Merchant Account Providers for Willy

Lets assume that Willy needs to get an online presence for a great business idea as long as supporting his brick and mortar business.  What is Willy to do about trying to get people’s money from the customers pocket into Willy’s cash register with as little an effort as possible.  Well, Willy recently went online to research that idea and found that the best way to get a merchant account set up with the greatest of ease is to go to Merchant Account Providers.
Yes, Willy checked out their business online and found that they can provide all of the necessary items that is needed to get this type of business going right with all of the right features.  One of the things that Willy was most concerned about was getting set up with an ach merchant account that would allow Willy to have transfer ability from the customers bank account to Willy’s merchant account.  Well, in the research done on Merchant Account Providers, Willy found that they have the tools to get this done with very little angst.  This is important to most online and many standard businesses. 
Well, as you can see in this great research, there are companies that can make the setting up of a new merchant account a lot easier than it used to be.  So if this is the type of help you are needing, you now know how to get what you need.
Willy’s thoughts for now.  Pretty amazing research by Willy isn’t it?

Willy confused about America's Money Problems.

Willy struggles with the knowledge that Willy has and with the things that Willy hears but doesn't understand about what America does with its money. The deficit in America today is at a record $1.42 trillion dollars. That makes Willy and Willy's children and grand children and great grandchildren all in debt. How can we get over that.

With that great deficit in mind, why oh why do we have headlines like this that makes Willy's Head Spin. 

U.S. Aid to Egypt Totals $28 Billion in Three Decades

Willy is not sure how the math works because Willyis not sure how many zeros to put in each of those big numbers.   But if you take the $1.42 billion and divided that by $28 billion it appears that if we stopped spending the aid to Egypt that in just a few years the deficit would go away.

And that is just Egypt.  We do this to hundreds of countries that do not need it and who do not like America.  Fix that Mr. President. 

Maybe should name his dog Egypt and get some of the money sent to Willy.

Willy had a Dream!

No Willy's dream was not like Martin Luther King.  Willy's dream was strange.  Willy cannot figure out why this dream came up.  However, let Willy give those that are not familar with a couple of news stories a quick background.

Around the end of the year there were two stories that were big here in the Arkansas area.  The first was a story where thousands of blackbirds were found dead over a certain area with no real reason obvious.  Well, after several weeks of studies by the experts and many theory's by end of the world prognosticators,  the final answer by the experts was blunt force trauma.  Yes, they said that possibly fireworks from year end celebrations scared the birds and they ran into something and it killed them.    Wow, sounds like a good answer to Willy.

The next story was at about the same time.  Along the Arkansas River thousand of fish were found dead on the banks.  No explanation has been given yet for this one.

Willy's dream.........short and sweet.  In the dream the fish began flying up in the air.  The birds ran into the fish.  The fish crashed to the ground along the river.  The birds flew in a dizzy pattern for a few miles when the blunt force trauma from hitting the fish overcame them and they all fell dead over a 5 mile area.

Sounds reasonable to Willy --- Why does a great dream like that come about.  Maybe Willy is a little crazy.

Thursday, January 27, 2011–Willy gets Dirty in Austin

Willy is originally from Texas and Willy knows lots of folks from the Central Texas Area.  Willy talks of Central Texas as being around Austin.  Well, many of these folks that Willy knows are dirty folks.  These dirty folks are always in need of some carpet cleaning.  Well, that is where Willy tells them about what they can find on the internet from Carpet Cleaning Services in Austin.

The thing that Willy has to tell his friends in Marble Falls is that Carpet Cleaning Marble Falls is something that this company will do.  Yes, they will do that and they will make Carpet Cleaning Westlake and Carpet Cleaning Round Rock easy as pie.  What Willy is saying is that this is a good company and it can get it done just about anywhere in the area.

Do you get the drift.  Willy says that all of his friends in the Austin area can get the carpet cleaning done in a quick, timely, cost efficient manner.  Willy wants to know if you are in that area.  If so you know the drill.

Texas Declares War on the USA

Hillbilly Willy is a misplaced Texan for about 20 years in Arkansas.  Willy ran across this little story and believes it to be true.

President Barack Obama was in the Oval Office when his telephone rang. 
"Hello, President Obama" a heavily accented southern voice said. "This is Archie, down here at Joes Crab Shack, Houston Texas , I am callin' to tell ya'll that we are officially declaring war on ya!" 

"Well Archie," Barack replied, "This is indeed important news!   
How big is your army?"
"Right now," said Archie, after a moments calculation "there is myself, my cousin Harold, my next-door-neighbor Randy, and the whole dart team from Hooters. That makes eight!" 

Barack paused. "I must tell you Archie that I have one million men in my army waiting to move on my command."
"Wow," said Archie. "I'll have ta call ya back!"
Sure enough, the next day, Archie called again.
"Mr Obama, the war is still on! We have managed to acquire some infantry equipment!"
"And what equipment would that be Archie?" Barack asked. 

"Well sir, we have two combines, a bulldozer, and Harry's farm tractor.
President Obama sighed. "I must tell you Archie, that I have 16,000 tanks and 14,000 armored personnel carriers. Also I've increased my army to one and a half million since we last spoke."
"Lord above", said Archie, "I'll be getting back to ya." 

Sure enough, Archie rang again the next day. "President Obama, the war is still on! We have managed to git ourselves airborne! We up an' modified Harold's ultra-light with a couple of shotguns in the cockpit, and four  boys from the Legion have joined us as well!"
Barack was silent for a minute then cleared his throat. "I must tell you Archie that I have 10,000 bombers and 20,000 fighter planes.  My military complex is surrounded by laser-guided, surface-to-air missile sites. And since we last spoke, I've increased my army to TWO MILLION!"
"Oh Lord," said Archie, "I'll have to call you back."  
Sure enough, Archie called again the next day. "President Obama! I am sorry to have to tell you that we have had to call off this here war."
"I'm sorry to hear that" said Barack. "Why the sudden change of heart?"   

Well, sir," said Archie, "we've all sat ourselves down and had a long chat over a few beers, and come to realize that there's just no way we can feed two million prisoners.."

Willy’s Locker

Lockers is Willy’s topic today.  Did you have a locker where you kept your books in high school.  Was it near this school locker where you leaned against the wall and talked to that best girl friend.  Back in Willy’s day the school had old wood lockers and somewhere there is still that locker that has Willy’s name carved in the back of the door.

Well, there was also that old gym locker that Willy used to keep his sticky gym socks in.  There wasn’t any courting going on near that locker.  The cheerleaders even sneaked into the gym one time to decorate the lockers for a big football game and came out disgusted.  They said those gym lockers were the worst they had ever seen.  You get the idea of this post.  It is all about lockers.

If you need lockers for your company, school, business or even your home you know, that as Willy has said before, you can find everything online.  Where do you find lockers for sale on this internet thing?  Well Willy would mouse on over to

Where is the Beef- Taco Bell

Willy likes Taco Bell.  It tastes pretty good and it is pretty cheap.  But where is the Beef.

Story comes out today that Taco Bell advertises about beefy tacos etc and that their stuff is only 35% beef and the rest is filling.  Wonder what that filling is. 

What happened to the Taco Bell Dog that used to advertise?   Just saying!

So what is it that Willy is eating?  Also, how good would it taste if it was really all beef?  

Anybody for a big beefy taco?

Health News at Yahoo Health.

Willy is extremely interested in heart disease. Many of willy’s family member have had heart issues or at least some form of cardiac disease symptoms . That is why Willy spends a great deal of time and research into cardiac disease on the internet and from any other sources that are available.

It was in this research that Willy found great health news on Yahoo Health website. It was on that site that Willy found some excellent information that spoke to many of the issues that have been plaguing me about the different heart problems that have been chronic in the family.  This site answered questions about such things as congestive heart failure, heart murmurs, heart valve disorders, coronary heart disease and just plain heart attack.  This site helped show what each of these were, the symptoms and the issues with these that could help you avoid each of these. 

So, if you have heart disease in your family and need great information then simply look to Yahoo Health and get the heart news that you need to answer your questions.  There is enough information there to ease your mind and educate you to heart disease.

Moonshine and Apple Pie.

Them Ozark hills in Arkansas are known over the years for Moonshine.  Willy's old pa even says that when he lived in the Ozarks in Missouri that he even distilled a little moonshine occasionally.   Now they are saying that it is legal to sell Moonshine.  Oh, it has to pass certain tests and be distilled properly but it is still moonshine.

Well, Willy has never really had the opportunity to taste Moonshine.  You see Willy is not really much of an alcohol drinker.  But on a rare occasion Willy will have a glass of wine or a beer.  Well, last week Willy was asked to taste a concoction that a person had in his refrigerator.  Willy tried it out. 

This was very smooth and tasted like a smooth apple cider.  Willy found out that what he tasted was a mixture called Apple Pie Moonshine.  Willy thought it was really good.  The other person giving the sample agreed that it was very smooth.  They stated that if you drank about one glass of the stuff, it would go down smooth but it would knock you on your tail.

Willy believes that is true.  Wow it was good.

Zoom with Willy and

Zoom! Zoom! Willy is driving fast and looking cool on his new motorcycle.  Zoom! Zoom!  Willy thinks that Motorcycle Helmets with a classy look are important for Willy to look cool and drive his motorcycle fast.  Do you think Willy is looking good or do you think Willy might need something else to look cool and drive fast?

Maybe Willy needs to go to and replace his regular helmet with one of those great HJC Helmets.  They are great helmets, look good and keep Willy’s head safe.  Zoom!  Zoom!   Willy is driving fast again and is back to looking cool in the new helmet.  Sounds great doesn’t it.  You want to drive fast with Willy?  If you do you may want to get you a cool helmet also. 

Wait a minute!  Is that the alarm going off?  Willy has to wake up and get off of his dream motorcycle and put away his cool dream helmet.  Where is that VW bug that Willy drives to work.  Putt!  Putt!

Willy needs an IPHONE with the right Apps.

Willy has been thinking that he needs to upgrade to an IPHONE.  However, Willy needs to study and make sure that they have the apps that would make Willy's life easier.  Here are some of the apps that Willy thinks he needs:

  • App that drives Willy to work
  • Better yet - an app that does Willy's work for him while Willy fishes
  • App that cooks Willy's meals and cleans Willy's house
  • App that mows Willy's lawn in the summer.
Wait a minute - Willy has an app for that right now.  Mrs Willy.  - Wait a minute she said she had an app for that and it was called Willy.

Guess Willy better get back to cleaning house and washing dishes.  - Willy is just kidding.

Buffalo, NY For The Holidays

Willy has a guest host today that says they went to New York for the Holiday.  That sounds like fun to Willy.  See what they have to say.  10-4 Willy

Guest written by our friend Gladys Fuentes

This year we traveled to see my dad for the holidays. It was the first time we have done this, we live out west and he lives back east outside of Buffalo, NY. Luckily for us the weather was not terrible, although it did snow a few of the days that we were there. My kids were in heaven with the snow and they had a blast sledding.

My kids built a snowman complete with scarf and carrot nose. We went skiing for the first time and only fell a few times. It was great to spend this season with my father and he spoiled my kids far too much. He let them pick out whatever they wanted at the toy store. My 3 year old was so cute, he just kept throwing things into the basket and even though he already has a Buzz Lightyear toy, my dad bought him another one along with a new car. My son was so happy that he did not have to choose between the two toys. My daughter had trouble picking what she wanted, she finally settled on a video game.

We ate a delicious dinner; my dad can really cook for company. We set our home security alarm from when we left to ensure the safety of our home. When we arrived back home all was well.

Auburn Wins Championship

What was thought to be a high scoring game actually ended up a defensive game.  Auburn finally pulled away in last 10 seconds with a field goal.

It is great to see the SEC win this game.  This is a team that was one of only three teams to beat Willy's Razorbacks this year.  Also, starting the fourth quarter of our game the Hogs were ahead.  Then we blew it.

Go Hogs.

Finance Globe–Find the right Card.

Willy is not big on the use of credit cards but Willy does use one that he pays off every month.  Therefore, Willy believes that it is important to know what the best credit cards are for the purpose that meets your lifestyle.   These reasons are why Willy likes to look for sites that can give him great credit card reviews so that the best cards are easily found.

Willy then finds it interesting that the card that he uses is one of the chase credit cards.  It is one that gives Willy points each month toward free airline travel.  Another great card that can be found from review sites is one of the citi credit cards.   Willy used to have one of these cards before he eliminated down to just one.

So, if you are looking for a good credit card then you might want to find the reviews with popular credit cards and find out what is right for you.

Willy likes Smoked Beer Can Chicken


5 T Paprika                                                                            

1 T Chipotle Chile Powder                                                     

1 T Ancho Chile Powder                                                        

1 T Mexican Style Chile Powder                                             

2 T Sea Salt or Kosher Salt

2 T Sugar

1 T Garlic Powder

1 T Onion Powder

2 T Black Pepper (preferably freshly ground)

1 t Cayenne Pepper

Injectable Marinade:

12 oz Beer

¼ c Vegetable Oil

¼ c Cider Vinegar

1 T BBQ rub

Additional Ingredients:

2 - 12 oz. Beer Cans

2 - 3 ½ pound whole chickens

½ medium onion, chopped

¼ c cider vinegar

4 garlic cloves, chopped


1. The night before you plan to barbecue, combine the rub ingredients in a small bowl and mix.  In another bowl, combine the injection liquid and mix.  Remove the organs from the chicken cavity and clean the chickens.  Soak wood chips overnight to use on the smoker (we used hickory wood chips).

2. With a kitchen syringe, inject the chickens with the marinade.  Use about a ½ cup in each breast, and ¼ c in the thighs.  With the remaining marinade, pour over the chickens and massage over and under the skin, being careful not to tare the skin.  Season generously with the rub all over both chickens, on top of and underneath the skin.  Place the chickens in a plastic bag or on a platter covered with plastic wrap, and refrigerate over night.

3.  Prepare your smoker for cooking at 200 degrees F to 220 degrees F.

4. Remove the chickens from the refrigerator and let sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes.  Open 2 beer cans and drain half the liquid from each.  Add to each beer can 2 garlic cloves, half the onion, half the vinegar and one table spoon of the BBQ rub.  The beer will steam the chicken on the inside, the seasonings add flavor to the inside of the chicken.

5.  You may need an assistant for this part.  Carefully place each chicken on top of the beer can, using the two legs and the beer can to balance the bird upright.  Transfer the birds sitting on the beer cans to your smoker with the wood chips placed on the fire to provide the smoke.  Smoke your chickens for 3 ½ to 4 ½ hours.  The chickens are done when the breast meat reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F and the thigh meat registers at about 175 degrees F.  Let the chickens rest for about 10 minutes when done, the meat will continue to cook another 5 to 10 degrees F.

6.  When serving, you will want to remove the skin.  Because of all the moisture added to the birds, the skin does not get crispy; all the flavor soaks down into the meat.  Serve by itself or as a pulled chicken sandwich with your favorite barbecue sauce.

Another Loretta Young Christmas Film

10-4 Willy


Guest post written by my buddy Brian Workman

The wonderful Loretta Young came out of retirement in 1986 to make a holiday TV film called Christmas Eve. This very simple film quickly became my favorite Christmas movie ever, and that says a lot considering all the outstanding and well known holiday films that are out there.

Young, however, was a highly talented actress who cared deeply about her roles. It was a big deal when she agreed to do this picture. Just knowing she was in it told me it was going to be a very classy movie, and it was. When I saw it again on satellite TV from the other night, I was simply delighted.

I love stories that show that family is more important than anything, and I adore those where simple faith is at the center. In Christmas Eve, Young plays Amanda Kingsley, who has a last wish, that of seeing her grandchildren once again.

The kids are grown, but they've all left home and are estranged from their father, Andrew Kingsley, Amanda's brother. That role is played by Arthur Hill, another fine actor.

Amanda hires a private detective to track down the three children, and that's where the faith comes in. No one believes he'll find them and even if he did, they don't believe the kids will show up.

There's much more to the story. It's worth watching.

Who Does Willy Root for.

Willy has a masters degree from Texas A&M. Make up your own jokes. Willy is watching the Cotton Bowl with A&M and LSU. Willy likes LSU because it is in the SEC.

So - who does Willy root for.

You could guess LSU - but you would be wrong.


Pouring some thought into the 17000 Sugar Bowl

Willy using one of those Brilliant guest posts today.  
Thanks for the article from Glenda Hanson

We haven't been to New Orleans since the Red Cross volunteering we did about three months after Katrina. Since then I think the city has recovered some and I'm glad for it. We decided that since Ohio State was playing in this year's Sugar Bowl, we would made the drive over from Burmingham and stay with some friends we made during our volunteer work. Tom thinks that we should set the home alarm (online offer ADT) before heading out and I am in agreement. Going to a college football bowl game every season has been one of our favorite Winter pastimes. The 17000 Sugar Bowl featuring Ohio State and Arkansas will be the only one we catch this year but we'll be able to see our favorite college player, Terrelle Pryor. Tom has been following the news on him since he was a high school senior and has always raved that he could have gone pro right out of high school. I tend to disagree because the NFL defensive lineman are enormous! We think he'll have a fine career and winning another college football bowl game will add to his pedigree. The people we are staying the whole week are fine family who have a gorgeous four bedroom, plantation style house. They were kind enough to host us for the whole month that we did our volunteer work.

Willy's Last Statement of the Day.

When will retirement come to Willy.  Some days Willy is just tired of getting up and doing the same old thing.  How great it would be to wake up and say " I think I will go fishing today"  or maybe not.  Maybe I will mow the grass - or maybe not.  Or maybe I will just hang out here on the couch today and be a vegetable with a remote control.

Well, it is all about health care and debts.  If it wasn't for those two, Willy would retire tomorrow.

Willy did try to win the Mega Million last week but all willy did is spend $10 and get nothing.  

Lets see - What will Willy do tomorrow - GO TO WORK!

That Advertising Agency

Willy likes what That Advertising Agency has to say about Old media being New Media.  They are an agency that started as an internet Advertising agency and so therefore everything that they have ever done is internet and web related.  They are not a company that had done Advertising without the web and simply transitioned.  Therefore,  their old way of doing things is already the new way of doing things.  Makes sense doesn’t it. 
Well, they claim that they have one mission and that is to make the client happy.  They get a good start on this by saying that they want you to use most of your spending for advertising and not for the advertising company.  That would make me happy right off the start.  How about you?  Well, another thing that they mention is that at the end of the day what really counts is what is your return on your investment.  Did you get the best bang for your buck that you could get?  Did you get results?   Wow, they are talking about the things that are important to me.  Yes, what a way to get my attention.  When you talk about spending my money wisely, spending more for advertising than for the advertising company and then getting great results for the money, then you have gotten my attention.
Well, when you think that you have the best of the best up to now, they then mention that they have some of the brightest and smartest in the advertising industry ready to work for you and get the results that they have been talking about.  How can you beat all of this.  The way that you get all of this is to go to That Advertising Agency and get on board to get what they promise.
That is my thoughts for now.
