    A show of hands

    If I got punched in the face twice, I would be fighting back and protecting myself. I don't think its fair that both get the same punishment. The name calling that the bully used, should of been handled and dealt with beforehand.

    Meet my granddaughter Faith Marie

    Yesterday was Faith Marie’s 8th month birthday. She is 13# & 24 1/2” long. She loves most baby foods, loves to “talk”, & knows who is talking to her. She has been learning so much stuff this past month. Her appt in Pitts went well, so well in fact, the Drs said that Faith would live past her 1st birthday. With all the prayers this little girl has in our area, state, and country, God hears them, and He has healed most of the problems she was born with! Thank you Jesus!!

    Meet my granddaughter Faith Marie

    Today Faith Marie is 1 month old. ❤️ 🙏🏻 ❤️ We are told that her odds of making it to a yr old go up if she made it to a month old. I say she has the same odds as the rest of us. When God calls us home, we go.

    Amish

    As some of you know, we reside in Troutville, a community make up of many Amish families. Every year we have a tradition of riding around town looking at the Christmas lights. This years winner...

    You have no proof of that. People make their own choices regardless as how they were raised. These two "kids" are well beyond the age of reason. No matter what their parents taught them, they made their own choices to do what they did.

    Brandi, Deryk, & Faith’s Wedding Day

    I finally got to meet Bon and Spawn of Bon (Brandi) for the Wedding reception on Saturday. I had a good time DJing the reception and I'd like to say thank you to their family for being so kind. I was so glad to be apart of their special day. Their little peanut "Faith" is such an angel. (God Bless Her)

    College Graduation Rates

    IMO these high schools/guidance counselors need to start pushing trade schools and the various trades apprenticeship programs as hard as they push college. Name me one college/college degree that gives you a job, pays you, and gives you full benefits while you're going to school and when you graduate go right into a position that can pay $100k+/year plus benefits?

    Could you??

    I think this is one of the most ignorant posts you've written. When my Father was having health issues stuck in different hospitals in Pittsburgh unable to speak for himself the most important thing to me was trying to help him and Make sure my Mom was able to be there with him too. My lawn was the last thing on my mind.

    Had any of you heard of this before? It's been going on here for the last several years, and in 2018 Tebow actually showed up. Not even the event planners knew he was coming. Tim Tebow is the real deal, he puts his heart into his faith, and even with the beliefs I have that is something that gets my utmost respect. He doesn't make a big deal about it, he just does it

    Advanced Disposal Landfill Collapse

    This is the time of year where we give our PowerPoint presentations to the big wheels, show them what changes we have made that are going to make us better the following year. I have an entire slide devoted to one topic. We were finally allowed to make drastic cuts in one specific area, and after only 8 months there is a noticeable difference in not only stability, but also a reduction in costs associated with the after effects of that material once it is placed in the landfill. These changes were not made just at my site, but were mandatory nationwide, with severe penalties for anyone violating the new policies. It will never be said out loud, but there is not a doubt in my mind that the ripples that caused these changes originated from a little mountain town in PA. Thank you for making noise

    State of the Union

    So are you arguing that the nepotism in the Trump White House is ok because Biden has also used nepotism to help his kids out? Let's call a spade a spade. Either be for nepotism or against it. Either before the constitution or against it. This back and forth "outrage" when it suits us is getting old. Using one party's bad behaviors to justify our party's bad behaviors is getting old. There will never be corrupt free government and until we the people stop standing for the same old same old BS each day.

    One million moms needs to focus on more pressing issues. If they're truly worried about children, how many homeless kids are out there in need of help? Or they could have a coat/ hat/ glove drive for those in need.

    what the day is all about

    This kinda puts it all in the order as to what the day is all about. Hope you like it. Samuel Awesome story!!!! The old man sat in his gas station on a cold Christmas Eve. He hadn't been anywhere in years since his wife had passed away. He had no decorations, no tree, no lights. It was just another day to him. He didn't hate Christmas, just couldn't find a reason to celebrate. There were no children in his life. His wife had gone. He was sitting there looking at the snow that had been falling for the last hour and wondering what it was all about when the door opened and a homeless man stepped through. Instead of throwing the man out, George, Old George as he was known by his customers, told the man to come and sit by the space heater and warm-up. "Thank you, but I don't mean to intrude," said the stranger. "I see you're busy. I'll just go" "Not without something hot in your belly," George turned and opened a wide mouth Thermos and handed it to the stranger. "It ain't much, but it's hot and tasty. Stew. Made it myself. When you're done there's coffee and it's fresh." Just at that moment he heard the "ding" of the driveway bell. "Excuse me, be right back," George said. There in the driveway was an old 53 Chevy. Steam was rolling out of the front. The driver was panicked. "Mister can you help me!" said the driver with a deep Spanish accent. "My wife is with child and my car is broken." George opened the hood. It was bad. The block looked cracked from the cold; the car was dead. "You ain't going in this thing," George said as he turned away. "But mister. Please help...."The door of the office closed behind George as he went in. George went to the office wall and got the keys to his old truck, and went back outside. He walked around the building and opened the garage, started the truck and drove it around to where the couple was waiting. "Here, you can borrow my truck," he said. "She ain't the best thing you ever looked at, but she runs real good." George helped put the woman in the truck and watched as it sped off into the night. George turned and walked back inside the office. "Glad I loaned em the truck. Their tires were shot too. That 'ol truck has brand new tires........" George thought he was talking to the stranger, but the man had gone. The thermos was on the desk, empty with a used coffee cup beside it. "Well, at least he got something in his belly," George thought. George went back outside to see if the old Chevy would start. It cranked slowly, but it started. He pulled it into the garage where the truck had been. He thought he would tinker with it for something to do. Christmas Eve meant no customers. He discovered the block hadn't cracked, it was just the bottom hose on the radiator. "Well, I can fix this," he said to himself. So he put a new one on. "Those tires ain't gonna get 'em through the winter either." He took the snow treads off of his wife's oldLincoln. They were like new and he wasn't going to drive the car. As he was working he heard a shot being fired. He ran outside and beside a police car an officer lay on the cold ground. Bleeding from the left shoulder, the officer moaned, "Help me." George helped the officer inside as he remembered the training he had received in the Army as a medic. He knew the wound needed attention. "Pressure to stop the bleeding," he thought. The laundry company had been there that morning and had left clean shop towels. He used those and duct tape to bind the wound. "Hey, they say duct tape can fix anythin'," he said, trying to make the policeman feel at ease. "Something for pain," George thought. All he had was the pills he used for his back. "These ought to work." He put some water in a cup and gave the policeman the pills. "You hang in there. I'm going to get you an ambulance." George said, but the phone was dead. "Maybe I can get one of your buddies on that there talk box out in your police car." He went out only to find that a bullet had gone into the dashboard destroying the two way radio. He went back in to find the policeman sitting up. "Thanks," said the officer. "You could have left me there. The guy that shot me is still in the area." George sat down beside him. "I would never leave an injured man in the Army and I ain't gonna leave you." George pulled back the bandage to check for bleeding. "Looks worse than what it is. Bullet passed right through 'ya. Good thing it missed the important stuff though. I think with time your gonna be right as rain." George got up and poured a cup of coffee. "How do you take it?" he asked. "None for me," said the officer. "Oh, yer gonna drink this. Best in the city." Then George added: "Too bad I ain't got no donuts." The officer laughed and winced at the same time. The front door of the office flew open. In burst a young man with a gun. "Give me all your cash! Do it now!" the young man yelled. His hand was shaking and George could tell that he had never done anything like this before. "That's the guy that shot me!" exclaimed the officer. "Son, why are you doing this?" asked George. "You need to put the cannon away. Somebody else might get hurt." The young man was confused. "Shut up old man, or I'll shoot you, too. Now give me the cash!" The cop was reaching for his gun. "Put that thing away," George said to the cop. "We got one too many in here now." He turned his attention to the young man. "Son, it's Christmas Eve. If you need the money, well then, here. It ain't much but it's all I got. Now put that pee shooter away." George pulled $150 out of his pocket and handed it to the young man, reaching for the barrel of the gun at the same time. The young man released his grip on the gun, fell to his knees and began to cry. "I'm not very good at this am I? All I wanted was to buy something for my wife and son," he went on. "I've lost my job. My rent is due. My car got repossessed last week..." George handed the gun to the cop. "Son, we all get in a bit of squeeze now and then. The road gets hard sometimes, but we make it through the best we can." He got the young man to his feet, and sat him down on a chair across from the cop. "Sometimes we do stupid things." George handed the young man a cup of coffee. "Being stupid is one of the things that makes us human. Comin' in here with a gun ain't the answer. Now sit there and get warm and we'll sort this thing out." The young man had stopped crying. He looked over to the cop. "Sorry I shot you. It just went off. I'm sorry officer." "Shut up and drink your coffee." the cop said. George could hear the sounds of sirens outside. A police car and an ambulance skidded to a halt. Two cops came through the door, guns drawn. "Chuck! You ok?" one of the cops asked the wounded officer. "Not bad for a guy who took a bullet. How did you find me?" "GPS locator in the car. Best thing since sliced bread. Who did this?" the other cop asked as he approached the young man. Chuck answered him, "I don't know. The guy ran off into the dark. Just dropped his gun and ran." George and the young man both looked puzzled at each other. "That guy works here," the wounded cop continued. "Yep," George said. "Just hired him this morning. Boy lost his job." The paramedics came in and loaded Chuck onto the stretcher. The young man leaned over the wounded cop and whispered, "Why?" Chuck just said, "Merry Christmas, boy. And you too, George, and thanks for everything." "Well, looks like you got one doozy of a break there. That ought to solve some of your problems." George went into the back room and came out with a box. He pulled out a ring box. "Here you go. Something for the little woman. I don't think Martha would mind. She said it would come in handy some day." The young man looked inside to see the biggest diamond ring he ever saw. "I can't take this," said the young man. "It means something to you." "And now it means something to you," replied George. "I got my memories. That's all I need." George reached into the box again. A toy airplane, a racing car and a little metal truck appeared next. They were toys that the oil company had left for him to sell. "Here's something for that little man of yours." The young man began to cry again as he handed back the $150 that the old man had handed him earlier. "And what are you supposed to buy Christmas dinner with? You keep that, too. Count it as part of your first week's pay." George said. "Now git home to your family." The young man turned with tears streaming down his face. "I'll be here in the morning for work, if that job offer is still good." "Nope. I'm closed Christmas day," George said. "See ya the day after." George turned around to find that the stranger had returned. "Where'd you come from? I thought you left?" "I have been here. I have always been here," said the stranger. "You say you don't celebrate Christmas. Why?" "Well, after my wife passed away I just couldn't see what all the bother was. Puttin' up a tree and all seemed a waste of a good pine tree. Bakin' cookies like I used to with Martha just wasn't the same by myself and besides I was getting a little chubby." The stranger put his hand on George's shoulder. "But you do celebrate the holiday, George. You gave me food and drink and warmed me when I was cold and hungry. The woman with child will bear a son and he will become a great doctor. The policeman you helped will go on to save 19 people from being killed by terrorists. The young man who tried to rob you will become a rich man and share his wealth with many people. That is the spirit of the season and you keep it as good as any man." George was taken aback by all this stranger had said. "And how do you know all this?" asked the old man. "Trust me, George. I have the inside track on this sort of thing. And when your days are done you will be with Martha again." The stranger moved toward the door. "If you will excuse me, George, I have to go now. I have to go home where there is a big celebration planned." George watched as the man's old leather jacket and his torn pants turned into a white robe. A golden light began to fill the room. "You see, George, it's My birthday. Merry Christmas."

    A show of hands

    I have always taught my children that you walk away from every situation.....unless someone puts their hands on you. Verbal arguments almost always lead to physical altercations between teenagers so if you do not engage in a verbal argument then it ends right there. But if someone assaults my child they have my fullest permission to defend themselves and I will defend them. I will not get into what I think of how the schools, especially the DuBois Middle school handle (or doesn't handle) situations like this but always teach your child to defend themselves no matter what as long as it's justified.

    Pizza Pizza

    Grilling a frozen pizza gives frozen pizza a great grilled flavor. Making your own will ruin you. No kidding, I gained 20lbs in two months after I learned how to make them. The first one was good, and I didn't know what I was doing. Now there isn't a pizza place within 50 miles that even comes close. Heres my favorite recipe: dough Cantadina tomato sauce Canadian bacon Spicy Italian sausage (I cook mine on the gas grill before making the pizza) Sauteed mushrooms 3 cheeses: provolone, mozzarella, and grated Parmesan Basil leaves, shredded or torn Heat the grill to 450-500 degrees. I like to use a lot of charcoal, covering almost all of the lower grate. Preheat the stone for 8-10 minutes. Lift the lid, sprinkle corn meal all over the stone, then lay the dough on the stone. Close the lid and cook for 2 minutes, while the dough is cooking sprinkle a little corn meal on the peel. After 2 minutes take the dough off and flip it over on the peel, toasted side up. Close the lid on the grill while topping the pizza to retain heat. Spread tomato sauce on the dough to taste. I like my toppings under the cheese, so I add Canadian bacon, sausage, mushrooms, provolone, mozzarella, grated Parmesan, then top with fresh basil leaves in that order. Only that order Remove the lid, sprinkle the stone with corn meal again, slide the pizza back onto the stone, and close the lid. Cooking time is usually 6-8 minutes depending on the temperature of the grill. 400 degrees or higher is best, but it will work down to 350, the crust just won't be as light and crispy. I start checking with a spatula at about 5 and a half minutes. I want the bottom brown, verging on turning black. The roasting corn meal gives the dough a wonderful flavor. Remove from heat, slice, and enjoy. Serves 2 normal people, or one fatazz redneck. Time to complete, from beginning to end, is approximately 3 margaritas

    Pat Catans

    DuBois Courier Express reports: Area crafters will be happy to know that the Pat Catan's Craft Center in DuBois will become a new Michaels store by late summer, according to The Michaels Companies Public Relations Manager Mallory Smith. "We can confirm that after a comprehensive review, we have identified DuBois, Pa., as one of the 12 Pat Catan's locations that we intend to rebrand and reopen as new Michaels stores later this year," said Smith. "We look forward to reopening and inspiring the DuBois community to unleash their inner maker." Smith said she expects the store to begin the conversion process around June 22 and reopen as a Michaels store in mid to late August. The DuBois store, which is located in the DuBois Commons, near Lowe’s, opened Aug. 31, 2017. The Sandy Township Pat Catan’s initially faced an uncertain future after its parent company, Michaels, announced in late January that all 36 locations in Ohio and surrounding states would close, and no more than 12 would reopen as Michaels stores. There are a total of 36 Pat Catan’s stores in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, West Virginia and Indiana. The local store employs about 33 people, both part- and full-time. Like Pat Catan’s, Michaels also offers a large selection of craft, hobby, floral and art supplies.
