Veteran’s Day!!

For starters, THANK YOU to all current and former men & women of the armed forces!!!   The American Way of Life is built upon the sacrifices of those that have and/or are currently serving. I cannot understand any American that does not respect our Armed Forces.  You don’t have to like the government but there has to be respect for those that are willing to serve.  These people defend and preserve our rights. Of

Like most humans, I like food.  I can really eat when it comes time.  As I travel, I like to eat at places that I can’t eat at near home.  It is well documented on here that I love Pappadeaux’s, Cooper’s BBQ and numerous steak, burger & bbq joints.  When I head to a certain part of the U.S., I know ahead of time and therefore, plan accordingly where and when I am going to

This word has become increasingly popular in our everyday lingo.   Sync used to just mean that things were working in synchronization.  Presently, one can sync their phone with their vehicle, computer, speaker, refrigerator, whatever you need to hook up to, it can be done. Remember when it was a big deal when a major artist was caught lip-syncing? In the livestock world, sync normally means getting females to have their estrous cycle at a

I have a very eclectic taste in music.  I love good tunes.  No matter the genre, I like a good song.  I remember things by the notes that were rolling through my skull at the time.  I’m not the only one. As people deal with me and listen to my tunes, the one artist that catches people off guard is the great Neil Diamond.  John Q. Kelln is the person that first introduced Neil Diamond

Some people can put words together and make things sound like they are “prettier than a twenty dollar whore”.  Others can attach words in such a way that reminds one of a beginning welder trying to scab together some plate metal with 6011 rod.  It just ain’t right. I have recently watched as yet another senior class struggles with the literary works of the iconic Shakespeare.  How in the hell did this dude’s works become

Baseball is finally over.  I’m not sure what Tammy will do with her time now.  That chick likes to watch post-season baseball. I think that it ought to be a law for every auto deal/tire shop to make dang sure that the tire sensors are programmed properly. Those two days of fall were nice.  Winter hit and hit hard.  That almost foot of snow that we got last week was probably the wettest snow that

Guardians of the Galaxy

I really like this movie.  I don’t remember every reading any comic book about the characters in the Guardians of the Galaxy.  Marvel did a great job of taking a somewhat obscure comic and making it into the current movie franchise.  Duke introduced me to this movie and I’m not alone in enjoying this flick as it did almost $800 million at the box office.  I liked the 2nd edition and I will watch the

I was in college the first time that I heard this term used in a judging situation.  I distinctly remember asking, “Uhhh, what does P.O.S. stand for?” I felt like a D.S. when I found out what P.O.S. stood for.  I should have seen that one coming.  If you don’t know, P.O.S.  stands for Piece Of $h!t.   Tonight, I tested the P.O.S. term.  I have always kind of wondered what the Point Of Separation

There are numerous “facts” about how close we are to spiders.  Some say that we are always within 8 feet of a spider.  Some will say three feet.  No matter what, there is always a spider nearby. While putting on a lots miles in the past week, I had time to think.  I noticed things along the roads in numerous states.       Which brings me to Dollar General stores.  Like spiders, they are

One of my favorite responders to this blog is a western Kansan that goes by the name Jamie Kratzer.  He has sent in requests, topics, replies, answers, questions, concerns, whatever…… There has been times that I hit submit and less than 2 minutes later…he responded.  Although his blog reply took several days, I still like it. Dude, it ain’t easy to type out some timely stuff for others to read.  I get it, I like
