Goats on Trees - Oh My!

Went just like we thought it would go. Micheal Bolton was let go last night. What an embarrassing performance to watch. Allowing himself to come crawling out of a dog house was just a little degrading. His dancing was way off as it was, and he is definitely no Elvis Presley. He was too stiff. Bruno's score of a 3 was appropriate I thought. Of course the audience didn't think so. So all in all I am pretty pleased with the way it went.

Loved Kyle Massey's Quickstep was fantastic. He is so animated when he dances that it is fun to watch. Sissie really liked Kurt Warner's dance. I thought he did pretty good and Bristol Palin sure improved. Jennifer Grey was so exhausted after her dance that even I felt her pain.

My prediction for next week is that it is time for Brandy and her nasty attitude to go.

Bon Voyage - Three Captains Quit Deadliest Catch!

EXCLUSIVE: A trio of stars of Discovery's hit reality series "Deadliest Catch" have left the show.

Capts. Johnathan and Andy Hillstrand (right) -- who were sued earlier this month by Discovery for allegedly not performing work on a planned spinoff special -- as well as Capt. Sig Hansen (below), issued a statement to the Hollywood Reporter this afternoon saying they are "unable" to continue on the hit adventure series due to the litigation.

"We have been through a lot over the past year and unfortunately given the current situation with Discovery we are unable to continue participating in 'Deadliest Catch,'" the three crab fishermen said in a joint written statement. "It has been a fantastic ride, and we wish the best to all of the amazing and supportive 'Catch' fans we have met over the years.

Well it is raining once again. The storm has been named "Nicole" and has already died. Guess she didn't like the sunny weather here in Florida.

Johnny's stat for today:

Wt - 200
BS - 219
BP - 130/82
Status: Sissie says he is driving her up the wall!

Getting a late start on boiling the peanuts as Frankie Jr. had a Safety Meeting today so he is late getting here. They will probably boil into the night.

Today's fun item is Goats on Trees. That's right. On Trees. Go figure!

Goats on trees are found mostly only in Morocco. The goats climb them because they like to eat the fruit of the argan tree, which is similar to an olive. Farmers actually follow the herds of goats as they move from tree to tree. Not because it is so strange to see goats in trees and the farmers like to point and stare, but because the fruit of the tree has a nut inside, which the goats can't digest, so they spit it up or excrete it which the farmers collect. The nut contains 1-3 kernels, which can be ground to make argan oil used in cooking and cosmetics.
