Game Camera Recommendations? Bumped to the top scroll down for new posts

Hi all,

I'm looking for a decent, not too expensive, easy to use game cam. One that will do night shots and can be left for a week or so. I have no previous experience with them so I would have to be one that would be good for a noobie. Also, where is the best place to shop on-line for them?

Thanks in advance,

I imagine you're tired of this subject, but I know a lot of people are furious that you guys aren't in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. How do you feel about it?
Honestly, we really, really don't care about it. It's someone's thing, and they can do whatever they want with it. They can have whomever they like. It's their thing.
It's a little bit different here in Canada. We've received awards that mean an awful lot more to us than being in the Hall of Fame. We got the Governor General's Performing Arts Award a couple weeks ago. That's really the highest accolade you can get in this country for the performing arts, and it's recognized nationally, and I felt so proud as a Canadian to be in this esteemed group of artists that have been there for the last 20 years.


Hey Wirecutter, I'll See Your Bacon Bloody Mary and Raise You THIS One..

Here is  Wirecutter's bloody >HERE<

And now...Just in time for the weekend... Behold "The Bloody Best"

 So let’s just get into this thing, shall we. What you’re dealing with here is a 16-ounce Bloody served with one skewer of steak and tater tots, another with peppers and blue-cheese-stuffed olives, and then rimmed with a hard-boiled egg and a piece of toast. Then they put a stick of bacon in it. And then a motherf***ing beef straw.

It’s brunch in a glass. It’s the liquid equivalent of taking two defibrillation paddles to the chest. And most importantly, it’s real.

Real ridiculous, but who cares.

While most Americans go about their rat-race lives and focus on being entertained by an endless stream of sports and imaginary lives on silver screen and monitor, insidious threats creep ever closer.
Most will not believe what I’m about to write. Many will deny that our property rights are under attack regardless of the proof surrounding us online – even though they could confirm it for themselves – IF they only would.

What threats, you say? Believe it – or not:



The Store Front......

Obama and Biden are in New York. They are standing around and taking a break in their soon-to-be new Obama merchandise store. 

As yet, the store wasn't ready, and didn't even have the shelves set up.
One said to the other,
"I bet any minute now some stupid Irishman is going to walk by, put his face to the window, and ask what we're selling." 
No sooner were the words out of his mouth when, sure enough, a curious old Irishman walked to the window, had a peek, and in a soft voice asked,
"What are 'ye sellin' here, lads?" 
Obama replied sarcastically,
"We're selling ass-holes."
Without skipping a beat, the old Irishman said,
" 'Ye must be doing well, only two left."

I had a GREAT Breakfast This Morning..

This morning I stopped at one of the local diners for some bacon and eggs I was craving. As I sat there a gentleman, maybe 10 years older than I , came in and sat down at the far end of the bar. He was dressed in jeans and a T-shirt, working man style. After about 5 minutes another man in shirt and tie, business attire, came in and sat down in between where I was sitting and the first guy.

They obviously new the waitress and were sharing there good mornings when one of them said
"I hope it's a good day"

The other responded " It will be when Obama's gone"

I perked up, raising my coffee mug, "Here's to that!" to which we all toasted.

The next 15 minutes were definitely spirited anti-obama conversation with a few others in the joint chiming in.

It was good to see that sentiment is out there and growing.

It was a great breakfast....

MMMmmmm..... BACON!

I didn't waste the energy to watch, but I'm sure I would have had the same reaction as


Last night Drudge had this picture on his website:

Which Instantly made me think of these:

You get the picture....Anyway, Let's remember some of her great comments, shall we?

"(America is) just downright mean."

"This is who we are. I've got a loud mouth."

"All of our emotional and financial resources… as a country have been totally put into the war."

"You know, he’s (Barack) got a healthy ego because anybody who decides they’re gonna be president of the United States has to think well of themselves."

"...(T)he realities are that, you know, as a black man, you know, Barack can get shot going to the gas station, you know."

"The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more."

"We've been nullified by the fear mongers, you know? It's almost as if people have voted against their best personal issue interests because they've been so afraid of what could happen. You know, the terrorists are gonna get us."

"For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country. And not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change. And I have been desperate to see our country moving in that direction."

" One of the things Barack will say is that … we’re right now in a war that should have never been authorized and never been waged. People like John McCain and people with a whole lot of years in Washington, who looked at a situation and read it wrong."

"That we’re … instead of protecting ourselves against terrorists, that we’re building diplomatic relationships and we're investing in education abroad so that we’re making sure that kids are learning how to read as opposed to ... fight us."

"Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed."


One last thing of the many things not to forget about her:

Geez, What Ever Happened To Men Being Chivalr..... Oh My, Never Mind

It took me about 10 minutes but I finally realized the license plate was quite fitting really.

Hmmm... a Quandary...

The Hope and The Change... Movie Trailer

Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign was a cathartic moment in American history that promised the electorate “Hope” and “Change.”  Citizens United Productions’ latest film, The Hope and The Change, examines the journey of forty Americans - Democrats and Independents - who supported and voted for President Obama four years ago.
This 60 minute documentary follows the daily lives of hard-working Democrats and Independents through unscripted and unrehearsed interviews.  Our diverse cast encompasses a broad cross-section of America’s racial and socio-economic spectrum and comes from seven swing states that experts say will decide the 2012 presidential election. Viewers will see how their nation's economy and society has changed over the past four years under the policies of President Obama.
The award-winning team of Producer David N. Bossie and Writer/Director Stephen K. Bannon traveled to Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia to search out these authentic American stories from citizens who have lost faith in their President.  President Obama campaigned in 2008 on “Hope” and “Change” and what these stories from Americans show is that they are disappointed in the direction of the country.  The voices of everyday Americans in this film will have a major impact on the debates that are currently raging across America.

 It's amazing that these people didn't see through all the smoke and mirrors. They were all longing for something that wasn't there to start with. They drank the Kool-aid. They made their bed.
Now lets hope many more get the picture.
