It is usual for bored shoppers to stroll down aisles admiring new stock. While women can get lost in clothes stores, men like to wander inside hardware shops.

A good number of men will admit to walking through a hardware store without the intention of purchasing anything, though hoping to find something interesting.

Hardware stores are fascinating places. They stock dangerous items and machinery, which most men find intriguing. But as exciting as the items are, shoppers know not to touch anything on display. Well, some adults are not aware of this unspoken rule.

His performance attracted quite a crowd. But he was so deep in the music that the commotion didn’t distract him. He kept up his Boogie Woogie fast tempo performance.

The Boogie Woogie is a genre that first started in the 1870s among African Americans. The style blew up in the 1920s and quickly spread to the rest of the world. However, to find a person in this day and age who can so perfectly and passionately perform the Boogie Woogie is a rare occurrence.
