Turkey – With a Side of Woo-Woo

Well, here we go – a probable record cold Thanksgiving Day ahead, particularly in the Northeast:

This will also likely be a record setting weekend not just for travel, but for online sales as Black Friday comes tomorrow.

Wait!  What About Economics?

Yes,. of course that is still our “stock-in-trade.”  With the markets closed for a Thursday off and with only a half-day tomorrow, what do you want me to tell you?

  • As we told our Peoplenomics.com subscribers it might, the markets Wednesday rallied a tiny bit above the forecast rally and then closed lower.
  • We’re still looking for a bit more sideways to upward action perhaps through early Monday.
  • However, if you look at our October 26th comments here (and earlier for subscribers) Our projected decline from Nov. 9 has resulted in lots of subscribers having a “second helping” of dough for Black Friday…
  • The “Only Chart That Matters” will be updated twice a week now until we bust out of the current rhyming profile with 1929.
  • As of this morning, the Bitcoins are down to $4,441 and change.  Digital tulips, the whole lot of ’em.  If you’re still a True Believer in the hype, do take some time this weekend to read the Bank for International Settlements assessment.  I’m not just a nutter in the woods on this stuff; the gnomes of banking see it the same way.
  • Overnight, global markets were mixed.  Japan was up a tad, China more so, but Europe is playing “catching down” to the Colonies.

We look for markets to be much lower a week from now.  The Global Mood is darkening and being long is out on the window ledge.  May not be able to talk it back in.

So What About the Woo-Woo?


Well, you know about the CDC Romaine lettuce recall – and throw out all your Romaine until cleared by the Feds.  Last we heard, it was being traced to a polluted irrigation canal.

But, here’s the weird part.

Elaine and I are normally two of the biggest eaters of Romaine you will meet.  A cup and a half of “Hearts of Romaine” and we toss on either some blue cheese of Italian dressing.  Spritz with Parm cheese. (Slowly, I’m transitioning out of being a meat-a-vore to someone who uses meat consumption as an accompaniment.)

Now to the weird part: Elaine had gone to the store Monday to stock up on a few things  ($237 worth of things, lol).

Tuesday morning as the word of the recall began to sink in, I went over to the house (from the office) and asked Elaine how much Romaine we’d have to throw out?

Funny you would ask…just heard about the recall on WOAI.  When I was shopping yesterday, I don’t know why but I decided to buy iceberg lettuce instead….”

“You NEVER buy iceberg…you tell me you hate it…Why’d you buy it instead of Romaine?”

There was just something…I don’t know…but I bought three heads of iceberg and didn’t get any Romaine at all…”

Opening the fridge she proudly displayed three heads of iceberg lettuce…

Naturally, I was pleased as punch.  No waste…and what’s more, no e. coli.  But we’ve been married for almost 19-years now…and Elaine’s never gotten iceberg lettuce.  Until this week.

Odd little coincidence, I figured.  Makes you wonder…

This kind of stuff happens to us all the time.  Can’t say why – because I have no clue.  It just does.

My latest encounter with “the woo” was putting the finishing touches on the old Heathkit SB-303 receiver I’ve been “dialing-in” over on the electronics workbench.

The radio has a small circuit breaker and it’s held in place by a tiny very oddball sized screw.  Wasn’t in the radio when it arrived in my “operating room.”

Since I will be wrapping up this morning, I spent a restless night figuring this way (and that) to get the circuit breaker mounted without the required oddball screw.  Finally, I concluded it was time to SuperGlue to hold it in place.  Hate to do that, but sometimes there’s no option.

Fast-forward to this morning:  there we were in “the studio” about 5 AM this morning, Elaine, Zeus the Cat, and me, having coffee and chatting about why Alexa can’t print to E’s wireless laser printer on a voice command without getting an HP app involved…when…wait!

What’s this???  A tiny screw under my socks?

Except for requiring a bit of countersinking, it was exactly the screw I needed… Well, I’ll be damned…

You see, Life is like that a lot for us out here in the woods.  Almost like something or someone – the Big Unseen – takes care of us.

Some of my friends don’t hold Thanksgiving quite the same as we do.  My buddy Gaye, for example, has a different take on the day over on her site.

We don’t claim to understand the HOW of Universe works, though maybe since Elaine and I are working on dreams and such.  Just can’t say…

As this Thanksgiving rolled around, we decided not to do turkey…We’ll save that for next week when my consigliere comes in.

Instead, a proper use of the day is for serious appreciating of all the fine adventures we have enjoyed together.  Like this this Thanksigiving years ago…

Until tomorrow, when millions will be getting “credit card burn” let me leave you with something to think about – advice of one Max Tegmark:

“My Advice is to go out and do Really Interesting Things so the Simulators don’t shut you down.”

RFO and gimme an Amen, brother…

…’moron the morrow, eh?

  1. The photo reminds me of the Thanksgiving Raft Ups that we started in the Chesapeake. My Lady received a 22 lb turkey (not me!) from her company, so I dismember it and put it in my 30″ Webber. The webber was on the deck close to our pier. Mesquite smoked for 3 1/2 hours and presto a delicious bird. Additional liveaboards brought the smashed potatoes, pumpkin pies, etc and off we went! Great times and still going on the last that I heard.

    Give thanks to the Creator for all you have, with humbleness.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving George and Elaine. Haven’t bought lettuce or greens from the store for years. Started out with a couple of Aerogardens and then onto a homebuilt rig on a shelving unit. Got my first stab at Arduino on it. Only way to go and never any brown Iceberg. What happened to your hydroponic set up?

    Why yes, Ure the only internet activity for me today. Grandkids and big dinner and probably some time in the shop later when everyone goes home.

    Peace 73.

  3. I don’t always remember to do the gratitude exercise when I first awaken, but when I do, it works just like Jim Stovall says. You can’t have a bad day when you start it with gratitude. Thanksgiving on only one day a year is dumb.

  4. “Can’t say why”…. the woo woo stuff…well, the wife and I took a wedding anniversary trip about two months ago, wife wanted to go to Sicily, rent a car and see the sights, sounded great but something told me don’t go there. Instead we went to Spain but the wife wasn’t so happy about it especially during one day that it was raining. She was tormenting me a bit because we didn’t go to Sicily, where it’s “always” sunny.
    Then she gets a message from her sister “Be glad you didn’t go to Sicily”. It seems that the exact area we had planned to go to and drive around in got hit with horrific flooding, cars were washed off the highway, roads collapsed, deaths etc.
    She asked me why I didn’t want to go there…. “Can’t say why.”

  5. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Going to pick up my daughter and head to the folks for a bit.

    About a month agox My dear friend Rosina was in a head on collision on hwy 2 by Monroe, wa. She was doing 60 the other guy who went to pass a car in the fog was doing 65. Horrific car crash. Both her daughters were medevac to Harborview and she went to Providence in Everett. They are very lucky to be alive. They just got out of the hospital yesterday. Rosina with her shattered leg, broken neck and her arm fractured in 12 places had nothing for Thanksgiving. So i brought her a 20 lb Turkey and all the fixens and her mother flew over from back east and is cooking it all up. So, i will be stopping by to see her for a little bit, because she demanded i eat some of the food i got her. Lol

    She is really good people. Im so busy with work i stood her up 3 or 4 times for a date because i had to work late. So she gave me a hard time about having to get in an accident for me to come spend some time with her. Cute little thing 5’6 125 lbs. I actually like her alot. Very down to earth.

    So, rhe universe provides. We shall see.

    Have a womdeful 4 day weekend. May you all be blessed abundantly.

    Try to come around more. :)

    • So sad to hear about Rosina. My best wishes, hopes and prayers for her full recovery, and that of her daughters. I hope that you’ll all share a great meal and some quality time.

    • Andy – The Cadillac is the way to go. You can never have enough horsepower & plushness, and a smooh ride. I would go with black with tan leather seats. Shows you are a man to contend with.

  6. Hope Ure Thanksgiving is Happy, and same to all the other readers that hang out here.
    God Bless All.

  7. George I want to pass this on as you mentioned going on a protein less program. About 6 mo ago started taking a protein supplment recommended by Dr frank Shallenberger. It is called Perfect Amino and comes from Advanced Bionutrionals. I was taking 5 tablets a day but about 2 months ago found out was suppose to take 10 a day. Really started getting muscles back that lost in a fat reduction program. No protein except the tabs. Two weeks ago had my annual VA physical. My doc spent about 5 minutes looking at his computer and said see you next year. Got my lab results in the mail next day and first time ever had everything 100% in range. Everything. Here is the kicker. I was 84 the week of the physical and have never had perfect labs. You can do your own research if interested. Very happy camper.

  8. G, I have a question regarding your light therapy project.

    As I was looking into what could help damaged skin, I came across a write up from a person who searched forthe same thing I am looking for. One of the items he listed was Red LED light. Quoting here, “Red LED light is one of the best things for restoring elastin, and some German researchers shed light on how it works. The LED light changes the molecular structure of a glue-like layer of water on elastin, the protein that provides elasticity in skin, blood vessels, heart and other body structures. The light strips away those water molecules that are involved in the immobilization of elastin, gradually restoring its elastic function and thus reducing facial wrinkles. Red LED is featured, along with ultrasound, on the Truth Vitality Lux Renew ($279 in the shop).”

    So, since you’ve experimented with light, have you used red, and if so, have you noticed if red had improved your skin? I’m fascinated with usingthe lights, but still do not know how you’ve gone about it. Thanks!

    • Sure – there are two articles in the PN library – search the master index page and find the word “crown”

      One of my projects over the long weekend (along with 10-mm others) is to bu8ild another one. I wear it three to 5 times per week, but after about 2 weeks of use I have to ‘swear off’ for a month – since I am a high energy person to begin with, but this is just absurd…

      Elaine was diagnosed by 2 eye docs with ARMD four or five year sback and she went on an experimental therapy using red light and her eyeas have not deteriorate (minor focus change but the macula looks like the rest of her now – Good!)
      The diagnosis “changed” as the therapy went on. She was using skillfully applied red light under an MD’s supervision and doing a 3 minjtes per day per eye, oone day on, one off for three weeks a month and nothing for the fourt week.

      I would suggest you keep an eye (no pun intended) on the work of https://lumithera.com and others that are on the frontier of this stuff. Mine experiment was directed at “subtle energy” and vitality and I made AND DO NOT MAKE any health claims.
      That said, a person with a sharp mind who can study up on 660-900 nm near infrared and infrared (IR) and understands the risks and dangers might want to have a meaning conversation with their medical professional after reading everything on red LED treatments on https://pubmed.gov Go ahead and search.

      Keep us posted.

      My little 4 Led’s on the center of the forehead and 4 over the right and left trigemnical nerve pack seem to have an effacatious effect which is what I was after.

      The maion notion is this was one of those “ideas” that had long and very deep historical roots. There is some suggestion in the literature that different rooms withing the pyramids were devoted to certain colors (healing frequencies) and there is much evidence (which is why I styarted building light crowns for personal use) that in times of yore, crowns held gems with open backs around the head in particular arrangements. These were said to increase strength, wisdom strength and so forth.

      There is an outfit selling a LED training table for ahtletes that is said to result in measurable increases of 5-10 percent in atheletic performance…. Don’t think that’d fly with the FDA, but look at the literature because thart’s where the future is.

      to my way of thinking – and this is whether you are talking crowns or breastplates (such as those described in the Bible) there are “energiies” that if pumpped back into a human seem to amplify our nature potential. The FDA is in an awkward place we do not envy. We envision a time not far into the future when home consumption of certain frequency LEDS will become like controlled substances as corporations and medical schoole “rediscover” old knowlledge such as we’ve been tracking down.

      Again – talk to your doctor…do NOT use lasers of LED lights unless you know what you are doing and have professonal guidance. I hope that’s enough to make the regulatory people chill, lol. We do not practice medicine – that’s what doctors are for.

    • Good info, along with the PN articles. I’m currently studying fNIRS imaging as a poor cousin to fMRI, yet with certain advantages. It seems that most human tissue is largely transparent to wavelengths of around 700 to 900 nm. This allows penetration of tissue, including the skull, to a depth of around 4 cm, and using differential oxy-Hb/deoxy-Hb absorption, along with a lot of DSP, functional imaging can be done. The tech is compatible with most other imaging technologies. Only the cortex can be imaged without excess power levels, except in neonates, but it’s an evolving technology.

      I’ve also noted positive personal effects using 680 nm LED light, though I need to refine my light sources and modulation. There’s lots of research yet to be done. Of course YMMV and you’re responsible for your own health, etc.

      • IOW Mike is not an MD… It’s OK around here to be super smart and not flash prof memberships, lol.

  9. Last night I got to have dinner with the few family members still living in this state. We had Thanksgiving early so my dear daughter can visit with her in-laws today. It was heartwarming in a different kind of way than I’d have expected.

    I’m truly glad to be able to appreciate such things. I hope others can too.

    Many thanks to George and Elaine (and comment contributors) for some great insights and info over the years!

  10. bis is old news that was back in June .if you going to keep up with crypto you going to have to keep up with it at least weekly this stuff is changing very very fast just like our technology changes very very fast.

    If you remember they said that Bitcoin was going to go down the tubes in the summertime but it didn’t do it and it’s still not down in the tubes it has value as long as I own some it has value and I can trade it for something of value and yes the banks are trying to go centralize so they can take control over it but digibyte is decentralized and it’s the best coin with security on the market it will surpass all the rest in years to come.

    If you want to get an idea how big this thing is ask Google to give you a list of all the Bitcoin ATMs around the world then you can snub your nose up at that old bis news.

    And who’s in control of the bis the fed that’s right though centralized bankers and that’s who Trump is going to put out out of business.

  11. Trump and Border shutdown

    I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving but there’s going to be thousands of people next year that aren’t going to have a Thanksgiving because there’s about 62000 people they’re on that Federal indictment list and it looks like this is going to be there last Thanksgiving.

  12. I noticed there were no Chemtrails yesterday I guess even chemtrail Pilots get Thanksgiving off with their families
