FREETHOUGHT FOR Friday April 23, 2021: "If you are ethical only because you believe in God, you are buying your ticket to heaven or trying to tear up your ticket to hell. In either case, you are just being a shrewd profiteer, nothing else." ~ Isaac Asimov (1920-1992) TODAY'S KING-JAMES-BIBLE CONTRADICTION: Jesus says he will build his church on Peter (Matt 16:18-19, but in Matt 16:23, Jesus calls Peter "Satan"?


AN OBSERVATION:
We defend our President ...................... with guns.
We defend our Congress ...................... with guns.
We defend our Governors .................... with guns.
We defend our Legislators ................... with guns.
We defend our Embassies .................... with guns.
We defend our ...(insert other names)... with guns.
We defend our children ........................ with signs that read "GUN-FREE ZONE",
                    and then we call someone with a gun when there is an emergency!

After Kansas adopted "Vermont-style carry", where a government-issued "permit" is not required to exercise a Constitutional right, most CCH instructors in this area (including me) stopped offering CCH classes, but someone still occasionally contacts me wanting a CCH class.   I KNOW NOTHING about either of the following two organizations, and I receive ABSOLUTELY NO remuneration for listing them here, but I have been told that:
  * Living Water Ranch (4122 Living Water Rd, Olsburg, KS; 785-410-5337) and
  * Godfrey's Indoor Shooting and Archery Ranges (920 N Washington St, Junction City, KS; 785-238-0094)
are still offering CCH classes.   Call them for more information.

OTHER GOOD STUFF (at least I think so!)

NOTE:   If you're looking for things to steal/pawn, you won't find much:   we don't even own a TV or stereo; our main
              computer runs DOS and was built in 1995; my .22 rifle and pistol are safely locked away; our "silverware" and
              most of our clothes, dishes, and pots-n-pans are either "early matrimonial" (we've been married 57 years!-)
              or are from Goodwill, the Grand ol' Trunk, and/or other thrift stores; and anything we own that might have
              some value has been engraved for easy identification!   Sorry, but that's just our lifestyle.

A few pictures that can't be characterised other than "miscellaneous" http://mcalhoun.sdf.org/Miscellaneous.html

See my "official" Kansas-State photo (a.k.a. "ugly mug") and my "barbershop" quartet (a.k.a. "four ugly mugs")
on my Kansas State University webpage http://www-personal.ksu.edu/~mcalhoun/index.html

Our lower pasture is in an official "100-year floodplain" of Wildcat Creek.   You can see what it has looked like
six or seven times since we moved here in 1972 at http://mcalhoun.sdf.org/CreekFlood.html
(note that 1972-thru-2016 is nowhere near 100 years!)

I haven't taken the time to annotate these, but Wildcat Creek, which bends in an "ell" around the above lower pasture, has been eroding the "outside" of the curve for years, and the landowner whose land was being transferred to our side of the creek (which, according to Kansas law, changed his land into our land!-) hired someone to rip-rap his bank.   Unfortunately, the rip-rapping company decided to physically drag some of our new land back to the other side of the creek (which, according to Kansas law, is not legal), and I just happened to be walking by (without my camera, unfortunately) while the backhoe was digging.   I made a quick complaint to the rip-rapping company office, and they then atoned for their "sin" by rip-rapping our side of the curve, too.
