Why is it that I still think that .50 cent coins and $1.00 coins are really cool – along with $2 bills? When I was a kid it was the most special thing to get one.

Wal-Mart has lay-a-way again. This is a great time to buy a gun over time at a great price. My local Wal-Mart’s have a great assortment of AR’s and shotguns. AR’s are as low as $650.

Speaking of guns I am wanting to check out a Canik TP9. I watched this video and I feel like it is a very honest review. For the money looks to be a great deal.

I think “The Blacklist” is the best show on television. I have always been a huge fan of James Spader.

  1. I have a friend that searches out Dollar coins and $2 bills and likes to spend them . His favorite thing to do is find a teenage cashiers and pay with these coins and bills just to sew confusion. He gets a big kick at watching their faces and calling superiors to check the validity of bills and coins. George n L.A.

  2. Great! They have confirmed a case of Ebola in Dallas Texas from a person from Africa. I wonder if they will have to track down every person who was on the plane. What sucks even more is I live 20-25 minutes away from Dallas.
