The “Mighty Hunters”…and me

Tree stand

Let me tell you how my son’s first deer hunt went. I want to warn you that our guide for the day, fellow blogger John Floyd, and my son William will try to tell you something different. Let me assure you that everything I am about to tell you is entirely accurate. I swear it’s […]

There has been another horrible shooting. This time in Florida. The “Gun Nuts” are blaming Islamic terrorists. The “Gun Grabbers” are blaming The NRA. Am I the only person blaming a crazy guy with a gun? Because it feels like I am. One thing is certain. If I had to choose a side, I would […]

Worried about tick-borne illnesses? Get ticks tested for free!

Many of you know that I am not a big fan of ticks. They have literally prevented me from enjoying outings in the woods. I rarely venture out of my chicken patrolled yard. I hate ticks. I think we should use DDT for a number of years to reduce ticks, and many other insects that […]

Microsoft phone scam alert.

Hey folks! I got a call today from somebody with an accent that indicated he did not grow up in America with English-speaking parents.

Ever since August of 2015 when wheelchair bound Harvey Lembo shot an intruder in his Rockland, Maine¬†apartment there has been a lot of talk concerning renters who want guns, and landlords who want gun free properties. It turns out that Mr. Lembo’s rental agreement included a rule that weapons were not allowed in his apartment, […]

WHY are we coddling our criminals???

_______

  OK..So allegedly,¬†this dude meets a woman on the Internet. They decide they should meet in person, and end up dating for a month or so. Finally they attend a Seattle Mariners game together. From there, something went insanely wrong. Allegedly sometime after the game, 37 year old John Robert Charlton killed 40 year old […]

Keeping our children safe?

So apparently a part-time life guard employed by the Brunswick, Maine YMCA was recently arrested on child pornography charges. I don’t know the details, and that particular incident isn’t really my concern. What bothers me, is that the YMCA is supposed to be a safe place for our children to hang out on weekends, and […]

Got a freezer full of fish from last week’s ice fishing trip? You may be breaking the law!
