Finally Back in Texas

After 18 years it is nice to be back in Texas. It is not so much that I did not like South Carolina or Mississippi, but it’s just I like Texas better than any other place. I have always tried to explain that to people and for some reason it is like everyone either loves […]

Christmas Eve in Mississippi

Spending the day watching the weather, something like 30 counties under a Tornado Watch. To the West it is snowing in Dallas, this could make for an interesting Christmas Holiday here. Hopefully the Tornado’s will stay away and we can just enjoy the family and food tonight and tomorrow. It is certainly a lot different […]

Finally Fall Weather in Mississippi

We have had a couple days of great fall temperatures. We could actually walk a couple miles today without having to wait for the sun to go down, lol. Of course it will probably be back in the 90’s by the end of the week, but we will take what we can get, when we […]

2009 AT&T Cotton Bowl

TheĀ 2009 AT&T Cotton Bowl creates a little bit of a dilemma for me. I live in Mississippi, been here for 12 years, but, I grew up in Texas. So with the Ole Miss Rebels taking on the Texas Tech Red Raiders I am going to have to choose an allegiance that could get me in […]

Mule Jail Trail

Now say that fast 3 times. Enjoyed a nice walk/hike on the Mule Jail Trail yesterday. I have to admit I had never seen or heard of it until my wife pointed it out. It is a small series of Trails on the west side of the Ross Barnett Reservoir damn. The entrance is not […]

Mississippi Weather

This is the time of the year I can actually enjoy the Mississippi weather. I spent a lot of time in South Texas and I always thought that was the most hot and humid weather there was, until I moved to Mississippi. In July and August the heat and humidity is the worst I have […]

Cheapest Gas Prices

It is amazing that 7 miles makes such a difference in gas prices. I drive about 8 miles to work, near my home the gas prices are almost always 15 cents or more above those near my office. The only thing I can attribute it to is that the stations with the lower prices are […]

Jackson Metro Area Starbucks Closings

I guess that tells a story within a story, it looks like 4 out of 5 Starbucks within a 10 mile or so radius are closing in the Jackson Metro area. I have been living here for 11 years and I am still amazed at how this city stays alive. Of course in a lot […]

Fuel and Electricity Price Increases

The local news is reporting an increase in electricity prices in the neighborhood of 28%. I guess it is time to start doing something to help myself since it is obvious that we are going to continue to see prices rise. Researching Solar Power can be a little depressing. The savings can be fantastic, but […]

Lazy Magnolia Beer

My lofty goal for the weekend between all the yard work and working on my Real Estate license is to find a Party Pig of Lazy Magnolia Beer. Especially the Southern Pecan beer. I am not a big beer drinker, but I love beer that is a little different. After seeing a Mississippi Roads segment […]

Mens Straw Hat

Every year about this time, I tell my wife I need a Mens Straw Hat. And every year, usually about the time I pull my Fedora out for winter wearing, I realize I never got my hat. I probably have close to 100 Baseball Caps that I wear year round, but I want something a […]

Spring in Mississippi

We are only a week into spring and I am already tired. We have had some beautiful weather over the last week, the flowers are blooming and the yard work is already causing work. I spent 2 whole days cutting and mowing. I just love the big lot, until it’s time to mow and trim, […]

March Madness

So much for my March Madness bracket, thanks to Duke losing to West Virginia in the second round. Growing up in Texas and now living in Mississippi I know there are a lot of quality southern teams I should be rooting for, but, I have been a Duke fan for 20 years now and it […]

Thanks WJTV

WJTV in Jackson, held a Central Mississippi Blogger Meet-Up on Saturday May 5th. The turn out was very, very disappointing. I was shocked that only 2 bloggers showed up. Jackson is definitely an apathetic area, but I really thought the bloggers would cross that boundary. How in the world can a blogger be apathetic? The […]

Central Mississippi Blogger Meet Up

WJTV-TV in Jackson has graciously agreed to serve as host for a blogger meet-up at 11 o’clock a.m. on Saturday, May 5th. Refreshments will be served and everyone who attends will get the hottest in channel 12 swag, […]

If you want to join the Circus, move to Jackson, MS

This is one crazy place to be. I have been here for almost 10 years and I still walk around wondering about it. I have lived in several states, mainly Texas and I have never felt like I understood Mississippi. It is a beautiful place, and it has some of the nicest people in the […]

No I am not AWOL

I have just been busy with all these other things. We took a little road trip on Saturday to Philadelphia, Mississippi. And I have been spending most my time on the computer working on CybersMusic.com. The road trip was nice. Just to get away by ourselves (the wife & I), driving and talking was really […]

Immigration Debate

I have stayed clear of this issue so far, but, it is getting increasingly harder to do. I grew up as a Military brat, this means that I learned to live and share with people from all corners of this country. Most of my youth was spent in the San Antonio, Texas area. Both my […]

Mississippi Genealogy

Several years ago this site was dedicated to Mississippi Genealogy Research. I did not realize until recently that several search engines are still listing us under this heading. Not exactly sure why this old data has not been updated, but, if you do a Google search for Mississippi Genealogy you will find us listed with […]

Professional Sports

As a kid growing up I was a major NFL Football fan. My beloved Dallas Cowboys were as close to my heart as anything else in life. Over the years I never missed a game. In 1997 when I moved to Mississippi I purchased Direct TV for the sole purpose of getting all the Cowboy […]
