WSB 750 News Weather and Farm Report


The Noon News and Farm Report

Today we are on news overload. At least that is how it seems to me. This past election about did me in. I got so sick of the various channels and experts telling us why this would happen and that would not happen and this person could not win and the other person would win, ad nauseam. I wonder if an actual scientific review was done how many incorrect statements and just plain lies were told by the media this year.

I never thought the winner would win. The entire news system was against him as well as the biggest political machine in the history of the world, I suppose. But, win he did and now the news people are walking around in a daze. They were tweeted into non relevance and have not yet fully recognized it. They say that the new president has a total following of 40,000,000 on the various social medias.

“And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”

Don’t Say It Unless You Mean IT. A Cow In Greene County

“Don’t Say It Unless You mean It”
A Lesson from Greene County

A number of years ago, Richard, Bob, Dave, and I were running around buying and selling some antiques. We found ourselves in New York, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania after driving all night in our old Sears delivery truck that we had literally acquired from the Dixie Truck Salvage yard and headed out in it on a Friday afternoon. Sometimes we went in Bob’s pickup.

Mostly this was some cut glass but also Tiffany Lamp Shades and furniture items. Once, we bought a whole warehouse full of stuff in Wilkes Barre, PA. You talk about chairs, well, we had chairs!

We found this company that produced reproduction Tiffany Lamp Shades and we bought a truck load. We had some auctions and went to a lot of flea markets. We had reproduction Glass fruit jars and , we had ‘em by the truck load, too!

Aw Shucks! Or, Something Like That!

Aw Shuck1

Aw, Shucks

(And other great expressions)

Growing up in the South, I learned a number of Southern Colloquialisms. I feel sure that if I had lived in Minnesota or New York, I would have possibly heard the same ones or some very similar. Words, phrases and expressions that were, and are, used to express the point we are trying to make in no uncertain terms but which are never fully explained. The “meaning” of the words has more to do with the manner and tone in which they are expressed and the circumstances under which they are used.

Buzzards & A Well Don’t Mix

Buzzards

( Unintended Consequences )

Sometimes, things do not work out the way we planned. Or, more correctly, we do stuff without having any plan at all. And, certainly, with no thought as to the possible outcome or consequences. Stuff just happens, they say.
