Priesthood Power!

All of my boys are at the priesthood session right now. This is the type of thing that I absolutely live for! These are the scenes that I tuck away in my heart and pull out in desperate times. I love all of my men so very much! I've gone from living with a single mom and one brother who had the priesthood to being the ONLY one in my home without it. I've come a long way, baby! My life is so blessed!

A good friend of mine recently reminded me that I need to recognize good "moments" as the teenage years are upon us. She is so right. THIS was such a good moment. I love my family!

Just can't get enough!

Here is a glimpse into the first October logging trip:

Hopefully we'll have enough firewood to get us through the winter!

Finshed restoration

Remember that rusty old stove about three pictures below this one? Well here it is now. And the ad I posted with it.
"Vermont Castings Resolute wood/coal stove. Cleaned, sandblasted and professionally repainted wood stove. Beautiful. I took pictures of the stove with the coal kit installed (which you can buy alone from Vermont Castings or Ebay for 500.00 itself) and also with the coal kit out which shows how you can burn wood in it instead if you choose. Glass and gaskets will be installed Friday.
Would look incredible in any room of any house. $765.00 cash.

Someone owes me five bucks.

Wonderful Saturday morning up in the woods hunting some nice hard dead oak with two of the boys today. Since I am almost six feet tall myself, you can see that we got a nice stack of wood.

R.I.P. Ray Charles the cat

Ray was a good cat. He didn't bug me as much as the other cats do. He was so soft and had the sweetest personality. My favorite things about Ray are:

* When I would call his name, he'd meow back like you were having a conversation... "Ray..." "Meow" "Ray... " "Meow". It was fun.

* OCD - this was the craziest cat I ever saw. He would wipe his paws in his water before he could drink it... and if he was interrupted, he would start over again wiping his paws in the water.

* His drop button. Zach found a spot on Ray's back that he would grab and Ray would immediately drop to the ground. Hours of fun, I tell ya!

* His lick button. Zach found another spot on Ray's back that when scratched would cause Ray to lick a lot. Also good for hours of fun.

We'll miss you RAY!!!!!!

Here comes winter....

Here is a nice Vermont Castings Resolute wood/coal stove restoration project I've started. Before any of you get any funny posting ideas, this is the "before" picture. When it is done we will post some finished pictures.

Off to Nauvoo they go...

The huge church event to start off the summer. Hopefully they will have many great experiences in this trip. Have fun Zach.

There has got to be a bong pipe hidden somewhere in this 1974 VW Transporter that Zach traded his Cabriolet for.

I wish I was born in 1920

Longest post in Blog spot history. And one everyone should read. But most wont because they are more concerned about what's on tv, or who is on their friends list.
Read it anyway, I dare you.

Why you need to be prepared spiritually, physically and financially. And why you need food storage. So hoard away. You have my permission.

#1 - Tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and tsunamis - At first it seemed like a fluke; but now it's a pattern. The weather is becoming increasingly extreme. Over 120 tornadoes recently struck the U.S. Midwest. Texas is on fire and suffering through an extreme drought. And where there aren't fires and droughts, there are floods. This is only the beginning... watch for more freak weather over the next 18 months.

#2 - The silence of the bees - Colony Collapse Disorder continues to accelerate across North America. We already know it's being caused in part by chemical pesticides (and possibly worsened by GMOs), but the chemical industry is engaged in a full-on cover-up to deny this truth while the pollinators of our world suffer a devastating population collapse. (

#3 - The failure of nuclear science - The Fukushima catastrophe proves one thing: Scientists are dangerously arrogant in their planning of large-scale projects, and they fail to account for the awesome power of Mother Nature. Nuclear science promised us clean, green energy -- but now it has delivered a silent, invisible poison that's infecting our planet.

#4 - The vicious pursuit of Wikileaks - In an age of such rampant deceit, there is no room for the truth. So those who tell the truth (Wikileaks) are viciously pursued as if they were criminals.

#5 - The rise of the medical police state - The armed SWAT raids on Maryanne Godboldo in Detroit are only the beginning ( The truth is that the medical system uses guns to force its vaccines and chemotherapy onto children and teens across America. The medical system has become so utterly useless, corrupt and dangerous that it must actually invoke guns in peoples' faces just to "convince" people to take its medicine. This is a gunpoint-enforced medical monopoly that exists as a threat to our health and our freedoms.

#6 - The increasing frequency of food shortages and crop failures - Notice the spike in food prices? That's just the beginning: Food prices will continue to skyrocket in the years ahead due to extreme weather, the loss of pollinators and the global contamination of crops by GMOs. Real food is becoming increasingly scarce in our world. You might want to think about starting a home garden...

#7 - The runaway destruction of the world by energy companies - The radioactive fallout from Fukushima isn't the only way in which energy companies are destroying our world: Don't forget about the Deepwater Horizon and the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico -- a spill that isn't over, by the way. They're still spraying Corexit in the Gulf one year later!

#8 - The continued GMO contamination of our planet - This may be the worst chapter in the coming collapse: The widespread genetic pollution of our planet through GMOs. This is a crime against nature and against humanity. It is a "gene spill" that may never be contained as it spreads its deadly DNA across the world's food crops, leading to crop failures and starvation ( The use of GMOs is the closest thing to "Satanic" that you'll find in modern agriculture. The agenda behind this is pure evil.

#9 - The tyranny and criminal crackdowns targeting real food (raw milk) - When you can't even sell honest farm food to your neighbors without being targeted and arrested by the cops, something is terribly wrong with the world. But this is happening today, all across America. Now the feds are even targeting the Amish! (

#10 - The escalation of the counterfeiting of the money supply - In a failed economic system approaching collapse, the moronic leaders can only think of "solutions" that actually accelerate their own downfall. The runaway counterfeiting of money by the Federal Reserve (with its "quantitative easing" and other counterfeit methods) is a classic sign that the end of our current system is fast approaching. The economic insanities are obvious to anyone who can still do math.

#11 - The plummeting intelligence of the masses - One of the most disturbing signs that we're already in the collapse is the great dumbing-down of the masses. The drooling, CNN-watching television zombies who dominate our landscape offer absolutely nothing of value to the world. They are the "mindless consumers" who get vaccinated, watch television and eat processed, pasteurized junk food. They're on psychiatric meds and believe everything the government tells them. Most of these people, of course, won't make it through the collapse. Which is why we lost the TV at our house.

#12 - The complete and utter fabrication of the mainstream news - Much of the mainstream news is now utterly and completely fabricated these days: The reporting on Obama's long-form birth certificate; the news about the war in Libya; the coverage of the economy and the U.S. debt... it's all so utterly false and unbelievable that an intelligent person watching the news can't help but explode with laughter. It is a sign of this collapse that the information sources relied upon by the masses are unable to report the truth anymore and must resort to weaving politically expedient fictions on everything from health care and medicine to the fate of the U.S. dollar itself.

#13 - The ongoing pharmaceutical pollution of our world - Beyond the GMO contamination and the radiation contamination of our world, we are also experiencing the mass pharmaceutical contamination of our planet. It's not just the pharma factories that dump their products into the rivers (; it's also the fact that well over half the population is now taking drugs almost daily, and those drugs pass right through their bodies and end up in the water supply where they contaminate the fish ( Even beyond that, the drugs end up in the human sewage sludge that's packaged and sold as "organic soil!" (

#14 - The radioactive contamination of the global food supply - Here's one that's really insidious: The global food supply is now contaminated with the radioactive fallout from Fukushima. We're told the levels are "low," but we're not told the truth of how radioactive cesium isotopes persist in the food supply for centuries. How is the human race going to survive its exposure to CT scans, radioactive food, chest X-rays, TSA body scanners and even the secret DHS mobile X-ray vans that can penetrate your body with X-rays as you're walking into a football stadium? The total radiation burden on the human race is now reaching a point of mass infertility. That may be the whole idea, actually.

It's accelerating, too

December, 2012 may be a useful date as some sort of mid-point in the crisis, or perhaps as a trigger date for some further acceleration of society's rapid unraveling. But make no mistake: We are already living in the collapse of our modern world. And you have a front-row seat! (Exciting, huh?)

Think about what's happening around you these days. These are the signs of the last, desperate clutches of a civilization built on utterly unsustainable practices that don't value life on our world. These are the End Times of the corporate oligarchy; the monopolistic for-profit corporation machine that destroyed everything in our world in exchange for a slightly higher quarterly earnings report.

In the quest for more money, humanity has sacrificed its food supply, its pollinators, it's oceans, forests and soils. Greed-driven humans have used other humans as medical experiments and cannon fodder. We have created wars to sell more bombs, and we've invented disease to sell psychiatric chemicals.

These are the practices of a failed civilization... and one whose days are numbered. Watching it all crumble is far more interesting than watching it continue its destructive ways, of course, because those of us paying attention realize a future civilization must rise up in the place of this one after the collapse.

Say goodbye to the false power of institutions

It would be nice if our future leaders remembered the importance of liberty and personal responsibility, of course. The answer to all the world's problems, it turns out, is freedom -- freedom in medicine, freedom in economics and freedom from government tyranny.

Because, let's face it: The root cause of most these problems that are bringing down our world right now is bad government. It is bad government (Big Government) that approved the GMOs. Bad government enforced the medical monopoly and allowed the pesticides to kill the honeybees. Bad government drove us into inescapable debt and costly foreign wars. Bad government outlawed health freedom and protected the monopolistic practices of the food companies, drug companies and chemical companies.

The downfall of modern human civilization is, as you probably guessed, also the downfall of the very idea that Big Government creates a better society. Because if there's one idea that needs to stay dead after the collapse, it's the idea that We the People somehow need another group of people (government workers) to live off our hard work while hounding us with their false authority, directing every little detail of our lives.

What we need in our world isn't more government, but more freedom. If we had freedom, integrity and personal responsibility, we wouldn't even be facing the global collapse that has already begun. But alas, the human race is an infant species and it must learn some lessons the hard way, it seems.

This lesson should be long remembered: If you let the corporations, the banks and the governments run your economies, your farms and your lives, they will enslave you and steal your future while you sleep; they will inject silent poisons into the very world around you until you awaken one day to find that all you created has been destroyed. They will promise you paradise but deliver only death. Beware of any entity that is not a living person -- no government, no institution, no corporation has a soul, nor a heart, nor a conscience. They are forces of organized destruction that decimate those things we hold dear while delivering to us things that will only enslave us or harm us.

Beware the corporation; the government; the non-profit institution working as a front group for private industry. Never allow yourself to be ruled over by any institution which exists only as a fictional construct organized from the projection of human greed.

And be ready for the acceleration of the collapse. Because if you are reading this, you are the future of the human race. You have a duty to stay alive, keep your genes intact, and be around to help create the Next Society after this one crumbles into history.

What a Dad.

So I am a little behind on doing some of the traditional things that kids like to do on holidays. Here I am showing the boys how to paint an egg on Easter. That only took sixteen years. Later we will be getting chocolate bunnies and little fun things in a basket. Of course what this does very nicely is get everyones minds off the real meaning of Easter which is the resurrection of Jesus Christ. But it was fun anyway.

What summer?

Summer better catch up fast. So far, I'm not very impressed. In protest, I will now post pictures of summers past. This may irritate my boys. Alas, I care not. No more rain, no more flippin' "praying for rain".....I want summer here. I'm sick of having to wear shoes.
