The Weekend Drive: 06/07/2020

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!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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!
