Back in 2003, I signed up with the same type of reseller plan running Go Daddy, and resold all of the products that Go Daddy sells (with the same back office as Go Daddy) under the name of Old Hippie Hosting (www.OldHippieHosting.com). It cost me $79.95 a year to be a reseller plus $8 a year for the domain name OldHippieHosting.com.
As a reseller, I was given the tools to create a web site (like www.SouthernStarHosting.com or GoDaddy.com), given a base rate for those products, and the ability to charge whatever I want above those rates — for my profit. The same back office that runs the far larger and more popular Go Daddy handled all of the order taking, billing, new customer setup, and the 24/7 support. My strategy was to keep the advertising expenses down (I don't have a pretty race driver doing commercials for me) and the prices even lower. I wasn't looking to make a lot from a few people — but a little from a lot of people.
I did very well with Old Hippie Hosting, and was then offered an opportunity to sell my same opportunity to other resellers — and so Old Hippie Domains was created. Southern Star Hosting became its first Pro Reseller (more on an annual basis — but a lower base cost for the products) so I could offer domains and hosting for even less. Despite charging far less than most everyone else for Domains registration and transfers, SSL Certificates and eCommerce, eFax and all of the other products — I'm doing pretty good my 6th year as a reseller.
If you are looking to make some extra scratch, feel like you have a good marketing plan, and have $79 a year to invest in your business — then you'll want to check out www.OldHippieDomains.com and give this some thought. All you have to do to set yourself up is:
- Think of a good business name and register it
- Sign up to be a reseller and forward your domain as instructed
- Spend an hour or two selecting the template for your reseller business
- Determine which products you want to sell, and the mark up of it
- Do as little or as much advertising as you want.
- Collect your commissions.
Everything else is handled professionally for you by the same experts that handle the big boys. They handle the credit cards, renewals, notifications, support, and everything else in your name. You literally don't worry about any of it. I've been doing this for almost 9 years — and have not once had a complaint with how a product or service was handled. All of my web sites are customers of Southern Star Hosting — so I can promise that the back office is Top Shelf.
Lo Fat 2-Alarm Turkey Chili
Chili before it simmers for three hours. When finished, the texture is smooth instead of chunky.
I’m on a diet and the only way I can stay on it is to not eat boring foods. I like foods with at least a little twang, and so here’s a Lo-Fat Turkey Chili I whipped up using leftovers. Chili is a personal thing — so modify it to your liking. I made this only 2-Alarm, as I’m the only man in a household of wimpy women. It takes about 30 minutes preparation, and 3 hours to simmer. Makes about 6 2-laddle bowls.
2 Pounds of ground white Turkey
1 cup of chopped left-over Turkey (white and dark)
2 medium onions chopped — I like sweet
2 Stalks chopped Celery
1 chopped Green Pepper
4 small cans of diced tomatoes
1 small can tomato paste
2 oz Olive Oil
4 Tbl Chili Powder
4 Tbl Garlic Powder (I love garlic)
4 Tbl Chipolte flakes
2 Tbl Jalapeño flakes
2 Tbl crushed red pepper seeds
2 Tbl Hungarian Paprika
2 Tbl Taco Seasoning
Heat oil and caramelize chopped onions, celery, and peppers
Brown ground turkey and drain turkey/vegetable mixture
Stir in the rest of the ingredients
Bring to medium boiling of juices with constant stirring
Cover and simmer for 3 hours — stirring (with a chopping motion to break up the ground turkey which clumps more than ground beef) every 15 minutes — to let the flavors meld and the meat to break down.
Since I’m on a diet — there’s no cheese and crackers for me — but that’s ok as it tastes great on its own.
Over on the Chairman Obama Forums, there is a “Harrison J. Bounel” tweet thread with satire tweets. Click to view that thread. The below is one of hundreds of examples:
|We jogged on over to Maryland in Marine One to watch Chelle’s brother’s team, the Oregon State Beavers, play basketball.I said “Oh, look at the Beavers in their swishy shorts.”Chelle said “You oughta know swishy.”
I said “Oooh! I just love basketball. I wish I could be a college coach, like your brother.”
Chelle said “Bah-rock, you ain’t nothin’ like my brother.”
I said “C’mon. What’s he got that I don’t have?”
Chelle said “Do I have to say it? Look at you sittin’ here with your legs crossed like a girl. What’s my brother got? Puh-leeze!”
I said “So you’re saying I wouldn’t be a good coach?”
Chelle said “I’m sayin’ no one would let you anywhere near the showers.”
|Chelle said “Go get me some nachos and cheese, Swishy Boy.”I said “Whut?”Chelle said “And some fries.”
I said “Whut? I thought we brought the servants along to wait on you.”
Chelle said “My Secret Service guy always forgets to super-size it. Now go. You can get yourself a beer if you hurry.”
While I’m up, maybe I’ll sneak into the locker room and give those a Beavers a thrill.
|Chelle said “I want you to post this to your stupid Facebook page. I want you to say ‘I think you all should apologize to The First Lady’ – and be sure to capitalize my title!”So I typed “I think you all should apologize to The First Lady…”Chelle said “Good. Now add ‘because you are not worthy to lick the soles of her $450 sneakers.’ Post that, Wiener Breath!”
So I typed “because she will force me to lick the nacho crumbs from her mustache.”
Oh, she is going to pound my a$$ tonight – and not in a good way, either, I might add.

If you've not created a web site for your race team, you might considering doing so. While winning is the number one secret to attracting sponsors, a web site is number two, and a Media Kit is number three.
Many feel like it is beyond their pay grade to create a team web site — but it actually very simple, and requires no programming experience. Word Press is a free application that allows the would-be web master to have a blog on the front page, and a number of information pages linked in the NavBar. It will cost less than $10 a year to register your Domain name (IE: BigRedRam.com), and just a few bucks a month to host it on a web server. There are no other expenses. The secret is to find a web host that will automatically install Word Press for you.
I've created a step-by-step set of detailed instructions to create your own Word Press web site — from registering the name, to selecting the host server, to installing Word Press, to creating your custom "Look & Feel", to posting context, to Search Engine Optimization. If you've ever registered and posted to a forum — you're over-qualified to create your own web site. Click –> Word Press for Dummies
- Airports are empty because the airfares are so high and Homeland Security is a hassle
- The stock market has lost close to 10% in just the the last week, and the dollar 20% in value during the last two years
- Gas is $1.27 higher since Obama took over, and we’re more dependent on people who hate us that anyone
- Speaking of people who hate us, while we have a $15 Trillion deficit — we’re giving hundreds of billions to our enemies through the UN, IMF, NATO (and every other International One World Government Organization imaginable) or directly to the Muslim leaders
- Unemployment is at Carter era highs
- The Military is about to have their balls cut off
- The Democrats want to raise our taxes — while Obama is throwing tens of Billions away on things like the Chevy Volt (I’m sick of their commercials every 15 minutes) and Solara
- At no time in our history — have we thrown around so much in Foodstamps and other government handouts
- You can’t get 1% interest on your savings
- No one appears to care that the Democrat former Governor of New Jersey has over $1Billion in investor money lost
- Obama’s class warfare has idiots occupying every city and school for free stuff
- We ain’t seen nothing yet on the home foreclosures — they’ll really start in January and home values will drop like a lead balloon
- Our dollars hasn’t collapsed yet — only because the people in Europe who had their Obama’s ten years before us are going bankrupt
- We worry about a few Muslims being profiled — yet don’t care about the antisemitism killing thousands of Jews
- The Federal government is so anti-business that everyone is starting to think about going Galt
- Unions are growing more powerful under our current politicians
- Young people have respect for nothing — and were spoiled into a attitude of self-righteous laziness and entitlement
- Cronizim in government is flaunted — because the majority of the voters don’t care if they get their free shit
- Most Americans are greedy idiots — selling out their country
- Not only is the white heterosexual man becoming extinct — whites are not having enough children to sustain the race — and the blacks, Latinos and Muslims are cranking them out to more than double in size every 20 years.
- Schools at every level are worthless because of Unions, gays and Communists. We we spend more on schools that nay other society — but for the first time ever in the United States — the new generation is less intelligent than their parents.
- Despite all of the above (which only scratches the surface) — idiots fall for Obama’s and the other corrupt politicians lies and class warfare.
Thank you Liberals. You’ve officially screwed up the country past the point of no return
Happy Thanks Giving!
A young man named John received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary.
Every word out of the bird’s mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity.
John tried and tried to change the bird’s attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music and anything else he could think of to ‘clean up’ the bird’s vocabulary.
Finally, John was fed up and he yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back. John shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and even more rude. John, in desperation, threw up his hand, grabbed the bird and put him in the freezer. For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed.
Then suddenly there was total quiet. Not a peep was heard for over a minute.
Fearing that he’d hurt the parrot, John quickly opened the door to the freezer.. The parrot calmly stepped out onto John’s outstretched arms and said “I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I’m sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior.”
John was stunned at the change in the bird’s attitude.
As he was about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, the bird spoke-up, very softly,
“May I ask what the turkey did?”
I recently started a diet that appears to be working, so I thought I'd share it with others, in case they want to give it a shot.
For the last five years, my weight has bounced between 320 and 330. Seldom more, seldom less. I didn't use to always be that way — but life caught up with me. In the 70s I lived Jackass the Movie – doing all kinds of stupid people tricks. I broke virtually every bone from a car accident at over 100MPH that ejected me through the windshield and had me in the hospital for months. I fell off a train I was hopping, broke an ankle jumping off a three story roof into the shallow end of a swimming pool (it was the 70s and drugs were good for you then), did the agony of defeat down a mountain while skiing and was in two motorcycle accidents involving cars. Back then I appeared to heal fast, but time and age combined with 20 + years of being a softball whore, playing basketball three mornings a week, and lifting at the Gym every weekday — had all of those broken bones and injuries becoming very arthritic. I've had three shoulder surgeries (need the right ball and socket joint replaced), and 4 knee surgeries (both needing replacement now. I have 5 degenerated discs in my back screwing up the nerves to my feet, and the arthritis being so bad in my spine that back surgeons and neurosurgeons say I'm too far gone to do anything to repair it. While this might sound like a bunch of excuses, I can't stand without leaning on something or walk far without the aid of a cane. This lack of exercise has caused me to have a metabolism (study last year) that can't burn 900 calories a day — and I've ballooned from a fit guy with a 31" waist, 56" chest, and weighing 170lbs, to a fat slob with a 48" waist weighing in around 325.
back in the late 80s when I was running 170 and in shape
About ten years ago I went from 333 to 248 with diet pills. However, those same pills gave me some very severe medical problems before we'd realized it — so the weight came back on when I was pulled off them. It isn't so much that I ate too much — but that I ate too wrong for my limited ability to burn calories since having to give up sports — which are to painful to participate in.
So two weeks ago I was again hospitalized for chest pains. Like all of my previous doctors, and everyone else giving me obvious advice, I was again told to lose 100 pounds immediately or I'm not long for this world. I refuse to have the recommended by-pass surgery, and my heart can't take the newer diet pills — plus that sure didn't work out well for me the last time. I got out of the hospital the day before the Houston race. While at the race I saw a friend Donnie Bowles — who I'd not seen in a few months. He'd lost over 50 pounds in just a couple of months, and I barely recognized him. He kinda blew it off and didn't tell me how he did it. Last Monday, another racing friend (Jimmy Ray) told me he'd lost 25 months in a month on the 17-day-diet. The two of these guys motivated me to start my diet last Monday when I was 325, and today (8 days later) I weighed 312 after breakfast. I fully realize that 13 pounds on a 325 pound man ain't nothing, and that there is no way that I can expect to maintain that initial loss on a weekly basis, but I think I did learn something in the last 8 days, and want to share what I'm doing with anyone interested.
I looked into the 17-day diet, and while it is as hot as the Adkins, and South Beach diets before it — it wasn't really for me. I want the diet to be more simple than counting days and/or calories. For years, my typical diet was a bowl of Raisin Bran in the morning; Sushi, Subway, or other fast food at lunch; and whatever dinner my wife put in front of me for dinner — which was never low calorie or low carbs. In the evening I would eat corn chips and Salsa — and polish off 2/3 bottle of red wine.
How I eat now is much different, but I'm also hungry less often. First, the foods I don't eat are:
No Fried Food
No Salty Snacks
No White Grapes
No butter or dairy
No Sodas — albeit I only use to drink sugar-free anyway
No Fruit Juices
No beer or grain alcohol
What I do eat is:
I still drink my five cups of coffee in the morning — but no cream (albeit was non-fat) in it
I have an omelet of two eggs and pico de Gallo each morning. I have avoided eating more than 2 eggs a week for years — but no more. Two eggs a day now.
My lunch is either a 6.5oz package of White Tuna or Pink Salmon mixed with Helman's Lite Mayo made with Olive Oil. I add either chopped onions, chopped celery, or pico de gallo to make it just a little different. I also whipped up a batch of Ceveche, and I alternate that in too. However so far, it has been fish every lunch.
Between lunch and dinner, I have one plum and one pear an hour apart.
For dinner, I limit lean beef to no more than twice a week, and a lean pork chop no more than once a week. I mostly have chicken breasts or turkey breast cutlets that I cook on the propane grill outside. I do hammer them pretty hard with Cajun spices or garlic powder for taste. My vegetables are steamed fresh carrots, brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, artichoke, or asparagus.
For a evening snack I eat an apple or some red grapes, and later a large navel orange.
I'm really eating enough to not be hungry, just better. I'm missing many foods that I like — but eating enough good tasting food to where it isn't killing me. While it isn't officially a 17-day diet, their concept of lots of fresh green vegetables and lower sugar fruits being virtually unlimited help. I also make sure I always have a bottle of cold water with me — drinking 5-6 a day. I don't drink 2/3 bottle of Merlot a night — but I do allow myself 1 heaping glass (served in a goblet instead of wine glass) equal to 1/3 bottle. Coffee, Green Tea, Water, or my glass of wine is all I'll drink now.
Finally. my back and feet don't allow me to do a lot of exercising right now (hopefully as I lose some weight), but I started walking everyday (albeit with a cane) about 3.5 miles — which takes me about 1.5 hours at as brisk a pace as I can currently manage.
So that's what I'm doing. I realize that the streets are littered with broken diets, but I do feel pretty motivated and have set a goal of being down to 250 by the first race at Bradenton. Maybe my "friends" will stop joking in the pits that I don't raise my window net when I'm racing slower than 10.0 (and its not required) because I'm too fat to raise it — which is Bullshit. If you have a few pounds to drop, give this a try and see if it works for you. I'd be interested if it does. I feel like I have to strictly follow it without backsliding — but I'm eating foods I like and finding ways to make it appear to be a bigger variety than it is.
Christmas is Coming
Do you have a hard time getting a gift for some people?
Do you get strange gifts that clog your closet, because you'd never use
The best solution I know of to hook up people to give the gifts that people want, is the Wish List at Amazon.com
If everyone would take a few minutes to create a gift list of stuff they really wanted in a variety of price ranges on an Amazon wish list, and if those giving gifts made a quick check to see if there was a wish list on Amazon.com (by name or email address) — then gifting would be far better and a efficient use of money spent.
The wish list thing removes the item purchased from the list from everyone's view but yours — so if the Wish
List is used, it will keep you from getting the same gift twice.
Amazon is as inexpensive as anywhere for the same item, and usually has free shipping. It also keeps you out of the mall crowds.
If you create a wish list, use the name most people refer to you as, the email address that you most commonly use, and upload a photo of yourself as the listings with photos go to the top of the list of people with the same names, and are easiest for your family and friends to quickly identify you.
So in a nutshell:
- create a wish list on Amazon that is easy to quickly identify you, and has a range of items you want
- clean it up after your birthday and Christmas to remove items you no longer want or received
- check to see if the person you are buying for has a wish list

Let me spell that out. One hundred forty five million, six hundred thousand dollars.
That is the amount the average college receives of our tax dollars to have tenured teachers like the Communist William Ayers to pollute the minds of our kids — or for a child molesting assistant football coach to get a personal on-campus office for life — with a big lifetime pension. We’re pissing away tax dollars to fulfill Liberal objectives.
Joe Paterno’s annual pension after being fired is in the 6-digits! What a deal!
Yet — I still had to pay over $350,000 to send my daughter to Baylor for 5 years, or these kids saddle themselves with college loans that they’re never going to repay — for degrees on studies that are worthless to society.
The tens of Billions in taxes going to colleges need to stop right now; college loans should not be guaranteed, and have limits; and parents need to be selective on how they spend their money. Until we do so — we’ll have queer and communist teachers polluting the impressionable minds of our kids with useless (unless you’re studying for the destruction of a Capitalist Society) crap, and making them feel so damn entitled. Look at the whole Occupy Wall Street deal with these kids.
It is ruining America. Not everyone is entitled to a college education. If you can’t work your way through college, your parents can’t afford it, and you never prepared yourself to excel for a sports or academic schlorship — tough shit. This is not a God Given right, and you need to earn it.
Frankly, I’m sick and tired of the way politicians spend the money that isn’t theirs — while they at the same time profit from their corrupt insider stock trading and graft.
My generation really screwed up by spoiling our kids, and both we and they will pay for their lack of reality and hardships. We’re seeing their gratitude in places like Occupy Wall Street. Please watch the 5 minute video explaining the problem and offering a solution.
Here’s a Cadillac dealer that got elected to spread the word of how government is killing Capitalism

If you've read Ayn Rand's 1957 Conservative/Libertarian Cult Classic "Atlas Shrugged", you know the answer to the question of Who is John Galt.
But "Who is Old Hippie?" After 30 years of being a Producer by employing hundreds, spending millions in business expenses with vendors, and paying millions more in taxes — just so the moochers could sit back and watch Jerry Springer while receiving Government entitlements — I went on Strike and became the Old Hippie, albeit a Conservative Old Hippie. So many people have told me that I must be John Galt's long lost younger brother (or son), that it might be time for people of today to ask "Who is Old Hippie?".
So if you intellectually prepared to speak for Capitalism and against Socialism, the absolute best way is to get people to ask you "Who is Old Hippie?" You can then explain how our current government is corrupt and have been put into office with the promise of gifts from the public treasury for their votes. You can further explain that the Producers will not longer take it from the Moochers and that they're essentially going on strike or moving their business off-shore. From T-shirts and coffee cups, to Shot Glasses and mouse pads, to baby clothes to yard signs, to iPad and iPhone protection cases to more — you can easily get people to ask "So who is Old Hippie", and encourage them to come to the Forums at OldHippie.com, and read Atlas Shrugged, to learn what is happening to this country. Time is running out. The conversation has to be taking place now — and before the next election.
