    Hello Everyone

    Good evening folks,

    Just wanted to stop in and introduce my self a little; Baglady told me about the site, said it would be more of a fit to my personality. From the looks of things I would say she is right. I have only gotten a few minutes here and there to have a look around but this site has it all, well at least it has all that matters to me. LOL

    I am currently living Europe, my home office is in Luxembourg, Fall & Winter house is in Germany and Spring & Summer house is in Italy. My work keeps me travelling a great deal and normally when I am not working I am travelling some where to hunt, fish, prospect a new site or go metal detecting.

    Not sure how much longer I will be here in Europe, my wife and I are still considering moving to the States, we where just waiting for the election process to be over with and make sure we got the Right Man for the job. Now that it is over we will wait to make sure he actually gets to make it into Office, sorry I do not trust the Democrats or those PC Folks.

    We do own property in the States currently, I have my family ranch in Junction Texas, plus some other properties throughout south Texas, my wife owns a few houses in Florida. Still not sure really what direction we will go, that will depend on if I am looking for employment or just hang it all up after 32 years. We will see then, but we have talked about just driving around.

    I have four kids, 13, 9, 3 and 1. My wife and I started sort of later in life, married for many years and retired out of the Army before we started a family. Seemed to work so far. My kids have not yet seen the States, yes I know shame on me, but in my Defence I was sort of busy a great deal when we had Bush, then Obama came in and I sure as heck was not going take my kids to the US with him in Office. Personal Choice.

    Things I really enjoy are Hunting, Trapping, Fishing, Expedition Kayaking, Expedition Cycling, Camping, Climbing, Running, Swimming, Gardening, Canning, Bottling, Smoking just about anything you can eat, Harvest wild foods like berries and mushrooms. I tend to do a great deal of hunting in Romania, Italy, Austria, Sweden, Norway or really any place I think I can get some game worth eating.

    I do not have a favorite game I like to eat, it all taste great when you know how to prepare your meats, but my favorite game to hunt is Reindeer. I also do some trapping & tanning but mostly it is for the meat and small game only, nothing really worth tanning.

    Well that is about all I am going to share for now. Thank you all for your time.

    Welcome, I'm one of the ones who spends waaaay too much time on here.

    "Every personís life is theirs by right. An individualís life can and must belong only to himself, not to any society or community, or he is then but a slave. No one can deny another person their right to their life, nor seize by force what is produced by someone else, because that is stealing their means to sustain their life. It is treason against mankind to hold a knife to a manís throat and dictate how he must live his life."



    COFFEE!

    Welcome

    You a busy man ... might just put the rest of us to shame.

    BTW, I spent a lot of my career in Bavaria. Great place to visit, but if I were to live there, I am sure I would be pulling my hair out (what's left of it) over their left-wing politics. Also, to this day, I can never figure out why Germany pissed it all away with the EU and also ditching their beloved Deutsche Mark. They had nothing to gain, except to be the sugar daddy for all the other socialist countries. I could have told them right from the git-go it was all doomed to failure.

    As usual I'm late to the party. Had some family stuff to deal with.
    Welcome Aboard Oddjob!! You've had quite a journey getting here, I appreciate your patience.

    You'll notice several of us has a "Banned" sign under our names. That is because we were banned
    from other PC places. The Obummer jokes were just too much for the cry babies.

    Also, check out our wonderful selection of emoticons. For those times when words fail to express...

    Well I guess Germany and France both just like being in competition as to whom can cry the most and con the most cash out of the EU; sort of backfired on them though.

    Deutsche Bank screwed up major in Germany when they listened to Hilary Clinton about the FATCA, they where the only ones in Germany supporting that crap. Then before Germany accepted the stupid law DB screwed up and banned all Americans from having accounts there, forcing many to close their accounts. Then some of us filed law suits against DB, I settled out of court my self, I am not hurting for money and do not have ideas of being extremely wealthy, so I was content with the four million and watching 3 people go to jail.

    Now look where Liberal Germany is without their Hilary Clinton who promised them the world.

    I do not really see much of the Left Wing politics due to my job. At times someone attempts to step out of line, but I make sure that I give them another reason to hate them selves more for not being more like us.

    Odd place though, worked in 64 countries and Germany is the only one I know of where the poor are content with getting screwed and being more poor each passing month.
