Rickie Traeger: Tuesday, April 21 blog




Good morning everybody.

I reinstalled the Dragon software, so bear with me if there are any grammar errors.

I want to sit there and say thank you to everyone who sent their prayers and positive vibes to my grandma. She is out of the hospital and doing well. I can’t sit there and say thank you enough for everyone who sent their prayers and positive vibes.

My FT – 450 D has an issue. When I go to turn the frequency dial, the frequency skips around or does not move at all when I twist the dial. The dial twist fine, so I’m confident that it is an electronic issue. A few people told me to open it up and see if the screws are loose. So I think after I get done writing this I will now open it up and see. Wish me luck!

Speaking of HF, band conditions have been all over the place lately. At times it’s almost all quieting an earlier today it was S9 plus. I haven’t made any contacts on HF in a while. I was trying to over the weekend but I didn’t have any luck. So hopefully band conditions improve and I can sit there and talk and HF.

Again I apologize for any grammar or typo errors. I just reinstalled the Dragon software and is trying to get used to my voice for the accuracy. I can clearly see that it is doing pretty good overall but there are some errors. I would go back and correct them but I will leave them as is. I know a few people out there are grammar Nazis so I will keep it up just for them, LOL.

Going tto pop off here I just wanted to make a quick blog and say thank you to everybody

 








Rickie Traeger: We All Take Life For Granted…




First and foremost, my condolences to the family and friends of the victims in the double fatal accident a bit ago in Rockford. 

Please keep the family and friends and 1st responders in your thoughts and prayers.

There was a rollover accident in the 2100 block of 16th st a little bit ago.

2 people passed away and a 3rd victim was transported to a local ER.

I always hate working fatal scenes.   I can tell you every fatal scene I have ever worked over the years.

They are always heartbreaking to work.

We all go about our lives every day and do not realize or grasp the concept of how precious life really is, until it is too late.

Each and every time I work a fatal scene, it is sad. But it also reminds me of how lucky we are to be alive and to have those we love around us.

Also at the same time, I realize that some family is about to have the worst day in their life 🙁

I know doing what I do (Journalist) I have worked many fatals over the years.

And I can tell you I always dread working fatal scenes.  By far the most heartbreaking scenes to work.

This scene was a double fatal, possible triple. 2 Confirmed fatals.

Words cannot describe working a fatal scene.  My heart goes out to all those that are involved.

It is a grim reminder that we all take life for granted. The most cherished thing, and we don’t realize just how quick it can be gone.

Please take a second and hug those that you love, and tell them you love them.

And to keep all those involved in this horrific scene, in your thoughts and prayers
