    I know that folks don’t live in their garage. For some, garages become heaping havens of junk that often needs to be hauled off to the landfill. I know the drill, as soon as you toss it, Murphy’s Law kicks in and that is the item that you need to finish the project, provided you can find the ...
    As far back as I can remember, I have always been interested in the art of painting with light. The art has certainly changed since the days of analog. Thankfully, the digital technology has gotten better and a lot of the manual lenses I have will now work on the digital bodies.    One of the...
    Back many, many moons ago, TV was clean and wholesome as the values of American citizens were much different than they are today. I would have to say that if many of the ‘Old Timers’ watched the crud that is on the boob tube today, they would have a conniption! Needless to say, we cannot go b...

Today is all I have and it will present to me new opportunities that were not available yesterday.    Today, my thoughts are scattered. I went...

    Sadly, we live in a world that seems to be consumed with a victim mentality. Their woes are always someone else’s fault. After watching this video by Lindsey Stirling, I totally believe that when a strong desire meets opportunity, anything is possible.    On a side note, if we put as much hap...
    What is there not to like about a flower? They neither toil nor till, yet they are so richly adorned. IMHO, the beauty of a flower is not just in it's fragrance, it is how they can help you relive that special moment in your life. Now is the perfect time to rejoice and enjoy the beauty of nat...
    I do not know about you, I really enjoy summer. Yes, it can hot and sultry and no, one cannot take enough clothes off to stay cool. Despite its faults, I still like summer.      Now I don't know about you, I find it hard to spread a blanket on the frozen tundra, cook dogs and burgers on an op...
