I recently started another blog to chronicle the demise of the daily newspaper. But it soon became apparent there need not be any specific blogging on that topic since it's becoming such common knowledge and with so many outlets covering the most important of news regarding the demise of the newspaper. I subscribed to a Google newsfeed based on keywords…

I've finally gotten around to commercializing an idea I wrote about a while back having to do with Post-itŪ Notes. I've done some experimenting and have found amazing results advertising a special to my customers via a custom printed 3" x 3" post-it note. I recently sent out our new catalog for Great American Collectibles. Here's the post-it note (left)…

I just learned a good lesson in blog ethics. If you want to go on a diatribe about something, you better check to make sure what you're about to explode onto is justified. I just deleted a post of mine that linked to what I thought was material given to kids in MA about gay sex... etc. I'm not going…

It seems someone who takes treasonous acts, no matter how long ago they occurred, very serious. A theatre owner in Kentucky has refused to show the movie Monster-in-Law because it stars Jane Fonda. In case you didn't know, she has been unapologetic for giving aid and comfort to the enemy during the Vietnam War. Here's Hanoi Jane laughing it up…

Newsweek screwed up big time. Here's what I just wrote to Newsweek in cancelling my subscription. I recommend all subscribers do the same thing. We need for US publications to error on the side of AMERICA if they truly believe in the prevailing good of our intentions and actions across the world. If they don't, that's fine... but they shouldn't…

In my previous post, I wrote that the poor in this country aren't getting poorer because of anyone but themselves, for the most part. I would like to qualify that statement by saying that those who are handicapped or cannot fend for themselves are by definition, not the people I am talking about. If the government should help anyone in…

If I had to pick one mantra from the left that is the most annoying of them all, it's the "rich getting richer, poor getting poorer" schtick. Of course, it's true. We WANT our society to get richer and richer. But if someone who's poor is getting poorer, it's their own damn fault.But we need to define our terms here.…

In 1936, after 5 years of hardly any business to speak of, a drug store owner in Wall, SD got an idea. (I guess it was his wife’s idea.) He went out to I-90, the major highway that went by Wall, and put up a billboard offering free ice water at their drug store in town. The rest is history.…

I did a little fun prognosticating on who the new Pope would be a few days before enclave started. I was predicting Bishop Tettamanz' because of his "Olive" connection. If you haven't already read about it.. read this page on the prophecy of Malachy and what he says about this new Pope (which he said hundreds of years ago.) He…
