This site is old - older than the three WalMarts that are within driving distance of the old hacienda. Not that I'm
trying to give free publicity to WalMart; I'm not. I haven't been too fond of those folks ever since the manager of the
New Port Richey Sam's Club called security on me. He had been giving me a hard time about refunding the price of the gifts
my mother had sent down for Christmas when I told him I was going to tell Ma not to shop at Sam's any more.
You would have thought I had threatened to blow the place up the way he started screeching. As for me, I got the hell
out of there pronto and mailed the crap back to Jersey. Needless to say, that's why I do most of my gift shopping online.

equipment and accessories.
Good old American boy that I am, I figured I'd try to capitalize on my love of pro sports and I created baseball,
basketball and football pages. There visitors could buy books, posters, equipment and apparel.
And my list of web pages continued to grow:

them off until the beginning of the next month. That prospect was scary, so I went out and purchased my own domain, www.aceswebworld.com,
and have been spending most of my time since developing web pages featuring books & authors, fine art, baseball, football, basketball,
NASCAR stock car racing, poker and pool & billiards under that banner.
Yet, my original web pages are still up and running and log a substantial amount of visits.
I've also joined the blog revolution with two entries, my pool blog
and my Tampa Bay Media Watch blog.
Welcome! I hope you enjoy your visit.
