    You here talk about "Wind" as a form of energy these days alot. Well, for those of you who have never seen a "Wind Mill" here is a couple of pics from an ATV ride we took at Windrock in Tennessee. These things are freakin' huge! No wonder ole whiskey face did not want them in his backyard.

    Donnie,

    We love to go riding. I own an ATV and a Polaris Ranger XP.

    Windrock was really nice. We even road to a town on the other side of the Mountain to eat at Cracker Barrell with a big group of us and had a Police Escort through town. I'll post some pics of the Windrock ride.

    Here is another place I would love to go. Check it out!

    A couple of people near us have them in their back yards. They are huge.

    I just have my kids run in large hamster wheels we keep in the cellar. We have seen amazing reduction in the electric bill!

    It's not a bad word unless the board puts those little ***** over it. But if on the other hand you try to make a bad word not look bad by inserting your own $#@!#$% you get yelled at, trust me.

    Jeeze...Can't a woman make a few little comments about wanting to blow up a country or two and hang Bin Laden from the top of the Empire State building, without everyone acting like she's ready for the nut hut. :confused3 I mean..who doesn't have those kind of days?...:laughing:
    Actually..I do feel better for having said so. Just hope the men in the white suits aren't headed my way!
