That was the headline which greeted me this morning as I read through the news.
Medical personnel at border camps housing those illegal alien children have been warned not to talk about conditions at those camps, specifically the medical conditions of the children.

Well someone decided to speak out, here is the story.
Medical staff warned: Keep your mouths shut about...

I've been following the stories on Drudge Report. There's three today, last couple of weeks there was only one or two new ones per week. This is the nastiest and scariest bug I've ever seen. The disease has jumped borders into at least three countries and considering the lack of infrastructure there may be many, many more active cases of Ebola than the media is telling us.

The death toll reported has varied from 200 to over 600+ depending on the source, now...

Anybody monitoring the Ebola outbreak ?

A man wakes up in the hospital bandaged from head to foot.

The doctor comes in and says, "Ah, I see you've regained consciousness. Now you probably won't remember, but you were in a huge pile-up on the freeway. You're going to be okay, you'll walk again and everything, however, your penis was severed in the accident and we couldn't find it."
The man groans, but the doctor goes on, "You have $9000 in insurance compensation coming and we now have the technology to build a new penis....

I searched and did not find what people are using for a BOV. I want to hear thoughts on your idea of a good BOV. I am not talking the DHS MRAP. This is an obtainable vehicle you already own or plan to buy. I personally have two. First go to is a 2007 FJ Cruiser 4x4, MANLEY ORV trailer. Second is my Honda FourTrax Rincon. I will be adding an ATV Wagon 1600 AL as soon as funds allow. My justification behind these two are the location I live and where I have to get. Being that I am in an urban...

What are you using as your BOV?

My wife is a total fitness nut, I mean enthusiast. She does rough water swims in the ocean (last one was two miles), trains in the pool, runs everywhere (last trail run was 22 miles), and still works out. She works out 2-3 times a day on average. Phew, I'm tired typing all that.

Today, she was out running while I took my oldest monkey to tennis. My wife did about an hour and a half run, same as tennis practice today. She was all excited that she ran into a group of horses. Is a all herd...

For many reasons, one of which was OPSEC considerations, I did not reveal...

Saw a good friend today, who gave me an old jitte/jutte. Thanks buddy. I didn't name you because I didn't know if you wanted me to or not, but will if you want me to. Or should I have said I had lunch with an old friend who gave me a good jutte? Either way, thanks!

Ash 1. Yesterday, I rode my bike a couple hundred miles to watch Tommy's friends and his mother and sister make their last jump with him. His ashes were released from inside a flag deployed by his best friend. My ride home was very contemplative and healing. The video of the jump is on my Facebook page.

One of the hardest parts of being a "prepper" (and I don't really like that term) is getting your friends and family on board. It is hard to get your wife and kids to care, much less get excited about preparedness.

So I started designing a card game that would educate while having fun!
It isn't for sale yet, I am just hoping to get some feedback!

Here is a quick video

Ok, it's been probably a year plus since I got the flint and steel kits from Bear and hadn't done anything with them. While I was packing my very unsurvivalist computer bag this morning I got to thinking, why don't I have one of them in my bag?

Well, I got the box out and realized my wife hadn't seen it yet so I opened the large one and took it out to show her. Showed her all the goodies that Bear packed as extras and then unwound the jute from the already flaked flint.

It's been a...

On Tuesdays, I keep my body heaters going all day. Start it up around 9am when I teach my first two tai chi classes. Then a lunch break and then my two hour class.

My triple heaters are engaged all day and I am perspiring all day.

Went with Korean between tai chi today. Partly because the wifee and I watched a really good Korean movie last night. The Masquerade was very well done.

I am planning to pick up some additional bulk 30-round magazines and I am finally looking at changing from the traditional aluminum body type to the PMAG if there is a positive benefit. I know they have been on the market for some time and have been used in the mil service. I have not used the PMAG's more than a couple of times when using associates weapon's, but liked them and they seemed to perform well. During my military period we used nothing but the aluminum bodied magazines and never...

If you are doing PB and losing weight , lets keep a running total of combined weight loss and see where we end up in a year?
When you post to this thread add your lbs lost to the total from the previous post. Then put it in the bottom of your post so its easy for the next to take that and add their pounds loss.
If your not doing the program and just want to add to the conversation, just take the total and put in your post so its current.
I'll start:

All through high school, most of his classmates picked on Tim Phillips and the teasing continued into his adult life. Tim never stood up for himself - it wasn’t so much he was afraid - because he’d learned to conquer his fears - no, he remained timid because it was simply his nature.
He was a solitary soul who never went on outings with his coworkers and preferred to be alone. His attention to detail, coupled with his timid nature, caused the people around Tim...

I finally figured out what we have been doing wrong! I've heard that many folks make the mistake of constructing their tinfoil hats out of aluminum foil, since tin sheet is not something normally found at the local hardware stores. For the same thickness aluminum is less dense and not nearly as effective as tin, something to keep in mind, maybe a sheet of lead hat would be best?

Great day today. My wife did a two mile rough water ocean swim, so I took the monkeys to eat. You guys knew food would be involved somehow, right?


We had our 4H meeting today, so we spent the afternoon on a guided botanical tour. Here are some of (read a lot) of the tree and plant pictures. Pardon my focus, was using the phone camera.
