2015 Rolls-Royce Phantom Series II Review
The wood throughout is book-matched, meaning you can draw a line down the centre of the car and the grain is a mirror image on each side. The dashtop is trimmed in the smoothest, softest aniline leather, and where plastics are used they're always of ...

The plan I had for tonight was chicken quesadillas and a new Netflix movie while snuggled on the couch with Sean Michael. I am sitting here 0 for 2. Besides trying to help our community purchase much needed wood for the Waldo County Woodshed with an auction tonight on our Facebook page and painting some new jewelry pieces, we are caring for a couple goat kids in my... Just a typical Friday night. Sean just called the house phone from the barn for help because two of our young buck kids were down and not getting up to eat. Goats never miss a meal. Lack of food/water. Every possibility ran through my head one by one, and I ruled out those that were not likely as I grabbed my coat and shoes. They have plenty of food and water available. Hard to see in the dim barn light as one by one, Sean handed kids to me over the stall wall. A little on the thin side despite ample food and water. It starts with serial nights of temperatures in the negative double digits. Compound that with snow storm after snow storm coming through, winds howling and dropping over 3 feet of snow on us in just over a week, making opening the barn doors to let the goats out to stretch their legs ill advised. We have 4-5 goats in each 10' x 10' stall. When freak weeks like this happen, it can mean bullying.
Here I stand on a cold winter morning with no prospects of coffee for ten minutes. Yes, here I stand in my centrally heated home, with reliable electricity, hot and cold water from a tap, and ground Starbucks coffee. Given any winter morning in 1860 the prospects of getting that morning cup of coffee faced some much larger tasks. First of all is the oddity of not having a reliable time piece to tell you exactly when to get up. Rising before the sun, or just at sun up is easier than trusting mantel clock. It was not uncommon for people to not know the true “time” before the advent of modern time keeping. So while we may complain about the alarm buzzing us awake at 5 AM, it at least gets us out of bed to head to work. Speaking of that getting out of bed issue, with the advent of central heating I do not have to face a truly cold wooden floor. No matter the home, your wood stove or earlier on, your fireplace was your only form of “central heating,” and it wasn’t going to do any heating until you got it going. It has been reported that the general ambient temperature in wooden frame home on a winter day, with wood stove blazing was approximately sixty degrees near the stove and dropped precipitously the farther away you went. I suspect many of us would silently contemplate sitting on the stove while drinking the coffee.
With literally millions of forum posts in the extensive library chronicling the adventures of many a robust overland vehicle, this is the only one to feature a BMW M Coupe. Below is the story, one that will unhinge the most ardent 4×4 pundits who say such small cars are not capable of––adventure. About a year ago, Ryan, knowing my love for road-trips, tossed out his idea about driving the Dempster Highway from the Klondike Highway to Inuvik, NWT. He had planned this a year prior with his father, but they elected to conquer the PCH down to San Diego instead. When driving a road like this, being a 1,500km round trip of rock/shale/gravel in mediocre conditions at the best of times, in addition to 5000+kms of highway to get us there and back, you’d elect to travel in a more roomy, comfortable vehicle... However, being the gear-heads we are (read idiots), we chose to tackle this trip in Ryan’s 2001 BMW M-Coupe. Fast forward to three weeks ago when, if we were like most people, necessary prep-work, vehicle inspections, pre-trip maintenance, packing and planning would have been taking place. Vegas sounded like a much better plan and a far better idea than any of those things. So for the 6 days prior to the trip (for Ryan) and 4 days for myself, we drank, ate, gambled, partied and relaxed with good friends in sin city.

This alarm clock has nice styling and large bright numerals. I thought there was a brightness control but, since I must have searched a dozen or more alarm clocks, I must have overlooked its lack when I ordered. Nevertheless, I'd have bought the clock anyway because of its styling and the wood-look of the case, which complements my wood nightstand.
