Arkansas Razorbacks - Where did that team Come from.

I have been critical of the Razorback Basketball team lately.  They have seemed to just be running in circles with no coaching and no real game plan.

Last night was different.  They played and beat the #19 team in the country.  They looked good doing it.  Sanchez and Clark show was what it was.  They scored, rebounded and just plain hustled.  Why the difference.

There even appeared to be a game plan and some good coaching.  Could it simply be that the team decided to play as a team, find the strengths of the night and work the scheme that the coach has planned.

Sounds good to me.  Can it keep happening when they play Georgia at home in a short while.

I doubt it. Who knows.

Arkansas Basketball - High School Style

Last week Florida just barely beat Auburn, the Worst basketball team in the SEC, by only 7 or 8 points and in the same week Arkansas took the Best record team in the SEC east, SC to overtime before getting beat.

Then Saturday night Florida blows out Arkansas.  Arkansas looked like a High School team.  No - take that back they looked like a Junior high team.

John Pelphrey has one of the best recruiting classes in the nation coming in next year.  If he doesn't get to coaching better, someone else will get to win with that team.

Go Hogs?

Hogs When?

Two posts ago was about the Hogs playing on TV at that time.  They went in at half down 5.  Expected it to be over then.

I went away for most of game and came back with 5 minutes left.  Hogs were up 7.  Wow - Way to go.  You can win this one. 

Regulation time ends in a tie.  Hogs go south in overtime and get beat about 7 or 8 points.  Who cares which one.

John Pelphrey - what is the problem.

Go Hogs????

Crowd Control done Right.

There are many places and businesses that have need for crowd control.  Most people think of this as having something to do with an out of control crowd or a police action.  However, this is simply considering the fact that there are many places that could use stanchions to keep people in a line or in order.  Some of the places where this would work could be a bank, concerts, political events or even at the grocery store and anywhere that someone needs to have an orderly line.

Yes, stanchions are a standard way to do this.  There are retractable belts, velvet rope and many other ways of creating lanes or barricades to direct or keep crowds moving in the right direction or in the right place.  Barricades can also be considered for traffic control, security and privacy.  Barricades can be fences, traffic cones, pipe walls or even drape walls. 

So with this new thoughts about crowd control, you may even decide that it is something that you or your company may have a need for.  What do you think.  Do you have any needs for this.  If so you know how to search online to find what you need. 

These are my thoughts for now.

Hogs Now

The Hogs are on TV right now.  I quit at half to watch Criminal minds.  I have not checked back yet.
  They were behind 5 at the half.  Razorbacks did not deserve to be on the floor as many shots as they had missed.

Could not figure why they were still hanging in.  Hope they win but expect when I get back to the game the score will be lopsided for the other Team. 

Can John Pelphrey last.

Get Online Freebies

Are you one of those people that gets excited about getting free samples or just about any type of free stuff?
Does just getting the opportunity to get something like free cell phones make you so excited you tremble?  If the answer to these things is yes and yes then you need to make haste to the website that I have recently been introduced to called  This site has it all. 

I went to the site just to review what they had to offer so that I could talk about it intelligently and found myself going through all of the pages that were there to see what was available.  Yes, while I was there I found myself clicking the links and signing up for free products.  I found that you could get free product offers online, by mail, free trials, free coffee and just about anything you could think of had something to offer in some way.  What is best about it was it was free.

So, if you are into getting free stuff  like most people are, then you need to get to this site in a hurry and get started.  You will be glad that you did.  That is my thoughts on that.

Arkansas Basketball

Arkansas Basketball is at a Crossroads. The question is what do you do when you come to the fork in the road. The joke answer is that you pick up the fork and eat with it. The question for the Razorbacks and for John Pelphrey is what will they eat.

Will the Razorbacks eat crow or will they eat their opponents? Will they eat the right stuff or will they get eaten up.

Will Pelphrey get to stick around next year to be able to work with this great class that he has recruited or will he be thrown out for someone else.

If Pelphrey were to get fired, who would replace him that is any better.

Those are my thoughts for now.

Go Hogs.

The Steam Team Austin–Cleaning up!

Ok, the dog has been tracking all over the carpet, the house is about five years old and things such as the tile and the carpet are dingy.  Well who are you going to call to get the best tile cleaning machines that austin has to offer?   You probably should call The Steam Team of Texas.  They are probably one of the premier companies for carpet & rug cleaning austin has to offer

Yes, this appears to be a great company in Austin.  They say that they have all of the commercial steam cleaners austin people might want.  These include getting the right cleaning at the right price.  This could also include the fact the needs that you might have if you have ever had a fire.  That would mean that they are also a premier fire & water damage austin cleaner and they can get the job done. 

So, if you have cleaning needs you should give them a call. They are in Austin and they can get the job done.

Laptop Carts are great to Have.

Laptops are the favorite computer for homes.  It is great to have something that is so portable and easy to maneuver and use but it is also important to have laptop carts that can easily store the laptop or make it easily accessible in your favorite place.

Yes, I faced this just recently.  I did not have a laptop cart or any laptop storage close to the place where I use my laptop everyday.  I would simply use my laptop in my easy chair in the evening as I  watched television and then set it over in the floor.  This was not good as when the dog would walk through or for that matter when I would walk through we had to dodge the laptop.  It was always in the way.

Well, just this past weekend, I bought a storage unit for my laptop.  It is now out of the floor and is out of the way.  This can also serve as a stand for using the laptop.  All of this works so much better than just putting it in the floor.

So how about you. If you are in the market for laptop storage you should check out these companies on line and get what you need.

This is my thoughts for now.

Ryan Mallet - Will he or Won't he?

OK this is one of the biggest questions in Arkansas right now after Razorbacks lost the Sugar Bowl.  Ryan Mallet did not show up as good as he should have and everyone believes that this hurt his standing in the next NFL draft.

Most people believe that because of this he should stay at Arkansas for his senior year and play for the Hogs.  I think that this would be ok but there is a backup called Tyler Wilson that I believe will be good also.

So if you were Ryan would you come back or not.  You might not get as high in the draft and so your annual income might be cut down to only 5 or 6 million per year.  What if he came back to Arkansas and got hurt for a career ending injury.  Where would he be then.

Go Ryan go.

There is Gold in an IRA or 401K.

I think gold is a great investment right now and I want to know if a  gold IRA makes any sense.  That would mean that  IRA gold could increase in great amounts and it would possibly work toward an early retirement.  Has anyone out there wanted to buy gold and make it a part of something such as a  gold 401k?   Is all of this nonsense or is this something that could be accomplished by a simple man as me. 

This goes to the point of asking if anyone out there in cyber land ever wanted to do something and you were not sure what or how to do it?  If so this would be a good time to consult the experts about these things such as having a  401k gold account.

Well, in a previous more adventurous time in my life I have bought and sold gold without help of the experts. . With that behind me I have found that it is better, to consult the experts rather than risk all of my savings on my own knowledge.  That is why I believe that if I make these type of gold investments that I am going to use some experts such as those at

I have visited there site and they appear to be a company that knows gold and how to make it work best for me and for those that see the need to use them as the expert.   They could  help someone buy and sell gold and other coins in a way that could be very productive. They even have the expertise to complete a gold IRA transfer that is easy and very manageable.

As you can see, I believe that Gold is good and when trading gold in what ever form, it is best to use the experts.  That is my thoughts about gold at this time.

Sugar Bowl

The State of Arkansas is in pure ecstasy as the Razorbacks are approaching Tuesday night and the Sugar Bowl.

You would think it was the Superbowl.  Fans are excited.  People who are not fans are excited.

Wonder why we can't get excited about the rest of life like this.

Yea Work - ever here that any time lately.

That is the state of mind in Arkansas.
