By iwano@_84

Why shoot traditional?

Why would you choose a simple stick bow over today’s shiny, technologically advanced compound monsters? While it is true that modern advances have made archery more beginner friendly, the traditional longbow remains potent, lighting fast, and great fun.

This translates to a sport which is more accessible and immediately fulfilling compared to the time-honed training of the past. Nonetheless, the foundations of good archery remain unchanged regardless of the make and model that you hold in your hands. Possessing the skill to shoot well with traditional bows directly translates to the ability to shoot well with modern bows. The opposite is not true; those who have relied entirely on modern gadgets to shoot often have to start fresh when using a traditional bow.

The simple longbow was the foundation … Read More

By iwano@_84

Do cat repellents work? How to stop a cat from using garden as litterbox? Tell me how to keep cats out of my garden. These are common questions of concern to all gardeners but is there a real answer?

The first line of defence is to ensure that your yard boundaries are secure. Any gaps in your fence should be blocked to deny low level access. But cats can jump so fix a taut wire or string some six inches above the top of your fence to deter this approach.

Once inside your garden many people say that the best cat repellent is a dog who will soon see off any feline invader. If you are not a dog lover then you will have to resort to more passive methods. Since cats like to lie on freshly dug soil you should lay mulch on your borders so that no bare … Read More

By iwano@_84

In the deafening silence of the early twenties, Great Britain was a grieving woman who had lost sons, brothers, husbands and lovers.

In 1922 the Royal entourage of his Majesty King George V which included Field Marshall Earl Haig and Major General Sir Fabian Ware, the head of the War Graves Commission, travelled across Northern France honouring the thousands who had died in the Great War.

By iwano@_84

Pontius Pilate reigned as prefect of Judea in the time of Tiberius Caesar Augustus; Roman emperor in A.D26. of the Julian calendar. The great Roman Empire extended from the English channels to the gates of Mesopotamia.

College Prep Vs Prison Prep

By iwano@_84

Recently, I was driving to Atlanta from St. Louis. Anyone who has traveled the route knows that along Highway 57, in a town called Ina, there is a Prison on one side of the highway and a college on the other side. The Big Muddy River Correctional Center stands directly across the highway from Rend Lake College. For years, I never really saw the college. The prison is much more visible with its large barbed wire fence and tall watch tower. The scene made it easy to envision the life of the inmates.

It was not until this trip that I noticed the college across the highway. There is a beautiful sign competing for the attention of highway travelers, but it loses easily to the potential sighting of armed prison workers across the highway. As I traveled the highway, I paralleled my driving experience to high school. For many students, … Read More
