One of the most amazing men in American history would have been 94 today. Ronald Reagan was the single most influential and inspiring person to me in my 41 years on this plant. Bar none. I've missed him dearly. If it's possible to love someone you've never met, it would describe my feelings for him.

In case you haven't heard, ebay has upped their commissions to their affiliates. You earn commissions for signing people up as ebay members and generating bids on items up for auction. The low figure used to be $15 per sign up. Now it's $20. The per bid commission has gone up as well.Some ebay affiliates make over $1 million a…

I knew this would start to happen eventually. But I honestly thought it would take much longer than this. Wow.I've said this before, but when major events occur like freeing a people to choose their own destiny, you really need to take a long hard look at the historical aspect of what you're doing. What side of history are you…

I'll bet there aint a wacko liberal alive right now that aint looking for a window to leap out of after reading this from the new Baghdad mayor... (I define "wacko" liberals as those that automatically hate the letter "B" because it's the first letter in the word, "Bush."):"We will build a statue for Bush," said Ali Fadel, the former…

I've officially launched blogTshirts.com. It's one of the 274 businesses I'm constantly in the middle of developing. This one has finally bubbled to the surface. I've got in place the proper equipment to facilitate its success and now all we need are bloggers to jump on board.SIDE NOTE: I just wish I would have had all this t-shirt making equipment…

Pay: The knowledge gained in participating. :-) Reason to do it: Because you are a remarkable entrepreneur and you're as curious as hell.Seriously. I'm looking to recruit a few of my readers to conduct an experiment. The actual work will take 16 hours to complete. It's not rocket science, but I need someone who considers themselves a remarkable entrepreneur.The chosen…

When I sold beds for a living (nice pay but awful hours), we were trained in the skill of dropping the price to close the sale. They always stressed to NEVER drop the price without a reason. If you just drop it, for no apparent reason other than to get the sale, the customer catches on and you lose their…

I just read an article about this filmmaker that convinced the city officials in charge of the Golden Gate bridge to set up a camera on public ground to film the bridge 24 hours a day to ostensibly chronicle the "day in the life of the bridge."Turns out he is doing a film about suicide and he wanted to catch…

If you're here regarding my earthquake prediction, click here for more info.On to my normal subject matter... business ideas!As everyone knows, printer companies get their revenue off the back end and not so much the front end. Meaning they charge an arm and a freaking leg for ink cartridges but you can get a decent printer now a days for…

It appears my prognosticating post has begun to be noticed. Traffic yesterday was about 500 visitors. Today it was over 5100 visitors. The vast majority of it was from an Italian website that is comparing me to Nostrodamus. Yikes! So, benvenuti to all my Italiano visitors. (Interesting note: I was stationed in Italy when I was in the Air Force.…

If you have been a regular reader of my blog, I need you to do me a favor. If you remember reading my post back in September about my earthquake prediction, and the followup post a few days later, please post it in the comments. It seems my prediction is getting a bit of attention in the blogosphere and there…

I hate those ads that quote you can make $X amount per day... etc. However, I fully believe the title of this post to be doable by the average person.First, I've already written a related idea (they both have to do with cat poop) so if you want to read that one first, here it is.More likely than not, you…

 NEWS FLASH! Walter Cronkite has been photographed in what authorities are calling a "slave labor basement" located 25 feet under a WalMart in Wilsonville OR. Authorities are calling it Abu Wal Ghraib.A shaken and disheveled Cronkite was led out of the basement by local authorities after being dressed in a somewhat tight fitting pair of pants and an I'm With…

You've probably seen the video blooper shows and sometimes they show a montage of cars sliding into one another during ice storms.If you have a particularly bad intersection in your area that gets a little dicey during snow or ice storms, next time you have one, take your video camera to the corner and some warm clothing and essentially camp…

I came across a nifty sales tool again just recently. I've seen it before but for one reason or another, I've always had to pass on it as not being "there" yet.Well, I believe it's about as "there" as it's going to get now. It's called oddcast. Blogger doesn't allow you to use javascript in your posts, so I can't…

If you've followed my blog for over a few months, you might remember that I made an earthquake prediction back on September 2nd, 2004. In that prediction, I said this:I just hope the intensity of the event doesn't directly correlate with the intensity of the physical manifestation I've been experiencing. If it does, it will be absolutely devastating. Let's hope…

As WiMax evolves and the chips get smaller and more efficient, someone's going to build a flying apparatus that will be WiMax enabled with a really small video camera mounted on it. Something like this only on a much smaller scale.What good is that? Imagine this...Having a very small flying device, equipped with a small survellience type of camera and…

How many cars do you see now with the 2004 election bumper stickers on their backside? I see LOTS of them. They're everywhere. I was smart enough to put my Bush/Cheney sticker on my back window. Putting them on the window allows for a much easier removal.But what about those poor saps that put them on their bumpers? How many…

Oohh... I just said, "stiff" and "naughty" in one sentence. Gotta love that.Anyway, if you view life out of the right eye more than the left, you simply must go over to Cox & Forkum. They have the best editorial cartoons on planet earth. Here's their latest:I absolutely love this. I laughed and laughed and laughed when I saw this…

More on my CrispAds testing. It seems to me that this is a good way to swap traffic with other bloggers without spending hardly any cash. Let me explain. One of my ads currently running (as an advertiser) is for this blog (dansherman.com). This means other bloggers are showing my ad through their CrispAd insertion. When their visitor clicks on…

My post a few days ago about the demise of the daily newspaper and how a saavy journalist-type person can take advantage of that demise, got me thinking and researching.So, henceforth, as if I didn't have enough things to do, I will be blogging the demise of the newspaper industry. I'm calling the blog, Bye Bye Ink. The introductory entry…

I've been using CrispAds now as a publisher (see ad in this post) as well as an advertiser. I've made a whopping .46 cents so far as a publisher (thanks to the two people who have clicked on my crispads.)The amount I've made really means nothing because it's really only relative to how many people have viewed my ads. That…

This post is meant for my fellow bloggers out there. Please check out a new service I will be launching shortly at blogTshirts.com. It's not fully functional as of yet, but I'd like to get a core group of bloggers signed up and get their own blog's t-shirt up on the site before I go forward with the hard launch.Also,…
