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 😛

Rickie Traeger: Oak Island & Kings Of Pain, Record Low Temp For Today




Hopefully everyone had a safe and wonderful Tuesday!

I just finished watching Curse of Oak Island and then afterwards a new show about the pain scale of bites. Curse Of Oak Island was pretty interesting. Kinda cool they found some items that may or may not have been there to sharpen tools from centuries ago and also an item they believed to be a tool to carve writings into stone. Looking at it, I was thinking to myself those items have some history to them. Who held them and used them? Just imagine what those tools have saw over the years. I think it is cool at the technology that we have these days, compared to just even 30 years ago.  I do hope that they find something one day of significance importance. Many theories are what may or may not be buried there.  I sat and thought about this awhile back ago and my opinion I feel that the treasure is of historical value such as something due to the religion aspect of it. And some treasure of gold.  They have found paper and book bindings.

If I had the chance to search Oak Island. I would dig a tunnel for someone to go down in.  I would go down about 100 feet, then start heading out. But before I did that, I would make sure I found the flood tunnels in the cove first and block that off. I wouldn’t want to go down in a tunnel, and the flood tunnels happen, lol.  Soooo.  You would have to go by priorities.  First and foremost you know there are flood tunnels. So make the #1 priority to locate those in the area of the last known location. After locating one, which they have done. Then focus on following that, and finding the point where all meet. Then close that off. I would actually probably reinforce it several times, to be safe it is for sure closed, lol.  Then the 2nd priority would be to follow the tunnel. Yes, it is easy to sit here and type this out and say what I would do. But I don’t understand why they aren’t doing this?  They are bouncing from one thing to another. Yes, granted it is turning up several cool things. But why not just go for the treasure…   You found the flood tunnel, focus on that first and then do the other stuff later on, IF needed.

After that came a new show, Kings of Pain.  They 2 guys purposely get bit by various animals and then rate the pain scale.  This show, they used a tarantula and 2 wasps.  Now, I will say they used the goliath bird eater when doing the test. The biggest species of the tarantula. So kudos to them.  i have been bitten by tarantulas over the years, but never a bird eater.  So my opinion is based on my own experience with my own tarantula bites, and not with the bird eater.  All the times I have been bitten by my tarantulas, have been when i tried to handle them, move them or cleaned the cages. basically they wouldn’t bite me, until I put myself into their territory and they felt threatened.  They usually try to flee at first. When they don’t flee, they stand their ground. They will first give you an indication of 2 things. The hairs go straight up, which means it is about to spray you with its hairs. And the other it will raise its 2 front legs. When it raises its 2 front legs, they will show their fangs. If you see either of these, it is about to protect itself. So be careful. Most of mine shoot their hairs first, before the actual bite.  When they shoot their hairs at you, it is quick and very itchy for awhile.  Yup, you will be itching for awhile. Now if they bite, they have already raised their 2 front legs, so you are already well aware of it ready to protect itself. So if you have not retreated your hand, you will probably be bitten. When it bites, it is quick. And they dig their fangs into you and keep burrowing their fangs into you. Most of mine have been dry bites. Basically a warning bite, with no venom. But I have had them put their venom in me.  I think the bite itself is probably the worst of the experience. Because you watch the tarantula bite you, and see the big fangs digging into your skin as it bites. If you try to pull back, it will dig their fangs into you deeper. So as bad as it sounds, just suck it up and let it bite ya and pull away when it retracts its fangs.  The venom is mainly like a bee sting. Swelling, itching, red spot, etc…   You won’t die, unless you are allergic to bees. Then there is a possibility of dying, but doubtful.

Today we hit a record low of 3 degrees. Actually still dropping, so it might be even lower before it hits midnight. But last I looked and heard, it was at 3 degrees.

Rickie Traeger: Happy Walking Dead Day!




Hope everyone had a good Sunday! Happy Walking Dead Day!

I wanted to wait until after I watched the Walking Dead before I blogged tonight.

Hard to believe only 3 episodes left of the Walking Dead, well I think 2 now 🙁

It be interesting to see how Daryl reacts to Carol using him.

And to see what Negan is up to.  The show is making it look like he is wanting to become friends with the whispers.  My opinion, I think he is trying to join them to be a spy.  I think he has grown on everyone and came to the good side now.  After he killed that savior last week. And how he grew on Carl and others. I personally feel that he is trying to join the whispers to help the good side. I guess time will tell, lol.  I like Carol’s idea though. Get rid of the horde, you get rid of the leverage of the whispers. I used to hate Negan, but now I kinda like him. And like I said, I think him trying to join the whispers, are to take vengeance for what the whispers have done.
