Yup, He couldn't talk about almost anything he was ever involved in, but I heard years later that he had one too many of my father's drinks, (used to mix about 3x average, ha) and talked about traveling to another country, as a business man, and would report back what type of aircraft he would see at airport, that kind of thing, in Arlington now, he held some interesting posts over his life and had a 50 military person or so team in horse drawn wagon at his funeral. It was something.
Anyway, i don't think some of the old geo formulas for traveling through rock, ect, has changed since the 1800's, so try to keep an open mind.
The usgs has come out and said that an area, south of LA, and is huge, is, in their words, subsiding, or sinking fast, due to everything being sucked out below it.
Also in CA, they just realized that they have been drilling into, and sucking steam to turn turbines, off the top of a new found supervolcano. Didn't know it was one when they drilled. Might be long valley, I forget as I am on other side of country and don't keep up with cali too much.
If you use google earth you can see drill points, gas/steam/oil lines all over cali and beyond. I would guess 10,000 min. in tx, ok, co, they are everywhere, mile after mile, county after county, small dirt patches with rigs on them, some just for fracking, or injection of waste water after shale is broken up. You will not believe it.
you like you tube, might want to check out Dutchsinse, now moved to twitch. Must watch many of his vid to give him chance, he has been smeared ever way you can imagine. He is talking out against big oil and gas, years now, which he says he likes and realizes we need, and against established dogma of what is being taught in schools on geology, and the near BILLION dollar PHd's out there, they don't like it one bit, think he is nuts, but watch how many times he is correct in his forcasting, it is all right there is his videos. He has a nasdaq story out, if you search his name and nasdaq it should come up first, where he talks about having to go to you tube 6 TIMES to try and get acct reinstated. his haters would abject to every video, for years, and you tube would take them down, then put them back up, jsut cause he is against mainstream teachings. It is really something, he has large hate groups after him, NZ people and the pnsn, pacific northwest sesmic network and their tax dollars. but even now they are starting to see the light that earthquakes can be forecast and several other things they used to attack him on. On his chat, the folks there call it the USBS, cause they knock sooooo many quakes down after the fact, even a 5.9 club, for the hundreds of times they have taken a 6.0 to 6.5 down to 5.9 for no reason, and often interior quakes below 4 so the oil and gas co. don't get fined more. 4.0,-4.5 getting marked later as, you guessed it, 3.9.
anyway, it is an adventure.
Hey GFP, Hobby only, actually the only quake I ever felt was up on the Bucks co line, small 2.1. I was lying on couch of third floor apt. and felt what I can only describe as a light wave from head to feet, noted the time and the next day the paper said a small 2.1 had hit at that exact time, so I am guessing that is what I felt.
That one you mentioned that hit VA, actually hit in Mineral, VA, a small sleepy town, one that my uncle, now passed, called home. He actually lived on Lake Anna up there, rented a plane decades ago after a life in military and cia, and flew around that lake, found the perfect spot, found the farmer who owned the land and would not sell any to anyone, but he got to like my Uncle and his service record, and sold him an absolute beautiful spot that stuck out on one of the curves to that lake, he built a lake house there with some of the nicest views I have ever seen.
The whole reason lake Anna is there is because they have a huge nuke plant at one end. When the quake hit I asked if he was worried, and he said no, they built that thing like brick s__t house. Ha, I was not as kind. Anyway, that was the quake that cracked the Washington Monument, a lot further away than the nuke plant, ha.
Anyway, my take on them is that they normally follow a path of where the plates go all the way through the crust. Usually statrs with deep quakes around the globe, 200+km, normally just above NZ, and spread out from there, putting pressure on the underside of the plate and causing forecastable havoc around the pacific plate, volcano's as well, nut it's all pressure related, how much is coming round, not always right, but I seen hundreds of forecasts become fact. Pro's, Phd's, ect. don't like it much, but now after a decade of them being shown how they progress, even the usgs, who got 900 million tax dollars last year, and keep a lot of info from public, like passwording databases, no reports of quakes to speak of in OR for years now, have published paper saying it is true.
They tried and are still trying to destroy one guys rep, who basically is a savant in pattern recognition, found it using usgs and emsc databases, plotted on something called Earthquake 3d, and using google earth as well. Really nerdy stuff. I loved it, ha.
you know, this whole time I have been gone studying earthquake forecasting, one thing I kept seeing is, "never believe the governments 1st explanation."
And if it comes out real quick, run, ha.
lots of folks thinking "false flag," on this one, that said, could be true.
We can't understand it at all. We keep getting folks from those states down here and it seems like the first thing they want to do is try to make it like where they came from???????????
If I hear, "well, we used to xxxxxxxxx," I think I am going to scream!
We don't want to hear about where you came from, only where you are now, or go back if you liked it so much.
HA, Our state is also turning a little bluer all the time.
Wow, I knew that about the security 5 members, but not the IMF, NSA, ect, coming out of there.
Did you see how NZ is turning in their arms, and bitching about not getting anywhere near what they think they are worth from the government? Yesterdays news.
Coming soon to a state near us.............ugg
Ha, that guy sounds great. A lot of folks didn't finish school to start DOS, lots of em, just raw brain power.
There was the guy in the 70's who hacked phones from space, list goes on.
some time I'll tell you the story of how my brother, the one you and Dew D. remind me off, while watching Monday Night Football with Howard Cosell, and what we heard come out of the TV about 11:30 that night est.
Let's just say that "you suck Howard," "Howard you suck," was just the beginning of it. Hacked the stations non-firewalled orbiting transmission, we thought we had been punked, ha.
Hey GFP, Since we gave away control of the internet under the previous admin, under no threat, and gave it to a very much, anti - Jew organization, how did we do that again, oh that's right BO's loyal surrogate passed on the vote that had kept that shitbag of an organization afloat for so many years.
I wonder why she was pulling so many fisa requests at the end of her tenure?
Can remember father railing against such a huge amount of money being wasted on countries that hate us. but it is the globalist way. at least DT is trying to get them to the agreed upon 2% of gdp, rather than the good ole USA financing so many of our long term enemies, many who have no problem saying "Death to America" every night on their local tv's.
good lord, i think i might have moved a little further right over the last couple years, hardly seems possible, HA
Take Care, I heard the murder rate had taken off there, be careful.
Hey BigWorld, No chance Mexico would be trying to help us at southern boarder if DT had not almost went 5%, 15%, 20% 25% in tariff,going up each month.
A lot of the world has forgotten that piece through strength is a real thing.
And how did we give Iran 1.4-1.5 BILLION in cash anyway, oh yea.
Take Care, Hoping TX doesn't go blue from tax escaping CA, and NY folk, who will then try to make TX, just like where they came from. Crazy.
Hey GFP, yes long time, no new ideas, other than long term leap puts, eased into.
i did know about Libra. but not the detail, thanks for that. I still kind of have a reflex gag every time i even here the word Facebook. You all know that I am a complete geek, in 6th grade my teacher actually drove to my parents house and told them they had to get me into some kind of computing, it was the mid 60'S and the IBM mainframe IBM had left us, ran on punch cards, so I don't know how good on it I could have been, HA.
But computers and I got along real well through the years, and then one day, in the back of a PC Magazine, was a small story on how these two ivy league guys and there friends had gotten TONS of students to reveal their inmost sex stuff and send sexual posed pictures to each other through the site, and WE, meaning them, can see it all, they don't even know what they are giving away!!!!!! Clearly JZ did. I think they were just a handful of collage guys running the site at that point, years to IPO. Never had the stomach for them since. (like being friends with someone who steals for a living, just not right.)
Gold is hard one. Chasing at 1,400 will seem like nothing if it goes to 25,000. Will seem foolish,but as much so, if it comes back down to 1200.
Anyway, getting some each time period you decide, like monthly, same dollar amount is a proven way, dollar cost averaging, sound familiar, HA
Take care, good to hear you again.
A little out of practice but did you all see the story Friday on how the S&P 500 took Facebook into their companies they consider "unethical.?"
So Google or alpha are having the doj come after them and now facebook gets bitch slapped. humm
when they came after Microsoft years ago, it dropped 40% before recovering.
food for thought..
hope everyone is doing well.
hello gfp, some guy taking stew varney's place at 9am till noon, opened with all the phone calls to the big banks, and said he was going to put mild pressure on the PPT, WHATEVER THAT IS. I also started laughing, if only i could have had a mic in his ear i could have let him know that is why the market is not around 11,000. HA
agree they will be circling the wagon as fast as they can. too bad, if the pres would lift restrictions on guns over state line, i would try to go down and join the texas freedom fighters, or some such group, backed by the usa in whole, and lend a hand at whatever.
hey gfp, just saw your post.
i think they are trying to not use the PPT or lower rates at this time,AND they are selling off their own balance sheet.
until they start reversing those things and doing something really crazy like true price discovery, like i think they are trying to do now, i'll just have to keep gaining 20k a week on paper, ha. This has been the longest Dollar Cost Average of my lifetime, all short.
Sorry to hear the weather is not great up there, rained here the most in past month that I remember, Sunny going forward however.
Hope you are still doing well,
Rep.-elect Ilhan Omar (D-MN), the first Muslim woman elected to Congress (along with fellow Democrat Rashida Tlaib of Michigan), mocked Vice President Mike Pence last week with a tweet captioned “Jesus take the wheel!”.
Would have been on CBS, NBC, CNBC, WEATHER CHANNEL, GOlf CHANNEL, ABC, WASHING POST, NYT, MSNBC, HUFFINGPOST, AND MANY OTHERS, if Pence had said the same thing about their God. Instead, Crickets.
They are in the Congress Now, Like China's 100 year plan for Global Control.
Venezuelans from all walks of life lament their nation’s six-year-old gun ban and say the prohibition against being armed allows their government to dominate them.
Hey BG, Sorry for the late response. We did fine through both. Lost back fence, but no flooding here. Think we are just going to fill the pool in.
Both my Brother and Sister found out they had Melanoma cancer Last year. I kind of lost my Joy for being out in the 100 degree sun and cool of in the pool.
A few miles in all 4 directions had road closed due to flooding. Then they had to check bridges and road conditions before opening the roads.
Everything that drops in eastern NC slowly drifts down into several rivers. The biggest runs right through the City of Conway, SC which was something like 4-6 FEET over it's highest ever recorded, (which i think was hurricane Floyd, several years ago.
Looks like the President might make some kind of move(s) after the midterms. He very well could push for a more non criminal position.
Seems like if that happens it could be a free for all in the sector for a bit, then settling out. Kind of like tech stochs when all you needed was a home page and VC's would toss all kinds of money in your face. Then a small % of them actually made money, and away they went....ha.
Seems that spreading around speculative money makes some sense.
I have not kept up with what has happened since Canada went legal.
I think my better half may have gotten a bite from "the kissing bug," that tends to get you on the face, near the lips. Hers was just below lips, nice thing about this bug is it leaves holes in your heart, years later, so we will get her blood test soon, hundreds of thousands of Americans likely have been bit according to this:
hope you, BW, and everyone are doing well, down 831, need about 12 more of those, or as I once said on corx, nearly a decade ago....THERE IS TOO MUCH WORLD DEBT, ha. And then after that the entire world started borrowing Trillions, instead of Billions. My timing leaves something to be buried, ha.
hey gfp, tested tubes usually sell for more, but once you get a tester,most sellers have it calibrated, so there is an extra few hundred. i think some refurbishers run auctions, Dan Nelson does most of the TV-7 a, b, c, d models last i knew and i saw his name listed lots of times on tube auctions. (i have about 6 testers and my best i bought for 300, recently saw one just like it listed as "working" for 1600. Tubes are showing up everywhere. some sellers even sell them as the new "art deco," but call it steam punk! ha.
real problem is the buyers who stick good tubes into 60 year old bad amps, which blow the tube as soon as they are plugged in, the same reason the amps were put up 60 years ago....almost better to test for continuity and sell for that only, as is, no returns. you might get less for them, but tube buyers are the most anal retentive people i have ever dealt with, ha.
looks like another whipsaw market today, when i first looked at phone the dow was up 450, now 227, think with last hour of so. i don't watch as close these days. just hoping the bloom is off the rose.....
hey gfp, nice grundig. last one i had was portable one and all the tubes inside were telefunken, very expensive. you may want to go through it and price them out on the bay site, look at sold auctions to see if what they actually went for. telefunken are german tube and are known for their white lettering to come off if you breathed on them too hard. DO NOT try and clean them, serious buyers know that tube usually went from usage, to closet, to garage, to barn. covered with rat and roach poop and partially eating baxes. I paid about 45 for the radio and it had about 300 worth of tubes in it. you may need a magnifing glass to read the tube number, any smaller little markings printed on the tube can show what factory/country the tube was made. SO DON'T CLEAN.
i have a fake telefunken 12ax7, worth a lot if it was ligit, i will never sell it, the telefuken name and tube number are on the tube so hard I can't get the print off with my fingernail, fake....A lot of bad folks out there started making blank tubes for a dollar or two, and then printed them with identifiers that would make anywhere from a hundred dollar to five hundred dollar tube. lot of old tube equiptment has been found and put back into production. some of the names were even reclaimed, like Tung Sol, Mullard, and others. There are even videos on how to make the packing boxes look old, unreal.
If all that is out with the unit is the little bulb that sits behind the cover plate, it as an easy change. There might be two for three, depending on how they made it. I have only seen one bulb, like on the old Fishers...the bay has those little bulbs on it all the time. they can look the same but have different numbers.
I also have a 9 piece gurndig stereo that is cool, 3 open wooden boxes on top to store stuff, like records, grundig amp, turntable box, 6 or 7 foot long bench, and the really cool thing is that both speakers have their own huge boxes, and all pieces go together like a puzzel, and the grundig wood and a wooden face you can lower so it all looks like a solid piece of furniture.
last thing, when dealing with old amp it is by far better NOT TO PLUG THEM in as the 60 year power capacitors will likely blow. much better to invest in old varicac and power up slowly over a couple days.
seem likes lots of headwinds these days, as it has for YEARS~! yikes.
thanks gfp, i went with only LP as i didn't see anything else on amazon and searched ebay a while back and it was LP only as well.
no basements for the most part anywhere near here on the coastal plains....water about 4 feet down, think it liquifies if we get an earthquake of any size....might be why; our EQ ins went from 400 to 800 year over year about 6 years ago, maybe more.
Thanks again for update on the old thld....
OT- Thanks gfp, never thought of that. We are brick, so not sure how hard it will be to find downstream, but out of pocket for this will be 3700 min., with ins.....
I had lost track of threshold, but had thought that they were well thought of in the med community, maybe Dr. Tracy????? don't quote me on that, might have wished it, it's been years and years.....
OT - gfp, this band only ever released 1 LP, no mp3, no cd. (2014)
You can hear them on you tube, they are unreal using a tube amp, i mean unreal.
anyway, like all music, not for everybody, you can find them here:
BW, i just read this on zerohedge and was going to post it here, thinking of you and your insights on the "pegged" gold market. you beat me by 30 minutes, ha.
hope everyone is doing well, we broke a water pipe here, depite running 6 of our faucets for 5 days straight, i forgot the water hose connection outside garage, pipe broke up at top of that unheated wall and sprayed water all over the fiberglass, which leaked down to our garage ceiling. ins. called it a total loss and we have had crews in here a lot, with lots more to come.
i can now get all the way across my garage for the first time in 5 years, after 6 mega pickup truck loads of flattened boxes and 23 bags of filling and junk. another 90 gallon trash container filled to go in morning.
we just are not prepared for extended cold here, happened jan 5th i think, yikes i am getting old it took me so long to get as far as i have. they will drop a pod here and have a 4 person crew for two day, one out, and one in. in between drywall and electrictions....
speaking of Zerohedge, they ran a story, now on page 3 where they said the bank of america just issued a sell based on an indicator that has been right 11 of 11 times, averaging 12% down in some time frame, think few months, but can't remember all of the print. Not doing much trading right now, checking in.....
Just saw your happy New Year post to us, thanks and hope your's is starting off ok.
I had to wait in a waiting room this morning for about an hour and a half. After about an hour a women went up to the desk and asked if she could change the channel on the TV.
She choose CNN, so I could not escape hearing them blathering on.
I think they used the word sh*thole about 50 times in that half hour and could not believe they were saying the word. They just wanted to burn it into everyone's mind.
The fake outrage was so apparent it was sickening staged hyper overdrive.
I would be interested if anyone counted how many times they said it in 24 hours? Never seen anything like it. EVERY sentence seemed to repeat it, or set up someone else to repeat it.
But why is it again that we have to import folks where we can't get clean records on their background???? Sh*thole countries seems like they would first on that list...Crazy.
Good to see ombow back.
saw that movie 16 times in a certified THX theater in myrtle, b4 they put risers in the screening rooms that ruined that THX sound, used to cost them 10k a screen to have them certified, so after a few years they stopped adn called all 16 screens "digital." not nearly as good sound. Die-hard was just unreal in the two screens they kept THX certified the longest, best movie sound i ever heard.
i saw an interview with one of those folks who swore they saw a missle go up to that plane on tv, didn't know some of them met tragic ends. There still are a lot of ?"s with the vegas thing.......we will never know
didn't know you knew about the HAARP rings, yikes.
how about that russian spy ship that lingered off the usa coast, just outside of the 12 miles limit for days? few weeks later some russian general said they could create a tsunami at will with underwater nukes any where they wanted off the NE coast.
scary stuff with DPRK and others arounds the world last few years.
did you feel the east coast 4.4 earthquake today, 80 miles from DC.
they had it at 5.1, then downgraded, rare to have hit delaware,
dutch forecasted it in his weekly update last sunday night.
bitcoin over 10k last night, WT HECK ?????
we could all be partying in vegas with just 1000 dollars worth a few years ago, missed ebay when offer it at 10 a share cause i was a member, missed coastal federal years ago for same 10 a shrare cause we had accounts there, was 2nd best stock on nasdaq the next year, and there have been others over the years.
sometimes look over what is right in front of face! ARRGGG
HA, how about that chick who is suing to keep her the acting head of the consumer protection b.?
no accountability to congress, just demands fake money that the fed prints up every year, and they have to give to them unquestioned. thanks e. warren, what a champ you are. (it's part of dodd frank)
judge ruled yesterday that they keep D. T's. pick as acting head, sure to be contested, they answer to no one, like the gold contracts, completely unconstitutional. or at least in the spirit of.....then that guy says, "if americans knew what kind of power i now have they would be justifiably scared." OUCH!
been buying hdge last two days, even got some at 8.03 today, days low, level 2 and patience, ha, nothing like it, not the bread money, but could probably buy small house, no now for sure could. ha. like wnr, had to buy that one for over a year, down to 4.50-6 before it turned to 50, i think my high sells were 16-18, never again, will always keep a little just in case, ha.
odd today though with nasdaq down 1.08% to have hdge down 1.10 %, seems like should be reversed, my money thinks so anyway,,,,famous last words.
hope you guys are doing well.
off topic, still watching dutchsinse every night at 11 est on you tube. guy is unreal, called an earthquake with, i think 5 day watch, for wyoming day b4 yesterday, then one hits next day. thing is that state sits on the northamerican craton, that hasn't moved in about 600 MILLION years and only gets a few earthquakes a year, sometimes none, so he zooms in on google earth and shows it hit surrounded by fracking pads, like Tx and Ok, now pressure is moving into scary ground. NOT REPORTED by the USGS, (our tax dollars) as they hide earthquakes all the time near frack ops. It got reported by other feeds, there are dozens on the planet. I am guessing the guy is right 70-80% of the time, just unreal to forcast BEFORE one hits an area, within 200 miles and 1 mag. Just unreal. Been on Dept of homeland security list, took him a month to get off, wapo listed him as fake news last year. LOTS of money in oil and gas, and he is just up against it with USGS and big oil out to get him,. lowly you tuber, it's like going against mainstream when folks said earth was flat and the few said, no, round. some of them were i think executed in those days for saying earth round. ugg.
i thought china held about 90% of rare earth metals.
we even depend on them for some of are targeting weapons.
then i read that they found lots of those minerals in the tailings of those huge gold rigs up in AK and Yukon, but never saw it again so guessing it would be to hard to get our of the ground.
china is an interest study, comunisum mixed with capitalism. lots of folks think this is what Gorbachaph (sp as usual) should have done, slowly rather that overnight and the ussr crumbled.
anyway, hope you are doing well. i keep looking at the melt up with awe, and wondering how long the musical chairs can last, years longer that i first thought, didn't dawn me and ALL the world banks would print money as fast as us.....
thanks for heads up on teva
