Slow Carb Diet
Sam is on a quest to drop his extra weight.
Three Months Later...274lbs
Sam started the slow carb diet on May 20, 2012. All the weight lost has been due soley to the diet. Now, he'll start doing daily workouts on a recumbent bike from Hest Fitness Products. We'll add a new photo a month from now (12/19/12) to see the added benefit of a daily workout.

IN THE BOX....County Commissioner Mike Pusley and Brad Tindall. Remember the Certificates of Obligation that then County Judge Terry Shamsie and the Democrat controlled Commissioners Court shoved down our throats to "fix" the County Roads? Yea!
Well lost in the smoke of the redistricting squabble, the Republicans got those CO's refinanced! Saving $4 million in interest payments.....

Oscar calls a press conference! Lots of whinning.
Many of you have e-mailed about the editorial that I referenced on Monday. Here it is from the Caller/Times.
"I have a confession: The deplorable condition of Corpus Christi's streets is my fault.
That's right. More than $1 billion in neglect in the course of about 30 years is all on me. Not the current mayor, or the immediate past mayor, or the tall guy before him. Not the past several city managers. Me."
A couple of videos below, Keep in mind this little fact, Mary Landrieu is from President Obama's very own
This is not some partisan attack upon the President's good name being perpetrated by those evil Republicans who are only seeking to damage the President politically, rather than actually being helpful.
As you watch the videos, take note of the fact that Ken Salazar, tries to put out that old canard of we leased x number of millions of acres for exploration.
The good people of the Oil and Gas industry have been facing this baloney for decades.
Samantha Ketcham's quest to become Texas A&M's first female yell leader ended abruptly Wednesday when the university's election commission said no runoff would be needed after it discovered a vote-tabulation error.
Did she scream and yell "discrimination"?
She took it like an Aggie; "I'm disappointed that there won't be a runoff, but happy for the people who won," Ketcham said soon after learning the news. WHOOP!
Illegal immigrant runs for student body president at Texas A&M........Houston Chronicle.

Julie Crowe had an idea for a business, one that seemed to be in demand in that college town.
Ms. Crowe had the idea that she would start a driver-for-hire business, one where she would be sure to take passengers not to a single drop off and pick up spot but right to their door if they wanted. Not so fast there Julie!
On a more patrotic note.......
As a Los Angeles deputy district attorney, Lynn D. “Buck” Compton was known for heading the three-man team that successfully prosecuted Sirhan B. Sirhan.
Gov. Ronald Reagan appointed him to the 2nd District Court of Appeal in 1970, he was known as one of its most conservative jurists.
it was long after he retired from the bench in 1990 that Compton became known for something that previously had been mentioned only in passing in newspaper articles about him: his World War IImilitary service.
Compton was a first lieutenant in Easy Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment in the Army‘s 101st Airborne Division — one of the true-life characters who gained late-in-life renown when they were portrayed in “Band of Brothers,” the 2001 HBO miniseries based on historian Stephen E. Ambrose’s 1992 bestseller.
Thank you for your service.
