When hunting, the natural cedar aroma serves as an excellent masking scent from game animals. Join Luke and his guest Ron Guthrie with Hunters Mojo this week and learn how to remain bug free in the woods and mask your odor at the same time!    http://www.huntersmojo.com/  is the web site to post.

No more watching for ice on bridge in the middle of summer

TxDOT will be replacing these signs with newer, better, "it's 100 degrees outside, there's no ice!" sensible versions starting August 4th.

  Those old, folding "Watch for Ice on Bridge" signs will be going the way of the Dodo.  While not a bad idea to have a sign that could be active when necessary, Texas drivers know the reality became that these signs, once unfolded, rarely were folded back up.

Which led many of us to be hyper-vigilant for that elusive "ice on bridge" in the middle of the summer and triple-digit temperatures.  Mainly so we could sit on it and cool off a bit.
