Why I must be single

I was shopping at the local supermarket where I selected: A half-gallon of 2% milk, a carton of eggs, a quart of orange juice, a head of lettuce, a 2 lb. can of coffee, a 1 lb. package of turkey-bacon. As I was unloading my items on the conveyor belt to check out, a drunk standing behind me watched as I placed the items in front of the cashier. While the cashier was ringing up the purchases, the drunk calmly stated, 'You must be single.' I was a bit confused by this proclamation, but I was intrigued by the derelict's intuition, since I indeed had never found "The One". I looked at the six items on the belt and saw nothing particularly unusual about my selections that could have tipped off the drunk to my marital status. Curiosity getting the better of me, I said, 'Yes you are correct. But how on earth did you know that?' The drunk replied, 'Cause you're ugly'

Jellico, Tn - Offroad Adventures

I've been invited to an invitation only offroad park in northern Tennessee. So far north it's practically Kentucky. We're leaving this Friday at 4am. I usually can't take my Jeep on rides that far but I've been offered a place on Keith's double trailer. I suppose he's taking any one of his two FAR superior rigs. It will be a honor to be on the same trailer as him. For those who don't know Keith Bailey is the owner of Offroad Connection in Fultondale. We intend on doing some trails cutting on Friday, then riding on Saturday, coming back Sunday. So a little work, a little riding and alot of fun! Josh is riding with me so you know I'll be fine. There are alot of people coming up. This place is like 9000 acres of privately owned wilderness. Check back next week for pictures and updates.

Bouldering update

I've been climbing alot more recently. In fact 3 of the past 5 days. Albeit has not been hard climbing, I have been bouldering. My back is loosening up and I feel my core strengthening up again. Maybe HP40 tomorrow with Sarah!!

Jeff and I spent the last couple days at this small roof at Shades Crest where he is trying his next "process". It's amazing to watch. Check his blog for further details/pictures.

Gas prices. Up..down..hurricanes..$4.00/gallon..what is really going on here. Well it safe to assume I have no answers. I will tell you this though. It's not a good sign that gas prices are going down. Huh? Think of gas prices as an indicator or the economy right now, a thermometer of sorts. If gas prices are going down the economy is getting cold.
Americans drove 10.4 billion miles less in Sept. 2008 than in Sept. 2007.

$1.89/gal at the Chevron down the street.

$0.12/gal in Venezuela,Caracas

It's not the Green Tom show

Tom Green should be returning any day now to his regularly scheduled 8pm (Pacific Time) internet based talk show. He took quite a while off to complete his quiz/game show on Planet Green called "Go for the Green". I highly suggest checking it on him as I have before. Although it was rumored for a while that he would be taking over for Conan (Late Night), the job has been given to Jimmy Fallon transitioning sometime in 2009. Personally I would have chosen Tom. He receives alot of crap from so called critics but will always be considered the pioneer of shock humor.

Go here to try your luck at the internet version of the game "Go for the Green". Just enter a screen name and away you go!


Updating Update.

I'm back and have alot to talk about. Things are gonna get juicy around here. I'm going to start touching on more sensitive topics. With exception of religion and politics there will be no holds barred. I've been ruthlessly searching the web for off the wall topics, viral videos and must see websites and will be posting constantly over the next couple of months. The whole experience here will begin to change including the look. Thanks for stopping by!!
