My daughter is helping a friend (who is the nephew of the famed late Buffalo Jim) list hundreds of collectibles and antiques on Ebay as well as a large number of guns at another auction site.  One of the items is Buffalo Jim’s Rolls Royce shown below – just one of the many very unique items she has recently photographed and posted on Ebay.  This was Buffalo Jim’s personal car.


James “Buffalo Jim” Barrier (March 22, 1953-April 6, 2008), born in Buffalo, New York, was an American wrestling promotor in Las Vegas.

The Buffalo Jim estate includes a large collection of celebrity memorabilia, from vehicles — to a lock of Elvis‘s hair.

Also included in his collection were more cars such as a Jensen Interceptor that once belonged to Wayne Newton, and a pink Cadillac of Kid Rock’s that was used during the rocker’s proposal to Pamela Anderson.

To view all items that are currently listed for auction – go to Ebay User ID:   ultra-sell

FRESH and EASY…I’m hooked! A great place to food shop

Finally, a neighborhood grocery store that has everything you need but is not the size of two football fields like most huge mega-stores today.  The food selection is awesome, budget priced and there are many health-conscience items to choose from as well.  I really love this store….if there’s one near you, you should give it a try.  You won’t be disappointed!

People want fresh and healthy food choices.   People want things to be easy. 

Fresh and Easy hires friendly people and offers high-quality food at budget prices.

They also offer easy-to-prepare meals and share Fresh & Easy™ Ideas on their web site that make busy lives easier. 

Fresh & Easy is a good neighbor who cares about the environment,  including energy efficient equipment in their stores and operations. And since they’re  a neighborhood market, they recruit from the local area, reduce travel time, and encourage neighborhood shopping.

A simple shopping experience with everything you need right in the neighborhood.


Fruits and vegetables are hand-selected from farms they know and trust, and they date-code the produce so you always know when it’s fresh.

The meat, fish and poultry are always high-quality.   They carry a range of beef raised right here in the U.S. with no antibiotics or hormones.

The fresh&easy™ milk and butter come from cows that have not been treated with rBST, and their eggs come from cage-free chickens.

The  fresh&easy™ kitchen products are made with their own high quality ingredients, and like all the fresh&easy™ products, they contain no artificial colors, flavors and no added trans fats. They’re all delivered daily to their stores, so they’re always fresh.

Whenever possible, fresh&easy™ uses local farmers and suppliers. Why wouldn’t they? After all, there is such a wide variety of farms and growers located right in California.

Check out their website with weekly specials, recipes and more at

An excerpt from the web site:

Smaller than the usual supermarket, our neighborhood sized stores are easily accessible and offer everything from everyday staples to gourmet items. Lots of fresh and wholesome food choices, including prepared meals and organic foods, make healthy eating easy and affordable.

In particular, our own fresh&easy™ line of products has no added trans fats and no artificial colors or flavors.  And with our in store Kitchen Table you can taste our products before you buy them. The simple packaging and labels on our private brand helps you see exactly what you’re bringing home – great food you can trust.
