Who’s Your Boss?

work

I have a couple of people in my life and friends on FaceBook who are so unhappy with their job situation. Either they don’t make enough money or their boss is useless or the owner is a money grubbing control freak and any variety of other issues that make their work life miserable.

So. Here’s

Rooms To Go Fail

This is a recent letter I sent to Rooms To Go. I think it is self-explanatory.

My most recent Rooms To Go experience has almost convinced me there isn’t a living soul at your establishment who actually CARES about satisfying the customer (me) but just on the off-chance that I am wrong and somewhere in

Zynga Support Chat Fail

The following chat is a transcript of a support chat this evening. Anyone who plays Cafe World will understand the frustration of dealing with their support staff but this brings it to a whole new level. Apparently now we have to PROVE there was a problem. How?!?

Anyone know what we can do now…

Obama’s Familiarity Breeds Contempt.

dice

Most political predictions are made by biased pollsters, pundits, or prognosticators who are either rooting for Republicans or Democrats. I am neither. I am a former Libertarian Vice Presidential nominee, and a well-known Vegas oddsmaker with one of the most accurate records of predicting political races. But as an oddsmaker with a pretty remarkable track

I’m Biting The Bullet

The President has ordered the cabinet to cut $100,000,000.00 ($100 million) from the $3,500,000,000,000.00 ($3.5 trillion) federal budget.

I’m so impressed by this sacrifice I have decided to do the same with my personal budget. I spend about $2,000 a month on groceries, household expenses, medicine, utilities, etc., but it’s time to get out the

You Could Have Heard A Pin Drop

proud

By today’s standard in Washington each of these would have probably been yet another opportunity to apologize for America. But back then… you could have heard a pin drop.

A friend sent me this via email. I’m passing it along here…

JFK’S Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60’s when

My Granny Was A Prepper When Prepping Wasn’t Cool

I realized today my grandmother was prepping way before prepping was cool. In fact, she was born a century before “prepper” was even a word. Lord rest her soul. If there’s a kitchen in heaven there’s no doubt she is up there right now either cooking, planning to cook, cleaning up after cooking or growing

Beyond Here There Be Dragons

dignity

Quality of life is a sliding scale that not only differs from person to person… it also changes in the same person, over time, in altering situations. I’m convinced now it is impossible to decide right this minute … I’ll go this far … then no further. Because when you get right there at the
