Probably can't make money online showing pictures of my favorite recipes but I can sure live off my favorite recipes.

If you remember a couple of weeks back I wrote a post about how I like to make bread.

My grand-daughter Alexis and I are the breadmakers. She loves to get her hands into the stuff and thats okay because that is what making bread is all about. Its a "hands on experience".
It can get messy but cleaning up is half the fun. You should look at everything as fun and entertaining. and the reward is this.

It is onion Bread, my favorite. And it was extremly good. I make bread almost every weekend, So come on over and we will have bread and chat for awhile. I can send you the recipe just e-mail me.

No doubt some of you have noticed that yesterdays post has disappeared. I deleted it. Hope you didn't come here hoping to read it again.

Was it an accident? No , it just wasn't up to my usual standards.

STANDARDS!...hahaha Yes I got stardards.

Now I gotta go make some corn bread, I may or may not be back.


Ok so I made some cornbread and it was so good.
If you want the recipe just e-mail me.

So how do you like your cornbread? Sweet or not sweet.
I personally dont like sweet cornbread.

I made a banner. I think it still needs some work but tell me what you think.

The Banking Crisis

Why dont they ever give you enough deposit slips with your order of checks? I always run out of deposit slips way before I run out of checks. My Bank probably thinks its funny. They planned it that way you know.

I'm sure there was a meeting and some marketing genious said "Hey, why dont we just put 4 deposit slips on the back of every checkbook." "That way when they run out of deposit slips then we sell them another whole box of checks."

The problem is , when you run out of deposit slips you have to go inside the bank. I much prefer to use the drivethru. When you go inside You have to use thier pen (which is allways out of ink) and I have this fear that when I'm inside the bank, thats when some wiseguy is going to rob the bank and hold me hostage.

The reason the wiseguy will be robbing the bank........well he ran out of deposit slips and he just went a little nuts. Plus he had to borrow my pen to write the ransom note because the Bank's pen was out of ink.

Then the S.W.A.T. team shows up and every one gets gassed and I get shot , and it would have all been avoided if they would just give everyone more deposit slips. Yup I prefer the Drive-Thru.

I am 52 years old, I got that way by using the Drive-Thru. The kids wouldn't pay the ransom anyways. I know ... they are the ones that keep saying" Just go inside the bank, Daddy"

I get the last laugh though. I'm leaving all my money to the cat. That cat never once asked me to go inside that Bank.

The Family History

I am the Keeper of my Family History. I have been researching my Family History for many years and I will continue to do so probably until I can't log on to my computer anymore.

I spend tons of money and countless hours on this research. There is a filing cabinet in my office that is overflowing with files and photos and letters that I really need to get organized.

In my family tree (and in almost everyones) there are some heros and there are some not so heroic figures also.

Our children need to know. In everyone the is an inborn desire to know where you came from. Why you look like you do? My Grandkids are extremly beautiful and I know they didnt get that from me. is great. I can spend hours and hours there. If you ever get a chance you should go there and see if you can solve some of your family puzzles. It's fun to be a detective and search out the little things that never get talked about, but just beware. You might find out something that was kept secret for a long time. And YES, All families have secrets hidden in thier Family Tree

My Family came to the USA from England in the mid-1600's. They settled in New Jersey. They moved from there to the Carolinas and then to Arkansas and eventually we wound up in the great State of Texas. We have had heros and scoundrels in every war.

One thing I have noticed is that I come from a long line of Preachers and farmers. I sometimes joke that there was not an honest living made by any of them. But I guess Farming is good honest work.

Keep records and tell your children about your history. They WANT to know.

I promised you in my last blog to put pictures of Alexis and Haley on here today so here they are.


Remember it is important that You always FEEL GOOD

The Greatest Blog Ever

Zoom, Zoom, BEEP BEEP,

There I was driving to one of my jobs yesterday and I got an idea. And I says to myself " Myself, this would make a great blog. Matter of fact THIS COULD MAKE THE GREATEST BLOG EVER!"

I should have written it down, because I have completely forgotten what it was. But I know it was really outstanding. You were that close to reading the greatest blog ever. Now before you get mad at me, just think about this for a second.

If I had actually written the greatest blog ever then, well every other blog that you read from now on would be a big let down. I may have done you a tremendous favor by not writing the Greatest Blog Ever. Please post all your "thank you"s in the comment section below.

Have you ever met the guy who insist on pulling out his pictures of his Grandkids and showing them to you one by one? Don't worry, I only post my pictures 2 or three times a year and I space them out.

All my Grandkids are blonde and blue eyed. They get thier hair from me. I can prove it, I hardly have any hair left. Now this picture is of four of my Grand-daughters.
I will post pictures of my other two Grand-Daughters tommorrow.

I need some followers. Just click the link over there and I will do my best to keep you smiling and maybe even point you in the right direction every now and then.

Friday is officially "No Yelling" Day

Around my house it can get pretty loud at times.

Why do people in separate rooms try to carry on conversations? Wouldn't it be easier to stand up and walk into the other room and talk like normal people?

It usually goes like this. One child yells at the other about something. Then another yells at them to shut-up. Then the one watching the t.v. turns up the volume. Then they all yell at that one and the volume gets louder and then they all holler at the top of thier lungs. MOM!!!! make so and so be quiet.

So I made a sign and posted on our "Magic" board. We all have one don't we. It's the erasable marker board that is also magnetic.It hangs on the wall in the Kitchen.

Anyways the sign say: Friday is "NO YELLING DAY" . We will see if it works.

One other question. Why do children, and even some grown-ups, try to talk to me through the bathroom door?

***** I joined a team build for the Work for 3 dollars program. You might want to check it out. Teambuilds are a great way to build a downline.

***** Don't forget the birthday bonus club. It is growing at an outstanding rate. Just imagine waking up on your birthday and getting hundreds of alertpayments of $5.00 each. There is also a teambuild for it here.

***** Instantpayout.3900 is still going very strong. I have recieved over 11 payments in my alertpay account.

We may be a loud bunch at my house but we are a very happy bunch also. Sometimes we express our happiness very loudly. The joy of listening to 9 women all laughing and having a good time is never dull and it always makes me smile.

Making Bread with the Grandkids

Ok, I admit it. I like to make bread.

Making bread can be a load of fun and I recomend it to anyone and everyone. Its kind of like my meditation, ( everything to me is kind of like meditation). I make bacon bread, onion bread, big loafs , small loafs, dinner rolls,. Can't make donuts though, they never come out right.

Making bread is even more fun if you have a couple of grand-daughters helping. Flour goes everywhere. There is nothing better than getting kids involved.
And the look of pride on thier faces when everyone sits down to eat and they exclaim" We made the Bread".

But.... You will find dried up bread dough days later in places where you would never look for bread dough.

*****If you are a blogger then you should be following "The Friday Traffic Report". Jack Humphrey's Blog should be required reading for every blogger.******

I have added some of my favorite bloggers on the sidebar--->

*****tomorrow I will post a couple of links to new and exciting opportunities that I have been looking at.

Wonderful thing happened to me today. I woke up.

I started writng and then My mind started wandering around.

Thought of old songs. then I thought of old friends. I miss my brother who passed a few years ago. He was my best friend.

I thought of my ex-wife who is now my new girlfriend and the only woman I have ever loved.

I thought of each of my daughters and my wonderful grand-daughters.

The new house Im in isnt so new anymore. The winter is upon us and I really hate the cold , but I love coffee and cold weather is a good excuse to drink coffee.

I have worked hard to get to where I am in life and I know it could all crumble away.

I love the internet and I really like my daily blog.

Someone suggested that I should do a top ten list about something. Nah, all my list are always changing, my favorite one day might not be my favorite the next day.


I want to thank you all. I was able to write a very decent check to St.Judes , I hope you all do the same.

Won The Lottery

Bought a scratch-off lottery ticket yesterday. It cost me two dollars. WOOHOOO I won four dollars. Thats a 200 percent return on my money.I wish all my gambles paid off that well. And lets dont count all those scratch-offs that didn't win. That would take the fun out of it.

I'm a bit of a gambler. I love going to the casinoes and playing the craps table. but I would never try to make a living at it. The odds are just too great in favor of "the house".

I want to be "the house".

I once spent an entire day at the craps table. 9 hours solid standing and betting over and over. At the end of nine hours I was down maybe $50. So I went and sat at the slot machine to rest and put $20 in the machine and won $1500 in ten minutes. Go figure.

Oh, what did I do with the money? Next day blew it all on the craps table of course.
Thank god I had a scratch-off ticket in my car, paid for the gas money to get home.

I love Birthdays

No, before you get excited and run to wish me Happy Birthday. It's not my Birthday, my birthday is in September.

Speaking of birthdays, Here in the Dallas /Ft.worth metroplex in the winter of 1980. It was snowing like it had never snowed before.
My wife was feeling awfull and the roads were bad and she told me I had to take her to the emergency room.
I couldn't even pull my car up to the emergency room door. It was on a slight incline, and the pavement was too slick. Oh my god I had a headache.
I finally walked her across the parking lot and we got into the hospital and spent a very long agonizing night.

I was wondering to myself if I had ever had a worse night.

The next morning as I looked out of the Hospital room window at the fresh clean blanket of snow and then looked over to see the face of my newborn baby daughter, I realized that the worse night had become one of the most wonderful nights of my life.

Yup. I like birthdays.

The Caveman sings

Need a smile. Just scroll down to the video and watch it. Its a great song but I bet you didn't know that the singer was the famous caveman off of the commercials. Well maybe he's not but the resemblance is uncanny.

I really believe that "Thoughts become things". You have to think like a successful person. I have allways considered myself a success. I have never had to worry about money. I always finds a way.

Don't constantly think about your debts. All the universe will hear is "debt". And the universe will always give you what you want.

Oh and you are what you eat. So eat something really rich today.

Im not promoting anything today. just check the sidebar.

Leave the lights up year round?

I have been offline for a couple of days. The holidays around here leave little time for anything else but the holidays. Today I need to take down the Christmas lights.

It was a major chore just putting them up and now I have to take them down. Would be probably easier to move. But I kind of like it here. I considered just leaving them up year round. I am a champion at procrastination. I work very hard at

Seems like every year we get more lights, I never buy them, they just sorta appear in the box where I keep christmas lights. I think the women buy new lights and sneak them into the box every year and then say " what are you talking about, they are the same as we had last year".

If I leave them up year round then they can't do that. But then the nieghbors would complain. You know what nieghbors I'm talking about, the ones with the perfectly manicured yard and freshly painted house. I distrust those people, everthing is just a little too perfect.

Excuse me, I have wandered too far off subject here.

The Christmas lights are waiting for me. Happy new year everyone and just remember
