Some Humor and Fun – Charlie Dog Takes Out Jeff D.

Friend of the Spirko family Jeff D (not sure he wants his last name published so I will leave it at D) stopped by the TSP homestead. Charlie decided to have some fun, it really is a good thing Charlie is a friendly dog. Can you imagine what would have happened if this was an attack vs. just Charlie playing!

FYI for drive by visitors that don’t call first! Charlie doesn’t like strangers until they are introduced, he is part of our security protocol. But as you can see once introduced he is as friendly as they come though a bit rough in his play.

This is the “dangerous pit bull” that has been so hyped up by the media.  Sure he will defend his home and his family but would not any good dog?  The truth is simple dogs of any breed are a product of their upbringing.  Charlie is a clown, he gets into trouble but he is as friendly as they come.

We just got DNA results on Charlie, he is part Stafford Terrier, part Bull Terrier and part Pointer.  So basically a pit bull and pointer mix.  Oh the horror, oh the terror of a dog that licks you so viciously, plays with such reckless abandon.  Something must be done, pit bulls must be stopped, won’t someone think of the children, won’t someone think of the Jeff!

Enjoy, it is pretty damn funny!

You Guys Broke the PermaEthos Server

Okay here is the deal, when I set up the PermaEthos Blog I did so on a shared account on one of my accounts.  Apparently the show today has taken it the heck out!

Here is a direct link to the video promo for the PDC on YouTube.  We will move PermaEthos to our main dedicated server but we can’t do that today.

And just to make sure here is the video in an embed in this post.

Chicks, Ducks and a Goose First Days Out on Pasture

An Interview with Bob Wells

Hey folks I am literallly slamed hanging out with a huge group of TSP folks and attending some amazing workshops and presentations but we did get this video up for you guys.  This is from last week when Josiah and I went out to Lindale to meet Bob Wells.

TSP Homestead First Year in Review on Video

So it seems crazy but we have been on our new homestead about a year at this point.  In that time we lost our friend Blackie and gained an incredible new one “Charlie Daniels Spirko“.  We ran our first ever internship program and were so lucky to have chosen Josiah Wallingford as our intern who has become part of the family.

As to our property for our first year we focused mostly on infrastructure design.  Right now we have over 100 fruit and nut trees in damp sand waiting for our April planting workshop with a hundreds more on order.   When you look at the property now it doesn’t yet have the hundreds of varieties of plantings and frankly it is still winter so a lot of stuff is still brown, but when we really took it in, the first year was quite incredible.

We decided to document the entire property for you guys.  Likely it is a good thing we did so because in a year or two I don’t know that anyone will ever believe how this property started out without seeing it for themselves.    I am providing this video which is over an hour and 20 minutes in full 1080i HD in place of a show today.

Ill be in California until Tuesday so there won’t be any episodes officially until Wednesday next week but I will be uploading some raw audio and video from California and will try to put something new up every day for your guys.

Jacks Rants – Episode 3 – Let’s Put 12 Medals in the Olympics to be Fair

To comment at YouTube see this video here at Lets Put 12 Medals in The Olympics to be Fair – Jack’s Rants Episode 3

Of course I am not serious but doesn’t it make more sense to give an Olympian a medal for 12th place then to give a trophy to a child who never won a game even one time.  Doesn’t it make more sense to give an Olympian a 5th place medal then to not keep score during a basket ball game so that no  one feels bad about losing.

As I say here, it isn’t our children that can’t handle failure, it is our parents.  Wake up America!
