Hey You- So Called Classic Rock Station in San Antonio

Some real classic rock from the early seventies

Carole King’s Tapestry album broke every sales record in the history of recording. Her album stayed on the top 100 album chart for like 50 weeks, a feat unprecedented…until 1973. Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon broke all her records. Dark Side stayed on the top 100 album list for like 8 years.
Yes, Carole King is definitely part of the classic rock building blocks…as is Carly Simon

Who could forget her album cover?

Now, you classic rock rookies at The Eagle, get some new music…it’s all out there.

106.7 The Eagle

I’ve kept my mouth shut too long. These guys would be the laughing stock of the classic rock music station club…if there was one.
They just found out that Guns N Roses are coming to San Antonio…next year…in September. They are already giving away tickets. It’s gonna be difficult for the next ten months…all those hardons bumping into each other.
You know how sometimes the station will get pre-recorded blurbs like “hi this is so and so”?
This station does it too but they don’t play music by the artists they wave flags for…specifically Elton John…not one song…ever.
Then there’s Yes. Now you and I both know that Jon Anderson and company have more albums out than Carter has pills.
How many songs by Yes does 106.7 The Eagle play on their station?
One. “Owner Of A Lonely Heart” from 90125. That’s it. One fracking song.
You guys may not be the laughing stock, but you are certainly a disgrace.
No Jethro Tull, or Badfinger.
One Deep Purple song: Smoke On The Water.
One song by The Doors: Hello I Love You.
Alice Cooper? Fagetaboutit.
Heart? Two songs from the Dreamboat Annie album, and Barracuda.
The Who? You’re not gonna believe this…not one.
These guys blow a lot of airtime patting themselves on the back, puffing out their chest about how great they are.
You know what it is? It’s Classic Rock HELL!!!!
ZZ Top? The only song they play from the ‘classic’ days is La Grange.
Nothing from De Guello or Fandango or El Loco.
Not a single song from the following:
Allman Brothers
Black Sabbath
Grateful Dead
Commander Cody
Blood,Sweat, & Tears
Iron Butterfly
Joe Walsh (except Eagles)
Moody Blues
Ten Years After
And now the clincher: The only self-proclaimed classic rock station that plays no Steppenwolf…
The horror…the horror…
The list goes on.
Tunein.com is the name of the corp that employs those poor bastards.
It’s the “dumbing down” of America.
San Antonio is turning into a big McAllen.
Look at the site and study the corporate lineup. You’ll see what I mean 😉.
Want more?
Every day at noon, these poor bastards do a Spotlight of a band or person, and they play several songs from said artists. Yesterday, they Spotlighted Roger Glover, bassist for Deep Purple. Know what they played?
‘Smoke On The Water’ because that’s the only song they have from the band.
How fucking embarrassing for Glover.
What happened? Did you guys just get the first round of “Classic Rock CDs”? And didn’t pay for round two? That’s why you play the same songs over and over and over and over and over and over many many times per day.
In Denver, The Fox fm used to have “no repeat Thursday”. I’ll bet you clowns couldn’t even have no repeat half day.
Five bucks says you poor bastids never heard of King Crimson or The Nice. Vanilla Fudge? Captain Beefheart? I guess the James Gang would also fall into your lack of knowledge about your career.

Now that’s classic rock. Makes me wanna dig out my black light.
I am not going to let this go.

Comments Still Damaged

I found twenty comments in the trash. I will be unable to fix it until I get home to the real internet.
After our most recent trip to Ft Worth, wife is better now with new medication, which has brought a new set of complications for her tiny body.
She was several days late in coming to the ranch due to the total rebuild of the walkin shower at home. $3400 later, maxed out both our cards, and she had to get a Lowe’s card to buy the tile. See? I cannot afford to be away from home as stuff is always breaking; pool, kitchen sink, toilet, aquarium, d/w, washing machine…
Thursday, I happened by the water heater cubby, and the carpet went”squish” as I passed by.
Replacing the heater was no big deal. The biggest problem is that I cannot get the water to shut completely off. I shut the valve off for this part of the house, and the main valve from the well house, still a steady trickle. More than six gallons overnight.
Now I have to replace the flex hoses as the old ones are too old and leak.
And now the kitchen faucet is just a trickle, which means it’s probably bad.
I know. Could be worse.
I think I need to go home for a few days.
It has been raining here since Friday, and still have flash flooding warnings into tomorrow.
Not even gonna mention having to listen to San Antonio’s wannabe classic rock station. A-G-O-N-Y
The flex hose replacement went quickly and painlessly. Seals seem to be holding, so we’re calling it a success.
I drove to Kerrville today to see my new doctor, get meds refilled, and on the way out of town, I stopped for gas. Strictly routine, but when I started my truck after filling up, I felt something wrong with the engine as it began to shake, then the “check engine” began to flash.
I drove the eighteen or so miles back to the ranch, debating on whether or not to drive drive directly to the local auto garage, and decided to drive to the ranch first…just to look for myself.
I did call the shop to see how backed up they were, and the lady asked what was wrong.
I ‘splained the situation, and after passing me to one of the mechanics, he said it had a “miss” and bring it up after lunch.
Now lemme tell you a lil’ story…
Once upon a time, about oh five years ago, this same truck had a “miss”.
Shoulda been easy, right?
First, the plugs. No help.
Next, the wires. Nope.
Then the coil. Then it didn’t run at all. Throwing my hands up with disgust, I called my shade tree mechanic, had it towed there, and he had it fixed in a couple days.
I know you’re dying to know..
A broken valve spring.
Sooo, I went out and looked at the engine after a bit, and found a couple of plug wires lying on the manifold. The “miss” has left.
Looks like a new set of plug wires are in my immediate future.
I was thinking about driving home for a few days.

About Emergency Essentials

True story…
I have a Volcano II multi fuel stove. It’s pretty handy as it folds up, has a carrying case, runs on charcoal, wood, and with the right option, it can burn propane as well.
I decided to purchase that option, and Emergency Essentials advertised that they sold them, so I ordered one. I gave them my CC info, and anxiously for its arrival, as the site emailed me saying it would be shipped the next day.
Two weeks went by, and I emailed them about the order.
Another week went by, and I got a follow up email asking if customer service had satisfied my concern.
I took this golden opportunity to let someone who gave a shit know that they had dropped the ball…big time.
Another week went by, and I sent yet another email about my order as my CC had not been charged yet. I also asked if the particular email box was monitored.
I got a reply this time. “Oh, we don’t have any more of those”. And yes the email box was closely watched, and why was I so upset.
After the dust settled, and the smoke cleared, and X’s veins in his forehead returned to normal, it was decided that X not do business with them, and tell the world my story.
I am telling you this because I noticed these pricks advertise on my blog.
I recommend that you shop elsewhere besides Emergency Essentials for your prepping supplies.

Fermented Liquid Refreshments

Today, I am bottling the wheat beer. I used nine lbs of wheat dme, an ounce of Hallertauer hops, and a German yeast. It should be drinkable in a couple weeks.
The hard cider is done with phase one ferment. It went below zero. Damn! Dry but strong. Now time rack and clear. Those will all be bottled in one liter PET bottles. Get your name in the hat and I’ll see what I can do.
I watched a buck “get some” this afternoon. It’s that time of year.
I am still composting the five raised gardens. The soil is really looking good.
I planted a pair of dwarf blueberry bushes. We’ll see how they do.
Wife saw a specialist for her arthritis in Ft Worth last week. Her pain is gone. (Angelic choir and light from above). It’s a miracle. She will be here all next week. Her first time off since Pop’s funeral in August.
Had to drop $2100 on a new walkin shower at the other house. New pan, liner, tile, and faucet.
This is much harder to do on a smartphone.



I must admit that I was worried.

Not any more.

I doubt if Swillary would have shown the class that Trump did after the votes were tallied.

She showed her true colors last night when she abandoned her followers without a word.

As far as the celebrity liberals that are moving to Canada to pout and sulk, I just gotta say, need a lift?

Now let’s put this behind us, and busy ourselves with making the peace.


OK, Now the last one…

I don’t know what happened.

My spam queue got sidetracked with a bunch of your comments and went ape shit labelling then as spam and they ended up in a dark place…like purgatory. Among those that have been restored were from dr Jim, Tony T square, Michigan Doug, Pete, Taminator, Phil, and many more.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to remedy this in the time I have left here with real internet.

I appreciated your comments…all of them. Please continue to do so if you are so inspired.

I am so honored that you good folks put me on your blogrolls.

One Last Note…

In the wake of the 2012 “election”, one of our fellow bloggers, who appears on many of YOUR blogrolls (not on mine), cried and whined like a little girl about  how he had voted Libertarian, and shame on all of us who did not vote that way. I could not believe his crybaby attitude, and subsequently removed him from my blogroll after that.

I looked at his blog archive, and they don’t even go back to 2012. Probably because he used to use another name for the blog.

Vote responsibly? What the hell does that mean? Sounds like a middle-of-the-road approach.

You and I cannot afford another four years with a democrat in the white house.

Got it?

The only way we keep out the Clintons (yes, both of them) is to vote for Donald…period.

Smoke it, choke on it, slam it down, chug it, eat it, swallow it, deal with it, suck it up, bite the bullet, face the music, stand up and take it, whatever you gotta do just take a bite of the shit sammich and vote for Trump.

If you don’t, we all lose. You, I, all the frickin’ illegal Mescans running through my town, all the sand niggers now getting paychecks when many of our veterans are homeless, radical muslims entering our country every day, and are coddled by the administration…yes, all will suffer eventually.

You know who won’t suffer? The assholes that want them here; namely Obamski, who just ordered a higher fence around the black house, and the rest of the administration and bleeding heart liberals.

On my trip down on Sunday, I noticed an increase in folks being pulled over by State Troopers, and DHS vehicles…noticeable increase.  These unfortunates were all  northbound.

I decided to head back tomorrow on Election Day, instead of “wait and see what happens.” I brought the trailer again. This trip I removed the ramp, and stowed it in the trailer. It greatly increased my gas mileage that other trips of late with the gate attached and upright.

Forecast is for rain all the way up on Tuesday, at origin and destination.

I don’t know when my next post will be. It’s very difficult to blog from a smartphone at the ranch, and given the speed of internet at said ranch, which is little more than 3G.

If Trump loses, we all lose.

I ain’t sayin’ that Trump is going to solve all our problems, or that he is the savior of the United States.

He is the lesser of the evils, that is all.

You Might Find This Interesting…Pedophile Clintons

This huge post is from Mike Miles. I have written before about Slick Willie and his johnson venturing on the ‘rape plane’.

I did not know that Swillary has a taste for the young girls as well.

Just when you think nothing else will surprise you…

Your tax dollars at work……..

First Grandma Marian Robinson to Receive Lifetime $160K Government Pension


Photo by Steve Jurvetson via Flickr (CC BY 4.0) Photo by Steve Jurvetson via Flickr (CC BY 4.0) Washington D.C. – First Grandma Marian Robinson, 79, will receive a lifetime 160K government pension when she leaves the White House next year, according to congressional budget statements.

According to documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), Mrs. Robinson earned the lifetime pension for “services rendered as full-time/in-home caregiver” for granddaughters Malia, 18, and Sasha, 15, during President Obama’s two terms in office.

In January of 2009, it was reported that Mrs. Robinson was living in the White House full-time to tend to her granddaughters. She was the first live-in grandmother at the White House since Elivera M. Doud, the mother of Mamie Eisenhower, during the Eisenhower Administration.
Critics say Mrs. Robinson should not profit from something as simple as taking care of family. Sally Kellner, volunteer/activist for the National Taxpayers Union, says this is a prime example of needless spending. “I think it’s ridiculous that taxpayers must pay this woman a lifetime salary for something everyday Americans do for free. We take care of our families because we love them, not for profit.”

When asked if Mrs. Robinson’s lifetime pension was justified, Senator Mike Enzi (R-WY), Chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, declined to comment but said a special oversight committee would review all post-Obama Administration budgetary obligations.

Before her son-in-law became President of the United States, Mrs. Robinson had never been abroad. Now, after almost eight years of being the nation’s Grandmother-In-Chief, she’s a seasoned world traveler who has, accompanied by her granddaughters, been to Senegal, Tanzania, China and Italy, where she even met the Pope.

“She’s been the rock of the family,” says Obama family friend and biographer Peter Slevin. “It’s been a real blessing for the girls (Malia & Sasha) to have their grandma with them during these formative years,” he said.
Shortly after the 2008 presidential election, President Obama called Robinson “One of the unsung heroes” of his campaign, and said, “We couldn’t have done it without her.” First Lady Michelle Obama has said that if Robinson had not been available to step in and watch over the girls, Obama might never have launched his campaign.
While holding no official job title, Mrs. Robinson likely qualified for her lifetime pension under the “optional” eligibility requirement for the Civil Service Retirement Act (CSRS).

Cider Time

It’s time for X’s fall cider. This year, X is using 6 gallons of Louisburg cider, and 5 lbs of honey. I boiled down 2 gallons to one, then let cool overnight.

I added 2 lbs of raisins and 2 thinly sliced lemons.

I am using the Lalvin 1118 wine yeast this year.

The original gravity was 1.086.

I have supplies coming in to make a batch of wheat beer too that should be ready by Christmas.

Brief Visit Before Returning

As I was saying, I came south to get a new windshield, then pass state inspection, then my license sticker, then another load of stuff, then back to the ranch.

My windshield appointment is Monday morning, after which I will work on getting the inspection.

Early voting begins on Monday as well.

If Swillary wins, I will be making run after run until the move is done.

Will still have until the 20th of January before she/it will take office. It will be a cold day for sure if she wins.

I did get the fridges switched out at the ranch. The old one took up a whole lot more space in the pantry than I planned.

The deep freeze fit nicely into its spot. I may have to switch their places. The deep freeze did not need dry ice after all as contents remained frozen for the five hour trip.

The windshield got installed, passed inspection, and got my license sticker. Now gotta get some meds renewed, and do the early voting thing before going back.

About The Upcoming Election…

I have said it before, and I’ll say it one last time before the hammer falls.

This election is not about voting someone into office, it’s about keeping Hillary out of the white house.

That means that all of you that “vote your conscience” and go Libertarian because it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy, will usher Hillary into office. Don’t do that.

The only way to keep her out is vote Trump in.


A good article I found at The Feral Irishman’s place.

It’s up to us now.

We don’t want this in the white house.

Democrats And Guns Don’t Mix

 One more for your enjoyment…….
Wow, the answer was in front of us all the time!
In 1865 a Democrat shot and killed Lincoln, President of the  United States.
In 1881 a left wing radical Democrat shot James Garfield, President of the  United States – who later died from the wound.
In 1963 a radical left wing socialist shot and killed John F. Kennedy, President of the  United States.
In 1975 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at Gerald Ford, President of the  United States.
In 1983 a registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan, President of the  United States.
In 1984 James Hubert, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 22 people in a McDonalds restaurant.
In 1986 Patrick Sherrill, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 15 people in an  Oklahoma post office.
In 1990 James Pough, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 10 people at a GMAC office.
In 1991 George Hennard, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 23 people in a Luby’s cafeteria in  Killeen, TX
In 1995 James Daniel Simpson, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 5 co-workers in a Texas laboratory.
In 1999 Larry Asbrook, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 8 people at a church service.
In 2001 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at the White House in a failed attempt to kill George W. Bush, President of the US …
In 2003 Douglas Williams, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people at a Lockheed Martin plant.
In 2007 a registered Democrat named Seung – Hui Cho, shot and killed 32 people in Virginia Tech.
In 2010 a mentally ill registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner, shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed 6 others.
In 2011 a registered Democrat named James Holmes, went into a movie theater and shot and killed 12 people.
In 2012 Andrew Engeldinger, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people in  Minneapolis .
In 2013 a registered Democrat named Adam Lanza, shot and killed 26 people in a school in  Newtown, CT.
As recently as Sept 2013, an angry Democrat shot 12 at a Navy ship yard.
Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats and guns.
2016 All of the Democrats in Chicago are killing each other… over 500 killed so far this year.
Not one NRA member, Tea Party member, or Republican conservative was involved in any of these shootings and murders.
SOLUTION:  It should be illegal for Democrats to own guns.
We don’t need gun control, we need Democrat control.
Guns don’t kill people, Democrats do!

Politics In A Nutshell

For your perusal

 This is somewhat frightening, too.   TRUE ??
Lots of truth here
Election 2016 is coming!
Have never heard this said as simply or as well:
The folks who are getting the free stuff don’t like
The folks who are paying for the free stuff, because
The folks who are paying for the  free stuff  can no longer
Afford to pay for both the  free stuff and  their own stuff.And the folks who are paying for the free  stuff
Want the free stuff to stop.
And the folks who are getting the  free stuff  want even more   Free stuff  on top of the  free stuff   they are already getting!

Now… The people who are forcing the people who pay
For the free stuff  have told the people who are RECEIVING
The free stuff  that the people who are PAYING for the
Free stuff  are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.

So… The people who are GETTING the free stuff  have been convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the Free stuff  by the people who are forcing some people to pay for their free stuff  and giving them the free stuff in the first place.

We have let the free stuff  giving go on for so long that there are now more people getting  free stuff  than paying for the   Free stuff .

Now understand this.  All great democracies have committed financial suicide somewhere between 200 and 250  years after being founded.

The reason?

The voters figured out they could vote themselves money
From the treasury by electing people who promised to give
Them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them.

The United States officially became a Republic in 1776, 238 years ago.

The number of people now getting free stuff  
outnumbers the people paying for the free stuff.

Failure to change that spells the end of the United States as we know it.
