Q: Why do I think there's a commie behind every tree?

Utilize the language with the same manipulation the Commies do, using the phrase "VACCINE FREE" instead of "UNVACCINATED" or "NON-VACCINATED"

Conditions Improved

In this post the other day I highlighted the high fire danger conditions around my home and the region. I am pleased to report that thanks to the over 3 1/2" of rain we received (with higher rain amounts in the CT river valley) in the last 24 hours, the spring wild fire season may be completely over. The leaf canopy and green ground cover is going to explode when the sun comes up. Also, the water levels in the rivers, streams, ponds, and swamps are way up. This means plenty of water supply for rural firefighting operations. Fishing will improve in the next few days too.

Pagan Dirt Worship Day 2023

Otherwise known as Earf Day. Every April 22nd for now 53 years. I remember the first one when I was in the second grade. Air, land, and water pollution was the big focus. We were preached to not to litter. Are you old enough to remember this weeping Indian commercial?


In modern America, pollution had pretty much been eradicated, at least until every Branch Covidian started wearing and then tossing masks and gloves everywhere. In Third World hell holes though, not so much. Open smokestacks, dumping in waterways, no HAZMAT mitigation, open sewers, etc. Yet somehow, WE AMERICANS need to pay more of our hard earned income and wealth to magically save the planet from their transgressions!

NEWSFLASH: the planet doesn't need our "saving." We can not permanently damage the planet, nor do we have the power to save it if it is to be destroyed by natural means (like by the SMOD).

It is like a fucking religion to these greenie environazis. But they are not truly green. Nor are they religious. If they were religious, they would understand that the planet is a gift from God for us to use, and over the centuries we have learned to be more responsible. In the meantime, the planet has healed from our past carelessness. No, they are watermelons. Green on the outside, but deep COMMIE RED on the inside, and as intelligent as the fruit itself.

Happenings at The Homestead

The fire danger in Kommiecticut (actually most of southern New England) has been anywhere from "High" to "Extreme" with RED FLAG WARNINGS for the past few weeks. I receive the daily fire danger alert from the state via email. If there is a day of rain, the danger may go to low for one day, but on the next day it goes back to "HIGH" and continues up until the next rain. There have been many fires in the region and several I have personally worked. There was a 700 acre fire in Rhode Island that looked like a fire from out west that required help from CT & MA. Our fires never get into the trees like that requiring air drops, but that one did. The next couple of photos are from one my department fought along a town hiking trail. When we got the call it was reported as 10' x 10'. I was on duty that day and got there first with our brush truck, finding an area that was now 100' x 100' with a roaring fire spreading fast. We put it out with a total of six guys and 2,000 gallons of water from two of our engines. When all was said and done it was more than an acre. Normally a dirt strip will stop it, but as you can see it went right across the hiking trail burning both sides. In the last photo, the fire was on a hilltop a few hundred feet in off the road. Smelly, dirty, and soaking wet when you are done.




















My house is surrounded by woods and for the most part has a wide WUI (wildland-urban interface) barrier except for the west side facing the road. That is a thin strip of grass and in the summer also has a thick lush green area of ferns and ground cover. However, everything is just starting to grow so the ground is still covered with dry cured fuels that burn ferociously.

Our front porch which sees lots of use in warm weather

Looking down the steep hill from the porch towards the road.

The front of the house from the driveway


As you can see, the woods are pretty close to the front of the house. All it would take is some fucktard driving by to flick a cigarette butt out the window to light off my front woods. Under normal conditions that is not an issue. Once the tree canopy shades the forest floor, the ground cover holds the moisture and prevents fire spread. Right now, the sun is shining right through and baking everything on the ground making it super flammable. Therefore, once in the morning and once in the evening, the entire area 20-30 feet from the grass line out is wet down with what we in the fire service call "The Green Line" meaning a garden hose. Doing it twice a day will allow the water to soak through enough to slow if not halt fire spread. This coming Sunday we are supposed to get significant rain, so with this area pre-wetted down, the rain should really soak through and not just run off down the hill. Luckily we have not suffered through the decades of drought like Kommiefornia and are allowed to clear and mange our forests. I have a pile of stuff to burn out back once the fire danger lessens.

In yesterday's post about my Rhodesian Ridgeback Eli's birthday, I mentioned he won a dog show. The official photo came in the mail. I cropped it out for SafeSECS to eliminate the judge and my wife's faces, but there is my Handsome Boy in a show stance.

We normally keep our dogs lean, so you can just make out their ribs. But my wife was told that judges don't care for that look, so we have upped his meal portions to bulk him up and it seemed to work this time.

Twitter Can Suck It, I'm Now On GAB

All because of YOU.... Glen Filthie! 😆

If you are so inclined to join GAB, or are already on there, find me and give me a follow. I am even more snarky, perhaps mean, and some might say hateful where I know I won't be cancelled.

My existing Twitter account and tweets will just sit there and languish in perpetuity. 

Baby Boy's Birthday

Eli (Whitney) the Rhodesian Ridgeback aka "Baby Boy" is 3 years old today. Not a puppy anymore, but he sure does love his Daddy. He is the youngest of our three dogs.

8 week old puppy version going home. He was the pick of the litter, but the breeder decided not to keep him. She was worried about his tail, but the little imperfection went away as he grew.



Another shot from June 2020 in his new home. Floppy ears and giant paws.

Now? The breeder warned us he came from breed stock that was hard driving and would need tons of exercise. HA! While he does do Agility and Scent Trials with my wife, go hiking and other outdoor activities, he is equally happy to nap.


Here he is in his favorite spot, curled up in the crook of my leg on the couch watching TV. We have a 65" flat screen and he loves to sit and watch animal shows, especially with dogs. My wife will stream the Westminster Dog Show or Agility matches and he is enthralled.

Eli is the fourth Ridgeback we have had and all were raised by us from puppies. They are great dogs. He is currently undergoing breed confirmation and his breeder is paying for everything. All we have to do is get him to the show. My wife has been doing all the handling. They did win last show which was his first. 9 more wins plus a major and he gets his AKC title.

Mommy took him to work today, and I'll bet he will get a birthday Frosty from Wendy's on the way home this evening.

No Range Time, Been Fishin' Instead

I have been out fishing twice over the past few days without getting skunked. The bass are now active. All my tackle has the barbs crimped for easy catch and release. It also makes landing them a little harder because if you don't keep tension on the line they will get away.

Saturday morning the 15th I got up at 4:30 and was at the club pond around 05:15. It was still dark and the fish must have been asleep because there was zero activity. That is, until early dawn at 06:00 when it seemed like a switch got flipped and they started jumping and biting. First I caught a Smallmouth Bass by hooking it in the side. It must have swam by my lure just right as I was reeling it in. It was hooked solid but easily unhooked and released with just a small wound. It swam away fast. Next I had two good sized fish on the line but lost them both about 12 feet from shore. It could have been the same fish for all I know. I then landed two good sized Bluegills. Not very long but they both tried to swallow my lure whole and the hook got them solidly in the lip. They fought hard enough to activate the drag which I tightened up. Bloop... back in the drink they went. The last fish of the day was a good sized Largemouth Bass. He put up a good fight and I successfully got him to shore. The hook was through his upper lip and easily removed. I took a good look at him and tossed him back. Our club pond is stocked with Trout, but I don't fish for them. IMHO they are too fragile for catch and release and since my wife won't eat game fish I don't keep anything.

I went fishing at the club pond again last night after shift. I only caught and landed a single Largemouth Bass just as it was getting dark. I was using a wiggly floating plug that had two treble hooks. The bass hit it right after the lure hit the water and tried to swallow the whole thing because he had both treble hooks stuck in his mouth. Again, crimped barbs so easily removed and it swam away as soon as it hit the water. As I started to leave, I passed the deep swamp created by a beaver dam. Holy cow... the fish were super active breaking the surface every where. I parked in a pull off and started casting from the edge of the road. I got one bite early and then nothing as it got darker. I will try fishing there instead of the pond on my next outing which will hopefully be tomorrow evening.

A word about Bluegills. They are the favorite fish for kids to catch and considered not worth anything by most fisherman. There is no bag limit and kids will fill a 5-gallon bucket full of them. When I was a teen, I used to go fishing with my neighbor in his canoe at Shenipsit Lake in the wee hours of the morning. We would actually fish for Bluegills because they were HUGE! They were big enough to fillet, so I would keep 2 or 3 of the largest ones for my lunch. I would dip the fillets in raw egg and roll them in bread crumbs, then pan fry them with some onions. YUM!

Once the weather warms up a little more I will expand my horizons by fishing some wild woodland ponds and some Army Corps of Engineers dammed up water ways from my kayak.

Fuckin' Liars!

When you spew lies to try and garner support for your position, you lose any and all credibility.

Gun violence IS NOT the leading cause of death among children.

If the media was to actually do its job, these anti-gun hoplophobes would be called out, ridiculed, and then ignored.

Sunday Morning Firefighter Breakfast

Sorry for the lateness of this post. I am on-shift alone today and have been hammered with calls since mid-morning when I started to compose it. I just got back in the office to do my reports and decided to get this post up first.


We had a steak BBQ with friends over the weekend. My wife bought some nice top sirloin steaks at The Country Butcher in Tolland. They were pretty big so I only ate half of mine, which meant the other half would become a steak-n-egg breakfast. It is after 3:30 PM EDT and I am still running on breakfast with no interest in lunch.

I slice the steak to half thickness and fry it char side up with butter. A left over baked potato got cubed up for homefries, skin and all sprinkled with garlic salt and paprika. Two fresh eggs out of my chicken coop from yesterday afternoon over medium with a slice of cheddar melted on top, and a Thomas' cinnamon raisin English muffin slathered with REAL butter. Just before I ate (after the photo), the eggs were doused with some Cholula Hot Sauce. FYI... The apple is the fruit pattern on the plate, not food.

Small Scale Farming Since 2007

I have raised chickens for eggs for almost 16 years. While we consume our share of eggs, we give eggs to family and sell the surplus to friends, neighbors, and co-workers. I will be placing an order to a regional farm supply outfit for 8 more Rhode Island Red pullets on Monday. Today, my wife had two of our three dogs at an event in New Hampshire all day, leaving our female standard poodle Lucy Petunia home with me and my father-in-law.

Her Majesty, Princess Lucy Petunia










Our dogs have a fenced in yard they access through the walkout basement. With the boys away with Mommy, Lucy could be out in the open area of the property where she stays close by. When the boys are home and all three dogs are loose they tend to run off into the woods out of sight and come back when they feel like it. Outside free separately, they come when they are called.

The dog yard is separated from the chicken yard by a 5 foot high wire fence and a gate. Once every few weeks, we let the chickens into the dog yard to go on a tick search and destroy mission. Today with the boys away, I let them have at it.

I only allow this when I am home, due to the fact that the fence surrounding the chicken yard is secure from predators, where the dog yard is not. So, as insurance against predators, this was handy near the door to the deck overlooking the dog yard.

1971 vintage Marlin 336 in .30-30


I would have a clear shot from the deck down to the yard at any critter after my birds. The magazine stays empty but the sleeve on the stock contains 9 rounds of Federal 150 gr softpoint ammo and the scope is a Bushnell Trophy zeroed at 100 yards. I can lock and load quite fast on my way out the door. The 150 gr lead pill will instantly evacuate the chest cavity of all vital organs for a fox or bobcat.

I bought the Marlin 336 second hand back when I first started raising chickens and realized I did not have a proper firearm for predator control. It cost me $265 and had the Marlin scope mount already on it. I had the Bushnell scope and mounting rings in the safe not mounted to anything. With the Federal ammo, I can shoot quarter sized groups at 100 yards. Closer and I just aim a little lower. For larger predator trouble I have some Federal 170 gr that shoots 2 inches lower at 100 yards with the same scope settings.

Environazis Can Stick It

 I drive a 2007 Toyota Tundra SR5 Doublecab pickup truck with 166,700 miles on it. It is by far the best truck I have ever owned, even with a couple of major issues. The biggest issue was a full frame replacement in 2018 that cost Toyota about $15,000 and cost me about $700. My share was for brand new Bilstein off-road shocks and struts and a new fuel injection computer. I purposely held off on the shocks and struts so as to save on labor since they had to come off for the frame replacement. The fuel injection computer lives under the bed mounted to the frame, and the original was so corroded the body of it was about to disintegrate. That part was not included in the frame replacement and if I remember right was less than $200. My truck chassis is still like new underneath. It included all new brake and fuel lines, control arms, and leaf springs.

The new truck frame with pieces for my truck being moved over

The other major problem with Tundras is the secondary air injection system. So much so that Toyota now warranties the *SAIS up to 150,000 miles. Of course mine started giving me trouble at 155,000 miles. I think that was because for the first six years I owned it I had a company truck and didn't drive the Tundra much. I had problems with both air injection switching valves throwing ECM error codes. There is one switch, an air pump, air supply tubing, and exhaust tubing for each side of the V-8 engine. The first time I replaced the valves I bought inexpensive after market ones on eBay. When those died one at a time in less than two years I bought the OEM version figuring I got Chinese junk off eBay. Nope, the OEM versions failed as well, and the last one was less than a year old. When I called Toyota to get a warranty replacement, they informed me they only warranty the parts if the entire SAIS system was serviced to the tune of about $4000. They explained failures are caused by contamination in the system, so supposedly replacing parts one at a time will eventually cause failures. The state of Kommiecticut has an emissions inspection program. Every vehicle over 4 and less than 25 years old must get an inspection every two years. It is a total sham and nothing but a way to charge a $20 fee. Trust me, I know, because before the Tundra I would tweak my vehicles to pass and then after inspection put them back to running the way I wanted them to. Initially the inspections were done just with a tailpipe sniffer probe, but now they also pressure test the gas cap,  poke a mirror underneath to visually see catalytic converters and as long as there is no lit check engine light, plug into the OBD II port and take the readings.

My problems started last summer just after my bi-annual emissions inspection. It was throwing the code for the "Bank 1" switching valve stuck closed. That would put the truck in a partial limp mode. The truck was drive-able, but super annoying. Repairing the system was never going to be an option. I had heard about an SAIS bypass kit, but when I initially looked at them they were about $400, and I didn't have the extra dough. So for the last almost full year, I carried my OBD II code reader with me every where I went. Whenever the check engine light came on, I would grab the code reader, plug it in and clear it. Only on the coldest of winter days would I possibly have to do it more than once. After clearing the codes, the truck ran absolutely fine. I recently came into some money (with much more to come) in the form of back overtime pay which I should have been receiving all along, so I finally ordered a bypass kit.

I ordered the highly recommended Gen II kit from Hewitt Technologies for $395 with free regular USPS package shipping and no sales tax. It came two days earlier than predicted.

The kit comes with a replacement control module, wiring harness, two exhaust tube block off plates, and an installation kit of hardware and zip ties. Following the enclosed detailed instructions, it took me a little over an hour to install. Problem solved!

These kits are sold for "Off Road and Competition Use Only" but believe me, the majority of these kits are purchased for the same reason I bought mine. The way the Toyota SAIS is engineered it is a moisture trap that dooms the system to eventual failure. If someone keeps their truck long enough, the system will eventually fail again. I figured since I was using my code reader to temporarily "fix" a non working system anyway, I might as well make the fix permanent. 

As an aside, I thought the Volkswagen emission software that detected emission testing and put out fantastic emission codes was brilliant. Too bad they got caught.


*SAIS -- The purpose of the SAIS is to introduce fresh air into the exhaust downstream from the engine, in order to burn the excess fuel used on a cold start. Burning the excess fuel also raises the temperature of the catalytic converters quicker. The system only operates during the first 30 seconds after a cold start and then shuts down. The SAIS is inactive for all successive starts on a warm engine. The SAIS has no effect on the operation or fuel economy, it is strictly to "reduce" emissions from the extra fuel used at a cold start. IMHO...IT IS TOTAL UNNECESSARY CRAP!!

Range Report For 4-4-23

I went to my club range after my shift on Tuesday the 4th and was pleased to see I was the only one there. I usually enjoy the camaraderie of fellow shooters at the range, but my main reason for going was to learn how to use my new shot timer. I would have to ask other shooters to hold up until I was done so their shots wouldn't interfere with mine. I'm sure it wouldn't have been a problem but alone was definitely better.

First, I wanted to make sure the ammo I was using for this exercise functioned OK in my Browning Buckmark. It was about 1/3 of a 1 pint milk type container of some old Remington Yellow Jacket that my Dad had. They functioned perfectly, so that was what I was going to use for my timer work. This was the first time I would be shooting while wearing my new Walker electronic muffs. They worked great for protecting my hearing. But it was weird to hear only the echo of the shot off the woods and hills and not the shot. Throwing .22LR's against steel plates didn't make enough noise for me to hear, but I could see I hit the plates. It will be interesting to ring steel when I move up to larger calibers on another outing.

I had already put in a fresh 9V Eveready Energizer and set the time and date. The clock will run down the battery so I will keep it out when not in use. All the settings and shot data stays in memory, only the clock will need to be reset. The default mode is to simply measure shot strings; from buzzer to first shot, and times between successive shots. I had it set for a random start between 1.5 and 9.0 seconds. I first loaded the gun with 3 rounds, hit the "START" button, and held at the low ready. At the beep (which I heard clearly through my Walker muffs) I raised the gun, acquired the target, and shot all 3 rounds. When I looked at the timer, it said 4 shots with about 10 seconds to the last shot, That's strange, I wonder what it heard to think it was another shot. A couple more tries and I had it figured it out. I had the timer clipped to my belt, and when I pulled it off the clip snapped against the body of the timer. I need to hit a button to stop the string. That was not detailed in the instructions which after reading right after I got the timer, I thought needed greater detail. I then did a few 10 shot strings and stopped the timer after 10 and had good readings. Now it's time to try setting some par times.

Not having any standard drills in mind to try, I made one up. 10 shots on target in less than 15 seconds at 7 yards. Now I was going to have a start and stop beep. Interesting thing I didn't know, the timer continues recording shots and time after the stop beep. What I thought was a stop beep just tells you you're at the par time and missed making time if you still need to shoot. At 7 yards, putting all 10 rounds in the 10 ring and a couple in the bullseye weren't too difficult, but doing it for time was new to me. I again started from the low ready position and was under time each string. What got better were my groups each time I tried it. I was satisfied I could use the timer for training without too much fumbling around and put it away. I then proceeded to shoot the rest of my ammo by smacking the hanging steel plates at 25 yards, as well as some free standing small diameter plates to set up and knock down. The largest of these plates was 6 inches, there were two 4 inch plates and a 3 inch plate. There is a silhouette target with a 2 inch swing-out plate in the center of the chest, and a hanging 2 inch plate. I did this several times effortlessly until I was out of ammo. The Buckmark is an accurate pistol for sure.

The last thing I did was try out my new Sig-Sauer Kilo Rangefinder. It turns out the 25, 50, 75, 100, 150, and 200 yard backstops are all a little short. The 200 yard measured 194.7 yards by laser. No big deal, just interesting. I had the connection up between the range finder and the Sig BDX app on my phone, which shows the readings on the range finder on my phone. The ballistics calculator is not as accurate as the Ballistics Buddy app which is right on with my dope card for my rifle, but also has a lot more parameters to set than the range finder. I will just use it for range and up/down angle, and let the Ballistics Buddy app give me elevation and windage.

A Planned Evening At The Range

I finally got around to buying a shot timer I have been wanting since last fall. While I am confident in my marksmanship skills, I had no way to increase my speed while maintaining my proficiency and accuracy. I did try a shot timer app on my phone but it totally sucked. Too hard to adjust the sound input, too hard to use, feature poor, and the start beep volume was too low. I purchased the Competition Electronics ProTimer Shot Timer from MidwayUSA.com for $154.99

I also sprung for the protective soft-sided carrying case for another $12.99

In order to maximize my shooting practice instead of fucking around trying to learn how to use the timer, I plan on heading to my range after shift on Tuesday evening. I will be shooting my Browning Buckmark URX in .22LR so as not to expend my precious handloaded target ammo. I will have plenty of time to learn how make the timer do what I need it to do. Right now, I have no idea what my draw to first shot time is, or the timing of my follow up shots. Going forward, I will be able to do some timed drills that require X number of shots in X amount of time on target. I will do a follow up post as a review of the timer some time this week.
