IS 49:1-6


Hear me, O islands,
listen, O distant peoples.
The LORD called me from birth,
from my mother’s womb he gave me my name.
He made of me a sharp-edged sword
and concealed me in the shadow of his arm.
He made me a polished arrow,
in his quiver he hid me.
You are my servant, he said to me,
Israel, through whom I show my glory.

Though I thought I had toiled in vain,
and for nothing, uselessly, spent my strength,
Yet my reward is with the LORD,
my recompense is with my God.
For now the LORD has spoken
who formed me as his servant from the womb,
That Jacob may be brought back to him
and Israel gathered to him;
And I am made glorious in the sight of the LORD,
and my God is now my strength!
It is too little, he says, for you to be my servant,
to raise up the tribes of Jacob,
and restore the survivors of Israel;
I will make you a light to the nations,
that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth.

As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome. Via con Dios.

          1. Modern retail can be very strange. In classical economics, entities price things at their cost plus a normal markup — if their costs go down, they lower prices.

            We currently live in perpetual glut — and the idea is to get people to unthinkingly purchase things at high prices, while shifting the risk of devaluing inventory onward. So you get weird spectacles like Harbor Freight, where six customers in line can be purchasing the exact same items, but no two will pay the same amount.

            The only way to combat this is to continually monitor prices, and buy in bulk when they are in your target price range. To do this, you have to continually “graze” the prices of things. For example, I tend to buy pre-shredded cheese when it’s $2.50 for an 8-ounce bag. I have about a month-and-a-half’s worth of they types I like on-hand. When it’s above my price, I’ll deplete…..when it’s below my my price, I’ll restock.

            But on the retailer side, the price changes a couple of times a week — why? It’s not for people who buy like I do. It’s for people who purchase without looking at the price.

            Liked by 5 people

            1. I don’t have “target ranges” but I do know basic prices and look at sales flyers all the time. We are very fortunate in that within a mile or so we have several major grocery stores plus Aldi’s. So when I see a great bargain, I’m there!
              The vacuum sealer unit was one of the best kitchen purchases I ever made. We just had a London broil cut I bought several months ago at a 2/1 sale that was vacuumed sealed and was as though I just brought it home from the store.
              Our lives have changed considerably with retirement and age and we were definitely ones that dashed in, grabbed whatever needed and went our merry way. For years I couldn’t tell you the price of a half-gallon of milk…if we needed it price wasn’t a factor. Now, I STROLL the aisles of grocery stores (I know, get a life!), armed with my list of bargains to find. Many times I’ll go to at least 3 at the same time…and often see the same people. It’s almost like a game…albeit, an old-people one!

              1. I think because of the dent in the top it does build up a little frost but I deal with it every other year, so not a bad problem. Also, I fill up the bottom layer with jugs of water. It helps stabilize the temperature and would come in handy if the power is out for an extended time. I also use packing air pillows to fill the gaps at the top so freezer doesn’t have to work so hard to keep the air spaces cool.

              2. Not really, it just builds up to the point I relent and unload it all into ice chests so I can let it defrost. Sides are pretty slick so it comes off easy after it’s been unplugged for a while with the lid off.

Actually I put a basic shelf with a closet-style bar for hanging shirts (laundry folding station), placed all my shipping supplies above (outgoing mail station), put it close to my work bench (sanding, light manufacturing station), it’s near an outside entrance (incoming decontamination station). AND that is not all, it also hides the dent I put in the top trying to stand on it for some overhead work! 😉

          3. Gil,
            The secret for dealing with chest freezers is MILK CRATES and ORGANIZING. My freezer is mid sized and has two sliding baskets. It will take 4 milk crates in addition to the baskets. Or 6 crates without the baskets.

            When I stocked my new freezer for this Commie China Crud, I stuffed 3 different veggies* into a large freezer bag. Those bags were then ‘filed’ in a milk crate. A second milk crate (or 2) got home made soups. Another got meats. I haven’t even gotten to putting anything in the baskets since we also have an upright freezer. This means I can find the stuff I want very easily and I can get to the stuff in the bottom of the freezer (the soups)

            *They have vents so you can microwave and that means they freezer burn easier.

                Since my big freezer is in the garage, I am the only one opening it. I have three slipped discs so I HAVE to be organized. My back will not let me bend for very long so searching thru a freezer is off the ‘able to do ‘ list. That is why I have an upright freezer in the house. However with us putting whole bucks and rams and deer in the freezer in the fall, I really needed more room.

          When we were going to build our home we interviewed several builders. One told us that when he was remodeling a restaurant in a rural burb of Chicago, his guys had to shove over a freezer. He said it was so heavy they opened it to remove some cargo. Yes, there was a body on ice. Actually, about 3 years later we learned that 3 bodies of Chicago thugs were dropped in a rural area by a subdivision we almost built in. Thank God we didn’t choose that subdivision. I would have had nightmares like for years.

                Funny thing happened one fall day before we actually were fully moved into our half finished home. I was here waiting for some contractor and was ironing DH’s work shirts. No drapes yet on the windows. Our property was already graded. All of a sudden our property was covered with blackbirds. We had seen Hitchcock’s The Birds. The birds freaked the heck out of me. I was pregnant with hormones running on high, very protective of my pregnant body, no phone yet, and freaking on how I was going to get to my car that was 80 yards away from our door. That was over 50 years ago. It took me many years before I would drive the country back roads at night also. No street lights.

          here is a web site I use to find resources as I rarely find reliable soy free diary/eggs/meat in the grocery stores. Also, might want to ask on local homeschool Facebook as many people who are intentional about their children’s education are also intentional about their food/food sources. Same for milk sources from soy free cows + soy free meat chickens and grass finished beef.

          Note: this is a not a soy free resource list. It is a list of local farmers and then I investigate their feed/practices/conditions from there.

    1. Ever notice that a lot of places have two dominant chains of grocery stores? Where I am, it’s Lucky’s and Safeway. In Greensboro, NC, it was Harris-Teeter and Food Lion. In some places, Kroger is in the mix.

      And have you ever noticed that if one has Coke on sale, the other might have Pepsi on sale — but never has Coke?

      If one has Kraft shredded cheese, the other has Sargento.

      So, how the hell are you supposed to not pay twice what you need to pay for food if you can only visit one store every two weeks?!?!?

      3. And once you get the hang of “interim pricing” you will really save money. The larger stores put an item on sale say this week, next week it will be on sale again but at an even greater discount perhaps even half price. Most people will buy the first week and pay the higher price. You have to really follow the ads to get the hang of it. The pricing on sale items are decided months in advance of the actual sale.

        I was a kid, and my dad took us aside and tried to explain the movie before we went. But he didn’t know the back story. There’s something that ties the three apparently disparate parts of the story together, WHY does this monolith show up all over the place?

        Anyone truly puzzled by it…should go read the book. It’s CRYSTAL clear then, because Arthur C. Clarke explains the motivations of the aliens who put these monoliths all over the place.

            The movie is interesting in another way. It actually is structured like one of those old epics–it may have been the last one–with an overture at the beginning (music with a dark screen) and an intermission in the middle. That used to be routine on longer movies; now Hollywood just tries hard not to make longer movies (Lord of the Rings being a big exception).

    Things are getting weird…and they’re only going to get weirder…

    One of my other neighbors has decided that this…THIS…is the most important time to learn how to ride a unicycle. It’s some sort of unavoidable obsession…he looks young and ambiguously unhappy…he also looks like he only eats half of meal per day…he never seems to stay vertical for very long on that thing…but somehow it all seems very important.

          1. Can freeze raw eggs in shell in a bag for storage. Shells will crack as liquid expands. Let thaw for a couple of minutes, slip off the shell, drop in boiling water. Or slice while frozen and fry. Or let thaw completely (afters slipping off shell before thawing) and scramble. I prefer frozen eggs when poaching them. Also nice for a modified version egg drop soup.

            Can dehydrate scrambled eggs. Not that great when reconstituted. We do it in the pressure cooker and make a savory dish such as rice and other herbs and onions. But can store multiple dozen eggs, scrambled dehydrated and powdered in 1 mason jar. More of a back up than preference.

            We like the frozen eggs when we have excess and sometimes just for fun as frying them is unique and good way to serve. I will sometimes dip and batter the frozen discs of sliced frozen eggs and then fry. Time consuming but nice to have variety in way the morning eggs are served.

  7. What did the fools THINK would happen
    Stupidity:

    “Pennsylvania’s Liquor Control Board announced March 16 that liquor stores would close the next day. The state hoped to keep residents at home, but instead Pennsylvanians flocked to buy booze while they still could. Lines stretched around the block, and sales spiked to $29.9 million in a single day—“the most spent on booze in Pennsylvania in one day, according to complete sales records dating back 12 years,” the Philadelphia Inquirer reported last week.”

    1. A number of states “back east” (as we say here out west) chose to come out of prohibition by having state owned stores sell liquor. I wonder if Pennsylvania is one of them; the way the story was phrased strongly suggested it: “liquor stores would close the next day” as if they are making and executing the decision the next day rather than “liquor stores would be required to close the next day” as if they were making the decision that someone else would have to follow.

    1. The reason something like this is stealthy is that all those flat planes act as mirrors for the radar waves. Unless you hit them dead-on perpendicular, your radar gets reflected away. A more normal ship that has railings and all sorts of protuberances will have some bit of surface–even if it’s small–that will reflect the radar wave back at the receiver. This thing will only reflect radar in a small number of directions, and most likely your receiver won’t be in one of them. (If it is, though, you’ll really see it.) NONE of the surfaces are vertical, which means any radar on a surface vessel will be SOL–the radar will be reflected into the sky or down into the water, depending.

    “….the NEW YORK TIMES…in 2012 documented numerous ways (in which) “fraud is easier by mail” and “vastly more prevalent” than in-person voting. The Times found “votes cast by mail are less likely to be counted, more likely to be compromised and more likely to be contested than those cast in a voting booth.”

    Or example, fraud known as “granny farming” has emerged, where mail ballots are collected en masse from nursing homes, seniors are coerced, and their ballots compromised.

    These flaws, the Times said, “raise questions about the most elementary promises of democracy.”

    The end of the above excellent report is how I also feel:
    …..
    I have always been a very decisive person, and base my decisions on facts and pure intuitive instincts. That said, this is the first time I can honestly say, I am a bit torn here. If we were simply talking about the virus alone, I would say we all need to get back to work before the economy and people’s lives are damaged beyond repair. But, I see the bigger picture and there are a lot of plays happening right now with a lot of moving parts, and I just can’t say what would be in the best interest for people right now. It’s difficult for everyone to watch this play out, experience the effects of it all, and not know what our future holds, but I will always maintain hope and be optimistic about what that future may look like. All I can do at this point, is provide the facts and evidence as they surface, and pray for all of my fellow Americans, and the entire world.
    Stay strong. We can get through this together. I promise.

        Why, then, are so many here focused on children to the complete exclusion of the women? We should, if these “rescues” are happening right now, be finding many more women than children yet no one seems to be citing such.

          1. That would seem to actually reinforce my point.

            Children are marketable, women are marketable, yet ONLY children are being RUMORED to be getting rescued for the last three days (complete with ONE WHOLE PHOTO of smoke pouring out of a storm drain).

              1. Indeed.

                That’s why the *rumors* are about children.

                If there was *realilty* behind them we’d be hearing about “Women and children.” But since they’re fake, they’re “children” only.

  12. Not really a ground report, but something that struck me last night.

    It’s now warm enough to have the windows open, and last night I left them open. What was noticeable was the DEAD SILENCE outside. In the city, there’s always some background noise at all hours of the day and night. Last night – NOTHING.

    No sirens, no gunshots (yes, we hear them. The police say criminals don’t know how to shoot straight), no cars on the main drag, no dogs barking, no owls hunting, no light rail, no trains in the distance, no airplanes – NOTHING.

    It was eerie.

      1. He he. Next doors father lives in Lebanon. He was killed sitting on his front porch. They had a wedding in the village and at muslim weddings in Lebanon it’s tradition to shoot guns in the air. Ffs. Hello? Gravity?

        1. Apparently if you shoot absolutely straight up, the bullet only returns at about 100 MPH (terminal velocity). That happens because the bullet comes to a dead stop at the top of its trajectory, then simply falls to the ground from that height.

          Of course that’s very hard to do; if the arc is just kind of up in the air, it will return to the ground before air has had a chance to slow it down, and there’s a horizontal component to the motion that gravity does nothing to.

      Think they’d light a couple of their own towers on fire and blame the conspiracy theorists to continue their agendas? They always false flaggin like that.”

  13. Just to let you know how bored our local news people are for stories, one headline on the newscast this morning was “Baby Rhino Rolls In Mud.” I am not kidding. The zoo has a new baby rhino at the breeding farm, and it is cute, but really, is that a news item?

  14. Daughn has posted this in the CoronaVirus thread, but the link is CTH twitter feed. I’m blocked from seeing SD’s tweets. Maybe others are, so here is another video of the interaction between J Karl and Fauci. Hadn’t seen the Karl part until this morning. You’re going to watch it several times – and hope POTUS sees it.

    @Lady_Penquin
    So is this the secret, silent communications between the anti-Americans plaguing
    @realDonaldTrump
    & USA? Time to tell Fauci he is no longer needed. Karl should be out of the PC.

    1. Okay…am I missing something…I still haven’t seen the “Karl” gesture. Obviously not that important but it’s frustrating to read about it and still not see it

  15. QUOTE:

    “One thing that would not be happening if a Democrat was president is that you would not see the media trying to pick apart everything that the president was doing. You would not see them criticizing everything the president said. You would not see them asking questions in the briefing room, constantly trying to assign blame to the president. You would not see them making up fake news, or reporting statements out of context, or trying to frighten the public. You would not see them looking backward in the middle of a crisis and asking what the president could have done to stop it.”

    “You would have seen [news media] rallying the public around the Democratic president. You would have seen them calling for patriotism. You would have seen them highlighting survivors. You would have seen them interviewing healthcare workers, and truckers, and grocers, and farmers. You would have seen them lamenting the fact that their wonderful Democratic president — whoever it would be, Obama or someone else — had to have their legacy challenged, had to be faced with such a crisis when they were doing so well up until now.”

    “And you would have seen them calling the country to unite under the flag and move forward. We would have seen the media pushing for national unity around the president, even in an election year and, perhaps for a Democratic president, especially in an election year.”

    “Joe Biden did not offer his support to the president after he addressed the nation from the Oval Office. Neither did Bernie Sanders. Nancy Pelosi made a speech televised nationwide in which she did not even mention the president.”

    “For weeks, none of the Democratic leaders would even acknowledge that [Donald Trump] was leading the country in the middle of a crisis. The media stoked that, and the media pushed the idea — deliberately — that the president was not to be trusted and that the highest duty was either to remove him from office somehow or, effectively, to put somebody else in charge. In fact, they’re still pushing that idea.”

      “As former CBS News reporter Bernie Goldberg correctly described in his book on the 2008 election, the press had a “slobbering love affair” with Obama, one that never stopped.

      For eight years, scandals weren’t pursued, they were brushed under the rug. The press didn’t hold Obama accountable for the multitude of disasters at home and abroad, they made excuses for them. If Obama made a claim, the press attacked anyone who dared question him. Even when Obama flagrantly abused the press, they said nothing.

      It was as though the Washington press corps went into hibernation for eight years, comforted by the belief that the country was in the very best of hands under Obama and didn’t need their truth-to-power telling. The only time they ever seemed to awaken from their slumbers was to attack Republicans who dared stand in Obama’s way.

      Heck, minutes after Obama told reporters not to be sycophants, they showered him with compliments and softball questions. A sampling:

      “Well, thank you, Mr. President. It has been an honor.”

      “Were you able to use that opportunity to convince (Trump) to take a fresh look at some of the important ideas that you will leave this office with?”

      🤮🤮🤮
