Under Construction

day writing streak


Today I needed to write a private post. 
There are things that happen once in a while that needs a post of its own but it doesn't need to be public. 

Venting can help even if no one is listening. 
Today was one of those days. 

My disappointment and distrust of corporate America has...

Someone asked this question in a FB group that I follow.

What is a rare combination of two skills that when combined make someone unstoppable?

Shark Tank

I am watching back to back episodes of shark tank the last few days.

Many years ago around 2008, someone I knew asked me to invest in the stock market. Seeing how every single thing was plummeting tot he ground, I thought the idea was insane. NPR was talking about in 25 days, wall street could reach 0 if it keeps falling the way...
