The Illuminated Ones

Do you need lights? has almost every possible light designed and thought of by man. Boat lights, flash lights, LED lights, hunting lights, and spotlights are all available through their website. In fact, they even have a few lights that I hadn’t even thought of.
If we didn’t have artificial light, we would have trouble seeing in the dark. Take some time to browse this website to see how far Thomas Edison’s brilliant invention has come in the last 100 years. Remember, 100 years is a relatively short time when you consider the history of man on the planet. Your not so distant ancestors used moonlight and firelight to see in the dark, and I am sure they would be amazed and thrilled if they could see the lights for sale at It is a bit of a shame (but it is to be expected) that we now take such amazing devices for granted.
If I were going to buy a light from just for fun, I would buy a huge spotlight and put a cardboard cutout of a bat in the center of it, and then shine it on the clouds just to see if a real bat-signal is feasible.
So if you are into being illuminated you should checkout the site and take a look at the different lights that are available. You will be glad that you did.

Back to Work

I haven't had much time to update this blog recently. Ten years ago, I started a career in the car business. Three years ago, I sold what I thought would be my last car as I transferred to a segment of the dealership that didn't involve the actual selling of automobiles. Two years ago that department was closed and I was out of work. One week ago I re-entered the workforce as a car salesman, in the branch of Internet sales.

Things have really changed since I last sold cars. Banks don't buy deals as much as they used to, and dealerships have drastically reduced inventory. Many of the ultra cheap used cars have been sold for the metal or turned in on the cash for clunkers program, where they will be crushed and sold for scrap.

I believe that by maintaining a high level of professionalism, and working harder (and smarter) than I ever have in my life, I will be able to achieve a modicum of success.

I had left the sales world due to the lack of sales, which was in large part due to the economy. I have returned because the economy isn't exactly offering a lot of other jobs right now.

50 hour work weeks don't allow a lot of time for posting. However, I love blogging and reading blogs, so this blog will not be going away. I still plan on posting, it just can't be as frequently as what it was in the past. And it's not a bad thing to be working and making money again. The last week has done wonders for my self esteem, and besides that I was getting tired of eating hot dogs and chicken livers.

Web Hosting Geeks

Web Hosting Geeks
I have a fantasy I would like to share with all of you. I want to start a website that offers a service, like writing or forum posting, and make enough money to support myself. The first order of business is to find a web host that is going to suit my needs. I need to balance how much money I want to spend versus the types of features that I need on my website.
Web Hosting Geeks Dot Com has a list of web hosts. After browsing the site for just a few minutes, it’s a breeze to find a web site hosting company that is going to meet all of my needs. If you are thinking about starting your own site, I highly recommend Web Hosting Geeks as a starting place to find the right web host.
They also have a great blog that offers free tips on building your own website. I found the post “How to Invest in a Domain Name” to be extremely helpful.
Before you undertake any type of business or adventure, it’s important that you do research. Web Hosting Geeks Dot Com is a great place to get started on that research. They even have an awards section for different web hosts. I definitely intend to use this site when I am ready to roll out my online business.
