The Big Fix


Have you ever felt scammed. Like the fix was in. Like the major companies we have no choice but to trust are colluding to keep prices artificially high. For most big oil, big banks or insurance company’s come to mind. Rarely are we handed the proof of the swindle on a silver platter.

The Real Cocaine

True Confessions of a Sugar Junkie


I have never been a drug user, not even recreationally. It was a scene that never appealed to me. Yeah, there was alcohol filled college parties and plenty of early mornings where the room would spin from the after effects. I never graduated to anything harder.

I Did Say Regularly…


Happy Thanksgiving 2014

I did say regularly it’s just that my definition of regular and yours are different. Guess the RIM Rant is irrelevant now hell they don’t even call themselves that anymore. Still love my Blackberry and I hope a once-great Canadian company makes a comeback and lays a beating on rival Apple!

So as everyone gears up for turkey dinner, or recovers if they celebrated last night, I wanted to take a moment to be thankful for everything I have. Life has fired some curveballs over the years but I have two wonderful children who are growing up smart and fast. A wonderful girlfriend who keeps me sharp, honest, and very, very happy along with her son.

I am lucky and thankful.

Hopefully some will like what they see and make this spot a regular stop on the information superhighway.

Happy blogging!
