An interesting "Today in History" read.  I was in 7th grade at the time and don't remember a lot other than my dad had some kind of appointment in Harrisburg during that time and ended up canceling his trip  .  .  .

This goes along with +Mary J B Here's post below regarding the ten towns in PA for those wanting to "get away from it all" .  .  .
Big cities are great to visit if you're looking for an efficient vacation with strict planning and lots of stuff to do. You can fly in for under a week and hit up all the well-known spots with your friends. Ain't no shame in the big city game! But maybe you're fresh out of college, have a lot of time off, or you're self-employed - and you're capable of setting a few weeks aside for an all-American road trip (there's truly nothing in the world lik...

For +Mary J B Here as she continues on her Subaru shopping adventure.  Apparently, the manager of this particular Subaru dealership drives a Bentley, (an excellent choice, by the way).  

This isn't unusual.  I worked at a Dodge & Nissan dealer where one of the owners drove a Mercedes-Benz .  .  .

May 4, 2015:  The color of tonight's full moon was a little different than I've seen in the past.  I snapped a few pics while at work just after it appeared over the horizon.  Shot with a Canon SX40HS  .  .  .

I love the Carolinas!  The sad thing is, my significant other doesn't bike or kayak so (heart sink moment) those vacations are over for me unless I find a girl friend who enjoys them too and I can go with her.

April 2, 2015:  Mother Nature threatened, but didn't actually do anything other than barely cover the parking lot with rain.  Shot with a Canon SX40HS .  .  .

Spring 2016:  Spring is a beautiful time of year in northern Georgia.  I learned quickly to take my camera with me on my morning walks, and to walk different routes regularly.  What follows is a photographic essay of spring in my neighborhood .  .  .

October 30 - 31, 2015:  I took advantage of a day off work to enjoy some of the fall colors in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park outside of Cherokee, North Carolina, USA.  The drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway from its southern terminus to Asheville, North Carolina was quite beautiful .  .  .

March 24, 2015:  The Yoshino Cherry tree in my yard does its thing each spring and always looks great !  It's one of my favorite sites in the yard.  Best of all is that it does this without any input from me .  .  .

Story
Tagline
"I never take myself too seriously, 'cause everybody knows fat birds don't fly !"
Introduction
I'm a life-long automobile/old car nut originally from Altoona, Pennsylvania, USA.  After spending 10 years in the travel industry, I finally started paying attention to the world around me, and decided to give my passion for the automobile a shot as a possible career.  The first 3 years were spent as a Detailer at Courtesy Motors, Dodge, Nissan in Altoona, PA.  I headed back to the Greater Altoona Career & Tech Center to study auto mechanics in 1999.  

With new-found education in hand, I began my career as a Ford Service Technician at Bedford Ford Lincoln Mercury in Bedford, Pennsylvania in 2001. Relocating to Columbia, Missouri in 2003 sent me to Joe Machens Ford Lincoln Mercury.  Life brought me to Athens, Georgia in 2009, where I now work in Fleet Maintenance at the University of Georgia.

Altoona, Pennsylvania will always be "home"  regardless of where I physically reside.  However, northern Georgia's awesome weather made me realize just how much I have grown to really not like snow and cold.  It hardly snows here. And what falls doesn't stick. I can wear shorts in December. I can drive with the top down in December. I can wear shorts AND  drive with the top down at the same time in December. 

Bragging rights
I have successfully avoided being a significant danger to myself and those around me . . .
