  • It's not about Democrat or Republican

    ...Election years are always...if nothing else....somewhat interesting/entertaining so to speak....I mean it always seems both sides are guilty of the mud slinging...the slanted and biased commercials/billboards/radio ads.....the constant finger pointing etc....there is no doubt about the fact it can get a little ugly sometimes on both sides of the fence.....I am not about to even attempt to tell you who to vote for or support or whatever.....I figure that is no one's choice but yours and yours alone.....I will say this to you, hoewver....please...please ...vote......again I have no concern as to who you vote for....write someone in if you don't like the choices....write yourself in if you so desire.....but please go to the polls and cast your vote.....the reason I tell you to do so is quite simple to me....it's the same reason that I will make my journey to the polls on election day......American men and women have sacraficed their lives and have shed blood on many foreign soils in order to defend our right to cast that vote....and that is something that I take very seriously and will never take for granted....and I will never, under any circumstances, throw my right to vote away.....it has been paid for in full many times over.....I do hope you are having a great Thursday! Rick

I do hope you are having a good Wednesday.....I will be out and about alot this weekend so I do hope to see you soon!!! Rick

  • Are you ready to go back to school?

  • .How did they come up with that?

    ...Have you ever wondered about the origins of certain little sayings and phrases we often use?..for example...."rule of thumb"....which is a term derived from 17th century judge Sir Francis Buller..who allegedly ruled that it is ok to assault your wife with a stick, given the stick is no wider than you thumb.......(i couldn't possible make this up)....or "poor as dirt".....which finds it's origins in the fact that when actual wooden floors first started to be constructed for private home use...only the wealthy could afford them...therefore if you were not wealthy you more than likely had a dirt floor.....or how about this one....."dead ringer"....during the latter part of the 19th century race horse owners would often try to fool bookies by bringing two similar horses to the track....one fast and one slow....the owners would run the slower horses for all to see, thus driving up the odds against it....then place bets....and switch them out so the fast horse would actually run the race....hence the fast horse was the "ringer".........I do hope you are having a great Friday and hope to see you out and about this weekend! Rick

  • Let's go to the polls!!!

    .....Our presedential election is right around the corner....and I will definitely be going to vote this November.....I most certainly hope you will too......I don't go because I am a huge supporter of either party....to be honest I agree with the Democrats on some things and the Republicans on others....I would consider myself sort of an independent I guess.......the reason I vote, however, has absolutely nothing to do with my political affiliations.....I vote because of the fact that American men and women have given the ultimate sacrafice so that I may have that right.....to me it's not a matter of who to vote for as much as it is simply exercising my right to do so....a right that has been paid for with the lives of our service men and women......and that is something i will never take lightly. I do hope to see you at the polls in November! Rick

  • Do you have a favorite cartoon character?

    ....late last night while doing my usual up at 3am and cant sleep routine I stumbled across the cartoon network while flipping through channels.....and for a second it broght me back to my childhood and Saturday mornings......there was just something magical and irreplaceable about Saturday mornings when I was a child.....getting up specifically to watch the Saturday morning cartoons....I can recall vividly watching Bugs Bunny......Roadrunner......Yosemite Sam....not to mention Fat Albert and the Gang....and of course all my favorite super heros in action as well.....of course things on Saturday morning are nothing like that any more....i assume....considering I haven't watched Saturday morning cartoons in quite some time.....I have no idea what they are showing now.....but I am quite sure it is nothing like what I recall.....perhaps one of these Saturday mornings I will relive some of my childhood and find out for myself lol.........thank you as always for stopping by...........Rick

  • Have you been watching the Olympics?

    ....I have been doing my best to follow these Olympic games......watching when I can in my down time and in between time.....still a good number of medals up for grabs so the much contested medal race between the United States and China far from over!...was up late last night (whats new lol) watching the semifinals of beach volleyball.....also got to see the finals of the hammer throw and that flat out rocked!.....I wish they would show more of the shot put and hammer throw....anyways as always I do hope you are having a great day! Rick

  • Would you like to create your own reality show?

    ...I will be the first to admit I am no fan of reality television......I just don't understand the appeal to watching people live their lives....I mean I see that every day.....everywhere I go....why do I wanna watch it on tv?....don't get me wrong.....it's not like I watch absolutely nothing rality oriented.....I will admit one of my all time favorite shows is Pawn Stars.......which in a sense is a form of reality tv....I could watch Pawn Stars for several hours at a time....as a matter of fact I have.....What if you could create your own reality show from the ground up?..with no limits.....no boundries....what would you do?.....I always thought a great reality show idea would center itself around the goings ons in and around some small neighborhood pub somewhere....some cheersy kind of place that has a constant flow of reuglars as well as non reguluars who pop in on occasion.....anyone who frequents one of these places knows there is definitely reality television that could easily happen there......i think i am totally onto something!!! but then again,,,i could be way out in left field...who knows lol....anyways I hope you are having a great thursday!!!! Rick

  • do you have a favorite quote?

    ...I can not honestly say i have a favorite quote but I can say that I most definitely have several favorite sources of quotes so to speak......for example Mark Twain......"All you need is ignorance and confidence and the success is sure." or ... "Do the right thing....it will grarify some people and astonish the rest.".......am also a big fan of Frank Sinatra......for example...."alcohol may be man's worst enemy...but the bible says love your enemy."....or "luck is only important in so far as getting the chance to sell yourself at the right moment...after than you've got to have talent and know how to use it.".......and of course the all time classic WC Fields......."A woman drove me to drink and I didnt have the decency to thank her.".....or "hell I never vote for anybody....I vote against.".......I do hope you are having a great wednesday! Rick

  • let's go on vacation!!!

    ......am going to put in for some vacation time soon and am wondering where i should go.....to be honest i have pretty much already made up my mind lol......a good friend of mine has been hitting me up about comming out to see him in Kentucky forever and that definitely sounds like fun!...he informs me there is lots of outstanding bourbon there as well as lots of incredilby hot southern chicks there.......and how on god's green earth can i say no to that???i am only human!!!!....anyways am going to target early Oct......the Olympic Games continuing this week....I have been catching it when i can here and there.....can't wait for the track and field compettion to get under way......I do hope you are having a great Tuesday! Rick

  • YOU CAN NOT BE SERIOUS......

    ...I don't know if you have been catching any of the Olympic Games or not....I have been on and off over the past couple of days...and yesterday I sat in front of my tv and just shook my head.....i was speechless......I think alot of people were......Jordyn Wieber posted the 3d highest score over all in the semifinals gymnastics round....she is the current reigning world champion in all around gymnastics.....Jordyn has dedicated her life...and then some for this moment......and she IS NOT going to be allowed to advance and compete in the finals......why??? because there is a new rule in place that states each country can only advance 2 gymnasts for the final round....and since the 2 scores above Jordyn in the semifinal overall scores where posted by American teamates....she will not be allowed to compete in the finals.........I can not say this enough......THIS IS INSANE......think about this for a second....this would be like telling the Big Twelve that even though they are chalk full of great football teams, they are only allowed to send 2 teams out of the Big Twelve to bowl games........it flat out makes no sense.......the best of the best should compete.....period.........I simply can not believe this is a rule the International Olympic Committee would support and ratify......blows me away. anyways other than that....I do hope you are having a great Monday!!! Rick

Rick

  • I will miss you mr J!

    .....Sherman Helmsly passed away just recently.....maybe you know who that is and maybe you don't.....Sherman played the lead character in the 70's / early 80's sitcom entitled "The Jeffersons".....he was Mr Jefferson......owner of no less than 7 drycleaning establishments and was not too shy about letting you know that......married to his wife Louise....aka Weezy as he woud often call her.....and employer of a quick witted and sassy maid named Florence.....I never really saw the show much when it was on....but i did grow up with it's reruns they would often show in the 80's....and i found the show to be incredibly funny as well as entertaining....there was definitely some controversy surrounding the show considering George Jefferson often came off as someone who was narrow minded and racist to some degree.....but if you really paid attention you would quickly see that the network knew what they were doing all along and definitely did not glorify racism or negativity of that nature by any means whatsoever......instead they mocked it and highlighted how ignorant those types of things will make one look.....not to mention when it really came down to it.....when the day ended.....all in all George Jefferson was....as much as he hated to admit if on occasion.....a straight up good guy....a family man who believed in doing what's right.....some of the quarrels he would have with his neighbors who lived above his penthouse apartment were nothing short of classic.....to this day I still rate him as one of the funnest all time television characters....Mr. J. I hope you rest in peace and thank you for making me laugh often when i needed it most. Rick

  • Let the Games Begin!!!!

    ...We are on the verge of the 2012 Summer Olympics and I can't wait to watch!!!!.....I guess what I have always loved about the Olympics isn't the games themselves so much....it's the incredible stories behind the people who compete.......people who have worked tirelessly and dedicated their lives to this moment.....people from California....NY......Michigan......Texas......and all points in between who come together for these two weeks and proudly represent us.....peoplle like 23 year old Nathan Adrian....who likes to jet ski and ride dirt bikes in his spare time....he is currently studying public health at the University of California and plans to eventually become a doctor....he will represent us in the 2012 Summer Games by swimming the men's 100m freestyle...men's 4 x 100 freestyle relay....and the men's 4 x 100 medley relay.....How about 37 year old Amy Acuff....whose husband is Tye Harvey (a silver medal winner in the 2001 World Indoor Championships...he won it pole vaulting)....she will be competing in the women's high jump....she will be doing what she can to put her home town (Port Arthur) on the map....Howard Bach....born in Saigon....but grew up in the United States....33 years old.....currently works in sales.....he will be representing us as part of the United States badminton doubles team......these types of stories ae abundent when it comes to the Summer Games........I will definitely be keeping my eye on it!!! thanks for stopping by.............Rick

  • Would you be a professional wrestler for one day?

    ...If you could be any pro wrestler in the world for just one day.....who would you choose to be?...would you be John Cena?.....CM Punk?.....The Miz?.....maybe you would be a diva for a day.....I would be tempted to do so just so i could get into the diva locker room!!!.....Maybe you would be the Undertaker and be him during Wresltemania...that would rock!....maybe you would be the high flying Ray Mysterio....whoever you would be, you have to admit it would be fun to do so for just one day...just one match......I hope you are having an outstanding Tuesday!

  • Lots of things happen in just a couple days!

    ...Over the past couple three days lots of things have happened!.....of course the one thing that has been all over the news is the theatre shooting in Colorado....my heart goes out to the victims and their families.....I will never understand what it is that motivates people to do these types of things... earlier today on FB i saw a comment that made me think for a minute.....and it was a simple comment in which someone was expressing how they saw the suspect who allegedly commited this atrocious act....they saw a picture of him taken when he was in court...they said the picture actually scared them because he simply had a look about him that scared them....and it made me think for a second as to whether or not it would have the same effect on me......and I then immediately thought......NO.....not in the least......whoever would commit an act of that nature is not someone to fear......instead that person is an absolute coward who chose to attack and kill innocent unarmed men women and children in order to get headlines....that person is a waste of space as far as i am concerned.....and is not worthy of my fear.....on another note I see they have taken down the Joe Paterno statue that was once outside of Beaver Stadium and have moved it inside of the stadium....the NCAA also announced sanctions on the Penn State program today and they were definitely harsh sanctions....no once can say they went easy on them that's for sure.....I do feel sorry for the student athletes that have competed as Penn State football players and had nothing at all to do with anything even remotely related to this scandal....when these types of things happen i not only think about the pain and suffering of the victims (which is unimaginable) but I also think of the negative and harmful effects it has on the innocent bystanders including those student athletes...what happened was beyond horrible and can not be forgotten...i hope and pray we learn from it and take measures to see that it doesn't happen again....Todd N Tyler in town this weekend!!!!!!!! hey thanks for stopping by............Rick

  • Are you ready for some football?
