Going too far…….

Look, I know they are rich and popular but this is branding gone too far. From kids underwear to tee shirts, from duct tape to flashlights, I’m sick of seeing these redneck douchbags faces on EVERYTHING! Wal-Mart is the biggest seller of this made in China crap, and yes 95% of all the products I found with their fecal logos on it was made in China and they claim to be all American….Yeah Right. SO a few days ago I was once again in a Wally World and found this. I’m not going to buy it to try it, I’d rather give away the money to a drug addict. The label does not even say the vineyard where it comes from, it just says made in California, I’m thinking the Boones Farm line of fine wines taste better, or maybe Mad Dog 20/20…..


Teatime Tuesday: A Bit of This and That..

Well 20 days till x-mas and I already have my presents to myself, I did a B&H christmas this year and treated myself to a kick butt point and shoot camera.. A Canon G12 and this puppy has all the bells and whistles and I’m really happy with it. I also got some cool accessories I needed like a new DSLR camera bag (Tamrac Velicity 10x), a Storm Jacket camera cover, and a Rogue honeycomb flash diffuser for the speedlight. Enough about my new toys and on to this weeks tea…Its an ice tea from Arizona Tea a nice Green Tea with Ginsing and Honey and it was very tasty and quenched the proverbial thirst. Granted I don’t usually drink Ice Tea but this was an experiment that worked out well, better than that Peace Tea..YEEECHHH!
I’m home for a few days for a short visit with the folks and getting ready to get wet today with a cold front moving towards Tennessee. Alas no snow with this one but hopefully I’ll get to see some soon (I know I’m crazy). Well I gotta run its time to catch up on Once upon a time, its a really fun new show..:-)

Teatime Tuesday

Grab your bellbottoms and a headband and put a flower in your hair, its time to ride the “PeaceTea” train. First off let me tell ya this is pure crap and I’m being nice. How can Wal-Mart sell this swill, I really can’t even describe the taste. I took one sip and out the window it went, even though it claims to only have 12 grams of sugar thats all you can taste. Why did I even bother with this tea? Well, the can looked interesting the peace symbol and peace sign looked promising and there were people on the can protesting, so maybe this was supposed to be tea that brings change? There is one person on the can in a wheelchair who is missing his legs, anyone know who this is??? I know and I bet he does not know his likeness is used on the can even though he was a prolific figure in the anti-war movement in the 60’s and 70’s.

Know who this is???

Sunday Stills: In the Dark

My favorite subject! The first 4 are new pics I took this week and the second 4 are some of my faves from the archives..:-)

Houston Texas

Indianapolis Indiana

This was at an offramp in Louisiana in the fog.

And this was my first attempt at spotlighting a pic in total darkness of bald river falls, my spotlight ran out of power 30 seconds into the shot and it was not powerfull to reach the falls.
