Dumpster Diving Pigzilla Style

That's a whole lot of bacon. Found outside Hong Kong, they can weigh up to 450 lbs.

Story and video from 10TV

An enormous wild boar was caught on camera rifling through a garbage dumpster outside a school in Hong Kong. Video of the encounter posted on Facebook has gone viral, with thousands of shares and comments.
The video shows the feral pig standing on its hind legs as three younger piglets standing around the dumpster eagerly awaiting a bite to eat. The adult pig grabs trash bags in its mouth, trying to free the delicious garbage from the confines of the dumpster. 
And some extra large BBQ ribs.


Wonder if wild boar tastes close to American grown pork?


Yum, yum!!!

Candidate's Parents Give To Wisconsin's Tammy Baldwin

Once a democrat, always a democrat? You have to ask former democrat Kevin Nicholson who is running as a republican in the race to unseat Wisconsin Senator Tammy Baldwin. Talk about embarrassing. Obviously his parents will always be democrat's giving $2700 each to Baldwin. How can Nicholson say he is a republican? He was a democrat before he was a republican? Heard that one before! Let's hope the voters of Wisconsin see through this!

From the Washington Times.

The parents of a Republican U.S. Senate candidate have donated thousands of dollars to the Democratic woman he is trying to unseat.
The parents of Kevin Nicholson, who is running for the Wisconsin seat held by Sen. Tammy Baldwin, have donated the maximum amount allowed to Ms. Baldwin.
According a Baldwin-campaign filing with the Federal Election Commission, CNN reported Monday evening, Donna and Michael Nicholson each gave the federal limit of $2,700 to Ms. Baldwin’s campaign in December.
Time for Leah Vukmir for Wisconsin Senate.

Maple Syrup Shortage In 2101



Time to hoard more maple syrup in the basement bunker.

Climate change to bring syrup shortage.

From Science

Savor that sticky, slightly nutty sweetness drenching your Sunday morning pancakes now. The trees that make maple syrup will struggle to survive climate change, a new study reveals. Researchers had thought that pollution from cars, factories, and agriculture might buffer sugar maples against an increasingly warm and dry climate by supplying soils with fertilizing nitrogen. But the new analysis, which examined 20 years of tree and soil data in four Michigan locations, finds that extra boost of nitrogen won’t be enough. Instead, the researchers report today in Ecology, a lack of water will stunt the trees’ growth. They ran two climate change scenarios specific to the region. In one case, driven by a decrease in carbon dioxide emissions, temperature would change moderately, by less than 1°C over the next century.

My neighbor down the road will not be happy when I tell him the bad news. Him and his wife process maple syrup every spring. 

Better tell my grandchildren, they will be in their late 90's when the shortage hits.

C Y A - E Mail On POTUS"s Last Day

Huh!

These people are really good. Who would of thought that you send yourself an e mail about a meeting you had fifteen days earlier to say what really happened and what your boss really said?


From  Fox News


Ex-national security adviser Susan Rice sent an “unusual email” to herself the day President Trump was sworn into office documenting former President Barack Obama's guidance at a high-level meeting about how law enforcement should investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential race, two Republican senators said Monday.         

According to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Sen. Lindsey Graham, the partially unclassified email was sent by Rice on Jan. 20, 2017 -- and appears to document a Jan. 5 meeting that included Obama, then-FBI Director James Comey, then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, then-Vice President Joe Biden and Rice. 

In the email, Obama's national security adviser wrote: “President Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities ‘by the book.’ The president stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.” 


Talk about a C Y A moment!


Me think more emails to come out and this is by no means is the last shoe to drop.


What do you think?

Wait one minute, I think I should write myself an e mail about my past employment.

I remember back on January 25, 2018 , I forgot to take the garbage out even though my boss told me directly to do it. He said, "Paul, take the garbage out!" Hope he forgets about it when I go back to work.

I remember back on January 22, 2018 I was one minute late when I took my 10 min. break, (I clocked in at 10:01 am instead of 10:00 am! I remember my boss telling me not to be late, He said, "Paul, take your break and make sure you are not one minute late." Yep, that's what he said

Back on January 21, 2018 I remember one of my bosses told me to put a sale sign on a display that was showing the regular price. He stood there right next to the windshield wash in aisle 225. "Paul, get a sale sign on that display!" He even pointed to it with his right index finger. We both were 2.75 ft from the display. I can remember it like yesterday him telling me to do it.

Now I feel better, nothing like Covering My Butt. Hope they will take me back after I get my medical situations taken care of.

NASCAR Clash(es) At Daytona

First big day for NASCAR in 2018.

Start of the Advance Auto Parts Clash, Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Serirs at Daytona International Speedway.

Random thoughts listening on MRN online. Cancelled Dish, it is what it is. This is what happens when you live up north and have foot surgery.

Paul Menard is driving the 21 for Wood Brothers.

Menards sponsors the # 12 for Penske with Ryan Blanney. I like the move to Ford.

Pre Race show called Jimma Johnson #48 "Grandpa", it fits. He should retire.

Lap 23 to go, Crusty Rusty is giving his 2 cents.

Penske has three cars in top 5. Like what I hear.

Pit stops are 16 to 20 seconds. Sounds like, slow as molasses in January not February.

Kasey Kahne is not what he used to be.

Three Penske cars one, two, three. Brad # 2 in first.11 laps to go.

Commercial break!!!!!!!!!!

For God's sake, another commercial?

So far no big wrecks, still time. Five to go

Can't get any better than that! Big K wins!

Have a Miller Lite!

Post race. #48 complaining about getting turned around by another Chevy. Sounds like it was the # 42.

Duels on Thursday.






Another Dekker, Decker From Wisconsin In Sporting News




Is she related to that other Dekker from Sheboygan?

O K, so her last name is not Dekker but Decker, D E C K E R is also from Eagle River Wisconsin.

Seems Natalie Decker took a fifth place finish Saturday at the ARCA race at Daytona Speedway. After starting on the pole, had some bad luck with dings and dents, made it through your normal maylee only Daytona can give and still came out fifth gives her a bright future in racing.

Story from ESPN.

No matter how you spell it, Sam and Natalie are from the great state of Wisconsin. Go cheese-heads.

O K, it would be nice if she drove Ford, but I guess she knows what she is doing.

You go Natalie, Congrats on placing fifth.


Free U.S. Taxpayer Money

Never saw this coming!!!!!!

Seems some of the $1.7 billion given to Iran from the Obama administration two years ago found it way to terrorist groups in the middle east.

Story at the Washington Times.

Who would of thought, Iran, free money from U.S. taxpayers, given to terror groups.

As Gomer Pyle would say,

SHAZAM!!!!

What do you think??????????

Record Bagel Lox Sandwich

Never, never, ever get up early hungry.

Mmmmmmmmmmmm.

From the New York Post

Acme’s team began by spreading a reported 40 pounds of cream cheese on a kiddie-pool-size plain bagel. Next came 30 pounds of smoked salmon and enough sliced red onions, tomatoes and capers to cover every bite — and stink up the whole block, presumably.
After placing the top on the monster bagel, the assemblers proceeded to take the sandwich’s official measurements. The monstrosity weighed in at 213.75 pounds.

Dog gone it, my doctor says I need to stay away from carbs, future diabetes possible. 

I love bagels and cream cheese.

How about you?

Since We Last Spoke

Does this blog still work????????

Let's see, since we last spoke, wow, 2016,  I worked for a bakery suppler and a large Wisconsin
home Building Supply Chain. Great team members at the last gig.

Taking time off to mend two ankles, one at a time.

Here's the left, (if you can understand it) from an MRI.

The axial images confirm hindfoot
valgus deformity. There is deficiency/attenuation of the supporting soft
tissue structures of the medial foot and plantar arch, such as the
posterior tibial tendon and spring ligament complex which appear lax and
stretched out in appearance. Coronal images demonstrate lateral
displacement of the calcaneus with respect to the supra-adjacent talus,
Axial images confirm hindfoot valgus deformity of the calcaneus.


(Sorry no image)

Do you understand that? Greek to me, just know I now have one pin and three screws in the foot.

Oh well, in a cast for 4 weeks, After that Physical Therapy.

Then the right ankle.

Since I have the time, should I get back into blogging?

Any comments?

Looking For a Wisconsin 8th District Candidate In 2016

Huh!

So a RINO, Carpetbagger, No Labels guy, who wants to always cross the aisle and get along with democrats from Wisconsin's 8th Congressional District isn't a fan of Trump! Really!

Top Republicans share Ribble's disdain for Trump's call to ban Muslims from traveling to the U.S., but have stopped short of saying they wouldn't support him should he become the party's presidential nominee. 

Read more at The Huff Post.

Since I haven't decided on a Presidential candidate as of yet, so can someone tell me what has Ribble done to secure the borders? What has Ribble done to stop Obamacare? Ribble just wants to work with democrats.

"My first oath is to the Constitution of the United States. 
Say what! What part of the oath has he upheld?

We have wonder if there is someone with a conservative view that would run against Ribble in 2016.
It would be worth donating to that campaign for sure! Glad Ribbble isn't getting my vote in 2016.

I hate CARPETBAGGERS! When has Ribble since going to Washington done the job he was sent there to do?

Another thing, notice how right wing talk radio in the state just drools and fawns over Ribble? Can you feel the love! I say again, CARPETBAGGER!

What do you think?

Will Trump Candidacy Cost Republican Seats

The Washington elites and those who only bleed republican are having a tough time wondering if they can vote for Trump if he would or could win the candidacy for president. They seem to be pulling down senate and congressional seats down with them.

Medved, who says he believes a “Trump candidacy would guarantee Republican losses in every swing state, as well as possible losses in Texas and Arizona,” added that just because he is questioning whether he could support Trump as the Republican nominee, it doesn’t mean he is considering supporting Clinton, who he was friends with when they both attended Yale Law School in the 1970s.  

Read more at the Daily Caller.


If republicans lose Senate and congressional seats in 2016, it will be there own fault for not listening to the people of this country. Do republicans in DC really think the people are S T U P I D? In Wisconsin, do the people of the state really want Russ Feingold back in office? Russ will get the same amount of democrat votes as Tom Barrett did in the last two elections for governor. In Wisconsin there is a finite number that will always vote D even if Mickey Mouse was on the ballot. If Johnson doesn't hear his constituents, he will lose to Russel, his constituents will just skip his vote inside the voting booth.  

As for Trump, a lot of what he is saying is connecting with flyover country. But obviously, it not connecting with the Washington elites and most in the republican party. We will take it a step further, it's like local and state right wing radio going off the deep end over Trump. It seems most, not all have jumped the Shark. They keep falling over themselves, seeing who can bash Trump the most and then giving each other high fives and kudos over Twitter, web sites and social media. It's pathetic?

Is it time for conservatives to leave republicans for a different party name? The name republican has been so bastardized by the liberal left, no matter what R's do or say, just stick a fork in em, they're done. Obviously most candidates running for President are not listening to their conservative majority of voters. Conservatives need to find a new party name and leave the name "republican" and it's RINO's to history books like the Wigs and the Federalists.

The Republican Party in DC is not the party it used to be.

What do you think?

NASCAR, Aftermath of Martnsville, How Did Gordon #24 win

Bristol Motor Speedway August 2009
Bristol Motor Speedway August 2009 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
We have to wonder if Joey Logano will come out and say,

the one good thing about Matt Kenseth taking me out at Martinsville was,

Jeff Gordon may have got his last win in his career.

We have no R E S P E C T for the # 20 from our home state of Wisconsin.
