Cincinnati Travel, Sports & Boat Show

Lets go ahead and get it out of the way up front. Car shows, boat shows or any show really at the end of the day is a fashion show. With that said the Cincinnati Travel, Sports & Boat Show this year could be titled back to the Future. The boats were all 1970's muscle car metal flake while the jet skis were 1990's day glow graphics. Interesting the two groups are taking their cues from two completely different sources. I guess that makes sense if the audience for those products are completely different.
You still have tonight, tomorrow and Sunday to check out all the new products.

Do you have a swamp? because if you do you could use this swamp buggy. And if you buy one I really want a ride in it!

downtown Cincinnati now has a Hardware Store!!

Acme Lock And Hardware opens today bigger and better than ever at 125 East 9th street downtown Cincinnati.
Two floors, 8,000 sq ft this place has just about anything you could need living downtown. A whole floor of hardware, plus paint, home goods including cookware, cleaning supplies. And about anything you could need for your pet, bike, or grilling. Someone could just about fly to Cincinnati, rent an apartment and minus furniture and bedding stock the whole place. If like me you thought Walgreen's has everything, wait until you check out Acme.
And to top all that off, everyone at Acme are upstanding citizens and rehabbed a historic building in a historic district. 125 East 9th street was built in the 1890's and was at one time the Republican Club and had a bowling alley in the basement.
You really need to swing by Acme, grab a cup of coffee at their counter and walk around.
Be warned, there going to be a ton of stuff you'll want to purchase!

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Each year, on the third Monday in January, we celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr's birthday. This is the first national holiday to honor an individual black American. Cincinnati turned out to honor and remember. It is amazing how the ideas he talked about seem timeless and timely.

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Love trumps Hate

This gentleman had some banners and pins carried during a march on Washington back in 1963.
It's sad American people are still fighting to be treated equal.

Sometimes it takes a birthday to be truly grateful of the friends you have, the people you know and the things you have.

who drives 306 miles for a coffee?

I don't know how othr people do it, but I can't be the only person that makes a list from what they see on social media. At the end of December Dave Hart instagramed a coffee shop in Columbiana, Ohio. This won't mean anything to anyone here in Cincinnati but I flipped out because Columbiana was the next "big" town away from New Springfield where I grew up. Columbiana had a movie theater so we were there every weekend at least for years. At any rate I knew I was heading back to Youngstown and was determined to drop down and check out Generations Coffee.
Rolling into Youngstown we weren't in any big hurry yet and cut through Mill Creek Park. The Metro Park is one of the few gems Youngstown has left and cuts north to south through the entire city.

Generations Coffee was legit, the coffee was amazing. But it was pretty cool talking to them when I was ordering, all the sudden I was asked, "hey, what is that pin on your jacket?" Oh that's for the Cincinnati Streetcar. Man you should have seen their faces, Ben? I think that was his name got all excited. OH WOW, there was just a guy in here last week from Cincinnati! I know, I said, that's why I'm here LOL. Somewhere along the line of gabbing about Cincinnati and Columbiana and my surprise the theater was still operating he mentioned a small restaurant across the street serving all natural food. That was pretty awesome considering my next question was going to be for a recommendation for somewhere to eat.
And in case you couldn't tell it was 9°f out there.

I was admiring the whole back wall of this place, it was a bread oven that operated up until the 1970's. My brother in law remarked on how the metal work was from Cincinnati. That's crazy! I was looking at it but I see that kind of stuff every single day so it didn't sink in until he said something.
