The citizens of Israel are supposedly a leader of the free world in being well-trained in preparation, self-defense, situational awareness, and tactical readiness. But the recent Muslim invasion inside their borders proves that not to be the case. Since yesterday, Muslims have taken hundreds of women and children from their homes. Many have been kidnapped, raped, tortured,
We’ve always had a wood-burning fireplace. But this Tennessee home is our first propane gas fireplace. We’ve grown to like it better. And now that I’ve upgraded our original Skytech system to a Sky-5301 LCD remote, we are ready to roll come winter. And now along with the on/off option, we can set the thermostat,
This immediate area is highly populated with snakes. I saw this venomous Copperhead about 50’ from where I spotted this Water Moccasin. I don’t always have a camera, or when I do, the snakes slither away before I get a shot. In this encounter, I was tasked with handling my snake tongs in one hand,
As we drove down the driveway our Donkey was overly excited to see us. So I parked, then played with Jackson before we went inside. In his rambunctious display of love and affection, he accidentally busted the inside of my lip. That’s when my wife hit record. Jackson loves it when I play with him.
While driving I saw a large Vulture attacking a large snake. By the time I approached the snake, he was expiring. We’re new in the South, so I am still learning Tennessee Snakes. I believe this is a Gray Rat Snake or one from the Water Snake family? Please let us know in the comments.
Compared to last year at this time, Snakes are more plentiful and everywhere. Thankfully we were able to get the camera going before he did the lickity split. When I was a kid I used a stick, but now that I’ve been reintroduced into country life, I ordered a pair of snake tongs. Then I’ll be
We’ve been in Tennessee for 12 months, and this was the first time I felt it necessary to go underground, and it’s a great prayer place. It was not an average tornado as we’ve previously experienced. It was part of a Tornadic Supercell that created simultaneous chaos and fatal devastation among multiple States. I was
I guess a man is never too old to enjoy life like a boy. While inside the house, I saw some of our chickens chasing a hen that had something hanging from her mouth. I wasn’t wearing my eyeglasses, so it was too blurry to discern right away. It’s a Red Bellied Snake, aka Storeria
Though I’ve enjoyed sharing our progress as we build and move towards being more self-sustainable. But this unexpected cost did not fit into our budget or the criteria of that goal plan, and it set us back in other areas. Nonetheless, it was an important project. When we purchased our home, the inspector for escrow purposes
This is one of many reasons we escaped California. This is a 20-round magazine. What’s the big deal? This is for a handgun that shoots rifle rounds, and it shoots armor piercing ammo. May I introduce to you, my new Ruger 5.7, Davidson’s Dark Earth w/a Riton Red Dot. A handgun that shoots rifle rounds,
One way professing Christians can examine themselves is how their attitude responds to the weather. In California, many grown men whined when it was “too hot.” And then they grumbled when it was “too cold.” Now in Tennessee, I’m experiencing this Freezing Rain phenomenon, but thankfully I hear less complaining. I guess some of the
The last time I applied medicine for Pink Eye was on horses, and that was ointment. Today I went to Stockdale’s and all they had was spray, and so I applied it according to the directions. I regret not shopping for ointment. #Donkeys
Some of you have enjoyed going on this virtual ride with us. Thankfully our Shop has been completed, and it is already in use. Though our radio room will not be in the shop. Hopefully, in the future, I will erect another radio tower somewhere behind it for one of our High-Frequency antennas. In the meantime, I have
We’ve been in Tennessee for ten months now, and are right-on schedule in making our homestead more self-sustainable. This week an Electrician installed our Generac 26kW Guardian Series Whole House Generator. Twenty-Six thousand watts is plenty to run everything in our home. And the model we chose has more bells and whistles than we’ll ever use.
