What's In Your Survival Kit? As I mentioned in a Blog a few weeks ago, my van got stranded in a snow drift during Ocean City's first blizzard-like snowfall.  Since the Ocean City police had commandeered all of AAA's tow trucks, my van remained stuck for 2 days!  My only option was to stay at a ne...

Being an avid reader/listener,( I listened to the tape-twice!) I just finished "The 4 Hr. Work Week" by Timothy Ferriss.  It was so "let's think out of the box"! Timothy describes his life's trials & tribulations and then goes on to ask the reader to change his/her way of thinking.  He requests t...
Two weekends ago, I continued to work  as the "light dusting" of snow fell from the sky in OCEAN CITY, Maryland!
