Got my 2nd vaccination -Thank you President Biden.

h said...

Something that made my life better (to my surprise). I had been getting 10-15 calls a day from a place called "800 Service". And there was never anyone replying to my answered calls. So I'd answer and hang up. Ultimately I was so annoyed I wen to "Do not Call Registry" at FTC. You need to be registered 30 days before you can submit ac complaint. But (since I'd been registered for more than 30 days) I began to submit complaints. These calls came from various (similar) numbers, and I submitted 4 or 5 complaints on Friday. Then (REMARKABLY!!) on Saturday I received zero calls.

Mr. Pants now has his ham radio license (the extra level which is extra cool and took a lot of study, as I gather) so I now have a big HAM sticker on our (actually my) truck and also a huge antenna which bangs around in drive throughs. He literally just said to me “is it ok if I string some speaker wire in the trees in the backyard?” sigh. I’m glad he’s found a fun hobby and everyone wants the radio guy during the squirrel eating times but I’ve enabled the creating of a monster.

Humperdink said...

Of the three, which two vaccinations did you get?

Mutaman at 7:07: You mis-spelled TRUMP. I'm sure it was just a typo.

Why are you thanking Biden? The only thing Trump's done that he hasn't cancelled, and you think he deserves credit? Why not thank Biden for keeping kids in cages, too, while you're at it.

Recall Robert Mueller's testimony before the House Intelligence Committee in July 2019. Mueller was befuddled when describing the contents of his report. He looked lost, vacant, and otherwise confused. It was as though someone else was in charge. *cough*

JaimeRoberto said...

Of course we should thank Biden for the vaccine. What do you think he was doing in the basement all that time?

A friend who has been in a nursing home for several years was able to visit his granddaughter for the first time in over a year yesterday.

Thank you President Trump.

"Mutaman said...

For finally allowing you to have it, when his people held up the approval process, paused it and restarted it the day after the election, when lo and behold, it was discovered that they had had the data to approve it all along? That President Biden.

I have to wonder if you are a right wing plant just to make your side look worse.

Joe Smith said...

"Say something mean about us, we'll twitter you into a bloody pulp"

I don't care if they are generals, those cocksuckers work for us...we pay their goddamn salaries.

We had ham for dinner tonight. On biscuits.

Yancey Ward said...

My spreadsheets for those that are still following the COVID data:

US Data
Individual State Data

Because the COVID Tracking Project decided the pandemic was over, or the data was too politically inconvenient, they stopped collecting the data in useable formats on the 7th of this month, so I had to change data sources on the 6th to the WorldoMeters site. Because the cumulative data doesn't completely match, I spliced the data on the 6th where the increments for that day are the last data I took from the COVID Tracking Project, but the cells with cumulative data are switched over to the new source. The trends won't be affected very much by the switch over- the biggest differences were for New York state, California, Texas, Iowa, and Hawaii, so those states have data splices, too- all the other states data was almost identical in the two sites, so discontinuities don't really exist.

Overall, cases are declining slowly. As I wrote a couple of weeks ago, the base is going to be the false positive rate. Right now the daily positive rate is around 3-4%, and the false positives are probably not a whole lot lower than that, though it is possible that with Biden now safely installed in the White House closet, the testing companies have started using more realistic cycle counts for the RT-PCR tests to eliminate nearly all false positives.

As always, you are free to copy my sheets and do with them what you want. The states are updated on a 3 day cycle, so the next update is tomorrow night. I will probably keep these updated until WorldoMeters stops collecting the data, and I don't how long they will continue to do that with Trump gone.

Yancey Ward said...

Daylight Savings Time starts tonight! More sunlight in the evening for the next 8 months. Thank you, President Biden!

tim in vermont said...

You know that base rate fallacy only comes into play when they are randomly testing without looking at symptoms. Oh, I forgot, examining your own assumptions isn’t something that you do.

Humperdink said...

Stuffed turkey, 3 bean casserole, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, rolls, white cake with chocolate icing and ice cream today for my birthday. Had the kids and grandchildren over for the event. Decided not to wait until July 4th to have a gathering. Stick it in your ear pResident Biden.

Yancey Ward said...

The giant pile (like 4 inches high!) of dogshit that a neighbor's dog left on our lawn finally dissolved away in the rain yesterday. Thank you, President Biden!

Yancey Ward said...

Tim, they don't look at symptoms for everyone, you jackass. If you are a contact trace and test positive, you are asked to quarantine and are counted as a case. Did you not know this?

Yancey Ward said...

The colleges test everyone on campus randomly, and all positives are asked to quarantine and are counted as cases. Did you not know this?

Humperdink said...

Gasoline prices going through the roof. Thank you pResident Biden!!

Yancey Ward said...

You go into a hospital for any procedure, you are tested, and if you test positive, you are treated like a COVID infectee and are counted as a case. Did you not know this?

Yancey Ward said...

In short, if you take the test for any reason and test positive, you are treated as a case and counted as one.

I Have Misplaced My Pants said...

Mr. Bass, oh don't think I didn't think of that.

“Got my 2nd vaccination -Thank you President Biden.”

Getting mine on the 28th, thank you President Biden! I can’t wait for the rest of my family to be vaccinated, should happen by May if not before. Looking forward to the entire family gathering for Memorial Day at the lake.

Yancey Ward said...

In fact, it is probable that a person who gets a positive test with no symptoms is a false positive. What is the percentage of people with positive tests who didn't have symptoms? You tell me. I read about such people all the time, and have done so since last Spring.

Inga: “I love the way the USMC came down on the wimpy F/Tucker Carlson.”

I am sure you do. As a non American I see it as a childish response and a worrying one from an organization that is supposed to be neutral. The marines just pissed away some respect for no reason. Ignoring things is allowed and often best.

Gahrie said...

Inga: Yes, that was Yancey. But even worse was when he said, when the discussion was two weeks lockdown, that it wasn’t worth even two weeks lockdown to protect old people who would likely die of flu anyway.

Mutaman said...

"You're an asshole. "

Eloquently put Robespierre.

Rt41Rebel said...

My fiancee and I have decided to forgo the vaccine for now. This isn't an antivax position, it's a decision based on risk. More importantly, I'd like to think that by paying my vaccine forward, I am able to improve the life of some poor soul that is cowering in their basement right now. I'm just that kind of guy.

Inga said...

Ken, the Marines stand by their women members. A red cheeked chubby faced Fox News commentator who never spent one day in the military gets blow back from the military who he insulted. So damn what and good for the USMC.

Did you know that New Year's Day used to be in the middle of March?

It was only a few hundred years ago that they changed it to January 1 in the English-speaking world.

Well, it has been announced that it is being changed again to January 20. And they are also resetting the year. It is now Year Zero.

History begins anew.

Yes, a second round of self-incriminating impeachments, but the Democrats and Republican sympathizers are still [politically] viable. I guess you can abort the baby, cannibalize her profitable parts, sequester her carbon pollutants, and have her, too.

Shouting Thomas said...

There's something remarkable going on here.

The same tactics the Democrats used for three years, the Russia collusion hoax, are now off limits to Republicans.

Democrats claimed the 2016 election was stolen, that Trump was an agent of a foreign government, that he took bribes from foreign governments and that he used and abused prostitutes.

Now, any mention of that in respect to Democrats and Hunter Biden is treason and wild conspiracy theorizing.

Inga, in fact, committed this same treason against the Trump administration for 3-1/2 years.

Inga said...

“Lots of "committed Lefties " actually served in the military -JFK, McGovern , Beau Biden, Duckworth, Gore, Kerry. ect,ect
Unlike Mr Bonespurs and his kids.”

Indeed they did and they still do.

Shouting Thomas said...

Yes, and those committed lefties are often deliberately undermining the institution that employs them.

The same thing is happening in the churches, particularly the Protestant and Episcopal churches.

Committed leftist clergy seize control of churches and then destroy the fundamental principles and rituals of the churches.

In the churches, the congregation simply walks out leaving the clergy to milk an endowment and use their salary for political activism, while preaching to an empty room.

I have the feeling something very similar is happening in the military.

Shouting Thomas said...

Inga is obviously a traitor by her own definition.

She participated in the Russia collusion hoax.

Narr said...

If not for committed Lefties in the military, who will rat out the non-committed non-Lefties, after all?

It has been strange seeing my ex-hippie antiwar anti-establishment old friends (many of them) turn into slobbering admirers of the Organs of State Security, from the arrogant and incompetent FBI and CIA to the wasteful and barely competent armed services, who are being turned into another weapon against the people when they're not being hired out like Hessians to Muslim thugs.

Narr
As principled Lefties used to say, "Come Home, America"

Shouting Thomas said...

@Narr

Those committed lefties (at least a sizeable number of them) are members of the Long March, sabotaging the institution from within.

Inga is right. The lefties love the military. How else would FDR, Truman, JFK, LBJ have been able to start their big wars?

This is much truth in what you say, ST.

For Greg the class traitor, and anyone else interested-- what's up with Islam? Is it a great faith going through a tough patch or just a ragbag of shitty ideas cooked up by a loon and maintained by force and fraud.

For my money it's clearly the latter, and the sooner it disappears the better; at least the A/atheist Chinee seem to value some of Western elite and high culture, which is more than can be said for the followers of the Prophet.

Shouting Thomas said...

We are only required to respect elections and our institutions when Democrats own them.

At least senile old fart, Inga, is finally admitting that Biden is senile.

However, she spent all day trying to distract from Glenn Greenwald's testimony about how that senility was hidden from the American people by turning the discussion to Greenwald's political affiliation.

How did the Democrats hide Biden's senility, old senile fart, Inga?

Russia Collusion Dead Ender Truther Inga:
"Ken, the Marines stand by their women members. A red cheeked chubby faced Fox News commentator who never spent one day in the military gets blow back from the military who he insulted."

Except not a single word of that is what happened.

Inga cant help but lie again.

Carlson noted that while the ChiComs have accelerated their weapons systems readiness and modernization programs and are becoming even more aggressive in the Pacific/China Sea theatres, the ChiCom Joe Biden military leadership team is emphasizing woke policies and flight suits for pregnant military members and a big program to pay for gender reassignment surgery and racialist training programs and saying our pregnant members will be valuable combat assets.

Which is moronic beyond words...but serves the left's goals of rotting the military from the inside out.

The most amusing feature of Inga's lie about Carlson?

Inga never served a day in uniform and the say after Trump was elected she called every Trump voter a treasonous traitor..and Trump carried the active abd retired military member vote.

Inga also called 33-year decorated combat veteran Gen Flynn a russian spy.

Inga also attacked the service of Navy SEAL warfare qualified MO Gov Greitens.

You would think a qualified nurse would instinctively understand that pregnant women in front line combat roles is not a combat advantage, but when the democratical Politburo issues a pronouncement, the Inga's all fall into line.

Drago said...

Ken B: "Inga
It's childish and petty and it looks like whoever has control of the Twitter account is using the prestige of the Marines for a private purpose. That's a form of corruption. Your defense of it is unthinking."

The use of that public official Marines twitter account to engage in domestic politics and attack political opponents and/or American citizens is literally a courts martial level offense.

But this is the line up to which the New American Soviet Party has brought us.

Dont think the lesson of the entire coup crew being rewarded has been lost on some military members.

So far, no comment from Althouse on the $27 million showered on George Floyd's family, before the issue of Officer Chauvin's case was determined and fault established.

I had a hard time understanding that one. Why not at least wait for the civil suit?

Powerline set me straight. The $27 voted by the Minneapolis City Counsel amounts to jury tampering. They've declared Chauvin guilty and dared the criminal jury to say otherwise.

Inga actually is not out of line here. It's entirely possible that a pregnant Marine engaged in a twitter battle against a chubby older white guy.

Inga said...

Speaking of Flynn...

The Army is reviewing a probe from the Department of Defense’s (DOD) internal watchdog into former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s international dealings, a spokesperson for the Army confirmed to The Hill.

In a statement obtained via email, Army spokesperson Col. Cathy Wilkinson said “the Acting Secretary of the Army has received the case from the DoD Inspector General for review."

The review could bring tens of thousands of dollars in penalties against Flynn, according to The Washington Post.

A tweet from an official marine account:

II MEF Information Group
@iimigofficial
Replying to @BerryCrunch24 and @TuckerCarlson
Come back when you’ve served and been pregnant

It’s not just the person tweeting who needs to be disciplined. The real problem is a command structure that has not instilled an understanding that control of that account is a position of trust and power, and that no abuse of that will ever be tolerated. The commanding officer of the Information Group should resign or be fired. I think actually the Commandant should resign.

Ken B said...

Drago
I don’t know the military code but it should be a court martial offense because it’s an abuse of a power. See my earlier comment. The Commandant should resign. Truman would have fired him by now.

Inga isn’t the issue. Much of the marine corps, including generals, feel justified and safe in making overt political attacks on a critic of the president.

Shouting Thomas said...

Inga really represents all that is evil and dangerous about the Democratic Party.

Laws only count when they hold power.

She actually knew all day that the reality that Biden was senile was deliberately censored and repressed, but she claimed that Glen Greenwald was just a partisan hack for testifying to that before Congress.

Ken, it’s disrespectful in the US to write marines with a lower case m. It should be Marines, not marines. I’m not sure if that is the case in Canada, so you can be excused.

They kind of remind me of that old computer game MYST: figure out the puzzle and get another one, and on and on. Was there some big reveal at the end? Did it have an end? I got through maybe two or three of the challenges and got bored.

So, Inga, you have no respect for the law or elections unless you win.

What then?

Yancey Ward said...

"Inga: Yes, that was Yancey. But even worse was when he said, when the discussion was two weeks lockdown, that it wasn’t worth even two weeks lockdown to protect old people who would likely die of flu anyway."

Karen B lying again. I wrote explicitly that the two week lockdown would, (1) not work, and (2) wouldn't be two weeks but would morphed into months or even a year in a lot of places. Right on both counts, wasn't I?

Yancey Ward said...

Show me where lockdowns worked....anywhere? Tennessee hasn't been locked down since the first week of last May, but did better virus wise than states that have been mostly locked down for over a year now.

Get over it, Karens- the lockdowns don't help the situation, nor do the mask mandates- the evidence on this couldn't possibly be more conclusive. We used to be smart enough to know that you don't fucking quarantine the uninfected and that shitty ass cloth masks are worse than nothing at all, but we have gone completely stupid.

Yancey Ward said...

All you idiots have done with the lockdowns is to destroy the local economy in half the country- the half that voted for Biden, and damage it in the rest of the country. All for nothing. Worse, due to the idiocy, millions of people have been forced to delay ordinary medical care- the sorts of care that catch life-threatening illnesses early enough to save people. They will be paying for Ken and Inga's stupidity for the next 5 years as they die much earlier than they would have otherwise. You guys really do have blood on your hands.

Inga calls Gen Flynn, a 33 year distinguished military combat veteran a treasonous traitor and russian spy for over 4 years straight and when that lie is completely exposed she simply moves on to the next smear campaign...all the while lecturing others about respecting military members.

In Inga's defense, she literally cant remember anything she wrote more than 15 minutes ago.

If you want to have some fun with the doltish supposed nurse from Wisconsin, ask her why she claimed Kavanaugh was a rape gang leader and why she spent over a year on Team Avenatti before pretending she did no such thing?

I guarantee she will claim she never even heard of Avenatti and has no idea about any such gang rape charges against Kavanaugh!

She's like a wind up toy.

Then, after that, ask her about the hoax dossier and collusion and watch her scurry away.

By the way, Putin and his cronies are already counting the billions of extra dollars in revenue coming their way thanks to Biden....as are the mullahs in Iran and Biden's buddies in Beijing.

"Yancey Ward didn’t just oppose draconian lockdowns. He opposed testing, he opposed masks, he opposed limits on large events, he opposed believing covid was a mass killer. His model leader is Bolsonaro. Well, look at Brazil."

Lying again, Karen B. Do you really have no shame? I never opposed testing and mask wearing- I opposed mask mandates, and I pointed out the contact tracing using the RT-PCR test also wouldn't be effective once you got beyond the intial first 1000-10,000 cases, and I was right on both counts- masks don't work as anything other than a pacifier, and contact tracing is a joke as demonstrated here, in Europe, and in South America.

I did oppose limits on gatherings for very good reasons- I knew banning them wouldn't work just like lockdowns don't work. Gatherings should have been left open to the discretion of the individual. I favored the initial British plan of allowing the virus to rip through the large part of the population which wasn't in danger of serious illness, while protecting the vulnerable for the 2-3 months this would take, but the British chickened out. I then favored the Swedish approach as the next best approach- don't destroy your economy, don't quarantine people who are not sick. Their approach was right because it recognized the most fundamental fact about the virus- that you couldn't stop its spread, and that it was only dangerous to a pretty small minority of the population.

You keep harping on Brazil- what makes Brazil worse than the US, the UK, France, Spain, Italy, Russia, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Colombia, etc.? What exactly is your point about Brazil being worse? Their results are indistinguishable from that list of countries I just gave you. If Bolsonaro had followed, for example, the draconian policies of the UK- guess what- nothing different would have happened in the virus stats. How do I know this? Because these idiotic policies, all of which you supported, were implemented fully in the UK, and guess what- the UK looks just like Brazil virus-wise.

You are just a fucking idiot, Ken. I didn't realize how stupid you were last year, but your continuing lying about what I believed tells me that the outcomes not turning out the way you wanted has embarrassed you- you were told the interventions would fail, and they did. Just admit that lockdowns didn't work- that masks didn't work. You have no credibility at all, Ken- you were literally wrong about everything to do with the virus- you were wrong about the mortality (so was I, just in the other direction), but worse, you were wrong about the NPIs employed, and you regularly lambasted me for writing that the interventions were pointless and worse. And here we are a year later, and I was right about pretty much everything other than the death toll, and even there I was correct in pointing out that the virus wouldn't kill 2-11 million Americans, and I will probably turn out to be right that the economic damage caused by idiocy like yours will end up killing more people than the virus itself, but that is still to be determined.

Not necessarily. Misrepresenting people's views is pretty much standard M.O. for Ken. It's what he does.

Yancey Ward said...

It is almost like you don't actually look at the data available, Ken. A wide range of government mandated policies were followed by neighboring countries, states, and cities, and yet they all end up in the exact same place in about the same amount of time regardless of what they did. That should tell anyone with an IQ above body temperature that the policies themselves are irrelevant to the virus' spread and mortality.

You keep writing that I wanted old people to fend for themselves. Find a direct quote or shut the fuck up. That is the challenge. I wrote multiple times about how to protect nursing homes, hospitals, and old people in their homes- I wrote all of this even before the end of last March. I wrote these suggestions in these very comment threads, and I posted links to them a couple of weeks ago in an overnight thread. I never wrote in any of them that "grandma should fend for herself". This is the sort of blood libel that should embarrass a person if they can't actually support it with a quote and a link. Good luck, if you even dare to try.

narciso said...

Indeed countries that have been in eternal lockdown have been terrible, take peru or bolivia.

narciso said...

You really have done yeoman work with the analytics despite the fluctuating rules yancey.

Yancey Ward said...

I though the very ending of "Fringe" was satisfactory. However, I thought the last two seasons were much weaker than the first three.

Initially, I liked the mythology built in "The X-Files", but I just reach the conclusion around the time Duchovny left the series that the writers didn't really have a plan, and didn't have a way to conclude it. I stopped watching about half way through the first season with Duchovny. I have planned to binge the entire series at some point, but the desire isn't very strong any more. I did watch the first revival season a few years back, but I didn't watch the second one from 2019.

I loved "Counterpart", and was terribly disappointed it was cancelled. Starz has a habit of doing that to me- it cancels the series I like- it did it with "The Rook" and with "Magic City". Syfy does the same thing, and it pisses me off so much I no longer bother watching anything new on either channel.

Yancey Ward said...

That should have been "first season without Duchovny".

narciso said...

Yes that season was week they were trying more of an ensemble feel, the reboot was surprisingly weak considering the circumstances. Largely hamhanded.

Yancey Ward said...

I wish I had started the analytics earlier than I did. I started with the state of Tennessee last May for obvious reasons, and it got easier as my spreadsheet skills got a little better, so I kept adding states. I also regret not doing the entire world, but there are no csv databases where that data is all in one place and accessible via an API, so didn't do it. WorldoMeters had the data on the country level almost all along, but the historic data available only goes back 2 days, and I haven't found anywhere that stored it.

Yancey Ward said...

I just remember how excited I was after the first X-Files movie in 1998. The anticipation for the new television series was so high, and then the season itself just never went anywhere. I kind of lost interest right then and there, but stayed until Duchovny left.

Yes, the reboot was pretty bad- all over the place. It was mainly why I didn't have the energy to watch the subsequent season even though I had all the episodes recorded on the DVR.

Like I wrote, I will eventually get around to binging the entire collection, but not anytime soon.

Speaking of Flynn...

The Army is reviewing a probe from the Department of Defense’s (DOD) internal watchdog into former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s international dealings, a spokesperson for the Army confirmed to The Hill.

In a statement obtained via email, Army spokesperson Col. Cathy Wilkinson said “the Acting Secretary of the Army has received the case from the DoD Inspector General for review."

The review could bring tens of thousands of dollars in penalties against Flynn, according to The Washington Post.


It could- if he's called back to active duty and court martialed AND found guilty. Otherwise, there isn't a damn thing the DoD can do. The chance of a court martial finding him guilty of anything? Essentially zero. If the perfumed princes find a court martial board that will convict him- the verdict will be overturned on appeal. The process is the punishment. For non-crimes not committed.

Gospace said...

Cisco is defending implementing the caste system among Indians it imports via the H1B visa program to replace American workers. Well, officially not to replace them but to do the work they can't find Americans to do. But everyone knows that's a lie. The Hindu American Foundation has weighed in on the matter, apparently because not allowing them to establish a caste system “blatantly violates the rights of Hindu Americans.”. Although the organization vehemently opposes “all forms of prejudice and discrimination, Yeah, right.

When you import large numbers of people from another culture, rather than absorbing your own they bring theirs with them, no matter how repugnant it is.

Bruce Hayden said...

“Daylight Savings Time starts tonight! More sunlight in the evening for the next 8 months. Thank you, President Biden!”

Which means that my two watches will be synchronized again - except that we are in AZ right now, which doesn’t do that nonsense known as Daylight Savings Time. Going to be another month or so before they sync up again, when we head north to MT, which does practice that nonsense.

Two decades ago, when my partner still had her own money, she bought me a nice dress watch. One that an attorney could wear. Have worn it since, except for a short period of time after I got an Apple Watch a year or two ago. The Apple Watch replaced the dress watch, but had to go on the charger every other night. During those periods of time, I was without a watch, and sometimes it would have been nice to be able to see the time. Then inspiration struck - why not wear the dress watch on my non dominant wrist? Sure, every once in awhile I get a comment about it. But as a septuagenarian now, I am allowed to do silly things like that. The remaining problem is that the Apple Watch, hooked to the AT&T cellular system, changes time zones automatically (though it takes about 20 miles going east from Sandpoint going home in MT), while the dress watch has to be manually reset. I didn’t reset it from MDT to MST last fall, and so it has been an hour fast since then. My thoughts are to standardize on MST, which means resetting it next fall, for hopefully the last time.

I do love the Apple Watch. At first, I questioned whether it was worth the price. But now, I am lost without it. After using it to tell time, the next most useful app for me on it is the phone. I can answer or reject calls without digging out my phone, which is handier than I expected. I can do it while driving, or even the shower. That is really only for the three women in my life (daughter, partner, and daughter of partner). With my partner, it works better than not answering when I am in either situation, and then explaining why I didn’t answer her phone call - which I should never do, because something might have happened to her (turnabout is not fair play for her - she routinely loses hers (we have two for her for that reason) or just forgets to plug it in, etc). But that isn’t all. I also, on occasion use it to read text and email messages, look at and search maps, and even set the thermostats through our security system. Should even be able to answer the front door. It also makes finding my iPhone easy. It can do most of what my iPhone does, and almost everything that I actually use the iPhone for (the stuff that the watch can’t do that the iPhone can, I mostly do on an iPad anyway, like reading and writing blog comments). I may hate Apple, but would have a hard time surviving without their well integrated IOS devices.

Bruce Hayden said...

“You guys need to STFU. It has been suggested by our unifying POTUS that if we do what we're told, and we're vaccinated and masked, we might be able to grill hot dogs in our back yard as early as July 4.”

Reminds me. As many of you know, I bought our subdivision last year, consisting of 20 finished (all utilities) lots, acreage for another 20 lots, and maybe another 5 acres too rocky and up and down to build on. There is a big flag on the east end of town, at the ConocoPhillips tank farm, that you see driving in and out of town. Nothing on the west end. Much of that 5 acres is cliffs, including a big one over the highway on the edge of town. Perfect place for a large American flag. With the size of the conifer trees there, the flag is going to have to be pretty big to be visible. My thoughts are to put a flagpole there. My goal, I think, is to get it up by July 4 this year. Was going to get a small mixer for the concrete, but have gotten to know the concrete guy for my garage (who is currently in the process of actually also framing it). Hopefully, if I make it a community flag pole, I can do a deal with him to help. Ran out of time last fall, but did see some 20 foot Trump signs that would wrap around that cliff, and be noticeable by anyone leaving town. Probably put some anchors in at te same time we put in the flagpole.

The "concrete guy" may have occasional loads that don't get used/are only partially used that he needs to get rid of, so if the site is ready he may be able to give it to you for free (likely on short notice), and you would be doing him a favor. I have a diary farmer friend who does that with local construction companies.

Bruce Hayden said...

Heading upstairs for the night, I went through my routine of turning out the lights and making sure all the doors were locked. Noticed that two TV remotes were out. Whoops. Big problem. About every other day I get a call to come fix the TV. It inevitably turns out to be a problem with the remote. Last week the batteries in the AT&T remote were flaking out. But usually, it is because she is using the wrong one. She will be desperately stabbing buttons, and nothing is happening. We are down to only 3 remotes for the downstairs TV: LG for the big TV, Cox for cable, and AT&T for streaming. Tried to cut the cord this year from Cox, because they are thieves, incompetent, and refused to come into the house last April because of COVID-19. CentryLink did come in, so we got Internet, but no cable TV. Finally got Cox in this last November, so now have Internet and cable TV from them, but by then, I had her using AT&T TV streaming over the Internet. So, on the way upstairs tonight, I found the LG remote sitting next to the AT&T remote, and since it is new and shiny, it is likely that I would find her madly punching it’s buttons, if I hadn’t discovered the problem, and solved it effectively hiding that remote over by the TV.

To me, a guy, the whole thing is silly. For me, it is easy. The three remotes look different, and are all marked for what they control: LG for the TV, Cox for the cable box, and AT&T for their streaming box. Different shapes, and different colors too. The problem is that I am a technophile, while she is a technophobe. I have been doing “tech” for better than a half century now. For me, it is straight forward. But it probably isn’t for many. That big TV downstairs has three inputs (Cox cable, A&T streaming, and over-the-air), plus another couple hundred built in LG channels, plus their various applications.

Our Internet is worse: two fiber inputs (CenturyLink and Cox), five WiFi routers, and a 2x3 Ethernet router. The 2x3 Ethernet router load balances and failover of the two Internet fiber links. Each fiber link also has its own WiFi router. Then, there is a free modem that I use for the security system. And finally, two AC2400 dual band routers that I had lying around that I am running as access points (which means that they share SSIDs, and let the 2x3 Ethernet modem do the IP address assignments). Five different WiFi SSIDs visible most of the time - the three WiFi modems, the pair of access points, and a guest account. Plus someone’s Cox modem (hopefully not mine - need to check sometime). None of this means anything to her, at all. She doesn’t even understand that you select an SSID to connect to, then supply a password to get access to the Internet. As I said, 50 years in “tech”, and this all is obvious to me.

What is weird to me is that esp for a lot of women, all this technology makes no sense whatsoever. Not all women - my mother did fine, and my ex has two degrees in CS and one in data communications. Or our daughter - fourth generation with a math degree (plus physics), and a PhD in engineering. It isn’t like my partner is stupid. Far from it. She has maybe the fasted mind I have ever encountered. Photographic memory. Straight As all the way through school. Her expertise though is artistic, and not numerical. She has an uncanny spatial sense when it comes to space planning - accurate to maybe an inch or so, merely by glancing at a room and various things to place there. She can do better by sight than I can with a measuring tape. She sees thousands more colors than I do, and can see how they fit together. Several of her interior designs have been in Architectural Digest. Master cook too. Amazing woman. But still can’t figure out the remotes. And never will. So, I have to make sure that she only ever has one of them.

Thanks for the suggestion. Will follow up on it.

Good guy. Originally, he was only going to pour the foundation. But we got talking, and he offered to put up what I really wanted, instead of what I could buy prebuilt - which means 14’ center door and 16’ ceiling in the middle, and two stories on either side. Finally with good weather, it’s going up fast. Told him I needed to have it done by mid April, so that it will be done before we get back up there, and my partner freaks out with the construction. It’s in the side lot, and she rarely looks out the windows on that side, so will ultimately adapt to it. Out of sight out of mind. But construction noises would remind her.

Being rural MT, we initially bonded by showing off our pocket guns, then our truck guns. That is what people in deep blue cities don’t understand - that gun ownership is a part of life in rural America. I had him beat on truck guns. He just had an ordinary handgun. Large caliber revolver, with bear loads. I had a 10 mm G20, loaded for bear, plus a .300 Blackout AR-15 pistol with a 7.5” barrel.

@Bruce Hayden:

Amazing woman. But still can’t figure out the remotes. And never will. So, I have to make sure that she only ever has one of them.

I laughed reading your description. My father has always been a gadget-obsessed guy, and we always had complicated home entertainment setups that required navigating multiple remotes to function correctly. I was constantly being called into the den by my mother to troubleshoot some minor issue. The "Input" button tended to cause a lot of confusion for some reason. I can't remember how many times I had to reassure her that the VCR could record a channel we weren't watching. She could put an endotracheal tube in someone's throat, a chest tube in their pleural cavity, and perform an emergency C-section but couldn't had trouble tuning into Murphy Brown if someone left the VCR on. Of course, it wasn't that she couldn't learn it; she wouldn't learn it. My father has every streaming service imaginable, but my mother still pays for a cable service, on which she watches only Turner Classic Movies or Investigation Discovery (aka "Murder TV").


p.s. Multiple remotes in 2021 is inexcusable. The Logitech Harmony universal remotes are a little pricey but work very well.

I updated the internal clock on the Drake R8B clock radio. It has to correspond to the local Rush affiliate's clock, though automatically recording Rush so far has lost its use. I'm just hanging on in case Steyn comes back, otherwise don't actually listen. It records without actually going to speakers after I check.

The buttons on the R8B have long stopped working but it has a serial interface that a laptop can use to make settings changes, so the radio persists in its decades-long role.

Of course, the problem is that she won’t learn, another that she can’t learn. I gave up years ago, trying to explain it to her. That is what guys are for, in her mind - to fix technical or mechanical problems.

She discovered TCM this last year, and it is now her favorite. Watched the Maltese Falcon Friday night, when CBS preempted their usual lineup for some ridiculous reason (Friday nights are sacred TV nights - she lovesTom Selleck (when she first met him, he asked her ex how such an ugly guy got such a hot wife) but the new Magnum is not Selleck, the black sidekick is too fat, and Higgins is now a very cute girl). Weekends have cra cra movies on Lifetime, where most often three or so people are killed during the the first 1.75 hours, he or she is finally revealed, there is a violent confrontation, that is violently resolved in the last couple of minutes. Unless Julia Roberts’ brother is the antagonist, as the obsessed doctor, and escapes, to come back in a later Lifetime movie, stalking another woman. And every once in awhile, another dead body or two is snuck in.

“p.s. Multiple remotes in 2021 is inexcusable. The Logitech Harmony universal remotes are a little pricey but work very well”

Looks promising. There appears to be a range of those Logitech remotes, ranging from $53 to $473. The low end ones, at least, apparently have numeric keys. She needs to be able to key in the channel numbers - and that can be a problem when the wrong Input is active. The other day, she could get to CBS, but not NBC. She had the right remote, for once, but NBC had moved from 12-to 13, between ATT and Cox. She is hell on those remotes - apparently figuring that if she keys something in enough times, she will get the program she wants. This means that I don’t get called until she has failed a bunch of times, and is completely frustrated. It doesn’t quite connect with her, that after keying in the same number maybe twice, and not getting the desired response, the problem is probably the number that she is keying in. Doing it 20 more times isn’t going to change the result. Computers don’t work that way. And clearly doesn’t want to hear about them being deterministic.

Love the woman, but amazed sometimes that I still have most of my hair.

How about, learn to blame yourself individually for your fuck-ups, white and black people.

I'm with you on that one, Crack. I often thought of you as a bit of a voice of sanity. You stand out more, now.

“my folks pay a hundred dollars a month for cable. The ONLY two channels they watch are The Weather Channel, and PBS”

Worse here. We have $100 Cox cable and $50 a month ATT streaming (at the time, the only streaming service with numbers on their remotes). Plus another $150 for Internet to support the streaming. My big goal with ATT streaming was to have the same set of channels in both MT (Dish) and AZ (Cox). Currently, she has to relearn channel numbers every six months, which is painful for both of us. Yes, using “Guide” would solve the problem. That is what I do. But she is used to keying in channel numbers, so Guide is out. Voice control would work too. That is even more a non starter.

I should add that channels on Dish can be changed from their iPad App. So, yes, I do, on rare occasion antagonize her a bit when we are in MT, on Dish, by switching the TV she is watching to a different channel. Maybe to a liberal propaganda station like CNN or pMSNBC, or to some “reality” show. She esp hates ones featuring fat people. Or maybe 16 year old mothers. Or marrying felons.

We can't do that - white people created these groups and categories - we're stuck with them, now. The entire "black community" is nothing but the slaves making a culture from the fragments allowed. You're not gonna break that up now. I can travel this entire nation and, based on my cultural upbringing, I'm welcome by blacks as quasi-family. (You hear "Cousins" a lot) It's special. Or, it was until liberals took over. Now it's getting creepy.

In 1995, my wife said she could walk through walls, and got pissed at me when I asked for a demonstration. Whatever she got, has now spread around the world.
