Me oh my
what to say about what I do that the masses would find interesting, or maybe I should skip Web Dev all together, but then I've been doing a lot of that lately
okay, for quite some time, but we aren't really keeping track now, are we? Okay, so we are, but no biggie, right? Hey, I know, let's play a little Blog Roulette I'll just spin my mind and see what inspirational tidbit I come up with
okay, I'm spinning, I'm getting inspired, I've almost got it, it's within my mind's grasp, yes, that's it, let's go back to March 11th to
wish me a belated 52nd birthday
Personal Computer Engineer

Some people have Personal Trainers, some have Personal Chefs
I have a Personal Computer Engineer! He wasn't very easy to come by it was a long, arduous labor of sorts, which led to years of training him for the task, and the financial outlay was tremendous, but it has paid off over and over again! It's taken 27 years to get him to this point, but
my oldest son, Rob, was more than worth the effort!
With love to my computer-engineer-of-a-son, from this very proud Mom!!!

I'm taking my life back
I'm facing my fears
I'm going home.
a cheap (actually FREE) way to get on the Web
03.23.05 - 9:12 pm (CT)
The Web proves that not all business is local, but a heck of a lot of it is, which is where Google Local
comes in. Google
is now offering a FREE local business directory
where anyone, anywhere, at anytime can "find local businesses and services on the web". This is great for the consumer who just wants to find out that you're there and where there is, which, of course, is great for business.
As a business owner, all you need to do to get listed is signup at the Google Local Business Center
and then "you can create and display a business listing for free". It not only doesn't "cost you a thing", but "you have full control over your listing", so that "qualified prospects" looking "for the products and services you offer" can find you easily, with up-to-date (by you) information about your business. For those of you (and you know who you are) who don't yet have a website, well this gives you a FREE way to get on the Web, and if you already have a website, then you get a quality, relevant link to it with no cash outlay and very little effort.
It only took a few minutes for me to fill out the information for Pageminders
, which is my little Web design business
that my passing thoughts here at MindBlog
are supposed to be referencing (okay, so lately there hasn't been much Web talk here
picky, picky, picky). Anyway, with the little bit of time and no money involved, a business owner would have to be nuts not to take advantage of the brand spanking new Google Local Business Directory
My FREE Google Local
listing is going to be up and running in just a few weeks and should look something like this:
Oh well, or going with the flow
03.14.05 - 7:42 am (CT)
We all have times in our lives where there isn't much, if anything, we could or should do about whatever has happened, is happening, or is about to happen. Sometimes we just have to let people make their own mistakes, live with the consequences of their actions
, and hope they learn from those mistakes. Sometimes in life we need to realize that we are trying to swim upstream against some of life's heavy currents and all would be better off if we would just say, "Oh well" and go with the flow, as it were.
I've had a lot of "Oh well" times lately
(Belated) felicitations to myself!

A great big MindBlog
Celebrations of one sort or another
03.04.05 - 8:16 am (CT)
Well, tonight starts the annual celebration of Manhattan's Irish heritage Irish Fest
! Actually those of Irish and German heritage founded the town, but this weekend everyone in town is "Irish", so if you're in the area, stop on by for a little Guinness, rugby, step dancing, and don't forget the parade! I'll be working at the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce
booth in the Entertainment Tent, so if you come to our party, stop by the booth, introduce yourself, and do mention MindBlog, which will get you
basically nothing, but a "Glad you came!"
Words and Actions

Words have meaning and actions have consequences
just a passing thought to mull over and when you're done mulling, try to have a nice day.
