• Correcting Mistruths

    If you hear a rumor that I had my house “handed to me”, Let me take you through the process I went through to become a homeowner. It all started many years ago when the house I was renting burned down on Christmas Eve while I was at work. I was evicted because of it. I moved back home for a week or so, knew that would not work with the young adult life that I had gotten used to. There was also a short time staying in a shack in the woods, but a bullet through the bathtub was my cue to move out of there, so without telling…

  • 7 Reasons Why Ignoring Time will Drastically Improve Your Life

    “Time is the fire in which we burn” -Soran Are you constantly stressing about being somewhere at a particular time? Do you feel pressure when running late, not being able to leave the house quickly enough to the point of yelling at the kids or spouse to hurry up? This stress is totally unnecessary and easily avoidable by freeing yourself, ditching the clock, and becoming a ChronoNot.  ( a combination of chrono– ˈkränō/ relating to time. and not nät/ used with an auxiliary verb or “be” to form the negative) 1) Get More Sleep and Feel Better Do you have 3 pre alarms set before you actually have to get up,…

  • The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life

    Is supposed to be 42, but for me it’s 39. At the age of 39 I look around everywhere and see earlier versions of myself, and upon realizing that, I now see older versions of myself. Everywhere. We are taught or assume or both from an early age that we are like the metaphorical snowflake, each one of us is unique. For people who haven’t gotten to this age of enlightenment yet, enjoy your bliss. Think that the world is full of possibilities and opportunity. When you realize that you are just another cog in the matrix be it biochemical if not digital, the wonderment is gone. Just another non-aware…

  • Guns kill people

    Not to be political or preachy, but guns are bad. I think that at heart everyone knows this. Nothing good ever came from guns. People don’t use them to plant flower gardens. They are only used to hurt people or animals. In Gene Roddenberry’s future humans have for the most part moved past this senseless violence. Hopefully we as a nation and people can finally say enough is enough and it’s time for our leaders to ignore the lobbyists and say to us the people. Ok it’s time to take your toys away because you can’t play nice with others. Peace and long life. An official fund for victims’ families,…

  • 11/22/63

    (Spoiler free, I think…) Well I finally finished reading 11/22/63: A Novel by Stephen King, and I have to say… Wow! It is incredible. I started reading the eBook edition for the first five chapters or so, but I found that when I was not able to read it due to my busy life I constantly wanted to. The first thing I thought  about when I woke up and last thing I thought about before falling asleep kinda thing, you know? So I then picked up the Audio Book edition (Unabridged and over 30 hours long) to listen in my car also, but that still wasn’t enough, so I put it on my iPhone and listened to it…

  • Making the right De-cision

    From http://www.nocirc.org/ So as some of you may know My beautiful wife Heather and I are on the nest. After one miscarriage a little over a year ago we are cautiously optimistic about this pregnancy. Speaking for myself, I am bothered by the fact that almost everyone in our lives are trying to impose their beliefs on our future child ranging from one end of the spectrum like cloth diapers to the other like Circumcision.  People are telling us we are wrong because “That’s not how everyone else does it” or “Just in case” and so on, and so on. People instead should be asking things like “Did you do…

  • My Opinion on the American Auto Industry

    The problem with the American Auto Industry is the unions. They Greed-ed themselves out of jobs. I, like most working class people I get paid for working and that’s it. If I don’t work, I don’t get paid.  The auto workers want to get paid for working which is OK, but being paid for; not working, being sick, vacation, insurance, getting paid for not working after they retire, and also getting paid a ridiculous hourly wage. All this money drives up the price of a new American car to an almost unattainable price for all but the wealthiest people. Not a good business model. The people that run the car…
