My Sincere Apologies

My Sincere Apologies

Score Card has not posted for over a month, November 17 to December 20, 2018. This was due to medical issues and family requirements. I am most sorry for being lax in my requirements to you. I hope to do better.

United States District Judge of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia Reflects American Values.

United States District Judge of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia Reflects American Values.

December 19, 2018, Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ruling in the case of Michael Thomas Flynn, shocked most of the United States by not rendering a quick decision to give Flynn no jail time. Why was there such a disconnect between the nation’s expectations and how the judge presided? Ever since President Trump became the leader of the United States and showed himself to seemingly act like a crime boss, there has been a slow slide downwards of expectations on the…

Evaluation of F.A.S.T #1155 Vest For Emergency Personnel

Evaluation of F.A.S.T #1155 Vest For Emergency Personnel

Impressions of the F.A.S.T #1155 vest: First let me explain why we require two radio pockets in our radio vests.  In our city, we have Community Emergency Repose Teams, called CERT, that are expected to carry a Family Radio Service (FRS) radio.  These community volunteers are not required to have radio licenses. We just want them to give aid and assistance to their neighbors in case of an emergency.  We expect these CERT workers to begin their rescue activities at…

“Supreme” Court Acts To Suppress Unions

“Supreme” Court Acts To Suppress Unions

The “Supreme” Court ruling that public unions can not require workers to pay union dues seems to be following the fascist play book. If we look at the fourteen point definition for determine what fascism is, we see that the “Supreme” Court, once again, has worked toward this end: Powerful and continuing expressions of nationalism. Disdain for the importance of human rights. Identification of enemies/scapegoats as a unifying cause. The supremacy of the military/avid militarism. Rampant sexism. A controlled mass…

Comet SBB2 Dual Band Antenna: 146/446 MHz Review

Comet SBB2 Dual Band Antenna: 146/446 MHz Review

This review is for ham radio licensed individuals: Like an idiot, I assumed the Comet SBB2 antenna was resonant for 2 meters when I purchased it.  The package shows “146/446MHz”.  After having this antenna for years, I decided to test it with my MFJ HF/VHF SWR Analyzer, model MFJ-249.  The results were awful.  My MFJ unit only tests 2 meters and not 440.   The 2 meter test results shows the antenna to be resonant close to 160 MHz.  I have…

Prediction Possibility

A favorite tactic for Trump is to create a diversion. Mike Pompeo, the new secretary of state, is a war hawk. His appointment may be clearing the deck of any opposition to Trump’s possible next move.

Installing insinkerator Evolution Prestige Garbage Disposal.

Installing insinkerator Evolution Prestige Garbage Disposal.

It was a Thursday, July 20, 2017, when our garbage disposal failed. One of the grinding heads broke loose which caused the garbage disposal to nearly explode with noise and vibration. I dove for the on/off switch and shut the unit down. I fished out the broken piece. The disposal was way out of balance when I applied power again and shut the unit down quickly. I knew then I had to replace the unit.

American Standard Toilet Lid Problem – Solved

American Standard Toilet Lid Problem – Solved

The customer complained that one of their bathroom toilet lids kept falling down.  This is a real problem for men. I checked to see if the floor was level.  I was darn near level but had an ever so slight tilt backward which should have helped the lid to stay up.  It appeared to be a defective design. The only identification is inside the water tank: American Standard 1112 tank, made in Mexico.  I suspect that this toilet came with…
