    Trip Of A Lifetime!!!

    Just got back last night from a trip out to western Canada. My Father is 74 years old, terminal cancer, and never seen the mountains. It started out as just myself my wife and my mom and dad going. We booked everything, then the next day my Dads specialist called with new CT scan results, the tumor in his back is pressing against his spine, 2 choices, 9 hour operation with a 10% survival rate or 10 heavy doses of radiation and being paralyzed in 6 months to 1 years time. While my parents were talking it over the Dr called back, he talked to the surgeon, he refuses to do the surgery as he is 100% sure my father would not make it off the table. With this news in mind I talked to my brother and sister and they joined in on our trip, 1st full family trip in 30+ years. We were out there Saturday till Tuesday. We got a whole lot of sight seeing and family time in. Mom shed happy tears, Pops literally said "Holy Fuck" when we came around 1 corner to a huge mountain in our view. It was an amazing trip filled with memories! People, get out there and do shit with your life now! Dont be like my pops and wait for grave medical news till you start to do things cool in life. You never know what life is going to toss your way, so live it to the fullest while you can! Any Canadians on here, if you have never been to Banff, get your ass out there! We got so much beautiful country within our own borders to see, GO SEE IT!!!! Here are some pics, you may not believe me, but, all these pics are taken with my android cell phone.... NO FILTERS!!! The Murphy Clan Lake Louise Alberta Beef steak dinner with the fam Bow River Bow River Elk Selfie Contemplating life at Moraine Lake Bow Falls Trail Sunrise from downtown Banff Last but not least, getting high way up high!!! Smoking a joint on top of Sulphur Mountain! (Its legal here in Canada!!!)

    Got my baby back!

    I wasn't going to talk about this because well I generally only keep things to myself. But due to some unforseen circumstances I was facing living out of my vehicle. So I had to give my 1 year old German Shepherd away. I balled liked a baby of course but the people who took him were amazing. And they said that if I ever get a place again to come get him. So these past couple of weeks have been crazy busy but I have been blessed with a beautiful place to live and my baby back. I was super happy and just wanted to share with my XI family.

    for my opinion its common sense that a business that work with people , like hospitals , schools and public or private transportations , asked theirs employees all been vaccinated ; its for safety of the workers and also for all users. Your liberty stops when you are affecting my liberty , i want to be free and go where i can be safe and virus free . In my place all these masks stuff and restrictions are still in effects because of the amount of sick poeple in hospital ICU who are close to 100 % non or not enough vaccinated... hope this will end soon ...

  14. I ask the XI community to give their thoughts and prayers to my former beat partner who is fighting for his life at this very moment here in Maryland. He and I have been through hell and back together, and we went home after every shift. Today is different. The outcome looks very bad, but he is still in the fight at the moment. He is one of the biggest, toughest, honest and righteous cops anyone could every know or work with ... especially on the midnight shift when all the goons come out to victimize the innocent. It's been a long month. Thank you all.

  18. WARNING YOU MUST DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH FOLLOW PROPER CLEANING AND CANNING RECIPES FROM ACCREDITED PUBLICATIONS BACTERIA IN FOOD PREPARATION CAN KILL YOU! Hello everyone made 2 batches of cinnamon apple Jelly using THE NATURAL PECTIN IN THE APPLES! Managed to get 24 bottles. It was a lot of work. I washed and cut up over 20 pounds of MacIntosh apples. Removed the stems, blossom ends and any blemishes or apple scab. The apples were cut in quarters or more with larger apples. You must leave all the skin, seeds and cores to be boiled. Add enough water to about 3/4 of the height of the apples, meaning don’t cover the apples with water. Once the apples start boiling turn them down to a medium boil. This is where I add the cinnamon, you can use a cinnamon stick, I use a heaping tablespoon per 10 pound pot. Apples are VERY HIGH in natural pectin, too high of a temperature will destroy the pectin at this stage. The pectin is mostly in the skin area. The apples will turn into apple sauce you should also mash the apples if required. Apple juice is what the jelly is made of. Once the apples are fully dissolved make a 4 layer cheese cloth bag to drain/strain the apples into a clean container or pot. You can let the bag drain overnight but I find any juice gained more than 4 hours is minimal. DO NOT SQUEEZE THE the cheese cloth trying to squeak out more juice. This will cause fines in the jelly making it cloudy. Once you have collected all the juice it is time to get serious. All your mason jars and lids should be washed with hot soapy water and rinsed and put in the oven at over 220 degrees F. The lids must be prepared as per the lid manufacturer. You will need to WATER BATH THE MASON JARS after the jars are filled. AGAIN DO YOUR RESEARCH, USE AN ACCREDITED SOURCE like a canning company or extension office. Prep you water bath canner with the appropriate amount of water and raise the temperature to at least 190 Degrees F. Accurately measure your juice by the cup. For every cup of juice you will use 1 cup of granulated sugar. If you have 10 cups of juice use 10 cups of sugar, 15 cups of juice use 15 cups of sugar and soon. You will also add 1 tablespoon of bottled lemon juice per 3 cups of juice. This will raise the acid content of the juice. Bring the juice and lemon juice to a slight boil then stir in the sugar, keep stirring until all the sugar is dissolved. Adjust heat to suite. You want the combined juice, sugar and lemon juice to be in a rolling boil. Watch very closely the your jelly will likely start to FOAM up add a tablespoon of real butter this will stop the foaming. I now just put the butter in before it foams. Putting the butter in early just saves the pot from foam over the top making a mess. You want the contents to be a constant rolling boil. The MOST important is the temperature of the jelly. You will not achieve jelly until the mixture achieves a temperature of 220 degrees F this is the point we’re juice becomes jelly. This is why there is no set times for making/boiling jelly WITH NATURAL PECTIN it’s all about the relationship between juice, sugar, natural pectin and water. Once you have sneaker boiled off the other ingredients come together to make jelly. I use 2 thermometers to check my temperature. You will also see the jelly forming on the spoon you are stirring the pot with as the temperature nears 220. You can also increase the temperature by a few degrees as this will make the jelly a little stiffer and that won’t hurt. If you do not have a proper thermometer you can also use the cold plate method, sheet method. This method is all over the net and can be found on YouTube. Now that we have our jelly at the correct temperature and your bottles have been sterilized sitting in the oven at 220 the lids and rings are prepared as per the manufacturer. It is time to get bottling. The importance of having the sterilized bottles hot is not only to kill organisms but you can’t pour 220 degree jelly in a cold jar it might break. Keeping the water in the water bath hot is the same idea plus it allows the water bath to boil quicker. Fill each jar with jelly leaving a 1/4 to 1/2 inch headspace, wipe the rim of the bottle to remove any spillage that may prevent a proper seal. Cover with the lid and ring FINGER TIP TIGHT don’t over tighten the lids if you over tighten the bottle might not draw a vacuum. Immediately transfer the filled bottle to the water bath. Fill all the jars and place in the water bath there must be at least a full inch of water over all the bottles. You must water bath at a full boil for a minimum of 5 minutes. Remove the bottles set on a dishcloth away from drafts for 12-24 hours to let cool. If you’ve done it correctly the bottles should seal within minutes of removing them from the water bath. AGAIN YOU MUST PRACTICE GOOD HYGIENE AND PROPER CANNING AS PER ACCREDITED SOURCES. Good luck, I/we find it very rewarding to create our own preserves. I hope you do too. Wayne

    Same Old BS

    I wrote out several responses to this post, but deleted most. It's hard to answer some of your questions but I will try and be honest. I felt free to lock your thread on the technicality that people had got to the point of 'personal attacks' and multiple 'reports'. Personally I would have liked to delete it - but ya know.. I do believe in some aspect of "freedom of speech". You wonder why I let the 'Mandated' one go? I hadn't read it until 12/10 12:30 my time when Rugger asked our thoughts on it. At that point my response was it was utter bullshit, the thread and content annoys me and some other expletives. However it was not yet a "real problem" so suggested leave as is. I have not read it since as I know the content will annoy me. So yes that is 'why' I have let it go, other seniors are aware and can step in when they feel the time is right. I also see people in the forums saying stupid shit and think very much differently about them. It's fair to not visit the forums, sad but makes sense. I also haven't been visiting the forums as much as I used to due to these types of topics. Anyway - hope that helps you understand. You probably won't agree and will find fault. But that's life - full of fault.

    Laz, we have known each other for the better of 12 plus years, please don’t visit those sites. I won’t go into all you posted for honestly it’s not my field of medicine and the Internet is no ones fiend if you want to post facts or lies. All I can tell you what I see with my own eyes. I work in a medical centre of 1200 beds and a private medical company as well. 85-88 percent of our cases are non-vaccinated patients. Of those patients, they make up 20 percent of the entire adult population who can be vaccinated but have chosen not to. Of those patients in ICU over 95 percent of them are non vaccinated. In my 32 year career I have never seen our ICUs over flowing. I have never seem so many double pneumonia’s ever. Yes, there are cases time to time but the majority are single lobe, double of occasion or an entire single lung but not this many double pneumonia. You know me, I have no reason to mislead you or lie to you. I can only tell you what I see with my own eyes. Things are improving, as vaccinations rates climb, our numbers gone down. As for the blood sample in the pic? No one draws blood in a 5 cent plastic syringe, it degrades the sample very quickly. Plus arterial blood is always well oxygenate and will look bright in color while blood that are dark can potentially be veinus. The hue of blood can vary naturally due to a number of factors. This includes minor variations in individual levels of chemical compounds carried by plasma, or variations in oxygen, iron, lipids and red blood cells. Vaccination has no effect on blood color. Good Chat guys.

    This really is a mute point. Either you wish to error of public safety or you don’t. I certainly wouldn’t want anyone to infringe on my freedoms as well, but with vaccinations comes privileges. You wish to fly, enjoy a meal at your favourite restaurant or go to a movie?…you will have to be vaccinated like it or not. If you want your freedoms, then companies and business should have Freedoms to not serve you or accept your business. Freedom is not only for you and I. As for healthcare? We in the field expect that we should and must be vaccinated. We serve the public health and everyone should feel safe that we are giving them the best of care. Thx guys

    There is nothing known to man to kill a virus and this one just like all the others is not ever going away...The very thing that bothers me with all of it is simple...They have told everyone to do everything except try to maintain a healthy immune system by eating properly,supplementing and proper rest etc...One of Americas deadly killers is found in most foods (High Fructose Corn Syrup)...If that was limited or removed from ones diet it would add years to a life and far better health...By the way Countries have banned it but not here because it keeps people ill and we know who profits from that...One other point Herpes Virus aka EBV aka Mono has infected 3.7 billion across the globe and no one talks about the devastation it has on people long term and short...I am not anti anything but it should be a personal choice...I know people who have died from the virus and people who have died from the vaccine (Cytokine Storm Syndrome) with in days of their 1st shot...If you do not know what that is look it up...Vaccinated people can get and spread the virus just like everyone else and have done so in a medical environment where testing is critical...There are people dying who need major medical treatment and are not able to get it done because they were and are unable to get the vaccine and being denied and it appears some people are pleased with that...We should never lump people in one pot because everyone is different when it comes to genetics and ones health...Stay healthy that is the best everyone can do and should do regardless of vax or not... That is my roll of pennies

    I agree, this is not a science guys. There is no formula to which post will remain and which one is closed. As Labob mentioned we don’t wish to see personal attacks nor do we want these contentious subjects to spill into the servers. Most of the time these forums die out on their own and in some cases they continue. Rugger and the seniors look at them on an individual basis and make a judgment call, it’s not personal and their only concern is what’s best for the group. Now it’s a beautiful Sunday, get you of your basements and enjoy the sun for a change lol

  38. For lack of a better description this is pickled green tomatoes. I generally eat it with a roast, chicken, Turkey beef or pork. I love eating it with my mashed potatoes and gravy it is sweet and sour. Full of vinegar, sugar, onions and pickling spices. Cooked for about 2 hours and put in mason jars. Yesterday I cut up 22 pounds of my green tomatoes, 9 pounds of my onions and I layered the tomatoes and onions sprinkling each layer with pickling salt. Soaked them over night. Mrs weed drained the salt brine off added white vinegar and did the cooking. After it was cooked we teamed up and bottled it. Mmm very good. If you like pickles you’ll like these. You might notice all the lids haven’t sealed yet I took the picture when the bottles were still hot. All sealed now! I posted the batch we did last year as well.

    I agree with major mark. Why does a person who needs a heart transplant or kidney transplant have to be told no they can't have it because somebody who refuses to get a vaccine caught covid and ended up in there bed. Really not fare. It's a democracy people the majority rule. BTW a comunistic society would just lock you up not just take your job away till you get a vacine. Grow up if you have a real reason not to get the Vax so be it. But I don't want too really is a selfish answer. Just my opinion and in no way reflects on this website or the people just learning to read.

  45. My fuure wife is of turkish origin. Before Corona, we went to Turkey to visit her family. They showed me where she grew up, and HOW she grew up. A small village in the mountains, at the meanwhile 95% empty since most of the people moved to cities. The house she grew up is made of clay, without water connection and her father (second husband of her mother) installed 1 phase a few years ago. A fireplace gives warmth wich goes out sometimes during the night. In front of the house is the main fireplace. There is the biggest part o all cooking aktivities. And peolpe believe me, it is unimportant what they cook or grill. It all tastes incredible. When we went there, I had a longer walk around the village. I didn't her anything. No cars, no planes, no nating. I think I heard an ant farting. It was such a silence. The way arabic people /turkey people cook is very simple but tasty and, belive it or not, very healthy. Things / methods which are use in middle ages become poular again in our civil life. People seaching for them, but don't see, that some cultures still know and practice them. They practice a different way to celebrate their meals. Sit on the bottom is as normal as eating with fingers. There's nothing to make fun of it, since it's their way to live. And I like it. My future wife's moter has given us a plot of land so when we retire wi will move to Turkey. The climate is better than here in germany. We want to build a house on that plot and I will probably continue to maintain the house which my wifes parants have build in the mountains. Below you can see the village and the surroundings mountainvillage.mp4

    We had more deaths from heart disease and cancer than corona here in Ohio (stats from day one). I had the vaccine, but its the individuals choice and one should not be forced to do so. Gonna take a class action suit against one of these companies to change their tune. And you never know. 3 years, maybe 5 years down the road, who knows, but what if the vaccines have some detrimental effect on our bodies. And that effect leads to more deaths than the virus would have !! All of us who were vaccinated may be walking time bombs. You do not know. And I imagine there are lawyers scrambling all over filing class action suits over this, stab or get fired delima. And they should.
