12-28: The NRA Archive is updated today with the monthly NRA page features for December: Armed Citizen, Standing Guard, and The President's Column. Each of these features are valuable, information packed columns that you will find extremely helpful and interesting even if you are not a firearms owner yourself. For one, it keeps you apprised of the relative honesty and the intentions of the politicos you vote for. For another, it shows you the value of owning your own firearm for protection, recreation, hobby, business, and because for now anyway... you can. The Archives are available any day of the month from the NRA page in the Extra department, look for the link down at the bottom of the table of contents.
12-24: Team Crunchinator had an OK week last week. We crunched 10 work units for a total of 2,047 points. It's what's going on in the Hobbies department, be there or be diseased.
Team Crunchinator and the good folks at Gary's House of Wacks wish you a Merry Christmas. May the sanctity and joy of this special holiday bless you throughout the next year!
12-21: I am blessed with hot summers and mild winters. Result? I'm still harvesting chili peppers! Check it out in the Chili Pepper Gardner's Diary in the Chili Peppers section of the Hobbies department.
12-20: The Joke of the Weak is in Christmas mode. Just because you keep your radio and TV turned off, are staying out of elevators, malls and grocery stores won't guarantee that you will escape Christmas... you Scrooge.
12-19: "Our hard work must begin today if we are to keep our freedoms tomorrow." Truer words were never spoken concerning our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. For more information hop over to the President's Column in the NRA section of the Extra department.
12-18: Christmas jokes right up to Christmas day are going on at the Joke of the Weak.
12-17: A so-so Folding@home week for Team Crunchinator last week over in the Hobbies department. I don't know what the difference between last week and the week before was, but it was something... it's always something... and it always seems to be happening to me. Regardless, we crunched 10 respectable work units and earned 2,069 points in the process.
12-14: Looks like Christmas has come to the Joke of the Weak. Be there or be humorless.
12-13: Things are still happening in the chili pepper garden, it's cooled down a lot but it is still warm enough out here on the desert to keep plants thriving and producing. Read the Chili Pepper Gardener's Diary in the Chili Peppers section of the Hobbies department for more details.
12-12: "In this election ... NRA members and our friends ... have the opportunity to once again become the most important single voting bloc in American politics." This is an excerpt from an article by the NRA Vice President Wayne LaPierre. Read the complete text on the Standing Guard page in the NRA section of the Extra department.
12-11: Another day another joke for you to enjoy at the Joke of the Weak.
12-10: The Team Crunchinator Folding@home page has been updated in the Hobbies department. It was another good week with 2,179 points earned by crunching a whopping 13 work units! Fear our CPU!
12-5: "Armed Citizen" is an article in the "American Rifleman" very similar to one of my favorite feature articles in "Guns & Ammo" called "Armed Response". These articles consist of short accounts describing the use of firearms by private citizens to protect lives and property. These are the stories that the mainstream media ignore because they are not so much interested in presenting the truth as much as they are interested in furthering their anti-gun agendas. Some very interesting reading here. It's going on in the NRA section of the Extra department.
12-3: It's a new month and time to roll over the website to accommodate it. You can find the news for November over in the News Archives. I'm looking forward to Christmas and New Years, I don't expect much loot this year but I really enjoy the season. We have decorated for Christmas and it feels nice and homey here. Hope you all have a great Christmas with family and friends.
