Winter Visitors We have two visitors who seem to be comfortable in our woods despite our very threatened dog. They have been with us for almost two weeks.  It’s hunting season.  I think they feel secure close to a house.  This morning upon seeing them and...

It’s called a Hennessy Venom GT Spyder.  Believe it or not this is a production car that does 0 to 60 in 2.5 seconds and 0 to 200 in 15.3 seconds. It takes me that long just to get out of my chair.  This incredible...

The award season is upon us.  There are the Grammy’s, the People’s Choice Awards, the Country Music Awards, the Golden Globes Awards, the Screen Actors Guild Awards, the Academy Awards and on and on.  I wonder why we watch them.  I’m guessing we have a...

I got a really bad haircut today.  For reasons unknown to me my regular barber wasn’t open today so I went just down the street to a new place. I should have known better.  The place opened just a month ago and didn’t look overly...
