Fedor Jeftichew

by Doggedly Philly… I hate being human. I hate traffic, I hated politics, and I hate TV. Most of all though, I hate having to have a job? No other species on Earth has to have a job. The eagle in the sky doesn’t. Neither does the bear in the woods, or the dolphin in…

The Mother of All Cars

by Motherly Philly… When Donald R. “Dobie” Dobiemeyer won the grand prize—the first ever so-called “Mother of All Cars” from Universal Motors—he knew he was in for the ride of his life.  What he didn’t know was exactly what kind of ride that would be.

There was a great wall in the country.  It…
