U.S. Life Expectancy Declines

The Kingman farmers market sells GMO and glyphosate laden corn without any disclosure.  Feed people lots of toxic high fructose corn syrup (in almost all non organic processed food) and many will die off shortly after retirement.  The people in charge are geniuses.

Trump will likely support the ever increasing use of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and production of CHEAP food so that workers don’t have to be paid a living wage.

Trump wants to scrap health care for workers as well as retirees.

The life expectancy of Americans will likely continue to decline.

From U.S. Life Expectancy Declines : Shots – Health News : NPR:

… Most notably, the overall death rate for Americans increased because mortality from heart disease and stroke increased after declining for years. Deaths were also up from Alzheimer’s disease, respiratory disease, kidney disease and diabetes. More Americans also died from unintentional injuries and suicide. In all, the decline was driven by increases in deaths from eight of the top 10 leading causes of death in the U.S. …

It’s really sad to see so many of my friends and neighbors die in their 60s because their healthcare sucks and they eat supermarket food that slowly kills them.  And most don’t have a clue because they think the government ensures the safety of our food.   The Family Dollar and its “food” will definitely contribute to many more untimely deaths in Meadview.

And the rich get richer …

Meadview Boathouse restaurant closed for winter

There we go again …

The Boathouse was recently closed for “remodeling” and was also often just closed.  Now they’re closed for the winter.  Not the way to run a business, especially when you’re trying to sell it.

I read on Facebook that they served grass fed beef at one point, but unfortunately I missed that.  So I haven’t eaten there at all as I had heard that it was frozen burgers with little service.

The covered patio looked so inviting, especially on summer evenings.

No progress at the Crows Nest.

Canyon’s End is the only restaurant now.

Black Friday Tractor Supply Company – TSC Champion generator order nightmare

I hate Black Friday shopping with a passion and would never actually go to a store to participate in that madness.  But since I needed a new generator, I spent a number of hours researching various brands and models.  In spring I got a new Harbor Freight generator that lasted less than 6 months — CRAP! FYI, the Harbor Freight warranty requires you to SHIP the generator for repairs and that makes the warranty pretty much useless.

Over the years I’ve owned at least a couple Champion generators and I had been using my previous Champion for over 2 years with almost daily use for several hours.   So, back to Champion it is.

A generator mechanical question:  I’ve been running my old Champion for at least two months since the Harbor Freight generator kinda died and while the Champion still runs great, it doesn’t put out much power anymore.  I read somewhere to plug in a hair dryer (or other high watt appliance) occasionally to make the brushes last longer.  Is that true?  Is there a way to replace brushes without a major expense?

So I looked online for a 3000 – 4000 running watts model and I could have bought a Champion with free shipping on Amazon for around $279 plus tax.  TSC had the Champion 3650W online on sale for $250 (regular $330) plus tax and I decided to order a week ago on Black Friday.

I got an order confirmation, but the next morning I received a CANCELLATION.
