what's wrong with the world today: Deep Fried Veggies

I'm really not sure which is worse: deep fried Twinkies, or deep fried vegetables.

On the one hand, you are admitting the fact that this is unhealthy for you and you're saying, "What the heck, let's make that Twinkie deep fried and go ahead and clog all the arteries at once." But with the vegetables I feel like someone said, "You know guys, we are eating way to unhealthy here at the Brown County Fair, it's time we introduce veggies as a fair food. What's more healthy than veggies?" and then they dropped them in 4 gallons of boiling peanut grease.

That's the Brown county fair for ya. Commonly known as the LittleStateFair.com.

Katie and my first date as parents and we decided to go eat deep-fried everything (corn dogs, waffle cake, and elephant ears) and watch the tractor pull. It don't get no more romantic than that. Shoo.

So there we are, watching this culturally foreign concept known as "tractor pulling" (for those of you who don't know, a "tractor pull" is when you take an amped up tractor, tie it to a heavy sled, and drive as fast and as far as you can without blowing up your engine or veering off to a side and killing someone). We were watching and commenting to each other about what we thought the rules of engagement were when the lady in front of us turned around and politely explained that our guesses were correct. Yes, you heard me right. An old woman with canine-like hearing knows the rules of a tractor pull. She probably couldn't tell you what J-walking is, how to hail a taxie, or what a solid red light means, but by golly, she knows the rules of a tractor pull.

Prop of the night goes to the husband-wife tractor team, in which the wife almost ran over her husband halfway down the racing strip. Way to end the argument sweetie.

Threatened By a Baby

My sister always dreamed of having a pet tiger. She is a cat person and so the thought of having a tiger as a pet was always intriguing for her. I figured that was a pretty cool idea but didn't think it was very feasible. Come to find out, there are a bunch of stories out there of people who adopted a tiger as a baby, nursed it, trained it, and now have a house pet that is capable of ripping their head off without much effort.

If you came across a full grown tiger on the Savana you would likely find that to be worrisome. After all, the Savana is the Tiger's natural habitat; you are on his turf and you look a lot like lunch. You know it, and he knows it. And your chances of survival are somewhere between slim and none.

But if you came across a tiger cub you would likely not feel threatened at all. At worst this little tiger cub is going to gnaw on your leg or claw your shin but it would just be irritating and wouldn't even draw blood.

This leads me to conclude that the reaso…

Xmas parties

When you throw two Christmas parties over the course of 2 days to two different music groups at church, and you only get a .231 appearance rate....is it really worth it?

Rent to Own Garages of Greatness

I've recently come into a great partnership. I have often wanted a place to store my tools and keep my car dry on rainy days. But I haven't figured out a good way to pay for such an expensive proposition. Of course I could build one, but I recently found that there is a company here in Ohio who builds these garages for a small mark-up and will deliver it ready to use.

Cincy Sheds offers these garages for sale or in a rent-to-own option. You pay 36 payments on a monthly basis of somewhere around $500 and you own the garage at the end of everything.

Why pay to have storage space at some location at a big storage facility when you can have a storage unit brought to your house? And these look classy too!
