Since I don't really have anything to write about I'm going to pull some headlines and just write about them.
Astronauts enjoy recycled urine
Now I'm all for recycling but this may be the extreme. NASA claims each crew member creates about a gallon of water from urine every six hours. Can you imagine the first time someone had to test the system. I don't care how much thought, planning and whatever else went into it, the first time someone had to drink it I can't imagine what was going through their head.
Moonshine to Mexican Pot
The investigation showed how an 83-year-old grandfather adapted to the times, morphing from old school bootlegging to dealing Mexican dope. His son acted as the ringleader of the operation. His grandson was tied in too, authorities say.That is enough rambling for today kids. You enjoy your long weekend.
Now this is good. Man goes from Moonshing to selling Mexican pot. They would bury the pot in the woods in metal cans and the buyers would dig it up and put the cash, thousands of dollars back in the metal can and bury it. The 83 year old man was given 20 years and has cancer. He has been handed a death sentence. The old man claims his son, who only got 9 years, has thrown him under the bus, but he son attorney claims, "If the father got a longer sentence, it's because he's a lousy father. ... He was never there for his son, except to be a bad example." That is pretty harsh but the best comment is this, "Michael's a wonderful family man, a Christian -- which means a lot to him, a very religious man. And I point out that in the Bible, God gave us every seed-bearing plant, and I think Michael looked at it that way. And, unfortunately, our government since 1937 has not seen it as a God-given right."
So since God made pot it should be legal. Classic.
Fugitive mom, 555-pound son found in Md
I can't imagine being 300 pounds. That would mean me weighing around 50 more pounds than I do now. I'm too fat and am going to work on losing some of the extra as I don't need to die to young.
How can a parent let a child get that large? I mean that is ridiculous. At some point you have to realize your child weighs to much and it isn't healthy.
Pujols knocks out the I in BIG MAC LAND
I remember when they started Big Mac Land in honor of Mark McGwire in old Busch stadium. There is a video link in the story that shows the light just going off after being hit. It is a rocket of a shot. I've seen some pretty nice home runs but I would have loved to have seen that one. And what really gets under my skin is sports center decided that Pujols home run wasn't good enough for the Top Ten plays but it puts in two lacrosse goals. BULLSHIT

That is where I also took a shot yesterday.
Monday night I was coughing so hard I seriously considered going to urgent care. Mom wasn't home and I was concerned about driving myself as I didn't want to get to coughing so bad I couldn't drive safely. By the time she got home urgent care was closed so I opted to wait and see if I could get into the doctor.
The doctor worked me in at 10:30. I got a shot of antibiotics, a prescription for antiboitics and some powerful cough syrup.
The stuff I was able to cough up this morning was looser and hopefully it will all be gone by this weekend.
She said I had a sinus infection that moved to my chest area.
I'm glad I went when I did before it turned into something more serious.
Work has been going. One week left thanks to the ice storm. I did sign my contract the other day so I do have a job for another year.
I will be all caught up in the morning and I will then go and start getting things ready for summer school.
It is time to go home.
Have a great hump night.

|From Dueling Pianos to BBQ cooking
Elton John and Billy Joel was great.
They came out together and played each others songs together. They traded off of doing one of one, then another. Billy Joel left the stage and Elton played his hits. I knew them all but one. Elton left and Billy Joel came back out and played all his greatest songs and talked to the crowd and put on a great show. Elton reappeared and they played together for the last 45 mins or so. The concert was over 3.5 hours long of consent playing by one or both. It was great. Worth the ticket price and only sleeping 3 hours that night to have to get up and drive to Memphis.
By the time we got home, I packed I got 3 hours of sleep before getting up to drive to Memphis. I had to stop at Walmart and get some things for the tent. I got to the tent site by 10 AM. I had to wait for the head cook to head in b/c I couldn't keep carrying the cambros in by myself, too bulky and heavy.
We get to the cooking site/camp site and do a light cleaning. We get the fire going and then figure out what times items need to go on the grill so they can be done for the turn in time.
We spend most of the day cooking chicken, chicken wings, Chilean sea bass and beef. We also turned in two sauces, one mustard based, one tomato based.
We got everything done and turned in and waited for the results. A lot of the team went down to the results show. I stayed back and watched the tent area and made sure no one wanted to cut thru our area, beg for food or want to use our port a potty. They only announce the top three winners in each 'side' category. They all came back joking we got a lot of fourth places. We proceeded to party the night away. I had several friends stop by and say hi. It was a great night. On Friday nights I'm in charge of closing the tent down. We had some guys show up that where friends of the guy who pays the bulk of the money for us to compete, so we had to let him in and put up with him but damn was he and his friends annoying.
I got the tent shut down around 12:30 and by the time I got to my friends house and asleep it was 1:30. Up and gone by 6:30. So for those keeping track at home 8 hours of sleep the last to nights.
The big part of Memphis in May is on site judging. So you have to transform your camp area into a presentation. So we start cleaning, get the fire going for the ribs. We hang panels from the sides of our tent to block off part of the back so we can hide our stuff and make our site look pretty. So we clean and clean and cook and cook. Some of the team members get nervous and want things done way to early with the set up. I keep telling them no to wait so it looks clean by the time we get judged.
We get all set up and ready. The on site judges come and go. We get through all 3 judges and start to wait. If you are in the top 3 in your category you get judged again. So we wait to see if the judges are coming back. Well some of the 'team' members get antsy and start to break out food to eat, walking all over the camp site and everything. So I tell them we mine as well break down as we have ruined our site anyway. One judge comes back and tells us he gave us a 10 on everything but camp site. There was a piece of paper on the ground he took off for it. So he gave us a 9.9 overall. We all figured we where fucked b/c of it.
We go down the awards. We are waiting as they announce the top 10. The get to number 5 and it starts with The, like our name. I am like those cock teasing SOBs, I know we didn't win b/c of the paper. Then he says fabulous and we all start jumping up and down as we just won 5 place out of over a 100 teams. We got up on stage and got our trophy. It was surreal but amazing.
We went back and celebrated for a bit, but I was so worn out that I left around 8:30 to go find a hotel room. I got a room and went to bed around 10:30 and slept till the alarm went off the next morning.
Sunday we got the site cleaned up and packed up and I was home by noon.
Since we only get one trophy I'm going to have plaques made that say the following
Presented to Team Member Name
For the Accomplishments of The Fabulous Faultliners
At the 2009 Memphis in May
World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest
5th Place in Ribs
4th Place in Poultry
10th Place in Mustard Sauce
Dead Ass Last in Tomato Sauce
I better go get ready for work.
I still have my cough. Can't get much to come out yet, but it will someday, I just know it.
Have a great Monday.

Click below to watch Brittian's got talent shocker. You may have seen it already but it is well worth watching.
Last night at cards was horrible. I would get a good hand get run over everytime. I was home well before 9 I know. I had played golf in our Men's League also. We had a good time, just didn't play to well, but it is early in the year still.
I chatted with a friend and then watched a couple of DVRed shows as my back log is getting bigger and bigger on it ha ha.
I was asleep by 11 I know and slept straight through to my alarm.
Today at work I have a PC to deliver back and then figure out why another keeps blue screening and getting a count on smart boards needed.
After work I have to go to where my brother lives to work on some PCs. And pick up a battery for the home alarm system.
My brother is having a poker game but I'm not feeling like playing, maybe I have a fever or something ha ha.
Here are some great quotes all by the same person to end on.

Friday night I worked the football game. I left the football game at half time as we where winning 52-0, final score was 64-7 with sixth string scoring a touchdown. I went to the country club to get a couple of things ready for the tournament the next day and then to bar to drink. I went ahead and got full blown drunk for no reason. Almost was a fight, not involving me.
Saturday I got up and went to the club. Head was a little fuzzy but not to bad. Got everything ready for the tournament. I did forget Friday night one of the guys asked me why I was always running things. I told him b/c no one else fucking would do it. I don't mind helping and doing, just don't come bitching when you don't like how how something is done and you did nothing to help. I also don't take shit from people and just go on down the road. One of the guys who was signed up came in and asked what handicap I gave him. I told him he didn't get one as he didn't turn enough cards to get one. He tried to argue and I just flat out told him that he wasn't getting one, that if he wanted one to stop playing scramble golf all the time. He tried to argue and I said this is how it is, take it or leave it. He took it.
After 9 holes I had a one stroke lead on the best golfer at the club. I figured if I beat him, I'd win. With 7 holes left we where tied. With 5 holes left I was down one stroke. I honestly started talking to myself. I just told myself that it was now or never. That I had the talent to win that I had to dig deep, stop my nerves and play like I knew I could. With 2 holes left I had a one stroke lead and won by one stroke. I actually sweep the tournament. I won lowest score out right and lowest net, first time that has ever happened.
Saturday night I went to a costume/birthday party. I went as a road worker. I stole a vest and hat from the cotton gin. The night crew wears reflective vests and hats for safety. Got even more shit faced drunk than the night before. So by my best count I was drunk Thursday night, Friday night and Saturday. We had a great time at the party.
My phone decided it didn't like my text messages or call log and deleted them both. So every text message was deleted. I didn't do a thing look down at it at some point and they where gone. Didn't lose any numbers just messages and call log.
Yesterday I played golf. Probably the last time for the year. Mom came home. Went and saw SAW V. I liked it.
Hope you have a great week.

|The wheels on the buss
Go round and round, round and round
no idea why that song is stuck in my head but it is.
Today there are no students at the school. Parent/teacher conference day.
Friday I started installing the new pc's I was working on earlier in the week and finished them up this morning.
Saturday I played golf and played piss poor by my standards. It didn't matter where I hit it if I was on the edge of the fairway I was under a tree limb, it got to be more funny than frustrating by the end. It was just my day in the barrell.
Saturday night I went by a BBQ for a friend. Her husband is actually my boss at the school. He and friend are looking at starting a catering business for BBQ. He has a long way to go but he can get there. He needs to practice cooking more and people dont' need to lie to him if the food isn't that good. Friends have a habit of saying that things are good to spare feelings. I am not like that most of the time. Sometimes it is a fault but I'm just me.
I also watch Mizzou get it handed to them by Texas. And watched the Redsox hand it to the the rays.
Yesterday I played golf and played much much better. I shot 3 under par. Then we watched the baseball game and the I was happy the Rays won. Shows that a deep pockets don't always have to win.
Right now I'm waiting for the spyware removal program to run so that I can get this PC cleaned up. It is infected pretty nasty. After this is done I have to install floppy drives into the PC's in the library that I haven't gotten around to doing just yet. Little slow at times. I also have to get my office cleaned up before the MSIP people show up. Lots of things need to be thrown away, once again just to lazy to get up and do it. Thou I use the excuse I'm to busy, ha ha
Have a great week

My weekend was good. Friday, friday, friday, I played golf and drank to much beer just like I did Thursday night. My golf game wasn't up to my standards, but I realize I'm not always gonna play my best.
Saturday I played in the charity golf tournament for the catholic school I went to. I also helped them run it. My team ended up getting 3rd place.
Sunday I played golf for a little awhile. But since I wasn't in the match and am battling a mild bout with depression I just stopped playing. I did make some smoked sausage with dry bbq rub on it, like they do at the rendezvous in memphis. I love those things. I didn't drink sunday, gave my liver a rest that day from processing out the alcohol. Sunday night I put a dent in my DVR recordings. I also went to church on Sunday.
Today I finished up watching the DVR, worked on some computers at the cotton gin, picked up some things at radio shack, helped get the grain elevator going (not really just pulled the doors shut they told me too, ha ha)finally crawled back up in the ceiling and redid the ends for the cable runs in my bathroom and the spare bed room so now they have a clear picture again.
Tomorrow and the rest of the work will be busy but should help the time pass.
I think I figured out what brought on my depression. My father passed away on Oct 16, 1990. For years I just told myself that it was all a bad dream. I did that for so long that I changed the chemistry in my brain. In college I started taking Zoloft and therapy. I finally got better with the help of both of them. I stopped taking the Zoloft 3 years ago with the help of my Dr. I don't' take any anti-depression medication anymore. But like most people I get bouts of depression. It causes me to feel not good enough to be anyone's friend. I know it isn't true but I still feel that way. But I hope to past this bout very soon.
All my laundry is caught up and put up. The being put up the impressive part. I have a bad habit of letting my clean clothes take up half my bed.
I'm going to finish watching the baseball game (dodgers and phillys.)

More on the title later
My birthday celebration was good. We hada great time. The band rocked and I drank way to much. When we got back to my brothers I didn't last to much longer. I was awoken at 5:30 with some girl crying over some guy that pulled her V card and was with someone else. I hate young girl drama (young is 21-23 in my case now, ha ha)
Saturday I did play golf before going out. I played well. Next week is our club ryder type thing with 3 other clubs. We have won once, another club as won all the other times. I bet we have lost 5 times by a total of less than 7 points. It has been close. Hopefully we can pull it off this year.
Work was crazy yesterday. Had a piece of equipment go out. Wait over 4 hours for a call back from the equipment manufactor. All I could do was wait by the phone. Looked as thou I was doing nothing. I'm sure some of the teachers bitched about it but oh well. Nothing I can do about it. The part should be here by 10:30 this morning.
My to do list is still getting smaller thou yesterday it was just added nothing removed. I'll get it crossed off sometime.
Now onto the title.
I'm dropping my online class. I can't hack it. I don't understand it and I should have not even picked it to start with. That is what I get for thinking I could make myself learn on my own a subject like World Econ. The worst part is, I have to eat the entire cost of the class now. Lesson learned. Moving on.
Have a great Tuesday.

Work has been horrible. I'm still behind. I honestly hope by Friday to be all caught up.
I'm going to have to issue a memo telling people to start calling my work phone and leaving voice mails instead of my cell phone. We just put in a new phone system and my voice mails gets emailed to me so I will get them as they are left and can listen to them and get the emergencies right away and make a list of the other things. B/c right now what happens is Iisten to them on my cell phone and delete them adn forget what it was. I know I could do better but I think this will be the easier way to handle it.
I also hate when they call my school phone leave a message then call my cell phone and leave a message. Like I'm avoiding them on my school phone or won't respond. It doesn't help them get help any faster and has moved people down to the list as it pisses me off, ha ha.
I enjoyed a very relaxing time in Hot Springs, Ark with friends. I got to play golf, we swam, drank, hung out. It was just what I needed to help relax me, before someone got yelled out and I got in trouble for it. Everything will get done at work no matter how long it takes, ha ha.
I just used google spell checker on something and the word texting wasn't in there. I find that odd in today's time. Speaking of texting my friends say I have a problem with my phone, namely it is always by me and I'm always on it. Not on it as in talking but as in texting, emailing, checking scores, just whatever. I do realize that I love my phone and being connected, but don't think I'm really that much different than others. Oh well.
I haven't been to the movies in forever. I have so many movies I wanna see. Guess I need to make time for that.
You know what sounds good right now? I soft pretzel. I wish I still has some of those frozen ones to heat up. But I guess at 11 at night I shouldn't eat as it leads to weight gain and we are on an antiweight gain campain, ha ha.
I made a 7/10 on my first test in internation econ. I don't have my grade from my homework yet. I need a B to get part of the tution back. We will see what happens.
Next weekend I'm in St. Louis for the BMW championship. Should be awsome.
Not much else to ramble on about.
Oh yeah, my diary was one of the ones hacked on opendiary by the guy from over seas. After reading how it was being done, it sounds like a complicated program, to bad the person tried to use it for evil instead of putting his/her knowledge to good use.

|here and there
Where to start.
School has been okay for the first two days, ha ha.
Work has been kicking my ass, but my head is above water I think the daylight is coming in the end of the week. I have 8 computers left to install then I will go into maintain mode for the year. I do have to figure out the new phone system this week.
I had a great time on a mini one day vaction this weekend. Was a nice relaxing time that I needed.
The best sport to ever be devoloped is on right now. Women's beach vollyball.
Speaking of sports how about Michael Phelps? What he did was amazing. The first relay team come from behind victory, then Phelps come from behind victory, the total domination of the middle relay (800 M Free Relay I think). In the middle relay it took the american swimmer already turning and headed the other way for all the field to come into view. Totally amazing.
My golf game has been great lately. I hope it can continue for the rest of the year.
My social calander is booked thru the first week of October. Be it golf, watching the BMW in st louis, going to the lake or out of town. I will have I55 burning up the next 6 weeks.
I have lost almost 10 pounds. I have started eating slower which makes a big difference in the amount of food you eat. If I do eat normal speed I limit the amount of food and may leave hungry but get over it.
Have a great week.

Not sure if this is true or not but it is a good read.
You gotta love Robin Williams......Even if he's nuts! Leave it to Robin Williams to come up with the perfect plan. What we need now is for our UN Ambassador to stand up and repeat this message.
Robin Williams' plan...(Hard to argue with this logic!)
"I see a lot of people yelling for peace but I have not heard of a plan for peace. So, here's one plan."
1) "The US will apologize to the world for our "interference" in their affairs, past & present. You know, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Tojo, Noriega, Milosevic, Hussein, and the rest of those "good ' ole' boys", we will never "interfere" again.
2) We will withdraw our troops from all over the world, starting with Germany , South Korea , the Middle East , and the Philippines . They don't want us there. We would station troops at our borders. No one allowed sneaking through holes in the fence..
3) All illegal aliens have 90 days to get their affairs together and leave .. We'll give them a free trip home. After 90 days the remainder will be gathered up and deported immediately, regardless of whom or where they are.
They're illegal!!! France will welcome them.
4) All future visitors will be thoroughly checked and limited to 90 days unless given a special permit!!!! No one from a terrorist nation will be allowed in If you don't like it there, change it yourself and don't hide here. Asylum would never be available to anyone. We don't need any more cab drivers or 7-11 cashiers.
5) No foreign "students" over age 21. The older ones are the bombers. If they don't attend classes, they get a "D" and it's back home baby.
6) The US will make a strong effort to become self-sufficient energy wise.This will include developing nonpolluting sources of energy but will require a temporary drilling of oil in the Alaskan wilderness. The caribou
will have to cope for awhile .
7) Offer Saudi Arabia and other oil producing countries $10 a barrel for their oil. If they don't like it, we go someplace else. They can go somewhere else to sell their production. (About a week of the wells filling
up the storage sites would be enough.)
8) If there is a famine or other natural catastrophe in the world, we will not "interfere." They can pray to Allah or whomever, for seeds, rain, cement or whatever they need. Besides most of what we give them is stolen
or given tothe army. The people who need it most get very little, if anything.
9) Ship the UN Headquarters to an isolated island someplace. We don't need the spies and fair weather friends here. Besides, the building would make a good homeless shelter or lockup for illegal aliens.
10) All Americans must go to charm and beauty school. That way, no one can call us "Ugly Americans" any longer. The Language we speak is ENGLISH..learn it...or LEAVE...Now, isn't that a winner of a plan?
"The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses." She's got a baseball bat and she's yelling, 'you want a piece of me?' "

Where to start. Lets just see where this goes.
Work has been crazy still. The company in charge of remodeling two of the elementary buildings has made a huge mess that took us weeks to get straightened out on the network side of it. Wires where cut or missing, it was a major pain in the ass.
But work is getting better and I hope after Thursday I will be able to fix problems as they come in and not have my backlog.
Outside of work i've been busy with computer repair and softball. I hit my first ever over the fence homerun two weeks ago. It was awsome.
Sara took a new job with a software company and is trying to build up their sales in Missouri right now and so she has flown in a day early twice now and I've driven to St. Louis to spend the day with her. She will be back in a week or two at the latest. I really enjoy spending time with her and we are going to see if things can work this time. Who knows what will happen but we are strapped in for the ride.
My intake manifold crack on the car last month, that was 500 to get fixed and that was with a discount.
I went to the Ol Miss and Mizzou game in Oxford, Miss last weekend and had a great time.
I lost in our clubs match play tournament last week. It went down to the last hole.
That is about everything I can think of.
Have a great rest of the week.

|Here I go again
I'm leaving in a few to go to a conference in Springfield, mo. I'll come back on Thursday.
My weekend was good. But lets us back up to my work. I've actually gone over my days in my contract by 2 right now and it will be 4 when its all said and done. They are supposed to pay for them but I told them don't worry about, I didn't mind, and I really didn't. Things had to get done and so i required me to be there. They might still pay me but if they don't I don't care.
Friday I got to the bar at 5:30 or so and sat down and at 1:30 left, lol. I did leave for like 15 to go to a couples shower thing but that was it. We where laughing and telling stories and listening to the band play.
Saturday we played golf in a tournament at my brothers course. Then saturday night we went out and it was 5 AM or so before I went to bed, its been a long time since that has happened. We had a really good time thou so that is all that matters.
The band we saw on Saturday was awsome. The lead singer actually made it to get to sing infront of Simon and Randy and Paula on American Idol last year.
Yesterday we played the 2nd day of the golf tournament and then we came home.
It was a good weekend.
Nothing else really is going on. I'm thinking about getting a my space page we will just have to see about that one.
Have a great week.

I know i haven't written much lately. Lets see what I can remember. Screw it. Lets just talk about the last few days. I played in a charity golf tournament last saturday and we ended up 3rd place. Two more putts to fall and we tie for first but whatever. And actually I haven't played golf since then, lol.
Monday was the day that the group of us went to the ball game. We had 12 of us go. The tickets included your food and beer. So needless to say by the end of the game we where feeling pretty good and by the time we left the bar we went to I was feeling no pain at all. It was after 4 before I went to sleep. We had rooms at the Hyatt in union station. The next day we got out of hte room around noon and ended up at grants farm, golf galaxy and had PF Changs. We got home right around 8 or so.
Wed I went out of the river with friends. We had a good time. It was hot at times but you could go into the water and cool off.
Thursday I was supposed to have a softball game, well it got rained out so a couple of us went out ot eat and then went and watch transformers. it was movie. I really enjoyed it.
Friday I went to another ballgame in st. louis. A friends of my moms had two extra tickets and they took us with them. I drove myself and have stayed at my friends house this weekend.
Yesterday we went to art muesum. The Napolean exhibit was really nice. We then went on a brewery tour and then out ot eat. Watch the ballgame and the last part of the Nascar race.
I'm about to get ready to leave to get home adn play golf.
I have to work at least 2 days next week.
Have a great week.

|New Identity Theft scheme
This lady has changed her habit of how she lists her names on her cell phone
after her handbag was stolen. Her handbag which contained her phone,
credit cards, purse...etc....was stolen. Twenty minutes later when she called
her husband from a pay phone telling him what had happened, hubby says "I
just received your text asking about our Pin Number and I replied a little while
ago." When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the
money was already withdrawn.
The pickpocket had actually used the stolen cell phone to text "hubby" in the
contact list and got hold of the pin number. Within twenty minutes he had
withdrawn all the money from the bank account.
Moral of the lesson:
Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list.
Avoid using names like Home, Honey, Hubby, sweetheart, Dad, Mum etc.....and
very importantly, when sensitive information is being asked through texts,
CONFIRM by calling back.
PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO YOUR LOVED ONES AND FRIENDS.
