Won’t be long now before Nascar, MLB are back on tv!

I like how you can watch full games online.

Is there any active sports right now besides NBA?

I havent watched NBA in years, but I might start watching the Bulls

Well my plans were to blog after watching Svengoolie. But that did not happen, lol.  I ended up falling asleep.  I got to see a friend of mine I haven’t saw in awhile yesterday, Travis.   It was good seeing him.  We grew up together and had many great times back in the day.  Definitely good seeing him and catching up.

I have been watching the Nascar Full Race Replays on Youtube. Getting back into the Nascar mode 🙂

Below you can watch the race I am currently watching as I type this, Talladega!

Not to much planned for today. Doing RS and some ham radio.  Am also going to do some online training courses and a webinar for some weather stuff. I know it, but I am one of those people that like to keep things fresh in my mind. I always look at it as, why do the one and done motto. Basically why would you take a course and study something just once. Because over time you lose knowledge. So I like to keep things fresh in my mind, by redoing the courses and webinars.  One of the key things to survival is knowing what the weather is about to do.

One of the things that got me into weather and motivated me:

I have learned many times over the years. MANY times that the local weathermen on TV are clueless to what is actually going on out in the field.  I have saw MANY funnel clouds and tornadoes in Winnebago County, that the weathermen down right refuse to believe happened, because the NWS or their radar says did not happen.

But yet, right in front of me there is a funnel or a tornado.  MANY times…

I have lost all trust in the local weather people, based on their actions towards me.  Going to call me names and call me a liar. When I am trying to help the community by reporting severe weather to them… SMH.

I might add there were photos and videos to prove the funnels and tornados.  And they still deny it…

So, long story short: That is why I enjoy doing weather spotting. Because I know for a fact that eyes on the ground in the field are 1,000 times better than a weatherman on tv going by their equipment…  based on my own experiences.

And I know many people who will say the same exact thing.

See it is one thing to deny severe weather reports. But to be a jerk to the person that is trying to help you. Well that was the last straw on my end.  That is when I went full force into learning weather, radar, forecasts, etc…  And even went and got my ham radio license.

So that is why it is very important to keep up to date and keep things fresh in your mind because your eyes and ears will always be better than any equipment made. If you are trained properly.

But that is why I retake the courses and webinars and other training over again, multiple times.

Kick back and watch some Nascar with me!

Rickie Traeger: Government has 180 days to DISCLOSE about “Advanced Aerial Threats”

  • Rickie

Yesterday I came across something very interesting. 

I will start by saying I heard rumors of President Trump might be doing some crazy stuff that no other presidents have done in the past.  And I will say this was a pleasant surprise.

It is a few days old, but I just found out about it.  Kinda shocked I didn’t learn about this earlier!

Recently, they passed a bill in reference to the Covid relief.

You can read it in full at ~ CLICK HERE TO READ THE BILL IN FULL

In this bill that was passed, it says the government has 180 days from the time it was passed, to DISCLOSE ABOUT "Advanced Aerial Threats"  AKA UFO's! 

Yup, that is right!  President Trump said the government has 180 days from the time that bill was passed, to disclose about UFO's! 

Regardless if you like or hate him, I think it is freaking awesome he did this! 

Now, let's be realistic though. Do you really think they will actually disclose about UFO's? 
My opinion: No.  

It would be awesome, if they did though!  I think it is time they do.  I think many have accepted the fact that there is a strong possibility that we are not alone in the universe.

So, time will tell if they actually disclose about UFO's.  I really hope they do. But the way the world has been in the last year or so, I highly doubt they will actually disclose about it. If they do, it will definitely be amazing!  

Again, regardless if you hate him or love him. My hats goes off to the President for trying to bring disclosure on UFO's!







Rickie Traeger: Nascar Mode 2021 :)

  • Rickie 




Well I missed out on January 2nd blog. I fell asleep and now it is after midnight, lol. 
So I guess, technically I missed the Jan. 2nd blog. But here it goes anyways. 

I am getting back into the Nascar mode.  I am watching the Daytona 500 from 2020 on youtube.
I am super glad and thankful that Nascar uploads their races to Youtube. Full race replays!  🙂   

Definitely has put me back into Nascar mode again!  

I was reading on their website that Michael Jordan is do-owner with Denny Hamlin and created a team for Bubba Wallace.  I thought that was pretty cool.  I dunno who I want to root for this year.  A lot of the drivers I used to root for, are no longer racing. So I am going for the whole Tony Stewart team 🙂 








Rickie Traeger: Happy New Year 2021

Good morning everyone!

Happy New Year 2021!

Hopefully everybody celebrated safely and had a lot of fun 🙂

As usual, there were many gunshots that were fired. They continued for several hours after midnight.  Sadly, 1 person may have lost their life. Details on that shooting at http://rockfordscanner.com/rockford-scanner-possible-fatal-shooting-victim-in-winnebago-county-still-developing

Tragic way to start of 2021 in Rockford.  🙁

Let’s focus on some positive news.  It is 2021 and a new year!  I am looking forward to hearing everyone’s new years resolutions. My new year resolution is to blog daily.  Yes, I know I have been slacking and many have gave me an earful, LOL.   But that is a good thing, because that shows me there are people who actually read my website 🙂   I want to take a second and just say THANK YOU for following my website. Much appreciated!

I am counting down the days until it is spring!  Yes, we have been spoiled for the most part for winter. So I can not complain too much, LOL.  But it is still winter!  Come on spring!  We are supposed to get 2-4 more inches later on today.  Hopefully Mother Nature changes her mind, LOL.

If we do get it, please use caution and be safe if you have to travel.

Happy 2021
