    Don’t know why there’s no sun up in the sky, stormy weather

  • You know, I lay off the blogging for a while, and I forget it exists. I really wish I’d remembered to post this last week. THE MISSISSIPPI STATE BULLDOGS defeated THE ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE 24-16 FTW Roll in THAT!!!

    I can’t believe I forgot to post this!

  • Okay, Democratic controlled Congress is forthcoming in January. The sun will rise every day next year just like it did this year. I may pay more in taxes, but that’s nothing new. We’ll all survive. Sure, it’s not the most optimal of circumstances, but they haven’t been optimal since….ever. So, […]

    Political fallout from the election

  • Of course, there’s a thing in the news lately about Michael J. Fox jittering away in a political ad, and it reminds me of a long-standing pet peeve of mine. Why is it that folks want their middle initial in their full name? I don’t go on the air and […]

    I hate it when people’s middle initial is part of their name

  • There’s a lot being said about this lately.  Democrats say we should put down the Republican leadership because they knew of it.  Republicans say they didn’t know and Dems are using it for political gain.  Now a Catholic priest is said to have swam naked with him as a child, […]

  • Yes, friends, it’s BIKER CHURCH! I’ve been laughing over this for a whole month, since the first sign was put up. Don’t get me wrong, I have no problem with an outreach towards folks who ride two-wheelers. It’s just funny.

  • One of the EPSN2 talking heads asked an interesting question tonight…is tackling football players by their hair okay? Some might argue, and it has some merit, that it’s no different than taking someone down by the face mask.  Pulling the hair can indeed have the same effect of grabbing a […]

    Hair Tackling in football?

  • Practically nobody outside East Mississippi knows about or remembers Coach Bull Sullivan. He’s one of those legendary figures you hear about in hushed, reverent tones from the elders of the community. In my area, there are still a number of people around who played for him…such as one of my […]

  • We have a little red building on our property. It was built in the early/mid-eighties as a washhouse (for our washer and dryer), as we lived in a trailer at the time and had no room inside for the appliances. Several years later, my folks built a house, and the […]

  • Three separate instances of idiots walking into schools to molest and kill children and then (attempting to) kill themselves. Lord help us…it’s not much longer before this world is through. It can’t come soon enough at this rate. The thing that bugs me so much is that, if these punks […]
