Evergreen Lake Barrel Drop

So today, when I got to the lake, I saw that the barrel had dropped. I went onto their website and reported it. They sent Jimmy out to confirm it. Now, they work with Evergreen Fire and Rescue to recover the barrel, and look at the time on the digital watch inside of the barrel to determine when it fell through.

The muskrat (Ondatra zibethicus) is a medium-sized semi-aquatic rodent native to North America. Here, they're sitting in the sun, on a shelf of ice in Evergreen Lake, eating mats of algae.

Why does my %appdata%\Local\Temp folder have over 15GB in it? If this data is disposable, why hasn't Windows told me?



Deleting 114,000 487 Meg.

Looks like I got that cleaned up, anyway. I now have 20.7 gig free of 74.5 gig on the C:\ drive. Lord.

No Snow in the Driveway?

I want to point out that there was snow in my driveway from November - April 1st.

This is not normal for us. Usually, we might get some snow in the fall, or in November/December, but it always warns up enough to melt off. Then, we get our big snows in the Spring (Feb March April), But this year was different in that it never really warmed up enough to melt the snow and it snowed on and off all winter long.

All through the winter, it would often take me multiple passes to try to get the BMW up the driveway.

FInally, it warmed up enough at the end of March to melt the snows of winter/spring.

Now, we get snow today/tomorrow (April 2-3). Hopefully it won't stick around too long. Normally, I'd be riding my motorcycle down into the Baja right about now, but apparently they're stopping people from entering Mexico (something I've never seen before in my life and I've been down there so many times I couldn't tell you).

Logitech K400r Wireless Keyboard

So, for some reason, the touchpad on my Logitech K400r Wireless Keyboard no longer acts like a mouse-click. Not clear why this is.

What version of Windows am I running?

How to check which version of Windows you're running

  • Click the Start button.
  • Type "winver" in the search box and press Enter.
  • You should see the About Windows box with your Windows version information.
  • Click the Start button.
  • Click the Settings icon (which looks like a gear and is above the power icon).
  • Click "System."

So, the version of Windows I'm running is:
Windows 7 Professional Version 6.1

I'm thinking I need to reinstall the drivers for the Logitech K400r Wireless Keyboard.


Apparently, there's a Firmware Update Tool:

The Firmware Update Tool, allows you to update your Logitech wireless receivers and select keyboards to the latest firmware.

Software Version: 1.2.169
Last Update: 2019-08-20
OS: Windows 7,Windows 8,Windows 10
File Size: 13.3 MB

So, let's install the Firmware Update Tool.
You have chosen to open: FirmwareUpdateTool_1.2.169_x86.exe
Would you like to save this file?
Save File.

Now, I run the update tool.

OK. It says it was successfully installed and updated. Fair enough.

Now, it's working like it's supposed to. Woohoo!!!

Libiots Sew Fear Before Trump's Inevitable Reelection

Not really clear who came up with this plan, but the Dimorats have gone all in on the Chinese Flu. It's really all they have. It's their only chance to get some babbling, senile pedophile like Joe "Corn Pop" Biden elected president.

So, that's their goal. To scare the bejeezus out of the voting population of the USA and make Trump look incompetent. It's all they have really. So they're all in.

First, they try to make Trump look racist for calling it the Chinese Flu.

Never mind the fact that we had the Spanish Flu in 1918, and somehow that wasn't racist.

Odd that the racists at the WSJ called it the Chinese Flu also. Racist pigs!

According to the CDC, 80,000 people died of the flu in the USA in the winter of 2017-2018, and no one batted an eye. How is that?

And here's the best part: There's a cure. There's already a cure for the Wuhan Flu, the China Flu, the Corona Virus...call it what you will. There's a cure. And you can imagine how the libs feel about that. They're losing their freaking minds, and lying to say it doesn't exist. Sad, but true.

The drug is called Chloroquine. It has been in use since 1934.

"Chloroquine was discovered in 1934 by Hans Andersag.[5][6] It is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines, the safest and most effective medicines needed in a health system.[7] It is available as a generic medication.[1] The wholesale cost in the developing world is about US$0.04.[8] In the United States, it costs about US$5.30 per dose.[1]"


"Some doctors report very encouraging results quickly in very sick people," Dr. Jane Orient, executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, told Breitbart News about research into chloroquine to treat the COVID-19 - also known as SARS-CoV-2 - respiratory illness.

Additionally, The Imperial College Study That's Formed the Basis of So Much Panic Just Got Revised Down Significantly

"...the leading researcher on that study has revised his numbers to show dramatic drops in his estimates of deaths and the number of ICU beds needed to tackle the crisis. This comes after he(Neil Ferguson) had previously shown up to 2 million dead in the United States and 500,000 dead in the United Kingdom." 500,000 UK deaths was revised down to "unlikely to exceed 20,000".

I haven't seen his revised number for deaths in USA, but this same idiot is in the hospital with the Corona Virus and guess what? He's doing fine and not expected to die from it.

In 2017, almost 1.6 million people died from diarrhea.

So, there you have it libtards. In summary:

1) The "China Flu" isn't racist. If the "Spanish Flu" isn't racist, then the "China Flu" isn't racist either.

2) The "Corona Virus" has a safe, proven, effective cure. Doctors have already demonstrated that Chloroquine is an effective cure for the China Flu, and the drug has been in use for nearly a century.

3) 80,000 people died of the flu in the winter of 2017-2018 and you didn't say "boo". And, if the CDC says 80,000 people in the USA died of the flu in the winter of 2017-2018, why weren't the libiots beating the drum then? What changed?

4) The guy that generated all of the panic in the UK with his predictions of massive deaths in the UK and USA was dead wrong, has the disease, is in the hospital, and is doing fine.
