If you follow this blog, you'll remember I predicted seismic activity and it happened within 72 hours of my prediction, over in Japan.However, with all the seismic activity going on around me (central California continues to shake and now Mt. St. Helens just north of me is coming alive) I need to quote myself from my follow-up post on September…

I know Blair and Bush share the same principled style of leadership. I just wish President Bush was able to articulate it as well as Blair. Wow. Blair is an absolutely amazing man and leader. England is extremely fortunate to have him at the helm during these trying times.Here is an excerpt of his recent speech, I'm assuming to Parliament.…

The scary season is fast approaching. I've got an idea you can use to make some money this season.Sell those really nifty costumes. Here's a place that sells all those neat ones like a large piece of pizza and a can of spam. My personal favorite is the one made for a couple. The man is a big electrical plug…

I just saw a link from Drudge that touts Martha Stewart's prison number is going to be 55170-054. So, being the opportunistic person I am, I immediately went to godaddy.com to see if I could register it in dot com form and IT'S ALREADY TAKEN. Can you believe that? Somebody beat me to it.The whois wasn't working when I attempted…

One of my current projects is selling t-shirts with political messages. It's obviously a good time to sell those types of shirts.I happen to be fairly handy with some of the latest graphic programs, so I've designed them myself. I've put an extra touch to them as well. Since I own a collectible business, this is a natural for me.…

I'm sure we've all heard of the immigrant story. How a family of immigrants come from another country, all live in a one bedroom apartment, get menial jobs, save, open a business of their own, all of them work hard while continuing to scrimp... etc, etc.As native Americans (I mean those of us born here, not the indigenous variety) we…

With the explosion of online purchasing, this means there are plenty of packages coming to people's doors with no one home to accept them.Why not become a local private postal delivery person? What you would do is provide your clients a "shipping" address that they can input when they order something to be shipped to them. That shipping address is…

This is a great article about the widsom of staying put in Iraq for now. It's written by a classics professor and military historian. He gives a really good perspective on the Iraq war as compared to other wars in the past.

I just read over at Greedy Girl that Amazon is giving unadvertised discounts to their customers who they know (by way of cookies) are using their new search engine, A9, on a regular basis. It's not much, but it's enough to make people start talking about it, which, in turn, drives more traffic to their search engine. In my opinion,…

About.com has an article with some great entrepreneur quotes. Some of my favorites:"An entrepreneur tends to bite off a little more than he can chew hoping he'll quickly learn how to chew it.- Roy Ash, co-founder of Litton Industries"Business opportunities are like buses, there's always another one coming."- Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Enterprises"I never perfected an invention that I…

I came across a blog this morning. She's a lifelong Democrat and she basically goes off. But I think it's a good read for my Democrat readers out there who may be one of those seemingly millions of Americans who seem to hate Bush for some reason.If you have a couple minutes, read her latest post and the over 100…

Sorry... been away longer than ususal from blogging. I have been moving not only my home but my office as well. All at the same time and still trying to get work done in the process. What a nightmare.This latest business idea of mine came to me during my move. My glasses broke a few days back. They were over…

I woke up this morning to what I expected, major earthquake activity. I went to bed last night convinced that the activity would happen in the next 24 hours and I was right. There were two sizeable quakes in Japan only 5 hours apart. They were even announced on Drudge's news page, which is pretty much the litmus test for…

Hopefully, you've been reading my blog now for a while and you have come to realize that I'm reasonably sane, lucid and not prone to going off the deep end. :-)With that said, I have given a lot of thought to this entry before posting it. Only because I don't want my readers to think I'm loopy. But, based on…
