Of course, a lot of people hate conservative talk radio. I learn things from it, though. When I hear something interesting, I start looking for newspaper articles on line that amplify or confirm what I heard. Rarely do I find I've been mislead. So Rolling Stone (which created the pastiche above) and people like that can listen to Moon Bat radio. If they can find any.
Sirius XM Patriot Channel has pretty good programming. And as long as there is no thunderstorm booming outside, it comes in crystal clear.
I almost never watch television anymore, although I hear that the Discovery Channel has a pretty good series about living in Alaska. Just heard of it today and will have to tune in. Personally, I haven't seen any really good survival shows since the last Les Stroud programs were on. Something decent to watch would be welcome.
The last time we were in town, I picked this magazine up on the cheap. I think it only cost six dollars. It's got some good recipes in it, and would make a great basic primer for someone just getting into cast iron cooking.
Got a couple of new catalogs. Budk, the go to source for reliable and inexpensive knives, swords, and whatever else they happen to have dredged up lately came in.
The catalog is free, and ever so often I buy something. I got my Roman swords from them, nice walls hangers and perfectly functional. I also bought some small steel and wood hatchets specifically made for throwing, and I have fun sticking them in trees when I feel motivated. You never know what they will come up with.
I got this catalog for the first time. It's BukK related, but less about edged weapons and more about surplus camping gear. Again, it's free and there were some interesting things in it. I put the back cover on this post so that if anyone wants a catalog they know where to get it.
Just as an aside, I noticed Readers Digest was devoting this months cover to a survival oriented article. I'm not sure if this was a joke, because the article itself is bizarre beyond words. It's not very useful, with wisdom like "if you get lost you need water so try to find some." Lots of the article is devoted to how to handle things like how to survive election season.......
If it was a serious article, it was pathetic. If it was tongue in cheek, I missed the humor in it.
Remember about a month ago some crook got my credit card number and was trying to buy gas out in Arizona. Today I got a call from USAA and they wanted to know if I had made a $500 purchase at Victoria's Secret. I told the woman calling that was for younger people than us, and we were more likely to be making purchases at the Geriatric store.
Thought for the day.
