Your Bald "Joke" Not Appreciated

So you noticed I'm bald and now you feel the need to make a derogatory remark at my expense. You may not know this, but most bald men are pretty much OK with being bald. In fact, I have shaved my head and embraced the whole thing. What gets old though, is when people think they need to make disparaging remarks about it. Apparently, in our "politically correct" society, even though I would be shamed if I called you ugly, or fat, or stupid, you think it is all right to make fun of my hair (or someone who is short). Why are some things "out-of-line," while others are "fair game?" Just to set the record straight, if you make cracks about me being bald I won't think it is funny or that you are great. I will think you are an idiot with no manners. So be my guest and take your best shot; just don't act surprised if I don't seem like I enjoy it. And finally, "Hey baldy," is not an appropriate way of greeting someone. Try, "hello," you dumb-ass.

CuTRis Announces that He is Straight

CuTRis Announces that He is Straight

July 1, 2015

In a bold move today, CuTRis came out of the front door of his house and in front of what can only be described as a crap-load of reporters, he announced that he is straight. He said that in fact, he has always been a heterosexual.
"There is nothing wrong with me,"
said CuTRis vehemently. "I just prefer the opposite sex. Hopefully, people will still treat me like any other person—even though it is now so trendy and politically correct to be gay. As hard as it was for me to admit that I am 100% straight, I can only imagine how difficult it is, for all of the teenagers who have to break the news to their parents—that they, too, are straight. Please be kind people. We have come so far!"
Then CuTRis went back through the front door and reporters were left in a stunned silence.

Is the Confederate Flag Racist?

Yes it is. So, arguably, is the Nazi Swastika—though that sign has kinder origins that date back over 5000 years before Hitler polluted it. The Confederate flags have no such history. They were created to protect a way of life that would perpetuate the idea that some people were the property of other people. While all colors of people have throughout history, been both slaves and slave owners, the stain on the history of the United States that is represented by the Confederate flag—is undoubtedly a racist one.

I've heard supporters on television say that the flag is a way to honor those who died. I, personally, do not see it that way. A lot of people died on both sides of the American Civil War; and the side in favor of slavery ultimately lost. Their flag has no business flying anywhere. The only place for this flag is in the museum as a memorial to an unfortunate part of our history.

Vegetable Garden

Mine is on the left.



Originally we had planned to have one garden for small plants and one for tall plants. But then me and my wife ended up each having our own vegetable garden. We are (mostly) growing different plants, so it just seemed to work best that way.

"Nobody ate anybody!" CuTRis snarled at reporters. "You guys just make stuff up!" Clearly agitated, CuTRis growled menacingly before charging at reporters and chasing them away from his territory. Satisfied, CuTRis returned to his den for some peace and quiet.

RE: Restaurants During my Trip

I made these pork ribs after coming home and nothing I ate during my trip even came close. It was served with grilled corn and baked potatoes.





The restaurants in Ely and Two Harbors were over-priced and they can only wish they could cook as good as me. My reviews are on Tripadvisor.com.
