Huckabee - bobblehead

Thanks to Panhandle Poet for putting me on to the site Washington Whispers. There is a lot of good political humor/realty at this site.

There are some good videos from that site on Huckabee and others using bobbleheads of the candidates. I was going to embed some here but they dont work as well as youtube.

Go there and check them out!

Mike Leach? Tommy Tuberville?

I went back to my prognosticator Willy today to see why all of the rumors were flying about Tuberville coming to the University of Arkansas to coach the razorbacks. Willy was animate that I did not hear everything that he had to say yesterday about who was coming to coach.

Willy says that the real truth is that Tuberville is in the state duck hunting and that this means that if the duck hunt is good that he will be the next coach. But if the hunt is not good, then Mike Leach will be the new coach.

It is kind of like the groundhog in February seeing his shadow. Good hunt - Tommy comes over. Bad Hunt Tommy takes his load of money at Auburn and Mike Leach comes over.

So there you have it. Who will it be.

What was the duck hunting like today guys. Did anybody see Tuberville at the World's Duck Calling contest in Stuttgart.

My thoughts for now!

Human Touch HT-7450 Zero Gravity Massage Chair

Massage Chairs are a wonderful thing and would be a wonderful gift for Christmas. In this day and age when life seems so stressful, what could be better than to get a complete massage with a Human Touch HT-7450 Zero Gravity Massage Chair.

Have you ever heard of this. Well, it is new to me. I went to the website for Human Touch Massage Chairs and was amazed at what I found.

Human Touch has been developing massage chair technology for consumers and professionals for over 25 years. Their strength comes from their experience and strong commitment to making high quality, effective massage chairs that help improve quality of your life. Human Touch spends millions on R & D in the field of robotic massage to create cutting edge solutions to relieve the pain and stress ever-present in our everyday lives.

Man, that sounds good to me. I love to have a good massage and this gives you the best in the comfort of your own home.

Then I viewed the Human Touch HT-745o Zero Gravity Massage Chair. This would really be great. This is what they have to say about this great chair:

This incredible chair virtually reverses the adverse effects of gravity on the body! The HT 7450 incorporates Human Touch’s unique massage technology, called the Quad Roller System, which includes four precise techniques that imitate those used by massage professionals: Percussion, Rolling, Compression, and Kneading. The experience combines the sensations of hands rapidly tapping on the back, gentle rolling, alternating strokes and relieving spinal pressure, and kneading to work out knots and ease soreness.

The HT 7450 Zero Gravity Massage Chair calibrates the body frame of the individual sitting in it and adjusts according to that individual’s unique physique, so each massage in the HT 7450 is perfectly focused on the right areas of the body. The speed, intensity, location, and technique can then be adjusted according to an individual’s preferences, or specialized Accupoint programs can be used for particular types of relief or relaxation. Additional options include a soothing heat feature or a luxurious foot massage, all customized to the individual’s preference!

Check this out. You will be glad you did!

Mike Leach for Coach of Arkansas Razorbacks. Where is Tuberville?

Check out Mike Leach speech to team. This is the kind of person that I want to coach Arkansas Razorbacks.

And we all know as fans that the most important part about hiring a new coach is pleasing me.

I dont care about anyone else or what is best for the team. I want entertainment.

Go Hogs - Go Mike Leach. Where did Tommy Tuberville say he was staying - Auburn

Huckabee - wins debate!

It is hard at this time to blog about something else than Houston Nutt who went to his new job at Ole Miss yesterday and said the same things he said at Arkansas except changed the words from Razorbacks to Rebels and Arkansas to Ole Miss. - News conference sounded just like one he had in Arkansas.

But that is not what I was going to write about - it is easy to digress.

But more importantly most have declared that again Mike Huckabee gained great ground in last nights debates. As stated in this

Check out what they say about Mike Huckabee.

New Coach is a Cinch! Mike Leach

I have it on good sources from Hillbilly Willy who once carried out Frank Broyles garbage. Willy says that even though he might make a good weatherman, Mike Leach will be or is the new football coach at the University of Arkansas.

Willy has only been wrong on his predictions once since he starting prognosticating. His only wrong prediction was that Billie Gillispie was coming to Arkansas. Well, that was the start of Willys career and he has only one wrong to date. None out of one aint bad.

But watch the video below and see if you think Mike Leach could predict the weather if he were in Arkansas!

Arkansas Razorbacks and Reggie Herring

I love this guy. I don't know that I would want him as head coach, but he could sure be head communicator.

Everytime he gets in front of a microphone or a camera he comes off good and is very entertaining. Maybe that is what we need. Some of the Nutt haters say that the game was not entertaining enough. Well, I bet it would be under Reggie.

Well, enough of that. I will reveal a little later who my sources say is already in the clubhouse as a done deal.

More later!

Coupon Chief and Santa - A Perfect Match

Well, if you haven't heard of yet, it is about time. This is an online site that gives you coupons that can help you get what you want for the holidays at a cheaper price. Just think, the holidays are upon us and passing fast.

But as you know the biggest gift giving time of the year is upon us, and you can save money by visiting and getting savings coupons for those things you need and want for yourself or others.

Just think...for Christmas I would like a new chair for my office. Well, what should my wife do? She should go to and then click on the page that would get her to the Office Depot coupons. There she can find all of the coupons that might help her find the discount that would give her the best price on my new chair.

Or what about that new Video Camera that I would like to have in my Christmas stocking? (is it all about me?) Well, Santa could go to find Best Buy Coupons and deals and there you go. Coupons that help her (I mean Santa) to get the best deal possible.

Well, you see the plan. Santa can do all of his shopping and save money by going to

Maybe you should help Santa out and spread the word.

My Thoughts for now!

Tommy Tuberville - Stay Away Arkansas

Much like they did when they wanted a new basketball coach and tried to hire the coach from Texas A & M, Billy Gillispie, Arkansas went calling to Tuberville since he had been the real first choice ten years ago.

However, sources say that when Arkansas came calling Tommy used it as leverage to get contract negotiations to commence for a longer contract. Rumor has it that Tommy would like Arkansas to be the job he takes after the next coach quits in about five years.

This way Tommy would be in the state he loves and where he wants to retire as his last stint in coaching. He would let the University of Arkansas move him home in about 5 to 7 years. He would coach for about 5 years and retire.

Great thinking!

My thoughts on Houston Nutt and Tommy Tuberville for now.

Who will the next coach now. I believe Arkansas will be taking one from Texas Tech.

What are your thoughts.

Trusted Tours and Attractions - Sign Up and Win!

Have you ever been to Savannah? I haven't been there but it is on the agenda to receive a visit by my wife and me. One of the things that fascinates me is the idea that it has a ghost tour.

Yes, they say that Savannah, with so much history, is bound to have a few skeletons in her closet. With that in mind there is the offering of an opportunity to take a twilight stroll along the shadowy squares and moss covered trees as tales of local legends, house haunting's and ghost stories are told. Sounds scary doesn't it?

Well, if any of these things interest you like they do me, maybe you should visit "Trusted Tours and Attractions" and sign up for a newsletter that will keep you informed of the things that Savannah has to offer.

Or maybe like me you are fascinated by the Trolly. If so you can take the Old Town Trolly tour. On this you can experience over 270 years of history as expert tour conductors relate the stories, sights and landmarks of Savannah.

Another thing that would greatly interest me is the Savannah Riverboat Dinner Cruise. This cruise would allow me to add a little romance to the tour while seeing the river and what it has to offer to the area. This is the type of tour that I would recommend to anyone. You can't miss with this one.

All this sounds really great doesn't it. Maybe you should visit this site and find out what it is all about.

Houston Nutt is Gone!

Well, it is official ...Houston is gone. He seems real sad to go. Hope he will still have grocery money to feed the family until his gig at Ole Miss comes up.

He is a good guy -- just a little too self centered, egotistical and not that great of a play caller. Did some one say 4th and goal and Darren is not in the Ball game. Glad Felix is tough.

Razorbacks Win - Bye Houston Nutt!

Most Arkansans willthink that Arkansas is a great place to live since Arkansas Razorbacks knocked off the number 1 LSU Tigers. The next big question will be if this saves Houston Nutts job.

Many of the Houston backers will say that this shows just what they had said which is that Houston is a great coach. Those who hate Houston will say Why hasnt he done this all along.

My thoughts are - He has made many bad decisions all year and I believe that with a few different calls in this ballgame he would not have had to go into overtime to win. He could have won it early.

And one thing that I will never understand is why so many times in crucial plays he has Darren McFadden on the sidelines.

Houston Nutt - Sorry but you need to go.

LED Christmas lights save energy

Tomorrow is a big day. It is traditionally the day that I put up the Christmas lights. It is the day that I pull out the old lights and try to decide how they go on the house and in the shrubs. It is the day that I get to decide if this is the year I get new lights.

Well, the old lights are incandescent holiday lights. You know-the type that have been around for more than 100 years. These lights are outdated, inefficient, expensive, and bad for the environment.

So what do I do. I discover the idea of LED Christmas lights. These new lights use 1/10th of the energy of standard incandescent Christmas lights and will last for more than 50,000 hours compared to about 1500 for an average incandescent light. The LED bulbs are also very durable as they do not contain a fragile filament and the bulbs are constructed of a durable epoxy plastic no breakable glass. These lights create virtually no heat so they are safer for use on Christmas trees and around other combustible materials.

It is good to know in studying LED Christmas lights that a recent EPA report determined that if only 20% of American households switched to LED Christmas lights for the average 30 day holiday period it would conserve enough energy to power 200 households for an entire year.

What do you think that might mean for the future?

Don't you think it is time to make the same move that I am making and switch to LED Christmas lights?

Who is Mike Huckabee?

Mike Huckabee is running a good race for President. But who is Mike Huckabee? What do we know about him?

I know him as a Baptist Minister, leader of the Baptist State Convention, Bass Guitar player, and Governor of Arkansas. I know him as a good man who would make a good president.

But what are the background facts. Here is what Wikipedia says:

Michael Dale "Mike" Huckabee (born August 24, 1955) is a former governor of the U.S. state of Arkansas, having served from 1996 to 2007. He was the third Republican governor of the state since Reconstruction and was the highest rated political figure in Arkansas for parts of his tenure.[1] He officially announced his candidacy for the 2008 United States presidential election on January 28, 2007, and he has been running a national campaign since then.

Huckabee is an ordained Southern Baptist minister. He is well known for losing 110 pounds in a very short time and advocating a healthy lifestyle.[2]

Huckabee was born in Hope, Arkansas, to Mae Elder and Dorsey W. Huckabee. His father worked as a fireman and a mechanic and his mother worked as a clerk in a gas company.[3] He has one sister who is a middle school teacher.[4] He was elected Governor of Arkansas Boys State in 1972 and is a Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership Alumnus. He was president of Hope High School in 1973.[5] He married Janet McCain on May 25, 1974. [4] He graduated magna cum laude from Ouachita Baptist University, completing his bachelors degree in 2½ years before attending Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas.[6]

At 23, Huckabee was a staffer for James Robison, a television evangelist.[5] Robison commented, "His convictions shape his character and his character will shape his policies. His whole life has been shaped by moral absolutes."[5] Huckabee believes in Biblical inerrancy.[5] Prior to his political career, Huckabee was pastor of several Southern Baptist churches in Arkadelphia, Texarkana, and Pine Bluff, Arkansas. He encouraged the all white Immanuel Baptist Church to accept black members.[5] He served as president of the Arkansas Baptist State Convention from 1989 to 1991 and as president of a religion-oriented television station

What does all of that really say or mean. It says that Huckabee is a good man with a good background who would make a good President.

Vote Mike Huckabee!

Working from home and the home office or a business ran out of your home office is a great thing until you have the need to meet with an important client. Then what do you do?

Places like this offer a professional environment where you can meet your clients. Sometimes you need a quiet place to work with free Internet, fax, copier and phones with unlimited long distance. They offer it all.

Thanksgiving and Turkey.

Thanksgiving is a great day in spite of the turkey. You might think from that statement that I do not like turkey. Well the truth is I like turkey ok but it is not my favorite food. I like turkey because of all of the other food that seems to be present only when you have turkey.

But that was not what I was going to blog about. The word is Thanks/Giving.

  • Thanks to all of those who are fighting for our freedom - where ever they are.
  • Thanks to our leaders who I believe are trying their best to make the right decisions whether we think so or not.
  • Thanks to all of my loved ones who know me best and still love me.
  • Thanks to the people that I work with and put up with me.
  • Thanks to my Lord who has given me the salvation and eternal life that I can count on.

Thanks even for turkey because of all of the great food that goes with it.

Mike Huckabee and Me on Immigration

I am a strong opposer of illegal immigrants. The reason I am is that I am a strong opposer of "illegal". I have nothing against the people, their work ethics or anything else except the fact that we should not allow an illegal activity take place without strong action. If the people would do what it takes to be legal, then I have no problem. Below is the beginning excerpt of Huckabee on this subject. Click on the link to read more on this and other issues.

I oppose the current immigration bill that the Senate is considering because it offers amnesty. While I appreciate the hard work of the Senate and the Administration, this bill is not in the best interests of our national security, our citizens, and those who are patiently following the rules to become citizens.

Check out Mike Huckabee - He would make a great President.

Abilene Texas Real Estate!

I was born and raised in the state of Texas and have always been interested in real estate in the state of Texas. I am a real estate lender by trade and look at real estate all of the time.

Yes, I now live in Arkansas, but prior to moving to Arkansas I lived in a small town just outside of Abilene Texas. This gave me many opportunities to review and viewAbilene TX real estate. Because of this, I fairly familar with Abilene TX real estate and might even go back there someday to live.

I do have a close kin who just moved from Abilene and did own some Abilene TX real estate . It has now been sold and they have moved back to another city.

Just my thoughts for now.

Huck and Chuck - Going to Kick Rear!

Mike Huckabee is bringing in the guns now. I guess this is supposed to be good to bring in the movie star/exercise guru/kick it champion in for an endorsement.

Maybe this would be a good team. Huck for President and Chuck for Vice President. If the people didn't like the policy set then Chuck could come in with white hat and guns blazing.

Seriously - I am a Huckabee fan, but I am not sure that this helps. We will See.

Below is the ad!

Weekend Warrior - Tell Freeze It Where it Hurts!

This is a story of how Freeze It Gel - can help your aches and pains. Here is the story:

Well, opening weekend of modern gun deer season just past in Arkansas. For those of you who don't understand what that means, let me tell you a little. Deer hunting in Arkansas is a ritual of both men and women. The majority of the people that live in Arkansas, breathe and eat deer hunting and the only reason for real existence is to hunt deer.

That brings me to my friend Willy. I know Willy almost as if he and I were the same person. Well, Willy has aged a bit, you know, getting a little older and not as spry as he used to be. Willy seems to complain daily of aches and pains in his back and legs. But aches and pains didn't stop Willy.

Being the true hunter he is as you can see in the picture, Willy had gone to deer camp on Friday night as to get an early jump on the deer on Saturday Morning. For you see, Deer Camp is as much a part of the ritual of deer hunting as is the actual hunting. Well, way before dawn on opening day Willy walks the mile to his tree stand, legs and back aching even more than usual. For you see that cot at camp was not near as comfortable as the great bed Willy has at home. Willy gets to the tree stand and gingerly climbs the 13 rickety steps up to the top so he could set on that small seat for the next several hours waiting for that big buck.

Willy sat on the stand till about 10 oclock and the day seemed long and dreary. Not a deer had Willy seen, much less that trophy buck. Willy's back and legs were aching to no end. "Man if I don't see one soon I am getting down and going back to camp. " About that time Willy heard a limb crunch in the woods to his left. Willy eased around with his gun moving very slowly as not to frighten anything that might be there. "Man, that is a nice 8 point buck" . Willy eases the safety off of his gun and "bam" the deer falls in his tracks.

Well, Willy takes a couple of deep breaths to calm his excitement and turns to climb down the 13 rickety steps of his deer stand. Willy was down to step 4 from the bottom when it gave way. Willy falls back onto the ground, gun pointed in the air and as his aching back hit the ground the gun fired again into the air. This scared Willy to death, but he could do nothing about it because he was stunned by the fall.

Willy layed on the ground for about 5 minutes back and legs in misery. He thought for a minute he had really hurt himself. Well, his friends came running from their stands because they had heard the second, curious shot and thought Willy might need some help.

Being the friends that they were, they first helped Willy back to camp along with his deer. Then they began to give Willy fits about his old, aching body, and his deer stand to match.

Now that we are back at camp, I introduce Willy to a new product that I had experienced a while back through a mail marketing campaign. This product is Freeze It. In my research of the product I found that it was supposed to be great on:

Sore Muscles & Muscle Sprains,
Back, Shoulder, Neck Pain
Arthritis, Painful Ankle, Knee, Hip & Elbow Joints
Muscular Strains

Well, I had tried this on my lower back pain and it had worked great. Therefore, I convinced Willy with little effort that he needed to try this product, for you see he not only now had back and leg pain, he now had all of the above. Willy needed help with pain and he is now using Freeze It Gel with a passion. He believes that if he had a years supply of Freeze It Gel it would work wonders for his hunting and his home life by helping his aching back.

Willy is such a believer of the product now that he thinks everyone should watch the information in the video below that he watched to really find out what it could do for him.

Why dont you click on the video and check it out. You will find out that if you are a hunter or just if you have the normal aches and pains that come with life, as Willy did, that Freeze It Gel can help you.

Kaley Hill Missionary Baptist Church

This is a neat smaller Church out in the country Northeast of Quitman. The Pastor of this Church used to be a neighbor of mine. He is a great young man. I had heard that he was pastoring a Church but did not know where it was at. I just stumbled on to this Church while I was driving in the country on business.

Looks like it is in a great place and these folks are lucky to have this young man as their pastor.

Just another of the Small Arkansas Churches that I try to highlight occassionally.

Vat19 Holiday Products- Try These Out!

I received the opportunity to sample a three products from recently which are all pretty cool. The products I sampled are Smencils, Ambient Fire, and Insta Snow Powder.

The product that I found while I was looking at their website was salt & pepper shakers that hug. Wish I had received a set of those - what a great Christmas gift that would have been.

However, back to the products I received:
  1. Smencils -Gourmet Scented Pencils. The Pencil I received was watermelon flavor. It smelled great and worked very well. What is even better is that it is made of recycled newspaper. Their motto is "Saving one Tree at a time" What a great idea to save trees and give a great and fun writing product. Could be a good stocking stuffer for the younger generation. They would have fun with this.

  2. The second product that I received was Insta Snow Powder --you just add water to the powder and have a very snow like product instantly. My daughter likes this idea and believes that it will be great to use around her Snow Village Scene at Christmas. Would make a great Christmas gift - but in that case it would be great to get before Christmas to help with the decoration. Great Idea!

  3. The last product that I received was Ambient Fire - The Ultimate Video Fireplace. - Folks - this is pretty cool. Just think - you can have that special someone over and have this playing on the DVD player on that big screen plasma TV. It is like having a great fireplace with sounds of Christmas or just fire crackling in the background. How great would that be.

Try these products -

All of them are pretty cool!

Can You Hear Me Now - Houston Nutt

In case you didn't catch my drift a post or so ago ----Razorback football is a passion in the state, and the fans are now passionate about the fact that anyone who has a crucial fourth and inches should at least have their star running back in the game to either carry the ball or act as a decoy. It almost appeared as if Houston wanted to lose!

Go Houston Please go! Is that a plane flying over War Memorial Today?

Razorbacks - Razorbacks

For anyone in Arkansas that lives in a cave and hears no news, my guess is that you don't read this blog either, so why do I write. To all of you as mentioned - today you should know is an important day for Houston Nutt and the Razorbacks.

The question is can they win another game and get a good Bowl Bid - or will they just turn out to be known as the team who had the two greatest running back tandem at Arkansas and did nothing with it.

That is what frustrates all of the fans. Great talent, great ability, great athlete desire, poor coaching, poor play calling. What more needs to be said.

Termites Guide- An online guide to getting rid of termite infestations.

When I moved to Arkansas about 18 years ago, I had never heard of the need for termite control. At that time I did not understand that how in a damp climate such as Arkansas which receives about 50 inches of rain a year that a small insect could almost destroy an entire home.

It was not long after moving to Arkansas that a neighbor had an infestitation of termites in his home. The dining room wall was almost destroyed before he realized that he had a problem.

Well this site mentioned here is a "Welcome to the Termites Guide" - a guide to how to get rid of termites.

This website covers all of the basics - from how you can tell if your home is infested with termites, to improvements to make to keep them from getting in, to specific explanation of how each termite control product works and what the advantages and disadvantages of each one are.

This is a site on termite control that everyone should view.

Mike Huckabee - the Man for the Job - I Like Mike!
I expect that it will change the course of the campaign trail for me to make this declaration. I am off of the Fred bandwagon and on the bandwagon I should have been on all along.

The reason I had not jumped on with Mike before is that I did not think he had a snowballs chance to win. Well, it may still be a slim chance but it is better than it used to be. And yes, I have experienced Mr. Huckabee as a Baptist Preacher (a good one) Leader of the Arkansas Baptist Convention ( a good one) and a Governor of the state of Arkansas ( a good one.)

Mr. Huckabee lines up with my beliefs very well both as a Christian and as my beliefs about a nation - Under God!

I am for Mike. Jump on the band Wagon.

I am starting my own Blogroll of Bloggers for Huckabee. Click Here - give me your blog name and I will add you to the blog and give you the code to add it to your site.

Get on board the early train for Mike!

Houston Nutt - Gets Gus Light Award - Real Men of Genius!

I am a proponent of Firing Houston Nutt. After yesterday's lackluster performance at Tennessee - It is obvious that Arkansas must fire Houston Nutt!

A great example of questionable coaching comes when there is 4th and inches, Arkansas has three of the greatest running backs in college football today and we put the lesser one of them on the field by himself to run into what would undoubtly be a sea of orange.

Peyton Hillis - thanks for the effort - not your fault - What was the coach thinking. Put everyone of your great backs out there and give Tennessee three choices of who to stop.

This youtube video was passed on to me via email. - It expresses many fans sentiments! - Notice it is presented by GUS Light!

Autumn in Arkansas

Autumn in Arkansas is a great time of the year.

The weather has turned a little cooler and we have even had a little frost on the Pumpkin. The days are in the mid 60's right now and the colors outside are beginning to be beautiful

I had the chance the other day to take a drive through my territory. I dont believe the colors are going to be as good as they have been some years, but I did get the chance to take a few early pictures.

Here they are:

In case you can't read this it is "Half Moon Baptist Church"

One of the nicer homes in Redneck Country with nice fall foliage!

A lonely country Road!

Hill side with a little color!

November is Alzheimer's Awareness Month

Alzheimer's needs to be considered serious and all of us probably know of someone that it has touched. That is why I believe that an excellent holiday gift would be to make a donation to help find a cure for Alzheimer's. A web site has been set up to help educate each of us about this disease and to give us a way to contribute to help in the fight against it.

This is why there is a National Memory Screening Day which is a collaborative effort spearheaded by the Alzheimer's Foundation of America to promote early detection of Alzheimer's disease and related illnesses, and to encourage appropriate intervention.

AFA carries out this event in collaboration with organizations and healthcare professionals across the U.S.—bringing them together for care. Participating sites offer free confidential memory screenings, as well as follow up resources and educational materials to those concerned about memory loss. Together, we hope to improve quality of life.

National Memory Screening Day is an annual event is to be held this November 13th and I would like to encourage all readers of this blog to realize the importance of memory screening for early detection of Alzheimer's disease and related illnesses.

I would like to also encourage readers to locate a memory screening location in their area for their loved ones during the month of November.

I would like to encourage everyone to spread the word about the "successful aging tips" found on the Alzheimer's Foundation of America website.

Please not also that while seeking a cure to Alzheimer's is important, ensuring quality care for those who suffer from the disease must not be overlooked. That is why a holiday gift contribution to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America is a great idea.

New Restaurant - Moe's - 7 Stars out of 10

WELCOME TO MOE'S - you here as you walk into the door from the entire staff in unison.
The wife and I had heard lots bout the place in Little Rock but it is now open in Conway.

The line was long and slow as the food is prepared assembly line style right before your eyes.

The food was burritos and quick Mexican. - Kind of a neat - High Class - Taco Bell.

However the food was worth the wait - it was very good and the HomeWrecker Burrito appears to die for. Yes - I believe if I had eaten that I probably would have died.

Appeared to be a big ole fat 2 lb burrito.

In All I give this one a 10. And by the way it is just about 3 doors down from New York Style Deli - who on this day had 3 cars in front and probably two of them were workers.

They were standing out front wondering how Moe's could have a long line and they didnt even have but 2 customers.

Its all in the marketing game guys!

Condor Options and Iron Condor - Options Trading Newsletter!

It is great to learn something each day. As you might derive from my blogs Arkansas - A Great Place to Live, Life in Ameirca and my alter ego Blog of Hillbilly Willy, I am aproaching what I would like to be an early retirement. The problem is everyday as I review my investments and my after retirement income - the idea seems to be slipping away.

Well, many days I am researching on the internet ways to make more money for retirement. Well today I discovered the term iron condor as it relates to investments.

What does this mean you ask:

This is n advanced options strategy that involves buying and holding four different options with different strike prices. The iron condor is constructed by holding a long and short position in two different strangle strategies. A strangle is created by buying or selling a call option and a put option with different strike prices, but the same expiration date. The potential for profit or loss is limited in this strategy because an offsetting strangle is positioned around the two options that make up the strangle at the middle strike prices.

Sounds great - but now what you ask?

Well, I have found a website called Condor Options that offers a newsletter and all that you would need to make this type of strategy happen.

Here are their exact words about their offer and what they can do for you!

We provide a strategy for anyone who's tired of trying to pick good stocks, who hates trying to figure out complicated charts, and who can never tell which way the market is going from one day to the next. Our strategy doesn't care about individual stocks, it doesn't require any complicated analysis, and most importantly, it makes money no matter which direction the market goes.

Most of the time, market indexes trade in a range. They move up a little, down a little, and often stay relatively flat. The sole purpose of the iron condor options strategy is to profit from this tendency markets have to bounce around: we figure out the likely range in which the major indexes will move within a given month, and sell some options at the top of that range and the bottom of that range. This brings in a credit, meaning that we basically get paid for predicting that markets will do what they statistically tend to do (i.e. bounce around).

This strategy doesn't require any special knowledge, or any real prior experience with options. In fact, it's a perfect way to bring in income and to hedge an existing stock portfolio. This strategy was originally developed by professional floor traders who wanted to balance their portfolios and reduce their risk while still bringing in income, and those are our goals as well. Some people think of options as speculative or risky, and in many cases they're correct. But this strategy is actually safe and relatively conservative, and the results speak for themselves: over the past 6 months - some of the craziest months in recent history - over 80% of our trades have been winners, and our average return per trade is over 23.9%.

We offer autotrading with two of the best options brokers around, which means that you can have the broker automatically trade the positions that we publish. Another nice thing about this strategy is that it doesn't require much capital: you could easily follow our approach with $5000 or even less.
Maybe you should investigate this idea of iron condor

Arkansas Razorbacks? - Basketball Season yet?

I have been an Arkansan for 18 years come this Thanksgiving. I thought that I could never live anyplace but Texas. However, moving to Arkansas when my daughter was in the first grade and now she is married, working and making a great young lady, gives me pride that home is where you make it and not the physical boundaries of the state.

In so making this my home, I have also adopted the passion that many have in this state for the Razorbacks. It was first basketball under Nolan Richardson, and then Football under Houston Nutt.

Well, even though I think that Houston Nutt is still an good man, I now question his coaching ability when he goes from having a great pre-season favorite team with high expectations to a mediocre team just looking to maybe get to a poor bowl game.

Yes, it becomes a crazy passion but I believe we need to fire Houston Nutt and get on with the football program.

All I can say now is bring on Basketball.

Freelance Marketplace - Offer or Buy Services!

Just found a website that allows you to become a freelancer or to hire a freelancer for your project.

Here is my understanding of how it works. If you have a job or project that you want to outsource you can find on this website a person who is willing to do that job - for example - ghost write a "How to Book". You find a person willing to do the job. You check out their credentials and negotiate and make an offer for the job to get done.

Likewise you can offer your services on the site in the same manner. If you are a great graphics person, you could offer your services and the site would allow others to contact you for your services.

Great idea - right!

Mediocre -Razorbacks?

Well, today is a defining moment in the life of the Arkansas Razorbacks. They play South Carolina whom Darren McFadden has had an excellent career running against.

The questions today are:
  1. Will Darren have another great day against this team or will he just be mediocre because he is surrounded by a mediocre team.

Will the team come together and play well and define that they really are a good team as expected at the first of the year or will they play as mediocre as they have become.

Will Houston Nutt pull out a good game and thus hush some of the naysayers or will he coach a mediocre game and be done at the end of the year.

If the Razorbacks dont show something today - it is obvious they are not going to show anything.

My guess is mediocre in most cases will shine except that the fearsom three - Hillis, Jones, and McFadden may have flashes of brilliance. Otherwise it will probably be a mediocre game and Houston wont be able to brag that "he called that play"

Thanks Houston for 10 years now "bye -Bye"

Stupid Stunts and Good Samaritans!

Ok you say get on with the story. Well, yesterday I was out in the country making inspections on farms for my job. This is one part of the job that I usually enjoy since I am out of the office and not behind a desk.

Well, I had completed my two inspections early and was going down the road back toward a final appointment in town to talk to a man about a loan. Appointment was not for two hours.

Well, the beautiful day and the beautiful fall colors had me mesmerized and as I stared across the country I notice way up on the hill the house of a client that I had not visited in a while.

Plenty of time I said. Think I will stop by and see Buck. Well, I drove down the narrow lane, actually a dike that sliced across a creek to make a nice pond down below his house, to a set of cattle pens where I thought I saw Bucks truck.

When I got to the end of the road, I found that Buck was not there and that the gate was locked. The only retreat was to back my truck up back down the narrow road.

You guessed it. I looked off for a second and the next thing I knew the left wheel had gotten to close to the loose gravel and I had slipped sideways off of the road.

Not too bad you say! Yes, not too bad except that there was a very steep 20 foot drop off and no way to get the truck out without pulling it. Just a little bit of a slip and my nice new truck would be rolling down the hill. It was already so steep that I could hardly get out of the truck.

Well, a call went out from my cell phone to my office to find Bucks cell number. He is always around somewhere. Sure enough I called and he was about a mile off.

To my rescue he came and without questioning my ability or my thoughts, he fired up a tractor and eased me out of the ditch - no damage done except to his tow strap.

It became so wedged into the hitch on the tractor that the only way to get undone was to cut it off. Well, I have gladly replaced his $30 tow strap and even went to a Cattlemens meeting last night that he attended.

He never said a word except to thank me for the new tow strap and insist I should not have replaced it.

Could I have been that good of a Samaritan. Probably would have at least made a little fun of the decisions. Guess I still have a ways to go!

My thoughts for now.

Willy vs Goliath Google - Can you help!

I am trying his hand to re-establish something that I believe Google is manipulating - my pagerank.

Blog posts have written a couple of times about this and it seemed to help but I am trying now to prove that if Google has your number - they manipulate your site.

Please check out my post from my alter ego blog site Hillbilly Willy.

Help me prove King Google is manipulating.
