Also, I must be getting old. They say that two things happen when you get old: you start to forget things, and I can't remember what the other is. Well, I must have forgotten to add Excels At Nothing to the blogroll here. Nancy's even cooking up springtime with Asparagus in French Rolls, which look completely yummy. Plus 80 caliber charcoal burners - what's not to like?
I followed a Sitemeter referral back to The Kodiak Files, where the picture he has at the top of his blog makes me drool. But he's not just a, err, pretty face - he brings good sense (especially for Murphy's Law, above):
We have always considered dogs as part of our family. My dog always goes where ever I go. I have even planned for my dogs in case TSHTF. Dogs are one of the most versatile tools a person can have in a survival situation. Dogs were one of the first domesticated animals and are called Man's best friend for a reason. A good dog can hunt, track, retrieve, carry supplies, they are good company, and can be trained to protect both people and property. In my opinion most dogs more productive than many of the people I know.Good advice, right there. If you have a four footed family member, you'll want to RTWT.
That is why I have packed a B.O.B for my dog.
Blogbrother PISSED is now blogging at The Feral Irishman. He finds cool stuff, like Double Chocolate Vodka (does your Bug Out Bag have one?). Plus, he beat me to Sonic Charmer's outstanding smackdown of the anti-war left. The real definition of "an expert" seems to be someone who's five minutes ahead of PISSED. Not so easy to do, it seems.
And last but not least, many of you have run across Bob Owens of Confederate Yankee. Bob also runs a shooting-focused blog, Bob's Gun Counter. Interesting stuff - for example, the old Russian armory at Tula seems to be privately owned now. Cool. Thanks for the blogroll, Bob.
Welcome to the Borepatch blogroll, everyone! And the usual note: if you have a link up to me and I haven't noticed, please send me an email or leave a comment.
