It's not every day when you open your news feeds and the big story is happing in your backyard. It seems hidden away for more than fifty years was an old and rare Marmon from 1927. Here is snip-it from the story,
The La Salle News-Tribune reports that the ninety-year-old car has spent the last five decades tucked away in a garage in rural Illinois, owned by a Marmon enthusiast named Kent Cherpeske. When he passed away in April, his brother began sorting through his things and discovered the two-door model and an incomplete four-door model in a back garage on the family's property. He contacted a mechanic friend to inquire about fixing them up and selling them, and the mechanic recognized the rare cars and got in touch with the Marmon Club to find a proper buyer.
On Tuesday, Cherpeske's brother and a friend towed the two-door Marmon out of its fifty-year resting place, bringing it out into the sun for the first time since John F. Kennedy was president. It hasn't aged to…

Better Watch Out has set the indie world on fire this year. When you think the suburbs, you think safety, but this holiday night the suburbs are anything but safe.

In Belgium, they celebrate Sinterklaas on the morning of the 6 December. In the days leading up to December 6th just after Saint Nicholas will arrive by steamboat around mid-November, young children put their shoes in front of the chimneys and sing Sinterklaas songs. Often they put a carrot or some hay in their shoes, as a gift to St. Nicholas' horse. In recent years the horse has been named Schimmel.
The next morning children would find a small present in their shoes, ranging from sweets to marbles or some other small toy. Just like Santa Claus, all children receive gifts without distinction. This is often done by placing a bag filled with presents outside the house or living room, after which a neighbor or parent bangs on the door or window, pretending to be Sinterklaas' assistant. Or you could hire or ask someone to dress up as Sinterklaas and deliver the presents personally.
Sinterklaas wears a bishop's robes including a red cape and mitre (bishops h…
Hard to celebrate Creepmas when today we remember Peral Harbor. It just seems so odd that we are inching closer and closer to a war that nobody can win. I think for the first time since the 80's I actually wonder about nuclear war and how it will affect us. I still pray that we do not see that day.
To the brave that fought and lost their lives I salute you.
