The Big 20…0!

I don’t even feel like a day, or follower, over 199! Thanks to my 200 follwer Janet for pointing out the fact I just reached this mark. I can’t imagine anyone other than my dogs, and cats, and a few other beer guzzling, finger pulling, catfishing friends reading anything I write.

I know I ain’t the greatest writer in the trailerhood, but I have to have a tap to open and let the voices out. So thanks to all who follow, and I do try to get around and visit all of your sites. Most times, I get wrapped up reading so much on a few blogs, I find that I only vist a couple each day. But hey, I have all summer off to catch up….well, in between beer benders, and golf. 🙂

God Bless

The Government Tellin’ Me To Go Green? I Tell’em To Go To…..

The only green I am going is either the stuff that I get when I cash my check, or the stuff in my Red Solo Cup on st. Paddy’s Day!

America is the baddest ass nation the galaxy has ever known. Folks envy us so much, they break in! And then they use our laws to keep their free loading rears here! There are other great folks, who are willing to follow the rules, stand in line for years, just to be citizens.

And what has helped make us so wonderful you ask? Well it sure ain’t wind, solar, and butterfly power. It is good old fashion fossil fuels. Thank God that he allows dead plants and animals to turn into energy! That’s right. I put Dino and Barney in all my gas tanks. Yabba Fabba Doo, I love you crude!

This stuff, along with coal, and natural gas, has helped us kick every enemies ass, create the best medical facilities on the planet, the best food-producing industry ever, and it put friggin’ dudes on the moon. I sure did not see a solar panel, or wind mill, during any of the Lunar landings.

And now it is a fact, we have enough natural gas, to get us by for another couple of centuries, along with shale, and coal. And technology has advanced to the point that all this stuff is safe. Of course, some dirt and plants might be displaced, but I believe our current quality of life out weighs any of these minor disturbances.

Of course, this does not sit well for the folks who think that Waldon Pond should be a model to re-build our nation around. Even Emerson figured out that “That dog don’t hunt.”

Friday: Day 8 Of Spring Break

The only thing that moves faster than a vacation day, is a bad fish burrito through my boiler! As you may have figured, my Thursday was pretty much scuttled by the tragic event in my Hillbilly-hood that locked down traffic, and the on again, off again rains.

So the plan of attack today is to gas up the truck,throw the sticks in the bed, and head for the driving range. I will have to plan this like the D-Day invasion though: there is a small window of opportunity due to the fact that thunder/rain storms are passing through. I think that for every day of bad weather during vacation, my employer should credit me with a replacement day! Right, fat chance of that happening. If I get rained out from the golf range, I can always fall back on my plan B: Happy hour at Marcella’s,Happy hour at Shooter’s, and Happy hour at Applebees’. Wait, that is only 3-hours:)

I would also like to say hello to a new friend of mine: 68ghia. All the way from the beautiful country of RSA. The blog is I also did some blog surfing, and found some blogs with tremendous pics of the country. No wonder my favorite golfer is from South Africa!

Blogging On Sunday Because Monday Is A Fun Day

Yup, I usually keep to the back yard and local watering holes on the weekends, but this coming wee is a bit different from the norm. My golf team, and the rest of the league is headed to a really nice golf course just outside of Antioch California: Roddy Ranch G.C. It is built-in and around a working cattle ranch. It is a links style course to boot! In my golfing world, links means wide open fairways!

So The Hillbilly is breaking routine today. No beers, or back yard shenanigans. Instead, 3 good hours of practice the range, and a wee bit of blogging to make up for Monday, which is normally a big blog day for me.

I am hoping the weather will cooperate. We had a big rain storm blow through my town, and it looks as though it hit Roddy Ranch pretty good also. Yup, just my luck, an hour ride in the van to the course, get rained out, and another hour back to school/work. I only have 8 working days til Easter Break with a golf tourney and 3 matches mixed in. Man, the life of an educated, golf playin’ Hillbilly is rough! 🙂

One Good Reason Not To Pick Mitt Romney

This is a no-brainer. Jeb Bush endorses Mitt. Well, Jeb Bush ain’t conservative, his daddy ain’t conservative, and his grandpappy ain’t conservative. Well, Jeb is a country club RHINO, his daddy is a country club RHINO, and his grand pappy is a country club RHINO. So why in the world is it so important to get his slap on the back? I see the Huffo Post reported it, and that is a major clue for ya.

It won’t be Mitt vs. Twit in 2012. It will be Bush jr vs. Twit 08 redux! Barry has no chance if he runs on his record. He has a great chance if he runs,once again, against Bush. The TOTUS already has the info locked and loaded. Barry knows that he has a base of voters that are mooches and statist. He only needs to fool/guilt the white, self loathing crowd one more time. And Lord knows that ain’t hard to do.

It is sad that Mitt does not do more to distance himself from the GOP in crowd. He is a great family, and business man, and he lives his faith.


Earthquake Japan: Western US Next

Geez, another quake and just a few days past the one year anniversary of the “big” one. I hate to say it, but this Hillbilly is predicting a large quake here along the Western Coast of the US in the next year. If I remember my geology class from college, when pressure is relieved in one area, it builds in another. My prayers are with these people.

A 6.8 magnitude earthquake rocked northeastern Japan today, causing the Japanese Meteorological Agency to issue a tsunami warning. It struck about 170 miles off the east coast. A spokesman for Tohoku Electric Power, which operates two nuclear power plants in the area, said they were unaffected.

The quake comes just three days after the one-year anniversary of that disaster, and on Sunday the cities of Japan were silent as families remembered the losses suffered in the disaster. Last year Google used their Street View cars to compile before and after pictures of the areas struck by the tsunami, and the results were staggering. As a good many people affected are still trying to pick up the pieces in the aftermath, many here in the states and beyond are offering prayers and thoughts to Japan.

Shh…(CERN Proves Global Warming Natural, But Don’t Say So) (via )

Shh...(CERN Proves Global Warming Natural, But Don't Say So) Global warming is now proven natural, not manmade. Experiments at CERN published in Nature have traced earth's surface temperature to cosmic radiation and the Sun. "New, Convincing Evidence Indicates Global Warming Is Caused By Cosmic RAys and the Sun–Not Humans" will bring you up to date on the science. Unfortunately as the article also tells, the politics of global warming are still in play, so much so that the managers at Cern forced the scie … Read More
