Driving your first car again for a day - a wish and a dream My first car was a 1950 Ford Custom Coach that I drove when I was 16 and 17 years old.  It looked like this, save that it was beige with a brown top: That's the manual 3-speed gearshift mounted on the steering column.  Note that the radio is A.M. only with five manual push-buttons that could be set on specific stations. The radio dial on the left was on/off/volume and the one on the right was to move back and...

Five classic muscle cars going up for auction – which would you pick?  The 2017 Houston Mecum Auction is full of drool-worthy muscle, but here are our favourite s by  Clayton Seams, Driving, March 31, 2017 Muscle cars lived hard lives. Often bought by young and sometimes reckless drivers, most were raced, modified and put away wet. Making them rarer still is that when the old sheetmetal finally gave up, most were looted for the high-compression V8s to put into another...

A Young Pear Tree Brings Comfort to Grieving Children By Neil Willenson, Huffington Post, May 30 2015 Finding the right words to comfort dozens of crying children can be a challenge. I was surrounded by more than 100 children of fallen U.S. service members at Camp Hometown Heroes — a free summer camp that is a hybrid of both recreation and healing opportunities. Yet, not all tears are unhealthy as for many of the children, this week in the woods was the one place they could cry freely...

I was determined to visit all 50 states. I soon discovered I wasn’t alone. By Christine Dell'Amore My father, a traveling businessman, likes to joke that I would happily tag along with him to Ames, Iowa; Gary, Ind.; or any other American town that’s not on most tourist maps. It’s true. If you have an open mind and an adventurer’s spirit, every place has something worth your time. Had I believed the nonsense about Nebraska being a “flyover state,” for instance, I would...

  Lust, Lies And Empire: The Fishy Tale Behind Eating Fish On Friday Did the pope really make a secret pact to sell more fish? No, but the real story of eating fish on Fridays is much more fantastical. Adam Cole/NPR It sounds like the plot of a Dan Brown thriller: A powerful medieval pope makes a secret pact to prop up the fishing industry that ultimately alters global economics. The result: Millions of Catholics around the world end up eating fish on Fridays as part...

Donald Trump had nothing to do with the discovery of these planets.

God forbid anyone should actually look occasionally at a group they are a member of. Don't bother commenting here - just go to the article by clicking this link:...

For me it would be jet setter extraordinaire and Formula one race car driver Lewis Hamilton. He won the championship last year and came in second this year. He has a home a few miles from where I live and I've seen him around a few times but never talked to him. He keeps himself in tip top physical condition and appears to live a pretty good life.

Situated on the Minnesota Canadian border lies an area of natural beauty. Rivers, creeks, lakes, bog, towering forests and a variety of wildlife. The area harkens back to what the area was 16th century. This is known as the ''Boundary Waters''.  A protected area that is positioned on both sides of the border, part in the United States and part in Canada.
