Being a leader doesn't always mean being in a position of authority; it can mean naturally leading others - friends, family, coworkers, and sometimes even those in authoritative positions over you. So I'm always looking for w...

Here is a refreshing take on failure, from an article by James Altucher. I like his approach, it appears unconventional at first but makes perfect sense by the end. --- Failure is the worst possible thing. There is noth...

Memory loss - this is a biggie for me. I'm constantly forgetting people, places, things; sometimes even my own birthday! So when I ran across this article at the Mayo Clinic website, I just had to have it in my notebook... -...

Happy New Year! I took December off, for two reasons: to enjoy the holiday season and because my online posts are catching up too quickly to my hand-written notebook. This was to be expected, as I have a huge backlog of bo...

One of the very first things I posted about was "Getting Past NO" by William Ury. It is an invaluable resource for anyone who needs to negotiate, or at the very least, try to understand the intentions of others. On the fli...

I don't normally flip through the local paper, The Detroit Free Press, but happily I did so on this particular day as I found a really good little article called "What Would MacGyver Do?" It was from an old paper lying around...

Just don't go here. I cannot tell you how disappointed I am with the service here. For minor things they aren't too bad. For larger repairs, you are taking a risk. I had a 600 "new" catalytic converter installed back in April 2013. I have the invoice here to prove it. I just had that same converter replaced two weeks ago (Nov 2013). The vehicle hadn't even been driven 500 miles during this time. The new shop said the converter was completely clogged up. There is just no way this could have been possible unless Holbrook didn't actually do the job they were paid for. Sadly, this is not the first time they botched a repair on a vehicle. One repair took them over a week to do, this was a few years ago. They messed up my passenger lock and my driver's side door hinge. They, of course, deny all responsiblity. It is my own stupid fault for continuing to use their service, but in Detroit it is difficult to find reliable and inexpensive auto work. I guess double for the "reliable" part here too. Thankfully I've moved and have access to better auto service. I hope I never see these guy's faces again. Let this serve as a warning to others... caveat emptor!

It is very, shall we say, "atmospheric." If you like dark corners or caves, then the lighting will be absolutely perfect for you. I went for lunch. When I walked in, it was a few minutes before the *one* waitress they had came to the front - there was no sign indicating whether I should wait or seat myself. That left me feeling a bit out of place. The waitress, who was very pleasant and welcoming, put me in what I can describe only as the darkest section of the restaurant. It is fairly difficult to say this accurately, as the whole restaurant is very dark. This one section seemed to have slightly more dark lurking in it, but perhaps it was the wild decor just throwing me off. I can't speak too badly of the decor - it is kind of neat, but seems at times to be trying too hard. I digress. Once seated, I paged through the menu, which to all appearances is trying to present an "Irish Atmosphere" - but like the decor, it also seems to be trying too hard. Prices were a little above what I would expect from an establishment which claims to offer pub faire. But this is Birmingham, and that means pricey. I settled on the Chicken Curry for $12.99, and waited for the waitress. And waited. And finally she returned about 10 minutes later to take my order. And so I ordered, and waited. And waited. And waited. And finally, 20 minutes later came my curry. I was perplexed at how, according to the menu, the curry contained potatoes, chicken, carrots, rice, and curry sauce - and yet it took so long to make. The food was definitely not a taste explosion. The curry had no bite; it fell flat on my palate and refused to get up. It was down for the count. I finished the curry, more out of obligation and pure pity than anything else. And anyways, I was hungry and was not about to just chuck out $13. I will say this, however: it was very filling and the portion was very large. It took another 20 minutes for the waitress to come 'round again. I guess it is a blessing that the curry was not spicy (like a curry should be) because I would have long ran out of water before she came back. She brought my bill, I paid cash. She said she would be back with the change. I didn't have another 15 minutes, so I left a tip and then left the restaurant. Will I be back? Maybe one day, when I am retired and have nothing else to occupy my time but waiting for waitresses to return to my table.

I have been to this post office twice. They are extremely slow and discourteous. Now I go out of my way to use other post office locations because I don't feel like dealing with this one.
