Resolution Still Going Strong

UNITED STATES—For many Americans we are in day 16 of the New Year as I write this column and many of us have committed to resolutions or things for the New Year that we would like to change. Most of us may have already broken that resolution, but I am proud to note that mine is still going strong....

Endless Thoughts

UNITED STATES—I recently had an interesting conversation with someone about rather it is fully possible to control your thoughts. I’m a firm believer of positive thoughts, but you’re not going to sit here and tell me that someone can be positive 24/7; I just don’t believe it and I know it’s not possible. It’s like comparing yourself to Ned...

Technology Stops Sleep

UNITED STATES—I said the one thing I planned to do more of in 2019 was to get more sleep. We’re only seven days into the New Year, and I’m failing miserably at that goal. Why? Technology has become a bit of a thorn in my side. No, I’m not referencing to watching TV, it’s my cellphone and iPad Mini...

Bad Banking Practices

UNITED STATES—The bank, it used to be a place I visited at least once a week, but as of late that has vastly changed. Why? Banks I feel just do not care as much about their customers. They are doing any and everything in their power to hit customers with unsuspecting fees. Like I had a bank charge a...

Why Is Gaming So Addictive?

UNITED STATES—Back when I was a kid I was considered the gamer of gamers. I had this unique ability to strategize in my head a way to complete a videogame without having a map or guide. I just had this unique intuition to know what had to be done in order to succeed.  My recent acquisition of the SNES...

The Government Shut Down Will It End?

UNITED STATES—Well it has been close to two weeks since the federal government has gone into a partial shutdown. I note partial because the government has not completely shut down, but there are plenty of Americans who are impacted by the closure. It looks like state and national parks are feeling the brunt of the closure first, but my...

Things Learned In 2018

UNITED STATES—In a few days, 2018 will be no more and we will be ushering in 2019. Wow, it is really hard to believe that in less than a year we will usher in 2020. It’s like yesterday that I remember us ushering the year 2000, which had so many people on edge with a possible technology fail. Thankfully,...

Academics Matter For Kids

UNITED STATES—I tell this to people all the time and I stress this all the time: academics are vital for kids. If you have a child that is struggling, you cannot wait until the last minute to start to make things happen. You might be asking why I’m bringing this up. Well, I got news over the weekend that...

Christmas Crowds Drive Me Crazy

UNITED STATES—We are just a few days away from Christmas America, and with that news, it means the crowds are starting to pick-up in intensity at the grocery stores and just about any retailer that you visit. I used to be someone who could deal with the crowds and not lose his patience, but that is not the case...

The Money Battle

UNITED STATES—Money, it is the one commodity some people have loads of and others wish they could earn more of it. With Christmas fast approaching, it really got me thinking about finances, where I’m spending my money and what I’m spending it on. However, this isn’t really a question about my finances it’s about others. Nothing bugs me more...
