Bad Nature

After months of speculation, rumor and conjecture our crack pot team of journalists, experts, scientists and know-it-alls have reveled the whole ugly truth of the wild kingdom gone wild. We have discovered and uncovered explicit evidence that shows the forces of nature as well as our dear little woodland creatures that we all love and adore are nothing more than ruthless merciless thugs who want nothing more than to see the human race vanish from the face of the earth.
We have in our possession evidence that show our furry and feathered friends have unionized, mobilized, and banded together despite there own differences, they have joined forces to rid this planet of "The One True Enemy". MAN!
If anyone is still unsure. . . let us now remove all doubt. . . they are out to get us!
These attacks use to seem infrequent and unorganized. We now know, unequivocally that the complete opposite is true. . . Take a look, the following photos show the results of many years of planning and an organized attack across the globe carried out with surgical precision.

First. Air Superiority. . . .
Then Control the seas. .
And Then Send in Heavy artillery
and finally ground troops
Mans best friend?
Or maybe they are just tired of the Paparazzi. . .

Intangible Force

Throughout the history of mankind someone, somewhere at sometime has been trying to crush the Human Spirit. However history also shows us that the greater the oppression the greater the resolve and the stronger the foundation becomes. The light may dim and the flame may flicker a bit, but the Human Spirit can never be extinguished.

Simple things like desire, belief and curiosity are but a small part of the Human Spirit. It is within the Human Spirit where our talents, gifts, dreams, our goals and inspirations reside. Even if it is unknown to us at the time, it is our life's purpose.

The Human Spirit is the fundamental yet complex life force that can never be snuffed out. The Human Spirit endures our faults our joys as well as our memories.
Is the Human Spirit the Soul? The lines one might say, are blurred. Certainly The Human Spirit and the Soul occupy space within the same realm. But one and the same?. . . I do not know.
Albeit intangible, The Human Spirit is our essential nature and the sense of our own significance.The underlying strength of the Human Spirit is our basic instinct to survive, our will to survive.
And despite seemingly insurmountable odds the Human Spirit is what moves us and challenges us to achieve, even if it takes generations.
The Human Spirit Lives!

The Road to Hell

"Judge me not by the results of my actions but on the intentions of my actions."
Actually I do not know if anyone has spoken those words out loud but it would appear as if those thoughts were a popular theme among many. Especially those who are in ownership of tremendous failure. It would seem that this train of thought is held dear by some in roles of leadership. However, "a leader cannot follow behind people, tail between his legs sniffing for their momentary whims and wishes, whining to follow them this way and that as they ramble through life. Those people are the most looking for a leader. They are looking for a master. . . and one will find them."
"A true leader forges a clear path through a moral wilderness so that people may see the way." He must find a correctly reasoned course to be a true leader of a free people.
The greatest harm can result from the best intentions.
OR as the old man used to tell me. . .
"The Road to Hell is Paved with good intentions."

Go Wild!!!

Tragedy struck Monday evening when a fire broke out at the Garden Terrace Assisted Living retirement apartments. One woman died as a result of her injuries suffered in the fire and another person died of an apparent heart attack due to the stress of the evacuation.

Tragedy as it was, I believe a major catastrophe was averted due to the quick thinking and heroic efforts of some young passers-by.

19 year old Mitch Torel, forward of the Wenatchee Wild Hockey team was driving home past the apartment building when he saw flames on the inside of one of the apartments. He called 911 and then ran into the building to pull the fire alarm.

"I ran up a couple of floors and started pounding on doors, trying to alert the residents." Torel said. " Some people needed help getting down the stairs because of their medical conditions and I tried to get them down the stairs as best I could."

Soon he said emergency crews arrived and helped the young man go door to door.

When he was asked if he was nervous he replied. "No not really, you don't have time to be nervous. I was just making sure everyone got out safe."

Mitch who is from Monticello Minnesota lives with Mike and Bets Harris of Wenatchee during The Wild Hockey season. His stay is also extended because The Wild made the Play-Offs.


It was also reported that a couple of young 14 year olds were passing by as well. Dahlton and his friend Dylan also called 911 when they saw the flames. They too made the heroic decision to go inside to help evacuate the residents.

"They were all just sitting there eating and the fire alarm was off." Dylann said. "They thought it was a fire drill or something. I said it was real and you guys need to get out."

As I said due to the heroic efforts of these unselfish young men a major catastrophe was averted.

It is so nice and refreshing to know that we have these kind of people in our community. Thank you gentlemen.

Stimulating the Census

Just the other day I received a letter telling me that I would soon be receiving a Census form in the mail. Now my first reflexive response was, "Well how many millions of stimulus dollars did this cost"? Now we have all seen this kind of mindless wasteful spending before and we will continue to see it I'm sure. So as you might imagine, as the words were leaving my lips I realized that the answer to my question was completely irrelevant. Because if you have to ask, the cost is to high!
So I have more questions. . . Who's running this Census? Is it ACORN? Or the Organizer in Chief Himself? Is it the "Government"? There's a trustworthy lot. Whatever the answer, I now find myself with only two options concerning the Census. . . It is said by law that we must fill out the census to the best of our ability. OK good!
Here are the two options that I see. First, When I do receive my Census (delivered on the tax payers backs) I will deposit directly into the trash. Or, I will state how many people live at my house and in the Race question box, (which there are several choices) I will mark the other
box and in the space provided in big bold Capitol letters I will write AMERICAN. Then I will send it in.
has common sense become an obscure ancient theory or misunderstood philosophy rather than an everyday practice that helps us have a better day?

When Huntin was Huntin

Today, March 9th is my father-in-laws 86th Birthday. His name is Buck Bailey. Now with a name like that I'm sure these photos do not surprise anyone. At 81 he went out on opening morning with his pride and joy, His grandson Travis. It was just the two of them and from what I heard of the trip it was one of the most successful trips in their long hunting history.

Ole Bailey shot a nice buck that morning as well.
That morning had turned out to be Bucks last hunting trip as he doesn't get around like he once did. This trip was physically taxing on him (something that he only admitted to later).
Even though he no longer hunts, his stories are as vivid and clear as any HDTV out there. And. . . even though I have, we all have heard his stories a hundred times I have to believe they are all true. One because I was there for a few of them, and two the stories never alter, they are the same every time they are told.
Happy Birthday Mr. Bailey and here is to many more years of stories of when "Huntin was Huntin."

The OR with Edward Holgren

Not to long ago I released a video on my youtube channel. A pilot, if you will. I called it "The OR with Edward Holgren". It was a fresh new entertaing news program. The first show delt with the issue of "healthcare". Even with my exclusive interview with Sarah Palin I didn't receive as many views as I would have liked. . .
So anyway I am looking to find out if I should continue with "The OR" or scrape it for now.
What do you think of Sarah?

Make Something

Political Correctness is not my thing. . . I don't often engage in it except in a manner in which to show how absurd it all is. . .

To sum it up. . .

People who are busy trying hard not to make mistakes, seldom make anything else either
