Updating and Remodeling...

I have been writing new articles, finding old ones and, in general, remodeling my website - .

I have decided to go onward and to stop putting it off and bring the website back to what it used to be.

For a long time, none of this was fun anymore. Forums were not fun because I let people get on my nerves. When I participate on forums, that is generally what happens. Same with social media of other types. I originally thought I might be able to do more with a blog like this than my website. That was a mistake. Blogs are rather clunky.

Anyway, some new material has been published on the website, the look on all of the subject pages of it are different and, I think, better. More content is coming soon.

Look! Six "Youths" That Need Executed...

Really...seriously...the next time you hear about "innocent young people" getting shot by people trying to defend themselves...flush out your skull if you think they're all just "innocent young people."

Hmm...can you say, "apocalypse?"

Nice try...

The Clock has gained a minute - Read all about it!

If the screws had not arrived, he might have died...but...

You never know when you might have to defend yourself under rather bizarre circumstances...learn to kick...and most of all...learn when not to kick.

Fox News Fux Up...

The murder of Park Ranger Margaret Anderson, which is just the most senseless type of tragedy that any family can endure, was committed by someone who was either mentally ill or just violent, angry and stupid. It doesn't matter now, he apparently died of exposure which leads us to the main point - Fox news - the media - are stupid. They regurgitate anything they are told or what they simply dream up. After the murder of Park Ranger Anderson was reported, Fox actually reported that the person, who shall remain nameless as I hope everyone forgets his name forever and remembers Ranger Anderson, had "survivalist skills." Apparently he was ill-equipped for the season and weather and didn't quite possess the skills as reported.

This is the kind of nasty, yellow journalism, and that's exactly what the reporting on this issue was, yellow journalism, that I have observed all of my life from ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN. So, congratulations, Fox, you finally joined the ranks of the rest of the sensationalist news pimps.

Rest Easy, Mrs. Anderson.

Beebe, Arkansas - Second New Year's Eve in a row...massive bird kill...

Okay, okay...I'm fairly cynical about life in general and all of this "2012" hoopla in particular...but this is really stretching it for me...


6.8 Earthquake Off The Coast of Japan...

Starting the New Year off with a bang...and a shake...

30 Minutes to New Year...DOOM ON YOU!

I wonder what 2012 will bring with it...I wonder what all of the people who believe THE END of EVERYTHING is going to happen because of The Mayan Calendar will do when...that doesn't happen...

Happy New Years!

Closing Out 2011...

We had a lot of activity across the globe when it came to disasters this year.

Read about it here...

It's not good enough that they basically have control of everything. They have long had their eyes on the Internet. Imagine a world where information is TOTALLY GOVERNMENT APPROVED. would be like that...really terrible.

Lauren Weinberg, 10 days in her car, stranded in the snow...

Two candy bars, melted snow, NO heavy winter clothing or a blanket...and a lot of luck.

See, this really illustrates something very important about surviving various types of incidents. Her life was really in jeopardy because of the temperatures and she survived it...but imagine how much more of a simple inconvenience this would have been had she had a good survival kit in the trunk of her vehicle.

Read the story...

A lot of people will inevitably look at this and they will say, "Well, that's why I don't need a coat or a blanket or sleeping bag and a bunch of other stuff. She made it on two candy bars and melted snow. That's why I think all this survival stuff is paranoid and stupid."

And I'm sure a lot of people do think that way. I think a lot of them become the "tragic" news stories, too.

Doug Ritter, speaking about Knife Rights...

...and...he is absolutely correct. The control freaks are relentless.

Suburban Whitetail...

See? If there is a total collapse in society and you cannot afford bread or no longer have a job to be able to purchase bread...I'll still be eating for a while.

This Whitetail Deer was legally hunted, killed, tagged and logged in at a station and then butchered and part of him ended up in my Rival Crockpot.

The Voice of Reason...falls silent...

I have been listening to Ron Smith for a very long time, he will be missed. He died approximately 24 hours ago, at home, surrounded by his family.

Rest easy...

South Korea on alert now: Kim Jong Il is dead...

Let's hope everything works out for our South Korean friends...

Kim Jong Il dead at 69.

Sarajevo Survival Tools

Well, none of this could ever happen here, right? I mean, no one in The United States would ever use food and water or possibly medicine or access to a doctor as a weapon...would they?

I'm going to attempt to write!

So, this might sound sort of odd...but in order to set up some type of advertising on this blog, they have to be able to automatically verify my blog. So, I have to place the next sentence in this post. This is rather strange... 8-)

Whatever hatred saves the number.

The terror...

So, Verizon Wireless sends out a text message to all of its customers in New Jersey alerting and alarming them that there was a civil emergency and that they should take shelter now. They signed it US Govern

But they didn't say that it was a TEST they were running...

The Future?

I saw this one a forum and there was no attribution to it, so I cannot give any. Might even be prophetic.

I picked up a Wife at Target...

it was my Wife though...she just turned 40. I'm 43...I guess some people would say this is stupid or childish behavior...we love each other and we have enough in life that we have to be serious about. When we get a chance to act like we're two little kids and our teenage son is not around...we do. You don't like it? Fine! Get out of my blog-house! 8-)

After I took her for a tour trying to find a copy of Aerosmith's stupendous 1970s release, "Get Your Wings," and being totally unsuccessful at Target...I always check out the flashlights and outdoors stuff...


Gerber's line of Bear Gryll's approved survival gear was there! Yes, the guy that will climb a greased aluminum lightpole to escape a stampede of scorpions high on crank, he stares back at you from the blister carded Gerber tools and doo-dads, dirty faced...

I've never watched an entire episode of the guy's show. Every time I see a glimpse of it he is doing something so incredibly stupid, I go back to VH-1 Classics or something...I mean, know what I mean.

Gerber makes quality gear. Is it "high" quality...why...I don't rightly know anymore! I know they used to, I don't know about now and I don't know about the Gryll's line of gear. He is just funny to me...and the people that think that show is like a training program amuse me as well.

The Urban Widow

Just because there is carpet and, in this case, beat-up drywall, it doesn't mean you shouldn't watch where you put your hands. Me and a friend of mine at work got pictures of her at about 9:50 this morning before sending her off to the next life.

I don't quite know what to do right now about this. I have the website up and running again and I am going to do my best to update it regularly and make it a very, very active website.

I can take what I want from this blog and then archive or delete it and then what I have taken, I can turn into articles for the website.

So, what do you people think?

High-Tech Hobo Stew

Who hasn't heard of "Hobo Stew?" I mean, is there anyone in The United States that has not, at one time or another, at least heard about this legendary dish? Hobo Stew is a very tasty and incredibly easy stew to make. It's not even a stew really...

According to the amount of people that will be eating this delight, take a chunk of ground beef and throw it into a glass casserole dish, disposable aluminum pan or perhaps a Dutch Oven. With that chunk of ground up goodness, you add potatoes, carrots, onions, celery, fresh garlic and black pepper. Bake it covered at 375 degrees for about 90 minutes. At the end of this adventure, you will have an incredibly tasty dish.

If you are not accustomed to eating this type of food, you will be in the bathroom for quite some time! The hamburger grease will run through you like a laxative and what follows will be a freight train of misery.

The older I get, the less I can tolerate greasy food. It makes me feel terrible immediately afterwards and later on, when the squirts begin...I would just rather avoid all of that.

So, I pre-cook the meat and then I drain it. I use just a little bit of butter to keep the taters, carrots, onions and celery soft and tasty and it's better for you! You don't hover over the commode for a while this way.

Now, you can substitute and instead of using ground beef, you can use beef chunks that people generally use for beef stew, chili, etc. This works out great, too. Just cook them up with a liberal amount of black pepper, garlic powder and onion powder in a skillet and then add them to your pile of vegetable goodness with a smidge of butter and you are ready to go.

If you want to Cajunize, add Cayenne red pepper and some Chili Powder.

If you want to Italianize, add a smidge more garlic and some Oregano if you want HOT Italiano, add red pepper's easy to make good food.

Another thing...before you seal up this masterpiece and bake it, add three ounces of water and a couple tablespoons of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce. If you want some kick, add in a couple tablespoons of Tabasco, Crystal or Texas Pete - Tejas Pedro for you people down South. 8-)

Another favorite of mine is Pick-a-Peppa Sauce - LOVE IT!

Three ounces of water, have some class, use a shot glass. This, along with the butter and additional sauces steams the vegetables very, very nicely!

Here are some preparation pictures from the other night. We were so hungry, I forgot to take pictures of the cooked dish! Use your imagination!

Wal-Mart and its Ozark Trails brand of camping and outdoor merchandise are the skidmarks in the underwear of survivalist gear and disaster preparedness.

The aisles are littered with the most low-quality, Chinese junk and when you run into something from Coghlan's or Coleman, you breathe a sigh of relief...and that's not saying much at all because there is very little gear from either one of those companies I would trust my life to. Coleman sure as hell isn't the Coleman brand of the 1970s and early 1980s, I can tell you that.

I cannot for the life of me begin to understand why someone with any outdoors experience whatsoever would choose a lensatic compass from Mal-Wart.

(And, NO, I don't like that company and I don't appreciate what they have done to my country so, yeah, when I get a chance to bust their ass and be honest about it, I'm going to do it!)

Worse yet are the rocket scientists on various survival-based forums who think that a "fish-eye" compass like you can find at China-Mart is "serious survival gear." And they get their ass up on their back if you inform them otherwise, too.

You know, if there was a massive strike against the United States involving dozens, or perhaps hundreds, of thermonuclear weapons and the only thing I had was a fish-eye compass or a piece of shit lensatic compass made by some slave named Wan Hung Lo that I found lying in the street, so be it! But I would not choose to go into a survival situation with that type of low-quality, shitty gear.

It's just me...

..and I hope you, too, or I might be wasting my time talking about this sort of thing. Why even have a blog at that point? To tell people how great garbage gear is and how overrated real gear is?

I am NOT the kind of guy that has to have a Busse survival knife because ESEE Cutlery and Beckers are not good enough, that's just goofy to me. The increase in quality is nowhere near the increase in cost. Yet, I see people who have these "Bug Out Bags" and they just have them packed with trash because it's easier to go to China-Mart and drop less than $200.00 to buy a bunch of stuff than it is to spend a few hundred over the course of months or a few years purchasing real gear.
