No electric prods or tazers were used in the making of this video.

Life is so unpredictable and can change in the blink of an eye. This song makes me feel very thankful for what I have.

Happy Holidays, Joey

When the surreal becomes the news

No job? No health care? Worried about your retirement? (i.e. ending up old, sick and broke)

No worries

The Department of Defense is hiring.


Because endlessly expanding war is America's new growth industry.

Here's Fox News shilling for the military, gushing about what a great employer it is:

* Confidential online mental health assessment.

* Free "stress reduction" programs for children at Fort Bliss?

* "If you love, travel this is definitely for you."

Is it just me...or is this the creepiest "news" story in the long time.

Big Snow of '09


The snowmobile was completely covered.

Skied right out the bike shop door Saturday morning and...

...down to the rail trail. Were I broke tracks for Mandi so she could SKI to work. Her boss was ecstatic as she to is also an avid skier.

Skied right from the house. That has only happened a couple time since we moved to Elkins.


Open for Business.

Big pile of snow just begging for a snow cave!

Happy Winter Solstice, Joey.

Frozen ground...

Dusting of granular snow...

Awesome conditions.

I missed my que so you have to wait for it... its worth it.

Peace, Joey.

Obama the Puppet: The World's Least Powerful Man

It didn't take the Israel Lobby very long to bring President Obama to heel regarding his prohibition against further illegal Israeli settlements on occupied Palestinian land. Obama discovered that a mere American president is powerless when confronted by the Israel Lobby and that the United States simply is not allowed a Middle East policy separate from Israel's.

Obama also found out that he cannot change anything else either, if he ever intended to do so.

The military/security lobby has war and a domestic police state on its agenda, and a mere American president can't do anything about it.

President Obama can order the Guantanamo torture chamber closed and kidnapping and rendition and torture to be halted, but no one carries out the order.

Essentially, Obama is irrelevant.

President Obama can promise that he is going to bring the troops home, and the military lobby says, "No, you are going to send them to Afghanistan, and in the meantime start a war in Pakistan and maneuver Iran into a position that will provide an excuse for a war there, too. Wars are too profitable for us to let you stop them." And the mere president has to say, "Yes, Sir!"

Obama can promise health care to 50 million uninsured Americans, but he can't override the veto of the war lobby and the insurance lobby. The war lobby says its war profits are more important than health care and that the country can't afford both the "war on terror" and "socialized medicine."

The insurance lobby says health care has to be provided by private health insurance; otherwise, we can't afford it.

Two Sundays ago. Mandi showing us how it is done.


Snowy Weekend...


Winter is here!

Lunch time during Sunday hike. Should have went skiing at Whitegrass.

Outside: frigid, frozen,cold, numb.

Inside: verdant, succulent, nutritious, alive.

Winter seems to be here, for now. Rain, snow, sleet, repeat. I love snow. I hate cold rain and wintery mix. Lets pray for snow. Don't forget your vitamin D supplements.

Peace, Joey

What Would Jesus Buy?

It really burns me up when people buy stuff just to buy it. This coming from a guy who owns a retail business. Remember the true reason for the season is not rampant consumerism.


The best ever Craiglist personals ad...

Let's escape from the Illuminati and start an intentional community!

Date: 2009-12-06, 8:01PM

Let's go find some land in a far off rural place, learn to grow food, save seeds, collect and distill water....
Make love, meditate, create amazing things with our powerful minds, spread the word and start a motherfucking revolution!!!

Better than Dylan?

There is a lot of truth in this here song. Does not get much better, to me anyway.
