A few things that have been on my mind…….
- Christmas is coming. There…..I said it. Man, this year has gone by fast. Someone told me once that the older you get the faster time goes by because each moment is an ever smaller portion of your entire life. Wish that was not true. Anyways – looking to get Christmas shopping out of the way for the kids.
- Been trying to read too many books at once lately. I am almost finished with Survivors by JWR. I am about two-thirds complete and so far I really like it. Also I have been reading through Holding Your Ground (review upcoming), The TEOTWAWKI Tuxedo (review upcoming), The Survival Template, and Surviving Off-Grid. I have bought a few of these on the Kindle.
- Speaking of the Kindle – I love this thing. I know that it may not be EMP-proof, but the Kindle is so convenient. Books are generally cheaper, they download quick & easy, the screen looks just like paper, and you can carry literally thousands of books in one small and lightweight device. Right now – you can buy one for as little as $79.00. Oh, they can also store and view pdf’s. In a couple weeks the new Kindle Fire is coming out. This thing is full color and more of a mix between a book reader and a computer.
Check out this video on the Kindle Fire:
- Just finished watching both seasons of Jericho. I liked the first season better – but enjoyed the second as well. Wish it had never been cancelled but not really sure where the show would have gone from where it ended.

- Went to an outdoor shooting range this past Thursday with buddy MW – great time. Had an opportunity to shoot my Stag AR as well as M1 Carbine. MW brought along his Remington 700 SPS .308 Winchester. We shot as far as 300 yards looking through the 9X Burris scope – simply awesome. I was amazed as I was able to shoot about a sub-3″ group at 200 yards (target is hanging in my garage). I mean – I have never shot this gun before. Pretty good performance I think. I really want to get get one.
- I am loving this season of The Walking Dead. You would figure there is only so much you can do with the whole zombie story – but so far it is very interesting and entertaining.
- On a serious note – I continue to be concerned with events in the Middle East. Countries are changing leadership – though I am not seeing replacements being very advantageous. Iran continues with their nuclear program which no doubt Israel is watching closely – and getting ready. Overall the area remains very unstable and ripple effects could travel to other parts of the world.
Well – gotta go. Some un-dead are clawing at the front door. Gotta go get my machete.
