Where I live, if you wander far enough off the road to get to my house, the dogs would let you know long before any sign would help you out.
Makes me proud of my four legged friends, and I was reminded the other day just how valuable they are to me.
A friend of mine had told me his wife had gotten up with their new baby in the middle of the night, and was standing in the kitchen looking out of their window over the sink and could make out 3 shadows moving around his work truck.
She ran down the hall to wake him and he ran into the yard with his shotgun and scared them off, but not before they had taken some power tools and siphoned some gas from his truck and their family van.
The first thing he asked me after telling his story was could he borrow one of my dogs for a few days, and I had to say no. Not because I am greedy or mean, but I have been telling him for years he needed a dog to run around his place and keep an eye on things.
As I write this, a little after midnight, my door is unlocked and the keys are in my truck, and I really feel sorry for anyone that would want to come around and have a look for themselves.
I also have some sweet tea and Carrot cake beside me, but the watchdog laying here inside the house just might not wake up if you want some.

Not long ago I did a post about food storage, and using 5 gallon buckets to store dried foods for future use.
Let me ask again, how many buckets do you have around your house ?
How many of you say to yourselves that it can't happen ? Things will never get that bad.
Have you looked at the news in the last few days ?
Weather your a fan of oil or not, we need it to function today as a society, and when that one element is taken away, or even made so expensive that we can't afford to buy it, how will that impact your life ?
When the cost of shipping a gallon of milk or a bag of potato's becomes to expensive, and the stores become bare, or contain food that is priced so high that we cannot afford it, where will that leave the average family ?
Everyone that has been to a grocery store in the last few months has seen a rise in prices, and anyone that has stopped for gas has watched that climb week after week.
When does it reach the point that it cost us more to get to work, or we have to leave the milk on the shelf ?
A few bags of rice, maybe some extra pasta, anything put aside now can make a difference when we reach the point that we look into our wallets and realize there is nothing left.

Pretty interesting view...
For those that don't know about history ... Here is a condensed version:
Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters/gatherers.
They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter.
The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel.The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:
1 . Liberals
Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery.That's how villages were formed.
Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to BBQ at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement..
Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly BBQ's and doing the sewing, fetching, and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement.
Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. They became known as girlie-men. Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of Democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that conservatives provided.
Over the years conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant.
Liberals are symbolized by the jackass for obvious reasons.
Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish
but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard
liberal fare.. Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of their women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most are social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers, in Hollywood, and group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat.
Conservatives drink domestic beer, mostly Bud, Coors, or Miller. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks,construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, engineers, corporate executives, athletes, members of the military, airline pilots and generally anyone who works productively.
Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living.
Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers
and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans
are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals
remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America .. They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a
business of trying to get more for nothing.
Here ends today's lesson in world history:
It should be noted that a Liberal may have a momentary urge to
angrily respond to the above.
A Conservative will simply laugh and be so convinced of the absolute
truth of this history.
I really don't think I could have told it better myself.

Just across the Harry Nice Bridge from where I live, in Laplata Maryland, a soldier came home to rest.
The Westboro Church had decided that they were coming to take away the honor from this man that he deserved.
What had started out as friends and family on facebook pages, and grew into the event that you see into this clip above.
Not politicians, not union organisers, just regular people that took a stand and said no.

MICRO CHIP IMPLANT ALLOWS TERRORISTS TO SPEAK TO GOD
THE PATRIOTIC MICRO CHIP is intended to be implanted in terrorists.
The implant is specifically designed to be injected in the forehead.
When properly installed, it will allow the one implanted, to speak to God.
It comes in various sizes:
The exact size of the implant will be selected by a well-trained and highly skilled technician, who will also make the injection. No anesthetic is required.
The implant may or may not be painless. Side effects, like headaches and nausea, aches, and pains are extremely temporary.
Some bleeding or swelling may occur at the injection site. In most cases, you won't even notice it.
I don't know who comes up with these, but you got to love it

"Well gosh Delbert, what the heck is she sayin ? What Fire ? "
I mean, come on, how much longer do we sit back and allow the stereotype to go on ?
I got this the other day, and it make you think about who the real Americans are
You might be a redneck if: It never occurred to you to
be offended by the phrase, 'One nation, under God..'
You might be a redneck if: You've never protested about seeing
the 10 Commandments posted in public places.
You might be a redneck if: You still say ' Christmas'
instead of 'Winter Festival.'
You might be a redneck if: You bow your head when
You might be a redneck if: You stand and place your
hand over your heart when they play the National Anthem
You might be a redneck if: You treat our armed forces
veterans with great respect, and always have.
You might be a redneck if: You've never burned an
American flag, nor intend to.
You might be a redneck if: You know what you believe
and you aren't afraid to say so, no matter who is listening.
You might be a redneck if: You respect your elders and
raised your kids to do the same.
You might be a redneck if: You'd give your last dollar to
Lets add to this, shall we ?
You might be a redneck if : In spite of the names you were called, or the derogatory way you were treated, you still tell your abuser to stand behind you so that you can defend them.
I just wonder if those with the loudest voice will be the first to stand and fight when the time comes ?
What do you think ?
Yeah, I thought that too, but it's bow season around here, so we have to go knock down some Bambi's and rip out the innards, then pull the hides off, then butcher them up.
Hey, out here in the country we live in the real world.
The rest of you go have fun at the Food Lion or Giant.
