Backwoods Home magazine is back!

I was very excited to get an email today that Backwoods Home magazine will be back to publishing! A year ago they stopped publishing the magazine after almost 3 decades of it being around. I had been a subscriber for several years and have nearly 15 of their anthology books.  If you aren’t familiar with …

The reason I just looked at my medical prep books

The strangest thing just happened that had me a bit concerned for a few minutes. Done with work for the day I walked outside to enjoy some sunshine and watch the dog stalk squirrels. All of a sudden my vision was a bit distorted like I just looked at a bright light bulb. Nothing serious …

To the city I must go

I just found out that I will need to make a trip in the next few weeks to work from the main office of the company I work for. I’ll need to be there for the week and I am dreading it like an overdue dentist appointment. I lived in the city for several years …

The critters return

Sunday rambling

Sunday morning is here along with a fresh dusting of snow on the ground. I’m going through my routine of trying to be quiet in the house while others are sleeping and I catch up on some reading on various websites. I made some *cornmeal mush yesterday that I’ll cut into slices this morning and …

Thinking about SPAM

A little while back I was frustrated with the amount of Spam comments I was getting so soon after building this site. Well, that is now fixed after using a spam blocker – thank you, thank you, thank you. But, I haven’t been able to get it off my mind since. And, oh yes, I …

Dehydrated food – purchased

Being we live out away from town and it can snow like crazy here from time to time, I always like to have some food on hand that I have put away and don’t have to worry about. Not to mention should the job situation change abruptly and some extra food bought and paid for …
