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: 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: 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.


If you know anyone who needs a photographer.  Contact me, Will and I have some openings now available.  We can do your photoshoot and events for you!

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: How Hard Is It For Some To Grasp A Simple Concept?




As many of you know I work things a 2 way street. 

The ball is always in your court, how you come at me is how I am going to respond back

You keep talking smack, I am going to keep making your stuff public. 

 

I guess you are too egoistic to even grasp the simple concept of a 2 way street?

 

Don’t bother me any, because when you talk smack not only do you make me famous, but you also look stupid and you do not help your cause. 

As they say, just saying…   

P.S. Yes, I know this don’t help me look any better.
But maybe if I am direct, some people might grasp a simple concept, lol.   

 

 








Rickie Traeger:




Happy Taco Tuesday! 

I had Taco Bell for dinner tonight. So Happy Taco Tuesday!

Weather has been pretty wet today. And supposed to be windy as heck tomm.

I am wanting to buy Adobe Lightroom, without the subscription. I want to do the one time fee.

Anyone know where I can but Lightroom for the one time fee, or an older version I can do that with?

Or a good alternative software that rivals Lightroom?  I had lightroom back in the day.

It is a badazz photography software. And I want to use it again.

I am going to pop off here. I wanted to shout out to everyone and say hi and wish everyone a safe and happy taco tuesday!

 








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: 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: Chrome Stopped Loading My Website Graphics




I think I may have found out the issue that I been trying to troubleshoot all day!  It is simple to, but confusing!

I have had an issue with the graphics loading on here.

When I use the chrome browser, they do not load. But if I use the firefox browser the site loads perfectly!  Sooooooooo, it looks like it is not an issue with my website after all and it is a chrome issue!

With that being said, it is a pain to work on the website when chrome don’t want to load the graphics. It makes it very challenging. OK, a real pain in the butt. But now that I have narrowed it down, I have to figure out why chrome ain’t loading the graphics now.

It definitely has me wondering and scratching my head going, hmmmmm.

It worked great on chrome, then all of a sudden it did not load the graphics. And the site loads great on the other browsers.

My question to you is:  Why all of a sudden did chrome stop loading my graphics, out of the blue?








Rickie Traeger: Tuesday November 5th 2019

Tuesday November 5th 2019 

So I been trying to add the pages back on to this website. I got several of them posted now 🙂   Be sure to go check those out!

Ran into an issue though. Some reason the graphics are not loading on my site now.  The server is barely even on a load, so I know the resources are free. Wondering why they are not loading now??? Frustrating, lol

So I been on this Mt Dew kick for awhile now. Starting today, I am going to see if I can stop drinking Mt Dew. I tried a few weeks back, but I got a major headache because the lack of caffeine.  I am going to try to drink just 1 a day now for a few days, then do every other day. So I still have the caffeine, but not as much. Crazy…  A simple pop, can give you a major headache if you don’t have one…SMH

They are talking more snow tonight.  So ready for spring time, and it has not even been officially winter yet, lol.  Bring the warmth!
