The horse-drawn dray, carting the prisoner, was accompanied by an armed guard, who would stop the dray outside the pub and ask the prisoner if he would Like ''One last drink''. If he said, "Yes," it was referred to as, "One for the road." If he declined, that prisoner was, "On the wagon." T hey used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families would urinate in a pot and...

You read that right. In business, competition is for losers. You don’t believe that. Of course you don’t. So let’s try this. Competition is a game. Like any game you win or lose or tie. In business, forget the tie. It’s another name for lost. However, if you don’t play you can’t lose, while you can still win. Sounds crazy. It’s not. Let’s say your a florist with another florist right across the street. They do a booming business with funerals, wakes that sort of thing. So what do you do? Compete for that business. No, because competition is for... Continue reading
EnKernow, a heartfelt thank you. It's good to know that those with true technical expertise are out there. While easy to use tools make much available to the general public, they find themselves in a bind when they want an upgrade that goes beyond what their 'tool' allows. While I love the web, I must say that editing sites created by machine is no fun. And not something we intend to do any more of. Thank you for your comments.

1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity. 2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. 3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. 4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. 5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work, because somebody...

Content, content publishing, and content marketing are big buzz wards these days. Let's take another look. So why do we say content is something for nothing? Simple, you trace something that is being supplied free of charge for something of great value. If that's not the definition of something for nothing what is? Truly good content, meaning content that is consumed, viewed, acted upon must be superb. And it's not cheap to create. Then you give it away for free. That's right, it's not sold. It's free. In return you get mind-share - eyes on your content - this translated... Continue reading

Dead Ancestors . . . It was only a typographical error. While the word "decadent" was intended, that's not what was written. the writer meant a decadent desert; meaning self-indulgent. But "Decedent" is what was written, meaning deceased ancestors. And dead ancestors for desert is not the same thing; not at all. Embarrassing? Sure, but no harm done. Right? Not This Time. when this happens to you can be sure it won't be so funny. No it won't. Content matters. You've got one shot to get it right. Don't waste it. Continue reading
