Cameron Hanes

On Friday, athlete, bow hunter and one, tough competitor in life, Cameron Hanes,  will take on the Moab 240 mile Endurance Run, a 238.3 mile ultra through some of Utah's most challenging terrain. 

Excited to see how he finishes because he simply puts in the work to prepare.

In life, that is nearly 90% of the battle.


Tuesday highlights from America...........

Whenever I think there's a slight chance of hope for this country in the political arena I am forced to remind myself of all the zoo animals that live off the public dole in every big city in America.

OVERRATED in Dallas Texas

I've been in Dallas for less than a year and haven't taken the time to cook at home very often.

We spend a substantial amount of time dining out.  Often.  Very often.

Last Saturday night we dined with friends at the Ritz Carleton at FEARINGS before heading over to listen to Mr. Tim McGraw and Ms. Faith Hill pretend to play their guitars and sing some songs.  

Mr. Dean Fearing stopped by the table to check in.  Nice guy with charm.

The food (and service) was less than stellar.  Those two little chunks of buffalo I was served were not anywhere near worth the price tag.  I have been eating buffalo since I was 12 years old.  Where do they train these cooks?  

Along with Ocean Prime and Water Grille it deserves to be mentioned to save you some of your hard earned money.  

It will be a long time before we go back.

Friday night we had a disaster at Coal Vines around the corner as well.  You would have to pay me to enter again.   The white pizza was uneatable and how about being able to just order a single glass of wine?  Are you kidding me?     No wonder why we questioned there were so many empty tables on a Friday night in Uptown Dallas!  At 63 and having lived on both coasts and raising sons I like to think I know an edible pizza from a non-edible.

Coal Vines. Never again.  Yuck.

United States Congress

I met a fairy who said she would grant me one wish.
Immediately I said, "I want to live forever."
"Sorry," said the fairy, "I'm not allowed to grant eternal life."
"OK," I said, "Then, I want to die after Congress gets its head out of its ass!"
The fairy replied, "You crafty bastard."

Puerto Rico Debt

Puerto Rico's $74 billion of debt is less than 1 month of Fed monetization.

It's only 10.5% of what Paulson & Kashkari gave their pals!

Novel Law Enforcement Action

I've heard that Police Departments in many cities have replaced sirens with the National Anthem to force suspects to stop running and take a knee.  WINK!
