Gear Review: Wansview Outdoor WiFi Wireless Camera

To be perfectly honest, I originally had no plans to review this product, but I’m so pleased with the results that I thought I would share them. The camera we’ve had facing the front door/driveway for the last 6 years finally died so we set out to replace it, inexpensively. We settled on this Wansview Outdoor WiFi Wireless Camera based on price (around $40) and customer reviews.

Gear Review: Keeper Magnetic Gun Mount

Recently I posted an article entitled ‘Can You Access Your Gun When You Need It?’ which asked the reader to run themselves through a series of scenarios to determine their ability to react to certain threats. The whole point to the article was to access when and where are you most vulnerable and what can you do to enhance your ability to react. As we ran through these ‘what ifs’ I couldn’t help but think of the Alfred Hitchcock movie Psycho where a young lady is slashed to death in the shower by motel manager Norman Bates. There is a reason this scene has scared people since 1960, naked in the shower is probably the most vulnerable part of your day. My wife kept joking about a ‘gun rack in the bathroom,’ and not that we would actually do that, but we wanted to do something. Our solution was the Keeper Magnetic Gun Mount. For just under $25 and 30 seconds to install this little guy was just what we needed.

Gun Control Fail

In the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting, the cries for more gun control are once again spewing from the mouths of activists and liberal politicians looking to cash in on the tragedy. This is not really surprising and certainly nothing new. Hillary Clinton quickly jumped in stating we need to put politics aside ‘and take on the NRA,’ apparently taking Rahm Emmanuel’s advice to ‘never let a crisis go to waste.’ The left for some reason insists on the US adopting policies that have failed in other countries like the UK’s universal healthcare, Spain’s green energy, and yes, gun control. Australia’s massive gun grab has failed, and Mexico’s very restrictive gun laws certainly haven’t led the Cartels to turn in their guns, but rather left the citizens defenseless against them. If history has taught us anything, it’s that it’s much more difficult to oppress an armed populace. Gun control is not about making society safer, it’s about control. Maybe you think the Government doesn’t have enough control over you, I happen to think it is way too bloated, controlling and overbearing.  I heard it said recently that an armed people will not load themselves in boxcars, I have to believe that to be true.

Prepper Garden Update 10-1-17

As the leaves are turning and beginning to fall, we’re very pleased with not only the successes (and a few failures) of the season, but that we are still getting some production. If you’ve been following, then you already know that we grew everything from seed and staggered our plantings in an attempt to extend our harvest.

Carrots and radishes have been a mixed bag, with some carrots still growing, while the last of the radishes went to seed long ago. The first planting of peas went well, but the second didn’t produce at all (possibly just too late in the season. The corn is long gone as we talked about in our last update, but will definitely be a great opportunity for us next year. Continue reading “Prepper Garden Update 10-1-17”
