Fresh Post after absence

As you can see,,I have my connection back.

I am terribly dissapointed in Bellsouth,,oh,,excuse me,AT&T/Bellsouth.

Can you believe we had to have a Deputy get involved just to get this straightened out?And I am not sure that it IS straight just yet.

Yet,,,Thank You Officer!(You know who you are.)

Anyway,,the pg view counter was sitting at 3905 w/69 showing for yesterday.Thank you.

I have posted parts 14 & 15 to Wee!Gee! before I lost my connection,,and if you haven't read those yet,,well,,it's a good thing because I haven't wrote any more than that yet and now you have something new to read.

I don't know what happened to my main sites front page but it's blank except for the site title and the graphics.(Maybe I did it.I was going to make some changes,,but not like that.)

Anyway,,I hope those who have been reading Wee!Gee! and had allready found the two new parts,,or those who are now going to go read them,,enjoy them.

And I really appreciate the page peeks.Thanks again,folks!

Ya'll come back now,,y'hear?!

MORE AT&T BS,a bee colony recovered,wax moths,bad beetles fired up,,and over 4000 peepers peeking


I am writing this on Jan 7th.
As of then my connection has been down for 4 days.
It turns out that there is still an unauthorized name associated with our phone/dsl conection that is causing a problem.
I have spoken about this  in a previous set of blog entries (______) and have to say that even though I have been an adamant Bellsouth supporter ever since AT&T as added their 'bs' to BS,,the BS has seemingly become more than an 'inconvenient acronym'.

I am very disappointed in the way things have been going.
And yet it made me focus on what may be an intriguing and troubling pattern.

Has any one else noticed that the 'phone' companies are seemingly more concerned with 'cell phone use' as opposed to 'land lines'?
I know that the reason can easily be attributed to the 'popularity' of cell phones by those who rarely think beyond their own convenience.
Yet,,that doesn't make that an accurate and appropiate attitude to have regarding the issue,,especially considering the implications.

Now,,I am doubtful many average folks reading this blog may have seen the connection between this subject and the recent 'phone tapping by the Bush Admin issue'.
In light of that,,let me explain:
Even though every one was using the old phrase,,'phone tapping',,the method mainly used,,unfortunately lost in the media clutter,,was,,cell phone signal interception.
IOW,,there were very few 'lines' tapped,,there were mainly 'radio waves' picked up.
Now,,pick up your cell phone,,read the back or the 'manual' for it and you will see that it falls under FCC regs for a 'radio device'.
Then look for the TOS.
Find a clause that says you can be assured of the privacy of your transmission.
I can allmost guarantee you will find nothing of the sort.
Why?
Because it is a radio,,just like a walkie talkie except a cell phone is more sophisticated and on a different set off frequencies.
A 'land line' is a solid/physical connection.
THAT 'wire',,or even 'an optical fiber',,can carry an assurance of 'privacy' and is the 'tappable thing' in the phrase 'phone tap'.
NOT broadcast radio waves.

Now,,given that,,why is everyone so anxious to conduct sensitive discussions over the air waves which anyone with the right device can intercept?
Even you or me.
There are devices out there that can recieve them,,there are also devices which can be modified to do so.
Not to mention that there are ways to intercept and 'alter' the voice over internet systems that are also popular.
I believe I posted something about a horror story some family as been living because some one hs figured how to 'hack' their cell phone accounts.
Even making them turn on unnoticed and recording the conversations hearable and sending them as voice mail.

So,,why the 'infatuation' with them when the gripe was over security and privacy concerns?
(Not to mention the 'gps' locating features now)
And why does it seem like the 'corps and companies' are pushing the 'cell phones' so hard?
Do I think the phone company would 'force' folks off a land line and onto a 'cell phone'?
They are making me consider it,,but I don't want to.
How about you?
Oh,,do you allready have one?And all you have is wireless service?
I see.
(That figures)

Well,to me this is something that should make the conspiracy nuts all jittery and I am surprised that no one has picked up on it,,that I know of anyway.

About the 'bee colony'.
After I reported the 'demise' of the colony I experienced a surprise.
The bees came back,,sort of.
There were two 'hatchings' after the first 'disappearence'.
Unfortunately,,they were all pretty much affected in the same way as the one I described in the previous post about them.
(Uneven,incomplete,malformed wings.)
And given the huge numbers of them that wound up littering the ground in pretty large piles,,I was able to see other 'abberations' in their bodies,,like disproprtionate body sections,,odd shaped or missing limbs and others.
Upon subsequent investigation of the hive I spotted a moth just outside of the opening and later,,seen more inside.
There were the several species of ants of course,,along with 'larval worms' of some kind and a type of beetle.
After a little 'web research' I identified the moth,worm and beetle' and two of the most common foe of the honey bee.
The moth is a 'wax moth' and I don't recal the name of the beetle.
The 'larval worm' was the intermediate stage of the 'wax moths' life stages before becoming an adult.
(These apparently eat the wax in the honeycombe which would 'crack open' the bees prematurely.That explained the 'unformed and malformed' features as well as why they didn't survive long.

Now,,given that these pests are the bane of the honey bee,,I decided to 'burn' the log the hive was in and destroy the creatures in situ.

Yet,,the story has a NOT UNHAPPY ENDING.
About a week ago,,a guy came out of the woods/field behind our building asking if anyone had lost some bees.

It seemed the queen had vacated.Along with a number of workers.
They had wound up in a corner of the fellows chicken coop.
So,,we gave him the number to the bee keeper we had called when they showed up here.
(He really couldn't work them for honey because the hollow log couldn't be opened so since they weren't 'african' I didn't cut the log and have him take them.)
But he wound up with them anyway.
This way is better than if he had took the log,,though.If he had taken the log then his yard could have become infested from the moth and beetle in it.
So overall,,I am no longer as sad about the situation as I was.
(It does just go to show ya how God has things working even if we don't know it.And He did arrange to let me know how it turned out for the ol'girl and her retinue.)

Okay,,,as of this writing,,,I have had a pg view count of 4048 for the month of December.
That number was on Jan 2nd and was a so far for the month total.
My highest one day count was 429 on the 1st day of January.
I am tickled plumb purple by that and want to say,,
"THANK YOU,very,very,very much!!!"
(Naturally,,with the beginning of the month looking good like that,,,the AT&T/BS had to bump my connection on the 3rd.)

The demise of a bee hive,,evolution,a dead budgie & 3616 peepers!

It's been 12 days since I updated my blog.I had posted part 13 of Wee!Gee! about a week ago and wound up forgetting to make an entry here saying so,,sorry.

The view counter is showing 3616 so far with 88 yesterday.I do appreciate those who keep coming through to see if there is any new stuff.

And for the first timers,,thanks and 'welcome'!

I have put up a Staks entry concerning evolution.It is a ccp article from moneil.And since moneil seems to be a bit reserved when it comes to using moneils own words rather than ccp'ing,,I treated his article like a regular board post:

http://royharbin.tripod.com/staks/evilutinary_science_swerve.html

Now,,I ain't no scientist,,but there seems to be certain things that the adherents of evolution quite often appear to gloss over or misdirect focus off of and onto less relevant aspects and way from more revealing info.

That's what I attempt to point out in that piece.

And here's an update on those bees:

After having filled up the hollow space that they started in,completely,,with honeycombe,,they had began to expand into an adjacent yet smaller space.

Then we had a slight cold snap.This seemed to mark a decline in the hive.A few days after it warmed up again,,I noticed dead bees scattered around and a gradual increase in ant presence.I do not know the actual cause of that event,,,but along towards the final days,,I noticed one bee that seemed apparently healthy except for one wing which seemed 'smaller' than the other like it wasn't as finished.

About three days before I saw that bee,,some critter had apparently been sitting right above the hole because there were a couple of pieces of scat/pellets/feces tht made me think rat,,either field or norway but large enuff to pass marble sized pieces.

Eventually,,I assume as the bees numbers dwindled,,and perhaps that occured due to defending the colony from this critter,,the combes showed nibbles and as of now are well chewed since the hole has been broken open more.

I also noticed that as the bees numbers dwindled,,the combes turned dark.Even while there were quite a few still there.Now they are quite brown and produce a rotting odor.What little's left that is.

Over all,,I am saddened at the way it ended.I find myself hoping that maybe the queen vacated because the total emptyness was rather abrupt seeming.

And the sadness is even comppounded by the death of our budgie.Apparently a 'mouse' that had making raids on our place bit one of his little feet and he wound up totally weakened and expiring before we had a clue there was anything wrong wwith him.There was no sign of blood that we noticed.

We aren't sure when it happened.But he died on the 10th.I ain't really a bird dude,,and the little feather brained squawaker really made me mad sometimes for conducting screeching sessions so sharp I allmost expected my ears to bleed,,but I am gonna miss him.

Actually,,I allready do.

But,,here's all the parts to Wee!Gee! (sofar) with the TWO new parts since my last blog entry.

(intro) (prt1) (prt2) (prt3) (prt4) (prt5) (prt6) (prt7) (prt8) (prt9) (prt10) (prt11) (prt12) (prt13) (prt14)

Again,,thanks for clicking in and,,

A long time to get to tomorrow,3422 peeps and a twelth part to Wee!Gee!

I did say it was a 'tentative' maybe.Sorry.
But,,I am almost done painting our office.

3422 pg views (so far) with 120 yesterday.
Thank you!

And I bet at least some of you were looking for the next part to Wee!Gee!
Well,,ta-dah!!,,here it is,,

Wee!Gee! Part 12
(It's actually a little shorter than I wanted it to be,,but it's cohesive and moves the story along adequately.I actually couldn't figure how to 'start' it.I think I worked it out pretty well.er,,At least I thought it was pretty good.)

Sorry it took a while.

I have added two more (I think) links pile pages,,just check for filled in numbers in the index.
There have been no 'conversations' worth adding to the Staks but I have been dropping in the boards in between trying to piece together the next few parts of Wee!Gee!.
Also,,I have been doing some research on 'ouijie,,er make that ouija' boards and ran into some rather interesting material.I will put it together and place it in the Piles,,later.
I want to thank you folks who have been checking in,,or dropping in from the board or such.

Now,,if only I can get some 'reviews','critiques' or even 'criticisms' from one or two of you,,it would be really great.
But even if not,,thank you all for keeping the Tripod pg view counters numbers up.
I do appreciate it.

Ya'll come back now,,ya'hear?!?

3029 peeks,two posting pundits peeved,new sections,usable site services,search,message boards & comment forms

3029 peeks.

3029 page views!!
THANKS YA'LL!!
I am humbled and honored.Seriously,,I am surprised that people have looked at my pages that many times.
With 115 yesterday and a sofar single day highest total of 207 on the 11th.
(No,,I am not counting 'visits',,just looks.)

And I have to give a shout out to 'infun' since he claims he 'instigated' an opportunity for me to 'promote' my site here.
You can read what I am referring to in 'A Thread Named Harbin'.That's one of the three 'forum exchanges' the phrase 'two posting pundits peeved' in the entry title refers to.
It seems I got him,,'infun' and ol'pk irked at me again by participating in a couple of threads each one started.
'A PKPost:#1652' was pks particular venue for another one of his 'guessing games' that allmost invariably turn into a 'bush bashing'.(Like this one did too.)
As for infun,,his undergarments apparently crinkled right up when I chipped in my two pennies in what I thought was a rather 'entertaining way'.He went all 'royally pretensious' over me contributing in a 'public forum' and,,well,anyways,,it's called ' Nov 5th '.
And here is the starting point for the 'empirical ire' which I incurred,, 'Ignition'.
(And it's a good illustration of how debates degenerate rapidly when one side feels 'overwhelmed'.)

I have gotten several of those sections that I talked about previously started.
Here is the index for 'The Links' section.
It is not complete and has links to link pile pages right now,,very few at that but that will change.
And here is the index for ' The LinksPile '.
Right now The LinksPile has more links,,the ones with the numbers filled in are 'active'.
You will find 'Web Walks' there and pages with links grouped by topic.Like politics,strange,science,,etc.

Finally,,I am happy to say that you can now actually search those sections and all of my site,,along with the web and the message boards I have set up by using the 'NOW straightened out' search feature from 'Master.Com' that I have hooked into this site.
(How come no one could have sent me an email saying it was messed up?~sigh~)

You can enter it by going to my Main Site and clicking on the 'Site Services' link in the nav bar or go to the ' mastercom page ' which has access to the message boards/discussion forums a 'formal feedback form' and a ' poll/comment form ' as well.
Or you can click on the link in this blogs nav bar titled 'RH-MC News' in Group Two.

Sorry though,,no new Wee!Gee! episode yet.
That's next on my list so look for it tomorrow.
Of course,,make that a tentative maybe since I may not get to it as I plan to,,I have a few 'spruce up' projects going on like floor staining,wall painting,dog washing,molding installation and yada,yada,,etc,etc,,,ya'll know how it is.
(But be patient please,,I'm 'working on it',,seriously.Don't go raising no 'kane',,'kay?!~smile~)
But just so's you folks have a heads up,,that story has to take a turn to a 'darker tone',,be prepared.
 
In the mean time,,I hope some may find some of what I put up interesting,informative or entertaining.
(I did.)

One more time,,to those who keep coming back and those who came through the first time,,
'THANK YOU!!'
3029 pg views by the 14th.
WOW!!
Thank you.

Ya'll come back now,,ya'hear?!

2,552 peeks,soldier morale support & 9 Bible questions

Howdy!
~smirk~

  Thanx to you folks clicking in I have had 2,552 pg views for the month of October,,83 yesterday.Now,,I have to admit,,the Tripod module seems a little schizoid on occasion,,yet even so,,that's not too bad for a piddly little 'evil white mans' site.Thanx,ya'll!

  I happened across a set of links I think some may be interested in.Well,,that is as long as someone cares to give a little support to a fellow American who is serving in our military.
 Whether or not you agree with the policies they may be serving under,,they are still fellow humans and Americans,,or in the case of those serving without being full citizens yet,,fellow humans showing serious dedication to becoming a US citizen.

  Over to the left of this page,,in the nav bar,,(as this post gets bumped down it will be above you) is 'Group Three' in that set of links you will find 'military service related links'.
  Using them can help show and perform support for the 'people' doing the job they are doing.From the official Army  homepage,,(that link has a flash splash index,,use this one if you run with 'flash players' off, http://www4.army.mil/ ),,to NAACRA  http://www.naccrra.net/ ,,which does stuff for air force servicemembers kids and such,,to a NON tee totaling site,, http://www.sixpacksforsoldiers.com/
through which you can 'toast' of fighting folks,,wherever they are.
To that list I am adding two more I found in a post on the Excite politics board:

http://www.anysoldier.com
http://www.treatanysoldier.com/

  The sites (which have been featured on CNN,AustralianBC,RTE and even TV-P1 a news program in Poland) were started by the parents of an active duty service man,,you can send care packages to either 'any soldier',to a particular soldier or even in honor of one.You can contribute to the cause by purchasing items like caps,pens,mugs, bumper stickers and can even downlaod a toolbar developed with MIT and Yahoo! for your pc that allows them to get a few cents everytime you use it.

  Now,,about '9 Bible questions'.Infundibuulum6,,,a poster mostly referred to as 'infun',,in the Excite forums asked a set of questions,, and santasbaby added one,,that deserved some kind of 'reasonable' answers.
  So,,I answered them,,with reference links,,and that made it one of those huge responses that I put in 'The Staks'.Its pimarily focused on 'first earth age' stuff with a cupla about reincarnation vs resurrection too.Santasbaby asked what 'race' Adam and Eve were called.

  Now,,like I said to infun,,my answers may not be satisfying,totally accurate or even make any sense at all to you.
  I may not be right,,but I ain't claiming to be.I just want to be able to help folks seeking understanding to gain it.That usually only happens when folks share gathered knowledge,ideas,questions,doubts and beliefs they possess with others.And quite often,,reconsidering my own assertions helps me gain better understanding for myself.
  Whether or not many,,or any for that matter,,that read it think it has any of those qualities worth passing on,,
'hoooo',,here it is anyway:


http://thestaks.tripod.com/archives/excite/9_bible_questions.html

  For those who may not have found your way to The Staks,yet,, here's the Archive Index.
  It is filled with responses,replies and retorts to various posts in the Excite Politics Forum.
(It's not all just me running my mouth,,er typing,,there are the things the other folks said there also.)
  I know,,not everybody likes to read stuff like that,,but some do.I posted it,,sort of,,for them.But mainly I post them,,because I want to.
  I see a lot of real 'off base' stuff sometimes that somebody needs to make an effort to oppose,,or help others understand better.

But,,I typed what I typed,,so,,

"Accept NO substitutes!"

2512 looky loos,,site decorating and waning analog tv reception

Hey,,for those who have been stopping in and not finding anything new,,I apologize.
I know that there have been 2512 look ats across this site,,62 yesterday,,so I know someone is at least a little dissapointed.Maybe.
I have to say I haven't been goofing off. I have been working on stuff and things for those other sites,,in part.And there is a whole off line world that keeps right on rolling along that can't be ignored or put off.
I've been playing with the templates,,making graphics to fit into them,,adjusting text,,and the hardest part..plotting,planning and producing pages and their content.

And somedays,,I just don't seem to have it in me to do much at all.(lingering effects from mold *see 'FIFOII' )

Those bees are being cool,,no problems at all with them.I am still waiting to find out if I can borrow a beesuit and move them myself.Allthough,,the more I think about it,,the more I think I could make one myself.
If I do,,I will make sure I get a pic or two with my web cam to post here.I haven't finished that disposables roll yet so I don't have the shots of the bees or the ones of the eclipse available.
And NO,,I haven't wrote any more of Wee!Gee! but I am just as soon as I get done posting this.

As regards the ATT/BS problems.I can't find our mailboxes.But the service is up and humming,,the phones fine and all the names are correct.
I don't really use the 'mail service' they provide much anyway so,,right now,,I ain't poking nothing.

Here's an aside,,did you know about the swapping of analogue television signals to digital transmissions is set to go into effect in 2 years?
For the massive majority of folks that doesn't mean anything at all.I may as well have said,,'womp-wompwa-wah-wawah'.
It means,,for those without cable or satellite television signal services that their tv's won't pick up local broadcast signals with out a converter box.
A boatload of old tv's will be deemed obsolete.
But there is supposed to be a converter box available for those unable to or undesirous of going to cable or satellite.
Now,,since there is as yet NO one announcing plans for making and selling the needed converter apparatus I am curious as to what happens to our Civil Alert System.
Not to mention,,,I am a life long advocate of broadcast tv and prefer it to the other services available.
Why?
Well,,for one,,it's local.Two,,it's free after the cost of the set and aerial.No recurring bill after purchase.
Three,,even if the signal isn't clear,,you still get signal.
I ain't super picky regarding tv quality when it's balanced by superior cost benefits.
I don't mind some snow,,or a little fade out here and there.And finding the signal can be fun,,or rather funnily frustrating occasionally.
If it's digital it operates on a 'threshold' concept which means that if there is a certain amount of signal degradation the screen 'blanks out'.
Sometimes,,I watch when all I can do is hear.And that is no different than if I am sitting here lookaing at the pc screen while 'listening' to the tube,,which is on right now.
I know,,I know,,that ain't good enough for most other folks,,but it's no cost and keeps me in touch to local events,news and businesses as well as those Citizen Alert aspects.
And I see this change as something that could be a set up for potentially devasting,,or at least depressing occurances of 'lack of communication' contributing to lost lives.

I could have talked about politics as an aside,,but everybody seems to do that these days.
And does it ever really change?
The only thing that really concerns me is the idea that America seems to be under a multilevel set of attacks against the core set of basic values and concepts that made it great.
Or at least any part that has any thing to do with the tradional cultural elements generally regarded as those relating to conservative mores,religious parity,and individual self determination.

Maybe I should say it like this,,the attacks,,from many different elements,,not all or even many acting in true concert or collusion with any others,,seem directed at the historical culture concept of the American white christians,,with an emphasis against males,,straight ones at that.
All under the 'umbrella' of that group having been responsible for all the other groups ills,woes and trobles.All down through the entire history of the planet.
Look around,,if ya can't see it,,,then later,,after I get them laid out built and decorated,,I'll make it so you can walk down some logic trails and take a look for yourself.
That's what those two sites are going to be for.

And,,btw,,if anyone has anything they may wish to contribute,,and yes,,I decide if it's worthwhile for inclusion,,concerning the history of the dutch,english,native american or german peoples,,particularily during the formation of or after coming to America please feel free to submit it for consideration.Previous periods are fine too.
It could be for,against,personal or institutional oriented.As long as it's clean,,fairly reasonably thought out and does not require editing for spleen ventiong vitriol or obscene vendectives,,I will be glad and pleased to include it.
You can either use your real name or a chosen 'nom de plume' or I wil make one up for you,,but I do need your real name for my own use as regards 'publishing/posting rights'.
I assure you of your anonymity from the web surfing public.

And no,,I won't send you spam or sell your addy.

So,,now I'm gonna go write some more of 'Wee!Gee!',,I even want to get past the 'back story' and back to the house and see what happens next.(And I heard from my wife that a little Kane might get raised if I don't write more soon.~smirk~wink~)
But,,what's up with the 'crude' board that came from a 'witch doctor'?
And how can it be pertinent or relevant years later?
Ummm,,let's see,,,,,,,,,

(wow!I just seen that I need to add links to the parts after part 7,,I am sorry guys.It will get fixed first)

Ya'll come back now,y'hear?!

BS,,an old queen,2638 look ats & 'the evil white man'

No,,AT&T/BS didn't mess up.I just haven't managed to make an entry for a bit longer than I planned.Things ta do,,ya know?
I have been busy putting a cupla few sites together and running some trails,,logic trails that is.(That's what I call it when I read articles or stuff online and do searches on
items,elements and ideas found in the material or that come to mind while reading them.I actually enjoy it and it comes in handy when debating or discussing stuff in the forum boards.
I recently did one on Obama and surprisingly enough I discovered he was linked to a few organizations that blew my mind.Through his churches affiliations at that!
(Even if I could vote,,I wouldn't vote for him.)Anyways,,I sometimes,,read that 'often',,get totally engrossed while doing them and wind up spending more time on them than I wanted to.

Funny thing though,,and pleasantly surprising to me,,I have had more pg view totals for a month than I ever have.2638.Thank you,I appreciate it.Remember,,feel free to let me know your thoughts and opinions.
(eventually someone will,,even if it's just to tell me off)

Oh,,about AT&T/BS,,they didn't cause me to get back on line,,but as of right now I haven't managed to get BSMail going.The partnership just seems to have messed up BS's track record as far as I'm concerned.
I have allways considered them a 'premium provider' and never really had anything negative I could say about the quality of their service but since the AT&T hookup,,it ain't true no mo'.

I finally got a beekeeper to come take a look at that hive.They aren't africanzed killers according to him.And here's how he told me,,
After allready walking up to the hive in the log,,and while actually leaning on it,he tells me,,'No,,they're regular bees,,",then taps on the log lightly,",,otherwise they would allready bee after us.'
I was a tad stunned.But I wasn't stung.
He said that chances were good that the colony had an old queen that had abdicated her throne in another hive.She,,and the hive shouldn't last more than a couple of seasons if that IS the case.
Given that,,and the fact that he stated that seeing as how he would have to destroy the log to work the hive,,he couldn't do much more than take them away and put them in his bee yard.
As well as his rule of thumb regarding moving bee hives,,"Either three feet or three miles".
And a friend of ours said she has a friend with a bee suit.
If I can use it for a month or so,,I will move them myself out into the field behind us.
IF,,I can get the suit.Otherwise if I cut the log into a smaller chunk the bee guy will take them.

I have added the above mentioned logic trail to The Staks Archive and I have added a two more 'official' sites to the list.
The sites are titled after the seperate parts of the title of this site:
'dangdingieamerican' and the 'theevilwhiteman'.They are on Tripods server.
I will use them as the names infer.
Think of it like this,,'dangdingieamerican' is for the 'dam,dirty american',,as the world seems to see us.
And 'theevilwhiteman',,well,,that one is self evident.No?
Not that I intend for either to be vulgar or extreme in what I present there and no,,it's not like I am building a white racist set of sites either.
My goal is to be able to present,,in a reasonable fashion,,what I consider to be evidence or illustrations of what I see as a growing trend to 'villify' and ignore racism directed towards
white folk in general (at theevilwhiteman) and American whites,,dutch,irish,englis and german in particular.As seperate demographics and as a larger group.
At dangdingieamerican it will be a different take on those same ethnic groups and my Native American ancestry also.

My hope could be said to be that some folks may see what I present and come to an understanding of how it isn't just and only white people who think and act in racially biased ways.
Or it could be said that I just want to put it out there,,because I wanna and don't care who likes it.

Either way,,'hoot,,there it is!:

ACCEPT NO SUBSTITUTES!!

And ya'll come back now,,y'hear?!
