I'm not nuts.....honest.

If you were to walk into our'd kinda be able to tell I like computers. Between my son and I-we have 3 laptops, 2 desktops and a new 13 inch MacBook pro on the way.

I've had several inquirys about Apple in the past year and since I've never had one before...I've had to turn down business.

Turning down business ain't a very good business strategy if you wanna build a business so I took the plunge and layed out a fair amount of money for one of their machines.

Sure hope my plan it makes me some money. I have a year to pay for it and also gotta pay back my pop for a loan I took out to get everything off the ground.

Making a little pocket money sure is expensive:-)

Trying to figure out why the cheapest laptop I can buy from Apple is over a thousand bucks for a 13 inch screen.

I want to learn how Apples work so I can add them to my repertoire. I've had a few client inquiry's about setting them up...not really sure how they work or much of anything else about them. I figure the best way to learn is to buy one and figure it out for myself.

Anyone out there have a good reason why they are so damn expensive?

till later.

Nobody believes me..............

When I tell folks I'm almost 50 years old....they usually put me at around late 30's or maybe 40. I suppose part of it is that I don't act my age.....and part of it is the fat cells in my face pushing out the wrinkles. son and I are gonna invite one of my nephews over to light some of my old model cars on fire and roll them down the driveway.

Doesn't sound very mature for a 50 year old.....screw that-I wanna have fun and what 10 year old nephew wouldn't enjoy having fun lighting plastic model cars on fire with an adults permission? Hell, I'd like to set a full size car on fire and roll it down the street, but I think I might get in trouble for that.

Most folks over 50 probably ain't gonna see any humor here.....

Now I ain't the bestest speller in the world, but maybe Grandma shoulda ran this sign past one of her grandkids before she let herself loose.

Long after she's dead....her image will still be on the Internet.

The Internet is forever.

I'm not complaining, mind you......

One week....absolutely no consulting at all. Zip, nada, zilch.

This upcoming week....I'm almost completely booked for the week and it's only Sunday.

If you live anywhere in Central know that this week is York Fair week. I typically don't go, I really don't like being in large crowds of people....and if you've been in a rundown Wal-Mart lately-those are the same people that go to the fair.

How come Apple releases a new version of iTunes every 4 days? It keeps asking me if I want to I want you to leave me the hell alone so I can play my stuff.

Never drive DWI...let a 6 year old do it......

Mom said there would be days like this.....

So......I was showing a new associate how to drain and filter the shortening in the donut fryer. I carefully explained what to do and what not do......and proceeded to do a "what not to do".

Things could be worse.....I worked at a place 20 years ago that had a 500 gallon shortening spill....that was a mess.

It always helps to look on the bright side when you screw stuff can always be worse, whatever-my trainee and I both got a laugh out of my clumsiness. Now he how knows what a "what not to do" looks life in real life.

till later.

Best time of the year.......

Back when I was a kid....summer was my all-time favorite season. Now that I'm a tad bit older-it's tough to beat the 8 weeks of September and October. Cool crisp mornings...humidity free in the daytime and nice and cool in the evening.

This week at work, I'm training a new associate on the fine art of baking and donut making. If I had my druthers...I'd be training people all the time-it's one of my favorite things to do. The gentleman I'm working with this week is semi-retired and was looking for something extra to do. It's always a pleasure to work with more "mature" associates....

I may sound like an old whippersnapper, but kids nowadays could learn a few things from us older guys.

This is one of my favorite shows. Pretty cool how pawn shops work but I enjoy the interaction between the grandfather, the son and the grandson. My dad, me and my son are pretty tight as well...maybe we oughta start a business together.

I dunno...but if I owned a store with tons of shiny new computers-I'd have a steel grate across the door when I wasn't open.

I was on Facebook and saw one of my coworkers baby girl....awww she is soooo adorable. I can hardly wait for grandkids. Our daughter is still in college so there isn't a rush, but it will be so cool when it happens.

I like maps and I like science...way cool site.

Biggest WTF? I've seen for awhile....this however, comes in at a close second place.
