The Freedom Outlaw’s Handbook, by Claire Wolfe. (This is an update to her classic book: 101 Things To Do ‘Til The Revolution.  Now with 179 subjects.)



Here is a movie that I can strongly recommend for your whole family:  The Ultimate Gift. Yes, it is a pro-Christian and pro-philanthropy message piece. And it is a bit sentimental.  But I wish that every entitled Millennial in the country could see it–because it would change them, for the better.  Oddly, the “movie stars” in the film (James Garner, Lee Meriwether, and Brian Dennehy) all played supporting roles. The lead roles were played by less well-known actors. They included: Drew Fuller, Abigail Breslin, Ali Hillis, and Bill Cobbs. But they all put in fine performances. The film was based on the novel The Ultimate Gift, by Jim Stovall. Not surprisingly, this movie had huge sales on DVD and inspired two sequels:  The Ultimate Life and The Ultimate Legacy.

The Last Ridge: The 10th Mountain Division. (A good documentary, available on DVD, or free streaming to those with Amazon Prime.)

Vitamix 5200 Standard Blender.  Perhaps the best blender on the market, built to last a lifetime. I recommend these to anyone who has a dairy cow, and uses their blender for making butter.  Other blends are not up to this sort of heavy use

  1. Here is something to do with practically but wonderfully nothing:
    I have been watching a lot of utube video’s on bible versions. And they always go on about leather covers. Bonded leather falls apart, well mine hasn’t and it is old (early 1980’s Purchase) and marked up.
    So here is a lesson to keep leather and bonded leather supple. (bonded will still be stiff)
    Saddle soap: take a wet (not soppy) rag, dip into the saddle soap and later up the bible. Let sit for just a minute or so, do not let dry completely. Then take a damp, I said damp, rag and remove excess suds. Let completely dry. Buff with dry cloth. Now that you have your grime off.
    Then use clear BOOT CREME on it.
    WOW is what I say.
    Do this once a year or when you want to show love for it.
    I even gave wonderful hope to bibles I found at the thrift store.
    So take care of your bible.
