Here’s to 5 More Years!

In July of 2011, I started a new blog. I wasn’t new to blogging by any means. I had an Angelfire webpage or two back when we first got the Internet back in the late 1990s.

How I’m Investing in Myself

Last week, I woke up in the middle of the night and just could not get back to sleep. I was tossing and turning for hours. My back and neck were killing me. Laying down hurt.
