What does going to bed without dinner have to do with running a business?
I did have dinner, but I was feeling hungry late last night, a little too late to have something to eat. It brought back memories of a few years ago when I really did have to go to bed hungry most nights. I’m not complaining and for most of my life having enough food has never been a problem or even a concern, but for a time I couldn’t afford as much food as I should have been eating. I’d lay down most nights and listen to my stomach crying softly for sustenance. I’d wonder if tomorrow I would be able to afford dinner. I watched myself lose 30 pounds in a few short months. Don’t worry I’ve put it all back on in the years since.
Over the weekend congress quietly approved a bill that effectively makes online betting illegal in the United States. The bill makes it illegal for U.S banks and credit card companies to make payments to online gambling sites. The legislation was added to an unrelated bill by Republican Representative Jim Leach of Iowa. While not a big gambler myself this law is ridiculous and a slap in the face to civil liberty.
It’s the end of another week and I thought I’d leave everyone with something to play around with over the weekend. That is assuming you end up spending some time at the computer on the off days like I tend to do. About a week ago I came across a site offering an alpha version of a web operating system called YouOS and it looks pretty impressive.
My stepfather Irving passed away on Monday night February 6th shortly after 7:30 PM. Before I get back to my usual posting I wanted to say a few words about Irv’s life and death.
I may be absent from this blog for a few days. My stepfather has taken ill and is in the hospital and I have flown to New York to visit with him and my family for a few days.
As soon as I am back in Colorado which I think will be sometime later in the week I’ll get back to my normal routine and begin posting again.
