Maybe 2015 is the year…

January 15, 2015

I posted last January that 2014 might be the year for the car, maybe it will be 2015! Things are looking up but who knows, the goal in life is to continue to make progress, even if very slow. I have parts I didn’t, I have leads I didn’t, I have a mind I didn’t, maybe this will be the year to get ahead!

All of that said I have taken on a new hobby of taking flying lessons, a lifelong dream and things happened to work out in such a way I could do that so I’m pretty excited, hopefully I can make progress in all areas in life but the flying adventure really has me excited.

More to come!

Space Shuttle

July 20, 2011

Since we aren’t going to be rocketing around space in the old space shuttle anymore, wonder if I could get one to decorate the back yard with?  Seems logical, doubt they will be used for much just sitting down here on the dirt.  I think it would tons of fun to play around in one after work and such.

Just a thought.

Over a year!

September 1, 2010

 

I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I’ve written anything (significant in my eyes) on this blog.  The time sure flies!  I suppose I should start thinking of a topic…

Procrastination – perhaps that is the best topic.  It always amazes me on how a task can be somewhat short but the mind can create such a block when the task looses a bit of the appeal that once drew a person to that task.  It can be anything; work related, home repair, writing a blog, or even doing something nice for someone else.

Procrastination can keep people from getting the most out of live, even though such a task might seem so far away, there is a sever lack of desire or even dread, those tasks can have a big impact on life.  Careers can be made or broken, relationships can suffer, or maybe even a vehicle damaged avoiding from that dreaded fifteen minute oil change!  (I have to throw a car example in)

I don’t know that I have a real great solution but it is worth while to consider these things.  Now go out and do something that was being put off!

A year!

June 23, 2010

Wow it has nearly been a year! I need to start writing again…

The question is, has Facebook lessened the need for personal blogs? The personal blog of course is more public and typically longer than a Facebook post, yet somehow they have some overlap. Any thoughts?

Useful websites

August 23, 2008

I ran across a list of great ‘undiscovered’ websites from PC Magazine and thought I would post some links to what I found to be the ‘most useful’.  Here is a link to the original article if you wish to have it.

PC Magazine – The Top 100 Undiscovered Web Sites

OK there you have the complete list, here are the best in my opinion on the list, or at least the most useful:

Billshrink – Assists in finding a cell phone plan that is more cost effective

How to Clean Stuff . NET – Fairly self explanatory, helps with how to clean items

Stockhouse – Loads of information about stocks and the market

RerpairPal – Helps identify what certain automotive repair costs should be

Something Store – Want a surprise?  Buy here and they will send you a random something

Catalog Choice – Get only the catalogs you want in the mail, get rid of junk mail!

Gazelle – Get cash for old electronics and gadgets

Hope you enjoy, comment if any were useful!

Bonus – Stop Junk Mail Petition
