What happens when all the plans you made fall apart, you’re middle aged (50+) and you are faced with starting over? I don’t have all the answers... but it looks like I’m going to have to start figuring it out.
What to do with this whole election debacle?
So we had to talk about it at some point. Yes, this episode is about the election and what I see as real issues moving forward. Democrat or Republican, Anarchist or Libertarian, we're all in this mess tegether.
I know many of us are feeling uncomfortable right now, but perhaps that means its time to make some serious changes to preserve our republic and start rebuilding some sense of unity.
On the other hand, stocking up on guns and ammo might also be a good idea.
Leftovers from the fridge...and other stuff
No, there are no recipies here about what to do with left overs, its more a compilation of topics and thoughts that have been building up for a while.
Now don't you worry, not a single word about the election, we're an election discussion free zone here. Not because I didn't want to say anything about it, but want to perhaps spend more time putting thoughts together on that.
So...without further delay, we'll be talking about football, cars, insurance and getting up on the right side of the dirt.
Have an amazing day and if you're interested in following me on Parler @chbenton or Curtis Benton on MeWe.
Be Blessed and go out and grab that brass ring!
Friday, Football, Politics, and Freedom in the Fall
When your favorite team takes the field, you hope that both sides are competitive and its a fair match. Unfortunately, our media and Big Tech are putting their sizable fingers on the scale today.
Know your rights, respect the rights of those around you, and get out and enjoy the fall...and while you're at it Go Vote!
As to my pick for the Georgia v Alabama contest this weekend... I believe you're going to see Alabama struggle against the intense defense of the UGA Bulldawgs. I believe that Najee Harris is going to put up some points, but the Dawgs will hold him to under 150 yards in total offense.
My pick is the Dawgs over the Tide 23-17 (current Vegas line is 4.5pts)
** If the Dawgs defense is able to get to Mac Jones (Bama QB), I think it could get ugly...28-10 **
Getting Back on the Horse...Go Get em
When you're out there on your own its easy to get side tracked.... in a good way or a bad way. But then you still have to get back up on the horse. Today is Monday and Day 1 of this week. We are going to go out and kill it this week... going to give it big effort and hope for big results!
If you're wondering why things aren't happening for you...perhaps its a matter of consistent effort. The effort comes before the payoff.
Be blessed! Go Vote and have a wonderful week!
We are so much more than a social media update
Have you wondered why your spirits fail? Why you feel alone and isolated?
Perhaps because we ARE ALONE AND ISOLATED!
Our generation was not brought up on facebook updates and instagram or twitter posts. We grew up as part of a social community. That group of boys we played cowboys and indians with, that group of friends who played kick the can and rode bikes with through local trails.
We have accepted a life of self isolation and virtual community. This is simply not how we were designed by our creator. We are designed to be social, to assist and care for others... And this just doens't really work in an online world.
Get out there this week and make a connection. Have a beer with friends, go bowling or see a movie. We need to take back our society and re-establish our human connections.
Red, White and Gratitude
We all know where we were 19 years ago today. We still feel that wound in our hearts and cry at the images that will never leave our minds. In 19 years we've gone from a country united together as Americans to something that resembles a third world country in some of our cities.
A special podcast this week to celebrate perhaps the one thing that can start bringing us back together.... Gratitude.
I'm an American and I will never understand the depths of the price that has been paid by the millions of soliders, military members, first responders, law enforcement officers, and everyday heros who have given all to preseve the freedom and opportunities that we enjoy.
It's time we say THANK YOU...to everyone. We have so much to be thankful for in this country, and if you're not an American, you can still be thankful for all the little and big things that makes your life what it is.
