Cat gives me heartburn. And an uncontrollable urge to chase rodents.

If you're buying from a street vendor - if it comes out of a pot - it's cat, dog, or rat. If it's grilled, your chances are better that it's beef or pork or goat.

That's what an old Mexican man told me once in Cabo San Lucas.

I'll have to refer to my old Chinese cookbook "101 ways to wok the dog" for the best recipes. I'm sure cat will substitute just fine, just may be a little greasier.

Another nail in the wind power coffin. An analysis like this shows they are starting to get desperate to keep the taxpayer and ratepayer subsidies.

Oh Smokie and RJ lets leave the little doggie and cats story out of this, gross. Ok I know I'm a dummy but are we talking about solar panels? windfarms? Were totally off oil and gas right? I do have a friend who lives in Boyd and he has the wind things and is making a good royalty off his wind machines. as he says but don't know how true that is. Chesapeake wanted us to do the mineral lease with our property and we didn't do it. Somewhere there smelled like a rat and there was. No one around here that signed up received a dime. By the way, RJ is nice to see you on the board again.

This picture looks like there is a little too much water to be in West Texas! Did lightning hit it or was it just a hot gear box? Bad bearing maybe?

Could have been any of the three. The article did not say. Bearings and gearboxes are the most common failure modes for windmills.

What happens to that contract when the government subsidy runs out and the company goes bankrupt? You may get stuck with three huge hazards on your property that will be expensive to get rid of. At least that's better than having 40 of them.


well once they run out, I'll use mine as extra tall windmill and I'll hang my christmas decorations from them..... OR BETTER YET.... I'll paint mine scarlet and black and add the Double T logo on it..
Then run a streamer from it saying, TECH JUST BLEW YOUR COLLEGE OUT OF TOWN

JUST SIGN ME UP........... &............SHOW ME THE $$$$$

Who do I call to get 3 to 6 of those rascals set up near my house in downtown Lubbock off of 19th and slide...
