How to Move the Universe?

Since my wife has been working out of state and we have wanted an RV for a while, we decided to purchase one with the intent that she would stay in it rather than spending the money on a hotel. I signed the paperwork last Friday, here it is Tuesday and my wife gets a job offer for a work at home position which she will most likely accept.

This is especially funny because I told my son this morning that after 20 years of living on my own in Western New York I think I'm going to get a snow blower. I followed up by explaining that this would only speed up our move out of this area and result in us not needing the snowblower.

I'm thinking that there must be an action that I can take that would result in our winning the lottery. Hmmm...

Four Days Until Deer Season Begins

So I'm really down to only three days left to get tree stands fixed and do a little prep for shotgun season. It seems like every year I'm less prepared than the last. I swore I was going to build a nice stand for my dad that offered some shelter and add another stand for my son, but nothing got done. In fact, I can't remember a year where I accomplished so little. I'm not sure what happened to... Well, pretty much every day since spring began.. I guess I better start preparing for next spring now!
My birthday falls on openening day this year so with any luck my gift will be venison in the freezer. While I would love to get a nice buck, I'm really a meat hunter and while I've never tried antlers, I'm pretty sure they are not that tasty.
I'll just cross my fingers and hope a dumb one comes my way..

Gunny Beer

I discovered these beers in Whole Foods, of course I had to pick them up. After all, with names like Shotgun Betty and Peacemaker how could I not?

Although the Hefeweizen is not my usual style of beers it is actually very good. The Pale Ale is a bit hoppy for me but still a pretty good brew. I have to see if I can purchase these in New York and check out the other flavors. http://www.loneriderbeer.com/
The purpose of the Whole Foods trip was to get raw peanuts. We can't get them around here so of course I needed to pick up a bag and see what I could do with them.

North Carolina Vegetable

Back from a trip to North Carolina where I learned an interesting thing, Macaroni & Cheese is a vegetable in the south. The 7th vegetable from the top left is Mac & Cheese. Huh??
