I live in the wilderness. Well, on the edge of the wilderness. Bears camp out in my backyard. Seriously. One broke into a neighbor’s home a couple of years ago.

Brits manning up
Seems as though much of the vaguely civilized world (this may or may not include Russia, depends on your take on “Mad Vlad” Putin) is starting to realize it’s time for men to get up, dust themselves off, shake their heads and realize there’s more to being a man than either behaving like a completeContinue reading “Brits manning up”
