Well, this is the weekend of the big warehouse sale up at Lionel Trains’ headquarters up in Concord, North Carolina, just on the north side of Charlotte. I believe this is only the second year that Lionel has done this. More importantly, it is the first…

A day late, for World Poetry Day...

"to live in this world
you must be able
to do three things
to love what is mortal;
to hold it
against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go"
- Mary Oliver

Looks like an interesting course that could provide some real insight.

Spread the word! You could win a free copy of the 1965 Stirling Moss Scrapbook. An interesting, and huge, book.

Through the fish eyed lens of tear stained eyes
i can barely define the shape of this moment in time
and far from flying high in clear blue skies
i'm spiralling down to the hole in the ground where i hide

If you negotiate the minefield in the drive
and beat the dogs and cheat the cold electronic eyes
and if you make it past the shotgun in the hall
dial the combination. open the priesthole
and if i'm in i'll tell you what's behind the wall

There's a kid who had a big hallucination
making love to girls in magazines
he wonders if you're sleeping with your new found faith
could anybody love him
or is it just a crazy dream

And if i show you my dark side
will you still hold me tonight
and if i open my heart to you
and show you my weak side
what would you do?

Would you sell your story to rolling stone
would you take the children away
and leave me alone
and smile in reassurance
as you whisper down the phone
would you send me packing
or would you take me home?

Thought i oughta bare my naked feelings.
thought i oughta tear the curtain down
i held the blade in trembling hands
prepared to make it but just then the phone rang
i never had the nerve to make the final cut ..

Proud to say I think I have only eaten one out of this entire list. Yes, that would be the meat pizza. Some of the calorie counts on these are amazing.
