Cars, cars, cars are the stars! Shining liked they were just dipped in the sweetest glaze. Couple of bikes in this vid, too. If you see a fly & flashy motor vehicle and it gets your motor running, this visual has much whip appeal for YOU!

David Bamberger Shows How He Brought Life Back To The Barren Texas Hill Country (Video)

Kind of cool. You know, in our posting about colonizing Mars we probably should be talking more about making the unlivable land inhabitable. Kind of like David is doing here. A bit easier to do on Earth, what with the breathable air, centuries of civilized existence, and access to society making inputs on the same planet. Still, David boldly went on his mission to make a natural paradise of the rough Texas Hill Country.

Almost 50 years ago, fried chicken tycoon David Bamberger used his fortune to purchase 5,500 acres of overgrazed land in the Texas Hill Country. Planting grasses to soak in rains and fill hillside aquifers, Bamberger devoted the rest of his life to restoring the degraded landscape. Today, the land has been restored to its original habitat and boasts enormous biodiversity. Bamberger’s model of land stewardship is now being replicated across the region and he is considered to be a visionary in land management and water conservation.

Ken Burns’ “Prohibition” Documentary For PBS Is On Netflix (Trailer)

What a stupid idea it was – that people thought you could actually get away with this. That you could actually ban alcohol… It’s a preposterous idea.

We now have movies and shows like “The Untouchables” and “Boardwalk Empire” to show us just how crazy alcohol prohibition legislation and enforcement was in America. Of course, NOW we see it was doomed to fail. But when the nation was ‘in it’ and trying to ‘legislate morality,’ the government and people who believed taking sinful booze out of society was in its best interest, people who did not agree (and those who sold and used the then illegal substance) were criminalized.

We are going through something similar now. You see where I am going right? I’m sure Ken Burns thought about it, too. You get it yet?

Okay, watch the trailer and everywhere alcohol is referenced, insert marijuana. Hmmmm.

Should be good watching. Catch the PBS doc on Netflix anytime!

Travel & Culture: Jayforce.com’s “Lboogy” Reports From Cozumel, Mexico

I arrived in Cozumel (Mexico) so excited to see its culture and people. I wasn’t disappointed, from the moment I stepped off the boat. From its vibrant people and colorful marketplaces. After a little shopping and liquor buying!!!! We headed to a private beach area for FOOD, FUN, and RELAXATION. Cozumel is a cool place for both singles and families.

The food in Cozumel is relatively inexpensive. The food has a great flare with a little spice to get ya going. Attractions are plentiful – from parasailing, jet skis, visiting the ruins and private beaches. The markets offer lots of food, trinkets, and other gifts that are cheap. Fifty dollars, and you can bring back tons of gifts for family and friends!

Insane! This is like the Titanic launch on steroids. Three times the size and almost as much worldwide fanfare.
