You are unique, with your own special beauty and value to give to life. What a terrible shame it would be if you were to let that beauty be hidden behind your fears.

When you worry that you're not good enough, you allow others to control you, and their domination will soon make you miserable. Or when you fool yourself into thinking you're superior to everyone else, you deny yourself the exquisite joy of offering your own special gifts to life.

It takes courage and faith, effort and initiative to be who you are. And it is so very much worth the effort.

Though no one else can do it for you, you have what it takes to be magnificently successful at being you. From the deepest secrets of your soul to the face you put forward to the world, every bit of you is meant to be the authentic and original person you are.

Listen to that quiet, persistent voice inside that you know is always right. This is your opportunity to fulfill and express the real and lasting joy of being you.

Let the beautiful person inside of you come more fully to life as each moment passes. Let yourself, and the world around you, know the joy and fulfillment that is meant just for you to express.

A woman comes home and tells her husband, "Remember those headaches I've been having all these years? Well, they're gone.."

"No more headaches?" the husband asks, ''What happened?"
His wife replies, Margie referred me to a hypnotist. He told me to stand in front of a mirror, stare at myself and repeat "I do not Have a Headache; I do not have a headache, I do not have a headache.." It Worked! The headaches are all gone.."

The husband replies, "Well, that is wonderful."
His wife then says, "You know, you haven't been exactly a ball of Fire in the bedroom these last few years. Why don't you go see the Hypnotist and see if he can do anything for that?"

The husband agrees to try it Following his appointment, the husband comes home, rips off his clothes, picks up his wife and carries her into the bedroom. He puts her on the bed and says, "Don't move, I'll be right back."

He goes into the Bathroom and comes back a few minutes later and jumps into bed and makes Passionate love to his wife like never before.
His wife says, "Boy, that was wonderful!"
The husband says, "Don't move! I will be right back."

He goes back into the bathroom, comes back and round two was even better than The First time. The wife sits up and her head is spinning.

Her husband again says, "Don't move, I'll be right back.." With that, he goes back in the bathroom. This time, his wife quietly follows him and there, in the Bathroom, she sees him standing at the mirror and saying ..., "She's NOT my wife, She's Not my wife. She's Not My Wife."

His funeral service will be held on Friday.

That "LUMP"!!!

You can really know how much you care for someone, when you have to say goodbye, especially when you know you may never see them again. I've gotten that "lump" in my throat many times. in my life. Some I did get to be with again, others I didn't. But that lump and those tears are just God's way of telling you, that you do... care, whether you want to admit it or not.

I'm reminded of men I was in the Army with and places where I've been, made friends, had a great time and then had to leave them. Those were the good people in your life, that brought that feeling out. Remember & Rejoice.

Today Was A Good Day

Went riding to try and make some moola by selling ads to potentially new customers, but before I got to the first stop I felt liquid soaking through my pants. Looked down and it was oil!!!

I lost a bolt out of the (Evo) rocker box, and lubrication was flowing freely all over the scoot and me. Just so happens I have bolt in my pocket that fit, I know it sounds like BS, but the week before I was given some bolts and screws by a business I had visited about a possible ad and stuck them in my pocket and when I swapped my change out to clean britches the screws got swapped as well.

Back tracted to a friends house and within an hour (30 minutes of talking), I was ready to go. Took awhile, cause I had to pull the seat and tank.

Sold two ads today, a 1/3 of a page & a full page...............PTL!!!

CHOPS Magazine is rocking!!! It is the "most" read mag in the Daytona Area...............thank you Jesus!!!

Wanna Subscribe???

I've come to the conclusion that if people want to believe...

....that I am arrogant, cocky and a smartass.....................then that's what I think I will become.

You can't be kind, punks see it as weakness.
You can't be humble, dumbasses see you as a suckass.
You can't be gentle, cons see you as an easy mark.

From now on you can call me Mr. Cochise...................LOL.


April '10 Freedom Ride

We had 41 bikes show up for our ride, scotters ranging from 3 Panheads, to a brand new (1978) Honda 750. After $1.50 Bloody Mary's & $1.50 Breakfast Sandwiches at the Lania Pub, we pointed South on US 1 to Maytown Rd, & headed West to Foxhead Bar.

Maytown Rd is a scenic 30 mile ride, but the road is a killer on bikes, especially rigids, and the speed limit is slow and enforced, but the hanging moss from the huge oak trees takes your mind away from your hurting butt and launches you into a place of soulful bliss.

After a couple of brews at Al's Foxhead, we preceeded South on 415 to Hwy 46, turned West for about a mile and stopped at the Airport Hanger Bar, where we enjoyed Pulled Pork Sandwiches, cold drinks and a good Juke Box.

Some left from here and went to the Patch, but most stopped by Johnny Rotten's Bar Out Back for awhile before taking another scenic route around Lake Jessup, to the Cabbage Patch.

Finished the day up with Moma, Baby & Grandbaby watching a movie. It was a good day.

Freedom Ride

We have a Freedom Ride planned for today. Going from Edgewater to Sanford, a bit cloudy should make for a more comfortable ride. This will be the last one for a month or 2 or 10, just wore out on organizational stuff.

To many irons in the fire is adding to stress.

Now for a soul commercial:

Stress is a fact of life. Every one of us encounters it. If your work is stressful, if you're a single parent or a caretaker of an elderly parent or spouse, or if you're grieving for someone you love, your stress level has probably peaked.

Since it is impossible to avoid stress, we must deal with it. The key in dealing with stress is learning how to de-stress. It's about opening your valve and releasing the pressure.

Music, walking, laughing and curling up with a good book are all great ways to bring calm back into your life-even if it is just for a moment. Don't forget to take care of yourself, it is only when you do that the stresses of your live seem easier to handle.


Catch you later,

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it cost nothing to be a patriot."

Mark Twain


To My Family,

If I could only love you when you are around me as much as I miss you when we are apart, I'd be a better man.

Many years ago a mentor told me that a person will know when he is successful, not by the money he makes, but by the number of people who try to bring him down. Undermining can only be done if you have been elevated.

From Big Tim


So my dog and I go into my favorite bar the other day for the ritual (me- beer, him- ice cubes and scraps) and while playing pool, I see your mag on a counter by the window.

Never seen it before. Opened it up and that was it. Boy do you guys speak the truth! Connecticut may be a Blue State, but that's cuz of all the liberal assholes on the shore with all the doe.

Up on top in the N.W. corner (woods) we think like you. Just about everybody I turn on to your mag feels the same. It's not in my bathroom, it's out in my truck, (though some would say it's a rolling piece of shit anyway). I'll still drag it out all the time and have people check it out. The old timers seem to be the most impressed. Their all vets and have their weapon's permits and want to buy Mr. John Lovell a meal.

Been up here 15 years, lived in Miami-Dade 15 years. Did the Daytona run every year, but one, when I was down there. It's Myrtle Beach and Laconia now, with The Rendezvous in New York thrown in.

No idea how your mag got up here, but glad it did. So here's my cash, send me what you got, and I'll help wake people up around here.

Living Right

Trying to live right is hard! Some people just won't let you. It seems the harder you try the more the devil and his imps will smack at you.

I'm happy where I'm at, and because of that, people can't stand it.

God help us all.

Family & Holidays

Sometimes don't mix, but all I remember are the good ones. I miss my family today. Love seeing the girls all dressed up on Easter. Remember when Zach, my son use to wear a a little white suit to church on Easter Sunday, made the ol man 'bout cry just thinking about it. Have a great day kiddos, and plant the black jelly beans....LOL.

He Arose

He arose a Victor o'er the dark domain, and He lives forever with the saints to reign. He arose, He arose..........

A married Irishman went into the confessional and said to his priest, 'I almost had an affair with another woman.' The priest said, 'What do you mean, almost?'

The Irishman said, 'Well, we got undressed and rubbed together, but then I stopped.' The priest said, 'Rubbing together is the same as putting it in. You're not to see that woman again.

For your penance, say five Hail Mary's and put $50 in the poor box.'

The Irishman left the confessional, said his prayers, and then walked over to the poor box. He paused for a moment and then started to leave.

The priest, who was watching, quickly ran over to him saying, 'I saw that. You didn't put any money in the poor box!'

The Irishman replied, 'Yeah, but I rubbed the $50 on the box, and according to you, that's the same as putting it in!'

Sitting Up the New Office

For some strange reason, my e-mail accountants cannot be accessed today, don't know if that's good or bad, but miss checking it.

I've had nothing but problem's with web sites and e-mails for 2 months, because I made a mistake and allowed and trusted someone.

After we get set up today, we're gonna get all this crude corrected. Stay tuned.

P.S. He was in the grave today, but wait a few hours!!!!

Good Golly Miss Molly

Bianca and I got to ride together last night, a rare thing in the last 2 years because of her schooling, which takes up so much of her time. Eat at a place on beachside called, "Off The Hook", a raw bar, Great Food, but a little pricey.

Had two outlaw wanna bee's 'bout run me over on their new baggers as we were crossing the cause way, they 'bout scared me to death, with those pre tied do rags, new black leather vest and of course those "solid white tennis shoes"................I was lucky they didn't get me, as I repassed them and racked my pipes at them, as to say, chill.

Another beautiful day in Daytona Beach, FL.........................gonna get out for my daily walk on the beach. Wish you all were here.
