Hey good buddy, who all here remembers the chicken band craze of the 1970's?

Long before the internet there was another networking craze called CB radio. It lasted through pretty much the entire 70's. I got my start around 1970ish with a pair of GE Recon Walkie Talkies, later graduating to a 23 channel JC Penny Pinto Base Station xmas of 74. By then everyone and their uncle didn't have a CB so channels were clear and 40-50 mile contacts were common with 4 watts. I waited for my required CB license to show up before I made contacts.

By '76 the full on craze was underway, every home, car had CB's, even my dad had a CB in his car by then which he sometimes used to wake me up early as he headed to work (yep, I kept it on overnight😋. CB's were in the movies, songs, TV shows. As a teen I was still enjoying mine, talking to friends, making new friends but I also got my ham radio license that year and sold my trusty base station, which sold fast as radios were in high demand.

Was flipping through an old 1976 CB Times magazine this morning, one of the many CB mags that sprung up during that time, & wanted to share a bit from a letter to the editor:

"I'm writing this in a diner just off Radar Alley (Interstate 90) and my reffer's sittin outside while I relax over a cuppa hundred mile joe, I'm still chuckling over what a smokey pulled in Pennsylvania a hundred & fifty miles ago. I was on the hammer with a good buddy on my front door giving me an 'all clear' so we were both making time........"

he goes on telling about a cop pretending to be a trucker giving other truckers the ok to speed then pulling them over down the highway, those were the days.

Don't go changing

College Says Students May Have Sought COVID-19 Infection To Boost Plasma Donor Payout

Administrators at Brigham Young University's campus in southeastern Idaho say they are "deeply troubled" by reports that students may have intentionally tried to contract COVID-19, lured by blood donation centers that are paying a premium for plasma with COVID-19 antibodies.

"Students who are determined to have intentionally exposed themselves or others to the virus will be immediately suspended from the university and may be permanently dismissed," the university said in a statement issued Monday.

The school condemned the behavior, saying it is "actively seeking evidence of any such conduct among our student body."

Possible donation sites for BYU-Idaho students include the Grifols Biomat USA Rexburg location, whose website touts its close proximity to the BYU-Idaho campus in downtown Rexburg. The company's site has a page devoted to survivors of COVID-19 as part of its effort to collect convalescent plasma.

"As a special thanks, those who give convalescent plasma will earn $100 per visit," the company says. It also says that for people who have recovered from the disease, "As your body produces more to maintain your immunity, you can potentially donate multiple times."

In recent months, the company has been offering $50 to new plasma donors, with progressively higher amounts for people making multiple donations within a month.

knowing now that these MI terrorist militia groups planned on carrying out an armed attack on the

capital building I wonder if the state police will allow them to run rampant inside the Capital again like they did in May?

So Biden suspended his anti-tRump ads when trump went to the hospital but listening to MSNBC

right now and nothing but lying anti Biden ads from the tRump campaign. I hope Biden reconsiders and starts his ads back up to counter tRumps lies.
