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…

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

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…

Stealth Mode: Financials (Actual Numbers) Are Going Dark… And Why…

December 2, 2013

I thought about this the other day… I recently added a post that had some financial information that had details about my actual financial numbers. It’s not normally a big deal, but then I started thinking about the fallout it would cause if certain peers of mine started reading this (out of the blue). Unfortunately, as you start to accumulate wealth (or lose wealth), you will inevitably be judged. It…
