Plenty of good races in the weekly scoring for Week Twenty-Six, as teams are vying for both the Mover & Shaker and the Basement Dweller in tied up fashions. Stacey M. and Neil lead the way in the top half of the standings, up with 19 points a piece.  Three more teams are within a shutout in that race, which is awfully exciting.

Medi-Share vs. Samaritan Ministries (2019 Review & Comparison)

It’s no secret that I have been using Medi-Share for my family as our health insurance alternative for years. I have enjoyed it and it has saved us a ton of money over the years. But in this video I sit down with a friend of mine who has been a long-time Samaritan member and we compare and contrast the differences between the two. So if you are looking at a Christian health sharing ministry (or know anyone who might be) this will definitely help. Get samaritan pr...

Outdoor Writer Re-Thinks Pistols as a Defense Against Bears

Outdoor Writer Re-Thinks Pistols as a Defense Against Bears U.S.A. –-( Many people have a difficult time changing their minds once they have formulated an opinion, especially once they have committed to the opinion on the record. I am happy to say fellow writer Wes Siler is of better material than that. In a June 2017 article, Wes was of the opinion that firearms, all firearms, were worthless as a defense against bears. He opined that statistically speaking, a person, when at...

The Best of the 2019 Mama Tried Motorcycle Show

There are only four or five months of good riding weather in the American Midwest. The rest of the time, motorcyclists keep sane by wrenching. And nothing offers more inspiration than the annual Mama Tried motorcycle show in Milwaukee. The sixth edition of the show happened just last weekend, shortly after the polar vortex was done ravaging the region. Visitors huddled away from the snow inside the Eagles Club—a ballroom and live music venue with a pseudo-psychedelic interior. Inside, cust...

Goalie Announcements (Jan 13)

It's an early start this morning, so it could be a bit of a rushed post today, but let's see how it goes, shall we?

Wild Women, Forty Pricks, and Western Noir

None Film critic Manny Farber, in typical inimitable style, summarized much of Samuel Fuller's film oeuvre through simultaneous praise and critique in the following observation: "What's good about his films is lovable; the daring, uninhibited use of semidocumentary techniques that save the movie from Fuller's mind, an unthinking morass at best" (Negative Space: Manny Farber on the Movies (New York: De Capo Press, 1998, 132).

Coming off a Mover & Shaker week, Wes' team is running white-hot these days, already posting 9 points on Monday night and ready to assault the top three here soon, if his team keeps up its pace.  Monday was also a pretty light night in the NHL, so it should come as no surprise that seven teams didn't post a single point, so the Basement Dweller race is alive and well too.  Thankfully, we've [Author: Clayton Corley]

This Week in Photography Books: Paris Visone

  I haven’t spent much time in Massachusetts. It’s true. Sure, I went there once or twice as a kid. Saw the Faneuil Hall. Probably ate some clam chowder. Went to a Red Sox game. But that was so long ago I barely remember it. There’s lots of red brick in Boston, right? I visited Northampton a few times when my wife was in graduate school, but even that was 20 years ago. And Northampton is its own little enclave, like Los Alamos in New Mexico. Most of what I know of Massachusetts comes from popula...

Created in late 2013, the group is not exactly new, but they have remained somewhat unrecognizable and wholly inaccessible until this year.
