Comments Off on Gardening…



Added some annuals to my bed out front. I had to make this around the water trunk as the contractor effed up and made it stick too high out of the ground. Anyway, hopefully, they’ll do well this summer. I’ve been building beds w/ rock from the lots around here.I have a big flat one, I need to get it over here for a stepping stone. Might need some help.

Also, removing the bricks I have around the trees and will be doing that with rock. Last will be my Roman herb garden inspired by my friend Mark’s… It’s been a bit hot though. Maybe soon.

Have to go to Richmond tomorrow. Hope that is fruitful–the guy down there is so against the computers. It’s sad really. Don’t wanna dwell on that.

It just ain’t there


You always see on TV or movies how women support their man. Well, I just don’t see it. Okay, maybe 1 in a 1000 do that. Most times, it just gets nastier and nastier. I am sorry, but control freaks just aren’t cool. Or threats… if you don’t… and the thing is, I see this with most people I know. The silent treatment or the “cut your nose off to spite your face” those are good tricks. And I’m a bastard? Oh sure.

Sadly, that’s about all this blog has become… I don’t really write in it because I am just too angry to write anything decent. And really, the whole world is turned to shit.

You don’t wish to see me write about our corrupt president. Nor about the absolutely stupid people out there. I don’t have this idea that I’m some modern day Mark Twain like a couple people I know. I am just me. Tired of the crap and looking to have a decent life.

I just want to write.


Right now, I have some hope, maybe a light at the end of the tunnel, but it’s not guaranteed. I could be worse off and like everyone else, I have some stuff I HAVE to pay soon. My last job, the guy that owned that company stiffed me out of about $20.K… now, I’m not alone, he did it to a LOT of people. Karma WILL get him. Anyway, moving on, I just am saddened. Why do we work? What are we doing? I certainly do NOT live to work — I work to live and even that, is getting hard.

Maybe I’m just babbling, I don’t know. It’s depressing. I don’t see a bright future. Do you? My hands are getting worse, to the point it’s hard to open doors and stuff w/ my right hand ­čś« Sucky huh? I don’t want to be old dammit. And work. Right now, I am implementing an electronic on board recorder (E-Logs really) for our trucks. In some ways it’s going good, but in others, it’s a struggle to get entrenched people to change, even for the better. I think we are slowly getting things hammered out, but sometimes, it’s just SO frustrating.

Soon, I will be going to Reno for my Dad’s memorial… Haven’t been there in a long time. Miss most of the family.

I feel like dogshit. Just plain dogshit. I woke up with a headache and have felt like shit all day. Fighting w/ work computers and drivers doesn’t help. My eyes feel like they are pressured up and burning. I dunno, just like shit.

Frustrated by lots of things and as usual, money is getting tighter. And really, what’s up w/ that? Most people I know are suffering and we all make more money, but my brother Jimmy Wise says that inflation is like 45%. I don’t know about that, but the Orwellian double-speak coming from our government and bad president just makes me wanna hurl.

Colour and the way forward


I posted this on facebook… Prob should be here too.

I don’t care what colour anyone is. I am tired of that shit. I want a conservative. I want someone like Allen West or maybe Herman Cain. It AIN’T about colour — it’s about ethics and ideas and a way to fix our country. Not shitheads like our current president, his nutty-ass vice president nor the idiots (for the most part) in congress who just don’t get it. It’s all really JUST LIKE Animal Farm.

As to people being offended, no, stop it. The race card is WAY overplayed. As it is now, people don’t care anymore. Show me what you have to offer. Show me HOW you will fix my effing country that has been PISSED AWAY by a number of really BAD decisions, and really taking off about 2006.

Bye Dad.


My father, Mike Wise passed away on April 18th, 2014. I’m going to miss him. In the end, it was congestive heart failure, brought about with complications from his diabetes… The diabetes had given him an increasing dementia and he had been I the hospital for the congestive heart failure. They had been telling him he was going home, and had set up hospice care, telling my step mother he had six months. That turned into two weeks, then one week and then, after he was home, he stopped eating and that night she called me that he had passed after midnight. I miss him.

it was sad and horrifying to see how this caused his increasing descent and in someways I am happy he is in a better place (as people say)… He believed in Christianity and I hope he’s there… I’m not religious and am not going to discuss all that.

We will be having a memorial for him June 22nd in Reno. Vaya con Dios Dad!

Everyone’s Suffering


As my brother Jim says, everyone is suffering these days. It’s seen in their eyes and by careful reading of what they say. What has caused this? Partly, I think by a lowering of our standards of living… What has caused this? A lot of it is bad government, not taking care of things that have needed doing. I see, right now, that Pennsylvania is trying to raise the gas tax .28 a gallon… Do these fucktards think this will help? Just like with Obammy and gas, when gas goes up, our economy and standard of living goes down.

Other than short upticks, things just seem to be getting shittier. How? Why? Partly, it seems we all realize that someone has squandered the riches of our country. The lead we had, the prosperity. Mainly, I think most of us know our “leaders” have led us down the path to destruction. Bush was barely holding the line when he got stuck with a democrat congress. When they suddenly had control of it all, they just squandered it. (Yes, I think Bush was better than he gets credit for). This idiot we have now, has tripled the National Debt. Tripled. How does that get paid off? It won’t. What will happen? I don’t know…. Makes your brain sizzle. I don’t have a solution, do you?

Health Care


Anyone who knows me, knows I am for a single-payer system. I thought “Okay, now we’ll get health care in this country, even if I don’t like Obama.” Of course, I should have known he and his cronies were more after shaking up and destroying what we had and giving us something much worse — to further us along in his attempts to bring America down to the level of his native Kenya.

I see no good coming out of this and all the problems are only showing it to be what it is, a poorly hatched plan to control people once again. A bad president put in office by people who can’t even understand the issues. It’s like we nee dot pass a law requiring voters to take a test before they can vote. Oh no, that will disenfranchise the stupid, say the liberales. So what, say I. Dumb people shouldn’t get to vote. Learning isn’t hard. Read. “But ah don’ laik me no boooks, theys is full of too many wurdzzz, ah don’ laik me wordzzz.” Which is it in a nutshell. The simpletons survive on a mental diet of American Idol, the Khardasians and Honey Boo-Boo… Ugh.

Sadly, I have no answers EXCEPT making people have to take a test. But, they will object, “I am a citizen.” So what, if you can’t understand the issues, you should not have a say until you do. Learn. Or go back to your simpleton TV shows — people don’t even read anymore. Just quick videos on facebook or the news. Sad.

Snakes of the World


Isn’t it interesting how people are? Polite to your face or when they want something, but as soon as they don’t need you anymore, well, that goes away. I dunno, just maybe I’m tired of angry, unhappy people. People who hold grudges for YEARS. Ugh. Sad and it kind of makes you a bit ill. Or not. Just a thought.

Comments Off on The Rise and Fall of the Empire of the Horse

The Rise and Fall of the Empire of the Horse


This is a story that should serve a cautionary tale for those in the realm of business.

The Empire of the Horse
In the beginning, here was the Empire of the Horse, once a promising minor kingdom, it had fell on evyil times due to the leader, Duke Michael not paying his taxes to the Overking. This was a sad thing, as Duke Michael was a good and just leader – his failure being one of discipline.

The Rise of an Empire
In this time of need for the Empire of the Horse, his lordship, Lord Byron came sailing in to save the day with his free use of gold and he did so – soon expanding the Empire and making it one of the greatest in the realm. The streets were paved with gold, all was milk and honey. Lord Byron was assisted in this endeavor by Sir William, the Privy Councillor of State and a fine one he was, ably serving the Empire. Sir William’s wise council served Lord Byron well, tempering his rash decisions and using his knowledge and connections to advance the cause of the Empire. Sir William was assisted by his most gracious and knowledgeable Bailiff, Sir Pawel. The two of these men fairly well served the Empire, bringing success and making the often ill-planned adventures of Lord Byron come together and work out. Mostly, this worked well, though the Empire of the Horse did see a large number of its people rotate in and out of service.

The First Scourge
You, gentle reader, might ask, what happened to the Empire of the Horse? Well, a series of evils befell the fair Empire. The first was Lord Byron’s wife, Looney – a woman dark and full of evyil. Pretentious and mercurial, she and Byron were a poor match. He, a man more suited to less tight-fitting arrangements; she, more controlling and jealous of his life. In the end, “Lady” Looney ended up betraying Lord Byron with an old lover. In her betrayal, she looted the Empire’s treasury and almost caused it to fall at this time. It was only through much desperate action, that the Empire did not fall. There is no curse too fowl for this vain, evyil and pretentious woman. Dark times were coming.

The Second Scourge
Two years after “Lady” Looney was banished from the Empire, a new scourge arrived… The Sire of Lord Byron, the evyil Halitosis returned from exile from the whole Realm and was invited in by Lord Byron. Immediately, Halitosis began to change the way the Empire was run, working to take from the citizens their just due and make their lives more arduous, whilst at the same time, lowering the standards of upkeep for the steeds of the Empire. More and more people left the Empire, either banished at the insistence of Halitosis or resigning service due to his efforts to make them perform dishonorable deeds. Within less than a YEAR, even Sir William, the man who kept the Empire on an even keel was banished at the insistence of the Evyil and dishonorable Halitosis – this was the beginning of the end and all in the realm who truly knew, felt the end was nigh coming. Sir Pawel kept the Empire alive for half and a year more, but even with all his mighty skills, he could not keep the hollow shell that the Empire had become, alive.

The Evyil Halitosis
Halitosis was not just the sire of Lord Byron, he had once been a mighty king, whose greed and capricious ways had caused him to be cast out of his own Kingdom of the Midwestern World and then, after he had built TWO more empires, his never-failing return to his old ways ended up causing these empires to fall too. In the fall of the empires, many, many, MANY people and their families had been hurt and suffered greatly. And thus this cursed man had been cast into the dungeons of the Overking of the Realm for his crimes. But alas, one day, he was allowed to be released and as such, he wormed his way into the mind and heart of Lord Byron. As he came to gain control over Lord Byron, Halitosis brought forth his poisons again and though his dishonor and bad counsel, brought destruction to the Empire of the Horse. And as it collapsed, in the Empire’s hour of need, he slunk away stealing much of the larder and even the stoves that kept the northern part of the Empire warm. Yes, there is a common thread in the fall of four kingdoms. Know ye, NEVER have anything to do with the foul and evyil Halitosis – he is to be regarded as a foul and dishonorable creature and one cane hope, will be cast back into the deepest dungeons by the men of the Overking.

In the End
Eventually, after constantly saying “later” instead of paying his just debts, Lord Byron found that “later” came to visit and ruin was wrought upon the Empire. Again, many loyal supporters were made to suffer along with their families and loved ones – their pensions squandered and their livelihoods ruined. Some of these hurt were even former loyal followers of Halitosis, who had already been greatly harmed by him and his dishonorable ways. Now Lord Byron flees before the justice of the Realm – his life and freedom forfeit if he is brought before the magistrate of the Overking. What has been learned here?

Know ye, the tale will continue, but that evyil still lives on in the Land of Sunshine, where evyil Halitosis resides.
