2014 Review: Blogging

One thing that I have enjoyed most this year has been blogging. Since I was a boy I’ve enjoyed writing, here I have the opportunity to share with people what I have learned from my father, my reading, and the experiences I’ve had in life.

Here a few of my favorite posts over the year, if you didn’t get a chance to read them take a look.


For the Summer my goal was to post a new catchphrase every week, I believe I missed only two weeks. Here are a few favorites.


I ended the series with one of my favorite quotes by Davy Crockett. “Be sure you’re right, then go ahead.” Through my life Crockett has always been a role model of mine, emulating the character of the American frontier spirit. I thought it fitting to end my phrase series with his admonition.

I wrote several articles on the topic of Endurance, the second of this series focused on survival. Something I held close to my heart during the harder days at farmer’s markets.

The second series I have primarily written is my Rules. I’ve been keeping this list since I was a young boy becoming a man. Here are a few of my favorite and best rated.

In EverythingGood or BadLearn a Lesson

Rule 24. Is probably the best rated of my rules. It is inclusive and reminds us that when life gives us lemons it’s best to look for the lemonade recipe.

A personal favorite rule of mine. Rule 44. An ounce of prudence is worth a pound of cleverness. We often think, In for a penny, in for a pound. And fail to consider the consequences to our actions. This rule is to remind us that fools rush in where angels fear to tread.

Reader Favorites

Here are two posts particularly well liked by our readers.

My Pappy..

A post my family and friends enjoyed. This particular article was written for the sake of father’s and the wisdom they bestow. Maverick’s Pappy advised his sons, and our parents have done the same.

This was one of my earlier posts, but Heart of the Handshake was one I enjoyed most. A bit of wisdom I learned from my father. The handshake, between men and women of honor, is a sacred oath. In today’s age this is rarely the case, but out on the farm the tradition, though endangered, is still here.

Sum of the Matter

Thanks for strolling down memory lane with me, I hope you enjoyed the scenery as much as me.


It has been a pleasure sharing with you, have a fantastic New Year’s Eve and I’ll see you in 2015!
