None Of Us Is Great At Everything

Living in central New York, we end up having a lot of windstorms and snowstorms; sometimes they come at the same time; other times one type of storm will morph into a different type of storm.

not work I can do

I remember once we had a major windstorm that turned into, for us, a minor snowstorm. At one point I was having a conversation on the phone with my ex during the blackout the storm caused that went like this:

5 Rules Of The Law Of Attraction

In the movie The Secret, there was a lot of talk about the overall premise, which is the law of attraction. I’ve written more specifically about it on my business blog. Coming across it recently is what leads me into talking about it today.

Over the years, I’ve worked on applying the concept to many parts of my life. I’ve had both successes and some bad “experiments” occur because of it. I blame both on the law of attraction, but nothing overly metaphysical, which both the book and the movie alluded to a lot.

Dad, Mom And Computers

On Friday, September 3rd, 2021, my mother passed away at 6:30PM. I was sitting next to her when it happened; just the two of us. Since then I’ve done a video and a different blog post about her. It’s been mentally tough over the last week or so, which included the service by the grave site on the following Thursday.

Mom was often prescient about what might be coming down the line. So was my dad, who left this world 19 years ago on Father’s Day, 2002, at 4:45PM. I’ve thought about him often over the past few weeks, thinking that soon he and Mom would be together again in their way. That’s what brings me to telling this story about a time when both of them were instrumental in getting me to work with something that’s become a major part of my life, both business and personal.

Better Blogging, Part Deux

I hope you checked out the first part of this mega-pillar post. If not, you can see the first half of Better Blogging here. It was a monster, but this one is even larger as I drive my points home.


It’s time to talk about actually writing blog posts. Every blog post is going to need a title, but there’s nothing saying you have to have a title first. Some blogging experts will tell you that you should create a title for maximum SEO benefits. Whereas I’m sure that can help, sometimes creating a title that will entice readers to come by works just as well.

Make Blogging And Social Media Be What You Want It To Be

You might not know this about me, but I used to lift weights. I wasn’t very good at it, and never got my arms the way I was shooting for, although I did it religiously for almost 2 years. I did develop my shoulders and upper back muscles though and my pecs looked pretty good; that’s the best I could do, no matter how hard I worked at it.

I’ve always had the strongest legs. Even before I was weight lifting regularly, I got on a universal leg press machine and was able to push it up to 500 lb when I was 15 years old. Later on, when I was doing weight lifting for real, I regularly pushed 500 lb, and every once in awhile would take a gamble and push up to 750 lb. Yes, my legs were strong.
