hoisting my flag

Last autumn I had the evergreens shading our high-value, warming, southern exposure removed – or in three cases, turned into naked support masts for future ham radio antennas. Several people have mentioned my “flag pole(s)” wondering what I am going to fly from it/them and when. That particular idea has been churning around in my subconscious for quite some time. What flag would I like to hoist at the entrance to our homestead? Ideally, it would be the flag I designed and produced representing the phrase, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants“. But I have not run across a custom flagmaker … or been inspired to research […]

I beat the zero-car-garage plague

There is a peculiar disease running rampant in the USofA. A huge percentage of the two-car garages in this country are so stuffed full of … uh, belongings … that the cars park outside. Hundreds of thousands of HoneyDo lists have “clean up the garage” on them. Of course one answer is the ubiquitous Storage Unit. There are probably one of those for every fifty people in every town from coast to coast. Exceptional people actually park two cars in their two car garage. A couple weeks prior to my first year anniversary of living in the new homestead, I achieved that level of exceptionalism. It feels GREAT! —————————————————————————- That actually came to fruition Sunday. Today I imagined, engineered, fabricated […]

creek maintenance

I took a break from metaspace and spent the week in meat space. Among other things, a major shelving project delivered a two car garage instead of a 400-square-foot waist-deep pile of crap that had no good home yet. Before that was an electrical wiring project to put our irrigation pump on an actual switch instead of plugging and unplugging a heavy-duty 50-foot extension cord. Side effects included a couple of useful outlets. About a week ago I came outside in the morning to immediately notice an abnormal quiet. Really quiet. Huh? Where is the sound of the creek? So I walked down to it and WHOA! It was a trickle. Oh crap. Some telephone calls later, I ended up […]

Good Guys With Guns

Progress Report 10 August 2018     Dear GOOD GUYS & GOOD GALS,   I am pleased to announce that STEPHEN WILLEFORD — one of the consummate “good guys with a gun” — gave us a great interview last week where he shared his story about the mass-shooting at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on 05 November 2017.   If you watch the clip of Stephen’s story below, it should be clearer than ever why it is NECESSARY for individual Americans to “keep and bear arms” in places like churches, schools, concerts and other public spaces.  It should also be clear why citizens should be trained — as was Stephen Willeford, an NRA Member and former firearms […]

Good Guys With Guns

James Jaeger and Matrix Productions are well along production of an important, positive movie. I subscribe to his mailing list, receiving occasional updates and progress reports. The film crews have completed most of the interviews with The Big People who stand tall in defense of armed self-defense. There are a lot of work hours yet to go before we get to see this film. Meanwhile, he just sent this insightful explanation of how modern movie production functions, in particular how the financing and industry practices determine most of what the primary media outlets present… and how alternatives actually reach a significantly larger audience… and how that has already changed politics today. – Ted FINANCING CONSERVATIVE MOVIES Would the Founding Fathers […]

practical, tactical communications training

We have a unique opportunity coming to the Bitterroot. It is a big deal to have this particular North Carolina based trainer offering these classes here. For me, traveling there will never happen no matter how high-value the training is. The timing of next month’s classes does not suit my personal needs, but I am adjusting to fit the offering. Opportunity doesn’t always knock at the moment you are prepared to open the door. Take it on its terms and schedule … or miss it. The local sponsoring organization looks credible, possibly excellent. You can do your own research on The Order of the White Rose. The Hamilton, Montana classes may well include a number of people I will prize […]

Syrian war almost over

The Obama puppet spoke for the globalists crushing Syria 5 years ago. Amazingly, they failed in their mission. The last tiny corner is almost back as part of the original unified country the war machine decided to crush. The Syrians are coming home in large numbers. “The refugee crisis” has a rather obvious solution: stop bombing their homes. The Ron Paul Report today covers much of this.

When you need work done, ask the old guys

An even dozen mailboxes are clustered where the gravel road meets the paved one. A large, very old, rotten timber holds up 8 of them while the other four perch atop various posts that are as individual as the homeowners who added their mailbox to the row. In all, a very random collection with only one at the US Postal Service mandated 40″ height. Last Monday we all received notices from the post office that our mailboxes needed to meet the 40″ minimum. I responded with printed notes in each mailbox inviting all to a work party at 0900 Saturday to raise them all together. One man telephoned me to say he couldn’t make next Saturday, but wanted to help. […]

Bosco at 5.7 months

He is shaping up to be an excellent dog. Yeah, the German Shepherd Dog (GSD) side needs employment … OR ELSE … they self-employ … and the owners are guaranteed to not like their ideas. But, dang, they make great family dogs. I suspect Bosco’s ears are a month from standing up like proper GSD ears, but his head seems otherwise dominated by his American Pit Bull (APB) half. Both are described as athletic and strong; both traits desirable in a country dog. Puppy Chart .com estimates my 68.6-pound 5.6-month-old will be a 100-pound adult. *WARNING* Stay on top of training. You won’t want an out-of-control Big, Strong, Athletic, Inventive dog. Dogtime.com is an EXCELLENT reference tool. The peculiarities of […]

infected … again

I apologize for the absence. I tried visiting an interesting-sounding article at some new ‘prepper’ website only to get my computer hopelessly infected. I lost a few days to installing a new operating system … and, sigh, ugh, rebuilding one link after another. My e-mail is still not functioning. Dang. I would rather run power tools through lumber than play games with computers.

sad day when rational conversation is unapproved

Those paying attention to world affairs from a variety of sources know the MSMs anti-Russian, anti-Trump hysteria is irrational. The interview below on the eve of the Trump / Putin meeting is a calm, objective look that blows the smoke of hysteria away. You might almost get the impression that rational adults could be in charge. Lordy! Putin puts Russia’s interests first & respects Trump’s ‘reci from Ted Dunlap on Vimeo.

the frenzy

one using the old noodle – vs the other

Faux News talking head Chris Wallace unsheathes his wet noodle to “ask the hard questions” of Vladimir Putin. The interview below is well worth watching at least as much for the uneven contest as for the content. Whether by official policy or personal acceptance of their mythologies, poor Chris tries to corner Vladimir with smoke and mirrors only to find his opponent quite capable of clearing the air every time. Proven lies do not show well in contrast to proven facts. They keep trying to get Putin to play their games by their rules. Why would any sane person do that? I am personally impatient with interrupters. Sensationalist shouters squash debate, substituting a contest of rudeness for an honorable […]
