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

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

Let's take that time to go through those intersections WITH caution, look…Continue

decoration-day Gen. John A. Logan Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in service of the United States of America. Over two dozen cities and towns claim to be the birthplace of Memorial Day. While Waterloo N.Y. was officially declared the birthplace of Memorial Day by President Lyndon Johnson in May 1966, it’s difficult to prove conclusively the origins of the day.
