    Same old stories: When I was 17-20 years old, there was a group of us guys that hung around with each other all of the time.  We did what a lot of people that age do, which is enjoy life, go to college, party, work, and get in to things that I would never do now, […]

    Some good lessons learned last week. Why the internet won’t replace people: Years ago someone told me to be sure I have the following professionals on speed dial.  An attorney, a doctor, a banker, an accountant, a mechanic, etc.  I am not sure who else they told me to be on that list, but this is […]
