  1. On savagery:

    “The more I see of what you call civilization, the more highly I think of what you call savagery!”
    — Robert E. Howard

    “There is a savage beast in every man, and when you hand that man a sword or spear and send him forth to war, the beast stirs.”
    — George Martin

    “Humanity’s savageness is what makes it civilized.”
    — Adam Burch

    “You and I probably wouldn’t be here if our ancestors hadn’t been savages.”
    — Anonymous

    “Let Anyone be the King. Make that person realize you’re playing Chess.”


  2. Bought some cheese called “Wild Italian” at Garretson grocery store.
    It’s made by Dimock, which is a small town in SD.
    WOW was it incredibly good!
    I can’t speak for it’s consistency because I only had it once. In this age I’ve noticed cheese anymore usually isn’t consistent and I hope that ain’t the case.
    It’s storming like a mofo right now, and I’m wishing that the hole in the ground was complete.
    Guess I’ll be wearing boots 🙂
    Anyway I bought that cheese because they didn’t have any feta.

  3. This storm is a perfect example of why storing shit in zip lock, garbage bags, yada yada, ya know?
    When crap falls apart, and you have to begin salvaging in a less than nice environment, hopefully one can make way with dry things in a workable place.
    Be as prepared as possible!!! 🙂

    1. Got just about 3.5 inches of rain.
      No trees down up here.
      I’m guessing there’ll be a few at the main farm.
      To greasy for me wanting to drive out right now.
      No gravel. Only field road.
