Side Yard Debris Storage

Side Yard Debris Storage

My wife wanted me to move a pile of pipes and other rather long outdoor items laying on the east side of our back yard. This is because the single side gate was next to this pile and looked pretty bad. I decided to place the items on the other, west side, of the back yard but that side of the house was engineered to accept flood water and pipe it out to the front street through a sunken pipe…

Please Vote

If we share a common dream of inclusiveness, to keep the United States together as one nation of all individuals that will work for the betterment of every citizen and not just a minority, then that intellectual glue that we are all in this together followed by your actions to sustain this nation as a democracy by going to the poles to vote should better protect this nation from being stupid and thus destroying this democracy.   

Empirical Indicator Seems To Reveal Minnesota Politics Has Major Problems

Empirical Indicator Seems To Reveal Minnesota Politics Has Major Problems

One of the major take away lessons from being a sociology major was the concept of “empirical Indicator” which means that some real life items we view in life stand for something else which often times is way more important.  Another aspect for finding an empirical indicator is it frequently stands true for other similar situations.  So, you can often times make a collection of these indicators to carry with you for future encounters.  Often times they help you to…

Blackvue DR900S-2CH Dash Camera Fails To Reliable Connect To WiFi

I recently, (APRIL 2020) had a Blackvue DR900S-2CH Dash Camera installed in my car.  Everything about this device is quite good except it would fail to reliably connect to the WiFi.  I quickly found the solution.  I use an Android LGV30 phone.  I went into the cell phone settings and chose Network & Internet portion settings.  All I had to do was to turn Mobile Date Off.

I Sincerely Apologize.

I would like to apologize to everyone who visits this web site.  I have been away from this web site since the end of January 2020, due to my sister developing brain cancer.  I am the only living relative that she has.  I was given power of attorney for all of my sister’s affairs.  My whole life has changed dramatically.

Is President Trump Moving Toward Being Authoritarian?

Is President Trump Moving Toward Being Authoritarian?

It has occurred to some that the United States of America seems to possibly be progressing toward being a dictatorship. President Donald Trump appears to have some clear similarities to being a authoritarian but so far we might reason this is because of his alleged narcissism.  But beware that Hitler was also considered a pathological narcissist by some.

Harbor Freight Thunderbolt Solar Panel Kit – Not Recommended

Harbor Freight Thunderbolt Solar Panel Kit – Not Recommended

September 2017, I purchased a Thuderbolt Solar 100 Watt Solar Panel Kit for $154.25.  This kit seemed really clever but the controller failed to work.  I measured the voltage from each solar panel with a volt meter and each panel put our 22 volts.  When all the panel were connected to the controller, nothing happened.  I could not get the controller to turn on.  It was dead.  I waited too long to contact Harbor Freight to get this resolved.  I…

They Don’t Deserve Democracy

They Don’t Deserve Democracy

I received the following e-mail message from an Indivisible activist: “I’ve moved from despair over not being able to get the goods on Trump to despair over the Republicans and people who don’t want him impeached in the face of ALL the IRREFUTABLE evidence of multiple illegal and impeachable offenses we now have. Sometimes I just get angry and say to myself that THEY don’t deserve Democracy, but of course they take us all down with them!” My reply follows…
