Swamped with SHEEP!?!

Posted on February 15, 2016

       The schedule has gotten completely bogged down.  I am normally a fairly organized person, but the first 2 weeks of February can make somebody get old, fat and gray haired.  Between all of the state office PILES of deadlines, Woodward entries, OYE entries and trying to get stock right, things get hectic.  Now, throw in trying to keep up with personal crap and $H!#!  A person can end up swamped.

Best National Anthem rendition….EVER!

Posted on February 12, 2016

       Many people have been taking up facebook, texts, news space and other form of social media as they gush about how good lady gaga did performing the National Anthem before the super bowl.  I even mentioned that I thought that she did a good job.   Let’s review this deal.  Personally, I think that she sang our National Anthem straight forward and like it is supposed to be sung.  She obviously has

Super Sunday

Posted on February 07, 2016

      The weather was supposed to be super here in paradsise on this Sunday.  The sun shined, but the wind is howling.  The wind wasn’t supposed to crank it up until Monday.  Hopefully, this means that it will quit early.   I watched a 30 for 30 on espn when I got home from mass.  It was about the ’85 Bears.  These 30 for 30 shows are very well done.  I really enjoyed

Tuesday Evening

Posted on February 05, 2016

      Tuesday evening (yes, I realize that it is Thursday evening when I am writing this) turned out to be quite the busy evening.  First of all, it was the Groundhog Day Semen Sale.  Thank you to all the buyers and bidders.  Judging from the sales report, it looks like several people in Indiana are planning on some goat breedings using frozen semen.  Most of the lots will be headed to the Hoosier

Groundhog Day

Posted on February 02, 2016

2-2-16       Groundhog Day is here.  Punxsutawney, PA is awating Punxsutawney Phil to emerge from his burrow.  This is one of the more iditoic holidays, but it is kind of cool.  I would like to be in Punxsutawney, PA for Groundhog Day.  This town has managed to find a reason to celebrate.  It is a pretty good marketing campaign because I’m pretty sure that the majority of us would have never heard of

Good Story

Posted on January 30, 2016

      It is a known fact that I like a good story.  There are those people that never realize a story is going on right in front of them.  While some people do a really good job of witnessing stories, some people live these stories and others just happen to write the script for a good story.          Recently, I have had to deal with haircut decisions.  Since 1996, I

Bigger Shoes

Posted on January 29, 2016

      “I need to buy bigger shoes.  In my effort to stomp out laziness and idiocy, I have realized that I am going to need bigger shoes.”   I would love to take credit for this quote, but I heard it from the legendary Tom Lamle.  I have had several incidents the past few days that have made me think about buying bigger shoes, even though my ECCOs fit just fine.  I don’t

   If you make a fruit salad and put grapes in it, the grapes always taste like grapes.  They don’t take on the flavor of strawberries, cherries or even the dreaded grapefruit.  Basically, the grapes are impervious to the other fruits.   Likewise, if you make a chex party mix, the pretzels always taste like pretzels.  They don’t take on the worcestershire sauce or the cayenne pepper. They stay pretzels.  Once again, the word impervious

Crunching #s

Posted on January 26, 2016

I’ve been studying several sets of numbers.  From the past several years.  Why?  I want to know if this flushing goats deal is worth it or not.  I know that I get a foul taste in my mouth when I mention flushing, but is it really that bad? Here’s what I will tell you: 1–It is a lot like Vegas.  In short, you better gamble often and put money on numerous does.  If you are

Finally–Vol. 2

Posted on January 25, 2016

Yes!  Yes!  Finally, yes!  The sun finally shined.  It was decent this morning, got warmer and was good all day.  For the first time in several weeks, one could go outside and not feel like they were being stabbed repeatedly with an ice pick.  The wheat and triticale in this part of the world had retreated back into the ground.  It perked up a bit today.  The does left the oat hay bale and headed
