In this article I will post some pictures of a place I use too work at. These pictures were taken with permission of said employer and I took these pictures the same night the fire inspector came and did his so called fire inspection and pass the building as being compliant with State, Local, County Building and BOCA Building Codes. Just look at the gross neglect and how careless the inspector was! Allowing storage of Caustic, Paint Thinners, Paint, Caulk, gallon of WD40, combustibles and…Continue

Living in southern Arizona makes one appreciate clouds since we don’t get to see them very often. We average almost 200 sunny days and about 100 partly sunny days a year but, when we are lucky enough to have clouds – esp. late in the day – we get some absolutely gorgeous sunsets.
Clouds are an intricate part of our existance on our little planet and most people probably don’t pay too much attention to them, but sometimes the right conditions can create some incredible formations and…Continue

I don't want to know his name. I don't want to see his face. I don't want to know his life's history, his back-story, who his family is, where he went to school, or what he liked to do in his spare time. I don't want to know what "cause", if any, he was fighting for. I don't want to know why he did it, or may have done... it, or what possessed him to carry out his actions. I don't want to know. Because that's what he really wants. I'll be damned if I'm going to give him what he…Continue

Richland CERT was formed by myself in 2010 after the great flood of Nashville. Nashville Office of Emergency Management has been traning CERT team members for many years but for some reason those on West side of Nashville had never formed a team. In the flood of 2010 we lost several of our neighboros on my side of town. Any number was unacceptable! I contacted the Office of Emergency Management for the names of those in West Nashville that had already completed the training and organized the…Continue
I logged on my page tonight just to see what i missed out on today because I am nosey like that, I found myself in a river of Tributes to our FALLEN HEROES. I scrolled down a little more and stumbled across a uniformed Police Officer in his dress blues and white gloves handing a flag to what appeared to be a childs hands. I had to stop for a moment and regroup. All I could think of is this childs face as he accepted this Honor for his lost HERO. The tears of pride streaming down this childs…Continue

It seems every time I turn on the news there is yet another TRAGIC story of the loss of one of our HEROES.
I am not foolish enough to think that these things can always be prevented but I am not so foolish to not see that things are tragically out of control.
This is my opinion:
Somewhere along the line the laws that have been put into place to protect the innocent have been twisted beyond recognition. With the technology we have today in most cases when someone is charged with…
