Whenever I go to Chick-fil-a, I order Buffalo sauce and ranch with my chicken sandwich. Then I pour the Buffalo sauce on the chicken and dip it in the ranch. It turns into a very enjoyable Buffalo chicken sandwich.

I don't know if you saw it or not, but there is a video of him playing Amazing Grace at his mom's funeral floating around on the internet. Incredible to watch. I highly recommend it.

If you haven't already, you need to check out SamJam bluegrass festival in the week leading up to Labor Day, located in Piketon. Sammy is my dude.

I don't understand how so many people I encounter on a daily basis have no idea who Jason Isbell or Tyler Childers are. Isbell is the soundtrack to my life man.

You should've crop dusted. I had a great time yesterday at Meijer crop dusting the Sunday afternoon grocery shoppers. An older lady was particularly offended and gave her poor husband an accusatory dirty look.

Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit are releasing an album this year and I cannot wait to hear it. He said he feels like it's their best record to date.

John Moreland is releasing an album this year and I cannot wait to hear it.

In my lifetime - It would have to be the falling of the Berlin Wall

Since 1900 - April 14, 1935 in Oklahoma to witness the worst dust storm that the dust bowl produced. It was known as Black Sunday.

Since 1000 AD - Sailing with Bartholomew Roberts aboard the Royal Fortune on a day in late October 1770, pyrating. 

Anytime in history - April 19, 1775 Lexington & Concord, Massachusetts witnessing those gigantic balled minutemen having their fill of the British.

Twain's Life on the Mississippi is a great read. Great call.

Comment 23 Jan 2020

In the state I live in, when local high schools would consolidate, they would usually build a new high school at a central location. The old high school buildings often continued housing the grade schools in the local towns. In the 80s-90s, another consolidated elementary school was usually built, and the old school buildings were sold or torn down.

I saw some people beating a tractor tire with sledge hammers when I drove past a gym once. I don't have either of those things, so I beat a bicycle tire with an old table leg. Pretty much the same thing. 

I'd suggest a mat of some kind. There's a lot you can do on a mat by just using your body. Much better than laying on the garage floor.

Du Quoin is where I saw the monster truck Big Foot when they came to the fair grounds. One of my earliest memories. Du Quoin has (at least they used to have) a really good high school football program. I'm also pretty sure that's where we would go for Dairy Queen???  

Comment 14 Jan 2020

I think if I was a player at Penn State, the last name I would jokingly toss around is Jerry Sandusky. Dude's a real life monster, and I would not want to be associated with his time in the program. There's a special place in hell for people who hurt children.

The Jergens Ol Fashioned Handy Bowl

Comment 13 Jan 2020

Your point is correct, but around me, there's not a lot of folks that are going to be building and fixing robots. When their low level retail or manufacturing jobs disappear, there's not another option. Well, I guess cooking meth, but not everyone wants to take that risk. 

Comment 13 Jan 2020

Great point. Roughly 5 million manufacturing jobs have been lost in this country since 2000. I saw an estimate of another 1.5 million gone by 2030.

Comment 13 Jan 2020

Yes, the lower paying jobs are eliminated first. Some employees can be reskilled to fit new jobs created by automation, but I would think that those employees aren't as common. The good news, as you point out, is that workers who are skilled to fit the new roles are going to make more money as those lower level jobs disappear.
