This week I am back together with my Hoser counterpart in Prepping in the Great White North of Canada, Irv Mills.  This is the firrst of 3 vids, this one on Pickling.  The topics covered in the other 2 vids will remain a clsely guarded secret until I actually publish them for the following 2 Collapse Cafe Sunday Brunch Specials. 🙂  A little Mystery & Anticipation always makes opening the Present more fun!

Actually, the three vids were all recorded in one looonnng session, but I know most viewers of Prep Vids don't have a long enough attention span, so I cut the vid into 3 reasonable size chunks.  It also divided up quite nicely into 3 separate topics.

In this first vid, Irv explains the process first of grwoing the cucmbers, then the processing of those Cukes into Pickles.  It's quite a complete tutorial on Pickle Making from the very beginning of the process of grwoing the cukes out of the ground to […] Continue Reading…

There are days when rolling your own blog is worth doing and today is a day like that. Last week also had a day like that when I hosted my own video (extracted from a tweet I was shown) and sidestepped You Tube censors. That felt good, very good. If I did not have my own blog as a place to post my heart would have felt chilled. I'd be unable to express myself. No options. I would have been silenced and I know what being silenced feels like. The humiliation of being silenced without options is hard to take. I have been silenced before which is how I became aware of special attention for the first time.

how many of us were getting the kind of special attention I was getting when he absquatulated. He would know.

It's been a Bloody Week in the World of Collapse, and inside the Diner as well.  Never a dull moment inside the Diner, but this was an exceptionally strife ridden week.  Things have calmed down now some though, since the 2 Diners causing the most havoc and making life unpleasant for everyone have decided to go Walkabout.  These 2 guys are like the 2 guys from the original Star Trek series episode "The Alternative Factor".  It's the same guy, but they come from different Universes, one made mostly of Matter, the other mostly of Anti-Matter.  If they ever come in direct contact with each other, both Universes are instantly annihiliated.

They came as close as we have ever been to the annihiliation of the Diner Forum, but thankfully we survived it. 🙂  Together they did a better job of Nuking the Forum than all our worst Trolls of the past, known colloquially on the Diner ast Moriarty, Watson & F-Bomb.  Somewhat amazing to me that 2 […] Continue Reading…

The Grand Reopening has turned into an Epic Failure, although not according to the Imbecile in Chief who gets on the Tube and spits out on bald faced lie after lie.  Basically he believes if he says it, that makes it true.  Fortunately I think this approach is losing its effectiveness even with his "base"  Coronavirus isn't a political problem, it's a health problem and you can't sweep100,000 Dead People under the rug.  They need to be buried, by the truckload.  Bring out the Caterpillar Back Hoe for digging the mass graves.

The biggest of the many COVID issues to lately become the hot potato pollitical football is the Education issue and the reopening of the Public Skules in the fall.  The normal reopening date is around a month away, and Trumpovetsky wants a full reopening, everywhere because in his warped mind, Amerika has won the battle against Coronavirus.  This is of course preposterous as cases spike up in many states even without reopened schools.  It's […] Continue Reading…

New Bamboo
2020

Most of the writing I have done for this blog assumes that my readers are at the very least open to thinking about the collapse of our civilization, and more likely that they have already accepted it as probable and are interested in discussing the details of how it might happen and how to cope with it. But it is pretty clear to me that the general public, even in the midst of a global pandemic, are not ready to entertain the idea that civilization could collapse. If I bring up the idea, the response is most likely to be, "Collapse, you say? Surely not."

There are a number of reasons for that attitude, the simplest being a cognitive bias against change—the feeling that tomorrow is likely to be pretty much like today. This is aided and abetted by a lot of propaganda about how great BAU (Business as Usual) really is and the progress it promises for the future. Indeed, we are told that there simply isn't any better […] Continue Reading…

Anyhow, it's a short one so I won't bother with writing a synopsis.  If you watch it, great.  If not, you missed out.  It's pretty funny, IMHO. 🙂

“Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;
For though from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar.”

 ― Alfred, Lord Tennyson  

"Crossing the bar" is a nautical metaphor Tennyson uses to compare death with crossing the "sandbar" between the river of life and the ocean beyond (death), the "boundless deep", to which we return. My friend Joe has crossed the bar.

When you retire, lunch is one of the few ways an old man has any chance for a social life. Thus it was with a small circle of my local friends. Every 4 to 6 weeks, several of us would gather for a "geezers' lunch." My friend Joe would generally facilitate the gathering, making the phone calls and wrangling the troops. He was the straw that stirred the drink. 

We geriatrics would toddle into some local pissoir for seafood, a couple of beers and some spirited conversation. Attendance would vary, but centered around four people: Al, a writer, poet and local gadfly, and publisher […] Continue Reading…

This is an unplanned discussion that came after we finished recording our main topic for discussion, but since this question of whether we are experiencing a 2nd Wave of Coronavirus came up during the day yesterday Inside the Diner, I clipped it off the video to post today for discussion.

In the MSM you're hearing the term "2nd Wave" being used to characterize the spike in COVID-19 cases in many states around the country that have begun opening their economies back up and relaxing rules on social distancing. Is this REALLY a 2nd Wave yet?

You go through life immersed in a common culture and you gain a common understanding of things. Russia kicked Germany's ass in WWII. Germany would have lost the war even without American Help. Yet the land I grew up in was an America which took full credit for the entire operation.

Later in life if you are a certain kind of person you learn the truth that what everybody thinks to be true of some things are often myths. Sometimes outright lies but if you are able to maintain balance and accept uncomfortable truths; reality can reveal its truths to you.

If you are another kind of person you cultivate a wall of ignorance which keeps you safe. Truths which challenge the comfortable environment you are familiar with you reject. Sometime with the same kind of skill which put man on the moon.

There is a certain logic in the way the universe works and so it is not surprising that the same models can describe phenomena that seem to be completely different. Here, I'll show you how the same equations describe chain reactions that govern such different phenomena as the spread of an epidemic, the cycle of extraction of crude oil, and even the nuclear reaction that creates atomic explosions. All these phenomena depend on the efficiency of energy transfer, the parameter that's known in energy studies as EROI (energy return on energy invested), related to the "transmission factor" (R) of epidemiological models. Above, a classic clip from Walt Disney's 1957 movie, "Our friend, the atom." 

 

You may be surprised to discover that epidemiological models share the same basic core of peak oil models. And it is not just about peak oil, the same models are used to describe chemical reactions, resource depletion, the fishing industry, the diffusion of memes on the Web, and even the nuclear chain reaction that leads to […] Continue Reading…

“Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.”
-Martin Luther King, Jr.

My family tree is replete with police and firemen. My great uncle was a cop. My cousins are cops. Likewise my wife's family is full of police and firemen. I suspect it's that way for most\ people; police work is so ubiquitous that most working class families have cops dangling somewhere from the family tree. So I bring to a discussion of police and police work no agenda other than that of a taxpayer, a citizen, and a pasty white man comfortable enough to be concerned for social justice, at least before cocktail time.

So it's with sadness that I beheld the events of the week and conclude that police departments in this country need a giant enema. What happened to George Floyd was bad enough; what happened to an 75-year man in Buffalo is quite another.

Video of two Buffalo, New York police officers pushing an elderly man to the ground quickly went viral late Thursday night, drawing widespread criticism. The mayor of Buffalo, Byron W. Brown, tweeted a statement […] Continue Reading…

I am writing this in late March of 2020 and it seems that hardly anyone else is writing anything that doesn't focus on the COVID-19 pandemic. A few posts back I said that shortages of electrical power, diesel fuel and money will be at the heart of the troubles that lie ahead for small remote communities as collapse progresses. I am interested in that sort of community because that is where I am recommending that you take refuge in order to ride out collapse, and where I have already taken refuge myself. I've covered electrical power and diesel fuel, and in my last post I covered the sort of money shortages that occur when you have money on deposit at the bank, or credit prearranged with them, but can't access it due to problems with the banking system.

Today, tempting as it is to talk at length about the pandemic, I'll be talking about […] Continue Reading…

I'm old enough to remember when White America was outraged– OUTRAGED, I say– when H. Rap Brown offered America the simple truth that "Violence is an American as cherry pie" in July of 1967 at a press conference in Washington, D.C. That was long before the Chicago police and the FBI murdered a sleeping Fred Hampton in December of 1969.

I'm old enough to remember WMD. Remember those?  "Yellowcake," the excuse for a Republican administration lying us into the wrong war, with Fox News and Hate Radio accusing those opposed of treason.

     In this week's Collapse Cafe, I got together again with Irv Mills to dicuss another favorite topic among Kollapsniks, FOOD!  This topic becomes especially important during the Coronavirus Pandemic since it gave the general population a taste of what the disruption of JIT shipping can do their food supply, which many people grow up believing grows on the grocery store shelves each night after closing.  lol.  Irv is the Coordinator of his local Community Garden in Kincardine, Ontario and grew up on a rural family owned farm a bit inland from where he lives now on the shores of the Great Lake they call Huron.

The conversation ranges from the Garden and the Coronavirus Pandemic to Food Distribution, Commercial Monoculture Agriculture & Permaculture farming, where Irv has a few differences with a segment of the Permaculture community.

Hope you enjoy this discussion, since there is much more on the Food topic to come from Irv & me.  He's as obsessed with […] Continue Reading…

We are taking a break this week on the Collapse Cafe to NOT talk about COVID-19 as the main topic of conversation, althought it does of course work it's way into this discussion.  It's almost impossible nowadays to talk anbout ANYTHING without Coronavirus working its way into the conversation.

However, in this one I talk with Irvine Mills, a long time contributor to the Diner Blog, who also runs his own blog, The Easiest Person to Fool.  .  Irv is a recently retired Electrician for Ontario Hydro, the Electric Power Authority in Ontario Canada.  His career spanned 31 years as he moved up the ranks from Trainee to Foreman and finally Manager for his district.  He lives nearby one of the Nuke Plants he was responsible for in Kincardine, on the shore of the Great Lake they call Huron.  Not Gitchee Gumee (Lake Superior), that's to the north.  lol.
