Long before you take this cowboys hat...

That was unt...

The way I think.  I think it may be messed up.  When I look atsomething I first see how it works or how it was put together.  I analyzeit to some degree before I see anything else.  For example a work ofgraphic art, when I look at one I try to decipher the way it was produced thenwhen I am satisfied that I have a good idea of the piece was made I then look atthe beauty of it.  A friend of mine builds custom motorcycles, once again Isee the design, fit and finish and how it was set up mechanicall...

It's that time again.

 

Time for the company to do their yearly United Way Drive.  A silly PR stunt that many companies participate in each year.  From what I gather it works like this, they send each employee a little card that enables you to donate a percentage or a fixed amount to the United Way or through the United Way to your designated Cause.  But what it's really an effort on the companies part to be able to say that their company had 100% participation in a cha...

My parents would have sent me straight out of highschool.  I had the grades and could have gotten the scholarships.  ButI didn't think that I was ready.  So I joined the US Navy.  I knowthat they were all proud of me but, I could feel that they though I squanderedby chance at an education.  I served in the navy for 6 years most of whichas a Cryogenics Tech.  When I got out of the Navy I secured a job with acompany that pays well and has tuition reimbursement. So I t...

    In another blog many people were arguingabout what service to your country is and that maybe their kids couldn't handlebeing in the armed services. Joining an American armed service is a decisionthat should be left to the individual.  His or her parents should notinterfere.  My son is currently at the MEPS station getting sworn into theMarine Core.  I wish that he had at least chosen the Navy, Coast Guard or Air forcebut, as I said it was not my decision and all...

I hate "Posers"

Well I used to.

It seems that no matter what what group you choose to belong to thereare always those who want to fit in but don't.  They think that bywearing all the right cloths or saying all the right things that theycan weasel their way in.  We all know that it doesn't work.

When I was younger I despised and made jokes about the posers thatwould show up in the country bars and clubs that I hung out in. You could spot them from a mile away.  They a...

For quite some time now Missouri has had a “No Call List”. The list, for the most, part keeps for profit businesses from annoying me. The problem with the list is that it doesn’t prohibit charities and politicians from calling. The politicians aren’t that annoying they only call a few times a year. However the charities that tele-market are absolutely disgusting.

Next time one calls ask if the caller is a volunteer, 90% of the time the answer will be no. This tells me that the charity ...
