I feel this way sometimes too.......

We have been babysitting our 5 year old grandson since Monday, he has been under the weather and taking an antibiotic. Granny asked him yesterday if he is feeling better and he replied, "yes I am better, but my butt sure is tired of pooping so much." :S Kinda sums it up for me too...........

RE: Anyone here prepaid for a funeral?

Oaklevel, I think most states have some type of Funeral Directors and Embalmers Board like we do in Arkansas. This Board oversees the Funeral Home business and steps in when a Funeral Home goes under, so to speak. That being said, if all pre-paid plans are like the one we have, it is actually just a Life Insurance policy that is pre-paid to cover the cost of whatever you plan for and can be changed by the family at the time of the funeral by just paying for any additional cost at the time of service. All the Funeral Home does is agree to do whatever you plan for at todays price later down the road, it just locks them in at a set cost, and with ours it would have covered a vault and opening and closing if we had needed it. Here, we recently had a Funeral Home closed down by the State Board, any pre-paid plans were taken over by the State Insurance Board and they found another Funeral Home to take over the pre-paid plan for the old Funeral Home. No one lost their plans, just changed the name of the Funeral Home to be paid on the Insurance policy. There is really no need to fear over losing money or being left in the cold later, like I said most plans are just Life Insurance policies with the Funeral Home being the beneficiary.

RE: Tide Laundry Bar soap?

In many under developed countries, bar soap is very common. Washing clothes on a scrub board or rocks, bar soap is used. I saw it a lot in Honduras, Nicaragua and other Central American countries. It was usually circular, about six inches long and 3 or 4 inches in diameter.

RE: Anyone here prepaid for a funeral?

Yes, we did both of ours a couple of years ago. We planned all of it, place where service will be held, music to be played, cremation, containers for remains, all we will need. We will both go to the State Military Cemetery and have the approval letter from them to use later. Our two middle aged children would not even sit down to discuss the eventual need for a funeral for us, so we did it and now it is all paid for, all anyone has to do is contact the local Funeral Home when the time comes and they handle it from there. Only thing left to do is write our own obituary, which we plan to do.........

RE: My Dear Wife is a WINNER

Coolbreeze01 beat me to it, diced tomatoes and green chili peppers in a can. It is necessary to have a well stocked pantry with a can or two of "Ro-tel" sitting next to the Spam!!!!! :W

RE: My Dear Wife is a WINNER

Sorry Crowe, she does not have a secret recipe, she is a just a "dump" cook, dump a little of this, a lot of that. She uses the dry chili seasoning off the shelf, adds browned lean ground beef, tomato juice, can of Rotel, a can of diced tomatoes, a can of pinto beans, drained, and then adds dry chili powder until it tastes right to her. She makes it in the crock pot. It does not set you on fire, but has a nice spiciness to it. She probably would not have won if I had not tasted it and told her to add some more chili powder, the last little bit won it for her I am sure......:B

My Dear Wife is a WINNER

Things are kind of slow around here, with all the ice and snow....... Last week some of the ladies at Church decided to have a Chili Cook-off in support of a local Women's Shelter. They asked for entrants to sign up for the cook-off and then have a potluck supper asking for donations for the Shelter. Thirteen people entered the cook-off my DW included. All she wanted to do was make a pot of Chili for the potluck, not expecting to win. Several of the "Men Chefs" started bragging about their world famous chili and all the secret ingredients in their chili. Four judges tasted the chili in a blind taste test. My DW won hands down across the board with all the judges. She was the most surprised of all, winning a 18" high trophy and bragging rights for the next year. I must now address her as "Your Highness" and refer to her as the "Chili Queen"........

My new Diet Plan

It started last September. I have a full set of Dentures, I am retired and piddle around the house most of the day, so I figured if I didn't put my dentures in, I could not eat a lot of things, so I just leave them out..... So far I have lost 22 pounds...:B

RE: What is your favorite Christmas music?

First choice is any traditional songs, second is TSO, I have all of their CDs. Side note, if I hear anything from "Blue Christmas" by Elvis, I leave the room!!!!!!!! Years ago I worked retail and the Store manager played the Blue Christmas 8 track tape ALL DAY LONG, 12 hours a day, every day, from Thanksgiving until after Christmas was Elvis. One night I was the Manager in charge, I had heard all the Elvis I could stand. As soon as "I'll have a Blue Christmas....." started, I went in the office, ejected the 8 track and pulled about ten feet of the tape out of the cassette, crumpled it up and put it on his desk. The next day I told him the player ate the tape and that was all of Elvis that year.....

Grandson wants to know.......

GS, five years old, asked me this morning: "Bimp, (that's my grandfather name), was you alive when dinosaurs walked on the earth?" "No Sawyer, they were gone about a week or so before I was born." Grandkids keep you feeling so young...............

College Bowl game, are you going?

Slow week on the site, College Bowl games are getting ready to kick off, any of you going to a Bowl game this season? I think I heard or read that there are some 38 Bowl games around the country. I was surprised that Arkansas was invited to the Texas Bowl in Houston this year. I assumed they would end up in either the Liberty Bowl in Memphis or the Bowl in Shreveport. When I heard that the opponent would be the Texas Longhorns it made sense to me then. I called my friend and we decided to go to Houston, a local Tour Bus company was offering a two night hotel stay, game ticket and bus ride for the sum of $395 a person, (double occ.), and we signed up! The last time we played those gravy sucking Longhorns was in the Cotton Bowl about eight years ago, and beat them up. Both teams are 6 and 6 this year, Coach Strong, (an Arkansas native), are both rebuilding with teams that finished strong at the end of this year. I saw a blurp on the local news that besides the Championship Bowl series, that the Texas Bowl was the hottest selling ticket this year for a Bowl game. Anyone else going to a Bowl Game????????????

RE: Canned Ham ??

Super Dave, our Church does the same thing and most of the time all I can find are one or two pound cans, we just buy as many as we can and put several in the box for larger families. Have you tried any of the Dollar General or Family Dollar Stores, that is usually where I end up buying the DAK brand of canned ham....

Congrats to Ohio State Football!!!!

Yesterday, the Annual Broyles Award presented to the top Assistant Coach in the nation was awarded to OC Tom Herman of OSU. This award started in 1996 to honor Asst. Coaches from all over. 40% of past winners or finalists (5 each year), have gone to be Head Coaches in the College or Pro ranks. Coach Herman had a tough job this year, loosing 2 starting QBs and having another ready to step in and do a great job in the Conference Championship game!!!

RE: Making a Doctor Appt. at the VA

I didn't intend to cause any confusion with my post, but Grey Mountain and Old Biscuit provided all correct information on the subject. I am rated at 80%, "service connected" disability. I won't go into all the details, but it is all related to my active duty service years ago. I will be 65 in a couple of months, I received a notice from SS a month ago or so and had to fill out paperwork to either sign up or decline Medicare, I declined because of the fact that I have the VA for medical treatments and because of my "service connected" rating, I will be treated free at any VA Medical facility, UNLESS, my status changes. I do not know how Tri-care works, I did not retire from the military. Like Grey Mountain suggests, get the VA Benefits Handbook at any VA office or search online at www.va.gov to search for any further information. As far as travel pay is concerned, It depends on how far you live from a VA facility. In my working life, I worked just a half mile from the Medical facility and usually went from work to an appointment and back, and did not feel right taking travel pay. When I retired, I started filing the voucher for travel pay.

RE: Bear loads for Colt .45

down home, I think if you are shooting at a bear and did not drop him with the first round, by the time the pucker factor is gone, you then notice any pain in the gun hand, fear dulls a lot of pain sometimes until the threat is over. JMHO, and some experience...............

Making a Doctor Appt. at the VA

Not complaining at all, just found it a little amusing after the call. Received a letter the other day from the VA, said it was time to call for my semi-annual visit. I am retired, lots of time on my hands, so no big deal about time or date of visit. I qualify for free medical care from VA, I have a service connected disability and it is free for the rest of my life. I have always had at least a six week wait from the time I call until the actual visit, its been that way for several years. I call the number for an appointment, I am on hold for 15 minutes, I timed it. Appointment Desk answers and I give them my information. I tell the lady I need a visit with the Primary Care Dr., just give me an appointment on first available date. SHE: "Due to changes in procedure, you have to give me a date you desire." ME: "Just the first thing that is available please." SHE: "I can't do that, just give me a desirable date for your appointment." ME: "OK, how about December 15th at 9:00AM?" SHE: "The clinic is closed that day." ME: "when will it re-open?" SHE "We do not have an open date until January 12th." ME "That's what I asked for when I called." SHE "Do you want that date?" ME "Daaahhhh" I don't mind using the VA, its free and I meet some interesting people there, I want to meet the person that started this new procedure...........

How about some SEC football talk....

I am on my way this weekend to see the Number ONE football team in the nation. The Razorbacks are playing the Bulldogs in Starkville Saturday. This will be my first SEC roadtrip to another school, looking forward to the game. I have never watched a Number One team live before either! After Arkansas, MS State have been the team I have watched since Arkansas joined the SEC, always a well coached team to watch. Not that I think Arkansas has a chance to win, but if they do, I can say I was there!

RE: All I wanna know...

Dog Folks, Chopper Bill, it is simple, just sign up on Consumer Cellular and buy their cheap flip phone. That is what the DW and I did a couple of years ago, it drives the grandkids crazy that they actually have to TALK to us on the phone, that alone is priceless.......:B
