Apple Pie

Sue and I have been experimenting producing Apple Pie “Moonshine”.

Well, it’s not real “moonshine” of course, but it’s one heck of a cocktail. We found some recipes on-line, and modified to our taste.

The recipe below is actually a combination of two we both enjoyed. Maybe you will too……

Apple Pie Moonshine

4 to 6 cinnamon sticks (vary with cinnamon flavor preference)

3 whole cloves (grind well before adding)

Small pinch of nutmeg (don’t over do it)

1/2 gallon of apple cider (we used Zeiglers Apple Old Fashioned Cider)

1/2 gallon of apple juice (we used MOTTS 100% Natural Juice, no sugar added)

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup granulated sugar

2 1/2 – 3 cups vanilla vodka (Smirnoff Vanilla)

2 1/2 – 3 cups high proof grain alcohol, like Everclear

Vary the amount of alcohol to your preference


Step 1: To make this apple pie recipe, begin by mixing the first seven ingredients in a large stainless steel stock pot (5.5 quarts or larger) and bring to a boil, while stirring the mixture often.

Step 2: Reduce heat and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, and stir often.

Step 3: Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.

Step 4: Once completely cooled add the liquors and stir well. Caution, never add alcohol near an open flame.

Step 5: When you’re ready to bottle, stir again, pour into bottles using cheese cloth as a filter and seal tightly.

Step 6: Refrigerate for a day or two, as this Apple Pie mellows with time.

Step 7: Serve the Apple Pie COLD….

Threats and racial slurs continue

Terry S Isenhour WA4OPO of Lincolnton, NC, who was recently convicted in a Lincoln County Court of shooting into his neighbors home (shotgun), has once again began using racial slurs, and just threatened to actually shoot the occupant of that same dwelling, on-air this morning. He referenced going to the Catawba Valley Wildlife Club’s Pistol Range (for practice), because he feels his neighbors may begin putting pressure on him.

This nut needs to be medicated, and put away.

There is a reason

that the family of SK K4EDK didn’t want Dumb and Dumber at the estate liquidation.

Even though I departed 1.926mHz over a year ago, due to the racist rants of Dumb and Dumber, I got the email notification concerning the estate liquidation, but Dumb and Dumber didn’t.

Speaks volumes doesn’t it?

Dumb and Dumber

of 1.926mHz still don’t get it.

Even after being confronted on-air about their comments, the racist comments continue.

No doubt about it. This mindset was taught to these scumbags during their upbringing.

Some of ‘them’ are bad, and some of ‘them’ are good.

Full circle?

The first tax paying employment I had was in a Photography Color Lab (1975). Received great guidance from several very top shelf color lab techs and photographers of the trade. However was more interested in electronics at that time. Did my military service, then attended a technical college for training in electronics. Began employment in the electronics trade in 1982. Opened a local IT (pc/computer repair) business here in Hickory, NC in 1999. Sold that business in the 4th quarter of 2018. Retired at the age of 58.

1st quarter of 2019 began my current (part-time) business to occupy vacant time. Photography. The amount of business I have received has exceeded my expectations!

Absolutely love what I do..

Full circle??

Yes…. A Full Circle….

Who would have thunk it….

Racist and hatred on 1.926mHz

Received an interesting phone call this morning from a fellow amateur…..The racist and hateful comments from a couple of scumbag hams in the early morning hours on 1.926mHz apparently continue. And they can’t figure out why others quit showing up. Both claim to be “Christians”, however both are full of hatred toward other races. Especially the black race. Avoid this frequency like the plague. Right or wrong, you will be judged by the company you keep. I left that frequency over a year ago, when both of these scumbags revealed themselves for who they actually are. Racist pieces of (fill in the blank)..
