Bob's Corner? Yes or No

Well, it seems that the writing bug bit Bob... he asked me to create a poll asking my wonderful readers if you would like to see the semi-regular messages written by him?

Take the poll on the right, it ends in one week from today.

I assume that most of you will want to hear from Bob, so let's start the ball rolling, what questions would you like to ask Bob? Post them here in the comments, after I get enough questions, I'll have him answer the questions. :)

Well Duh!

The headline reads "Free Range Chickens More Prone To Disease", just Google it and you will find page after page of the same story, it seems that "someone" is trying to prove that free range chickens are no better or possibly worse than caged chickens. And I am ticked off about it!

Travel Trailer/Redneck Games pt 1

It took 3 days, lots of sweat, nerves of steel, and a lot of that Archimedes factor to get a small travel trailer from one side of the creek to the other. Should be easy… that’s what I thought!

Doom and Gloom...

…it’s coming to a station near you. I’m not one for doom and gloom, though anyone starting a sentence with “I’m not one for doom and gloom…” probably has a bit of it on the brain. I don’t have a TV therefore I get very little in the way of news and such. A good thing as far as I’m concerned, who needs it! It’s generally full of D&G, dozens or more channels telling us how we evil humans are destroying the planet, global warming, bovine flatulence and such, while bombarding us with commercials and infomercials on the latest fashions, diet adverts and penile enhancements…

Homemade Pasta - Yes You Can!

Homemade pasta, it’s easy, it’s cheap, it’s tasty, did I mention it’s cheap? I had found several recipes on line for homemade egg noodles, I had a pasta roller that I had purchased many years ago, I had the ingredients I needed, so why not give it a try?
