From the Desk of John Rourke – December 29th, 2014

Being sick sucks. Last four days – feel just terrible. Really don’t feel like writing much. Hope it goes by soon. Emergency rooms, doctor offices and Urgent Cares all across the country are packed as sickness spreads.

Been thinking about lever action rifles lately. I have an old Winchester 94 lever action. The gun that won the West!

I watched “The Interview”. Probably one of the stupidest movies I have ever seen – but it did have some really funny parts. I didn’t pay anything to see it and I would not recommend paying to  watch it.

My exercise and diet plans have pretty much been blown the past couple weeks. Time to get back on track. Not uncommon for folks around this time of the year. No need to wallow in what has been done but just do what must be done.

  1. vodka and orange juice is a good thing when you are under the weather.. . . . would like to find an old 30-30 lever action, but every one I have seen seems way overpriced. . . .

  2. Rourke, hate that your down ill and hope your better soon. I am a nurse and have been looking into colloidal silver. A lot of research says its snake oil yet most of our serious dressings for wounds have silver in them. Tried some family (myself included) as tests subjects. The stuff works wonders. Drink it, wipe it, spread it, inhale it via nebulizer… What ever body system is affected, get it there. Just don’t go overboard. Follow the directions but use it. Silver biotics has been the brand I’ve used but it’s made through electrolysis so I don’t think there is great variable. My 2 cents to your health. Keep your head down and eyes up!
    Thanks for all you put out there.
