Men's Journal Magazine

II      I don’t normally read Men’s Journal Magazine but I recently bought a copy at an airport.  I read the   O   October 2012 issue.  It had a lot of interesting information in it . Some of things I learned

1.  It had a terrific two page photo of grizzly. The bear is in a river with its head above the water and the rest of its body in the water.

2.  I learned that the number of family farms has recently increased for the first time since 1947.  Although many of the new farms are micro farms.

3.  I read an interesting interview about Philip Cousteau, Jr., the grandson of Jacque Cousteau.

4. I read an article about Roland Murphy a watchmaker who makes watches the old fashion way with hundreds of parts.

5.  81 days across Antartica.
