Vienna Sausage Recall

 Conagra recalls nearly 2.6 million pounds of canned meat and poultry

That is a lot of vienna sausage. For those of you who don't like or eat the stuff it won't be a problem.

I happen to like vienna sausage, mainly for a snack item, and so I will be careful of which cans I purchase now.

I prefer the original style, not the flavored ones.

But if you purchased this as a food prep item I think it would be prudent to check your cans.

I was looking for a sign

 I was looking for a sign, but instead I found hats. I ordered this one:  PureBlood Hat

They have quite a few different color, I chose the camo.

There also are t-shirts for the t-shirt wearers out there. I don't wear them anymore except to sleep in.

But I am still looking for a yard sign if anyone knows of a store that sells them.

I think it's Monday

Befor the chinese spy balloon we had Lawnchair Larry

 Lawnchair Larry flight

There have been quite a few have done this, but I think maybe this guy was the first.

I remember hearing about this on the news at the time. And thinking what a dumb mothereffer.

But whatever floats your boat I guess. Or in this case lawnchair.

Can you imagine being in a commercial airliner, look out your window and see a guy in a lawnchair? Maybe he's giving you a thumbs up sign.

Holy smokes, visions of william shatner and the monster on the plane come to mind.

I don't have the means to step up and buy one anymore. Can one of you guys buy one and say I did it?

 

Ask Ian: .223 vs 5.56 and "Military Grade Ammo"


This is an interesting video.  If you have ever had questions about the difference between 223 and 556 ammunition I believe this video will answer those questions.

There is a smattering of other stuff not related to 223 or 556 also.

Hope you enjoy. Keep up with your preps.

Chemtrails are real.

 Aluminum Snow: Lab Test Confirmed

This article contains a video that is pretty damn scary, at least to me.

Chemtrails are real. Have you ever looked up in the sky and saw a white vapor trail from an airplane? Notice how it slowly dissipated?

Not chemtrails. Those suckers last forever. I used to point out the chemtrails to my customers and tell them that our government or someone was spraying SOMETHING into the air. The trails did not dissipate at all, they just hung there in the sky for hours.

Many of my customers did not believe me. 

Somewhere in this blogosphere there used to be a commenter or a blogger who said he was a chemtrail mechanic, and showed pictures of the inside of the plane. I wonder if he is still around and can shed some light on this.

Have Some Elvis Presley This Morning!

🤣The Old Lady And The Luxurious Hotel - BEST CLEAN JOKES | Funny Daily J...

gowise company still sucks

Update: got an email from the "manager". She offered me to buy a new inverter for a 20% discount. I don't know how clueless one person can be.

 Emailing back and forth proves this company is a pisspoor company to do business with.

All the asshole would say is we don't encourage customers to open the part and we don't sell parts anyway.

I asked where do I get it repaired. His reply was take it to a hardware store somewhere.

I asked for a wiring diagram, and oh no we can't provide that.

I don't have any social media so this is my only outlet for telling people how screwed up gowise is.

Waiting for a phone call from the manager though I kept requesting the company president. If I ever find a phone contact for him I will call.

I swear the only accountability these days is the bullet box.

Stay away from gowise. They are bad juju.

Well, that is certainly a relief.

 Watch: Biden Says "More Than Half The Women In My Administration Are Women"

That is an absolute relief to me, cause I think we're gettin a little topheavy with the trans people.

I mean every day they add more of em.

All you gotta do is pull the trigger

 

Do you think it is delivering the big guys 10%???

 Pentagon Refuses To Shoot Down Suspected Chinese Spy Balloon Hovering Over Montana for Days

If the united states government thinks this thing is a chinese device, why wouldn't our government take steps to neutralize this thing?

That IS what the united states government is supposed to do, is it not? Protect our country from foreign infidels??

Apparently the concern is to not hurt civilians. Maybe they know it's got a nuke inside and don't want to detonate it locally. Or maybe eric swalwell got a deal with fangfang to sell out montana. 

Who the heck knows with these socialist/fascist/nazistic/craptastic bastards in fed gov.

GoWise Company Sucks

 In a previous post i reviewed an inverter I had purchased from GoWise company.

I emailed tech support on a problem I am having with the inverter, and asked for their help to troubleshoot the problem. 

Here is their last email to me: It does seem like the temperature sensor could be the issue but we don't sell any part for this unit. Because everything is internal we don't encourage customers to open it, for safety reasons and because of this, we don't have any troubleshooting tips on our part. I'm sorry that I was not able to help. Please let us know if there is something else that we can help you with and have a great day. 

Can you believe it? A company that sells stuff, expensive stuff, but won't sell repair parts for it? How stupid is that? 

If I could get a wiring diagram I could take it to an electronics shop for repair. 

I recommend people stay far away from this company. They sell other products such as air fryers and blenders.

Based on the complaints I read they like to play games with you and never resolve your complaint.

Fuck em.

Good Morning, HeeHaw!

Best Explanation of Taxes I Have Ever Seen. Saw??

Well, this is just plain stupid

 Scientists Create Liquid-Metal Robot, Apparently Haven’t Seen Terminator 2

 "Science is cloning organs, making meat in a lab, creating hyper intelligent robots with human emotion, and in a move I think we all know ends poorly, have been injecting human brain cells into monkeys."

When will the human race learn? Never, apparently.

You think this is like a movie where a million years from now in a galaxy lightyears away the inhabitants of a planet receive a signal from earth that says "Resistance is futile?"

More on my middle class tax refund debit card. And other stuff.

 

when people are really screwing up an activity that should be fairly straight forward.
You see the way those guys are fixing my car?
Ya, what a clown show.
by MexicoSean March 17, 2005

That's the way i feel about this tax refund bullshit. This should have been a straightforward operation. Send me a check for the money you stole from me and I will deposit that into my checking account.

Easy peasy japanesy.

But no. I told you about my hassle to get the first six hundred of it back. That was thursday or friday of last week.

So yesterday, monday, i drove down to the local credit union atm to get the rest of my money back. Got a hundred left on the debit card. Okay. ATM says $2.50 fee. I click okay. It asks me how much money I want? I say 100 dollars.

Well fuck me runnin the goddamn machine says sorry insufficient funds. I could have got 80 bucks for a 2.50 fee and left about 7.50 on the card. Fuck that. 

So i spent about 5 bucks in gas to drive to the nearest credit union where they gave me the full one hundred bucks with no fee. WTF???

Got the money though. So while in town i drive over to America Tire Depot to get tire prices. Find out they are now Big Brand Tire. Never heard of em.The tires on my 99 dakota are cracking badly, and the outside of the front tires are slick. Due to my not rotating the tires often enough. As in never. Maybe a steel cord showing here and there.

Guy looks up the tires, says i got em for $164 each. My eyebrows sprang skyward when i heard that price. He printed out the deal for me, and I looked at it, looked at him, looked at it, looked at him, said thank you and left. 

Out the door price tires accessories alignment(for $115 bucks used to be 85) total was $1061.

Ho Lee Fuck. Didn't realize tires had gone up that much. I would like to sell the truck, but with bad tires on it i can't get my asking price of $2500.

So my new game plan is to drop back ten and punt. I am contemplating having body work done on the truck and a new paint job. 

Maybe having a shop my grandson knows and trusts replace the intake manifold gaskets, and a couple of the injectors. I can't do that work right now due to reasons.

If I get it painted i won't be so embarrased to have my wife be seen in it. As for me I like my trucks to look nasty. But she don't.

More inverters to review

 Here are a couple more inverters I can review.

Harbor Freight Jupiter 2000 watt modified sine wave inverter. I highly recommend this inverter. I used one of these for almost a year with zero problems. If you get one and it's a lemon, let me know and I will quit recommending it. 

But the one I got was great. Never let me down a single time. I used it off and on to run a fridge and an upright freezer in my garage. I say off and on. I had to run an extension cord from the inverter thru my living room to the garage. It was a tripping hazard and I couldn't leave it there all the time. Plus my wife wasn't happy with a cord running thru her house.

I became a pure sine wave inverter snob. That's why I quit using the modified sine wave unit. I am now a pureblood, and can't be bothered with the commoners. 

Plus I did a lot of reading and discovered modified sine wave inverters can potentially cause damage to electronics. And I didn't want to have to buy a new fridge and upright freezer. One thing I noticed was the light inside the fridge flickered. Open the door and if you were prone to seizures this might have triggered one.

But, on a sidenote, I used 300 watt and 750 watt modified sine wave inverters to power my laptop computer in my truck for approximately 20 years without issue. I would power up the unit in the am and leave it plugged in to the inverter while just sitting in the seat waiting to be used. Then shut it down when I got done for the day. Did no damage I am aware of. And the laptop I am using now I have used since 2011, originally in the truck writing service reports.

While looking up a picture of the jupiter unit, I saw that jupiter now has a pure sine wave inverter made by Jupiter. I might go get one and try it out.

The next inverter I have for review is made by a company called GoWise.  I have not formed a complete opinion of this unit yet. I am leaning toward throw it away and go get the jupiter puresinewave inverter at the moment. 

This is a model PS2001, 3000 watt pure sine wave inverter. Purchased in August 2021 so it is naturally out of warranty. Used very little because I have been lazy and have not run a circuit into my garage I could dedicate solely to this unit. I decided not to hook this up to my AC breaker panel, because the neutrals for the fridge plug are tied into all of the other neutrals, in the attic. And I am too lazy to climb into the attic and separate them. Looks like I am just plain lazy.

A big thing I do not like about this unit is the display. It has a power display status in bars. Which does not tell me how much power the unit is drawing. The Giandel 4000 watt unit I reviewed has a display which shows battery supply power in volts, and it also will display the power output in watts. Nice. This GoWise unit display in bars is not very useful in my opinion.

But in any event I have been running a short length of led lights from this unit to light my "patio" area. Pulls much less than one watt of power. Then one day the unit shut off on high temperature and the cooling fans run all the time.  It was only about 70 F that day. 

I have periodically turned this unit back on and the cooling fans run continuously even on the coldest days of 32F we have had. Never shut off. Well, I heard them shut off and then immediately restart. The unit supplies good clean 120 vac power at 60Hz, just this little problem.

I emailed the company in Arizona, and got a reply email but I am uncertain if I will continue. I gave them the age and out of warranty status of the unit, and asked for tech support help to troubleshoot the unit, but the first thing they asked for was proof of purchase???

WTF???

So, for the moment, I cannot recommend this unit.



The last unit i will review is the Giandel 1200 watt pure sine wave inverter. I purchased this unit August 7 of 2021 before I purchased the above GoWise unit. My reasoning for purchasing this unit was price. I did not want to spend another 4 to 5 hundred dollars on another inverter. The wifely unit was giving me the old hairy eyeball.

This Giandel 1200 watt unit did not do the job for me at all. I guess it was just plain too small, which i guess is my fault. I had measured the watt draw of the fridge and the freezer when they ran together and I also measured the startup wattage draw of the two when they started together,( I don't remember the wattage draw number, but it was much less than 2400 watts the unit is rated for at surge) and I thought the 1200 watt continuous 2400 watt surge power would work fantastic to power my fridge and upright freezer. 

Boy, was I wrong. The first time I plugged the two units into this inverter, it squealed like a stuck pig and shut off. Subsequent tries had the exact same result. 

So I uninstalled the unit and shipped it back to amazon, and purchased the above green ugly monstrosity.

I cannot recommend this 1200 watt Giandel inverter.



I hope this review has been helpful to you. If you have questions please email me at fredhorn37@gmail.com

Like spoiled children, liberals never give up when they want something

 And here’s how the left sees pickup trucks:


Now the Left Is Coming for Your Pickup Trucks, America

Pickups have evolved greatly over the years. The first ones I can remember were full sized pickups at the time. Smaller than the midsize pickups we have now.

And absolutely dwarfed by the socalled full size pickups we have now. But in my opinion there has never been a more useful tool ever made.

I mean so much can be done with these things. I mean, you can easily get laid in one of these. And you can also, uh, well, that pretty much takes up my repertoire of things to use them for.

Monday. Again.

 





Fertilizer Shortage Puts World On Verge of Food Crisis

That may or may not be true. 

For the few people that read this blog and others, there will NOT be a food shortage. We know how to plan prep grow food for survival.

For billions of others around the world, I don't know that the status quo will change. They are too stupid to feed themselves and they will probably stay that way no matter how much fertilizer is produced. It might be a good thing if they went away.

I guess most people in the world might go hungry. But there are millions upon millions who will not because they are self reliant, not reliant upon government to do it for them.

And there are millions upon millions of people so reliant on government they can't wipe their own ass. Those are the ones who will starve and riot and kill good people. I call those people democrats.
