From the Desk of John Rourke – November 1st, 2016


The situation and tension between Russia and the United States continues to be eventful. Late last week it was reported that on October 17th there was a near miss in Syria where Russian and US military jets had a near collision.  How close? Within a half mile. Might not sound like a big deal but this involves two countries involved on opposite sides of a conflict…..that have massive amounts of nuclear weapons. Any type of direct conflict  – even accidental – would be very dangerous.

Enjoying the cooler weather as we head into my favorite part of the year. That time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is so special to me. I wish my parents were still alive so I could tell them about all the memories I have from my childhood during this time. They did a great job making my childhood memorable.

I have been off Facebook for a month or so. Found it was not a valuable use of time and find I really do not miss it. I deactivated my account so I can get back on when I feel like it. Will likely jump back on between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Working on a review of the Imalent DN12 1000 Lumen Flashlight. Taking some nighttime pictures right now. One of the most unique flashlights I have ever had. Beyond the powerful 1000 lumen beam the light is dimmable from 1000 lumens all the way down to 1 lumen. I have never seen this before. Pretty cool.

For $50 it’s a solid piece of equipment.
