A Video from Le Loup - and a Little Contest

Today in the News:  101 followers.  Count 'em.  1-0-1.  Thanks to all of you who read and to all of you that write.  This blog has been a success beyond my goal.  I hope it continues well into the future.

Even MORE news:  We have a contest going for a fire lighting lens with a leather case to celebrate our 100 follower status.  Click follow, email me and you're in.  As of now, we have two entries.  Your chances of winning are high.

Even More MORE News:  I'm looking for your pictures of wildlife and your travels.  I'd like to do a wildlife week here on the blog.  As of now, no one has sent me anything. :(  Sad, but true.  I would also like to do "Weaponry Week" here on the blog.  While I thought about doing a week primarily on guns, I'd be interested in crossbows, atlatls, etc.  You don't have to do a write up if you don't want to, just send pictures, if that's all that you want to do.  I'd really appreciate your support!

Le Loup over at The Woodsrunner's Diary Blog gave me permission to post this video and I found it very handy.  I haven't yet posted it, but I've had some miserable failings in fire lighting with a magnifying lens.  Le Loup covers that in this video.  LeLoup is a man about the blogging town and I really respect him as a writer and historian.  Please enjoy this video and feel free to check out the rest of his videos as well.

Thanks, Le Loup!

John Gil also added this to the comment section of yesterday's post.  I MUST make one!

Pax Domini Sit Semper Vobiscum,

Mike, Oscar, Hotel.....out.


  1. Very nice of you to say so. Thank you.
    Regards, Le Loup.

  2. Yep, "The Woodsrunner's Diary" is a keeper, Mike, just like "The Sharpened Axe."
