The Big Show / Sire Selection
« on: February 07, 2014, 01:22:18 PM »

[\B]I have made the following statement here on SP many many times in the past seven years, but  evidently it has a rough time being accepted.

A very seasoned cattleman and Club Calf producer once explained the truth of correct Show Cattle breeding selection to me, a complete stranger to the show ring as:

"A great Bull will sire great calves with a very select group of cows, but a great Cow has the potential to produce great calves with even a mediocre Bull".
I took his advice to heart, and practiced his method for 17 years before liquidating . With only 9 - 12 cows during those years we raised, showed, and sold many local, state and national champion and reserve heifers as well as some outstanding breeding bulls.

My intent with this post is not to boast or brag, but to educate. It seems to me every other post on SP is WHAT BULL TO USE, rather than what do I need to change, to improve my cow herd.

So, don't waste a lot of time and money on sire selection (Bull of the Day).  Breed strictly for the heritable traits lacking in your cows, individually.[\B]

If anyone takes time to look, they will see that AA no longer lives in OK. In order to be close to the Grandkids, my beautiful bride and I have relocated to Rogers, Arkansas. Now, I need to identify some folks up this way who might need a little help with their Show Calf operations. Of course, as a consultant, I'm offering only brain, no brawn. I believe my pricing to be favorable to the producer as I work for free.

I also need to make the acquaintances of some knowledgeable Fishermen and Duck Hunters in NWA.  Maybe one of these days it will stop snowing, the lakes will warm, and
the Spring spawn will begin. BTW: I'm a casting artificial guy, no bait fishing ( doesn't mean I couldn't be converted)

Devastating afternoon F5 Tornado on the ground for over 11 miles. At least 51 have died, several of those children at school. This killer took an almost identical track as the 1999 F5. Over 200 homes completely leveled!

The Big Show / Christmas Storm
« on: December 21, 2012, 10:56:11 AM »

There was once a man who didn't believe in God, and he didn't hesitate to let others know how he felt about religion and religious holidays, like Christmas. His wife, however, did believe, and she raised their children to also have faith in God and the metaphysical meaning of Jesus The Christ, despite her husband's disparaging comments.

One snowy Christmas Eve, the wife was taking their children to a Christmas Eve service in the farm community in which they lived. She asked him to come, but he refused.

"That story is nonsense!" he said. "Why would God lower Himself to come to Earth through a man called Jesus who became the Christ? That's ridiculous!" So she and the children left, and he stayed home.

A while later, the winds grew stronger and the snow turned into a blizzard. As the man looked out the window, all he saw was a blinding snowstorm. He sat down to relax before the fire for the evening. Then he heard a loud thump.

Something had hit the window. Then another thump. He looked out, but couldn't see more than a few feet. When the snow let up a little, he ventured outside to see what could have been beating on his window. In the field near his house he saw a flock of wild geese.

Apparently they had been flying south for the winter when they got caught in the snowstorm and couldn't go on. They were lost and stranded on his farm, with no food or shelter. They just flapped their wings and flew around the field in low circles, blindly and aimlessly. A couple of them had flown into his window, it seemed.

The man felt sorry for the geese and wanted to help them. The barn would be a great place for them to stay, he thought. It's warm and safe; surely they could spend the night and wait out the storm.

So he walked over to the barn and opened the doors wide, then watched and waited, hoping they would notice the open barn and go inside. But the geese just fluttered around aimlessly and didn't seem to notice the barn or realize what it could mean for them.

The man tried to get their attention, but that just seemed to scare them and they moved further away. He went into the house and came with some bread, broke it up, and made a bread crumb trail leading to the barn. They still didn't catch on.

Now he was getting frustrated. He got behind them and tried to shoo them toward the barn, but they only got more scared and scattered in every direction except toward the barn. Nothing he did could get them to go into the barn where they would be warm and safe.

"Why don't they follow me?!" he exclaimed. "Can't they see this is the only place where they can survive the storm?" He thought for a moment and realized that they just wouldn't follow a human.

"If only I were a goose, then I could save them," he said out loud.

Then he had an idea. He went into barn, got one of his own geese, and carried it in his arms as he circled around behind the flock of wild geese.

He then released it. His goose flew through the flock and straight into the barn and one by one the other geese followed it to safety.

He stood silently for a moment as the words he had spoken a few minutes earlier replayed in his mind: "If only I were a goose, then I could save them!"

Then he thought about what he had said to his wife earlier. "Why would God want to lower Himself to be like us? That's ridiculous!"

Suddenly it all made sense. That is what God had done. We were like the geese--blind, lost, perishing. God had His Son become like us so He could show us the way and enlighten us.

That was the meaning of Christmas, he realized. As the winds and blinding snow died down, his soul became quiet and he pondered this wonderful thought.

Suddenly he understood what Christmas was all about, why Jesus who became the Christ had come, so that we could become the sons and daughters of the Living Christ.

Years of doubt and disbelief vanished like the passing storm. He fell to his knees in the snow, and prayed his first prayer: "Thank You, God, for coming in human form to get me out of the storm!"

The Big Show / Puzzles
« on: November 19, 2012, 04:29:19 PM »

Thinking that no one would reply if this post had the original game names, I did not use E-Scrabble or Word Association in the Subject line.  Now, the few of us Die Hard Steer Planet puzzlers need some recruits.  If you have never played either of the aforementioned games, I highly suggest you give them a try.  Word Association is just a blast to see how creative some can get, and how downright simple others think. And, a few of us fit into both categories. 
On the other hand, E-Scrabble is a true mind stimulator to measure how quickly one can change a word with only 1 letter.

To quote ELP, "Welcome Back my Friends to the Show that never ends!  We're so glad you could attend, come inside, come inside!"  LETS PLAY WORD GAMES!!!!

Just noticed I have received 282 Private Messages since Feb. 2007.  The kicker is that 7 of my first 10 were from Red.  Talk about a One Woman Welcome Committee!!

Too bad so many on this board never had the opportunity to know her.  Thanks for the memories.......................
