“A human being should be able to
change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a
building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone,
comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve
equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer,
cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.”
This is one of my favorite quotes of all time. It sums up what this blog should be about. I will discuss everything that I think a 21st century renaissance man should know and be. If you are offended by candid discussions of God and Jesus Christ, right-wing politics, guns, hunting, fishing and self sufficiency, you will most likely be offended by this blog. If not, then please continue reading. I will attempt to blog on a weekly basis, sometimes more often, sometimes less often. It all just depends on what happens during the week.
I decided to write this blog after several discussions I had with a good friend of mine about the new breed of renaissance man. In this day and age, I think it is very important to not only be able keep up with current events, but to also rediscover how our fore-fathers survived in this great land. I'm not a doomsday prepper, I don't believe that our great nation will fall within our lifetimes (I could be wrong, lots of things can happen that I can't predict). I believe that God has a plan for each of us individually, and for our nation as a whole.
I am a programmer by trade, and I love the great outdoors. I love to fish, I love to hunt, I love to garden, and I love to learn more about all these tasks. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I will do my best to answer.If there are topics you wish to learn more about, and if I find them interesting enough, I will research them and blog about them. I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoy writing about all the things I learn.
