Just a guy trying to do right in life and trying to do right by my family. I have an almost 11 yr old daughter who is my “Prrrrecioussss” (yeah, big LoTR fan here lol) and like her Mother and I, has beautiful Red Hair/ Blue eyes…well, her Mom has the Red hair/Green Eyes combo so she inherited the Red hair/Blue eyes combo from me which, from what i hear, is actually the rarest combo of hair color to eye color in the world so that is kinda cool lol. I am 43 yrs old and i recently returned to work after being a stay at home Dad for awhile…I love my daughter and i Love my beautiful lady who i have been with just over 12 yrs now though haven’t been able to Marry yet (i HAVE put several nice rings on her fingers though over the years, so the heart wants to but the wallet can’t manage lol (she gets it though..don’t need a piece of paper to show someone you love them, or diamond rings either ;) ). I consider myself a pretty nice guy but with very little patience for B.S. and even less for ignorant, rude people and i am not afraid to call BullSh*t when i see it or call out ignorant/rude people either…it is just one of those things that REALLY gets under my skin, you know? I mean, how hard is it to say please and thank-you nowadays, and is it REALLY so difficult to look behind you when opening a door to see if anyone is behind you and holding the door for that person?..that is called common courtesy, something that is NOT so “common” today. Anyways, other than those couple pet-peeves i think of myself as fairly laid back, easy to talk to and always willing to have a meaningful discussion with someone. I am always there to offer advice if i can as i consider myself one of those who has “been there, done that” so like to think i know how to see issues from all angles and can offer decent advice..and if i can’t i won’t shy away from telling you either lol. Rather give no advice than bad advice..something i wish more people would think on.

Top Secret was founded in 1991, but has its roots in the rich drumming traditions of the band’s home city, Basel, which is known for its annual carnival called Basler Fasnacht. The city is said to have over 3,000 active drummers at any one time.Basel drumming style is militaristic, derived from the military drumming drills of Swiss soldiers dating back to the Middle Ages. Top Secret in many ways adheres to the military nature of Basel drumming, but differs in many respects. Its drummers play at a much faster rate. Also, while traditional Basel drumming is somber and favors traditional marching tunes.

A Sports Car With a Hot Rod’s Heart……..The 1950 Allard K1
Sydney Allard’s apprenticeship with a London dealer selling both Daimlers and Buicks left him with a thorough understanding of the differences between British and American cars, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of each. By the time he began building cars of his own in the late 1930s, his preference was for a light and nimble chassis, typically infused with flathead Ford V-8 power. One such example, a unique 1950 Allard K1.
The two-seat Allard K1 debuted in 1946, featuring a 106-inch wheelbase instead of the 112-inch wheelbase. Designed to be used on road and track, the K1 used a rear axle and transverse leaf spring setup, combined with a split-axle, transverse leaf spring front suspension.In addition to engines from Ford, later K1 models also used engines from Cadillac and Lincoln.
The K1 is powered by a 1947 Mercury Type 59A flathead V-8, bored and stroked to 295-cu.in. and fed by a trio of Stromberg 97 carburetors perched atop an Edelbrock manifold. Equipped with Edelbrock heads as well, output is quite likely higher than the stated 85 horsepower, and torque is sent to the car’s rear wheels via a three-speed manual transmission.
Allards quickly developed a reputation as fearsome cars to drive, thanks in part to their high power-to-weight ratio and aggressive suspension tuning.Some called Allard’s cars crude, but perhaps purpose-built was a more fitting descriptor. Sydney Allard was a racer first and a constructor second, so his sports and racing cars were targeted towards those of a similar leaning.

Remembrance Day, also known as Poppy Day, due to the tradition of the remembrance poppy, is a day observed in Commonwealth member states. The tradition goes back to the end of the First World War as a way to honor the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty.

📽️ ᔕᕼOᖇT ᖴIᒪᗰ………..𝘼𝙣𝙞𝙢𝙖𝙡 𝘾𝙧𝙤𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙃𝙤𝙧𝙧𝙤𝙧 𝙎𝙥𝙤𝙤𝙛………….★ 𝘿𝙤𝙣’𝙩 𝙋𝙚𝙚𝙠!
Filmmaker Julian Terry has written, produced, shot, edited, and directed this fun horror parody of 𝘼𝙣𝙞𝙢𝙖𝙡 𝘾𝙧𝙤𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙣𝙜 , called……..*𝘿𝙤𝙣’𝙩 𝙋𝙚𝙚𝙠.
𝘿𝙤𝙣’𝙩 𝙋𝙚𝙚𝙠’s premise is based around the concept that the game is integrated with the real world and every action the protagonist makes within the game appears in the real world. It’s not long before things take a sinister turn as an otherworldly presence comes to fruition.
Julian Terry advises users don’t play Animal Crossing late at night.

The 1954 Talbot-Lago T26 Grand Sport Coupe……*Supreme Elegance
Talbot-Lago introduced its new coupe in the fall of 1947 amid brewing financial difficulties. The existing T16 Grand Sport model donated its chassis for the new version, but Talbot wanted a shorter coupe. And they weren’t kidding the T16 chassis was 123 inches long, but after engineers at Talbot finalized the T26 version, just 104 inches remained. This Extra Short Chassis entered series production in 1948. For customers who wanted more space, Talbot also offered a Longue version of their super short chassis, which measured in at 110 inches.
The 4.5-liter inline-six engine from the Record was tuned up to 190 or 195 horsepower. The engine’s considerable power was achieved through features like triple carburetors and a hollowed-out camshaft. Top speed was around 124 miles per hour, depending on what sort of body the owner fitted. Well suited for racing or luxury duty, the T26 was one of the most powerful production cars in existence at the time.
Production started out slowly, and in its first full year of 1948 just 12 examples of the Grand Sport were made. Talbot kept building the T26 at a very slow pace. Though the model continued through early 1955, only around 20 were made.
Hope you are well………*Happy Sunday……..Have a great week ahead.
