And I'm back

And I love my wife, I really really do.

My wife comes from a family that won't use a single nail when a dozen nails will do.  Because it might come loose.  And there was room, right there, don't you see it?

So we've had a few rodent problems.  The previous tenants weren't exactly the greatest, there were a few issues we cleaned up, and it's an older house.  It's getting colder, and the furry little bastards were coming inside. 

So my wife looks up ways to keep mice out, and sees that mothballs will tend to drive them out because they don't like the smell.

So my dear, loving wife buys a big ass bag of moth balls, finds a couple spots under the kitchen cabinets that the mice have used, and shoves them in there.

All of them, from what I can tell.

My house smells like a public urinal right now.  I'm going to drill through the baseboards tomorrow and vacuum all those mothballs out.

*tap*tap*tap* Is this thing on?

Sorry 'bout the hiatus, folks.  I got immersed in my job for just a little bit.  Your normal programming will resume shortly.

The Anal Polyp known as Colin Kaepernick is back in the news. %$#@!

Apparently this turd blossom is putting on a work-out.  And predictably, every sports "reporter" has purchased a 55 gallon drum of Astroglide for the amount of masturbating they are going to do over the next week.

I'm in a hotel room right now.  Flipping through channels, there were five different ESPN channels all orgasming over Colin Kaepernick.

Fox Sports?  Not as orgasmic, but still lots of joy-juice on set.

If every sports "reporter" got fired today, I would be popping champagne tonight.

I knew this. You knew this. Anyone with half a brain knew this.

Legal vaping did not cause all the problems that hysterical idiots want to associate with vaping.

Look, e-cigs have been a thing since about what...  2011?  Maybe earlier?  So if vaping and e-cigs were suddenly causing lung damage, we would have seen it in 2012.  But it's 2019.  And I'm willing to bet that the kids who have been showing up with lung damage weren't vaping back in 2011. 

Nope.  This isn't about vaping, really.  It's about black-market THC cartridges, and the vitamin E oil used make them.

I'm willing to bet, right here and now, that not one single legitimate vape or e-cig manufacturer can be linked to the lung damage that people are freaking about today.

So far, investigators have determined that most cases appear to be associated with the use of vaping products containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. Many of the injured also reported using counterfeit or black-market products containing THC, notably those marketed as "Dank Vapes."

"Most cases".  Try "All cases".  Again, not one single legitimate vape or e-cig manufacturer has had any link to the lung injuries being reported.  And I don't even vape, folks.  I don't use e-cigs.  But I'm a little sick of seeing brainless idiots howling about how vaping is evil when it's not.  Not one single Juul user is keeling over.

But kids getting high on black market crap are doing so.  Go figure.

The FedGov has seminars on "Forest Bathing". They actually spend money on this.

And in the meantime the Commanding General of the USAR has to tell his commands to stop traveling because they don't have the money.  But we gots bills for Forest Bathing?!

Federal employees across the government have been attending “mindfulness” retreats, complete with “forest bathing” and lectures by Soros-funded speakers. These events started during the Obama administration but have continued, even as recently as a United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service “Mindfulness and Resiliency Summit” in August of 2019.

How many military members would that money train?

How many IOUs that the FedGov is printing would that money cover?

Shit like this is why people hate the government.  You're wasting other people's money on FOREST BATHING?  Let hippies pay for that shit on their own.

Veteran's Day

And I'm brain-dead.  I got nothing.  No fancy words, no speech. 



I truly hope and pray that America doesn't squander the blessings provided by the sacrifices of millions of men in uniform.

The entire house smells like Andouille.

Smoked it yesterday for about six hours, with pecan wood.  We have about ten pounds of it sitting in the fridge waiting to be portioned up and put into freezer bags.  It's like ham in a casing, only better.  And it makes the entire house smell wonderful.  We'll cut it into one pound portions, so we can make red beans and rice, and soups, and gumbo.



The Mrs. has two hams that are going to get smoked sometime soon.  They've been salted and aging.  Time to put some smoke on 'em.  Christmas is going to taste awesome this year.
