Grab your incandescents while you can at this mega sale

He is selling the incandescents for $50 a case, or 42 cents a bulb. A case contains 120 bulbs

“Several people are going together to buy them,” Stumpf said.

When Stumpf went on vacation June 10, the business had sold about 12,000 to 13,000 bulbs. By Tuesday, almost 30,000 bulbs had been sold, Stumpf said.

The bulbs have brass bases, which means they won’t corrode in aluminum lamp sockets. The bulbs are available in 100, 75 and 60 watts.

With the demand, Stumpf said he was fortunate to find a supplier who could bring in the cases he needed.

“I’m only doing prepaid orders,” Stumpf said. His office is already crowded with cases of bulbs, he said.

“I’m getting orders from Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia,” Stumpf said.

Something else i get to “de-educate” my daughters on

Now i have to de-propagandize my daughters about the environazi agenda.


Under the graduation requirement, public schools will be required to infuse core subjects with lessons on conservation, smart growth and other environmental topics. School systems will be able to shape their programs, but they must align with state standards.

A Graphic Example of the War on Father’s and the Ensuing Pushback

Having been through something similar but with the grace of the Lord I effectivly won…i personally ahve witnessed too many cases of men getting hammered by the state without cause.  I’ve seen times where the hammmering was justified…don’t get me wrong but the state and the courts are heavily tilted against men in this country.  The next to last paragraph sums it up perfectly:

Rather than attacking the architectural manifestations of the State, we should withdraw from contact with it. In other words, don’t call the police under any circumstances, and insulate your family, to the extent possible, from any contact with “welfare” bureaucracies of every kind. This will mean being prepared as parents to take appropriate evasive action when one of the State’s tentacles reaches out, with malign intent, in the direction of one’s children. It also means being prepared and able to employ purely defensive force where all other alternatives have failed.

Let’s Keep Something in Mind

If i friend you on facebook it is NOT a statement of any kind about friendship outside of FB.  In fact the friend term shouldn’t be used on FB.  Conversely if i “defreind” you on fb it is not a statement about friendship or lack thereof  in the real world either.

Folks Wonder Why I Hermit…especially at Church

There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living

Thanks Ashley L.


Basically,  I have more important things to worry about than politics and drama.  I may be up waaaaaay to early but today is going to be a good day…Lord willing.

Lack of buyers may force Treasury to boost rates – Washington Times

Get ready folks.  If you have a job have a backup plan…now.  The instant the treasury has a failed bond auction they’ll have to raise rates.  One they do that all the cheap borrowing goes away….then things get ugly.


The U.S. Treasury next month will go back to relying on the kindness of strangers like never before to purchase the nation’s burgeoning debts — and taxpayers may have to pay higher interest rates to attract enough foreign investors, analysts say.

Though a significant rise in interest rates could be toxic for a softening U.S. economy, the Federal Reserve has said it will end its program of purchasing $600 billion in U.S. Treasury bonds as planned on June 30. The Fed is estimated to have bought about 85 percent of Treasury’s securities offerings in the past eight months.

That leaves the Treasury, which is slated to sell near-record amounts of new debt of about $1.4 trillion this year, without its main suitor and recent source of support, and forces it back into the vagaries of global markets. Among the countries that will have to step forward to prevent a debilitating rise in interest rates are China, Japan and Saudi Arabia — and even hostile nations such as Iran and Venezuela with petrodollars to invest, according to one analysis.

God Turns a Negative Into A Positive(Corrected)

For nearly 8 years now I have been working two jobs…one mowing grass and my business…Emmanuel Computer Consulting. This dual arrangement worked for a while but recently it became clear I needed to concentrate on my business as client calls were beginning to interfere with my ability to fully perform my duties as a field supervisor at my other job.  I have the philosophy to give 100% at whatever you are doing..and my mowing job has been no exception.  It has resulted in the owner allowing me to practically run the company in his absence with confidence his business will be taken care of.   i’ve been praying for restitution to this situation.  Recently my wife Gen was released form her job because “she did not have a positioned available at the new facility”.  80% of our household income just went poofies.  Well Gen and I had been praying for her to get out of the job she has and for me to be able to step in with my business and take her place(which in my opinion is how it should be).  I just had a meeting today with the owner of a much larger IT firm about doing some sub contracting work for him at his request.  After a very productive conversation and a good negotiation we came to a mutually agreed per-job payrate.  I now have to talk to the manager with whom i would be working with on a daily basis.  Once that interview is completed if they both approve i’ll have a contracting job making more than double what i make at the lawn mowing job.  This contract is at least 6 months..almost certainly longer.  I just now realized something as i type this…the barrier(which i could not figure out what it was) to me being able to do just this was gen’s job.  Not that i wanted her to loose her job…but me and gen BOTH wanted the roles to be reversed per say.  The Lord is providing that right now. One of my clients has an office manager position offer which gen would love to work at…it’s 10 minutes from the house and i literally drive by it every time i head to Frederick and back.  It would be perfect.  So far I have moved out of the way and let God work this out….He is working mightlyily indeed.  Updates to follow..:)
