Today we remember

It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
General George S Patton, June 7, 1945

I've been blessed in my life to know many individuals who willingly and proudly put on the uniform of our great nation.  I've also been blessed to never have lost a friend to enemy fire.  However, on this day, we remember all of those who paid the price for freedom, in blood, the only currency that can be traded for liberty.

Life is hard

Our cats are so put upon.  Can't you tell?

I don't know how they survive.

That most burning of questions

As a matter of fact, I am! 

That's a whole ammo can full of 7.62x39, plus I have another 1000 round sealed case.  I need a couple more zombie cans, though, to stuff with the preferred pistol calibers of the house.

Are you ready?

Search term fun!

One of the hits I got in the past week was "How to carry a gun in a suit."

Simple.  Same way you carry in any other clothing.  Actually, a suit can often be easier to carry in, since it has a built-in cover garment.  Suit coats work wonders for concealing shoulder holsters, as well as OWB and IWB rigs.

I don't wear a suit very often, but I've had my very best luck wearing a tuckable IWB rig, if I was concerned about taking off my jacket.  Which, interestingly, is the same result I get in standard street clothes.

And that's how you carry in a suit.


I have found my new God

And Keurig is it's name.

Seriously, this thing is the most awesome beast ever.  Fresh coffee, faster than a drip machine, no wasted Joe.  K cups run us something like $.60 each locally (I know they're far cheaper online, I just haven't gotten that far yet), which beats the guts out of paying $3 or more at the coffee shop.

And in the deepest parts of awesome, it's more than just coffee.  We also have apple cider (phenomenally awesome) and green tea (less awesome, but I'm picky about my tea).  In fact, most of what I've been drinking has been apple cider.  They also make a basket that fits where the k-cup would normally go, to let you use standard coffee grounds or tea leaves, which is something we'll have to invest in.  (See the part where I'm picky about my tea.)  The only thing I miss from my old drip machine was the ability to set it to brew in the morning, so I had coffee when I made it to the kitchen.  However, this thing is so fast, that's a complete non-issue.

Well worth the price, all around.
