As we say goodbye to 2017, I have to say that for me personally, 2017 was a great year! Of course it had its ups and downs but overall it was a very fulfilling year, both in my personal life as well as my business life. This mini-post is a reflection of the year,...read more
Here is my pony which has the original 289 V8 and C4 automatic transmission. She is a survivor that is still in great shape after 47+ years! This car has never been restored but has been meticulously detailed and cared for over the years. [Click each image for full...read more
I recently discovered this handy chart entitled “The Bountiful Year: A Guide To Seasonal Fruits & Vegetables,” published by Visual News. Whether you simply love fruits and vegetables, are dieting or simply want to eat healthier, I hope you’ll find the chart helpful and resourceful.read more
When I was growing up as a kid, we actually went outside and did stuff. You know, things like ride bikes, play baseball, explore the desert around us. I did not spend all my time in front of the idiot box or exhaust endless hours playing video games. There was no Facebook, Twitter of even a computer in our house.
That being said, we did have an Atari console. And while most time aside from school, sleep, homework, eating, etc., was spent “doing stuff,” some of that time included playing Atari games. That is why the infographic below brought back some memories for me. It is a timeline of Atari history, both their ups and downs, all in celebration of their 40th birthday.read more
Postscript: Sold this guitar. Leaving this post up as an archive. 😉 Hate to do it but I'm parting with my very first Taylor Acoustic Guitar - a 2002 310ce series. I bought her new from Guitar Center and she has been played mostly for pleasure and in church settings....read more
Irma and I experienced something we have been wanting to do for some time - drive along the Pacific Coast Highway in California. Known as the "1" or "PCH" for short, this highway runs mostly along California's coastal line and offers breathtaking views of the Pacific...read more
For the most part, I love living in Anthem, Arizona, a master-planned community built mostly by Del Webb (Pulte), located just south of New River. However, I hate my anal HOA (Home Owners Association). In fact they have to be one of the most anal, annoying and idiotic...read more
I was transferring some old business files to new boxes yesterday when I can across a purchase receipt that was somewhat amusing while being somewhat stomach turning at the same time. It was the receipt for my first laptop, purchased in 1997 from a local company.
At a total price of $3,639.39, that’s a whopping price to pay compared to today’s pricing. Wait till you hear what almost four grand bought you back then.read more
This post is more of an experiment than anything else. I was conducting keyword research for a client in relation to my search marketing business and I was very intrigued when the Google AdWords Keyword Tool showed a decent amount of searches for “what is social media” and yet scored it as low competition. So, I thought I’d quickly define social media here and see if I can get this post to rank. If it does so, especially being that this is my personal blog, then the Google Keyword Tool’s competition scoring will seem accurate to me.read more
In light of Sony retiring the Walkman Cassette player today, I thought it would be neat to put together a Infographic representing some of the history of audio recording formats. In my generation, vinyl records and cassette tapes were the norm although I remember my Father’s love of his reel-to-reel. However there is much more history beyond that… and how far we come!read more
