  5. Recently passed a challenge I set for myself with working out. I have been riding a stationary bike to warm up, started out at 3-4 minutes. Then went up to 5 minutes. Pushed myself to be able to ride a mile in that time. Passed that then started going 7 minutes. Got to a mile and a half, maybe a bit more. I wanted to be able to get to 2 miles so I increased the time to 9 minutes. This past week was the first week I consistently got to barely over 2 miles, but accomplished within 9 minutes. Yay!!

  11. There are few mysteries in life that are as perplexing as the mystery of the missing sock. No matter how hard you try to keep pairs of socks together, invariably one of them ventures out into the netherworld never to be found again. Lost Sock Memorial Day is a day to honor all those disappeared socks.

  13. Whew, that was close, my membership with the International Rum Drinkers Association came up for review because I have not been celebrating Rum Fridays as vigorously as I once did and am making amends tonight. If you get blurry vision reading one of my posts it's not you.

  15. It’s sunny and nice and warm at 72f. I uncovered the grill and cleaned it for the BBQ season. I made some hamburgers and a few packets of sliced potatoes with onions, salt & pepper, garlic powder and some cayenne pepper with a light olive oil coating and butter. The first batch is always the best…

  18. I'm going to talk about what brought me to this forum and indeed started me down the road of looking at unexplained phenomenon. Should also be noted that I've went out of my way to lean what I can about Yupik religion and culture, I didn't really consider myself spiritual for the most part and his is in some part because of the tradition of deaf individuals being treated as Alignalghi, a kind of defacto shaman. Or a spirit medium. It can be a bit uncomfortable at times, older folks who you don't know being to close or familiar. Families asking you to hang up charms after some one in there family dies. The only thing I was ever comfortable doing was a little ritual I like to call a spirit sendoff, think of it as a small funeral for an animal you kill. Thanking it for its life and wishing it a safe trip to its afterlife. Which is also a good place to start, I hunt.. a lot. Yupik trap, fish and hunt quite a bit. Caribou, Marmots, seals, walrus, fish, water fowl. We never hunt lynx, ravens or otters. (It's downright dangerous to do so in some parts of Canada/Alaska, because the local populations take very poorly to it) When I was pretty small we had a man from the lower 48 come up and start trapping otters right outside of our settlement, he was told not too. And he just told us that it was legal. (He's correct it was) He was found floating in the bay with a shotgun wound in the back a few days later. I grew up and live in a very wild part of the state, the north slope. Most of the time when I go hunting, I take a sled and my rifle (And old Lee Enfield built in 1915, no scope) My coat and furs, a pair of binoculars and a few other items.. I tie my sled up and leave the dogs and then walk to try to get close enough for a shot on a caribou. (Normally 500-600m) This is pretty long range with a scope. But against an animal that size I can manage without most days. I had walked a good distance when I started to feel pretty uneasy, I'm normally pretty vigilant while I'm out, not being able to hear means you need to pay attention for bears and the like. After a bit I noticed something, a tan spot out in the distance, I used my binoculars to try and see it but it moved behind a hill/drift. So I moved, I got more uneasy and started to feel a bit odd, like I was maybe just a little drunk or dizzy, I kept going like this, walking a bit looking and not seeing the spot off in the distance. After what had to be much longer than I had initially thought I finally kind of saw what it was. But it was another person, a good distance off, it's odd to see another person so you normally want to communicate with them make sure everything is alright. Now that the figure was kind of insight it looked like another girl. Longish black hair coats/furs that were lighter in color than mine. I leveled my binoculars to look at the person there back turned to me as they got to the top of a small hill/drift and they turned to look at me. And the real thing is not that the person seemed to have black eyes and look pale/cold. That is noteworthy and worth talking about, it's that I felt like I was looking at a reflection of myself with these features. I'm not saying this person was a little copy of me, I'm saying that at that distance and binoculars, if it was not for the eyes and complexion I don't think my mother would have known it was not me. I was maybe 16 at the time. Qallupilluit for the record are suppose to be able to look like anyone they want. When I saw this person I was... Understandable affected, but I was not afraid or panicked. I was immediately aware , however like someone who just realized they wandered into a minefield. I was on hill with a slope in front of me with a shallow valley between us. Much farther away from my dogs/sled then I though I was, and I was not super familiar with the area. This exact situation is how many people die in this part of the State. Shallow valleys like that often hide rivers that are maybe 2-4 feet deep and frozen over with snow on top, but the seasons you hunt in the ice is never thick enough to stand on. You try to cross them, you fall in and you die from hypothermia in an hour. The figure just turned and walked down the hill, I did the same, turned around and walked back to my sled. It was a lot later than I had though so I ended up using my tend and me and the dog sleep in for the night. I can't remember how I slept I don't think I had trouble sleeping or dreamed poorly. I don't think/didn't think at the time that whatever/whoever this was, was trying to kill or trick me, I think I was just in the wrong place. I didn't tell anyone because there was no point, either they would not believe me or they would simply think "She's Alignalghi, of course she would see something like that." And I wasn't in the mood. I've always been very comfortable in the wilderness, not because I don't worry about it I've always taken a very "If the wild wants me there is nothing I can do about it." Stance. I still kind of feel that way. We have stories of Qallupilluit replacing people for whatever reason. They are not inherently malicious figures in our beliefs. More like figures that you can't understand, trying to understand their motives is like trying to understand what the moon is thinking.

  19. Living in a historic suburb isn't as horrible as I thought. My neighborhood is all skilled professionals and small business owners. The only thing I had to get use to was the train and medical helicopters going to the area hospital.......now if I lived in a new subdivision filled with corporate turds that would be different...... I did cause some concern driving my JD loader from the equipment yard, use it to pull stumps and park it in the drive though........does anyone know what a "eyesore" is and how you catch them?

  21. Update on the hubby: The docs finally agreed that he does not need surgery. Now to find out why they are still keeping him and for how long. My son and I are going there tomorrow. I have no qualms about marching to the nursing station, asking to speak to the nurse and then telling them I want to speak to one of the doctors to find out what is going on.

  22. A new corporate culture memo from Netflix is taking a hardline stance on attempts to silence artistic expression by warning those who are offended by the streaming service’s content that they may want to go find a job somewhere else. Variety reports that the change in Netflix’s company culture appears to be in large part due to the backlash the streaming service faced from woke employees last year over its Dave Chappelle special, which the employees claimed was transphobic. The updated Netflix Culture memo includes a new section called “Artistic Expression” that states that it will not “censor specific artists or voices” even if employees consider the content “harmful.” “If you’d find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you,” the memo states, later adding that employees may be required to work on projects that they “perceive to be harmful” and that if they have a hard time accepting their work assignment, they might want to consider working somewhere else. “Entertaining the world is an amazing opportunity and also a challenge because viewers have very different tastes and points of view. So we offer a wide variety of TV shows and movies, some of which can be provocative,” the new section reads, later adding, “we support the artistic expression of the creators we choose to work with” and that “we let viewers decide what’s appropriate for them, versus having Netflix censor specific artists or voices.” Sorry its behind a paywall https://www.dailywire.com/news/netflix-fires-major-warning-shot-at-its-woke-employees-with-new-culture-memo

  29. Kittens on the go!!! they get to roam outside of the box a few times a day, this allows me to clean up their litter box, sweep up wayward litter and get fresh blankets down. they love playing in the kitchen and climbing in the nooks and crannies, im sure glad 30 minutes of play time tuckers them out for awhile.

  30. The specialists and surgeon cannot agree if my hubby should have surgery or not. First they say he needs it, then they say he doesn't. Very frustrating for both of us and not raising my confidence in the hospital.

  35. A team of Chinese scientists has discovered a giant new sinkhole with a forest at its bottom. The sinkhole is 630 feet (192 meters) deep, according to the Xinhua news agency, deep enough to just swallow St. Louis' Gateway Arch. A team of speleologists and spelunkers rappelled into the sinkhole on Friday (May 6), discovering that there are three cave entrances in the chasm, as well as ancient trees 131 feet (40 m) tall, stretching their branches toward the sunlight that filters through the sinkhole entrance. The new discovery took place in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, near Ping'e village in the county of Leye, according to Xinhua. Guangxi is known for its fabulous karst formations, which range from sinkholes to rock pillars to natural bridges and have earned the region UNESCO world heritage site designation. https://www.livescience.com/new-sinkhole-discovered-china

  39. Good for Netflix, bunch of righteous pricks who don't own the company but demand that they decide whats best for the company and clienta based only on their peeceived notion of correctness. Dont think for a moment I lean right, I am center left, but this woke stuff is just plain opression to freedom of speech

  41. Weren't the vaccine mandates job-related? Meaning you could just quit your job, if you didn't want the vaccines? Not much forcing in that. Inconvenient maybe, but totally voluntary.

  42. Afraid of WWIII with Russia huh? That would be short and sweet. In one corner you have the Japanese who kicked their ass every time they took a shot at them. In another you have the Finno-Balts who still have a grudge. Half of Germany is still p***ed about Communist rule along with Poland and what they did to Prussia. Then you have the Nordic countries in their grim silence. Watch the quiet ones. They are the ones who will knock your ass in the dirt.
