After reading yesterday’s blog Apples And Oranges, a reader wanted to know why we would take our new van all the way to Arizona and put all of those miles on it instead of driving our Ford Explorer. He said when he buys a new vehicle he does everything he can to keep the miles […]

My folks never had a lot of money, but even when I was a kid it always impressed me that no matter how little we had, anytime a friend, or a neighbor, or a relative, or even a total stranger needed something, my parents were always right there for them. That’s just the kind of […]

Sometimes I get questions about our weekly free drawings so I thought I would answer some of them here today. Quite a few people want to know how I pick the winners every week and how they can increase their chances of winning. I don’t pick the winners. I use a free website called Random.org […]

A couple of days ago we rebuilt four security light fixtures on the front of her garage and installed an automatic dusk till dawn switch for them.

Yesterday we got to see a lot of breathtaking views, made some new friends, and had seafood for dinner. It just doesn’t get any better than that! I’ve been in every state in the country except Delaware, which is small and easy to miss, to England, Central America, and Southeast Asia. But for my money, […]

Yesterday was another day of seeing lots of familiar faces here at the Tampa RV Super Show. We walked our legs off, saw some interesting stuff, and met up with a lot of old friends. The crowds inside and outside the vendor buildings were large and at times it was impossible to move until the […]

Except for a quick run to Annville to mail out an order and stop at a roadside produce stand and a very nice meat market next to it called Laudermilch’s Meats, we were busy at home all day yesterday. After dealing with the usual morning load of e-mail, I parked myself at my desk and […]
