  1. The Federal Government generally takes the lead?? Ever hear of States Rights? Look it up. Learn whose role it is to protect each state and when, under what circumstances, and how.
  2. Surprisingly, Gov Newsome is giving credit where credit is due. He has, for the time being at least, appeared to put differences aside and provided positive feedback and support in a very difficult time. Good for Him! Now if only the chronic complainers out there would do the same!
  3. At Ease, and Carry On! I will be in the area all afternoon! Actually, all four tires are Generals. That adds up to a 4 Star General ranking! But of course, if that were actually the case, I certainly would not be driving my own vehicle or digging my own sorry azz out of trouble! Just as an aside: Last Fall, I experienced a perceived electrical problem which left me stranded several miles up Santo Domingo wash. Fortunately, a Bob Cat trapper came along and graciously agreed to tow, (drag) me to Jack Ass flats in his older 4 X Chevy truck. I can't say it was a nice ride, but at least it got
  4. Back in Feb, when the world was still perceived to be more or less normal, a couple of friends joined me to check out a hand dug hardrock mine/prospect that I hadn't had a chance to detect yet. No claims records or markers could be located and the mine wasn't currently being worked. The miners had crushed the ore and shoveled it onto the crude wooden ore chute that snaked down the side of the ridge to the creek below. The country rock of the mine adit, (from the outside looking in), appeared to be a mushy red quartz conglomerate that was unstable. No hard quartz lead was observed. After
  5. It kind of looks like we may be headed for a maintenance type of preventative dosage, similar to what visitors to other countries have to take to avoid infection. "Hydroxychloroquine can be prescribed for either prevention or treatment of malaria. The drug has a long track record in medicine, having been used since the 1940s as an antimalarial. The modern drug is a synthetic form of quinine, which is found in the bark of the Cinchona plant. The plant was taken as an herbal remedy by indigenous Peruvians four centuries ago to treat fever. And there are some early indications it could work agai
  6. "certain people"? So it's about the how, not the who? I wish you were right. Maybe you need to read it again . . .
  7. Nice parry Bob. But no touche' with your reversal, and who said it made a difference anyway ? I certainly didn't. That's the whole point. Logically speaking, all partisanship aside: It shouldn't make any difference at all. If it works, and that's the tool we have available, let's use it! And anything else that works too!
  8. From the above Link: Remdesivir and chloroquine effectively inhibit the recently emerged novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in vitro. Manli Wang,#1Ruiyuan Cao,#2Leike Zhang,#1Xinglou Yang,#1Jia Liu,1Mingyue Xu,1Zhengli Shi,1Zhihong Hu,1Wu Zhong,2 and Gengfu Xiao1 That being the case, it would seem to beg the question: Why this? "Surely it's much better then the much touted hydroxychloquine certain people were peddling" What difference does it make with regards to who the proponent of the drug is?
  9. The smaller iron stones/lode stones that I have found are usually in a wash, in compacted gravel. They come off of a hill side, or erode out of the bank, like gold does, since they are heavy. The larger specimens, probably come from association with volcanic intrusive events, I believe, since you find them in areas where there are ironstone outcrops.
  10. Hydroxychloroquine, to a great extent tended to have excellent results when administered in time to save people (like countries abroad were doing). Administered early, before patients are hospitalized, intubated, on respirators, (and are dying), the drug saved people. Unfortunately, the way the drug was generally being administered was In late stages of the disease, or when the cytokine dump was either in progress or imminent. Then it was too late, and it's no wonder people were dying en mass. So far, it appears that Remdesivir may be tend to work better overall, (late stage administration)
  11. the flowers are still beautiful . . . Yes, they are! These beauties here in the desert as well! The Hedge Hog Cacti bloom once a year, in April, for about a week. Salud!
  12. Bunk and debunk, like "facts" are, of course, subjectively in the eye of the beholder.
  13. IS THERE BALM IN GILEAD? Remdesivir, made by Gilead, is all over the news, being touted as the new wonder drug to defeat Covid 19? Let hope it's true but what about the other drugs that work and are much, much cheaper ? Is there more to the story? Did Dr. Faucci fund any of the studies or have a financial interest in the outcome? Any conflict of interest in his glowing endorsement? Big Pharma et al, tends to help those (Doctors), to help themselves . . . Not conspiratorial, but does seem curious . . .
  14. Nice try meaning . . . I was thinkin that maybe he was tryin to ease the subject off in a safer direction.
  15. Hey Bob, Your family ever use trumpillo to make asadero? My neighbors Mom used to make it although I never had any. Sounds good though. "In Chihuahua, north Mexico, the berries of Solarium elaeagnifolium (trompillo or silverleaf nightshade) have been used in the manufacture of artisanal filata-type asadero cheese." (A potentially deadly nightshade unless you know how to use it)
  16. Is there a like button we can click, to show Bob that we like, the like button that Bob clicked?
  17. ANTI-ACID DRUG FAMOTIDINE BEING TESTED FOR COVID 19: A big run on pharmacy sales of common anti-acid drug. Apparently is being tested successfully as a anti-viral medicine for covid 19. Reduced to liquid form, 9 times regular dose, mainlined to patients, seems to be "showing promise" in test trial. Dr. Kevin Tracey, president of Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research at Northwell Health, which runs 23 hospitals in the New York City area, said that's because, theoretically, the structure of famotidine is such that it could stop the virus from replicating, in the same way that protease
  18. Matt, please post photo of your armored car . . .
  19. That's the biggest channel cat that I have seen. Caught a ton of them night fishing at the base of the caballo dam at the confluence of the river and the backwater eddy current, Back in the day before it became a state park. Average size about 1.5 to 2 lbs. Mighty fine eating. Much better, IMO, than their bigger cousins.
  20. Nice fish. Channel cat, Bob? Only reason I ask is the split tail which makes it look like a cc rather than a blue or a flat head.
  21. See what I mean Reese. Take a look at BRB's post: "Either way, the best indicator of gold is little pieces of gold. Not pieces of iron" "You should dig all targets. And even obvious hot rocks that may be obscuring a signal. But digging noisy slingshot ammo will not fill the poke no matter how many you dig" Reese, sorry to say, there is a long history which, unfortunately, you were not aware of, and got sucked into the middle of it. Best,
