Help Me Win Free Stuff!

Oh, and his blog has an awful lot of good preparation information too.

M.D. Creekmore over at the The Survivalist Blog – a survival blog dedicated to helping others prepare for and survive disaster – with articles on bug out bag contents, survival knife choices and a wealth of other survival information is giving away a Go Berkey Water Filter System (a $139.00 value)! To enter, you just have to post about it on your blog. This is my entry. Visit The Survivalist Blog for the details.

Kanye and Michael Moore to Boycott Arizona over SB1070

If I’d known that was all we had to do to keep those two &%$#wits out of the state I’d have called for it years ago. That goes for the rest of that list as well.

Kalashnakitty Shirts are Back Again!

Eric is once again offering Kalashnakitty shirts – I’ve watched him sell these for a number of years and they are a decent quality product, I have several.

Back for a limited engagement! I do these 2-3 times a year, and have gotten a lot of requests lately to do a new run of shirts.

I will be taking orders until Sunday, June 13 and the order with my shirt maker will go in on Monday June 14. I should have the shirts in my hands and shipping out by the last week of June and they will ship out immediately by Priority Mail.
Here’s the procedure for getting the shirts (this makes it a LOT easier for me to track and ship these things ASAP)

Email me ( with the following:

1 – Number, color, style and sizes you want –
2 – Your name and address
3 – How you would like to pay for them (Check, Money Order, Paypal)

Colors, Styles, and Sizes:

Shirts now come in THREE colors – an ash grey (very nice), a light pink, and black – shirts are high-quality, long lasting, very soft. I’ve never gotten an email from any of my previous customers saying, “The shirt shrunk, faded, looks horrible after 3 months, etc.” – these really are quite nice shirts.

Shirts come in THREE styles for summer – short-sleeve, “baby-doll”, and tank top.
Many sizes to choose from – all shirt styles and colors come in Children’s Small up to Children’s XL, and Adult Small up to Adult 2XL. Sizes above 2XL are limited.
Short Sleeve Ash and Black go up to 5XL, Pink only up to 2XL. Baby-Doll all colors from Adult Small up to 2XL. Tank Tops all colors from Adult Small up to 2XL


Any size (short-sleeve) up to XL is $20.00, 2XL is $22.00, 3XL is $23.00, 4XL and 5XL is $24.00
Baby Doll – to XL is $22.00, 2XL is $24.00
Tank Tops – to XL is $22.00, 2XL is $24.00

There is NO extra charge for black or pink – used to be an extra $2.50 per shirt but not anymore!

Shipping via 2-3 day Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation is $6.00 for 1 shirt, and an extra $2.50 per shirt after that.

Check, MO, or Paypal is good for payments. If using Paypal, add 4% to the total payment, including the shipping.

** When you email me your order, include your full name and mailing address. I will email you back with the total.

Thanks again for this opportunity to provide these for you.

NOTE:  I have no relationship with Eric other than having bought a couple of these (I’m getting another one) and liking them.

Evidently requires the presence of upwards of 15 law enforcement officers, 3 police cars, some abusive language, attempts at intimidation and guesswork as to what the law does or doesn’t allow.

By Way of Apology, Some Education Stuff

Sorry for the incredibly poor posting habits; I can’t even complain about being overly busy though I did have to finish up the semester. Now that I have free time I’ll try very hard to get into the once-a-day posting habit.

In the mean time here are links to a couple of education-oriented blogs written by a very bright fellow, Dr. Cable Green, whom I met at a conference on technology in education that our system holds once a year. He’s really out on the cutting edge of what’s happening with open educational resources and elearning strategies; if you have any interest in these areas I highly recommend following him.
