First Shot!

Madison County's Health Department is handling vaccines in an admirable fashion. When we saw on their Facebook page that they were taking appointments for those over 75, I called at once and was given a time slot. A later call collected our insurance and health info. So yesterday, all we had to do was show up.  There was no waiting. We stayed in the car, masks on, while the charming provider verified our names. Then we signed a paper, bared our arms, and got the shots--all without leaving t...

Behind the Silicon Wall, Big Tech Targets Parler, AR15.com, Trump, & VCDL’s Lobby Day

ARFCOM Censored 01-11-2121 U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- In what can only be assumed to be a concerted effort by the technocracy, a new round of conservative purges hit social media platforms. Twitter banned the President of The United States shortly before also banning General Mike Flynn. This move came after protestors entered the Capitol Building on January 6th. President Trump called for calm and asked protestors to go home, yet that wasn’t enough for the social media giants not to take advant...

Senate Bean Soup

A while back, John expressed a wish for Senate Bean Soup--something I've made in the past and not liked all that much. But I made some on Tuesday and it was our supper on Wednesday night--a fitting meal for a day in which the Democrats won back the Senate (oh, yes, and there was an attempted coup in DC.) The soup was surprisingly good--though like the Senate, it does tend to produce a lot of gas. SENATE BEAN SOUP 1 pound dried Great Northern beans 2 smoked ham hocks (or 1 meaty ham bo...

Discover J.R.R. Tolkien’s Little-Known and Hand-Illustrated Children’s Book, Mr. Bliss

His were usually humorous stories, full of magic, and very often, they contained a connection to the children’s lives, because it was primarily for them that he invented them. –Sarah Zama The fact that “much of the inspiration of the Lord of the Rings came from [J.R.R. Tolkien’s] family,” Danielle Burgos writes at Bustle, has become an oft-repeated piece of trivia, especially thanks to such popular treatments of the author’s life as Humphrey Carter’s authorized biography, the Nicholas Hoult-sta...

Josie and the Princess in the Tower

Someone (Jayna?) asked for a video of Josie and the Castle People. Josie talks to them in a wee high voice that I can't always follow. And she keeps blocking the camera. Sigh.

Books Read in 2020

At the start of 2019 I gave myself a goal to read more books (in an effort to rekindle my inner bookworm), and this past year saw a continued growth in the number of books I read, which makes me very happy. Following the 11 I read in 2019, I got through 16 this past year, which falls just short of the goal of 18 I had given myself, which is close enough for me. I did hit some dead spots throughout the year where I didn’t read any, and a few (like Ametora, Pure Invention, and Killing the Bus...

How Many Prosecutions For Illegally Owned Suppressors Happen in the USA?

How Many Prosecutions For Illegally Owned Suppressors Happen in the USA? U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Very few people are prosecuted for the illegal possession of silencers/suppressors in the United States. One of the problems in understanding the U.S. criminal justice system is records are dispersed. Records are kept in many different formats, and not easily searchable or sortable by offense.
