Note – I am running a rewind today for a few reasons. One is that the new ducks are coming in either tomorrow or Thursday and I need to get everything ready.
Additionally I have to go out to Granburry to buy some stock tanks to plumb into our aquaponics system this weekend. Normally this is a much shorter trip but someone out there bought all the 100 gallon tanks at my Tractor Supply, and you know who you are LOL.
I also need to get all the new stands built for that system this week and need some more lumber to get that done.
Lastly my voice is a wreck from this current cold or flu or whatever it is, I barely got though yesterdays show, so it seems like a good day to rest my vocal cords and get shit done!
Today is an episode of TSP Rewind, commercial free versions of past podcast episodes.
Today’s episode was originally, Episode-845- Ben Franklin on Modern Survivalism and originally aired on Feb 22, 2012.
The notes below are the original notes from that episode.
Recently I get a ton of emails on an article called. 8 Personal Finance Lessons from Benjamin Franklin that was published on the very cool blog, The Art of Manliness.
Several dozen of you told me that this article sounded like 8 things I say often on TSP.
So rather than read the article at all I decided to do the show based just on the 8 tenets of Franklin and see how much in sync we really are or are not. One thing for sure old Ben’s advice seems quite timeless to me.

Just noticed that I am not able to download or listen to the episode (as a rewind episode) as there is no “play in popup” or “download” option as there are with usual podcasts.
I can likely go to the original episode 845 and listen to the original, but I think that there might have been a tech gremlin with this one.
Jon, just go to the search and put in episode 0845 and listen to the original.
I did, thanks Danny (listening to it now). Just wanted to let Jack know was all 🙂
Well shit! Today is a day that keeps giving crappy gifts. Well, it is fixed now.
I knew you’d fix it quickly. Thanks, Jack.
“Surround yourself with those who share your values…”
Well for someone who likes music, metal, hardcore and even some punk, I’ve found most consumers of this type of music share my values, it’s the bands that don’t! Not sure if it’s all for show, actually who knows?
So when you come across a band that shares your values, promote the hell out of them.
Good band from upstate NY, WarTimeManner. linked song is call Preppers from their album Victory Demands Sacrifice. Also have a song on this album called “I plead the 2nd” with some Charlton Heston quotes. Pretty awesome.
