Pass It On…

Pass It On…

So one thing I find severely lacking nowadays is people passing on knowledge to other people. It used to be that you would learn from parents, grandparents, and other folks that were prominent in your life.

So That Didn’t Go Well…

So That Didn’t Go Well…

So today is one where I discuss one of my failures!  It wasn’t drastically spectacular but it could have been. Like I said last week, we rendered out a bunch of lard.  About half of the pig fat we had in the freezer, in fact.  We had all of the rendered lard chilled down in… Continue Reading

What Now Shall We Do?

What Now Shall We Do?

Yesterday we talked about the potential for tyranny and oppression here in America.  Today, let’s discuss some of the things we can do to prevent it. Some of these things are fairly benign.  Some are less so. Some will get you on a list.  Some won’t. You’re probably already on more lists than you know,… Continue Reading

Could It Happen Here?

Could It Happen Here?

My wife and I have been watching a mini series on the History Channel about the rise and fall of the Third Reich.  The first part of the series, covering the rise of Hitler, raised the question in my mind… Could it happen here? The long and short of it is that yes, it can.… Continue Reading
