Like most people I get some of the witticism emails that are sent around the internet via friends. I very seldom forward any of them.
I have one that I enjoyed reading and is probably the best e-mail I've seen in a long, long time. and I posting it here so nobody has to read it but can if they wish to.
NEW PREAMBLE TO THE CONSTITUTION
The following has been attributed to a State Representative
"We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help
everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid more riots,
keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings
of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren,
hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense
guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, delusional, and other
We hold these truths to be self evident: that a whole lot of people are
confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim they require a Bill of NON-Rights."
You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV, or any other form
of wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but No one is
You do not have the right to never be offended. This country is Based on
freedom, and that means freedom for everyone -- not just you! You may
leave the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion, etc.; But the
world is full of idiots, and probably always will be.
You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you stick a
screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful, do not expect the tool
Manufacturer to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy.
You do not have the right to free food and housing. Americans are the
most charitable people to be found, and will gladly help anyone in need, but
we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after generation of
professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the Creation of
another generation of professional couch potatoes. (This one is my pet
peeve...get an education and go to work .. don't expect everyone else to
take care of you!)
You do not have the right to free health care. That would be nice, but
from the looks of public housing, we're just not interested in public health
You do not have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap,
rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don't be surprised if the rest
of us want to see you fry in the electric chair.
You do not have the right to the possessions of others. If you rob,
cheat, or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don't be
surprised if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where you
still won't have the right to a big screen color TV or a life of leisure.
You do not have the right to a job. All of us sure want you to have a
job, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take
advantage of the opportunities of education and vocational training laid
before you to make yourself useful. (AMEN!)
You do not have the right to happiness. Being an American means that you
have the right to PURSUE happiness, which by the way, is a lot easier if
you are unencumbered by an over abundance of idiotic laws created by
those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights.
This is an English speaking country. We don't care where you are from,
English is our language. Learn it or go back to wherever you came from!
You do not have the right to change our country's history or heritage.
This country was founded on the belief in God. And yet, you are given the
freedom to believe in any religion, any faith, or no faith at all; with
no fear of persecution. The phrase IN GOD WE TRUST is part of our heritage
and history, and if you are uncomfortable with it, TOUGH!!!!
You may share this with a friend . No, you don't have to. I just think it's about time common sense is allowed to flourish. Sensible people of the United States speak out.
Especilly old geezers
I just made one of my rare visits to the GGA forums this morning.
Wow! Now I know why I just visit a time or two per month now.
From my perspective, the majority of the problems come from a lack of respect for someone else's opinion. The purpose of ANY forum is to put the information out for someone to learn from, it is NOT to cram your process down everyone's throat as gospel. Some even go as far as to continue their point via email. Not good!! Have you noticed the amount of posts that do not include email address? Why do you suppose?? (I guarantee it's not because of spam). The typed messages are the easiest to be taken out of context due to lack of body language or facial expressions to read.
That was my rant for today.
Funny for today
An 18th-century vagabond in England, exhausted and famished, came to a roadside Inn with a sign reading: "George and the Dragon." He knocked.
The Innkeeper's wife stuck her head out a window. "Could ye spare some victuals?" He asked.
The woman glanced at his shabby, dirty clothes. "No!" she shouted.
"Could I have a pint of ale?"
"No!" she shouted.
"Could I at least sleep in your stable?"
"No!" she shouted again.
The vagabond said, "Might I please...?"
"What now?" the woman screeched, not allowing him to finish.
"D'ye suppose," he asked, "that I might have a word with George?"

person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for
Just broke my plan. Well maybe just a set back.
The plan was to build Henry's kitty back up.
I got into it a little yesterday and ordered him a new fan and shroud combo.
This one item will permit to work on him and install the radiator and all the cooling system.
At that time I can crank him up and do a lot of the find tuning before spending any more money. Maybe by then the kitty will be well again.
The house is getting in better shape due to working on it while waiting for parts for Henry.
Now I got to catch up on just a little caching this weekend.

I just learned a new term, new to me anyway.
as in: Whats new in your juicy life?
I don't think mine is juicy at all.

A young woman was taking an afternoon nap. After she woke up, she told her husband, "I just dreamed that you gave me a pearl necklace for Valentine's Day.
What do you think it means? You'll know tonight.... he said.
That evening, the man came home with a small package and gave it to his wife. Delighted, she opened it---only to find a book entitled "The meaning of dreams".

World of Wheels Trip
There were a bunch of beautiful cars, more on that in a minute.
It has been a dozen or years since I went the last time.
I notice there were very few celebrities there.
There where just a hand full of vendors. I seen tee-shirts and
sun-glasses. And they did not use pretty models to show off their goods.
I guess the reason for the lack of vendors, is that folks would look and think thats is neat, I will see if I can get it from Amazon when I get home. I know I would.
Back to the cars. I was looking for flathead ford engines. I seen four in the whole show. One of them had a blower, sorta over kill. There was a 53 f-100 p/u
with a very nice flathead. The way the pick-up is made the engine sets very deep under the hood. With the truck roped off so you can't touch it, you could only see the top of the motor, could not get a picture.
There were a lot of old Fords. A few 40 Fords and a plenty from the thirties, but they all had s/b chevy engines.
My favorite car at the show was a red and black 57 ford skyliner hard top converable.
We took a hundred sixty two pictures.

I'm World of Wheels bound.
I really like the hot slaw that Annie sometimes brings to the geocaching camp-outs.
I like food that don't have to be cooked, some would say eating raw.
Most raw foods are alive with enzymes that are crucial to not only healthy digestion, but healthy living.
I found a great recipe.
Fresh Beet Relish
It's a beautiful red, sweet-hot relish that would be wonderful served with a nice grilled pork chop or broiled piece of fish, or even a hot dog at one of our tail-gate geo-cook outs.
1 firm apple, cored, peeled and grated
1 medium beet, peeled and grated
2 tsp honey (preferably georgia Mountain)
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1-3 tsps fresh grated horseradish (as you like)
1/4 cup golden raisins
pinch of salt.
The heat comes from the fresh greated horseradish root, so if you want less heat, cut back o the horseradish.
I had an e-team type of day today, and it was a fun one.
Started off the morning with a flat tire setting in the drive-way.
I pumped it up and made it to the tire shop, and got it repaired. Had a nail in it.
Next went to CVS for a supply of pills.
Then to the Bank.
and on to the post office.
next a cache check up, got to go back and make repairs.
Trip to Ellijay checking on hidaway.
Pick up some goodies for cache when I do the repairs.
Picked up new tag for the pick-up.
Came home, and made out bills to be mailed.
Doctor visit tomorrow.
I hate politics,
But If I were thrown in the White House you might
hear ME Say this!
I got my imcome tax filled out today. I had to file for the first since I retired.
That is because I owe some money to uncle sam. Henry is going to have to spot me 28 buckets of honey. Tax comes first. Thank goodness it isn't due till April.
I had a friend where I use to work, that was a older gent.
He was a bee keeper when he was a young man. His money came when he sold honey. The price was better some years than other years. But he always save up to buy stuff by the honey bucket. He would say something like, I am going to get a new set of tires when I get 14 buckets of honey.
I am having to budget Henry. I am going to use the honey bucket as a
partly make belive and party coded
way of talking, so I can keep up with it here mostly for fun and a little reminder. I will be the only one that knows the value of the play honey.
