OK, Friends..... I had an accident, and laid down my Electra Glide, and was in a coma for a few weeks....... I am back to work now, healthy and alive! I will ask everyone reading to please pay attention to everyone in front of you....every day.....apparently, the waste of human existence that was in front of my Harley completely disregarded me...and cut me off, which caused me to lock up the brakes on my bike and lay it down. (Hell, even with me bleeding and out cold on the…Continue

Thoughts from yer ol’ Buddy Scotty… ( A.K.A. The Rev. Dr. S.A. Schnarr )
Today’s lesson: Passion
There is one predominant reason I see a lot of couples get together, and a lot of couples split up. At it’s simplest, I would say that reason is passion. Yep, you read right. People split up because of passion. Think about it, passion is a two-edged sword, isn’t it? People love with passion. They have, let’s say, intimate marital (or extra-marital) relations…Continue

Here’s food for thought…..
A friend recently mentioned that the people, (more specifically the taxpayer), of today needs to step up and fight taxes they think are unfair, and support those that will help “the next guy”, or future generations, I.E. : Infrastructure, better roads, bridges, utilities, parks, schools….
That all sounds well and good, on the surface, doesn’t it? Sure it does. Till you figure out what they are REALLY looking for…. And it…Continue

Before you say it...yes, it's true and legal... Time for a sermon from the Right Reverend Dr. S.A.Schnarr.....
Trayvon Martin's parents will need the emotional support and strength to make it through what must be a very traumatic feeling for them. We can all relate to the loss of a loved one, and the feeling that someone should be held accountable. ...someone should pay. What saddens me is that people see it all as black and white, both literally and…

Greetings Brothers and Sisters of the road.....
Recent tragedies in the news set me to thinking....and that's always a dangerous thing, innit?

Dig it...points to ponder from yer ol' buddy Scotty.....
So.... The tornado is on the way, coming right at you and a classroom full…Continue

Brothers and Sisters.... It's been a while for yer ol' buddy Scotty to post a blog..... here's one for ya to ponder....
I have seen several posts and news stories about bullies recently. Rather than repost all that stuff, I wanna tell you a real life "Bully" story.... Mine. Sometimes we all need a different perspective.
Bullying is one of the most difficult experiences of any kid's life. My experience, though, and my perspective, were, and still are,…

For those of you who don't regularly read the local newspaper (The Lafayette Journal and Courier), a fella who has a regular column there, as well as a couple of blogs, Mike VanOuse, wrote an article that caused a bit of a stir the other day...... He was saying if anyone in the theater in Aurora Colorado would have been armed besides the idiot assailant, much of the carnage could have been avoided. People came out of the woodwork to bash him personally and professionally because he DARED to…Continue

Yer Ol' Buddy Scotty's rant for the day....
Don't any of you remember Junior High School literature? Geez, we were taught these lessons as kids.....
To paraphrase the lesson: We all want to believe, and as such we assign undue credit to that person, or entity, in which we "believe". A lot of you exhibit this behavior with regard to your Political favorites, or maybe your Religious icon (Obama, Romney, God, Buhdda, the great Spirit, what…

I guess I'm a Libertarian.....
Think about it....whether you claim to be a Democrat or a Republican, I bet your chosen party stands firmly for, and firmly against, some things that are important to you. I know neither one speaks for me. Not even close. I know a lot of people like me, too.
- I am for Gun rights, and believe that the Constitution guarantees my right to own and carry a gun, if I want. Republicans agree, Dems don't.
- I am for Abortion rights. I believe that…Continue

My friend Jodi posted a comment on Facebook recently, and it got me to thinkin', and when I get thinkin' I gotta share.....
Remember 2008 election day? Black Panthers allegedly carrying billy clubs at the polls, intimidating white voters, reportedly saying such things as "you are about to be ruled by a Black man, Cracker"? Got a lot of coverage at the time, and they got arrested, and rightly so. Then Obama got elected, and we forgot all about the story. Did you know that the charges…Continue

I‘ve been thinking a lot recently about our nature. Human nature. Is it human nature to back a winner? If it is, how about hitting someone when they’re down? Sorta the same isn’t it? Think about it like this….
Why are there all of a sudden so many Colts fans when they are winning? Seems like everybody I know was all of a sudden a Colts fan a couple years back, when we saw no indication whatsoever that most of these folks were interested in the slightest while the Colts were…Continue

Ever had to live on a budget? In one way or another, we all have, right?
The concept is simple, isn't it? Figure out what you need to spend, and where you want to spend it, then figure out how much money you can round up toward that total. If the amount of money you can round up is less than what you wanted (or needed) to spend, you have a budget.
Pretty simple, right? Next, you probably will prioritize your spending. Pay the high priority…Continue

We all have favorite holiday stories for pretty much every holiday, don't we? Here is my favorite Easter story.....
My grandkids think I am older than dirt. Even though they are sure I was alive at the time of the resurrection, I wasn't. I do not personally recall the resurrection. Limiting my favorite Easter to one which I actually witnessed leaves us with more than 40 Easters though. Still a lot.
Like many American kids, my Brother and I looked…

My Mom is a pretty wise woman. She taught little brother Craig and I lots of things, but 3 stand out in my memory today.
Don’t “dawdle” is one of my favorites. This childhood lesson was meant to impart upon little brother Craig and I the concept of not wasting time when we had a task to do. If you know what your task is, and what direction you need to go, get moving in that direction. Don’t waste a bunch of time trying to figure out how to get out of doing…

I love a good conspiracy theory....don''t we all?
I got to thinking recently about the stereotypical question "If you could have dinner with anyone, alive or dead, who would you choose".....And I thought of a twist on it, because I couldn't choose.
Forget the "boo hoo" stuff, I ain't asking for one more dinner with a dear departed relative, although that would be great. I'd want to solve some of the mysteries of all time.

I have been told that I have a “hot temper”. You don’t hear that term used a lot these days, what with all the so-called “experts” out there that have a pidgeon-hole definition for everything, but it is pretty accurate for me.
When I was a kid, my temper could cause the occasional “issue” for me. All the other kids, as I saw it, were out to get me. They wouldn’t let the fat kid with the thick glasses (little Scotty) play. When I was allowed to play in a neighborhood…Continue

I suppose most people have some sort of "short list" for things they always wanted to do. Some folks look forward to realistic goals and eventually get there. Some folks dream of things that will never happen for them. When someone asks me what I would like to do in my life, I remember an old music video by Twisted Sister, (I can't help myself, it's burned into my brain).
At the beginning of the video, a school teacher screams at a student: "All right, 'Mister…Continue

Chronologically I am barely into middle age, but it seems I have the ears of an old man. I have too many years under my belt of loud rock-n-roll, too many years working in loud factories. Still, I can hear the loud hip hop thumpa thumpa rattling my windows as the people drive down the road. I can even hear it over the loud pipes on my Harley when we pull up at a stop light. It has gotta be more damaging to them than my favorites were to me, after all, it is twice as…Continue

We all make assumptions about others don't we?
Some of us try to deny it, others embrace it, but we all do it. We can't help it.
Usually the assumption is about someone who is perceived to be somehow significantly different than you...different race, different religion, different body type, different hobby, different hair color even. Who hasn't heard a blonde joke, or a Polish joke? We all know neither the blonde or the polish are less…Continue

Springtime, a time of rejuvenation..time to reflect for a lot of folks, on the best parts, and worst parts of the year. Time to start all over if we need to. I was asked the age-old question "what was the best part of the last year" by our local newspaper Editor recently, and I responded with something like this.....
Tough year at yer ol’ buddy Scotty’s house. There was a lot of bad news to be sure, but the BEST news? That is a tough one. Can’t celebrate death.…
