Everyone Has A Lemon Story

Friday, January 15th, 2016

Hi Friends,

Like most everyone else in America I think I make the best chili. My recipe has two secret ingredients. The first secret is “Wick Fowler’s 2 Alarm Chili.”

When I lived in Kentucky, Wick Fowler’s sister lived in our neighborhood. There was a fancy horse farm across the highway from where we lived. The Queen of England bought horses from that farm. John Y Brown was governor of Kentucky then and he would loan his helicopter to the Queen when she visited. Wick Fowler’s sister used to delight in telling her friends that the Queen came by today when ever the Governor’s helicopter flew over.

In 1967, in the town of Terlingua, Texas, the first world chili cook off was held. It was here that Wick Fowler won and established the standard for world class, authentic Texas-style chili.

Wick Fowler’s 2 Alarm Chili is available at most grocery stores and contains 7 individual packets of spices. These spices plus fresh ground beef, chopped onions and canned tomatoes produce a powerful mixture. It is powerful but not complete until I add the 2nd secret ingredient: a can of premium beer. I like Yuengling Light so I dump most of a can of it into the mix. I usually save one swallow. Whether it is 8 AM or 5 PM I save that swallow for just a taste. That taste of beer (that I refer to as Chili Beer) is the best beer I have ever tasted. It is good to recognize and savor the things that make you happy.

I have a Fresh Market within walking distance from home. Fresh Market is an upscale fresh meat and produce market. A lot of the fruits and vegetables are organic and the beef is grass fed only. I suspect the eggs come from individually housed and union organized chickens.

I was at the check out counter yesterday. Among my other items were 6 lemons. The cashier examined each of the lemons and told me, “I use to buy my lemons at Walmart or wherever. I bought some lemons here the other day and I can’t believe the difference. You’d think all lemons are about the same. The lemons from here are juicier, more flavorful and have less seeds. And the difference in price is really small.”

It is good to recognize and savor the things that make you happy. Everyone has a lemon story.

Stun Gun

Monday, January 4th, 2016

Hi Friends,

I have never owned a gun. I never had much interest in guns. I am not a hunter and I never wanted the responsibility of gun ownership. When I was in the Air Force there was some minimal training in the use of firearms but during my 4 years of military service my job did not require me to carry a weapon.

Everyone is not suited to gun ownership. The civic responsibility  of gun ownership includes licensing, maintaining a level of proficiency and a commitment to safe use and storage.

If the purpose of gun ownership is self defense you have to also be willing to accept the consequences of using a lethal weapon.

None of this is to say I am against gun ownership. I am fully in favor of gun ownership. I believe in our Second Amendment Rights. I believe our country would be a safer place if every sane adult carried a weapon. However gun ownership is not for me.

Today in the USA someone is physically attacked or robbed every 6 seconds. Personal protection is becoming a necessity of life.

My son Jay has three beautiful and talented daughters. These girls are still in school but they have active lives and after school jobs. It is not unusual for them to be out at night and alone. Jay bought and trained his daughters in the use of stun guns.

Do you know about stun guns?

Stun guns work on the principle of high voltage and low amperage. This means that a stun gun will temporarily disable an attacker but does not produced lasting damage. The recovery from a stun gun shock is usually 30 seconds to a few minutes (long enough to call for help or to flee). Usually after being shocked an attacker immediately loses any enthusiasm he previously had for staging attacks or robberies.

If you think a stun gun is right for you and your family or if you just want more information give us a call. We sell a compact, easy to use and affordable stun gun. Our rechargeable stun guns sell for $40 each including UPS shipping. Our stun gun looks like and operates like a high quality flashlight but has the additional feature of 1 million volts of stopping power. When the stun gun is activated it makes a very loud crackling sound that in itself dissuades would be assailants.

Call us today and we can help you determine if a stun gun is right for you.

Best Wishes,
