Wal-Mart To The Rescue!

Thursday, April 3rd, 2008

A lot of people love to bash big box retailers in general and Wal-Mart in particular for being too-powerful, uncaring, corporate dictators who revel in doing as little good as possible and sqashing everyone in their path in their quest for world domination and incalculable profits.

We Were Hit By a Hurricane!

We went to check out our house yesterday. Although our house didn’t sustain any real damage, several of our neighbors did. I took some pictures and will be posting them in a little while. It is really sad to see just how many trees we lost. Our biggest tree in the backyard is gone. It […]

I didn’t realize that Micheal Taylor of TaylorTree and I are practically neighbors. Small world. Anyway, he has a really good post with pictures on Rita.
