Willy just passed over the previous post to this one. Willy kept using the word Respectively when what Willy really meant was Respectfully.
Well, Mr. President - being the educated person that you are and for sure a follow of the Hillbilly Willy Blogosphere - you know what Willy meant.
Less Talk and more Action.

Willy has to say Respectively Mr. President - All Willy is hearing what Linus hears sometimes in the previous post.
Willy thinks you are saying the right things but again with all due respect -
THE STOCK MARKET WAS DOWN AGAIN TODAY AND WILLY LOST ABOUT $2,000.
This change is breaking Willy.

Willy has not been visiting the Possum Grit Road Kill bar and Cantina much since the elections were over. Willy had vowed after the elections that he would leave Obama alone unless as President he did something really bad and going down to the Cantina sometimes caused Willy to get riled up enough to say something he shouldn't.
Well, Willy decided to visit the Cantina and what did he find.
Juanita - the great little waitress - and philosopher. She says that she is still looking for that change that Willy promised her. She said that the only change so far that she has found is less of it in the cash register.
Billy Bob Jones - Plumber - Still looking for that new job. He was in unstopping the plumbing as his part time of four jobs trying to feed the little wife. He says that he used to unstop the John at one of the local car dealers - but they had to cut his service out along with the jet planes to get another $4 billion trillion from the government so they could secretly plan next years big Christmas party.
John Sammy Thompson - local stock broker to the Stars of the Cantina- He says that he is so impressed with how Wall Street has embraced Obama's new stimulus package that both of his customers stock portfolios now resemble something that Billy Bob Jones the Plumber just plunged out of the Cantina facilities.
Well, after that stimulating conversation it is time for Willy to go home and pay the bills or mash his finger in a door. Both are painful!
Yep, lets see - Willy as a responsible American has kept his mortgage current even when it is tough. - No help for that one - Should have missed a payment or two and maybe a bailout would be in order.
Yep Willy needs to pay GM on the debt on that car so they won't need all of the bailout money. They can cut it by about $100.
Yep, Willy needs to pay the natural gas bill - say it is going up. Guess that will help Willy's economic status.
Go away Willy - Shut up! Life is Better - Obama said it would be before the election.
By the Way did Juanita say that Obama was sending her nephew to Afganistan next week for a luxury tour. Couldn't be for anything else could it - he was going to pull troops out.
What Ever - Wonder if the diner has WIFI and if Willy could use a proxy server to logon at the diner

Guess Willy is going to have to get some younger thing to help him understand these social sites.
Twitter - everyone wants to be Willy's friend. Willy clicks on Follow and the next thing you know Willy has more friends than he has ever had. Most of these folks have no idea who Willy is and Willy sure don't know them. (been looking for Juanita that used to be at the diner. She left and Willy wonders where she went. Tweet - Tweet - Juanita where are you)
Willy got side tracked. - The next thing Willy knows his Twitter is filled with short comments from people that Willy don't know and don't care to know that they just ate supper. Help Willy with that one.
Facebook - Willy likes this one a little better - at least it is linking me to friends and family. No big deal Willy knows who they are any way.
Willy still has that same problem. Someone may write on your wall and you would like to write something back - but all your friends and family are watching. Its like passing a note in class but you get caught and have to read it out loud.
Then you are supposed to Poke someone. Well, I haven't been brave enough to try that one. Might get slapped.
But Willy is getting good each day at announcing to the world "Willy is proud to be on Facebook"
"Or Willy is up and on the computer" Willy even has one person that comments to Willy like he cares.
It all goes back to the post the other day.
Willy just don't know "WHY"

Willy finds it amazing how one little word can sometimes stimulate thought.
The word WHY was all that was said. Willy was thinking about the kind of day he had just finished when he wrote it.
Willy is trying to stay positive and everything seemed to be hitting Willy from everywhere. Willy just did not understand and asked WHY.
Responses can come from all directions depending on your thought pattern and your own attitude and maybe the kind of day each of you had at the time.
Power in just one word.

Sandee of Comedy Plus - nails Willy's travels again.
Yes, Sandee Willy is at Peach Springs. - More about Peach Springs.
Peach Springs (Hualapai: Hà:ktəkwí:va) is a census-designated place (CDP) in Mohave County, Arizona, United States. The population was 600 at the 2000 census. Peach Springs serves as the administrative headquarters of the Hualapai (meaning People of the Tall Pine) people, and is located on the Hualapai Reservation.
Just west the Grand Canyon Caverns on Route 66, the highway meanders into the lands of the Hualapai Indians, a reservation that encompasses more than a million acres, including 108 miles of the Colorado River and the Grand Canyon.
Peach Springs is about 12 miles west of Grand Canyon Caverns and is the tribal headquarters for the reservation.
The “People of the Tall Pine” have been occupying these lands for more than 1,400 years, where the west rim of the Grand Canyon and the river below, has long since provided food sources and medicinal needs to the tribe. It was from the Haulapai's west rim, that the earliest visitors accessed the wild Colorado River below.

Well, Valentines day is over and Willy is off to Cyber travel again.
Where will Willy go now. Continuing a previous theme Willy Stumbles into the deep of America and asks "how" for more that a million acres of Americas Ground and for 108 miles and many people - wait are those "tall pines"
Wow Willy thinks this is nice.
Wonder where Willy is at tonight. If you know - help Willy find his way home.

Willy believes that the world should explode with Love on Valentines Day!
Or is that our wallet exploding from buying over priced flowers, candy and cards.
Maybe we should all boycott flowers, candy and cards next year.
Maybe we could just give out hugs to those we love. Lots Cheaper and the affects last longer.
Hugs to all on this valentines day.

Willy broke down and joined one of these social sites.
Not sure why Willy did this since in most cases this stuff goes on in the evening and Willy is not real sociable.
Willy came out from behind his cloak and is signed up as his real self.
Signed up as Willy and no one new Willy except a few bloggers.
Now everyone that has ever known the real Willy wants to be his friend.
Not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing.

Willy thanks Sherry, Mind of a Mom, and Sandee of Comedy Plus for playing his silly game of "Where in America is Willy".
This Week Willy was in Chicago as which was indicated by the "el Train" statement.
Yes the year was 1926 not because that was the year the L train was begun or that there are 33 stops.
Clue "Twice - 33" stands for 66.
Yes, the famous Route 66.
This is considered the Mother Road of America. Route 66 was begun in Chicago in 1926 to link the east to the west. However, shortly after it was started hard times set in and it was not until 1933 that it resurfaced as a major project. Read More about the History of Route 66 below or go to the website to chase its history. ----------
The often romanticized Mother Road inspires in many of us a nostalgic bone which niggles at something buried deep within us. While some may see Route 66 as a link to our parents and grandparents, others perhaps feel the sense of freedom that the road provided to those early travelers. And then, for those of us that live continuously in the nostalgic past, the Mother Road is, but yet, the next adventure beyond the Santa Fe Trail. Whatever the reason, the Mother Road is an experience, a feeling, a perception, a taste of sight and sound, and a mystery that can only be resolved by driving the pavement itself.
The “super-highway,” as it was thought of in 1926, represented unprecedented freedom to travel across the American West. Spawned by the rapidly changing demands of America, entrepreneurs, Cyrus Avery of Tulsa, Oklahoma and John Woodruff of Springfield, Missouri conceived of the grand idea of linking Chicago to Los Angeles and began lobbying efforts to promote the new highway. While other East/West highways existed at the time, most followed a linear course, leaving out the rural communities, dependent upon transportation for farm products and other goods.
No doubt a daunting task for the pair, the federal government finally pledged to link small town U.S.A. with metropolitan capitals in the summer of 1926 and designated the road as 66. Unfortunately, shortly after work began on the Mother Road came the depression, halting progress on the new “Super-Highway.
However, in 1933, thousands of unemployed men were put back to work and road gangs paved the final stretches of the road. By 1938 the 2,300 mile highway was continuously paved from Chicago to Los Angeles.

Willy is not one that has endless resources of money, but has an endless need to blog. That is why Willy finds the need to advertise on blogs and participate in having blog advertising write-ups and links on his blog.
Willy also believes that there are many other bloggers out in cyberspace that are the same way. That is why Willy and many others are pleased to have the many sites that provide the opportunity to promote their products through providing information on their blog.
Yes, blogs are the thing now and in the future and the ability for advertisers and bloggers to join hands and supply relative advertising is something that is very relevant. This is not only relevant now but is something that appears to be very much one of the future explosions in advertising.
That is where sites like PayingPost.com come in to play. Sites like this provide the opportunity to bring the blogger and the advertiser together and provide a means to transact the deal that gets the job done that is fair and equitable to all involved.
Another thing that they do is called PayingPost Direct. This where the advertiser makes contact directly with the blogger through a badge placed on the blogger site. The advertiser and blogger then negotiate the advertisement and the price directly. This gives direct power to make the best deal to both the blogger and the advertiser.
Well, what better deal than this can you ask. Yes, the newest frontier in advertising appears to be in the blog arena and what better way to confront this idea than with something such as PayingPost.

Mind of a Mom and Sherry are both on track with where Willy is. Yes Willy is in Chicago and the EL Train was the clue there.
The question that still eludes us is what year is Willy in. Willy's clues lead that direction and Sandee of Comedy Plus is getting warm on it but not there yet.
Here are the important clues on the year:
And where does that(what is that) go? It must be the beginning of something going somewhere.
Twice willy thought about 33 reasons that he could get from here to there on that (what is that), but never came up with a real conclusion where all of this might end.
Maybe something began in Chicago the year that Willy is in.
Get me back to today!

Willy is considering the merits of these next words that he writes. This has not had as much research as Willy would like to put into something but this sounds alright on the surface.
The thing that Willy is talking about is the idea that Seamless Compassion can help Americans get the help they need.
Sounds like a grand idea doesn't it. Well Willy believes it is a great ides.
You know how it is today. There are so many layoffs that we read about each day that it will almost scare you to death. "Am I next" is a question that goes through most peoples mind.
Yes there is a national recession in this world today and it is not fiction - it is reality. Our friends and neighbors all around us are ll beginning to have to worry about things such as feeding their kids and family and how to best protect each and everyone that they love. Many people who would have never thought about food stamps or unemployment lines are using the stamps and standing in line. It is a sad economy that we are in!
Yes and as these friends and family apply for and stand in the long lines for the food stamps and the unemployment they will probably find the the paperwork is very confusing and that decisions are always delayed for days and weeks. This then leads back to the fact that there are tough choices that have to be made when it comes to feeding and protecting our loved ones.
What can be done about it. That is where the idea presented at this website comes in to play. Their cause and idea is to make easier work of the application process for for these varied benefits.
What is good about that is that it isn't just the idea that it is helping families in need but the extended idea that is stimulating this nations economy.
Helping families and helping the economy is a great idea that will work with this knowledge gained from this website.
Yes stimulating the economy through the Food Stamp Program - a program referred to as SNAP can easily be underestimated. Many people wonder it helps the economy at all. Well the facts are that each $1 if food stamps that is spent generates $1.73 in local economic activity. " Moody’s Economy.com, Mark Zandi, Economist
Again that is where there is the fortunate opportunity of having a solution such as Seamless Compassion. They understand that there is a challenge in America and they are there to help.
This group is made up of many non-profit organizations and community-based organizations. Seamless Compassion can help those in need apply for the benefits programs that they deserve and can do this through outreach programs that are efficient. These can be done through web-based solutions that are driven and aided by an interview process.
Yes, this interview process is much like one that you might have in many of the poplular computer based income tax programs. This interview allows the benefit seeker who might be familiar with that process to be more at eased and to go through the sign up with more ease.
This process can be completed simply by having an internet access and filling out the interview process prior to going to their county office. When they arrive they can have the information available and the pain of the process is eased.
This then helps maintain the self respect through maintaining the ability to feed their children.
What a great idea.
If you have a need or would like to find out more about Seamless Compassion, go visit Seamless Compassion dot com.
All that Willy can say is that each and everyone of us have the God Given responsibility to help others. Maybe each of us should look at this opportunity and see what we think about it.
It it is something that you think is ok then you should support and think about what they say. If you are not sure about it, do some more reseearch and find out for yourself.
Willy is checking it out and would encourage others to do so also.

Willy is Cyber traveling and Time traveling this week. Help Willy figure out where to begin on this journey. Help Willy understand what year it is and where he is at.
Willy is confused - Willy knows he is in America but El Train sounds like Spanish.
And where does that go? It must be the beginning of something going somewhere.
Twice willy thought about 33 reasons that he could get from here to there on that, but never came up with a real conclusion where all of this might end.
Boy! Willy is confused. Someone help Willy find where he is at and what year this is.

Willy notices that his sidebar on Hillbilly Willyt loads very slowly most of the time. Is this just on Willy's computer or everyone else.
Willy hates going to someone's Blog that loads slowly. Willy wants his blog to load fast.
Can someone with real tech -nology tell Willy what to do to get his site to load faster.
Posted by Willy at 7:03 PM
Hillbilly Willy is a kid at heart. What do kids like to do more than anything these days? Yes, that is right. Kids like to play games. Well, through SocialSpark Willy found out about this awesome game site.
What is this awesome game site you ask Willy. Well, that site is MEGA Brands Kids Zone.
What is so great about it you ask. Well let Willy tell you what it has. It has MegaNext Virtual, NeoShifters, Resistance, Treasure of the Lord Pyrate and many more games.
Please don't tell anyone but Willy played a couple of these games and they are somewhat fantastic in graphics and active participation.
Sorry, Willy was sidetracked for a second.
Well, something else available is that there are videos on the games, wallpapers, pictures and contests.
Willy apologizes if he sounds a little excited. Willy child has grown up and left home but Willy is not totally grown up yet. Maybe you will want to come on over and check out this site.
Willy thinks it is pretty amazing. You might think so too!

Sandee of Comedy Plus nailed the clues and guessed that Willy was in Mountain View Arkansas.
The clues were:
- blue grass - lots of bluegrass music played in Mountain View Arkansas.
- Caroling - Caverns - caves. - At Christmas time there is caroling nightly in the Blanchard Springs Caverns - great vibrations and echoes.
- The courthouse square is famous for Bluegrass picking and grinning on the weekends in the spring and summer.
- Mountain View is home of the Ozark Folk Center - taking you back to the days of old.
Posted by Willy at 8:14 PM
Well Willy is still hanging out waiting for someone to find him. Willy has been a little more vague about his clues this time or else the clues are just terrible. Whatever - Willy needs to be found and move on.
Here is the next clue and the picture tells some:
Here at the County courthouse - Blue Grass is only a stone throw away.
Here are the previous clues with the important words highlighted.
- Willy is some place where Carols are sung. Where the carol sound will really ring and vibrate.
- Willy would rather be fishing on the River and if it is Christmas time the area and the river would be white.
- Hope he doesn't cave in and give it away
- Again the River is White and there is blue grass all around. Bet the view from the mountain is great.

Well, Willy made it one day without anyone guessing where he is at. Mind of a Mom must be sleeping.
Or maybe Sherry is not watching. Or maybe Willy's clues are terrible.
Willy is thinking it is Christmas and is caroling to his hearts content. Hope he doesn't cave in and give it away to easy.
Again the River is White and there is blue grass all around. Bet the view from the mountain is great.
Where is Willy.

Willy is some place where Carols are sung. Where the carol sound will really ring and vibrate.
Willy knows this is not Christmas but Willy would rather be fishing on the River and if it is Christmas time the area and the river would be white. Other times you might be singing about the grass being blue.
Where is Willy today except confused.
One place that Willy is not at today is a Sandels Resort . Not because Willy doesn't want to be but just because he is not.
10-4 Willy -
