Hi everyone. Unfortnately my Mother in Law is gravely ill and not expected to live very much longer. We are talking hours to a day or two. This has been a Long , prolonged illness and her suffering will finally end.

Unfortunately that doesn't take away the finality, hurt, pain, and all the trimmings that go along with it. This is my wife's Step-Mother, so we have her 3 Step Brothers and their families converging together by tomorrow. Unfortunately this is one of the tough parts of life, but a process we all must endure sooner or later. I happen to believe in the Great Hereafter, with an awesome God, and the reward of eternal life in this belief system. It brings a lot of comfort- but it really doesn't lessen- nor do I think it should- alter the grieving process.

For those of you who will - I simply ask for prayers of comfort for the family, and for others who may not believe the same-- just that well wishes and positive thoughts be sent our families way. This can possibly bring healing in some areas that we could use a little help in.

PLEASE- a special prayer for my wife- as tomorrow would be her Fathers birthday, and we lost him- an Air Force Bomber Pilot, and retired Lt. Colonel in the Air Corps, several years ago to a long drawn out battle with Prostate Cancer. We were able to talk with her Step Mother as late as this past Thursday- when she was sitting up and eating.

Many of you may know, that in the process of dying, a lot of times there is a brief period of almost Miraculous recovery in terminally ill patients. It almost seems cruel, as this gives a lot of families false Hope. It also possibly affords people time to make amends and ask forgiveness, take care of unfinished business etc.

So on this night- I would like for you to think :

Is there anything I- (WE) need to do with Family, ex-family, friends or anyone- that we might wish we had done earlier. Sometimes we are given this chance, and I hate to sound preachy- but from experience it might help one or two who may read this, and are able to use it!

I Love you my Blogger Family, and want to take this moment to say- while I truly don't know you as well as I'd like- I'd like to think of us as a Family- and tell you that I appreciate and love each one of you. I don't do this for any other reason than the special bond of those that read this, and those that I follow!

You are truly special people in my life right now with the my little health concerns etc., and I have benefited more than you will ever know from this Blog and our Craziness and Laughter during this transition period in our lives.!

Much Love in Christ.....

I went to the ATM--withdrew all the money and counted it to see what the balance was, and redeposited it!

Anyone ever tried this? - THE ARTICLE IS SERIOUS.


How to achieve good vision while driving during a heavy downpour. 

We are not sure why it is so effective; just try this method when it rains heavily.  This method was told by a Police friend who had experienced and confirmed it. It is useful...even driving at night. 

Most of the motorists would turn on HIGH or FASTEST SPEED of the wipers during heavy downpour, yet the visibility in front of the  windshield is still bad......

In the event you face such a situation, just try your SUN GLASSES (any model will do), and miracle! All of a sudden, your visibility in front of your windshield is perfectly clear, as if there is no rain.

Make sure you always have a pair of SUN GLASSES in your car, as you are not only helping yourself to drive safely with good vision, but also might save your friend's life by giving him this idea..

Try it yourself and share it with your friends! Amazing, you still see the drops on the windshield, but not the sheet of rain falling.

You can see where the rain bounces off the road.  It works to eliminate the "blindness" from passing semi's spraying you too.

Or the "kickup" if you are following a semi or car in the rain. They ought to teach that little tip in driver's training.  It really does work.

This warning is a good one!   I wonder how many people know about this~

A 36 year old female had an accident several weeks ago and totaled her car. A resident of Kilgore , Texas  she was traveling between Gladewater & Kilgore. It was raining, though not excessively, when her car suddenly began to hydro-plane and literally flew through the air.  She was not seriously injured but very stunned at the sudden occurrence!

When she explained to the highway patrolman what had happened he told her something that every driver should know - NEVER DRIVE IN THE RAIN WITH YOUR CRUISE CONTROL   ON .  She thought she was being cautious by setting the cruise control and maintaining a safe consistent speed in the rain. But the highway patrolman told her that if the cruise control is on when  your car begins to hydro-plane and your tires lose contact with the pavement,
your car will accelerate to a higher rate of speed making you take off
like an airplane. She told the patrolman that was exactly what had occurred.

The patrolman said this warning should be listed, on the driver's seat
sun-visor - NEVER use the CRUISE CONTROL WHEN

THE PAVEMENT IS WET OR ICY, along with the airbag warning. We tell our teenagers to set the cruise control and drive a safe speed - but we don't tell them to use the cruise control only when the pavement is dry.

The only person the accident victim found, who knew this (besides the patrolman), was a man who had a similar accident, totaled
his car and sustained severe injuries.

NOTE: Some vehicles (like the Toyota Sienna Limited XLE) will not allow you to set the cruise control when the windshield wipers are on. If you send this to 15 people and only one of them doesn't know about this, then it was all worth it. You might have saved a life. 

My DirecTv receiver died--or at least I'm getting a 14 -830 error code that I am to call Tech support to troubleshoot. This is a refurbished unit and it worked quite well for about a year and a half! Now it is possibly DOA- and on

FOOTBALL SATURDAY!!!! So I'll spend 14.2 hours on the phone only to be told to box it up and send it back!

Anyway- I'm looking forward to calling and speaking with Charles  (Rashish): all I will be able to think about is Outsourced (SUX BAD, IMHO)- I though it had awesome possibilities, but I was sure let down by tit so far--but it will make this call funny!)

I'll let you know who I get!!


Walmart has announced it will soon begin offering customers a new discount item, Walmart's own brand of wine.  The world's largest retail chain is rumored to be teaming up with the Ernest & Julio Gallo Winery of California to produce the wine at an affordable price in the $2 to $5 range.  Wine connoisseurs may not be inclined to put a bottle of the Walmart brand into their shopping carts.  "There is a market for inexpensive wine," said Kathy Micken, Professor of Marketing at University of Arkansas, Bentonville, "however, branding will be very important.Customer surveys were conducted to determine the most attractive name for the Walmart wine brands and varieties.  The top surveyed names in order of popularity were:
                    10. Chateau Traileur Parc
                      9. White Trashfindel
                      8. Big Red Gulp
                      7. World Championship Riesling
                      6. NASCARbernet
                      5. Chef Boyardeaux
                      4. Peanut Noir
                      3. I Can't Believe It's Not Vinegar
                      2. Grape Expectations
                      1. Nasti Spumante
The beauty of Walmart wine is it can be served with either white meat (Possum) or red meat (Squirrel).
P.S.:  Don't bother writing back to tell me this is a hoax.  I know possum ain’t white meat.

Rare Pic of Wild Domestic Beer. I caught this shot by luck!

 For  those that don't know about history ... Here is a condensed version:

Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters/gatherers.
They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter.

The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer
and the invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:

1 . Liberals

2. Conservatives.

Once beer
was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed.

Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to BBQ at night
while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement...

Other men
who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly BBQ's and doing the sewing, fetching, and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement.

Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. They became known as girlie-men.
Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of Democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that conservatives provided.

Over the years conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant.
Liberals are symbolized by the jackass for obvious reasons.

Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine
or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish
but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard
liberal fare.. Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of their women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers
in Hollywood and group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat.

Conservatives drink domestic beer,
mostly Bud or Miller. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, engineers, corporate executives, 
athletes, members of the military, airline pilots and generally anyone who works productively.
 Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living.

Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers

 and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans
are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals
remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America . They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a 
 business of trying to get more for nothing.

Here ends today's lesson in world history:

It should be noted that a Liberal may have a momentary urge to

 angrily respond to the above before forwarding it.

A Conservative will simply laugh and be so convinced of the absolute

truth of this history that it will be forwarded immediately to other true
 believers and to more liberals just to piss them off.B

And there you have it. Let your next action reveal your true self.....I'm

going to have another beer.

I wish I could take credit for this brilliant synopsis of the History of the World- but I can't--Author Unknown.
