big inhale I know this has been discussed on the show. It's just good to see the media being honest for a change.

It's a big holiday in Puebla, Mexico, but it is actually celebrated more in the U.S., than in most of Mexico.

And at the bottom of the article... a comparison of Mexican beers.  Looks like an ad for an importer.

Roary, the wild pig, thought he was all the rage, but most thought he was just a bore.

As you read threw, you find it's really all about the money [for the club]. I hope Blake rejects professional sports, and takes up a profession the actually produces a product people can use.

Barring a change of heart, White Sox veteran Adam LaRoche is taking his bat and glove — and his son — and heading home.

Some incredible testimony in this investigation. These poor people are never going to see justice, or even get revenge for that matter.

I'm sure it went something like this...
"Your going to have to speak up. I can't hear you because your whispering... and there's too much gun fire in the back ground."

Survivors of the November 13, 2015 Paris attacks have told a parliamentary inquiry that the authorities' "botched" response to the terrorist atrocities was slow, inefficient and often inappropriate.

Islamic State has resorted to selling organs from injured fighters on the black market to raise much-needed funds due to the terror group’s desperate financial straits, according to the Arabic-language Al-Sabah newspaper.

Froze our butts and braved the snow at Point Mouillee State Game Area. This was a planned bird outing by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Thanks to them for the guided drive tour.

Sad days are coming to "Gitmo Crescent". This story is confusing, as prostitution is currently legal in France.

One thing is for sure, this will help move Euro-Land into the next world war. :)

Members of France’s lower house were set Wednesday to adopt a final version of a bill that outlaws paying for sex and would penalise prostitutes' clients for the first time.

After spending a week with Linux Mint, I gave up.
1 - audio would work... sometimes.
2 - OS would hang randomly, sometimes needing a hard reboot to gain control.
3 - Dual install with Windows was so confusing.  After I F'd up my Windows partition, I figured I was ALL IN.  What a joke.
4 - ...and this was a big one...  I couldn't get my scanner to work - Canoscan 9000F Mark II.  It's supported, and the OS saw it, it just would install the drivers.  EPIC FAIL!

I "try" Linux on every 2 years or so.  It still "looks" great, and 90% of it is functional, but for regular, "Joe Schmuck" consumer use, stick with Windows or Mac OS.

I'm getting tired of Microsoft's shenanigans.  I wouldn't mind paying $50-$100 bucks for a Linux distro, if it did everything Windows did.  I was even prepared to learn GIMP in lue of loosing Photoshop. (I don't use PS all that much anyway).

Oh well, maybe 2018 will be better...

Introduction
A truck driver during the week, I take "mini-retirements" on the weekends.  I enjoy visiting local parks, feeding my neighborhood birds, and photographing both them and other critters that wonder into view. I changed my diet/life style radically in the fall of 2013, and have dropped 50 pounds without a problem.  The only down side to this lifestyle is having to cook for myself.  I used to rely on Stouffer for that...  LOL! You can follow me here on Google+.  I am keeping a Blogger web log, but I think it's become redundant with Google+ now.

I have been going to Great Lakes Hobby & Toy since... well, before they moved to their current location, about 10-13 years I guess. They carry everything you'll need to start or support a hobby. Trains for toddlers to adults. Plastic models for cars, planes, tanks and sci-fi. Die cast models for the hard core collector. Paints, glues, airbrushes. Their staff is well informed and can help you find what your looking for. If they don't have an item in stock, you can special order it.

Nice and secluded, this is a peaceful place to view birds. A must see when traveling the Lake Huron coast.

The Bald Eagle viewing is tops in the winter. I also enjoy the LENSCAP photo group that meets in the park bi-monthly.
