Hey- long time no write. I’ve been busy and on vacation and, frankly, uninspired to write anything.
I got a chainsaw. Went to a gunshow. Went camping, and I’ve been doing a lot of reading.
I listened to the Fountain Head, by Ayn Rand on audio tape. Very good. I recommend it to all.
Also, finished up Liberty and Tyranny, by Mark Levin. Very good read for anyone. Especially conservatives- there is a conservative manifesto at the back which basically spells out all of our beliefs on nearly every major topic. (At least my beliefs…)
I was on Foxnews.com the other day and saw this small drainage tunnel that was converted to a living space. I thought there might be some application for those considering a makeshift bomb-shelter/hidey hole. You could attach different connectors (Like a 4 way) and have different rooms. Not sure about the cost of these- but I think it could be waterproof, fire proof, concealable, expandable, offer some level of ballistic protection. Challenges would be logistics, making it water-tight on the doors, making the portals, wiring, leveling, and convincing anyone to live in it…
Anyways, my garden is doing well. I’ve learned a lot this first year. I’m already planning what I’ll do next spring. I’ve learned that lettuce isn’t that good of a plant for nutrition and unless you can chill it for a few days, it tastes gross. I’m going to do more tomatoes and potatoes. Plant some corn. Do more greenbeans and squash. Forget strawberries. Forget kale, greens… and others.
