Being an Ozarks Hillbilly has its privileges!

Who would have thunk it? There are people all over the country envious of us stinkin' hillbillies. Apparently, Missouri has the lowest gas prices in the nation. It's just $3.79 down the street.

According to Slate.com it's a combination of our low gas tax and our close proximity to high oil producing states like OK and TX.

Hmmm, I wonder if you can sell gas on e-bay?

Early Christmas Shopping

I can't really explain how my mind works, it just does. Let's just say I was equally inspired by JenGi's post on yet another useful, but obscure product and Stacey's post about her attempt at a tan.

I am always on the lookout for Christmas gifts. Especially gifts for all of the hard to buy for people on my list. Some time ago while in a local farm and home supply store I ran across this product and my mind was flooded with people I was sure could use a can.

I know, it's the perfect gift for so many, even if they don't participate in any butt busting activities! Can't you just see the looks one their faces right now when they unwrap their gift! Even better they have apparel and temporary tattoos!!

Today was my little boy's first day at summer school. His first day in a big kids school. The first time he has physically been this far away from me with someone other than family caring for him. I'm having minor anxiety issues.

Today is the first day of an 8 week selling season that will determine the pace for the next year. The economy stinks, will people still buy? After all, it's the #1 publication of it's kind in the country.
