A New Browser
There's another browser around that we've never tried before. It's called IE Opera. Well, it WAS called IE Opera. To avoid conflicts with Opera, its name was changed to Gorilla. And perhaps by the time you receive this tip, its name will have changed again. BUT...

Gorilla (formerly IE Opera) offers a multiple document interface (MDI) and offers built-in Google searching, privacy options, and ease of use.

IE Opera is very similar to Microsoft Internet Explorer and is fully compatible with the Microsoft browser.

Gorilla (formerly IE Opera) is freeware and you can download a copy at the IEOpera site.

December Twenty-Fifth: The Joy of Christmas Past
Phillip V. Snyder

"Let's have a good old fashioned Christmas this year" is the wistful refrain so often heard as the holiday season approaches. But just what is an old-fashioned Christmas? Surprisingly few people know. One who does and who knows, as well, all the stories behind our popular Christmas customs, is the author of this book. December 25th is his nostalgic, loving portrait of Christmases past and of the transformation of an ancient and still beloved religious festival into America's favorite holiday.

Christmas trees, Christmas stockings and decorations, Christmas shopping, gifts, and cards, carols, Yuletide food and drink - all our cherished traditions were largely unknown before the 1850's. The Christmas we celebrate today is mainly a creation of the Victorian period, and it is this period that December 25th recreates. It is full of fascinating and little-known facts and details and is a unique social history of Christmas in America.

Buy Today...Great Reading!! Rocky Mountain Christmas: Yuletide Stories of the West
by John H. Monnett
By evening everyone present agreed that the Christmas festivities were "the greatest known to that date" in the entire Taos region and Kit Carson was "chief over it all." For the first time in recent memory, different races and Indian tribes had "ate, drank and smoked together." The last toast of the evening was one pledging "fraternal peace" among the races in the Taos Valley. (From the book) Even under the most extreme conditions our pioneer ancestors kept the festive holiday spirit alive in their hearts and frontier homes. From Lewis and Clark's first Christmas in the Rockies to the generous gift that changed a widow's and her children's lives, this book shares celebrations of the Yuletide season.
[From The Editors Desk]...
Man do you believe all this bullshit!? These two creeps were identified by the witness of his murdered wife, and the cops blew him off! Do you know how many innocent lives could have been saved if these dumb ass southern cops had taken the time to at least investigate the witnesses claims? Noooooooo, they're to damned cocky, they know it all!! How many times have I said it and it's the truth......"when have ya ever seen the cops get to a murder or robbery before it happened?" "Not to damned many times.....they always get there after the fact!" Washington D.C. has the toughest gun laws in the Country.......and the highest crime rate! These asshole politicians and YUPPIES against Guns know that criminals don't obey gun laws. Ask them......"HOW ARE YOU GOING TO TAKE GUNS FROM THE CRIMINALS?" "HOW ARE YOU GOING TO STOP CRIMINALS FROM GETTING GUNS?" Hell, they'll lie to ya, because they know the only ones, who they are going to take away the guns from, are YOU, the law abiding citizen. They're gonna leave YOU unarmed so the criminals can have a free for all with you and your family!
People, you better wake up before YOU are the ones behind bars, while the criminals run rampant! Just keep voting for the likes of Bill Clinton, Hilarious Clinton, Tom Strickland and the rest of those powerful politicians who want to ban guns from YOU, not the criminals!

America~A Bygone Era: The Mountain Men
Yellowstone Kelly
Born Luther W. Kelly on July 27, 1849 In New York, “Yellowstone” Kelly earned his name scouting for the Army on the Yellowstone River in the 1870’ sand 1880’s. Kelly served in the Civil War, then finishe d his enlistment in the west where he discovered the unequaled beauty and bounty of the Yellowstone River Valley. He spent years there hunting and trapping and guiding government expeditions throughout the area beginning in 1873 as head scout on a fact-finding mission for George Forsyth.

From 1876 to 1878 he served as Chief of Scouts for Nelson Miles at Wolf Mountain and the Tongue River battles. He took part in the military chase of the Nez Perce at Cow Island and the Bear Paw Mountains.

It is said that he carried a long breech loading Springfield rifle covered from muzzle to stock with the skin of a huge bull snake and was as likely to quote Shakespeare as skin a beaver.

Kelly later guided two expeditions into Alaska, served as the Captain of Volunteers in the Philippines then accepted a post as agent of the San Carlos Indian Reservation.

Yellowstone Kelly finally retired in California where he died on Dec. 17, 1928. At his request he was buried at the summit of Kelly Mountain in Billings Montana overlooking the land he scouted and loved.

Nelson Miles once said of the man, “Yellowstone Kelly was of a good family, well educated and fond of good books, as quite and gentle as he was brave, as kind and generous as he was forceful, a great hunter and an expert rifleman; he explored that extensive northwest country years before serious hostilities occurred and acquired a knowledge of its topography, climate and resources that was extremely valuable.”

Subject: Two hunters from Michigan--(by the way, this is a true story)

A guy buys a brand new Lincoln Navigator for $42,500 and has $560 monthly payments. He and a friend go duck hunting in winter, and of course all the lakes are frozen. These two guys go out on the lake with the guns, the dog, and of course the new vehicle. They drive out onto the lake ice and get ready. Now, they want to make some kind of a natural landing area for the ducks, something for the decoys to float on. In order to make a hole large enough to look like something a wandering duck would fly down and land on, it is going to take a little more effort than an ice hole drill.

So, out of the back of the new Navigator comes a stick of dynamite with a short, 40- second fuse. Now these two Rocket Scientists do take into consideration that they want to place the stick of dynamite on the ice at a location far from where they are standing (and the new Navigator), because they don't want to take the risk of slipping on the ice when they run from the burning fuse and possibly go up in smoke with the resulting blast.

They light the 40-second fuse and throw the dynamite. Remember a couple of paragraphs back when I mentioned the vehicle, the guns and the dog? Let's talk about the dog: A highly trained Black Lab used for RETRIEVING. Especially things thrown by the owner.

You guessed it, the dog takes off at a high rate of doggy speed on the ice and captures the stick of dynamite with the burning 40-second fuse about the time it hits the ice. The two men yell, scream, wave their arms and wonder what to do now. The dog, cheered on, keeps coming. One of the guys grabs the shotgun and shoots the dog. The shotgun is loaded with # 8 bird shot, hardly big enough to stop a Black Lab. The dog stops for a moment, slightly confused, but continues on. Another shot and this time the dog, still standing, becomes really confused and of course terrified, thinking these two geniuses have gone insane. The dog takes off to find cover, under the brand new Navigator. ----BOOM!---- Dog and Navigator are blown to bits and sink to the bottom of the lake in a very large hole, leaving the two idiots standing there with this "I can't believe this happened" look on their faces. The insurance company says that sinking a vehicle in a lake by illegal use of explosives is not covered. He still had yet to make the first of those $560 a month payments! And you thought you thought you were having a bad hair day?

Good Humor Man....This is not only philosophical but is obviously pure science....
A herd of buffalo can move only as fast as the slowest buffalo, and when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first.

This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular culling of the weakest members.

In much the same way the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first.

In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. So that's why you always feel smarter after a few beers!

Zelle Ranch, Colorado.....
Saturday, Nov.2, 2002.....
Well folks, it started out to be a great hunt. 5000 acres of beautiful woodland scenery. Saw lots of turkey, rabbit and squirrels. However, elk were not to be the prevalent game of the hunt. Unfortunately, south central Colorado, mainly Las Animas and Huerfano counties, have been poached so badly by the locals of the years, the game is scarce! When you do find deer and elk, they are extremely few in numbers and smaller by far than theur counterparts up in Nortwest Colorado. We walked and hunted the area, along with another group of 6 hunters, for six days. Only one elk was spotted and taken, 5 bucks and 7 does were seen and caught on film(no deer hunting on Zele Ranch allowed). Most of the other groups left the ranch and headed home early, commenting that they would not waste their time again in southern Colorado.

Well, we already figured out where we will hunt next year. Folks, if ya want to see alot of elk and deer, southwestern, western and northwestern Colorado are your best bet. Hunting up in the Rifle, Craig, Meeker, Hayden, Steamboat Springs, Walden, Kremling areas of Colorado were above average. In Las Animas and Huerfano Counties, which include Trinidad and Walsenburg, Colorado, game was scarce to none. Folks, don't waste your money on these to counties for hunting.......they really are pitiful!

Oh well, me and the boys still had fun calling in turkeys and next year we'll be hunting in the area of Craig, Co.

El Camino Del Diablo
Sonora, Mexico to Yuma, Arizona

El Camino del Diablo, the Highway of the Devil, once a 250-mile link between the northwestern frontier of Mexico and the colonies of California, began at Caborca, in Mexico’s state of Sonora. It extended north northwest across the desert to what is today the United States/Mexican border. It turned west northwest and followed the border through a phantasmagoric landscape of organ pipe cactus, desert flats, drifting sand dunes, ancient lava flows and searing summer heat, passing through the southern edges of Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge, and the Barry M. Goldwater Air Force Range. Marked by graves and headstones, it reached a merciful end at Yuma, Arizona.

Outdoor Tip: Series on High Altitudes
Prevention of Altitude Illnesses

Prevention of altitude illnesses falls into two categories, proper acclimatization and preventive medications. Below are a few basic guidelines for proper acclimatization.

  • If possible, don't fly or drive to high altitude. Start below 10,000 feet (3,048 meters) and walk up.
  • If you do fly or drive, do not over-exert yourself or move higher for the first 24 hours.
  • If you go above 10,000 feet (3,048 meters), only increase your altitude by 1,000 feet (305 meters) per day and for every 3,000 feet (915 meters) of elevation gained, take a rest day.
  • "Climb High and sleep low." This is the maxim used by climbers. You can climb more than 1,000 feet (305 meters) in a day as long as you come back down and sleep at a lower altitude.
  • If you begin to show symptoms of moderate altitude illness, don't go higher until symptoms decrease ("Don't go up until symptoms go down").
  • If symptoms increase, go down, down, down!
  • Keep in mind that different people will acclimatize at different rates. Make sure all of your party is properly acclimatized before going higher.
  • Stay properly hydrated. Acclimatization is often accompanied by fluid loss, so you need to drink lots of fluids to remain properly hydrated (at least 3-4 quarts per day). Urine output should be copious and clear.
  • Take it easy; don't over-exert yourself when you first get up to altitude. Light activity during the day is better than sleeping because respiration decreases during sleep, exacerbating the symptoms.
  • Avoid tobacco and alcohol and other depressant drugs including, barbiturates, tranquilizers, and sleeping pills. These depressants further decrease the respiratory drive during sleep resulting in a worsening of the symptoms.
  • Eat a high carbohydrate diet (more than 70% of your calories from carbohydrates) while at altitude.
  • The acclimatization process is inhibited by dehydration, over-exertion, and alcohol and other depressant drugs.

How to defeat the plot of the Illuminati: Part 3

A Luciferian conspiracy

To do one's part

Back in 1970, Louis Even wrote, in an article entitled "Social Credit, yes - Party, no", that all the governments were led by the Financiers, and that changing the party in office would change absolutely nothing to this fact. But Mr. Even also hastened to mention the example of David who overcame, with his sling, Goliath the Giant:

«Quite a lesson is being taught to us here. The Social Crediters of the "Michael" Journal are often reminded of that lesson, and the endeavor to take it into account. Only a celestial power can triumph over the most powerful terrestrial powers. Heaven wants us to do our part, and do it the best we can, just the same, but we must not rely on our action only. Young David did not say: "I will do nothing! What would be the use of facing a powerful warrior who laughs at my weakness? " No, he did his little part. Hi used the weapons he had - a staff, a sling and five stones - and God did the rest, the bigger part.

«The Social Crediters of the "Michael" Journal do not stop, even despite their own weakness, in front of an enemy power that is humanly invincible, despite years that succeed each other without noticeable successes, despite mockery, criticisms, or betrayals. They know that every step made for a just cause, every testimony borne to a truth, every ray of hope communicated to demoralized people, every elevation of a soul, or every conversion brought about by their example and by the message they carry, is a benefit. Only the Angels know all the good this message, these prayers and examples, have done. If the apostles realize this, they can be delighted about it, but they must also give thanks to God for it. If they ignore all the good they have done, if they do not see the seed that they have sown grow, they continue just the same to sow, to plow, to work hard, in the inner joy of unselfishness, in the sole search for the glory of God and the well-being of their brethren.»

U.S. crime rate rises for 1st time in 10 years: FBI

.c Kyodo News Service

WASHINGTON, Oct. 28 (Kyodo) - Murders, rapes and other violent crimes in the United States rose in 2001 for the first time in 10 years, according to a U.S. government report published Monday.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) said the murder rate in 2001 rose 2.5% over the previous year, to 15,980 cases, excluding 3,047 people killed in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

More than half of murder victims -- 8,719 people -- were killed by guns, the report said.
(Note From editor of MountainGnome: Over 40,000 people were killed by or in automobiles!! You tell me, should we now ban cars ?! I say YES, they kill more people than guns!! People get your heads out of your ass and start defeating organizations and politicians who advocate more gun laws and bans on guns!!)

Although it was the first year-to-year increase in a decade, the number of murder incidents is still below the 1997 figures by about 12%, the FBI said.

The FBI measured four types of violent crime (murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault) and three property crimes (burglary, larceny and motor-vehicle theft). Aggravated assault is excluded from the report.

In 2001, the number of violent crimes rose 2.1% from the previous year to 11,849,006, or one in every 2.7 seconds.

Only 19.6% of the crimes led to arrests or prosecution, the report said.

The level of hate crimes in 2001 was about the same as the previous year, at 11,987 cases.

Among the cases in which offenders' race are known, whites surpassed other ethnic groups, reported in 6,049 cases of hate crimes. Blacks came in second place, reported in 1,882 cases.

Rape assaults on women went down by 0.3%, slightly less than the previous year, the report said. Although a total of 90,491 rapes were reported in 2001, one in every 5 minutes and 48 seconds, the report said.

GUYS: Trail Running: In A Group:
Run or hike with a partner or group. Not only will you find the run more enjoyable, you will be less likely to get lost if you have two or more people running the same trail.

Speak up. If you go alone, give someone a general idea of where you are going and when you intend to get back. Due to the remoteness and terrain, the possibility of danger and injury increases with trail hiking and running. Letting someone know where you will be will help them locate you if something does go wrong and you don't turn up. (Oh yeah, if you do get lost just running on a trail, we're gonna have to figure that you're some kind of a dumb ass YUPPIE!!)
NOTE: Always Check with and follow the advice of your Physician!

Fear not, however, as the solutions are simple. Make a cold compress of cotton pads soaked in green tea, or even just ice water. If your face is puffy, try a washcloth soaked in green tea or water. Drink plenty of water to re-hydrate yourself. Also on the market are cooling eyes gels and compresses for puffy-eyed mornings.

If you're already drinking a large amount of water, check for other symptoms that might indicate the presence of diabetes. Check out the info at Diabetes and Symptoms.
NOTE: Always Check with and follow the advice of your Physician!

TIP: Lumpy Gravy
Lumpy gravy can be rescued! The usual cause is improper combining of roux (a mixture of flour and fat used to thicken) and a liquid. Simply strain the gravy through a fine mesh strainer or colander. Discard any lumps and continue to simmer the gravy until the desired thickness.
