  1. Tornado Information

    Back up to the front! As it is tornado season now.
  2. This is a topic that is missing in this area. So here is some useful info on this subject. More tornadoes happen during the day but more people are killed by them at night. If you live in areas prone to violent storms you should have a emergency weather radio which should be on 24/7. They can be set to alert you during severe weather bulletins. And heed the warnings when given. Because tornadoes can strike at anytime and anywhere. http://www.fema.gov/areyouready/tornadoes.shtm http://www.noaawatch.gov/themes/severe.php http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/brochures/tornado.shtml http://www.smithgear.com/weather-devices-weather-radios.html
  3. Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer

    Well now there is another book out by Carine McCandless called The Wild Truth. I picked it up to read but haven't got to it as of yet.

    28* here this morning. No wind yet. Have had winds out of the north the past few days.
  5. Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer

    McCandless was a smart kid with a lot of emotional issues. He made some real bad choices. There are cabins around there but the park service don't think he did it. There was also a hand rail car to cross the river located not far from there had he just walked in that direction. The bus is a emergency shelter for hunters or anyone traveling in the back country. There will always be unanswered questions for this tragic story. But Krakauer isn't the most honest writer either. He changed the ending in his book from his original one it has been said. I know a guy who is a pilot and has land by there who seen him at the bus quite a few times flying over. I think he never ventured far from the bus so he never got the lay of the land. I truly think had he explored more and found other edible plants and had dried the salmon that run in that river he may have been alive today. He could have easily walked back down the Stampede Trail and gone into Healy and did odd jobs just to make some money for supplies. But he let his pride and stubbornness get in his way. I have read the book and everything else on this subject and seen the movie when it came out in theaters. I also own it on DVD. I don't think he was stupid in any way. I just think he made bad choices due to his stubbornness. There is now a book out of his photos they recovered from his camera.
  6. Heard any good ones lately

    Being popular on Facebook is like sitting at the cool table in a cafeteria at a mental hospital. At breakfast, the husband says to the wife, "What would you do if I won the Lotto?" "I'd take my half and leave you," she says. "Great," he says. "Here's $6. I won $12 yesterday! Stay in touch." I don't like making plans for the day because then the word "premeditated" gets thrown around in the courtroom.
  7. Heard any good ones lately

    A professor of chemistry wanted to teach his 5th grade class a lesson about the evils of liquor, so he produced an experiment that involved a glass of water, a glass of whiskey, and two worms. "Now, class. Observe closely the worms," said the professor, putting a worm first into the water. The worm in the water writhed about, happy as a worm in water could be. The second worm, he put into the whiskey. It writhed painfully, and quickly sank to the bottom, dead as a doornail. "Now, what lesson can we derive from this experiment?" the professor asked. Johnny, who naturally sat in back, raised his hand and wisely responded, "Drink whiskey and you won't get worms."
  8. Here are a couple of videos on the Mors Kochanski Survival Scarf.
  9. Heard any good ones lately

    Grandpa was always going on about the good old days, and the lower cost of living, in particular. "When I was a kid, my mom could send me to the store, and I'd get a salami, two pints of milk, 6 oranges, 2 loaves o' bread, a magazine, and some new blue jeans ... all for a dollar!!" Then Grandpa said sadly, "You can't DO that anymore ... they got those danged video cameras everywhere."
  10. I got a handful of GITD beads last year from a science event in the community last year.

    Don't know. For the first time in life I am truly homeless and broke. She burned through my saving's, and told me she decieved me to get what she wanted. I said thank you. I could get a contract here but need to have my own housing, and rent would be with utilities 2K a month. Then factor 200.00 a week for food. Can't do it.
