I happened on this quote from naturalist author Henry Beston. It caused me to stop and think. Hope it will do the same for you. WE NEED another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. Remote from universal nature and living by complicated artifice, man in civilization surveys the creature through the glass […]

Scamdemic American style Following the science really worked! Remember when we were told: To flatten the curve A shortage of ventilators was killing thousands Stay six-feet apart Wear a mask Wash your hands Non-essential businesses must close Get vaccinated and stay safe Vaccines stop the virus spread The fully vaccinated need boosters every few […]
Fixed or ruined? A story of two boys.
I came across an animated video which puts one of today’s cultural wars in brilliant focus. It’s short, well done, and thought provoking. I hope that Sam’s video will bring attention to one of today’s genuine crimes against young people. The culture wars which have ravaged Western traditions, leave me wondering where the truly vulnerable […]
Gasp, the horror of it all!
After showing this image in her Hamline University classroom, the art teacher was fired! Why, you might reasonably ask, should someone lost their job over this 14th Century sketch? That would be a brilliant question, but, unfortunately, there is no equally brilliant answer. You see, a Muslim snowflake shreeked that he had been “forced” to […]
First, do no harm

Robinson Jeffers broadside re-discovered
For years Marlan Beilke produced broadsides featuring the writings of Robinson Jeffers. Years back I announced that I had obtained several rare Jeffers’ broadsides that were letterpress printed in California by Mr. Beilke. I posted information about them on my website and several promptly sold out. Recently, Mr. Beilke came upon another of his famous […]
Linotype broadsides honor this famous machine
Marlan Beilke (known in letterpress printing lore as Linomarl) paid tribute to his beloved Linotype machine with a pair of broadsides. Workiing in his Amador City, California letterpress shop, Mr. Beilke became famous for his many printed books and broadsides. I have a few copies of two of his Linotyupe broadsides. When they are gone, […]
Don’t let your kids become jerks
Kids today have to deal with a lot of junk in life. Things are way different from when I was a kid and even how it was when my kids were young. So much has changed, and much of it is not for the better. When I see the craziness in the streets, the gangs […]
ALL CDC facts are totally TRUE except for all those parts that are totally made up!
