Christmas In Arkansas

Christmas in Arkansas would always be better if it were white. However, it only comes around every several years. Some of Arkansas did get a white Christmas but very small portions and for only a short time.

But now Christmas is over and the time is going forward into the New Year. New Year's resolutions and new work goals are coming. Old goals are checked and possibly not met.

High expectations come from previous years performance without the realization that each year and each segment of the economy is different.

Take on the goals. Take on the resolutions.

Life in Arkansas is good and Christmas will come again!

Get Your Holiday Cards Soon!

Personalized Holiday Cards are a great way to correspond with friends, family and business clients during the holiday season. What is even better is that this company not only has the current holiday cards but that they have cards that can be used year round.

How many times do you find yourself thinking that individually or for your business you need to get somewhere to buy that special birthday card, holiday card or just an all occasion card. Well this might be your answer. This site can provide you with the necessary cards for each and every time that you might need a card. They have them even in assorted boxes so that you have a variety to choose from. That is a very appealing part of their service.

What is even more exciting about is that they are contributing items to the care package being sent to troops overseas through 'Operation Gratitude'. What can be a better idea than to buy the cards that you need and for that purchase to be something that would be a giving act to support our troops in other countries.

What more could you want than to have a good selection of holiday and all occasion cards and to give back to those that keep us free. This is something that needs to be bookmarked and used year round.

Hope you find this useful in deciding about your Holiday and year round cards.

Mt Magazine.

I've been thinking lately of the need to make the trip to Mt Magazine. I live only a couple of hours away and have never been there.

They say it has a first class lodge and is a beautiful place to visit. A fantasy idea would be to go up for a long weekend and get snowed in on the mountain. Could there be anything more beautiful than being secluded on the highest point and in one of the best lodges in Arkansas.

Just a thought. Lets go and let it snow.

Coach Petrino

Well, the rumors have started. Coach Petrino is leaving Arkansas Razorbacks and is heading to the Auburn Tigers. That is if Will Muschamp does'nt get there first.

Muschamp has a house in Auburn that has been for sale for a long time and has recently came off of the market. Does he think he is moving back. Isn't he the "coach in waiting" at Texas making about $900,000. I guess an offer of head coach now for about 3 million might be better.

Who will it be - Oh who will it be?

Those are my thoughts for now.

Ebel Watches - Great Watches

Wow! To own an Ebel Beluga watch. How great would that be. You should know that it is a privilege to be in the presence of any of the ebel mens watches.

To own one of these watches would truly be a privilege. Just look at the picture of the watch to the right. To start with it is an excellent time piece. But more than that it is an excellent piece of men's jewelry. Anyone who considers themselves to be a person of distinction would be proud to be seen with an ebel mens watches.

Rugged, yet sophisticated and stylish, an Ebel Beluga is something that would set you apart as a person of distintinction. Yes, one who people will flock to because it is obvious you have class and style.

Do you want to be the person that a woman might look at and say WOW. They may not even realize that it is because you wear the watch that distinguishes you as a stylish person. They may just see a stylish person because you are wearing the clothing and jewelry of distinction.

Try out the watches on their website. Find out how you can be "that person" that others admire and want to be like. Join the forcees that wear Ebel Beluga and you will be "the one"

What the Cell Phone sees

Took this picture with the cell phone a few days ago. It is not as evident in the picture as it was live. There is a low cloud about 30 ft off the ground.

If you look to the right of the flag you can see the cloud/fog in the air. It was kind of an eerie feel looking at it.

Snow in Central Arkansas?

Yesterday was cold and dreary. Out to Church and to lunch and then to home was very miserably cold. The cold rain with wind seemed to make the day even worse.

This did not last long but seemed to hurt the body that is getting older more than it used to.

The weatherman said that their was a short spurt of snow in the area.

Did not see it but wished I had. Snow is pretty and soothes the feelings toward the harsh wind and cold rain.

Next Year!

Well, Arkansas fans there is always next year - no bowl game this year. Come on Bobby Petrino lets get it going.

By the Way Houston - Where is your problem?

A bewildered Arkansas Fan!

By the way in an NFL game today with two Arkansas Razorbacks playing - How many touchdowns were scored by these two and who were they?

Give me the answer and and I will give you a virtual dime - won't by the same cup of coffee that a real dime won't.

Did that make sense.

Arkansans Unite - Help Provide Christmas for Payatas!

The people of Arkansas are a generous people who live in a beautiful and wonderful state. The people of Arkansas have had many natural disasters over the past couple of years and people have always come to the rescue to help.

Now it is time again that Arkansans can help a great cause. The cause is Christmas For Payatas.

Join many others in helping those children who are desperately in need. This need is an area in the Philippines better known as The landfill in Payatas. It is notoriously known the world over as Smokey Mountain. For over 35 years, the smoking dump site has grown to become a stark and heart-tugging reminder of the desperate conditions of humanity.

Everyday children scavenge through newly arrived trash to find something to sell. The earnings are small and not enough to even buy food for the day.

In 2000 heavy rains caused a mudslide at the dump and took many lives.

Give it up now - think about your children. Can this be helped? Yes! Donate to this cause and relief can be just a little closer for these children.

Join this charitable cause along with many celebrity contributors from the sports and entertainment world.

View the video about this deploring situation!

Do or Die for Razorbacks!

The old cliche holds true today for the Arkansas Razorbacks. They play Mississippi State today in a game that must be one if they plan to keep their bowl possibilities alive. Of course if they win this one they still have to Beat LSU to get bowl eligible.

Beating Mississippi State should not be that hard for a decent team, but I am not sure today that Arkansas is yet a decent team. They have questions this week as to whether Casey Dick or Nathan Dick will start at quarterback. The coach says he would not disclose until they had left Fayetville so the players could not talk to the media about it.

The next game LSU is always a tough one. However, they are not that good this year and can be taken. We will see today!

University of Central Arkansas - Bears

Funny Story heard today. Don't know if it is fact or fiction.

The UCA quarterback is Nathan Brown. He is an excellent quarterback and has put up some impressive numbers this year as the Bears look to win a Conference Championship that they can't be acknowledged for because they are still a provisional member of Division 1 Football.

Story is that there is a UPS truck sitting near the end of the field with the logo on it "What Can Brown Do for You!" at each home game.

Pretty cool if true. If not maybe it should happen!

Stobys - Conway

Ok! I just posted a review about where I ate at tonight. Well, I shouldn't admit this but this morning my wife was going in late to work and talked me into doing the same. We took the extra time to eat out at breakfast, something we rarely do.

We chose Stobys restaurant which is a little hole in the wall sandwich shop. They have one of the best breakfasts going. Again, a little pricey but very good.

Biscuits and Gravy for the wife. Eggs over easy, hash browns, biscuit gravy and jelly for me. Very good.

8 out of 10 Stars.

Fish House - Conway

OK! You might wonder if we ever eat at home. Well we do sometimes, but when there are just two of us and we are very compatible on what we like, it is just easier to eat out. Besides this way I don't have to do the dishes. Also, we split dishes many times and get out pretty light.

Tonight we ate at the Fish House. This is a regular couple of times a month sort of thing. Good fried fish, great hush puppies and soft serve ice cream.

We both got the child's portion fish tonight with a baked potato and had plenty to eat. Not sure how one piece of fish and a baked potato fill me up but it does after eating some of the best hush puppies ever.

Well, the only thing is that it is a little pricey but it is really good.

This place gets an 8 out of 10 stars on the rating scale.

Exotic Fish from Reef Hot Spot

I have never really taken an interest in aquariums or fish in bowls but I have recently taken an interest in scuba diving. This has allowed me to see some interesting fish and after seeing these in the wild I am thinking that it might be neat to have them at home.

Can you imagine each day getting to feed and look at your own Annularis Angel fish or maybe a
Black Cap Jawfish. There is nothing more beautiful than this type of fish. The colors are awesome and their activities are interesting to watch.

Or maybe it is a Blue Spot Jawfish that you might want. This along with the other fish mentioned and many more can be found at

From this site you can get fish, live coral, live rock and lots of information. So if you are like me and long to be in the deep and see the fish life but can't get there, then this site is for you.

Or if you are just the enthusiast who loves fish in a tank then this site is for you too. This site has everything that you might need in the area of saltwater fish aquariums or the needs thereof.

Check it out you will find what you want!

Restaurant Reviews

Razorbacks - this Week

Well the hogs have a chance of "Winning" one this week. They play Mississippi State who is worse than the Hogs are. The optimist in me says - Next year and the next year are going to be good. I really do believe that Bobby Petrino is on the right track and is bringing glory back to the Hogs.

He is no rah - rah person - just a "get er done" person.

Go Hogs!

Faby's Mexican Restaurant - Conway

As a part of my blog about Arkansas I try to write a review on restaurants that we eat at. I forget to follow up on this as we eat at several local and others as we move around the state.

One of the restaurants that I consider a hidden diamond is Faby's. They call it Mexican and International cuisine but it is basically a Mexican Restaurant.

The thing about this place is that they actually give you too much food. For Example the wife and I ate their this evening she had an "enchilada al carbon" ala carte. I had the special which was "Taco Locos"

The wifes was a large enchilada with a roast type meat and good sauce over it.

Mine was two large flour tortillas rolled and stuffed with Beef, chicken and shrimp fajita meat along with peppers and onions. Seasoned to perfection. It also came with rice and beans along with guacomole on the plate and a small white cheese dip.

This was enough to fill up two people in itself. However, they also bring you the regular chips and hotsauce - their's is unique - and then they bring you out a small cup of the soup of the day. Sometimes bean, sometimes tortilla, sometimes green enchilada soup but always good soup.

Oh yes when you finish they bring out a small piece of the dessert of the day.

The only thing that could be better is if you chose the soup and dessert. However, it is what they have and is always good.

Almost forgot to mention that their home made tortillas are to die for!

We did all of this with drinks for less than $14.00 total.

A Bargain in itself. - Now excuse me while I stretch out in the recliner - Man I am full.

Freedom Debt Relief

Debt Relief - is there really such a thing. We all seem to have a tendency to get ourselves into debt but can never really conquer the idea of relieving that debt. Well, there is a claim to help this problem. Here it is -

They say that their "Debt Reduction Program" Is something that is an innovative solution. They say that Consumers struggling with large debts and those who need relief form that debt can surely benefit from their program.

How do they do this you might ask? Well they say that they use debt negotiation and their goal is to greatly decrease your debt level. They say that they would like to save you money and do it in the shortest amount of time possible. They would like to help you get debt free!

Their program seems to be more than just simple Consumer Credit Counseling. Their goal is to protect you from the major impact of filing bankruptcy. They believe that they have the best solution for most of the consumers that have debt problems.

So as stated in the beginning if you are serious about needing and wanting Debt Relief then you need to contact these people. Their contact information is on the site and this information may possibly be your start of a new future in managing your debts.

That is my thoughts on the subject.

Arkansas Razorbacks - Basketball - Football?

Well Football is winding down only a few more games to go and the Hogs probably will not be bowl eligible at the end. Oh Well! There is always next year.

So what about Hog basketball? Only two players with SEC experience on the team and the first game is tonight. But they say the Pelphry has some really good talent. A new point guard that is supposed to be real good is now on the team. There is also a couple of great shooters and a big man.

Only time will tell. Go Hogs!

Beautiful Lawn All Year - Yes!

I have always thought that it would be great to have synthetic grass. Yes, I am talking about a lawn that you don't have to mow all of the time. You know - an artificial lawn.

If I had a synthetic lawn I would have a great look that would please the wife and please me as well. No more edging, weed eating or just plain working in the yard. How great would that be. Yes, I would have more time to be on the golf course. Or maybe I could just put a putting green also.

Well, simply put, FieldTurf™ is the best synthetic turf on the market. It is supposed to be the closest alternative to natural grass landscaping that exists. EasyTurf, the provider of FieldTurf for Southern California, is the ONLY synthetic grass choice for your home or business.

Here is what they say about it-----

* Most Realistic Turf Available
* Long Life Expectancy
* Pays For Itself In Water & Maintenance Savings
* Great For Pets
* Environmentally Friendly
* Drains Better Than Real Grass
* Professional Service With An Unrivaled Warranty

Again, how great would all of that be. Less work, consistent look and an appealing landscape that will make you the envy of the neighborhood.

Life can't get any better than this. Everyone should check this out. All of the features are on their web site. Just follow the links.

That is my thoughts for now.

Autumn in Arkansas

If you want real evidence that Arkansas is a great place to live you simply would have had to take a drive down one of the roads that led you through the beautiful trees changing to fall colors in Arkansas. Sometimes it lasts only a brief time but it is beautiful.

Lost without my Nikon Binoculars

It was going to be a calm day, a typical day in which I was going to go look at a piece of real estate that I was to make a loan on. The land was in the northwest section of my territory. An area that most would say was in the "boonies". It was actually a great piece of hunting ground in the Ozarks of Arkansas.

I was to view the land at about noon - take about an hour and then move on to a loan closing that was in the southeast part of my territory. Needless to say, the shortcut method of getting from the "boonies" back to the civilized area for a loan closing seemed to be the best method. One in which it appeared it would be relatively easy to complete in the alloted time frame.

Well, to acomplish this task, I had along with me my trusty Garmin GPS and Nikon Monarch and Trailblazer Binoculars. I had told the GPS my route and expected nothing but perfection in traveling the backroads but if nothing else I could see forever with my great Nikon Binoculars.

I left the boonies at about 1:00 pm about 15 minutes later than I attended. I set in motion the GPS tracking. It began to lead me like a pro to my final destination.

Or was it?

Just a minute - let me take out my trusty
Nikon All Terrain Binoculars (ATB) which by the way is a binocular line that has earned a reputation among serious hunters for precision optics, great ruggedness and incredible value.

Let me look and see what I can see with these great binoculars. Yes, I believe I am still on the right track because I can see so far in the distance with these great binoculars.

The paper map had indicated that I could have back traveled about 7 miles on the dirt road, taken a highway about 4 miles and then headed south on a fairly well traveled small highway for about 40 miles to my final destination.

But wait the trusty GPS indicated I could save a great deal of time by not back tracking but taking the dirt road only a few miles further down and soon hook up with a smaller highway that would eventually take me to my destination.

I took the trusty route of the GPS after looking through this great set of Nikon Monarch and Trailblazer Binoculars which by the way
is currently giving out Gift cards for Nikon Pro Gear, allowing you to get some cool gear for no additional cost. You get a $50 gift card when you purchase one of the Monarch ATB binoculars, and a $25 gift card when you get either a Trailblazer ATB, an Action Extreme ATB, or a ProStaff binocular.

But wait back to my story......

I drove and drove and drove on a rough secluded back country road. The GPS beeped to turn here and turn there.

But where is the highway I complained! I surely will get to it soon. Oh-Well! I am heading in the right direction. I have to get there eventually.

But why does it seem that I am probably traveling on a rough dirt road at about 10 miles an hour in a paralell line to the perceived highway - surely it is over there a mile or two.

Let me take out my great Nikon Binoculars and check it out (did I say
that this Nikon ATB Promo offer will continue up till December 31, 2008. Did I say that you can see more details on this offer by visiting the Nikon ATB Promotion Details Page. Did I say that once you have made your purchase, register your gift card by filling out the Nikon ATB rebate form on and follow the directions provided to redeem your card for whatever cool gear is to your liking.
And what is even better Nikon Pro Gear offers a variety of high-quality men’s and women’s outdoor and casual garments, optics accessories and other high performance gear that Willy should have been wearing during this awsome treck of backroads.)

By the way more information can be found here:

But I digress agian. The question is am I ever going to get there?

But wait! Up ahead! Through my Nikon Binoculars I see that there are 3 four wheelers with hunters beside the road. I will stop and ask them to get any local directions. That seems best thing to do. Besides it seems that my trusty GPS might need a little help.

Slowing to a stop, I yell sir how are you today? Fine I guess he yelled back. Especially since someone has come along. Can you tell me how to get back to the nearest town. We seem to be in the middle of nowhere and we are lost.

Well, my heat skipped a beat. This is really good. I stop to get directions and my direction givers are lost. Dont Panic - Look in the rearview mirror! There is a vehicle with someone in it that knows how to get everywhere!

It is a UPS truck. Not wanting to look lost myself, I excused myself and said, He can surely give you good directions. Have a nice day!

My plan, as my heart beats rapidly, is to drive just ahead of the UPS truck and if there comes a fork in the road tha I dont understand I will pull off and let him proceed on and then follow. He will get me back to the real world.

A few miles up the road - there it is the dreaded fork in the road. I pull over and act like I am getting something out of my eye. My GPS says turn left! The UPS truck goes by and turns to the right!

What I yelled - Decisions to be made! By Golly I paid good money for this GPS and I am going to trust it. Lets go left.

My heart beats faster as the road grows smaller and rougher. The only house for miles has an old man sitting on the front porch. Is that a banjo in his hand! Did I hear dueling banjos! Are they just waiting for me?

Wait - that makes no sense. There are no communities within miles of here but yet there is a grave yard with several newly dug graves. Keep driving dont stop or I might be the next one in the hole.

Look another house! Two young men are sitting on the tailgate of an old rundown ford truck. Oh my goodness! There eyes are too close together and they give me a great big grin as I go by.

But wait! Maybe all is ok. The GPS finally indicates the main highway is just ahead. It is about time. It has been about 45 minutes since I split with the UPS truck. It has been a loong 45 Minutes.

Yes! There is the highway I was looking for. I knew my GPS would get me there! But wait. What is that up ahead. Looks like a small country cafe with a UPS truck in front of it.

It is the same UPS truck I saw 45 minutes ago. Look the driver is coming out of the Cafe picking his teeth. How could that be. Wait a minute. That is the road coming out over there that the UPS driver took at the fork in the road. And look, I can see where the other road that I took 45 minutes ago forked off! Just about a quarter of a mile down the road.

Thank you trusty GPS! Maybe I should give you to the UPS driver so that he can find his way home!

Well at least I know that I can trust my Nikon Binoculars!

Gus Malzahn - Razorbacks!

It is approaching the weekend and all of the talk is can the Tulsa team hang 55 on Arkansas as it has on average on its previous opponents. It is still a part of the soap opera where Gus was the offensive coordinator for Arkansas but left because he and Houston Nutt could not get along.

Gus is coming to town and has a great scoring offense. The hogs aren't that great but it is said that Tulsa has not played a caliber team yet.

Question is whether the Hogs are a caliber team or not.

Saturday will tell!

Tuesday, October 28, 2008

Arkansas Razorbacks

Who does the Arkanasas Razorbacks play this week? The first question is does anybody care?

Well, they play the former Arkansas Offensive Coordinator Gus Malzahn. His Tulsa offense has been hanging an average of over 50 points on all opponents.

Reckon the Hogs can keep them under 100

Lets wait and see.

There is always next year.

The United States and especially Arkansas is a great place to live. No where else could someone named Barack Hussein Obama be leading an election over a great American Prisoner of War.

How can this be. I am a Baby Boomer, 57 years old, a conservative Christian and one who believes in the American voting process. However, it appears that at this time my beliefs and total being is being threatened by the looming election of Barack Hussein Obama as President of the United States.

It appears that this person will bring on a Socialist attitude that will create an attitude in this country that will push us to the brink of disaster. Yes, the economy is not sound and times are tought now, but this is a piece of cake compared to where we might be if we turn this into the USSA.

Socialism is not the direction we need to go and I am encouraging Americans to go back to the beliefs of our forefathers and vote for truth, Justice and the American Way!(Sounds like Superman)

If you want to see what it very likely will be like with Barack Hussein Obama as president please watch click this link and watch this slide show called The Rise of the United Socialist States of America.

Those are my thoughts for now.

Are you needing to Buy Antivirus Software. Most people need to rethink this and look into something different than what they are now using. If this is the case with you the antivirus software that you need to review is Cyberdefender.

With CyberDefender's security suite you receive real-time security updates, break through technology, and full compatibility with other security software. Compare to McAfee, Symantec, and Panda and save $150! Protect your PC with the CyberDefender Early Detection Center plus you get LIVE technical support for any problem with your computer (one time) and 2 GB online backup.

What more could you ask for than all of those features. This sounds like great software and is something that I will definitely look into the next time I need to renew my anti-virus software.

So, again, check it out! What do you have to loose except for not having excellent protection for your computer, your important electronic documents and your entire cyber presence.

That is what I think for now.

Americana - Cattle Sale

Great when within the confines of "the Job" I can go to the Cattle Auction and watch American at work. The cattle Auction is a sale but much more than just a sale.

Mom and Pop come to watch the calves sell once a year. The cattle buyer is there every week and has a "motion" conversation with the Auctioneer and the kid watches in awe as the "fast talk" continues and the cattle move through at a fast pace.

Americana at work but fleeting. Fewer every year and the one I attended today is probably to pass in the next two years to the progress of a shopping mall.

Just wait till tomorrow and we will know!

What You Gonna Be This Year?

Halloween Costumes and trick or treating is always fun and Hillbilly Willy might try something different to wear this year to scare the kids.

Willy usually just puts on his everyday redneck, hillbilly clothes and the kids think the Willy is in costume. This year, however, willy is going to maybe try out a villain costume from one of the popular movies of the day. What would you think if Willy dresses up as the Joker from Batman.

Some people say the Willy is a Joker anyway and if that is the case Willy just as well dress up like one.

See the costume to the right. If Willy dresses up like that and goes around the neighborhood everyone will think Willy is a little strange. But wait a minute. Willy dresses up in his overalls and his old hat and boots and goes around the neighborhood and people thinks he is strange anyway.

It seems that Willy can't win. Should Willy dress up like the Joker and look cool or should Willy just dress up normal and let all of the kids point at him anyway.

You figure it out. Willy lives in Arkansas which is a great place to live and even greater as Halloween and the fall comes around with the beautiful colors.

If you are into dressing up for Halloween you should check out this site.

That is all for now!

Arkansas Razorbacks Win?

What is up with that? They win against a #20 team.

But wait a minute the team had just fired their Offensive Coordinator and were in upheaval. Maybe they were not a top 20 team after all.

Helloooo- Kentucky can you fire your coordinator this week.

Might help.

Walk Through the Valley of Death

Sometimes you see a picture or something that you cant help from wanting to pass on.

Got Lemon - Get Lawyer

Have you ever had a lemon in a vehicle. The best way to make lemonade out of that is to know about the Lemon Laws by state. The best way then is to move forward by getting answers to your Lemon Law questions.

I had a lemon of a car once. Took transmission back to the shop three times they could find nothing wrong to fix the problem. Well, the transmission went out three weeks out of warranty.
I had it fixed and later asked them about paying for it. Got now where.

I finally went on a letter writing campaign to the car manufacturer. Wished I would have had help in that. I know if I lived in California at that time the best thing I could have done is to go to
get help with someone who specializes in California Lemon Law cases.

So the answer is if you have a lemon in a car, don't set up shop on the side of the road using the trunk as a lemonade stand. No, what you should do is to get you that Lemon Lawyer that can get some attention for your problem. Your problem is important to them and they will get attention!

Don't sweat the small stuff and they will make this small stuff for you and big stuff for the people causing the problem. Get the help you need.

That is my thoughts for now!

Bad Markets - Bad Google - Bad Razorbacks

I commented yesterday about how I had been spanked by the Markets, by Google and By PayperPost. I forgot to mention that the Arkansas Razorbacks are also getting spanked by their opponents.

Texas stomped the Hogs this past Saturday and Alabama kicked them the week before. Guess what? Florida is coming this week. Think the Hogs might get stomped.


Not going to be a pretty season financially and sportswise.

That is my thoughts for now.

Find a New Home at

Arkansas is a great place to live but I am a Texan by birth and still one in my heart. This is why many times I find myself browsing the internet searching for that place that I might like to live back in Texas.

Well, in cruising through I found information that really interested me. The information was about finding that perfect home in or around Austin Texas. Yes, I was looking at
Austin Real Estate and trying to find that perfect place to live.

Well, I also looked close to a place where a good friend lives and that lead me to look at Round rock tx homes for sale. Yes, what I like about this site is that it gives you much information, lots of options, lots of locations and lots of choices. When searching the site for that perfect home you will likely find information that lets you know if the place is going to be right for you. You will find out if there are things there that you like to do and if the weather and climate suit your needs.

Yes, searching for that new or fantasy place to live on the internet is fun and searching for Austin Real Estate and trying to find that perfect place to live is always fun.

You should try this site out if you are thinking about moving at all.

My thoughts for now.

Hit by the Market, Government, Google, PayPerPost - same day!

When the world crashes in it seems to hit from all sides. Here are the facts as Willy sees them:


The stock market and the government took about half of my 401K - Google killed my page rank on three blogs - Payperpost decided that one of my blogs no longer qualified - even though it is very similar to the others that they kept - just different subjects.

  1. Willy manages four blogs:
  • Hillbilly Willy - Fun Food and Politics - which on Sunday had a Google Rank of 3 and a PPP Rank of about 545. On Monday it fell to Google rank of 2 and PPP rank of 656 - All the while Willy was averaging at least 150 - 200 entrecard drops a day trying to build it up. Site has averaged 172 hits per day for past week with 201 on Monday - CRASH DAY!
  • Cooking With Willy - which on Sunday had a google rank of 3 and very high PPP rank now is a google rank of 2.
  • Life in America - Which on Sunday had a google rank of 2 and now has a google rank of 0 - it averages about the same hits and links as the blog above.
Someone help Willy sort this out!

10 - 4 Willy - I guess -

Redneck, Hillbilly or Ozark American

As an ethnic group of the Arkansas Persuasion- it was brought to my attention today in an article by Paul Greenberg that every ethnic group deserves a politically correct name.

The decision needs to be made as soon as possible whether people living in the Ozarks of Arkansas and Missouri should be called Redneck, Hillbilly or the politically correct name of Ozark American.

Also, if we get the name lined out right and get a politically correct nomenclature, it would be the next step to ask for some type of rights and some type of compensation from the government.

This way Willy would be important and get Government bailouts!

What are your thoughts?

Willy is Happy!

Thank goodness it is Friday. We need to reverse this thing and work four days and off 3. I would gladly give 4 10 hr days to get the job done and take a long weekend.

Oh yea! That is what my Dr. and Dentist do. Have you tried to get a dentist appointment on Friday afternoon. No way. Friday morning they say they are open and it is one receptionist.

Where do you go to school for a dental hygienist.

Sounds like my kind of job. Hate to have my hands in others mouths but for Friday off I might try it.

My thoughts for now.

Personal Loans On Line!

Think Cash loans is the place to consider any time that you think that your credit is too bad to get a loan. Yes, that is what I said Cash Loans. This is something that is available is online loans .

What do you mean cash loans? Well, check out the options. You can get cash advances that are typically lower than Payday Loans or a Cash Advance company. The ThinkCash folks have convenient payment options that are unlike Payday loans.

These loans can be paid off in small, easy installments or they can be paid off all at once with no penalties. The option is yours. These loans can be just what you need to get you through the holiday season and give you the cash to make your payments and still give the gifts that are required during that season.

But wait. What if you have an emergency and you are short of cash. Well, ThinkCash is the place to remember. They can get you that emergency cash and give it to you on terms that you can afford to payback.

Or think of this. I have a couple of bills that are coming up and I am short of the cash to get them paid. What can I do? - Well here are three ways to consider to get the bills paid on time:

1. Think Cash loans
2. Think Cash loans
3. Think Cash loans

Does it sound like I am repeating myself. Well, maybe by repeating it - you will get the point. ThinkCash is the place to go. It will get you what you need. It will have terms that you can afford. It will be personal and confidential. So more on the subject. Well, here it is.

So where is a good solid place to go to get that Personal loan on line, even if your credit is bad.

Come on! Guess! could it be Think Cash loans ?

In short, here is the lowdown on the whole thing.

ThinkCash is a short term, personal loan company. They will lend amounts from $250 to $2,500 for emergency times like when the bills have to be paid or to avoid a bounced check.

At ThinkCash, the application can be filled out online and the money wired by the next business day.

If this sounds like something that would benefit you, maybe you should check it out and get that cash you need for whatever you need it for. Also, if you have family members that might need this type of service. Come on! Be there heroe. Tell them about a website that will help them out. You can be the good guy and wear the white hat.

Those are my thoughts for now. Maybe more later on the subject.

Red Wolves Vs Tulsa

What about the Arkansas State Red Wolves. They changed their name this year and have changed their game.

The Red Wolves go to play Tulsa this week and may show up real good against them.

Would be interesting if they beat Tulsa and then later on Arkansas Razorbacks got beat by the same team.

Wonder what Talk radio would say --- Arkansas state vs University of Arkansas would rear its ugly head.

That's my thoughts for now!

Arkansas Razorbacks

What position do you feel Arkansas Razorbacks need most? Do they need a quarterback, a safety, a linebacker, a defensive line.

What do you think. It is hard to tell.

They say the back up quarterback is getting more reps this week. Is that the answer.

How bad will Arkansas get killed by the University of Texas Longhorns?

Time will tell.

My thoughts for now.

Razorbacks - Long Season

The Arkansas Razorbacks played Alabama last week and lost 49 - 14. Could have been worse if Alabama had wanted it to be.

Arkansas now goes to Austin to play Texas. What do you think the score of that game will be.

Any predictions. - No give me games now. Hope coach Petrino can hold it together.

One consolation - Houston Nutt Lost last week!

My thoughts for now.

Arkansas State Red Wolves beat Texas A & M Aggies

What was it that did the trick. Was it changing the name to the Red Wolves. I don't know but the Red wolves of ASU (Arkansas State University) ended up beating the Aggies of Texas A & M University. (A&M).

Sounds like ASU has a good team this year. Maybe with the change in administration at the University of Arkansas there might be a reconsideration of playing in state rivals.

This would draw a crowd - keep money in state and give talk radio something else to talk about.

Go Red Wolves.

Guess What Time it is!

Recent Restaurant visits

Most recent new eating places that we have visited in Arkansas are:

La Mariachi - Conway - Mexican food - much like the many others in town. Some of the people from others were there so must be a connection - Fair but slow and mundane - many others much better - Will not return - expect it to die a slow death. -- 2 stars out of 10.

El Botanos - Conway - Mexican Food - buffet - more real traditional Mexican (old Mexico) surprisingly, although most people don't realize this, that type of food is fairly bland. - pulled pork, guacomole, three chicken dishes - fairly good - too expensive for what you get . Ok - but want frequent often - prefer Tex-Mex - 4 stars out of Ten.

A Penny a Day - Get Relief from Debt!

Do you need some good old Debt Relief . You know, you have had some hard times and now you find that you spend everything you have each month just trying to make the monthly payments. This puts you back in the cycle to create more debt.

Better than all of this is the fact that they offer a great alternative to bankruptcy. That alternative includes debt consolidation or credit counseling.

Yes, their "Debt Reduction Program" is a great solution for consumers who are struggling with large debts with seemingly no way out. This method uses debt negotiation to dramatically lower the total debt that you owe and to also reduce your monthly payments.

Theycan help you save more money than you can possibly save with simple Consumer Credit Counseling. While doing this they are protecting you from the harsh impacts of bankruptcy. This is said to be the best solution for most consumers with serious debt concerns.

All of this also affords you the opportunity to have just one Simple Monthly Payment rather than the many payments that you have on a monthly basis now. That is pretty great in itself!
