Hi there everyone!! Well I had some work done to our website to secure it down some more and everything went well. The improvements were all behind the scenes and nothing will be noticed using the website. Which I am really happy about as no data was lost and there was no down time!! I still want to introduce the upgrade to improve the features of the community, but it is less serious now, since mostly I wanted security and to keep the site safe. But it will come! I am just delighted we are keeping on keeping on!! Read More...
I have begun work with having our website upgrade. This is a major event in the life of our awesome website. All work so far has been development work, meaning we are undergoing a number of upgrades and tests, without using our live website yet. I am trying very hard not to lose any data, while at the same time keep our live site up and running without interruption. If you notice anything unusual about your access or use of this great website, please let me know so it can be addressed. The upgrade is necessary for various security issues that have become problematic, as well as introducing a lot newer technologies to the site, meaning also a lot of new features. I do not think the design will change much, I know the last time we did this there was major design changes, but the design is very stable now, so it will continue mostly as it is. I am just not sure of exactly how the new features will integrate until I see them. Anyway thank you for your patience, I for one am very excited about this event!! Read More...
Got this from the head of our local CMA chapter Mark . Will keep you guys updated on this possible get together and ride.
We are starting to plan a Big Horn Mountain weekend for some time in July or August. Not sure what it will look like just yet, but initial thoughts are to have a cruiser route which does a highway loop, a dual-sport option running a bunch of the forest roads and possibly some two track routes for the quads. Hope to base out of one of the lodges where people can rent a room and others can pitch a tent if they want. Stay tuned as this all comes together.
Has everyone frozen to death? I know we had another round to winter storms here yeaterday. We had about 5" of snow, & now the weather is supposed to get near 0 dergees F. tonight. But spring will come!
Our chapter is supposed to be going to the Moto-Museum in St. Louis this Saturday, & have lunch at the Triumph Cafe. For anyone in the St. Louis area, we are meeting at St. Charles H-D at 9:30am. & you are more than welcome to join us!
Ride with a purpose, His!
Keep warm & God bless!
Haven't frozen to death , but it's pretty cold. I took this picture outside my back door this morning when I got up.
Looking forward to spring too .
Good morning and Happy New Year!! Awoke this morning here in Castle Rock Colorado and found some heavy snow on the ground, it's cold and very beautiful! Today is a laid back today for Tina and I, I am heading off to work early Sunday to Aruba for the next part of that job. I think the snow will be far behind me when I arrive there. Just there for a week this time. My bike is all winterized and covered up in the garage, maybe when I come home I can get on her for a quick ride, I am sure knowing Denver this snow will be long gone again, it can be 20 in the morning here and then 80 in the afternoon! I hope everyone is feeling great and excited about the new year, I know I am!! Read More...
Good morning on Ya ,
Doc , sounds like you've been a busy man. We just got a couple more inches of snow over night and it's snowing as I'm typing this.
I hope Everyone here at Prayerbiker.com has a Wonderful , Happy and Blessed Christmas . And with that I will leave you with a Christmas song.
Merry Christmas Prayer Bikers.
It's Saturday morning & the weather isn't too bad over here for the time of year -- T46F, windy, & some showers, but at least we don't have the snow & ice as yet! Have to do some preparation for the early Church service tomorrow -- it's a special "Mums & Tots" service, for all the 3 month to 3 year kids who come to the Church playgroup that my wife helps out. I'm supposed to be doing the opening & the m/c bit + some prayers, but the wife has already warned me to expect chaos! Be praying that we might be able to use the service to reach out to some of the mums who never darken the door of a Church, with Jesus message of hope & love at this Christmas time.
Hope all you Prayerbikers have a great weekend!
God Bless --- Doc.
Good Sunday morning to ya Doc ,
Praying everything goes smooth for your Mum's & Tots event .
Thank you for the First Aid Kit Advice , it was well taken .
Does it rain a lot where you are ?
We haven't gotten any more snow since we've talked last and the temps have gone back up to more normal winter temps ,however they say we have a 50% chance of snow on Thursday . I'm getting cabin fever , so after Christmas I'm going to buy some leather and horse hides to make some gun holsters and other projects over the winter .
Hope you've had a great weekend , God Bless ya.
Good Morning JT,
Hope you had a good night's sleep! I'm constantly amazed at the amount of information you have on such a wide variety of topics! You should have pursued a career as a researcher --- I'm sure you would have been a star! Until you mentioned it, I had never heard of "Fish antibiotics", although i was aware that fish farms used various chemicals to keep their breeding stock free of disease. I clicked the link you gave, & was amazed at the variety of "fish antibiotics" that were available to order, & I have to say, they cover the whole spectrum of antibiotics available to humans, & the dose strengths they offer also parallel those available for use on humans. It would seem unlikely that any ingredients toxic to humans would be added to the formula, so the main issue around using them in humans, would be the authenticity of the active drug present --- in other words, can you trust the seller/manufacturer to provide exactly what is stated on the label!
Over here in Europe, it is illegal to sell antibiotics without a doctor's prescription, & anyone offering online supplies (whether for fish, animals or human varieties) is subject to Jail +/- a $16,000 fine! The idea of that law is to stop people self-medicating, & ultimately contributing to antibiotic resistance getting worse than it already is.
Coming back to your original question, if those "fish antibiotics" have the active ingredients as stated on the label, then I suppose that they would work, in an emergency, although I wouldn't recommend going down that road without knowing a lot about the condition you were treating, + a fair bit about the best choice of antibiotic to do the job ----- not to mention a lot about side effects & inter-reactions with other medications you might be taking!
Hope that helps!
Have a good day --- Doc.
Hi Doc ,
Yes , your post has helped a lot , thank you so much for your insight on this topic .. I confess I'm not as good a researcher as you think , I got the idea watching a Survival TV show and another show called Dooms Day Preppers , Then I looked it up.
As I stated , I fully understand the dangers of taking or over taking antibiotics and it's not something I take lightly. But I've been thinking of getting a supply " Just for extreme Emergencies" , and would only be used in the case where something bad would happen and I couldn't get to a doctor. I will research what these antibiotics are for and what they treat , and then print it out to put with my First Aid Kit .We also have some Potassium Iodide tablets in case of a nuclear fallout . www.campingsurvival.com/nucprot.html .
I'd like to build a comprehensive First Aid Kit , that will cover a wide range of injuries . Any suggestions ? In the mean time I will buy some First Aid books to learn more about first aid. I have taken a few First aid courses in the past , but I've very rusty on them , I need to refresh my memory .
Personally , I hope I never need these things. But I like to be prepared....just in case ??
Good Evening JT,
Just been reading your post about folk being prepared for an an emergency ---- you are, of course right, we should be, but truth is, we mostly aren't, because there's something in human nature that always expects tomorrow to be much the same as yesterday, & the day before that etc. etc. ---- until, of course, something unexpected happens, & then we are full of regrets! .
Reminds me of that parable in Matthew 25, about the Kingdom of Heaven, which warns us to be prepared : you know the one ---- 10 virgins with their lamps awaiting the arrival of the bridegroom --- only 5 bothered to get the necessary oil, & when the bridegroom arrived unexpectedly, they were the only ones ready & able to be invited in to share the feast in the Kingdom. It ends by telling us to "Watch, therefore, as you know neither the day, nor the hour"!
I guess no one will catch you unprepared though! Keep on being prepared, brother!
God Bless --- Doc.
Thanks for the bible passage Doc ,
I think the reason so many people don't prepare is they think they can't afford to. But the truth is , they can. Just do it a little at a time. But 2 or 3 extra canned goods when you do your grocery shopping and put them away for emergency. Do this every time you grocery shop and you'll be surprised at how many emergency supply's you can build up. We also rotate out supply's , so they stay fresh.
Having emergency travel bags made up is also a must. You should have at least a weeks worth ( for every persons bag ) of food and other items in an emergency bag ready to take with you . Items like a water purification straws , or tables , a stainless steel or aluminum cup to heat water or food in and other things. This way if you have to leave your home in an emergency , you can grab your emergency bag as you head out the door.
I try to convince family and friends to prepare , but most don't want to hear it They think I'm nuts , maybe I am , but I'm prepared
Anyway , it makes for a great topic of discussion .If anyone would like to share their emergency preparation ideas with me , I'd love to hear them.
I'm well aware of the dangers of taking to many antibiotics , and would never take them unless my Doctor prescribed them for me. But I have a question.
In an "Extreme" emergency ( something big has happened and you can't even get treatment at a hospital ) , what do you think of treating a wound with Fish Antibiotics ? Many of the fish antibiotics found on the shelves in pet stores are the same as the antibiotics prescribed by doctors. So can you use them in an extreme emergency ? ( I'll have to ask my doctor the same question ). Example : search.campingsurvival.com/mod_search/de...x=15&submit.y=18 Read More...
