 Notes: The San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo has been around since 1950.
 But, the whole town is based on cattle trails. One location called Five
 Points is where a drunk cowboy once fell off his horse. Spaniards founded
 the San Antonio Missions - apparently the very first rodeo may have been
 when Jose left the gate to the stable open by mistake, causing the very
 first round up (rodeo). Go figure.

 I inherited the Eldorado from Mom. She bought it new off the show room

 a new disc brakes.


 You can't get anything these days for a car like that - maybe $1500.

 You probably don't even need a car over there - in fact, it would be a
 problem. Over, here a car is just another tool for most people. Without
 one, I'd be dead in the water. Some people who are rich probably drive cars
 just for fun and pleasure, like my neighbor, who doesn't drive these cars
 much - there just for shows.


 I inherited the Eldorado from Mom. She bought it new off the show room
 floor and it's been garaged it's whole life. She still had a driver's
 license at age 86, but hadn't driven in about ten years. So, one day I just
 took it - I'm using it for highway driving. I put some new tires on it and
 a new disc brakes.


 You can't get anything these days for a car like that - maybe $1500. The
 AC still works and it has cruise control. Also, it has a kick-ass Delco
 Bose sound system with CD player inside. Sweet!

Re: [FairfieldLife] Re: What I Did Today

2013-12-29 Thread Richard Williams
Yesterday I washed one of my cars, with a little help from this dog, Spot.
At our place, we have a garage with two doors with independent
electro-mechanical door openers. That way, when we drive up to the house we
can open the doors and drive in and the dorr will shut behind us with the
touch of a button.

[image: Inline image 1]


We like this arrangement because it is convenient and safe. Convenient
because there is a door in the garage so we can carry our bags of stuff
from Whole Foods Market right into the kitchen. Safe, because once we get
inside and the door is down, nobody can rob us and take our groceries if
they were to follow us home from the store.

The next door neighbor has installed bars on all his windows and doors and
set up remote cameras all around his house. He built a wrought-iron fence
around his entire yard and has a pit bull in the yard. Inside his house he
has a little yapping terrier; a Browning over-under shotgun and several
pistols including a Colt six-shooter and a Glock automatic, all loaded. He
has probably spent over $10,000 on his home defenses. But, he has to stop
at his gate and get out of the car to unlock it, in order to drive in to
his driveway.

So, I told him that the robbers were probably going to get him when he
stepped out of the truck to unlock the gate, not when he was already inside
the house. He didn't like that. Go figure.

It also wouldn't work very well in France which I recall being very

Darwin Award candidates going the wrong way on the one way bike lanes 
where they might get offed by cars pulling out from corners that are

I read a book years ago written from the Indian perspective about the Little 
Big Horn. A doctor was privileged to interview several Lakotas that were there. 
They said that many of the troops committed suicide during the battle and they 
thought it was because of the *firewater* in their canteens. In those days it 
was commonly thought that if you are in a battle with Indians you always saved 
your last bullet for yourself because you dare not be taken alive. The Lakotas 
said very few troops fought bravely and one of them was Custer's brother Tom 
and they attributed that to his *warpaint*, the eagle tattooed on his chest.
Historical accounts show that Custer had his men on the move for many hours, 
maybe 72 , following Indian sign when he gave the order for his men to camp and 
rest. I would bet that if his men did indeed had whiskey in their canteens, 
they probably started drinking. Sometime later, scouts found the Indian camp 
off on the horizon and showed it to Custer.  A report had just come in about 
the same time that Indians had been seen foraging through some crates that had 
fallen behind on the trail. Custer was afraid the Indians would know that he 
was close and  would scatter. So he called *boots and saddles* and pressed his 
exhausted men and horses to break camp and attack. I would assume his men and 
horses were not only exhausted but probably many were drunk as well. They 
didn't stand a chance. It is estimated that there probably were  at least a 
thousand warriors and many were better armed, with repeating rifles, than 
Custer's men who were armed with single
 shot carbines and ammunition that constantly jammed and prevented quick 
reloading. One Indian said the whole battle took about as long as it takes a 
hungry man to eat his dinner.

Another western gun that has a certain aesthetic appeal are those old 
Confederate revolvers. As the South lacked the industrial capacity of the North 
they made the non-stressed gun parts of brass. But instead of looking cheap and 
cheerful the yellow metal had a gold-like glamour. 
I noticed that the movie Ride with the Devil picked up on that aspect as part 
of its look and really emphasised the golden glow in the shoot-out scenes.

If George Armstrong Custer had some Winchester repeaters it sure would have
helped! It also would have helped if had taken that shipment of Gatling
guns with him. Also, he refused additional help from other troops stating
that he could whip any bunch of Indians or something to that effect. LoL!

There is a spot up in Austin where Custer stayed with his wife and his
volunteer troops after the civil war. On our last trip up to Deadwood we
visited the Custer State Park. I've read several books about Custer's last
stand where he was wiped out by Sitting Bull. The Black Hills of South
Dakota is full of evidence of Custer, including a county, town.

According to almost all historians, Custer's first big mistake was going
there in the first place; and the second big mistake is when he divided his
troops into two groups, 208 splitting off with Major Reno; and then his
third big mistake was charging in too soon against Crazy Horse. It should
be noted that Custer graduated last in his class at West Point. Go figure.

 old-fashioned carbines. Better at long range but no match for rapid fire.

 I'm a Brit so Yanks fascination with guns bemuses me. But those old cowboy

 I find, say, a Schmeisser submachine gun, or modern weapons, utterly

Maybe number one and number two son should consider attending a local 
community college for the first two years. That way, you save tons of 
money and you could tell based on their attendance and grades whether or 
not they are ready to attend college in the first place.


It's sometimes isn't much fun living in a dorm with strangers, eating 
cafeteria food, doing your own laundry, working as a fast food server or 
cook and having no car or any money for even a date! LoL!


It could be that one or both might do better learning a vocation or 
trade that pays money when they graduate. One gal I know went to a 
two-year LVN vocational nursing school and landed a job before one year 
was over at $12.00 an hour.


Then she saved up some money and went to a two-year nursing school to be 
an RN. Before she graduated she got a job paying $24 an hour, and was 
offered a $10.000 incentive to work at the M.D. Anderson medical center 
in Houston. Go figure.


One guy I know got a degree in Pshychology from Trinity U., not 
realizing that with a mere B.S. in psycholgy, he would only qualify for 
a job as an aide at the State School. Another guy I know got a B.A. in

Wife and number two son are in Milwaukee right now visiting some 
colleges.  He was not accepted into Madison, but there are other 
colleges in the area he is considering.  Not that he would have gone 
to Madison.  There were many other considerations, not the least of 
which was financial and the large size of the university.


But about those lobster tails.  I had been wanting lobster tails for 
about the last five years, (at least), but never could bring myself to 
shell out the cheddar for them.  But on Saturday, I had it in my mind 
that was what I was going to get.  As I was going through the menu, 
and seeing the ultra high prices on things, I said to myself, (before 
I got to the lobster tails), that as long as they were in the $40.00 
range, I would get them.  Well, turns out they were $50.00 and some 
odd cents, and I got them anyway, and thoroughly enjoyed them.


But you know what's bad?  Now I want them again!  So much for

Good suggestions Richard.  Thank you.  The closest they might come to that 
would be to attend the St. Louis branch of the state college.  In this case 
UMSL.
  
 But I will be honest about it, at the high school graduation ceremony where 
both sons went, and which happens to have the highest average ACT scores in the 
city, when they announce for each student, which college or university they 
will be attending, no would dare indicate community college.  Or even probably 
technical school. That is not to say, that some might not end up going that 
route, (I know for a fact that many of them do) but at least initially that 
would not be a generally accepted option.  And I'm not saying that it makes any 
sense, but that is the way it is.
  
 Now the scenario you describe above, fits my oldest son perfectly.  He would 
have been far better going the community college route. He could have stayed at 
home, had a part time job, a car, and income. Instead we (and he) have spent a 
lot of money for tuition, room and board for what appears to be a pretty 
mediocre result.
  
 My wife grew up without a father for most of her life, worked very hard in 
high school and always had part time jobs. She attended UMSL for most of her 
college career, then transferred to Middlebury where she got her undergrad 
degree, then back to UMSL for Master's degree, before she got snatched up by 
IBM where she worked for 13 years.
  
 The daughter seems to have inherited her work ethic.  I guess they boys take 
more after me.

Richard, I don't think it's such a tough crowd once a newbie knows what to 
expect and has a strategy in place.
There's lots of good stuff on FFL, good humor, good knowledge, interesting 
info. Hey, thanks for info about latest Neo glitch. I thought it was my 
computer and or my Mom's network acting up. Go figure!

You know what I've noticed, is that when I access FFL while I am signed into my 
business e-mail, which is a yahoo account, I get the old format, and it makes 
it much more enjoyable.  But once I sign on with my FFL account it's back to 
Neo.
  
 Hey, anyone know why sometimes you might hear a high pitched sound in your 
ears, and things change perception-wise for an moment or two?
  
 I just had that happen.

This is a tough crowd to play to! I've posted at least 1000 on-topic 
essays to the internet since 1999, and you saw fit to post a comment on 
one, that I can remember. Go figure.


I'm just going to have to step up to the plate and get some smarts and 
improve my comprehension. I could really use some help with my comma 
splices. LoL!

 Richard, today I've been in airports, making my way back to FF.
Two hour delay at BWI which lead to a 4 hour delay at Detroit. But
I meditated at Detroit's Religious Reflections Room! Now I'm here
and sometimes watching people. Keep up the good work (-:

Ann commented:

 This is, perhaps, a step up from the menu listing of past dinners recently
ingested. Thank God for small mercies.

Visited any good kindergarten classes recently? Show 'n' Tell can be fun.*

Hey Em, I know. I can tell from your past posting that you love the ocean and 
the elements and the walks where the spray hits you in the face and you can 
smell the brininess of the sea. You seem to take many ocean walks and no doubt 
your dog is running with you in the sand and having a glorious time and when 
you return to your home you feel invigorated and cleansed by the stinging air 
and the exhilaration of it all. Glad you could appreciate the picture without 
gettingtoo hung up with how much I look like a Nazi. (As you would say smile.)

 Hey Share, here is somewhere I went this last weekend and the breakers were 
spraying salty droplets and the mist was blowing in and the sand was hard and 
wide. You can tell from my face that I am loving it.

Soon, Richard, I'll be going to the Whole Foods in Annapolis. They have TWO 
kinds of quinoa concoctions at the salad bar. How many different kinds of 
quinoa salad does your Whole Foods have?
PS I LOVE these photos of the different places you visit or drive by!
