To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.

The real man smiles in trouble, gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by reflection.

Thomas Paine


(From an article written by Harvey Noland)

Satchel was well known for his “master maxims.”

“Don’t look back, something might be gaining on you.” And his favorite response to questions about growing old was, “Age is a question of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”

“How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you were?” Mull that over. There’s a lot more to it than you might think.

Legendary baseball pitcher Satchel Paige reached the major leagues at an age when most pitchers have given up pitching. In 1948 at the age of 42, Paige signed his first major league contract with the Cleveland Indians. Critics called him the oldest rookie in baseball history. He pitched in the majors until he was almost 60!

© LIFE’S TRUE V-8!!!

Sometimes the tides of Life are high
Sometimes the tides of Life are low
Sometimes the moon is glistening and full
and sometimes the moon has no glow
Can we prevent these dramatic ups & downs?
Perhaps, if we all were clowns
Maybe if we look for answers in the sky
The legend of the geese could tell us why
For when geese form their famous V
They are in perfect harmony
Even if one of their loved-ones falls,
the other geese ban together and sound their calls
of help elevate their feathered friend into the endless
sea of blue So, alas, their V-8 formation and
velocity continue to go on cue A perfect example of
prevention and consideration at its best We all may
benefit by putting these natural acts to the test
But, because fear and abandonment encompass our
souls We do not listen to our basic instincts and,
instead, run to opposite poles Only to find more
disappointment and hurt When we could have taken
a chance not to skirt--- The very thing our lives
desperately need The dreaded four-letter word
which is the seed – of Life, if used instinctively.
What can We, as humans do to keep our world from
falling apart? Perhaps act unconditionally - with joy, compassion, friendliness and equanimity
For this is definitely a start!!!

Susan M. Tabar

Dog Philosophy


If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you; that is the principal difference between a dog and a man.
-Mark Twain

You can say any foolish thing to a dog, and the dog will give you a look that says, 'Wow, you're right! I never would've thought of that!'
- Dave Barry

Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.
-Roger Caras

If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then give him only two of them.
-Phil Pastoret

My goal in life is to be as good of a person my dog already thinks I am.

    The prestigious APBA Gold Cup race! Presented by the Metro Detroit Chrysler Jeep Superstores. See Unlimited Hydroplanes race at speeds up to 200 mph for the oldest motor sport trophy in the world.

    The Unlimited Lights will return in 2006! By popular demand, the automotive-powered Unlimited Light Hydroplanes will be chasing the historic O.J. Mulford Silver Cup. Loud, fast, and unpredictable, Unlimited Lights are crowd favorites wherever they race. This year, the Unlimited Light Hydroplane Racing Association is supporting the Lupus Alliance with the Lights for Lupus campaign. Nautical Mile Association members will be sponsoring the Unlimited Lights and local displays beginning in July.

    Classic Unlimited Hydroplanes return to Detroit The 1982 APBA Gold Cup featured a thrilling duel between veteran driver Dean Chenoweth in Miss Budweiser and rising star Chip Hanauer at the wheel of Atlas Van Lines. Hanauer emerged victorious following a deck-to-deck battle. The two Classic Thunderboats will be on hand in 2006 to re-enact the contest; Hanauer will be in the Atlas cockpit.

    A large gathering of Vintage race boats Completing the program in exhibitions will be a large contingent of vintage race boats including 5+ Grand Prix's and the wild-riding Jersey Speed Skiffs. Vintage boats, lovingly restored representatives of the sport's early years, draw oohs and aahs from admirers. Skiffs may look like something out of the past, but the hulls are made of fiberglass and feature finely tuned engines. They bounce, twist, and leap their way around the race course as fearless drivers and white-knuckled riding mechanics chase the checkered flag.

    . The return of Julie Clark with her aerobatic T-34 and the MOPAR Air Show.
