Well, it's that time of the year when here in WNY (Western New York) that we get all kinds of different weather but this year we are getting a lot of rain and I do me a lot of rain. The Lake is up about 3 inches it may seem not a lot to some but around here that is a lot and still rising all the extra water has to go somewhere and it's finding its way downstream flooding rivers, creeks, streams and so on and so forth. It going to be hard for the farmers to get out and plant as many of the…Continue

First of all let's bow our heads and say a prayer for the Police officers who have been killed in the line of duty.............
Next, i want to say what the Hell is going on with the killing of Police officers, do the people who do this think its some time of game by killing anyone they want and then the bastards (sorry for the bad word) usually kill themselves cause they have no guts to do the time. This is just not what we need in USA. Please stop and think of what you are…Continue

Her mother is 89 yrs. old and a fighter when it comes to being sick, so she is not going to take any treatment as she is just to old to she has said. She is taking it well she knows what is going on as she still has her witts and can still get around, she goes to her Sr. center once a week and makes her lunch, super and bed…Continue
Well I am finally on the mend and feeling much better. The reason being is I had hand-surgery and I had some issues coming out of the anesthetic. During the week I was very ill and was take to the ER by my wife as I could not keep anything down and all I was drinking was water and a high fever that would not come down below 102. All the test they did came back negative. So they all leaned toward a Viral Infection. Enough about me, how are you all doing its been hot…Continue

Well its me here again and I am not very happy as I have been reading again and all my writing has gone into the trash as I have read to many articles of Fire Vehicles rolling over or getting into a accident were it was there fault. Why, because we just don't understand the rules of the road is how I take it, yes we have to get there in a hurry be not at the risk of killing or injuring yourself or your crew or others. Let's take that time to go through those intersections WITH caution, look…Continue

Its been awhile for me as I have been busy doing this and doing that and then going here and you know the rest of the story. I have also been doing some reading and its not good from what I have been reading. WE NEED TO WATCH OUR DRIVING SKILLS, to many roll-overs and T-Bones and other accidents. I believe I even read a article about a Fire Vehicle getting a ticket for going through a Red or Stop sign. I always said slow and look both ways then proceed with care. I…Continue
This is so wrong it looks like we need to do a Better and Bigger push so we can get this in the next Code Enforcement in 2018, so all my NY Firefighters we need to start now and all departments need to get in the ears of our elected people and see if they can help us in this.
Well now that Easter is over and spring is here, well the calendar says spring is here its time to see what kind of winter damage was done if at all any was done and see what we need to do to fix it, paint it or just be thankful nothing was done.
But first we need to say a prayer for all those that lost there lives in recent disasters, fires, shootings and etc that goes on in this crazy world. So lets pray ................................................... Amen. With that how are we…Continue
Well its Supper Bowl Sunday and here in WNY its a lovely day no snow in my yard and its about 48 degs.

No, its not Friday its Sunday as I was busy Friday and had to do a little work getting the snow blower ready as we are to get some Lake Effect snow here in WNY Sunday night early Monday morning. Time will tell. But away what we all need to do is make sure we have a Winter Emergency Kit in our vehicles, such things as a blank, water, a snack or something we can eat in-case we are stuck some where on the highway and its happen here in WNY (not me) but others. Make sure we have full tank of gas…Continue
Well first of all I have to say had a bad year on hunting never got a deer but saw all kinds of them on our trail cameras and yes I saw about 6 total in the woods live if you know what I mean not in my distance during bow season and shot-gun nothing at all.

Well I had a rough week starting with last Wednesday when I became ill to the point I had to go to the ER for fluids as I was dehydrated and they also gave me some meds to calm my stomach down and to stop the nausea. Yes I was very sick and I don't get sick to the point of hospital visit. I do not go to those places every time I feel sick. I have to be all most dead before I go. My wife loaded me into her vehicle and away we went, messed her evening up from her paint group and we were there…Continue
