I was going to the store today and came to a four way stop that ALWAYS has someone at the corner holding a sign, begging for money. But for some reason, this time, no one was there. So that got me to thinking. I realized that I had NEVER seen a migrant or immigrant worker on the corner begging for…

I don't know what I'd do without my toll free phone service. I have 6 toll free phone numbers all accessible via an online webpage. The service I use allows me to create marketing campaigns and track them geographically. I can change the ring-to numbers in real time and I can block calls from certain parts of the country. I…

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-it® 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…

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…

I just spent a good two hours posting one of my better and more detailed posts in recent memory and while switching between "Preview" and back to see what the HTML rendered version looked like (I was finished!) Blogger just up and deleted about 80% of my entire post. Just like that. Bam. Gone!There's gotta be a better way, Blogger.…

Link to article.Scientists Create Remote-Controlled DemocratsYale University researchers say their study that used lasers to create remote-controlled wacko Democrats could lead to a better understanding of overeating and violence in humans.Using the lasers to stimulate specific brain cells, researchers say they were able to make the Democrats jump, walk, flap their arms and even drive SUVs.Even headless Democrats could still…

I literally had to read this asinine statement three or four times:The 9th Circuit Court has now ruled that threatening to assassinate the President of the United States is protected speech under the First Amendment.I'm just beside myself with anger, contempt and downright disgust. How about this for free speech, 9th Court asses? Perhaps if someone were to say in…

I've officially launched another blog. It's called "Bye Bye Ink!" and it's designed to blog the demise of the ink based newspaper, as we know it. It's inevitable. The daily newspapers will be going bye, bye, sooner than you think. I'm going to be right there, chronicling it every step of the way.

I was minding my own business, driving home this afternoon from the post office and I noticed a huge pick-up truck next to me. It was obvious he was an artist from the text on the side of his truck and the big website URL emblazoned on the tailgate. But what was really remarkable and what actually caught my eye…

If you aren't using a personal video recorder (PVR), you're either too poor to buy one (which is fine, just keep reading my blog and perhaps we can get your income up) or you are purposely living in the stone age, for whatever reason.As you may or may not know, TiVo has become synonymous with the PVR industry. You're not…

Well... maybe. :-)I've been taking a look at this Iraqi dinar investment talk that's being discussed here and there. Most people (investment advisers) are down on the prospects that it'll actually pay off.Essentially, because the Iraqi economy is most likely at it's lowest point going into the future, it's worth maybe speculating a little on its currency. They just issued…

If you haven't heard of podcasting yet, you're going to very shortly. It's at the same stage in popularity blogs were about 2 years ago.It's essentially a mini-broadcast, but not live. Anyone with something to say can make a recording of themselves saying it and post it on their blog or site and direct an RSS feed to it and…

I love what Salesprocessdiva had to say about specializing or as she says it, "being first in your category."Be the first in your category. If you can't be first, create a new subcategory in which you can be first. For example, who was the first person to fly across the Atlantic Ocean? Lindbergh, of course. Who was the second? No…

I just got this via email. One of those things that sweep around the globe. But I thought it was so funny, I'm going to post it here for posterity.It's a take off from the "Who's on First" bit by Abbott and Costello. If you haven't heard that bit from them, you are missing one of the classic comedic routines…
