Paracord Survival Bracelets

Well, it's been a while, I know. Between school, looking for a job and whatnot's time has gotten away from me.

As most of you know, I'm a prepper. I really hate using that word, Prepper because it seems to carry a negative conotation lately but rest assured that you will NEVER see me on "Doomsday Preppers".  LOL

I, we, prepare in modesty. "Big Brother" says to pack enough food and water for 72 hours. Let's get real folks, I've been paying attention to the East Coast and what's happened with "Sandy". 72 hours isn't enough and rest assured that we have a little more than that stocked up, how much, I won't say.

I've been making and selling Paracord Survival Bracelets. Cool stuff! I mean really COOL Stuff! Anyways, I've made a Thin Purple Line Prepper Bracelet in order to identify other like minded individuals. I can also make any color combination you'd like. All I ask is please, no more the 4 colors, the bracelets get to bulky.

Please spread the word. Thanks :0)

Here's what it costs:

Bracelets are 7.00 +1.95 Shipping within the US (3.00 Shipping to Canada)
Key FOB's are 3.00 + 1.95 Shipping within the US (3.00 Shipping to Canada)

Payments can be made to Paypal:

Another day…

So, here we are with the Chick-fil-A nonsense. Have you ever heard of such CRAP? They certainly didn’t have a problem plastering a smile on their faces while they took our money.

Then we have Christopher Baker who returned his Eagle Scout Medal to the BSA (Boy Scouts of America) and added, “Being morally straight means standing up for equal right and inclusion, not bigotry.”

I applaud you, Christopher. It took courage to do what you did.

In today’s day and age, it’s a shame that we even have to deal with this at all but more people are now coming forward and supporting equality. More people are being counted, seen and heard than ever before and that’s a good thing.

bikerrainbowflag Now I’m curious. Where are the bikers in this? I know there are gay/lesbian motorcyclists. Where do you stand, together in a group or as 1 lone voice?

New adventures…

I’m working on my next Hightower book, although It’s coming along ever so slowly there is progress and I feel GOOD about it too. Yeah! I’ve missed Tamara and Izzy talking to me :0)

I’m almost done with school and almost a certified motorcycle mechanic. Woohoo! Now, I start on the difficult journey of finding a job in the field to gain experience before I open my own shop. Speaking of…I’ve been working on a logo for my business. I think I like the yellow one better, what do you think?

Good ole days

Ever wonder where the good ole days went? The days when you could  make a joke, use the word gay or queer or even criticize the President without fear of backlash from some politically correct group twitching to correct all the wrongs ever done? I do.


Now, I realize that this may piss some people off and…oh well. Here’s the truth folks, “Queer as Folk” and “Queer eye for the Straight Guy” would have lost it’s appeal without their respected titles. The politically correct and not to offend anyone title should have been “The Alternative Lifestyle People.” Really? BORING!


Okay, I’ll vent something else. Jason Alexander said the word gay as in that’s so gay and he got SHIT for it. Jason Alexander! From my understanding he’s always been very supportive of the GLBT community but the GLBT gurus had to give him shit. Really? The word “gay” was around and used way before we coined it back in the 1930’s. Have we forgotten that?


gay (Webster's Dictionary)

1. having or showing a merry, lively mood: gay spirits; gay music. Synonyms: cheerful, gleeful, happy, glad, cheery, lighthearted, joyous, joyful, jovial; sunny, lively, vivacious, sparkling; chipper, playful, jaunty, sprightly, blithe. Antonyms: serious, grave, solemn, joyless; staid, sedate; unhappy, morose, grim; sad, depressed, melancholy

2. bright or showy: gay colors; gay ornaments. Synonyms: colorful, brilliant, vivid, intense, lustrous; glittering, theatrical, flamboyant. Antonyms: dull, drab, somber, lackluster; conservative.


Moving on…

I am so tired of hearing people calling other people racist because they don’t like or approve what the President has done. Well, hold onto your pants for this one, I DON’T LIKE NOR APPROVE OF THE PRESIDENT and it has nothing to do with his skin color. It has everything to do with what I feel he’s done these past 4 years…nothing! Nothing good anyway. If he had done nothing we wouldn’t be in the mess we are in now.

So, you see, when he (the President) said he believes gays have the right to marry, I didn’t get excited. Why? Because he only spoke his opinion. He didn’t say he was going to bat for us. Nope. The only thing he did was say how he felt then he let everyone else draw their own conclusions. And our community did exactly that!


People need to stop being so damn sensitive and get a grip! Opinions are just that, opinions. People use words all the fucking time and it doesn’t mean they are talking about you, putting you down, or demoralizing you. Gay is gay. Queer is queer and the President sucks! Oh yeah, and I’m a DYKE! That’s life!

Mini Vacation

We finally got some time away from the hustle and bustle of the city and ended up in Fredericksburg, Texas.

What in the hell does this small  town hiding in the middle of hicksville Texas have to do with this blog? Well, I’m glad you asked.

First of all, not a single soul raised an eyebrow when my honey and I rolled into town holding hands. Everyone treated us, dare I say the word…EQUAL. Now, I’m no fool. I know that touristy towns make their money from people like us, you know, tourist but some towns aren’t always so accepting of “our kind” either.

Stop right there! I didn’t say that they welcomed us with a parade. Nope. Nothing like that. What they did do is treat us like any other couple and that was enough of a welcome for me and my honey to guarantee we’d be back with more of that “green” stuff to spend there. LOL

Almost everything is worth checking out. The Old Tunnel State Park where you can watch the bat emergence at night, The Wildseed Farms, The plethora of Vineyards, The Antique Shoppes, Candy Stores, and Peach Orchards.

On the opposite end of that, I have to say that I found David’s Old Fashioned Pit BBQ on Main Street to be rather disappointing. My issue with them included to major things:
1- When I told the cashier that I was deadly allergic to certain foods and asked if I was safe to eat at their establishment, I would have preferred to hear, let me get the manager NOT I think so. Nope. Not acceptable. Okay, so after 20 minutes we finally figured out what I could eat that wouldn’t try to kill me and we ordered. I thought that was going to be the end of my unpleasant experience.
2- While we were eating, my honey subtly pushed her plate away. Even though I know what that means I had to ask, “What’s wrong” because I am a glutton for punishment. When I informed the cashier, cook/server whoever she was about the strand of hair drowning in my honey’s plate, her response was, “Oh, sorry” as she continued to carry on her conversation with her “co-worker” never giving me, us another thought.
Do people with food allergies have a right to know exactly what they are eating? Did I have to tell everyone I knew what happened? Yeah, I think so. 

If you want an awesome place to eat on the way to Fredericksburg stop in Johnson City and eat at The Silver K Cafe on 290.

Any place that treats my honey and I like the normal couple we are deserves my support and that's what this little town has to do with my Sheboi blog. Just keeping it real folks :0)

Whether you’re in a car or on a bike you’ll find the back roads into Fredericksburg a delightful drive. Google Map

I’ve said it before…

red-hat-reality-check Things are going to hell in a hand basket…First of all, let me start by reminding every American that  “To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.” Theodore Roosevelt (1901-1909)

House Bill HR 347
This was copied from RT (Click here to be taken directly to to read it for yourselves.)
Just when you thought the government couldn’t ruin the First Amendment any further: The House of Representatives approved a bill on Monday that outlaws protests in instances where some government officials are nearby, whether or not you even know it.
The US House of Representatives voted 388-to-3 in favor of H.R. 347 late Monday, a bill which is being dubbed the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011. In the bill, Congress officially makes it illegal to trespass on the grounds of the White House, which, on the surface, seems not just harmless and necessary, but somewhat shocking that such a rule isn’t already on the books. The wording in the bill, however, extends to allow the government to go after much more than tourists that transverse the wrought iron White House fence.
Under the act, the government is also given the power to bring charges against Americans engaged in political protest anywhere in the country.
And… It’s not just the president who would be spared from protesters, either.
Covered under the bill is any person protected by the Secret Service. Although such protection isn’t extended to just everybody, making it a federal offense to even accidently disrupt an event attended by a person with such status essentially crushes whatever currently remains of the right to assemble and peacefully protest.
In the text of the act, the law is allowed to be used against anyone who knowingly enters or remains in a restricted building or grounds without lawful authority to do so, but those grounds are considered any area where someone — rather it’s President Obama, Senator Santorum or Governor Romney — will be temporarily visiting, whether or not the public is even made aware. Entering such a facility is thus outlawed, as is disrupting the orderly conduct of “official functions,” engaging in disorderly conduct “within such proximity to” the event or acting violent to anyone, anywhere near the premises. Under that verbiage, that means a peaceful protest outside a candidate’s concession speech would be a federal offense, but those occurrences covered as special event of national significance don’t just stop there, either. And neither does the list of covered persons that receive protection.
With Secret Service protection awarded to visiting dignitaries, this also means, for instance, that the federal government could consider a demonstration against any foreign president on American soil as a violation of federal law, as long as it could be considered disruptive to whatever function is occurring.
When thousands of protesters are expected to descend on Chicago this spring for the 2012 G8 and NATO summits, they will also be approaching the grounds of a National Special Security Event. That means disruptive activity, to whichever court has to consider it, will be a federal offense under the act.
And who do you think introduced this lovely Bill? Take a guess…it’s the same person who wants to pass the “Healthcare Bill” which is so good for the American people that he wants Americans “chipped” and neither him, his family or any other members of congress, or government official is going to partake in. Don’t believe me? Look it up yourself.

Start on page 1000 where it talks about setting up a National Medical Device Registry from H.R. 3200 [Healthcare Bill], pages 1,001-1,008:
(g)(1) The Secretary shall establish a national medical device registry (in this subsection referred to as the ‘registry’) to facilitate analysis of postmarket safety and outcomes data on each device that— ‘‘(A) is or has been used in or on a patient; ‘‘(B)and is— ‘‘(i) a class III device; or ‘‘(ii) a class II device that is implantable, life-supporting, or life-sustaining.”

A "class II device that is implantable?"
Then on page 1,004 it describes what the term "data" means in paragraph 1, section B: ‘‘(B) In this paragraph, the term ‘data’ refers to in formation respecting a device described in paragraph (1), including claims data, patient survey data, standardized analytic files that allow for the pooling and analysis of data from disparate data environments, electronic health records, and any other data deemed appropriate by the Secretary."
Approved by the FDA, a class II implantable device is a "implantable radiofrequency transponder system for patient identification and health information." The
And we think we can get equal rights when the basic fundamental rights of the American people are systematically being stripped away?
This is overwhelmingly starting to sound like “Creeping Sharia” has a foothold in America. Don’t think it’s happening? Again, do some research and start here… even more recently…March 18, 2012 Sharia Victory in Florida Threatens Human Rights
I don’t remember any mentions of Sharia Law until recently. Makes me wonder exactly where Sharia Law got it’s opening to invade our country... Goddess knows I’m going to offend someone so before I do let me say that I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…if things don’t get better, I’m moving my ass down to Mexico!

Image Okay, okay. Other than writing my very sexy vampire erotica books, I’m thrilled to be in school studying the most Butchiest course of all…Motorcycle Mechanics!

Yea, yea…I get dirty, greasy and I come home smelling like a mechanics shop, too! What can I say? I’m in heaven. So, I thought I’d update you as to exactly where in heaven I am.

I’ve completed Engine Overhaul and Electrical.
During the day I’m currently taking Drive Systems (Clutches and Transmissions) and my nights are filled with Tune-Up classes. Yup. That’s me burning the wick at both ends.

Speaking of both ends – you like how I lead that into my erotica writing? Both ends, get it? LOL   I know…I can be such a dork sometimes :0)

Writing is going good. I’m working on The Hightower's, book 7. We have a new character coming on board that I think you you’ll like. Samantha’s a ghost, yes, a ghost. Anyway, she’s attached herself to Tamara and she’s quite the character.

I’ve update my pages so it’s easier to find me:

And the new Website.

Oh, I love that sign! I love the Stroking part! LOL
