Let it snow

Trying to work today is like being a kid at the end of the school year.  Yes, I am the boss here, but I am a small office and my secretary has been in and out the last few days.  This leaves me here by myself.  Well, that would be ok but customers keep coming in wanting to make their payments – her job.  I have to post these up, make a report, do a deposit, and keep up with the front desk.  Along with that they all want to talk about the fact that we have a prediction of ice or snow for the next couple of days. 


Well, there talking, I am receipting and messing up.  But life goes on.  Come to think of it, I wished it would come 6 inches of snow.  So much that I have to stay at home and can’t go out.  I might get out and play in it like a kid.  I might go sledding down the hill.  I might build a snowman.  I might make snow ice cream.


I might need to get back to work.  Well – break is over.  Got to quit daydreaming. 


Let it snow!  Let it Snow!  Let it Snow!

Montana Tractors - Catch the Spirit!

Sponsor This Site

I enjoy writing, adding country and hunting recipes, and blogging about agriculture and the country way of life. However, to support my habit I have to work some things on this site such as advertising. This helps pay for the time, effort etc of keeping this up.

If someone wanted exclusive rights to the advertising for a month at a time or for longer, this could be arranged. Notice what I have done with Montana Tractors. If the company were to feed me info to put on the site, I could work this into a blog and really support their efforts.

I am beginning to gain readership and with the massive search engines, we could try to work it so that when people searched the word tractor or Montana, this site might pop in to the search engine. The words Hillbilly might intrigue them to pull it up and read about the product.

Of course the above is just an example.

The power of the blog in advertising is just being realized.

If you have any interest in this please email Hillbilly Willy by clicking here

Please put in the subject line Hillbilly blog advertising. This will keep me from trashing the email as spam.

It might help to know that I have been the VP of Technology in a large business, I have a masters degree in business, I have over 20 years of lending experience and I have a minor degree in English. Put this talent to work for you.

I also have a major blog on Agriculture. That could be worked into this also.

Grilled Duck Breasts

For 4 to 6 duck breast halves

Marinade:1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 to 2 teaspoons fresh garlic, minced fine
1 tablespoon fresh sage, chopped fine
2 tablespoons fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley, chopped fine
6 ounces teriyaki sauce
1 ounce Jack Daniel's (or just a splash more for good measure!)
salt and
fresh-ground black pepper

Mix all marinade ingredients together in a medium bowl.
Add the duck breasts and toss until evenly coated.
Put the meat and marinade into a zip-sealed plastic bag.
Place in the refrigerator and marinate for 2 to 4 hours.

Now, get your charcoal grill ready (you may use a gas grill, but you just don't get that same flavor).
When the flame has just died out, and the coals are stacked and hot, start placing the duck breasts on the grill.
Cook for about 2 1/2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until rare to medium rare.
Do not overcook!
Remove the breasts from the grill and let them rest for a minute.
Slice them on the bias and serve.

Note: Dried herbs may be substituted if fresh are not available. But reduce the measures by half.

Duck Season - Thrills and Spills

Well, another week has gone by here in the foothills of the Arkansas Ozarks. This is week when I wish that I had taken up more of the hunting sports in my younger years. What a thrill to listen to these guys come in from the big duck hunt, been out all day in the rain and the cold. "How many did you get" I asked. "Man there were lots of ducks flying." "Lots of Greenheads around today."
"How many did you get", I ask again. " The weather was just right today" they reply. "The ducks were flying low". " Lots of folks out to" "This is the last weekend of the season."
"How many did you get" I repeat for the third time.
"Oh, we just knocked down one" "Didn't want to make the dogs work to hard in that cold water"

Well there is also deer hunting. Not sure exactly what you can do in that hunting right now, but if nothing else, you can spotlight one or two. Wait a minute, thats illegal. If you get just one there it might be costly.

Hillbilly Going to Las Vegas

Willy says this is about the most tempting thing I have seen yet. As always, Willy sees things that are interesting and Willy blogs about them. This is Willies blog and Willy can do that. Willy showed up in Las Vegas about 15 years ago and had the time of his life.
Willy has now been researching going there on the WWW.

Heres what Willy sees that he likes. 10-4 Willy

Willy wants to be one of the 5,000 people who move to Las Vegas each month. The fun the gaming the atmosphere, there all great in Las Vegas. Willy believes that Las Vegas, filled with its great desert Climate would be the ideal place to retire. Willy is going to check out Las Vegas real estate and find out why it is such a great place to live.

When Willy moves to Las Vegas, he may want to check out Las Vegas real estate and see about first renting a home, live there a while and then decide where he might want to buy a home.

Willy will check: http://www.millionsaver.com/rentals/ to see what homes are available. Then after living there a while Willy will check out the resale homes listed by agents at http://www.millionsaver.com/search-resale-homes.htm Or if Willy decides to build a new home He will probably check out homes by builders: http://www.millionsaver.com/new-homes.htm

A page that will show examples of the incentives and rewards that are availabel in buying a new home is available at: http://www.millionsaver.com/new-homes.htm

But best of all this is a Mecca for gaming, fun, and beautiful women. Check out homes to buy at this site. and things to do by visiting the Las Vegas. See 10 Good reasons to live in Las Vegas.

But if your going to live there you've got to check out Las Vegas real estate

Willy says I cant wait to get there. Is that called retirement 10-4 Willy

Illegial Alien Petition

Willy says give me your opinions - please comment on this below.

Willy wants to know how people feel. Below is a petition that I received in email. This petition addresses something that I believe is very much at the root of some of the problems in our country today even in the rural areas. Here is our government passing bills to take our hard earned money and basically give it to people who are here illegally. That is the term the scares me. The body that makes and upholds the laws of this land is supporting people that are breaking the law. This is what our country has come to. 10-4 Willy
The Petition begins:

My Mom was a homemaker and Dad worked all his life and paid into SS. Dad has passed away and now my mom can barely make ends meet. While the possible "illegal" alien in front of her at the grocery store buys the name brands, my mom goes for the generic brands and day old breads. She doesn't have out of state calling on her phone, because she can't afford it, and shops at the thrift shops and dollar stores while the "illegal" aliens go to Macy's, Gap, J.C. Penny, Banana Republic, etc. She considers having a pizza delivered once a week "eating out". She grew up during the depression, watched her husband go overseas to fight in WW II a year after their marriage, and then they went on to raise, feed and clothe 5 children, scrounging to pay tuition for parochial schools.

I'm sorry, but I can't see how the Senate can justify this slap in the face to born and bred, or naturalized citizens. It is already impossible to live on Social Security alone. If they give benefits to "illegal" aliens who have never contributed, where does that leave us that have paid into Social Security all our working lives?

The Senate voted this week to allow "illegal" aliens access to Social Security benefits. Attached is an opportunity to sign A petition that requires citizenship for eligibility to receive Social services.

Willy is a little slow - but I done sent up a rocket compared to these guys! 10-4 Willy

  1. WILL THE REAL DUMMY PLEASE STAND UP?AT&T fired President John Walter after nine months, saying he lacked Intellectual leadership. He received a $26 million severance package. Perhaps it's not Walter who's lacking intelligence.

  2. WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM OUR FRIENDS:Police in Oakland, California spent two hours attempting to subdue a gunman, who had barricaded himself inside his home. After firing ten tear gas canisters, officers discovered that the man was standing beside them in the police line, shouting "Please ... Come out and give yourself up."

  3. WHAT WAS PLAN B???An Illinois man, pretending to have a gun, kidnapped a motorist and forced him to drive to two different automated teller machines, where the kidnapper proceeded to withdraw money from his own bank accounts.

  4. THE GETAWAY!A man walked into a Topeka, Kansas Kwik Stop, and asked for all the money in the cash drawer. Apparently, the take was too small, so he tied up the store clerk and worked the counter himself for three hours until police showed up and grabbed him.

  5. DID I SAY THAT???Police in Los Angeles had good luck with a robbery suspect who just couldn't control himself during a lineup. When detectives asked each man in the lineup to repeat the words "Give me all your money or I'll shoot", the man shouted, "That's not what I said!"

  6. ARE WE COMMUNICATING??A man spoke frantically into the phone, "My wife is pregnant and her contractions are only two minutes apart!" "Is this her first child?" the doctor asked. "No!", the man shouted, "This is her husband!".

  7. NOT THE SHARPEST TOOL IN THE SHED!!In Modesto, California, Steven Richard King was arrested for trying to hold up a Bank of America branch without a weapon. King used a thumb and a finger to simulate a gun, but unfortunately, he failed to keep his hand in his pocket. (hellllllooooooo!)

  8. AND THE GRAND FINALE................ Last summer, down on Lake Isabella, located in the high desert, an hour east of Bakersfield, California, some folks, new to boating, were having problems. No matter how hard they tried, they couldn't get their brand new 22 ft going properly. It was very sluggish in almost every maneuver, no matter how much power was applied. After about an hour of trying to make it go, they putted to a nearby marina, thinking someone there could tell them what was wrong A thorough topside check revealed everything in perfect working condition. The engine ran fine, the outdrive went up and down, the prop was the correct size and pitch. So, one of the marina guys jumped into the water to check underneath, he came up choking on water, because he was laughing so hard.

NOW REMEMBER. THIS IS TRUE.Under the boat, still strapped securely in place, was the trailer

Bargains On Ebay - Willy says Here's How!

Willy says: this is what I like about Blogging. This Blog is Willy's and Willy can write about anything that Willy wants to write about. One day Willy may be taking out frustrations about politics, the next minute Willy may be passing on a funny and then Willy might just have the chance to pass on a great opportunity or idea to others. That is what Willy is blogging about today. It is called Ebay Typos.

Willy has bought and sold on Ebay now for about 5 years. When Willy is trying to buy on Ebay, Willy feels real good when he can find that great deal. Willy likes to buy cheap and sell High!

Well guess what? Willy has found a website called Ebay Typos.

Go to Ebay Typos and just put in the item you are looking for on ebay, and typos.cc will produce all the typos available on ebay, along with a list of all misspelled items currently available for sale. Willy says 10-4 and WOW

Willy says do you know what this means? You will probably find things for sale that only a few people are seeing. What a way to save money on ebay, find desired items no one else can find. Simply because people are misspelling their descriptions. That is what Ebay Typos is all about.

Willy says that this can make you money other ways too. Just think by going to Ebay Typos and checking typing in the names of things that you are going to sell on ebay. You can make sure that you don't misspell or make typos on any of your words. This way Ebay Typos has kept you from being a victiom of selling too cheap on ebay because nobody can find your items.

Willy says thank you Ebay Typos for allowing me to tell the world about this site.

There is no compensation being paid for this promotion.

Thank you President Bush!

Last Thursday, President George W. Bush issued the following proclamation for Religious Freedom Day 2007 which was observed this Tuesday, January 16th: Willy says 10-4.

"On Religious Freedom Day, we commemorate the passage of the 1786 Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, authored by Thomas Jefferson, and we celebrate the First Amendment's protection of religious freedom.

Across the centuries, people have come to America seeking to worship the Almighty freely. Today, our citizens profess many different faiths, and we welcome every religion. Yet people in many countries live without the freedom to worship as they choose and some face persecution for their beliefs. My Administration is working with our friends and allies around the globe to advance common values and spread the blessings of liberty to every corner of the world. Freedom is a gift from the Almighty, written in the heart and soul of every man, woman, and child, and we must continue to promote the importance of religious freedom at home and abroad.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim January 16, 2007, as Religious Freedom Day. I call on Americans to reflect on the great blessing of religious liberty, endeavor to preserve this freedom for future generations, and commemorate this day with the appropriate events and activities in their schools, places of worship, neighborhoods, and homes.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this eleventh day of January, in the year of our Lord two thousand seven, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-first.

Life is Supposed to Be Fun

I took on this blogger identity of Hillbilly-Willy because I moved from a place in Texas where life seemed to be fast paced and hectic to a place in the Hill Country of Arkansas where there seemed to be many people with a different lifestyle.

There were things that seemed to be unique to what I called the Hillbilly lifestyle (call it what you will). Those things were:

  • You move at a slower pace - move out of my way Willy - I got to get somewhere was not something that you heard often - after you get off of the interstate.
  • You talk more about fishing & hunting - Did you go fishing yesterday? Did you see that big buck that LeRoys kid killed over in the holler.
  • Family seems to be more important - is that yo're sister Willy - Yea! She ain't much of a wife though (just a joke)
  • Cars and racing are a way of life- Willy-did ya see that Nascar race yesterday? Yea - but I still miss ole number 3 being on the track. You think your 43 Willis Jeep can beat my 51 Ford Pickup? Maybe - but I got the engine hanging in the tree in the front yard - I'll get er back in next week and we'll try.
  • Your home is definetly your castle- Willy- you got a long neck beer with you? Yea -just a minute - let me go into the double wide and see if it has brewed yet.
  • You grow your substance - Willy- you got anything growing in your garden - Yea- but it aint ready to smoke yet- Let me show you - Be sure and step around that smelly stuff cooking there - it aint ready yet either. Hope it dont blow up my house.

All kidding a side. The above is a lot what people think. However, most of us get so caught up in our busy lifestyle that all we do is go to work - go home - and do it all over again tomorrow. Maybe we need to slow down and fish a little more. Go hunting in the spring and be more concerned about being in the wild than getting the wild things that we think we have to own.

Maybe there are things more important than a new car - a large house - a nice watch. Hang on Willy - maybe we need to slow down a little and make life more fun.

Thats all for now.

Fuel Economy - Lets Talk Hillbilly

It gives you great opportunity to learn and discuss things such as increasing your fuel economy and getting more for your dollar at the gas pump. At www.gassavers.org you can see discuss your gas mileage on your particular vehicle and get info and comments from others who might be driving a vehicle like yours.

By visiting www.gassavers.org you can be in the know on ground breaking news that might help you increase your fuel economy. Improved gas mileage means less stops at the pump and more money in your pocket. I cant imagine why anyone would not want to visit www.gassavers.org as soon as possible.

Drunken Delivery of the Mail!

Willy says he ain't never heard of such a thing. Why would a postman want to drink and deliver the mail. Must be stopping and reading the mail. Or maybe he thought it might help him feel better about delivering all of those requests for credit cards. Any way - check out this story on MSNBC. It is titled "Sometimes, the postman doesn’t ring at all"

Boise, Idaho - Think I'll Move There

Have you looked at Boise real estate Lately? Boise, is the place to be. Willy says this would be a good place to be if you had to leave the hills of Arkansas.

Boise says it is a delightful area with traditional and non-traditional sights and attractions. It calls itself the City of Trees. It boasts of fancy museums and wonderful parks. It even has a river flowing through the heart of the city. Among the many sites are the Basque Museum and Cultural Center, Morrison-Knudsen Nature Center, Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial, Idaho Black History Museum and the World Center for Birds of Prey(does that mean eagles?). Southwest Idaho’s easily accessible outdoors would make this a great place to call home. This must be why many people are moving there. Or could it be because they are the home of the Fiesta Bowl Champions. Or could it be to enjoy the nearby mountains, desert sand dunes, canyons and whitewater rafting rivers. Boise is the perfect city for a memorable visit.

And the best thing to do first is visit the Boise real estate site by clicking here. They can lead you to the house that could become your home. May be hard to beat the shack in the hill country but boy it would sure be great to be there and take in the night life.

Or again if all else fails, you can go to the Parks and Recreation website and see what there is to do recreation wise in Boise. And then after a long day outdooors, enjoying the great life that is in the wonderful Boise, Idaho area you can go back home to the house provided by the fact that one of the first things that you did when thinking of moving to Boise was to talk to the right people about Boise real estate . For the best in home buying guides click here and visit the people at Boise real estate now!

It will be the start of your new life in a wonderful place.

Take it from Willy.

Weather Bulletin - Epic Snow Storm In Colorado

Willie says this guy was making sense until he made that crack about people taking care of themselves better up north of the Mason Dixon Line. Well - Heck that makes me mad. Can't spend long writing about it though - got to go to the mail box to pick up my welfare Check. 10-4 Willy


Denver Post:

This text is from a county emergency manager out in he central part of Colorado after last
weeks snowstorm.

Up here, in the Northern Plains, we just recovered from a Historic event--- may I even say
a "Weather Event" of "Biblical Proportions" -- with a historic blizzard of up to 44" inches of snow and winds to 90 MPH that broke trees in half, knocked down utility poles, stranded hundreds of motorists in lethal snow banks, closed ALL roads, isolated scores of communities and cut power to 10's of thousands.

FYI: George Bush did not come.
FEMA did nothing.
No one howled for the government. No one blamed the government. No one even uttered an expletive on TV .

Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton did not visit. Our Mayor did not blame Bush or anyone else. Our Governor did not blame Bush or anyone else, either.

CNN, ABC, CBS, FOX or NBC did not visit - or report on this category 5 snowstorm. Nobody
demanded $2,000 debit cards. No one asked for a FEMA Trailer House. No one looted. Nobody - I mean Nobody demanded the government do something.

Nobody expected the government to do anything, either. No Larry King, No Bill O'Rielly, No Oprah, No Chris Mathews and No Geraldo Rivera. No Shaun Penn, No Barbara Striesand, No
Hollywood types to be found.

Nope, we just melted the snow for water. Sent out caravans of SUV's to pluck people out of snow engulfed cars. The truck drivers pulled people out of snow banks and didn't ask for a penny. Local restaurants made food and the police and fire departments delivered it to the
snowbound families.

Families took in the stranded people - total strangers. We fired up wood stoves, broke out coal oil lanterns or Coleman lanterns. We put on extra layers of clothes because up here it is "Work or Die".

We did not wait for some affirmative action government to get us out of a mess created by
being immobilized by a welfare program that trades votes for 'sittin at home' checks.

Even though a Category "5" blizzard of this scale has never fallen this early, we know it
can happen and how to deal with it ourselves.

"In my many travels, I have n oticed that once one gets north of about 48 degrees North Latitude, 90% of the world's social problems evaporate."

It does seem that way, at least to me.

I hope this gets passed on.

Maybe SOME people will get the message.

The world does Not owe you a living.

Pastor & the Donkey - Rated PG

The pastor entered his donkey in a race and it won, The pastor was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in the race again, and It won again. The local paper read: PASTOR'S ASS OUT FRONT

The Bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the pastor not to enter the donkey in another race. The next day, the local paper headline read: BISHOP SCRATCHES PASTOR'S ASS.

This was too much for the bishop, so he ordered the pastor to get rid of the donkey. The pastor decided to give it to a nun in a nearby convent. The local paper, hearing of the news, posted the following headline the next day: NUN HAS BEST ASS IN TOWN.

The bishop fainted. He informed the nun that she would have to get Rid of the donkey, so she sold it to a farmer for $10.The next day the paper read: NUN SELLS ASS FOR $10

This was too much for the bishop, so he ordered the nun to buy back the donkey and lead it to the plains where it could run wild. The next day the headlines read: NUN ANNOUNCES HER ASS IS WILD AND FREE

The bishop was buried the next day.

The moral of the story is: Being concerned about public opinion can bring you much grief and misery...and even shorten your life. So be yourself and enjoy life.

Stop worrying about everyone else's ass and you'll be a lot happier and live longer!
That is what this Blog is about. Be Happy - Life is too short. 10-4 Willy

Hillbilly Pork Loin

Cooked a great Pork Loin over the weekend.


One whole boneless pork loin (approximately 8 lbs)


If using charcoal briquettes arrange two piles, one on each side of grill

If using a gas grill with three elements only use the two outside elements

If you only have two elements like most of us you will need to put foil in the middle of grill to keep from burning the outside of the pork loin during grilling. Using this style I would recommend turning the loin frequently.

Using any of these grilling methods you will need to keep the heat low.
Rub the entire pork loin with rub as shown below. Place pork loin on grill in center (on foil if using two burner gas grill)

Grill for twenty minutes per pound

At fifteen minutes per pound check grilled pork loin in three places with Meat Thermometer. Close to each end and in the middle.

It is done when it reaches 160 degrees (Its ok after 150 degrees and better moisture)

It is well done at 170 degrees for those of you who are squeamish about pork

After reaching desired temperature turn grill as low as you can (with charcoal grills-shut all your air sources)

Coat entire grilled pork loin with Barbecue Sauce, grill five more minutes

Let grilled loin rest about ten minutes before slicing (I would still recommend a board with a trough as juices will still flow and can make quite a mess)


Rub Ingredients

4 tablespoons brown sugar
3 teaspoon yellow prepared mustard
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons dried cumin
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 teaspoon rubbed sage
1 teaspoon dried thyme

Place the brown sugar and mustard in a small bowl. Combine with the back of a spoon. Add the remaining dry ingredients and combine well. Pat off excess moisture from the pork with a paper towel. Rub the dry ingredients all over the surface. (The brown sugar with clump at first, but will eventually spread as the pork sets.) Place in a baking dish and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. Check occasionally to spread the rub more evenly.
