Odyssey of a Texas Sailor: The true story of a country boy’s dream to sail solo across the Atlantic Ocean.

by Drew Paige

An adventurous soul

When Dean Meeks decided he wanted to learn to fly an airplane, he took some lessons and bought himself a small Cessna – which he sometimes landed on a two-lane asphalt country road near his house and parked in the front yard.When the idea of learning to sail a boat occurred to the lifelong central Texas dairy farmer, he bought a used 21-foot sloop from an ad in the newspaper and taught himself to cruise around a nearby lake. After his youngest daughter grew up and was stationed in England with the U.S. Air Force, Meeks began to dream a much bigger dream.

Daydream to reality

“Why couldn’t I – a self-taught, proven sailor of fresh water lakes – purchase a craft in England, sail it back to Houston, and make a handsome profit on its resale at that oil-rich port?” Meeks wrote in his journal.And that’s exactly what he did. With no experience aboard an ocean-going vessel of any kind, as either a crew member or a captain, this former Texas A&M Aggie set out aboard his newly-purchased 30-foot sloop to sail solo across the Atlantic Ocean.

No place like home

Follow along as Meeks recounts this incredible journey in his highly entertaining daily journal writings, along with stories from his life on the farm that helped shape an unforgettable adventurous spirit.

My Fake Millions: Based on a true story

by Karolina Robinson

We all lie once in a whileâ?¦
Let’s just be honest here for a second. We lie about our past relationships, weight, age, partners, I mean sometimes we lie for no reason whatsoever. It’s just our way to “posh” things up, ‘cos let’s agree, nobody ever lied to make it worse for themselves. We always try to get something out of it.
Edward Lee made up a lie to save his relationship with his wife. A story which grabbed the attention of the whole of the United Kingdom back in the noughties.
Now, where are the boundaries of lying? And how can one measure the lie? ‘Cos when it came to Edward, his was a massive pile of bullshit that, surprisingly, saved his marriage.
