Wood Ticks, Mosquitos, and Asian Beetles

Make Better Choices

This old farmer sat out on the back porch for the first time this spring last evening. After turning up my hearing aids the mourning doves, robins, geese and cranes were a treat to listen to. If there are no birds or animals in heaven I do not want t...

 

The Great Eclipse

Hopefully most of us survived the great eclipse. The excitement created by it was testimony to how bad we the people needed something new for a distraction. Hunter Biden thumbing his nose at Congress and getting away with it is just one example of...

 

Just Like Guns.. Lets Blame The Car Maker

They're Actually After You... I'm Just Standing In The Way

When the month of March flies by in the blink of an eye you might be getting old. As my mom’s friend pointed out years ago, “The days are long, but the weeks months, and years just fly by”. It is a phenomena as old as time itself. Johnny Carso...

 

Minnesota Legislature's Tax Onmibus Bill..... "No Thanks"

No Wars Started....

The columnist who writes “Common Sense” for this paper wrote these words a few weeks back: “You may hate Trump, but he started no wars. Not a single one in his four years. Literally you can count on one hand the number of other presidents who’v...

 

I Pledge Allegiance

What a winter of ice it has been. Almost everyone that has not taken a nasty digger themselves knows someone who has. I am melting melting melting comes to mind. The puddles in the yard are soaking in at a phenomenal rate. Maybe the ground was too...

 

So Little Time

Whoopie! We get to spring ahead again this weekend. Our government can’t even leave our clocks alone. As previously suggested, if you can’t decide, then split the difference. Spring ahead a half hour this spring and do not fall back this fall. Jus...

 

Another Day

8 being a leap year gave February another day to allow March to come in like a lamb. What a strange winter it has been! It is politics as usual in D.C. The Dems accuse the Republicans of lying with no proof to back it up and raise total hell....

 

Please Vote Nikki Haley

Please join me in voting for Nikki Haley in the upcoming presidential primary on March 5th. Nikki's leadership is crucial to steering the Republican Party away from its recent history of chaos, drama, and defeat. Recent polls indicate that 70% of...

 

Putin vs. Political Crime Families

Boy are the liberal left crowing about how evil Putin is. Putin’s number one political rival died in prison. That would be a dream come true for dems if Trump was to die in prison. If Putin was a nice guy there wouldn’t have been forty-three ass... Full story

 

Football vs. Politics

It is awesome to see the days getting longer! The winter loggers and those that walk on water to catch fish are struggling. Even Mother Nature can’t always please everyone. No one seems to be complaining about lower heating bills. Our wild creatures...

One thing about having a critical mind is always trying to understand why other people see things differently. In these times of powerful corporate media, group survival and happiness has been so greatly manipulated that too many people are giving...

 

It Looks, Feels, and Smells Like Spring

Every year and every season are different. This one is definitely different. Not complaining about the temps, but it sure would be nice to see the sun once in a while. My get up and go has got up and went. No idea where it went and no clue if or...

 

NFL Is No Longer NFL

After watching last Sundays NFC and AFC playoff games this old coot was really glad he had not put his money where his mouth was. There was no way anyone but the Ravens and Lions would be battling in the Super Bowl. Wrong! Not once but twice. After...

 

Getting Scarier By The Hour

The only Spanish this old Norwegian understands is “El Nino”. As the wrestler from yesteryear used to say, “That is all the people need to know”. Baron Von Rashke was a character with “the claw”. The last time I heard of him he was operating a baitsh...

 

Seven Types Of People You Should Not Trust

Back to the thirties above next week gives us some light at the end of the tunnel. After working for thirty-four winters in the woods going every day that it was above thirty below I now live in the world of “this is no weather for old men.” Some sai...

 

We All Knew It Was Going To Happen

According to the weather forecast, winter in the great northland is going to get real. We all knew it was going to happen. If some are not prepared for it blame the person in the mirror. A lot of us that stay here do so because we want to. You...

And We Said Okay

Every year and every season is different. Back in the sixties helping grandpa clean the barn, the snow was so deep by Christmas that we couldn’t spread the manure on the fields. This year they are bare of any snow. The ones making tons of money a...

 

Easier To Play The Victim

The sun has now completed its six month journey to the south. In six months it will be as far north as it goes and turn back south again. Around and around we go. Where we stop nobody knows. Now some perverts made a gay porn tape in the judiciary...

 

Why 2K in 2023?

The real estate tax on my humble home is about $2k annually, and I am boycotting the tax. I heard a pastor out of Arizona preach a sermon on the Commandment - Do NOT Steal. God’s Word implies in this Commandment that someone has to own something i...
