Madison, Indiana - April 1974

Soon after the Depauw tornado lifted, the Hanover/Madison F4 twister formed near Henryville and traveled through Jefferson County and leveled many structures in the small towns of Hanover and Madison. Eleven were killed in this storm while an additional 300 were injured. According to a WHAS-TV Louisville reporter in a special report about the outbreak, 90% of Hanover was destroyed or severely damaged, including the Hanover College campus. Despite the fact that no one was killed or seriously injured at the college, 32 of the College's 33 buildings were damaged, including two that were completely destroyed and six that sustained major structural damage. Hundreds of trees were down, completely blocking every campus road. All utilities were knocked out and communication with those off campus was nearly impossible. Damage to the campus alone was estimated at about US$10 million. In Madison alone where seven of the fatalities took place, about 300 homes were destroyed and the tornado also brushed the community of China causing additional fatalities. The same storm would later strike the Cincinnati area, producing multiple tornadoes including another F5.

Blood Pressure Monitor

With a visit to my doctor I found my blood presser was very high. He recommended I buy a home monitor, keep a record for a week and report back. I'm happy to report with a pill or two my BP is normal. I will keep a watch on it with this easy to use monitor. I bout it at CVS Drug store, but there are many other places to purchase one and at different prices. Nothing beats a doctor visit but a monitor can alert you of a problem......Jack

If its not broke - don't fix it

I uploaded a video to You Tube today and was made to do this Google thing. Now the video I uploaded is in a separate account. So now it is listed all by it's self and away from all of my other videos. As far as I can see there is no way to combine the two accounts. When trying to fix it, everything I click on leads me round and round. I can not even log into my old account, if I could I could delete the new video and upload it to the old account. I just can't understand why If its not broke - don't fix it..... Jack

Robert "Bob" Lazar

Robert "Bob" Lazar
Robert "Bob" Lazar (born January 26, 1959) is a controversial individual who claims qualifications as a scientist and engineer and alleged that he worked with extraterrestrial technology at a site called S4 near the Area 51 test facility.
Lazar claimed to have worked in 1988 and 1989 as a physicist at S4 allegedly located at Papoose Lake southwest of top secret Area 51 near Groom Dry Lake, Nevada. According to Lazar, S4 serves as a hidden military location for the study and research of extraterrestrial spacecraft, or flying saucers using reverse engineering. Lazar says he saw nine different extraterrestrial vehicles there and has provided detailed information on the mode of propulsion and other technical details of a disc-shaped vehicle he called the sport model.

Why Cell Phone Networks Fail in Emergencies

Cellular networks in the area almost immediately slowed down and, for periods of time, appeared to stop working altogether. Runners and their loved ones could not connect, and victims had trouble communicating with emergency responders.

I have not had a virus in two years but tonight broke the running record. I won't go into details on what web site i downloaded from (no it was not a porn site) but it was one that I should not have been looking at. The virus was called "Sirefef.gen !c" and it shuts off your virus protective program and redirects your Firefox and Internet Explorer to - well lets just say undesirable places - It also stops Google Chrome altogether. Malware Bytes would not remove it and I could not run Microsoft Essentials as it was shut off by the virus. I found a removal program from Panda, on another computer, downloaded it to a flash drive then installed it on the infected computer. It run and after 3 restarts the virus was removed. Now I had to remove Microsoft  Essentials with add and remove programs from the control panel. I then tried to find the "official Microsoft download site" and this was a challenge because the scammers have invaded Google with their bogus Microsoft pages. I finally found the official page and downloaded / installed the program. It installed fine and now runs like it should again. By the way I will save you some time, here is the correct address. 
This process to remove the virus took over an hour and lots of hair pulling. Be careful, The scammers and Malware boys are out to get you. They got me........ Jack

At approximately 16:15 CST on Tuesday November 7, 2006, federal authorities at Chicago O'Hare International Airport received a report that a group of twelve airport employees were witnessing a metallic, saucer-shaped craft hovering over Gate C-17.
The object was first spotted by a ramp employee who was pushing back United Airlines Flight 446, which was departing Chicago for Charlotte, North Carolina. The employee apprised Flight 446's crew of the object above their aircraft. It is believed that both the pilot and co-pilot also witnessed the object.

Photo Pos Pro

I work for a few companies that require photo editing. I know that everyone knows the keyword Photo Shop ($700), but this program is very expensive and complete overkill for most people. I use a program in my work that is no longer available but I found another that is very similar  and has a very short and easy learning curve and the best part, "It is free". I take lots of photos and have for some time but even with this experience I can use a photo editor to enhance most. An example would be, a couple in the center but a trash can to the left of them. No problem, just remove the can and replace it with a nice greenish shrub. Lighten, darken or make the sky more blue. .........Jack
The perfect FREE Photo Editor for you! Photo Pos Pro is an advanced yet extremely user-friendly and easy to use digital photo editing software. Photo Pos supports advanced enhancing, editing and computer graphics, special effects, layers, vectorial objects, masks, brushes, and much more!
See and download it here    Click no on all the tool bar junk when you install it.

Ham Radio - what do you talk about ?

I received an email asking, "Just what do you talk about on Ham Radio"? This is a hard question to answer as people are so different. Some are introverts and others are extroverts, it is the same on Ham Radio. Some Hams join in with a group that meet regularly on a certain frequancy, such as 3.910 on the 75 meter band.  This would be the same as a group of people meeting at a club or restraint. Then there are the Hams that only work DX (distance) These try to talk to as many countries as possible. The exchange is very short, such as "TA2RD WB9OTX your are 59 Indiana, 73.
An   introvert may never speek a word but only type on a computer keyboard. There are many digital modes such as JT65, EME, and others.I have known Hams that after studding for a long time, taking the test and receiving their license never ever keying the transmitter but only listen. I never could understand why they got a license in the first place.
I like to do all facets of our hobby, I do the DX, digital, and just like to have a friendly conversation with others across town or on the other side of the planet. I may ask, where do you work, how many kids do you have, how long have you been on the air, what kind of antenna are you using, and on and on.
So Ham Radio has something for about everyone. By the way if you want to become a Ham there are classes to make it very easy to obtain your ticket. See the RCARC Ham Radio Club page. or the ARRL page. ............ Jack WB9OTX
