Name:
Location: Granite Falls, North Carolina, United States

I'm an ordained United Methodist minister no longer pastoring churches, a former media producer with skills ten years out of date, a writer trying to sell my first novel, and a sales associate keeping body and soul together working for the People's Republic of Corporate America. I'm married to the most wonderful woman in the world, who was my best friend for 17 years before we married.

Corporate Revenge?

Back in the 1970s Tweetsie Railroad carried a strongbox for outlaws to try to rob during the train ride. I guess they still do. The outlaws would stop and storm the train, and the good marshal, often Fred Kirby back then, would fight a gun duel with them and save the train, strongbox and all.

The strongbox originally had "Wells Fargo" on it, until the management of the park got a cease and desist letter from Wells Fargo. The Charlotte Observer published the witty letter the owner/manager or whoever from Tweetsie wrote back. Something along the lines of being surprised Wells Fargo still existed, and they didn't want to step on WF's trademark or anything, so if WF was going to be so uptight about it, they would change the name on the box. They changed it to Northwestern Bank.

In the 1980s Northwestern Bank got bought out by First Union. You know, the one that was so unpopular with its customers that when it bought out Wachovia Bank it changed its name to Wachovia.

Now, Wells Fargo has bought out Wachovia. So the name on the Tweetsie strongbox has come full circle. I need to take a grandchild or two to Tweetsie and see what name is on that box now.

車燈來看看唷!
情趣用品對一般人來說充滿神秘動人的吸引力,許多人想一窺情趣用品究竟,卻又不敢太過接近,因為這個領域充斥著謠言與標籤、讓許多人深怕一碰及就會讓別人投射以異樣的眼光看待。

如果大家稍微留意一下,不難可以發現一些事,大多人在逛街時對每一間情趣用品店的櫥窗都會向內張望後姍姍離去,有一些人卻是假裝目不斜視的走過。畢竟台灣人的觀念並沒有像國外一樣的開放,所以還無法很公開與光明正大的踏進情趣用品去選購一些情趣用品
 
利用網路購物的方式去選購情趣用品是相當方便的一件事情,可以從網頁上獲得商品的詳細介紹而不必害羞的去詢問店員商品的使用方法,並且在商品的介紹上面也不亞於從店員那獲得的資訊,有些甚至還更詳細一些。
 
在台灣有許多情趣用品訂購網站,從以前只有少樣的情趣用品到今日數百種的情趣用品看來,這種促進閨房之樂的東西已經漸漸地為人們所接受與喜愛。

但以目前的市場來說,絕大部分的情趣用品網站皆以銷售台灣、大陸製造的情趣用品居多。原因很簡單:成本低廉,卻也因此犧牲了品質和安全性!情趣用品是直接與自己和最親密的另一半的身體接觸,為了節省一點點的金錢而選擇品質粗糙的廉價黑心情趣用品,實為相當不智的選擇。
