I have spent a lot of time trying to think of innovative ways of marketing myself. Most business people who use social media have become familiar with the term "personal branding". Personal branding makes a lot of sense since most of us are trying to stand out from the crowd, and just riding the ...
An incident occurred on New Years night in Trenton. A man alleges that he was beaten by the police, and the photograph accompanying the article would suggest that there are merits to his allegations. The fact that he was in breach of his probation and the the man's arm length criminal record will...
Ah, New Years, that arbitrary line in the sand is upon us. It's the time when one year flows into the next. Some of you will be out celebrating, others will be at home celebrating, some will be asleep, some will be trying to get to sleep, some will be playing World of Warcraft, while many others ...
I always used to really enjoy the week in between Christmas and New Years. When I was a student it used to be a very peaceful holiday week, and even when I joined the workforce I could always find excuses not to get things done and no one really minded all that much. 2011 has been completely diff...
Matthew 1:22-25So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.” Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, di...

For those of you who didn't read it and don't feel like following the link provided (and I don't blame you in the least), it was really just a few random facts about this iconic luncheon meat. I became interested in Spam because I had (for reaso...
Maybe Santa Claus isn't dead after all. There's a phenomenon that's occuring all around the good old U.S. of A. this Christmas season that's bound to warm up the cockles of even the most jaded of real estate agents' hearts. Apparently anonymous people are going into Kmarts all over the country an...
I have been reading a lot of material lately from people who are preparing their 2012 business plans. I realize that it's important to have a plan and define my goals. If you don't have a roadmap, how will i know where I'm going blah blah blah etc. etc. It has occured to me that 2012 is going to ...
Am I the only person who has become tired of the phrase thinking outside the box? Every time I hear someone say this phrase I want to let out a scream. It's becoming too bloody crowded outside of that box. Apparently all of us have fled the box and we are roaming around outside of the box. It's p...
