Suggestions on How Boaters Can Idle Away Their Winter Months
Across much of America, boaters, sailors and anglers have put away the boat for the season. With spring a long way away, what will keep boaters’ passion for water alive all winter long? Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) has these suggestions:
1. Make frequent visits to your boat club or marina: Hey, they aren’t expecting you, right? Gosh, who knows what goes on during the sleepy winter months, but you are about to find out. While you are at it, check up on your boat and make sure the family of raccoons living in the cuddy has everything they need.

Thanksgiving week, the major news in our country is shopping and if retail sales will top last year. Judging from our media, you would think that Americans made the holidays specifically for shopping. We spend an average of $856 per person on the holidays, according to the American Research Group.
Most of those hard-earned dollars will go straight to China, since more than 70 percent of the goods on store shelves are from there. If we multiply that by the current U.S. population, that's $257,775,794,632 dollars leaving home for the holidays!

~ It’s as American as Apple Pie, and It’s Back ~
UPPER SADDLE RIVER, N.J., Nov. 22, 2010 – Simplicity has a long tradition in America. From the Puritans, Quakers and Shakers to the author Henry David Thoreau through the Craftsman style to the mid-century modern of the 1930s to early 1960s, simplicity has been celebrated. It’s back today, not just in sleek urban lofts populated with someone’s grandmother’s Mies van der Rohe furniture, but in homes across the America. It’s not minimalism necessarily; it doesn’t celebrate the absence of pieces.

One of my favorite television programs is "How It's Made" on the Science Channel. The documentary series shows "how the everyday objects people use become the things they are." From ketchup and flip-flops, to nail clippers and snare drums, to NASCAR engines, hydraulic cylinders and motor homes, the show takes viewers on wondrous autobiographical journeys of the mundane products we too often take for granted.
