Raven Sees Cat - Raven has a Blonde Moment

This is one of the best cat videos I have ever seen. For a moment I thought it was one cat and a mirror! Duh....!! My only excuse for that blonde moment (I used to be one when I had hair) is that the video is really really good!.

Vertical Fuel Cell Technology

I am really excited about where Honda has taken fuel cell technology to make the whole thing practical and truly truly clean energy. This because not only is the Honda an electric car, it gets its electricity from a clean power electrical source - solar energy!!! You do not plug this car in. You "fill it" with Hydrogen. It takes less than five minutes.

In Hybrid Cars the Prius is the top car. Over 85 miles a gallon in the city and 80 miles per gallon on the highway. An…

Raven Admires Bear

What is a blog for? For me it is to do what I want to do: to be silly and wise and whatever tickles my fancy whenever I want to. I am only accountable to myself and to the limits of good taste that any of my readers might or might not have!

This picture below fits into all of those categories. Whatever! I just happen to like it.

Shining Raven also admires tough men who get the job done.

Raven Boasts or An Example of Mission?

Lovin' Griz, a new warrior, an initiate into the tribe to which I belong, recently posted on this network three pictures of his Truck. The pictures showed various ManKind Project type decals on the truck . One decal asks: "How Is Your Life?" and provides MKP contact information if a man on the road who sees the decal wants to do something about it.

Simple recruitment techniques that work. Lovin' Griz has had much buzz occur because of his simple pictorial outreach. All he…

A Proud Moment For A Young Man

Shining Raven boasts, Richard boasts, this night, and I am sure into the following days..

I boast about, I applaud, and I honor a young man by the name of Dawson. He is kind of related to me, so that I consider him and love him as a grandson, though genetically speaking there is no blood in our relationship.

Tonight, as a result of setting his own goals and working to obtain them - he received his first yellow stripe on his white belt in…

A Shameless Plea

It has been two whole days, 48 hours, and poor old shining raven has only three friends so far inside the the MKP-Network - and one of them is himself!!!

Wisdom says "any port in a storm". But, wanting to have brothers who "friend me" is a need that I believe all men have. Call it a kind of community or a…

Jon Stewart: The Interview by Rachel Maddow

I believe Jon Stewart - who this year is considered to be the most influential man in the USA bar none, including the VIP persons that he does satire about - is a man who is clear about his values and his mission and his vocation. He models for me the kind of compassionate non-partisanship that I fundamentally desire to have, to be, at all times. And indeed that Gold is in me.

This interview, done by Rachel Maddow, a woman grounded in her own passions and who has her own clarity,…

Sign-Up Control

A question for the managers of this Canada MKP site:
What control is exercised on prospective members of this site?
Can anyone sign up?
Or is this supposed to be a site just for MKP initiates?
If it's an MKP site and there is a sign-in process, I would prefer that there be a public area and that the forums and blogs be restricted to those men who have been through the warrior weekend.

MKP Canada - Sign-Up Page

Hi -

Recognizing that it was (is) much simpler & easier to use some 'out-of-the-box' software for this, I have to say that, as a Canadian, signing up for a Canadian MKP site, I rather object to 'USA' (as opposed to Canada) appearing as the default country in the sign-up page, and in the same light, I would also object that a sign-up page for a Canadian site asks me to enter 'State' and not 'Province'.

A little Canadian patriotism going on here -- if we are going to have a Canadian… Continue

Dad's Make a Difference is a great group for any region!!

I sat in on Dad's last night. Even though one of the men and I there have had a rough go of it due to a business disconnect, I really appreciate the support that men receive from the group. It is basically a men's circle with a different brand that works. CM Justice has been running them for several years and is a big advocate for them!

The Welcome Screen

I have noted a very neat thing about the welcome screen / home page for the network after signing in. The third blue box says ADD CONTENT. When you click on it you can very easily access your own Blog and most other activities you want to take part in like building your photo albums and sharing them with other men.

Of course it is also easy if your first click after checking the home page for new content is to go to the MY PAGE…
