Rickie Traeger: March 3rd 2020 Blog

Good morning everyone, Happy Tuesday! 

You know what day it is?  Yup, Project Blue Book!

I am kicking back watching some X-Files and I am about to work on some Freedom of Information Act stuff for my site.

I been thinking about going on a vacation. I haven’t been on one for years and am definitely in need of one.

I just don’t know where I want to go.    I was checking out train tickets. I think it be cool to ride a train across country to watch the scenery.   It is good we live in the Midwest. Pretty much anywhere I wanna go is about all the same distances, lol.  I thought about renting a car for a week and just driving around.  But if I do that I dunno if i would be able to get the car back in a week lol.  You know what be cool, it is kinda on my bucket list. To go see Area 51.   Yes, I know there is not much to see. But to get my photo at the gate, that be cool.  Also, I think it be pretty awesome to be out in the desert and to look up at the night sky.  No city light pollution, just stars. I have been told you can see stars forever.   Another thing I would like to do is go on a cruise. I heard the same thing, it is so dark you can see tons of stars!  As you can see, I want to do a lot of things, lol.

I am popping off of here and I am going to watch some X-Files 🙂

Hope everyone has an awesome day!








Rickie Traeger: Project Blue Book




Well technically it is now morning. So good morning everyone! 

Man o Man, Project Blue Book had a heck of a twist to it!  All this time I thought Daniel was a good guy. And then when they went to the Robinson Report, Daniel turned on them and tried to discredit them.  So this whole time I thought Daniel was helping them, turns out he turned on them.  I mean seriously, WTF…  I don’t think I like him any longer, lol.

Also they did a Close Encounters of The Third Kind theme for this episode. I LOVED That!

I love that movie, so that was awesome they did that.

You know the other thing I thought I saw coming, then it did not happen. Well it didnt happen right away I should say, lol.  Is Susie killing that other spy. I thought she was going to kill him right away. Then they played it out some. S then I thought that she wasn’t going to. Then she shot him a few times in the back.  I wonder what is going to happen with her plot.  She never got popped for the murder of Mimi’s neighbor.

I can tell you one thing, I freaking love the show!








Rickie Traeger: Friday Night Blog




They are calling for a few inches of snow in the next 48 hours. 

Well I guess it is still winter, but man I wish Spring would get here soon. 

I been reading up on the Black Knight Satellite.  I have researched it in the past.  But I swear every topic I go back to read about I always seem to learn more. LOL.  That is an interesting story about the Black Knight.  It kinda shows how popular ham radio was back in the day as well.  Ham radio operators allegedly found a signal from it.  If you get time, Google about it. Pretty interesting read! 

I wonder how the Korn and Breaking Benjamins concert was last night?   I love both those bands! 🙂 

I want to give a shout out to Rick Peters for doing an amazing job with the Rockford MUFON chapter.  And I wish him the best on his retirement.  You did an amazing job Rick! 

I am going to go watch Project Blue Book in a sec. I missed it on Tuesday night. So it is time to catch up on Project Blue Book and Supernatural!

 








Rickie Traeger: Project Blue Book :) 




  Project Blue Book 🙂 

Oh how I love that tv show!    I think it is cool to see they started the season off with the Roswell episode. I think they did that because they know many people relate to the Roswell Incident.  So it captures the interest of many.  It was a pretty good episode.

There are already a few things that caught my attention. The relation ship with Susie and Quinn, the UFO investigator figuring out who Mimi is, and the whole Harding thing.  I liked how they at the end added the man who shot the alien as it tried to flee.  That is reported to actually be true. There were reports of 2 crash sites. And at the 2nd site, there were reports of aliens at that site. And reports of the military shooting one as it tried to flee.  As you know, nothing is confirmed, lol.  But there are reports of that actually happening.

Watching the show, you really have to have an open mind to things.  I for one have an open mind 🙂

You should too, check it out Tuesday nights at 9pm 🙂

 

 








Rickie Traeger: Project Blue Book, Hire A Photographer, Winter Weather




It is officially Tuesday now.   I am super excited!  Project Blue Book is coming back on tonight!  Heck yeah! 


I have to replace the bathroom fan later on today. I am so not looking forward to doing that. But I think it is going bad, so I need to replace it.  I watched some Youtube videos on how to replace them. They make it look easy.  Let me say one thing, the more a video makes something look easy, the harder it really is to do, LOL.

Our work speaks for itself. So you know you will be getting the best of the best photographers when you hire us 🙂

If you want to hire us to do your photos, shoot us an email at RockfordScanner@Gmail.com


I just looked at the weather forecast. I am kind of liking it.  It is not going to be super cold. But…….. There is several inches of snow possible.   I will definitely take the snow over really cold temps, anyday!   I actually enjoy the snow. I wish it could snow in the summer time, but that is impossible.   I am just happy to see the temps will be above 0 degrees!


Alright I am going to pop off here and play some Red Dead Redemption 2.

I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful Tuesday. Don’t forget Project Blue Book is on tonight!








Rickie Traeger: Black Friday……… Bring Back Z-Nation! Project Blue Book :)




I hope everyone is having a safe and wonderful weekend! 

So what was your thoughts on your Black Friday experience?

Mine:  Retailers should be ashamed of themselves!   I saw many places doing the following tactics. I been keeping my eyes on several items and planned on buying them for Black Friday.  So I know what the prices have been for some time now.

Well………  I waited until black Friday to get a “deal” on them.

The retailers RAISED THE PRICES UP A LOT on the items.

Then saying heres the Black Friday “deal”  and that “deal” was either AT or ABOVE the prices the items I have been watching, prices BEFORE Black Friday.

Example: Canon Powershot SX530  Normally goes for around $200-$230.  Walmart price before Black Friday was $245.   For Black Friday they said the retail price was $479, but the Black Friday “deal” was $250.  So much for that deal………  And a day after Black Friday it is $249.

But I saw this happening by several retailers on several items.  SMFH

I did see a few deals on some items, so to be fair I did see a few deals.  But it sure is nothing like it used to be awhile back ago.  When you really got the deals on alot of items, and you actually got a good deal on the items. Nothing like that these days.  When I worked in retail in the past, I learned some of their marketing tactics.  And one of them was to say you have a deal on this item. And make it appear there are several of them in stock. But they ONLY PUT 1 IN STOCK.  So they can draw you there to the store on that deal. And when you get there it has been since long gone because only 1 was in stock, and they can legally say they had that deal on the item, all while drawing you to their store.

I lost a lot of respect for retailers because of their marketing tactics. Reminds me alot like politicians. They lie to you, to get what benefits them…

Time to change themes here now, LOL.   I am super excited!  Project Blue Book is coming back on TV!  I am like really excited. I love that show.  Speaking of tv shows though, Walking Dead is now off until February. I kinda hate this mid season finale crap. But in another way, it kinda nice to draw the season out some through out the year.  I wish Z-Nation was back on tv!  I miss that show.  It did a lot of stuff walking dead wouldn’t of said or do. Bring back Z-Nation!

 








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.
