I have been having an interesting conversation with a friend on precious metals, how to transfer them, and banking in general. It reminded me of this book. It's an old one, but this man actually did all the things that most of us discuss in theory. It's an interesting book, a useful book, and one you might like to read in these "troubled" times. A lot of us might be putting into practice some of the things he did.
New magazines out recently.
The article on pocket books is interesting, although the books reviewd mainly pertain to Les Stroud type emergencies in the wild.
There's a long article on raising chickens. Suddenly raising chickens is a big interest and just about every magazine even vaguely related to self sufficiency is carrying articles about chickens. Did I miss something?
Lots of good reviews of equipment, and a pretty good discussion of Bugging In and Bugging Out.
This is a particularly good issue of Military Surplus. They've got some great information on modern military surplus weapons, on the Civil War, and on commonly available surplus weapons out there today.
Well, time to finish up. I have some last minutes things to do before everybody gets here. The ferrets have already been relocated to the lower level of the house. That way the puppy won't hurt them. Also, I don't want them crossing paths with Iggy, for all that he is purported to be quite benign if you don't cross him.
Got the apartment all spiffed up and it will get some use for a change. I still need to make a run to the store. My son has a favorite beer and I'd like to have some of that cold and on hand when he gets in, just a few other things to pick up.
