Good Evening, Afternoon, or Morning! If you haven’t been on the website recently, I just added new galleries to the Flashback Friday section and the Eye Candy section. I’m also working to set up more galleries to add until it’s safe to attend events. Here’s the lowdown. My neck of the woods has entered the Phase 2 stage. Prince George’s County started yesterday. Montgomery County will start on the what was supposed opening date of the District. I have seen an increase in the activity on my income source. Meanwhile, there has been more action coming from my other revenue stream than the 1st revenue stream created for this website. Now, I need to get the latest revenue source more exposure to ensure all revenue sources work in step with each other. That will help in getting something for dad on Father’s Day!

Happy Tuesday! Here’s the latest edition of the Daily Drive. If you missed last week’s post, I’m reposting the links to the books, resources available to those who are truly serious about combating racism, police brutality, and human rights abuse! Weeks earlier, I listened to an episode of the Growth Show about a Chicago based bookstore surviving and thriving due this global health crisis! This episode also had a list to campaign to help get books to school children across the city. I’m in the process of adding new galleries in the Eye Candy section and Flashback Fridays! If you ever visited the event calendar page, several events have been either removed or rescheduled as my region is still stuck in between Phase 1 and Phase 2 reopening. I’m also making some updates to the Divas-N-Rides store and my other online business that’s open. They will reach a point where they are on the same level with the other revenue sources we use everyday

Happy Memorial Day! I hope you’re having a safe and happy Memorial Day! I’m also saying thanks to the men and women of the Armed Forces and 1st responders on this National Holiday! With the current state of affairs going on right now, I had to improvise with what I got available. This hasn’t been the normal spring many of us experience. In addition, this isn’t going to a normal summer either! People had their everyday lives disrupted by a force beyond their control. Even if you didn’t lose a job, a loved one, and/or a friend, it’s clear no one is ever immune from the impact that was dealt to everyone directly or indirectly felt the effect of this health crisis. However, my neck of the woods is slowly moving closer to phase 1 of reopening by June 1. Now, I’m working on making moves on this website and more once phase 1 of reopening the region is in full effect. I’m getting all my tools together so I won’t have to race to gather everything to get my 1st post Stay At Home Orders gigs. I just finished creating another box for sale on Bentbox (18 years and older)! This box (18 years and older) I created today features one of the feature models from last year’s photo shoot. One thing I did during the Stay At Home orders was enacted was I put more effort into getting one of my other revenue streams up and running to get another form of income to make up for any lost work from this health crisis. Now, I got to upload other images from past photo shoots uploaded to show and share with others. Before I go, I need to share this video I made last year during Memorial Day Weekend!

Greetings, Everyone! This isn’t a normal Memorial Day Weekend. Sure, the Coca-Cola 600 is still happening. It’s not the usual Memorial Day. The pandemic has changed everything on this website and everything else in between. There won’t be any car shows and motorcycle events this weekend in my neck of the woods. I lost count of the number of events that I had to remove from the event calendar due to health and safety issues from this global health crisis. Some events have been pushed back to later this year since the ban on public gatherings are still in effect. The beaches are open, but they have safety rules as well! The one thing that is for certain is that the latest edition to the eye candy gallery is open. Tomorrow, the latest gallery will be added to the Flashback Fridays Gallery. I also added some new products to not just one, but 2 of our revenue sources! Finally, we got a video from an event this website covered last year. Hopefully, we make to the other side better than our old selves!

Happy Thursday! Maryland and Virginia will start phase 1 of reopening this weekend. However, DC, Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Suburban Maryland, and Northern Virginia won’t start reopening until the end of May or early June. Here’s the deal! Everyone wants local economies to get to business after shutting down 2 months as a result of this global health crisis. However, not everyone is at the 1st phase level. There’s a good chance we won’t see some businesses reopen when all. For those who are concerned about having a source of income coming, the best place I go to is Skillshare. I’ve taken a few classes on their platform to add new skills.  Soon, those new skills will pay off big time! I’m working towards getting my Taskrabbit business resumed. I’m also seeing more action from one of my revenue streams. I just recorded 2 sales yesterday! I also set up some new listings that will go live this Sunday! I’m also working on new listings on my other revenue source! Tomorrow, I’ll have the latest Flashback Fridays and Eye Candy gallery posted to kick-off the weekend.

Good Afternoon! It’s been 2 months since I did a photoshoot. For most folks, that sounds like years. Even though I added new content on the Flashback Fridays section, I’m in the process of adding new content on the eye candy section because I haven’t uploaded and edited the photos. Here’s the lowdown on this worldwide health crisis. I live in the DC Capital Region, and they’re in no rush to reopen now due to the upward trend in cases. So, the earliest I can expect the region to start the reopening would be the end of May. That means I have to ensure any event calendar updates match the news updates! All I know is that Maryland International Raceway won’t be open until the end of May. Now, think about this! 3 months on events wiped out! On the other hand, Nascar will return to action this weekend. Indycar returns to action next week minus fans. This is a slow recovery period. I was hoping the curve would flatten for the whole region, not bits and pieces! However, I’m working on new designs and updates to the website and the store! I’ll have new galleries posted before the night is over.

Good Afternoon! I made some changes to the calendar yesterday! From what I learned, the earliest you’ll see new event galleries on this website will be the end of May. This month, Nascar will be back in action next weekend. F1, Indycar, and NHRA won’t be back until later in the summer months. So, we’re slowly moving from iracing to real racing. It’s clear this will be the few live sports we’ll have available to watch. In addition, I’m working on re-establishing some of the feature models photoshoots I was working on before the global health crisis wreaked havoc on everyone and everything. I might actually take a look at doing virtual photoshoots. Getting new content posted won’t be an issue despite the current situation everyone is in right now! Some of the photoshoots will include items from either the original Divas-N-Rides Store or the newly launched Home Team Legends online store. If you haven’t visited them yet, now would be a good time as the weather begins to slowly move upwards depending on where you are.

Good Evening! April is gone, and we’re now in May now! It’s clear that my 1st trip to MIR this year will be at the end of the month. With the stay at home orders still active, Memorial Day Weekend could be the earliest they’ll see events resume. This or any activity in the region is up in the air until regional leaders collectively find a timeframe to get DC/MD/VA to ease up on restrictions once all 3 jurisdictions get the curve to flatten and then some. Okay, it’s clear quarantine fatigue is getting real. Here’s the deal! The normal we were used to won’t be returning anytime soon. Even if the curve flattens before Memorial Day and all 3 stages of reopening is complete, it won’t be the same. Sure, some events will happen or get a new date. However, we better prepare for the new reality that’s coming on the other side of this! Sure this isn’t the usual blog post I make. However, the extra time I have now will make me make the moves that I should have done weeks ago. One way to keep followers active is to use your available time to learn new skills at Skillshare! Oh, by the way, I made some updates on this revenue stream based on the activities that occurred last month. I’m also launching a series of new sales on this revenue stream this Sunday to kick start cash flow and revenue. The goal is to have enough funds available when the car show and cruise season get back up and running. Finally, Flashback Friday has been relaunched! The newest post can be found here!

Happy Tuesday! Still here with all of those who supported us since the website’s rebirth back in 2017. This month marks 15 years since the original Divas-N-Rides was born. It’s been a wild ride, but it’s amazing this project is thriving throughout the decade and a half in action. I’ve been spending more time doing spring cleaning around my place. While the 1st source of website revenue stream had some hits and misses this month, We’re getting some traction from another revenue stream that saw some steady growth in the last few weeks. I’m focusing on the events calendar and the galleries. I also plan to relaunch Flashback Fridays before the week is up. I’m in the process of examining several media storage devices to find any galleries that didn’t get posted in the past. This is where you can see the site before moving to WordPress! Check the next posting or visit for details.

Happy Saturday! Let’s go over what happened this week! Last week, I had an active week with one of my revenue sources. This week, a different revenue source has seen more action than expected! With most events being canceled or pushed back to later dates, I’ve taken advantage of the free time to clean out the house, learn new skills, create new revenue streams, engaged in new events, and reorganize parts of my life in the process! As I made updates to the calendar, there may be some signs of hope on the way. There’s a possibility that many events I posted will happen as scheduled or on a new makeup date. It’s been a long wait. It’s clear the other side of this could be here sooner than expected. Let’s be prepared when the new set of normal beings!

Happy Saturday! Since there are no automotive or motorcycle events until it’s safe for the public to attend events safely, I’ve been working on some other items in the house this week. I’m working to collect and save funds for a new car to replace the one damaged weeks ago. To achieve this plan, I needed to get creative with new ideas I made. I added new designs and merchandise for my latest revenue source. I was able to generate some successful sales with my other revenue streams. I’m also working to set-up my television for the latest edition of Kindle Fire TV! Sure, there are shows worth catching upon. However, I have other things that need to be taken care of first. Then, I can relax and watch.

Happy Easter! I’m resting after a hectic week. A week ago, I had multiple sales on the eBay store. However, I’m branching out to other forms of revenue. I’m also planning to resume learning new skills from Skill Share. I’m also going back to some previous photo shoots to find photos to add to the eye candy gallery. Since most of the events on the events calendar are in jeopardy if this global health crisis gets worse before getting better.

Greetings! Although I had some more sales with one of my more stable revenue streams in the past 3 days, I had to make some small changes this afternoon. I used to promote my Cafe Press Store that I had since the birth of Divas-N-Rides in 2005. However, I felt it was time to part ways. I realize that I had to retire the store. Every effort I made to promote the store didn’t produce anything fruitful. I decided to shift the Divas-N-Rides merchandise to this new revenue source. The main reason for the switch was I had more product options to create for store merchandise. In addition, I create gift cards for those who are having a hard time looking for a gift for others or themselves!

I just finished one of the most successful sales weekends from one of my revenue streams. I just had to re-examine how items are sold and how to increase sales without having to lose future revenues in the process. It’s been a while since I did a photoshoot for this website. It looks like late June or July could be the soonest I will be back in this current environment. I’m working on upgrading my account to ensure that photos from past events can be uploaded soon. I made some changes to my money so I can afford to make the necessary upgrades to improve this website. I also worked to ensure I have a steady stream of income when this global health crisis comes to an end. With the free time available, here’s a video from an event this website covered last year!

Happy Thursday! All this free time should be the time to create new content in the absence of any actual events taking place this spring. I also add a special deal with my eBay Store. They’re giving free listings until the end of April. I got a few boxes that I didn’t touch. Now, I can take advantage of this promotion. With the increase of listings, that will likely increase the revenue needed to sustain the website during the global health crisis that’s disrupting everyone’s life. If you want to support those who had their lives and career affected by this outbreak, the discount ticket hub Goldstar has created a donation page for those businesses who’ve been hit hard by this crisis. Show your support to the people and business that makes this community thrive!

Here’s an update on my situation. My daily driver is in the dreaded “Stick A Fork In It; It’s Done!” category. In other words, the car sustained too much damage from last week’s accident to be repaired. That sucks because I went to various events with this car. On the other hand, another ride was available for me until a new ride is available. So, I’ll look for a vehicle that has more space, more necessary features to drive my work and other creative projects. With that out of the way, There’s a good chance I won’t resume car scene and motorcycle scene coverage until May or June. All 3 jurisdictions in the D.M.V Region have issued Stay At Home Orders for all citizens. In other words, you can only go out for essential work, get essential items for your health and home, physical activities with social distancing, and essential businesses. That means you have to cross off all events for April until the curve is flatten big time. Therefore, I need to reschedule feature model photo-shoots and find something else to record. That means more free time to get my revenue sources up to date! If you haven’t heard, I created a new blog for the mother ship, Moore Photo Graphix. I’m also planning to add new content despite the lack of live events to attend. Until then, I do have something to keep you entertained

It’s been 2 weeks since the Covid-18 outbreak became a worldwide epidemic. I’ve been most of the time not at work home. It’s clear that the car show season is getting pushed back more to the final weeks of Spring. That means the event calendar needs to be updated daily. Even the warmer isn’t a guarantee without additional tools and steps needed to combat this illness. I’ve also been finding ways to generate sources of income due to the fact that the type of work I get booked for on Taskrabbit has been affected by the global health crisis. Last Week, I made some purchases on Craigslist to resell on either eBay, Amazon or Mercari. I went out of the house to pick up items that weren’t shipped to my house in accordance with my health and safety. However, my daily driver is in the shop because of an accident this past Monday. Therefore, I’m putting more focus on my dropshipping site and other selling platforms. I do have to report that I made a sale last night, and I’ll have other items sold on eBay by Sunday Night. Here’s some videos I made earlier this year that you can’t miss!

Normally, I would be changing the channels back and forth between March Madness and any photos from previous events I attend. However, the COVID-19 outbreak is throwing a wrench into things. I heard about the threat of the disease back in February. I was already taking the precautions that were needed to survive this crisis. A good portion of the events on the event calendar have been cancelled, pushed back, or delayed! I did schedule 2 photoshoots next month. Now, I’m not in a state of panic. I’m not rushing to see my investment accounts. I’m not fighting over consumer goods that people took more than enough to last. The irony of this whole situation is that I made $1,000 last week from a 3-day work project involving office furniture. I also made some sales with my eBay Store. I’m also working on adding new listings to the store since more and more people are staying indoors. I’m also working to add new galleries and content to the website to keep those who won’t be going anywhere will need to be entertained, or need a break from all the bad news in the media or social networks. This ain’t the time to live in fear. It’s time to face these uncertain future with courage, conviction, compassion and clarity.?

I’m not going to waste your time with this latest edition of the Daily Drive. I spent the past few days selling items on one of my revenue sources this week. I was able to have 3 successful sales this week despite the health scare that’s disrupted many people’s lives and livelihood. To say the disease and our response to it have put many lives in difficult positions is the understatement of the year. Now, it’s clear I need to make some proactive moves now. I’ve been spending more creating a reselling business with the various selling apps on my phone. I also decided to get out of the house because loneliness sucks! I also have to update the events page for the website since several events have been canceled or moved to a later date. It also means that photoshoots scheduled this month and next month will be affected heavily! However, this open time frame has also given me the opportunity to add more content in the eye candy section. I’m also working on a new revenue stream to help out until the situation changes for the better!

Wow! It’s been 2 weeks since I posted on the Daily Drive! Here’s an update that was long overdue. The crisis involving the COVID-19 has gotten everyone on edge! Stores can’t store enough water, paper products, disinfecting wipes, and more in stock. It’s time to make a stop here since everyplace I know is running low and then some. Formula 1, Formula E, and Moto GP had to pull the plug on their scheduled events because the locations were hit hard by COVID-19. South by Southwest Festival was canceled. Despite news of confirmed cases, I found out some events are still happening. I just added new shows and meets the event calendar. I just finished updating several revenue streams that have helped add more cushion to the website’s goal of attending several events and making the necessary upgrades to ensure new content is available daily!

I got those galleries set! I’m now putting the finishing touches on a photoshoot tomorrow. It had to be moved up due to the client’s schedule! Speaking of schedule, I had to remove 2 events from the event calendar that were supposed to happen next month. Despite the fact both events have been scrapped, I did find other events to replace them. With the new events added, I’m focusing now on increasing traction on one of many revenue streams to fund this website as the weather gets warmer, and more shows start getting added! Another way to keep this up and running is to join our Patreon Page! For $1, your name on a video sounds cool!

Whenever you’re reading this, Good Morning, Afternoon, or Good Evening! I’m making an update to the event calendar. Since Capitol Raceway doesn’t have a track owner, Import Face-Off has decided to remove the Capitol Raceway event from their calendar. I would rather have them either contact Maryland International Raceway, Cecil County Dragway, or Colonial Beach Dragway. It’s clear they didn’t have the time to wait for the situation to work out. However, there are new events added to the calendar to made up what was lost. I’m getting ready for another feature model photoshoot this weekend. I’m also working on other ways to collect funds needed to cover a majority of expenses occurred!  I got several revenue streams set up to get the funds needed!

If you’re viewing this on Tumblr, it’ll be on the top. I’m working to get the website upgraded so more images can be added from mobile devices. I plan to have them posted on the website before the end of the month. I already posted another feature model photo gallery live online last week. I also have another feature model gallery made available today. This morning, I made some updates to my Patreon page. I added new content to the page to show folks how active this is! I also made a major change to one of my pledges. If you pledge $1, you can get your name on one of my next videos. This weekend, I plan to cover the Motor Trend Auto Show in Downtown Baltimore and the Baltimore International Motorcycle Show at the Maryland State Fairgrounds. My goal is to get 250 $1 pledges by noon on 02/05/2020. If you want to continue to support this website, you can also visit the eBay store that has also help fund the website!

Good Afternoon or Good Evening, whenever you’re reading this. The 1st car show gallery of 2020 is now live on the website. This was so big I needed another photo gallery to cover the whole event. With that being said, I was working on the photo gallery when I heard that Kobe Bryant passed away. I think it was real until more news surfaced to confirm the worse. What makes this story heartbreaking was he, his daughter and members of basketball teams and their families were on the helicopter heading to basketball game. The one thing that made respect Kobe was his winning mindset. He operated with a win at all cost attitude. I also learned he was more interested in the process than the results. I also learned watched game films from a radio ad a few years ago. This hunger to do better was what made him a legend. He also took that with him in the post-basketball career. Too bad, the life after basketball part was gone too soon!

Good Afternoon, evening, or whenever you read this. It’s the 1st blog of 2020. I spent New Year’s Day promoting one feature model page while finishing up another feature model page. I was able to get this feature model gallery posted before 2019 was over. I got 2 photo shoots officially set up this month. I might some more booked either later this or next month depending on circumstances. I also spent some time offline finding new items to sell on either my eBay Store or Bonanza Marketplace Booth. I’ve been working on boosting my revenue streams to help fund the website without incurring any new debts that could keep it from expanding. Therefore, this website can check out more events happening this year and beyond. Some have there 2020 schedule up and running.

Next week, we have New Year’s Day. I also ready got parts of the 2020 calendar already set up. I also plan to posts some of the other photo shoots from the past couple of months. They’ll be divided in the feature model Gallery and Eye Candy Gallery. I also have one feature model photo shoot coming up this weekend. With any new year, it means this website will add more revenue streams to the already established revenue streams created this year. Therefore, we’ll provide visitors and loyal fans the content they need. Since we’re saying goodbye to 2019, here’s one of the most popular videos from the Divas-N-Rides Youtube Channel that got plenty of love!

There’s one week left before Christmas comes. That means everyone and their moms are rushing to finish their Christmas Holiday Gift Giving Plans done by next week. If you need gifts for your enthusiast friend or family, at least the Divas-N-Rides store is always open. If the Divas-N-Store isn’t your cup of tea, you can visit my eBay store. There are still some good gifts available to go to your loved ones by Christmas Day. It took a while to get one of the uncut versions of the feature model photo set that we posted earlier this year. I also got the 1st post of the Collide page I created today. It’s just the 1st step in making it a new revenue stream to support this website.

I also created an eye-candy gallery in conjunction with our previous feature model gallery posted several weeks ago. Recently, I have installed a new revenue stream to help fund the website by having to take any more money out of my own pocket. I was working with another company to help this website!

Good Afternoon! I’m in the process of doing a fall clean-up with both Thanksgiving and Christmas fast approaching. I also have a few feature model galleries that need to be completed for the month of November. Recently, I have been successful with one of the revenue streams in the past 4 days. Even though I added a new inventory for sale, I’m having issues with getting steady cash flow for the store. At least, I have several backup revenue streams in place to ensure this website will never run short of funding. Once I get those issues resolved, I’ll have more free time to take of the things I need to do.

Good Afternoon! I’m putting the finishing touches to another feature model photoshoot this week. I successfully executed a feature model photoshoot last week. Now, I need to get the post-production work out of the way so it can be seen and shared. I just made some updates to the website because of various changes dating back to the last Monday of October when I working on items outside the website. I just saw some major uptick in one of my revenue streams in the past few days. I’m seeing more successful sales in the store. I also added another revenue stream to help support the website. If you haven’t been to the Pateron page, now would be a great time to do so! I’m checking to see if there are any new events coming up before the big events happening next week! If it comes, you’ll hear it and see it here as it happens!

Good Morning! I’ve been tied up with iPhone repairs because I have wi-fi connectivity issues. I’ve been using workarounds to get the word out about another revenue stream to help support the other revenue streams that were already established! I also have to use workarounds to get the Youtube Channel updated. I’m also working to add new galleries to the feature model section. I just finished another new feature model page. I also have a few more this month to execute. I just updated our parent’s site IG page, and it has resulted in more traction on the viewer stats.

Happy Halloween! It looks like one of the events I was supposed to attend was moved to Friday due to the weather. Now, I have this and the upcoming Haltech World Cup Finals at M.I.R this weekend to attend. If you haven’t heard from me lately, that’s because I needed to get one of the featured model galleries posted this week. I also have to share it since this has a few surprises from this past month’s photoshoot. Here’s a new video to close out the month of October.

It’s been an active week for the D.N.R family. If you didn’t get to see the images galleries last weekend, We got them on this link and this link. I also spend the last few days getting the event calendar updated with all the new events that were posted. Some events were booked months in advance. I also got another eye-candy gallery up and running this week. There will be another feature model gallery psoted before the week is up. Most of the reason I haven’t been posting is that one of my revenue streams required my undivided attention. To make a long story short, It was one of the busiest Saturdays this month. I got those tasks taken care of. I also have several new sales set up this Sunday because I found out Sundays between 6-10 p.m. Eastern is when most users are online around that time frame. That explains how I have a sudden rush of active sales. With the weekend coming up, I have a video from this past week to share.

Good Afternoon! I spent the good part of this day adding a new gallery to the website. I’m catching up on the images I created, and I’m also getting ready for the cooler weather to arrive. I also have another feature model photoshoot set up this Monday. It’s due to the fact that one of the goto venues I’ve used in the past was not available at the timeframe I needed. That’s not the only scheduling update to share. I just added some new events for 2019 on the calendar page. I also made some changes to the Divas-N-Rides store. I just added some new graphics added this week. I plan to add new graphics to test which design will produce the best sales. Now, we got another great video to share.

Good Evening! I just added a brand new event gallery from this past weekend before my latest photoshoot today. Before that, I came across this article about an unlikely and very popular holiday in China that is popular with retailers in the region. To make a long story short, it was specially created by college students as their version of Single Awareness Day. For a more current American holiday, Subaru is holding a special day for the underdogs 2 weeks from now. Here’s a video from last weekend’s event!

Good Afternoon! It’s the weekend edition. I just finished another feature gallery page this week. If you haven’t got a chance to see, now is a great time. I got another big event to cover this weekend. I also have other car shows and motorcycle shows to check out this month. If you’re wondering what’s happening outside the website, I made some changes to one of my revenue sources. I also have another revenue source that was updated earlier this week. With each revenue source updated, I can have more funds for future events. You can also stop by our Patreon Page as we add new content this weekend. Finally, we got a video to share to start your weekend!

I’m also getting things squared up for future feature models photoshoots in October. If you haven’t seen this week’s featured model, you can view right here!

Good Tuesday Morning! Back from an eventful weekend. I got another feature model photoshoot this week. I’m also working on getting the images from the past 2 photoshoots uploaded to this website as well. If you haven’t got a chance to check out the latest photo gallery that was posted this Sunday, you can get there now. Beside this website, I’ve been working and update one of my primary revenue sources this month. I got another revenue source reestablished after some technical issues. Hopefully, it creates enough revenue to keep the site running. Finally, I got another video for one of my events this past weekend!

Good Afternoon! It took me a while, but I finally got a major issue with one of my funding sources. That was drama I didn’t need in my life. Hopefully, I can move on from this issue and focus on the things that matter. I have events to cover this weekend. In addition, the events page has been updated with new events. I’m also working on setting other funding sources to avoid any major disruptions that caused unwanted and unnecessary headaches in the meantime. Therefore, we can give you more amazing content like this video from this past summer!

Wow! It’s September already! It’s been a wild summer for this website. I got the chance to cover several shows, including the ones that weren’t on the radar earlier this in the year. I also was able to make some amazing videos for the website. If you haven’t seen them yet, you can find them here! I just finished posting feature model sets featuring Alex, Helen, Shannon. I was able to find time to create some amazing feature model photo sets this summer with such amazing models. If you didn’t get to see my feature model sets with Christina and Nikol from this past June, now, you got a chance to see what you were missing. I also have a few future feature model photoshoots coming up this September. I also got the photo galleries from this past Labor Day Weekend up. Here’s what you missed from last Saturday and this past Monday

It looks like I saw some amazing events that are coming up this month and later in the year. Therefore, the event calendar has been updated to reflect the new changes that were made in the past few days. You can expect new content added in the upcoming days.

Good Afternoon! I finally got the Clean Culture/Import Expo FedEx Field Festival images posted online. I had to break it into 3 different pages! I also have the 1st batch of images from the June 1st Feature model photo shoot. I’m working on another feature model set this week. For wondering where I have been, I’ve been updating one of my revenue streams as much as adding new content to this website! I’m starting this new trend of starting new auctions on Sundays since 6-10 pm is the best time period of the website. Before I go, I have to share this video from Truck Wars 2 weeks ago!

It’s been a while since I posted anything recently on the Daily Drive. I’m getting ready for Sunday’s Clean Culture/Import Expo FedEx Field Festival. This will the 3rd visit to this event.

In addition, I also completed the 1st video from this event.

Happy Wednesday everyone! I just got a rude awakening this morning. I attempted to buy postage for an item sold on one of my revenue sources. Unfortunately, I found out that my PayPal account was in the red. I had to move funds to get this issue resolved. Now, I’m working to get my other revenue source up and running to cover any unpleasant surprises that could come up. I got the highlights from all 3 events I covered online yesterday.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Don’t forget to thanks of military members this weekend. Now, let’s get to the important part of this post. The unofficial Summer Kick-off is here! It’s going to be awesome! We created a route to cover each event in the 3 day weekend. In addition, we got a tentative agreement from a potential feature model for future photo shoots this summer. We already got a new eye candy special posted online. BTW, you can get your last minute summer swag from the Divas-N-Rides store and/or some of our other stores.

Memorial Day Weekend has arrived! It’s one of our favorite holidays! It’s also the time this website starts to amp up the coverage of automotive and motorcycle events in the Mid-Atlantic Region. It’s also the time when we’re looking for future candidates of our feature model page. After 2 months of unexpected chaos and reschedules, we’re finally got things under control. It’s been a while since I was in Camden Yards. This Saturday make it more the merrier. With the sun out, more fun comes out!

They say life happens when you’re busy doing other things. I was able to add new content to the galleries due to personal and professional reasons. I also had some traction with one of the revenue streams this month. I also made some changes to the events calendar. There were some recent disruptions with the daily planner. However, those issues were resolved. Now, we’re focusing on the events happening this Memorial Day Weekend. I’m excited about the Import Expo event at Camden Yards. FYI, tickets will be sold on site! I’m also excited about the 2 other events to cover before heading to Downtown Baltimore. In addition, I’m heading back to P.G. County for The Rev Nation Car Olypmics. Finally, I’m reworking the feature model photo shoot schedule. It was a chaotic past 2 months. Hopefully, everything will be more streamlined as the summer months arrive.

Wow! It’s been a while since I wrote this! I’ve been putting the final touches on an upcoming photo shoot this Thursday. I have made some changes to the events calendar because weather caused some events to move them back a week. Oh, I’m seeing more action with my other revenue sources!

It’s been days since I made a blog posting. I have made some updates to the events calendar. I did add some more events for the month of May and June. I also have a new video and gallery available to share with my fans! Last month was a crazy month because there were plenty of unexpected changes that occurred with my schedule and revenue sources. I was able to get those issues resolved. I just updated one of my revenue sources this week to get the funding needed available for upcoming events this month. I had to scramble to get the funds needed to keep the domain from expiring. With that out of the way, I can now focus on getting more content posted and more sales from my online store.

Street Outlaws are coming to town this weekend. I’m very excited about this news. For those wondering where I have been, I covered another event this past weekend. I also had to make changes to the schedule for the addition of brand new events.

Happy Tuesday! I just made some changes to the Youtube page, one of my revenue streams that resulted in a new sale, and a few updates to the events calendar. I also added some new Galleries! The Antrim Diesel Days event recap is now online. You can see the images here, or you can see the video highlights! I also have the videos and photos from the JBM/Singery Monthly Night Meet online now! Recently, I saw an ad on Craigslist for a photo/video studio available to rent. I’m looking for another location that can do automotive and motorcycle photo and video shoots. I’m in contact with them to engage in future events later in the year.

Greetings! I took time off for the Thanksgiving Holiday. My phone has been fixed, and Some of my apps that got me work in the past are now working. That means I can not worry about running into any cashflow and revenue issues in the upcoming days before Christmas. I’m seeing more activity with one of my revenue streams. It’s also has seen a spillover effect into other items directly and indirectly connected to this website. I’m in the process of finishing all the images from several feature model photo shoots in the past 2 months that will be posted here and all other platforms. I also got a chance to share a video that we didn’t a chance to post back in October. So, here it is for you to enjoy.

Good evening! It took me a while, but I finally got the JBM Season Opener page done. This Friday starts another weekend of multiple photo shoots. I also got the apparel from the Divas-N-Rides ready for each model I’m working with. This is also the start of the Washington Auto Show. I’m attending this event since this website covers it almost every year. In addition, I plan to make more videos to share on this website. After posting 2 last weekend, I’m confident more videos will come!

Whoa! March went by fast. I thought it would be a quiet month. I’m close to finishing my other feature model photo shoots. I’m editing images from the weekend’s events by the Sunday night.

Good Afternoon or Good Evening wherever you are! Here’s what happened on the website while most of you were away. On Friday, I added a new gallery to the Flashback Friday page. Yesterday, I added a new gallery to the Eye Candy section. I’m in contact with 2 previous artists that I collaborated in the past to set up new galleries next month. I’m working to set up the studio and funds to have them in place for July. I’m also working on adding new streams of income to ensure cash will be available Hopefully, I can post a new car show, motorcycle show, etc. It’s been 5 months since I attended any event. While it sucks that many events I planned for are gone, I made some moves to stay above the fray. It also made me refocus on other things. I also generate income from platforms like Mercari, eBay, Bonanza, and more. I also created new designs for the Divas-N-Rides store and the updated Shopify store! Now, I got to work on the skills I promise myself to learn today. Catch you again next time!

It’s been a while since I wrote here. I have been focused on other things in the area! My local region just started phase 1 of reopening last week. Maryland International Raceway is back to racing. However, they haven’t allowed fans back just yet. So, we have to wait until the end of June/early July to reach a point where public gatherings can go safely. Now, this is a game of making up for the lost time. Speaking of lost time, I saw more traction with one of my main revenue sources this past week. I’m also making updates to Divas-N-Rides based merchandise on this online store. This week, I got a few galleries that will be added to this website as the road to recovery begins!

Let me get this off my chest!

Racism is wrong!

Police Brutality is wrong!

Violating the 4th, 5th, and 8th Amendments are wrong!

Turning a blind eye to human rights abuse is wrong

Making excuses for cruel and unusual punishment is wrong!

Using peaceful protests to engage in theft and vandalism is wrong!

Linking criminal acts to peaceful protests is wrong!

Pretending racism doesn’t exist is wrong!

Supporting those who won’t fight racism needs to stop now!

BTW, do we need more proof Trickle Down Economics creates more problems than they solve? If you’re fed up with police brutality, racially motivated violence, and the lack of humanity from those in position, it’s time to take action. Here’s what you can do about the problem.

  1. Educate Yourself: Loyalty Bookstore has a list of books for those who interested in combating racism.
  2. Support the cause: Here’s a resource guide that everyone needs to have! Here’s another great guide to help out!

I leave you with this quote from Dante Alighieri; “The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who, in times of great moral crisis, maintain their neutrality.”
