Love ItLove It


I’m really not that into cars and to me ANYCARILDO as long as it gets me from A to B in reasonable comfort. Of the possibly 65 cars I have owned, there is one exception, my red Austin Heally “Sprite”, nic named “Frog Eyes”  Oh, yes, I can assure you that I really did own 65 automobiles, bought and paid for. Here’s the thing, for a good few years, I was buying used cars, touching up minor stuff, paint scratches, missing screws, a side mirror here, a smooth tire there and always sold with C.O.R., (certificate of roadworthiness) 

It was a good life as I soon picked up a pretty-nice small-town reputation of selling, only good, affordable cars. This post, however, is not about selling cars but to share a bit of 1960s nostalgia. I was single back then and covered the length and breadth of our country adding 1000’s of miles of trouble-free traveling in this remarkable little car. 

I had bought it on auction for $60 and drove it for 5 years when I was made a kind of Maffia offer, you know, the kind you could not refuse, to the tune of $550 cash!!

Hello, I’m Andre’ Hartslief, Tranquilpen© 2008 “I finally discovered, that man’s whole purpose, is not to do the right things in life or to be good, to be successful or famous. Our entire purpose in life is to express divinity unto everyone and everything. How we do that, is by transforming ourselves completely, from an old state of existence to a new state and if we start removing those limitations piece by piece, It is only, then, that the Creator of the universe and all life, will begin to express himself, unbridled through us.

Web content faces two insuperable problems: obscurity and neglect.When I use the word obscurity, I mean web content is buried beneath billions of web pages and by neglect, I mean, what if someone actually manages to find your page, they will most probably ignore it or abandon it.So, to conquer these problems, I try to craft my content in a style that search engines can easily find and readers can’t resist. I do this as an earnestly aspiring writer. Outside of this, I’m quite incompetent.
