My weekend

This weekend was a little busy for me, I hoped to do a few things around the house and goof off, I did dishes, ran 4 loads of laundry I got to watched a few cooking shows, I made a big pot of 5 bean Soup, Then I ran to town for Pizza, then it got busy, Our forester had lit off brush piles a week earlier in a 17 acre logged unit and we had some erratic winds Friday night and one of those piles decided to slop over the boundary and burn an extra 1/2 acre of forest floor, So my wife and niece and a family friend had been out hunting and I got back from the Pizza run to find out that our forester had been down and called in the department of forestry (Good Call) so we all went up and mopped on the fire for 4 hours Saturday night and then back on Sunday and mopped on it for another 3 hours, This boy is tired Monday morning, But it was cool cuz every One deferred to me on fire questions.

Chicken Enchiladas

I want chicken enchiladas with green sauce
I make a mean chicken enchilada, simmering chicken thighs in a little sauce till it shreds easily, then I use 50/50 Colby jack and pepper jack, Roll it all up in a flour tortilla shell. Meg likes a little black olive in hers but normally I forgo any extras on them then into the pan with some more cheese and sauce and into the oven at 350 deg. for about 45 min.., MMMMMMMThen a little Tabasco (any kind works for Doug) on them and WATCHOUT,I have made these at the firehouse several times and They always vanish
Ya'll have a good weekend
Be safe and remember
If you catch on fire STOP DROP AND ROLL
If some one else catches on fire laugh like a MOFO at there stupid ass

Saturday stuff

Do you have a song you don't get tired of hearing, I was just listening to this song and I really don't ever get tired of it. It sometimes drives my wife nuts when I identify music groups and albums and the year it came out.
It is so Soggy here In the Willamette (pronounced Wil-lam-it, Damn it )valley right now, Mrs Fyreman is out hunting the elusive The Black-tailed deer with her trusty Boom Stick(she gave it
a nick name...Buckly....it has to do with the quantity of antlered deer she has put in the freezer with it) and I'm hungry for Venison Summer sausage MMMMMMMMM.

Cult movies

What is your hands down favorite cult movie, I like the Rocky Horror picture show and

The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension , but my favorite is The Crow

and Its not really listed as a cult, But it sure has a following, my favorite line is

"Mother is the name for God on the lips and hearts of all children"

written by James O'barr he said it was better than going to therapy for 5 year

"it is always nice to see you"

I like dance Music ...Sorry I have always like anything I can cut a rug to
I have to say this song always makes me stop and tap my toe. The a Capella version was the original but I like this one

My Son



















Sunday will be the 14th of October and that means its My eldest Birthday
He kinda just sprung himself on us without any warning, and that's just how he rolls
He just got a neat piece of paper in the Mail the other day from The United States Government that tells him he is Honorably discharged From the United States National Guard.
Any way we are gonna smoke up some pork ribs and have some coleslaw and homemade
biscuits and candied baby carrots, there goes my weight watches all to hell
Damn he is handsome

My Rock

Pardon me while I get melancholy for a moment

This is the Lady that stands behind me when all else has gone to shit, She has stuck to me like glue through some very rough times and there Is not a price you can put on that. She is a tuff gal
she fell of her horse in high school and broke her pelvis, and got on the horse and rode home DAMN, So when her life stumbles I try very hard to be there for her. There is a song that I listen to once in a while By Rammstein called "Ohne Dich" Without You. Its a very Haunting tune but it's the closest thing I can use to explain how empty I'd be without her
the English translation is a little shaky but it comes through,
Without you I cannot be,
without you,
with you am I also alone,
without you,
without you count ' I the hours,
without you,
with you the seconds stand, are not worth

My Friday afternoon Listen

I love good guitarists, and one of my favorites is a Goofy looking guy named Joe Satriani
He doesn't have mush of a singing voice but Damn if the boy cant burn up the frets.
I think this song is great, makes me want a convertible and tear of over to the coast with it blaring through the speakers

I hit a wall

I Started Weight watchers...and I am feeling pretty good about it, I have been going along ignoring my weight issue and Mrs Fyreman has quitly been increasing the waist size on my britches. Then I tried on my class B dress shirt for the Fyre department and guess what, I couldn't button the sumbitch, I hit the wall folks, I am drawing the line here and I dont want to increase any more. So I find out that the Company I work for has a wellness program and they will foot the bill for Weight Watchers. Well I am all over free like a 12th grade boy and his 10th grade prom date : ) I am going to keep a running tally of my progress on my blog so I will start out by telling you my weigh in weight

336

think happy thoughts for me

My Brand

video

Ok Im a little strange but I like this, I am a Closet Sci Fi Geek

(Hangs head in shame)

PC

Heres a topic

"This political correctness is getting old and killing us."

talk amongst yourselves

We need more like him

PLEASE READ TO THE BOTTOM.......THAT IS WHERE THE MOST POWERFUL STATEMENT IS !!!!
TO THOSE OF YOU NOT FAMILIAR WITH JOE ARPAIO HE IS THE MARICOPA ARIZONA COUNTY SHERIFF AND HE KEEPS GETTING ELECTED OVER AND OVER



THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY:Sheriff Joe Arpaio(In Arizona )who created the" Tent City Jail":
He has jail meals down to 40 cents a serving and charges the inmates for them.

He stopped smoking and porno magazines in the jails.

Took away their weights.

Cut off all but "G" movies.

He started chain gangs so the inmates could do free work on county and city projects.

Then He Started Chain Gangs For Women So He Wouldn't Get Sued For Discrimination.

He took away cable TV Until he found out there was A Federal Court Order that Required Cable TV For Jails. So He Hooked Up The Cable TV Again Only Let In The Disney Channel And The Weather Channel. When asked why the weather channel He Replied, So They Will Know How Hot It's Gonna Be While They Are Working ON My Chain Gangs.

He Cut Off Coffee Since It Has Zero Nutritional Value.When the inmates complained, he told them, "This Isn't The Ritz/Carlton.If You Don't Like It, Don't Come Back.

"He bought Newt Gingrich' lecture series on videotape that he pipes into the jails. When asked by a reporter if he had any lecture series by a Democrat, he replied that a democratic lecture series might explain why a lot of the inmates were in his jails in the first place.


With Temperatures Being Even HotterThan Usual In Phoenix(116 Degrees Just Set A New Record), the Associated Press Reports:About 2,000 Inmates Living In A Barbed-Wire-Surrounded Tent EncampmentAt TheMaricopa County Jail Have Been Given Permission To Strip Down To Their Government-Issued Pink Boxer Shorts.On Wednesday, hundreds of men wearing boxers were either curled up on their bunk beds or chatted in the tents, which reached 138 Degrees Inside The Week Before.Many Were Also Swathed In Wet, Pink Towels As Sweat Collected On Their Chests And Dripped Down To Their PINK SOCKS. "It Feels Like We Are In A Furnace,"Said James Zanzot, An Inmate Who Has Lived In The TENTS for 1 year. "It's Inhumane."

Joe Arpaio,the tough-guy sheriffwho created the tent city and long ago started making his prisoners wear pink, and eat bologna sandwiches, is not one bit sympathetic
He said Wednesday that he told all of the inmates: "It's 120 Degrees In Iraq And Our Soldiers Are Living In Tents Too,And They Have To Wear Full Battle Gear,But They Didn't Commit Any Crimes, So Shut Your Damned Mouths!" Maybe if all prisons were like this one there would be a lot less crime and/or repeat offenders.

Criminals should be punished for their crimes - not live in luxury until it's time for their parole, only to go out and commit another crime so they can get back in to live on taxpayers money and enjoy things taxpayers can't afford to have for themselves.
