About Divas-N-Rides

I'm a DC based photo enthusiasts who loves cars, trucks, motorcycles and anything with an motor inside. I started this website in 2005 focusing on 2 items I love: beautiful women and automotive/motorcycle culture. It's been a crazy journey over this past decade. I plan to return to what I love this year after a brief hiatus!

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!

Happy Friday! I just finish posting 2 feature model galleries this Friday! The 1st gallery features Maine model Maya. The 2nd gallery features New York by Taiwan based model Julie. 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! I also made updates to the Patreon Page for Divas-N-Rides! If you want to have your name in one of our videos, just pledge $1 and you’ll see your name is the latest video coming up soon!

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.

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!
