Still no comments working on the blog but I am getting closer to having that fixed. I am sure today’s post will spawn a few emails of cheering and disgust which I love equally by the way.
This time of year the black Dodge is the vehicle I spend the most time in. Luckily for me and those who have to listen to my views and opinions the radio in that pickup has some problems. The radio will not work at all on AM which keeps me from listening to most talk radio which is probably a good thing for my blood pressure. It also saves Festus from having to listen to my thoughts on the problems with politics and this country in general. The problem with the radio is the button that you push to change from AM to FM does not work well. The radio has been stuck on AM for about a month and no amount of punching, hitting with fencing pliers or copious amounts of WD40 sprayed on it has let it change to FM. Today as I was bouncing across some cornstalks I hit the perfect bump and the radio switched back to FM. It will continue to stay on FM and have audio until I either accidently touch the select button or until I hit another bump that jars it back to the silent AM side.
Even though I like music of many types as usual today I was jumping around the dial and found two stations that were mostly news and opinion. Lately I have been basically trying to ignore the news because most of it just gives me negative feelings and generally pisses me off but today I decided to try the news once again. I jumped back and forth between these two stations and alternated between smiling and laughing to total disgust and anger depending on the story, the slant with which it was presented, and the opinions of the “experts” interviewed about the stories. I decided to choose three stories and see if I could make my own opinion to each one being that I am pretty much an “expert” at everything. I also decided that I would only try and focus on the side I found amusing or that made me smile. I was not going to let negativity rule me today.
The first story was about Tiger Woods and a scheduled press conference tomorrow to discuss his past, his future and apologize for his behavior. He will not be taking any questions (imagine my surprise). I can’t blame him for that but I would like to know how you have a wife and 14 girlfriends and did not end up in an insane asylum instead of a “sexual rehab clinic”. I am sure there will be a huge media circus over this and people will be dying to hear what he has to say. I will not be tuning in for many reasons; he does not owe me an apology, I already know too much about his past and could careless about his future. If you want me to tune in show me video footage of his wife chasing him with a 9 iron the night she found out about his harem. Show me some footage of his apology to her and his children or some video of his time being “rehabilitated sexually” that would be something I would pay to watch, tomorrows staged melodrama is ridiculous.

Today’s real environmentalist species found on the ranch is nutgrass aka Cyperus rotundus.
Today’s picture is bull calf number 0902g and his mother 4902g. He is my new favorite of the 2010 spring calves.
