Peeling Back The Curtain – Things You Don’t Want to Know About the Internet

Preface: Warning:The contents of this article are not for the faint of heart. It’s disturbing, and not appropriate for children. Read it at your own risk. I originally approached my editors and publishers with the idea for this article because I feel most of our society is numb to things we should never let ourselves get desensitized to. The short version of the story is: they don’t feel their software offers a solution to the problem and therefore it’s too incendiary an article to publish just for the sake of shocking readers. I personally DO think their software is a great tool to battle what you’re about to see, but out of respect for their wishes, I’m leaving that part of the article out. Peeling Back The Curtain Forget what you think you know of the Internet. Forget the world of fun kid’s games and little Mary chatting with her friends … Read the rest…

$1000.00 Free Software Giveaway!

It doesn’t always hurt being famous for awhile. Some good can sometimes come out of it. Earlier today I shared that you viewers made it possible for us to become the #11 in the nation for donations made to the MDA this year. A couple hours later, I get a call from SpectorSoft. They came up with this idea all on their own as a way to thank you guys for your support of their software. SpectorPro and Eblaster are two of the  best parental monitoring tools out there for protecting your kids. Hands-down, they simply rock compared to the others. What’s the downside? Well, part of being the best is spending a lot of money in research and development and that translates into a higher cost for the consumer when the product comes to the market. So, in short, the programs are out of the budget for some families … Read the rest…

Pat yourselves on the back – We Won for MDA

Every one of you out there who contributed to the MDA fund raising I did this year deserves a huge pat on the back! Together between the donations via Facebook, Twitter, e-Bay toy car and train donations, eBay Laptop Donation, Spectorsoft Promotions, and OMJ Promotions, you guys made it possible for the MDA to raise almost TEN THOUSAND dollars for these kids! We had so much success, thanks to all of you, that I just got off the phone with the Director of MDA in North Carolina (Elizabeth Kayed). Together we were #11 in the entire nation! Let me say that again: Only TEN people in the ENTIRE United States raised more money for the MDA than we did! You guys and gals are awesome and deserve a huge pat on the back, both for the success we had in being one of the top donors and for the amazing … Read the rest…

6 Months, Life Changes

I’m going to start referring to time in BY and AY terms before long. Before Youtube/After YouTube. Who ever could imagine something like a YouTube video would change someone’s life like it has our lives around here. It certainly happens every day all across the world. One individual or another posts something on YouTube that changes their lives forever. I just never thought I’d meet anyone affected in such a way; much less become one of “those” people. lol Well, today it’s official. I’ve been drafted! The editors and staff over at ParentingTodaysKids.com reached out to me awhile back and asked me to consider being a regular columnist. I thought about it for a long time, talked to my wife about it, my friends about it, and I’ve decided to take them up on their offer. I have a lot of people that choose to read what I write, for … Read the rest…

How I Survived – Thanks Totally to LegalShield

It’s been six months since my own personal D-Day event… when the internet exploded all over me and my family. In that time there have been more things happen to me and my family than you can imagine; some good, some bad, some as yet unknown. I’ve been a member of Legal Shield for over a decade, and I’ve been a sales rep for them for just as long, though I’ve hardly ever sold a single account. If you’re a steady reader of the blog you might remember a few months back I made a post about them and said if you wanted to sign up, you should use my friend’s link. (That way he’d make the commission.) Six months later, I’m taking the time to write this and share a few things with you; specifically How they helped me before I became famous. How they helped me after I … Read the rest…

Social Darwinism? Bring it on VP Ryan!

If he means them and lives up to what he says, the words “We promise equal opportunity, not equal outcomes” should be crafted and put into song, to be sung from the White House. I don’t know a lot about Romney’s VP Candidate, Ryan yet, but I’m learning and what I see so far seems OK with me. He’s not the best, but he certainly makes me feel better about what we’re looking ahead to in this coming year or two. Obama cast him down; calling the Ryan approach “thinly veiled social Darwinism” which personally, I think we’re a little overdue for. We could use a little Darwinism in a lot of areas in our society. When did simply being born entitle anyone to be given things? When did “because I’m a human being” mean that someone had the right to take from others to give to you? Why? Because … Read the rest…
