How to make a pair of fine leather shoes

I have always wanted to make my own pair of fine leather shoes. It’s a craft quickly becoming lost and forgotten in our modern world of mass production.

Everything I’m going to show you is while I am doing it.  Everything is stitched by hand, there’s no sewing machine or special tools that you’ll need. I will go step by step from the first…

WARNING! SCAM ALERT! Be on the lookout for these two women.

Beware of these two women. They are hanging out around Target and Walmart parking lots. While you’re putting your groceries away they’ll ask you for a ride to McDonald’s. They are very convincing and very hot! Once they are in your car, one of them takes her clothes off and starts climbing all over you. While she keeps you busy, the other one takes your wallet. I’ve had mine taken on the 12th, 14th, 15th, and twice yesterday and probably two more times tomorrow. WalMart has wallets for $2.99, but I found…

You will love this one, I haven’t stop laughing yet.

For those of you who don’t know, cattle guards are horizontal steel rails placed at fence openings, in dug-out places in the roads adjacent to highways (sometimes across highways), to prevent cattle from crossing over that area.

What I came across was a 100,000-volt, pocket/purse-sized Tazer. The effects of the Tazer were supposed to be short lived, with no long term adverse affect on your assailant, allowing her adequate time to retreat to safety…?? WAY TOO COOL! Long story short, I bought the device and brought it home.. I loaded two AAA batteries in the darn thing and pushed the button.…

Happy Hogmanay, but what is this Scottish Holiday?

Hogmanay (hog-mə-nay) is the word in Scots for the last day of the year. The celebration of Hogmanay is synonymous with the celebration of the New Year (on the Gregorian calendar) in the Scottish manner. It normally begins at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve and is followed by further celebration on the morning of New Year’s Day (1 January) or, in some cases, all the way up to January 2nd, which is also Scottish Bank Holiday. The origins of Hogmanay is unclear, but may have come from Norse and Gaelic…

TRAVEL PLANS FOR 2016 I have been in many places, but I’ve never been in Kahoots. Apparently, you can’t go alone. You have to be in Kahoots with someone. I’ve also never been in Cognito.
