Friday the 13th

Whats the big deal.

So it's Friday the 13th.

A few quotes from Wikepedia;

No historical date has been verifiably identified as the origin of the superstition. Before the 20th century, although there is evidence that the number 13 was considered unlucky, and Friday was considered unlucky, there was no link between them. The first documented mention of a "Friday the 13th" is generally listed as occurring in the early 1900's

On October 13, 1307, a day so infamous that Friday the 13th would become a synonym for ill fortune, officers of King Philip IV of France carried out mass arrests in a well-coordinated dawn raid that left several thousand Templars — knights, sergeants, priests, and serving brethren —

Wow, scary, just think if you had your 50th birthday today.

Do you think you would win at the casino?

We'll let you know later!!!!!!!!!

December 22, 2003

Just got home from a four day week in upper Michigan.
Turn the T V on and scan Dish for something to watch to unwind.

Wow , this is GREAT!

Green Bay Packers vs. the Oakland Raiders.

The Monday night game where Brett's Father died the day before.

I look back at this past 2007 NFL draft and think this could be Brett's last year.

You know if you think of it , "You deserves to go out on top".

For all the thrills and excitement you have given us , you sure could use some help and Mr Thompson passed on Randy Moss and Mr Thompson doesn't seem to care! Hope I'm wrong!

I know that no one ever reads these post's but if I could say anything to Mr. Farve , it would be "Thank You for all you have given me.

You are a leader!

You are a hero!

And someone this Packer fan will never forget.

Brett, what ever you do , I'm behind you for what ever decision you make.

Thank You Brett, I will never forget you.

Do what ever you have to do .


God Bless Brett Farve and his Family

350 Jobs

This sounds like Sparta is in a PICKLE.

The question is do they make ethanol or keep 350 jobs.

I'm with Hormel on this one.

Wis. city's largest employer threatens to leave over ethanol
By RYAN J. FOLEY Associated Press Writer

SPARTA, Wis. (AP) -- Farmer David Rundahl looks around a field of pine trees and weeds on the edge of this western Wisconsin city and sees the perfect location for a $115 million ethanol plant.
He points to nearby railroad tracks and notes the rumble of cars on Interstate 90 - an ideal spot for shipping corn and fuel, making some farmers rich and reducing the country's dependence on foreign oil.
But the project proposed by Rundahl and others might come at a high price: Sparta's largest employer, a dairy processor located less than a half-mile down the tracks, is threatening to leave along with its 350 jobs if the plant is built. That would be an economic blow to Sparta, a town of 9,000 in the heart of dairy country.

Read the rest.

I think someone is getting rich fast and we have to pay for it.
Save the jobs.
