Day 1 Post-Employment

Comments Off on Day 1 Post-Employment

√ Day 1 complete. And I haven’t even started to stand by an offramp with a sign yet. Although… √ Me vs. Comcast: Me 1, Comcast 0. Got a bit frustrated, and realize it’s not the CSR’s fault, but needed to be firm. Not mean, just firm. Would blog more, but those details will have […]

Comments Off on A Word About Thomas Nelson Publishers

If you’ve been reading my blog in the past couple months, you’ve likely noticed references to Thomas Nelson Publishers. If not, perhaps your speed reading isn’t nearly as effective as it could be. Seriously. Perhaps cut down on the caffeine a bit, yeah? It takes a lot to impress me. Flashiness doesn’t do it. Marketing-speak […]

Review: Through the Storm by Lynne Spears

25 October 2008

When Thomas Nelson Publishers announced the opening up of reviews for this book by Lynne Spears, mother of Britney and Jamie Lynn, I threw in my hat. I didn’t actually expect to be one of the bloggers chosen, since it was near the deadline, and also because I hadn’t received an email reply. But a […]

Comments Off on The Election

Let’s talk politics for a bit, shall we? No, this won’t be a list as to why I am voting for a particular candidate, or even a litany of charges against the other. Nope, much more practical. Both of the main candidates have “economic plans” that would benefit me. I should be happy, right? Yes […]

Comments Off on You Did What?!, the Sequel

A week and a half ago, I told of the first action taken in this time of supposed economic doom and gloom: I cashed out my IRA. Crazy enough, right? [This actually had logic to it: it was losing value, so rather than let it lose that value to the market, I chose to have […]
