I had an epiphany just a little while ago about what I have been doing wrong on all the little side business ventures I have gotten myself involved with over the years, with the exception of my farming adventures. I tend to get focused on production types of items, that require a good deal of input, usually my time, to complete the item. And in the end, I have just that, one item that is good to be sold. What most business ventures need to be truly successful though is a product, good, or service that you make once and sell it many times.
First, it should be mostly obvious to the casual reader that I am largely indifferent in regards to Obama as president, neither being supporter by and large nor a rabid anti-Obama-ist that that seeks at every turn for his failure. That being said though, I will have to say that I am severely disappointed in his current bent toward what seems to be a no other option excepting a military strike against in Syria.
A quick celebration is in order. Actually I suppose that there are several that are in order when I get down to it. The first, and perhaps biggest of them being that that sometime in the past week the post counter rolled over the 600 mark. That is a pretty good milestone. In addition, another mark of importance is having gotten back into the swing of things with the blog.
Post Calendar is a very useful plugin for the WordPress blogging platform. I have, in the past had a problem of having the ideas for blog posts and getting them in my drafts. However, they tended to scroll way back sometimes before I got to them and the usefulness of the information was stall or even no longer relevant. Post Calendar helps me manage that and other situations by allowing to put drafts on a schedule and giving me a monthly (or other time period) overview of when I have what planned for the blog.
Thirteen suspensions later and the 2nd big wave of performance enhancing drugs is supposed to be over, right? I would not bet on it. Even though baseball has the harshest penalties going of any American based team sporting group, it just is not enough. Why wouldn’t any player that is on the edge of being great take a fifty game suspension for the big contract the following year?
Yesterday we had a severe line of storms blow through the area. I was on the road between two of my office locations just before it came in with a lot a wind and a huge down burst rain. I happened to look over just as the wind really started to pick up and saw this evil looking set of clouds. So I pulled over (what everyone should do) and caught this picture with my cell phone. I love the way the dark menacing cloud bank has such a sharp contrast to the green grass in the fore ground.
