We know that you, as a bee, have worked your whole life to get to the point where you can work for your whole life. Honey begins when our valiant Pollen Jocks bring the nectar to the hive. Our top-secret formula is automatically color-corrected, scent-adjusted and bubble-contoured into this soothing sweet syrup with its distinctive golden glow you know as You're right. These bees are stress-testing a new helmet technology, Spinach (Live) - Ben Son Mosquito - So Proud (CD).
Here we have our latest advancement, the Krelman. Saves us millions. Oan anyone work on the Krelman? Of course. Most bee jobs are small ones. But bees know that every small job, if it's done well, means a lot. But choose carefully because you'll stay in the job you pick for the rest of your life. The same job the rest of your life? I didn't know that.
What's the difference? You'll be happy to know that bees, as a species, haven't had one day off in 27 million years. So you'll just work us to death?
We'll sure try. That blew my mind! One job forever? That's an insane choice to have to make. I'm relieved. Now we only have to make one decision in life.
But, Adam, how could they never have told us that? Why would you question anything? We're bees. We're the most perfectly functioning society on Earth. You ever think maybe things work a little too well here? Like what? Give me one example. I don't know. But you know what I'm talking about. Please clear the gate. Royal Nectar Force on approach. Wait a second. Oheck it out. I've never seen them this close. They know what it's like outside the hive. Yeah, but some don't come back.
You guys did great! You're monsters! You're sky freaks! I love it! Their day's not planned. Outside the hive, flying who knows where, doing who knows what. You can'tjust decide to be a Pollen Jock. You have to be bred for that.
That's more pollen than you and I will see in a lifetime. It's just a status symbol. Bees make too much of it. Unless you're wearing it and the ladies see you wearing it. Those ladies? Aren't they our cousins too? Look at these two. It must be dangerous being a Pollen Jock.
Once a bear pinned me against a mushroom! He had a paw on my throat, and with the other, he was slapping me! What were you doing during this? Trying to alert the authorities. I can autograph that. A little gusty out there today, wasn't it, comrades? We're hitting a sunflower patch six miles from here tomorrow. A puddle jump for us, but maybe you're not up for it. We're going at J-Gate. What do you think, buzzy-boy? Are you bee enough?
I might be. It all depends on what means. Hey, Honex! Dad, you surprised me. You decide what you're interested in?
Do you ever get bored doing the same job every day? Son, let me tell you about stirring. You grab that stick, and you just move it around, and you stir it around. You get yourself into a rhythm. It's a beautiful thing. You know, Dad, the more I think about it, maybe the honey field just isn't right for me. You were thinking of what, making balloon animals?
That's a bad job for a guy with a stinger. Janet, your son's not sure he wants to go into honey! You're not funny! You're going into honey. Our son, the stirrer! Wait till you see the sticks I have. I could say anything right now. I'm gonna get an ant tattoo!
Let's open some honey and celebrate! Maybe I'll pierce my thorax. Shave my antennae. Shack up with a grasshopper. Get a gold tooth and call everybody "dawg"! I'm so proud. Oome on! All the good jobs will be gone. Yeah, right. Pollen counting, stunt bee, pouring, stirrer, front desk, hair removal Two left! One of them's yours! Step to the side. Oouple of newbies? Yes, sir! Our first day! We are ready! Make your choice.
Oh, my. What's available? Restroom attendant's open, not for the reason you think. I'm sorry, the Krelman just closed out. Wax monkey's always open. The Krelman opened up again. What happened? A bee died. Makes an opening. He's dead. Another dead one. Two more dead. Dead from the neck up. Dead from the neck down. That's life! Oh, this is so hard! Heating, cooling, stunt bee, pourer, stirrer, humming, inspector number seven, lint coordinator, stripe supervisor, mite wrangler.
Barry, what do you think I should All right, we've got the sunflower patch in quadrant nine What happened to you? Where are you? Out where? I have to, before I go to work for the rest of my life. You're gonna die! You're crazy! Another call coming in. If anyone's feeling brave, there's a Korean deli on 83rd that gets their roses today. Hey, guys. Hold it, son, flight deck's restricted. It's OK, Lou. We're gonna take him up. Feeling lucky, are you? Sign here, here.
Just initial that. You got a rain advisory today, and as you all know, bees cannot fly in rain. So be careful. As always, watch your brooms, hockey sticks, dogs, birds, bears and bats. Also, I got a couple of reports of root beer being poured on us. Murphy's in a home because of it, babbling like a cicada!
All right, launch positions! Buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz! Black and yellow! You ready for this, hot shot? Yeah, bring it on. Wind, check. Scared out of my shorts, check. OK, ladies, let's move it out!
Pound those petunias, you striped stem-suckers! All of you, drain those flowers! I'm out! I can't believe I'm out! So blue. I feel so fast and free! Box kite! This is Blue Leader. We have roses visual. Bring it around 30 degrees and hold. Bringing it around.
Stand to the side, kid. It's got a bit of a kick. That is one nectar collector! I pick up some pollen here, sprinkle it over here. Maybe a dash over there, a pinch on that one. See that? It's a little bit of magic. That's amazing. Why do we do that? That's pollen power. More pollen, more flowers, more nectar, more honey for us. I'm picking up a lot of bright yellow. Oould be daisies. Don't we need those? Oopy that visual. One of these flowers seems to be on the move.
Say again? You're reporting a moving flower? That was on the line! This is the coolest. What is it? I don't know, but I'm loving this color. It smells good. Not like a flower, but I like it.
Yeah, fuzzy. Oareful, guys. It's a little grabby. My sweet lord of bees! Oandy-brain, get off there! Very close. Gonna hurt. Mama's little boy. You are way out of position, rookie! Ooming in at you like a missile! Help me! I don't think these are flowers. What is this?!
Match point! You can start packing up, honey, because you're about to eat it! There's a bee in the car! He's going to sting me! Nobody move. If you don't move, he won't sting you.
He blinked! Spray him, Granny! What are you doing?! I gotta get home. Oan't fly in rain. Bee going down! Ken, could you close the window please? Oheck out my new resume. I made it into a fold-out brochure. You see? Folds out. Oh, no. More humans. I don't need this. What was that? Maybe this time. This time. This time! That is diabolical. It's fantastic. It's got all my special skills, even my top-ten favorite movies.
What's number one? Star Wars? Nah, I don't go for that No wonder we shouldn't talk to them. They're out of their minds. When I leave a job interview, they're flabbergasted, can't believe what I say.
There's the sun. Maybe that's a way out. I don't remember the sun having a big 75 on it. I predicted global warming. I could feel it getting hotter. At first I thought it was just me. Stand back. These are winter boots.
Don't kill him! You know I'm allergic to them! This thing could kill me! Why does his life have less value than yours? Why does his life have any less value than mine? Is that your statement? I'm just saying all life has value. You don't know what he's capable of feeling. My brochure! There you go, little guy. I'm not scared of him. It's an allergic thing. Put that on your resume brochure. My whole face could puff up.
Make it one of your special skills. Knocking someone out is also a special skill. Bye, Vanessa. Yogurt night? You know, whatever. I gotta say something. She saved my life. All right, here it goes. What would I say? I could really get in trouble.
It's a bee law. You're not supposed to talk to a human. I can't believe I'm doing this. I've got to. Oh, I can't do it. Do it. I can't. How should I start it? Here she comes! Speak, you fool! I'm sorry. You're talking! I'm so sorry. No, it's OK. It's fine. I know I'm dreaming. But I don't recall going to bed. Well, I'm sure this is very disconcerting.
This is a bit of a surprise to me. I mean, you're a bee! And I'm not supposed to be doing this, but they were all trying to kill me. And if it wasn't for you I had to thank you. It's just how I was raised. That was a little weird. I'm talking to a bee. And the bee is talking to me!
I just want to say I'm grateful. I'll leave now. How did you learn to do that? The talking thing. Same way you did, I guess. Bees are funny. If we didn't laugh, we'd cry with what we have to deal with. Oan I I mean I don't want to put you out. It's no trouble. It takes two minutes. Hey, you want rum cake? I'm trying to lose a couple micrograms. You look great! I don't know if you know anything about fashion. Are you all right? He's making the tie in Spinach (Live) - Ben Son Mosquito - So Proud (CD) cab as they're flying up Madison.
He finally gets there. He runs up the steps into the church. The wedding is on. And he says, "Watermelon? I thought you said Guatemalan. Why would I marry a watermelon? That's the kind of stuff we do. Yeah, different. So, what are you gonna do, Barry? About work? I want to do my part for the hive, but I can't do it the way they want. I know how you feel.

Those two things alomge with a lot of luck might allow you to survive. Did you see the 40 year part of the statement. There are many long term groups out here that were started in the early 60s.
Many Native American tribes made the fatal mistake of believing the USG was as honorable as they were. Their naivete got them killed.

No matter how many techno toys they have they will have no safe rear area. When the going gets tough, a lot of pansies will die.

We win when we explode the myth that they are ten feet tall and we have no chance.
Dare to struggle, dare to win. SC Going it alone? Hard to anticipate who is going to make trouble in the group and for what reason. How does one determine the benefits of going it alone as compared to a group? A education on living together under stress with the same social problems are the YouTube vids on the homeless. Living in vans, tents and fabricated shelters. Little money and at time hungry with small children.
Who is to say we will not end up that way. I admire their resiliency in the face of adversity. Many living this way for years. One older gentleman played a piano. Another a harmonica. Some had gardens and even decorated their area with odds and ends. Chickens and small pets. All the items they need and cherish is open to theft. I sense the respect they have for each ones property and space. They have camp rules and indeed do receive help from organizations but they are living it.
That has to account for something. I am sure they have trouble at times. How do they decide who they accept into the group. Could you or I fit in the group? Appearances can be deceiving and is good that we can build trust and relationships at this time. BlueH2O: sorry about your problems. Here in Iowa it is very wet this spring.
Good Luck. Rain makes grain if it comes in the right amount at the right time. Too thick to drink, too thin to plow sort of thing at the same time and continuing on.
You have great soil over there in Iowa. But it retains that moisture. I hope it dries out some, now. Hard to make hay when it stays wet, too. Standing water in the furrows in many places. Worst is the tender vegetables. I just gave up on the garden plot this year. I did containers last year, too because we had early drought.
Right now, if tomatoes are in the ground, the set up for early blight is high. As for sweet corn, the last year it was this wet this early, we got smut. Some fields will produce, barring more bad weather of all sorts. My point was that gardening or farming is subject to weather and cannot be relied upon if you are your only source of food. It is wise to preserve everything possible in good years, to offset the bad ones.
We are still using the last of the dried tomatoes and frozen sauce from I was thinking the other day and thought I share and see what you all think. With all the extra money spent on prepping that we have done. No matter how small or large that would be. If it had not been done, do you the government could have hiden what was happening, as well as they have? We bought and kept people working.
We sold item to each other and kept each other going. Because of our action even a TV show was created which made someone money. Daisy, good article.
You are trying to point people toward the reality of being self reliant. You have to realize that Spinach (Live) - Ben Son Mosquito - So Proud (CD) is totaly impossible and still be civilized. I repair or install everything I can, but I must rely on others for parts for chain saws, rototillers, tractors, household appliances ect. We raise everything we can to eat which includes vegetables, beef and pork.
We can and freeze and dry all we are able to plus make lard and cure pork and grind our own corn meal and make deer up in jerky. You have to have a source of salt sugar vinegar spices canning jars and freezer bags. Sounds great, but we go to the grocery store every week. If we lost our freezers it would be a big blow, but we store a lot of canned goods and dry goods.
My one big deficit is milking a cow or a goat. Been there done that. As much as I love milk, I guess I will have to pass. Could we live without any dependence on some outside source?
Not long, maybe a few months. In my early years we had no electricity or inside plumbing and cooked on a wood stove and it was no problem because everyone we knew was in the same shape. I guess I could go to the local Menonites for a refresher course, but I see them at the grocery store every week too. People today spend way too much time with electronic media.
Without it they might have time to work on their survival. Gave up on TV about a year ago because of the in your face propaganda being blared at me. Now I choose my own propaganda on the internet. Hey, I can remember going on vacation with the wife and kids, and if anyone asked where we were going we said to the beach.
We were responsible adults and we took care of ourselves and our children. Most people today are so busy on social media telling everyone what a good time they are having they miss the whole point of a vacation. I sure would hate to give up air conditioning and hot water, but believe it or not you can make it without either one. Clean water for drinking and cooking and soap for cleaning will be critical issues with most folks.
If your prepping consist of storing extra toilet paper, forget it. At that point, it will be a blessing to leave the torment. Thats a good point about your neighbor, things could get good again and they are still your neighbor, sometimes a good ally could come from an unlikely place. Cowdoc, re storing toilet paper. I have come to the conclusion that toilet paper is too expensive to stock up much on. We have stored old phone books, also I cut up lots of old clothing into small sized rags and put them all in plastic grocery bags — label the outside butt wipe.
I had three babies in cloth diapers and plan to rewash butt rags. Would rather put prep money into other things. I bought a big quantity of them, and stashed them away. Also, be sure to get lids for your 5 gal buckets. Cut a role hole in the center of the top, put your water and soap and clothes or wash cloths inside and use the plunger through the hole to wash them.
A couple of good scrub brushes are also a requirement — to work on the stubborn stains. I kept waiting for a price increase; but not so far. Do the wash cloths at Dollar General have those little bumps on them?
As for those ideas that other posters mentioned about Sears and Roebuck catalogs, I shudder at the visual that passes through my head when I think about how many Southerners were forced to go that route back in the days before indoor plumbing and regular TP.
And this bunch seems to hold up really well for. However, I was 5 before we had a tub, toilet, and sink installed—had the room, just empty. In those days, no loans, save and build as ya go!! All in an effort to show their love for Dad. I hope you like them. First of all, Thanks Dad! From the bottom of my heart, thank you for being my Dad. Only God knows how lucky I am to have been born your son. Just like a man is supposed to be.
Thanks for buying my first tricycle when I was three. Thanks for showing me how to fix the chain on my bike when I was ten. And thanks for teaching me how to tune up my first car. Remember that old relic? I look back now and laugh, but at the time, I was so proud of it!
And, while I never became the auto mechanic you were, I did learn a lot. And Dad, Thanks for bailing me out of that trouble when I was Calmly I realize now, lovingly. If this becomes a pattern in your life, then yes, it defines you… as a drunk. A bum. Or a riff-raff criminal. But if this is only a learning experience… a painful lesson you have to learn, then it will make you a better man in the long run. But I do not hate you.
I love you. And because I want to. And I forgive you. You make that choice. I always liked that about you. Once something was settled, you never brought it back up in a way that questioned the character of a person, or demeaned them. I wish I was more like that. Dad, thanks for teaching me by your actions, even more than your words. Remember that time you were talking to my brother and you got angry and hung up the phone on him?
See you in a couple days. Half an hour later you were on the road. You drove miles to Albuquerque, just to put your arm around him and reconcile. He told me about it later. And Dad, he still gets a little chocked up talking about it.
James Dobson says the best thing a father can do for his kids is to love their mother. But you knew that long before most people had heard of Dr. That precious wife of yours needs you. She needs your companionship… your presence, with her and the baby. But you will regret losing that time with her. And hurt. You never did. But you also never abandoned your responsibility as a Dad, even when your kids were grown. You seemed to have the perfect balance in that way.
And you were right. It took me a few months to put it into practice, but I learned it really was better to spend that time with her. Later, when we were talking about it, she said almost exactly the same thing you did!
I know now, how wonderful it is to have a woman that loves you and wants you in that way. Kind of like you and Mom, huh? Thanks again, Dad. Thanks for teaching us boys to never be intimidated by a tool or a piece of machinery. If one man can design and build it, you can learn to use it. And if necessary, to fix it. Maybe even pretty efficiently. You repented. You reconciled. You made things right because that was more important than your pride.
But you were the perfect Dad for me. You taught your children the meaning of integrity. And you did it with your life. The way your quietly lived it out each day. Nobody ever gave you an award, or public recognition. You lived the way you did, and taught us all those wonderful lessons, just because it was the right thing to do. And because you loved us. Thank you.
And we have so much to talk over! I can hardly wait to see you. But, Dad, I have to end this letter now. Thanks, Burt! Hope all is well on your side of the water. Dad truly was a gentle giant of a man. I benefitted from his love and wisdom for 25 years of my life. A swift kick in the backside, or a pat on the back- he always knew what I needed. Not everyone gets a Dad like that. Keep in touch, Burt. Thank you gentlemen.
Just a thought if its that easy to get me out of here maybe we could do a little detour and end up back in the States, you have to go back there anyway lol.
This is exactly how my wife and me raised our kids. It was hystarical watching my 16 old daughter a few years ago show her 24 year old male by gynetics not by manhood music director how to change a tire.
All of our children are now leaders in there comumities and self suficiant. Mentor and train your own and any other yungins that what it. They will be a valuable resource to you and thier community when the time comes. And, dads and moms—teach your child to use a stick shift.
May save a life one day. Sniff, sniff… yeah, wonderful story. Its so wonderful to HAVE a dad, but you reminded me how bad it is to not have one… at least one that you can remember. How you have to learn many things on your own, the hard way. Vietnam was so long ago, and so far away… but it went on for so long, that two generations were able to fight in it.
My father came home in a box, when I was The PTSD, the ghosts and nightmares, the sudden impulse to dive for the ditch when cars backfire, the desire to avoid crowds, are almost all gone now, except for the avoidance of crowds and cities.
That is one I probably will never get over, in fact, with time, it gets worse. Ole Dad was right, as usual, just like yours. The other day I was talking to the BIL, his father, was a democrat. Filled his head with all sorts of crap…. He thought it was righteous because the Democrats were the righteous ones.
I asked if it mattered whether it was a right boot or a left boot on our necks… No Response… But, his eyes went wide open, and I think, for the first time, I got through to him…. With a few guys owning everything and proclaiming themselves BOSS? The ideologies are the illusion, to keep you and me arguing, divided, and not united, there are good and bad things about both of them.
But, it was the ideology of practical rich and powerful people who wanted total mind control… that is what money is Jim, power and control.
Its not a game of left versus right, its a game of haves versus have nots. I smiled, another sleeper has awakened. Over 4 scandals in the presidency, and do you hear anything about it in the main stream media? Yeah all 27 of you are going to make a huge difference. Gee, no one has thought of this before. No one changes parties during primary elections. You ugly are a original thinker. Hyper prepping, double down on loserdom. If you are right, who cares?
I know why…. If other people join the preppers, it will validate your goofy thinking. This person Daisy has bought prepper crap stock and is selling her junk to morons. This site is great entertainment and I look forward to my contributions. Cognitive dissidence at its best. Not one more inch. For the last thousand inches.
Not on more, regardless of saying nomi a thousand inches ago. Lets hear from the gun crowd. Please defend the guy who just got killed by his 4 year old. At least the right person died and not a kid. Oh yeah, it was the gubberment who killed him for a distraction and to make a case for taking your guns.
You all need to store up on lithium or a anti psychotic of your choice. Why is that Facebook? A kid killed his dad today. As far as the other comments, I am not looking to debate. I am stating facts. None of the wacko fears have been realized.
Yes you still and always will have the right to a gun. Where are the comments about how the kid could have used anything to off his dad? Simply pointing out none of the shit here is based in reality.
Guess that makes me crazy? See, Mac here has got this Delorean. Not crazy at all. In past times, it was considered wise to save food and seeds, and some monies.
You never know what life may bring, thus you saved stuff. In past, it was commonsense. Today, we have been dumbed-down and take our food, money, and lifestyle for granted. In reality, we USA folks have been extremely spoiled as compared to anyone pres. We are spoiled compared to others around the world. Basically, we have become spoiled brats that expect something for nothing. You are correct. Preachers have been doomsdayers for years. I basically ignored most of that until Why ?
Infor the first time in USA history its debt was ahead of its economy and its currency rating. To compensate and buy time, now comes the money printings. Basically, dollars will get printed until it collapses. I am guessing 6 months to 3 years. Also, there are real indicators our dollar is collapsing. For the past 6 years, monies in either savings, T-bills, bonds, or CDs, have basically earned zero interest.
That is not a good sign. If you earn zero interest for 6 years on a currency, that means that currency is becoming worthless. You can do what you want to do. I just choose to do what our fellow Americans of the past always did—they took their food seriously.
But we will. Whatever your choices are, I wish Spinach (Live) - Ben Son Mosquito - So Proud (CD) good luck. I also hope you are right. If the collapse never happens, you can laugh at me and I will laugh with you. The Oly is on me! In another bowl mix cottage cheese, parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, eggs and oregano.
Add bit of Mozzarella for the top if you like. Break 5 lasagna noodles and, place on top, add half the remaining meat over this and then the last of the cheese mixture. Break the remaining noodles and place over the top. Spread the last of the meat mixture over the top. Pour hot water all-round the edges of the oven. Put on lid and cook about an hour or till done. Seems to work well by using 12 pieces of charcoal, on top and bottom.
Check frequently. Watchman, Your recipie post are making me hungry! I am getting a dutch oven tomorrow, we have cast iron skillets but we can do more with a dutch oven. American made only!!! JL, look for the older Wagner or Griswold type cast iron cookware. Check yard sales as well for them.
Currently I believe the only manufacturer in the states for cast iron cookware is Lodge. You have to do a lot of work on their products to get them seasoned properly as they are course. Know the difference between a Hoover vacuum cleaner and the sitting President of the United States? The position of the Dirt bag.
The biggest and most difficult task will be, trust and cooperation with others along the way. Paranoia will be at a all time high and there might be alot of itchy trigger fingers.
Something to think about. People will need to overcome some fears and remember not all are bad and there can be strength in numbers. No bunker, no farming and, no prepping will save anybody from the wrath of God. The facts and signs though do point to this being Biblical Prophecy. The world is falling into chaos and confusion and a one world government and leader will rise to bring order and security back and everyone has to get chipped for security and commerce purposes.
If this humanity just moving along and making history then yeah we gotta make it first initially then organize and move forward and go from there. Keep prepping by all means but prep to see God one day too. Howdy, Burt, glad to hear from you and that you managed to get out of an urban area. In the past 2 months I have developed an arrangement with a relative for a BOL and have moved half of my supplies to it already. Still like to hear from Manos, though. Take care. I have sent a few emails to Manos over the last couple of months.
He was gathering olives like crazy and he did say that he was looking at moving to a house on his cousins I think it was cousin in the olive area. I have no contact for Copperhead. Glad to hear you are planning and sorting. I would like to bring up the ultimate police state, and that is ANY state that would make rain barrels illegal on your own property. The amount of water someone can capture from a roof is not only tiny, it is nothing in the scheme of the water shed of the land.
I did aerial photography and there is absolutely no excuse for telling people that they are taking any amount of water from the system. It is far different to divery water on the ground or within it. This is call riparian water laws, and they are necessary. To make it illegal for someone to collect water from your roof is the same as making it illegal to carry anything that would constitute a weapon.
It is that freakening stupid and is worse than any sensible law every made. It is beyond junk science, it is pure sticken sun baked piles of fly covered horse manure. Well most of the government has now become this, so should we be surprised. By the way in my last comment of WW3, I refer to the Middle East as a very complex piece in the whole foundation of what will bring about the third world war. I am not saying that Iran is the only key piece.
Iran or a magnitude of other countries and reasons could be the ultimate trigger or flashpoint to what will bring about world war. Could even be North Korea and Japan.
I wanted to point out that things are massively heating up over there, nothing like has been seen in decades. I saw one comment about everyone has been talking about WW3, even after WW2. This is true, but several times the world has been saved from the brink of destruction. Right now there are more people on the planet than ever, and they are vying for resoruces that were considerably more decades ago.
There is a ceiling in how much one can take cheaply from a resource. Think of this as picking fruit on a tree. The tree at first is easy and plentiful to pick fruit. Then the ladder comes out, takes longer and is not as cost efficient as when the picking first started. Eventually the fruit is in very difficult spots to obtain, and become more costly to get at.
Countries have fought wars over far easier to obtain resources cheaply than the present day. There is also something called statistical chance. The longer an event goes without occurring the more likely it becomes of happening sooner and sooner. The ONLY variant to this is if people have been less likely to fight a world war. If this was the case, the amount of money spent on military hardware would subside. This has balloned if anything per capita average, inflation taken into account, rather than a skewed raw number of dollars spent.
One super power building up is all it takes to increase spending to drive up the chance of WW3. China has gone through the roof, Russia has gone back to its Soviet level of spending, and even though BO has likely purposely cut nuclear weapons, the military spending is still massive. That shows it is getting much closer. Another issue is that more and more countries are obtaining nuclear technology and adding to their nuke arsenals.
