Simple, effective – and definitely a money saver, because you don’t have to toss loads of food unnecessarily.

Why You Should Always Put A Coin In The Freezer Before You Leave Home

Have you ever come home from vacation, business trip or maybe a weekend away with the family – and noticed your digital clocks flashing the wrong time?You quickly realize that you had a power outage while you were away, but it’s basically impossible to tell when it occurred or how long it lasted. It’s therefore also impossible to tell just how long the food in your freezer may have thawed, gotten destroyred, and then frozen again.

Or is it?

In connection with Hurricane Matthews which swept over parts of the United States, a woman named Sheila Pulanco Russell shared a clever trick on her Facebook wall with anyone who was forced to evacuate their home.

But the trick is certainly also good to know in case of any prolonged departure from your home – and will ease your mind about whether or not the food in your freezer is good to eat – or best be thrown out right away.

The trick lies in the magical combination of three simple but effective tools everyone already has at home: a mug, a coin and some tap water.

In a Facebook post which quickly received hundreds of thousands of reactions and shares, Sheila explains how to proceed. She writes:

“For those of you that are evacuating from the coast, I just heard a great tip. It’s called the one cup tip. You put a cup of water in your freezer. Freeze it solid and then put a quarter on top of it and leave it in your freezer. That way when you come back after you’ve been evacuated you can tell if your food went completely bad and just refroze or if it stayed frozen while you were gone.

If the quarter has fallen to the bottom of the cup that means all the food defrosted and you should throw it out. But if the quarter is either on the top or in the middle of the cup then your food may still be ok. It would also be a great idea to leave this in your freezer all the time and if you lose power for any reason you will have this tip to fall back on.

If you don’t feel good about your food, just throw it out. The main thing is for all to be safe. Please SHARE this on your page. 😀”

Please share this nifty trick on to all your friends!

A pet shop owner had a parrot with a sign on its cage that said “Parrot repeats everything it hears”. Davey bought the parrot and for two weeks he spoke to it and it didn’t say a word. He returned the parrot but the shopkeeper said he never lied about the parrot.

How can this be?

An NBC news report from 2013 claimed that Hillary Clinton, while secretary of state, shut down an investigation into an elite pedophile ring in State Department ranks in order to avoid scandal and protect the careers of high ranking officials and an ambassador.

NBC News: Hillary Clinton 'Covered Up' Pedophile Ring At State Department

Flashback to June 11th, 2013 when NBC was reporting real news.

The NBC investigation even provided internal State Department memos to back up claims of a massive Hillary Clinton elite pedophile ring cover-up.

Watching the video below is a little strange. It is a stark contrast to the way the Mainstream Media reports news today. Matt Lauer and Chuck Todd actually sound like they are reporting the news. Major media outlet reporting today has become nothing more than weaponized propaganda and a partisan extension of the Democrat party aimed at destroying Trump and his administration.

The Video

This video was posted back in 2013. I did some digging and it looks like they either didn’t make an article for it on the NBC news site or they removed it since it doesn’t follow their narrative now.

Excerpts From The Video

Serious allegations concerning the State Department,” the NBC anchor announced, before launching into the disturbing details that mainstream media would be unable to report on in 2017.

According to internal State Department memos the agency might have called off or intervened into investigations into possibly illegal, inappropriate behavior within it’s ranks allegedly to protect jobs and avoid scandals.

This concerns a time when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.

“There is an old saying in Washington that the cover-up is worse than the crime. But in this case both parts of it are disturbing”, Chuck Todd continued.

Allegations of prostitution and pedophilia, and allegations that those crimes were somehow covered up or not looked into. So the State Department this morning is having to respond to those claims, and those investigations involve misconduct by State Department officials, including an Ambassador and security agents attached to then secretary of state, Hillary Clinton.

The allegations are that these investigations were whitewashed, quashed altogether, and that those orders came from high up.

NBC has obtained documents relating to ongoing investigations into some disturbing allegations involving State Department personnel and at least one ambassador. A State Department memo says, quote, “the Ambassador routinely ditched his protective security detail in order to solicit sexual favors from both prostitutes and minor children.

The memo also says a top State Department official directed State Department investigators to “cease the investigation” into the ambassador’s conduct.” It’s just one of what another document describes as “several examples of undue influence” from top State Department officials.

The Washington Examiner and Breitbart have both ran stories about the cover up at the State Department under Hillary Clinton.

A former senior investigator with the State Department’s criminal investigative unit has turned whistleblower and alleged to both the media and Congress that senior staff within State Department covered up investigations into appalling behavior committed by members of Hillary Clinton’s security staff and our ambassador to Belgium. One of those alleged to have interfered was Cheryl Mills, Hillary’s chief of staff.

The case in which Clinton enforcer Mills allegedly intervened centered upon Brett McGurk, Obama’s nominee to be US ambassador to Iraq.

McGurk’s expected nomination fell apart after a computer hack exposed his racy e-mails and an extramarital affair with Wall Street Journal reporter Gina Chon.

According to the memo, the SID “never interviewed McGurk, allegedly because Cheryl Mills from the Secretary’s office interceded.”

“Without that interview, SID has been unable to close the case,” the memo concludes.

Mills is a longtime associate of the Clintons, going back to 1992, and was also at the center of the first scandal to hit Hillary’s State Department: Benghazi. Gregory Hicks, the former Deputy Chief of Mission in Libya, testified before Congress that Mills instructed him not to cooperate with the Congressional investigation into the September 11 terror attacks.

Mills isn’t the only high-ranking official being named. Patrick Kennedy, the Undersecretary of State for Management, is directly accused of killing an investigation into our Ambassador to Belgium, Howard Gutman, who is accused of slipping away from his security detail to solicit sex from minor children.

Gutman was a big Democratic donor before taking the post, having raised $500,000 for President Obama’s 2008 campaign and helping finance his inaugural.

At least seven agents in Clinton’s security detail hired prostitutes while traveling with her in various countries, including Russia and Colombia.

Investigators called the use of prostitutes by Clinton’s security agents “endemic.”

State Department Inspector General officials edited out passages of a high-profile report in 2013 that could have embarrassed Hillary Clinton just days before she quit President Obama’s Cabinet.

“One case, which triggered outraged comment from several [special investigations division] sources, relates to allegations that a Regional Security Officer engaged in serious criminal conduct including sexual abuse of local embassy staff during a series of embassy postings. Sources also reported that a senior [diplomatic security] official successfully protected some agents on the Secretary’s Detail from investigations into misbehavior while on official trips,” the November 16 draft said.

It is unclear why this critical text was stripped from the report before the inspector general published it in February 2013.

Another passage that was removed from the public report suggests officials in Clinton’s office may have protected an ambassador from a child abuse investigation.

“Sources reported that a senior ‘7th Floor’ Department official ordered [diplomatic security] to stop the investigation of an ambassador accused of pedophilia, and another such senior official had [diplomatic security] stop an investigation of an ambassador-designate,” the draft reads.

The seventh floor is the location of the secretary of state’s office, as well as the offices of the deputy secretary and the undersecretaries, according to the State Department’s website. If any of these details were removed because of exculpatory information, this is never stated.

The same section of the final report, titled “Need for Independence,” makes no reference to the pedophilia allegations or the sexual abuse charges that were covered up by State Department staff.

 

Update

The contents and the layout of this post have been updated to address Leftist and Never Trumpers claims that it is Fake News and Clickbait. They obviously never took the time to watch the video.

Insane MINI COOPER Fitted With A Helicopter Jet ENGINE With 420HP & 400 ft-lb Torque!

MINI COOPER Fitted With A Helicopter Jet ENGINE

An all wheel drive Mini Cooper S with a Helicopter engine! It must be hot inside that car.

Would you dare to drive this thing?

Mini and Rolls Royce are subsidiaries of BMW. However, even though they are owned by the same company which is BMW, the two renowned British brands are not known to cross paths. That was until now. A company out of Texas that goes by the name of BMP Design has done the unimaginable. They have squeezed a Rolls-Royce 250-C20B Allison jet engine from a helicopter in a MINI Cooper S. This is definitely one of the most unusual car builds we have ever encountered. Imagine the feeling driving a small Mini Cooper car with a massive helicopter engine right behind your front seats. Nevertheless, the consequences of such a build are easy to assume.

This small Mini Cooper car now delivers staggering 420HP. The rear wheels are driven through a RR engine that delivers 400 ft-lb of torque power. This turns the Mini Cooper S into a 4WD demon! However, driving this little car is no easy task. The driver needs to possess the knowledge to balance the standard controls with the special levers that operate the jet engine. However, even though the title of this video insinuates that this car has 640HP, the guy demonstrating the car clearly says 420HP. Nevertheless, the acceleration and the speed of this small rocket are mind-blowing. The sound that the turbine engine is delivering is monstrous as well.

how-to-survive-an-earthquake

The Gulf Coast and East Coast have hurricanes, the Midwest and South have tornados, and the West Coast faces tsunami threats. No area of the country is without their own special brand of natural disaster to worry about. Earthquakes, however, span state lines, cross mountain ranges, and traverse climates. With the increased practice of deep wastewater disposal in the oil and gas industry, even the typically stable Midwest and central areas of the country are seeing an exponential rise in the number of earthquakes strong enough to get your house shaking (e.g., before 2009 there were an average of two magnitude 3+ earthquakes in Oklahoma; last year there were 907).

Surviving an earthquake starts far before the tremors begin, with careful preparation and planning. You should have enough food and water (a gallon per person per day) to last a minimum of three days, and communicate to friends and family where to meet and how to contact each other after an earthquake, assuming phone lines and electricity are down. Finally, take time to go through your house and secure tall, heavy pieces of furniture and appliances that might topple over. After an earthquake, be prepared to experience powerful aftershocks, and try to get to an open area as soon as it’s safe to do so. During an earthquake, the best survival techniques depend on your surroundings, so heed the tips above.

Joke Of The Day: Grandma's Secret Ham Recipe Suzanne was preparing a ham dinner. After she cut off the end of the ham, she placed it in a pan for baking. Her friend asked her, “Why did you cut off the end of the ham”?

She replied, “I really don’t know but my mother always did, so I thought you were supposed to.” Later when talking to her mother she asked her why she cut off the end of the ham before baking it, and her mother replied, “I really don’t know, but that’s the way my mom always did it.”

A few weeks later, while visiting her grandmother, Suzanne asked, “Grandma, why is it that you cut off the end of a ham before you bake it?”

Her grandmother replied, “Well dear, it would never fit into my baking pan.”
