Threat assessment, Middle East War

This is not a chicken little update. The core to developing your own resiliency is to accurately identify the areas of your life where you are NOT resilient and work to make them increasingly so, all the while improving your life if nothing fails.

Make Something!

So, I got out in the shop this weekend and here are the results. Honestly, they are pretty pathetic. The woodwork on the knife handle is sloppy, mis-cut and I will have to redo it. On the plus side, I peened the brass rod to hold the slabs on and it seems to have worked […]
