From the Desk of John Rourke – February 21st, 2017


One of the best deals I’ve come across in knives is the Cold Steel GI Tanto. As I type this the price has dropped to $23.99 on Amazon. It comes with an excellent sheath and a very sharp carbon steel full tang blade.

Seeds are beginning to get stocked in stores. Heirloom seeds are often highly sought after but don’t pay inflated prices. Very often those seeds found in Dollar Tree and your local home improvement store in low-priced, budget packs are heirloom.

For a listing of ones to look out for check out my seed list in the Projects section.

I think John McCain has officially fallen off his rocker.

Are you ready for this? There is a movement to make that which once was taboo and kept in the shadows of society –  readily acceptable. Legalized same sex marriage – whether you agree with it or not – is just a step in the direction that those who believe pedophilia and bestiality should be as accepted as traditional marriage. Sounds crazy, huh? While I could care less what adults do in their bedroom and supported same-sex unions(and spousal benefits) prior to the Supreme Court ruling a few years ago – you give an inch they will take a mile.

I purposely have not linked to any news articles as I just do not want to give credit to any pro-pedophilia websites. You can check it out for yourself – or better yet don’t so you don’t have the sick, twisted feeling that I have in my gut right now. Folks, we often profess there is an attack on America and that for which it stands. If this does not provide a serious indication of that I don’t know what does.

Sorry for being a downer. It’s just another reason to keep up the fight.

Something for you….on the lighter side:

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!

NOTE: If you see a free Kindle book that you’re interested in get it now. Prices change often and there is no way to tell how long the book will remain free. Before purchasing a free Kindle book on Amazon make certain the book is still free by making sure the price is $0.00. If it lists a price or says “read for free” or has a price for prime members the book is not free anymore.
