Note from the publisher


   Don't throw away your vote


Where I live:
   Chasing down cows at Jenny Creek

What if there's no doctor?
   Knowing CPR can save a life

Ayoob on firearms:
   The best deal in home-defense guns

Homesteading on the electronic frontier:
   Looking for love in cyberspace

   These chocolate treats make great gifts and delicious holiday desserts
   Make delicious, eye-catching holiday breads
   Delicious holiday cakes don't have to be diet-busters

Original Poems:
   John Earl Silveira
