HI U OLE PATOOTS, ORH here and this topic is dear to my heart. It is about our freedom. Ya'll know how I am........ some love me and some don't. I am banned on Facebook and never use it. I just went on this site and could not pull up some things. Don't think this is D's problem. I think the thought cops have followed me here. We are in troubled times. Subject change........... I am pleased with the knowledge of the folks that are now looking after my lymphydemia situtation. Smarts count for certain. The young girl that was looking after me was just too green. She will cause lots of problems for folks until she learns. Too old to pay that bill. I expect the A team.

EC: Hello ORH,

 Can you please give more info about what you couldn't pull up? Did you try to search something via the search box and it didn't work? Try looking up things via the ailments index tab in the menu.

Someone also asked why we removed all the information on borax earlier today, which is odd. Guessing the search isn't working well.

HI U OLE PATOOTS,,,,,,,,, ORH here, and would not miss it for the world. These days, I need all the help I can get. For you city slickers, that is black eyed peas for luck, corn bread for gold and collard greens for green backs. Getting new counsel next week concerning my lymphedema and need all the luck I can muster. Sleeping with my feet elevated to gain some control. Found a new method of preparing Glutathione for nebulizing and it is far cheaper than compounding or via IV. Ingesting is not effective. My integrative doctor successfully uses Glutathione IVs for dementia. While on the subject....... currency is not money, as all will soon learn.

HI U OLE PATOOTS DOIN, ORH here and I have a yarn to spin. Fruit trees loaded with limbs breaking, but we too old to harvest as we have in years past. Made a deal with a neighbor where he picks the fruit and we share..... one for him and two for us. He called to thank me and know his wife is sickly. He told me that a neighbor down the road is going to turn these apples into sauce, jelly, etc., on halves. Do what? He said he would introduce her to me next week. ORH ain't dumb, regardless of what most think. What I am going to propose is that he pick and she process and we all share 1/3 each. No one in this county has a farm like ours. I planned it 30 years ago and it is now the envy of all. Problem is ....we too old to reap the harvest. Never thought I would get old. It is our farm and now 3 families are going enjoy the fruit. My survival sermons have gone unheeded except for one young fella down in Alabama. His dad was one of my buds that worked for me in Selma. He and his family will survive what is coming. He is smart enough to listen to my counsel. So what have we learned with this tale?

.......... LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF. Give things away and they will come back by the multitudes.

Out of spit.

HI U OLE PATOOTS, ORH here, with another neighbor story. Last week, we offered our Middle Tn lake neighbors all the tomatoes and peppers they could use for making Salsa. They picked 10 gallons of tomatoes and a toe sack of peppers. Today she came back to the lake and dropped off a small ice chest full of venison sausage cheese and pepper links. AUSM? My ole worn out heart is jumping for joy. I do love venison sausage. My Tractor Driver had told her to use Mrs Wages spices and add our peppers. Neighbor said, she'd made Salsa all her life, but this was the best. This Bible thing works. Right now, we all need a dose. ====ORH====

HI U OLE PATOOTS, ORH here, don't need money, but need love, so we are going to give our tomatoes away this week. Locals can pick 1/4 bushel. We have apples and pear limbs on the ground and will soon make that decision. Know all are following the news and know we are a sick and corrupt nation. I thought I was smart, but all this got by me. Would tell you some more neighbor stories, but you get the drift. Give stuff away and they can't stand it and have to give you more. Amazing how that works. I challange all you ole patoots to try this. Folks can't stand to be loved, they have to love you back 2X.

CAJUN TERM LAGNIAPPE -

I U OLE PATOOTS DOIN, ORH here, and I want to tell you of a custom that I learned while living in South Louisiana with the Cajun people. When ever they come to visit they have a gift for you. At first it put me on a guilt trip, but I's SJS and soon learned they they were telling me that they are my friends. So we have adopted this custom and most folks don't understand that they do not have to pay us back. However, it is a custom that leads to deep friendships and suggest that all try it out and see if it works.

Here in Tn, when we give stuff away to friends and neighbors, they are flabbergasted and think they owe us something. They owe us nothing. Just be a friend to us. Hey....... why not take a treat out to the rioters and see if you can make them your friend. That should tell you something. Would that be amazing?

HI U OLE PATOOTS DOIN, ORH here. Have you ever met a carpenter that thinks he is an artist and he is. He only works cedar furniture and he lives in Redneck Country and was going hungry. Folks bring him a picture of a $ 6,000 cedar bed and he charges them $1200. He only wants to make $20/hr. I have cut a deal with him to help us at the farm two days a week and we pay him what he wants and he gets to tote off all the garden stuff his vehicle will hold. We gave them food when the Covid 19 thing hit and they were without. He is now appreciative of that gesture. We have always worked HS kids and paid them minimum wage. But you had to hold their hand full time. I am going down fast but know that our veggies are the reason we are still alive. If we stop, then the game is over. My mind is still pretty good . Took an internet IQ test the other day and I's smartern ever. My poor old body is just worn out. The test was slanted to old stuff and old folks should do well, huh? So what is my message? When times get tough, the tough get going. The Boy Scouts and Ga Tech taught me how to think. But, Father Time is the best teacher of all. I now truly believe I will be smart at age 85.

HI U OLE PATOOTS DOIN, ORH here, with another garden story. We try to only raise heirloom veggies, but they can cross pollinate with neighbors and you have to keep them separate. We grow 4 variates of tomatoes.....Arkansas Travelers, Amish PASTE, RUTGERS AND CHERRY TOMATOES. Today, my tractor driver came over and picked a half bushel of each and went home to turn them into juice for winter time. When I came in, she had all the pulp and seeds in separate bowls. Seeds go to the bottom so I diluted and poured off the super net, and then put each into a bender and kept pouring off the super net until there was nothing but seeds. Poured that through a strainer and put that on a paper towel on a paper plate, and set them all out in the sun. I promise you that next year you will pay $10 for each. The reason you need to grow only heirloom is that the seeds save true. What you had last year you will have next year. All understand what this country is going through. You will not survive unless you know how your Paw Paw survived. All that eat GMO latent Glysophate store bought veggies will die a terrible death. The simple people that raise their own food have a shot of getting through this. As usual, I try to tell you that the Lord has provided, but you just need to listen. The COVID 19 thing is a perfect example. ===ORH===

Hi Ol' Robert. Love your stories and really appreciate the gardening advice. I'm the "tractor driver" (also a Kubota) at our house! But, I have no where near your energy when it comes to the myriad duties around our plot of desert. Wonder if you have any advice about the weeds - they always take over around now, especially the wiry grasses like Bermuda. Can't and won't use poison (too many animals including my burros). Have tried steaming with vinegar which works but is cumbersome, slow and labor intensive. Any ideas?

Be of good cheer! My wonderful dad used to tell my mother "don't worry today - I'll do all the worrying for you". And she would be a little irked, and answer "Yes, but you won't do it!"

All the best.

Borrolady, ORH here, some of this you are not going to like. In our raised beds, we use a cobra head hoe to loosen grass and remove by hand. In our main garden we lay down black mesh ground cover between rows. Where we plant field peas, we mow between the rows with a small regular lawn mower. Under our fence rows I do use roundup, but not around any veggies. We also have a flame device that we sometime use. Ground corn gluten initially helps to delay weed seeds and also has some fertilizer effect. The professional onion growers use this. You are right ...... gardening is not for lazy people. Lot of folk's garden fail because most maturing plants need side dressing. Secession planting allows using smaller gardens. As you know, we have a spring that we pump from to keep everything irrigated. No water, no garden. Out of spit. ==ORH==

Hi Ol' Robert. Thanks so much for your very detailed response regarding weeds - my nemesis. You're absolutely right - I indeed was looking for the easy silver bullet! We have tried the propane torch in the past with mixed results. I will probably have to get down on my bum and start pulling the suckers again. Had not heard of the corn gluten, so I'm guessing that my feed store might carry. Gives me another stall tactic. lol.

In our orchard, the burros are the most efficient weed eaters you ever saw, however, like most things that are too good to be true, they soon migrate to eating the leaves and then branches of the smallest most tender trees. Eventually, left to their own devices, they move on to gnawing the bark off the trunk of the trees. So, they require constant supervision - still easier on the back than doing it myself!

Be of good cheer!

HI U OLD PATOOTS, ORH here, and this is a saga of how the skies have changed over our lake cabin in the last 30 years. In 1989, the sky was always smokey. Worked almost 40 years in the paper industry so I have a feel for smog. This was smog, not the vapor from the forest. TVA installed a taller smoke stack at their Kingston Coal Plant. Guess who got the smog then....... yep New England, and they sued. Then came the Chem Trails and you could watch them form from early morning and by dawn, the sky was covered with a vale cover such that you could see no blue. My farm green house was coated such that it was no longer clear. For the last few months all the clouds look like my youth and the sky is a wonderful blue that you only see at the beach. Good people we had a far healthier life when folks were simple and let the Lord control the climate. I have mixed emotions, I think this pandemic can teach us things. Myself, I think all countries need a Benevolent Autocrat. We don't need Capitalism, Socialism, Islam, nor Communism. There is a book written that tells you how to get this man, and it has to be a man because he has to have a sack full of Testosterone to call the shots. Old men have lost their Testosterone because it has aromatized to Esterdiol. They are not old men, they are old wemmins. This past Tuesday my Anti-aging doctor pumped my fanny full of Testosterone pellets. I have the same male hormones as 30 year old. That is the reason, I am the way I am. My Tractor Drive still has the hormones of a young woman. That is the reason she still drives my tractor. I got ails, but still raise most of our food. You don't need an anti aging doctor...... just read. All doctors hate Suzzane Summers. Now, that is one tough hide. She knows her stuff. Startling to ramble, so best I close. Have you learned anything from my rant? Good.

HI U OLE PATOOTS, ORH here, and just pulled our first ears of corn and eating them tonight. It's a struggle to have to live off the land. No meat tonight.... just Ambrosia boiled corn on the cob, fresh vine ripe tomatoes, green onions, bell peppers, radish and raw beets with carrots all from our garden. Thank the Lord that our electric fence is keeping the critters at bay. Gave a church member some green beans last week and we got a loaf of banana nut bread in return. Lake neighbor from Middle Tenn left a gallon of blueberries on our stoop and they can't out do us, so we gave them our morning garden pickings. We'll show them. I just glad we around nice people. For instatance, we have a friend that had a blow that blew over some 20 or 30 large hardwood trees. He is going to try to salvage the main trunks but is going to let us have the large branches for firewood. I let him use my farm equipment that he needs. I like living along side good neighbors. That is the reason I hang with you EC folks. Nothing but good neighbors here. ====ORH====

HI YA'LL,,,,,,,, normally light hearted, but have a heavy heart now. Just got off the phone with my pastor and things are not good. His biopsy showed that he has pancreatic cancer. He is toast, if he follows the normal allopathic route. Our medical folks have zero clue and all die. That is not necessary if you research, the doctors who solved this cancer died mysteriously. I am going to get involved and he will live. Now that ought to get a 5 star on EC. We will see. Will keep all posted. I don't know squat, I just read a lot. Also, I wear things out. If it works, then I will die. Our medical folks do not want a cure for cancer. Cancer adds more to the economy than anything except for energy.

Opportunity has arisen. Let faith arise with it and conquer satans lies. My pastor neighbors son had that and then the pastor got liver cancer. They were apostolic Lutherans and I would go over to pray with them and they would remind me of the guildlines I was allowed to use. I broke all their rules and he got a liver transplant and the son overcame the cancer. Mark Hemans overcame stage 4 cancer. We are body mind and spirit so I fight on all three fronts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ao_wpZJwv6s

ART, ORH here, thanks for the info.

My wife has convinced me not to get involved because I have told him Joe Tippen's story twice. It's a mule to water thing. I have addressed low level cancer 3 X in my old life, and I guess I have kept it at bay. My first was when the two researchers at Purdue did a test they devised to detect stage one or two level cancer. I went on their protocol of a unique green tea that you drank every 4 hours 24/7. That was interesting. Years later I became concerned and we sent both our blood samples to Holland for the Nagalase test. Tractor Driver was good, but I was not. Then I started Transfer Point Beta 1,3D Glucan and a rigid detox, coffee enema's, etc. Got over that and about a year ago my PSA went into the danger area and I will never get a biopsy. My prostate was such that I had difficulty urinating. Read the dog dewormer story and went down that trail for about 6 months. PSA now down and can pee fine. If my pastor was interested.......... he would do the things that I just mentioned that worked for me. I would only use an oncologist to keep score. He would have to get off sugar, processed and junk food. He would never do that. He told me to pray for him and I will, but the Main Man also has told us the he has provided. I believe that with all my heart. We can solve most of our health problems with life style changes. Cannot believe that I am about the only advocate of eating good veggies on this site. Why wait until you in deep dodo? I sometimes get a guilt complex because I am talking preventive and not solving a health problem. Oh yes I am, you just don't get to experience the problem if you eat good food.

RAY, ORH here, worked in '67 on the start up of the paper mill in Shelton, Tx. Love Texans. What I did was get off my hormone modulation as far as Testosterone is concerned. Did the Joe Teppins protocol, took a prostate supplement( PROSTATE SUPREME), did my PEMF cancer program and drank lots of water. To find the Joe Teppins protocol, google " MY CANCER STORY ROCKS". It is simple as it gets. I am not good at convincing folks to avoid chemo, and radiation. Oh, forgot, I did Transfer Point's Beta 1,3D Glucan according to my weight. That tops out your immune system. Lots of success stories there. I am back on my Testosterone Pellets.

Charity, ORH here,,,,,, let me tell you a story as to how dumb I ams. Some 15 years ago, I started reading about anti-aging, but did not know squat. I learned of a firm in NC that tested your blood and told you which way was up. I e mailed them and ask them how does I get this blood test done and what will they tell me? The guy called back and told me they only work with doctors like Dr Troxell, who just moved to Knoxville. That is when I called her and we now blood kin after all this time. She loves my Tractor Driver because she does exactly what she says. Me....... I got to read up and may modify her directions. She still loves me a little. So........ yes progesterone is part of our hormone modulation that she monitors every 6 months. I listen to my doctors counsel, but do not necessarily take it. My IQ is probably higher than theirs. If a specialist doctor has a ego problem, then we clash. If they are a smart Redneck, like me, then we work it all out. They usually cave when I offer them good stuff from our farm. I cheats a little. Ya'll know how I ams.

I don't feel too smart and it's been a miracle just to get this far in life. I put in some seeds this year and just went to look up what they might look like so I can pull any weeds that try to sneak up on me. I am just catching my breath from being broken in person and trying to pull it together . I have kids that are on the ball. They hold back to keep people from getting discouraged by it. Made me feel a bit like the Yarn Princess trying to raise them. They are good people. Spouse was QA boeing, keeping planes safely flying . He likes things to be done properly. We are opposites in many ways so I am always a surprise to him. I always tell him, how can I explain myself to you if I can't figure myself out? How do you apply borax to plants? I know it kills bugs and adds boron. Do you have comfrey in your garden?

ORH here, and my short cuts causing me grief. Finished the electric fence around our corn and melons, but cost cutting did not work. I have 6.5kv at the charger but only 1.5kv at each line and you need 3.7kv to cause pain. Called the factory folks and they said I had a connection problem and they are right. Got parts to correct that, because we have melons head size and do not want to share with critters. Corn is tasseling and silking, but you need 6 rows for the natural pollination to work. When you have only 3 rows, then you have to shake each stalk and the male will meet the female and you will have filled out ears of corn. Folks that think there is not an intelligent fellow somewheres controlling things, have never raised a garden. Our 3 pear tree limbs are breaking due to too much fruit. Tractor Driver says we have 6 cases left from last year. Think we will survive, least things get more violent. City slickers buying up land in our area. Problem is they brought their politics with them. None go to church and work on Sunday. Main man is upset. Not our way. ====ORH====

I am contemplating corn. I started a dozen in a box that are sprouting and it's my first time in years trying any new things outside. Put in comfrey (lifesaver)and had a few peonies, pinks, and bulbs but weeds and grass took over while I was feeling poorly. Neighbor (keeper of the seed bank) gave us plants, a tomato, 3- tomatios, and some marigold sprouts . Put in a couple rows in the dirt of pea seeds and then the rabbits came a snacking . Spouse put up a fence 8 x 16, only a brave deer will jump into that, with a gate and I continued to dig outside the fenced area, had to move two compost bins surrounded by tall grass and that took a week, so I could plant potatoes and later put in corn. Still thinking, and the potatoes are sprouting and corn starts in the box need put in the ground . I also need to put more corn seeds in with them. Saw what you wrote and found this little article . I know it's late to be seeding, my seeds are four years old, so not much to lose. Didn't think they would sprout . Heirloom seeds from neighbor, years ago. Summer started this week. Now for Gods smile and it should all work out : 0 and some faith. Outfront we are tackling blackberry mountain while we still have a burn window . Blessings, charity

Hemp seems like a perfect subsistance crop, though. Comparatively corn seems like a waste of space. They say molasses, wheat germ, yogurt, and brewer's yeast were the superfoods years ago. You've got your minerals, your vitamin e, probiotics, fats, protein, and calcium, and then more protein and B vitamins. How are you determining what to plant? Just what grows best? Or what you like?

What did my sharecropper PawPaw buy when he went to town every Saturday in a mule wagon? He had his corn ground, so we need corn meal. He bought flour, salt and maybe pepper. He made his own molasses and we loaded with honey. We good there. I know I may sound wild and strange, but we in strange times. Our life style is going backwards and you better figure that out pronto. We are fixing to live like our great grandparents did. My current chore is to install a solar system at our farm that will water our garden. Water is #1. Does this upset you? What about our current events ......does that upset you.

We are setting aside beds that the Main Man raises..... unbelievable. Tractor Driver does the flowers for the church but we have set aside a bed they come up on it's on. All she does is to pick the flowers. We have a dill, and cherry tomato bed that the come up every year on their own. This year I let our collards go to seed and put them in a raised bed. We will have greens this winter and it all just happened. We have potatoes the we did not plant. We just left them in the ground. There is a man the looks over us and If you think not, then your I Q is 75. If your IQ is 150 then you think you are he. My IQ is 129 and that is high enough to know that I's smart but low enough to know that there are folks lots smartern me. I love being where I am because I know I have to work for what I get. Wearing all out with my tales, so will close. ====ORH====

You're welcome, Cindy.

Also, for everyone interested in visiting the links, I apologize that I accidentally duplicated the first link, thereby making five links instead of four. The duplicated link is the third one. In addition, because of how I typed the Web addresses when I posted my message, the actual addresses that were generated from what I typed are different from how the links look on the webpage (moving a mouse pointer over each link will show that each address being linked to is truncated—this might have to do with quotation marks in addresses). In order to visit the webpages at those links, one could highlight each link, copy the highlighted content, and then paste the content in the address bar of one's Web browser (the address bar can also be referred to as a location bar and possibly by other names). Alternatively, one could also type the Web addresses by hand into the address bar, although I usually copy and paste because when I type, there is a possibility that I will mistype something.

Below are steps for copying and pasting the links when using a computer.

• To highlight with a mouse or other such pointing device, start by positioning the cursor or pointer on the screen to the right of the link. (Note that these steps must go from right to left even though English is typed from left to right because starting on the left side can cause content above the link to be selected.)
• Then click with the mouse or pointing device.
• After that, hold down the Shift key on the keyboard of the computer, press the left-arrow key on the keyboard repeatedly until the entire link has been highlighted, and then let go of the Shift key. To speed up the highlighting process, one can hold down the left-arrow key instead of repeatedly pressing it. Also, on a Macintosh computer, holding down both the Shift key and the Option key while repeatedly pressing the left-arrow key can cause more content to be selected with each press of the left-arrow key. On a Windows computer, holding down both the Shift key and the Alt key while repeatedly pressing the left-arrow key might do the same.
• Then, at the top of the screen on a Macintosh computer or at the top of the Web-browser window on a Windows computer, look for a menu bar. On a Windows computer, if there is no menu bar displayed, try pressing the Alt key on the keyboard; doing so might cause a menu bar to display. Also regarding Windows, the top of the Web-browser window might or might not be at the top of the screen of the computer; therefore, the menu bar might not be at the top of the screen.
• If a menu bar is found, click the menu-bar item Edit.
• From the menu that should display, click Copy.
• Alternatively, instead of using a menu bar, one could use the keyboard shortcut Command-C on a Macintosh computer or Ctrl-C on a Windows computer.
• After copying the selected link, in the address bar (it can also be referred to as a location bar and possibly by other names) of the Web browser (the address bar usually is a wide rectangle near the top of the browser), highlight the content there and delete that content.
• For some Web browsers, one could use a keyboard to highlight the content of the address bar with the keyboard shortcut Command-L on a Macintosh computer or Ctrl-L on a Windows computer.
• After deleting the content that was in the address bar of the browser, paste the copied link by clicking the menu-bar item Edit and then clicking the menu choice Paste.
• Alternatively, one could use the keyboard shortcut Command-V on a Macintosh computer or Ctrl-V on a Windows computer.
• After pasting the link, press the Return key on a Macintosh computer or the Enter key on a Windows computer.

For copying and pasting the links when using a touchscreen device, such as a phone or tablet, the steps might vary.


• Try pressing and holding on a link to see if a menu choice appears that gives one an option to select content.
• If no option to select content appears, try pressing and holding on a word that is not part of the link, such as a word that is near the link, either above it or below it.
• If an option to select content appears, tap that option.
• It is possible that, after one has tapped an option to select content, there will appear on the screen some sort of user-interface elements that allow the changing of the size of the selected area. For example, a circle might appear near the beginning of the selected area, and another circle might appear near the end of the selected area.
• If there are such circles, try pressing and dragging one circle to move the beginning of the selected area to the beginning of the link. Then try pressing and dragging the other circle to move the end of the selected area to the end of the link.
• Once the changing of the selected area has been accomplished, a menu should be displayed on the screen.
• If a menu is displayed on the screen, look for a copy option on the menu, or, if there is no such copy option, look for an arrow or triangle symbol. If there is an arrow or triangle symbol instead of a copy option, tap the arrow or triangle symbol to see if a copy option is then displayed. One might need to tap the arrow or triangle symbol multiple times before a copy option displays.
• If a copy option is found, tap that option.
• If a copy option is not found, try tapping the address bar (it can also be referred to as a location bar and possibly by other names) near the top of the Web browser. If that highlights the address that is already there, then type the link by hand. After typing the address, one might need to tap the Return key, the Enter key, the Go key, or some other similar key on the keyboard.
• If the copy option is found, tap the address bar near the top of the Web browser. If a menu displays, look for an option to paste or to paste and go. If no such options are displayed, one might need to type the link by hand. After typing the address, one might need to tap the Return key, the Enter key, the Go key, or some other similar key on the keyboard.
• If an option to paste or to paste and go appears, tap one of those options. If the paste option is the one tapped, one might need to then tap the Return key, the Enter key, the Go key, or some other similar key on the keyboard.

I hope that the foregoing helps with regard to some of the technical matters of accessing information. Perhaps it's somewhat similar to archaeology: the information exists, but some specific technical steps are necessary to get to it. Because some people's areas of knowledge specialty are in areas other than information and communication technology, I wanted to make sure that I could help equip others with the necessary tools to the extent that I could do so.

Sincerely,

J.

Site Suggestions

Posted by Incomprensible (Nz) on 06/21/2020

Hi,

I am amazed that you are using "google" when you search at your website.

This is for me incomprensible as Google censors all alternative health info.................... Or are you part of them as controlled opposition???

EC: Hello,

We've used Google search since 2004. They indexed the many posts and pages on our platform the best in the past,  but please make a suggestion and we'll research other search engines.

Happy New Year, everyone! Hope it's off to a great start!

Thanks mmsg from europe for your post to "diedre" this morning asking us to remove the duplicate recent answers page. We decided to put all new posts on just this recent posts page again, including pet posts, as having everything separated didn't make much sense even though the pages loaded faster.

P.S. It's Deirdre, by the way, not Diedre.

EC: No problem! And it's Dei and not Die  rdre.

Diedre, when I open Earth Clinic I get a blurb about "There are problems with the security certificate for this site". Of course I hit "continue" but I was wondering if your programmers should know about this.

EC: Hi Mmsg,

Thank you so much for letting me know! We do have a security certificate but maybe we need another one. Will have the programmer check it out asap.

Hi Mmsg,

Can you please let us know which page you are on when you see the site certificate message? We can't duplicate your issue. All our browser pages are showing https://

Thanks!

I guess you did something good because I've tested twice now and that blurb is gone! Thank you!

EC: Ok, great!

If someone uploaded an image in their post in the past, we discovered that it might show that message, but on the majority of pages, it won't.
