Apocabox-April,2015. Remember it's not if but when

Image
Mr. Creek Stewart is back with another amazing Apocabox. So let's rip open this box and get to it!!

First up is Thompson Survival Snare Kit $15. Designed for US Air Force troops during WWII. Comes with two different sized snares, an instruction sheet(which I really need) and tie wire. These are handmade in Missouri.

Backwoods Magazine $5, Vol36 No 3. Autographed by cover boy Creek Stewart himself. A great magazine with a great interview of Creek.

Apocaseed Vault $10. This is a mini-portable packed seed kit. It has a 3+ year shelf life. Seeds are open pollinated, heirloom vegetable seeds. Has peas, bush beans, peppers, tomatoes, and cucumbers.

Kellam Camp knife $16. This is a very cool knife. I was so stoked to see it. Very similar to a Mora. Blade is Carbon steel with a hardness of 56-57. Tempered plastic handle, and ambidextrous sheath. This knife made my day. If you like Mora, you will love this one.

Light Cube Xtreme $7, this is the coolest little flashlight I have ever seen. A 9-vo…

Terry Pratchett

He may be gone but he shall never be forgotten. It was recently announced that he finished a book before his death and it will be published on Sept. 10th 2015. I am not sure if it will be available everywhere on that date or just in the UK. They usually release his books in the UK a week or two ahead of the rest of the world. 

School part 2

So school is going o.k. so far. I'm learning a lot, I guess. My math class has four projects this term, and the book is broke down to 4 chapters, so the 1st project and 1st chapter are now done and turned in. I hope I did well on the project. I feel I either hit it out of the park, or bombed it completely. We will find out soon enough. Speech is by far my favorite class so far. Again we just finished out 1st module project. I hope and feel I did well, but again I shall see soon. Registration for summer term is Friday. I have everything lined up and hopefully will not screw up like I did this term.  

Follow up to this post, I got a D on my project but spoke with the teacher and got it raised to a C. Did much better on the second project, got a A, and my last project will be turned in tomorrow.

School

So yesterday was my first day back at school. It went o.k. I guess. It started with an issue, but I think it will work out. I screwed up when I registered for my classes. I clicked on the right class, but not the right day. It was open on Monday and Wednesday, or Tuesday and Thursday. I wanted the Tuesday one. So I ended up missing the course, and had to scramble and find a replacement. My next choice was a business speech or a interpersonal speech class. The business class didn't work with my schedule, so I picked the interpersonal. It is technically full, with two people on the waiting list. Several people didn't show, unfortunately, more people showed up wanting to be in the class. As it stands I am on the chopping block. 20 seats, I am number 21. Teacher was awesome and said she might make an exception for 21. I can't believe I am saying this but I am actually excited about this course. After the first day I am pumped to go to this class. Now one other thing has come u…

Sir Terry Pratchett

Image
It is with immeasurable sadness that we announce that author Sir Terry Pratchett has died at the age of 66.
Larry Finlay, MD at Transworld Publishers:

"I was deeply saddened to learn that Sir Terry Pratchett has died. The world has lost one of its brightest, sharpest minds.

In over 70 books, Terry enriched the planet like few before him. As all who read him know, Discworld was his vehicle to satirize this world: he did so brilliantly, with great skill, enormous humour and constant invention.
Terry faced his Alzheimer's disease (an 'embuggerance', as he called it) publicly and bravely. Over the last few years, it was his writing that sustained him. His legacy will endure for decades to come.

My sympathies go out to Terry's wife Lyn, their daughter Rhianna, to his close friend Rob Wilkins, and to all closest to him." 

Terry passed away in his home, with his cat sleeping on his bed surrounded by his family on 12th March 2015. Diagnosed with PCA [1] in …
