  1. CORONA Common Sense Since they are calling on Respiratory therapist to help fight the Corona virus, and I am a retired one, too old to work in a hospital setting. I'm gonna share some common sense wisdom with those that have the virus and trying to stay home. If my advice is followed as given you will improve your chances of not ending up in the hospital on a ventilator. This applies to the otherwise generally healthy population, so use discretion. 1. Only high temperatures kill a virus, so let your fever run high. Tylenol, Advil. Motrin, Ibuprofen etc. will bring your fever down allowing the virus to live longer. They are saying that ibuprophen, advil etc will actually exacerbate the virus. Use common sense and don't let fever go over 103 or 104 if you got the guts. If it gets higher than that take your tylenol, not ibuprophen or advil to keep it regulated. It helps to keep house warm and cover up with blankets so body does not have to work so hard to generate the heat. It usually takes about 3 days of this to break the fever. 2. The body is going to dehydrate with the elevated temperature so you must rehydrate yourself regulaly, whether you like it or not. Gatorade with real sugar, or pedialyte with real sugar for kids, works well. Why the sugar? Sugar will give your body back the energy it is using up to create the fever. The electrolytes and fluid you are losing will also be replenished by the Gatorade. If you don't do this and end up in the hospital they will start an IV and give you D5W (sugar water) and Normal Saline to replenish electrolytes. Gatorade is much cheaper, pain free, and comes in an assortment of flavors 3. You must keep your lungs moist. Best done by taking long steamy showers on a regular basis, if your wheezing or congested use a real minty toothpaste and brush your teeth while taking the steamy shower and deep breath through your mouth. This will provide some bronchial dialation and help loosen the phlegm. Force your self to cough into a wet wash cloth pressed firmly over your mouth and nose, which will cause greater pressure in your lungs forcing them to expand more and break loose more of the congestion. 4. Eat healthy and regularly. Gotta keep your strength up. 5. Once the fever breaks, start moving around to get the body back in shape and blood circulating. 6. Deep breath on a regular basis, even when it hurts. If you don't it becomes easy to develope pneumonia. Pursed lip breathing really helps. That's breathing in deep and slow then exhaling through tight lips as if your blowing out a candle, blow until you have completely emptied your lungs and you will be able to breath in an even deeper breath. This helps keep lungs expanded as well as increase your oxygen level. 7. Remember that every medication you take is merely relieving the symptoms, not making you well. 8. If your still dying go to ER. I've been doing these things for myself and my family for over 40 years and kept them out of the hospital, all are healthy and still living today. Thank you all for sharing. We gotta help one another.
  2. On my claim in 1976 out by Last Chance Canyon when the wind blew my partner Bruce and I would hike up the sandy canyon. When the sun was right you could see flakes and small pieces shinning in the sun we would pick them up with tweezers and put them in the bottle. When they expanded Redrock Canyon State park They took most of the claim and put boulders across the bottom of the canyon so we could not drive to our camping spot and dry wash.
  3. Hope you had the best of birthdays!
  4. Hey grubstake I beat you to 71 by 6 days. Have a great birthday! Bob
  5. That is some nice looking iron rich dirt with a sprinkle of quartz. Good eye Cowkiller!
  6. Witching with copper rods worked for me one time. Had a leak in a 4 inch line and the water was coming up through a gopher hole about 12 feet from where I thought the line was. I had put the line in about 25 years ago. I thought the line ran under the middle of the road. After witching it I found it was about 8 ft away from the road middle. Dug down and found the line right where the rods crossed. I had forgotten I moved the road over when we put the vineyard in. Worked for me. Bob
  7. Working at a large vineyard removing grape leafs with my machine. A guy came in to the lot I park my tractor in. He was hired to locate the water lines before they started construction on a winery. He witched them using copper rods. Put flags along all the lines running through the lot, There were quite a few. I asked the owners how well he did, they said he located everyone and did a great job. Bob
  8. Quartz and Rhyolite, wasted your money on a diamond detector.
  9. Have not seen you for years. Last time was out at the Dale with the WSPA. Happy Birthday!
  10. That is way cool! Wonder what kind if hacksaw blade he used to cut the blank?
  11. My prediction is mostly intuition. Geopolitical uncertainty will certainly cause investors to choose gold as a safe haven. I do think that $1800.00 a ounce is very possible this year. Just my opinion. We will have to wait and see. Bob
  12. The possibility of conflict with Iran is going to drive gold prices way up this year. Hang on to your gold it will break the $1800.00 mark. Unfortunately fuel prices are likely to rise. Bob
  13. Sorry It was sold a few weeks ago. been out detecting for awhile. thanks, Bob
  14. So sad, sorry to hear about your friend Bill. Hope and pray he recovers. Bob
  15. Are you using Lidar systems to analyze areas?
  16. Geez Arizona is getting almost as bad as Crapafornia. I think that is all the politicians do is invent ways to take our money. Then give themselves a raise and a pat on the back for getting more revenue. Bob
  17. I have heard that next year anybody from out of state will need a $30.00 sticker good for one year to drive their quad, motorcycle or SXS off road in Arizona. Bob

  20. Back in the mid 70s my friend Bruce in his Toyota truck and my wife and our 120 lb Rhodesian Ridgeback in my CJ5 drove from Pasadena to Anza Borrego area We headed up Rockhouse canyon to hunt for a placer mine that had produced some great gold for the old prospector that worked it at the base of the Santa Rosa Mtns. Got to the area on our topo map and knew the mine was about 2 miles from our position. We hiked up a ridge through the teddy bears, dog had already meet a few jumpers that we pulled out. We could see his placer mine in the distance, but the whole valley before us was solid with chollas impossible to get through even without a dog. We camped and drove home disappointed the next day.
