Pigeon Forge 2016….Hot Tubs…Fun…And Food!

January 10, 2017

I recently went to Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg the last week of December for my yearly vacation.  I am glad to say that the area is recovering from the fires that roared throughout the region a couple of months ago.  Of course, the rebuild is slow, but people were in good spirits and construction was coming along.

R.I.P.: 2016

January 3, 2017

The year 2016 is over.  Some say it was a good year, some say it was a bad year.    Either way, we lost several Celebrities, Athletes, Entertainers, and some people that shaped the world today.  It is always sad to loose someone.  It seems like 2016 had it share more than usual.  Below is a […]

As most of you know by now, Gatlinburg and a small part of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee has been heavily damaged by fire.  Buildings have been destroyed, people have lost their lives and a gorgeous place has been taken from us.  It is unimaginable what the citizens of this area are going through.  Not only is […]


The New York Police Department and Glock

November 30, 2016

    As most of you know, I am a retired Police Officer but more than anything, I am a “gun guy.”  I have been fascinated by firearms from a very young age.  I became a Firearms Instructor at the start of my career as a Police Officer and still hold that certification.  I recently […]


Thanksgiving

November 24, 2016

It is that time of year again.  Thanksgiving.  It is the time of year when families get together for lunch or dinner.  Usually we eat so much that we are miserable that night.  Of course, we have left overs for the next couple of days.  If you’re on a diet, throw that right out the […]
