Nothing going on up on the mountain worth writing about. Here are a few things I wanted to surface anyway.
I don't know how many folks out there have been reading the "5 Acres and a Dream" blog, I've been enjoying it for a long time. Leigh and her husband Dan are good folks. They live on their homestead, raise farm animals, and lead a simple and satisfying life. Leigh writes books on homestead related matters, and Dan does jobs to make some cash money, whatever he can turn his hand to.
But recently he was badly injured , and because they don't have health insurance (as a great many people don't because it costs too much) they have incurred a lot of medical bills, plus he can't work right now.
They have helped other people over the years, when the opportunity arose, and one of Leigh's friends told her to set up a "Go Fund Me" account so people could return the favor. She was reluctant but the need was pressing, so she did. It is going well. I wanted to mention it, as I know from time to time all of us need help, and all of us give help.
Here's the link to her web page.
Some general housekeeping notes:
- I have friends who are looking for either an Indian Ishapore 2A, or an Israeli mauser. If you come across one at a flea market, pawn shop, on line, or anywhere else, will you please let me know? I'll pass the word on to them.
- Still looking for French 7.5 MAS military surplus ammo, both for myself and for another individual who would like some. At this point, I don't expect to find any, but if anyone hears of some of that ammunition for sale, please let me know. Just enter a comment on the most current post. I don't worry about Off Topic things.
- Had a request from a gentleman up in North Carolina for recommendations on a tactical flashlight. I have seen some reviews in the different survival magazines, but I can't recommend anything based on actual hands on experience. I would appreciate any recommendations. Just leave a comment on this post.
That's about it.

I agree with her.
