a very nice touch. I like it a lot.  :rocknroll2:


Burgers again tonight, with tater tots, macaroni salad, and oven roasted vegetables from the Dad's garden. And a couple of cold Corona beers!  :rocknroll2:

If you have lots of fence lines, or areas that you want to spray, they are very handy and will save you lots of time.

We just sprayed several of the pastures for goat weeds a few weeks ago.

Crepe myrtles are some beautiful trees or bushes, depending on how they are kept trimmed. They are very slow growing though, but last for many years. My grandmother had some in here front yard that were very old. The one that is left, has to be close to, or maybe even over 60 years old.

I sure miss baseball.  :th_thicon_cry:

I picked up an old 2hp electric motor from over at my father's barn the other day. Got it cleaned up and wired up a power cord and it works great.

Going to use it to build a 2x72 belt sander. Got another electric motor that I plan on using for building a band saw.

I have been re-watching the NetFlix series "Frontier". They are supposedly coming out with season 4 pretty soon.

I also started watching the NetFlix series "Hannibal". Based off the movies in some part about Hannibal Lector. So far it's pretty danged good.

I did some burgers last night with french fries, and macaroni salad.

Did some freaking huge steaks the other night with baked potatoes, and garlic toast.

And another for Alte!  :th_thicon_idea: :rocknroll2:

Crepe's are incredibly cool trees, and are gorgeous when they bloom.  We have about 6, unfortunately 4 are planted a few feet from Juniper's that are overgrown by the Junipers.....

Which I'm still waiting for DCD, Axxe or Shield to show up one night and cut the Junipers down :)

I do hope my ex-wife is enjoying the crepe myrtles I planted about twenty five years ago. They were about 4' tall when I planted them. I might take a ride by there one day and see just how tall they have gotten.
