Rickie Traeger Blog: President Trump Sending Us Back To The Moon, Trailer Park Boys, Tattoo, Vacation, Etc….





I just straight up binged watched The Trailer Park Boys, LOL.   Oh man I love that show.   I won’t say much because I don’t want to spoil it for others. But if you have not watched The Trailer Park Boys, yet. You are missing out!

We finally got snow that stuck around for awhile now.  I was going to try building a snowman, but the snow is not packing. Guess we will have to wait until another snowfall to do it.  The temps really dropped. Talk about cold, brrrr.  Yes, I can hear you know saying we live in the Midwest and we are supposed to be used to it.  You may be used to it, but I am not. I like my warm weather 🙂

Awhile back ago, I got a tattoo. Yes, I have many. But the one on my right arm is not finished. The guy who was supposed to finish it, never did.  So now I am going to go on the hunt to see if someone will finish it.  If you know of a good tattoo artist, let me know.   I like BEAR, but I have no idea where he is these days.  If you know someone who is a tattoo artist, that does sleeves, let me know.

I been looking online for places to go for a vacation.  I so need one.  It be nice to get outta dodge for awhile and kick back and relax and not work all the time.  I didn’t sleep for awhile cuz I was working alot.  I ended up getting 4 hours in last night, so I am kinda good to go for awhile today.

Places I want to go to a vacation at. You might laugh at a few, but I am serious when I say these 😛    Roswell, the #1 place for UFO’s,  not real UFO’s just the history.  I think that be a badazz place to visit. Because I am into the paranormal and it be cool to check out.   I am almost finished reading Witness To Roswell.  An awesome and informative book!   The other place I want to go to is a warm beach.  OMG what I would give right now to be on a warm beach!!!

I am watching a thing about Voyager.  Pretty interesting to see what it has done and saw. So advanced for its age.  Speaking of, I love the NASA website.  Many cool photos and videos on there.  I like watching the NASA TV and the launches.

OH GREAT NEWS,  President Trump told NASA to go back to the moon!  It will be a few years, but man o man that is going to be an awesome day when that happens again!  They said 2022 it will happen, so its a few years away.  But heck, I am sooooooo looking forward to that day!   I am super excited he is focused on the space program again!

I am not to political on here, but I am liking President Trump a lot!  I think he has done a lot of great things since he was taken office. I think he does it his way and that is making America great again.  Yes, there is stuff I do not agree on, but realistically he is doing a lot of great things for us Americans. Especially with all the BS he goes through daily.  Our economy has bounced back, stocks rose, public relations have risen, etc…  He does it his way and that is straight forward and not the “normal rules”  And that is what America needed.

Some Rockford Scanner news: I want to personally tell everyone who sent in their snow photos and videos, Thank You!  I am going through them all here shortly and will have them posted later on today.  Many great photos!  Keep up the great work!

Also, Sad to see people out there robbing others! As you know I hate liars and thieves!  I hope one day they try that crap on me.  Hard working people earning there stuff, probably living paycheck to paycheck are robbed by low life scums trying to get something for free.  Yesterday someone knocked on a door, then beat and tied them up and robbed them on Charles st, then later on a good Samaritan gave someone a ride that ended up being a setup  for a robbery.  I do now wish ill on anyone, but I sure hope I work the story of good guy wins!

Supermoon

December 3rd 2017 Blog 

Today is Sunday December 3rd 2017 and guess what that means?!?  Yup, Supermoon!  Tonight is the supermoon.  I am excited.  Now if only the weather will hold off so we can all watch it! According to the weather man, it is supposed to be partly cloudy which is good!  Last night we missed the ISS sighting, but hey we can see the Supermoon tonight!  Well let’s keep our fingers crossed! LOL   I plan on taking photos of it.

Share your photos with me at RockfordScanner@Gmail.com

I will be posting your photos on Rockford Scanner!

Walking Dead is on tonight!  Super excited about that also.  Sad that there is only 2 episodes left before the mid-season finale.  But it looks like it is going to be a good episode.  As you know I watch that show religiously!  So I cannot wait to watch it tonight!


I am currently chilling to Music Choice ROCK music station.  It is nice to hear some new rock music.  I really am bummed that the WXRX plays the older rock. Don’t get me wrong, the older music is good and what I grew up on, but I want NEW rock music.  The WXRX 104.9 is definitely not like what it used to be, that is for sure. It sucks these days. It be much better if they went back to their roots and played NEW ROCK MUSIC!  I don’t get to listen to music much these days. But when I do it is my “getaway” and I want to listen to the new stuff and see what’s out there these days.


I retook a refresher course in storm chasing. Not like I needed it. But I always like to keep up to date on things.  Heck I been storm chasing and spotting for numerous years and the course was a breeze.  But the reason why I am bringing it up, is because many people out there want to become storm spotters.  And I wanted to share the info with you.

It is always best to become a spotter, before a chaser!
