Claude Hopkins – Scientific Advertising – My Notes And Takeaways

March 22, 2017

I found out about this book a few days ago and was able to track down the audio version of it at: The good news about Youtube is that you can speed up the playback speed to get through videos even quicker than normal. ūüėČ Anyway, I was putting notes together as I went through it and have put them down below: Chapter 2 “Would it help a salesman sell…

Yet Again, It Has Been A While…

May 9, 2016

Well, yet again, it has been quite a while since I’ve been on here to post something. Latest updates: My wife and I have been married for more than 6-months. It looks like we’ll finally be getting our wedding album done. We’re still figuring things out on how everything works with married life (apparently the adjustment period lasts for the duration of the marriage – hehe…). Believe it or not,…

Wow (Again)! I’m Getting Married In A Few Days

October 7, 2015

So here is that story… I never thought I would ever be blessed enough to get married (I’m sure many don’t consider it a blessing, but I do – at least for now – Hahahaha!). Perhaps it’s one of those internal ideas that one thinks every once in a while… I’ve never considered myself worthy of another being able to spend the rest of their life with me. Perhaps that’s…

Wow! It Has Been A While…

Wow! It has been a while since I’ve written something on here… There was a small write up on what prompted me to actually post something on here. It was basically about Women’s rights and the baby’s rights for abortion and all of that stuff. The write-up / rant is from someone by the name of “Samantha May” (written on:¬†September 11, 2015 at 2:40 p.m.) and is pulled from: http://julieroys.com/gianna-jessen-asks-congress-if-abortion-is-about-womens-rights-then-what-were-mine/…

Yet Another Interesting Quote… WSJ

Yet another quote pulled from the Wall Street Journal from August 27, 2014, titled “Warren Buffett’s Tax Whopper“… It’s pretty much the last line of the article: ================ (Reference to the word “Dumb“): That word also applies to America’s corporate tax code, the reigning world champion in punishing investment and discouraging job creation. ================ Hahahaha!!! I thought that was funny. ūüėČ

Another Interesting Note: “Sticking It To The Rich”

February 3, 2015

This comes from the Wall Street Journal on September 19, 2014 in the article titled “Sticking It To The Rich“. Basically, Tom Perkins says quite a few things in there, but the very end of the article gets the message across: =============== According to a 2010 report from the nonpartisan Tax Foundation, the top 1% earns 19% of the gross national income and pays 38% of all federal taxes. The…

An Interesting Quote From Pope Francis (Plus A Few Tangents – All Over The Place)

Today I was reading an article¬†from the¬†Wall Street Journal¬†in the September 26th, 2014 issue¬†(yeah, I’m a bit behind) titled “The Pope and the Divorce Question“. In there, was a quote that I thought made quite a bit of sense with today’s society. Unfortunately, it’s a bit sad, but I think it’s true. It’s just below: The pope has suggested that as many as half of all Catholic marriages are actually…

Well… I Guess It’s Finally Catching Up With Me…

Well, all, it seems it’s finally catching up with me. I’m currently in a flare-up again (Ulcerative Colitis). Each one of these seems to get worse and worse. This one is really bad (last one was in conjunction with a bowel infection – I thought I was going to die [no joke]). No more medications are working for me. My latest in Simponi, but it has been months and it…
