  • There is one stoplight in the center of this small town. The town itself is surrounded by a seemingly endless desert. The town’s population is sparse. We have a few gas stations and a handful of places to grab a bite. There are also several motels if you want to rest for the night and wake up to a bright desert morning. We have no shortage of churches here. Religion and faith seem to be basic needs for our townspeople like food and clothing. We also have a few places to gamble here, being this is after all Nevada. And bars; of course we have bars here but they are still outnumbered by churches.
     
  • As kids, my brother and I and our friends, Jessie and Danny Poppowich, ran one of the most successful summertime lemonade stands on the Jersey shore.  With luck on our side, a great location, some gentle persuasion and a great scam, we raked in the dough like the Kardashians. We took our enterprise seriously and it was not for sissies
