BACK to GOOGLE (for awhile)

DELETE FILES / RESET HOSTING Don't ever do this! We did a payed migration of our web hosting to CPanel (whatever that means) about a year ago. It didn't go well but things still worked. The problem was we would get warnings we were running out of space etc. so a decision was made to stop kicking the can and deal with it.  Starting with a small site on a domain we no longer use, I deleted a couple folders and killed everything, I mean everything. The dashboard wasn't even there. I called GoDaddy and they said they would restore it for a reasonable fee. Two days later an email arrived with an apology and a refund.  It was smoked. The only option was to "Reset" which meant hosting from a new ISP. So bear with us / me and stay tuned for more news and updates... like we bought another building in Winslow, across the street and down a block from the Motor Palace.

New website/blog

What's new! A long time ago (when Facebook was still in school) I had a fairly successful motorcycle website, so I started a new one. The new one got even more traffic, then Apple quit supporting the software, so I started a blog, then another blog to be compatible with the store...that Google quit supporting. Anyway my stuff ended up scattered all over the place so I decided to consolidate everything into one. This will be the last post on this Blog and all my domains (except this one if it says "blogspot"in it) will forward to 66MotorPalace.com over the next couple weeks. This blog was transferred as an archive with images to 66MotorPalace.com and I will continue to transfer images from photo albums in the other sites for the rest of my life. Thanks for reading the last couple years and if we haven't yet, I hope we meet someday on the road! Brian http://66MotorPalace.com

More around Winslow

A few shots from around Winslow  I forgot to post this so it's going up now. I'm switching to Wordpress but will keep this alive for awhile. Motorcycle Parking Pigeons around the corner How to be warm on 18° mornings Clear Creek "Rama-Rama-Rama..." (was a song in an old Ram commercial) Memorial on the Plateau Next post: More Winslow and a little San Antonio-I'm already back.

Winslow Week!

Yesterdays Work It's 16° outside now but will be in the mid 50s later. The important thing is it's warm inside, I have a working coffee maker, and delicious coffee from Mojo Coffee here in Winslow. Coffee kitchen Where I'm sitting right now with fresh darker paint on walls. Morning sun Plumbing With a lot of grinding and guessing we have all our faucets working properly. I'm not too excited about the finish I chose for handles but they're working and the stems will now accept any handle from "Made in USA" California Faucets .  Antique fixtures are a challenge, but after countless hours of effort...water runs and stops. Sunday Sunrise Our reflection in the Theater window The building around the corner burned down since our last visit Southeast side of the Motor Palace Shortly after taking this picture I learned the restaurants close early on Sunday

How we spent Christmas Vacation

We ate For details and recipes go to our  Townhomesteader blog   Rib-Eye Roast Sweet Potato Pie.  Recipe @ 66 Pie Where we eat We messed with Motorcycles Sold some cool stuff Schott NYC Leather Jackets Motor Dolls Books Took this Picture in Black & White mode It reminds me of Albuquerque, N.M. in the late '60s. It's Orange, CA in 2013. Drove Around With all the electrical working, new brakes, and a new exhaust system, Baby got to do some exploring in the big city...on genuine paved roads! It wasn't good Christmas weather but it was great weather so we took turns looked at Christmas lights in the Jeep and the Sidecar. With a new exhaust system, baby purrs like a kitten.
