Just read an interesting article about our deficit. I guess I never thought about how much a trillion really is until now.
The article I read put it into perspective for me. I think this description will for you as well....
"It would take a jet flying at the speed of sound, reeling out a roll of dollar bills behind it, 14 years before it reeled out one trillion dollar…Continue
Remember Mark Wahlberg? Of course you do.... In the early 90's his group released music which was relatively popular. More recently he entered the main stream with roles in movies, etc.
He told David Letterman that he is in the "painful" process of having all of his tattoos removed since he didn't want to be a "bad example" for his kids..... He is even taking his kids with him to the procedures to "scare them away from ever getting ink..."
Spread the word, Mark…Continue
I've seen the following published on many web sites over the years. I've modified it a bit to make easier to read. I have NOT added/altered the text or the author's intent. I believe the LAST LINE perfectly describes the intent of this site or at least MY feeling about the point of this site. BranDEE

Being an avid biker, living in North West Michigan is challenging to say the least. I've compounded the challenge by deciding to live, several years ago, on a non county maintained road. Needless to say, when the snow starts to pile up my riding days are over till Spring.
There was a time when I lived in an area with paved streets which were plowed, maintained, etc. That provided me the opportunity to ride year round. I took full advantage. There is NOTHING BETTER than putting on the…Continue
I spend time trolling the internet every day. A LOT of time. Between running multiple web sites, Facebook sites, Twitter accounts, playing the SEO game and just readin the news (I am a news junkie) I am out here most of my day. It NEVER ceases to amaze me at the amount of information out here. And even more amazing is that the database grows daily.
In the last several days I have found a couple web sites that I never thought existed, however, was sure that they did. It seems like…Continue
It's not that I don't enjoy the scenery. Leaves changing colors is cool and I'm fortunate to have some great views of Lake Michigan from my deck, however, Fall means one thing. Winter is soon to follow. And I hate Winter even more than Fall.
I USED to enjoy Winter when I had more time and was more interested in ripping along snowmobile trails going…Continue

Yeah, I know..... Probably not the site to vent about Kim Kardashian fat ass. I won't make this too long I just want to vent. Seriously, did anyone really expect this sham of a marriage publicity stunt to last? It was over before it began. Kim K. always has been an honest person attention seeking whore, why is…Continue
The models affected are the 2009-2012 model years of the Touring, CVO Touring and Trike motorcycles.

Yet another dilemma within the ranks of the Biker Lifestyle Network. Do we actively "work" our Facebook page or not? We have not been updating it regularly, however, still have managed to acquire 700 +/- "likes". Those "likes" are valuable commodities. Each one represents another set of eyes, or MANY sets of eyes viewing your product or service.
No point in beating around the bush on this one..... I ride without my helmet whenever the opportunity presents itself. Michigan has a helmet law so unless I leave the state OR am in a particularly cocky mood and decide to ride until I am pulled over, I am typically wearing a helmet.
I am dead set against any mandatory helmet law. I've heard ALL the reasons why I should wear a helmet, trust me on this. EVERYONE has an angle on…Continue
