Ballseyes Firearms Accessories Tournament 2 - Winner

There were only 9 entrants into this version of Ballseye's Firearms Accessories Tournament. The contest was to guess how many boxes of ammunition were in my foot locker/trunk, on November 6, 2008, the person coming closest would be the winner.

The guesses sent in were: 325, 166, 158, 137, 117, 98, 75, 72, and 61.

The actual number of boxes of ammo in the foot locker was 266. That makes the guess of 325 the closest. That entry was sent in by Jered, who now needs to contact me with his mailing adress and some other info, upon which I will send out the scope that was the prize to him.

All the best,
Glenn B


Ballseye's Firearms Accessories Tournament 2

I will announce the winner sometime this afternoon. This morning I'll be driving out to see my mom and should spend a few hours with her. I should get back home by around 3 or 4 in the afternoon. Right now I have got to get going. Have a happy Thanksgiving.

Later for you,

6 Pretty Hefty Frogs...

...2 pounds of shrimp, and a pound and a half of scallops should blend nicely with some other ingredients (like butter, salt, white pepper, sliced almonds, or sliced chestnuts, some shallots or green onions and whatever else I can come up with) for me to come up with one heck of a delicious appetizer for our Thanksgiving dinner. Then again, I may have to hold off on things because I have to travel to see my mom tomorrow, then head back home for our holiday meal; and you can bet my wife is not going to off a half dozen frogs then gut em and saute em . An outdoorsy catch em, skin em, cook em Sarah Palin type she is not; but she is one darned good cook. It's just she sure won't cook those frogs, I'd bet on it myself. But I digress. My day will be filled with running around and that will have time being very tight for me, so those frogs may yet make it until Friday - but you can bet they are not getting any sort of a presidential pardon around here from me. It's just been way too long since I have enjoyed frogs legs.

Oh, if you are wondering where I came up with 6 large live frogs in New York in November just let me tell you that you can buy just about anything in Chinatown when it comes to good eats. Thats where I picked up the shrimp, the sea scallops and the chestnuts too. I am getting hungry just thinking about it all. Mmmmmm gooood.

All the best,
Glenn B

Happy Thanksgiving To All

May it be a peaceful day here in the USA. I wish I could say the same for the rest of the world, but India is having one hell of a troubling time right now. Damn these piece of shit evil terrorists who prey on the weak, the unsuspecting, the innocent. While we are at damning them we really ought to think about killing all of em too, and then ought to get serious about it. Maybe that is not a very Thanksgiving like thought or so you may think; but I would be darned thankful to wake up to find out every last one of them was wiped out while I slept.

All the best,
