One of the smaller benefits of living atop a slight hill surrounded by pasture and fields is that there is absolutely nothing to stop the wind from sliding under the porch and around the foundation, through myriad cracks and holes of this 113 year old farmhouse. Especially on the first day of winter and the end of the world as we knew it. Damn those Mayans!
Even the Leland Cypress trees along the road don't slow it down, and the bare branches of the Post, Blackjack, Southern Red and White Oaks only seem to intensify the cold as the wind howls among them.
The good news is that unless Armageddon happens within the next two hours, twelve minutes, Spring is only 3 months away. That means that here in NE GA we'll be getting some 70 degree days along about the end of February. Sorry Minnosota............sucks to be you.
In honor of the wind.......

At the end of what seems like a long day, (long enough for a little nappy po right after lunch) I begin to reflect on the almost over Thanksgiving extended weekend.
On Thursday the kudzu wife and I journeyed down to her sister's house for turkey and dressing, giblet gravy and sweet potato souflee. SIL's daughter and newish husband were there along with daughters son by first marriage and his friend John. Big boy.......Big appetite. Also attending were SIL's platonic boyfriend and his young son. A great time.......I did not have too much to drink.
Friday was a clean up day here at the new Kudzu Grotto (I'm searching for a better name) a 112 year old house and acreage. With assignments from the kudzu wife I started early and stayed at it until late. Cleaning and dusting......those little things, while the KW was preparing pumpkin pie, cheese cake, two largest turkey breasts. (man those things were smelling good) We were looking forward to the first full family get together in the KG.
Saturday arrived and people started arriving before noon. Son's in law started the fish fryer up to deep fry some cubed wild turkey breasts. (be still my beating heart, not a piece left over for munching on today.
Georgia trounced Georgia Tech at the dome in Atlanta which looked great on the old JVC big screen we scrounged from neighbor when he upgraded to plasma years ago. Got through the game and then since nothing else of interest was on the boob tube was turned over to the teenagers to play games on.
Somehow before they left the volume had completely quit. That's nice when you're wanting people to just leave already, but not so much if you want to chill out with mindless tv before bed.
So maybe the day seemed long because of no TV, but hey, I got some pecans picked up, ensured the well was adequately covered for the cooler weather that's coming.
I did have some time yesterday to discuss politics and economic conditions with some. We're all sort of thrashing around trying to keep businesses afloat in what seems like hopeless conditions at the present. The good things for the elders is we're either out of debt or getting closer. Still we worry about the younguns, even though some are over 40.
Somehow I suspect that we'll all be judging people by the marks poised by ol' Rudyard in the coming months and years.
by Rudyard Kipling
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;
If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with wornout tools;
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on";
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!
I think we'll all know a lot more by the time next Thanksgiving rolls around.

Just my opinion
As your attempt to meet with Isakson shows, the GOP establishment does not want Tea Party advice. In their arrogance they believe they have all the answers.
IMO we don't need them. The old establishment has to fail, and will. Let it!! They have purposely let it get to the point of destruction because they have only the ideas of the past. They are welded at the hipbone with the money lenders, bankers, printers, crony capitalists, war-makers and defense (so called. How much money would they make if peace broke out) industrialists.
Power-brokerage is their business and life.
Again, IMO, we need to concentrate on building up 9/12 groups, Tea Partiers who have not bought into the establishment, true constutionalists and others of like mind.
If we become big, strong, committed and numerous......including all True Freedom Lovers on the right and the left, and believe me they are out there (go watch the Glenn Beck show from last night)
THEN........will we have something with which to compete and win. We will have to create a new paradigm in education, politics and government..........and the established order will fight us tooth and nail. Hell fire............we're all ready doing it amongst ourselves.
We are going to have to first form into tribes on a local level, committed to one another, then to the next tribe, until we are ready to form a NEW Nation conceived in Liberty (sorry Abe).
Let the old regime fall...........
Only then will the people be ready to learn about liberty and freedom again.
What say you?

Well, it sure didn't take long for the republicrats to show they learned nothing from the last election, did it?
Mark Rubio, Newt and all the rest of the good ol' boys have jumped all over Mitt Romney for saying what we all know to be true.
The democians won the presidential election because of the gifts Obama handed out.
We can't be alienating any potential votes for us by telling the truth, can we?
We can't say that women want free contraception including abortions all paid for by somebody else
We can't say that people want 2 years of unemployment paid for by somebody else
We can't say that we would rather give out free housing, food and entertainment to the socially disadvantaged in order to keep them from throwing cement blocks from the overpasses
We can't say that the poor, poor, pitiful poor in this country live a lifestyle several orders of magnitude better than 90% of the rest of the world
We can't say that it wouldn't affect the rest of us one whit that some women want to marry other women, or that some men would like the opportunity to do the same, when for decades we've worked to destroy the institute of marriage by paying unwed mothers to not only give birth to their bastards but support them the rest of their lives
We can't say that it's OK to drink one drug or inhale as many mind altering drugs as possible as long as a medical doctor writes the prescription, but don't you dare try to gain access to other substances we've labeled as illegal, because we need a war on them in order to keep our prisons full and provide employment to petty dictators wearing a badge an a holier than thou attitude
We can't say we have to support the armament industries by bombing the shit out of third world countries. We're spreading democracy don't you know. (The founding fathers would shoot us out of hand for using the word democracy)
A political party that would rather cater to the most base emotions rather than stand on principal is not one I will join.
On the other hand, a political party that would have me as a member is not one I'd join anyway!

...in several states recorded 99% to 100% of the voters voted for the democrat standing for president.
Statistically that seems a little bit odd.

Of course it's not like the gop is our friend either. Is it?

Maybe I need this outlet for my thoughts more than you do.
That's OK. It's not like I do it for money or anything. I'm just shouting down the canyon to hear my voice echo back and forth.
Sent the following out to a small group near The Classic City. I thought the link worth forwarding .
Good Sunday Morning to you all.
As 9/12 members, Tea Party members, conservatives, republicans, patriots, .........whatever we choose to identify ourselves by, we have spent over a week and a half wondering what the heck happened on Oct 6th. Where did we, or the republicans go wrong? What could we have done differently?
What can we do to change the future? Do we need to be kinder, more gentle, more inclusive? Did we not appeal to the GLTB crowd, the women voters, the Latino block, the people of color? WTH?? Do we need to join the Republicrat party? Become more like the Demoicans?
I read a blogpost over the weekend that, perhaps, may give some thoughts for reflection. It's more than one or two paragraphs so if you're not prepared to read for a few minutes don't bother to click this
Perhaps.........(and here I take on the role of devils advocate)...we shouldn't worry so much about turning the clock back; rather we might consider pushing for the future a little faster.
Then again, .........maybe I ought to consider increasing my medications. Hummmm??

Almost two month since I've felt up to posting here.
Just a general feeling that I'd better be doing more to prepare our personal lives for the continued downward spiral our so called civilization is taking down the enameled throne.
Perhaps this will explain in part why.
Cause for thought, methinks.
We continue to slowly work on the new place. We are coming up on six months here in 4 days.
Still much, much to be done. And likely much will still likely to need doing in six more months.
I was scrounging around for a door to put on the well house. The original interior doors had been left in an open shed down behind the galvanized man cave. Just placed on the ground edge down.
Termites had eaten a little on a few of them.
When I started taking the cracked and peeling paint off the one selected for the well house, I found this.......
Evidently I had the wrong button pushed on the camera. Real Tech whiz....that's me.
Can you see the close grain heart pine. Hard to find anymore. This is what the whole house is built of. If there's ever a fire it won't last 10 minutes.
Check out the antique door latches.
I'm thinking I'm going to salvage ever piece of these doors possible. Never know when I might have an artistic moment strike me someday.

Until, that is, you start digging a little deeper
If you try to find out what the real U6 numbers are...
you find the information is not available at this time.
Do they really believe we are that Stupid.

We're not Stupid.

Later today the Kudzu Wife and I will travel south a couple hours for the viewing of my aunt Mary Lou, my fathers younger sister.
This, just four weeks since we lay my uncle Jim to rest.
While Jim's passing was expected as he'd had heart problems for several years, aunt Mary Lou's caught me off guard. At a family reunion three weeks ago she seemed in good spirits and reasonable health. Of course, she was eighty years old and the heat was a hellish 100 + degrees. That will wilt anyone's cool and we bustled her into the dining facility where the air conditioning was a blessing.
She and I had talked much of some of her memories of growing up on my Grandfather Oscar's dairy farm and event from her early life. I had every intention (of which the road to hell is paved) of traveling down to her home to record some family history.
She was preceded in death by her husband Carl, a WWII POW veteran, and one son. She leaves behind sons and a daughter, Son-in-law and daughter's in law, many grand children, maybe even great grand children for all I know, and many nieces and nephews, especially one who will remember her for her courage in the face of adversity, and a beautiful smile that lit up every place I ever saw her
She will be missed.

Not many people have watched, listened or read reports of the shooting in Colorado without cringing from the horror that was inflicted in that movie theater. And not only in the theater. Horror that such an event could take place in any town, to any group of people, their families, neighbors, sons and daughters.
It is such a horror that most people after the first few days of reportage just want to tune it out. After all, 'it couldn't happen here, could it'?
From Neal; http://www.zombie-slayer.com/neal/
“Our main agenda is to have ALL guns banned. We must use whatever means possible. It doesn’t matter if you have to distort facts or even lie. Our task of creating a socialist America can only succeed when those who would resist us have been totally disarmed.”
So you see, they do plan on trying to disarm the people, and take away their ability to resist. Our founders warned us about this as well. George Mason clearly stated that ” To disarm the people….is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.” Andrew Fletcher said, ” The possession of arms is the distinction of a free man from a slave.” James Madison explained that ” The Constitution preserves the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation where the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.” Therefore, if the government does not trust us to keep and bear arms, why in God’s name should we trust them?
The government has already shown its willingness to disarm the American people in times of crisis. Just look back at the actions of the New Orleans Police and the National Guard during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and you will see that the government will go door to door confiscating your guns, even though you have done absolutely nothing to warrant such confiscations. If they did it then, you can bet your ass they will do it again in the event of another full scale crisis.
Add to that the fact that the odds are that the U.S. will sign the UN Arms Trade Treaty. We the people did not elect the UN to represent us, and they have no legal authority to restrict our right to possess firearms. Yet, according to former Ambassador to the UN, John Bolton, that is exactly what this treaty will do. Bolton is quoted as saying that the treaty “is trying to act as though this is really just a treaty about international arms trade between nation states, but there is no doubt that the real agenda here is domestic firearms control.”
None of this may mean anything to you as you may not own guns, or you may not notice that your freedom is being eroded. But it damn sure worries me. I could honestly care less if you choose to deny the obvious truth that your government is out to enslave you. Unfortunately, the actions of the government will affect me as much as they affect you. However, as Henry Ford once said, ” Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason so few engage in it.” Well, I have certainly provided you with a lot to think about. So I will allow it to sink in while I return you to your regularly scheduled programming.
Certainly there are deranged people living among us. (I suspect I have been suspect from time to time) But, there seems to me that whenever an event, a crisis, a happening is needed to either turn our attention away from, or towards, whatever is wanted by the PTB, such an event comes to pass.
Deranged............your guess is as good as any.

..just one person with a concealed carry permit had been in that movie theater in Colorado.
Would there have been several less people dead and dozens less wounded?
I think it was in a Robert Heinlein book that I first read the phrase, "an armed society is a polite society".
Do you think James Holmes would have gone to the theater if he'd thought, "well, nearly every adult there will be armed"? Or would he have thought, "maybe I'd better just shoot myself and end it quickly and cleanly rather than possible be wounded multiple times very seriously and it's gonna hurt one hell of a lot".
I have mostly avoided large public gatherings all my life simply out of a dislike of huge anonymous crowds. This shooting however will not have a big impact on me personally, but for 80 some odd people and their family and friends it's something that will drastically change their lives forever.
Always, always be aware of your surroundings, and have a personal plan for defense of yourself and your loved ones.

Why does the United States have to do anything? http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/07/18/us-syria-crisis-usa-idUSBRE86H1ET20120718
When did we take the Syrians to raise? For years we've bad mouthed Assad. Now we want to save him.
"The window is closing, we need to take action in a unified way to help bring about the transition that the Syrian people so deserve," White House spokesman Jay Carney said at a news conference.
This is Washington speak for, "we want to be in control of what happens in Syria".
Why not let the Syrians duke it out for them selves. All we'll do by engaging in a power struggle with Russia or any of the factions in that area is piss them off, waste Billions of dollars, and, probably, in the end, waste the blood and lives of military and civilian people for something we'll regret.
We certainly need a government that does less.

Is this the first major federal domino?
The USPS has been hemorrhaging money like blood from a botched backstreet abortion for years.
Is it time to pull the plug?
Anything I need to send anywhere, if it can't be done electronically, I use Fedex. Does it cost more? Yes, but I'll gladly spend the few extra shekels to promptness and security.
Like many another federal program the USPS as is presently structured is doomed. Eleven Billion each year is mandated they put into retirement accounts and retirement health accounts. That's with a B .
Wouldn't it make more sense to phase out those payments. Require the remaining employees to pay into a retirement account that they will own and control such as is the social security program in Chile. While you might think Chile is a third world country, their social security program is a diamond in a world of gravel.
What will be next? Already cities all over the country are either declaring bankruptcy, or thinking seriously.
Are you ready?

I wonder if anybody ever stops by here any more.
Seems like when I come by I get distracted by reading those blogs I like and forget that I can throw up bits of wit and wisdom myself. Well the wisdom is mostly in my own mind and the wit is of the dim kind.
The Kudzu Wife (KW) and I have been attempting to adapt to living in our new place of course. Slowly I'm getting a few things done around here. (very slowly it seems) I've gotten a few panels of picket fence painted and put up along the front. About 100' out of 400'. I'm painting them before putting them up since they'll be backed by the 12' Leyland Cypress between us and the road. If I paint one side of a panel and place it against the wall to dry on one side of the shed and the back side of another panel on the other side, I can get 3 to 4 a day done, letting the paint dry before laying another panel against it.
Finally we got a wall unit heat pump for the Green Room ( it has green carpet, which the wife isn't too keen on, hence the name). I've moved the living room furniture in there. The old living room will become in time the formal sitting room when we've found the right antiques to fill it.
We've a solitary apple tree in the yard. Neglected for who knows how many years we were only able to get the bottom part pruned before warm weather sat in early this year. I walked out thru the bermuda grass barefoot and picked one of the few apples this evening. Walking barefoot in the grass eating one of your own apples has to be one of God's little gifts.
Earlier today I did a little practicing with one of these beauties.
High Standard Supermatic Citation Military Model 107 .22 long rifle. 6 1/4 inch fluted barrel.
After bore sighting with laser boresight tool @ 50 ft was far more accurate than the guy squeezing the trigger. I'm convinced with a gun rest this baby would put a full clip in a hole that would fit under a quarter at that range. They took many an international championship back in the day. It's tapped for barrel weights and machined to take muzzle brake.
Me like.........Me want
We've had a good bit of rain the last few days. Three inches on Thursday night. The pooch is hiding under the desk right now because of rumbles off in the distance.
On my last post I mentioned second chances. I guess no matter how old you get you're never too old for one of those.
Life is good my friends. Don't let the bastards tell you otherwise. It's all about how you perceive it.

I thought I'd broken my drought here at the Kudzu Patch the other day with a post on why I left the pine limb I'd been sitting on.
Turns out that since I'm too smart to read up on the new Blogger dashboard I mistakenly posted it on Second Chances, a blog I deserted some time ago. It and another I put up tonight.
Seems too much trouble to try to move them. If you want to see you can go to http://kdzu.blogspot.com/
Maybe I need some second chances myself.

I think I was 10, maybe 11, the first time I climbed a silo. My dad would have busted my ass for sure, had he caught me in the middle of the climb. For doing such a dangerous thing, he'd say, but probably for near giving him a heart attack if the truth be known. But he was himself no stranger to attempting new things, so, just maybe, a little bit of pride that I had a bit of himself in me.
I was a smallish kid, hell, who am I kidding, I was damn near the runt of my class up until I took a growth spurt in the 11th grade. That includes all the girls too. So to climb a 60 ft. tall silo, where the steel rods circling it were over 2 1/2 feet apart once you got above 20 feet up, was something of a stretch for me. Good thing I didn't weigh too much. My scrawny arms could each pull me up once I got my fingers around the next ring. Today they wouldn't hold half my ass off the ground.
But, I was young, lean and uncaring of the height. I just wanted to get to the top. Every ring higher brought new vistas to my sight. I could see over the cow shed, out over the coastal bermuda pasture, to the creek beyond, to the alfalfa field, to the far trees. All familiar, yet completely different from my new found prospective. A new world, with heretofore unseen places to be explored. And I did.
Every since, I've loved being up high, able to see farther, more, new. Possibly one reason I wanted to fly for the army.
I still have a desire to own one of the old fire towers.
There are quite a few of them still around here in NE Georgia. Most are locked so you can't climb to the top, mostly abandoned since the proliferation of small aircraft flying around enables quicker detection and locating of forest fires, but every time I drive past one, that urge to be up high, to see farther than those pitiable ground crawlers, strikes, filling my imagination with what wonders could be seen from up there.
Maybe this explains some of my desire in these somewhat unsettled economic and political times, to think on what might be, good or ill, and to desire to know ahead of time, like the fire watchers of yesterday, what is coming, to be able to shout a warning, or simply to radio, "all is calm, no problems to be seen, wow what a view".
If I were young again..........I'd go climb a pine tree.

When I don't post for a while (3 wks or so) I come back to find that blogger has completely revamped the dashboard where these rantings and ravings are composed with great attention to punctuation, grammar and all those other things the english teachers in high school cracked my knuckles about.
All I wanted to do is let folks know that my email (which I thought was posted in the About Me section), was not.
I have corrected that oversight. This may result in more spam and ads for male enhancement, which I may need, but the fact of four (count 'em) 4 children shows that I've had sex at least 4 times in my life and any inadequacies were not sufficient to prohibit getting the job done. Of course I am well trained in the art of artificial insemination.
So, if anyone wishes to converse outside the comment section, please avail yourself of the email link.
House keeping aside, it's been hot and dry here for the last few days. Actually the dry part stretches back much farther than has been good for the ecological health of the local flora. Cranking the lawnmower automatically creates a cloud of good red Georgia dust that covers everything in the area.
We watered Kathrine and the other flowers today. I found the sprinkler while trying to arrange some of the mess in the Man Cave. Of course the mechanism on the sprinkler which caused it to wave back and forth broke on the first wave and we could only water in one direction. But the Gladiolas and roses seems a little brighter for the effort. Tomorrow I may water the Tomatoes.
I sure hope they bloom this year, but since they were only planted 6 weeks ago I'm having my doubts.
Oh yes, does anyone have and atomic powered post hole digger. That may be the only way to get a hole of more than two inches deep dug here at the Periwinkle farm.

The Kudzu Wife (KW) has been having a grand time finding previously undiscovered flowers and plants around the New Place (NP). From the large single white Iris to Tulips, Daffodils and Wisteria, to dozens of Purple Plum sprouts along with the Carolina Jasmine and other plants we have no idea of (apparently some of the previous owners were gardening enthusiasts), it is a discovery of moment each day.
This afternoon she pointed out a Manzanita. Don't know if it is one of This Breed but, if so, I'm gonna sit back and collect the monthly checks for tending it. (by which I mean that I'll not piss on it at night when I go out to water the oak trees.

You need to seriously reconsider that assumption.
Before the sun set on July 29, 2010, Diane Avera was in the Marengo County Jail, where she would remain for forty days. At one point she was shackled to a restraint chair for 17 hours. During that time she was denied water or access to a bathroom. She also developed edema in her feet. Edema-related blood clots have been identified as the cause of death for several of the inmates who have perished while chained to the “Devil’s Chair.”

We've now slept in the New place for a week. My bed is as comfortable as at the old place and no more willing to eject me kicking and screaming at sunrise.
Now however, as in days of yore, I don't have to go to work. When my feet hit the floor.......
here I am.
Having recently reached the age of drawing my sociable security (oxymoron) the thoughts of, "what if the gubbermint cuts ss out, or, more likely, continues to pay, only with rapidly depreciating $'s?"
Truthfully, I'd feel it, but it would only inspire harder work.
Eric Peters @ http://ericpetersautos.com/2012/04/06/anti-authoritarianism-starts-within/
puts it in perspective.
We've been the victims of of a massive ponzy scheme and wholesale robbery for the past 76 years. And every year the thieves grow more bold and audacious, extracting more and more from their gullible victims to the point that now we willingly and gladly hold our moth filled purses out for their plundering, hoping that we'll live long enough to be the eventual recipients of their Robin Hood largess, ignoring the fact that Robin always keeps most for himself and his Gay band and we'll get the crumbs.
Interesting reading for an early morning, but since I've been harping on it for 30 + years and still gladly find my pittance in the bank once a month, I'm as much a thief as the rest.

.."We just moved in our new house today..."
Actually it was last night. After moving the bed, the tv, the couch and love seat, much other stuff also, and all the stuff we've moved over the past months, last night was the night.
We left the old house after 6pm and headed into the east, where lurked a big dark storm cloud. Thankfully it was moving away from us, and as we were approaching Royston there emerged the biggest double rainbow ahead of us.
I told the kudzu wife that it was sitting over our new place and sure enough as we were about 1/4 mile down the road you could see that, indeed, I was right. A good omen you'd think, and we did. Then, we walked in to the house. Hot, only eighty......but, the air had been working when we left keeping a nice 72 degrees. Air conditioner out. I have no idea what might be wrong. Thankfully almost every room has high ceiling and fans. With the windows open and the fans moving the air around we were able to tolerate the head and indeed, before morning I'd pulled the sheet over me. Hopefully the people at the AC office will be here this afternoon.

.....to look a lot less like home around here.
We've been slowly moving those things that not necessary for day to day life from here to the New Place. Today we moved the gun cabinet, the filing cabinet, the washer and dryer, the chest of drawers, the kitchen table and the best sleeping and rocking e-z-boy in the world, plus most of the canned goods in the pantry and cereal and spices in the cabinets.
The phone guy is supposed to show up at the New Place in the morning between 8:00 and 12:00, which means that I get to arise early and make the trek in order to wait upon their timing. Seems to be something wrong with the service provider and the payment provider paradigm here.
The phone and internet will be stopped here on Thursday, and since we can't live for even a moment with out either will of necessity be living there no later than Thursday and likely sooner. Then I won't have to get up here, have a nice cuppa coffee and decide when to go work on the New Place, I'll just wake up in the middle of a project for a long time. More will get done and progress will be visible, if only slightly more than now.
We found a huge white Iris there today. The youngest grand daughter said it was almost as tall as her. Little surprises like that are nice. No picture.........the camera is, of course, not at this place.

Lower left back, right at the top of the tail bone. Longish drives will do that to me. Left at 9, got back about 6. Got in 4 productive visits and one worthless visit with the ox in the story of the ox and the ass, wherein I refuse to play the ass.
So no working on the New Place........I'm thinking of naming it Periwinkle Farm, because of the profusion of said flowers all around the house and man cave. I've been saving a 36 inch cut off saw blade for just such a sign, somehow knowing in the back of my mind that I'd be able to find a use for it one day.
We've had a few small sprinkles here tonight. Just enough to wet my socks when stepping out upon the back deck.
In visiting my usual suspects in the blog-o-sphere this evening ran across this.......

Posting has been mighty sparse around here lately. Sprucing up the new Old Place has taken a goodly bit of time. Not helping of course is the 45 min drive one way to get there and then back. I think it will be worth it though and since the phone man is supposed to come on Monday (between 8:00 am and 12 noon, and they'll cut the service here on the following Thursday I think I can predict with a fair degree of certainty that we'll be sleeping down there next week.
Then of course I can make the drive in this direction fixing up this place for the new tenant/purchaser. Thankfully not too much to do, just clean up and new carpet for the bedrooms.
I'm also thankful that the young lady next door wants to move out of her mom and dad's place but not too far and that she's willing to make the payments until she can get a new loan on this place.
In today's market that's like manna from Heaven.
Still we'll have the world economic troubles to think about. But, not nearly as much as I have been. We'll either have O'bama regular or O'bama lite in charge of the White House after Nov. and depending on your point of view, and the occupant there in, nothing much will change or things will slide even faster down the hill to Hell.
Probably helped along by politicians refusal to listen to the voices of common sense.

If you don't consider this statement treason, you're ignorant......or part of the problem.
There is a very good reason that the Founders tied down the federal government with the Constitution and the Bill of rights. They understood very well that government unrestrained would soon become the very Evil that they had pledged their lives, their fortunes, their Sacred Honor to defeat.
The beast has been off it's leash for far too long. Re-attaching that leash and bringing the beast to heel may now be almost impossible.

It seems that a certain 3rd year law student at Georgetown University wants all you taxpayers to help her do what it seems she does quite well, and often. One wonders when she finds the time to study.
All without offering to even give us a kiss or a friendly pat on the head.
A future lawyer. That figures......... they spend years of time and hundreds of thousands of dollars learning how to screw everyone. Then they get themselves elected to Congress.

If you can't, or will not, pay for the health care costs of the troops, perhaps you need to pull them all back to the US and not risk their health and lives in other countries where they don't want them in the first place. Places like Afghanistan, Pakistan and now for crying out loud creating a no fly zone around Syria. Will the insanity ever stop?

The politics of personal destruction are leading the US into a malaise as severe, or more so, than anything Jimmy Carter could have dreamed of.
It's time for America to once more dream the big dreams, because, if you dream big enough, even if you don't quite make it as big as your dream............it becomes greater than people in general ever thought possible.

And with great regret for my past stupidity, I confess to having been an ardent believer in the Governments actions in the late great South East Asia War Games. Not only a believer, but, a decorated participant in those games. Games we forfeited to the opponents, after wasting the blood of millions and lives on our side of over 56,000 entrants.
I have since come to understand come to understand that the organizers of those, and more recent, games, never intended to win so much as they sought political place, power, and money for their organizational skill and promotional support.
Go read this article this article. Then come back and tell me that I'm wrong. They'd never do something like that.

It's just that when I say it, spittle tends to spew from my mouth, my eyebrows jump wildly up and down and that red color in the whites of my eyes is actually blood.
So when Borepatch says it, in a more reasoned and cogent way, I appreciate the insights and appearance of calm, although the very thought of another O'bummer term makes my knees tremble and my water weak.

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it"
Notable quotations from George Santanya
Life of reason, Reason in common sense, 1905, page 284.
My generation had it's Vietnam, and the Soviet Union not only aided and abetted our enemies,
they snickered at us. Then the Soviet Union had it's Afghanistan, and we were the ones doing
the aiding and abetting, while snickering at them. Now we're in Afghanistan and the Russians
and the rest of the world, even those who, like us are buried in an avalanche of debt are
snickering at us again.
While we argue over political candidates and correctness, who should win the Super Bowl, and
why, whether Kim Kardasian really wanted to be married, the blood and innocence of our finest
youth pours out upon a thankless earth.
Oh, what? you didn't get the memo?
As anyone can read in some of my previous post over the last almost eight years, no one enjoys
a good bloodletting more than me, but, don't you think that it's about time to quit the insanity
and start taking better care of ourselves?

As the only male child from a family with six children, raised on a farm owned by two people who were Grand Masters of repressing any vestige of emotion, except for the all too often bouts of anger sparked by so many perceived and actual injustices, it was expected that, for that male, tears were unacceptable. So much so, that in the days after my fathers death 37 years ago, the only sobs were heard by no one, and quickly squelched.
Tough guy. Had seen the Elephant.
Sunday will be the 37th anniversary of his death.
I've learned a lot since then. Especially that grief and tears are natural and cleansing. And that by just telling the story, you can help many more than just yourself. But, especially, yourself.
Some people have that rare knack of writing things that are at one and the same time, gut wrenching and uplifting and enlightening.
AD is one of those rare and gifted individuals. His, Love Song to Kimberly , his sister, is one of those things. Go and read it for yourself. Likely, you'll be glad you did. I am.

Today is the 99th anniversary of the signing of the 16th Amendment to the Constitution. It enshrined into law an idea that stands in total contradiction to the driving force behind the American Revolution and the whole idea of freedom itself.
The great "old right" commentator Frank Chodorov once described the income tax as the root of all evil. His target was not the tax itself, but the principle behind it. Since its implementation in 1913, he wrote, "The government says to the citizen: ‘Your earnings are not exclusively your own; we have a claim on them, and our claim precedes yours; we will allow you to keep some of it, because we recognize your need, not your right; but whatever we grant you for yourself is for us to decide.'"

They say if you don't like it........just wait a minute.
I came in a few minutes ago from taking the pooch for his nightly patrol of the concrete driveway.
Wow. As an old redneck, that thought, of a concrete driveway, seems a little odd. For most of my years a dirt drive has been more the norm. Mostly rutted, slide 'em in the ditch, red dirt.
Anywho, scouted the perimeter with the pooch as stated, wearing my "Got Ammo" tee shirt, PJ bottoms and bare foot. How's that for the next to last day in January. Supposed to be 6o or better degrees for the next 5 days with high 30's and 40's at night. Before you know it we'll be sleeping with the windows open.

What? You thought I can stomach voting for the lessor of many evils again?
The first time I ever voted was for Ronald Regan in 1980, knowing that ultimately he was the choice of the Rockefeller's, the CFR, the Trilateral Commission and the Bilderburgers. David R. laid his arm around Regan's shoulder and said, "Ronnie's my Man".
I've voted every election since, either holding my nose as with McRino, or voting Libertarian.
To tell the truth, I'm a little fed up with the whole process. Super Tuesday I'll have another opportunity to either hold my nose or write in Ann's name.
I think my arms gonna be too sore from recoil to reach high enough to hold my nose again.

They thought they were free: The Germans, 1933 - 1945,The fact is that the US has been on a slippery slope for decades, and it’s about to go over a cliff.
by Milton Mayer
“You see,” my colleague went on, “one doesn’t see exactly where or how to move. Believe me, this is true. Each act, each occasion, is worse than the last, but only a little worse. You wait for the next and the next. You wait for one great shocking occasion, thinking that others, when such a shock comes, will join with you in resisting somehow. You don’t want to act, or even talk, alone; you don’t want to ‘go out of your way to make trouble.’ ... In the university community, in your own community, you speak privately to your colleagues, some of whom certainly feel as you do; but what do they say? They say, ‘It’s not so bad’ or ‘You’re seeing things’ or ‘You’re an alarmist.’
“These are the beginnings, yes; but how do you know for sure when you don’t know the end, and how do you know, or even surmise, the end? On the one hand, your enemies, the law, the regime, the Party, intimidate you. On the other, your colleagues pooh-pooh you as pessimistic or even neurotic... the one great shocking occasion, when tens or hundreds or thousands will join with you, never comes. That’s the difficulty. If the last and worst act of the whole regime had come immediately after the first and smallest, thousands, yes, millions would have been sufficiently shocked... But of course this isn’t the way it happens. In between come all the hundreds of little steps, some of them imperceptible, each of them preparing you not to be shocked by the next. Step C is not so much worse than Step B, and, if you did not make a stand at Step B, why should you at Step C?”
Remind you of anyone we know?

Maybe in a 401k, a private nest egg you'll use in your dotage, or leave to your wife, or children?
You do own them? Right?
Perhaps we all need to read this.
I once bought a stock. It was in a gold mining company in the US. Highly recommended by a highly recommended adviser. A long term hold, he said.
I took my eye off of it. It was sold to another miner in Canada. No worries. Then it became a diamond mining stock........ in The Ivory Coast. Who had a civil war. Whose diamonds were banned because they were Blood Diamonds. They made a movie out of it.
I still own the stock. Its an energy company. A very small energy company. In a very small country in Africa. It was never worth a lot of money. Now all it is, is a piece of paper, suitable for framing. To hang over the toilet perhaps.

About 1 hour and 20 minutes and I was ready to stick the Browning in my mouth.
God Help us. BHO and the usual suspects are certainly not going to do it.
"Kill 'em all", is the hue and cry from all but one and he's suspect.
Don't get me wrong, the worst loss I ever had was the tee shirt from VN that I'd adorned, in bold Majic Marker, with, "Kill them all, let God sort it out". As if God is gonna stop us. The old "free will" thing don'tcha know.

"People seek retreats for themselves in the country, by the sea, and near the mountains, and you too are especially prone to desire such things. But this is a sign of ignorance, since you have the power to retire within yourself whenever you wish. For nowhere can a person retire more full of peace and free from care than into his own soul."
Marcus Aurelius: Meditations
I've heard it said, "you can take the boy out of the country, but, you can't take the country out of the boy".
I guess that's true. If, like me, you were raised on a working farm, if you one time owned your own farm with cattle, crops, fences, equipment, even with all the headaches and heartaches that may have led you to leave...........there remains within me those memories of running through the field and furrows, woodlands and streams, barefoot, shirtless, not totally heedless, but, careless of the rocks, dirt, briars and critters, cowpies and mud puddles. A scrawny redneck child who could throw a rock at a field lark, and lie down against a Jersey cow, calmly chewing her cud in the sun.
And I yearn and strive to keep those memories and places alive, somewhere, down deep inside. Down where the free part of me lives, down there with the anguish of putting a good cow down because the strain and pressure of delivering her latest calf had stretched and torn the pelvic ligaments and tendons past the point of being able to rise to her feet ever again. Down there with the pleasure of watching a newborn calf flop about while discovering her balance, to respond to the lowing and licking of the mother, taking those first tentative steps, searching, without knowing exactly why, for the warmth of mothers udder and latching onto a teat and having the milk of life giving goodness run wetly down a new throat.
Down there with there with the remembered smells of new mown hay, fresh cut silage and the acrid smell of chlorine cleansers sanitizing the stainless steel milk tank.
Down there where you would watch the dawn come....first a faint grey, later washed out blue, then a bright red half oval rising into the blue of another beautiful May morning.
Down there with the satisfaction of coming in after all the light has gone from the sky, smelly, sweaty, itchy, dirty, from honest toil well done, well completed. Watching your daughters and son play with the dogs and kittens, the calves trying to nurse on finger tentatively offered to soft pink and black noses.
These parts of me cause a searching for those barbed wire fences sagging between locus posts, so old and hard that a staple will only bend instead of driving cleanly into the wood......to hold for another day, year, decade 'til the inexorable spread of subdivisions and supermarkets overrun it all.
So I guess it's no surprise when the kudzu wife wants to move away from the 'hood that I start thinking about more than a half acre lot with a used double wide on it. Almost a year after starting the search, Friday saw us become the proud owners of another mortgage.
In the middle of cattle and chicken country, with quite a few goat farms, a few row crops..... mostly soybeans, or corn maybe, if the farmer is raising cattle, no big grain farms like out West.
Just country folks, most with a job in town, either near or far.
Back....... perhaps to a second childhood, only with more work this time, and less shirtless running, a bit of dignified middle aged strolling perhaps and the shirt stays on, lest the glare in the sun causes jet liners far above to confuse me with destination airfield lights.
Part of the front porch:
View of dining room from kitchen:
The new Kudzu Grotto/man cave:
About a 100 young pecan trees in need of tending, along with Fescue grass and Coastal Bermuda grass, wild blackberry thickets for rabbit homes and cobblers.

Winding up another quiet day here at the KG.
Not much has transpired. Woke up late (7:45) as usual, but after I started making noise cleaning last nights dishes out of the dishwasher the KW came in made the coffee and cook us up some nice sausage and fried eggs w/toast. God Bless her. I can do an adequate job of it, but, it just tastes better when she does it.
It's been a cloudy, kinda moist day, with more fog later in the afternoon. We just took it a bit easy after showing the new property off to our youngest daughter and grand daughter yesterday. The son, his wife and two children came over after a bit and look things over also. Lee, my grandson is growing like all get out. Almost as tall as I and just under his dads shoe size, he bids to outdo both of us in height. I'm not sure exactly when you realize you're all grown up, but think it may be when you realize that you'll soon be the oldest to carry the name on and soon it will be others turn.
Life goes on, and, I'm glad it does, but wonder if it'll be over before I've seen all I wanna see.

Between now and November of this year there will likely be 10's of Billions of $'s spent in this country.
O'Fuher Obama is said by some to already have almost a billion $'s collected to assure that either he once again buys the top spot or has a tidy little nest egg to apply to his library and foundation which is sure to follow.
Who knows how much will be spent by the other candidates for the presidency, not to think of all the congress critters, one third of the senators and all the state and local wannabe's.
Put that way, it could be that 10's of Billions of $'s is far short of the total. Would a Trillion $'s be closer to the mark. I dunno. Maybe someone will go to the trouble to add it all up some day in the far off dimly seen future.
Is it worth it? Is it? All the efforts expended for literally years......sometimes decades, to claw and fight and struggle to the top of whatever heap you want to ascend to.
I confess that my juice's get to flowing every two years and especially every four years during the election cycles.
I rant, I rave, I flail about, waving my arms, eyes bulging out, veins in my neck and forehead bulging, red faced, frothing at the mouth, even more so than is usually my demeanor. Just ask any of my family and acquaintances. There is a reason that I'm that weird cousin, brother, in-law, that people keep one eye peeled for at any gathering of over one person. (that being me, myself and I) How my dear Kudzu Wife (KW) of 44 years and 2 days has retained any bit of sanity is, quite frankly, both a mystery and blessing to me.
I do keep the manufacturers and marketers of hypertension medication, anxiety and depression pills, muscle relaxers and massage therapists in business....so there may be some good that comes from all this.
Sure, we go to the polls, we vote. We feel either satisfaction or despair depending on whether our choice gets the gold medal, or just a ribbon for participation.
To what end?
Does the number of bureaucrats diminish by any appreciable amounts? Sure a few of them may lose their patron or their job, but their is always either another politician or maybe a lobbying group that has need of their services or more likely their little black book of names and contact information.
Have you ever seen an agency or institution eliminated?
The "State" still lives. Managers come and go, either doing good or ill, and mostly nothing, while the bureaucracy, the core of the problem, remains, immovable, inviolate, resistant to change, year after year, cycle after cycle. Get rid of them. You jest. Where would these millions of minions-in-name, rulers......regulators-in fact go. On welfare? To further increase the problems?
This is the real State, hidden beneath the surface of this public theater. It is the vast army of professional bureaucrats and the mandates they carry out. It is the enforcement apparatus that oversees a gargantuan tax code. It is the Federal Register that is too large to print. It is the central bankers, their staffs, their machinery, their mandate to bail out the state no matter what. It is the hundreds and thousands of agencies that purport to control every aspect of life. And would if permitted control even the begating and ending.
We don't vote for this; no election puts any of this at risk. This is because the state itself is not subject to our whim. Imagine if the President and all the elected officials in the entire country and all those who work in their offices decided not to show up to work for a week. What would happen? New bills wouldn't pass. The media wouldn't have politics to cover. There would be a periodic scramble over superficial issues like the debt limit. But otherwise, the state would go on just as before. Nothing fundamental would change.
And it seems that none of the elected officials have the power to do serious damage to this system. This goes for the president, too. They can often influence the way the state grows, but they can't actually fundamentally threaten the apparatus itself. The longer they are in office, the less personal power they realize that they have. The reason is simple. The system is not structured to permit them to dismantle it, even if they wanted to. They are temporary managers of a ruling class, and the members of this class mostly scoff at these people, treating them like actors on a stage that the class itself owns.
Hosanna! Eleven months and our new managers take their seats, the talking heads will tell us once more: "The system worked." Yes, it did work in exactly the way they want it to work. Nothing much will change. If you don't like the results, there is something wrong with you. If you don't like the rules, taxes, human suffering, wars, inflation, intrusions, confiscations and all the rest of the apparatus, you had better run for office, give to another candidate or otherwise throw yourself into the politics full time!
This is not choice. When we go to the grocery, we face a choice of what to buy. Or we can walk out without buying at all, keeping our money instead. Whatever the result, it is really in our hands. The electoral system is different. The store is the state. The products it offers are produced by the state. There is no real choice, only enough shadings of differences to keep us entertained. And we cannot really walk away. There is "no none of the above" and there is no keeping your own money. After all.....look at your money. Does it say, "kdzu's money, or Bill, or Sally's money........or God in Heaven above, even United States Money?
No. You don't have to look, but if you need reminding, pull a fiver out and read what it says at the top.
Do you want the blue pill, or the red one, maybe the red, white and blue one?
Choose carefully, but be warned.........Storm clouds building on the horizon.

“Where knights and hosts could not be assembled, there was no warfare afield...Ideas of using power for advantage had not yet burgeoned. Disaster and disorder did not occur...People munched their food and disported themselves; they were carefree and contented.”
Pao Ching-yen (4th century A.D.):
This seems a nice fantasy. What recorded history of the peoples of the earth show us is that as a species we are all to eager to be riled up into a mob to go and rain destruction on anyone that we're told is offending us or our allies. Mostly without much in the nature of hard concrete evidence. We didn't bomb Saudi Arabia after 9-11 even though most of the terrorists aboard the planes were Saudi. Instead we sent our drones and bombs into remote patches of Afghanistan which, while there may have been camps there at some point, were mostly populated by a few goatherds and their lovers.
What if they gave a war and nobody showed up? Not to worry, we'll soon have enough drones and remote controlled vehicles to do all the work for us. Strangely we're most often treated only to the number of our causalities.........not the other sides.
Don't get me wrong, I'm a strong believer in "Kill them all, let God sort it out". If you're going into a fight thinking any other way, you've already lost.
You can quote Sun Tzu all you want. All I need to know about winning a war I learned from Timur-i-ling.

Happy New Year.
First work day of 2012. Actually, Sunday was, but due to a good winter sinus infection I didn't get a lot accomplished.
I'm due at the VA clinic here, just outside the Classic City, to see my primary care Dr.. I was probably supposed to fast since midnight, but, damn that. A little benadryl to attempt to dry my head out, washed down with a little coffee and real, by damn, cream will just have to be accepted.
The Iowa ca-ca's are today and most likely whoever gets the most vote will go next to the NH primary, along with most, if not all, of the other candidates......ad infinitum, until we culled the herd down to the most photogenic and bland personality available.

Of course he is aided and abetted by his fellow dictators-in-training now serving in the congress.
For an idea of just how committed they are to the Oaths of Office they swore to, consider that of the Senate the vote was 93 for vs. 7 against, and in the House the vote was 229 for vs. 186 against, and 17 voting either present/or not voting.
My Congressman voted against, but, our two staunch Conservative senators voted for.
The RCOB over my eyes threatens to blind me to any calls for restraint. Suffice it to say that my money and time will be committed to removing them from office. Bastids!!
