Cabela’s, where America shops for things to slay other things with.
“I woke up this mornin’ feelin’ like a penny waitin’ on change.”
Do people with large calves have to pay extra to have a decorative band tattooed around it?
The final day of the 2011 Heritage Bluesfest was threatened by rain but by the time the major acts were due to appear the rain clouds had passed, the cooling breeze picked up and the thermometer dropped a few notches.
The day’s performers of note included a group called Southern Hospitality, Kenny Neal, and the star of stars in the world of blues, Buddy Guy.
Turns out, Southern Hospitality was a brand new incarnation of Continue reading Wheeling Heritage Bluesfest, Day Three, 2011
GOP presidential candidate, Jon Huntsman, is considered by many to be a RINO (Republican in name only). He’s being attacked by the most vocal in his party as being too informed, too reasonable, and too trusting in science. To me he sounds like an educated person. Where did we reach the place where being all of this became a political liability?
Every year about this time we hear in rural America are overwhelmed with fresh tomatoes, zucchini, and summer squash. About everyone who planted these veggies in the spring now have far more than they can use and are begging others to take them off their hands.
Sally Turner Kennedy has a suggested and tried recipe on her blog, North Coast Muse, that makes use of some of these abundant and often FREE delights.
Frequently when discussing the distribution of wealth in America a conservative will employ the phrase, “class warfare.” They argue that liberals and the liberal media are trying to drive a wedge between the haves and have-nots that will somehow lead to a forced redistribution of wealth at the hands of government.

Looking for new opportunities to Continue reading Southern State Offering Three New Degrees
There may have been a time when every American city had a place like The Strip in Pittsburgh. Cincinnati still has Findlay Market, Columbus has North Market, Charleston, SC its City Market, and New Orleans’s French Market is still going strong.
These are areas of a city where vendors of all sizes and flavors seem to assemble to participate in Continue reading A Few Hours on Pittsburgh’s Strip
A new scientific study estimates there are 8.7 million species on the earth and only about 14% have been identified. You know, we humans really don’t know everything.
How ironic is a huge replica of the Statue of Liberty perched on top of a liquor store? Liquor, the en-slaver of millions, Miss Liberty, the embodiment of freedom.
I’m not going to claim any historical or medical accuracy for some of the things I’m about to say but it seems to me that regarding women and childbirth, things started getting a little crazy back in the 60s.
Remember the dawn of the “natural” child-birth era when women, along with their husbands, were expected to jointly attend child-birth classes where the expectant mother learned to properly breath while the husband mastered techniques of Continue reading Placenta Jerky! WTF?
Why do fat guys with no muscle definition wear sleeveless t-shirts?
