Give genuine thanks for everything you encounter and see how you feel in minutes, and see what happens in the space of days.

When you are knee deep shoveling manure – take a deep breath and smell the gravy, because that is where you are supposed to be at that moment in time.

One person’s outhouse is another person’s honey wagon.

Britain goes into the Red –

Posted by admin on Apr 22, 2009 in Uncategorized

This coming year Britain will need to borrow 180 Billion to stay afloat.

Where does this money come from?  Bonds and Gilts- with the promise of a payout to investors.

The year after 100+ Billion, and again, and again, and again.  For how long? At what cost to the taxpayers, their children and grandchildren?

The tax rate for over £150k in income is now 50%.

Mr. Brown- your outta here Mr. PM.   Cameron may make hasty judgements without investigation- but he holds his own at the box rather well.

This is all beyond a joke.  It is surreal.

What is the solution, as the banks, the markets, and the gobment do not have a solution?


Three shots for Chesty Puller

Plantation, FL — Last week police were called to investigate an
attempted armed robbery:

The 71-year-old retired Marine who opened fire on two robbers at a
Plantation, FL, Subway shop late Wednesday, killing one and critically
wounding the other, is described as John Lovell, a former helicopter
pilot for two presidents. He doesn’t drink, he doesn’t smoke, and he works out everyday. Mr. Lovell was a man of action Wednesday night.

According to Plantation police, two masked gunmen came into the Subway at 1949 N. Pine Rd. Just after 11 p.m. There was a lone diner, Mr. Lovell,
who was finishing his meal.. After robbing the cashier, the two men attempted to shove Mr. Lovell into a bathroom and rob him as well. They got his money, but then Mr. Lovell pulled his handgun and opened fire. He shot one of  the thieves in the head and chest and the other in the head.

When police arrived, they found one of the men in the shop, K-9 units
found the other in the bushes of a nearby business.. They also found cash
strewn around the front of the sandwich shop according to Detective Robert
Rettig of the Plantation Police Department.

Both men were taken to the Broward General Medical Center , where one,
Donicio Arrindell, 22, of North Lauderdale died. The other, 21-year-old
Frederick Gadson of Fort Lauderdale is in critical but stable condition.

A longtime friend of Lovell was not surprised to hear what happened. The
friend said, ”He’d give you the shirt off his back, but he’d be mad as
hell if someone tried to take the shirt off your back.” Mr. Lovell was a
pilot in the Marine Corps, flying former Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon
B. Johnson. He later worked as a pilot for Pan Am and Delta.

He is not expected to be charged authorities said. ”He was in fear for
his life,” Detective Rettig said, “These criminals ought to realize that
most men in their 70’s have military backgrounds and aren’t intimidated by

Something tells me this old Marine wasn’t ‘in fear for his life’, even
though his life was definitely at risk. The only thing he could be
charged with is participating in an unfair fight. One 71 – year young Marine
against two punks. Two head shots and one center body mass shot – outstanding shooting! That’ll teach them not to get between a Marine and his meal.

Don’t you just love a story with a happy ending?

Florida law allows eligible citizens to carry a concealed weapon.
