I know, I’m late in getting this out. Other than the muzzleloading rife I’ve already posted about, I made two other major purchases this week–posts for them are forthcoming. None of the major purchases, including the muzzleloader, were planned for this week. However, all three of them were things that have been on my list of things to buy for months.
What: Thompson/Center Firestorm Muzzleloading Rifle
Purchased From: Local Retailer
I did not plan on buying a muzzleloader this week, but I stopped in at a local retailer to buy my fishing license, and saw two muzzleloaders in the rack marked at $150 each. When I saw that they were Thompson/Centers, I bought one, because I have never heard of them making a gun that wasn’t quality.
Working overtime and some other obligations made this a week of few projects. The first and biggest was to remove a stump I’ve been mowing around since we moved in. When I started on it, my wife had the car grocery shopping, and I had no gas for my chain saw. I did most of the work armed only with a shovel, an axe, and a bow saw. After the wife got back, I bought some gas and finished with the chain saw.
What: FoodSaver FM5480 2-in-1 Food Preservation System.
Purchased From: Costco
Last fall, I discovered that about the time that the guys at work get their deer back from the processor (none of them do their own butchering), they are very willing to give away whatever’s left of last year’s deer. That was one consideration. Another is that we intend to freeze a number of vegetables from the garden this year. I’ve always
This week was extra productive due to having some extra time off of work.
A while back, I received a mailer from the Arbor Day Foundation offering me 10 Colorado Blue Spruce seedlings and 2 Lilac seedlings for a $10 donation. I am a big fan of lilacs, and so I sent them a check for $10. This week the seedlings arrived, so I spent a day digging and turning 12 3-foot diameter holes and planting my seedlings.

This purchase was made a while back, and is essentially a luxury purchase for us. Mrs. Norseman loves to
I haven’t posted much for quite a while.
God willing, that is about to change, but so is this blog. You see, for the first few years of this blog, I was trapped in a big city. Never being big on “going out,” on days off I would sit on the the porch of the apartment I rented a room in, smoke a pipe, and
To the best of my knowledge, I have never heard anyone refer to me in real life as “traditional” or a “traditionalist.” However, I and my family have often been called “old-fashioned” and occasionally, “Amish.” Here are some of the reasons I and my family have been called “old-fashioned:”
This weekend, for the first time, I met (in person) a reader of this blog who I didn’t know in real life before they ever started reading here.
In my interactions with others who want to bring back virtue and order, I have often encountered the idea that separation of Church and State is antithetical to this goal. I have heard the same theory espoused by those of the opposite persuasion; claiming that Church and State must be kept separate–or driven further asunder–in order to prevent a return to virtue and order. (Or, as they sometime express it, to protect LGBT “rights.”)
Recently, Nick B. Steves posted an image to Twitter that I found both intriguing and confusing: I was intrigued by the relationship between the various groups and sites. In 2012, I discovered a rag-tag group of blogs that were, at the time, generally referred to as “the manosphere.” This group was diverse, including sites such … Read more…
This is not my first blog. I think it is my fifth. Of the four that went before, none remain. This is by far the most “successful” blog I have ever built, and even it is small compared to others in its small niche of the internet. No one really notices when I take several weeks between posts, which is good, because I do it often.
Donal has a post out about not being angry due to realizing truth about women: Exposure to the “Red Pill” can have a variety of emotional consequences for men- some short term, and some long term. At first it is usually a slew of negative emotions, including but not limited to: anger, sadness, disgust and … Read more…
BCB has released our third list, a list of denominational stances on headcoverings in worship. We were only able to identify two denominations that had pro-covering statements on their websites, so if you know of others, please let us know. Also, if you want to get involved with BCB, we need more users in order … Read more…
