Need info on Cowboy Church in Bowling Green please

I have poked around in the local papers and the internet but I can't seem to find much info at all on the Cowboy Church in Bowling Green. I am looking for overview info, what times and locations as well as general information on the basics of the church. If anyone has a good web address, I would sure appriciate it.  (Dec 29, 2009 | post #1)

Things can only stay bad for so long. Then the law of averages kicks in and things get better. Just give it time. I went thru an awful lot before it got this good. But don't let it get to you. Really - when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. You knew that before. It still applies. Don't misunderstand me. Things are rough here. Like I said, between the two of us we dont have a single job. Right now we are relying off the farm for our food and income. Our freezers are full but we don't have cable or long distance on our phone. We have only dial up. But life is still good. We do the work ourselves but there is a whole lot of satisfaction in knowing the job was done the way we want it done. There is a whole lot of good in knowing that the food we eat tonight was raised properly. Life is good. It might be tough, but we have no problem sleeping at night. You got to quit looking at the external for the happiness. It's exclusivly internal. Try looking within. Cheer up. It will get better. It's only a matter of time. So kick back, and be thankful for the buzz. Sometimes the buzz is still good.  (Feb 7, 2009 | post #8)

haha... you had me going there trucker... till you said you still got a job! Ha! No wonder you can't get unemployment! ha whew. Now I feel better. haha. you had me worried there. Where. Me nor my spouse have a job. We get no government aid. (and I'm glad) But we have a farm. We had home raised T-bone steaks, baked potatoes and mac and cheese tonight with Blackberry wine from St. Genevive. It was delicious. It was a terrific night. It'll be even better next week. Cause next week is "special ". We also spent the day riding our hay burners and trimming up their feet. It really was a great day. We may not have a job but we have each other and our farm family. And I, very humbly, say Thank You to the One that brought it all about.  (Feb 7, 2009 | post #7)

How many people who get on here still live in Cahokia

I used to be from there and really liked it for the most part. Got married and moved up here - the old "family home" burned down just a few months after I moved (thankfully it belonged to BP then as it had been declared "contaminated " by Floyds Gas Station. Still haven't been able to just "let go" so for me, this is the closest I have to my old friends. Sometimes some of them pop on but unfortunatly, I usually can't recognize them till it's much too late.  (Feb 1, 2009 | post #75)

If you live in Cahokia

Now you know it's time we all become a little more careful about what we actually say on here... that being said I think that those idiots who are always screaming "you can't say that!!" need to just SHUT THE F__K UP! We are all people. Sometime we just need to rant and rage in order to get it out of our systems! This is a safe way to do it. We certainly wouldn't want any of our co-workers losing it some fine sunny morning and comming into work with a couple of shotguns and a pistol and going off on us! By all means - do it here where it helps!

Vadilia Onions are what I use in everything. No more heartburn!!! They work best when cooked or carameled but seems to be much better on my stomach then the other onions. However - if and when heartburn happens, I use a swig of pickle juice (my friends use real apple cider vinagar just as successfully) which actuall "cures" the stomach if done for an extended time period (more then a year) but then I took perscribed medicines for over 7 years.

As a tax payer i'm fed up

Heck, up here, I'd be happy if they just scrape my road. oh... and by the way, here's my disclaimer...

Pets

I personally raised rabbits as did my husband. Alfalfa provides much more nutrition then you might think. I have many more animals that survive off of it just fine. That includes horses, pigs, cows and a donkey. Though their diets change (as the weather and seasons change) there are times when theey are strictly on alfalfa. And the wild rabbits that live in our alfalfa fields also do just fine, most look fat. The deer that are out there also appear quite healthy. Salt is a mineral, not a food. However, the best diet is and will always be "variety ". I believe thats what I said, if it was not read that way, I apoligize as there must have been a communication issue. We raise chemical free beef and they do very well. We raise our own feed to assure that the cows do not get growth hormones and overdose on antibiotics. We have butchered both corn fed and alfalfa fed and we prefer the flavor of the alfalfa fed beef. But that is a personal opinion. You might think that a cow isn't even close to a rabbit. But please don't forget that both me and my husband have raised almost every type of domestic animal that you can find in this country. We also have a veternarian and her teaching husband veternarian as best friends. They also raise beef cattle (for market as we do). They also raise their own food.  (Dec 22, 2008 | post #20)

Do you support the death penalty?

and maybe a CEO season as well. :)  (Dec 22, 2008 | post #3)

Do you support the death penalty?

Depends on the circumstances. I think each and every case needs to be reviewed thouroughly. (sp?) A persons life is at stake and that needs to be first and formost on the minds of the juries. But then, if in fact this is the responsible party for someone elses death, then I don't think we should continue to support them, pay for their food and housing and give them the perks. I think the best we can do is how we do it now. A group of citizens listen to the facts and then debate the penelty. But the ability to go "that far" needs to be there. I think however, that we should have a "lawyer season". This can help keep them honest ;) and not so greedy.  (Dec 22, 2008 | post #2)
