I Won and A Great Video

Reader's Digest Back to Basics: How to Learn and Enjoy Traditional American SkillsThanks so much to Pete over at Patriots Against The NWO for having a great giveaway, I won this book Reader's Digest Back to Basics: How to Learn and Enjoy Traditional American Skills, it's a great book, I have a copy that I borrowed from a friend, but I couldn't talk her out of the book, not for money or trade, so when I saw that Pete was offering this book as a prize, I jumped at the chance and won, thanks! Oh, BTW Pete has a great invention called a Slinky Jr Shortwave Antenna, check it out on his site. :)

Thanks to everyone who have made their Amazon.com purchases through my links, I have had a lot more orders through my site this month and I am well on my way to getting the keyboard I want, but I still have a ways to go, so keep up the good work everyone, you are helping me more than you will ever realize, this will allow me to practice piano at home so I can get good enough to play piano in church. :-) My goal is to be able to buy this keyboard with the money I earn on line, it's been a struggle to wait, but you know what they say, good things come to those who wait.

Next is a great big DANG, if the rest of us were half as good with a pea-shooter, we wouldn't need a gun to bring dinner home, I'm not knocking guns, but if you don't have one handy, this would certainly work instead. Watch this video, I am amazed at his skill, I love his down to earth manner too, he reminds me of some of the people I know in my neighborhood.

  1. Congrats on the win. Rufus is awesome. I wonder if you could take an antelope with a slingshot?

  2. I used to have that book, and absolutely loved it.

  3. That is the most entertaining You Tube video I've watched in a long time. Rufus is the man! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Desert Rose, I'd bet that Rufus could take an antelope with his slingshot! Did you see that part where he nicked the stick but took out a chunk of the asphalt just behind it? Wow!

    Gypsy, used to have? Bummer, I'd say it's a good book to still have, that' why I'm so glad to win this one, I wasn't looking forward to giving my loaned copy back to my friend. :)

    Alex, yeah I loved watching it, I could watch more of Rufus, looks like a modern day Andy Griffith.
