Event Announcements / Squirrel Hunting Season: Minnesota
« on: April 01, 2017, 11:13:33 AM »
Opens statewide.

Possession limit: 7 per day in the field, 14 total possession limit.

Two things people need to understand more of:

1. "Possession" means the amount of squirrels you have with you in the field with any you may have at home.

It is a combination of all of your hunting trips.

So, if you already have 7 at home from one trip, you can only shoot up to 7 on any new trip.

Once you have used any up, you can go hunt again for the same number that you have used up.

So, if you used up all 7, you can go hunt for 7 more. If you have used up just 2, you can only hunt for two more until you have used more up again.

2. You cannot shoot more than 7 per day, even if you have used or eaten them up all that day. In each one day, you can shoot and use only 7. Your taking limit starts again the next day, not the same day that you have already been in the woods hunting.

So, if you already got 7 today, and you have used two up, you cannot shoot two more today. You have to wait until tomorrow to shoot two more. If you shot two more day, your daily taking total would be considered 9 and you would be violating the law.

On behalf of the PebHmong Admin Team, I invite all users to use the PebHmong Calendar to announce events around the world.

The PebHmong Calendar keeps your events organized by dates with easy viewing and worldwide access so that all those far and near can see what is happening where you are.

This is an advantage to posting at the "Event Announcements" forum alone.  If you use only the "Event Announcements" forum to post your events, your posts will not be organized by dates and won't be in order.  They will be harder to find because replies to the posts will bump them up above other events that may not have yet taken place. 

The PebHmong Calendar will set things straight so that past events will not interfere with current or upcoming events. That makes it easier for viewers to see what's coming and what no longer needs to be viewed.

Those who view the Calendar postings can then go to the "Event Announcements" for more details if what have been posted on the Calendar page aren't enough.

Posting there is easy. 

Just click on the Calendar link on top of the PebHmong front page and on "Post Event" at the drop-down selection.,5.0.html

That opens up the Calendar where you can now type in the title of your event on the subject line.;sa=post

From there, click on the drop-down link to choose the number of days you want your event to post. (If you want to post your event for just one day, it is best to post it right on the date of the event.)

Then click on "Link Event to Post."

The far right hand drop-down menu gives you the various fora (forums) that you can choose to post your event at, besides at the Calendar page.

Choose a forum.

Then click "Post."

A new page opens up at the forum you have chosen for your event to appear at.;sa=post

Fill in your event's details and post it. 

Your event now appears at both places: at the Calendar page and also at the forum you have chosen.

You can change any detail as you like at any time and from anywhere. Viewers will see the changes the very second you post them up.

The PebHmong Calendar is free and accessible worldwide.  Those in countries, states, or cities away from your event's location will get the news at least. Those local to your location will have the information needed to attend your event.

All legal events and activities--both personal and business--that you choose to make public can be posted there.

We encourage all users to use the PebHmong Calendar for all of your events, even some family gatherings at your choosing.

If our instructions are not clear or if you would like us to further help you post your events, please feel free to send them to me via private message.


PS: The above writing is just to elaborate what's  self-explanatory on the Calendar page. You may not need them once you've clicked on the Calendar and look at it.

Online Journal / Going real life into another person's dream
« on: March 27, 2016, 08:22:01 PM »
Ever been in another person's dream or find the resulting interpretation of someone else's dream?

I got into one today.

A Hmong guy in his fifties or so knocked on my door today and said he had been locked out of his house for over three hours today. Since we are the only two Hmong in this small suburb of St. Paul, he didn't know where else to go but to come to me. He said he had knocked on my door once already but there was no response.  I wasn't home then. And when he saw me pull back into my driveway he knocked again.

I invited him in. After a brief conversation, he asked me to take him to another relative's house to use their phone to call his wife--who was out watching Batman vs. Superman somewhere.

On the way to east St. Paul, he said he had dreamed of possessing opium two nights before. "And the elders have said that if you dream of  taking opium, it's trouble," he said.

"In the dream, I went to an aunt's house. I said I wanted something to do some business. She said, 'if you want to do business, why don't you take this opium and go sell it.'

"I took the opium but was afraid the cops might find out. So, I went to my car and looked for a place to hide it. But wherever I went, I was afraid the cops might see it. I couldn't find a good place for it," he said.

He said only the relatives would have phones to call his wife. I said he could borrow my phone. But he said he didn't remember his wife's number, since "nowadays, you just press a number for it to come out and I have not memorized it; they have it on their phones."

Knocking on the first house had no response. After a few minutes re-knocking, he gave up and came back into my car.

He didn't know the address to the second house but got a general idea of where it was. He knew which street, he said, but not which part of the street.

"We drive on it until you remember something," I said.

And we did.

By Earl and Third Street, he recalled that it was just down the valley and up east.

"He isn't home, either," he said. "That's my grandpa. When his van isn't here, he isn't here."

I encouraged knocking in case someone else might have borrowed the old man's van and he might be stuck at home. But he said he didn't need to, since "this man is wherever his van is; if his van isn't here, he isn't here for sure."

"You are welcome to go back with me," I told him.

"Let's go to another friend's house over the hill," he said.

On the way, he kept whining: "This is my dream exactly. I'm going places to hide the opium and can't find a good place for it."

"Let's see how your dream ends, since you woke up and didn't know how it ended," I said to him.

I got a bit frightened because I wasn't sure if things might go right for us. After all, how could a bad dream end well in reality?

Then he directed me to a road that lead to a blue house that he said was his friend's.

A Corolla was in the drive way.

"He's home for sure," the man said.

"Go ahead and knock. I'll wait 'til he opens the door for you," I said.

Knockings didn't get any response, either. So the man walked back to my car.

Just then the side door opened and a bald man reached his head out.

"Ah, that's him," said the man as he was closing my door. The man walked back to towards the driveway. They exchanged a few inaudible words.  "Thank you!" the man turned to me.

I waived good-bye and drove off.

Isn't this our traditional path, regardless of what we do on this planet?

Online Journal / Stalker in town
« on: October 12, 2015, 03:09:44 PM »
October 12, 2015--Eau Claire, WI:  Eau Claire is strange to me, but I feel safer here than back in St. Paul where I grew up in.

Lately, a stalker from another state has come to town and wanted to meet up with me for romantic indulgences. She has expressed her dying love for me. But we have never met before. She  has seen my picture only on Facebook, and has not stopped to think that I might be photoshopping it or that I my have glossified it to appeal beyond my natural look.  She said she is absolutely sure that I am her soul mate and that she was going to give me all her love and sacrifices and life.

The woman claimed in her messages that she has come to town on business matters and that she's very busy and cherished by so many and that she didn't have any time for me, even though I have not asked for her time or to meet up with her. But she stopped by my office to drop off a note and a bouquet of flowers last week when I was not in.

She didn't get to meet me. So, she stated in her new message that she was leaving St. Paul but that her friends didn't want her to leave, so she had to stay a few more weeks. Then another message followed that: she said she has left town two days ago and she was wondering why I had left my office so dark.

But last night a local friend called up a girl I knew and said someone from another state has been showing my picture around and asking if they knew who I was and that she claimed she has slept with me but then also said she has never met me before. "She's a very vicious lady," the friend said to the girl I knew. "We are not telling her about him. It's all trouble, and we don't want him involved with her."

I'll be in Eau Claire for another week to make sure she can't find me in my office.

I'm new to baitcasting. I love its lack of bulkiness and its target-accuracy casting. (Looks like it demands great judgment on when to press that thumb over the line at the reel.)  But I have no good control over backlashes. 

Finally found these two videos that seem to be the solutions: apply pressure over the line on the reel, spin the reel forward, and then pull the line in casting.

That loosens the nest and frees up the line again.

Has this been true of your experiences and knowledge?  Add if you have other ideas.

Hmong Culture & History / Is baci (khi tes) really a Hmong tradition?

The Lao and Thai do it, too. I don't think they would have copied it from us Hmong. Might be the other way around.
