I am tired of my blog design but I don't really know what I want. I also want to use more graphics but...well, I am hoping that the good people at Mandarin Design will be able to lift me out of the doldrums.
I had steak last night, and these days I think of Sam when I eat beef:
Last week I took around 10 old cows to Billings to sell. Damnedest thing happened when I was getting them in to load them, I couldn't see a brand on one of them. We studied this cow for the longest time and could not see sign one of a brand on her. She had our earmark but that was it. I went ahead and took her to Billings under a different permit saying the brand was unreadable, didn't want nobody claiming I stole her, and figured the brand inspectors could figure it out.
So Sarpy Sam has the expenses of: rounding up this cow; getting her old self into the trailer; hauling her down the road to Billings--with no guarantee that he's going to see one red cent for her, unless there's some way the brand magically appears on her hide.
Go read the rest of the story, and think of Sam & his neighbors and fellow cattlemen when you eat beef (or lamb).
I am being....an unauthorized unpaid user of someone else's wireless network rhat now.
I don't "wardrive" or warchalk, but as I wait for Al here & there I definitely check the little airport logo to see if there's a signal. This is a lot different from WarMoving If I find a signal, and I can use it, I do. Since I don't engage in illegal use of the internet, I haven't worried. Even if some spiritual folk are rousted in an area rich in irony also in officiousness.
Using somebody else's open internet connection in for lawful purposes.. That simple activity seems to have gotten Paul Timmons a misdemeanor conviction with the possibility of up to 12 months in custody. I don't get it.
Is it a crime to listen to somebody else's radio? How about watching the neighbor's cable service through the window?
