I'm going to hit the HyVee on May 3. Might have to find one of the earlier dates and hit blue springs.

I guess I could say I lived to see the day when technology advanced enough for my buddies to text me their farts. You know they'll do that.

What an achievement...

I don't see it going well.

They did it again...

Someone's been sipping off my orange juice before they give it to me.

So I'm doing my taxes and see they've added a new marriage status...

Someone please explain to me what difference it makes with doing taxes married to same sex rather than different sex?

Why would they even ask that...

What?... It's not like we get a sympathy deduction for living with a woman...

Damn... McD's did it again... Someone took a drink of my OJ before they gave it to me.

Wanted some breakfast this morning cause I'm thinking about the Smokers that start next week. They are not on the calendar yet so I can't plan anything for it. www.zarda.com/events

I don't go out of my way to find information because I don't want to be chewed out for it. My past experience leads me to believe they hate questions.

The groundhog (Marmota monax) is a rodent of the family Sciuridae, belonging to the group of large ground squirrels.

I hate squirrels... Love Super Bowl Sunday.


"If Candle mas be fair and bright, Winter has another flight. If Candlemas brings clouds and rain, Winter will not come again."

"Confusion created between two calendrical systems:"

"Some ancient traditions marked the change of season at cross-quarter days such as Imbolc when daylight first makes significant progress against the night."

"Other traditions held that spring did not begin until the length of daylight overtook night at the Vernal Equinox."

"So an arbiter, the groundhog/hedgehog, was incorporated as a yearly custom to settle the two traditions. Sometimes spring begins at Imbolc, and sometimes winter lasts six more weeks until the equinox"


The first documented American reference to Groundhog Day can be found in a diary entry, dated February 4, 1841, of Morgantown, Pennsylvania, storekeeper James Morris.

“Last Tuesday, the 2nd, was Candlemas day, the day on which, according to the Germans, the Groundhog peeps out of his winter quarters and if he sees his shadow he pops back for another six weeks nap, but if the day be cloudy he remains out, as the weather is to be moderate.”

    Various stores who carry Zarda BBQ's Burnt Ends, Pulled Pork and Beans will setup in front of the store and give customers a good deal. So I hangout for the day. Got a real nicer Smoker I fire up for Ribs.

The time in now.
Introduction

Born in KC. Grew up in Covina California and returned cause my family belonged to a religious cult and it's best to be in KC when the world comes to an end. Remember the 60's and 70's... I do...

Started working at Zarda BBQ in '78 and still work there today. Did leave Zarda for a bit in '82 for a tour of duty aboard the USS Coral Sea CV-43. Yes I'm a Shellback. Followed Ferdinand Magellan's path around the world. Alameda, Pearl Harbor, Pusan Korea, Sunoco Bay, Crossed the equator, Singapore, Suez Canal, Augusta Bay, Naples, Cannes, Rota and Norfolk. Blah... Blah...

Have more detailed info in my Public Notes.

Been working for Zarda BBQ most of my life. Work mostly in customer relations so at times I'll post which store I'll be hanging out in front of during the day.

Getting old now.


-----g-o-d-----

We are born atheist, and subsequently indoctrinated by our parents, families, our culture, and our place in history to accept certain things without question. As children our brains are wired to believe and accept - it helps us get along with those around us.

In addition, as children most do not have the knowledge or education or level of abstract thinking to be a critical thinker and challenge the really big questions. As we mature, and if we're lucky to be exposed to a good education and excellent reading material, our knowledge and critical thinking skills grow. Many of us reject childhood ideas at that point.

We no longer believe in Santa or the Easter Bunny or Unicorns - we recognize them for what they are metaphorical icons used to make a point. And many of us apply that same critical thinking to belief in god, gods, or goddesses or supernatural agents or divine entities.

I consider it the rejection of a worldview based on knowledge gained, and an understanding of what constitutes reality, evidence, proof, and rationality versus what constitutes wishes, dreams, and fantasies.

Breakfast was okay for bad cooking. For a couple more dollars I could have had steak and eggs with full service. Employees seemed friendly but their bosses acted like they had a perminant weggies. They weren't bad just impersonal.
