Rickie Traeger:




Happy Taco Tuesday! 

I had Taco Bell for dinner tonight. So Happy Taco Tuesday!

Weather has been pretty wet today. And supposed to be windy as heck tomm.

I am wanting to buy Adobe Lightroom, without the subscription. I want to do the one time fee.

Anyone know where I can but Lightroom for the one time fee, or an older version I can do that with?

Or a good alternative software that rivals Lightroom?  I had lightroom back in the day.

It is a badazz photography software. And I want to use it again.

I am going to pop off here. I wanted to shout out to everyone and say hi and wish everyone a safe and happy taco tuesday!

 








Rickie Traeger:




Happy Walking Dead Day! 

So, I am kinda torn on the mid season finale.   I was expecting some more out of it.

I am going to be simple and short on this blog, because I don’t want to spoil it too much for those who have not yet saw it.

But a simple google search or a trip to twitter, you will see what happened, lol.

So, they found the horde!  But, I am still left with questions…

Where did Alpha run off too? Did she purposely lead them there?  Was that horde there underground all along, or did they recently move them there? What is Darryl thinking about Carol?  What was Gabriel thinking? Don’t get me wrong, I like what he did. But they left it hanging as to why…   I can see Eugene and Rossita hooking up later on.  The man stealing the boat, can he be trusted?  Machione is heading off to a strange island with this man.  Does she really thing he is going to give him the weapons they want?

I mean as you can see there are a lot of questions that are left unanswered.

It ended with the group falling into a cave, and are trapped with the horde.  There was not a lot of action tonight. I was expecting a lot of fast paced action.

And not one thing on Neegan…

Alright, I prob spoiled it for many, lol.  I won’t say no more.

I was expecting a lot more this episode, and it feels like I fell down their cave with them, in disappointment. And that is saying a lot, considering I am a long term and loyal fan since day one.  I rarely ever say anything bad about the show, because I am biased because I love the show. But tonight’s show for being a mid season finale, left a lot of questions and feeling down in a cave.








Rickie Traeger: Happy Friday, Scanner Questions…




It is Friday!!!

Sorry I did not blog yesterday. I was not feeling the best at all. So I didn’t blog.

I checked into the ARES/SKYWARN and SATURN nets last night.

I been looking for a scanner with good RX for the airband. I been trying to research online as to which one has the best audio on the airbands.  I see a few that I like, but I don’t know if I will get one.  I also came across the SDS 200 scanner while researching online. Looks like a sweet scanner, but………. there appears to be many issues with it. And it is $700!   I like to keep up to date on scanners, because thats what I enjoy.  I won’t be buying any anytime soon.  Pointless, cuz the police encryption.  Why spend a lot of money for stuff you can’t listen too…   But I do want to keep up to date on scanners, so if anyone has a question I can can help them.  Man the SDS 200 looks sweet, but man so many issues with it, and a price tag of $700….SMH

I need to research which coax has the least db loss at 200 feet, for the HF bands.  Someone said the 213, I am leaning towards the lmr-400.  I have to research some online to compare the 2 to see which one is better.

Anyone have any experience with multicouplers?  If so, I would love to hear your feedback on them.

 

 








Rickie Traeger: Terror In The Skies: Thunderbirds, Mothman, Etc…




I am watching a show on prime called “Terror In The Skies”

It is a pretty darn good movie about thunderbirds, mothman, etc…   If you do not know, Illinois is like the top state that has the most thunderbird sightings, along with other strange and mysterious things in our skies.

A simple online search you will see what I am talking about.   It is crazy!

I am going to pop off here so I can finish watching this really good movie.

I will finish this up later on today 🙂








Rickie Traeger: Happy Wet Tuesday Blog




I hope everyone is staying dry. It is a wet Tuesday out there.

I been wanting to re-watch Project Blue Book, but they are making you pay for it online to watch it, grrrr.

I been playing with the sdr dongle, listening to the local radio on it.  The antenna that came with it, sucks. So I am going to buy an antenna adapter for it. I want to be able to listen to the aircraft with it.

Not to much to add to todays blog, other than I am hoping to work on some websites later tonight.

Everyone please be safe.








Rickie Traeger: Happy 18th Golden Birthday




Happy 18th Golden Birthday!   

Hard to believe 18 years ago my baby girl was born.  These 18 years have flown by sooooo fast!  You are now an official adult, but you will always be my baby girl.  I am so proud of you.  You are doing good in school, making positive choices, and are going to be an amazing adult.  It is hard for me to say or think of you as an adult. Because you are my baby girl. You have grown up so fast. We are all so proud of you. Hope you have a wonderful 18th golden birthday.  We love you!

 








Rickie Traeger: Happy Walking Dead Day




Happy Walking Dead Day! 

 

Holy cow, what an episode of Walking Dead!

I kinda wonder how Carol and Daryl’s relationship is going to be now???

Liddy goes back to the Whispers.  Daryl is going to be super mad…

The ending of tonights episode kinda explained his flashbacks.  And explains some…

Spoiler Alert: Man that sucks he died!!!

So now we know the whispers have a spy in a high position in their community now.

So I am asking myself, how is this going to play out? As you know the Walking Dead writers kill people off all the time and do not stick to the comics.

One of the cool things I like about the show, but at the same time. WTF killing off main characters, grrrrrrrrrrr

I am goingto watch the replay in a few minutes, I love this show 😛
