You can lead your chickens to grain…But you cant make them peck!

Chickens! I’ve had them since 2009, and somehow they always seem to find a way to make me scratch my head in disbelief. My chickens are free range. Their primary mission at my house is insect control. Based on some of the comments that were left by readers of past blogs concerning ticks, some of […]

Florida cop sets A PERFECT example of how to get fired for exercising your freedom of speech

Not long ago I wrote a blog in support of Coach York of Skowhegan.  On his personal facebook page, he shared a picture of his souvenir “scalp cloth” from the ancient times in the 1980’s where people were a little less sensitive, and in my opinion, a little more fun. Somebody in his contact group shared […]

Tragic shooting in Bath causes undue fear over the new “Constitutional Carry” law

Late Monday afternoon, 22-year-old Chelsea Jones, of Thomaston was accidentally shot in the back of the head, by her boyfriend 23-year-old Dylan Grubbs. Mr. Grubbs had gone to a parking lot in Bath to meet a prospective buyer for his handgun. Unfortunately, the weapon was loaded, and it discharged. This is a very sad accident. […]

Are you in the Holiday spirit? Care to share some firewood?

We’ve been lucky so far this year, and the cold air has stayed away.  We all know that wont last long. It is going to get cold…VERY cold, and many Mainers, myself included will have a rough time making sure the furnace has oil, the pellet stove has pellets, or the wood stoves have wood. […]

Shooting dogs…You do what you have to do!

I’m not going to earn any new friends from this post. Let’s face it, people shooting dogs, or any other pets are considered monsters. I’m serious! Watch a violent movie filled with gruesome scenes of blood and gore, then in the middle of all the violence let the scene change to a happy one, with […]

CHRISTMAS! Can you say “B-a-a-a-a-ah!”?

I often write stories about my three goats, ‘Smeck’, ‘Kramer’, and ‘Billy’. Today, I am going to write about sheep. These sheep are all around us! These are the people who have been sucked into the commercial aspect of Christmas! When I was a kid growing up in the 70’s, people used to get paid […]

Frost on the INSIDE of your windshield? Try this!

My wife’s logic says if you are trying to heat, or cool your vehicle quickly, it makes more sense to recycle the air inside the car, rather than trying to heat or cool the air from outside. So she uses the recirculation setting on the air conditioner. I have to admit, the logic appears to […]

Personal jetpacks a reality?

http://www.msn.com/en-us/video/wonder/men-in-jetpacks-chase-airbus-a380-over-dubai/vi-CC201k It has finally happened! Two dudes, Yves Rossi and Vince Reffet have been cruising around on their own jet packs! Recently they launched from a helicopter in Dubai to fly alongside The Emirates A380, the world’s largest passenger aircraft. They cruised along at 5,500 feet, roughly 1,500 feet above the passenger plane, conducting some […]

Super simple cure for hiccups!

Everybody knows a cure for hiccups… Stand on your head and drink something…Breathe into a paper bag…Have somebody scare you…Hold your breath till you pass out, and when you come to four hours later, they will be gone! NONSENSE I SAY! I HAVE THE SOLUTION! It has worked 100% of the time on 100% of […]

Ticks are destroying my love for the woods!

Ticks!  I hate them!  Vile little critters.  They crawl up your body looking for a cozy place to dig in and sip your blood.  You might feel them crawling along, but when you scratch, they flatten themselves out, and you pass right over them! It used to be that you could go into the woods every […]
