Went to the dentist today for a normal check up. Everything was fine, thank goodness. Going to the dentist is a white knuckle affair for me event today. My childhood experiences with a dentist were all very painful. I remember him telling me “This won’t hurt if you understand the difference in pressure and pain.” […]

Laura recently sealed some more food to our long term storage stash by sealing it into mylar bags. We didn’t have the 5-gallon buckets to place the mylar bags into so I went to a home improvement store today and picked up 10. I’m puzzled why they would sell the buckets and lids separately, but […]

The packages from Cheaper Than Dirt arrived yesterday. One box contained the red-dot scope and mounting bracket my Saiga .308. I haven’t had a chance to site it in yet, but I’m looking forward to it.

As I was feeding the animals this morning, I noticed that the temporary hog pen needed some minor repairs. I found some spare wire and fixed it so that Ollie, our hog, would remain safe and sound in his abode. This temporary pen only has to last another couple of months, until it has cooled […]

Started the day off by paying bills; did it before breakfast and more or less lost my appetite. I really dislike paying bills. It’s a good exercise since it forces you to examine your expenditures monthly, but it’s chore that costs me valuable time that I cannot get back. I’m glad that I don’t have […]
