Yes, a new YT vid on an older and popular topic. Enjoy:
Greetings, prepper peeps. Some good news and a whisper.
The rumor first: something may be happening with Freedom Prepper (emphasis on “something” and “may be”). This would be something beyond my posting a new Venezuela video.
The great news! My friend, Samantha Biggers, one of the best prepper writers out there, has a new (to me) site:
It’s a place for better ideas about all things prepping, which, now, is more important than ever. Browse around. She even has a link to my craziness.
Today’s Prepper News Weekly, with a cool interview about Bee Keeping (we aim to please around here…):
Many thanks to Mr. Michael Rigdon, a really cool and dangerous man.
In other news! I just embarked on my most unusual and ambitious venture yet. I applied for a part in an upcoming Clint Eastwood movie. Everyone knows my acting skills (as demonstrated in so many low-budget YT vids) and my deep love of film and popular culture… Heck, it’s Eastwood. When I’m famous, you can say you doubted it….
See, this is a “serious” headshot. Selfie. Shaggy.
Y’all have a good Friday!
First, limping along with the news at FP:
And, a welcome of sorts to the wonderful readers over at The Piedmont Chronicles:
A few remain hidden but the YT editor tells me that last one is No. 100. Wow…
Tom Selleck is hawking reverse mortgages, equity loans aimed at seniors. He says older Americans are woefully under-saved (they are) and the solution is a loan on the equity! Why not?! These things have been around a while. And all that while I’ve thought the smelled funny.
Without much research, my gut reaction is that this is a terrible idea. It might be helpful to some at times, but it looks like, feels like the end of the debt-ification game. Literally, the banksters grab up the last of the assets, issuing new debt in its place. Cannot be a good idea for the economy as a whole: ownership only by the financial elite only benefits the financial elite. Beware.
Some things we can all learn from this, turning tragedy into positive reinforcement. From FP today:
Even better now that the shooter is in custody. Many thanks to a hero.
*Any discombobulation in video is entirely the computer’s fault…
After several months of neglect I decided, tonight, to clean out the comments backlog over at FP. I did this manually, knowing that amidst all the Russian election hackers and China-Bots there might be real people trapped in the Spamville jail. There were. Three. Three out of maybe 700… The good news is that hopefully this will train the WP AI (Perrin hopeful of AI…) to kill this crap automatically in the future. It’s still a new site with a really new reboot on theme.
That works. I’ve been knocking down the spammers, here, for almost 6 years. I rarely get any now. Double-checked tonight and confirmed – only 9 POS attempts over the same time period.
Back to FP, there was more good news! Along with all that shit about free money, porn, free porn money, Costco generic Viagra (who knew?), cat paintings(??), virus invitations, incomprehensible gibberish, and foreign criminal solicitations, I found the most charming spam I have ever encountered.
I found this:
(Posted without gmail address. And, don’t y’all go surfing for the house finisher…).
It was so touching I almost let it pass. Are these not those lost Chicago lyrics we’ve heard legend tell of?
You’re the meaning in my life,
You’re my inhalation…
And to think my prepper shenanigans would make a reclusive web logger run out of the post. Hope he’s (she’s) (it’s?) not AWOL or something. Or maybe he/she/it has given up the crack pipe for whatever the hell post he/she/it/zir was inhaling on there. No idea.
But I do know this gem of a post, highly reflective of this “highly respected web log,” rarely causing run outs, beats the slow Sunday evening alternative: commentary on Emmanuel Macron’s visit to the DC funny farm…
Maybe not too good … but free!
First, if you’ve been following FP News, know that the news has moved:
It moved to the new and improved main FP site:
And, while I was making short videos, I finally got around to a real intro for my YT channel (which you should subscribe to…):
Market research tells us more and more people like watching rather than reading. Thus, the emphasis this year on YT. Seems to be working. Thanks.
That’s all for now. Only for now…
It’s the first FULL day of Spring. I missed the actual start yesterday. Sorry. A little busy.
To make up for it I created a little video for FP (and you) about the recent Bombings in Austin, Texas. Please watch:
We’re off to a blast … sorry again.
More to come. Stay tuned.
