In late January, I announced that I’d be climbing a mountain. Well, I may not be able to do that now. The full, $4,500 is due to Climbing for Kids on Tuesday to be able to qualify for the climb. I’ll be about $2,000 short after I give what’s left of my paycheck after paying […]

Profitability. It’s a big deal. Are you making more than you’re spending. In my case, rent, cell phones, groceries, utilities, public transit and other misc. must have expenses is adding up to be exactly what Laura and I make every month.

Electronic Artist, Brian Transeau is and will be my favorite artist of all time. His music is artwork for the mind and soul and his spirit is poured into every piece. The music that is sculpted on his Macintosh has evolved over the years from hard hitting trance music to masterpieces produced in 5.1 surround […]

Starting February 16th (Tomorrow), I’ll begin placing ads on my Twitter page for 2 weeks. If all goes well, that will be extended to 1 month. I’m excited to accept advertising on my page for a couple of reasons. The first is that it’s proof that my social media worth is finally allowing me to […]
