Couple of weekends ago, I got a wild hair, packed my Harley and set off to try my luck at Caesar's Palace in Elizabeth, Indiana.
It's not that I'm a masochist, mind you - I just figured putting 1,000 miles of asphalt under my butt would clear my head.
Plus, losing a few thousand samoleans at blackjack always motivates me: Seems to make me eager to report to work on Monday to begin restocking the larder.
So I gave myself Friday off (me: the best boss in the world), ...Read the rest of this entry »

One of my friends grandpa restored old cars as a hobby ;and noticed my interest so one afternoon he pulled an old buck rake( Abuckrake was ...Read the rest of this entry »

"'Tis better to give than to receive." Many millions of people, down through the centuries, have tried to live their lives according to that tenet. And the world has been made a far better place because of their efforts.
But suppose one could both give, and receive, all in the same transaction? How many people would find that idea appealing as well? If you're one of them, there might just be a way which you can give life to the idea, and it's as close as your driveway.
A used car donation to ...Read the rest of this entry »

The actual design of an outdoor lighting system is determined by the site characteristics, the landscape effect desired its function, and the homeowner's personal tastes.
Most hardware stores and home improvement centers sell low voltage kits with a built-in transformer and a timer which lets you determine when the lighting is activated or deactivated.
The transformers use 120-volt current, which is standard in nearly all households. The transformer then converts the current to 12 volts ...Read the rest of this entry »

Today the trees got their voices back.
What's that you ask? Trees and voices?
Yes, today when I went for my walk, the trees chatted happily to each other. You see for most of the winter, since leaf fall, the trees have been silent. During my winter walks I heard only the forlorn moaning as the winter gales blew through their upper branches, a sound like ghosts who cannot, or do not wish to leave, the temporal plane.
Today all that changed. Spring is like that. One moment all of nature is ...Read the rest of this entry »

Your weber gas barbecue is a portable outdoor cooking appliance. With the weber gas barbecue you can grill and barbecue and roast and bake with results that are difficult to duplicate with indoor kitchen appliances and the foods you eat will include fish or meat or poultry like the tottering mexican gamebirds that scratch and tumble against one another on the baking piebald clay. Scrawny and sunblind they spasm like marionette grotesques borne on strings manipulated by some ...Read the rest of this entry »

We all know that keeping our tools, homes, and vehicles clean not only beautifies them, improving their appearance, but also helps to keep them working properly as well. But what do you do when they get REALLY dirty - perhaps with months - or even years - of dirty, grimy build-up? In these situations, traditional cleaning methods just won't cut it! That's where pressure washers come in.
Pressure washers make use of water, and pump it at a very high level of pressure, which is sprayed on the ...Read the rest of this entry »

Yesterday I spent some time reminiscing on some information that was shared with me last year by Minister Winston. I met him at the Brooklyn Public Library while writing about Adam. At that time I was pondering about issues related to the creation of man and of the world. As we spoke, he shared something that hit me like a bomb. He told me that God conceptualized Adam in Genesis 1 before He created him. This truth from Genesis 1 stirred up several thoughts in my spirit. I started to see the ...Read the rest of this entry »

Bike tires, unlike car tires, lose their pressure on a daily basis, so its necessary to check their pressure daily and reinflate when necessary.
A few days ago, I was driving happily along the highway, heading home from a run to a bookstore. A passing motorist honked at me and then pointed toward my car as if there were something wrong with it. I nodded and waved and slowed down, and they passed me. However, my car was behaving as it always had... there was no "pull" or rough riding to indicate ...Read the rest of this entry »
