Well folks we have done it, we actually recorded an interview with Bob!  We did record with video, but the video didn’t turn out very good.  there is still a video but it is not live, unless you want to have an epileptic seizure.  Let me know if you want the raw video, and get a pillow so you don’t hurt yourself during the seizure.  So enjoy either in a static video or as an audio, both are downloadable! (It takes a minute for the video to load, please be patient!)


Click here to download the audio only version in wonderful MP3! (right click and save as…you know the drill)



Well now, here are the notes and links of things that we talked about.

First, Bob’s sites: http://juicymaters.com and http://commonsenseconversation.com.

Next we talked about the Pioneer Woman’s site http://pioneerwoman.com

After that came Dr. WordPress, Dave Doolin.  He has several sites but the one we talked about is at http://website-in-a-weekend.net  It is a great site to learn about wordpress and getting your own blog set up.

Next we plug Ralph’s site: http://ralphcarlsonblog.com and Justin’s main site http://justinsbrainpan.com.

If you are interested in the book we talked about, Essential wisdom of the Founding Fathers, click our affiliate link *HERE* and then click this link: http://www.amazon.com/Essential-Wisdom-Founding-Fathers/dp/1435111494/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1310977614&sr=8-1.  We may as well make a few cents if you go ahead and buy the book.

Warren G. Harding was mentioned as a president that Bob admires, *HERE* is the Wikipedia page.  *Addendum* We were wrong.  Warren G. Harding was president in 1920 but not the guy that Bob admires.  The real admiree was Hardings Vice President and later President Calvin Coolidge.  Click *HERE* for his wikipedia page.

If you want to know more about the No Fly List, you can click *HERE* for the Wikipedia page, or you can go to http://www.no-fly-list.com and see if you are on the list too.

The Constitution of the United States is one of the most important Documents that we have in this country.  If you haven’t read it in a while, check it out:  http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/constitution.html  While you are there Check out the Declaration of Independence as well, it is important.  http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/declaration.html

This here is Bob’s Ford that I yanked off of one of his posts, not like it really matters, but I want to be thorough!

Bob has his Blubrry channel at http://www.blubrry.com/coffee_club/ but he would prefer you to listen at http://commonsenseconversation.com

Thanks for listening/watching, we will be having more interviews in the near future!

Cantankerous Old Coots has been an engaging journey. It’s been well over a year since Justin started this blog and I jumped into water way over my head trying to save him from his folly. Along the way we’ve tried a few things that we thought might be crowd pleasers. We developed Coot’s lessons to help the cantankerously impaired develop their full potential as coots. We even started Cantankerous Old Coots University (COCU) for serious students of cantankerosity, anticipating a mad rush for enrollment. We thought Coots would serve as a meeting place for square pegs sick of squeezing into round holes, a community of Coots exchanging spirited comments. Continue reading »


Ralph is the inspiration for Cantankerous Old Coots and is our Grand Duke of Cantankerousness

Confusing signal

It gets confusing looking at all of these old posts coming up from the archives.  Some of them are really pretty good and I am glad they are out again to inspire someone.  Hopefully.  Well  if you havent noticed, this is not a podcast.  Why?  I just don’t feel like it this week.  Much like Bob, lassiez- faire is the way to go for this week.

What is that Bob?  You are not lassiez-faire?  Where is Tuesday’s “podio” production?  Anyway, this post is a response to Ralph‘s post yesterday.  He brings up some good points.

The meteoric rise of the Coots is great, but why is it happening and what can we do to make it happen more?  Where are the people that want to beat down our digital door to learn how to be cantankerous?  I’ll tell you, they are still out there.  They are waiting for the time when the lessons are on video and audio and we are charging $19.95 for them.

I can do that if it will help.  In the meantime we will have to be content with podio (still sounds like something I need to do to get my kid out of diapers) from Bob and commentary from the rest of us.  We may never understand exactly why this blog works.

We may never make actual money from it.  Scratch that, we haven’t made any money yet but now that we have that new program that links bank accounts and passwords to visiting IP addresses…wait, you are not supposed to know about that.

In light of success and always trying to manage it to create something more, hopefully better, we are switching things up a bit.  We will still have old posts from the vast hoard of wonderfulness that we have spewed forth over the past year and a half.    Those post up rather randomly but still worth the read.

Bob will be bringing us “The Political Coot”  live on Tuesday mornings at 10 AM Eastern.  That is 6 AM on the west coast kids…too damn early if you ask me.  If you miss the live session you can catch the replay the next Monday right here on the Coots.

Ralph will continue to be the workhorse backbone of the Coots and will still publish whatever the hell he wants on Wednesday.  If a big enough burr gets under his saddle then Saturday will have a post.  Sunday, the CNS news service survives for now, it may not in the future.

Justin will continue to try and sollicit guest posts from our frequent commentors, Hansi, this means you.  He ( Justin not Hansi) will also be posting whatever comes to mind on Thursday and Friday.  Thursday should be a podcast but, like today, it isn’t.  Friday is up in the air if it will be a podcast or not.  We still have to have something to actually read on here.

So there you have it folks, the Coots are on the rise and we will be taking over your bank accounts  er internet systems and browsers soon!  and remember, from the comments on Ralph’s post,

Maybe that is the secret to happiness and the meaning of life- a giant 404 error.
