‘Nodding woman’ At Trump Town Hall, October 16, 2020

During the Trump town hall TV interview there was a women who was positioned behind Trump on his left side and camera right who used head and hand gestures to support Trumps’s statements.  I accuse NBC for allowing this to happen.  It sort of makes the network look to be in favor of Trump.  The producer was at fault for placing this person in the image.  I fault the director for not asking the camera person to move his or…

Donation Conundrum Of Giving Home Improvement Supplies.

My wife was on me to clean out our garage.    One type of items that were in our garage were from prior home improvement projects, mostly electrical parts.  I went on the Internet to find places that might take construction and home improvement items for donations.  I tried to call Habitat For Humanity but no one would pick up the phone.  I decided to drive there which took almost a half hour but they would not accept any of…

The Alleged Utter Incompetence Of Some Businesses.

October 2020 AAA keeps changing our separate billing that my wife and I have for our separate accounts.  For example, I have a personal umbrella insurance, to only cover me, but all of a sudden my wife appears on the billing for this account.  I was sent a rebate check for an account that my wife was paying for.  They keep changing our billing.

Here is my solution. 1:  If you feel…

Modifying Yaesu FT-817 To Work On 60 Meters

Following is a story of how I found a solution to make my very old Yaesu FT-817 work on 60 meters.  If you have the Yaesu FT-817ND there is no need to modify the radio as it is designed to include 60 meters! This process of modifying the older Yaesu FT-817 is quite difficult.  I do NOT recommend you attempting this for a few really good reasons.  I was told by a former Yaesu repair person that this radio has…

Evangelicals Pro Life Stance vs President Trump’s Inaction

Let us take brief snapshots of past and current political actions of national party members and their followers and possibly reveal the advantage for some but hurt, if any, for the “other” group. The evangelicals believe in pro-life or…
