The Big Show / Vote against hsus....
« on: November 24, 2010, 03:04:40 PM »
Might sound minor to some, but you might want to show Pepsi, and hsus how you feel about the hsus signing up for a Pepsi grant to "help abused and neglected animals".
I think we are all aware of the fact that the hsus gives only $1 for every $200 donated to actual care of animals. So......
Go to the following site and vote for anyone BUT the hsus (under the $250,000 heading) AND THEY ARE IN THE LEAD! 
While your there, check out all the worthy ideas..... a lot better than supporting the hsus and their retirement funds.

The Big Show / Thank You Sgt Sal Giunta. (NC)
« on: November 14, 2010, 07:41:20 PM »

Just wanted to say "I wanna be "just average"" like Sal Giunta, an Iowa soldier who is being awarded the Medal of Honor. The first since the Vietnam War.

What a remarkable young man. He represents everything our country NEEDS to be.  Yep, I aspire be "average"  like him.  (If you don't understand, watch the following links)

Thank you Mr. Giunta. Thank you.

The Big Show / Everybody but us (NC related)
« on: November 11, 2010, 07:22:22 AM »
Just heard of the Dem's idea to reduce our debt:  Raise retirement age to 69, raise federal tax another 15 Cents PER GALLON, reduce Social security payments, reduce medicare payments to hospitals

And not one single peep about reducing the FREE RIDE that every single congressman gets for their "public service". Retirement pay at full salary with increases for cost of living, free medical care for LIFE, along with perks that are "unknown".... all this for being FIRED by tax payers (not being re-elected). 

I don't know about anyone else, but I sure can think of a few "money saving cuts" that are not on the Dem's list...

Misc, For Sale / Calf Table was PERFECT!
« on: October 23, 2010, 07:03:17 PM »
Some of you remember about a year ago, someone advertised wooden calf coffee table on here. Well, I ordered one for a wedding gift. And when I received it, I was blown away. It was perfect.
And the couple was at loss of words.

So, to the folks who made that table:  THANK YOU!!!  And get ready for my next order!!

The Big Show / Calling all Chef's (Telo's, Chambero and others) NC
« on: September 17, 2010, 07:27:14 AM »
I have been baking since I was 5. I have a chocolate chip cookie recipe that is THE BEST but recently (within the last 6 months) the Crisco butter flavor shortening is different. It "melts" at high room temperatures, and my cookies are super flat and a bit oily.  I tried all blue bonnett, but same thing happened.

So, my question to all you regular cooks and bakers: Have you noticed the same thing? I tried to call the companies, but they have denied changing the "recipe" for their product!   I am guessing the removed some of the trans fat to make it "healthy".... if I wanted "healthy" I probably wouldn't be making CCC!!!

The Big Show / Bible vs. Koran
« on: September 09, 2010, 07:08:23 AM »
I have to think to myself :   If a church or another group had planned to burn the Holy Bible, would there be such gibberish about blowing people up? Would there be such protest? Would obama be speaking out against it? Would anyone care?

The Big Show / Sale Catalogs - Straight off the press
« on: August 27, 2010, 06:56:13 PM »
So it is sale season, and my mail box is stuffed with sale catalogs. I find it utterly amazing what you can read in these catalogs! I mean really, what are some of these people thinking when they write this stuff?
I thought I would start a thread with all the crazy things you can find and read in a sale catalog. You do not need to mention the actual catalog, just the quotes!!

1. "A complete and total dispersal sale"  then later in the same catalog "retaining semen interest to use in their herd"  (hard to AI when you supposedly are selling completely and totally out)
2. "All cattle will sell as is, where is with no guarantees"  and later in the same catalog "none of these cows will be pregnancy checked due to the closeness of the AI dates to the sale"    AI dates: May   Sale: Mid Sept.   (that 4 mos!! - can they not preg check or what?)
3. "Tremendous female that has  unfortunately lost her calf the last few years..."  (I'm at a loss of words over this one!)
4. "The commercial cattleman do not need to worry about defects"  then later in the catalog  "these heifers are being sold without registration papers because the are potential defect carriers...."  (Aren't heifers without registration papers commercial?)
5. "These two heifers are sired by the most popular bull XXX, and should be in your trailer when headed home."  (Only 2 head of out 150+ head offered were sired by that popular bull)


Can anyone add to this list?

The Big Show / Iowa Sale of Champ
« on: August 22, 2010, 07:11:28 AM »
A great sale with wonderful support from the entire state of Iowa! Many records broke with the grand steer bringing 45,000. I didn't get the other prices but if I recall the lamb and hog also set records. Nice job to all.

Please explain your answer. Also, I know premier and lister clippers come in different sizes so tell me which one you have or prefer.
How easy is it to change blades on your choice?  Tools needed?
Thanks

The Big Show / Go ARIZONA - Defend yourself!!
« on: July 06, 2010, 05:42:25 PM »
I wish Arizona the best of luck defending their RIGHT to defend their state against illegals.

Shame on obama for even THINKING of taking them to court (let alone actually DOING IT), when they should be thanking Arizona for doing THEIR job!!! 


GO ARIZONA GO!!! I wish we had their Governor!!

The Big Show / Happy Independence Day for America!!
« on: July 03, 2010, 09:05:23 AM »
Happy 4th to all!!  I know my country has many faults, but it has so many more strengths!  I wouldn't live anywhere else (Ok, I might CONSIDER Australia)

My plans:  Having a few friends over. Grilling beef tenderloin, garden fresh veggies (green beans, red potatos, broc, carrots, yellow summer squash)  in a grilling pan next to it with real butter. Homemade bread with homemade stawberry freezer jam. Black raspberry fluff. Hot Fudge butter brickle ice cream dessert.  And then marshmallow hersey dessert at fireworks time!

What's everyone elses plans?

(I forgot the sweet corn! Can't forget the sweet corn!!)

The Big Show / High School bullying - NC
« on: May 25, 2010, 10:42:45 AM »
To all high school students:  As a teacher and member of a bully task force, I am seeking suggestions and ideas on how to handle bullying in high school.
What would you suggest to stop bullying?
How would you educate kids to NOT bully?
How would you feel comfortable reporting bullying?
How should the bullier be punished?
Any additional thoughts on bullying or being bullied?
ADDED QUESTION: What is your definition of "bullying"? What exactly IS bullying?

Due to the sensitive nature of some of the comments that might be made, feel free to PM me with your ideas.
I want to hear from both sides if possible.

THANK YOU.
