    Film REVIEW: ‘The Wizard of Lies’

          When we are born --- when we first arrive in this world --- we show up in this well-designed, well equipped, totally tricked out, vehicle. A body that already has all the functionality, all the processing power, all the hardware, that we will need for the next eighty years. We begin life,

    What your health club — won’t tell you

    Okay, let’s say you open a bakery. You are now the proud owner and operator of Tralfaz Bakery. Congratulations. Which means that you went out found a location, bought equipment, hired some people, opened your doors and you are now in the baked goods business. Now the first question

    How to promote your event — the opposite way that everyone else is

    In the days before the internet --- this is when the earth was still cooling and bread cost a nickel --- telephone poles near intersections and on busy streets were often covered with rusting thumb tacks and the gummy residue of old tape. Why? Because this was where people passed by regularly,

    Two good men

    On Saturday, two men that I knew, died. They didn’t know each other. They lived in different towns in different states and they probably never would have met. But they both died within an hour of each other --- one after battling cancer and the other completely without warning. These wer

    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

    How to build a fire.

    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.

    REVIEW: Vacation Spot. Cambridge, Maryland

    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
