sometimes its okay to be a winer

Here is a thought:

We have choices and consequences. You can whine, or drink wine.

I’m buying a vineyard.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

Steve Jobs uses the iPhone and Flash to demonstrate Leadership

August12

There is, or was, a fair amount of heat relative to Apple’s (well… Steve Jobs’) decision to give Adobe’s FLASH the cold shoulder.

However, as promised, if not simply hinted at, in this unworthy blog (shucks… who am I kidding?), and elsewhere, none of that really matters.

What does matter is that Steve makes vision-drenched decisions that drive people around the world to stretch, create, and be resourceful.

During my days as a fire fighter in Louisville, Colorado, my Battalion Chief called this: “being part of the solution, not the problem”.

This is a form of accountability that few people can immediately grasp.

That’s what leaders do.

And, it’s part of being a Heterodox.

So, here is an example, of just such a result:

Here is a thought: We have choices and consequences. you can whine, or drink wine.

I’m buying a vineyard.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

about that vineyard

August11

I’ve apparently struck a chord with the news I want to purchase a vineyard.

My preference would be Spain.

I’m not looking for investors or partners.

And, I don’t view this as a retreat. More so a platform.

Apparently, and according to Hemingway, and my Granddad, Spain is easier to defend (more about that some other time). And, the people are like none other on the planet. And, yes, I did predict Spain winning the World Cup. The mountain ranges of Spain influence the climates of many Spanish wine regions (and politics), isolating regions like Galicia in the northwest, and protecting the Rioja region from the rain and cool winds from the Bay of Biscay.

All of this, and it’s import, are things, and critical things, that Prudent and Optimistic Gentlemen understand.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

He said it, not Me

August10
This from the inestimable Dr. Anthony Mari, who happens to be a GREAT chiropractor, proactive health aficionado, and a hearty and ferocious entrepreneur…

The timing is of consequence as I am looking to buy a vineyard, and I recently discovered that Publix is carrying Fat Tire beer.

To wit:

“To my friends who enjoy a glass of wine… And those who don’t and are always seen with a bottle of water in their hand.

As Ben Franklin said:

In wine there is wisdom,

In beer there is freedom,

In water there is bacteria.

In a number of carefully controlled trials, Scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 litre of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli, (E. Coli) – bacteria Found in faeces (poo).

In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poo..

However, We do NOT run that risk when drinking wine & beer (or tequila, rum, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process

of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.

Remember:

Water = Poo,

Wine = Health

Therefore, it’s better to drink wine and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of shit.

There is no need to thank me for this valuable information…

I’m doing it as a public service!

CHEERS !!!

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
