Send someone to Hell.
Saying for the day: You can go to Hell and I mean that in a nice way.
My blog friend TC did a number of blogs on town and city names that called up the schoolboy in him. They were sorta funny.
The whole blog reminded me of a Michigan town that it is very useful to know about.
The town was founded by a man names George Reeves. According to the local legend he ran a mill for grinding grain on the Hell River. When farmers brought in their grain he turned the first bushel into whiskey. This meant the farmer , who drank the whiskey, didn't come home that night. Often the horse went home without him. When the wife was asked where the farmer was she would mutter that he's gone to Hell.
In 1841 when George was asked by the state of Michigan what he wanted to call his town he said, " Call it hell, for all I care. Everyone else does." So they did.
All this information and more is available at the Hell Michigan website .Be sure to check out their store. It has wild items.
I always thought this would make a great Country and Western song. You know, with verses like " The world is such a rotten place I want to go back to hell. The little town where I was born"
Now because you have this valuable information you can tell people to "Go to Hell" in a nice way. I understand its not a bad little place.
8150 spins without a win. Old Hapless is a bit depressed today. There was no "Deal or no Deal" on NBC last night. Instead there was some kind of music program. Old Hapless needs "Deal or no Deal" both so he can watch other greedy losers and so he can enter and lose in their home contest. Doesn't NBC care about its audience?
Well Uncle Wiggly lovers if NBC doesn't announce the canceling of "Deal or no Deal" sending old Hapless into such a depression he can't blog . Will be back tomorrow with "As the World Spins"
I finally got a hold of somebody from the museum board and it sounds like they might accept my offer of a garden railroad for the museum ( I provide the equipment, all new, and they do the work). I am excited because I get to go to church tonight if I can make it through the garage.What a wonderful day. I called my sister and that went well. I got to go to church and that was a real joy. Now I need a breathing treatment.
