If you have lived during the winter months on the Plains, you know what a ground  blizzard is. The most well-known blizzards are winter storms that produce several inches occurring with strong winds that cause blowing snow and whiteout conditions, but not all blizzards happen this way. Ground blizzards develop with little or new snowfall.

This article was researched and submitted by EJ Ledet, a local chemical engineer who also specializes in chemical science. Mr. Ledet has submitted this for publication and I have agreed with the caveat that this article is not a recommendation, but an informational resource for readily available supplements like zinc and selinium, which have promising properties in boosting your immune system to stay avoid contracting communicable diseases like the coronavirus.

This is not a medical recommendation and is only published for the benefit of those who are looking for ways to stay as healthy as possible. It is also recommended that you take the time to ask your physician if you are taking any medications that would not interact well with these two mineral/supplements, or if you have any underlying medical issues that may be negatively affected by these supplements

Maybe the best remedy is to boost our immune systems with Zinc supplements. Research on other Corona viruses ( SARS a close cousin of CoV19, MERS , HIV, rhinovirus “cold” virus, ) have used zinc with a carrier (ionophore) molecule ( metal chelate/ligand like “pyrithione,” which in itself is effective against bacteria and fungus of which two commonly known are dermatitis and dandruff.

founding fathers

by Lorraine Newman

Because those old white wigged founders 244 years ago knew what they were doing. 

They knew it was better to be self-reliant than government dependent.

They knew that the guarantee of free speech leads to greater freedom of information and would serve the country's defense and overall safety.

They knew that less government regulations enables people to pivot quickly when faced with difficult problems to solve.

They knew that no one person, be they king or queen, president or commander in chief, should be the sole charge for the welfare of an entire populace.

Today's show topics: "How to eat healthy -- to stay healthy -- in the midst of a world of unknowns?" And, "How green and healthy is a green economy?"

For decades we have been watching the Marvel heroes and villains battle across our screens; we all know that is fantasy.  A person who has extraordinary powers battles a known enemy.   When you look at the definition of hero in the dictionary the  very first description is “a mythological or legendary figure often of divine descent endowed with great strength or ability.”

In real life true heroes are almost unrecognizable.  You know them, they are in your neighborhood, they are on the bus in the seat next to you, they are your co-workers.  They can drive you crazy, they can make you angry, they make you laugh when sharing stories of their lives.  Look around do you see them?

Without the ability to trade with one another, we are all back to subsistence living. Back to living on what we can create ourselves in our backyards. hile this will result in that American “pot belly” disappearing, it is not what we should strive for in our international relations.`Lorraine Newman

Our thanks to Ag Newswire for the following report on how a trade agreement that did not require Congressional approval will benefit the farming communities in our country:

Montana Farm Bureau is applauding the trade deal between the United States and Japan that will further open markets for both countries. Agriculture is among the biggest beneficiaries.

“Every farmer in Montana understands the importance of trade and with the trade agreement leveling the playing field and opening up more markets, it’s beneficial for all Montana farmers and ranchers,” said MFBF President Hans McPherson. “In Montana we produce the world’s best wheat, and Japan loves it.”

The Impact of Soleimani’s Death, by Jim McKinney, 10 Jan 2020

The US Strike on Iranian Major General Qasem Soleimani was the most significant event in the Middle East in nearly 70 years.  The unmanned “Reaper” drone strike at the Bagdad Airport on 2 Jan 2020 that killed Soleimani was precise, rapid with no civilian casualties.  Even though it has turned the region upside down, I believe it will be strategically important in the long term. 

Soleimani was not the second most powerful man in Iran, he was the most power individual in all of the Middle East.  He directed the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps ‘Quds Force’, the Iranian external special operations and intelligence force. The IRGC protects the Iranian Theocracy, the Quds Force spreads their influence.  Soleimani was the man that kept the religious rulers in power.

Our thanks to Maddie for sharing this story...

I talked with a man today, an 80+ year old man.  I asked him if there was anything I can get him while this Coronavirus scare was gripping America.

He simply smiled, looked away and said:

"Let me tell you what I need!  I need to believe, at some point, this country my generation fought for... I need to believe this nation we handed safely to our children and their children...

I need to know this generation will quit being a bunch of sissies...that they respect what they've been given...that they've earned what others sacrificed for."

I wasn't sure where the conversation was going or if it was going anywhere at all.  So, I sat there, quietly observing.

“Heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend who, heard it from another you’ve been messing around.”

Gossip, we have all been caught up in its ugly web at sometime.  That’s why the beginning of this Reo-Speedwagon song is so catchy. It brings us back to our days in high school or a bad stereotype for women in the 60’s.
