You saw the Dwalt Nail Gun for the guys – thanks to Meg, this one here is for the ladies! Pocket Taser Stun Gun, a great gift for the wife.  A guy who purchased his lovely wife a pocket Taser for their anniversary submitted this: Last weekend I saw something at Larry’s Pistol & Pawn Shop that sparked my interest.  The occasion was our 15th anniversary and I was looking for a little something extra for my wife Julie.  What I came across was a 100,000 volt, pocket/purse sized taser.  The effects......

Perhaps I spoke to soon last week, it appears that I’m not really in the clear yet. Although the ear, nose, and throat issues have faded into history, the cough persists. It wouldn’t be so bad I suppose, but when I cough I produce “red stuff” that seems highly unnatural. Went back to the Dr. this morning  and finally got in to see my family doctor, first week was some Dr. at Urgent Care (said it was a virus), then last week my Dr. wasn’t available so her colleague (said whooping cough)......

This has now moved to the top of my 2008 Christmas Wish List! A new Nail Gun, made by Dewalt, has just been introduced. It can drive a 16-D nail through a 2 X 4 at 200 yards. This makes construction a breeze, you can sit in your lawn chair and build a fence. Just get your wife to hold the fence boards in place while you sit back, relax with a cold drink and when she has the board in the right place, just fire away. With the hundred round magazine,......

….. were greatly exaggerated! I was really only ever almost-dead (see ref) and am now certainly only nearly dead! Last week, I had a virus which turned into something more this week. For those who may not have heard, the Dr. proposed I either have Whooping Cough or Pneumonia, either of which we were in the very early stages of and the same antibiotic would take care of. To that end, I’m three days into a full course of the antibiotic (well, this afternoon will mark the fourth day) and certainly appear......

Jodi and I were talking about redneck jokes the other day, and got onto the topic of this list. Tracey said she hadn’t seen/heard of this take on the classic jokes before, and asked me to send ‘em out. You might be a redneck if: · It never occurred to you to be offended by the phrase, ‘One nation, under God.’       · You’ve never protested about seeing the 10 Commandments posted in public places. · You still say ‘ Christmas’ instead of ‘Winter Festival.’ · You bow your head when someone prays.......

NASCAR & Rednecks Thanks to Tommy picking up the tab, Tracey and I attended our first ever NASCAR race this past weekend! It was down right fun! Not that I’ll be doing it again anytime soon though. The whole ordeal of “getting to the race” and then “getting away from the race” just didn’t balance out with the “fun of the race” – if ya know what I mean. Let me put it another way, I didn’t get to bed till 3:00am and I’m typically asleep between 9:00 and 10:00pm. We have......

THE OLD VERSION The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away. Come winter, the ant is warm and well-fed. The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold. MORAL OF THE STORY: Be responsible for yourself! THE NEW VERSION The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies......

Here’s a post Tommy made as part of a conversation on a message board.  It pretty much summed up my position so I thought I’d share: I was on the fence for a while after ole huckleberry dropped out of the race, I really liked him a lot. I was astounded with the choice of Palin and ended up watching her speech twice. Then I downloaded it and played it on the big screen for the rest of the family. I’ve been noticing a trend lately of overly aggressive democrats just getting......

To the citizens of the United States of America from Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II In light of your failure in recent years to nominate competent candidates for President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately. (You should look up ‘revocation’ in the Oxford English Dictionary.) Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths, and territories (except Kansas, which she does not fancy). Your new Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, will appoint a......

The US bailout and the problems recently experienced by banks in Europe has now spread to Japan. In the last seven days Origami Bank has folded, Sumo Bank has gone belly, up and Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut some of its branches. On Monday it was announced that Karaoke Bank is up for sale, and it’s thought likely to go for a song, while shares in Kamikaze Bank were suspended after they nose-dived. Samurai Bank is soldiering on following sharp cutbacks, and Ninja Bank is reported to have taken a hit,......
