What Would You Do?

Just had a hair raising close call here last week. One of my neighbors has two very large German Shepherd dogs. He lets them run loose when he is with them - actually allows them to chase him when he's on an ATV - and they never seemed to be a problem until last week.

Do You Smile Every Day?

[Originally published at The Price of Liberty. Thought I'd share this with you here. Learning to live this way is one of the secrets of my contentment and health since I moved to Wyoming. :) ML]

What’s the Value of One’s Work?

So I’ve been working at the spa for almost a month now. I didn’t realize how challenging the transition from working alone in the quiet of my home to being in a bustling business full of people was going to be. Truth be told, I’m still adjusting to that. I’m also realizing that I may not be able to fully acclimate to it. But other aspects of the job are going very well.

Success Is Mine!

First things first: I hope everyone had a lovely holiday season! The snolfs and I continue to enjoy our quasi-Scandinavian winter solstice celebrations... even though this year’s festivities were a bit more subdued than in years past, largely because I was still busy with massage-related work.

Gratitude Meditation

I never really knew my father, since he died when I was four years old. It is impossible for me to sift out any actual memories I might have from the stories and photographs mother shared with us while my sister and I were growing up. I do know he was the product of the Scottish Highlands, both of his parents having come from Scotland in the mid 1800s. He was quiet, frugal, and very much an independent spirit. He was gentle and loving, hard working and beloved by family and friends.

I Knew I Was Right to Remain Down on Medical Insurance

I haven’t kept up with the reports and rumors (which can be hard to distinguish from one another, I admit) that purport to provide us with information on how Obamacare is faring since its partial implementation. Now that my classmates and I are on the brink of becoming massage therapists, however, the massage program is starting to focus on issues such as business and marketing, which includes the all-important matter of doing one’s best to ensure one is paid for work done. I wasn’t surprised—but was quite disappointed, for more than the obvious reason—to discover that health insurance is increasingly not covering massage.

STOP!!! Or I'll Yell STOP Again!

'Active Shooter' Drills Spark Raft of Legal Complaints
Wall Street Journal on-line DENVER—When Michelle Meeker approached a strange man last October at the Colorado nursing home where she worked, the man flashed a gun and forced her into an empty room as she tearfully begged for her life, she said.

Sellout: JPFO to be handed off to SAF — unless we stop it

From Claire Wolfe's blog:
Sellout: JPFO to be handed off to SAF — unless we stop it

Somebody reminded me this week of that statement from Aaron, the late, great founder of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership. That was how Aaron contrasted himself and JPFO with Alan Gottlieb and Gottlieb’s SAF/CCRKBA.

A blast from the past!

Liberty: The Gold That Does Not Glitter
By The Hunter, Knight of Non-Aggression

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

"The Dunadan", B. Baggins
(JRR Tolkien, "The Fellowship of the Ring")

Ladies and Guns

Long ago, I started posting a series of articles drawn from my experience as a firearms and self defense instructor. Got sidetracked and am just now getting back to it. This addresses two of the classic questions I've gotten through the years, and the answers I've found to be the most helpful.

Children and Safety - new at JPFO

Children and Safety
By MamaLiberty

By what process do "children" become adults? How do people become responsible for themselves, rather than dependent on others for their lives and safety? What part does chronological age have to do with it?
