Bird Hunting is my Escape

Bird Hunting is my Escape

It had been awhile since I’d been able to break away from the home and kids to join Charles in the hunting fields, but Saturday, January 28th was on the calendar as a hunting date, in observance of the last weekend of the season. We left town around 5 AM with our sights set on the Kansas border in hopes of pheasants, quail and prairie chicken.Quail hunting Texas

We hit a 200+ acre field around 8 AM on a sunny but chilly morning and walked from east to west through a nice blend of big bluestem and indiangrass. Within 15 minutes Charles and the dogs put up a hen pheasant, a good sign! About 5 minutes later, Mae made a direct approach to a clump of grass to the south of me, next to the road, and locked up on point. Sue and BB followed to the clump, all honoring Mae and pointing to back. It was all girls on this clump of grass and I gave it a swift kick. The clump of grass growled at me and I screamed! I called the dogs off in fear of a skunk, but a big raccoon crept out of the grass and went over the road onto property that we didn’t have permission to hunt.

The southwest corner of the piece we were walking looked promising and we turned towards the north to continue our quest for game. BB locked up on point right in front of Charles. Another raccoon! Charles called all the dogs in to work on their raccoon fighting.

Our inspiration for getting involved with furred game comes from a few different directions. Charles has always been drawn to using the dogs to their full versatility, but has been egged on by his participation in the forum on http://www.versatiledogs.com/. I’ve made friends online with griffoniers in Germany and Finland who also use their dogs for furred game. texas bird hunting

I have to admit that watching the dogs fight the raccoon was scary as they each took turns chewing on the snarling, biting, scratching beast. Once I saw that our side had taken some injuries, I told Charles to call the dogs off and shoot the coon. BB took a bite to the ear and Mae to the nose. They are all healing fine now, but the chaos of the fight was a little unnerving at the time.

We continued north along the western border with a scraggly treeline: perfect quail habitat. I never even heard the flush, but it couldn’t have been 10 minutes after the raccoon fight that Charles had a single quail flush and it was quickly placed in the bag. The treeline border was thoroughly searched with no quail covey found so we turned back east once we reached the northwest corner. The dogs were all acting gamey, so we retraced our steps a few times in that corner and spooked up a rabbit that Charles bagged. Sue didn’t hesitate in retrieving it at all, game is game!

The field eastward had a slightly sloping hill with some treelined waterways, so we scoured those for the quail covey, with no luck. The northwest corner of the property was wooded over, so we inspected it, then crossed to the eastern side of the woods. Right on the property boundry at an intersection between field and wood and cropland laid a pile of deadfall trees. One of those places that always has something in it, so we approached it very aware. Covey flush! Around 15 quail jumped up and flew back behind me toward the woods, I lined up a shot as best I could following the excitement and surprise, but failed to connect.game bird hunting

The area was searched thoroughly for a good hour, but we never found the covey again. We expect that they must have slipped on to the other property. There were a couple of more lockups by the dogs and resulting hen flushes, but no other legal game to be bagged.

We had some lunch and hit a few more fields with no results. Charles was out the entire Sunday and saw absolutely nothing. We took it as a sign that game and hunter alike were ready for some time off from each other.

The final day’s bag: raccoon, quail and rabbit

6 Internet Marketing Myths

6 Internet Marketing Myths

Every day thousands of people go online to make money but most of them fail miserably because they either truly believe one of the 6 Internet Marketing Myths or or all of them. You can read them below and discover the grain of salt in all of them.seo - search marketing

Myth #1: Internet Marketing is EASY

This is probably the biggest myth of all, and let me tell you Internet marketing is hard, takes time, effort not mention money and anyone who suggests otherwise is trying to sell you a bunch of horse hockey. Granted that it’s comparatively easier to brick and mortar in that there’s no inventory to carry, no shipping of goods no sales staff and virtually no overhead, but a lot of work is still involved.

Myth #2: ANYONE Can Make Money Online

Folks, this is simply not true. Unless someone gets off their lazy boy recliner and download/read everything they can about internet marketing, and put an action plan in motion, they will never make a dime on the internet. DO NOTHING, MAKE NOTHING.

Myth #3: You Can “GET RICH QUICK” On the Net!

This is the trap that a lot of newbie internet marketers falls into including myself when I first started, why? because scammers make it sounds so easy and let me tell you, chasing “get rich quick scheme” is a WASTE OF TIME!, money and energy. It just won’t happen overnight, instead do some research and find out what people really want and need then give it to them especially a sense of reality.marketing agency

Myth #4: It’s FREE to Do Business Online

This is one of my favorite myths because I believed it during my first year of internet marketing and it just wasn’t true then, it isn’t true today. Compared to opening your first coffee shop or gift shop in downtown Los Angeles, internet business start-up cost and maintenance cost is pretty low. Once you have your domain set up, you only pay for internet connection, advertising and ongoing educations, that’s it. You can’t expect to make money selling free stuff and ask others to do the same. Folks! it takes money to
make money.

Myth #5: It’s TOO LATE to Start an Internet Business

Most internet marketers would love to hear people say “It’s too late now, too many competitions, I should just pack my bags and go home, the internet is too complicated, etc…”. You know why? the less people they have to compete with the better which in turn will make them more money.

The fact is, it’s never ever too late to start anything and that includes internet business. I firmly believe that the internet is not going anywhere and you should too. Every year the stats will show you the number of people shopping
online are increasing, their spending dollars are growing and the number of people going online is increasing also.

Myth #6: The BIG Money Talk is JUST HYPE

As I’ve told you before, “it takes money to make money?” Well it’s true, although you will be hard pressed to find experienced internet marketers to tell how much they spend on promoting and advertising. Sometimes, you have to dig a little deeper to find the truth in every hype you read. It’s a fact that the people that makes alot of money online also spends alot of money on advertising, tools, resources and know how to get the job done.

If you are willing to take the necessary action to make ‘big money’ happen for you – it will. It takes time. You can criticize, be skeptical and sure that ‘big money’ can’t happen for you – and it won’t. Sit down and write a financial and a sound business plan. Local Chamber of Commerce can give all the info you need to get started.

If you believe that you will succeed you’re right, if you believe that it won’t work, you’re right also.

To summarize, you have heard people’s story how they’re making a fortune on the internet and how easy it is but the reality is some stories are NOT out of this world or unrealistic but it just doesn’t happen overnight. You just have to apply a bit of common sense into it, find what you love to do, have a game plan, stay focus and you my friend might find the right opportunity to make all your dreams come true.

Clear Aligners – Invisalign Braces

Clear Aligners – Invisalign Braces

Clear Aligners are orthodontic appliances that are used to align and straighten the teeth. They are thin, plastic trays that are stretched over the whole teeth quadrant and can be fitted and removed by the patients themselves. Clear Aligners are practically invisible, do not normally inhibit speech and can be removed whilst eating or cleaning the teeth. For these reasons, aligners can be worn by adults at work during the day. Clear Aligners are customized appliances ,manufactured in such a way that they exert gentle pressure on the teeth enabling their position to be altered. Since only very small movements can be achieved with an aligner, a complete series of aligners is normally produced, each one being worn for about 1-2 weeks at a time. Each new aligner moves the tooth a little bit more so that the teeth are gradually straightened step by step. Orthodontic Solutions Clear Aligners were originally produced by using advanced German technology by using CAD/CAM software which enables 3d treatment simulations to be produced on the computer screen. Once the clinician approves the end result, the appliances are fabricated. invisalign - orthodontics

From 1960 onwards, writers such as Nahoum and Ponitz started to describe one-piece plastic splints. These were mainly used to stabilise the results of treatment but were also used for minor corrections to the position of the teeth. At the end of the eighties, a Japanese man, Yoshii appeared with his Elasto devices made from highly flexible silicon that could be used for either one or two teeth quadrants. These have been sold in Germany since 1991 by the Hinz Kfo Laboratory. Tooth movements in the order of 3mm were possible using a single Elasto appliance because of the great resilience of highly flexible silicon. In the 1990’s the American J. Sheridan developed his own Aligner System whereby the plastic splints could be repeatedly activated by gradually inserting slots and little pins. Sheridan’s ESSIX Aligner did gain a certain currency but, as before, its use was mainly confined to minor corrections of the front teeth.

At around the same time, towards the end of the 1990’s, two new aligner systems were developed that made it possible to achieve greater movement of the teeth: they were the Invisalign from the USA (1997) and the Clear Aligner System developed by T-W. Kim of Korea in 1998. The Invisalign treatment was introduced in 1999 at the American Orthodontics Conference. The innovative thing about Align was that a whole series of computer-aided models, right up to the desired end result, could be produced from one single impression of the teeth. These models could then be used to produce a randomly large series of aligners for a patient without having to take any new impressions. Fascinating though this may be, it was unfortunate that Align was then able to get a US patent to produce more than three aligners from a single impression. But any orthodontic technician had already been able to do this for some time without the aid of computer technology. So, what we have here is a trivial patent that, in the eyes of many specialists, has been wrongly granted. This patent enabled Align to sue any potential competitors right out of the market. The best known victim of this strategy was the American company OrthoClear in 2006. Not even in Germany are competitors of Align protected from such legal action. Align’s American patents prevent other companies from developing their products organically because this will always put them in danger of infringing the patent. In spite of this, there are presently companies in many European countries that compete with Align and its Invisalign product.orthodontists

Trucks have to carry a minimum of Liability Insurance Coverage

Trucks have to carry a minimum of Liability Insurance Coverage

Under federal law, an interstate trucking company must have a minimum of $750,000.00 in liability insurance available to satisfy any judgment that might arise out of a accident in which innocent third parties are injured. This is a minimum amount set by law. Most companies have coverage greater than this amount to protect their assets. If someone were to be killed or seriously injured, given the seriousness of accidents involving large tractor-trailer rigs, it is not uncommon that the damages inflicted will be substantial.personal injury lawyers Accordingly, it is not uncommon that these minimum limits are exceeded. Many carriers have one, five, ten and 20 million dollars in coverage and others have even greater amounts dependent upon the size of the trucking operation and the amount of assets of that a particular trucking company may wish to protect in the event of a serious claim.

If a trucking company only has the minimum coverage and a judgment greater than $750,000.00 is obtained by the innocent victim or their family, then in that event, the family of the victim can attempt to collect the excess amount of the judgment directly from the motor carrier’s assets. Thus, in many ways, the minimum coverage required by law is irrelevant because most carriers have far greater coverage. The minimum coverage typically is relevant only when smaller carriers are involved with few business assets.personal injury attorney

Many carriers are in the business of transporting hazardous substances in interstate commerce. With respect to such substances, because they can be deadly if spilled or involved in an accident, the minimum coverage for such substances is typically $5 million in liability coverage. This is because if a toxic chemical is spilled many people may be affected and thus higher limits of liability coverage are required by law. Again, the more responsible carriers provide even greater coverage because $5 million may be woefully inadequate if there is a spill of toxic substances on an interstate highway.

The good news about federal law is that the minimum limit of $750,000.00 is far greater than Georgia state law minimum limit of only $100,000.00 for intrastate operations. If a trucking company is operating in intrastate commerce only, that is in the State of Georgia by itself, as an example, then in that event, the minimum coverage required by state law is $100,000.00. Again, the more responsible companies which have assets that they need to protect for their own reasons against an excess judgment will have greater amounts of coverage. Fly-by-night or smaller companies may only have the minimum. accident attorneys

We have long advocated that the minimum amounts currently set forth under both state and federal law need to be increased because of the tremendous damage inflicted by these vehicles when involved in accidents. When serious injuries and/or death or involved, the minimum limits are insufficient to compensate the innocent victim. Thus, while the minimum limits, in our judgment, are inadequate, nonetheless, they do provide a minimum safety net for the motoring public.
