We Need Shows Like Hee Haw

Would you like to know what is wrong with society? We need more Hee Haw and less reality TV shows. We need something families can sit in front up and have a good laugh.

As I write this post I am 49 years old, and will turn 50 in a few months. When I was a kid in the 1970s, mom, dad, my brother and I would watch Hee Haw. More or less mom and dad would watch the show and my brother and I would sit in the living room with them.

It was an hour filled with good family time, talking, laughing and having a good time. After Hee Haw was over, it would be time for a bath and bed.

Society needs something to bring families back together, and not drug, sex and violence laden reality TV shows. Continue Reading….

Adding To The Prepping Library

Survival books

As some of you may or may not know Paladin Press is going out of business. Some of their books are marked down to 65% off.

If you want to add to your prepping library, now is a great time to do it.

Those of you who know me and follow my youtube channel know I live in a rural area and am developing a self-sustainable homestead. The books I picked out are ones that talk about the direction I am going in.

The trapping books are so I can trap on the farm and around the outside skirt of the farm. My property is bordered by hundreds of acres of timber company land. The people who hunt the land rarely get close to the property line. this allows me to trap small game on the edge of the property line without issues. Continue Reading….

Three Broody Hens in The Chicken House

Broody hens

Three of my hens have gone broody and are sitting on eggs. One of them even hatched out a chick.

For those of you who do know, broody means a hen has gone into a mothering mode and is sitting on some eggs. The eggs are called a clutch. Some chicken breeds go broody more than others, and some breeds rarely if ever go broody.

What gets me:

Two of the hens are Barred Rocks, which rarely go broody.

One is an Australorp, which has a reputation of going broody.

My first set of chickens was back around 1987 or 1988. My wife and I butchered out that first set of Barred Rocks when they were around two years old, and I did not get any more until 2012.

So in the seven years I have kept chickens, only two barred rocks have gone broody. Continue Reading….

Patrol Pack First Impressions

Patrol Pack

Overall, I found the patrol pack to be a well rounded and perfect addition to my backpack collection.

Call me old fashioned, if I like something, then I hang onto it. For the longest time ,one of my go-to packs for day hikes and even warm weather overnight trips was a Jansport black book bag. That pack was retired when I migrated to a Maxpedition.

For several years my go-to pack was a Maxpedition Condor II. The Condor II is a great pack that is perfect for day long excursions.

As with everything else, after using the Condor II for several years, I decided it was time to try something new. So where did I go to find a new pack? I went to Ebay and looked through various military surplus packs. Continue Reading….

One of my Dogs Passed Away

Pet dog Buckshot

It is with deep regret that I have to make this post. The newest dog to the pack, a four month old puppy by the name of Buckshot, ran in front of a truck, was ran over and died on August 4th, 2017.

There is a private dirt road that goes through the farm that my cousins use to access their home. It was on that road, Buckshot ran in front of my cousins truck and was ran over. He did not suffer and passed away just a few seconds after the accident.

Several months ago one of my cousins brought Buckshot home for her mother, my aunt. My aunt, being an older lady may have had difficulties taking care of the puppy. It seemed like every day Buckshot was at my house to play with my dogs and look for food. I put a feed bowl on the front porch and would make sure the puppy had plenty of food. Continue Reading….

Rammstein: Paris – Links 2 3 4

Rammstein has released another video, this one from their Paris concert. I am not sure when the Paris concert was, all I know is this is an awesome video. American rock bands are so bland. In all honestly, the majority of good music has been coming out of Europe for some time. Even in the 1970s and 1980s, groups like Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden and Judas Priest were blowing most of the American bands away. We need more groups like Rammstein and less boy bands.

Watchmen The Sound of Silence

The watchmen, released in 2009 is a superhero movie of such epic proportions it is somewhat difficult to describe. Is it a love story, maybe a war story, vigilante story, underdog story, or maybe all of them? There are so many parallel plots going that there is no lack of action or lack story. The Watchmen is not just one story, or two stories,,, but a bunch of stories all rolled into a beautiful mess. While browsing through youtube I found this video and wanted to share it with all of you. It is beautiful, elegant, moving and a work of art.

Snake while filming flashlight review

While walking along a creek taking stock pictures for a Thrunite flashlight review I heard leaves rustling behind me.  I turned around and saw a snake slithering down the bank and into the creek. Upon reaching the water the snake stopped and was looking straight at me. I have heard that the water moccasin (cotton mouth) can be aggressive. I do not know if this is true. Most of the cotton mouths I have came across where happy to slither away, or they coiled up and stayed still. There was a dried vine hanging close to my head. I reached up and snapped off a piece of the vine that was about 2 feet long. The snake started to slither towards me, so I stepped Continue Reading….

Blacksmith Essentials

A buddy of mine has been talking about getting into blacksmithing. This got me to thinking, why not get into it myself? I have a poor mans anvil that has been laying around the farm. Awhile back a large hickory tree and large pin oak fell on the back of the property. I have the anvil and I have something solid to build the anvil stand out of, sections of a tree trunk. All I need to do now is put everything together and pick a few odds and ends. While looking through youtube I came across this video that discusses in great detail what is needed to get into blacksmithing. I like that the person making the video is not recommending top of the Continue Reading….

Tips on buying an AK-47

Ak Operators Union, Local 47-74 published a video on youtube awhile back where they talk about things to look for before you purchase an AK-47. First thing that is mentioned is magazine fit. My WASR-10 can be rather picky when it comes to magazines. Some are loose while others are rather tight. When I bought some Korean 20 round AK magazines the fit was tight until they had a few rounds put through them and the finish started to wear. Make sure the rivets and pins are uniform. Look at the front sight if it is “canted”, which means the front sight may be leaning to one side or the other.  My WASR-10 has a slight cant on the front sight.  I did not know Continue Reading….

Homemade anvil with stand

Very nice video about a guy who finds a piece of steel at a local scrap yard.  The piece looks to be around 3 inches thick and the guy says it is 27 1/2 inches long. What makes the video so interesting is how he builds a wood base and frame around the piece of steel.  He starts out with some 2x6s and a rubber pad.  He builds a base made out of wood, puts the rubber pad under the piece of steel, then builds a wooden frame.  By the end of the video he has a very nice setup with slots to hold his hammers. What I would have liked to see is a frame that could be left outdoors, such as in a Continue Reading….

NOTHING ELSE MATTERS by STEVE´N´SEAGULLS

Every culture in the world has developed it’s own form of music.  This is the one thing in all of humanity that just about all of us can relate to.  Music taste varies from person to person and culture to culture. One that that I enjoy is hearing music that crosses the cultural boundary.  Music that was written in one nation, is sung and enjoyed by people in another nation. Couple of things about this video I love – 1.  The guy in the boat making his way to shore and then joining the band.  2.  The lead singers hat.  Where can I find a hat like that?

Loreena McKennitt – The Mummers’ Dance

Sometimes a song comes along that sticks in my head. One such some is The Mummers’ Dance by Loreena McKennitt. Music is the essence of what makes us human. Every civilization developed music in some shape, form or manner. Lyrics start out: When in the springtime of the year When the trees are crowned with leaves When the ash and oak, and the birch and yew Are dressed in ribbons fair Songs about nature hold a special place in my heart. I like metal, heavy metal and industrial metal, but songs like The Mummers Dance have a special meaning.  Our modern lives have displaced humanity from where we belong, and that is with nature.  We are not meant to live in cities or in neighborhoods Continue Reading….

Muslim Migrants Firebomb Bus In Paris

Have you ever asked yourself if the major news outlets are telling you the truth and the whole truth?   Or, maybe, just maybe the major media outlets are pushing an agenda.  One example is when CNN was caught censoring the news. Ask yourself, did you remember hearing about a bus being firebombed in Paris? Some kind of barricade, which looks like trash dumpsters, are positioned in the street so that traffic is blocked. A fire is set on the right hand side of the bus, then there is an explosion. Reports say everyone made it off the bus. Terrorism has been denied by local police.  Do we “really” expect the police to say anything different?  Who wants to admit France is being overran terrorist?
