It seems that other than January 2017, when I wrote a post a day, I only wrote 6 other posts for the year.. the last one being in November. I wish I had a really good reason for that but I don’t. Still, I’m going to get a bit more personal than I usually do anywhere else because I think it’ll help me mentally.
I’m the owner of 5 blogs, and I write for 2 others. I make sure I write an article a week for my two main blogs but for the others I write something when I get a chance to put something together. Last year was the lowest output of articles I’ve ever had, even though I still wrote 159 of them, not counting what I wrote on this blog. That means I average a new article every 2.3 days, which isn’t all that bad except I made no money off any of it; I need to do better in that regard. Oh yeah, I also created 87 videos for 2 YouTube channels. Read the rest of this entry »
Finally! For the last few years I’ve been looking for a Chinese restaurant in the Liverpool area that was at least passable. Now there’s one that I actually like a lot, and it appears I’m not the only one.
In the same space next to Aldi’s on Route 57 in Liverpool, a space previously held by first Kawa Japanese Restaurant and then Fu Wa Asian Restaurant now sits China 88 Restaurant… and it’s definitely a keeper! Read the rest of this entry »
Chocolate is one of the most popular flavors in the world; it’s certainly my favorite flavor. 🙂 It can be used as a drink, be eaten, used to create scents, and a host of other things. It can also be modified so that the same beginning product can take on many different tastes, textures, and flavors. There are literally hundreds of thousands of recipes that involve chocolate.
This article isn’t a total love affair about my favorite treat. I decided to mix a bit of history and health into the mix, just to show that I’m not shallow about my love for the stuff. It’s obvious I’m not alone, but it’s also funny that it’s gone through many changes, wasn’t always liked, and in some variations even offer health benefits. Read the rest of this entry »
A few months ago my wife and I stopped at a place called The Guest House. She wanted to see the layout for how to present her dichroic jewelry for some kind of show where many people were going to be sharing their wares. I stayed in the car while she went inside, but within a few minutes she’d opened the front door and waved me inside and introduced me to Sharron Pearson, the owner.
To say I was astonished with what I was seeing would be an understatement. Both of us thought it would look like a lot of empty space. Instead, it looked likes the inside of a very nicely decorated house. Later on I found out there’s an upstairs that’s decorated and laid out nicely for larger groups and parties.

Scott Gardner is the owner of Agilé Marketing Services. I’ve known Scott for about 14 years, and he’s always offered great insight into the branding and marketing process. He’s worked both with local and national clients, helping them get more clients and business by sometimes using what others might term unorthodox principles but which are actually dynamic and logical. I hope you enjoy this interview; if you do, Scott answered more questions on another blog of mine.
1. Let’s get this out of the way first. Which dorms did you live in at SUNY Oswego and how did you enjoy the experience?
My wife wouldn’t let me live in the dorms! Hehe. I actually got my degree at Oswego just after 2000, when I was already in my late 30’s. I have a very nice house near Phoenix, on a small hill across from a cemetery. The neighbors are quiet. Mostly. Read the rest of this entry »
