Now It's Time.

Now it's time to get the CHRISTMAS stuff out and up. Set up the CHRISTMAS tree up after dinner yesterday. Hung the reef on the door, put the presents we have under the tree. Getting the outside lights strung out to hang, cleaning up the house. Getting some turkey salad going for sandwiches later. Just a wonderful weekend as a whole. Now that Halloween and Thanksgiving are over, NOW it's time to get ready for CHRISTMAS. Not before, and not the winter holiday, not my holiday tree or holiday stockings. This holiday is to celebrate the bitrh of JESUS CHRIST hence the name CHRISTMAS, not any of that other bullshit they've been throwing at us in the past few years. So, throw out all those holiday decorations you have, and go out and buy yourself some CHRISTMAS decorations. Or just don't celebrate CHRISTMAS.

It's Thanksgiving Day!!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving! Although I enjoy spending the holidays with my family, I don't think that the holidays are the only time to give thanks or celebrate life and who's in it. I believe that you should be thankful every day for what you have and the one's you love. Every day should be a day of giving and generosity, every season you should help the less fortunate and the homeless. So if you have family and friends that you truly cherish. I urge you to make time every day or at least every week to make a phone call and say, "Hey, I love you guys." Don't miss a moment to let the people you care about know that you care. Because, it doesn't matter who you are, what you do, or how you live. We all end up in the same place. A pine box, six feet down. And, you never know when it's your time, and even less so when it's someone you loves time. Also, I urge you to make time to give to the less fortunate and homeless year round. They don't just need your help during the holidays, they need it in the spring, summer, and fall too.

My First Calving.

Being raised by my grandparents, they treated me like I was born to them and they held nothing back. I spent the first five years of my life on a three hundred acre farm with a couple hundred head of cattle (just regular ole Holsteins if memory serves), pigs, chickens, tractors, and of course a couple dogs. I can't say I remember much of those first years, but I do remember a few. One that sticks out in my mind is when I "helped" birth a calf. At the time I sure thought I was doing all the good, mainly because my grandpa, cousin, and a couple hired hands that we had were telling me how good I was doing, and when it was over said how they couldn't have done it if I hadn't done my part. Now, if you have ever birthed a calf or know anything about it, you full well know that there's not much a four year old can do in that situation. I was mainly a gofer during this experience, and that did lend some credibility to how much I helped, but my main "job" was making sure the come-a-long stayed secured to the truck. There is really no way to attach a come-a-long directly to a pickup so we used a chain around the pintel hitch on the truck and then hooked the come-a-long to the chain. One of my jobs was to tape the hooks after the adults made sure it was secured correctly, then it was checked again after I was done to make sure things were ok. Always double check your work, lol. Then when the real work began, it was my job to keep an eye on the chain and come-a-long to make sure it stayed secured. After the calf was born, I did have to help with clean up, that was pretty.... pretty darn nasty. But, I was in there and I was helping damn it and I wasn't going to quit till the job was done. Through the experiences with my grandpa I was taught at a young age to work hard and to follow through with any jobs I undertake.

More quotes for you.

Always be a first-rate version of yourself instead of a second-rate of someone else.
  - Judy Garland

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
 - Herm Albright

You should always just be yourself, if you have to be a certain way for someone else to like you, they ain't worth the effort of changing. Be honest with yourself and everybody around you and you will find people that will love you for who you are and not try nor want to change you.

Regardless of the circumstances things will always get better, unless you just give up and let the bad hang around. The best first step to making the bad leave your life is to have a positive attitude. No matter what, you still have your life.

The Trap

I sit and wait
Deadly as they come
Wait for my prey
Just inside your door
My hairs on end
Anticipating the taste
Of the flesh I will partake
Keys mingle and jingle
Glimmer in the summer sun
Up on your porch now
Key slides home
Turn the knob
Swat a fly
Dazed landing on my chin
You shut the door
Up on my lip the fly has come
Still as a stone
I wait
You turn and see
Dinner I now have for me!
You look at me and say
Your soil looks a litte dry
But, I don't care
This fly is all mine!

Well Just Joke Around Why Don't Ya.

Been doing some research on a few topics but haven't found adequate information to post on them, so I thought I'd leave you with a joke today. Enjoy.

Three mice are sitting in a bar shooting whiskey. And, of course as these things go, they get into a who's tougher contest. The first mouse slams his shot, looks at the other two and says, "Ya know them 'ol traps that got that bar that slams down when ya take the cheese? Yea, I run up on 'em take the cheese and when that bar slams down, I grab it and bench press it a hundred or so times."  The second mouse slams his shot and says, "Awww. Hell, that tain't nutin'. I get them Decon pellets, chop 'em up real nice and fine. Line it up and snort it down."  The third mouse, looks at the others and then his watch. Takes his shot, slides off the barstool and heads towards the door. The other two yell at him, "Hey! Where ya goin'?" He replies, "Home to screw the cat."

Love and Craigslist

Now, I'm doing this for a reason. To state my opinions. And, in this adventure, I have posted links to this blog on Cl, and in a few markets somebody decides to flag my posting there. Why, I have no idea, they never say. I have seen people post that they will flag a posting because it doesn't meet their criteria for a post. Like they have a say on the rules of Cl. Someone out there feels the need to police the Internet or a specific site for things that do not interest them, or that offends them, whatever their reasoning. And, for every market on what ever site there are a hundred "Police" for it. I've run across things from time to time that I disagree with, or think is just plain wrong. But, I refuse to try to block any person from saying what they believe to be true. If I was to go into the "Police" mode myself. There are a lot of Cl postings I would flag just for grammar and spelling alone. I found a post a couple of months ago, the guy said that he was going to flag any post that did not include a phone number or a picture of the item described. Goofy, just damn goofy.

Quotes Of Inspiration. 11/16/2010

What if you gave someone a gift and they neglected to thank you for it, would you likely to give them another? Life is the same way. In order to attract more of the blessing that life has to offer, you must appreciate what you already have.

Ralph Marston

If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles.

Doug Larson

Language and Lyrics

I find it interesting how some parents don't like their kids hearing cuss words out right. But, they'll let them listen to songs that use that kind of language, or talk about having sex and stuff of the sort. And, I've noticed that it depends on the style of music the "dirty" lyrics are in. If you put the lyrics in a Metal song it's just totally unacceptable, in a Country or Rap song it is mildly unacceptable (depending on the popularity of the song), put them in a Pop/R&B song and it usually goes by unnoticed. I've seen Rock bands, mainly Heavy Metal, and a few Rap bands in the news for their "suggestive" lyrics. But, I have not saw groups like the Backstreet Boys, Britney, Maroon 5, or hell take your pick really. Just about every artist has a dirty song or two, some are not so obvious, some are very blatant. But, the thing that really gets me, is when you hear momma in the parking lot of Wal-Mart yelling at her kid because he said "Shit!" when he dropped his bubble gum, and then when she drives off you hear a song like "Get Low" from Lil' Jon, or Snoop Dogg singing about smokin a blunt, Fergie talkin about her lovely lady humps, Nine Inch Nails talking about fucking like an animal, or AC/DC talking about "Big Balls". And, even worse are the songs that don't say it directly and the parent's don't see what's wrong with the lyrics. Just makes me laugh.
