Gun Blog Black List

Just a note.

If your swimsuit forms an “X” on the back with the straps, this means you have four quadrants upon which to slather sunscreen: top, bottom, left, and right.

If you have a friend present, it is not completely out of the question to ask them to help you apply sunscreen to the places you cannot […]

An Old Farmer’s Advice

I got this in an email forward from my grandmother last night – I thought it was cute, and wanted to share it with you all.



-Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight, and bull-strong.

-Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.

-Life is simpler when you plow around the […]

o god my life?

Life’s not terribly exciting for me right now, but it’s not boring, either.

I’m either working, trying to catch up on cleaning and/or animal care, or sleeping, which is why my online presence hasn’t been very prolific.

JB’s house-sitting for some pseudo-family members (the woman was his aunt by marriage, but she divorced JB’s uncle, […]

Well, Earth is a little quieter, at least.

Billy Mays was found dead in his home this morning.

He was 50.

Knives Infinity Update

I was contacted back by Kris, who was apparently out of town and unable to answer emails last week.

He apologized for the trouble, and told me that if my refund has not processed in the next three days (I’m giving it until Tuesday, because PayPal can sometimes be weird about wait times), to let […]

Knives Infinity *UPDATED – situation has been resolved*

UPDATE: Entry here stating the resolution of the situation. Everything’s fine – it wasn’t a scam, I used PayPal, and it’s been worked out. No worries – link has been re-established, and I will be ordering again (with a different address, just in case) in the near future.


I told you guys I would […]

If photographs really contain a piece of your soul, mine is for sale.

You know that whole, “pick a date for your bill to be paid” option that so many websites have? Like, cell phone bills, energy bills, internet bills, etc?

Well, our energy company, MLGW, has that option. And I decided to utilize it. And they decided to ignore it.

So instead of the bill coming out […]

Things I found out via text message today.

I worked all day, without internet access, and with limited telephone access, but I do carry my cell phone around with me in case of emergencies, and will check for text messages when I get a moment.

This morning, I was told that Farrah Fawcett finally succumbed to cancer.

This evening, I was told that […]

First update in two days, and it’s kind of depressing. Sorry about that.

I mentioned that I had some stuff to go over at my doctor’s office this morning, and that it wasn’t really a good thing.

Well, to be frank and just come out with it: I’ve been having seizures.

They’ve happened several times in the past year, and from what I can tell, they’re simple partial […]

Too tired to be clever.

The Blogmeet was a blast. I really enjoyed seeing everyone and meeting the newbies, and JB said that he had fun, too. We’ll have to make sure we do those things more often. Sorry I don’t have a more complete synopsis – I’ve had a full weekend, and I have to be up early tomorrow, […]
