Dance Freddy Dance  <—LINK to the story

A story by Ted Dunlap; illustrated by his youngest daughter, Deedra.

Hover your cursor over the second title to activate the link to the pdf file.

TED: When I was a Daddy, I would tell bed-time stories to my daughters … made up on the spur of the moment, out of my head, just as my daddy did before me.

Fast forward a bunch of years to a mid-twenties daughter who needed artistic expression and purpose in her life.

So I wrote a story about my brother and asked her to illustrate it. This is our collaboration.

I am happy enough with the result that I fancy it could be a published book … if anyone could share with me how to take the next steps, I would appreciate that boost.

It already served its designed purpose.

Anything past that is gravy.

Bum Covers


I’m just not comfortable in leggings unless worn with a dress. I saw that this look is in and “shirt extenders” are sold for this purpose. So, I bought two new slips with lovely heavy lace (one to keep as a slip) and two thrift store shirts to copy the look. 



I started with these:


And I made these looks by shortening one slip and cutting the shirts across at the armholes and made elastic waistbands to wear them under a shirt and over the leggings:

Richard Dunlap Family Visit 2021

Ted’s son, Richard, & kids came for a visit!

Richard, Ted, Isaac, Kelsee, Marilyn, Mochi, Anthony & Scooter

They arrived in the afternoon and got a tour of our place and Rich noted that we had extra beds and inquired if some of the kids could sleep here. We enthusiastically accepted and the kids began stating their preferences.

Ted took them to dinner at Little Blue Joint. Marilyn and I had taquitos and salad for our dinner and I got beds ready while they were gone.

Isaac on trombone

Next morning, Ted and Isaac spent time on their trombones together while I made pancakes, bacon, and sausage and Kelsee made eggs, practicing her culinary art class techniques. I had Rich try the new morning hot drink I have and several of them like herbal teas and I had lots of choices for them.

Any time someone needed the wifi password, I assigned Anthony to read it to them. That chore came up several times and he was filling a need that he could do well.

I learned that Mochi (formerly Brinlee) is pesco-vegetarian (eats only fish) and wanted to make tortillas. So, I decided on pulled pork and a salmon steak for Mochi, corn, cole slaw and salad ingredients to add to the pulled pork tacos for our dinner. We decided what we needed from the store and I ran that errand.

Mochi went with the guys to the shooting range and they all had a ball firing a variety of firearms and sending rounds into targets. Anthony, the youngest, shot fast on the 22 rifle, his first time shooting, and when they moved him from paper targets to metal they could hear the 4 out of 5 tings of his rounds hitting, proving that he was on target. Ted was using some less than great ammo and Anthony, his brother and dad, all got great practice dealing with jams. Anthony quickly began handling them himself.

Isaac and Mochi also shot well and enjoyed the activity. Richard had his own 9 mm he wanted to practice with and shot amazingly well with that tool, particularly when you consider the targets were 35 yards away, compared to only 7 yards, a distance more commonly used for hand gun practice. Isaac took some video with his phone and I’m hoping to add a screen shot if I can get one from him or Rich.

They were three hours or more shooting and when they came in Isaac was ready for a snack. I had cream cheese and smoked salmon on wheat thins and that went over well.

Pastry Chef Kelsee

Chef Kelsee set her task making high end ice cream for our dessert. I fetched whatever she needed, mixing bowls, mixer, etc. Kelsee had her own recipes but I didn’t know how to load or run the ice cream machines and had a time finding a YouTube video that actually went that far, explaining how to layer the ice and rock salt. 

Mochi had already learned how to form tortilla dough into tortillas, so, from my recliner, all I had to do was coached her on the ingredients. She had no trouble shaping the dough with the food processor, shaping the tortillas, and frying them up on her own. She even made a second batch with white flour only, because she said Anthony would prefer them to the first batch that was half whole wheat.

Mochi, tortilla maker

By the time I found the information on how the ice cream maker was supposed to be operated, the first batch had already been started with all ice and only a little rock salt on top. Ted had fetched us more ice because the two bags I had purchased wasn’t going to be enough and the second batch went much better and faster layering the ice and rock salt (from the water softener). We scooped the finished ice cream into big bowls and put them in the freezer before dinner so they could freeze nice and solid.

Dinner was good and dessert was wonderful! I need to get the name of the special ingredient Kelsee made that was swirled into one batch of the ice cream and add it here. We had planned to cook a salmon steak for Mochi but she pulled the pork for us and ate it instead.

Isaac asked Ted about his music likes and Ted loaded an SD card with 2,000 of his favorites to take home. In the evening Ted showed Mochi his album collection and she selected Electric Light Orchestra which, when played, sparked Isaac and Kelsee into dance. Ted got it on video and I took a screen shot from it to post here.

There were many individual conversations and time spent with Marilyn. The first day and evening Marilyn was low functioning but she perked up for the remainder of their visit and received hugs and returned with smiles and even some responses. 

Anthony really took to both dogs (they have two chihuahua mixes at home) and at one point he noticed that both dogs were AWOL. I had let them out after dinner and called for them but no dogs came. Isaac went out and reported that the gate they had brought targets back from the range through was open. 

I had Ted fix my radio frequency, left the front gate open, and and drove all three directions but saw no dogs. Before I went to bed I asked Isaac to let them in if he heard them. I was in bed, but not asleep yet, when Isaac knocked on my door and let the dogs into my bedroom. Thank goodness, after a couple of hours, they returned on their own and Ted closed both gates before he came to bed.

Today, Ted fixed the gate that hadn’t closed last night allowing the dogs to escape. It has always been problematic, very difficult to close, and today, thankfully, he took the time for that repair. It wasn’t the first time they have escaped the yard and we’ve had to drive around looking for them. 

Kelsee made the last of the eggs we had on hand into rounds to put on english muffins with cheddar cheese and ham slices. We set out every possible thing someone could dress their muffins with and Richard brought chocolate milk. Everyone had whatever they wanted for a beverage and breakfast was relatively easy and yummy.

Kelsee said her mother, Tiffanie, has bronchitis and Maya (the youngest) stayed home with her. Savanna (second oldest) is returning from a trip with friends and that is why they couldn’t stay another day, had to get home to pick her up.

We thanked Richard over and over for bringing his family for a visit. After group photos and many hugs, they hit the road for home. We sure hope they come again soon with the whole family!

Canadian Viral Immunologist, Professors & Doctors Sound The Alarm on COVID-19 Vaccine Safety

By Arjun Walia
Collective Evolution

June 4, 2021


Dr. Bryam Bridle is a viral immunologist and professor at the University of Guelph. Bridle has been known for developing immunization strategies to prevent infectious diseases and treat cancers. He is very much a “pro-vaccine” scientist and has been for quite some time, and in his own words he teaches “the value of high quality, well-validated vaccines and passionately promotes their use. Vaccines are, by far, the most efficient type of medicine; the cost-effectively save millions of people from sickness and/or death.”

Bridle has made some noise due to a recent podcast appearance raising multiple safety concerns with regards to the new COVID-19 vaccines. Since then, Bridle has experienced what many other renowned scientists in the field have experienced, a vicious smear and character assassination campaign. This is according to an email I received from him,

“Such are the times that an academic public servant can no longer answer people’s legitimate questions with honest and based on science without fear of being harassed and intimidated. However, it is not in my nature to allow scientific facts to be hidden from the public.”

Articles written about these issues that present such information are constantly subjected to “fact checking” by Facebook affiliated fact checkers. They often receive a “fake news” rating when they are simply presenting evidence showing that more study is needed. This is censorship.

On the podcast, he stated that it’s been discovered by the scientific community that the COVID spike protein is almost entirely responsible for creating damage to the cardiovascular system, blood clotting and other potential problems if it gets into circulation. COVID-19 has a spike protein on its surface, and that protein is what allows it to infect our bodies which is why, according to Bridle, “we’ve been using the spike protein in our vaccines.” The vaccines we are using get our cells in our body to manufacture this protein in order to amount an immune response against this protein. This is the theory behind some COVID vaccines.

He explained that if you inject the purified spike protein into the blood of research animals, they get all kinds of damage to the cardiovascular system. Apparently, it can cross the blood brain barrier and cause damage to the brain. All of his claims have been cited with scientific sources which we linked near the end of this article.

Here’s a bit of what Bridle said via the podcast. Below this you will find a short brief himself and his colleagues have put together while they work on a more comprehensive report.

Now, at first glance that doesn’t seem too concerning because we’re injecting these vaccines into the shoulder muscle. The assumption is, all up until now, and has been that these vaccines behave like all of our traditional vaccines, that they don’t go anywhere other than the injection site. So they stay in our shoulder, some of the protein will go to the local draining lymph node in order to activate the immune system.

However, this is where the cutting edge science comes in and this is where it gets scary. Through a request for information from the Japanese regulatory agency, myself and several international collaborators have been able to get access to what’s called a bio-distribution study. It is the first time ever that scientists have been privy to seeing where these messenger RNA vaccines go after vaccination. In other words, is it a safe assumption that it stays in the shoulder muscle? The short answer is absolutely not, it’s very disconcerting.

The spike protein gets into the blood, circulates through the blood in individuals over several days post vaccination. It accumulates in a number of tissues such as the spleen, the bone marrow, the liver, the adrenal gland, and the ovaries in high concentration. The spike protein was found in the blood, in circulation in 3 of 13 healthcare workers who received the vaccine.

What this means is, we’ve known for a long time that the spike protein is a pathogenic protein. It is a toxin, it can cause damage in our body if it gets into circulation. Now we have clear cut evidence that the vaccine that makes the cells in our deltoid muscles that manufacture this protein, that the vaccine itself plus the protein gets into blood circulation. When in circulation the spike protein can bind to the receptors that are on our platelets and the cells that line our blood vessels, that’s exactly why we’ve seen clotting disorders associated with these vaccines, it can also lead to bleeding and of course the heart is involved that’s why we’re seeing heart problems. The protein itself can also cross the blood brain barrier, it can cause neurological damage.

He went on to emphasize that these findings also call into question the potential long term health consequences of the vaccine, which is a concerning thought. If someone dies a year from now, or five years from now as a result of this vaccine, odds are that it will never be linked to the vaccine and claims will remain ‘unsubstantiated.’ Will we ever really know? Even today, cases of people who die shortly after COVID-19 vaccine administration are considered unrelated to the vaccine in mainstream news coverage. We are often told that ‘no link is found,’ but could we be missing something here?

Bridle and is colleagues in the Canadian COVID Care Alliance (CCCA), a group of independent Canadian doctors, scientists, and professionals aiming to provide evidence-based information about COVID-19, recently put out a brief report that outlines the science explained in the podcast above. The group is expected to release a more extensive document that will dive into broader and deeper details about issues related to COVID-19 vaccines and youth. You can access the report here if you’re interested in sharing it with others.

The Takeaway: No matter what science is being presented or how much evidence is available to warrant a serious and open discussion on the safety of COVID vaccines, the concerns being raised never seem to be taken objectively by mainstream media or the public domain.

Instead, they are subjected to extreme amounts of censorship and ridicule, something we’ve seen happen to many scientists and doctors in the field, including many of the world’s most renowned experts in the field. The COVID pandemic has unleashed a massive campaign of scientific censorship unlike anything we’ve ever seen before, and it begs the question, why?

Why is discussion and science being suppressed and in some cases falsely “debunked” simply because it calls into question the official narrative we are receiving from governments and pharmaceutical companies? Do governments and big corporations truly have our best interests at heart? Do they act from an intent to do good for all? Do they have other motivations? Why can’t we have open and transparent discussions about “controversial” topics?

The free press is here to hold government accountable and serve the people, not be censored by government.


Alert The “Vaccine” Is a Bioweapon – 5 Doctors Testify

Mainstream media, mainstream medical, big pharma, all government … let’s just call them “the usual suspects” do not want you to watch this video.

It is crucial to your health and those around you that you do indeed watch it. I absolutely guarantee it will be worth it.

I have another related one I will share at Bitterroot Bugle, but not now. I do not want to distract from this one in any way. I’ll put it up tomorrow. Watch this one first and foremost. The other one is short and related.

Below I share the entire article from the source where I found it. Come back to those links and the text later. FIRST, watch the five doctors share critical, crucial information that includes their hopeful outlooks at the end.

I will add to the embedded links one the doctors here created and mention during the video: Millions Against Medical Mandates (MAMM). It is another you should come back to after watching the video below.

Note: neither passivity nor ignorance will enable survival … and no quantity or quality of guns and ammo will be of much use. It is your body, your family, your community and your world. All are at stake now. Arm yourself first with knowledge.

A key tidbit throughout this discussion is that nobody is going to save you from this. No amount of government change will deliver anything new or helpful. There is no white knight coming to save the world. It is up to us: we the thinkers, do-ers and devotees of personal responsibility.

April 30, 2021:  Dr. Carrie Madej: Covid Shots, DNA & Transhumanism!

How to Report a Vaccine Injury Online or by Mail – Anyone can submit a Vaccine Injury to VAERS, including patients, family members, healthcare providers, and vaccine manufacturers, even if it isn’t clear if the vaccine caused the health problem.

HEALTH IMPACT NEWS -  Ever since reports have surfaced in recent days that people who have chosen NOT to receive the experimental COVID-19 shots but have been exposed to those who have received them, and have suffered what appear to be infections coming from these fully "vaccinated" people, affecting mainly women who have reported menstruation difficulties, heavy bleeding, miscarriages, and reduction of breast milk, I have been watching my newsfeed to see if any of the dissenting doctors and scientists we feature regularly here at Health Impact News would address these issues.

Fortunately, a team of 5 doctors in the U.S., all of whom we have featured in the past here at Health Impact News and are highly qualified to address this topic, just held a round-table discussion a couple of days ago to address these issues.

The issues they discuss affect ALL of us in the U.S. (and around the world) right now, and it is imperative that you take 79 minutes of your time to watch this video.

Not only do these highly qualified doctors discuss why they think this is happening, they also give practical advice at the end about what we can be doing right now to protect ourselves and stop this attack on the human race by the Globalists seeking to reduce the world's population.

Every single one of these doctors believe that these shots are NOT vaccines, but bioweapons designed to kill human beings.






Whatever else you are doing when you come across this video, it is highly unlikely that anything else you do the rest of your day will be more important than watching this video so you can be informed of the evil effects of these injections that are being censored in the corporate media and Big Tech social media.

Then share this video with as many people as you can.

COVID-19 … best defense available

As society world-wide toys with making this mandatory, we really ought to know it better than we do.

If you watch only one of my published videos or read only one of my published essays, this set should be IT.

A group of physicians currently numbering over 1,000 strong are raising serious concerns that deserve to be widely heard.

America’s Frontline Doctors website is
www.Americas Front Line

There they have three primary pages
Vaccine Information

Learn about the controversies, medical myths, and risk factors surrounding the COVID-19 experimental vaccines.
Vaccine Bill of Rights

A MEMORIALIZING RESOLUTION for the State of [INSERT STATE] to protect its citizens against unconstitutional and medically irresponsible COVID-19 vaccine mandates.
The Petition To Stop Forced Experimental Vaccines. Please go to this page and add your name to a large, growing list of people against MANDATORY INJECTIONS.

The first is pure information – lots and lots of powerful, accurate, important information. The next two are action items. We all need to take at least a few minutes to join the effort… as if our lives depended upon it.

Hugely valuable, America’s Frontline Doctors website has a dropdown menu item labeled “COVID-19”. Under that is a tab labeled “How Can I Get Medicine for COVID-19?“. That leads you to a physicians online service with providers who have not knuckled under to the fraudulent medical directors and officials whose work depends on killing availability of good medicine and working to force their toxic stew directly into your veins.

I could drive to every medicine-man storefront within a 100-mile radius of my home and MAYBE find a physician willing to prescribe and pharmacy willing to fill a prescription for the proven, safe, effective, quick cure OR I could find one of each with the single link: How Can I Get Medicine for COVID-19?

Here are some of my notes from watching the video:

The hydroxichloraquin LIE: It has been safely used world-wide for generations and is, in fact, over the counter in countries where malaria is common – without any harm to adults, children, pregnant women or any other group. The wonderful doctors courageously participating in this activism will even help you get some if you want it.

Words matter. We need to not use the popular word “vaccine”, but instead call it what it is: A brand new technology that has never been tested on animals or humans. It is correctly called, “an Experimental Biological Agent“. This is an untried, untested, arguably dangerous biological agent with no proven health benefits to those injected with it.

All this is instead of taking a widely used drug with safe, proven track record and almost overnight cure for severe COVID symptoms: hydroxichloraquin.

By the way, my Brighteon channel has a playlist I labeled “Vaccines – The truth is available“. You may want to peruse that list for more information, primarily from physicians and clinicians.

I created this post to share with a cousin who cares for my Aunt who is same age as my mother-in-law. Aunty recently has had some major events and I wanted him to see these things in case they could be helpful for her. My own mother who will be 97 this year is in a beautiful facility in the Seattle area and I take my MIL with me to visit each summer. Of course, we were visiting through the sliding glass doors of the physical therapy room due to the virus so it wasn’t the same, but still was good to see her.

These are the things we have for my MIL who will be 95 in May, ramp, light weight wheel chair, transfer belt that is too big yet is the smallest made so I use the blue handles instead, walker, grab bars in bathroom and bench to sit on in and out of tub, shower wand, handles over toilet, commode next to a bed (that has adjustable head incline). If I cannot get her up myself I can call 911 and paramedics will respond to help. So far that hasn’t been necessary but I’m not getting any stronger and we weigh about the same, she a little heavier. I also have a combination walker-wheel chair in our vehicle for use on outings because she won’t walk very far any more without wanting to sit down.

Many of these items can be rented or borrowed from your local senior services agency.

I suffer from arthritis in all my joints so too much lifting is very painful for me and I use all the aids I can employ. I was also attending a local support group until the virus curtailed my/our outings.

She really has to keep her hands busy or she will pick at her skin, particularly her hands and chew on her fingernails and fingers causing sores that can become infected. I use the polish that tastes terrible but even that won’t stop her since, apparently, taste isn’t as good as it once was. She’s also had a couple of mini strokes and we’ve witnessed a huge decline and an amazing recovery – near 100% of her pre-stroke capabilities that occurred over a month period.

We recently watched this documentary and it was fabulous. I’m surprised I’ve been in a support group in person and online and never heard of it. Ted found it and checked it out from the library. Alive Inside – Trailer

Here is another video clip of Harry  (pictured below) from the documentary that went viral in 2014 when it was released. If you want to see any of these photos larger just click on them.
