Special Important Announcement

    On December 9, 2020, a video entitled "It's a HORRIBLE time in history to be Honest and Ethical.  People love the LIE" was posted on YouTube.  The video features testimony from Dr. Pierre Kory, who is, for example, related to an entity called the "Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance" and to the St. Luke's Aurora Medical Center.  In the video, Dr. Pierre Kory talks about an anti-viral called "ivermectin", which has been around for some time, and talks about using it to defeat COVID-19.  The talk was given at a hearing (entitled "Early Outpatient Treatment: An Essential Part of the EN SVVID-19 Solution") at the U.S. Senate (related to the Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs) on December 8, 2020.  See the video!  Hold it!  I have to take that back!  I learned on February 3, 2021, that the video and a related video had been taken off YouTube by the management of YouTube (which is controlled by Democrats, supporters of communism and socialism), and, for instance, I learned about it through an article entitled "YouTube Cancels the U.S. Senate" [Johnson, Ron.  "YouTube Cancels the U.S. Senate."  wsj.com, 2 February 2021, 12:47 p.m. ET.].  A person has to wonder why the video would be removed, not being something that was clearly anti-communistic or anti-socialistic.  To learn more, you are urged to see my document informally entitled The "Democratic Party" and the "Democrats" Stand for Death, which can be reached through this Democrats and Death link.  I report that ivermectin is not a dangerous drug, and the drug has been showing some help in fighting COVID-19, as has hydroxychloroquine (a decades-old non-dangerous drug talked about by U.S. President Donald J. Trump and called dangerous and deadly by the Democrats (who worked to put down everything related to U.S. President Donald J. Trump)).  I note that, since ivermectin has helped ill people, the people who put down the drug killed some Americans by withholding the drug or withholding information about the drug in relation to COVID-19, but that is the way of the Democrats (communists and socialists and progressives and such).

    You have reached another edition of Michigan Travel Tips, a publication that has been around on the Internet for many years, and when I began writing such publications, I focused on showing places that a person could visit in Michigan while on vacation.  Since 2003, I have expanded the purpose, and, for example, I work to show some of the rotten people who exist in Michigan, not being one to promote Michigan as a place with only good people.  I have talked about Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, who, several times in public in 2020, pushed the idea that the medical community in at least Michigan is racist against blacks, because, it seemed (maybe), blacks were dying of COVID-19 at higher rates than whites were.  The statements from Gretchen Whitmer showed of the high rottenness of the mind of Gretchen Whitmer, who is a Democrat (such as a progressive or socialist of communist or Democrat Socialist or the like), and such a person, especially as a politician, would not hesitate to stab you in the face with a knife--that is the nature of an enslavist.  In this edition of Michigan Travel Tips is a little different, because once again, I have to talk about Forty Mile Point Lighthouse, and I have to talk about Stratford Shoal Lighthouse, which is located in Long Island Sound of the New York/Connecticut area and not in Michigan.  See what the entire document ended up with.

    In Michigan Travel Tips #198, which can be reached through this Travel #198 link, I showed off a model of 40 Mile Point Lighthouse that I made between June 2017 and November 2020, and the model shows the real lighthouse as it was from 1914 to 1919 (roughly).  Hold it!  I once again report that I am the only person who has had membership revoked (which happened a couple years ago) from the Forty Mile Point Lighthouse Society since 1996, and it was revoked because socialists were taking over the lighthouse historical society and wanted to install socialistic rules into the by-laws (at least), such as the one that has it so that only the board of the lighthouse can change the by-laws, and I thought their ideas were crap.  The lighthouse society is now controlled by socialists.  By the way, Forty Mile Point Lighthouse is located along Lake Huron and is about seven miles north of Rogers City, Michigan.  Now, I get back to the main theme.  In several editions of Michigan Travel Tips, I have talked about my making the model and about the real lighthouse, and I have noted that I have been looking for the first Fresnel lens that was used at Forty Mile Point Lighthouse.  In the previous edition of Michigan Travel Tips, for instance, I passed along information, and some of the story was tied in with Stratford Shoal Lighthouse (of Long Island Sound).  Since I published the previous edition of Michigan Travel Tips, I have come up with more information about both lighthouses, which I felt I had to pass along.  One day recently, I stumbled across a webpage--one like a forum--that talked about Stratford Shoal Lighthouse, and it gave information about some guys who had been stationed there, and one guy was stationed at the lighthouse around 1968, and fortunately for me, there was an email address for the guy listed.  It must be pointed out that, in 2020, I spent many weeks researching the lighthouses of the United States of America, and I made two main documents that were related to possibly finding the first Fresnel lens used at 40 Mile Point Lighthouse, and, basically, I collected information that showed the lens history of some 450 lighthouses, and the documents are very unique and important to me, but I know that there might be pieces of missing information, because while I made the documents, I was seeing some sources were not quite complete on a few lighthouses.  In essence, in the search for the lens, I came up with an image (taken by a professor in Arizona several years ago) of a Fresnel lens on display at the Maine Lighthouse Museum, and the staffers of that museum have no idea where the lens was used.  The lens--a fourth-order rotating Fresnel lens--fits the description exactly of the lens used at 40 Mile Point Lighthouse (and later at Sand Hills Lighthouse of the Ahmeek area of Michigan).  Having that lens in mind, I worked to see if I could figure out where the lens could have been used by eliminating the places where it could not have been used (which involved with two main documents).  I was able to rule out lighthouses that they had their lenses yet (such as on display), had the wrong types of lenses, used the wrong order of lenses, et cetera.  I ended up with two possibilities of where the lens at the Maine Lighthouse Museum could have been used--Forty Mile Point Lighthouse and Stratford Shoal Lighthouse.  I worked to contact the man listed at the webpage related to the forum about Stratford Shoal Lighthouse (and he was a former member of the U.S. Coast Guard), and, ultimately, I found out from him that, in 1968, Stratford Shoal Lighthouse had what seemed to be a light source known as a DCB-24 aerobeacon, but my documents, based on a whole bunch of sources (such as information related to LighthouseFriends.com), had no notes about a DCB-24 being used at Stratford Shoal Lighthouse.  After having information from the guy, I knew no Fresnel-lens was at Stratford Shoal Lighthouse in 1968, so, knowing the lighthouse did have rotating Fresnel lenses in the past, I went searching--looking to see when the last Fresnel lens (a fourth-order lens) was removed.  "Light list" books of the past (which are books that show information about lighthouses for sailors, such as how a lighthouse flashes or does not flash) showed that from the 1939 book to the 1940 book, there was a change with Stratford Shoal Lighthouse, and I was able to see the lighthouse went from having a Fresnel-lens system (using oil in the process to make light) to an electric-light system, and the candlepower of the lighthouse changed dramatically, going way up, way up.  That hinted to me (based on other stuff that I had found) that the last Fresnel lens was removed from Stratford Shoal Lighthouse between the time the 1939 book was published and the 1940 book was published.  I was at the time looking for more images of Stratford Shoal Lighthouse and for more information about the lighthouse, and, for instance, I went looking in digital databases of libraries.  I came across something big.  I came across a photograph of a Fresnel lens at the New York Public Library, and it was dated 1940, and it was take at the New York World's Fair of 1940.  Really, the New York World's Fair of 1940 started out as the New York World's Fair of 1939 (in April 1939).  The New York World Fair of 1939 and 1940 was held very near Stratford Shoal Lighthouse.   The photograph, which you can track down easily, shows a rotating fourth-order Fresnel lens.  I did research in my documents, and I could not find another lighthouse (beyond Stratford Shoal Lighthouse) that had lost a rotating fourth-order Fresnel lens in the previous ten years or so (previous to 1940).  I deduced it was very likely the Fresnel lens removed from Stratford Shoal Lighthouse in about 1939 was the lens shown in the photograph of 1940, and one reason for that is it would be easier to take the lens from the lighthouse and set it up for display at the fair than to dig up another lens from somewhere (maybe somewhat far away) and set it up at the fair.  The photograph on file at the New York Public Library does not note where the lens came from.  I bet it came from Stratford Shoal Lighthouse.  If the lens came from Stratford Shoal Lighthouse, then I can eliminate Stratford Shoal Lighthouse from the list of possibilities about where the lens on display at the Maine Lighthouse Museum was used.  By the way, I have found no photograph that officially shows the last Fresnel lens used at Stratford Shoal Lighthouse.  I report that the lens in the photograph would produce the flashing characteristic like that used at Stratford Shoal Lighthouse for many years (up to 1939).  At the moment, I report that the Fresnel lens on display at the Maine Lighthouse Museum was probably the lens used at Forty Mile Point Lighthouse from 1897 to 1919 and then used at Sand Hills Lighthouse from 1919 to 1921.  If you go to Forty Mile Point Lighthouse, you will have information that the people there will not tell you about.  By the way, the lighthouse near Rogers City is a place that has at least one person tied to the management who says that it does not matter if the volunteer guides give out wrong information as long as they say something.

    I can report that it is easy to find rotten people at Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan, it seems.  Incidentally, I went to Wayne State University in the 1970s, when the crap was on the rise at the university, and you can learn a bit about Wayne State University through my document about WAYN-AM Radio, which can be reached through this WAYN-AM link.  On April 22, 2021, I learned the management of Wayne State University was doing something that was crappy, and I learned that through an article in the Detroit Free Press [Jesse, David.  "WSU offers students money to get COVID-19 vaccine."  Detroit Free Press, 22 April 2021, p. 2A.].  The article said that the school was offering "free money" to students who get vaccinated.  It was $10.00.  No matter how much money it is, it is idiocy!

   Warning announcement!  Because of incidents at schools for children and incidents at other places for people in general tied to "Sharia" or "Islamic Law" or even the religion/political system known as "Islam," I now regularly have this paragraph as a part of each edition of Michigan Travel Tips.  The governmental system of the United States of America based on The U.S. Constitution and "Sharia" or, informally, Islamic law, are not compatible and cannot co-exist, and one reason is "Sharia" (et cetera) is a political system, in which there is one-party rule, and that one party is basically made up or controlled by religious leaders who base all the ways of their culture or society on "Sharia" or "Islamic Law."  Those who uphold and practice "Sharia" have no tolerance for the existence of Christianity or Buddhism or Hinduism or non-religion, and that is a fact, and "Sharia" is a political system in which women are second-rate human bodies and in which clergy can be involved in determining  business transactions, and there is no "freedom of speech" tied to politics in a society related to "Sharia."  When you travel around Michigan and in other states of the country, watch for signs that rotten people are trying to teach you or family members, especially children, that "Sharia" is good and "Allah" is good and teach you or family members that the United States of America is bad and that, for instance, Christianity and Buddhism and Hinduism are bad, which I have evidence is happening and which is being brought about by people who are clearly working to make "Sharia" a dominant political system in the world (it is a political system as rotten as socialism and fascism and communism are, since it promotes violence and thuggery and coercion, and it promotes killing of non-followers behind the face of religion and a god, Allah).  By the way, a society based on "Sharia" really creates nothing in the long run and does not advance the human society as a whole since it is too busy suppressing the ideas of people and keeping the ideas of the society based on ways of only a few minds up front (the political leaders), whose main purpose is too keep themselves enriched through the work of others, the many--it is a gang-run society really.  Yes, if you run across people pushing the idea that Muslim stuff--particularly the true The Quran and not the translations of The Quran that are faked to hide the true nature of Islam--is better than the U.S. is, especially to little children, go public and make it known to other good people and fight back against it.

    Officially, I have talked about two places to see--one in Michigan and one in New York/Connecticut area--but I have yet another place to mention.  The place is not open on a regular basis, so you have to plan ahead.  The place is the Corunna Historical Village of Shiawassee County (of Corunna of Shiawassee County of the Lower Peninsula).  This year, the place is scheduled to be open for a short while on the afternoon of July 4, 2021, and for a short while for the first two weekends of December (the information based on a webpage related to the entity), but a person can set up an appointment to see what the little village is at other times.  Mostly, the village has little buildings, some of which are replicas of real past buildings.  The Spencer-Gould-Storrer House is one of the original buildings, which dates back to about 1840.  The museum has, for instance, a barn, a tinsmith shop, a caboose (related to Grand Trunk Western Railroad), a bicycle museum, and a church (Lemon Church).  If you happen to be in the Corunna area on, for example, July 4, 2021, you could think about seeing the Corunna Historical Village of Shiawassee County.  Keep it in mind!

    Enjoy your traveling in Michigan!

    And keep aware of the rotten people in Michigan.

    Stay well!


    P.S. #1: Remember: While you travel in Michigan, remind your children or grandchildren that they should never pledge to be a "servant to Obama" or a servant to any politician or sing the praises of Barack Obama, and to help you remember other matters that you should teach children about bad politicians, such as Barack Obama (who can be described as an "enslave"), see such other documents of mine as Conservatism for Children and What Conservatism Means (which can be reached through this link: Conservatism) and Lessons for Children about Politics and Dangerous People (which can be reached through this link: Children).  (Note: I first passed along the subject of not being a "servant to Obama" and the like in the publication entitled T.H.A.T. #58, which can be reached through this link: T.H.A.T. #58.)

    P.S. #2: While you travel in Michigan, it is easy to come across evidence of rotten people or to meet rotten people. One really rotten man is Richard Bernstein, who is a new member to the Supreme Court for the State of Michigan.  Evidence of his rottenness can be found in my document entitled Richard Bernstein--A Man Who Hopes You Are Blind to His Rottenness, which can be reached through this Bernstein link.  Yet, on Monday, January 12, 2015, the Detroit Free Press did a story about Richard Bernstein to sell Richard Bernstein as something good, though he is not (Ahern, Louise Knott.  "State's 1st blind justice aims to be inspiration."  Detroit Free Press, 12 January 2014, p. 4A.).  I report--I urge anyone who runs a business and loses a court case in which Richard Bernstein was one of the presiding judges to have the decision thrown out or killed through another case, since Richard Bernstein, while running to be elected to the Supreme Court of Michigan, made it clear that he was going to be biased against businesses if he were to be elected to the Supreme Court of Michigan, and that is a fact.  Richard Bernstein is a rotten man!

    Your travel tip in this edition of Michigan Travel Tips is:

    The Corunna Historical Village of Shiawassee County, Corunna, Shiawassee County, the Lower Peninsula.
