Podcast 407- Joy, Love and Piece
The Christmas episode. Can’t beleive I put a show out for Christmas. But then how else could I talk to you. Thank you listening. Hope you are well. Revolvers vs Pistols, shoutouts, new products, John Farnam’s Quips, Dr. Seuss, and a casting call.
On this episode of the podcast I talk about the culture we are in and call it “low tide.” Tides are the rise and fall of sea levels caused by the combined effects of the gravitational forces exerted by the Moon and the Sun and the rotation of the Earth. Tides produce oscillating currents known as tidal streams.
Our world, not just the United States but the whole world is going through a low tide in some spots. Here in particular we are seeing a resurgency of a situation or state of affairs that is confused or full of difficulties. Young people are protesting as they have since the sixties. Today, I think most of them are juxtapose between a feeling of hopelessness and being used, most are uninformed and angry, and fed up with more than what their signs say.
The anti-rights side is trying to leverage something. Politicians are still doing their thing – Virginia comes to mind. But what the VCDL has put in place will hold for now. They like all of us need to hold the line. Don’t relent, don’t rest, the price of freedom is still vigilance.
SEEKING REMOTE BUILDERS FOR OFF THE GRID BUILD T.V. SHOW
A major television production company is now casting remote builders from all over the U.S. for a new “off the grid” build show.
We’ll follow each step of the process of building a remote mountain cabin from the challenges of getting materials to the remote site (by horse, ATV or helicopter, etc.), dealing with unpredictable weather and wildlife, and taking on the geographical obstacles of the build site itself. We’ll see the highs and lows of each build as our builder/contractors work against the clock during the abbreviated build season the region demands.
Behind the remote mountain cabins are the intrepid builders who represent the toughness and tenacity that is the hallmark to living off the grid. The ability to adapt, improvise, and persevere in the face of remarkable challenges will make all viewers appreciate what it takes to own a hunting or fishing getaway in the middle of nowhere.
If you have an extreme, remote home/cabin/lodge build, we want to hear from you! Please contact Whitney Hayes at 720-259-4281 as soon as possible as casting for builders is going on now. Please send the following information to:

Something from Dr. Seuss
On their walls he left nothing but hooks and some wire.
And the one speck of food That he left in the house,
Was a crumb that was even too small for a mouse.
Then He did the same thing To the other Whos’ houses
Leaving crumbs Much too small For the other Whos’ mouses!
It was quarter past dawn… All the Whos, still a-bed,
All the Whos, still asnooze When he packed up his sled,
Packed it up with their presents! The ribbons! The wrappings!
The tags! And the tinsel! The trimmings! The trappings!
Three thousand feet up! Up the side of Mt. Crumpit,
He rode with his load to the tiptop to dump it!
“PoohPooh to the Whos!” he was grinchishly humming.
“They’re finding out now that no Christmas is coming!”
“They’re just waking up! I know just what they’ll do!”
“Their mouths will hang open a minute or two,
Then the Whos down in Whoville will all cry BooHoo!”
“That’s a noise,” grinned the Grinch, “That I simply MUST hear!”
So he paused. And the Grinch put his hand to his ear.
And he did hear a sound rising over the snow.
It started in low. Then it started to grow.
But the sound wasn’t sad! Why, this sound sounded merry!
It couldn’t be so! But it WAS merry! VERY!
He stared down at Whoville! The Grinch popped his eyes!
Then he shook! What he saw was a shocking surprise!
Every Who down in Whoville, the tall and the small,
Was singing! Without any presents at all!
He HADN’T stopped Christmas from coming! IT CAME!
Somehow or other, it came just the same!
And the Grinch, with his grinch-feet ice-cold in the snow,
Stood puzzling and puzzling: “How could it be so?”
“It came with out ribbons! It came without tags!”
“It came without packages, boxes or bags!”
And he puzzled three hours, till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before!
“Maybe Christmas,” he thought, “doesn’t come from a store.”
“Maybe Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!”
And what happened then? Well…in Whoville they say,
That the Grinch’s small heart Grew three sizes that day!
And the minute his heart didn’t feel quite so tight,
He whizzed with his load through the bright morning light,
And he brought back the toys! And the food for the feast!
And he, HE HIMSELF! The Grinch carved the roast beast!

Introducing the Rudy Project, Italian crafters of performance eyewear since 1985.
I am rocking a set of ImpactX™2. This new generation of unbreakable photochromic lenses has set the final frontier in sports optics. Compared to the previous generation of ImpactX™, the new ImpactX™2 lenses guarantee:
· 25% Faster activation
· Activation in all natural light, including behind surfaces which screen UV Rays such as windows or car windshields
· More Temperature Stability, by up to 20%
· Increased Photochromic Range with up to 65% higher performance

Furthermore, ImpactX™2 lenses are the first in the world to automatically lighten and darken from a semitransparent tone to a specific color (red, black, brown) according to light conditions and your specific shooting requirements. They can also be crafted with your prescription by digitally surfacing the back side of the lens. Even reader and no-line bifocals can be made into ImpactX™2 lenses!
I like them, A LOT!
