Small Town Life - Cattle Auction

I have written before how I enjoy going to the small town cattle auctions. Below is a video that I took at a cattle auction and posted on YouTube. The video is fairly grainy since it was taken with my cell phone. However, I still find it interesting to listen to the chant of the auctioneer and try to see what he is saying.

When I go to the auction I find that I sometimes forget to watch the cattle that are going through to be sold and just find my self almost hynotized by the chant of the auctioneer. Listen and watch to see what you think! Click below.

Cracking Up -Be Oyster Informed, Cautious, Smart, Sure

What did one oyster say to the other oyster as they were crossing the road?

I dont know what did one oyster say to the other oyster as they were crossing the road?

Was that Chicken crossing the road a real babe or am I just too full of myself?

Think about that one!

Gulf oysters are a great delight to eat but when you are eating undercooked or raw oysters you need to be oyster aware.

Why do we need to be oyster aware? Because, whether you eat oysters in moderation or by the dozen, these delightful mollusks provide a low calorie protein that are an excellent source of zinc, vitamin B-12, and omega-3 fatty acids. That is the good part.

You need to know that while providing the good part that oysters also while oysters are not a serious threat to most healthy individuals, eating raw or undercooked oysters by at-risk individuals may cause serious illness or even death. This illness or death is caused from Vibrio vulnificus bacteria. If you have liver disease, diabetes or a weak immune system, you should avoid raw oysters.

So there you have it. But what can you do about this if you love oysters. That is where the website comes into play.
It gives you the dos and dont's of eating oysters. But the site is not about the negative. The site is about the positive, giving you recipes and many other things about the oyster and how to best consume.

Check out the site if you love oysters.

Life in America - Sometimes slow

Life in America has been a little slow posting lately. Here is why!
  • I have been concentrating on developing another blog.
  • Things at the real job have been a little taxing
  • First of a new year
  • Last of an old year
  • Tired
  • Old
  • Bored
  • You give the other reasons!

We have all been there.

My thoughts for now.

Tuesday, February 5, 2008 -Storing & Shipping for Online Business

What a great idea it is to have a virtual address and mail forwarding. Why you ask. Lets assume that you are an e-commerce startup business out of your small office or home office. You could use this idea to store and ship your products. For example if you are starting an online business you might soon need place to store products. Your living room might be quite small and it is not economical to hire an employee to ship your products.

Well then to the rescue. Their company can help. They state that they love to work with e-commerce start ups. They can store products in their warehouse and ship on your behalf. They also operate mail forwarding centers in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Memphis.

Something else that they provide is a service for international customers who like to shop in the USA, but sellers maynot offer international shipping. They can help and forward packages to those international customers.

Sounds like something that will be beneficial for many people. Check it out!

Presidential Rhyme

President Hillary or President Obama - I don't know
Go Ask your Mama.

I'm not prejudice - a woman or a black.
My problem is with the integrity they lack.

Rudy or Mitt, John or even Mike
Look at my blog and guess who I like.

They are all in a frenzy to get out the vote
But who could best the weight of this country tote

I believe the morals of my man Mike
Might be what sways me and what I like.

But if it comes down to President John McCain
Do it and lets get over this election Pain.

(just a meager attempt at rhyme}
