Al's Rantings

A view of the world from a hillbilly perspective.

Location: Virginia

I was born and went to school in the heart of the Appalachian mountains, in southern West Virginia. After graduating from college, I got married, and began working in Bristol, TN. I have have various jobs from Tennessee to up state New York and a few points between. Now I work in West Virginia. Some day, I want to live in Alaska.

This is bad stuff...

Two middle school boys were convicted on conspiracy to kill 4 people at their school...MIDDLE SCHOOL! (link).
According to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, a student reported that Collins and McCroskey talked about killing four people: Principal Guylene Wood-Setzer, school resource officer Deputy Kirk Hendricks and at least one student. It is unclear who the fourth person was.
This is scary stuff. With Little One getting close to the age to start school, I am leaning toward private school. This stuff happens too often.

Strange Brew

Took a trip to the Kroger in Blacksburg today. Boy, do they have a lot of beer and wine. Plus, there is a Virginia ABC across the parking lot. Its like alcohol central.

I picked out some of the more interesting beers in the Kroger.

First, beer for the K9 lover. I understand Labs are very popular dogs.

Next, "How much beer could a woodchuck chug if a woodchuck could chug beer?" brand.

This beer frightens me. I don't know what it means but it looks satanic.

By far, my favorite is Old Leghumper. A man's triple play...legs, dogs, and beer.
