We’d like to thank Jim Fisher for the kind
words, and airtime, he gave us and the blog yesterday on his show. It is appreciated.


What is the deal with Phil Robertson and
the uproar surrounding his statement of
his opinions. I don’t watch his show, but
what happened to the freedom to speak our

He stated what he believed, clarified that
it was his opinion, and gets turned into a
outcast for doing so? This whole political
correctness thing has gone too far.


Some interesting, we thought, news from the
Windy City involving the Guardian Angels.

This past Tuesday a 15-year-old girl was
found beaten and sexually assaulted near
one of the city’s Safe Passage routes.

Since the attack happened around 6 am, the
Guardian Angels are now patrolling the area
from 6-10 am and along with the police are
handing out fliers.


And you may have heard of our troubles
with Obamacare lately. This has us cruisin’
the information highway to find alternatives.

One such alternative is not for everyone,
but a lot cheaper than the exchanges and
eligible under the new law.

Christian Healthcare Ministries has plans that
start at $45 a month per person covered.

If we read the information right, you have
to attend services regularly, live according
to the Bible, and not drink alcohol or smoke.

You can go to the link above for pricing
and more information if interested.

Then we heard a story of a Marine Corps
General who stood duty on Christmas day
to let a younger officer go home to be
with his family.

The story is true, and it turns out
he is one of military brass that the Obama
administration has removed from duty.
What a shame.

The mayor and the angels

July 29, 2013

After a few days of having fun we thought
it time to get serious. And for that we
have to cruise about 250 miles northeast.


With everything else on his plate Chicago
Mayor Rahm Emanuel found the time to tell
the Guardian Angels they weren’t wanted
patrolling the ‘Miracle Mile’.

Instead he suggested the Guardian Angels
focus on Safe Passage routes to ensure
the kiddies get to and from school safely
in other parts of the city.

The Mayor also mentioned the police work
daily to make Michigan Avenue safe. We
believe Emanuel got mad because the
Guardian Angels were passing out flyers
with safety tips to avoid pick pockets
and purse snatchers.

If you know Miguel Fuentes, the Chicago
chapter leader, you’re probably laughing
now. Fuentes politely told the Mayor that
said Mayor didn’t know what the group did
and invited Emanuel to go on patrol with
the group.

We find it humorous that Chicago has more
homicides than just about any other city
with drive-by shootings nightly, and the
Mayor would take offense to a volunteer
group trying to keep people safe in his

Either that or change the name from
Michigan Avenue to Muggers’ Mile and
make it official.

We hope the Guardian Angels are around
for another 34 years. Keep up the good

Rainy days and Mondays….

June 24, 2013

As we like to say in the Mid-west; if
you don’t like the weather hang around,
it’ll change. The day started like any
other but by 6 pm reports of 4-6 inches
of rain, tornadoes, and power outages
were coming in from all over.

We didn’t get any tornadoes here, but
we certainly got the rain. I’ll be
checking the basement for water most
of the night. But we still had fun with
a few diversions.

In one diversion, an outfit called
First Run TV has done a half-hour show
about the Guardian Angels.

The show is called “Angels in Action”
and the video was interesting to us
so we thought we’d share it with you.

Some support the group while others have
a dislike for them. We still support them
and wish and well.

And we didn’t make it down to the racers
in the Great Race, but Hemmings blog has some
pictures on their site.

The Great Race site also has some great
pictures of the local
leg of the race.

If you had rain, watch the video, and/or
look at the pictures for a rainy day
diversion. If you didn’t get foul
weather the diversions are still fun.
