TREASURES OF READING
Folks, here are some great books to read, while sitting by that warm fire in the evening........
Christmas on the American Frontier, 1800-1900:
by John E. Baur
Reprint of a 1961 work published by Caldwell Printers (Idaho). Begins with the
transplantation of the European Christmas to America, and gives a taste of
traditions and conditions of pioneers celebrating the holiday, with extracts
of quotes and anecdotes from their journals. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
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.

To Be or Not To Be....VEGETARIAN
Now, I don't have anything against
vegetarians....some of my best friends are vegetarians....heh, heh, heh. However, when they start imposing
their will on those of us who think differently.....well, hell, fire and brimstone start breaking loose!
Hey folks, here's a doooooooozie of an organization!! Next time a vegetarian starts
some bullshit with ya, just look at the jacket, shoes, wallet, purse or other articles in the
home.......GUESS WHAT?? You'll find leather somewhere there!! What hypocrites, eh?!
Why don't you people actually get a life and really do something useful for this world!
You want to be a vegetarian! Fine, go graze with the cows! God put animals on this
earth to eat........oh yeah, ya probably don't believe in a deity. Don't try to force your
will on other people, or it will someday backfire on you! You have no concept on the
management of wildlife. If wildlife was not managed by the sportsmen of this country,
animals would be extremely inbred, do to the fact that they have no conscience, don't
think as humans (well most humans....you folks can't seem to get it together either)!
Inbreeding leads to smaller, and sicker animals due to disease. But you already should
know that(yeah right!). Just another bunch of flaky cabbages with no purpose or direction in life.
It's ironic that PETA doesn't have a readily available E-MAIL address on their home page!!
WHAT?! AFRAID OF CRITICISM?! DON'T WANT NEGATIVE FEEDBACK?!
DON"T WANT OTHERS TO SHARE THEIR BELIEFS?! CAN"T HANDLE THE HEAT?!
ONLY WANT TO FORCE YOUR OPINIONS, AND DROWN OUT
THOSE OF OTHERS?! COME ON, DARE YA TO SET UP A FEEDBACK OR DIRECT E-MAIL
ON YOUR HOMEPAGE!! CHICKEN?! Opps, sorry.....that's a sore subject........AYE!??
You folks are hilarious, what a joke! All the starving people and children in this world and
YOUR cause is to protect the rights of chickens! Well, got to go get me a TURKEY SANDWICH......MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!
I believe The MountainGnome will set up a poll about PETA!!

America~A Bygone Era: History: Vigalantes or Lawmen
The Bald Knobbers
Vigilantes of the Missouri Ozarks
1885 - 1892
This page is a compilation of information about the Infamous vigilante organization know as the "Bald Knobbers".
Whether a Bald Knobber, Anti-Bald Knobber, Republican, Democrat, Union, or Confederate, it is a period in Ozark
history that must be remembered. From the first hangings of Frank and Tubal Taylor. To the gruesome hangings of
John Mathews, Bull Creek Dave, and William (Billy) Walker. With the final conclusion of the lynching of John Wesley
Bright. The Bald Knobbers, created hope, freedom, despair, and uncertainty among the people of the Ozarks.
How it started:
Prior to statehood, migrating families crossed the Mississippi River to settle in the western territories.
When Missouri entered the Union as a Slave state in 1821, slave-owning southerners begin immigrating,
causing the first hostilities. Law and order was often days away from the settlements of these early pioneers.
Many fights occurred from disagreement over land rights and morality. The Code of the hills was the
excepted method to deal with conflicts, disagreements, and outright disregard for law, it was based on
moral and biblical beliefs. These beliefs were enforced with methods of the times, which accounted for the
only real law and order.

Good Humor Man....REASON TO CRAWL UNDER A ROCK......
LADY GOLFER....By Colleen Collins, 31 of Ferndale, MI
I was at the golf store comparing different kinds of golf balls. I was unhappy
with the women's type I had been using. After browsing for several minutes, I was approached by one of the
good looking gentlemen who works at the store. He asked if he could help me. Without thinking, I looked at
him and said, "I think I like playing with >men's balls."

Outdoor Tip: Series on High Altitudes
Prevention of Altitude Illnesses
Basic Treatment of AMS: Moderate AMS
Moderate AMS includes severe headache that is not relieved by medication, nausea and
vomiting, increasing weakness and fatigue, shortness of breath, and decreased coordination
(ataxia). Normal activity is difficult, although the person may still be able to walk on their own.
At this stage, only advanced medications or descent can reverse the problem. Descending even
a few hundred feet (70-100 meters) may help and definite improvement will be seen in descents
of 1,000-2,000 feet (305-610 meters). Twenty-four hours at the lower altitude will result in
significant improvements. The person should remain at lower altitude until symptoms have
subsided (up to 3 days). At this point, the person has become acclimatized to that altitude and
can begin ascending again. The best test for moderate AMS is to have the person "walk a straight line"
heel to toe. Just like a sobriety test, a person with ataxia will be unable to walk a straight line.
This is a clear indication that immediate descent is required. It is important to get the person to
descend before the ataxia reaches the point where they cannot walk on their own (which would necessitate a litter evacuation).

The Portable Fish Finder
This is a great gift for the fishing enthusiast on your
list. The Portable Fish Finder is a handheld fish finder
that works just like the ones that are permanently mounted
in boats. A handheld unit is great if you rent boats or
just don't want to go to the trouble of mounting a larger
unit. Just dip the transducer in the water and this unit
will give you a graphic look at where the fish are. The
unit will measure depth down to 120 feet. An audible tone
sounds when fish are detected. This unit would be great fun
even if you're not fishing.
The Portable Fish Finder retails for $129.95 as item number

Echelon is perhaps the most powerful intelligence gathering organization in the world. Several credible
reports suggest that this global electronic communications surveillance system presents an extreme
threat to the privacy of people all over the world. According to these reports, ECHELON attempts to capture
staggering volumes of satellite, microwave, cellular and fiber-optic traffic, including communications to and
from North America. This vast quantity of voice and data communications are then processed through
sophisticated filtering technologies.
This massive surveillance system apparently operates with little oversight. Moreover, the agencies that
purportedly run ECHELON have provided few details as to the legal guidelines for the project.
Because of this, there is no way of knowing if ECHELON is being used illegally to spy on private citizens.

The Council on Foreign Relations
And the Trilateral Commission
The two organizations that run the United States
By: Melvin Sickler
There are two groups of elite men and women in particular that most American people do not know about, but which are
a clear threat and danger to the freedom of the American people. These are the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and
the Trilateral Commission.
Right now the United States is completely under the control of those who run these two organizations (David Rockefeller in particular).
It is therefore important to understand these organizations if we wish to understand what has been taking place in the United States
since the early 1900’s.
The resource material I am using that explains in depth what these two organizations are all about was written by Jack Newell and
Devvy Kidd ("Why A Bankrupt America?", Project Liberty, P.O. Box 741075, Arvada, CO 80006-9075). Please allow me to share the
main ideas with you.
Edward Mandell House
The Council on Foreign Relations was founded in 1921 by Edward Mandell House, who had been the chief advisor of
President Woodrow Wilson. Actually, he was more than just a prominent aide of the President; he dominated the President.
He was referred to as Wilson’s "alter ego" (other self), and was credited for being the most powerful individual in the United
States during the Wilson Administration from 1913 until 1921.
House was a Marxist whose goal was to socialize the United States. In 1912, House wrote the book "Philip Dru: Administrator"
in which he stated that he was working for "Socialism as dreamed of by Karl Marx." In this book, House laid out a plan for the
conquest of America, telling how both the Democratic and Republican Parties would be controlled, and be used as instruments
in the creation of a socialistic government. And he asked for the establishment of a state-controlled central bank, which were both
proposed in "The Communist Manifesto". And it was in 1913, during the very first year of the House-dominated Wilson Administration,
that both of these proposals became law. The Federal Reserve Act was passed, which brought into power a private central bank to
create the money of the United States, taking this power away from the united States Congress. And the 16th Amendment to the
United States Constitution, the graduated income tax as proposed by Karl Marx, was also ratified.

Why I Love Mom...
Mom and Dad were watching TV when Mom said, "I'm tired, and it's getting
late. I think I'll go to bed." She went to the kitchen to make
sandwiches for the next day's lunches, rinsed out the popcorn bowls, took
meat out of the freezer for supper the following evening, checked the
cereal box levels, filled the sugar container, put spoons and bowls on
the table, and started the coffee pot for brewing the next morning. She
then put some wet clothes in the dryer, put a load of clothes into the
washer, and secured a loose button. She picked up the game pieces left
on the table and put the telephone book back into the drawer. She
watered the plants, emptied a wastebasket, and hung up a towel to dry.
She yawned and stretched and headed for the bedroom. She stopped by the
desk and wrote a note to the teacher, counted out some cash for the field
trip, and pulled a textbook out from hiding under the chair. She signed
a birthday card for a friend, addressed and stamped the envelope, and
wrote a quick note for the grocery store. She put both near her purse.
Mom then washed her face with 3-in-1 cleanser, put on her night solution
and age fighting moisturizer, brushed and flossed her teeth, and filed
Dad called out, "I thought you were going to bed."
"I'm on my way," she said. She put some water into the dog's dish and
put the cat outside, then made sure the doors were locked. She looked in
on each of the kids and turned out their bedside lamp, hung up a shirt,
threw some dirty socks in the hamper, and had a brief conversation with
the one child up still doing homework. In her own room, she set the
alarm, laid out clothing for the next day, and straightened up the shoe
rack. She added three things to her six most important things to do
list. She said her prayers, and visualized the accomplishment of her
goals. About that time, Dad turned off the TV and announced to no one in
particular, "I'm going to bed." And he did...without another thought.

SAD BUT TRUE: by Rush Limbaugh
Whether you like Rush Limbaugh or not, this is worth reading!
I think the vast differences in compensation between the victims of the September 11th casualty,
and those who die serving the country in uniform, are profound.
No one is really talking about it either because you just don't criticize anything having to do with
September 11th. Well, I just can't let the numbers pass by because it says something really disturbing
about the entitlement mentality of this country.
If you lost a family member in the September 11th attack, you're going to get an average of $1,185,000.
The range is a minimum guarantee of $250,000, all the way up to $4.7 million. If you are a surviving family
member of an American soldier killed in action, the first check you get is a $6,000 direct death benefit,
half of which is taxable. Next, you get $1,750 for burial costs. If you are the surviving spouse, you get $833
a month until you remarry. And there's a payment of $211 per month for each child under 18. When the child
hits 18, those payments come to a screeching halt.Keep in mind that some of the people that are getting an
average of $1.185 million up to $4.7 million are complaining that it's not enough.
We also learned over the weekend that some of the victims From the Oklahoma City bombing have started
an organization asking for the same deal that the September 11th families are getting. In addition to that, some
of the families of those bombed in the embassies are now asking for compensation as well.
You see where this is going, don't you?
Folks, this is part and parcel of over 50 years entitlement politics in this country. It's just really sad. Every time
when a pay raise comes up for the military they usually receive next to nothing of a raise.
Now the green machine is in combat in the Middle East while their families have to survive on food stamps and
live in low rent housing. However our own US Congress just voted themselves a raise, and many of you don't
know that they only have to be in Congress once to receive a pension that is more than $15,000 per month and
most are now equal to be millionaires plus. They also do not receive Social Security on retirement because
they didn't have to pay into the system. If some of the military people stay in for 20 years and get out as an E-7
they may receive a pension of $1,000 per month, and the very people who placed them in harms way receive
a pension of $15,000 per month. I would like to see our elected officials pick up a weapon and join ranks before
they start cutting out benefits and lowering pay for our sons and daughters who are now fighting.
"When do we finally do something about this??"
If this doesn't seem fair to you, it is time to forward this to as many people as you can.

GALS: Cherries For Health
George Washington may have made the cherry tree famous, but
he probably didn't know that the ripe red fruit is packed
full of healthful benefits.
Cherries contain a compound called "perillyl alcohol,"
shown to be effective against mammary cancer in lab
animals. Some human experimentation in similar cancer

BEAUTY: Quick Hair Fix
- At a Car Dealership: "The best way to get back on your feet - miss a car payment."
Want to look your best but don't have time to do your hair
in the morning? Here's a little tip for setting up a "good
hair day." First, wet your hair during your morning shower
and dry with an absorbent towel. (I recommend a good five
minutes of strong circular movements.) While your hair is
still damp, spray on a soft-setting lotion or vitamin hair
lotion. (Avoid those sticky, hard, alcohol-based lotions.)
Now go back to toweling your hair, until you have a fuller,

locks dry naturally while you get ready. Et voila! Easy to
manage, healthy-looking hair that looks like a professional

Making A Square Image :
Are you using a digital camera to take pictures that end up
on a Web site or sent to others via e-mail? Or perhaps you
just scan pictures taken by your trusty 35 MM camera. In
either case, you could use a nice little freeware program
called A Square Image.
A Square Image converts any of your JPG or BMP files to a
smaller (and square) image for use in e-mail or on your Web
site. As an example, suppose you'd like to send your sister
in Washington a photo of your new baby but you find that
the file is huge. You can load this big file into A Square
Image and convert it to a square 512 x 512 picture suitable

desired temperature, partially submerge the food item
(holding it with tongs away from the sides and bottom) in
the oil for10 seconds before releasing it to cook. This
sets the coating and makes it less likely to adhere to the
Although it might be premature to call anything on the web
"classic", there are several sites I keep returning to over
the years. Epicurious (epicurious.com) has excellent
feature articles plus the Bon Appetit and Gourmet recipe
archives. The Food Network site (foodtv.com ) is a great
page, especially when used with the television shows.
Recipe Source (recipesource.com) is the best site to find
many versions of the same recipe.
