From the Desk of John Rourke – January 12th, 2017


I listened to quite a bit of the Q&A with Jeff Sessions at his confirmation hearing on Day 1. Thought he gave some great answers. Political opposition is what it is – political opposition.

Ordered my 3rd pair of Merrell hiking shoes – love ’em. None are wore out just found some good deals and took advantage. I have two pair I wear now and the third will be put away. Waterproof – and super comfortable.

Something I do not hear much about in the preparedness community is concern over a pandemic. Seems that it is only a matter of time before a major outbreak occurs. I suppose statistically chances are so small that most – like myself – are concerned with other things. Just started reading The Jakarta Pandemic. So far really good.
