Three men were sitting in a pub.....

Three men were sitting in a pub bragging to each other how they had set their new wives straight on their married duties.

The first man had married a woman from Sweden, and bragged that he had told his wife she was to do all the dishes, laundry, and house cleaning that needed doing in their new house. He said it took a couple of days of not seeing much done, but on the third day he came home to a clean house, laundry done, and dishes washed and put away.

The second man had married a woman from France. He bragged that he had told his wife that she was to do all the dishes, laundry, house cleaning, and cooking. He told them on the first day he didn't see any results, the next day was a little better, and on the third day all was done and he had a hot meal on the table waiting for him.


The third man married a Irish woman...............

This Man's Generation Is Going To Be Missed......


MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Twin Cities great-grandfather is getting a lot of attention for a video showing him shoveling his neighbor’s sidewalk.
“I’ve always been active, always doing something,” St. Paul resident Richard Mann said.
The 101-year-old has learned a thing or two about work ethic over his long life. After his father died when he was four, he took care of work around the house to help his single mom. Snow shoveling was one of his duties.
“I was the only boy, and it was an automatic thing for me to more or less do ‘a man’s job,'” Mann said.


Running Late And A Bit Groggy.....

I had to take the batteries out of the carbon monoxide detector last night.
The loud beeping was giving me a headache and making me feel sick and dizzy.

mAss DOT and Our Tax Dollars

 Over the past few years the DOT has been putting up these highway messaging signs.

This one here has been like this for over a  week on  Route 3 In Mass.

Another Post Worth Reading....

"The media are full of traitors who do not have the integrity to stand up to power when they agree with the offender's politics."

From T.L Davis:

 There are a few posts that I have been thinking about for a long time. I haven't written them, because they are too long and too involved and they don't do much other than restate what we all know, but at times like this, I just can't hold my tongue.

There is not a politician in office right now, who is not a traitor. There is no other way to put it. I know there are some good ones in there somewhere. Steve King of Iowa is one, a man who stands up for what he believes and walks out on the SOTU before he had to listen to any of the obvious garbage Barack Obama might spew. I know that in civilized politics, that is not an acceptable reaction, but he did it, probably because the concept of "civilized politics" in this day and age is ludicrous. 


The Man Who Gave the World Elvis and Is Credited With Inventing Rock and Roll

Sam Phillips was born poor in north Alabama near Florence. Florence is located on the Tennessee River and is conidered part of the "Shoals" (Muscle Shoals, Sheffield, Florence, and Tucumbia aka The Quad Cities). This area is very famous for it's recording studios, being the birthplace of W.C. Handy (the father of the blues), and of course Sam Phillips. At an early age Sam Phillips fell in love with radio broadcast and followed this vocation to not too distant Memphis, Tennessee (his family is still in the radio business and owns Big River Broadcasting with stations in Decatur and Florence, AL). While doing various radio jobs he opened SUN Records and recorded what would become some of the biggest names in history. Sam's discoveries and promotions went on to forever change the world. Among some of his "finds" were, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbinson, and of course Elvis Preseley. When thinking along these lines I think of quote from John Lennon that states "without Elvis, there wouldn't have been the Beatles".

Here is an interesting article about Sam and recent book. Click HERE for the link.

A Couple Good Videos To Watch and Share...

First up, this one from MOONBATTERY

Where this comment was left by Hans Pfall in regards to Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory's vid:

Now THERE is a real man. I know nothing of him but what I saw in this video. Dignity. Intelligence. Eloquence. Patriotism. Fortitude. Forthrightness. Directness of speech without equivocation or hesitation. Unafraid to reference God's word in the Bible.
This should be played on every television station in the country. This man should he held up as a roll model for ALL Americans, but especially those in the black community. His manner and presentation should give a sense of shame to the "Baby-daddy, Glo-zel, ebonic, hip-hop, thug" culture that is Black America today. His grasp of the issues and ability to articulate them should give a sense of shame to ALL of the ignorant, uninformed, radical leftist, America-hating "millennials" that can't take their eyes off their iPhones.
Is there anyone here that wouldn't be proud to have a gentleman like that as a friend or neighbor? Men like that make me remember why I'm proud to be an American.

Crater Lake Oregon.....

 One time when the Chief of the Below World was on the earth he saw Loha, the daughter of the tribal chief. Loha was a beautiful maiden, tall and straight as the arrowwood. The Chief of the Below World saw her and fell in love with her. He told her of his love and asked her to return with him to his lodge inside the mountain. But Loha refused to go with him. The Chief of the Below World was very angry. He swore he would have revenge on the people of Loha, that he would destroy them with the Curse of Fire. Raging and thundering on the top of his mountain, he saw the face of the Chief of the Above World on the top of Mount Shasta. From their mountaintops the two spirit chiefs began a furious battle. Mountains shook and crumbled. Red-hot rocks as large as the hills hurtled through the skies. Burning ashes fell like rain. The Chief of the Below World spewed fire from his mouth. Like an ocean of flame it devoured the forests on the mountains and the valleys. The Curse of Fire reached the homes of the people. Fleeing in terror before it, they found refuge in Klamath Lake. [Eventually the Chief Below the World] was driven into his home [by the Chief above the World], and the mountain fell upon him. When the morning sun rose, the high mountain was gone. The mountain which the Chief Below the World had called his own no longer towered near Mount Shasta. For many years the rain fell in torrents and filled the great hole that was made when the mountain fell upon the Chief of the Below World. Now you understand why my people do not visit the lake. From father to son has come the warning “Do not look upon this place.”

The story, and its connection with real geological events, is presented in When They Severed Earth From Sky. The book demonstrates in this and many other cases how myths and legends can preserve detailed information about the past.
