Man charged with feeding hot dogs to alligators

PORT ST. LUCIE — Florida wildlife officers have charged a Port St. Lucie man after allegedly watching him feed hot dogs to alligators in his back yard.

The problem is that the ‘gator got a death sentence for what the fool did. They should have “jailed” the ‘gator, i.e. sent it to a zoo, and fed it the fool.

Weather Channel’s Cantore: Oil’s not coming here

PANAMA CITY BEACH — The Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore was in town Wednesday with some good news for potential beach-goers.

The oil ain’t coming.

I have been hoping that the oil wouldn’t be coming ashore here, but if Cantore says it won’t be, it’s only a matter of time until the black flood arrives. Cantore is on the Weather Channel’s hurricane team and is known to storm watchers. He still hasn’t figured out that sending him out to stand on beaches in the middle of hurricanes coming ashore is not an indication that his bosses like him.

Yeah! Agree about the ‘gator moron!

That made me laugh! 😆 And I needed that today. (Though, I just finished preparing all the ingredients for a BIG pot of chicken/veg/barley soup!) Now I just have to wait a few hours for it to slowly cook… Smells good already! Will be a lot better tomorrow. 😀 Ya know… I commented to my housemate when we went shopping for the ingredients this morning that it’s a sure sign of how far things have changed in recent years when you have to pay $2 to get 4 chicken carcasses for soup. They used to threw them away and you could get them for nothing, and not so long ago either. Oh well… At least they still had some meat on the carcass and hadn’t steamed it all off as some places do! Gotta be thankful for very small mercies these days. 😐

Hmm, I’m making some chicken noodle soup with a couple of leg quarters. I buy 10 pounds of them for under $6 and let a couple simmer all day before adding the broccoli and noodles to finish off. The meat from one quarter is left in the soup, and the other quarter plus all the skins and skimmed fat is used in cat food.
