COVID 19… The CHINESE virus, Take 2

The overwhelming response to my earlier post was positive.  Now I will address a couple of things people took issue with.  For the one idiot who just wouldn’t give up:  You have been blocked and I will no longer see your emails.  If you need solar help, go to the forum of your choice and believe everything they tell you.  I will no longer help you.

CHINESE Virus…  Why?  Because it came from there and not only that, China is the most dangerous enemy we have in the entire world.  The list of things they have done to us is LONG.  I’m not going to repeat them.  If you can’t use Google, I can’t help you.  It is my opinion that this virus was an intentional act.  They care nothing about their own people and taking down our economy or at the very least hurting Donald Trump is the goal.  We must bring our manufacturing back and to think that we can trust anything they make is insane.  The COVID 19 test kits have not been reliable.  Masks and respirators have failed tests and other countries have rejected them.  China’s government is hell bent on destroying our economy.  I do have compassion for the Chinese people, but they will have to help themselves.

I made the point that Finland has few deaths and while it is no longer tiny, it is still a small % of the population.  So is Sweden and Norway.  Here we have a huge number of recoveries and our news refuses to talk abut it.  This is about fear and control, not truth.

I am going to repeat this because my own life has been changed by alternative medicine, including NAET therapy:  A friend who used it to solve her allergy problems was told by her allergist that our Chiropractor and NAET Therapy specialist was a quack.  A direct quote of how she responded: “Tell me how it is that I stopped taking my allergy medications three weeks ago and I am well for the first time I can remember….”

Now read the following to dispel some rumors about “killing” the virus.  Take note that a virus is not a living thing and an antibacterial product is not the thing to be trusting.

Johns Hopkins University has sent this excellent summary to avoid contagion, share it because it is very clear:

* The virus is not a living organism, but a protein molecule (DNA) covered by a protective layer of lipids (fats) which, if absorbed by the cells of the ocular, nasal or mouth mucosa, changes their genetic code. (mutation) and converts them into multiplier and attacker cells.

* Since the virus is not a living organism but a protein molecule, it is not killed, but decays on its own. The disintegration time depends on the temperature, humidity and the type of material in which it is found.

* The virus is very fragile; the only thing that protects it is a thin outer layer of fat. That’s why any soap or detergent is the best remedy, because the foam BREAKS THE GREASE (that’s why you have to rub so much: for at least 20 seconds or more, and make a lot of foam). By dissolving the fat layer, the protein molecule disperses and breaks down on its own.

HEAT melts the fat; then use water above 25C (or about 80F) degrees to wash your hands, clothes and everything else. In addition, hot water produces more foam which makes it even more useful.

* Alcohol or any mixture with alcohol greater than 65% DISSOLVES ANY FAT, especially the external lipid layer of the virus.

* Any mixture with 1 part of bleach and 5 parts of water directly dissolves the protein, breaks it down from the inside.

* Hydrogen peroxide helps a lot after soap, alcohol and chlorine, because peroxide dissolves the proteins of the virus, but you have to use it pure and it hurts the skin.

NO BACTERICIDES. The virus is not a living organism like bacteria; one cannot kill with antibiotics what is not alive, but rapidly disintegrate its structure with all that has been said.

* NEVER shake used or unused clothing, sheets or clothing. While it is glued on a porous surface, it is very inert and disintegrates only between 3 hours (fabric and porous), 4 hours (copper, because it is naturally antiseptic; and wood, because it removes all moisture and does not let it detach and disintegrates), 24 hours (cardboard), 42 hours (metal) and 72 hours (plastic). But if you shake it or use a duster, the virus molecules float in the air for up to 3 hours and can settle in your nose.

Viral molecules remain very stable in external or artificial cold like air conditioners in homes and cars. They also need moisture to remain stable and especially darkness. Therefore, dehumidified, dry, warm and bright environments will degrade it more quickly.

* UV LIGHT on any object that may contain it breaks the virus protein. For example, to disinfect and reuse a mask is perfect. Be careful, it also breaks down collagen (which is a protein) in the skin, eventually causing wrinkles and skin cancer.

* The virus CANNOT go through healthy skin.

* Vinegar is NOT useful because it does not break the protective layer of fat.

NO ALCOHOL or VODKA. The strongest vodka is 40% alcohol and you need 65%.

 

We will continue to go outside for exercise and to town when we need to buy things.  Our small town is not afraid and is getting very close to defying the governor’s directive that is destroying our local economy.  That governor is a democrat…  SURPRISE!

 

COVID 19… The CHINESE virus…

Please share this with everybody you know.  I composed it for my Congressmen and want to somehow get it to our President.

I believe it is time for some common sense to be used. Some research will prove that as of March 29 over 250,000 people worldwide who were tested and found to have the virus have recovered, while less than a fifth of that number have died from it. We have to realize that many more people who had mild symptoms and recovered on their own were never tested and therefore are not in these statistics.  By the way, any guesses you see about the number of these are only guesses and not to be taken seriously.  I believe my wife and I who are both over 65 may be in that statistical group after fighting off a similar sounding disease around Christmas time.  I hope that an antibody test becomes readily available so I can prove this.

We stayed at home for Christmas, canceling a holiday with my wife’s elderly mother so we would not spread it to her and the residents of her retirement home.  Nobody needed to tell us to do what simply made sense. Yes it is serious, but compared to the seasonal flu it is no worse and may even be less dangerous. Why are we panicking? This about a lot more than a virus. It is a world wide attempt to destroy our world and that is not just a conspiracy theory. Ask yourself who stands to gain from us shutting our economy down.  War may be next.  Let’s prevent that.

It is time to stop the hysteria and get our country back on the road to recovery. We should continue the new social distancing practice that those of us with common sense have already been doing every flu season. We also need to work to protect the more susceptible such as residents of retirement homes, but to be paranoid about working and going out in public is not warranted. Ask yourself if your local USPS, UPS and FedEx drivers have died. Are the trucks running and is food getting to the stores? We are being manipulated into this panic and it has to stop.

The overwhelming response I am getting from this is positive.  To those of you who want links, find them for yourself.   I have found that truth seldom lasts nowadays on the internet, so any links I put up will most likely not work for long.  Just recently a story about heat killing viruses was taken down in only two days, yet it is true and the death rate in Finland where sauna is a way of life is extremely low, something like .0014% of confirmed cases.  Why would this be taken down?  The claim was that it could get people killed.  My theory is that it will hurt the medical and pharma industries and some will take this to mean that I am a conspiracy believer.  There are several live web sites reporting a running total of cases, deaths and recoveries, but you will NOT find the likes of our media reporting them.  Our media has mostly turned into enemies of the state.

This is a very old link that may just survive.  My chiropractor told me.  Most will not believe it, but I do from personal experience:

Welcome to HandyBob Solar

If you are new to this,  I recommend starting with the “About our Boondocking Life” page to see how this all started. I am not a “blogger” who constantly posts. This blog is intended to educate, not to be used as a discussion forum.  Simply put; if you post questions here they will not be answered.  Last, if you feel that I have helped you to save your money, take a look at my page: The Money Question.  Please read my FAQ’s and look at my most recently dated pages before contacting me.  There is where I will post the latest things. Tapping the circle to the left will open the comments that have been left if you are interested.

The following are links to places I recommend that you look for more information.  Insert the usual warning here.  You must temper everything you find with common sense.  There is both good and bad everywhere you look and I cannot keep up with everything anybody else says.  My opinions follow.  Some may not agree, but I speak from experience, not what somebody else told me.  If a link doesn’t work try copying & pasting the link into your browser or just do a Google search.  These things are finicky.  I DO NOT APPROVE ANY ADVERTISING THAT GOOGLE ATTACHES TO THIS BLOG.  THEY WANT $30 PER YEAR TO BLOCK ADS.

Added in 2018:  BIG NEWS!  Finally I think there is somebody out there that deserves my recommendation.  His name is Eddie and from what I can tell after looking at his blog plus talking with him, he adheres to the same principles I do.  Look here: https://wyominggypsysmobilehomesteading.wordpress.com/2015/09/30/mobile-homestead-solar-services/

Here is a direct link to the solar portion of a very well written blob about living off grid and being prepared.  These folks are amazing and did the best job of breaking this down for the average person that I have ever seen.

OFF-GRID SOLAR POWER

Here is a sailing guy who did an excellent job of explaining how batteries work.  His last comment about Lithium is wrong and he admits that now.  https://sagittacatamaran.blogspot.com/2014/02/boat-electricity.html?m=0

http://cuernoverdesolar.wordpress.com  Kelly’s Blog..A friend / former customer who also does not own a generator.

http://kingsvista.wordpress.com  An interesting blog about off grid RV life by another friend / former customer.

http://www.jackdanmayer.com  Some good solar & RV info from the big rig side of the RV life.  Look here if you are made of money.  Some of the info here is not correct and we do not agree on everything.  It is up to you to think.

http://bogartengineering.com  Manufacturer of the Trimetric, the only battery monitor to buy.

http://www.magnumenergy.com  The best alternative energy inverter manufacturer and located here in the US.

http://www.morningstarcorp.com  The manufacturer of the widest variety and the best inexpensive charge controllers on the planet.  A company that is dedicated to making things that actually work.  Very unusual today.  (No cooling fans needed!  Absolutely silent.)

https://www.crownbattery.com  I believe these to be the best after buying them for two off grid homes and installing in several RV’s  These people have the alternative energy market in their sights.  Look at the latest catalog.  Look to Crown for AGM’s made in the USA.  They added a new production line and hired 25 new people to run it.  Probably the best AGM’s you can buy today.

http://backwoodssolar.com  These folks have a catalog available that has a LOT of good information in it.  Their web site also has a learning center with a lot of valuable information and battery diagrams.  Great service & friendly advice.  (I am adding this comment in 2015…  After having some very unsatisfactory dealings with other suppliers I need to say that buying for the lowest price is fine if you know what you are doing, but if you believe the advice you get at nearly every other dealer you are risking failure.  I won’t list their names here, but be very, very careful.)  Even here you need to balance what you are told with what the profit motive might be in selling you the latest MPPT controller that doesn’t work as promised.  (My MidNite page explains why I added this comment in April of 2015.)  Highest price does not guarantee highest quality.  Sometimes it is very surprising that exactly the opposite can be true.

https://therecklesschoice.com/category/systems/solar/  Finally, somebody who did a nice installation and good guide for a reasonable system using the Trimetric 2030 controller and meter pair.  This is worth a look.

IF YOU WANT TO ASK QUESTIONS, THIS IS NOT THE PLACE TO DO SO.  You can email me after you have read the RV Battery Charging Puzzle, where my email address is included.

THIS IS THE SHOP OF ONE SOLAR GUY WHO CAN BE TRUSTED.  (This is an old picture.  Look at newer pages for newer info.) This little system powers construction tools, heat shrink gun, you name it. The batteries in that shed were 10 years old when the photo was taken and have since been retired.  They were charged daily at 14.8V with temperature regulation just like Trojan recommends.  The batteries in there now are six year old T105’s that were free. Most of you are probably looking for the “RV Battery Charging Puzzle”.  This is also good basic education for anyone who wants to go off grid in a cabin or small home.  My email address is shown there, but please don’t contact me with questions unless you have read the Puzzle.  You don’t have to read my rants under “The History”, but it explains how I ended up where I am today and gives some examples of recent solar system evaluations that demonstrate very well just how little has changed.  There are now a couple of RV Solar dealers doing working systems but  I will not recommend anybody yet.  Both of those companies will sell you nothing but MPPT, even when it does not make monetary sense on small RV systems.  MPPT does make sense on large systems only when you spend enough to get something like a Morningstar Tristar MPPT controller.   These dealers’ advertising make it very clear that they are not “low budget” installers. Many people think that when they see advertising that shows huge over built systems on the roofs of RV’s they are seeing proof that the company knows what they are doing. I believe that it proves just the opposite and that it is a bold statement about their real mission statement (to generate as much profit as they can).  You also need to think about the power line that goes into the building.  If they knew how to make solar power work, there would be a modestly sized solar array powering that building.  They buy solar panels cheaper than you can and the same tax break is available to them.  There is one guy in Quartzsite who put grid tied solar on his building, but that does not show that he knows how to charge batteries.  He does not.  The statement about having to add water every other day if you follow Trojan’s voltage recommendation came from that place.  His actions speak louder than words to me.  I met a new dealer in 2011 who lives off grid and yet he sells junk flush mount RV charge controllers at his booth.  Again proving that he either doesn’t know or doesn’t care. Many of the dealers also still tend to fall down on the job on things that I find unforgivable, like the missing wiring protection on one system that I reported on, the constant overloading of controllers, the continuing refusal to install big enough wiring for MPPT to really have a chance at working and the denial of how important temperature compensation is.  I’ll post it here first if this ever changes.  You should note that Morningstar believes so much in the value of temperature compensation that it is included at no extra cost on all of their small RV controllers.   They also include the remote temperature probe in  the box when you buy their new Tristar MPPT controller. I constantly see people attributing statements to me that I never made. For instance, I have never said that nobody needs a generator and I never told people to sell their generator.  I did say that WE don’t need one. Our back-up charger is our noisy Ford 7.3L truck & booster cables. It has only been used four times in over six years and one of those times was because of a failed solar panel.  In 2014 we bought a used generator out of an RV, but it may take years to get it running.  I filled the cylinder with oil and put it in storage.
