Nice day here, mid-upper 40s, sunshine. Still mud everywhere. Managed to put out a couple of round bales without getting stuck. Shot up some "test loads" I was working up. The .308 loads were pretty good, .45 loads mangled the 3" black aiming point of my target. GEW88 didn't like my cast/red dot loads, but the '98 did. Cut and split some wood, dead elm tree standing near enough to the gravel road I could get to without getting in the mud.

Coffee and tea are hot.

Thanks for the coffee

Woke to 2nd day of sunshine.. in a row. Calling to change tomorrow.
The smell of skunk overwhelms this morning. When we let the first round of dogs out. I believe someone hit one on highway behind us. As long as the dogs don’t find it and roll on it.
  We don’t see many of them around here-we see more armadillos.  Possums on a half shell.


I have used TB for 30-30 160gr GC hardcast bullets also used 4195. The latter seemed best. Both were good to a hundred yards

Morning all.

Currently -7, WC -25. We got 7 inches of fresh white stuff last night, and it doesn't seem terribly excited to stop coming down, either.

Today is going to be a long one for me. Had a speech in my first class of the day, a test in the second, then I have a meeting from 12-12:30, then a quiz in my next class, then another meeting at 4, then I work until 1am. Living the dream.

So long as you aren't renting pigs.

It's cold and snowy here in Billings.   We got another 6" today.  Not showing any sign of stopping, either.

Thank you for the coffee this morning.  Going to try and finish pruning trees today.  I am going to skip the Pear tree this year it got away from me last year and now too much for me to handle.

Packing rations, doing a lecture on Civil War rations tonight.

My visial aid will be one soldiers individual ration for the day.  Both camp and marching including 1.6 oz green coffee beans.  Comminsarry is out of desicrated veggies though, not uncommon. ::)

Got 1 pound hardtack for the marching ration and a 1 pound 6 oz loaf baked as would have been done for the camp ration.

Ok, posted  this on the GAF page.   


Ok, going to do a lecture tonight on Civil War rations in the Union Army, will do on on the Confederate Army another time.

Got my props ready, of course they wouldn't be nicely bagged up, the soldier put them in his haversack how ever he could.

First picture is garrison ration for one day.

22 oz loaf of soft bread when available.

3/4 pound of pork, either salt pork or bacon

2/3 cup dry beans or peas.

2 tablespoons vinegar.

1/3 cup sugar.

1/6 cup salt.

1.6 oz green coffee.

1 oz cube of dried and pressed vegetables if available.  The commissary was out today.

These were called desicated or as the soldiers called them desicrated.

Second picture is the marching ration, no beans or vegtables were issued and 1 pound of hard bread was issued athough this was also sometimes issued in camp.

So here is your daily ration, go forth and prepare it and enjoy.

Afternoon all.

Currently 11 degrees in Billings. Roads are covered in snow and ice.

I'm going to Butte Sunday/Monday to get poked and prodded by Uncle Sam's doctors. Then Wednesday I leave for Denver for spring break through Saturday.

Rowdy got his last stiches out today.  Looks good.  Vet had to girl vet students today observing and they both got kisses.  The one told Judy he was as sweet as she told them.
