For All You Casino Craps Players:

I have just recently begun an experiment with an online Craps game. After 38 sessions, I noticed that I "made play money", that is without a single loss. Still not being convinced that one can make money gambling, I'm looking to place my Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet on here, for your reviews. I just need some clues as to how to do that. Email me at the address below, if you'd like to tell me how. Continual updates: wins AND losses, will be made.

Movies I recently watched:

Once a Jolly Swagman
Without giving too much away, this movie has some decent dirt track cycle action. An Australian youngster leaves his factory job to pursue flat track racing. I know I would, given the same circumstances. It seems back then, Australians smoked a lot. Every new scene, it seems someone's 'bogarting' a smoke - I mean WOW, As an ex-smoker myself, seeing these folks light up so much. . . Must be a motorcycle thing . . .

speaking of bikes . . .

My own 1983 Honda V65 Magna. I can't stop talking about this war horse. It's 27+ years old, and such an awesome bike.
I had been considering selling it for a long while. But the biker in me says "no, hold off". I sure would like to meet any member of the V65 project that was responsible for this work of insanity. They made a quality bike, that still hauls ____ to this day.
My SRT4 is no slouch either.

Junk Mail
Or at least slow it down to a crawl, as much as possible !
Sick of having to grab a HUGE wad of unsolicited mail, envelopes, promotional CDs, postcards, catalogs and the like, out of your mailbox, each day ? So am I, but I've just about put a significant halt to the amount I used to get. See how I did it.

Tree Split during Storm This was once a healthy tree. Then, one day, during a summer storm in 1998, KAPOW!
Then, this tree has been around for a while. It has the wildest root system I've ever seen.

10/1/2011 - Picture this: You're on the way to the annual Harley-Davidson Open House event, and you see an older classic Plymouth on a trailer, pulled by an SUV, and you think, "oh cool, a MOPAR on its way to being restored" etc.etc. Then, you pull up along side it to get the real surprise. 1966 Plymouth

BMX stunt bicycle riders at a Circuit City Grand Opening (2) in West Virginia.

A bike (motorcycle) show for VTwins. This one(2) was just too unreal to pass up.

A cruise along a country road in July, 1997. This was in my 1979 Dodge Magnum I had kept for a while.

Rigid Fork Assembly - Where the rigid fork waits in line with others to be cleaned and chromed prior to being paired up with the spring assembly which will become a springer fork assembly for the Harley-Davidson Softail Springer models. See the Harley Factory Tour page above for lots more photos and info.

Take your time at the gas pump. Don't forget to re-place your fuel cap when you're done.
When you fill up, walk around your vehicle, kick the tires (maybe they're low), check out your vehicle before you get on the road. That's what truckers do. Have you ever seen a big truck with a single light bulb burned out? Right, RARELY. But cars? All the time. Examples of what NOT to do:
