As a Multi-Millionaire…

My wife and I like to think strategically about our future.  Planning and foresight can save you a lot of grief and work in earnest. In the event that we should become multi-millionaires in the future, we want to make sure we know what we’re going to do with the…Continue Reading

No Polluter Commuter!

I’m not much of an activist, but I have taken action in support of our environment.  As of this past Monday, I began what I hope to be a consistent plan to reduce my gas consumption, reduce mileage on my car, and increase my fitness level.  I am currently riding…Continue Reading

Silver Stars: A Sensual Boutique

It was about a year ago that I wrote about Gainesville’s decision to close its doors to the occult. If you’re on the business end of the occult, maybe now is a good opportunity to try out your entrepreneurial venture again! Gainesville is now the happy home of one Silver…Continue Reading

Starbucks: Eco-Unfriendly

I have a sordid history with Starbucks and my mug. I can speak singularly about my mug even though years have passed because I’ve been using the same mug now for…jeez…probably 5 years or so. Before that, I had another one. And before that, I think it was the mug…Continue Reading

George Davison’s Invention Land

Davison launches “InventionLand,” not entirely dissimilar from Neverland – without Michael Jackson. The idea is simple, though the results sound very positive. Davison created InventionLand to host inventors in a creative environment where their minds can open up to possibilities as they did when we were children. The images and…Continue Reading
