Fond Memories And A Common Sense Approach To Living In Morelia, Mexico
For me, living in Morelia was a very rewarding experience. It was certainly far different than what I had been used to in the United States. When I went there in 1997, technology existed, however, technicians were at times limited in their knowledge compared to their counterparts in the United States. Therefore, on occasion, computer equipment did not work as well as what I had been accustomed to. And, computer services were much more limited. For instance, when I first arrived at Centro Mexicano Internacional CMI, my school in Morelia, there was one computer available 10 to 30 minutes a day to students for email services. If I wanted additional time and services, I had to go rent one of the two or three available computers at a local cyber café a few blocks down the street from CMI.

Are You Prepared for a Winter Emergency
Brrr! Its definitely winter here in the Carolinas! Snow backed up traffic in Raleigh, NC today with some people being stuck in traffic for 5 hours!!! Four different schools have children spending the night because driving conditions were too hazardous for the buses and parents could not get through the traffic to pick up their children! People are in ditches and cars are stalled. An older couple found themselves stranded for more than 4 hours after going off the road into a ditch.

The Thoughtful Tinkerer - Make Homemade Devices For The Fun Of It
Ive always liked to make gadgets and gizmos that have some function, either useful or not so useful. It started with the simple things that many kids make - slingshots, a simple bow and arrow, a toy boat. Occasionally I made more involved items such as a canoe and a dune buggy. Then there was the grass hut - 12 feet across, octogonal in shape, and thatched top to bottom with a thick layer of grass. I built it in a remote location, near a stipmine filled with water. Hauled the cut grass in a 1972 Volkswagon convertible with the top down. Piled the grass high in the back seat. It must have taken a dozen trips back and forth from a nearby hay field.

Hartman Luggage … A Trunkmaker’s Saga!
Hartman luggage has been around for a while.The advent of the steam engine in the mid 1820s heralded the first wave of mass tourism. Mass organized travel probably began in 1841 when a 33 year old Thomas Cook organized his first rail tour. And from then onwards, luggage has performed a dual role of not only protecting one’s belongings, but also surreptitiously declaring one’s social status. Travel was the exclusive realm for the leisure of the well-heeled. The end of the Napoleonic Wars saw great advances in technology, leading to the arrival of the steam engine, which soon permitted travel by rail. By the 1870s, sleeping and dining cars had arrived, bringing about unheard of comforts in travel. The jet age dramatically changed the dynamics of travel which no longer remained in the domain of the rich. Today, a traveler would truly be lost without luggage.
