I just had my "fun" call. Caller ID showed a # that I mistook for my son. It was a telemarketer wanting to give me "free" installation on a security system if I would let them put a sign on my lawn.

I told him I live in the boondocks and the only people seeing the sign would be hunters riding 4 wheelers or the mail lady in a JEEP.

For personal protection, I have a bad dog and what could be considered an "assault" weapon plus some pistols.

And to protect my old junky stuff, I have insurance with full replacement cost on contents and I really could use a new Lazy Boy recliner and an upgrade on my TV. LOL

I have inadvertently used a different name on here. I didn't mean it. But I do live in a small community with an ex who does not like me and would like to cause trouble. With that said. I noticed in the Wallyworld paper that they have begun carrying that Wolf brand chili. Was thinking of trying it.I really need to go though. You all have a pleasant day...

Even the owner/operators pay their dues. Box trailers require the drivers to do a lot of "dolly" work and flat bedders have to get out in all kinds of weather and climb up on the load to stretch heavy tarps. That can be dangerous in icy conditions.
No disrespect there AW, I went on a couple runs, surrounding states, no long hauls. I seen all the hard work owner/operators do. I don't know how they do it, let alone long hauls and being away from their families. I meant for someone starting out or back at the bottom of list in a company. That moving up concept while getting better runs, trucks, etc..or working for that rig of their own. It is one of the most unappreciative professions out there. They are a unique bunch and we would grind to a halt without them.

Stay away from the Wolf Brand chili, it is awful. I think it is way too spicy and covered in grease.

Kroger has the Wolf chili $1 a can this week, if you go to coupons.com there is a .40 cents off coupon which Kroger doubles. The cost of a can is then .20 cents. Not to bad if you want to try a can

I knew you meant no disrespect. The advantage to being a company driver is that they have to maintain the equipment and owner/operators either pay big money for newer rigs, or just when they think they are a few dollars ahead of the game, here comes a breakdown. It is like I have posted on here several times before "Every Rose Has A Thorn".

In the Black neighborhoods, where food stamp amounts allotted no longer feeds the people, they must go to beg at churches for food.
The workers at the church get the best available food and the minions get what little is left, most of which they do not even like.
If you apply for food stamps now, they do not expedite help for you even if you are starving.
You get a small jar of peanut butter, with no bread or crackers to put it on, and two small boxes of corn chex to last a family of three up to potentially 2 weeks or more if help actually even comes at all.
You also get 2 pints or quarts of fake milk as well.
The local Kroger's shelves are becoming bare as we speak.
The fights over food are almost upon us.
The end is certainly near.
A usurper has killed this once free and vibrant country.
No one is hiring, many more companies plan to close their doors, such as Best Buy, Kmart, Sears and J.C. Penny to name a few.
I am so sorry to hear that, but I know that it is true. There are many more people living out on the fringe who want to work, but can't make a living wage. I think that single-parent homes have it the worst....it takes a lot more than peanut butter and fake milk to sustain people, especially children. I donate to a feed the children fund, giving what few dollars that I can afford. I have donated to food pantries, but there must be a better way to help those less fortunate, but what it is, I do not know.

hubby and i gave up on finding a good can of chili from the super market. obviously this is subject to individual taste preference, but we believe a truly good can of store bought chili, does not exist. we can do spicy, but we like the spice of fresh jalapenos and green chili's, fresh green peppers and onions and one packet of French's chili-o.
not the spicy you get from the store canned variety that's often over loaded with enough chili powder to give a small horse an infarction
we pressure canned our own last year and were more than happy with the results. the beef only gets more tender and a quart sized mason jar holds just enough for us each to have a bowl and for him to take a bowl to work.

the plan was to have the cans as back up for when we didn't feel like putting a new crock on, and for me to stay on my every two week chili making schedule..... but it didn't go that way. we just kept opening up the cans till they were gone :)

we eat a lot of chili around here to the point that the ingredients including the pack of ritz crackers are put on our store budget equal to things like toilet paper and cat food and i think at this point hubby would think i had dropped my basket if he didn't come home one Friday morning to a crock of chili.

good chili is an art and it most definitely does not come out of a labeled can.

really i am just fickle..... i don't cook to cater to anyone else tastes but my own. if one doesn't like something, they can make a pp&j. luckily hubby likes the way i cook and has similar buds. or maybe he just doesn't want to live off of Pb&j's and Vienna sausages .....
Hmmm

@Betty. the only good chili I have found in the Market's is Bush's chili magic starter and you add meat and tomatoes. Caroll Shelby's packet fixings in a brown bag is fair. it is basically all the spices including some (can't think of the name) spicy flour if you like thicker, but it is for a bigger batch than I want at any particular sitting. I would make that if it was for more than just me.

In light of all the badness in our world these days, here's a spot of good news.

http://www.cnn.com/2013/02/04/us/alabama-chil ...

~~
Midland City, Alabama (CNN)-- A six-day hostage standoff came to an end Monday when a man holed up a bunker was found dead and police recovered the 5-year-old he abducted, according to a law enforcement official.

The child appeared to be OK emerging from the ordeal, the official said.

Two ambulances left the scene shortly before 4 p.m.(5 p.m. ET).
