Willy wishes everyone a happy New Year. Willy is doing this early in case Willy falls asleep before midnight.
Yes, if you will please keep the noise down around midnight. I will probably be in bed a sleep.
It is amazing how we change over the years. We used to be looking for a place to cheer in the New Year and now we are looking for ways to dodge any New Years obligations - give me my easy chair and the remote till 10 pm. Then give me my bed.

Rumor mentions Petrino to Florida with Urban Meyer out! Willy thinks this is a far fetch. Willy believes that Petrino and Mallet will be back to Arkansas next year.
Will they win the West - Will they win the SEC - Will they win a National Championship.

Willy wishes he had the time and the money to get tickets to Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight
Yep! Willy is a redneck and Willy loves a good boxing match. Yep- Willy would love to go to the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and watch these great fighters get it on. Mayweather believes that no body can beat him. Pacquiao may be the one that can do it.
What do you think? Do you want tickets to see this fight. Willy believes that this will be a fight to the finish. Willy believes that the last round may be the deciding round. Willy wants to go!
Willy thinks that if he were there that maybe the great Mayweather might just win as he thinks he will. Willy just thinks that this is the fight to see.
Everyone should get out and try to see this fight. All Willy can say that since Willy can't be at the fight then Willy will surely watch the fight on any means available. Still there would be nothing like being there in person.
This is what Willy thinks about this fight. What do you think.

Well, Christmas is over at the Willy household. The tree is down, the ornaments are laying ready to be put away. Willy says- What is next?
New year is coming - the old goes away. Maybe Willy will make that ultimate New Years resolution. Maybe will just decide to jump in and make the ultimate sacrifice.
Yes- Willy may decide to try to go on a diet and loose weight.

Willy went hunting for pheasant last week. Willy had a great time but all Willy done was hunt.
Willy walked 12 miles one day through thick brush and tough walking. Willy was hunting you know.
Willy walked about 5 miles the previous day through brush and thick stuff. Willy was tired and slept well. Willy had a good time because Willy was hunting.
The only thing that would have made Willy's trip better would be if Willy was catching and not just hunting.
One bird brought home and Willy's hunting buddy got that one.
10-4 Hunting Willy.

Atomic Buffalo Turds (ABTs)
Here is another post I've been meaning to get up for a couple weeks. I posted about atomic buffalo turds one other time, but I didn't really give them their due. We had a pot-luck party a couple weeks ago and I offered to make the appetizer. ABTs were the obvious choice.Start out by cutting the stem off and halving the peppers. Then I like to use a grapefruit spoon to scoop out the membranes and seeds. Just use the teeth of the spoon to cut through the pulp up near the stem. Then simply rake it down the length of the pepper to scoop everything out. If you want them to be hotter, take out the white pulp and seeds, but leave the thin membrane on the inside wall of the pepper. Give em a good rinse now to get extra seeds, pulp, etc. off of them.
Coring out the peppers is probably the biggest pain of doing ABTs. Once that is done I lay out the peppers and Mrs. Hog helps out with the rest of the process. An extra set of hands make it go a lot quicker.Make sure your cream cheese is soft before you try to pipe it into the pepper. I let mine sit out for a while, but you can microwave it if you have to. Be careful, though....you want it soft, not melted. I like to add some cayenne pepper to the cream cheese. Just add the pepper to taste in a bowl and use the back of spoon or a spatula to mix it in. Mrs. Hog bakes cakes, so I use one of those fancy piping bags for the cream cheese. If you don't have any of those, just cut the corner out of a zip-lock bag
Then simply add the lil' smokies on top of the cream cheese. Give them a little push and they'll kind of stick into the cream cheese.Use a half of a strip of bacon to wrap around the pepper. When I just do a few of these I use toothpicks to secure the bacon, but when i do this many I use bamboo skewers. I put the skewers through the lil' smoky and not the pepper. It's enough to hold the whole thing together, but it's easier getting the ABT's on and off. It also makes it easier handling that many ABTs at once.Unfortunately, we were running late for the party and I didn't get pics of the cooking or the finished product. Luckily I had old pictures from a Christmas party last year in TX. One hundred turds pretty much fills up the Chargriller. As you can see, this was before I figured out the skewer thing. You can cook these at whatever temp you want. If I do them by themselves I cook them at 275ish for about an hour and a half. They're done when the bacon is done to your liking, which is crispy for me.These things are as beautiful as they are delicious!!It's important to note that this recipe is really just a sample. Use your imagination and come up with other stuff to do with these. You can change the cheese, the spices, the kinds of peppers, etc. One of the best ones that I've done was to mince up some pork butt really fine and mix it in with the cream cheese. I believe I left out the smoky on that one. Anyway, you can do anything with these and they'll turn out great.

Willy needs protection. Most rednecks do need protection because of who they are. But this is not the type of protection of concern today. Willy is talking today about protecting your home, family or business from outside intruders.
Yes, there are those folks that are outside that are wanting inside to get Willy's stuff. Willy does not think that this should happen. So what should you and Willy do to stop this intrusion? You should get protection from the best.
Who are the best in security alarm systems?
Well Gaylord Security specializes in the design, installation, service and monitoring of security and fire alarm systems. They are an authorized ADT dealer. They pledge to provide a system that will protect your home and business as well as it can be protected. What more could one ask?
Do you think this is something you need? Do you have a strong urge to protect your home or business in this time when crime seems to be on the increase?
Willy says this type of protection is something everyone should consider. Check it out what you need to know today about security alarm systems ! Willy did!

You are told that it will be historical if it passes. Yes- Pearl Harbor was historical. Yes - 9/11 was historical. - Yes, every war we have had is historical - but they were not all good for us.
Willy feels like he needs the President to assure Willy that he has read all 2000 pages of this health care reform before it passes.

Willy took the following picture at a local McDonalds this morning. Willy was wondering what sophisticated redneck was out at 7 am getting the limo to take them to Mcdonalds. You never know what you will find.

Check this idea out for Willy. What if Willy was a member of the universal life church? Then what could Willy do with this membership. Willy could perform marriages for his family and friends if Willy was ordained by this church.
The original online Universal Life Church says that they ordain people for free, mainly for the purpose of performing marriages for their family and friends. They say that some sites have popped up in the last few years that are threatening our authoritative position, and they are all using systems like this. They say that the can't afford to drop, so they are sticking around..
Wow, how would that sound for Willy to be in charge of mainly alternative weddings and give this group the freedom of religion that they want. What about really getting ordained online, becoming a minister online, and performing all of those duties that come with it.
Well, Willy is not to sure of all of this but Willy guesses if that is what they want to do - power to them.
Willy knows that there are some crazy things in this world. Is this one of them. You tell Willy what you think.

Willy wonders if Willy is in his right mind. Pheasant hunting is fun - but how much fun.
Fun enough to brave cold rain and high wind and getting wet and getting cold and ...........
Just take a look.

What can be more exciting than to have the presence of a great looking grandfather clocks in the entrance of your house or to have that one of those great unique mantel clocks sitting above the fireplace for all to see. Having grandfather clocks, or mantel clocks are great memories that the kids and grandkids will remember in years to come.
But the thing to have is something that looks great and has another uniqueness about it. That might be something like one of the great looking atomic clocks. How cool will that be for you grandkids someday to look back and see that great looking clock that made memories around your home and how it was so accurate and so great looking.
Yes, at http://www.1-800-4clocks.com you can find grreat Seth Thomas Atomic Clocks and Howard Miller Atomic Clocks. That is the type of clock that I want. These atomic clocks are sweeping the world. These Atomic Clocks provides great ccuracy for time clocks. Atomic Clocks, sometimes referred to as Radio Controlled Clocks, pick up the low frequency radio signals from the Cesium Atomic Clock Time Keeper in Fort Collins, Colorado. This radio signal covers the entire USA and the Atomic Clock time is set by the National Institute of Radio Standards. This atomick Clock will even adjust automatically for daylight savings time.
So, you tell me. How much fun will it be to take an atomic clock and tell the kids and grandkids about how cool it is and how it never needs to be set because there is that signal coming from somewhere that keeps it accurate to the utmost.
I want one of those Atomic Clocks. Check out all the other types of great clocks.
By the way I also found that this site has great information such as Interesting Facts About Time and Clocks
and a blog with interesting articles about things such as atomic grandfather clocks. How neat is that?

Willy wonders if anyone tuned in and heard what the president said last night. Pretty serious business.
Or was everyone tuned in to TMZ to find out if there was any more news on Tiger.
Willy believes this world has its priorities really messed up.
By the way - was there any more news on Tiger
