I can safely go ahead and give thanks to all readers for making this month the biggest and most heavily trafficked month of the year along with the best August in at least three years. Thank you, all. It’s also safe to say this blog will never be mainstream. I’m grateful for that! But, in addition to the longtime fans (all two of you!), we welcome friends from Freedom Prepper, other prepper places, the Shield Wall brigade, and even a few holdovers from TPC. I’d be remiss not to mention the bots – I love being big in Whereverstan.

Anyway, this one may or may not wrap the month. Tomorrow brings another PPN report and, then, more of the same old keeping on. Forward!

Thanks again. P
