Link of the Week – Cell Phone Battery Fires

January 23, 2018

Yeah, I’m like one of those frozen lizards falling out of the trees in Florida. Can’t. Move. Must conserve energy. I’m just useless. But should I ever find myself stranded in the unforgiving boonies without the proper essentials, I might be able to start a fire with my cell phone to keep warm.

Link of the Week – Reading Bourbon Labels

September 12, 2017

This week’s link comes from one of my favorite blogs, The Art of Manliness. And it’s a great link for anyone who likes bourbon. I, myself, went through

a spell of consuming copious amounts of Jim Beam in my youth. Good times…good times…
