Iditarod 2023

Many refer to the Iditarod as “The Last Great Race on Earth,” and on March 4th, the arduous race kicked off. 33 mushers began the 1,000-mile race through the cold and snow of Alaska. The race begins in downtown Anchorage, Alaska, and finishes in Nome, Alaska. The mushers ride in a sled pulled by teams of about 16 sled dogs who play an especially important role, they work together to pull their musher through the Alaskan snow and across the finish line.

There is a special meaning behind the race – it honors the sled dog team of 1925 that raced hundreds of miles to deliver medicine to sick children in Nome. The dogs saved many lives that year, and each year the race reminds Alaskans of when sled dogs were the main transportation of the north. Musher Ryan Redington was the first to cross under the Burled Arch finish line this year, the native Alaskan is the grandson of the co-founder of the race, Joe Redington, Sr.

He completed the race in 8 days, 21 hours, 13 minutes, and 58 seconds. After the race Redington chose two of his strongest dogs, Sven and Ghost, to be honored along with him on the podium. His winnings include $13,000 from various awards throughout the race, 25 pounds of salmon, Alaskan artwork, and a gourmet five-course meal. He will also take home the largest percentage of the $500,000 winner’s purse. Congratulations to Ryan and his team

Everyday objects that have become OBSOLETE

Editor’s Note: Not really submitted, I found it on the web.

Did you know that when cowboys die they go to a special heaven. Most are surprised to find no pearly gates or saintly bearded man with a white beard. 
Cowboys are special so they are allowed to enter through an old wooden gate on the other side of a rickety wooden bridge under which flows a beautiful creek.
On the other side it’s warm and sunny, the grass is long and green. 
Once through all our aches and pains are gone and we are welcomed by an old white bearded dog.  Once in you’ll be greeted by all the dogs and horses w
you’ve known and loved over the years who will coming to meet you.

Everything is good.

Cool ! Old cars


An elderly man just nudges the rear end of an expensive sports car.

Enraged, the driver hops out of his car and confronts the old man.

“Look what you did to my car” he yells. “You’re gonna give me $10,000 right now or I’m gonna beat you to a bloody pulp!”

“Oh my” says the old man, “I don’t have that kind of money. Let me call my son, he trains dolphins and he’ll know what to do.”

“Dolphins ?”, the other driver huffs, while rolling his eyes.

The old man pulls out his phone, dials his son and just as the son answers, the irate man snatches the phone away from the old man.

“So, YOU’RE a dolphin trainer, huh?

Well, your old man here just rear ended my car and I need $10,000 right now or I’m gonna beat you and your old man to a bloody pulp”.

“I’ll be there in 10 minutes,” says the voice calmly on the other end.

Exactly ten minutes later a jeep pulls up, a guy hops out and proceeds to pulverize the bully, leaving him in a bloody heap on the side of the road.

When he’s finished, he walks over to his father and says:

“for the LAST TIME Dad…. I train SEALS…. NAVY SEALS…. not Dolphins !”

Ukrainian children taken to Russia brings back fear, memories of a similar Nazi effort

Early last October, a smiling senior Kremlin official named Maria Lvova-Belova disembarked from a Russian military jet in Moscow with 53 children she claimed were orphans she’d rescued from the war zone in the contested Donbas region of Ukraine.

The “orphans,” ranging in age from nine months to five years, would soon join 350 others who had been adopted, and begin their new lives in Russia, the Kremlin said, as part of President Vladimir Putin’s ambitious effort to place children from war-torn Ukraine with families in Russia.

According to Putin’s office , the head of the Russian-occupied Donetsk oblast had “requested their evacuation to safe areas of the country,” claiming that some of the children “need lifesaving assistance and rehabilitation.” READ MORE HERE

More: International Criminal Court issues first Ukraine-related war crimes arrest warrant. For Vladimir Putin

U.S. and Ukrainian officials portray the trip by Lvova-Belova, Putin’s presidential commissioner for children’s rights, as something far more sinister. They say Lvova-Belova is the public face of one of the most distressing consequences of Russia’s year-long war in Ukraine: The deportation, including by coercion and force, of potentially tens of thousands of Ukrainian children without their families.

On Friday, The International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for Putin and Lvova-Belova over their alleged involvement in the unlawful deportation and transfer of Ukrainian children from occupied areas of Ukraine to Russia.

The ICC, which is based in The Hague, Netherlands, alleges Putin and Lvova-Belova are responsible for war crimes.

 Thoughts about reality, and a free society.

A guy looked at my Corvette the other day and said,

“I wonder how many people could have been fed for the money that sports car cost?

I replied I’m not sure;

it fed a lot of families in Bowling Green, Kentucky who built it,

it fed the people who make the tires,

it fed the people who made the components that went into it,

it fed the people in the copper mine who mined the copper for the wires,

it fed people in at Caterpillar who make the trucks that haul the copper ore.

It fed the trucking people who hauled it from the plant to the dealer

and fed the people working at the dealership and their families.

BUT,… I have to admit, I guess I really don’t know how many people it fed.

That is the difference between capitalism and the welfare mentality.

When you buy something, you put money in people’s pockets and give them dignity for their skills.

When you give someone something for nothing, you rob them of their dignity and self-worth.

Capitalism is freely giving your money in exchange for something of value.

Socialism is having the government take your money against your will and give it to someone else for doing nothing.

I think this is well written and well thought out

If you agree please send it to your friends.

If you don’t agree just delete it and have a nice day.

Normal Fire Department Uses Tacos To Educate On Weather Lingo

The Normal Fire Department may have just finally ended the confusion between a tornado watch and warning … with tacos.

Normal Fire went viral with a May 3 post on Facebook that likened the differences between a tornado watch and tornado warning to the making of tacos. It was conceived in part by Normal Fire communications director Matt Swaney. It’s been shared over 6,000 times.

In weather terms, a tornado or thunderstorm watch occurs when the atmospheric settings are ripe for such an event to occur. A warning occurs when a tornado or thunderstorm is currently happening and people need to seek shelter.

Normal Fire’s post made the analogy of a tornado watch being when you have all the ingredients to make tacos readily available. A tornado warning occurs when “We are having tacos. Right now.”

This is not the first time Normal Fire has tried to teach safety online, but it is the first time any of its posts have received this much digital attention.

“We did one last year with cupcakes, but apparently people like tacos a lot more,” said Swaney, describing the typical social media reach.

The post has spread outside of Facebook and has reached multiple different social media platforms, helping people of all ages stay safe in the event of a storm.

“It has hit TikTok now, which my kids tell me is pretty important,” said Swaney.

There are two videos on TikTok likening storm watches and warnings to tacos; both have more than 150,000 views.

The original post can be found on the Normal Fire Department’s Facebook page.


Cheryl and I went to the auction in Cork the other week and one of the first exhibits we stopped at was the breeding bulls. We went up to the first pen and there was a sign attached that said, ‘THIS BULL MATED 50 TIMES LAST YEAR’ Cheryl playfully nudged me in the ribs ……smiled and said, ‘He mated 50 times last year, that’s almost once a week.’ We walked to the second pen which had a sign attached that said, ”THIS BULL MATED 150 TIMES LAST YEAR’ Cheryk gave me a healthy jab and said, ‘WOW~~That’s more than twice a week ! ………..You could learn a lot from him.’ We walked to the third pen and it had a sign attached that said, in capital letters, ‘THIS BULL MATED 365 TIMES LAST YEAR ‘Cheryl was so excited that her elbow nearly broke my ribs, and said, ‘That’s once a day ..You could REALLY learn something from this one.’ I looked at her and said, ‘Go over and ask him if every time was with the same old cow.’ My condition has been upgraded from critical to stable
