I'm sorry... it's impossible to stay wordless on this one. Speechless, maybe... but not wordless. The tag line is funny, 'cause it's true. Governor F-Word is on his way, slowly, to learning how to make license plates by hand. Rachel Maddow (a democratic pundit) said on her show... "covering...
I'm not so think as you drunk I am. I don't anticipate spending much time online, Today... so I wanted to get a head start, and wish all my new Active Rain friends (and I do consider many of you "friends") a healthy, happy & prosperous new year! Alan May, et al.
... but the fruit of the poor lemon, is impossible to eat. For those of you who recognized the lyrics to Trini Lopez's legendary song "Lemon Tree"... man y'all are OLD! My Friend-in-the-Rain, Charles Buell, was kind enough to name me a lemon... (a LEMON?!)... because his 10 favourite RainyDay peo...
Okay, this is getting a bit too weird. This has full approval from Yoko Ono... and while it's a good cause, it feels a bit hinky, dontcha think? A pitch from beyond the grave... laptops didn't even exist when he died... and the voice... it IS John Lennon's voice, cobbled together, digitally from ...
Greg Nino's post about his biggest regrets of 2008, promoted me to post about Toxic Clients. You know who they are. * You cringe when you see their name on your caller ID.* You let their call go to voicemail... and you're not busy* You know their call will be confrontational* You never have a fi...

In keeping with my recent theme of "walks into a bar" jokes, here's my latest offering. A guy walks into a bar and sits on a barstool, and orders a beer. As the bartender is getting his drink, the man hears a small voice... "You look nice today". He looks quickly around the bar, and there app...
As 2008 winds to a close, this is the time to think about 2008's clients. Make sure their files are all up to date. Clean up your files, clean up your desk (in my case, see if I can FIND my desk)... get some fresh post-it signature arrows and post-it notes (I use a lot of those), some fresh CD-...
Okay, in keeping with my recent theme of "walks into a bar" jokes, here's my latest offering. It's not quite as easy to remember but it's clean, and funny, when told right. A duck waddles into a bar and hops on a stool. The bartender asks "What'll you have"?The duck says, (in his little duck v...
Anyone willing to go out on a limb, and put in writing their prediction for the viability of the 2009 economy and it's impact on the real estate market? Yeah... I didn't think so... okay, maybe if I go first? I'm not an economic optimist, nor am I one of Obama's crazy screaming fans, who faints a...
