THANK YOU

September 26, 2017

I would like to thank everyone for their comments.

I have not changed my opinion nor my pledge to boycott the NFL and their games on TV. For me, as a veteran, it is about respect and honor for our Country, our Flag and those that gave everything for this country in current and past years.  I find the player’s behavior as it relates to our National Anthem and Flag offensive and therefore I have chosen not to watch. The players can do whatever they want, but that does not mean I have to watch or support them. Just as they feel they have a right, I and all fans have a right to let them know we do not agree with their behavior.

Comment:  As far as I know, FREE SPEECH and the right to PROTEST is not protected by the first amendment in the work place or on private property. I don’t know of any company/workplace where it is okay to show up and preach your personal religion and/or your personal politics. Free Speech is protected on your own time and in a public place. I am not saying one can’t do it, I am just pointing out that it is not protected by the first amendment and there could be consequences. Like getting fired by your boss.  This issue is not about free speech or the right to protest. The players, like all Americans, have those rights because veterans have given their lives to protect those rights for all Americans.

Show respect and honor our Country, “Standup for America.”

Boycott The NFL

September 24, 2017

I have decided to boycott the NFL and not watch anymore NFL games on TV or go to any of their games. I have been a fan for over 50 years. I have also decided to let their sponsors know I will not be buying their products either. Disrespect for America and it’s flag is just not acceptable behavior that I want to watch.

Stand up for America!

This is just to give you an update since so many have been asking. We do not have any owls but we are getting lots of rain so if the food supply increases we might just see some owls either later in the year or next year. Only time will tell.

Donna and I are doing great and attended the 2015 International MOD Meet in Minneapolis this past year.  It was fantastic! Austin is working with the San Diego Airport making videos and graphic advertising designs, so over the holidays we thought we would have some fun and make a video for Macadamia Nut lovers.  I had ordered 17 lbs of in the shell macadamia nuts from Hawaii. The question was how do you crack them?

When I looked on the internet I couldn’t find an easy way or tool to crack a macadamia nut for less than about $100. The tool I recommend, you might already have in your garage or you can pick one up at most hardware stores for less than $15. I don’t want to take all the credit. My barber, Gary Favron, actually recommended it. If you like the video pass it on. Who knows, maybe we can get a million hits.

We wish everyone a Fun and Fantastic 2016!

Carlos, Donna and Austin

P.S. Let us know what you think of the video.

The IMM15 Broadcast and Auction has been moved to 8 PM Central Time.  I estimate the broadcast will last less than an hour since we will be using my iPhone and it will run down fast.

Join in the fun, join the bidding. It is for a good cause, The MODs Foundation supporting wildlife but also helping others. An approved 503 Charity.

We will try to broadcast the Wing Ding and Auction using my iPhone. A matching signed set of photos of Molly and McGee will be Auctioned off for the MODs Foundation Charity.

For details http://modstakeflight2015.eflea.ca/

Join the fun. We think the auction will be around 6:15 PM Central Time.

How many times have you wanted to do or go someplace but didn’t and later regretted it? My son and I had this conversion last week as we reminisced about all the fun things we did together when he was kid.  “A lot of good memories,” he said.

Later after thinking about it, I sent him this text message.

There is a lesson to be learned from this conversation. Do fun things and you will have good memories.”

His reply: “That is a good lesson.”

Post Note: After my son and I had that conversation we booked a fishing trip and bought tickets to an up coming Chargers football game. We decided to create more good memories together and see if going forward we can’t drop all the reasons why we can’t.

What I have found in life is there are always reasons why one can’t or shouldn’t do something, but if you want to have good memories you just do them anyway. See you in Minneapolis.

The 2015 International MOD Meet is now less than two months away (Sept. 18-20). Donna and I will be attending. Then we plan to visit North Dakota, the least visited of all the States. Ask yourself, “Have you ever been to North Dakota?”  Many will answer yes, I visited Mt. Rushmore, but they are wrong. Mt. Rushmore is in South Dakota, so is Sturgis and Deadwood. Two fun places to visit if you want to turn the International MOD Meet into a longer trip.  So what’s in North Dakota? Theodore Roosevelt National Park and Medora, where they have a great outdoor reenactment theater. Then there is Willston, if you want see an oil boom/bust town. It can be scary wild during boom times and ghostly during bust times.  Finally, to get in a little fishing and relaxing, there is Lake Sakakawea, which has some of the best pike fishing, just another secret of North Dakota.  See you at the International MOD Meet, bring your fishing pole. There are 10,000 lakes in Minnesota; officially there are 11,842 lakes.
