So recently I was informed that I’ve got what the old timers used to refer to as “The Sugar Diabetes”. As a result, in an effort to cut down on my carbs, or as we call them in our house carbonhydrates…because it is fun…I have totally eliminated white bread and other white flour products from […]

The “Mighty Hunters”…and me

Tree stand

Let me tell you how my son’s first deer hunt went. I want to warn you that our guide for the day, fellow blogger John Floyd, and my son William will try to tell you something different. Let me assure you that everything I am about to tell you is entirely accurate. I swear it’s […]

I will admit that I have a hard time reading legal jargon, and proposed laws. Question 3 that will be on Maine’s ballot this November is written pretty clearly, and I have read it a few times. I admit that what it does say tends to get lost in translation for me in a few […]

There has been another horrible shooting. This time in Florida. The “Gun Nuts” are blaming Islamic terrorists. The “Gun Grabbers” are blaming The NRA. Am I the only person blaming a crazy guy with a gun? Because it feels like I am. One thing is certain. If I had to choose a side, I would […]

Worried about tick-borne illnesses? Get ticks tested for free!

Many of you know that I am not a big fan of ticks. They have literally prevented me from enjoying outings in the woods. I rarely venture out of my chicken patrolled yard. I hate ticks. I think we should use DDT for a number of years to reduce ticks, and many other insects that […]

Microsoft phone scam alert.

Hey folks! I got a call today from somebody with an accent that indicated he did not grow up in America with English-speaking parents. He told me he was from Microsoft, and was calling me about my Windows account. He seemed to have some difficulty hearing me, as he kept saying “Hello? Hello, are you […]

A gorilla is dead, but a child is alive.

By now we have all heard about the tragic incident at the Cincinnati Zoo, where a four-year old boy managed to slip past his parents, and into a gorilla enclosure, leading to an encounter with the gorilla that left the gorilla dead, and the boy injured. There has been a lot of mud-slinging back and […]
