Terrorists love to do things on dates that are memorable from a number standpoint. You can't get much more memorable than 7/7/07. Will we have an attack today? It's a little after midnight now... we'll see, I guess. Hope not!Meanwhile... some updates on all the projects I'm working on:MegaSticky.com - This is my over sized sticky note business, that sells…

Got a message from Dane Carlson, regarding Chuck Huckaby's suggestion to send a business book to a prisoner. What the heck... why not? I have about a million of them and if it can motivate a person to make something of their lives, it's postage money well spent.Find a business kind of book and send it along to:L.HaddockPre Release ProgramSouth…

I've been receiving emails from readers of my blog asking when I'm going to post again. This blog is near and dear to my heart, but it's so easy to let it slip because of how busy one can get. I like to think that if an entrepreneur has time to post to their blog, they aren't working hard enough…

I just read on Drudge that the opening receipts for King Kong were the 21st best Wednesday opening in history. It didn't even do as well as the Pokeman movie when it was released on a Wednesday. I had to laugh. Only because I was reading all these glowing reviews and how it might become the biggest blockbuster in history...etc.…

There has been much press recently regarding the decline of readership for newspapers. I've been tracking this for a while now. Even had a blog dedicated to it (until the reality of lack of time hit me in the face!) I just got a call from our local rag called the Oregonian. We recently subscribed to the sunday paper for…

We recently wanted to get rid of a Little Tikes desk complete with chair that my daughter used all of about 10 times. So, I went to Craigslist for Portland and placed the ad, complete with a couple of pictures. The post took me about 10 minutes including the taking and uploading of the pictures and I was done. That…

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know my mantra is "creating value in exchange for money" is what we entrepreneurs do for a living. I've just read a great example of what entrepreneurs do for society and how they do it. We can trace every single standard of living increase in our society to the actions…

Are you one of my young readers? If so, here is a short and sure fire way to stay out of poverty in the USA. While guest hosting Rush Limbaugh's radio program this morning, Walter Williams said something similiar. But this is my version: 1) Graduate High School 2) Don't have children until you're 30+ years old. When you do…

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 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…

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.…
