This post is specifically for residents in Arizona but who knows if this scam is not going on elsewhere throughout the country.

Sold: Marshall AVT 275 2×12 Combo Guitar Amplifier

I recently purchased a Vox Custom Classic AC15CC1 Guitar Amp so the Marshall Guitar Amp I’ve been using for the last several years has to go. Because I’m running POD XT Live effects, I no longer need the four channels as well as all the effects that the Marshall amplifier offers. So she’s up for sale.

If you are looking for a 150 watt Marshall Combo amp, this is your chance to get one at about two-thirds of what you’d pay for it brand new.

San Francisco / Bay Area in Two Days

Irma and myself have made it an annual event to visit San Francisco and the Bay Area annually in conjunction with Search Marketing Expo and Search Engine Strategies conferences that are held in the San Jose area.

Typically we take 3-4 days after the conference and head up the 101 to San Francisco as well as wine Napa and/or Sonoma Counties. Most recently, we decided to hit do the “vacation” portion of our trip first and limited it to just two days.

5 Coasters Added To My List This Year

5 Coasters Added To My List This Year

I’m done traveling for the year and with my travels, I was fortunate to add another 5 roller coasters to my list. This brings me to a grand total of 133 individual roller coasters I have rode in my life. 5 may not seem like a lot but seeing that I didn’t actually travel just to ride coasters but rode these new coasters during normal business travel, I’m satisfied with the number.

HCG Diet – Calorie Counter

Here is a breakdown of the approximate calories of each food allowed during the HCG diet. As a refresher, HCG, short for Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin is a hormone found in pregnant women that when taken allows a person to survive on a low calorie diet (500 calories a day) and in which case they are able to lose on average about a pound or two a day, all while maintaining a healthy physique and not experiencing the usual hunger pains that accompany many diets.

HCG Diet – Phase Two

I recently lost 40 pounds in 40 days using Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (HCG) and a very low calorie diet. While that is phenomenal weight loss, I still need to lose about 20 pounds to get to my goal weight of 190 pounds.
