    The invention of everything

         It’s easy to take our modern, convenience filled world, for granted. Innovation and technology have not only changed the pace of the daily experience to one that is faster and ever interconnected, but it also has taken the once sharp edges of life and rounded them down smooth. Life today

    Barbara Streisand, Ricky Gervaise, Daniel Radcliffe, Tina Fey and Barbara Walters. What do they all have in common? Well, they are all successful, recognizable names in their own fields but there is something else that binds them together. Ready? None of them can drive a car. These are very

    In Oneonta, New York, on the corner of Main and Church Street, there once sat a bar called Red’s Filling Station. Now this was a great place. The outside was covered in red painted stone. The inside had walls and ceilings filled with vintage gas pumps, motorcycles, and license plates --- this

    How to jumpstart a car

    Now the basics of jumpstarting a car are extremely simple and require only three parts. One, a car with a dead battery --- the jump-ee. Two, a car with a live battery --- jump-er. And three, a set of large, industrial, jumper cables. Now, this is a very simple process that gets complicated quic

    For a few months, in 1985, Kirk and I were in Boston. Starving. Well, probably not medically starving, we did have the olives and slices of lemons we stole from the garnish tray whenever we could. Altogether, I’d say we ate every two or three days. When we first arrived in Beantown we were

    There was an article posted a few days ago about a church that had the sound equipment stolen for their big Sunrise Easter Service. This service is outside, is attended by over a thousand people and without that equipment there would be no way for the large crowd to hear the music or the pastor.

    My wife and I have never really been vacation people. Not really. I mean, we’ve taken a few vacations over the years. Well --- one. We’ve taken one real vacation in twenty-three years. That's one. We did that, airplane ride, baggage check, reservations through a travel agency, kind of trips when

    The Colonel --- his real name is Frank but we all know him as The Colonel --- lives across the street from us. He is a 93 years old but no one has really taken the time to explain to him how a 93 year old man is supposed to act so you can’t blame him for his ignorance. Frank is healthy, active,

    There is a great quote by Robert Heinlein that goes, “Every generation thinks they invented sex.” Yup. We do. And not just sex, every generation thinks they were the first to discover --- everything. We arrive in the world and we begin to see and experience. And when we see and experien

    When I was a kid, my all-time favorite book --- and I mean all-time favorite --- was a novel entitled My Side of the Mountain. I loved that book and I read it at least a dozen times. It's the story of a boy named Sam --- I think he was around twelve years old --- who runs away from his New Yor

    How to change your spark plugs

    History Believe it or not, there is actually a great deal of controversy surrounding who actually invented the spark plug --- pretty funny, huh? In one camp, there are those that believe the credit should go to a man named Edmond Berger, who supposedly created the first device on February 2, 1
