if they are old enough give them marbles and jacks. those can be hour killers. I loved playing both when I had the opportunity. Chinese checkers, Uno, Skip-Bo were some other games I really enjoyed. If it was nice outside though I was out running around doing stuff. If you have any sort of livestock or anything involve them with that. I ask my kids if they like our chickens and they tell me they wish theyd of had them when they were little.

I read somewhere that an anonymous source said all products produced in Mexico that are exported anywhere in world through the canal would be subject to a 25% tax, Trump said “Mexico will pay for the canal”.

When ever my kids said they were bored growing up, I would make them take the wheel Barrow and manure rake and pick up horse poop out of the field for the garden. Whenever their friends would come over, none of them ever said they were bored either! Kids will always find things to do and make toys out of anything. Mine used to love to make forts out of boxes and sheets. The bunk bed was a covered wagon with a couple of stick horses tucked into the front. Little House on the Prairie was a big hit.

There is also corruption even among the rich. I expect the honest ones to recognize a mouth politician when the hear one.

He is a globalist and a Bankster. He is anything but stupid, but believe anything you wish. All slaves are equal in their eyes! Be wary of anyone wanting to save you! Swamp

With lots of the stuff he says he comes across as a complete idiot. For example, go to 6:38 on the video which I link.

I thought it was a fake story – and a bad joke – Steve Harvey was supposedly summoned by Trump to discuss black relations – with his history of racism against whites and now more recently asians – it had to be a joke ….

nope ….

We get zero Intel from MSM, they are incapable of the truth. A small case in point, assuming you all heard the reports of the Arizona State trooper who was shot in the arm, and was being beaten to,death earlier this week.

The facts are a good citizen stopped and assisted, by shooting the bad guy to death before the trooper was killed.

Our local news reported the story, but was less then honest, when they failed to point out that it was a citizen who using a legal firearm saved the troopers life, by shooting the suspect, who refused to,quit beating the trooper. Didn’t meet their narrative.

These organizations are their own worst enemies, they didn’t lie, they just didn’t tell the truth.
I hope and pray that a sort of ” truth in media” standard is placed, with deep accountability for dishonest, fake news.

Make an example out of these reporters, disgrace them, make them irrelevant, and fine the parent organizations for their duplicity.

Although I’ve known this for years, Sal Alinsky’s ” rules for radicals” works both ways.

Rule number 7? Is attack the individual, which is weaker then the orginization. In this,application bring heat on the specific reporter, enough, they change or their,gone.

HAM Radio Open Discussions • Re: baofang radio

January 14, 2017 Scoutmaster 0

Most of the newer Hts are horribly expensive, The Baofang and the like cheap radios are really doing very little to drive down the prices on the brand name ones. What I have done is to watch for the much older brand name equipment I have bought the Icom, yaesu, kenwood hand held’s for $50 to $75 each. some 20 to 30 years old and still work like new some even look new.

There are many that are in rough shape, but many times you will also find then that are all most like new. Many of them either cover the emergency services and marine bands with a slight mod or some just as they are. Most of these radios have battries that will last for a long time when still giving 4 or 5 watts out. They have a good strong BNC antenna connector rather than a mini something or other that will break with normal use. Lots of drop in charger on the market and even just a normal charger for the batteries. Many have AA and AAA cases that can be used on them so you have a verity of ways to power the radio. If you drop them and break the volume or squelch control’s if you have any repair ability you can take it apart and repair it. Try doing that with a Baofang or for that matter some of the new brand name radios.

Don’t get me wrong I think some of the cheap ones have there place as in practice and simulated events
rather than put the ware and tare on the radios you plan to use during an event. That is where the big differences came up for us if you drop it or two people on patrol talking to each other one with the older radios and the other person with the cheap rig it shows up quickly.

We all need something we can depend on for who knows how long. I really hate to see people buy and depend something and then find it will not give what they expect..That really apply s to people that only buy one or two radios have no back ups for what ever reason. Family radios are really great for that for that. It says right on the package up to 15 miles. Many people feel that will be enough buy it put it away and will get a big surprise when they need it. In the real world you are lucky if you get a mile. Drop it and it quits.

I really have no idea how many people or groups are out there that really do drills practice and use the equipment they plan on using. after talking to many many of those it seems not many. So if we can’t talk them unto trying out the equipment at least they should know what to depend on and what not to.

Just my two cents.
