Haha, OK, metaphorical bookends makes both axes being discussed eminently more understandable, at least for me! (Could I be so impudent to ponder if the good professor chose "P"eru as his SA bookend for its alliterative effect?)

Thanks again for the ping to this thread (where we are actually discussing the content of the other thread!), since it has engaged me in the type of thought provoking discussion that I was so fond of at FR in the past. Isee that you have further discussion downthread that I will get to tomorrow. We're settling in for a late dinner soon and some relaxation tonight!

Another “playing for all the marbles” bump. Wake up, folks - it’s now or seriously never.

Absolutely! I've been fortunate to be able to “make hay while the sun shines” so to speak, but no one should kid themselves in the least. The storm clouds are becoming larger and more numerous each day. Time is running short, but what has to happen, has to happen.

I hope the book is going well, and all else is well considering the circumstances. Thanks for the ping!

All’s going as well as it can in these times. I’ve re-located my study in the house to a more quiet and open space. I can look out over the horse turnout, the barn, the front yard, and see who might be coming up the driveway.

Glad to hear that you’re making progress on your preparations. Somehow, I don’t think we’re going to be able to sit this one out.

Better preparations and security Bump! (I’ve been thinking about installing some cameras on the property but haven’t done any research on it yet, do you have any links to pointers?) TIA.

Suggest you take a look at the Ubiquiti Networks AirVision / AirCam combination. I’ve been working with these since they were released.

The AirVision controller software could use one more rev before it’s ready for prime time, IMHO, but you can’t beat the price: $106 per camera, including the controller software. www.ubnt.com

Night vision can easily be obtained. Detail later - I’m off to vote in the Idaho primaries. We have a real Constitutional sheriff in our area, thank heavens. The one lone Democrat won’t even admit he’s a Democrat. Heh.

Thanks much, I’ll check them out. Hoping that your Sheriff holds his office, a good Sheriff is indispensable in fighting tyranny!

The good news is - we have a strong Constitutional Sheriff.
The bad news is - those storm clouds aren’t on the horizon any more.

Good to hear that your choice for Sheriff won the election. I hope the “bad news” about the clouds is in a general sense, and not anything very specific to you and/or your environment. (Seriously, what we are facing on the international and national front are more than enough storm clouds for anyone! In fact, “storm clouds” is a metaphor that just seems too damn weak anymore; perhaps impending calamity is about right at this point.)

Your comment has been linked to a post at PJ Media today.
Your comment that “Survival of our heritage of freedom is facing long odds” is even more accurate post-election.

Real hope is that we know how the story ends.

The Lamb wins.

Oh Lordy, I see you’re from Idaho!

My family pioneered there in the late 19th century and founded Caxton Printers in Caldwell. Caxton was Ayn Rand’s first publisher.

They publish American History, western Americana, Natural History of the American West and Local History among other subjects. Good luck with your book!

Run across any Marchants or Sleaters? Doing research.
