We have built skyscrapers, world class educational centers and even managed bury an entire portion of the sh*ttiest traffic jam in American history. We have billionaires that were raised in these streets along with some of the biggest names in the arts. Our streets have produced world class fighters, NHL hockey players and Medal of Honor recipients. We are resilient, smart and tough….but do you know what we are clueless about? Wildlife….
City kids are capable of many things….but throw a raccoon or in this case a hawk into the mix and we don’t know wtf to do.
A peaceful resolution to any potential conflict where our sons and daughters are asked to put their necks on the line is always the most desirable option. But today I had a very interesting conversation with a gentleman who served in the Israeli Army. Not only did he serve, he was an officer, born and raised in Tel Aviv. When I asked him what he thought of this “Iran situation” his answer was short and profound.
“You never have to make peace with your friends, only your enemy. The world has a habit of letting history repeat itself but Israel is constantly trying to stop it from repeating itself.
I’m sitting here 14 hours later still thinking about what he said….and I don’t think I will ever forget it.
So my buddy Ben calls me up and is like “Dude…we gotta help Dot Rats take better care of their cahs.” and I’m like “your absolutely right…there’s some pretty busted looking cahs driving around the hood these days…..it’s embarrassing. But how do you suggest we solve this epidemic doobie?” and he’s like “WTF dude? Send em to my shop.”
Actually, Ben Cochran has been a close friend of mine for 20 years. One day while working for Blue Cross Blue Shield over in Quincy he decided he wanted to work for himself and build his own detailing business. A lot of people thought he was crazy to walk away from such a good job. It wasn’t always easy, but through his excellent work and loyal customers, Ben has built Cochran Auto Detailing into one of the best detailing shops around. It’s been a decade and he now owns 2 locations in Weymouth.
He’s even worked with the Red Sox a few occasions.
Ben understands the science behind keeping your automobile at showroom condition. He has literally immersed himself in his trade over the years and deals with latest technologies in car finishes, interiors and window tinting. This is not a car wash that sells detailing services as a secondary option….these are true professionals.
