So about 5 or 6 years ago Hildie and I tried to do do a straight forward “How-To” show. It was called Metal Church. Networks didn’t get it. They did focus groups and they claimed they didn’t understand why people would want to make a gas tank. So it was turned down.

This year we tried again with different concept American Craftsman. So far there are no takers. Networks think that viewers like you don’t want to see educational stuff. They think you are not interested in seeing Master Craftsmen like Jerry Fisk & Louis Fry doing what they do.

I think Different. I refuse to buckle and do fake, staged TV. I started this whole “Reality” TV craze in 1999, and a lot of people were not ready for it. Most of the management at Discovery Network was pissed and hated it. Motorcycle Mania’s and Monster Garage’s success speaks for itself.

Now its time cut a New groove and go back to inspiring and teaching people again.

Here is the first full episode of American Craftsman, I make a JJFU Damascus Cisco 1911.

If you like it and want to see it on Discovery Channel email here and let them know ——> viewer_relations@discovery.com

I hate that I don’t know my neighbors. I know one lady 2 doors down is dealing some sort of drugs and is one of the PTA leaders and has at least 6 different men taking up residence at her home at any given time.

There’s a new guy that moved in across the street, and he has at least 1, possibly up to 4 kids. I think he works construction.

A lady 3 doors down just put in a new swimming pool, and blasts classic rock way into the evening hours. I have no idea what she does. I just pass her house on the way to the mailbox.

My other across the street neighbors just had a baby, or 3 months ago or somehing. She gestated for 3/4 of a year, and I had no clue. I never see her. The husband came out of the house one day holding a baby, and I asked him whose baby it was. He said it was his. She parks in the garage, so she gets in and leaves, then gets home and pulls the door down.

I have 3 neighbors that border my block wall, and I haven’t a clue as to what their names are or if they have kids or anything.

I need to learn to neighbor better. I have to not be scared to meet new people, and I have to go take them some cookies or something. I’ve lived here for 4 years, and I know nothing. I don’t need to make 10 new best friends, but I should at least know who lives here, except the tweekers. They can stay far over there.

How do I continue to get porn blogs following me? Do I just ooze sexuality on my blog? Do others think that my lack of sexuality on my blog is a coverup for being a completely sexual freak? Because its not. I’m just baffled. I’m just a lame mom, medical assistant, and in a habitual relationship with my guy for almost 16 years. I don’t hide, I’m honest, and I love people, almost to a fault. I’m a simple woman, I have simple values, I treat others how I want to be treated. Simple.

To the new followers, hi!! Can you tell me something about yourself? Do you want to know something about me? My ask is always open, and I think anon is on, too.

Its the first “open-window” night here in the desert, for me at least. I’m so excited, even for his one night, for it to be a tolerable temperature.

I’ve got the most delicious smelling carnitas in the crock pot. Its been in since 6 last night, and it will be on for another 4-5 hours before we even eat for dinner.
In the meantime, I’m working. Not my favorite way to spend a Saturday, but money, y’all.
My kids don’t live here during the week(nothing bad, they just stay at their grandmas during the week for rides to school) but then they come home and talk all. Day. Long. I love that they want to talk to me and keep me in the loop, but when I just want some peace and quiet, they don’t understand.
Who wants to come over and make he Spanish rice and empanadas for dessert? Cuz I don’t wanna.

So…the sleepers gonna sleep sleep sleep sleep sleep and the dreamers gonna dream dream dream dream dream dream. And I’m just gonna lie here awake wake wake wake wake. I wish that I could sleep it off, sleep it off! Grr, damn Taylor swift

Is his well balanced? OK fine…I had a moment of weakness. And a diet soda always makes sense when everything else you’re eating is total crap.

Feeling pretty good about the legs today. Yes, it is an awkward bathroom picture at work.

12.1-13.4 miles per gallon is crap.
If I had better credit, I could afford a newer/used car payment, better insurance coverage and gas for said car for the cost of what I spend on gas per month and liability insurance now.
Crap I say!

540 lbs.
I feel manly.
New PR.

Responding to my post from last night.

@deck16 
Thank you for taking the time to reply to my post from last night. I guess it would be somewhat fair to call me a bigot, because I do not feel he coach should have been suspended for openly practicing religion, just as we do in classrooms by stating “One nation, under God” when we stand and recite the Pledge of Allegiance. There were always kids who chose to not recite, and that was their choice, not mine.

I am a parent to 3 children, ages 15, 12, and 5. I have raised them all to lead a Christian life because that is what I was raised as and have chosen. I send them to bible studies, church camps, and religious retreats for all different religions. As my daughters have gotten older, I have encouraged hem to seek out and experience other religions and allow them to decide what is best for them as they are growing. I have also encouraged my children and shown them that everyone believes in what they want to believe, and that they can practice as they please, and should be allowed to without fear of punishment or persecution.

Perhaps I am the minority by believing that everyone has free will and may choose what they want in life. They may choose yo practice or not practice, and I do not judge them for that. If you want to pray yo a mushroom, fine. I hope you find all the happiness in life that you seek from that mushroom. If you pray to Allah, then I hope you find all the happiness in life you seek from Allah. As a Christian, I find all the happiness I seek from God, my Father in Heaven, from Jesus, the Son of the Living God, and The Holy Spirit, my guide. The Triune God is my belief.

My children know that I am encouraging and open with them about others and their religions, just as I am about race, gender and sexual orientation. We are an open family, and love and embrace the broken, the weary, the happy, the sick, the nonbelievers, the believers. I do not shame people for what they are or are not, and I have instilled that on my children. My religion is not the only religion, and I am very aware that Christians make many mistakes. I have my own, but I’m not going to divulge that at this time. I am a sinner, as are you, and you, and you. I’m not going to say that God that I believe in is jut going to give me a free pass through the pearly gates simply because I have confessed my sins. It has to be earned. I also not going to say that its fine to sin because your sins will all be forgiven if you confess and profess your love of God. I don’t teach my children that. I also cannot teach them to live a sinless life. It’s just not going to happen. But what I can teach them is good values, right from wrong, and help them live a life full of love and understanding for others, that they may show others the way. And if others choose to come to them and want to know God and be close to God as my children are because of them, then I have done my job as a Christian parent.

There are those things that parents are always proud of, like scholastic awards, big promotion, singing solo at a concert. I’m proud of how awesome I did at dying my daughters hair. Its pretty freaking rad!!!

Watching the news tonight. Disgusted by a report about a high school football coach being suspended from coaching 2 games because he took a knee and led his team in a post-victory prayer. Parents commenting to the reporters that maybe this suspension “will give him time to think about and learn from his mistakes.” Mistake? How is expressing his gratitude to God a mistake? Those high school kids can decide if they want to pray along or not. They can step away and not partake. BUT for those kids who enjoy the prayer and participate, what are they learning by being shown that love of and expression of religion is frowned upon? So as they try to grow in their faith, these kids are going to be afraid to reach out to others for fear of punishment. I believe in God wholeheartedly, I love my God, I am a woman of Faith. I am raising my children to be children of God. But I will NEVER ever shame another or allow my children to be shamed for believing and showing their faithfulness. I’m so saddened by all these parents who are just as bad about trying to ban religion in their households instead of encouraging their children to investigate everything, to figure out what they love and believe.

Sorry if this offends anyone. NOT.
