    Searching for a suitable venue can be a tedious and stressful process. Especially so when you can't risk potentially foul weather, you're not sure how many guests to plan for and/or working with a tight budget. I drive by an overlooked venue every day.

Does your City require an inspection before you sell your home? Surprise!! Oh wait ... when you are selling your home surprises are the worst thing in the world.

Just call me Agent 007, I'm modifying my car to make a point the next time I meet you on the road. You see, you were at the head of the line at a stop light, I was right behind you. This is an intersection where there are many directional lanes and these lights last forever. The light turns green...

I've been throwing dead batteries into a plastic bag for several years now. After many camping trips (flashlights), panic attacks (forgot to recharge my camera), and many, many noisy children's toys later, my battery bone yard needed to find a home. Not sure of who would accept batteries, I did w...
