I haven’t posted here for a while as malware removal and link repairs have used up time.

But after a very enjoyable month as Santa Jay,  it’s time to start again.

Lots has happened in the world, my life and yours that I could have commented on.

But after dreaming about this topic, I awoke several nights ago thinking about my experience with gold and silver investing.

Several years ago, I bought some silver coins.  When I got the coins that cost more than spot price, I became the recipient of two years of the company’s newsletter.   Well after several years when the price was up and I needed some cash, I thought to sell the coins.

The local coin shop wouldn’t pay spot price but only about a third of it, so the could make their big profit.

So I sold them back to the people I’d bought them from.    They paid spot price, less two more years of their newsletter, which I didn’t want.    But they had the cons, so what could I do?

A great investment but not so great when selling.

Then I got gold and silver options with a firm that you could “buy, sell, or trade at any time” or so they said each time I called.

I was going to sell out the silver options when the price hit $20 an ounce.

For a while as the prices rose, I received monthly earned income off of those options.  Then one day my broker wasn’t there anymore but at another firm.

I was assigned a new guy to work with.  he seemed very interested in my investment.   One day he called and said I might have to sell or lose money when the prices went down.  A while later, he called back and said it was a false alarm but that he’d watch it carefully.

If the price went down by Friday, I should sell, so call him on Friday.

Friday I called from my home in the Mountain Time zone.   The firm was in the Eastern Time zone.

I called, again hearing that I could buy, sell, or trade at any time.  My broker was at lunch and he never came back the rest of the day.  I called several times before 4 pm ET.  He wasn’t back yet i was told.  Could I sell like we’d planned?  No, I had to work with him I was told.

So much for buy, sell, or trad at any time.

The following Monday the price fell and I’d lose it all unless I bought the difference.

I foolishly did.

But the prices rose and I could make it all back, my original investment and the makeup investment.

I waited until the price was $22 per oz.

But then could not sell as the firm had been shut down by the Feds.

The owner of the firm had been caught driving home one day with $29 million in gold bullion in his car.

That wasn’t all, for months he’d been going to their bank and in two withdrawals daily, taking out several thousand dollars at a time, which when combined equaled more that $10 grand a day.  The feds had established that when $10 grand or more a day was withdrawn form someone’s account, the federal government was to be informed so as to check on preventing some illegal action.  Be cause he took less that that out with each withdrawal, even though the daily total was more than $10 grand, the bank didn’t think anything of it.

Over time the owner had embezzled  all the funds of the company and all invested funds as they came in.   That’s why the broker who paid me dividends was let go and why I couldn’t sell that Friday, and why the broker working with me was told to go home and not come back that day.  There were no funds to pay out with.  The owner had them all.

Well, he was caught and given 12 years in prison with furloughs for certain reasons, health, family needs etc. And ordered by the courts to pay back $19 million to investors.

There was no money, so the feds sold all the assets of the company even down to the office furniture.

A law firm  came to represent the victimized investors.   They got judgments against all senior officers of the company.

A judgement is of no value unless  a property or something is sold to satisfy the judgement.  But the court can’t sell ones’s house to get this judgement paid, so these were practically worthless to the investors.

Even firm consultants had judgments brought against them amounting to their full consulting fees.  One such consultant was in legal trouble for some shady investment dealings he done and in order to stay out of prison before the trial, his family posted a bail bond of $200,000. I don’t know the result of his trial, but that amount was more than the consulting fee he’d received form the gold and silver firm I was involved with. How could he pay the Judgement when the court has 200 grand of his family’s money?

The bank involved was bought out by a larger banking group so the lawyers went after them and an agreement was made that the bank owed 1.3 million dollars to satisfy their error as the new bank owner  they’d assumed all parts of the smaller bank with it’s purchase, even their debts and mistakes.

That would be a nice amount, however the judge awarded the lawyers for the victims hourly wages and the lawyers for the bank hourly wages. Who ever heard of the losing lawyers getting paid?  That left very littler for the investors.

One man from Atlanta, Ga., who I spoke to on the phone, had invested $140 grand, one man $538 grand, I only lost 21,400 (after what I did receive earlier form them).

After pocketing nearly 3/4 of a million from the deal, the lawyers for the victims made the handsome sum of one cent on the dollar pay out to the victims.  I got $214.  The man who invested $538 grand got 1 cent on the dollar too.  Between the time of the collapse of the company and the settlement, he had died, thus his heirs pay out wouldn’t even have paid for his funeral.

Who got all the money?

The company owner, who never paid a cent back, the Attorneys for the victims, other attorneys and the courts.

You know if people believed the Biblical command “Thou Shalt Not Steal” no investor would have lost money.

 

Comment about a video clip

Comment about a video clip
6/26/2021
Today I watched a video clip of an actress on a late night talk show.
It was from several years ago.
The actress said that genetic testing showed she was more Irish that she had been told by her family who said the family was mostly Scottish and Welsh, She said they were thus proven wrong.
She obviously doesn’t know much about the connections between Scotland and Ireland.
At one time the kingdom of Ireland was the west coast of Scotland and the northern tip of the island of Ireland. And the Welch don’t live millions of miles away either.
And genetic testing? How many gene pools was she tested against?
I’ve found from genealogical records that she is a 10th cousin of mine. I Didn’t need genetic testing to show that.
I did some online searching:
SIL Ethnologue lists six living Celtic languages, of which four have retained a substantial number of native speakers. These are the Goidelic languages (i.e. Irish and Scottish Gaelic, which are both descended from Middle Irish) and the Brittonic languages (i.e. Welsh and Breton, which are both descended from Common Brittonic); these are Insular Celtic languages-Wikipedia
There is a shared root between the native languages of Ireland (Irish) and the Scottish Highlands (Scots Gaelic). Both are part of the Goidelic family of languages, which come from the Celts who settled in both Ireland and Scotland.
Modern residents of Scotland and Ireland won’t share much DNA with these ancient ancestors. Instead, they can trace most of their genetic makeup to the Celtic tribes that expanded from Central Europe at least 2,500 years ago.Apr 20, 2021
https://whoareyoumadeof.com/blog/what-is-the-ireland-and-scotland-dna-ethnicity-on-ancestry/
What is the Ireland and Scotland DNA Ethnicity on Ancestry?
The Ireland and Scotland DNA region on Ancestry is located in the British Isles and covers all of Ireland, including Northern Ireland, and all of Scotland. DNA from this region is also commonly found in Wales and parts of England and France. (Celtic)
Scot, any member of an ancient Gaelic-speaking people of Ireland or Scotland in the early Middle Ages. … Originally (until the 10th century) “Scotia” denoted Ireland, and the inhabitants of Scotia were Scotti.
Scot | ancient people | Britannica https://www.britannica.com › topic › Scot
So the actress”s family wasn’t wrong at all. The actress just didn’t know enough.

 

Hillsdale College comes to St. George

Posted by on 14 May 2021 | Tagged as: blog

Hillsdale College comes to St. George
May 13, 2021, Hillsdale college of Michigan sent emissaries to St. George,Utah.
People from St. George, Ivins, Hurricane, Santa Clara, Cedar City attended a Hillsdale College Symposium at the beautiful Entrada at Snow Canyon Country Club.
They learned about Hillsdale College and it’s mission to teach the principles and heritage of this great country, the United States of America, to give “an education designed to equip human beings for self government”.
Howard Kaloogian the national planned giving associate at Hillsdale college, (lawyer, former California State assemblyman, and adjunct professor at the Thomas Jefferson School of Law) taught how to bypass capital gains taxes, turn real estate into a lifetime income, and tax saving ways to distribute IRA and other assets into one’s estate by giving to the college.
Then after a luncheon provided under a canopy on the lawn, Dr. Khalil Habib, associate professor of politics, addressed those attending with what one man called, “The best speech I’ve heard in 50 years.”
As a naturalized citizen who came here from Lebanon, Habib understands what it is like to lose everything to oppressive government and war and why the American way is the best way for peace and happiness in the world.
John Cervini, Jr., Vice President for Institutional Advancement was also in attendance and spoke briefly. Along with a staff who were very kind and accommodating to the attendees.
Hillsdale College has an outreach program in online courses, K to 12 charter schools nationwide, and their free publication “IMPRIMIS” that reaches over 5,600,000 readers monthly and is ever growing in circulation. That little magazine talks about truth and current affairs and the proper role of government in the American tradition.

Hillsdale College is striving to teach everyone the truths about our constitutional government.

What I’ve learned in the building and repair business, I learned from my father and mother

Posted by on 07 May 2021 | Tagged as: blog

What I’ve learned in the building and repair business, I learned from my father and mother.)
I grew up in a small town during the 1950s and 1960s.
My father wore many hats. He was a fruit farmer and ran other farming operations to provide for his family. But it didn’t stop there. Like all farmers, he had to be a jack of all trades.
He was the town employee doing plumbing, pruning, spraying, animal control and all the other things involved in running the town.
Of course we children helped out with all of it. We did farm work, picking fruit, drying and bottling fruit, pruning, milking the cows(that was my job), butchering, chopping firewood, mowing hay, hauling hay, irrigating, plowing, cultivating, rebuilding wood boxes and crates for use and sale, tending to the rabbit, the chickens, helping with the laundry. (My mother ran a commercial laundry service for the two large trucking companies what started in our town and did work rags for the garages. We helped with that too.) I started driving a tractor at a very young age. I didn’t go to kindergarten schooling but helped my Dad which made me feel awfully important.
We also helped with the town work. Helped make cement meter boxes, rebuild water meters, read water meters, cleaned the water springs, walked the pipelines looking for leaks, repairing broken lines, lighting the smug pots along the main road(Highway 91 was the major roadway between Utah and California) when a new main water line was installed, pruning and spraying roadside shrubs, sold dog tags, even helped with the distasteful task of putting some dogs down.
We helped Dad and Mom, do electrical work, plumbing, carpentry at home too.
Of course, we attended school from the first of September to the end of May each year.
Dad also worked other jobs. For the highway department and trucking companies. He had a janitorial service servicing two trucking companies and one garage. He had a landscaped business mowing lawns, re-seeding lawns, watering and the like. We did that for two family doctors, our dentist and the dry cleaners for trade labor for services and many separate places for pay. We boys got to do those jobs too.
One was for a man. Eric Snow, who owned a few buildings near his house. Two rental houses and the dry cleaners that one of his sons owned and operated, and a big corner building that housed Eric’s furniture store, a barbershop. and apartments up three stories from the basement to the top. Part of the store had a metal roof. I helped my Dad repair it and my older brother and I painted apartments for Eric. One day he told the both of us that we should go into maintenance for our future work as he was in that field and thought we should be too.
One place was the state Fish and Game checking station. We’d push the gas lawn mower down to the gas staion next to the checking station, buy a tank of gas, mow the lawn, get more gas, push the mower home and mow at the house.
Dad encouraged us to get our own jobs. One year he got a job for us with a farming company that raised and sold onions nationwide.
I acquired two mowing jobs in my town. Both of those people had their own mower, so I didn’t need to use my dad’s mower. One was across the street from our house and the other 2 blocks to the west, it was on a hillside. Weekly I’d mow those lawns in the summers. With the money from those jobs and the onion job, I’d buy my school clothes each fall. The work with dad was for the family.
Most of the family jobs were in the big town to the east of us. That’s where we went to school from 7th grade on.
Later while still doing this kind of work, my father was doing yard work for a couple who owned the local radio station in the big town east of us.
I was helping. At around 13-14 years of age, my voice had changed from an angelic boy soprano to a bass. The lady thought my voice good and hired me then and there for an announcer at the radio station. Of course I had to train with her for two years after school and take a test for a radio telephone operator’s license when 16. I did and worked there for three years after school and summers, when not busy at other work. My Dad had gotten me the job.
In school I was in wood and metal shop and Agricultural sciences (even butchering was studied). When in my twenties, the state of Utah sent a survey to former students to see if any of the industrial-vocational courses in school had helped me acquire employment as an adult.
I responded that all the jobs I had had (fork lift operator, Janitor, electrician, working for a power company (as meter reader, line worker, power plant operator, inspector), warehouse man, concrete worker, carpenter, roofer, construction maintenance, radio announcer, acting, singing, office work, sales and more, had been because of the teachings received from my father and my mother. Not from the schooling.
But both of my parents insisted that we go to school, even college. They’d not had much formal schooling and felt we needed all we could get in order to have a successful working life to provide well for our families.
So I, my two brothers and my sister all went to college.
One of my father’s orchard’s was specifically planted as our “college fund orchard.”
I did study German in school which I use today.
One brother studied art and is a professional artist.
Our father remembered his adopted mother speaking German in the home but he never learned to. He was an artist though not professional like his older brother.
Our mother loved to read, so we learned to love reading too.
My parents taught me to work and I still do.
What my parents taught me has gotten me employment throughout my life.

 

Conspiracy Theories

Posted by on 26 Apr 2021 | Tagged as: blog

Conspiracy Theories
When I was 23 years old and newly married, my wife and I managed the American Opinion Bookstore in Provo, Utah. One of the books we carried was  “None Dare Call It Conspiracy” by Gary Allen
cover none dare call it conspiracy
“This book is a primer for anyone who wishes to understand the basic workings of the global network of Insiders that is determined to wield power over all of mankind in the coming New World Order. The Special Edition is updated with illustrations and charts for 2013. Introduction by U.S. Congressman John G. Schmitz: The story you are about to read is true. The names have not been changed to protect the guilty. This book may have the effect of changing your life. After reading this book, you will never look at national and world events in the same way again.”
“By sheer volume, the “experts” will try to ridicule you out of investigating for yourself as to whether or not the information in this book is true. They will ignore the facts, saying that the author is about to conjecture. They will find a typographical error or argue some point that is open to debate. If necessary they will lie in order to protect themselves by smearing this book. I believe those who pooh-pooh the information herein because psychologically many people would prefer to believe we are fine, because we all like to ignore bad news. We do so at our own peril.”
You can buy a copy from Amazon @ https://www.amazon.com/None-Dare-Call-Conspiracy-Allen/dp/1939438004
Why did he say that?
Are there conspiracies that intend to do evil for power and gain in the world ?
What does the word conspiracy mean?
Recently a woman emailed me that she didn’t read “conspiracy theories”.
Implying that something that she refers to as a “conspiracy theory” isn’t true.
Let’s examine the word and what it means.
Conspiracy: : the act of conspiring together
What does conspiring mean: as a transitive verb it means to PLOT, to CONTRIVE;
as an intransitive verb it means 1a: to join in a secret agreement to do an unlawful or wrongful act or 2: an act which becomes unlawful as a result of the secret agreement,
examples: being accused of conspiring to overthrow the government or to conspired to monopolize and restrict trade
b: SCHEME
2: to act in harmony toward a common end
Examples: Circumstances conspired to defeat his efforts.
… the sun and the wind conspired to make splinters out of solid wood.
— B. J. Oliphant
To scheme to obtain wealth at all costs.
This woman believes that there are no secret agreements, evil or other wise, that exist in the world today.
Let us look at what the Book of Mormon has to say about secret agreements.
Wikipedia states that secret combinations as outlined in the Book of Mormon:
A term that describes a malignant secret society of “people bound together by oaths to carry out the evil purposes of the group.” Secret combinations were first discussed in the Book of Mormon, which was published in 1830 by Joseph Smith. The most notable example of a secret combination is the Gadianton robbers, a conspiracy throughout much of the narrative of the Book of Mormon. According to the Joseph Smith Translation of the Bible, Cain also entered a secret combination with Satan and became Master Mahan.
The Book of Mormon denounces secret combinations as “most abominable and wicked above all, in the sight of God.” They are also considered to be one of the signs that a people is ripe for the Lord’s vengeance, and according to the Book of Mormon, in the last days, they will be prevalent on the earth.
Moroni also warns that the Gentiles of the latter day should repent of their sins and not allow that “murderous combinations get above you, which are built up to get power and gain.” Moroni goes on to warn that anyone who builds up a secret combination “seeketh to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries; and it bringeth to pass the destruction of all people, for it is built up by the devil, who is the father of all lies.”
What are secret societies?
Definition of secret society: any of various oath-bound societies often devoted to brotherhood, moral discipline, and mutual assistance
Wikipedia continues:
Moroni tells an example of a secret combination in the story of a son, Jared, who rebels against his father Omer, the Jaredite king of the land. After trying once and not succeeding in the overthrow of his father, Jared’s daughter tells him of the power of conspiracy and refers to ancient writings of “secret plans to obtain kingdoms and great glory.” She devises a plan to establish her father as ruler of the land, telling him that she can dance for Akish, a man of authority, and entice him. If Akish is pleased with her and desires to wed her, as a condition he must agree to deliver the head of Jared’s father, King Omer. To fulfill Jared’s wish, Akish forms a circle of men who swear upon their lives that they will never divulge the secret, their plot, or the identities of their brethren. To join the secret group, one has to perform a series of oaths administered by Akish. Moroni explains that the promises or covenants are “kept up by the power of the devil” through the ages.
After finishing the account, Moroni tells of the effect the secret combination had upon the nation: “They have caused the destruction of this people of whom I am now speaking, and also the destruction of the people of Nephi.”
Another group said to be practicing secret combinations in the Book of Mormon are the Gadianton robbers.
What about today? Were these just stories of the past?
Modern LDS prophets, President and councilors, the 12 Apostles and the Patriarch are sustained generally twice yearly, and locally throughout the world in stake and ward conferences as “Prophets, Seers, and Revelators”.
President David O. McKay spoke of a Socialist-Communist Conspiracy.
“… the fight against the Godless socialist-communist conspiracy …”
Why did he use that awful word conspiracy?
https://www.dialoguejournal.com/wp-content/uploads/sbi/articles/Dialogue_V37N02_49.pdf
Read more from this: https://www.latterdayconservative.com/david-o-mckay/lds-church-statement-on-communism/
Have other Prophets, Seers, and Revelators said anything about it?
Wikipedia continues:
During the Cold War, Ezra Taft Benson, an apostle of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), repeatedly described communism as a secret combination. As church president, Benson stated that “a secret combination that seeks to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries is increasing its evil influence and control over America and the entire world.”
Another LDS Church leader, Bruce R. McConkie of the Council of the Seventy, claimed, “Reliable modern reports describe their existence among gangsters, as part of the governments of communist countries, in some labor organizations, and even in some religious groups.”
LDS Church apostle M. Russell Ballard described secret combinations as including “gangs, drug cartels, and organized crime families… They have secret signs and code words. They participate in secret rites and initiation ceremonies. Among their purposes are to ‘murder, and plunder, and steal, and commit whoredoms and all manner of wickedness, contrary to the laws of their country and also the laws of their God.'”
LDS Church President Gordon B. Hinckley compared modern terrorists to the “Gadianton robbers, a vicious, oath-bound, and secret organization bent on evil and destruction.”
Okay then, what has the current President said:
“In coming days, it will not be possible to survive spiritually without the guiding, directing, comforting, and constant influence of the Holy Ghost.
In like manner, what will your seeking open for you? What wisdom do you lack? What do you feel an urgent need to know or understand? Follow the example of the Prophet Joseph. Find a quiet place where you can regularly go. Humble yourself before God. Pour out your heart to your Heavenly Father. Turn to Him for answers and for comfort.
Pray in the name of Jesus Christ about your concerns, your fears, your weaknesses—yes, the very longings of your heart. And then listen! Write the thoughts that come to your mind. Record your feelings and follow through with actions that you are prompted to take. As you repeat this process day after day, month after month, year after year, you will “grow into the principle of revelation.”

So someone speaks of a conspiracy and you want to know whether it is true or fake.
Just follow President Nelson’s advise. Seek personal revelation on the matter.
“…by the power of the Holy ghost, ye may know the truth of all things.”-Moroni 10:5
And speaking to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints,
Do you believe the Book of Mormon to be true?
Do you believe that those men are Prophets, Seers, and Revelators of God?
Do you accept the book of the Doctrine and Covenants as scripture from God?

Doctrine and Covenants 89:
4 Behold, verily, thus saith the Lord unto you: In consequence of evils and designs which do and will exist in the hearts of conspiring men in the last days, I have warned you, and forewarn you, by giving unto you this word of wisdom by revelation.
Doctrine and Covenants 123:
13 Therefore, that we should waste and wear out our lives in bringing to light all the hidden things of darkness, wherein we know them; and they are truly manifest from heaven—
14 These should then be attended to with great earnestness.
Secret combinations, conspiracies, exist and their doings exist.
We should not dismiss them as fake by the term “conspiracy theories”.
Read the book and articles and then pray when someone presents something you think to be a “conspiracy theory”. Then you’ll know whether it’s fake or not.

Silent Spring and Summer 2019

Posted by on 08 Mar 2021 | Tagged as: blog

I spent 3 weeks in Austria in July and August 2019.

I stayed at a friend’s house that was on the edge of a small town by a stream with mountains beyond the neighboring fields.

The man’s daughter and her husband who took care of him brought this to my attention.

The lady said that in past years there were butterflies of all kinds and legions of house flies. But this year none.

There were no butterflies, houseflies, no birds singing.

She felt it was from all the chemicals being sprayed all over.

Her man felt it had a lot to do with the still present effects of the Chernobyl disaster.

I spent a lot of time out side in the garden by the stream.

I did see a few small flies, not houseflies, and a couple of white butterflies but hardly any.

And I saw a bird on 2 occasions by the stream and sparrows and pigeons in the  towns at the cafes to get table crumbs.

But the only bird sounds I heard were from crows that flew around and roosted on top of an apartment  house on the far side of the wood lined stream.

I thought of Rachel Carson’s book Silent Spring.

It seems as though the pesticides kill the beneficial insects and don’t ever eradicate the harmful bugs.

I found this on an internet search:

Last year, 40% of honey-bee colonies in the US died. … But the honey bee is just one of many insects in decline — 40% of the world’s insect species are in decline, according to a February 2019 study.
.Jun 21, 2019

Bees and insects dying at record rates are sign of 6th mass …

www.businessinsider.com › Science › News

So what can we do?
Poison is poison and kills the good along with the bad.
 There are natural pest and weed controls that won’t harm beneficial insects or you or I.
Let’s start using those practices.

How Do I Get Rich?

Posted by on 28 Jan 2021 | Tagged as: blog

Have you seen the ads by the rich guru who says: “All you have to do to become rich is buy my program or product”?

How Do I get rich?

Thank you for stopping by to read what I have to say.

I see and hear those things every day.

I been blessed with many things but not so much with money.

How do I get money?

I’ve tried that work really hard thing.

I’ve tried that saving thing.

Have you?

I still have very little cash but lots of work opportunities, even more than I could possibly even do with the time and energy that I have.

How about you?

Now did Abraham of old and King Solomon and many others through out all of human history became very wealthy.

How did they do it?

Did they buy some guru’s program, product, book, course, system?

I don’t think so.

Was it from paying tithing?

From taxing the poor, from gifts, from the chicken that laid golden eggs?

golden egg

What was their source of wealth?

I believe that there are many ways to amass the wealth of the world.

And I believe one can without buying the guru”s stuff.

What do you believe?

 

 

 

The Canaries Are Still Dying: Better Than Silver, Better Than Gold…

Posted by on 29 Dec 2020 | Tagged as: blog

12/29/2020
I once read the following in a book:
Better than silver, better than gold, better than wealth a thousand fold, is a
healthful body, a mind at ease, and simple pleasures that always please.
I had an online association with a man on an online karaoke site who lived in
Australia. He listened and commented about my song recordings and I listened
and commented about his.
One recording of mine was “If I Were A Rich Man”.
In part, his comment about it was: “Funny I Am A Rich Man”.
He loved to sing and could do things to promote his singing that I could only dream of.
But while still in his mid 50s, he wasn’t healthy and eventually died sooner than
most from it.
His wealth couldn’t restore his lost health.
Money alone can never restore one’s health.
Still many in the world spend their youth and health to acquire wealth and then sadly learn that that money won’t restore their youth or health.
When I was young and snow had freshly fallen, my mother would get some of the clean fresh snow and pour milk over it and add sweetening or cinnamon to it to make us a tasty snow treat.
Later, because of open air nuclear testing in Nevada to the west of us, it wasn’t safe to use the snow and she didn’t do it any longer.
Also when I was a boy and went down to the river and upstream to explore, I and those with me would not take any water with us. No need to because the stream had plenty of water and we had learned that after the water ran a few miles in the sunshine over little rapids that it would be purified.
One can’t do that now because of the man made chemicals from upstream that enter the water. Running over rapids in the sun won’t take those chemicals out.
Life is very different these days.
I raise my crops without application of pesticides or herbicides but can’t call my produce organic because I use irrigation water that comes from the river and there are many upstream users of those harmful chemicals and those chemicals leach into the river water.
And making snow cones from fresh snow is just as deadly, because of all the jet fuel, and chemical dumping in the skies that fall to earth and contaminate the snow, water and soil.
I can farm without applying chemicals but the winds, rain, snow, river water are all full of many harmful chemicals that don’t go away quickly or easily.
Is there any way to mitigate these harmful things?
Maybe not but there are many things we can do to eliminate harmful substances from our lives so that we can reduce the harmful effects to ourselves and our loved ones.
This book explores some of the harmful things and some ways to decrease harmful exposure.

Do you need DNA tests to learn of your heritage? No!

Posted by on 25 Dec 2020 | Tagged as: blog

Do you need DNA  tests to learn of your heritage? No!

There has been much said of late by DNA testing companies that people need them to learn their heritage, where they came from.

Don’t buy it.

You can learn much on the free Family search sites and much free information all over the internet and in written records worldwide.

Do you have some time?

Check out this site:

https://www.familysearch.org/register/custom/1?state=https:%2F%2Fwww.familysearch.org%2Fcampaign%2Fmayflower%3Fancestor_pid_1%3DLH2V-RD6&et_cid=1817219&et_rid=77748728&linkid=CTA&cid=em-brc-10035

It’s free to sign up and use.

Genealogists world wide have amassed great volumes of records of our ancestors.

These records on many sites can take us back to Adam and Eve.

The DNA pushers say we originated much earlier with the animals.  They are wrong.

Get your line into royalty, Hebrew records, Chinese records and you can get family lines back many thousands of years and in some instances back to Adam and Eve.

Do you need DNA tests?

No!

They are fun and interesting but not necessary, so save your money and search the records.

Learn about your ancestors free by spending a little time.

Here are some of some of my ancestors that I found:

William Brewster 11th Great Grandfather on the 1st  Mayflower voyage to North America

Wyandanch (Wise Speaker) of the Montauk Tribe 11th Great Grandfather

some English Kings:
