    Puppies vs. Babies! The Ultimate Showdown!

    This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Puppies vs. Babies for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

    Ok! Willy has a dog but now Willy wants a baby.  A Grand Baby that is.  Willy got the word last week that one is on the way.   Well, that makes Willy feel good because right now when Willy goes around his friends they always are showing off pictures on these fancy phones that they have.  Yea! Fancy phones that have fancy pictures and I only have a cheap flip phone.  Yes, they are always showing pictures of their dogs or their babies and grandbabies.  .  One shows pictures of their beautiful puppy.  The other shows pictures of their beautiful baby.  Willy already said that he has a  dog that Willy could show but Willy now has a grand baby coming soon and Willy is ready to show off a picture.   Guess Willy better get the new phone show I can brag about my dog or my phone.

    Question is, which does Willy think is cuter, babies or puppies.   There is a great contest going on that is Puppies vs. Babies online contest.  This means that it is time for you to go out there and help the world decide the truth,Puppies vs. Babies.  You might even want to show them a picture of your puppy or baby. 

    Well, the contest entry is over but you still have time to help the world know whether or not PvB-CuteDar-Green-300x250-Backup.jpg

    the puppy is cuter than the baby. 

    Willy thinks that his hunting dog is cuter than most peoples ugly redneck  baby but that might change when this grand baby comes along.  Willy's daughter even has a beautiful dog but when her baby comes along the dog will take a back seat.  The dog is cuter than your baby but will never be cuter than my grand baby

    Go ahead.  Get out there and vote.  The world deserves to know. 

    Me?  I voted for the cutest hunting dog out there!  That will change when Willy's grandbaby comes along in those camoflouge clothes.

    Deserving Eyes are cooking,

    Willy is cooking up the idea that it is time to get new eyeglasses.   It was not long ago that Willy went to the eye docto.  It was there that they told Willy that his eyes has not changed and he did not need new glasses.  Well, willy agrees that the glasses that he has is fine.  However, Willy believes that he will take this opportunity to get some great sun shades that are prescription.

    This is where a company like Zenni will come in to play.  Willy has found them and has discovered that they make their own brand of glasses and do not sell some of the big time expensive crap that is out there.  Instead they sell their own brand and what is good it appears that these glasses can be every bit as nice as those designer brands.  The best part is that the cost is not there.  Because they do not use big time advertising and the fact that they have their own manufacturing and other great features, gives them the opportunity to bring a great product to the market at a much cheaper price than most.

    So, if you need to cook up a new set of glasses maybe you should check out Zenni.

    Southern Roots

    Post contributed by Leonard Phelps

    Being from the south meant I was really close to my family so when my wife got the job of a lifetime out here in Vegas it was a pretty scary proposition. I was worried to death that things would be so incredibly different out here and we’d never adjust but to be honest, other than the lack of trees and grass things aren’t all that dissimilar to being at home in the south! Housing is so cheap out here so we found a great place and have adt security las vegas and the two car garage and all that stuff we’ve been wanting forever. I can’t imagine a way of life that doesn’t include time outdoors with my kids and this is actually a really great city for that. There’s lots of hiking and day trips and places to explore that aren’t far away and even my wife is loving her new job which is good enough for me. There’s nothing I would do for some good southern cooking though!

    Willy is cooking up some real time looking beyond the eye with some great Telescopes.  A good Telescope is something that Willy has always wanted since he was a small child.  Willy has now turned 60 and it is time for Willy to get his telescope.



    That is why Willy has started researching the world wide web for sites that have great telescopes for sale .
    That is when Willy has found that there are many types, quality, and kinds of instruments.  Now Willy has to really study to see which one and kind that he wants.   That is where skiesunlimited.net comes in to play.  This site has a lot of information and has the availability of great instruments that Willy can study and decide which one is right for Willy.

    So, if you are like Willy and you want that telescope that you should have had when you were a kid, then maybe you need to follow Willy's lead and get on the internet and find the one that you want.

    That is what is cooking up with Willy today.

    Willy likes watches.  Willy was given a watch for his 8th grade graduation and Willy remembers that gift like it was yesterday.  Well, now Willy  likes great new chronograph watches

    Do you like watches like Willy likes watches.  Wow! That sounds like the line to a song.

    Willy wonders why Willy likes watches so much?  What is it that fascinates Willy.  Watches seem to loosing out to cell phones for time keeping across the younger demographics.  Willy thinks that is crazy because Willy knows what it takes to make a watch special?  To Willy it is the tech inside of that great watch? Yes, it is the mechanism along with the fact that many times some great person  gave that watch to Willy?  Those are the things that make a watch special to Willy.

    So, if you like watches like Willy likes watches, then you need to get over to bluedial.com.  There is where Willy and you can find a great watch at a great price.  You can then keep the watch give the watch or just sit around being proud of the great watch.  What do you think?

    What is cooking for the Hogs this week.  Alabama is tough and we looked like a bunch of pussy's against Troy.  If the Razorbacks play like that against Alabama it will be a hog slaughter.  You can hear them circling the drain now.

    Arkansas should be better.  Before the season started fans felt like we would be great against Alabama.  Now people like Tommy Smith, David Bazzel, Roger Scott  and R.J. Hawk are making bets where they will shave their head depending on who wins, Arkansas or Alabama.

    Willy believes that Arkansas will get beat big time even though Willy likes the Hogs.

    Rnovating your home


    Guest written by our friend Mason Abbott

    For all of you out there who are considering redoing your home, great! I think it’s an awesome idea and I’ve been remaking houses for years but I’ve got a few suggestions that I’ve learned along the way that I’m going to share in hopes of making your whole process easier. First of all, you’ve got to find a contractor you trust and stick with them. Use your www.satellitestarinternet.com internet to look up recommended ones in your area or ask friends, but don’t skip this step. After that, you’ve got to set a really realistic budget. I see people go into a house that needs 50k worth of work and say they can do it for 20…you can’t! Things are going to be more expensive than you think so set a budget then double it. Lastly you’ve got to be on the job as much as possible. Even if you trust your contractor you can’t be at work 12 hours a day and expect everything to get done on time. Monitor, monitor, monitor, that’s what I always say!

    STRAIGHT TALK - AUGUST

    This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

    • I love the idea that I feel richer with Straight Talk because I cut my cell phone bill in half. You have to be crazy to be on a contract these days when you can get everything you need without one.  So call a friend or maybe mom knows best because of the fact that Straight Talk has such good plans and money saving ideas that there should be money left over at the end of the month to cook up some great electronics deals.

    So, they are cooking up the idea that there are no contracts, no surprise bills and no credit checks. All of that with the idea that htere is great nationwide coverage they say that the reception is excellent.  Last but not least is the fact that  Straight Talk only uses trusted phone manufacturers like LG, Motorola, Kyocera, Nokia and Samsung.

    Ok!  You add all of that with the fact that they have various great plans, 411 calls which are included at no extra charge, and all of this is free from activation, reactivation, or termination fees and you have a great deal.  Oh yes, Straight Talk has an  International Long Distance Service that is a flexible prepaid calling service that enables you to make international calls from your home, cell or office phone at low rates.

    How can you beat all of that?  Watch this video and you will get a great feel for this service.

    Meanwhile, make the sauce: Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat, then add the onions and cook until translucent, about 4 minutes. Stir in the vinegar and brown sugar until dissolved. Add the ketchup, apple juice, syrup, bourbon, prunes, Worcestershire sauce, cayenne, 1 tablespoon salt and 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until thickened, about 30 minutes. Puree with an immersion blender or in a regular blender.
    Preheat a grill to medium. Brush the grates with vegetable oil, then place the chops directly over the flame and grill until marked and cooked halfway through, about 15 minutes. Turn the chops and place on a cooler area of the grill (such as the edges); cover and cook until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 140 degrees F to 145 degrees F, 15 to 20 minutes. Uncover and brush the chops on all sides with the prepared sauce, then cover and cook until glazed, about 5 more minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and brush with more sauce. Tent with foil and let rest 10 minutes. Serve with more sauce.

    Humble Pie is Cooking in America

    Willy is under the impression that humble pie needs to be cooking in Washington in the very near future.  The politicians and the President all feel like they have a point to prove when it is no one but the American people who will suffer.

    The government has been running a scheme for ever and it is now time to pay the piper.  What does that mean to me.  It may mean beans and cornbread.  However, Willy knows how to cook that.

    What does it really mean for the government to default on its debt.  It could mean that they should not have gotten there in the first place.

    They arrest Willy when he does not pay his debt or he steals like the government has stolen from the American People.

    Taco Kit

    Willy's wife has been ill and Willy is relegated to doing most of the cooking at home.  So guess what Willy might cook?

    Tonight, Willy made the great Taco Supper.  Yes, it was great because it was easy, quick, and partial take out.  The Tacos consisted of a Taco Kit from the Market.  Willy cooked ground meat with a sauce from the kit.  Willy then heated up taco shells in the oven.  Willy then had cheese dip and chips that were from Faby's close by. 

    Willy finished it up and declared - it is done.  Willy's wife ate the tacos along with chips and dips.

    Good food and easy.

    American Experience" Best Documentary Series

    Thanks to Wm Rowe

    History has always been a favorite subject of mine, especially American history so it's an easy call for my favorite series. It has to be “American Experience.” It always manages to relate the past with the present, like airing a special on Martin Luther King, Jr. around his holiday. The series covers all aspects of American life, political, social and cultural. It is separate from the series “American Masters” but sometimes features artists and their work. Mostly, however, the material tries to focus on subjects that cut a wide swath through the national identity. It takes on wars and depressions and presidential campaigns, putting them center stage again for a little analysis. I have HD on my satellite TV with channels that www.directstartv.com and it makes old footage look vibrant. I also have surround sound and the audio production is exceptional. When they do a war-related program it puts you in the cockpit.

    The “American Experience” always has the iconic pictures of history mixed with some that are new to the public. It is a plus that the shows are presented without commercials, especially the 90-minute or 2-hour specials. This really gives the feel of a movie documentary. When you think of PBS you think educational and I'm certain the “American Experience” could be used in the classroom as a teaching tool. It is that good.

    Home Security Hollyridge!

     Willy is cooking up some home security today.  Willy is more specifically looking at home security hollyridge.  Where is this you ask.  Well it it is in Hollyridge SC.  This all has to do with Advanced Direct Security which is an ADT authorized company.  

    The next statement would be that all of this has something to do with www.localtv-satellite.com
    What does it have to do with satellite TV is still a little bit of a mystery to this intelligent hillbilly writer.  The website does not say anything that Willy can see.  However, Willy deduces that the monitoring is entering the building by satellite.  What do you think?

    Well, if you live in that area and you want a security system, it appears that this might be a good one.  This is my thoughts for this.

    Diets

    Willy is getting too fat and Willy is trying to diet to lose weight.  The diet includes protein and some type of potatoes or rice in the morning.   Snacks in morning and afternoon of protein and fruit and then evening meal of protein, vegetables and rice or potatoes.

    What Willy believes makes this diet work is that Willy only gets very small portions each time.  The combinations of foods is supposed to be the secret, but Willy knows when you don't stick much in your mouth, you might lose weight. 

    By the way - has anybody got some ice cream?

    Atomic Buffalo Turds (ABTs)



    Here is another post I've been meaning to get up for a couple weeks.

    I posted about atomic buffalo turds one other time, but I didn't really give them their due. We had a pot-luck party a couple weeks ago and I offered to make the appetizer. ABTs were the obvious choice.Start out by cutting the stem off and halving the peppers. Then I like to use a grapefruit spoon to scoop out the membranes and seeds. Just use the teeth of the spoon to cut through the pulp up near the stem. Then simply rake it down the length of the pepper to scoop everything out. If you want them to be hotter, take out the white pulp and seeds, but leave the thin membrane on the inside wall of the pepper. Give em a good rinse now to get extra seeds, pulp, etc. off of them.

    Sunday CLOTHES

    A little boy was walking down a dirt road after church one clip_image001Sunday afternoon when he came to a crossroads where he met a little girl coming from the other direction.

    'Hello,' said the little boy

    clip_image002

    'Hi,' replied the little girl.
    'Where are you going?' asked the little boy.
    'I've been to church this morning and I'm on my way home,' answered the little girl.
    'I'm also on my way home from church. Which church do you go to?' asked the little boy.

    'I go to the Baptist church back down the road,' replied the little girl. 'What about you? '

    clip_image003

    'I go to the Methodist church back at the top of the hill,' replied the little boy.


    They discover that they are both going the same way so they decided that they'd walk together.


    They came to a low spot in the road where spring rains had partially flooded the road, so there was no way that they could get across to the other side without getting wet.


    'If I get my new Sunday dress wet, my Mom's going to skin me alive,' said the little girl.


    'My Mom'll tan my hide, too, if I get my new Sunday suit wet,' replied the little boy.


    'I'll tell you what I think I'll do,' said the little girl. 'I'm gonna pull off all my clothes and hold them over my head and wade acrossclip_image004.'


    'That's a good idea,' replied the little boy. 'I'm going to do the same thing with my suit.'

    So they both undressed and waded across to the other side without getting their clothes wet. They were standing there in the sun waiting to drip dry before putting their clothes back on, when the little boy finally remarked:


    clip_image005'You know, I never realized before just how much difference there really is between a

    Baptist and a Methodist!!!'

    Check out SMC

    Willy thinks he might like to cook up a deal with smc corp which is a specialty merchandise corporation
    Willy has written a smc review previously and Willy believes this is a company that Willy could really deal with.  The company provides merchandise that a person can sell at a profit and really make some good money.  The company has a great variety of products that can be appealing to almost anyone.

    Willy has thought about doing this several times and Willy might be close to getting there because it just looks more appealing every day.  What can be wrong with making money by selling great novelty products that have a mass appeal to the audiences that Willy frequents. 



    The next thing that Willy would have to ask all of his redneck great readers on this wonderful blog is, what about you?  Would SMC be something that each of you would be proud to be linked up with?  Is this a company that is reliable and dependable for each of you.  Willy says it is for him and he believes it would be for others.  Take a look and lets find out.


    That is what Willy has to say except for 10-4.

    Cooking at the Hospital

    Willy's wife just recently spent another 13 days in the hospital.  Willy's wife has had great opportunities to eat hospital food.  They were ok at first but as days went on the food all smelled the same and tasted the same. 

    Almost every meal had mashed potatoes and gravy.  Three times she had chicken and dressing or turkey and dressing.   It came to the point that when they brought the tray in Mrs Willy would ask them to read the sheet and in most cases she simply said take it away and asked Willy to go fetch something somewhere else.

    Willy needs to cook at the hospital.  Willy would have great food.   Everyone would love it for a few days.

    Cooking Up a Transport!

    Willy is cooking up an idea that he needs to expound on that might be a little crazy but it might be a great idea.  What is this idea that Willy is cooking up?  Well the idea has to do with buying and selling automobiles all over the United States.

    Will Watches Ebay and other sites to see if there are bargains on vehicles.  Willy thinks that he can buy in one place and sell in another place in the U.S. and make money.  The biggest problem is that Willy needs to have a way to use Auto Transport companies to get the cars from where they are bought to the place that Willy wants to sell them.  Willy has not had any experience with Car Shipping and needs to check out the internet to see what is available in this area.

    So if Willy can get the logistics of ways to use a Car Transport company in a way that would make the job of moving the vehicles that Willy buys easy and simple then it will make this idea of buying and selling vehicles a good one. 

    What do Willy’s readers think about this.  Do any of you have ideas of things that are positive or negative about this idea?

    This is Willy’s thoughts for now.

    Willy is Cooking up a Republican Truck

    Willy stopped by the Chevrolet Dealership yesterday, for a look at the new Silverado 1500 pickup. Just for fun, I took it out for a test drive. I wanted to sense that new "feel" before they become extinct.

    The salesman (a black man wearing an Obama "change" lapel pin) sat in the passenger seat describing the truck and all its "wonderful" options. The seats were of particular interest. He explained that the seats directed warm air to your butt in the winter and directed cool air to your butt in the summer heat.


    Feeling like messing with him, Willy mentioned that this must be a Republican truck.

    Looking a bit angry, he asked why Willy thought it was a Republican truck. Willy explained that if it were an Obama truck, the seats would blow smoke up your ass year-round.

      Willy had to walk back to the dealership...damn guy had no sense of humor.

    Weak and cooking

    The title to this blog was supposed to be the week end cooking.  However with voice activation.  It came out like it did.  So therefore we are going to work with it like it comes out through voice activation.

    4 the weekend we are going to have mothers day hey home.  It will be hard to eat home I would rather eat hey home.  It really sounds like hillbilly willie is talking when he keeps saying home instead of halo mn.  Can anybody guess what type of meat we are having.  Voice activation keep saying home when willie is trying to say hey home.  This voice activation has a lot to learn.  Willie is going to say it 3 *

    Caribbean Baby Back Ribs with Guava Glaze

    Willy loves ribs just about anyway you make them.  However, willy thought Guava was something from a bat.  What do you think.   10-4 Willy

    Caribbean Baby Back Ribs with Guava Glaze

    Ingredients

    Rub

    1tablespoon kosher salt

    2teaspoons dried oregano

    1/2teaspoon garlic powder

    1/2teaspoon onion powder

    1/2teaspoon ground black pepper

    2racks baby back ribs, each 2 to 2-1/2 pounds

    Glaze

    1cup guava jelly or apricot preserves

    1/2cup plus 1 tablespoon ketchup

    3tablespoons unsalted butter

    3scallions (white and light green parts only), minced

    1tablespoon peeled, grated fresh ginger

    1-1/2teaspoons seeded and minced habanero chile pepper or 2 teaspoons minced jalapeƱo chile pepper

    1large garlic clove, grated

    Instructions
    1. Prepare the grill for indirect cooking over low heat (250° to 300°F).

    2. In a small bowl mix the rub ingredients.

    3. Remove the membrane from the back of each rack of ribs. Season the ribs all over with the rub, putting more of it on the meaty sides than the bone sides. Arrange the ribs in a rib rack, all facing the same direction. Allow the ribs to stand at room temperature for about 30 minutes before grilling. Meanwhile, make the glaze.

    4. In a small saucepan over medium heat, mix the glaze ingredients.

    5. Brush the cooking grates clean. Place the ribs over indirect low heat, as far from the heat as possible, with the bone sides facing toward the heat. Close the lid. After 3 hours, check to see if any rack is ready to come off the grill. They are done when the meat has shrunk back from most of the bones by 1/2 inch or more. When you lift a rack by picking up one end with tongs, the rack should bend in the middle and the meat should tear easily. If the meat does not tear easily, continue cooking for up to 4 hours.

    6. Remove the ribs from the rib rack and transfer to a sheet pan. Lightly brush the ribs on both sides with the glaze. Lay the ribs flat on the cooking grate, with one rack at a time over direct heat. Grill them, with the lid closed as much as possible, until the ribs are a little crispy on the surface, 10 to 15 minutes, brushing them, turning them, and swapping their positions occasionally. Return the ribs to the sheet pan, give them one last coating of glaze, and cover with foil to keep warm for as long as 15 minutes. Cut the racks between the bones and serve right away.

    Cooking up some Easter Eggs.

    Willy misses the days when the daughter, now 28, would spend days before Easter coloring eggs. 

    Maybe Willy needs a grand kid to do this with now. 

    Willy would cook  the eggs or Mrs Willy would and we would color and paint and play and just enjoy.

    This Easter the Wife is recovering from a serious illness, the daughter was over for a few hours on Friday, we did not  get to go to Church.

    Dear Lord send it back and return that joy to Willy's wife and Willy.

    Gold IRA?

    Willy believes it is time to go on a gold standard.  With this Willy believes that everyone should invest in and have a gold IRA.  If you have the money to buy gold, there is every chance in the world that the price is going to increase.  That would make IRA gold,

    Is there any question what Willy is cooking up here?  In case you cannot understand what Willy is saying, let Willy say it loud and clear.  Willy is saying to get you a gold 401k account and see if you can make yourself rich in retirement.  Yes, it is true.  401k gold is the thing to have in your portfolio and it is something that will certainly increase in value and possibly make you very comfortable. 

    So, if you have not thought about it up to this time, then it is time to think about having a gold IRA transfer to get that gold that you now have over into your retirement account.  This can move the value from one account over to your IRA account.  Sounds great doesn’t it.

    Willy says you should try to take it out and see what it makes you in a  short time.

    SMC UPDATE

    SMC is almost a house hold word.  Isn’t that the one that Tom Bosley used to advertise for.  Willy believes that Mr. B from Happy Days would not lie and therefore these things that are said about a specialty merchandise corporation scam has got to be a crock of bull.  Willy used to listen to their commercials and think that this would be a great business for Willy to take in his spare time. 

    So, Willy is writing this specialty merchandise corporation review  letting the world know that Willy thinks that this is a good company and one that many people have made good money exercising their plan for making money.  Yes this is a good plan and a good company.

    All of that is said to emphasize that the specialty merchandise corporation scam is ridiculous.  Yes, who would know that this is something that is being said that is totally false.  Well, Willy is one that would know and Willy would like to tell everyone else.  So what do you think?  Is this a scam or is it real>

    Cooking up a Truck at Park Auto Mall

    Willy does not live in Tampa but if he did because Tampa used cars are something that Willy might really be looking into.  Why would Willy be looking into that?  Well, because Willy could easily  be looking for used trucks or used cars or possibly Willy is just looking for a place where he can get credit to buy a good Ford F150 in Tampa Florida.  

    Yes, as you can tell Willy is a nut for good used cars.  That is why it is important to check out these used cars in Tampa and a reason to look at Park Auto Mall.  Great cars and trucks with great prices and great credit terms seems to be something that is important to this group.

    So, if you are in the Tampa area and you need a good used car it is the belief of this redneck that you should check this place out.  You may smile as you drive away being glad that you stopped by.

    Those are my thought for now.   10-4Willy

    Queer Eye for the Straight Girl


    Willy is cooking up some television today with a guest host.  Enjoy --- 10-4 Willy
    ---------------------

    The article written by Geraldo Russo

    I love watching the show, "Queer Eye for the Straight Girl," on my DISH.TV. This funny show is a spin-off of the show, "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy." The show features five gay men who seek to help the less fortunate in the area of style. These five gay men help teach other people how to achieve a great personal style.

    People literally go under a fashion makeover when they appear on this show. They truly undergo a major transformation in the way they look on this show, after the five hosts have worked with them. I always enjoy seeing how people change on this show. It is so much fun to see a person go from having horrible style, to achie! ving a truly amazing sort of style on this show. It is a phenomenal sort of transformation that always takes place.

    Overall, I recommend this show to any woman that wants to achieve a sort of better style. It is likely that one can learn from the fashion mistakes of the contestants on this show. One will truly learn how to get better style by listening to the recommendations made by the five hosts of this show. After watching this show, one will truly love the five hosts on this show. They are so nice, as well as funny and quite charming.
