    1993 Cadillac DeVille Trunk Pull Down Motor issue.

    Video below: It took some doing, but I figured out a solution to my 1993 Cadillac DeVille Trunk Pull Down Motor issue. It wasn’t the motor, and it wasn’t the switch… a little old-school ingenuity solved this issue for free. What happened? My wife pops the trunk and reports it popped much louder than normal […]

    Not so Happy with Skyebrowse

    Recently, the Pilot Institute featured a company called SkyeBrowse. SkyeBrowse has a platform that allows you to create a 3D model of a crime scene or other investigation area simply by taking a video of the area. I got excited because I trust the Pilot Institute, so excited in fact that I mentioned the capability […]

    Christmas Stories That Touch My Heart

    Very few rhymes or stories bring back childhood memories like the classic tale of the night before Christmas. I took a little time yesterday, about 3 hours, to record, edit and publish my own version of the classic. I’m proud of myself to be sure. My video Twas the Night Before ChristmasA Visit from St. […]

  • White Noise – Black Screen – 12 hours to sleep, study, meditate or mask unwanted noise/sounds.

    White Noise – Black Screen – 12 hours to sleep, study, meditate or mask unwanted noise/sounds.

    When I was younger, I traveled a lot and stayed in hotels almost more than I stayed at home. I used to tune into channels with white noise or unplug the cable to get the white noise to work. I know, TVs don’t work that way anymore. Back then, it worked great to block out […]

  • YARDEC Solar Animal Repellent Does Not Work

    I set up this device that has a motion sensor and it screams and flashes to supposedly chase away “critters.” I also set up a trail camera to capture the creatures running away from the device… instead, I got footage of them ignoring the thing. We have a problem here in Florida, okay, there are […]

  • Anti Collision Light for Part 107 Commercial Drone Operations

    In an effort to be in compliance with night-time drone operations, I purchased an anti-collision light. I was less than pleased with my choice. Regarding the “Firehouse Technology ARC V Drone Strobe Anti-Collision Light, 1000 Lumens, White“ As part of “gearing up” to be a commercial drone pilot, and to be in compliance with Part […]

  • Fixing the power window on our new to us 1993 Cadillac Sedan Deville.

    I filmed, edited and posted a 25+ minute video about how I fixed the electric window on our (her) Cadillac and it seems to be very popular. I thought I would share it here too. The passenger side window on our new to us Cadillac would not go down. That is until I forced it […]

  • My first “blog” in many years.

    So I used to “blog” a good bit many years ago but I gave it up to focus on different business interests. Since 2007, I’ve started a very successful print magazine, then sold it. Started another one, and closed it (thanks Covid19). Learned to cook professionally by feeding the homeless voluntarily and opened a BBQ […]
