"Contagion? That's the answer!" - Dr. Charles Arntzen

Edible vaccine supporter and head of the Biodesign Institute for Infectious Diseases and Vaccinology, Dr. Charles Arntzen has recently responded to questions about the issue of overpopulation with the following sardonic remarks, “Has anybody seen Contagion? That’s the answer! Go out and use genetic engineering to create a better virus [to wipe out the population]".

Foraging - Feeding Your Family When You Have NOTHING

One or two of these books in your hands might be worth a bag or two of potatoes.
And maybe it will be worth much, much more.......

Quote du Jour

Surely what a man does when he is taken off his guard is the best evidence for what sort of man he is.

Full Length Shirley Temple Movies

I love Shirley Temple!!!  Such a cutie pie.  I used to have many in VHS but was never able to get an upgrade to dvd.

But now I happily find that YouTube has MANY full length Shirley Temple movies.

Some of my favorites include Curly Top, Stowaway, and The Little Princess.

We NEED Men.....



Once upon a time, men wore pants, and wore them well. Women rarely had to open doors and little old ladies never crossed the street alone. Men took charge because that's what they did. But somewhere along the way, the world decided it no longer needed men. Disco by disco, latte by foamy non-fat latte, men were stripped of their khakis and left stranded on the road between boyhood and androgyny. But today, there are questions our gender-less society has no answer for. The world sits idly by as cities crumble, children misbehave and those little ladies remain on one side of the street. For the first time since bad guys, we need heros. We need grown-ups. We need men to put down the plastic fork, step away from the salad bar and unite the world from the tracks of complacency. It's time to get your hands dirty. It's time to answer the call of manhood. It's time to wear the pants.

Quote du Jour - Jim Gaffigan

"I watch the faces of single people in their twenties after I bring up that I ‘have children.’
I imagine them taking a small step backward as if to avoid contagion,
with a look of ‘Sorry to hear that’ on their face.
Like I naively volunteered to contract leprosy, forever quarantining myself
from the world of having fun by having children.
Well, why not?
I guess the reasons against having more children always seem uninspiring and superficial.
What exactly am I missing out on?
Money?
A few more hours of sleep?
A more peaceful meal?
More hair?
These are nothing compared to what I get from these five monsters who rule my life.
I believe each of my five children has made me a better man.
So I figure I only need another thirty-four kids to be a pretty decent guy.
Each one of them has been a pump of light into my shriveled black heart.
I would trade money, sleep, or hair for a smile from one of my children in a heartbeat.
Well, it depends on how much hair.”

What Are You Carrying?


This is Shrek the sheep. He became famous several years ago when he was found after hiding out in caves for six years. Of course, during this time his fleece grew without anyone there to shorn (shave) it. When he was finally found and shaved, his fleece weighed an amazing sixty pounds. Most sheep have a fleece weighing just under ten pounds, with the exception usually reaching fifteen pounds, maximum. For six years, Shrek carried six times the regular weight of his fleece. Simply because he was away from his shepherd.
This reminds me of John 10 when Jesus compares Himself to a shepherd, and His followers are His sheep. Maybe it’s a stretch, but I think Shrek is much like a person who knows Jesus Christ but has wandered. If we avoid Christ’s constant refining of our character, we’re going to accumulate extra weight in this world—a weight we don’t have to bear.
When Shrek was found, a professional sheep shearer took care of Shrek’s fleece in twenty-eight minutes. Shrek’s sixty pound fleece was finally removed. All it took was coming home to his shepherd.
I believe Christ can lift the burdens we carry, if only we stop hiding. He can shave off our ‘fleece’—that is, our self-imposed burdens brought about by wandering from our Good Shepherd.
“Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

SURPRISE!


BOYS!!!!  I don't get them.

My son runs up to me and says, "I have a surprise for you!"  He is grinning ear to ear.  I turn towards him, he thrusts a half dead fly right up to my face and then throws it at me.  I, of course, scream like a little girl.

After sending him to bed and calming my silly little heart I realize that I overreacted, but....

WHAT ON EARTH!?!?!

August 10th, The Wick Omnibus BOOK BOMB!



Buy this GREAT read on Amazon August 10th!  Since Michael Bunker is self published, it helps tremendously when we agree to purchase on one day, boosting the sales record on that day and skyrocketing the book in the online search engines with Amazon, giving him greater exposure to those who are unwittingly searching for EXACTLY this book.

I absolutely promise you that you will enjoy it and you will NOT know what is going to happen next.

Surprising twists and turns that will leave you chewing on it for weeks to come.

As many of my readers know I have read much of Michael Bunkers work; his books, his blog, his sermons, his radio programhis facebook, his twitter, (lol I am NOT a stalker.... seems I have had to say that before). But I STILL had no idea what was going to happen next.

This 4 in 1 book set shares with you the complete WICK series.  It begins with a man who has chosen to leave his city life and crowds of people and on the edge of collapse system behind.  His efforts to find freedom for his life and soul from invisible chains and demons.  What he finds will challenge you on many levels.  As we journey through this systemic collapse situation, we meet characters that are so diverse and multi faceted.  We get to see it from so many perspectives and it trudges forward regardless of our efforts to shore it up.  We look around our world and wonder... is this a glimpse into our future?

It reminded me very strongly of a KEY point made in another of Bunker's books, Surviving Off Off Grid.  Not to spoil the plot too much here, but there are people in this story who die.  In a collapse scenario, we would all have to face death more... personally.  Of course our goal is to SURVIVE.  But what does it mean to survive?  Does it mean to continue living in chains?  Does it mean to continue a meager subsistence where each breath is filled with fear, regret, and pain?

Or does it mean to LIVE FULLY without fear and with the strong encouraging support of faith, hope, and love?

In the event that troubled times come upon us, do you really just want to 'live through it' or be able to stand tall and strong until that choice is taken from you?

We find that 'survival' at all costs is not what we desire after all.... which brings a certain amount of liberty just in the realization.


Amazon Description.....
This is the complete WICK Omnibus Edition, and includes the completely re-edited and expanded text of Michael Bunker and Chris Awalt's four, bestselling WICK series books.

"...beautiful and haunting..."
"...Tolstoyan, and beautiful..."
"...positively anarchic..."

In WICK 1... a man walked out of New York City after Hurricane Sandy and fell off the edge of the earth...
In WICK 2: Charm School... a mysterious town explodes in violence and America is dealt a deadly blow...
In WICK 3: Exodus... the world is without power. You are on foot and have no home. Any stranger you meet may kill you... and normal is never coming back...
In WICK 4: One Word of Truth... Weeks after the world has been crippled by massive EMP attacks, nuclear weapons are used on major cities, and survivors grapple with a changed world that will never be the same again.

In this much anticipated WICK Omnibus Edition, Michael Bunker's completed WICK series is finally bound into one earth-shattering novel.


What others have said....
"Michael Bunker goes way beyond writing a popular thriller: he clearly has a literary agenda, making the W1CK series so rich and so deep you could analyse each and every page and write a whole book about it. I guess you'd have to call it W1CK1P3D1A." ~ Max Zaoui, Everyone's a Critic Reviews 

"Michael Bunker is the sort of writer you read compulsively not because his books are thrilling (they are) or because his prose is elegant (it is) but because, like a tribal storyteller, he weaves intoxicating tales that elevate your mind and transport your soul to another place altogether." ~ Jason Gurley, Bestselling Author of Greatfall

Endless Halleluyah! by Matt Redman


His Beloved Bride.....

"Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord GOD, and thou becamest mine. Then washed I thee with water; yea, I throughly washed away thy blood from thee, and I anointed thee with oil. I clothed thee also with broidered work, and shod thee with badgers' skin, and I girded thee about with fine linen, and I covered thee with silk. I decked thee also with ornaments, and I put bracelets upon thy hands, and a chain on thy neck. And I put a jewel on thy forehead, and earrings in thine ears, and a beautiful crown upon thine head. Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment was of fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; thou didst eat fine flour, and honey, and oil: and thou wast exceeding beautiful, and thou didst prosper into a kingdom."

Ezekiel 16:8-13
