    Commissars a’ coming

    Not news, but my gut feeling prediction: Commisars are coming to our lives. excuse me, not “commissars”, that’s a bit on-the-nose, but “equity compliance officers”. If one doesn’t know what Commissars were, Wikipedia it. This was already partially going on with colleges, but will become...

    Attention Hogg starts a pillow company...

    So David “Attention Whore who was not even there, but is not AOC” Hogg announces that he’s starting his own pillow company, because he’s too stupid to come up with his own idea and some other dude with pillows is getting more attention...

    Learning to live off the land in So MD?

    When I was a kid in Eastern Europe, my grandparents ate a good part of their diet from the forest - mushrooms, berries, etc, and collected many medicinal herbs for various ailments. That came from hundreds of generations of self-reliant farmers living and thriving at basically subsistence...

    An anniversary of sorts

    Today my family celebrated 25 years coming to America. :patriot: Now I have officially spent more than 2/3 of my life here, but still can’t shake the accent. Funny that out of those, half were spent with my LW — either “living in sin” or married. She agrees that it’s time wasted :p Dang...

    Celebrate Christmas properly, peoples!

    It’s the day after Christmas, and most people toss out the trees and take down the lights. Stores clear out anything to do with winter and put up Valentines Day decor. A greeting of “Merry Christmas!” now is answered with “huh? You late or something?” In a traditional sense, only now, during...

    Planning on getting a puppy — dang PawPatrol!

    Just thinking aloud, and looking for advice: i got myself into a bit of a bind, and appreciate any input. So, I ran my big fat mouth and promised one of my kids a puppy. It’s ok — I really wanted a dog myself, except ... the kid is fanatical about Marshall on PawPatrol, who is a Dalmatian...

    Manual well pump system for the upcoming civil strife?

    As detailed in most survival literature, water is second only to air in survival. Food comes way after. Thankfully, our mid-Atlantic region is abundant in water, but most people are not prepared to harvest it, if SHTF. Most of us here in SoMD are on individual wells and septic systems, so...

    COVID: what's next?

    How do y'all expect this to go, long-term? With reports of secondary infections in previously recovered patients, and the fact that COVID family of viruses have never before been conquered by a vaccine, I am extremely doubtful that an effective preventive measure will even be found. (maybe...

    Hispanic Heritage Month

    Let’s celebrate it by remembering the one guy who got it right! Crabby and gun smoke would have been guaranteed a helicopter ride!

    An ode to So MD

    Just took the fam to St Mary’s City for some local history. As always, got caught up just taking in the beauty around us. Sat in the sand next to the river, looking over its expanse. Beautiful white clouds rolling by, lush greenery on the banks as far as the eye could see. Ospreys taking care...

    Shout out to J2 Defense

    Just wanted to say something nice about a local Calvert Co business — J2 Defense. Very nice full profile gun shop, stocked really well for their size, with nice selection of firearms and ammo. What really sets them apart is the customer service — they are an absolute pleasure to visit and do...

    Any "Back the Blue" marches in our area?

    Does anyone know of any upcoming "Back the Blue" events in our area? I saw that the last one was in Calvert in 2016 (?), nothing recently.

    Did US join the wrong side in WWI?

    It being 100 some years since the Great War, I have been pondering... Did US join the wrong side in 1916? Several authors tried to play on this (Turtledove, other alt history masters). On the one hand, you have two multi-ethnic, multi-confessional countries, leaders in industry, science...

    SoMD group trip to see Sabaton?

    Sabaton is touring! Sabaton is touring! So far, the date is Sept 9. Oh, and some other band, Jumas Prest? or something (who cares) is also playing. Ladies and gents, let's do a group SoMD trip to see them! (Sabaton -- Swedish heavy metal rock band, songs about war in general, and men...

    Sand blasting old furniture?

    All, does anyone have a sand blasting setup? I love restoring old furniture (mostly sand down, repair what needs, repaint -- use!), and recently acquired several old wooden pieces that have too many beautiful turned parts to sand by hand (or with a power sander). If anyone has a sandblasting...

    All those govs... they look weird

    Reading the latest news about governors that did draconian state shutdowns, it dawned on me... The male govs have something common among them -- they all look like cucks. PA gov, WI gov, CO gov... Same as our dear Frosh. Not a drop of testosterone among them. The female gov (MI) looks like...

    Israeli plan for re-opening

    Just read something very logical and clear, unlike anything Kung Flu- related so far: Israel has a four-step process for re-opening the country after quarantine, with two weeks between each step...

    NY Dems trying confiscations, with NG help

    So, Commie Cuomo just deployed National Guard to confiscate ventilators and "unused medical PPE", https://www.breitbart.com/health/2020/04/03/andrew-cuomo-deploys-national-guard-to-redistribute-ventilators-in-ny-dont-use-the-word-seize/ It seems these tin-pot dictators are using this to go...

    Cat sanctuary at Bennett O. Hughes Memorial Tree Farm?

    We just went for a hike at the park, and there were little (what can you call them? boxes? tiny barns? cages?) all over the forest, with cat food and water dishes next to them. And this is a serious forest, mind you. A very nice gentleman, who volunteers there, told us it's a cat...
