We are more often likely to come across people who are willing to tell you everything they have! From cars, to money, luxury things. They define success from the material things they have! Very few times in life do we come across "real" people who are willing to tell their struggle. How they got to where they are. People are so quick to judge and jump on the band wagon to success that they over look what is truely important about success. What is important is how that person got there. What they have went through to get to where they are. Like living in cars, and only having 2 dollars in ur pocket and not know whether or not you are going to eat that day. People tend to foget where they came from in the bright lights of success. They dont feel comfortable enough to tell a perfect stranger about their struggles in life, they would much rather tell a complete stranger what they have. Never knowing that if they would have told that person how they got to where they are, it jus may have motivated them enough to be successful in their own lives. If we spent more time doin what Terrance Burney does, and open our hearts up to people in need and share our life struggles to others it might jus inspire that one homeless person, or that one inspiring singer or whom ever they may be to have "GREATNESS" in their lives! We are so quick to see the bad in people rather than the good. People would rather bring someone down than bring people up. I think it is wonderful that one person can take time out of their life to motivate perfect strangers to be and do better. Instead of taking his hardships in life as excuses to fail, he has taken them to help others. If we did more of what he does, the world would be a better place for all! Im so glad that someone told me about the textbook because i know there are days in my life that i need that little pick me up! Its jus a wonderful thing that i will continue to tell people about because like a chain reaction good things will come from jus one person!
I love you Don Barmbrick!!!!!
This is your best column yet! I will contact you for a personal reading. I own a business in Plymouth and would like to do a event.
This is amazing! Your energy is what Detroit needs!
who are these people anyways? it doesn't say. are they just a crew of random douche bags?
jeez, how many moustache-beards can you fit on one cover? Thanks, now I can't stop vomiting. That poor girls expression says it all, she's probably choking to death from all the cologne.
nice! I am impartial to open toe boots, they were def cute with summer & fall outfits.. pedi showoff is always great, i am not against open toe shoes.. It's just when I start seeing them with insulate & fur it's start getting oxymoronish haha..
UGGS have been a bad trend the last DECADE.. that needed to stop a long time ago.. to me, they are just plain UGGLY lol
...I loved this! You basically have put all of the 2010 fashion trends in the right category...but the open toe boot, maybe not so much? I have like three pair of those and they serve dual purposes; if you rock them with skinny jeans...they not only give extra height, but they allow you to show off your pedicure...and most importantly...they are just oh so girly...the boys love them..lol..
Also, what do you think about UGGS...ugh! I think those pankcake looking boots are just downright unattractive, but my friends think they are the best thing since chocolate...yes chocolate...what do you think?
My point exactly Margdar, cute comes in all seasons!
I love to boots in the top collage! And the little bubble dress :)
Love that gold outfit! Who says you can't look cute in the winter?
He should run for governor and Rock this State. He F's the system right back, in a big way. And I love it. Job well done Allen. Later $ucker$!!!!!

I believe the wrong article has been posted here.
Richard Bak has chosen to copy from my book, Detroit's Woodmere Cemetery, published in 2004 by Arcadia Publishing. Listed here are some examples of what he says about Woodmere Cemetery:
1. In my book, I wrote, "Some of the trees harvested were used to make wooden coffins in the carpenter shop, which no longer exists." In Bak's book, he states, "For years, cemetery workers took advantage of the heavily wooded grounds to harvest trees to make coffins in the carpenter's shop."
2. In my book, "In November of that year, Anna Maria Schwartz became the first person buried at the cemetery in section C." In Bak's book, "One November day in 1868, workers dug a grave for Anna Marie Schwartz--the first of many burials to come to Woodmere Cemetery." This information could only be found in Woodmere's records to which Bak had no access.
3. In my book, "The owners took advantage of the law that took effect on February 19, 1869, stating saloons were t be kept at a distance of a quarter of a mile from the entrance of a cemetery." In Bak's book, "At the time Woodmere opened, a new state law prohibited saloons from opening within a quarter-mile of a cemetery's entrance." Again, Bak could not have known about this unless he had read the stockholder meeting minutes which he never used. I have been the only one to have access to Woodmere's archives.
4. In my book, "In 1929, the Detroit Crematorium and Columbarium closed its doors...so the Detroit Crematorium and Columbarium's ashes and niches were brought to Woodmere." In Bak's book, "By the time the Detroit Crematorium closed its oven doors in 1929 and transferred its ashes and niches to Woodmere Cemetery..." Once again, this information was only available from Woodmere's archives.
5. In my book, "A portrait of Barbara Schorr, the first person to be cremated in Michigan and the Northwest, hangs near the crematorium. Her cremation took place on December 10, 1887, at the Detroit Crematorium and Columbarium." In Bak's book, "Here, on December 10, 1887, Barbara Schorr became the first person in the entire Northwest to be cremated." He could not have known this information without copying it from my book.
6. In my book, I discuss the deaths of Edward John Lutman and the Gores who were buried during a strike by the cemetery workers. He talks about these very same burials even though there were many, many other deaths that took place at this time. Without going through Woodmere's archives, he could not have known about this.
7. Bak also states in his book that a man who died a few months after the Ford Hunger Strike could not be buried at Woodmere because he was black: "Because he was black, Williams was not allowed to be buried with the other slain activists at Woodmere Cemetery;" This is outrageously wrong. Since Woodmere's opening day in 1869, blacks have been buried at Woodmere. In the early records, "colored" is noted in the files for black people. Also, starting around 1922, Charles Diggs, who was a prominent black funeral director in the Detroit area, handled over 500 burials at Woodmere, including the cremation of Curtis Williams whom Bak refers to in his book.
Street Legal Customs does not respect its customers, and will not hesitate to scam you out of thousands of dollars. My experience with them was horrible, and I would strongly encourage would-be clients to find another place. I went to Street Legal to have a security alarm installed on my car. I didn't know it at the time, but Street Legal was NOT an authorized installer of this alarm. I found this out later on from the manufacturer of the alarm system when they told me my alarm would not function properly.
When I picked up my car, they told me there might be glitches and I could return the next day to have them correct. Just as they said, I found many glitches with their installation, including that the system drained my battery so much that my car was unreliable for driving. I returned the next day to have them correct the glitches, and was met outside by the owner's father who proceeded to tell me there were no technicians there and no one would be able to help me until Monday, two days later. He wouldn't give me an answer when I asked him if Street Legal was an authorized dealer of my alarm. I told him I wasn't going to pay Street Legal until they had fixed my alarm, and he began to yell profanities at me, and threatened to sue me, saying that he was a lawyer. He told me to leave the store, and continued trying to intimidate me by saying he was a lawyer and would take me to court if I didn't pay him. By the end of this scene, I was afraid the man would physically assault me. According to a message board I found online, at least one other customer claims this man bullied him by saying he was a lawyer and threatening to sue him when the client complained. http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread…
In the end, I had to go to another shop to have them remove the alarm system at a substantial cost.
I will never return to Street Legal and would not recommend anyone to them.
