From the Desk of John Rourke – April 24th, 2017


Spent some time outdoors this past weekend working in the garden and yard. Really want to enjoy the outdoors a lot more this summer. Kayaking, hiking, backpacking, fishing, and exercising.

Have more to do in the garden. Last year I lost everything after a severe storm rolled through and flooded all the top soil out. I’ve divided the garden in half with raised beds on one side – and regular on the other. So far things are growing well. A combination of seeds and purchased transplants have been used and more need to be put in the ground. Recent rains have really helped. I water out of two rain barrels as much as possible.

I’m surprised. A Washington Post poll shows that if the election was held today Trump would still win. With all the Fake News and the stumbling that his administration has been involved with, I figured it would not have worked out that way.

Will there be a government shutdown this week? I would care less except for the politics involved in it. The MSM will use it to feed their agenda – regardless of what the truth is.

Trump wants funding for “the Wall” included in the next budget. Would love to see it.

I mentioned the other day that there are often supplies that we fail to stock up on because although useful – they are just not fun and exciting. Books often sit in this category. There is one book in particular that I highly recommend is purchased due to its invaluable information. The Survival Medicine Handbook is in its third edition and contains 700 pages of lifesaving reference material. I’m going to do a separate write up on the book another time and until then if you do not own it consider investing the funds to get it. At just under $40.00 it is worth every penny.

There are many reasons why so many love their Kindle and Amazon Fire tablets. One huge advantage is you could literally go years without every buying a book to read as there are tons of free eBooks available. Don’t have a Kindle or Fire? No problem. There are apps that can be installed on most any cell phone or computer for free. No excuses!

If it lists a price or says “read for free” or has a price for prime members the book is not free anymore.
