Been There, Done That

 I have something here from another friend that just goes to show you that there are actually people who read here, and there  are some who actually "get it". This was sent by my good friend in the East. Thanks, and keep sending me things, who knows, it just might get put right here, where millions of people can ignore it


Rules for the phone.

How ALL business phones SHOULD be answered!


Press "1" for English.

Press "2" to disconnect until you learn to speak English

And remember only two defining forces have ever
offered to die for you,

Jesus Christ

and the American Soldier.

One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

The Legend of 10,000!

 First off, let me just say that we finally got to 10,000 hits here. That means that BOTH of my fans have been very busy, indeed!!! I can't believe it! Ten Thousand hits! Someone out there must be reading this. I hope they get something out of it. I hate to say it, but I think that my writing has suffered from my lack of drinking. Seems drinking and diabetes just don't mix. Some things in life really suck...and I even gave up smoking three years ago! I keep giving up shit, and I seem to get worse. A youth mis-spent, I guess.


             I would also like to pass on something from a friend of mine. It seems like a good idea to me, except that I will never carry a cell phone. It's just a wierd quirk of mine, I suppose. Anyway, here is the article as sent to me. Thanks go to M'Lady, you know who you are.

In Case of Emergency

Isn't it  true  that  we  all  carry  our  mobile phones with hundreds of names/numbers  stored  in  its memory but yet nobody, other than ourselves, know which of these numbers belong to our near and dear ones?

Let us for a moment create a scenario wherein (God forbid):

We  are  involved  in  an accident  or  had  a heart attack and the people attending  us get hold of our mobile phone but don't know which number to call  to  inform  our  family members.  
Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency?

For  this  reason,  we must have one or more telephone numbers stored under the name ICE (In case of Emergency) in our mobile phones.

Read below for more details......

Recently,  the  concept of  "ICE" is catching up quickly. It is simple, an important method of contact during emergency situations.

As  cell  phones are carried by majority of the population, all you need to do is store the number of a contact person or person who should be
contacted at during emergency as "ICE" (meaning In Case of Emergency).

The idea was
thought up by a paramedic who found that when they went to the scenes of accidents, there were always mobile phones with patients, but they didn't know which number to call.

He therefore thought that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognized name for this purpose.

Following a disaster in London , the East Anglican Ambulance Service has launched a national "In case of Emergency (ICE)" campaign.

In  an  emergency situation, Emergency Service personnel and hospital staff
would  then  be able to quickly contact your next of kin, by simply dialing the number stored as "ICE".

Please  f orward this. It won't take too many "forwards" before every body will know about this.

It really could save your life, or put a loved one's mind at rest.

For more than one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2 and ICE3 etc.

A great idea that will make a difference!

Let's spread the concept of ICE by storing an ICE number in our mobile phones today!

Please forward to your all nearest and dearest.

The Magic of Dragons

Ahhh, the magic of Dragons. Anyone who knows anything about me knows that I love Harleys and Dragons. If you have ever seen a Harley equipped with "shorty" pipes, and running at night, you would see the resemblance between the two. Believe me, a Harley at sixty miles an hour on the road will spit just as much fire as any Dragon!


           And look at the form of a Harley, namely the Sportster model. Long, low, intense looking. Ready for action, a coiled spring waiting to be released...a Dragon in anyone's book. Fire it up, twist the throttle, and let out the clutch. Pure, raw, unadulterated power. Could any Dragon be louder than those shorty pipes? I doubt it.


            A thing of pure legend; this describes the Harley as well as the Dragon. Yes, I think they are one and the same. One species divided only by the sands of time. One living hundreds of years ago, and one living in the present realm. I long for the old days, when I was free. A few beers, a joint, and a long ride in the country on my "Dragon". What could be better?

The Law is Very Clear

 Ahem, excuse me, have you been following this crap about Anna Nicole Smith? It is just scandalous. Fighting over a dead woman's body. I could understand fighting over the little girl of hers, whoever holds the child holds the fortune. Money makes some people do some sad things. Let me tell you a story...


         Just over two years ago when my mother was killed, I was notified by the Missouri State Police of her demise. I spoke to the people at the hospital where she was, and was told that I would have to decide to pull the plug on her. I didn't want to do this as I see it as very bad Karma. I told the hospital staff that my Grandmother was still alive, and it should be her decision, as it was her mother. I thought she would have more right to this decision than I would. I was wrong.


          I was informed that the law is very clear in these matters. "Next of kin" goes like this; Spouse, child, parent, sibling, grandparent, Uncle or Aunt. And after that, I forget. Now, if the law was so clear in our case, why not Ms. Smith's? The man who wants her body is NOT a spouse. Her(Ms. Smith) son died a few months  back, and her mother is the next in line...the law is clear. What is wrong here? I have an idea....oh, come on, you expected it!


             Everyone these days will do anything to get their "15 minutes" of fame. Even the stupid-ass judges in this matter know that the laws for this kind of thing are cut and dried. The mother gets the body, plain  and simple. The things that people in our society will try to pull off these days are just ridiculous. I blame the "Twinkie Defense" from years ago. You remember the case where some asshole killed someone, and his lawyer said it was the sugar from all the "junk food" that he ate? He said that the sugar made his client crazy. Hey, I like Twinkies as much as the next guy, but I don't eat a bunch of them, and then say, "well, who can I kill"? It's bullshit, just a bunch of crap!


            So, in the following weeks, this case of Ms. Smith will get worse. I just can't wait to see what comes from the lawyers in the coming weeks. But try to remember that a soul has been lost in the world. Was she a good soul?Who knows, it isn't up to us to judge her, and it certainly isn't up to others to fight over her lifeless body. The entire race of Humans has been shamed, once again. Can we really be this bad?

The Only Rat I Like

 I may have mentioned somewhere here before that I hate rats. Not the little four-legged kind...the kind of rat that gets people killed, the kind that talks too much. Those kinds of "rats" don't even deserve to live. But, I AM A RAT myself...a PACKRAT that is! I keep things that other people would just throw out.


            I am sure that I may have mentioned that my wife works for the Salvation Army. She has access to the sort of junk that would send a packrat like myself into cardiac arrest if we could just have her job. It falls to my wife to sometimes work in the  back of the store, sorting things to sell or to throw out. I could never do her job. My car would barely make it home every night!! It would be so loaded down with junk that the tires would be flat!


            Thank goodness for people like my wife. People who can actually throw something away, and have it leave their hand! I could never do it! I own one of those big standing tool boxes, you know the kind. Big, red, full of tools, weighs many hundreds of pounds. I nearly cried when I finally cleaned it out once, and actually threw things away that I had amassed from twenty years of collecting. I will never go through that kind of trauma again!

Service, or Lack Thereof

I have a problem, and if I have this problem, then you just might suffer from the same thing. I am talking about the lack of service that businesses are providing nowadays. Have you been to Wal-Mart lately? Did ya get to bag your own items? Get to use that little round carousel deal that they have? Did you get home and find that you had forgotten items at the store? Well, I know where your items are...right back on the shelf to be sold a second, maybe even third time!


           That's right, Wal-Mart's latest scam for stealing from it's customers. But wait, great DragonMaster, simply go back and tell them you forgot your items, and everything will be put right! Oh ye of such faith! Wal-Mart employees will swear that you left with the items, and they were not left on the check-out stand. You are simply out the money that you spent, the store benefitting from this little scam of their's.


            But wait, there is more! Ever try to find someone who actually WORKS at Wal-Mart? You see them everywhere when you are walking around, but try to find one to help you, and they disappear! If you DO MANAGE to find one, they almost always say, "sorry, I don't work in that department". Wal-Mart has even installed product "scanners" everywhere so you can find out the prices of things on your own...Heaven forbid someone in the store would actually mark a price on something!


              Need to check out? Well, now you can do it yourself! And Wal-Mart isn't the only place doing that, either! What is with the lack of service in all of the stores these days? What the fuck are the "associates"(not employees) paid to do? Show up and give the customers a hard time? We should not stand for this sort of thing! We should stand up and fight back! The next time you are in Wal-Mart, go to the "housewares" section and set all of the wind up clocks you can find to alarm  all at the same time! Stand around in the meats section of the grocery aisles and proclaim loudly, "what stinks"? Give them as much trouble as they give us!

Still Slow and Cold

Well, things are still slow around here. Wife went to get our car back from the shop. It's funny how it took a week to do a job that the book gives two hours for? The dealer said that their Nissan guy was out with pnuemonia. I guess the biggest dealer of Nissans for 100 miles around has only ONE NISSAN MECHANIC? Oh well, shit happens.


           There was sleet and rain this morning, mixed together. Some of the bridges were slightly frozen over, but no big deal. There were, however, several wrecks within just a few miles of my home. Go figure! Half of these assholes can't drive on snow and ice, and the other half just stay at home. I used to drive 25 miles to work one way, and have seen it snow just a few inches, and I would be the only one to show up at work!


            On a lighter note I still have my granddaughter get off the school bus everyday at my house. She has learned a new game that she and my youngest daughter play nearly every day. You hook up these "dance pads" to the Playstation 2, and dance to the music in the game. You have to place your feet in the right squares on the mats in rythm to the game music. I have watched them, and don't see how they do it.


            Saddam Hussien was hanged on December 31, 2006. I didn't say anything about it here, because he didn't deserve to be mentioned, even in this little spot of the internet that hardly anyone reads. I don't believe in taking a person's life, but if anyone ever deserved it....well, you get the idea.


           This just in! Anna Nicole Smith died yesterday. Shit, 39 years old, and just collapsed! Now, don't get me wrong, I didn't know her personally, or anything, but only 39 years old, and just died? I am sure the conspiracy nuts will have a field day with that one. On a belated note, one of my favorite actors of all time died last July, and I only found out recently. He was a Japanese actor named Mako. He was great as a bad guy in movies, but equally as good as a good guy. Now that is talent.  'Till next time...

    Well, finally some snow! It was only about two inches, but it looked nice. For the most part, it has melted as of this afternoon. It started snowing about nine p.m. last night, and was still going at around three a.m. this morning when I finally turned in.


         It is nice to have a little snow in winter. I love to just sit and watch it come down, especially at night. On the homefront news, our car is at the dealer's shop. Seems that it threw some of the oil pan gasket, along with the front crank seal. Such is the nature of the mechanical beast!
