A Good 10th Anniversary To You

Just saw where it is the 10th anniversary of The Jawa Report.  Jawa and those there are not “cyber vigilantes” as they break no laws; however, they do take it to the enemy online and have been instrumental in that fight and in efforts that have put a number of e-hadis, and traitors, in jail.  They fight the good fight on the electronic front too long ignored by government.  A good blog, a must read, with some good people.  If you aren’t checking it out, you should.

I Know, I Know

I’ve been promising more, but haven’t delivered the free ice cream.  Well, that’s because it seems almost every project has decided to take off at once.  This is a good thing, but it also means that my time and focus have been on them, and not on the free ice cream.  There is more to come, promise.

Feel Good Stories of Self-Defense & Reliance

There are some who claim that you shouldn’t send people to read regular features at other blogs.  They are idiots.  While I figure most of you are already reading This Ain’t Hell, for those that are not I highly recommend the Feel Good Stories that showcase responsible citizens defending themselves and others, helping others (more often than not at risk to themselves), and otherwise showing the better qualities of America.  Go check it out.

The Strange Tale of Montgomery County Assistant State’s Attorney Keith Jacobson and the Neverending Story of Psul the Uncool

My thought is that most of you reading here read This Ain’t Hell on a regular basis.  For those who don’t, TAH is THE go-to milblog these days and they are one of the top go-to sites for cases of Stolen Valor.  I happen to be know both Jonn and TSO, and consider Jonn a friend.  Not sure I can be friends with TSO, given his mancrush on Brady and his alternate lifestyle dwarf in WoW.  That, and finding out he had a Barbie jeep (full size, not the toy), are a bit much.

One problem with outing Stolen Valor is that those exposed don’t much care for it, and their friends and/or relatives might not either.  Sometimes, it attracts some interesting responses, and such is the case of Psul the Uncool.

Today, TSO has an update on the neverending story that is Psul, complete to his being arrested.  Sadly, it also includes the fact that Montgomery County Assistant State’s Attorney Keith Jacobson has for some reason decided not to prosecute despite what appears to be more than sufficient evidence.  The strange tale of Montgomery County Assistant State’s Attorney Keith Jacobson is that he appears to have given more than one reason for the failure to prosecute, which does make one wonder as to what the real what and why may be.

So, I ask you to go read The Strange Tale of Montgomery County Assistant State’s Attorney Keith Jacobson and the Neverending Story that is Psul the Uncool (“The unbearable lightness of being Paul K. Wickre: The Neverending Story,” their title).

Bunkers, Trenches, & Calvados Oh My!

My second feature story for PJMedia Lifestyles is now up for your reading and viewing pleasure. Please check it out.

For anyone coming here via PJMedia, feel free to look around, kick the tires, explore the archives, and such. You can also find my page on Facebook (please like it), and there is more about me at my non-blog site. Sorry for the rough conditions, in the process of having to rebuild this and the other site. I’m also on Twitter, though not as much as I should be.

Testing, Testing

Testing to see if some “functionality” I’ve added really works.  This is just a test, though if it works it will have put some fun in the functionality for me.

Ten Years

In using the Wayback machine earlier today to start recovery of old posts, it hit me that it was roughly ten years ago that I started blogging.

I had seen blogs around, was starting to follow them, and thought I had something to offer.  I can’t remember exactly how that got started, or even how I was proceeding, but John Ringo decided I should be doing more and introduced me to Joe Katzman at Winds of Change.  Joe became my blogfather, and guided me as I moved from posting at WoC to my own blog.  A few years after that, Blackfive honored me by requesting I guest blog at his place, and then let me continue to post after his book came out.

Rescue Underway!

Thanks to the Wayback Machine, I’m in the process of saving at least some of the old posts from the blog.  It is interesting to see the differences between MT, EE, and WP — and I have to admit I really like the new WP platform.

Standby, old posts will be posting soon I hope.  I’m starting with recipes and such, and will go from there.

Military and Social Media

Over at Blackfive, I have some thoughts on an article I think military (and business) leaders need to read.  Please check it out.
