Experiment in Perspective

I have a short experiment for you that I think may change your perspective a bit – for the good, of course. Full credit for this inspiration goes to a blog I just read from Darius Foroux, who if you don’t follow you definitely should – great stuff. (Click HERE for that short blog) So here’s the scoop – ...

I Want Nothing

OK – so this is going to sound pretty crazy, as we are in the heart of the holiday shopping season now, but for Christmas, here’s what I want: NOTHING   I know that those of you that survived Bankruptcy Wednesday (my last blog) are very happy to hear this announcement. And no, this is not the token “you ...

The "PC" side of it is to make sure people don't misinterpret their words as speaking for the ...

Dollar = Vote

No folks, this is not a rant about the one percent, corrupt politicians, bribery, or any of that crazy stuff. I might not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but I am also not dumb enough to dip my toes in that water. Anyway, here is the point that I would like you to noodle a bit: WITH EVERY DOLLAR YOU SPEND, YOU ARE ...
