Because I work as a professional writer, and have done so for the last 18 years at least, I've seen a few seasons of ups and downs. In our business the term "feast or famine" is extremely appropriate. There are times when we have more work than we kn...

25 Jan 2023 3 minute read 2 comments WinterYetiMonkey

There's nothing that sends shivers and anxiety through an organization faster than watching someone get fired. It's a bit like being on a colonial-era ship and watching someone walk the plank; you don't want to be that person, but it's also such a sl...

A year and a half a go, my house flooded. I live in a two-story, and the laundry machine for whatever reason was installed on the second floor. In any case, the installation of the machine was fine. However, a simple 10 cent piece, the bracket to kee...

When I started with crypto as a serious investment, it was the fall of 2019 and the world had yet to know what COVID stood for, much less a novel virus. The last time anything happened even got notice on the Western side of the ocean was when SARS wa...
