Shimshon has been thinking about the cold weather, about Livestock guardian dogs and pets who haven’t been neutered. He thinks I said “tutored” Ah well, he’s not old enough to really understand it anyway. He’s got the jist. He makes a fine little partner and he’s learning more all the time. He’s has a lot of thoughts for a puppy. Partners
My Anatolian puppy has decided that he thinks he should have his own blog. Well, if it keeps him from chewing up something else, and he’s willing to try it despite that lack of opposable thumbs, who am I to stand in his way. You can find him at Shimshon’s Say
Movin’ On or Movin’ Up?
In the mid-1970s there was a TV show called “Movin’ On” about a pair of truck drivers, Will and Sonny, theme song by Merle Haggard. These guys were not pick up truck drivers as you can see, they drove the big 18 wheelers and probably why Kenworth is still my favorite…. Read More
Facing the Quicksand
I’m sure everyone has had to do things they don’t especially want to do. For me lately it’s been a barn infested with raccoons. Oh yes, they are cute, they are adorable, very clever little bandits.

Love Notes From G-d

When I first thought about writing this column, I was just going to do a column on vote fraud. But then I started seeing all these other machinations that are going on that also are trying to influence this election. Some of them have as much potential impact as vote fraud.

France has helpfully drafted a proposal to the U.N. to internationalize the Temple Mount, Har ha-Beyit. They feel that seizing control of a section of Israel’s sovereign and most holy ground will somehow calm the violence.

Dreidels and Hedgerows
Imagine you lived in a country where the ability to worship G-d was being outlawed, where your language and culture was disappearing. Where Preachers were jailed or killed for preaching the Bible or Tanakh? You think I’m talking about America, now? Maybe. Read More.

The Western Wall
So, after Yad Vashem we continued our adventure by heading for the Western Wall, transliterated Hebrew it would be HaKotel HaMa’aravi, in real Hebrew it would be הַכֹּתֶל הַמַּעֲרָבִי. So, you want to know how to say that? Read More

So today was Captain’s and my first day back in school this year. They had predicted snow around noon. My lesson started at noon. Read More
Nope, not the kind like when we were kids waiting for a school bus, and not the kind folks utilizing mass transit are waiting to board the train. This one involves stopping something bad from happening on a train. Read More
When the guard is worse than the fox
I’m sure we would all like to think that those employed by the government to be in positions of keeping us safe, keeping law-breakers at bay are good at their jobs. Less and less that is becoming the case. The BATFE is again showing it’s true colors with Ares Armor. Read more
Moochelle O-Super Bossy Nanny
While I used to tend to think of Nannies as nice things, like Julie Andrews in Mary Poppins, or perhaps Maria in the Sound of Music, or Nanny McPhee even, I don’t anymore. I think of them as ragin’ liberals like Mikey Bloomberg who is determined that you are NOT to have the drink of your choice. Read More
In The Hedgerow
Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Instead of talking about St. Patrick and snakes, let’s talk about freedom from snakes, ok? Read More
A Human Being, or Human Doing?
I’ve felt so many times to be so hip deep in alligators I should just name them and get them vaccinated. I can vaguely remember a life where I used to keep the house fairly (for me) clean, I sewed a lot, knitted, crocheted had a sense of humor, you know, was a real person! Read More
And Starring Barry Sotero in “Clueless”
Well, it seems little Barry has a long and proud history of setting up nations to be easy to invade or be conquered. The Daily Mail (British, the American Press would never point this out) has an interesting article. Seems little Barry, after being in office for a whole SEVEN MONTHS… Read More
In Times of Universal Deceit…
Possibly the last actual journalist of the dinosaur media has left the field. Sharyl Attkisson has resigned from SeeBS (CBS) news (harumph, choke, chuckle). Sharyl was an investigative journalist, meaning back in the old days, before…Read More
I haven’t had much time over the last few years to just read books I would like to. I tended to read more books I need to read. But as I’ve been shifting into another gear in life, waiting to see where God leads me, I’ve decided to turn over a new leaf. Yeah, it was a little tiny joke, new leaf? Read more

Riding On With Faith

To Fight or Not To Fight
So today what has been on my mind is the question to fight, or not. Some wars will never been won, but you fight them because it’s the right thing to do. You fight them because the alternative is to just give up and let evil succeed. We are seeing that WAY too much this days, in way to many arenas. Read More
Echoes of the Past, gun registration
When I first started really paying attention to Second Amendment Politics and shooting, someone brought up the movie Red Dawn. At the beginning of the movie the invaders (Russian and Cuban by the way) first stormed into Colorado Read More
But What If There Really IS A Fire?
I know I’ve heard it said that the first one that starts calling someone a nazi lost the argument. It’s sort of like calling someone a racist these days. It’s done to shut down discussion. You aren’t suppose to yell “FIRE” in a crowded theater either, unless there really IS a fire. Read More

Has Gunowners of America Opened Up A Ukraine Branch?
Reading about and watching videos of the recent violence in the Ukraine (and Venezuela) is a very vivid reminder of what happens to people who aren’t armed because they have the government to “take care of them and protect them”. Read More
To Correct Bad Behavior or Not?
How many times have you been in a store and seen a 3 year old brat giving his parents a fit. He/she wants a toy, wants it right now and if he/she doesn’t get it the whole store is treated to screams of boorish outrage. Then do you see the parent cringing under the unappreciative glares of fellow shoppers? (Response to my “attack” on the NRA)
Some Days It’s Great To Know Your Purpose
When you’re feeling lower than a snakes belly sometimes you just have to “Get Up, Mount Up and Ride On”. Isn’t that the truth! Riding with purpose, good stuff! Watch or listen to the message.
