I don’t know if I have ever mentioned it but I am very good at making home repairs. If any of you need some advice I am the man.
The following is only a few things I have done in the past. Please understand I wasn’t this good when I first started.
I suppose when it is all said and done most of us don’t do much remembering on Memorial Day. I can say this with a certain amount of authority. I base it on all my years in the retail business.
Almost every dealership will be cooking hot dogs or hamburgers this Monday trying to compete with the malls. Even after all these years they want to do squat. Still they will act like it is a big car holiday. Any thing to keep the salesman who cost them nothing, from spending time with their family and friends.( most work on 100% commission) From Memorial day to the Fourth of July they will try to con someone into coming in on a strictly voluntary basis to work the Fourth. The sales manager will normally select the bottom five guys on the board when no one will volunteer.
Now, some of you that read my blog may know that I also spent three years in the furniture business. If you miss the Memorial day weekend there you have missed one of the biggest weekends of the year.
I have often wondered why people have this urge to buy furniture and mattresses on this particular weekend. Memorial day weekend will let everyone know how there summer sales are going to be. The average salesperson in the retail furniture business will most likely make more in these two days than he will any week of the year.
So be advised if you plan on going out and kicking a few sofas or lay on some mattresses that is way more than you know you are going to spend. This may not be the weekend to do it. You might get pushed out-of-the-way to make room for a buying customer.
This year I find myself in my golden years. I have as I have said before, gone full circle in the car business. I am now finishing out my time on a small gravel lot where I am the sales-manager,salesperson, janitor and lot man. This comes with one major benefit. If you want to find me Monday I will be in the back yard cooking Baby Back Ribs.
Have a great weekend everyone.
I understand that most of us never believe any thing is going to happen until it happens.
Well, the housing bubble actually happen. The debt ceiling is now been hit and congress is refusing to go any further.
Gays serve openly on the military. No one pays the US much attention any more except on pay-day.
Soon we will be adding solar storms to this list. I am sure many will be saying what’s going on when their lights blink and their TV sets go off.
Here is another follow-up from a respectable member of the science community.
Oh, just for the record the Mississippi can still flood.
I am only saying this because so many think that the government can stop any thing. Guess what? God doesn’t take orders from Washington.
GENEVA (AP) — A senior official at the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says solar storms pose a growing threat to critical infrastructure such as satellite communications, navigation systems and electrical transmission equipment.
NOAA Assistant Secretary Kathryn Sullivan says the intensity of solar storms is expected to peak in 2013 and countries should prepare for “potentially devastating effects.”
Solar storms release particles that can temporarily disable or permanently destroy fragile computer circuits.
Sullivan, a former NASA astronaut who in 1984 became the first woman to walk in space, told a U.N. weather conference in Geneva on Tuesday that “it is not a question of if, but really a matter of when a major solar event could hit our planet.”

Prig offered Pig the first chance at dessert,
So Pig reached out and speared the bigger part.
“Now that,” cried Prig, “is extremely rude of you!”
Pig, with his mouth full, said, “Wha, wha’ wou’ ‘ou do?”
“I would have taken the littler bit,” said Prig.
“Stop kvetching, then it’s what you’ve got,” said Pig.
So virtue is its own reward, you see.
And that is all it’s ever going to be.
Have a great Weekend
President Obama’s Treasury dept went over the debt limit as if wasn’t even there by over selling notes and bonds Tuesday and Wednesday.
Mr. Obama is obsessively above any US laws. Maybe he answers to a higher calling of the Muslim faith.
Trust me on this. Hard times are coming. This president reminds me of my daughter when she was a little girl. She came to me on day and ask for some money. I told her I didn’t have any. Her answer was simple.
She handed me my check book and said, “Sure you do. This book is half full of checks.”
Obama’s answer to this crises is a question.
“Are the check writing machines broken.”
The following picture is a little something to make you forget your problems for a second or two.
Have a great day.
