Football is coming

Can anyone tell that I am ready as is most Arkansans, for Razorback football. Ryan Mallett may be a Heisman candidate and the Defense will be better.

The first game is only about 35 days away.

The state has high expectations and this is the year that I believe these expectations will be met. My predictions are that we win 14 games and a National Championship.

If that sounds two optimistic - how about maybe we win 9 games and win SEC WEst.

Whatever Hogs do will be an improvement. Go Hogs and go Petrino and Go Mallett.

Guest Post -

Sometimes it is good to have a guest post

We had to see Lynyrd Skynyrd

Thanks for the post from Sylvester Campbell

I absolutely love the band Lynyrd Skynyrd. When they were coming to town my sister and I knew that we had to go no matter what. We were unsure as to how much they cost but knew that they would sell out quickly. We went online with my clear 4g and internet bundles and searched for the most reasonable prices we could find. We wanted to be as close to the stage as possible and thought that the center would be great. The tickets were only selling for five minutes and the center front was all sold out. We kept searching until we found two seats that were next to each other eight rows back. We bought the tickets and decided to pick them up at the theater. We went out and got great new outfits, enjoyed a delicious dinner, and then headed to the theater. We went to get our tickets and there was a line down the street. Apparently everyone had the same idea we did. We finally got out tickets and were able to find our seats just minutes before the band began to play.

Countdown to Hog Kickoff

For all of you Razorback fans out there and most of you are if you are in Arkansas, it is 37 days till kickoff. 

It is 37 days until Arkansas gets to kick it on Tennessee Tech

It is 37 days until mystery revealed - is the defense any better.

37 days until we know if Ryan Malletts foot is really better.

37 Days until-------------------------------------------------------

Go Hogs

SEC Media Days!

Ryan Mallett is a rock star at SEC Media days. Everyone wants to talk to him. Why is that? It is because he is as good as everyone thinks he is.

He is a leader. He is a thinker. He is a great quarterback. He can lift them up. He can chastise when it is needed.

Ryan can make a game breaking play at any time. Ryan can be the make it or break it.

The question that everyone has however, is Arkansas can score. Can the defense hold.

That is what I hear across Arkansas today.

Lockers and More Lockers!

Lockers in a dressing room, Gym Lockers, a locker in a school hallway. What do all of these have in common? You don't know!

The answer is that they are all School Lockers, just in different places. The thing that you need to know is that these and other lockers, including Wood Lockers can all be found at a great website located on the web at where great Lockers are for sale.

Some of the reasons that a person might want to research lockers on that site are the following reasons:

1. They guarantee the lowest prices.
2. They claim to have the largest selection of lockers on the market.
3. You get the help of an expert customer service team which will help you through the process the entire way.

So if you are in the market for any kind of locker, please check this out.

My thoughts for now.

Golf and Myrtle Beach Resorts - Vacation Time!

Vacation time is my time.  The wife and I love Arkansas but when it comes time for a vacation we want to get out of town and go do something that we can't do every weekend here in Arkansas.  That something is going to the beach.  

The next idea is to go to the beach but still have golf close by so that I can slip over to the course and get in a great 18 holes on a great course.  This is where Myrtle Beach comes in to play.  This is also where I get on the internet and check out the great places there that fit this criteria.   One of the first places that I ran into in my search was the site with much information which was
I could check out great accommodations and great golf on that site.

To verify the great  golf packages I also surfed around to check out the courses that were available.  Great golfing and great accommodations were justified by other sites on the internet.  This is really great stuff to be able to sit in my easy chair at home and plan a great golf and beach vacation.  A few years ago this took lots of phone calls and a great deal of guessing about the places to go and stay and the places to play.  Now with a click and a drag of the mouse to web sites such as the ones mentioned before especially such as
 a fellow can hardly go wrong.

So here is to a great vacation of golf and beach.  Notice which one I put first.  Might be different if the wife were writing.

My thoughts for now.

Change of Putter

Watching the British open. One of the things that they are talking about is how Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods have changed their putters recently. They are talking about the grooves in the putter and how the putters create a faster roll and how this makes it more affective in their putting.

The thing that I am wondering is would it help my putting here in Arkansas. My putting is always short. Or is it that my putting is always long. No, maybe I should say that it is either left or right. Maybe if I changed the grooves in my putter it would serve me better and maybe I could be longer with my puts and get them in the hole when I am short. Maybe if I extended my putters shaft I could be more exciting when I put.

What I would like to hear next week when I am on the course and I hit my put from 40 feet, I would like to hear that idiot yell "IN THE HOLE"

That would feel good.

Need to Repair Your Bad Credit?

 I am blessed that I have not had the adversity or the reason in life to create extensive credit card debts or to have adversity that has caused me to do things that created bad credit.   This is the best solution for credit is to maintain it as best a person can.  

However, there are things that happen in life that can create issues with a person's credit and give rise to the need to use something like DSI Solutions  to help you get back on track and to Repair Your Bad Credit  so that you can move on to a better credit future.  This will help you later if you are in need of having loans approved without considerable issue or with better rates than you might get if you have bad credit.

Yes, the best thing to do is not have the need for online credit repair services to improve credit but if you are in that situation, the best thing to do is to get professional help and not try to figure it all out yourself.  It is a major plus to have help in repairing your credit because it can be a difficult task but is made easier when you have that great help that can be available with the right company such as

That is what I would do.

Arkansas Razorbacks - Ryan Mallett - Winners?

Well, everyday is closer to Arkansas Razorback football who under Coach Petrino is going to win a National championship this year. How do I know this? I know this because Kegs and eggs blog ran a virtual game on EA's College Football and Arkansas won the National Championship against West Virginia.

Well, that must mean that Ryan Mallett won the Heisman Trophy. Wrong, that award went to Greg Childs for catching so many of Ryans passes.

So there you have it. No need to play the season.

Go Hogs.

Home Security Needed - Search gets results!

A couple of years ago I moved into a  different house.  The house is very nice and previously lived in.  We really enjoy the house.  However, we are in town and crime in a day of poor economy seems to be on the rise.  This gives me the thought that I need to be more concerned about security. 
Yes, the house was wired with like many houses with good security systems and has lots of feature but none of it is activated or being used.   In reviewing the current installed system myself, it is obvious that the system does not have a security video camera which I believe is important and I do not believe that it has a  backup battery and equipment guide.
The thing that I believe that I need to do as a responsible person to my family is to get these things checked out and get anything installed and activated that is truly needed.

How do I go about doing this?  Well, I am approaching this the same way that I approach many of my needs today.  I go to my computer and immediately search for the things that I need.  In this instance I am searching the internet for all of the sites that can tell me what I need in home security and also what companies provide that type of service that will give me what I want and need at affordable prices and good service.

Well, that is pretty much my approach to the thought of home security.  Soon I hope to have completed my search and come up with companies and services that I will delve into and get my needs solved.  

Back to my search.

Felix Jones - Razorback - Cowboy

They say once a Razorback always a Razorback.  It was only a few weeks ago that Felix Jones a former Razorback and now Dallas Cowboy was back in Arkansas throwing out the first pitch at Dickey Stephens Park.  Felix was an all star with the Hogs and now is quickly becoming a rock Star for Dallas.

Well, earlier when Felix was in town his reputation took a hit because a promoter who does not represent Felix announced that Felix would be signing autographs at a ball game when this was not true.  Many lined up but Felix did not show.  Now the promoter is saying that Felix is helping with a camp that Felix says he is not involved with.

Can you say lawsuit if the so called promoter does not cease and desist.

My thoughts for now.

Superb Internet - Ahead of the rest!

 As a small business I find that it is important to work towards getting the right hosting and solutions for managing my business.  So what is it that I have found that I think is important to let others know.  The thing that is important is the site that I have found called Superb Internet.  

Yes, this company is one that can provide dedicated server hosting which is important for consistency and adequacy of service to your companies internet site.  This can then give you those all important managed hosting solutions.  Ok, so you have all of the features that you want.  What else can you have that would make it all better than it has ever been.  

Well, that something would be colocation services.

What is that you ask.  Well, it has something to do with having the right power at the right place for your server and you racks.  This is probably over my head but if you are into this thing you might specifically look into all of this to see how this company can probably provide you everything that you would need.

This is my thoughts for now.

Thunder Storms in Arkansas

Strange Weather in Middle Arkansas today.  Rain on one side of town and not on the other - shopping over there and no rain at home.  We go home and the rain starts.  However, when the rain starts at home there is also thunder and lightning.

I am standing outside working on a bbq grill and lightning strikes so close that I can feel it shake.  I go in the house and it stops.  I go outside and I finish the work but all the time it is raining down.   The rain stops but the lightning keeps striking all around.  Pop here - pop there.  Too close for comfort.

I like rain, I do not like lightning and storms.

Must have gotten about two inches.

That is my thoughts for now.

Bird Cameras - a Great Idea!

Arkansas is a beautiful state and has many things that need to be captured in a picture.  One of the things that I have considered doing many times is setting up a camera to record the birds and the plants in my back yard.  I was never sure how to do that.  Now there is  a great way that I have found.

I have found a site that has about every type and suggestion on ways to use a bird camera.   Bird cameras 
 can be used in many ways.  Cameras for the birds can be used as a bird house camera,  a bird nest camera and can be used as a wireless bird camera.

All of these sound like fun. One of the things that I want to do is find out what is eating from my humming bird feeder.  The feed goes down each day and I never see a bird.  With the wireless bird camera which is motion activated, I can find out what is causing the food to go down.  This is a puzzle to me and now with a bird camera I can solve the mystery.

Great idea for fun and information.  Hope you like the idea.

Fireworks in Arkansas

I am always amazed at all of the personal fireworks that are shot off in Arkansas in the small and medium size communities. Most of these small towns have a ban on shooting fireworks inside the city limits. Many of these cities are very animated about this because of the safety of the citizens and the children.

Please tell me then why is it that as I write on the evening of the 4th of July all of the fireworks are going off all around us and no one is doing anything about it. Is this not a law? Should the police force not try to enforce the law?

As Gomer Pyle would say - Surprise! Surprise!

Not sure why but that is the way it is in small town Arkansas.

Got to love it.

48 Hour Tee Times!

WOW - this is what I said when I found the 48 hour tee times website.   Why did I say WOW?  You should go there to see.  I have mentioned several times recently on this site that the wife and I are looking for a place to vacation.  The reason it is mentioned so many times is that we love vacation and it is overdue this year.  We are ready to get going.

One of the places that keeps coming up is Myrtle Beach.  Beach and golf are a vacation combination that would be wonderful.  Well, looking at the aspect of golf and beach we ran on to this website that gives me the availability of getting great tee times in the Myrtle Beach area.  This site literally gives you such a great choice of places to golf in that area and the availability to get a tee time on the spur of the moment.  This is great stuff.  This is the stuff that WOW is made of.

So, back to the search and the site that gives me all of the information that I need.  This site, also says that it is a full service hospitality group which means that while you are looking and thinking about tee times it could also get accommodations booked at the same site.

Again - WOW!

Those are my thoughts for now.

Small Town Vs Big Town

Car dealing is not one of my favorite things.  It is a necessity sometimes.  There are two ways to buy a car.  I will call them - Small town vs big town.

Here is my take on each.

Large town dealership -
  • three salesman tackle you as you get out of your vehicle on the lot - only one wins your hand
  • you look at 37 cars that they show you that do not match what you told them your price range was
  • you finally find one that maybe you can afford.
  • You to to his desk - one of twenty in the building. -  He begins to try to be your buddy.
  • You tell him what you can do - he tells you he must talk to the boss - tells you that you are real shrewd
  • He comes back with a counter offer.
  • You counter offer - he goes back behind the curtain to the wizard.
  • He counters - he goes to wizard a third and forth time and finally says you win and you agree on a price.
  • You go to fill out the papers with the finance man - the final dollar amount is bout $300 higher than your agreed upon price
  • He tells you it is processing fees and he cant waive them.
  • You get mad but you make the deal anyway and you swear never to go back there again.
Small town deal.
  • You see a couple of cars you like as you drive by.
  • You stop and ask the one salesman as you stand inside the building - What is your bottom dollar.
  • He tells you that here is the best price.  - You believe him.
  • You drive around the block and say - I will take it.
  • You go back in and fill out paperwork.  
  • $amount is exactly what he said it would be
  • You drive off feeling good.
Which one do you like.

The Horizon - Myrtle Beach - Looks Great!

Have you read in my blog earlier that I am thinking about a great vacation with a great beach and a great place to golf. Where do you think a person might find all of this. Well my belief is that all of this can be found by going to a website such as

Yes, that is what I am going to do, I am going to really think about finding the right Myrtle Beach hotel 
 and making the great decision to get on the road as soon as I can and check it out.  Why can that be wrong to find a great hotel and find local and great golfing and beach and just get there and get with the plan.  Sounds good doesn't it.

Well, as always the next question is which of the Myrtle Beach best hotels would I think would be the best.  Let me think about that one just a minute. Maybe the best one that I see is the Horizon.  Looks like a great place to stay and gets great reviews.  Yes, that is probably the choice.

Maybe you might want to check this out.  Great place to stay looks like to me.

That is my thoughts for now.

Cooler Weather in Arkansas

There are few things that are good about Hurricanes. It is obvious that the current hurricane did miss South Texas but did bring some flooding and wind to South Texas. It also brought lots of wind and flooding around one of my favorite places Cancun.

One of the great things is the fact that it did bring some drier air and slightly cooler air to Arkansas.

Cooler and drier air in Arkansas is a blessing. Most days are hot and humid making outside being like an oven.

Too hot and too damp.

My thoughts for now.

Insurance in Connecticut - Great Find!

We visited the east coast last year and decided that if we were going to live anywhere other than Arkansas we would choose Connecticut.  This made me curious about the costs of things and comparison to where I live.  What would it cost to do things that I do now if I were to look at doing them in Connecticut.

One of the first things that I checked was how well could I do on Connecticut auto insurance  Would this cost the same as it would in Arkansas.  Where would I go to to get good auto insurance.  I would go to

Well, I did go there to see how to take care of auto insurance if I were in Connecticut.  You would not believe what else I found.   

It appears that this company could also handle many other of my needs.  I have some annuities that I would want to transfer at some time and they handle Connecticut annuities  How great is that.    

Well, it doesn't stop there this company is also a great place to get Connecticut home insurance.  So, it appears that I ran into a great place to look for all kinds of insurance and annuities in one place.  

Maybe I just should move to Connecticut.  Life would be good there.
