Yeah larsonstdoc, we also run the real premium gasoline
in the tractor.  It's a big tractor too, it gets good hours to the
gallon with moving stuff around with the bolt on forklift forks
but the minute you attach something to the PTO like the big
6ft wide mower, it's a pig on gas.   I have to budget for tractor
gas literally as we get 20 gallons of it at a time.   The tractor though
has paid for itself after the first few uses compared to all the years here
when we didn't have one and did everything by hand.   

Here's a pic of the murphy's law boulder I need hubby to move with
the tractor, I changed my mind at the last minute and now it's in the
way for a future project.  this wouldn't have been possible to move
without the tractor running pricey gasoline in it LOL

  What a boulder.  Yes, doing everything by hand is the pits.  You really wonder how they put the Pyramids together without any real machinery.

They had 'real' machinery. They smartly used contra weights together with lift sleds and pulley system.

They also had an inside pyramid spiral ramp like in a parking garage.

  Of course there is a lot of conjecture there.  No one really knows.  There is no document that states how they built it.  But his theories are excellent.  There was a lot of brute force by humans.

How many large stones were used in construction of the GREAT PYRAMID at GIZA?

Best Answer: The study estimates the number of blocks used in construction of the
GREAT PYRAMID was between 2-2.8 million (an average of 2.4 million), but settles
on a much reduced finished total of 2 million subtracting the estimated area of
the hollow spaces of the chambers and galleries.


Laying one (HUGE!) stone per hour = 2 million hours = 8,760 years (24 hrs. a day!)

Since that is impossible lets guess:
12 hours per day - one stone per hour = 17,520 years

Even 12 hours per day EVERY DAY for 17,500 years is a STRETCH!
Especially considering that the stones were PRECISELY cut and milled
MANY MILES upstream and because of their weight and difficulty
in shipping downstream in REED BOATS they could only conceivably
have been shipped during extreme high tide of the NILE during a
few weeks period each year. Of course, this doesn't take into account the
purchasing and shipping in of a steady supply of timber (from Lebanon?)
to use for rollers, etc.

Also, we are talking about only the LARGEST of the three pyramids on
the GIZA mesa … and there are LOTS of other pyramids and MONUMENTAL
construction all over Egypt.

I highly recommend seeing  " King Tuts"  exhibit if it
comes to anyone's area, it is so amazing the artifacts
recovered from that era, you won't believe some of the
workmanship from  the furniture to jewelry!  They
were so much more advanced then they're given credit for.

That big boulder has a  "twin" out in the field.  Before mowing the
acreage down, all rocks, etc. have to be removed that are sticking up
so as not to scrape them with the mower and risk sparks - fire.   The
boulder is in the way for a giant metal greenhouse that's coming over here
in the fall, it needs to be cut in half (or more) to get on a trailer, then
re-welded back together here.

 It'll also be big enough to section off an
area inside it to raise 25 cornish cross meat birds also known as broilers
next spring.   The giant metal framed greenhouse  was offered to us for free.
We'll need to "skin it" we're not going to use rolls of plastic, plastic doesn't
last long in the winds here.   (we didn't know about the high winds when
we bought this place LOL)

With the drought only getting worse and California becoming a dust bowl fast,
the high winds here year round, the big greenhouse will insure me I can raise
certain veges and not have a 70 MPH wind storm like we had last week at night
knock everything over and kill it in my garden. 

The tractor is just over 40 years old, the gas engine = 67 H.P.  (horsepower)
and the PTO = 53 H.P.   LOL I really pissed hubby off over the years
refusing  to buy smaller tractors when he'd find used ones because I
held firm saying with our rough terrain acreage we'd break a smaller tractor
and with this bad-boy big tractor we have, everything is a piece of cake to do
with it!   It also has a front loader and the bucket on it is also big.

  Sounds like the winds in Montana.  We have a couple of places in Montana where the winds blow semi's over.

  I talked to a sheriff and he told me that in 09 he was investigating a semi roll over.  He got out of his car and 5 seconds later another semi rolled over onto his police car.

larsonstdoc, I didn't know Montana got high winds.
It's amazing at the destruction wind can do!   A couple
hours north of us they get those "straight line winds"
that snap phone poles, 100 foot pine trees in half like
they are toothpicks!   I'm just grateful we don't get
tornadoes out here when the wind gets going. 

I can always tell when the wind gets to 55 MPH (miles per hour)
when I'm outside with my back to the wind, it almost pushes,
knocks me over!  We have to keep the tarps on the wood piles
in place with a lot of heavy pallets too holding the tarps down.

I talked to our friend who's giving us the greenhouse, he made it
years ago and we came up with a plan to bolt the sucker onto
6x6's  using lag bolts and to make sure the wind doesn't push
the greenhouse, the 6x6's  will get holes drilled in them and spikes
from an old windmill will be driven through the 6x6's  and into the
ground two feet.   Akin to bolting a house foundation down.  All
the materials will be free also to set the greenhouse in place. 

I don't think California will come out of the drought anytime soon
and one thing that is really good is slice tomatoes, put in a dehydrator
with a dusting of salt on the slices and then store in your freezer once
dried.   The greenhouse will insure me I'll have tomatoes.   When I
lived in California I'd still have live producing tomato plants at Christmas.

California Farms Are Using Drilling Wastewater to Grow Crops


California’s epic drought is pushing Big Oil to solve a problem it’s struggled with for decades: what to do with the billions of gallons of wastewater that gush out of wells every year.

Golden State drillers have pumped much of that liquid back underground into disposal wells. Now, amid a four-year dry spell, more companies are looking to recycle their water or sell it to parched farms as the industry tries to get ahead of environmental lawsuits and new regulations.

The trend could have implications for oil patches across the country. With fracking boosting the industry’s thirst for water, companies have run into conflicts from Texas to Colorado to Pennsylvania. California could be an incubator for conservation efforts that have so far failed to gain traction elsewhere in the U.S.

Drillers may have little choice. The state’s 50,000 disposal wells have come under increased scrutiny this year, after regulators said they’d mistakenly allowed companies to inject wastewater near underground drinking supplies. Environmental groups sued the state to stop the practice at 2,500 sites considered most sensitive.

  Some possible good news.

Strong El Niño Set to Bring California Drought Relief


El Niño has strengthened and will likely peak in the late fall and last until the spring, bringing much-needed relief to regions in California affected by drought, federal weather officials said Thursday.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said there is now a 90% chance that El Niño will last through the winter and an 80% chance it will last into spring 2016.

“The stronger this event becomes, the more confident that next winter we’ll see stronger precipitation in California and the whole southwestern United States,” said Mike Halpert, an official at NOAA.

Tom Selleck Accused of Public Water Theft

by Ryan Gajewski

7/8/2015

A Southern California water district
alleges that the actor repeatedly
filled a commercial water truck from
a public hydrant, ignoring cease-and -desists.

Tom Selleck appears to be in hot water.

Calleguas Municipal Water District
filed suit against the actor and his
wife, Jillie Mack, on Monday,
claiming he used a public hydrant to
fill a commercial water truck on 12
different occasions, according to
Courthouse News Service.

With the state of California
suffering through a serious drought,
the water district says that it saw
the truck fill up from a hydrant at a
Thousand Oaks construction site and
then take seven trips in September
and October 2013 into the Hidden
Valley area that is believed to be
Selleck's residence.

Court documents allege that the Blue
Bloods star continued filling his
tanker even after cease-and-desist
notices were sent to two of his
Southern California homes.

The district, which serves a large
portion of Ventura County, claims it
paid $21,685.55 to an investigator to
look into the alleged water theft. It
is seeking that amount and an
injunction, along with court and
attorney fees.

A rep for Selleck did not immediately
respond to a request for comment.

California deserves this. They are the most expensive stupid people on the planet and use up way too much valuable oxygen.

"A lot of water has been thrown at the problem, to no apparent effect," he said. "Twenty million Californians depend on a water supply kept away from them by one small, little population of fish."

Good riddance, wrote Fresno-based Harry Cline of the Farm Press Blog. Turning off the pumps that serve the state and federal water projects wasted about 800,000 acre-feet of water in 2013 "based on the science of four buckets of minnows. That is enough water to produce crops on 200,000 acres or 10 million tons of tomatoes; 200 million boxes of lettuce; 20 million tons of grapes."

Californians Accuse Gov. Brown Of Willful Neglect, Question Why He Permits Massive Chemtrail Spraying Program Conducted Over The Entire State Of California Since Drought Began

http://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=13962

In the midst of the California drought emergency, the huge multinational Nestlé, seller of bottled water to the world, is providing one example of what must be stopped. Gov. Jerry Brown, while cutting public water use 25% by order in Sacramento, as in the rest of the state, has placed no limitation on Nestlé’s withdrawal of freshwater from aquifer springs nearby. Nestlé (alias here: the Arrowhead Mountain Water Company) continues to draw water at an 80 million gallon/year rate, paying 2 or 3 cents/gallon; it bottles the water in Sacramento, and sells it for roughly $16/gallon-equivalent to the city’s population, which has had its tap water use restricted.

Watch the state remove via executive order due to the
drought emergency all the grand-father'ed in old water
rights farmers have had for decades.   JBT take over of all
water by the state.

This photo jerry posted in reply #214  says it all and I've

Meat of the Matter: Long-predicted water crisis is here

July 22, 2015

Dan Murphy

http://www.cattlenetwork.com

It’s not just producers and farmers who are getting hit with rising costs and growing shortages of water. When it comes to H2O, everyone better get prepared to pay more and get less.

In its long history, water has never been more precious, more controversial, more expensive or more essential to agriculture and commerce than it is right now.

A symbol of purity in cosmetic ads, a stand-in for quality in beer ads, the poster boy for violence and destruction during floods, hurricanes and tsunamis, water is currently so scarce out West that it threatens to decimate the nation’s most productive farming region (California) and cripple some of its most populous cities across the southwestern Sun Belt.

Water has even emerged as the calculus for measuring how ethical our food choices are: Hence the claim beef requires thousands of gallons of water per pound to produce, while grains and legumes consume only a fraction of the amount of water that animal foods require.

So say the industry’s critics, at any rate.

The credibility of such accusations are suspect, but charges that livestock production and meat processing consume too much water have been bolstered by the impact of a serious drought now entering its fourth year in the western U.S.

In California, the drought is turning lawns brown, making #droughtshaming a trending topic and wreaking havoc with the state’s multi-billion-dollar agricultural industry. Even though farming has initially been exempted from the 25% reduction in water use mandated by the state for California cities and towns, the drought is taking a serious toll on growers and farmers.

According to a recent study from the University of California-Davis, the drought will likely cost California farmers more than $2.7 billion in losses, wipe out more than 18,000 jobs and result in the forced fallowing of more than 564,000 arable acres.

And that’s this year alone.

“This study does not address long-term costs of groundwater overdraft, such as higher pumping costs and greater water scarcity,” according to the study’s conclusions. “The socioeconomic impacts of an extended drought, in 2016 and beyond, could be much more severe.”

Richard Howitt, a professor emeritus at UC-Davis and one of the authors of the study, said the situation for farmers could get worse.

Howitt told National Public Radio that despite cuts of 60% in surface water supplies, access to underground water has allowed farmers to compensate for at least 70% of that. He said that meant the net reduction is about 8% of total irrigation water.

However, groundwater is now running dangerously low, especially in California’s Central Valley, the heart of the state’s farm country, an area that doesn’t have the reserves of groundwater available elsewhere.

“The impact [of the drought] is concentrated in areas that don’t have access to underground water, the Central Valley, the San Joaquin Valley,” the U-C Davis study noted.

Rising costs all around

Meanwhile, beyond the crippling shortages of rainfall and irrigation water that threaten U.S. agriculture — and ultimately, the nation’s food supply — urban residents are confronting another set of problems related not to supplies but to aging delivery systems.

As the “era of cheap water comes to an end,” said Tom Curtis, the head of government affairs for the American Water Works Association, rising costs for delivering water are poised to impact states and municipalities already struggling under budgetary constraints.

Not only farmers and producers, but virtually everyone either is or shortly will be faced with surging costs for an essential commodity which generations have taken for granted will always be available, and always be affordable.

Just go ahead and delete that expectation.

For starters, the main water lines in many older cities were installed as long as a century ago and now urgently need to be replaced. The price tag? According to AWWA estimates, such a project would cost more than $2 trillion over the next 25 years to upgrade and expand drinking water and wastewater systems nationally.

That’s the conservative estimate, by the way.

Meanwhile, cities across the Sun Belt are facing the prospect of future water shortages and are already spending massive amounts of money searching for additional sources of supply. Tapping into newer aquifers and building bigger reservoirs are temporary fixes, but don’t solve the essential problem of providing sufficient water for millions of people living in what are desert landscapes.

There’s one other problem facing the majority of urban areas, both large and small: EPA rules require replacement of the dual storm-sewer and sanitary-sewer systems currently in place. Such systems overflow during storms or incidents of heavy precipitation and discharge raw sewage into surface waters.

That’s going to cost more hundreds of billions of dollars that cities and states don’t have sitting in some rainy-day account.

So guess who’s going to pay for it all?

You and me and every other resident of virtually every municipality in the country.

Water has become as critical as oil — blue is indeed the new black — and it’s poised to become not only as precious but equally expensive.

Thanks larsonstdoc for the info on price per pound deals.  So far
all I'm seeing in my area is fruit especially pushing $4 to $5 a pound!
The big metal greenhouse got towed over here today and it's one of my
prep contingency plans to insure in the future (near future at that) I'll
be able to grow, harvest and preserve a lot more veges.  Here it's so
windy all the time vege gardens struggle.  At the link there's some
pics and info on the greenhouse, it was free. 

please see decemberfellows thread called  NO DOWNER POSTS - page 4

Named and shamed:
Californians blast each other for water-wasting on social media

August 1, 2015

Californians are taking to drought shaming sites to tattle on each other for wasting water.

Residents are using the sites to out each other for reasons including neighbors with leaky sprinklers to waiters who serve water without asking as the state's historic drought continues.

The tattling has also reached social media where residents are using the hashtags 'droughtshaming' and 'watershaming' to reveal any water-wasting activities.

An app called DroughtShame was even developed to 'capture geotagged photo proof of disregard for California's water restrictions'.

California plans taking farms for massive water tunnels
Associated Press

 Aug 17, 2015
 Ellen Knickmeyer

Gov. Jerry Brown’s plans for massive water tunnels have yet to win approval, but a report shows California already is planning to take up to 300 farms to acquire land for the project.

A 160-page report prepared by state contractors lays out plans to move rapidly to eminent domain to acquire land for two 30-mile-long tunnels.

The tunnels would help ferry water from Northern and Central California to Southern California.

Crystal Geyser bottling plant draws lawsuit -

August 25, 2015

An environmental group opposed to a bottling plant near Mount Shasta filed a lawsuit accusing Crystal Geyser of pushing through an illegal plan to suck thousands of gallons of water a day from an aquifer that feeds the drought-diminished Sacramento River.

California sinking faster than thought, aquifers could permanently shrink

 8/25/2015

California is sinking even faster than scientists had thought, new NASA satellite imagery shows. Some areas of the Golden State are sinking more than 2 inches per month, the imagery reveals. Though the sinking, called subsidence, has long been a problem in California, the rate is accelerating because the state's extreme drought is fueling voracious groundwater pumping.

"Because of increased pumping, groundwater levels are reaching record lows — up to 100 feet (30 meters) lower than previous records," Mark Cowin, director of California's Department of Water Resources, said in a statement. "As extensive groundwater pumping continues, the land is sinking more rapidly, and this puts nearby infrastructure at greater risk of costly damage."

What's more, this furious groundwater pumping could have long-term consequences. If the land shrinks too much, and for too long, it can permanently lose its ability to store groundwater, the researchers said. The state's sinking isn't new: California has long suffered from subsidence, and some parts are now a few dozen feet lower than they were in 1925, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Growing Number Believe California’s Drought Is A Government Conspiracy

“Climate engineering is the single greatest assault on the environment ever launched by humanity, without question"

 by CBS Sacramento | September 23, 2015

There is a growing, underground movement of people who believe California’s drought is part of a government conspiracy instead of a naturally occurring event from a lack of rain during the last four years.

The movement’s leader, Dane Wigington, says he’s putting his life on the line to reveal a truth that will shake society to its core.

From the outside, it’s clear the hundreds showing up beat to a different drum. But stepping inside a packed Redding auditorium is like walking into another world. Outlandish ideas like weather warfare and climate engineering—in other words, weather control—are accepted as basic fact.

“Climate engineering is the single greatest assault on the environment ever launched by humanity, without question,” he said.

California Drought: Massive Reservoir Goes Bone Dry Overnight
California is stuck in a drought of epic proportions

 by Sputnik | September 26, 2015

The Mountain Meadows reservoir in Northern California dried up completely in the blink of an eye, leaving thousands of dead fish — and residents baffled.

Residents say people were fishing in the reservoir, also known as Walker Lake, just this past weekend. Then the entire lake drained, as if someone had unplugged a bathtub, in one night.

California is stuck in a drought of epic proportions, further compounded by years of sparse snowfall in the Sierra Nevadas that have left reservoirs across the state at record lows.

For resident Eddie Bauer, who has lived next to Walker Lake his whole life, the drained reservoir was a sight he had never seen before, the local CBS station reported.

Bauer was shocked because he, along with regional officials, thought the reservoir had had two weeks worth of water left. This would have given time for the Pacific Gas & Electric Company, who owns the rights to the water for a hydroelectric dam run on the reservoir, enough time to relocate the fish.

Instead, Bauer and other residents now see thousands of rotting dead fish baking in the sun where the reservoir used to be.

“This makes me feel like they didn’t want to do a fish rescue and that it was easier to open that sucker up Saturday Night,” Bauer said.

PG&E official Paul Moreno said that the water was not intentionally drained. He told CBS that in March, PG&E realized there would not be enough water to sustain the lake for the whole year, so they stopped using the water to generate power. Outflows from the lake were cut, but not shut off completely due to concern for fish further downstream.

Drought: 1 Bel Air Home, 12 Million Gallons Per Year

 Daniel Nussbaum
2 Oct 2015

As millions of California residents cut back on water use to fight the drought, one homeowner has apparently not received the memo.

According to the Center for Investigative Reporting’s Revealnews.org, one home in Bel Air used a whopping 11.8 million gallons of water in one year, good enough to make the home the largest known residential water user in the state.

For perspective, one million gallons is enough water to serve the needs of eight households for a year, making the near-12 million gallons used by the Bel Air home enough to serve the needs of roughly 100 households. RevealNews estimates the home spent more than $90,000 on its water bill last year.

The website’s investigation found that 365 households in California, most located in posh areas of Los Angeles, San Diego and the Bay Area, had used more than one million gallons of water each last year. Of those, 73 used more than three million gallons, and 14 used more than six million gallons. Water agencies have reportedly refused to identify the so-called “mega-users,” citing privacy concerns.

Meanwhile, the rest of the state has drastically cut its water use to comply with Gov. Jerry Brown’s order for a mandatory statewide reduction of 25 percent by early next year. On Thursday, the State Water Resources Control Board announced California had met Brown’s target for a third straight month in August, following solid cuts in July and June.

But million-gallon guzzlers are not playing by the same rules as everyone else. Los Angeles homeowner David Wilson told RevealNews that he recently received a $600 ticket for watering his lawn on the wrong day of the week. While Wilson says a sprinkler malfunction was responsible, his name and address were reportedly publicized by the city as part of an effort to identify water waters.

“That’s asinine,” Wilson told RevealNews when shown a list of the number of California’s mega-users. “These are the people that people should be going after.”

“Looking at the list that you’ve provided….I’m actually shocked by the amount of water that can be used in a single-family residence,” Natural Resources Defense Council analyst Tracy Quinn told the outlet. “It’s appalling.”

In Los Angeles, there is little that water agencies can do to force these mega-users to cut back, because, as Department of Water and Power assistant general manager Martin Adams told RevealNews, “there’s no ordinance on the books in L.A. to go after an individual customer strictly for their use.”

However, at least two water agencies–one in Oakland and another in the Coachella Valley–have recently begun imposing fees for excessive water use. Penalties in Oakland begin when a customer pumps over 359,000 gallons of water in a year.

If there’s a reason water agencies won’t name the state’s biggest wasters, perhaps another Center for Investigative Reporting report from last year holds the answer: in 2013, at least 26 public officials, including water and utility officials, used more than double the amount of water the average household uses.
