Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #177

Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #177. Thanks for joining us. We are always happy to have you join us. I would like to welcome our new readers and members. HFS continues growing as the world and nation spins out of control. Make yourself at home and give me a shout if you have questions or input.

As the weather changes and autumn seems right around the corner, have you started making plans for what to do for the autumn? Cleaning off your garden and begin preparing it for winter and spring is one thing to do. Cross checking your ready bag to rotate summer gear over to autumn gear depending on your location. Preparing your home with last minute winter needs such as bringing in firewood, cleaning your chimney, refueling your fuel tanks, and winterizing your auto's. Maybe stocking more food and needs as things get more stressful and more expensive. Do you have a winter checklist for your home of things you need to do? Now would be a good time to start writing things down.

We are looking forward to spending time this weekend with several local and out of town HFS members. It is always a treat when our HFS family comes together regardless of the location. Life is busy and hectic daily, but we must find time to stop and appreciate people who are important in our life. At the end of life when little else matters, our spiritual health, family and good friends will matter the most. We are always blessed to have this time together.

Moms, grandmothers, and ladies. One of our Patriotic Christian mothers reached out to me to share the below link to a really neat site titled Moms for America. I took a look at the site and its pretty neat with lots of information. If you are asking "what can you do to help reclaim the great nation, we love" then you will want to check this out. I want to think our Patriot sister from Central TN for sharing this information with us. Our thoughts and prayers are still with you, and we are always happy to hear from you.

As many gardens wind down from the summer crops and folks start planting autumn crops, We are still pulling cucumbers, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, and peppers.

We planted watermelon seeds this year we obtained from our HFS neighbor who shared a story about the seeds being 150-year-old seeds. The first month of growth was questionable if the plant would survive. Once the summer rains started the melon plants exploded with growth. Currently we have a few melons comparable to the picture to the left.

This is a picture of our first watermelon (Charleston Grey) picked this year. Weighing in at 33.8 lbs. We are blessed with so many treasures from our garden this year. Amen.

We must make this brief public announcement to protect the innocent.

Ding, Ding, Ding....Attention HFS readers..... Opinions shared in this newsletter are just that, opinions, and nothing more. Read at your own risk. The owner and author of this site is not responsible for hurt feelings or thin-skinned readers. I do my best to show restraint and respect to the best extent possible. I take as many precautions as possible and try to remain as nonpolitical as possible, however, there are times when I just can't help but point certain things out. Occasionally I use words only Patriots recognize and understand. It's not personal against any non-Patriot. It's just the truth. Sometimes we must pull up our spenders and suck it up. Just saying. Stay the course, read what you want, and avoid the rest. Avoid fear porn as much as possible and the day will be okay. When all else fails… Keep the faith and always have Hope.

Let’s move along and get to some thoughts...

Thoughts for the week -

Security - It is important to try and have fun in everything we do. I like to joke that no one wants to listen to a security professional and believes everyone is a graduate of Donut University with a BS Degree in Bull Shooting. Then, they wake up and find a cow chasing the neighborhood bully through their front yard and they call 911.

My point here is security is a package of disciplines requiring numerous schools and training to perfect and understand how to apply the specific skill in the overall security took kit. Most won't realize it because to most, security is security. Think of it as a security filing cabinet and all the drawers are different pieces needed to make the security puzzle complete. I will caution that it is a puzzle in ways because you must decide which pieces will be used for the specific task at hand.
