There I was, sitting on the Group W bench

19 posts in this topic

last night, I had just got back from a long hike, looking for sheds. I was having a beer, watching my fish tank, contemplating life, but what comes crawling across my hand but a wood tick!! And it was one of the small deer ticks about the size of a pin head!!!

Moral of the story is that the wood ticks are out, check yourself and your dogs. I picked two off my lab last week also. I left my clothes in the garage and took a shower before I went to bed.

I did find one shed in my hike, and the great part is that my lab found it and came 'dancing up to me' with it. I praised her heavily and we went hunting more. I've been working with her on shed hunting, retrieving some sheds before we go for a hike. She also came back with a bird breastbone and a deer shoulder blade, I praised her on those too, I figure any 'bone' that she brings back is good, she’s getting the idea.

For those of you wondering what the 'Group W' bench is, Google 'Alice's Restaurant'. smile

and there I was with the mother rapers and father rapers when they asked me what I got busted for. Not to change the topic but, that is a funny funny classic!!!!! I've wondered what it would be like to live in the steeple of a church. But, I don't have enough friends that would help me haul out the trash. I had tears comin outta my eyes while I was reading this string. Besides, it took me back to my youthful days of indescretions. LOL....LOL. Jumping up and down yelling KILL...KILL....KILL. You're our man!!!!!

I am crossing my fingers and hoping that NOBODY has to google search what that is all about!

Because I cannot tell a lie... I put that envelope beneath that garbage.

I used to listen to it every Thanksgiving on KQ, but I am not sure if they even do it anymore. Definately a classic.

Walk right in it's around the back

Just a half a mile from the railroad track

Now it all started two Thanksgivings ago, was on - two years ago on Thanksgiving, when my friend and I went up to visit Alice at the restaurant...

Does anyone know if KQ is playing this tomorrow? If so what time?

    • A CO2 detector also protects you from what comes into your house thru a cracked window. Had mine go off last week on red. Turns out the wind had changed and generator exhaust was now blowing towards house. Generator was 50' from the house. 
    • After I got laid off awhile back I searched all of the above daily.  There would be some duplicate jobs posted on every site but a large number would only be found on one site or the other.  Companies seem to have their preferred job board and then stick to it for all their job postings so you really need to look at all of them.    Also don't over look the idea of targeting companies.  If you know a certain area you'd be looking to move to look to see what companies in that area might be able to use someone with your skills.  Then look at those companies job boards if they have them or send in a resume to their HR dept to see if they have any openings.  There are a lot of hidden jobs out there that don't get posted to a normal job board so you need to be savvy to find them.    A recruiter can also help but you need to find the right recruiter. I worked with a few and only one was really any good and had connections to the right kind of jobs for me.  If you can find one that specializes in your field then it might be worth connecting with one.  When i did it didn't cost me anything but a little bit of my time and they were able to hook me up with a decent contract job to help fill in the gap until i got on full time somewhere. 
    • Trump Touts "People Are Seeing Big Stuff” After GM Unveils 7,000 New U.S. Jobs   Confirming rumors that leaked yesterday, GM has just announced plans to invest $1 billion in its U.S. manufacturing operations and add 7,000 jobs domestically, over the next "few years".  Of course, the move follows similar announcements from Ford and Fiat-Chrysler over recent weeks in an apparent effort to appease the incoming Trump administration amid threats of a 35% import tariff and after years of outsourcing automotive manufacturing jobs to Mexico.  To add icing to the cake, GM notes that 450 of the new jobs will come from insourcing jobs previously moved to Mexico.          The winning continues...
    • Hyundai To Boost Investment In The US To $3.1 Billion Over 5 Years   Korea's Hyundai Motor Group said it plans to lift U.S. investment by 50 percent to $3.1 billion over five years and may build a new plant there - the latest auto firm to announce fresh spending after President-elect Donald Trump threatened to tax imports.      
    • This is our year! i feel there is something different about them! I see the passion and intensity they have. Putting the puck on the net is key!
    • OK, let's play you're game. Deficits and debt are no problem, I'll take your word for it.    Please tell me then:
      Why does YOUR party want to reduce the debt?
      Why was your party against debt when Obama was racking it up?
      Why do you vote for Republicans when you don't agree with them on very many issues?
    • What I worried about in the past and why I was not to high on them was because Parise and Sutter were supposed to carry the load but that is evidently no longer the case.  The Sophomores and Juniors have "figured it out" and have stepped up and are carrying the team...not to mention Stall is "reborn".  IMO as long as Dubnyk stays healthy I don't think we have anything to worry about. It is all about he playoffs now as they'd have to take a huge step back not to get in IMO....we'll so how far they can go....with this new found success.  
    • Grain Belt is bottled by Schell's - either one works for me, although my preference is Schell's Deer Brand.  But it's not stocked in a lot of bars or package stores here in the north country.
