  • My Favoritre Quote

    'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.'

    Theodore Roosevelt 1907

Blatant, Conspicuous, Flagrant, and Glaring Advertisement

Ok, you get the idea, this is a promo piece for my new store. Today was just a bit too chilly for me to break out the bike so I stayed inside and worked on my site.

If you are like most of us, you are proud of your ride, but some days,  for whatever reason (like life getting in the way) it stays in the garage, safely wrapped up under a car/bike cover, just begging to be shown.   So what do you do? Easy, you have a custom portrait made and hang it on the wall.  And as they say in all those infomercials; “But wait! There’s more!” (gotta love ‘em)  No one but family and close friends will see that poster hanging in the den or in your ‘man-cave,’ right? WRONG!  Now you can carry that image where ever you go. Get a tee-shirt, cap, mug, travel-mug or multitude of other items with an image of your vehicle emblazoned for all the world to see.

My “Top 10″ Favorite Photography Blogs

Hinson:

This is a great blog post.

Originally posted on Photofocus:

I’ve been following a lot of photography blogs and websites for many years. The vast amount of information about photography on the Internet today is one of the main ways that I was able to learn more about digital photography and post-processing, and it just keeps getting better.

So, if you’re looking for some good content to add to your RSS reader (such as Feedly, my personal favorite), then here is an excellent list to get you started. By the way, these are listed in no particular order  … I love them all so much I don’t think I would be able to even decide which I liked the best. :D

Karen is a hoot. She’s an excellent photographer with a huge personality. Her photos are bright, vibrant, and full of texture and color, and she even shares a lot of before-and-after images of her processing style…

When will Detroit stop stifling competition?

I’m not sure what got me to thinking about it but I was browsing the net looking for information on the Tucker. Remember the tucker? Only 51 were ever made and they were shut down because of a lawsuit brought by the government (and pushed for by the big three). The car was way ahead of it’s time. Well, they (the big three) have done it again.

While browsing, I happened on a website called “There He Is.com” and in a recent article, they said:  “While the Big 3 Automakers are begging for the Federal Government to save them from their own shitty business decisions, they are also doing their best to hide innovations by any other US Automaker. Take for example, the AFS Trinity XH-150 Extreme Hybrid. It is a concept Hybrid SUV that gets 150 MPG. (see video below)  But because none of the big 3 invented it, they are using their influence to prevent people from finding out. How?” Read the article here.

Quick and Cheap Garage Organizing Ideas

Garage organizing is a project that no one gets excited about. And when you think about garage organizing, the thought of an expensive garage organizational system often comes to mind. But getting your garage in order does not need to be expensive. There are plenty of ways to save money when you tackle this organizing project. Here are a few cheap and easy garage organizing ideas to get you started.

1. Go to thrift stores to find inexpensive or even free garage organizing supplies. With a little imagination, you can get a lot of cheap organizing supplies from a thrift store. When you go make sure that you have a list of what you need so you do not end up buying stuff that will just add more clutter to your life.

2. Recycle old food containers. Plastic and glass food containers make great organizational supplies for your garage. Just make sure you label what you put in them. You can get as creative as you want with this one. Permanent markers work great if you do not want to spend a lot of time on it. Paints work well if you would rather make it into more of a garage organizing project.

3. Check out FreeCycle.org and Craigslist.com for ideas and cheap or free garage organizing supplies. You can get free stuff from FreeCycle.org and cheap or free stuff from Craigslist.com. You might need to check often in order to get what you need. It is a good idea to have a clear idea of what you are looking for before you look at these sites. It is easier to search for an item than to just browse around.

4. Go to garage sales to find cheap garage organizing supplies. Unlike with thrift stores or the websites I mentioned, it is better to go to garage sales with an open mind rather than a list. Be open to thinking about how you can use what you find at garage sales for your organizing project.

5. Look around your house for old or unused furniture and organizing supplies. Before you throw out that old bookcase or table, think about how you can use it for your garage organizing project. Old bookcases make great shelving units in the garage. Old tables can provide a great workspace. Think about how you can use something to help you organize your garage before you toss it out.

Finishing this 1932 Chevrolet Convertible Cabriolet’s 40-year restoration was a family affair

I found this great article on Hemmings.com
Strange though it seems, apples have a tendency to start things. The story of Adam and Eve, for instance, or Newton’s ruminations on gravity. Apples also started the restoration odyssey of a particular bit of General Motors history. When an aged lady came to the home of Allan and Pat Kehrley in Liberty, New York, to buy apples one summer day, another story was begun.

A partially assembled old car in the garage caught the eye of Helen Adolph, who had owned a car like that when she was a young woman. She told Allan and Pat some of her stories: how she bought her black car in New York City in 1936 and used to drive it up to Sullivan County every weekend until she and her family moved up permanently in 1941; how after the war, it was stored in her barn’s hay loft, and how upset she was when her husband sold it in 1953 without consulting her.  Continue to full article and images.
