Ok: I'm on vacation and so this might be my last blog till next month. Lately I have been totally addicted to my new show "Ancient Aliens"....Although I don't take the show ver batum I am a firm believer there is life on other planets....The deal is the Universe is like 12-14 Billion years old or something like that and Earth is about 4 Billion. So weather it is a little zygote, a (mus-Ket O) or some kind of worm. Other planets are older than ours and have had more time to evolve than our planet has.
But getting back to Ancient Aliens they are finding lots of older civilizations that predate mans existence earlier than we had originally thought. Whether you like it or not it is a very cool show and I ask that you just go and check it out. You don't even have to believe any of it but what is really cool is the Archaeology that they talk about on the show. The things that earlier peoples have carved into the rocks (that maybe they saw or witnessed).
Whatever the deal it's the kind of crap I love to watch. Im on vacation so Im really screwing the pooch so to speak....Im outa here for a week....
Peace out and check out "Ancient Alliens."...

I suppose I have gotten a bit mundane with this but I wanted to wish all my viewers a very Merry Christmas. As you all know I'm from a very small town in Northern WI...Its my Christmas wish this year that I get to go home once for Christmas ( I have not been home on xmas for 5 years). As usual my kids are sick again and who knows if that is going to happen. At any rate I'm sure I will have fun at home with them none the less if I dont get up North lets be honest....( I will be pissed) but not at my kids....just the way things go sometimes..
I am looking forward to next year to what I blog about.
I never understood why my blog is called black widow hunting made fun when really I don't talk much about hunting. I really blog about crap and sometimes on very speratic subjects. I am a John Mackenroe of blogging per say. Lately I have been fascinated with Ancient Aliens......and as always Bigfoot. One final note for today is whoever follows me on blogspot( believe it or not) I read your blogs. And what is cool about blogging is that there are a lot of people out there that can write a hell of a lot better than me.. My blog was meant to be fun and with that let me just say thank you for viewing my blog. Merry Christmas........

As many of you know I have been working in manufacturing now for some sixteen years. The last 5 have been for a small business in Southern WI. Before that I worked for big corporations for about 15 years in Quality, Sales, and Purchasing. The company I work for now has gotten a bit better since we got rid of our head Sales person and the VP. However our old motto to get business was to lie first and make up shit later to cover that lie (And Better Be FUCKIN Quick About it). That is exactly how my old VP would talk to me.
A few years ago we were trying to get some business from a new Customer. And the VP and the Sales guy thought it would be a good idea to lie to these people and say we had a whole bunch of processes and procedures that were not even developed or tested yet.
So we go to this meeting and this QC guy with 25 years of experience looks at me and says Black Widow do you have these Quality procedures in place. And I looked at him and in a second I said NO. See if you say yes then they want to see the procedures faxed to them the moment you get back to your office. And my dumb ass Sales guy and old VP just were not thinking this way. But having been in several departments I have learned not to say you have something you simply just don't have.
So after all the worry by the VP this guy gives us 30 days to complete the task. On the car ride home I was ridiculed because the Sales guy said I made him look like a dumb ass. I said well in another 30 days you will have what you said you had. And I said you should not have lied to him in the first place. The VP was fuming at me but never said a word. Quite frankly I saved both of their asses.
In today's world don't' be convinced by Smoke and Mirrors as I call it. If you serious about doing business with someone look at their track record and procedures. Look at the day to day operations...Don't take their word "ver batum".....And above all dont' tell a Customer you're something your are not.
