    Halley’s Comet is the most famous comet of all the comets I have ever read about. It was named after the great Edmund Haley, who was born in 1656 and obviously lived until he died in 1742. It is often forgotten about due to its long absences from our skies. This beauty will only orbit the sun every seventy-six years. Halley’s Comet last graced us with a sighting in 1986 and is not scheduled for return flight until 2062. For this I am a little sad that this comet will not come around again until I am far too old and senile to know what the heck I am looking at. Most likely, as a seventy-eight year old man, I will stare up at the sky, and shake my cane in a violent fashion, telling that bright light to go away so I can sleep. Well, enough about me--let’s get back to our topic.

    Let's face it, whether you actually "like the taste" or you're just getting wired on caffeine for another late night of whatever, coffee and tea are an integral part of most of our daily lives. Now, good tea is mostly an exercise in buying quality tea, a foofy teapot, and a collection of some cool, handmade cups. For most of us though, truly the big deal is coffee, since we drink so much of the stuff. Here's some quick, solid advice on dramatically improving the taste and quality of what you stain your teeth with every a.m. And we all realize how critical that is because, God knows, skipping our daily cup (or pot) of Joe will make most of us look like a heroin addict going through withdrawals.

    A lot of men that I am friends with are against cooking with cast iron pots and pans. For one, they do not want to buy cast iron because the price of cast iron is often higher than Teflon or other types of cookware. The other reason is that they also think seasoning and caring for cast iron cookware is too difficult and not worth the time and effort it takes to get the job done.

    First of all, let me combat the fear of the price of cast iron pots and pans. I have purchased a lot of high end pots and pans, and after doing some price comparisons, the cast iron equivalents are pretty close on price. You can find good deals on new and used cast iron cookware on websites like Amazon.com and also on Craigslist.org. ...

    I like 'em Saucy, Saucy, Saucy! There's nothing that makes a dish tastier that putting a little sauce on it. Now, there are also gravies and syrups to drizzle onto, well, whatever you're drizzling it onto, but we'll address most here as sauces. Learn about how they're made and a little about the classic sauces, and you'll find it easy to whip up any sauce, gravy, or syrup. In fact, if you learn about these, making your own soup isn't far behind. Scary, I know.
    For the most part, sauces are comprised of a Base, Flavoring, and, typically, a Thickener. I'll also ...

    The most important thing to realize about divorce is that although your marriage may be over, your life definitely is not. We all have to weather storms at times throughout our lives. This storm is no different than any other, as every storm eventually runs out of rain. The clouds will drift away and the sun will shine brightly on your face soon enough. The hurts will lessen in time and life will go on.

    There are no winners and no losers in divorce. Both parties have committed wrongs and no one is without blame. So be sure that you do not beat yourself up over your past actions. However, be sure, especially if you have children, that your future dealings with your ex-wife are polite and peaceful. Never bad mouth your former spouse to anyone, most importantly your children. It will only hurt them and eventually force them to choose sides. No child should have to choose which parent they love more. ...

    The bald eagle is the bird that is always recognized as the national symbol of the United States of America, appearing on the country's seal.

    Its Latin scientific name Haliaeetus leucocephalus; is broken down as follows - hali = salt, aeetus = eagle, leuco = white, cephalis = head; therefore, bald eagles are not really bald, but "white headed." The adult is mainly brown with a white head and tail. It can have a wing span of nearly 8 feet, lives around 25 years and is found in every state except Hawaii. At one point, bald eagles were on the brink of extinction in America, but its populations recovered and they were removed from the list of endangered species on July 12, 1995, and transferred to the list of threatened species. They were removed from the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife in the lower 48 states on June 28, 2007.

    Brotherly love may be vanishing today, but in centuries past it was an important part of the societies that existed in those times. Having a friend that was more like a brother during medieval times was important to one's survival. In those times, there was little justice for a man due to the limited amount of sheriffs, lawyers, judges and courts. Oftentimes, a friend was a man's only route for him to get justice. There was no welfare system back then, so men often relied on each other to see them through good and bad times. A man needed a best friend he could count on to assist him with food, money or shelter if he were to encounter hard financial times. Men that fought along side each other in war developed a brotherly love for one another. Entrusting your life to one another on a daily basis forged an unbending trust among these men. When men count on each other in those ways, deep abiding love for another will be the result.

    There are many great fictional and nonfictional accounts of brotherly love seen in history, after which men today can pattern a friendship of brotherly love. Some of these great relationships were between men that would lay down their lives for each other, avenge one another, and commit to one another as friends and brothers for life. ...

    Maestro Bartolomeo Beretta was a master gun barrel maker living in Gardone. In 1526, Bartolomeo was paid by the Arsenal of Venice to make 185 arquebus barrels. The nearly 500-year-old bill of sale for those firearms can be located in the company's archives, making Beretta the oldest manufacturing company in the world. The Beretta family has maintained complete ownership of the company for fifteen generations. Ugo Gussalli Beretta and his two sons, Pietro and Franco, still maintain leadership of Beretta today.

    The Beretta family has been making firearms for kings, princes, sportsmen and the armies of the world for nearly five centuries. Today, Beretta’s output is around 1,500 weapons a day, with more than 75% of its arms being exported to about one hundred countries. Their firearms are used around the world for civilian, law enforcement, and military purposes. The Beretta 92F (which I used to personally own) has been the standard issued sidearm for the United States Military since 1985. Beretta is also famous for the shooting clothes and accessories it manufactures.

    With American companies, such as Hostess, going bankrupt, and other historical American retail companies closing or being bought out, there must be something to learn about business from the Beretta family and their company. ...
