I saw this photo online, and wanted to share it. I do not know where it originated from, but it is from Operation Desert Storm. This is one bad ass photo!
Now that was an AWESOME flyover at the Phoenix Racetrack!!!
Now, let’s get racing boys!!! I am excited for this race. My team Stewart/Haas does very well at this track!
I been sick as hell the last few days, and today is the worst of it. I haven’t did much lately, trying to get over this sickness. Hopefully soon!
Was nice to watch some Nascar again! After a 6 1/2 hour rain delay, they were able to do the race. My guy Tony Stewart and his team didn’t do so well. Which sucked, but least its only the first race of the season. I am not an Earnhardt fan, but it was good to see him win. All the triumph and tragedy, and for him to win, was priceless.
I am looking forward to the Airfest 2014! Tickets went on sale the other day. The Thunderbirds will be the headliner. I am looking forward to seeing who the static aircraft are. The F-35 I heard is now doing airshows, that would be nice to see.
I am trying to add a weather radar to my website. It sounds simple, but I been at a standstill trying to figure it out. Anyone have an idea how to add a weather radar to my site?
Mother Nature has been a tease lately. This “warmth” of 40 degrees. And then its going to be freezing again here for awhile. I am so sick of winter. The positive thing is, technically only 1 month left of winter!!! I am going to enjoy spring and summer to the fullest this year! I am going to soak up all the warmth I can get.
I can now make it public and official. I have partnered up with the Winnebago County. Below you can see I have partnered up with mayors, elected officials, police chiefs, and chair-board members and other organizations. To help promote the Knockout crime and neighborhood watches in our area.
I think it is funny how some try to secretly apologize, for when they turned against me. They sit there and openly talk shit or support others who do. But then try to apologize in secret.
I am one who will let my actions speak for my words. Let others talk shit. Because when I do not openly speak my half of a story, I can see who my true friends really are. Because they will never turn their backs on a true friend…
Been a lot going on lately. My grandpa passed away recently and I been trying to cope with that situation. It is rough. But my grandpa taught me alot and I am able to hold my head up high knowing he was my inspiration in alot of things. So, I am getting a lil better at coping with his death, knowing that he taught me well and i am able to carry on his knowledge.
A day after my grandpas funeral, my dad went into the hospital. I want to send out a special thank you to Metro Ambulance, ATS Ambulance, Swedish American Hospital and also East Bank Center for taking good care of my dad. I can not say thank you enough, much appreciated!
I have a meeting on Friday, I can not say exactly what it is about yet. But I wonder if it is going to be deja vu from a few months back? That is all I am going to say for now.
Yes, once again I am going to bitch about the winter. You are probably tired of hearing me bitch about it, LOL. But oh well. I hate winter as is, but this winter has been bad and has dragged on for so long. We had snow today, and it is now once again going to be back below zero temps. God, What I would give to have 40 degrees right now! That would be a major heat wave.
I figured I would blog for a few minutes. I haven’t been in a blogging mood lately. (see recent posts) I am sitting here thinking of just how shitty this cold weather really is. Yes, we live in the midwest and this is “common” but seriously, -40 wind chills! That is like Antarctica shit. I would be happy with just a 20 degree day right now! Yes, can you imagine me saying that! LMAO but seriously, that is how bad it is. Winter SUCKS!
William Slatton, or better known as grandpa to me. He lived 77 great years on this wonderful planet we call earth. During those 77 years, he was able to touch many peoples lives in many ways. He married my grandma, and was almost married 58 years. During that time, they had several children. And then grandchildren, and great grandchildren. I was one of the lucky ones to have him as my grandpa.
For as far back as I can remember, he was a caring, loving, hard working man. He was in the Army and also worked at Sunbeam and Rockford Products for many years. He loved all of us with his heart and soul. He helped those in need when needed. He always had an open door.
He would sit in his chair with his Folgers coffee and have sports or cartoons on the T.V. and the scanner going as well. He would be trying to figure out the lottery numbers with my dad, bound and determined to hit it big one day. Telling jokes to the grandkids, sneaking candy to them while he hid his own stash of candy.
In his early years, He would play pool with Dallas West, and beat him all the time. My grandpa went to the Army and Dallas went to Vegas. And he was also a caddy for Arnold Palmer. My grandpa had definitely lived a great 77 years on this earth.
My grandpa inspired me with the police scanners, and I was able to make Rockford Scanner. I have dedicated Rockford Scanner to him. He was my motivation and inspiration for the scanner hobby. I remember every time I went over to his house, the scanner would be blaring. He taught me a lot about the scanner from the 10 codes, to how to program and use one. And with that knowledge he gave me, I have been able to create something that is now shared worldwide.
God has received a special angel up there in heaven. My heart aches knowing you are no longer here with us. But you will always remain in my heart forever! One day, we will meet up again soon. And then we can kick back and bet on some of those legendary horses up there. I miss you deeply grandpa. I love you with my heart and soul. May you Rest In Peace, and we will one day soon, we will see each other again.
