Honestly, when it comes to using hardwood for defense, we’re admittedly pretty naive. We don’t pretend to be fighters, and, truth be told, we don’t want to be. We value the [...]
I love this version of “Ashokan Farewell.” It’s amazing what two well played instruments can do.
We came across this interesting article on whether or not a walking stick should be part of someone’s survival gear. Most of us don’t think about including a walking stick in survival preparations. But for some, a sturdy walking stick should be a key component in any emergency gear. Older people might need the stick [...]

… How do you size a walking stick or walking cane?
Made In USA. Made In America. American Made. Whatever the phrase, “pocketbook patriotism” (i.e., buying American-made products to help bolster American industry) is not only good for America, it’s good for consumers — and it appears to be on the rise. For decades, American ingenuity has been the engine under the hood of world industry. [...]

After my days at Baylor as a photojournalism student I used to shoot a “man on the street” piece for my local newspaper. It was an entry level, out-of-college gig that paid slightly better than flipping burgers. The idea was you go up to a person, ask them a question and then take their photo [...]
