The Large Hadron Collider finally did something noteworthy by colliding two protons together. Shockingly, a black hole did not develop. I’m just glad to see the thing finally running!
Closer to home, there has been no snow in March for the first time on record. While I’m enjoying the warmer than usual daytime temps, the lack of precipitation has me concerned. We can only coast off the water from the snow melts for so long before it becomes an issue.
Things are tenser than usual between North Korea and South Korea after the sinking of a Southern navy vessel. With 46 crew unaccounted for, the emotions are running high. Probably a mine, but I doubt it was an old one. More than likely the Norks are testing what they can get away with. With a weak U.S. president, the little dictators are running wild.
On the home front, I’m needing to get more ammo for my Savage .17HM2 to zero it in. We want to plant a garden and there are large amount of rabbits around here. Never have dressed and cooked a critter before, so I plan to kill two lepus with one stone by protecting the garden.
The .17HM2 is a necked down .22LR round with high velocity and frangibility. Shooting flat to 100 yards it disintegrates when it hits something which makes it a safer round to use than the venerable .22LR. It is a scope only kind of round and I need to get experience with scopes (being an iron sight kind of guy).
