Flu Shots

Well as most of you know the flu this season has surpassed most expectations this season.  Kind of makes one think don’t it that if these flu shots that they spend millions on promoting are doing their job at all.  I would think if they were, there would be less cases around not more or getting worse.  Truth be known most people getting the flu right now are the same people who were vaccinated with the flu shot.  If you really want to stay healthy this flu season, the answer is Vitamin D. I would also like to mention here that for those that can get out into the sunshine to do so, as it is the best source of vitamin D there is.  Along with a good healthy diet and life style.   To verify the truth in all this…. check with your own friends, family members or co-workers. Ask the ones who got sick: Did you get a flu shot? See what arises from that question, I am sure you will be surprised. I have found from asking folks that most have had the flu shot.   It’s all there my friends, right before your eyes. You just have to look, pay attention and take the blinders off.  So all an all I guess this flu shot does work to some extent, it gives a lot of folks the flu.

News For Port Loring

Nice sunny day folks with temperatures up near 30 F so great day to head on out and soak up some of that sunshine. If one could get out of the wind in a real secluded spot, you would be able to almost take your shirt off.  The day before yesterday I could start feeling the warmth from the sun again.  Feels good too and nothing is better for ones health.  The cold is what is needed to get rid of the flu bug and the sunshine prevents you from getting it.  No flu shot needed.  Always surprises me with so many flu shots being handed out that the flu in this country is getting worse.  That in itself should tell folks something.  Will it? Not likely..  Anyways, have a great day my friends.

Quiet with not much happening. Great weather though for those walks through the bush.  Snow isn’t too deep and one can take in easily what nature has to offer.  Wife and I were out most the afternoon yesterday enjoying each others company and the day.  Just what one should be doing.  Don’t ya think?  On another note; Highway 522 is Bare and wet.  Not a bad day for traveling, tomorrow will even be better.  Enjoy your day my friends.

Interesting Article What Health Canada Is Doing

You can read below and then click this link for all the information.

Corporations like mainstream media, multi-billion dollars pharmaceutical companies, and the cancer industry don’t know anything about health. They don’t want to know and they don’t need to know. They are businesses and they need to make money. They use fear and the promise of a symptom-free life as motivators. They also have to serve high interests and brainwash the population with theories, which change according to the drug or toxic therapy that’s being marketed and brings the most profit at the time.

Very quiet around town.  Nice weather though for them outdoor walks. Nothing is more healthier than a good brisk walk every day; does the mind and body both good and if the truth be known, other than good eating habits nothing more needs to be done.  On another note: Highway 522 is bare today, so traveling is quite good.  In saying that, there could be a few patches of ice here and there so some care should be taken.  Enjoy your day my friends.

Well finally the new weather station for Port Loring is up and running.  Took us the better part of yesterday to get the sensors situated and sending data.  I will add things manually here at the Blog till Karl has the graphs and added features installed onto the Local Service’s Boards Man Page.  Lot of work now for Karl to get things just right. But the cold outside work is finished and everything is working great.  On another note we will see some pretty cold weather coming to us here in Port Loring with in the next 10-15 days from a Large Arctic Front that is bearing down on us.  I also predict a very cold February.  So winter is upon us folks, time to bundle up if going outside, along with keeping the home fires burning.  Snowmobiles  and ice fishing folks will be happy.  Great to be alive though.  Isn’t it?  Also I will start adding the best times to be out there ice fishing; brought to you by our weather stick and some old ways added in; starting in a few days. Just need to get a few more things together to complete that task.  Enjoy your day my friends.

New Weather Station For Port Loring Ontario

On another note my son Karl that works at NORAD started installing a new weather monitoring station for Port Loring. It is being set up here at my home.  This station consists of one Data Logger,     One Transmitter;    One antenna;  One GPS unit for signal assessment, along with the new Met Station One (MSO) weather station  which combines five of the most popular meteorological measurements into one simple, economical package, allowing for efficient and accurate comprehensive weather monitoring.  Karl has everything set up as of now, all but the sensor which will be added once it arrives with in the next few days. It will be quite the thing for Port Loring now having a weather station of its own. With folks being able to check daily of what is happening in and around our community relating to our weather conditions.  All Data relating to our weather will be uploaded to our Local Service Boards Web Site  every few minutes, along with being stored for future reference.  Also we will be working on a local forecast which will be added as the station progresses. I have been collecting weather data for most my life using nature as my main reference book, along with some simple scientific devises.  Just something that I have enjoyed doing.  Now with this new high end station it will sure be a treat, along with being a great asset for our community.  Thing is we don’t have a station that is accurate pertaining to our own conditions being so far off the beaten track. Our data comes from stations in and around North Bay & Britt Ontario.  Here in Port Loring, weather can, an is most of the times quite different than what we are being told.  The station that is being set up here in Port Loring will be every bit as good, if not a touch better than the government stations that are out there today. Reason being we will be monitoring it daily along with adding the most efficient sensors that are out there in todays market.   Now for most, you are probably saying. OK…what is this going to cost us? Well other than a few dollars for uploading data to your web site and a few dollars  more for making a program to handle the weather data on your Local Services Boards Web site; it will cost you; nothing to speak of. I myself along with my son Karl and Valcom the company that my son is employed with  has absorbed every cent. It is something that my son and I  have always wanted to do and have now done so.  It will be our contribution to our community.  There is other costs of maintaining the equipment & station how ever, along with adding new sensors as time goes by. So we will be adding a donation button on the web site.  This will leave things up to you, if you like and enjoy having your own private weather station, then it will be your own decision if you want to contribute in its future, simple as that.
