A New Idea From An Old Way to Profit

A New Idea From An Old Way to Profit

For those sites ... More »

Just What Is SPAM?

Just What Is SPAM?
One thing's for sure - it ain't Some Place Around Mississippi. To those not familiar with the internet or computing, it likely means that "wonder" of processed and pressed pork products, officially termed "Spiced Meat", that Hormel Foods Corp. created in 1937. To the rest of us though it can be a... More »

Webmaster vs. Member

Webmaster vs. Member
I have asked myself many times "Why it is that some of us desire to be the Webmaster, while others of us are content to play along as the member?" Could it be that just as photographers and models share a voyeur / exhibitionist relationship, that surfers and Webmasters enjoy the same type of unackno... More »

Joe Versus The House

Joe Versus The House
Last weekend I had the occasion to visit my friend Joe at his three-bedroom apartment located just south of Wilshire in West Los Angeles. As I walked up the steps and knocked on the door, ready for an evening of apple martinis and lemon drops, my phone rings. I reach to answer it and am greeted by t... More »

The Balance Between Work and Play

The Balance Between Work and Play
So, how long has it been since you took a break? As today is Labor Day here in the United States (a day that most people traditionally have "off" from work), I thought it an appropriate question.
