Greetings from an over the counter induced “vacation”

GREETINGS FROM the Home Office in Dublin Ohio.

 

While it may seem as if I do nothing while not on the road, this week has not been fun! It could be my new training routine, it could be some financial issues brought on by a client who does not want to fulfill the contracted agreement (MAYBE it is when they said deposit was “in the mail,” then follow up phone call stated “oh, we have decided to go with someone who will do in trade!”-and this is a project I have been working on since October with the event scheduled next week!?!?)

 

But I enjoy all the chances I get to work with many folks. However, not all go well, like the above, and another which causes me to be more than disappointed, and even concerned with “Daniella” and the staff at Tough Mudder.

 

At the event I had done for Tough Mudder, there was a failure of communication, and no accountability. Today that failure of accountability seems to continue when I have been informed that my sensitive tax ID information is involved in a “mishap,” and I have been requested to resubmit my information. I have not only witnessed this organizations poor management, but also a direct failure of accountability for actions and failures-placing my information in potential jeopardy. Due to this “mishap,” I would encourage athletes to utilize some other “adventure race” such as Spartan Race, Hell Run, or Warrior Dash. Due to my personal interaction, I also have concerns for all my friends in the Wounded Warrior Project as to how much of their information has been involved in a “mishap.”  For anyone who has participated in a Tough Mudder I would encourage you to call 718-643-2222 x1015 to assure your transactions are secure!

 

This is just one example of what is making this a rough week, but I am moving forward and looking to the future, and trying to help out a few others.

 

For ANYONE in a Band AND DJ’s. I am looking for a large number of bands, and DJ’s to play an early morning event on Saturday May 5 from (approx 8am-Noon). There is pay involved, and minimal to no work with exposure to over 15,000 people!!!

 

Here locally, THIS Friday, I AM IN TOWN and rock with some of Nashville’s Greatest Stars celebrating our buddy, James Gage’s Birthday at Peddler’s Lounge (I-71, and Jackpot Road) in Grove City. 614.539.1865 – 3977 Jackpot Road, Grove City, OH 43123

 

But I want to get back out on the road, the place where I look for success, hide from current situations, and try to find myself along that lonesome road. I am starting think that, “Anywhere is better than here?”

“Here” is a “state of mind.” The same state I often visit and try to take a vacation in, this week the state I am visiting is full of bright colors and hot flashes followed by cool breezes (much like watching the sunset on the beach). The reason for this is all the ClaritinAlka  Seltzer  Night-time, and Daytime Cold and Sinus that I have been using to try and keep my sinus’ dry. So the sunset I am seeing is more like a Salvador Dali picture with the sunset melting into bright colors before dipping into the ocean. The sinus’ may not be dry but just like when spending too much time on the beach, my lips are chapped, my face is bright red and just like when swimming in the surf…I have almost drowned from the sinus flush stuff I am have been using!     

 

But these “travels” I am doing while off the road are just part of a journey that someday will allow me to find out what the hell it is all for, at least I hope (maybe a destination where I can breath without sinus issues?).

 

As a friend of mine posted this week “There’s a sense of stability in trusting the Lord. That’s how we wait silently and with a sense of confidence. When we wait for God to direct our steps, He does! When we trust Him to meet our needs, He will!”

 

So I will just keep going in and out of my “vacations” with meds in hand, knowing it will all be ok!

DID YOU KNOW?:
Your Facebook status can be no longer than 63206 characters long!
The increase was more than 10x the previous maximum of 5,000 characters in September 2011. That’s extremely long. For comparison, you can fit 450 tweets (filled to the brim) in a Facebook status.
How did they arrive to such a specific number of characters? The answer is extremely nerdy. A Facebook engineer explained: “I set the exact limit to something nerdy. Facebook … Face Boo K … hex(FACE) – K … 64206 – 1000 = 63206 :-).”

What would you fill with over 63k characters?

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
Mister DJ, will you play me a song? (This was sent to me last week, and well I guess the person knows me better than I think some do…)

FUNNY:

YOU KNOW YOU ARE IN A REDNECK CHURCH WHEN:
1. People ask, when Jesus fed the 5000, whether the two fish were bass or catfish, and what bait was used to catch ’em.

2. The pastor says, “I’d like to ask Bubba to help take up the offering,” and then five guys and two women stand up.

3. Opening day of deer season is recognized as an official church holiday.

4. A member of the church requests to be buried in his 4-wheel-drive truck because “It ain’t never been in a hole it couldn’t get out of.”

5. The choir is known as the “OK Chorale.”

6. Boone’s Farm “Tickle Pink” is the favorite wine for communion.

7. In a congregation of 500 members, there are only seven last names in the church directory.

8. Baptism is referred to as “branding”.

9. There is a special fund raiser for a new church septic tank.

10. Finding and returning lost sheep isn’t just a parable.

11. High notes on the organ set the dogs on the floor to howling.

12. People think “rapture” is what you get when you lift something too heavy.

13. The final words of the benediction are, “Y’all come back now, ya hear?” (banjo accompaniment optional)

PASSING:
A great man who made some horrible mistakes has passed away today. Just goes to show be careful of the choices you make, you never know when your time will come, and you won’t have a chance to right a wrong you have done. Also a good reminder, that since we can be called at anytime…as moms say, make sure you have on clean underwear.

Experts say Joe Paterno’s dismissal could have hastened his death
Joe Paterno may have lost his place in the world when fired. Or he may have neglected cancer…
Did the hammer blow to Joe Paterno’s lifelong legacy hasten his death?
At least one national expert on aging said Paterno’s firing as football coach at Pennsylvania State University, and the accusation that he should have done more to prevent a sex-abuse scandal, could have diminished his will to live.

ENTERTAINMENT:
‘Hugo,’ ‘The Artist,’ Clooney Lead Oscar Nominees
Buzzed about silent black-and-white film “The Artist” and Hawaii-set dramedy “The Descendants,” starring George Clooney, both snagged multiple Oscar nominations on Tuesday, but it was Martin Scorsese’s kids adventure “Hugo” that led the pack with 11 nominations. All three movies landed best picture nods.

“The Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence, herself nominated for a best actress Oscar last year, helped announce the top nominees for this year’s 84th annual Academy Awards.

A non-traditional movie about the transition from silent film to talkies in 1920s Hollywood, “The Artist” also landed a best actor nomination for its French lead Jean Dujardin and a best director nod for Michel Hazanavicius. Clooney, disheveled as a vulnerable dad in “The Descendants,” claimed a best actor nomination as well, with filmmaker Alexander Payne following suit for best director. Both films revved up the Oscar race with best film and fest actor Golden Globes in drama and musical/comedy categories.

Other Oscar competition for best picture includes Woody Allen’s literary comedy “Midnight in Paris,” civil rights era ’60s maid ensemble “The Help,”  Steven Spielberg’s World War I fable “War Horse,” Terrence Malick’s experimental “Tree of Life,” baseball tome “Moneyball” and post Sept. 11 drama “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.”

‘Scorpions for Breakfast: My Fight Against Special Interests, Liberal Media, and Cynical Politicos to Secure America’s Border’-Jan Brewer

Sometime after dark on March 27, 2010, Arizona rancher Robert Krentz was found dead next to his four-wheeler on the grounds of his ranch on the Arizona-Mexico border. Krentz and his dog, Blue, had been missing since that morning. They were last heard from when he radioed his brother to say that he’d found an illegal alien on the property and was going to offer him assistance. The man Krentz encountered that day shot and killed him and his dog, without warning, before escaping to Mexico.

It’s difficult to overstate the impact of Krentz’s death, which turned the issue of Arizona’s unsecured border—a crisis that the federal government had repeatedly ignored—into a national concern. As Arizona sheriff Larry Dever said in his testimony before the Senate Homeland Security Committee, “We cannot sit by while our citizens are terrorized, robbed, and murdered by ruthless and desperate people who enter our country illegally.” This momentum helped pass SB 1070, a bill that authorizes local law enforcement under certain conditions to question persons reasonably suspected of being illegal aliens, which Governor Jan Brewer and the state legislature had been working on for months. With the passage of this controversial bill, the state of Arizona became ground zero in the impassioned debate over illegal immigration. The Democrats and the media went into overdrive, denouncing the state and its governor as racists and Nazis.

 

Governor Brewer, a lifelong Arizona resident with deep ties to the community, was first elected to the Arizona House of Representatives in 1982, and hasn’t lost an election since. As a state official, she watched with increasing dismay as illegal immigration exploded across Arizona’s border, and noticed the devastating effect it was having on the state. Causing an escalation in violence, an influx of drugs, and prisons and hospitals to fill to overflowing, this problem was not only wreaking havoc on the moral fabric of the community but placing an even greater strain on Arizona’s beleaguered health, educational, and social welfare networks. Growing frustrated with the failure of the federal government to respond to her pleas for assistance, Governor Brewer led the state to action. Scorpions for Breakfast is Brewer’s commonsense account of her fight to secure our nation’s border in the face of persistent federal inaction. Her book is vital reading for all Americans interested in the real change that can happen when local leaders take the initiative to preserve our country and our laws.

MILITARY:
During this campaign year, at least Barry has some balls?

Teams of Navy SEALs in helicopters staged an unprecedented night-time raid deep into Somalia’s pirate heartlands to free an American aid worker and her Danish colleague held hostage since October.

It was the first time in almost two decades – officially at least – that American boots landed on Somali soil, in an operation personally ordered by President Obama, who warned Wednesday he would “not tolerate the abduction” of Americans abroad.

POLITICS:
Arizona Governor and President Obama in ‘Tense’ Exchange
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and President Barack Obama apparently had a tense exchange on an airport tarmac shortly after Air Force One touched down outside Phoenix on Wednesday.

Obama appeared to walk away from the Republican governor while they were still talking, according to a White House pool reporter.  Brewer also confirmed it by admitting she didn’t get to finish her sentence.

UMMM?:

Dr. Williams Prediction – Obama 2012
WHY OBAMA WILL BE  RE-ELECTED IN 2012

Can  President Obama be defeated in  2012?  No.  He  can’t..
I am going on record as saying that   President Barak Obama will win a second  term.

The media  won’t tell  you this because a good election campaign means  hundreds of millions (or in Obama’s case billions) of dollars to them in advertising.

But the  truth is, there simply are no conditions under which Barak  Obama can be defeated in 2012.

The   quality of the Republican candidate doesn’t matter.    Obama gets reelected.
Nine percent unemployment?   No  problem.  Obama will win.

Gas  prices moving toward five   dollars a gallon?  He still wins.
The economy soars or goes into the  gutter.  Obama wins.
War in the Middle East ?  He wins a  second term.

America’s role  as the leading Superpower disappears?  Hurrah for Barak  Obama!
The U.S. government rushes toward  bankruptcy, the  dollar continues to sink on world  markets, and the price of daily goods and  services soars due to inflation fueled by Obama’s extraordinary  deficit spending?  Obama wins  handily.

You are crazy  Williams.  Don’t you understand how volatile politics can be  when overall economic, government, and  world  conditions are declining?  Sure I  do.

And that’s  why I know Obama will win.

The  American people are notoriously ignorant of economics.
And  economics is the key to why Obama should be  defeated.

Even when  Obama’s  policies lead the nation to final ruin, the majority  of the American people are going  to believe the bait-and-switch tactics Obama and his supporters in  the media will  use to explain why it isn’t his fault.
After  all, things were much worse than understood when he took   office.

Obama’s  reelection is  really a very, very simple math problem.   Consider the  following:
1) Blacks  will vote for Obama blindly.  Period.  Doesn’t matter what  he does.  It’s a race thing.  He’s one of   us.

2)  College educated women will vote  for Obama.  Though they will be offended by this, they swoon at  his oratory.

It’s really not more complex than  that.

3)  Liberals will vote for  Obama.  He is their great  hope.

4)  Democrats will vote for  Obama.  He is the leader of their  party and his coat  tails will carry them to victory  nationwide,

5)  Hispanics will vote for  Obama.  He is the path to citizenship for those who are illegal  and
Hispanic leaders recognize the  political clout they carry in the Democratic  Party.

6) Union  members will vote  overwhelmingly for Obama.
He is their  key to money and power  in business, state and local politics.

7)  Big  Business will support Obama.  They already  have.  He has almost $1 Billion dollars in his reelection purse
gained   largely from his connections with Big Business and  is gaining  more every day.  Big  Business loves Obama because he gives them access to taxpayer money
so long  as they support his social and political agenda.

8) The  media loves him.  They  may attack the people who work for him, but they love him. After all, to not love him would be  racist.

9) Most  other minorities and special  interest groups will vote for him.
Oddly, the overwhelming majority of Jews  and Muslims will support him because they won’t vote  Republican. American Indians will support him.   Obviously homosexuals tend to vote Democratic.  And  lastly,

10)  Approximately half of independents will vote for Obama.
And he  doesn’t need  anywhere near that number because he has all of  the groups previously mentioned. The  President will win an  overwhelming victory in 2012.
—   Dr.  Walter Williams

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?:
New school can’t be Cougars because middle-aged women might be offended
Students at a new Utah high school are facing disappointment after their choice for a new school mascot was rejected for one of the strangest reasons possible: Board members deemed it might be seen as offensive to middle-aged women.

As reported by Salt Lake City Fox affiliate KTSU, Draper (Utah) Corner Canyon High announced its new mascot and school colors on Wednesday, with Canyons School District officials proclaiming thatthe school’s teams will be called the Chargers, using a blue and white color scheme.

That’s all fine and good except for the fact that the school’s future student body — which was given the opportunity to select its own future mascot — had chosen to be the Cougars. With some 23 percent of the student vote, the Cougar choice was far preferred to other options, which included the Chargers, Diamondbacks, Falcons, Raptors, Broncos, Bears and Cavaliers.

The reason why the future student body gravitated toward Cougars is pretty clear: Area collegiate power BYU uses the Cougar as its mascot and enjoys an enormous fan base of area residents and those who follow the Mormon faith (BYU is a Mormon institution).

Bowling For $$: What Will The Buckeye Ban Cost?
Buckeye players, coaches and fans may be disappointed that the team will not be allowed to play in a bowl game after the 2012 football season but the NCAA-imposed ban is having a financial impact on those in the travel industry and stores that sell OSU merchandise.

“We got hammered, is the good word, and I think it’s going to have an effect” says George Kun of George Kun Travel. “I’m anticipating that it’s not going to be good and I think when it’s finally here it’ll be twice as bad.”

Ohio State has played in a bowl game in every season but three since 1977, when the Big Ten first allowed member schools to accept invitations to games other than the Rose Bowl.

“We’re spoiled, and blessed, I guess, with the string of bowl games that we’ve had and I think it’s going to hit Buckeye nation hard,” Kun said.

RELIGION:
Students open to different religions
Field trip’s aim is to build tolerance for people of other faiths
Sixth-grade girls throw the term “best friend” around a lot, but it’s clear Sarah Abdelbaki means it when she refers to Maia Kropp.

Sarah is 10 and Muslim. Maia is 11 and Jewish. Both are students at the Wellington School in Upper Arlington, and both went on a field trip yesterday to a church, a synagogue and a mosque.

The group learned about Christianity at Trinity United Methodist Church in Marble Cliff, Judaism at Congregation Beth Tikvah in Worthington and Islam at the Noor Islamic Cultural Center in Hilliard.

They’ve been studying monotheism in class, where their teachers say they want to expose the children to different faiths and viewpoints now while they’re young and open to new ideas.

The hope is that they will grow into tolerant adults who respect differences. Most of the students said they had never been to a house of worship of a different religion.

Sarah and Maia said they don’t talk much about religion, but rather more about the things they have in common: a love of drawing and Greek mythology. Sarah even learned some Greek letters online and taught them to Maia, and now they write notes that no one else can read.

“We have some different beliefs and different ways of doing things, but we can still be best friends,” Sarah said.

FINANCE/BUISNESS:
The 6 Least Impressive Ways Anyone Ever Got Rich

Most of us don’t think of our ideal success story as “Work hard for 40 years and earn enough for a modest retirement.” We want to hit the home run and get rich while we’re still young enough to enjoy it. And most of us aren’t exactly knocking ourselves out looking for our million-dollar idea — it’s more about hanging around and hoping a reality-TV producer will decide to turn our life into an even less eventful version of Jersey Shore.

Well, we have to admit that does sometimes happen. Here’s your inspiration, slackers:

#6. Getting Rich for Wearing a T-Shirt
Sometimes, the more blatantly intelligence-insulting an idea is, the better it works. Perhaps nowhere is this as true as within the world of advertising, where the dumbest ideas can bring fame and fortune, to the point where it seems that the ad companies flat out don’t give a shit about anything anymore. The good news is that you don’t need to be a snazzy ad executive to get your piece of that sweet, sweet money cake. Hell, you don’t even need to work.

#5. Making Millions by Grabbing the Right Web Domains
Websites are like women — the best names were already gone by the mid-’90s. But unlike today’s parents, who have turned to made-up words and geography in their search for good names, the Internet has turned to commerce. Domain names are a huge business, with professional investors and manuals and everything.

“Chapter One: Beginner Time Machining”
And holy shit you could have made some serious coin if you happened to jump on the train before anyone even realized there was a train. Take Chris Clark, the guy who registered the domain name Pizza.com in 1994, hoping this newfangled “Internet” thing would help his consulting company score a deal with a pizza business somehow. He ended up maintaining the domain for $20 a year for 14 years, using it as a small time advertising directory, until one day he realized that both pizza and Internet seem to be doing alright and someone might actually be interested in paying a buck or two for his domain. The second the domain name went up for auction, every pizza company in the world went apesh*t and a bidding war ensued.

The man eventually netted $2.6 million.

#4. The $3 Million Bounce

Phil Ozersky, a longtime Cardinals fan, genetic researcher and caretaker of his paralyzed father, just happened to be sitting at Busch Stadium when Mark McGwire hit his 70th home run. Like everyone else who cared even vaguely about baseball at the time, he was caught up in the home run race between McGwire and Sammy Sosa, when bounce … the ball that broke the record plopped from a coworker’s hands into his own.

So, that’s a nice souvenir, right? Maybe something to give the kids when they grow up? Ha, no. It turns out that sitting in that specific seat (out of 47,000) on that particular day meant he was about to get “You don’t have to work again” money.

#3. Thrift Store Declaration of Independence
So you’re rumbling through a thrift store when you spot a cheap-ass-looking copy of the Declaration of Independence. What do you do? If your answer is, “What the hell? How is that even a question? Of course I will leave that shit where it lies,” then good for you! You just saved $2.48. If you say, “Of course I’ll buy the shit of that shit. Shiiiit,” then congratulations! You’re Michael Sparks, and you’ve just earned yourself $477,000.

Just a few tea mop-ups and it’ll be as good as old.
It turns out an actual, official copy of the Declaration of Independence that was commissioned by John Quincy Adams in 1820 was found slumming in the thrift store circuit.

 

#2. The World’s Luckiest Cafeteria Chef
Imagine you’re a chef looking for a new job. You’re no newbie in the business, and in fact you command a pretty decent salary — it’s just that you feel like doing something different. Out of your employment options, one company sticks out in particular. They’re not offering you anything spectacular — in fact, the salary would be roughly half of what you’re currently getting — but there’s health benefits, and the owners seem like a pretty decent bunch. They’re a fledgling software company, and they want you to come cook in their cafeteria.

“No, don’t worry about OSHA certification. We’re a wacky company with scooters that plays against the rules.”

Adorably, the new company even offers you a bunch of stock options you can cash in should they ever hit it big. It all seems pretty cute, so you accept their offer. Startups are always happy to throw around stock options as an incentive (it’s risk-free, because the options are worth nothing, and will continue to be worth nothing unless the company takes off). So, you run the company’s cafeteria for several years, no big deal.

Less than 10 years later, you cash in your stock options and leave a cool $26 million richer.

Because the company in question was a little operation called “Google.”

#1. The Serial Lottery Winner
If good fortune were a finite resource, the amount Joan Ginther has been hogging would be responsible for the misfortunes of the entire Third World. This Texas math professor made her reputation as a goddamn human cloverleaf by winning

the Texas lottery in 1993, winning a cool $5.4 million.

Then she did it again in 2006, this time winning $2 million.

Then in 2008, she buys yet another lottery ticket because what the hell, she can afford it. And she wins again, for $3 million this time.

“I only do this to see what the poor people do with their meager disposable income. It’s a hoot.”

Seriously, now. What the hell are the odds of somebody winning three tim —
Wait, what?

In 2010, she won again? And for the biggest jackpot yet — $10 million?

HEALTH:
3 Surprising Reasons to Give Up Soda

By now, it’s probably fair to say that most Americans know soda isn’t a health-promoting drink. Over the years, the carbonated beverage has been blamed for the obesity epidemic and rising healthcare costs. Some public health experts have even called for a soda tax to help deter people from drinking so much of it. While love handles and diabetes are obvious problems associated with soda, drinking the sweet carbonated beverages harbors hidden threats, too.

1.  It causes invisible fat buildup around your organs.

2. Some contain toxic flame retardants.


3. You’re taking part in the biggest science experiment on the planet.

INSPIRATION:.

Dog Found Shot, Starving Has ‘Will To Live’

SUCCESS:
DETERMINATION
“The difference between the impossible & the possible lies in a person’s determination. ” Tommy Lasorda “What this power is I cannot say; all I know is that it exists & it becomes available only when a man or woman is in that state of mind in which he knows exactly what they wants & is fully determined not to quit until they find it.” Alexander Graham Bell

Determination is the very essence of making things look as it were divine intervention when in fact it was nothing short of the inner will to make things happen! Nothing can never replace a determined heart, determined mind, & determined will.

Determination is the driving force of success in our lives; without it we just live a mediocre, mundane life, which is just unacceptable! Get determined!-Doc

 

QUOTES:

There is no problem in business that cannot be solved by more revenue.
-Warren Buffet (or political dealings that can be helped, or maybe a secretary tax blunder?) I used to respect Warren Buffet as a renegade business person who did things on his own, and shoved his thumb in the nose of the Government. I WAS WRONG, he is corrupt and had become a pawn for The Obama Administration-helping to fuel Barry’s political machine, and make millions in the process!)

 

‎”The more reasons you have for achieving your goal, the more determined you will become.” – Brian Tracy

 

“Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience.” – Paulo Coelho
CLOSING:
“Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.” – Kahlil Gibran

 

We’re not telling you it is going to be easy, we’re telling you it is going to be worth it.
