March Greetings

Post by joecool on March 1st 2014, 9:25 pm

What's that old saying? In like a lion, out like a lamb...or something like that? Hopefully, this winter season is receding in our rear-view mirror.

I've had many years of needing to put on a Parka and Mickey Mouse Boots in order to not be hurt when going outside in the Winter.

I still have the Parka and Boots, but they're only for those cold mornings on a deer stand.

Snowing  Got another 3" of snow last night. It was particularly unappreciated, as I had to take Christi to the Emergency room at 4AM. She has the flu & got dehydrated. She got dizzy & fell & cracked her head on the bath tub. Bled a lot, but no major damage. Just a big knot. got home around 715AM & headed for bed. Andy has the flu now too.

Our church had a special 20th anniversary service today. In the beginning, we were planted by our mother church on the other side of town. The first year was spent renting a hall. Then, a miracle. A church was folding, and the few that were left voted to give us the property. A whole block, a parsonage (since turned into administrative/RR space), and a church. We've just finished a new big foyer with bathrooms and cut the ribbon today. God is good.

Sorry to hear it, Chris.

I used to be opposed to Flu Shots, when the Army forced us to take Swine Flu shots in 1975, and I became deathly ill (then got the Flu again that year after the shot).

However, they are much better, almost no side-effects, and they have done a good job of keeping me from contracting the flue. Previously, I would be sick for 4 to 6 days per year with the flu.

So, currently, I find the Flu Shot to be the best $25.00 that I spend on illness prevention.

The flu shot can't keep up with all strains of flu and there are still many people who report serious side effects. Mercury is used as a preservative in vaccines. Many of our health issues are caused by heavy metal concentrations in our bodies: mercury, aluminum (common deodorant), and fluoride (tap water,toothpaste). 


I don't get sick often. I've had pneumonia twice but Flu I can't remember last time.

I Don't get the flu shot ever. I don't know the last time I ever had the flu. It may be a good thing, but the government says I should, and since I don't trust the government,... I don't get it.

Another interesting thing about vaccine makers is we can't sue them for harmful side-effects. You have to appeal to a federal court. The Left is trying so hard to push abortion through ocare and they push vaccines as well as a means of population control. Last time I got a vaccine was in 2010 when I came down deathly ill with pneumonia. They gave me flu and pneumonia shots. The pneumonia shot last 5 years they said. I may drop dead by 2015... J/k

Off to bed in a few mins I have an early rise to head off to mens advance event in Elizabethtown, KY. Besides church we are doing archery, trap shoot , .22 open sight shooting, cornhole, and bunch of other outdoor activities. They give out prizes for scoring well and for anyone that attends. They gave away some guns and a $500 bass pro gift card!  This will be my first time.

had a bad time last few days. caught that nasty flu bug Christi & the kids had.  sick 
missed work Wed-Fri & no rangers on Wednesday night.  Crying or Very sad 
My new employer is very strict about illness. If you are sick-we don't want you at work. (which makes sense when dealing with food)
got the car out of the shop yesterday after 2 weeks for major engine repair & front end work. plus had to get 4 new tires.

60 degrees in the Rockies. If it wasn't so muddy, I'd be on the trails, too. Have to settle for lemonade on the deck. Got to limit my time, though. Don't want a burn.

I had a great weekend in Ky great weather and fun. I didn't win a firearm but two from my church did. One of Ben's brothers Seth got the Henry golden boy .22 S/L/LR lever action I was eyeing. Came with a nice parting gift a digital camo pocket knife. He did let me use it in the .22 competition. I shot 3/10 on skeet first time ever trying it. 

I met a ccw instructor from Illinois. Several guys open carried at the camp including me. Ky doesn't restrict carry in churches. They are most friendly to open carry. On the way back into Ohio we stopped at a gas station in Cincinnati where I open carried and got a positive response from the clerks. The one guy asked if my "piece" was real  Laughing .  I told him make model, model, and caliber. He said it was good to know our rights. I educated the other guy on that there is no permit required for o/c only for carrying concealed or in front compartment of car. Warned him LEO's may not be friendly to o/c citizens. 


Another incident few guys who came down later in their own encountered a sobriety checkpoint. Cop asks for ID of driver without reasonable suspicion of intoxication.  Jared a former commander of mine remarked, "what is this Nazi Germany?"  The cop was dismayed not being accustomed to citizens standing up for their 4th amendment rights hollered, "we got some 'sovereign citizens' here!"  Nobody knew what that meant. I checked wiki and its describing those who believe they aren't subject to local, state, or federal authorities and only are obliged to follow "common law". Which was nothing of the sort. When the whole checkpoint was violating everyone's 4th amendment right without cause. FBI classifies sovereign citizens as a terror threat.

Some 250 conn state police refused in an open letter to follow any orders to enforce mag limits or gun ban/confiscations. Hoorah!  I hope more LEO's keep their oath in other tyrannical states. Till now its only been county sheriffs and some state assemblies.  http://rangerchat.forumotion.com/post?p=5435&mode=editpost

I spent the day getting ready for Range Day tomorrow.  Loaded clay birds and the trap in the truck, spread Sevin where the boys will be shooting and where they will do a practical exercise in getting into and our of an elevated hunting stand (chiggers & ticks), and I reinforced the backstop of the rifle/slug range by covering the face of the berm with tires, then cutting 6 foot long pine logs to cover the tires, so that low velocity rounds don't bounce back.

Now I'll get the guns, ammunition, eye & ear protection in the truck, and I'll be ready to pick the boys up in the Church Lot tomorrow.

Hot dogs and bottled water are in the 'fridge, and beans, buns, & chips are in the pantry.

Oh yeah, and I swept the leaves off the front walk of the house, as the New Pastor may be coming by for a "Look-See".

Tomorrow I'm going to a ccw class just to audit it and get some instructor taught range time. He's NRA with a list of credentials I've heard. I hope to make a contact for future shooting courses to be taught to the boys. 

I've got April 6 confirmed off I need to reserve a seat for the Utah ccw class in Dublin. 

Tomorrow's class is going to be 32 students. Some have already shot this past afternoon and will leave when the others do their range time tomorrow.
