President John Tyler's Grandsons Are Still Alive

Here's the most amazing thing you'll ever read about our 10th president:
John Tyler was born in 1790. He took office in 1841, after William Henry Harrison died. And he has two living grandchildren.
Not great-great-great-grandchildren. Their dad was Tyler’s son.

How is this possible?

The Tyler men have a habit of having kids very late in life. Lyon Gardiner Tyler, one of President Tyler’s 15 kids, was born in 1853. He fathered Lyon Gardiner Tyler Jr. in 1924, and Harrison Ruffin Tyler in 1928.
We placed a somewhat awkward call to the Charles City County History Center in Virginia to check in on the Tylers.
After we shared this fact on Twitter in 2012, Dan Amira interviewed Harrison Tyler for New York Magazine. Lyon Tyler spoke to the Daughters of the American Revolution a while back. Snopes is also in on the fact.

  If my math is right John Tyler had  Lyon at 63 !!!!
Lyon had his sons at 71 & 75 !!!!!

Sell contract came in. Lettin thing go.

       Well the property I had bought in Blountsville last year is now under contract. The family that lives next door wants it just so they can tear it down. Its to close for  Nabors for their taste. When they contacted me I had just found out I was sick so I threw out twice what I have in it and they took it. Now  a 1500$ profit isn't huge but the timing is good for me. I know I wont  be in any shape to do any thing with it for a while, and 3000$ back in the bank suits me. The close date is to be now till April 15 th. depending on their attorney drawing up the paperwork.
       With my son getting his place the need to use Blountsville as a food commissary is not an issue. He has plenty of room to build what we need and most the material to.

         I still am thinking on my BOL property. My wifes granddaughter  has looked at it and liked it she has that camper I helped her get last year. At this point in my life if she wants it I will let it go. I can always cache some supplies on the property even if I sell it to her.

     Next to go will be my old ranger . I have had it 8 years and the book value is 400$ more than I gave for it.

I Start Monday.

     Today I finally met my oncologist ! He seems like a competent doctor and answered my question without dancing around. He has a quiet kind voice suited to the bad news he has to give to some people. I was asked about my ability to eat, pain level, and if I was willing to get a port for chemo.

    At this point I had to stop him and describe myself to him . I made it clear I am a Man I wanted him to treat my cancer aggressively  I don't whine but if I was hurting I would let them know. There would be no feeding tube unless I was below 180 lb. and agreed. As for a port everyone I had talked to said it was better than an arm IV so schedule it. I also made it clear I was a straight talker and wanted him to return the favor  NO CANDY COATING and ALL OPTIONS ON TABLE. He said few patient fit what I described and asked for. Seems he has a lot of patient he has to coddle and baby.

    I start my chemo on Monday morning then I have radiation that afternoon. It looks like I will get 42 doses of radiation and 13 chemo treatments . One day next week I will also get the chemo port in my chest. I will be dealing with these treatments till at least May 15 th.

walls are good

During the recent election Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, a severe critic of Donald Trump's plan to build a wall across the southern border and a top donor to the Hillary Clinton campaign forgot to mention he had a $10 million estate in San Francisco around which he built a wall to keep out the tens of thousands of undocumented aliens freely wondering the streets of that sanctuary city.  Now to compound his hypocrisy this billionaire has built a huge 6' wall around his massive Hawaiian estate.  A wall that would not only keep out those Mexicans who managed to swim to Hawaii, but one that also blocks his neighbors view of the Pacific Ocean.  Zuckerberg is proving he is no different than other coastal elites who feel they are above practicing what they preach.  They fall into they well established class whose motto is: "do as I say and not as I do"!
I would be the first to say, there is nothing wrong with a man building a wall around his home to keep out unwanted visitors.  But then I would also be the first to tell you there is nothing wrong with a nation state building a wall on it's border also to keep out unwanted interlopers.  Walls that keep people out are welcome, however walls that keep people in (the old Berlin Wall) are another thing.  But even there, there are some exceptions---prison walls are just fine.

beer and the wheel

The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel.
Beer required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture.
Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That’s how villages were formed.
The wheel was invented to get man to the beer and vice versa. These two were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:
1. Liberals.
2. Conservatives.
Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to BBQ at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement.
Other men who were less skilled at hunting (called ‘vegetarians’ which was an early human word meaning ‘bad hunter’) learned to live off the Conservatives by showing up for the nightly BBQ’s and doing the sewing, fetching and hairdressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement.
Some of these liberal men evolved into women. Others became known as girlie-men. Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs and the concept of democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that Conservatives provided.
Over the years Conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass for obvious reasons.
Modern Liberals like lite beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine, or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare. Another interesting evolutionary side note: many liberal women have higher testosterone levels than their men.
Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, film makers in Hollywood, group therapists and community organizers are liberals.
Liberals meddled in our national pastime and invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn’t fair to make the pitcher also bat.
Conservatives drink real beer. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are members of the military, electricians, big game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, engineers, corporate executives, athletes, airline pilots and generally anyone who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other Conservatives who want to work for a living.
Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when Conservatives were coming to America . They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing.
Here ends today’s lesson in world history. It should be noted that a liberal may have a momentary urge to angrily respond to this post.
A Conservative will simply laugh and be so convinced of the absolute truth of this history that it will be shared immediately to other true believers and to just piss-off more liberals.
…and there you have it.

Gun rights as womans rights.

     Same rights as guns...
Image may contain: 3 people, people smiling, crowd, tree and outdoor

This poor lady....
- She wants you to wait 72 hours after you go out to buy a woman while you await a background investigation.
- She wants women to be banned from entering schools and college campuses.
- She wants women banned from polling places on Election Day.
- She wants you to pay a fee to the state before you carry a woman .
- She wants some women banned simply because they look too scary.
- She wants women banned from all airports.
- She wants women to be locked up at all times when not in use.


She also wants different rules for different states and, sometimes, for different cities/towns/villages in each state.

I assume that the "organizers" shared some pre-approved messages with their sheep?  Not very intelligent but, hey, to each it's own...  I hope she never wants to live in Chicago or New York or pretty much anywhere in California.  Ignorance is bliss.

She has no idea how difficult it will be for her to live or travel in Illinois...  ;)
