Buckboard Bacon

This is a great article. She laid it out clearly and completely.

Wish I knew this years ago. Why not? If you want bacon….

Article on Government with not enough to do. Thank you…

Saturday, August 27th, 2011

Very good article, refreshing. I am often on Newsvine, and will put this up on there.

The sad truth of this nation seems to be that people have (also chosen) to have too little to do. I see thousands of people on Newsvine and other comment sections that believe they have nothing to do, yet every one could be contributing to food for this nation, freeing ourselves from this tyranny of which you speak, and taking care of not contributing to this social disease: government.

Good article, and glad to see I can share it.

Thank You,

Gloria T.

[In response to letters in Issue #96]

If I recall I did see and article back in 94-95.
1 gallon cider
1 liter Everclear
9 cloves
3 cinnamon sticks.
Mix cider and Everclear, place cloves and cinnamon sticks in mixture, and place in a dark cabinet for approximately 3-6 months.
