Energy Dependence Job Scam

In the latest scam played out on Americans via the Keystone XL (tar sands) pipeline, we are led to believe that it will create thousands of jobs for Americans and that we will lessen our dependence on foreign oil / energy.

To the contrary, facts seem to indicate that the Keystone pipeline will be a way to move Canadian tar sands oil to refineries here in the US to be exported to other countries. On the issue of jobs, creating a pipeline would indeed create jobs for Americans, and the refineries in Texas would benefit. But don't sell Americans on the notion that building a new pipeline will help lessen our dependence on foreign oil when the facts seem to indicate that refined crude will not stay on US soil very long.

Republicans have been very disappointing on this issue. Sean Hannity, Mitt Romney, etc. have all chimed in. Romney was even quoted as saying he would build the pipeline himself if elected.

Let's be clear on the issue of job creation and energy …

Lake Texoma Fishing Report April 2012

Lake Texoma Fishing Soft I love fishing Lake Texoma for Stripers / Striped Bass. I hadn't been to Texoma since January and wanted to see if I could take a group of friends to catch some nice fish. All of the fishing reports for Lake Texoma seemed to indicate that fishing is amazing right now, but that's not what we experienced on our fishing trip April 28, 2012. Fortunately, we were on a boat and with a guide that seemed to fair better than most Saturday. We went out with Sparky's Guide Service. Sparky has one of the largest fleets of boats on Texoma including a couple of airboats for those who want to fish for catfish, or get below the dam when it's opened. The fishing reports over the radio were common; Guide after guide reported marking fish, but they just were not biting...that's how fishing goes. If you are looking to catch some big fish right now, the end of May is said to be more promising for some large stripers as females will be finished spawning and they will be hu…

Stand Up Desk Ikea

Stand Up Desk From Ikea Without knowing, I've become part of the stand up desk movement. Having some back issues off and on for a number of years my back has been acting up again. I've been sitting in a chair for 8-14 hours a day for nearly 12 years and I knew I needed to do something different. Yesterday, I found an article from a Google employee who used and Ikea desk and configured it as a standup desk. (I'll link to the article later) So now I start my journey over the next couple weeks of moving from a sit down set up to standing up at my new desk. I'm going to try it out for a week or so in our conference room before start re-arranging my office. Below are some photos of how my initial set up looks. I'll be modifying an Ikea stool as well which I'll take a photo of later. I'll be using that to sit nearly standing for short periods of time until I get my body adjusted to the new configuration. I'll also post some updates on how my back and feet are adapting. A…
