How To Survive A Flight

how to survive a flightHave you ever wondered why you were told to turn off your cell phone during a flight or to put your seat in an upright position?  After this past flight, I finally started asking these questions.  It is 2016 and a cell phone has the capability to take down a multi million dollar airplane?  You will be surprised how much power your mobile has after this podcast.  I also looked into etiquette on an airplane.  Rather you like it or not, you are stuck with these people for the next few hours.  Do you really want to be that guy that makes life miserable for everyone else?

What about the TSA?  I have seen some wild things be taken away from people and heard about the strangest reasons why they want to touch your underwear.  I wanted to see what are some of the strangest things that you can take on a plane.

How to win the state fair games

how to win state fair gamesIt is that time of year again where you go to the fair and eat food that you shouldn’t eat, ride rides that were trucked in last night, and play games that have been rigged for you to fail.  From the time you walk into the fair grounds and down the midway to the time you walk up to the carny game and pay money, you have been persuaded.  Or should I say that your kids have been persuaded to want the prizes.  Now it is up to you to win that coveted stuffed spongebob squarepants or the awesome over-sided bear they want.

If you are the kind of guy that looks at these games and says “I can win that, all you have to do is blank” you have already lost.  These games are rigged so that you will fail most of the times you play them.  When you loose, your manhood is questioned, you pay more money, the fair wins.  I am going to take you through some of these games and give you that winning edge that you need to win!

Beginner Meditation 101 from Counter Culturist

A few months ago I posted a show called Meditation for Gentlemen.  Linked is the podcast in which I took you through a guided meditation and explained the benefits of meditation.

I received an email from a blogger that had an article that had a great write up on meditating for beginners.

Kevin from the Counter Culturist did a great job writing up this article and I encourage you to head over and check out his work.

Just as a quick read from the beginning of the article.

Meditation for the Beginner by Counter Culturist

Meditation has seen a huge surge in popularity in recent years. Ask anyone and they’ve surely heard of meditation, or are trying to build a beginner meditation practice for themselves. But, far from being a trend, meditation is an ancient art that extends back thousands of years. Only now, are modern sciences beginning to validate the positive effects and benefits that are possible from the simple act of meditation.

Meditation is an old-school practice that’s seen a resurgence in popularity in recent years. Meditation is the art of mental stillness. It’s a practice that can enable a host of benefits from enhanced clarity, to reduced stress, increased happiness, and in the far reaches of the practice even enlightenment.

Meditation has been practiced by a variety of religious traditions over the years. Including Buddhism, Hinduism, and even Christianity. There are literally hundreds of different styles of meditation and techniques you can practice. Some are even conflicting ideas.

So, you might be wondering? Where do I start. Hopefully, with this post. This article will help you navigate through the sea of meditation information available and give you an overarching view of what meditation actually is, the best ways for beginners to develop a practice, as well as, a simple practice for getting started in less than five minutes.

Emergencies Men Should Know How To Handle Pt2

emergencies men should know how to handleOne of the scariest things that a man can endure is witnessing emergencies that involve his family.  The blood pressure rises along with the pulse rate and the brain goes into overdrive.  To the normal person the next step would be to freak out and panic.  To the Gentleman however, the next step would be to calm down and start fixing the situation.

This series that I am starting is going to be an accumulation of the most common emergencies that men face on a day to day basis from the standpoint of an experienced first responder.  My goal for these shows is to help men pull themselves together and start being the fixer that his family wants him to be.  Do you want to be that guy that runs around panicking because something just happened to him and his family or do you want to be able to help the situation?

If you have not already, check out part 1 of this mini series found HERE.

Best Apps To Stay Connected While Seperated

best apps to stay connected while seperatedWe all have that time in our lives that we are forced to be in a separate location than our families.  None of us enjoy having to do this, but it is apart of being in a world that is in constant motion.  This does not give us the excuse to allow ourselves to close our eyes to what could effect them.  We have the ability to download certain apps to our phones to alert us when something is going on where our family is located.  These apps can push notify you when there are storms, riots, or other emergencies that you should know about.  Make sure you are doing the gentleman thing and keep track of what is happening around your family instead of just hoping that nothing will happen.

The apps that are mentioned in the show today are not in any way affiliated by Skilled Gentlemen Podcast.  Please understand that these are suggestions and you should use them at your own will.

Permaculture Design- Zones

permaculture design zonesIn permaculture design you have the idea and concept of zones.  Zones are a way to organize your property to make sure that the correct plants get the appropriate attention based on the fact that you are going to visit certain areas more often than others.  In other words, we are going to take our excuses and our laziness and design an area that keeps me from working harder than I need to.  When you take into consideration that you can sit down with a bit of information (learned from me and others) and completely transform your property from a money sink into a place where you can grow food and feed your family, it is a topic that gentlemen SHOULD take seriously.  I little bit of work mixed with a lot of information and you can feed your family with nutritious food.



What are permaculture zones?

Are You A Soft Man Or Hard Gentleman

are you a soft manI have been hearing a lot about men being soft here lately.  I sat down to do some research on this phenomenon and came back with the fact that men are becoming really soft.  There is that section of men in the world that have certain attributes about them and have no idea why no one wants to be around them.  People talk bad about them because they are not manning up and taking charge of their responsibilities.  Today’s show is an effort to bring light to this fact and hopefully encourage you to change this out of your life.  To make that effort to go from a soft man to a hard gentleman.  Not only do our families expect it but they deserve to have a hard gentleman in their lives.



Are you a soft man? How do you fix this!

  • Where I feel like this bashing came from
  • Why I didn’t like reading those posts
  • How can you define a soft man
  • My steps to becoming a hard gentleman
    • Stop Complaining so much
    • Follow through with your plans
    • Take your responsibilities to heart
    • Don’t be afraid of confrontation and don’t be a butt head
    • Get stuff done
  • How can our children learn from this list
  • You should make your own list

There were no usable sources from research.  After reading a few I decided to not use that information and come up with my own.
