Stately Features

With our Leech City work, we’ve been focused on Georgia laws and issues. However, we’ve heard from reliable sources that there are other states out there, and with different combinations of issues. In addition to the local civil affairs aspect, we’ve decided to analyze states across a wide range of issues that influence whether any […]

No Fructose Corn Syrup

At the trade show last week, no outside food or beverages were allowed. Instead, vendors inside were giving food and beverages away to promote their products to the attendees. Because our family had stopped drinking sugared beverages a long time ago, I asked the show operators if we could bring in water. The operators said […]

Homeschool CLEP: Info Systems

The Thursday before the trade show, I reported that our homeschooled daughter passed the Chemistry CLEP, good for up to 8 hours of college credit, including lab segments, with a score of 57/80. The next day, she passed the Information Systems CLEP with a score of 72/80. She now has somewhere above thirty credit hours […]

Heirloom Blueberry Cuttings, Part I, Background

Old School Tech has released an article introducing a new series on heirloom blueberry cuttings. This project is simple, uses simple materials, makes a great homeschool earth science project, and can create a large number of new plants from a single shoot. As the article mentioned, we had the material for hundreds of new cuttings […]

As with many of the articles in this small business article series so far, this article introduces the topic at an introductory level. Future articles will build on these introductory topics.

Local Papers As Information Sources

We’ve discussed this in other articles; the tendency is to want to ignore the local rags because of how obviously lop-sided their reporting can be. As it is above with mainstream media […]

Trump Week In Review, 10 Mar 2017

Seven weeks, and plenty is happening on the geo-political front. Everyone has heard of the Wikileaks dump and the wiretapping of Trump Tower by the Obama administration during the campaign. A civil war has been reported between Trump’s nationalists and the cuckservative moderates sprinkled in the mix, and the revised travel ban looks like it […]

Leech City Update, 9 Mar 2017

We’ve been busy over at Leech City with local content articles that, individually, weren’t worth posting for the national reader. However, enough material has accumulated since the Godbee interrogation which can help with the planning and conduct of your own local civil affairs programs that a guided update is in order. In the past months, […]

Trump Week In Review, 3 Mar 2017

Six weeks in, and the major highlight is Tuesday’s “State of the Trump” address. It was good to see Obamacare addressed as an important issue; back on week one we discussed how that is a major killer of small businesses. We would like to see a broad repeal. However, allowing free market choice (actual choice, […]
