I'm looking for my hammer today. It was my Grandfather's hammer, and sat in a little basket under the edge of Grandma's kitchen counter for generations. When they both passed, I inherited the basket which has been in the top right hand drawer of my utility room for at least 12yrs. Where in the hell … Continue reading Tools ~ Do NOT Touch My Outlined Pegboard.
In my constant struggle to get what I want but not break the bank, I searched for a solution to the window problem for our new utility room. The utility room was the bane of my existence. With the B&B busy all the time, I was responsible for about 80 loads of laundry every week … Continue reading But….. I’m not paying $1700 for a window.
The day before, it was 74 degrees. Gorgeous spring day, daffodils popping. I had a 5yr life plan and it was working. I was happy. That night, the temps dropped to 23 degrees and an unexpected Ice Storm formed over the Mid-South. We were blind-sided. Mother Nature wanted to see just how adaptable we could … Continue reading A Lesson in Self-Reliance = The Ice Storm of ’94
Britt was always complaining she never had any money. It was, perhaps, her only flaw. I found it odd because her husband I both followed the market and invested. He had a good job but often traveled leaving Britt alone with the kids. To make a long story short, her kids ate at my house … Continue reading You’re Going to Jail for Writing Bad Checks.
The photo above, according to my girlfriend, was a pediatric prescription from 1962. Whiskey for the baby? Maybe a little more for moms and dads? We all have family remedies. Chicken soup, Vick's on a Scarf + heating pad on chest, double up on the Vitamin C, all kinds of teas and herbs..... depending on … Continue reading Feed the Cold or Starve the Cold? What about the Fever?

Warning**** The vitamins jump out of this soup. 5lbs of Ribeyes, trimmed up, cubed into 1/2"x1", coarse. Heaping TBS of garlic, scant 1/4 of Worcestershire, 1-2tsps of fresh-cracked black pepper, cook in large heavy weight … Continue reading Ready for Snow!
I am absolutely fascinated by what happened to Gamestop, Blackberry, and AMC theater stock yesterday. This is clever beyond measure. A war against the Hedgefunds like we've never seen before. What do you guys think? A small community of Reddit users drove the stock price up to blazing levels, hitting those who shorted the stock … Continue reading Gamestop Stock: Don’t ever mess with the Nerds.
Once one's eyes are opened, it is impossible to not see. If we believed American media today, we would assume all men are weak and docile, black women are all powerful, and half the country are terrorists. It's beyond ridiculous and it was time for me to tune out. But what happens when we tune … Continue reading What to do when the Media is no longer real….. ?

Rarely would we ever call attention to an hour long video. We understand, in today’s world of 240-character Twitter, inflammatory click bait headlines, and snarky pundit soundbites, almost none of us are compelled to watch anything for 60 minutes. This presentation, however, is worth your time. Joshua Phillip of Epoch Times, along with his team, … Continue reading 20200412: Origins of the CCP Virus from Wuhan, China.
