Remembering 9-11, 2001.

Ten years ago, I woke up to news on my alarm clock (I absolutely hate the beep-beep-beep alarms). I heard the tower had fallen. I was confused, thinking Salt Lake (where I was living) had taken down an old building and wondered why there was so much horror involved in a demolition. So I went […]

The “Buy Black” Movement

If you’re not familiar, read this.

Basically, a black couple started an experiment to only shop from black store owners/businesses.

I don’t mind that. Minorities typically support themselves and other minorities. What bothers me is that it’s now a “movement.” A movement! Isn’t this what happened in the 1930’s in Germany when non-Jews weren’t allowed […]

Which Would Be a Better Guard Animal?

On one hand, we have the kangalion. Fast, can hop on you and then bite your head off.

On the other hand, we have the roodog. Great runner and can peck your eyes out.

Hmmmm….decisions, decisions….


Wolf Brand Chili Anyone?

If you know Texas well, you know Wolf Brand Chili. It’s seriously the best chili in a can. Wicked awesome taste then it has that heat that kicks you in the back of the throat. Good stuff 😀

One of my friends on Facebook recently wrote his parents sent him some (he’s out of state, […]

Redneck Friday

Sadly (or funnily) some of these apply to my family though I won’t go into detail.

You take a load to the dump and bring back more than you took. dad

You ever cut your grass and found a car. dad

The Halloween pumpkin on your front porch has more teeth than your wife.

You […]


I have a weakish stomach. Certain body fluids really make me cringe, gag, dry heave, etc. Like my husband or kids or anyone else blowing their nose. Or seeing someone spit. Bloody noses.

If it’s my kid (a little one) it’s easier. But once they hit 3-4 yrs old, it’s over for me. And if […]

I’m Loving This Weather!

Yesterday I took the boys out to play. I put Dean down on a blanket with some toys and opened Pierce’s sandbox. They played for an hour before Dean wanted to be picked up. That’s a long time for a 9-month old!! It was great. I did some more yard work (raked branches) and then […]

Gotta Vent.

This is about the voting in CA, so if you’re tired of the subject, sorry. But I’ve got to get this off my chest.

If you’ve looked around my site or have read for awhile, you know I’m LDS (Mormon). And the Mormons have gotten a lot of publicity in CA for their stance on […]

Today’s the Day!

Fellow Americans, today is the day to decide on the future of our country!! It’s an amazing privilege to be able to vote and I encourage each of you to get ready and make your final decision. If you’re still undecided, you better hurry!

I think both candidates have something good to offer, and either […]

Rumors About Obama?

I couldn’t come up with anything creative to say today, so I stole a post my husband wrote on one of his blogs.

What if they were true? Would it really make a difference, or is Obama too much of a savior in people’s eyes to see the truth?

I’m thinking that Obama could produce […]
