A stay by the fire day.
Raining again. This weather is supposed to get worse by the weekend. As I have most of the week, I'm staying in by the fire.
Today I'm reading Genesis 1948 about the first arab- Israeli war. I think I've read it about 6 times now, but it's a good book and always interesting.
It's good military history. Then too, I like Israelis and I detest arabs. There's that, too. Except the Jordanians.
The new American Survival Guide quarterly is out. It primarily addresses natural disasters in this issue.
I always enjoy their equipment reviews. In this issue, they didn't go with the top end gear, but highlighted affordable things that the average individual could buy. I found a couple of radios in the reviews that fill some gaps in my inventory and are within my means.
These magazines tend to be for beginners, but I regard the articles as refresher training, and sometimes I do get new ideas from them. I also enjoy the reviews because once in awhile they go over equipment I really want. It's like a Consumer Reports for survivalists.
This particular magazine costs $9.00 but I get my money's worth of enjoyment out of it.
So, unless something unforeseen happens, today will be a quiet, coffee drinking by the fire day. I am about due for a day when I don't have to work on anything and can just relax.
Here's a good short video sent to me by a friend. It pretty well sums up the fascination and allure of the old guns.
