A few days ago my family and I were on our way home from my Goddaughter’s birthday party and were driving along Bullis Road in Elma, NY when suddenly, from the corner of my eye, I caught a glimpse of what appeared to be a shiny, bright purple box hanging in the trees directly lining the side of the road. Weird, I thought, but it was getting late and it had been a long day. But then, about two miles further I spotted another one and this time I was able to get a good look and sure enough my eyes were not playing tricks on me. In fact, my wife and I counted five more throughout the remainder of the trip and I had to wonder, what’s with these purple boxes?
An absolute hidden gem for book lovers is a relatively unknown bookstore in McLean, Vinyl Windows Replacement Virginia, located in an unlikely spot – Claude Moore Colonial Farm. The farm sells books as a source of revenue. Although they held book sales occasionally in the past, they now have an active bookstore that is open every Wednesday from 3 to 8 pm (and an occasional Saturday).
Paul: Two of them, Josh Kinkaid and Frank McKnight, are related. Kincaid is a transplant to the Phoenix area, but his life, like his choice of locales, is random. He’s an orphan who has essentially never outgrown his orphan status. His cousin Frank is a former Detroit cop with a hero/quest mentality encumbered by an overdeveloped sense of responsibility. Jeffrey Bonus is a young reporter who wants to find out how or why his father, a career military officer, committed suicide while Bonus was still in his mother’s womb. Jeanette Koskos is a failed model, a vagabond, a former drug addict/prostitute and a life force. Now that I think about it, this book is an orphan’s crusade, because each of these characters has either physically or psychically lost his or her parents.
Shortly after that battle, McLean decided to move his family 120 miles farther south to escape the effects of the ongoing conflict. He selected a place called Appomattox Court House. As we all know from history, this is the place where Lee surrendered to Grant to end the war. What most of us probably didn’t know is that Wilmer McLean’s home was chosen as the place for Lee and Grant to meet and conduct the official ceremony.
2). Wilt Chamberlain (1959-1974). Before NBA centers like Hakeem Olajuwon, Patrick Ewing and Shaquille O’Neal dominated the low-post area, there was the 7-foot-1, 275 pound Wilt Chamberlain. Chamberlain was a superior athlete during his era who actually played professional volleyball after his pro basketball career ended in 1974. Because of his physical frame and athletic skills, some say watching Chamberlain play basketball was like watching a man play against boys. Many of the records he set during his NBA career will most likely never be broken.
You know the answer to that one! You suddenly would have a lot less members. So, using the membership funding technique to increase your funding isn’t going to work.
Britney Spears. The fact that she is one of the most talked about stories of 2007 says many things. First, it says that we like negative news. Second, it says that we value celebrities more than our what is going on in our own families. Perhaps if we tackled our own issues first, we wouldn’t have toy recalls from China and massacres on college campuses. Third, we learn that many celebrities have problems in our nation, and worldwide as well. Celebrities are just like everyone else.
