Howdy friends and neighbors.  I hope Christmas found everyone well this year and that the new opportunities of 2009 are ready to spring.  As always, Christmas was better to me that I was to it.  As I tried to find some last minute gifts, all I seemed to see was aisle after aisle a useless junk!  Thus, I would like to share with you a gift I received made from junk that meant the world to me.

The Manger

      Howdy friends and neighbors.  Why a manger?  I never gave a manger much thought until this year.  Have you ever thought about the significance of animals in the life of Jesus?  He was born in a manger, and then carried into the town of Jerusalem on a donkey. (more…)

Howdy Friends and Neighbors:  Just one quick jab at D.C.  Last week I caught about thirty seconds on the congressional hearing with the “Big Three” automakers.  It was just enough to give me a good laugh.  Senators were wearing out the auto CEOs over being bad money managers!  To quote my grandma, “that’s the pot calling the kettle black.”  No, mister senator, they manufacture cars and own automobile factories, not a money printing press.

Howdy friends and neighbors.  I missed ya last week.  Sorry, I was a bit under the weather and my nose was running so much that I was afraid that I might ruin the keyboard.


Man, where does a guy start this time?  So much entertainment out in this old world lately and I only have limited space.


First, let’s laugh about the goings on in DC.  A few weeks back I quoted Will Rogers as he talked about life in the 20’s and 30’s.  He said, “America is the only country in which we can drive ourselves to the poor house in automobile.”  I attempted to modernize his quote, but all I need to do is just sit back and let the US Government write the jokes, then just put their actions in print.  I now have a 21st century quote to follow up on Will’s.  “America is the only county in which CEO’s can fly themselves to the poor house in a Gulfstream private jet!”  Again, the all so dramatic “bail out” news is so bad that it is somewhat hilarious to watch.  Our nation has created bread and soup lines once again.  Only the line is forming at the steps of Congress and corporate CEO’s are lining up to get their handout.  Once they fill their cup, it’s back on the private jet to renegotiate their bonus.
