    Half of the fucking U.S. is covered with snow and we’re still going to ‘Spring forward’ this weekend. March 8 is the earliest date we’ve ever transitioned into Daylight Saving Time, and that’s bullshit. How in the fuck can we “Spring forward” when it is not yet even Spring? In all of the 97 years that the U.S. has observed Daylight Savings, March 8 is the earliest date on which we have ever set the clocks forward. We are only 66 days into the new year and still 13 days from Spring. I will note that this is not the first time we have switched to Daylight Saving Time on March 8.

  • Being Right – See Why Sometimes It’s Wrong

    Everyone likes being right. I know I do! I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who deliberately chooses to be wrong & have the wrong opinions about something. But since people do have different views about things, everyone can’t be right all the time – even me. That’s something I struggle with. When I know I’m right, I want people to recognize it & acknowledge it. I suppose it’s pride, but not the good kind. The kind that makes you think more highly of yourself than you should. It’s something that I’m working to try to be better at.

  • The City That Was: Literary Walks in Golden Gate Park After Dark

    P Segal - Bohemian Archivist
    5 Mar 2015 | 2:36 pm
    In The City That Was, Bohemian Archivist P Segal tells a weekly story of what you all missed: the days when artists, writers, musicians, and unemployed visionaries were playing hard in the city’s streets and paying the rent working part time. In the years when you didn’t need a lucrative, full-time job to survive here, the city was a 24/7 playground. There were things to do in the late night hours, for the people who didn’t have to get up in the morning, and there seemed to be a lot of us looking for things to do. Many events started at midnight and kept people entertained until the…

    Suddenly it hit me. We are DOING IT! After years of dreaming about moving to the Redoubt, planning, plotting, learning new skills, understanding what is important, we are finally doing it. I am scared and excited at the same time. We have two more months of frantic remodeling and updating our home, in order to get top dollar, and then we’ll put the house on the market. After searching for property in Idaho online and with the help of several couples who live in Idaho and a realtor recommendation, it’s time to make a couple of trips out and get serious about finding the right property.
  • Looking For a New Offshore Server For SurvivalBlog

    Hugh James Latimer
    5 Mar 2015 | 10:04 pm
    Since we no longer have a backup server in Sweden (a long story of which I’ll spare you the details), we are now looking to lease another dedicated offshore backup server for SurvivalBlog. This needs to be a dedicated server with very stable power (preferably hydroelectrically-sourced), 99%+ uptime, and rock-solid stable IP addresses. (Our IP address cannot change, once it is established.) Keep in mind that this server must be capable of regularly handling 25 mbps. We’d also like it to be in a country that is not excessively buddy-buddy with the U.S. government. However, at the…
  • What’s the Story Behind ATF “Banning” 5.56mm Ammo?

    Hugh James Latimer
    5 Mar 2015 | 10:04 pm
    (. . . and what can you do about it?) By Glenn D. Bellamy, Armorer-at-Law® There’s been no shortage of misinformation and hyperbole about an ATF memo released on February 13th reported to “ban AR15 ammo”. The memo describes a “framework” by which ATF proposes it would consider requests for “sporting purpose” exemptions under the federal statute banning the manufacture, importation, or sale (but not possession) of “armor piercing” projectiles. I’ve searched and researched the law and the facts behind it with passion over the last two weeks. I’m tempted to write a…

  • Mentors – Why You Need Them To Succeed In Life

    18 Feb 2015 | 1:28 am
    Successful People Have Mentors Almost without exception, every successful person will tell you that they had help along the way. Someone coached them, taught them, and guided them along the path toward their success. Business people, spiritual leaders, athletes, and any other area where you find people who have achieved success, you will hear stories of those who helped them get where they’re at.   Usually our first mentors in life are our parents, grandparents & other family members. Then hopefully our teachers in school, coaches for those who play sports, scout leaders or…

  • You Are Responsible!

    BigMike
    23 Jan 2015 | 9:45 am
    You built your life If we are ever going to find true success in any aspect of our lives, we have to realize that we are the ones who are ultimately responsible. All of the credit, and the blame, rests on our own shoulders. Both good and bad things happen to all of us. But our attitudes, our actions, and our life philosophy is what determines whether we will succeed or fail, not our circumstances. Not matter what your story is, someone else has had a harder life, and they chose to succeed, so they did. It’s not anyone else’s fault! Stop blaming your parent’s, or your boss,…

    Our world is full of distractions. We’re overloaded with information that comes at us, literally, at the speed of light. Television, radio, email, text messages, Facebook, Twitter….honestly, I can’t keep up with half of it even if I try. So I stopped trying for a lot of it.  I believe that 99%+ of what’s on television is a complete waste of time, so I watch very little television. I enjoy music, but I don’t listen to music at home, & most of the time when I’m in the car I’m listening to some sort of audiobook or CD. When Marisa and/or the kids…
