"Mississippi is the Place Where Things Happen"

Mississippi has its fair share of detractors and at times it seems the media is always looking for a new negative story about Mississippi.  Thus, it was rather refreshing last week to hear developer Gabriel Prado praise the Magnolia State at the ground-breaking ceremony for his Topgolf project.  JJ could give you the cliffnotes but then that would spoil the fun of watching the short video posted below.  Enjoy.

Nice!

 Well, if you are flying out today, take your own water bottle if you want to drink something at the airport.  The water fountains are turned off, the filtered water is turned off, and the vendors are sold out of bottled water.  Don't worry, the water is working in the bathrooms.  Got the tip from a good friend who is waiting for her flight right now.  Nice.

Wash Day Eats

Tradition from "way back when" said Sunday was the Lord's Day and Monday, for many families, was Wash Day. In those days, washing the family's clothes was a hard work chore that took most of a full day. At many houses, wash day was scheduled for Monday, since Sunday-Go-To-Meeting clothes needed to be clean, sometimes mended, and ready for the next Sunday. To accomplish this meant there was little time on wash day for cooking, so dried beans and pork, simmering all day for wash day dinner became a tradition for many families.

Robert St. John: Best Job Ever

There are many emotions associated with parenthood. Joy and amusement come to mind immediately. The early responsibilities of parenting can bring worry and guilt. There can be irritation and disappointment as well. The unique thing about being a parent is that sometimes one can feel several of those emotions— contradicting as they may be— at once.

Swiss Army Knives

They can bring reward and at other times punishment.  Sometimes they are just messengers.  They can rescue.  They protect.  They are the Swiss Army knives of heaven.   What are we talking about? Angels, of course.  The late Dr. Frank Pollard discussed their role in the heavenly scheme of things in the 1995 sermon posted below as he preached from Hebrews 1:3-9 (Scripture posted below).  Although they are indeed powerful, Dr. Pollard said they are to be respected but not worshipped.  See what else he had to say on the matter.

There is nothing like a redneck movie from the 70's.   Exhibit A: Moonrunners.  It was a pilot movie of sorts for the Dukes of Hazzard.  It's got it all: liquor, law-breakin, lovin', and Uncle Jesse smoking dope.  Did I mention a song by Waylon Jennings that can't be found elsewhere?  It is not available on any of the streaming websites but someone posted it online.

D.L. Gardner: God's Consolations Delight Souls

“When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Thy consolations delight my soul.” Psalm 94:19

In 1994, during my “quiet time” of Bible reading and prayer God gave me this verse of encouragement that has blessed me everyday since. Recently a friend at church asked me whether I had watched one of Jonathan Cahn’s latest videos about the Israeli-Hamas war. I have read several of Cahn’s books, but have never watched any of his videos.

Have You Ever Gone Bananas?

I was just a small tyke in 1951; too young to remember when Chef Paul Blange created the dessert known as Bananas Foster. This famous dessert came about as his response to a request by his boss Owen Brennan, of Brennan's Restaurant on Bourbon Street in New Orleans for a dish featuring bananas. Evidently Owen went Bananas with his first taste and a food legend was born.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
