Spam -- the Eating Kind.

Tom's Journal.

   I feel that I am just doing my duty by disseminating all this Prepper Info/ Intel with you.   As you may guess this web site/ Blog draws a certain kind of people, Patriots Veterans and Christians, ETC., are drawn to this kind of Journal.  And that makes sense,  because I sure don't want to bug people who are not interested in what I have to share, and they are happy in their goofy mindset and way of life --- away from the Bible and Believers.  However, the book of Ezekiel says that men will be throwing their money in the street at the far end of this evil, Satan led world as we know it. 

My hard driving working days on the Chrysler assembly line, etc., and Welding shops are over now.  It's something MOST auto workers and others worked for and dreamed about.  But I would bet that half of our number in disabled now from work injuries, etc.  People say that I had a rough, hard, life, as I commonly outworked 3-4 men, etc., LOL.
     And many "doctors" LIED to me, saying that my fractures from too many auto and motorcycle accidents would heal and not cause further pain,  but that is not the case.   Sorry to complain and cray so much, except I want to admonish you all, young men and women to 'just be careful' where you step, drive, ride, and please EDUCATE  yourselves.  And there are many ways to educate yourself!  The InterNet, books, old cranky guys like me, and so on.  The Army was a great teacher, but there is a lot of stress in combat in a different land/ country.   A great, positive therapy that I get into is talking/ emailing my fellow Vietnam Veterans and other Vets!  Get hooked up before we leave the earth !  Smile.  Write a book or Journal and share your thoughts.  I got started on writing a book with 2--talented 'proof readers.'  I picked one lady and got 150 pages, before I got "Writers' Block" right after Chrysler called me back after 6- years on the street, welding for slave wages, plus it also cost me a marriage.  My first wife, Karen, died of Leukemia, and so I will not say anything negative about her.  I just hope that she found the Lord.   As for me,  I am still trying to figure out modern WOMEN. 

I hope you all enjoy this subject matter as much as I did.

Warm Regards, and Army Hugs,

How to Make Spam
Are you a fan of Spam?  No, not the junk email kind…the meaty canned mix that’s been around since WW2, when it was a much loved (or loathed) troop staple.  It’s ubiquity and reputation was such that American GIs even labeled Spam “ham that failed the physical.”
A portmanteau of ‘Spice’ and ‘Ham,’ Spam is a cultural culinary icon. Originally marketed to busy housewives as ‘the miracle meat’ that didn’t need to be refrigerated, Spam’s big selling points included the possibility of enjoying it hot or cold, straight from the can, in countless Spam-centric recipes.

Soldiers On Spam

During the war effort, millions of cans of Spam were shipped to troops as a low-cost, filling, nutritious staple that was easy to transport and store for months on end.  Inevitably, it quickly became the scourge of soldiers who had to eat it virtually every day in some form or another.
It even inspired some of them to think up increasingly creative ways to express their frustration at being served Spam for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  One anonymous poem ends with the lines:
And thus the endless cycle goes;
It never seems to cease —
There’s Spam in cake and Spam in pie
And Spam in rancid grease.
The reference to Spam in ‘rancid grease’ is particularly appropriate; one of Spam’s extracurricular wartime uses was as a lubricant for the moving parts of guns.  Pioneering soldiers used the greasy meat residue to waterproof boots and tents, before enjoying a game of poker played with Spam slices inked with card markings.
The empty tins weren’t wasted either – they were often pressed into service as pots and kitchen utensils.

A Festival of Spam?

Feelings about Spam during the war years might have been mixed, but today, Spam is still so loved in Hawaii, following the military presence there during WW2, that the locals have an entire festival dedicated to it.
Despite its rich history, if you think Spam doesn’t exactly set your culinary world alight, then we might just have a revelation for you. Try the homemade version.
Homemade Spam is tender and delicious and can form the basis of countless sandwiches and meals.  The ingredients are few, the method is easy with no specialist equipment required and the results are seriously mouthwatering.
Serve up some nostalgia with a few slices fried up with eggs or in a grilled cheese Spamwich or go a little fancy and stir fry chopped Spam with Chinese rice or noodles.
Here’s how to get some homemade Spam into your life:


  • 5 lbs pork shoulder;
  • 1 lbs ham;
  • 2 tbs + 1 tsp Tender Quick (order online if your local store doesn’t stock it);
  • 3 tbs – sugar;
  • 3 tbs – cornstarch or potato starch;
  • 1 tbs – Kosher salt;
  • 1 cup – ice-cold water;


#1. Preheat your oven to 250º
#2. If you have a bone-in piece of pork shoulder, remove the bone with a sharp knife and set aside. Dice the pork shoulder meat into stew-size pieces, keeping any fat attached to the meat.How to Make Spam#3. Again, without trimming off any soft fat, dice the ham into the same size pieces as the pork shoulder.
#4. Spread the cubed meats in an even layer on a tray and place in the freezer for 45 minutes to firm up.How to Make Spam#5. Meanwhile, make your curing slurry. Mix the Tender Quick, sugar, cornstarch and salt in a bowl with the ice-cold water until the dry ingredients are dissolved.How to Make Spam#6. Set the bowl to one side while you grind the meats, either pushing them through a grinder or using a heavy-duty food processor (you might have to work in batches with this option).How to Make Spam#7. Combine the ground meats in a large bowl and pour over the slurry, mixing everything together really well, preferably with your hands.How to Make Spam#8. Once everything is thoroughly mixed, press the mixture into a bread pan(s) and securely double-wrap the pan with aluminum foil.How to Make Spam#9. Place the smaller oven pan into a larger one and pour in cold water to come three-quarters of the way up the side before putting into the preheated oven for 3- 3/12 hours.How to Make Spam#10. After the cooking time is done, remove from the oven and check that the center of the loaf has reached an internal temperature of 155º.
#11. Take the pan out of the water bath and place a heavyweight on top of the foil and leave until completely cool.How to Make Spam#12. Once cooled, place into the refrigerator – with the weight in place – overnight.
#13. The next morning, remove the weight and foil and loosen around the edges of your Spam with a butter knife. Slide-out onto a plate and slice!How to Make SpamWhat you’ll notice immediately is the rich, delicious savory jelly that surrounds the meat.  If you can resist eating your homemade Spam right away, store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or freeze in parchment paper-wrapped slices.
The juicy, tender, meaty texture and that appetizing jelly is a killer combination that guarantees the first time you make homemade Spam is never the last.

God's Grace.

Tom's Journal.

Hi Friends,
   To be plain, sure and truthful, these past weeks all over the world have dumped quite of bit of hot, windy, dangerous weather on us, from Europe to the USA- America, and in places  where that sort of thing are just unheard of.   Not everyone can tolerate the extreme heat without properly installed Air Conditioning.  We never had it as kids on Mom and Dad's farm in S.E. Wisconsin, USA. 

God's Grace has been available for some 1900 years now, since our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ was put to death on a cross.  It's high time to get very familiar of these important terms. 

I hope all of you are safe and sound.

Warm Regards,
Tom  Schuckman

Two Great Signs of His Coming

By Hal Lindsey

July 23, 2019

For most of two millennia, Christians have been expecting the Lord's return. Critics draw a strange conclusion from this. They use it to say Christians should now ignore Bible prophecy altogether.

Yet it is normal and healthy for Christians to live in expectancy of the Lord's return. From early on, they would say to one another, "Maranatha," meaning "our Lord comes." Paul used it in 1 Corinthians 16:22. By that time, the word had already come into widespread use in the early Church.

Martin Luther urged Christians to live in expectancy of the Lord's coming. He wrote, "Let us not think that the coming of the Lord is far off; let us look up with heads lifted up; let us expect our Redeemer's coming with longing and cheerful mind."

John Calvin wrote, "Scripture uniformly enjoins us to look with expectation to the advent of Christ."

Titus 2 calls the Lord's return the "blessed hope." It's even better when you look at it in context. Titus 2:11-13 says, "For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus."

That's a summary of what grace does in our lives. It brings salvation. It teaches us to deny ungodliness. Grace allows us to have wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God despite the evil world around us. And finally, God's grace puts a wonderful hope in our hearts. It teaches us to expect, look for, and yearn to see Christ's appearing.

We should be looking for His return because we love Him and trust Him. He said He would return, and He does not lie. In John 14:2-3, Jesus said, "I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also."

James 5:8 shows the value in living in expectation of Christ's return. "Strengthen your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand."

The critic says, "But that was more than 19 centuries ago. How could the coming of the Lord have been 'at hand'?" Through Peter, the Holy Spirit answers the critics. 2 Peter 3:8 says, "With the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day."

We must understand that the Rapture of the Church is imminent. That doesn't mean it's going to happen today or sometime next week. But it does means that it could happen at any time - even in the next second. There are no signs to be fulfilled before the Rapture. That's how every generation of Christians could legitimately hope for the Lord's appearing in their time, even before signs of the end of the age became acute. We don't need signs to expect the Rapture.

But in this generation, we see tremendous signs that the Tribulation period is near. And since the Rapture must take place before the Tribulation, signs that the Tribulation is near mean that the Rapture must be extremely near.

What are the signs? Two stand out.

One - Israel. End-time signs revolve around Israel, but until 1948, there was no Israel. God bringing that ancient nation back to life - vividly predicted over and over in scripture - gives meaning and urgency to all the other signs.

Two - in our day, we see a convergence of signs. In other words, they're happening all at once. No generation ever saw anything like this.

But these signal the Rapture only in the sense that the Rapture must take place before the Tribulation. So, is our generation different? Yes. I'm convinced it is.

That does not mean that you or I will not die before the Rapture. We might. But if we do, we will have lost nothing by living our lives expecting the Rapture, and we will have gained a great deal. It's how God wants us to live. And it enhances every part of the Christian walk.

Obama Panicking - Leaked Emails Confirm It...

Tom's Journal.

Hi Friends and Readers,
    What blows my cork is when the 'big wheels' strut around and hobnob with the super 'Elites' with their fancy dinner parties, sex parties, etc.,  looking down at people of Faith/ Christianity, planning how they will dismantle and destroy all of us while they sit in judgment of us, etc.  

Well,  I am no bodies' Judge or executioner, but I still have pride in some past things that I was a part of that were much bigger than me, like HUGE Organizations/ Army that fought to win with carnal weapons.  And now when we [Vietnam Veterans, and other older Veterans] gather at funerals, weddings and get togethers, etc., we hug each other because we know that our numbers are disappearing as our hearts stop ticking--- and we meet the Lord Jesus Christ, etc.... only this time, forever!  And if we never "MADE THE TIME" TO READ AND STUDY THE BIBLE, we will somehow have to account for that failure to our great Judge and Lord and His Father, Yahweh [Jehovah] and find out the real name of the Father !  Those of us who are 70 and older know that the world is really changing for the worst, and it's only going to get worse! 
      To tell the truth,  "Repetition is the Mother of Retention!"  in other words -- we can't help but memorize songs, lyrics, words, poems, and the Bible if it is repeated so often [and there are tape recorders for sale with great Bible tapes and CD's spoken by crisp speaking Brits and other fine people for those of us who are well educated and fluent.  
     I have found an old song that takes me back to the late 1960's ---1968-9 with the beat of soft rock of,  "The Peppermint Rainbow" band of great music~!   The song:   "Will you be staying after Sunday or going home on Monday?" 
       Actually the pilots and crew members could and did listen to the music while firing their machine guns, rockets,  and "Mini-guns" in combat !!    What a totally whacky war and time~!    And we share those times with the younger ones... LOL.

Franklin Graham's Warning.

Tom's Journal.

Hi Friends,
    I am sure that many of us 'good hearted' caring Christians want to at least TRY to help people in the world who have honed their art of getting too personal with the younger ladies and girls after they ply them with drugs and/ or alcohol.   My wife and I just got back from the Milwaukee, WI., Kenosha, WI area, shopping and reunited with an old Army friend.  So of the dangerous neighborhoods stood out to me reminding me of what I know to be true in the larger cities.  The truth is that so many young boys can make so much money selling drugs, also getting young girls pregnant so the girl can start sipping the federal and state money for pre-natal care, welfare, food stamps, etc.  The generations long lifestyle never stops and those folks miss out of important basic education!  The boys stay away from the girl until she starts getting her welfare money $$$, and then the boy moves in to "play house."  But there is never a "Marriage" because that would stop the flow of Gov't money, and how can that messed up couple and baby live if the girl lose her "Gov't Benefits ? !"   Where ever and what ever that couple do is stained by that stigma for the rest of their life.  
       The KJV Bible holds the real Truth and 'Blue Print' for starting off right in life with all the Right God-given Information even leading to EVERLASTING LIFE IN HEAVEN with Jesus Christ, and Father God. 
    Father God forgives ALL SIN,  but we should never use that truth to purposely commit more sins.   Soon the bad, evil people will seize power in the USA and World, directed by the Devil-- Satan, but we hope that by then the Rapture will have come and gone.   But we serve our Master and Lord Jesus, forever and no matter what goes down in the world.  

Our siblings, relatives and friends, etc., have [sorry to say] already chosen sides, and most don't even want to hear or read about the subject matter of which I write.   I never did have that "Herd Mentality" --- but I have searched for the Truth most of my life, through adversity and stormy times.  The Bible has never failed me. 

The super HOT weather in the USA is killing the older, and poorer folks all over, but the 90's degree weather is made worse by the high DEW point and humidity.  It really reminds me of South Vietnam....  back in 68-70., but we were young and skinny then.  We wonder why did our God save us from heavy injury and death back then...

Warm Regards,
Thomas G Schuckman

Psalm 130: 3,   ---"If errors were what  you watched, O God, who could stand?"  

Franklin Graham just issued a dire warning about this dangerous legislation

The radical Left is determined to force Americans to adopt their views on a wide range of issues.
“Tolerance” and “acceptance” are oft-used buzzwords, but their true goal is to ostracize or criminalize anyone who disagrees with them.
And Franklin Graham just issued a dire warning about one dangerous piece of legislation the Left wants to ram down our throats.
Earlier this year, the House of Representatives passed the so-called “Equality Act of 2019.”
The bill would overturn long-held constitutional protections of religious freedom, from which Franklin Graham warns the “nation may never recover.”
LifeSiteNews notes:
The Equality Act would amend the 1964 Civil Rights Act to include “sex,” “sexual orientation,” and “gender identity” among expressly recognized “non-discrimination” categories in “public accommodations” (the definition of which would be dramatically expanded); and force employers of 15 or more people to recognize their claimed “gender identity,” forbid them from “discriminating” based on “sexual orientation” or “gender identity,” and mandate transgender “access” to sex-specific facilities.
In the July-August issue of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s “Decision” magazine, Graham writes:
The progressive left has ascended into a national political power that presents a clear and present danger to our basic religious liberties and freedoms. They despise anyone who is pro-life and mock all who hold to a Biblical worldview.
. . . these progressives are driving a piece of legislation termed the Equality Act, which gives unprecedented rights to transgenders and homosexuals . . .
The progressive, Democratic-controlled House of Representatives has already passed this atrocious bill, and only the Republican-controlled Senate and the president stand in its way. If the Senate majority changes or if enough Republican senators change their position, it would be up to the president to veto the bill. And if that office were to change hands in 2020, I have little doubt this would become the law of the land.
This legislation will have catastrophic consequences for competitive sports, along with churches and faith-based nonprofits who would lose all protections to hire people who adhere to their Biblical statements of faith. Christians will be persecuted for their sincerely held beliefs as never before. The clear teachings of the Bible on the sins of homosexuality and abortion will no doubt be considered “hate speech.” It will be a nightmare from which this nation may never recover.
The critical 2020 elections will be here before long.
As Franklin Graham notes, the outcome of just a few races could radically determine the direction the country heads.
What are your thoughts on what will happen?
Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

Our 'Congress Critter,' the Good Man.

Tom's Journal.

Hello Friends and Gentle Readers,
    Below is a forwarded message from my District "Congress Critter" Jack Berman.  Although I have never met him in person, I have read up on him and his way of Conservative thinking and beliefs, and so I count him as one of the "Good Guys."  Also an experienced doctor and former Military man, that visits our local VAMC in Iron Mountain, MI [in the U.P.].  If only American had a few hundred more people just like him. 

I also have a personal friend named,  JJ [another Huey Helicopter Door Gunner who served in Vietnam, like me.].   JJ gave me a good account of our 'Congress Critter' and so I trust his judgment. 
     Let me remind all my Readers... that what often appears to be a movement,  one way or another, it is Father God's PLANNED TIME TABLE and Bible Prophecy that counts.  After what we have just witnessed these past 2-- years from the Socialist Left Dims, anything is possible, with huge gaps in our safety net as a Nation betrayed by treasonous high officials in the last Administration!   As I have explained so many time in my humble Journal,  my humble opinion is to 'prepare' for two different scenarios... one for this world and one for the next world, hopefully in Heaven.  "Unser Vater in dem Himmel.'  See Matthew 6:9. 

I would love to make contact with more people in Norway [the Country] to find out how they live and what they think about world affairs.  One never has 'too many friends.'
     I also recently latched onto an old, 1968 song [soft rock] --- the Peppermint Rainbow,  and one of their songs:  "Will you stay after Sunday."  They would be my age, either living or passed away, and I am having trouble finding more info on their cool singing group.  Check them out.

Warm Regards,
Tommy Schuckman

Bergman: People Deserve Better 
Washington - Congressman Jack Bergman issued the following statement after voting in opposition to House Democrat's resolution:
"With no major political accomplishments to show since the 2018 elections, Democratic leadership has chosen to push meaningless resolutions to score cheap political points, further dividing our nation. To be clear, my opposition to this resolution has nothing to do with my colleagues’ gender, religion, or race, nor does it have anything to do with President Trump’s tweets. I just flat out don’t agree with the content of my liberal colleagues’ policies, whether it’s their socialist Green New Deal, job-killing regulations, or their repeated attacks on the sanctity of life. Opposition to their beliefs does not equal racism.
"The constituents of the First District of Michigan sent me to Washington to be a legislator, not a commentator. Instead of empty House Resolutions and constant attacks on the President, Congress should better serve the American people by getting back to work on the issues and actual legislation that we were sent here to address. Congress is broken and political ploys like this are furthering the divide – the people deserve better."
